I'm changing my name.That's right. I'm changing my DA name.I'm changing my name.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've thought long and hard and have decided to change it toooooo.......
That's right; i'm one of the few artists here on DA that seems content with my name. That; and I think changing a "brand" simply because you can, after you've spent time and energy building up an audience is f**king stupid.
I've been here for years. I've operated on the internet under "jollyjack" for longer. If I changed that now it would be monumentally confusing to people that follow my work, which, in turn, would have an effect on revenue.
There are a ton of artists here whose work I keenly follow, and I think they're kinda shooting themselves in the foot by doing this.
Kinda reminds be of those little label-making things everyone's been given on at least one Christmas as a kid: you unwrap it, you find out what it does and you spend the rest of the day punching out new tags for everything. Even if they'

Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.Tired of the Video Game Industry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know

History Repeats ItselfLast week a Connecticut action group going by the name of SouthingtonSOS held a video game burning event where local citizens were encouraged to bring various forms of violent media to be burned in a dumpster, no doubt a reaction to the recent Connecticut shooting.History Repeats Itself2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wish I could say I am surprised about this, but sadly the whole media frenzy surrounding violence in video games and movies reminds me of something that already happened once and profoundly affected the media it was accusing: Comic books.
During the early days of comic books, things occasionally got a little risqué. EC Horror comics in particular delighted in rendering extremely gruesome images and disturbing themes in their comics, which were being sold to children unbeknownst to their parents (because naive parents at the time had no reason to suspect comics might contain "inappropriate" material). However all that changed in 1954.
German-American psychiatrist Fredric Wertham was upset about how disturbing some of those

DOUBLE K + KICKSTARTER!!!You guys remember that big announcement re: DOUBLE K's future I mentioned a little while back? WELL STRAP IN, after working many many hours on it, IT'S HEREDOUBLE K + KICKSTARTER!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
DOUBLE K's easily been the most fun comic I've ever worked on, both in terms of my being proud of the content and in terms of bein' able to make a seriously awesome bunch of folks happy. BUT, I've never been able to give it the time and attention I really wanted to, given the demands of my day job and its erratic, hectic schedule.
You know what, though? SCREW THAT.
I'm gonna go ahead and assume that you folks want what I want, which is to see DOUBLE K barrel non-stop toward its staggeringly explosive conclusion (and believe you me, it is already written and it is an outrageous, not-to-be-missed ending). And I've tried to get that momentum going before, but work always had to come first eventually. Not so anymore. &
Series Contest??Hi people!Series Contest??2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I'm going to host a contest starting I guess now lol to the end of November! I'm making a new series called 365 and it has personified seasons. I have designed Winter and Autumn but not Spring and Summer yet. Yeah, yeah, it's dumb, but whatever I just wanna have fun. xD
So what the contest is: A character design for Spring OR Summer, and/or a logo design for the title.
Spring and Summer: You don't have to draw both of them (unless you wanna). They could be any gender really, but probably preferably girls. Don't draw anything inappropriate 'cuz I'm all good and stuff like that. They IF YOU WANT could have ears and a tail of a certain animal (see Autumn as a reference), but no full fledged furries. Dress them in clothes I guess people would wear during those seasons. They can be I guess teenager age to young adults, but it doesn't really matter. Be color

Well....if by "world" he means "Pakistan".....
....and I think that's probably down to Obama giving the greenlight to the operation that saw US Special Forces conduct a cross-border raid into Pakistan which resulted in a very dead Bin Laden. They're still kinda cranky about that.
Posted for no reason other than that it's really, really funny.

Takes a while to get used to, though. Certain things (usually insults) just sound better when said with the right accent, be it English or American.
The AvengersYou know that giddy, gleeful feeling that renders you incapable of doing little more than giggle like a lunatic?The Avengers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much had that from start to finish during the Avengers film (Which was released on Fair Blighty's shores as "Avengers Assemble" thanks to the past efforts of Steed and Peel).
There have only been a handful of movies that invoked that kind of response in me: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Abram's Star Trek, Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and the first Iron Man film are those which immediately spring to mind.
Indeed; Avengers is THE best Marvel movie since Iron Man. Ace cast, brilliant story, hysterical script, a scene that will stab anyone that's followed the films leading up to this point right through the heart and a fair few more surprises.
Chief among them being; how the hell did the Hulk become such a f**king awesome character after so many naff films?
I'm gonna go see this one again!

been a wacky, ultra-busy couple of weeks but who cares about that, what is important is:
1. New pages of DK start up tomorrow morning
2. Look what just showed up and I had to share with you immediately, couldn't even wait to find a proper backdrop/decent lighting
SO HAVE YOU DEMANDED IT
SO SHALL IT BE
Better photos/order info coming VERY soon
(note: that was as high as the graphic could be printed, but it actually works out pretty perfectly since a full shot takes you just beyond the top of the meter. you'll see when I get some photos with some WHISKEY in there)
(note 2: print quality is REALLY nice, my camera is balls and totally does not capture it)
Disney closes LucasArtsF**k you, Disney. F**k you.Disney closes LucasArts1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you are not angered by this news, you're obviously a very young gamer and probably (rightly) see LucasArts as nothing more than a mediocre-Star-Wars-title-discharging-sewer-pipe.
Disney bought LucasFilm because of the Star Wars cash-cow, but the number of classic IPs produced by LucasArts throughout the 90s makes the descision to close it rather than attempt to return to the studio to its glory days pretty staggering.
I actually see way more potential in LucasArts IPs than Star Wars.....but then, so would anyone with even the most stunted of creative minds.
Disney obviously still own all the properties, but the LucasArts brand is gone, and it's the end of an era, even if they start picking at the corpse for ideas to ruin.
