It's from Yugioh. But...seriously? This is the monster design they were going for with this guy? Couldn't the dragon head be on his tail or something?
I know the Japanese can be weird at times, but really, guys? Who got wasted on the sake to make this monster?
I think I'm gonna go cuddle with Neltharion. Because that scares me.
A little stressed...Personal Art?What? I hardly know the meaning of the word anymore XDA little stressed...Personal Art?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, I've been finding myself a little stressed these past few weeks...I am trying to transfer colleges, my brother moved out for college, I have so much work...everything is just so stressful.
And then I looked back on my workload for the summer and realized that I really haven't created anything for myself. Art is really what keeps me going and feeling happy...the fact that I haven't really taken any time for myself this summer was quite a bummer. I just want one piece to hang up in my room to call my own.
I'm not making this journal to whine though! Quite the opposite. I found myself sketching out a large dragon on a piece of 24inch bristol board this morning, and I knew I wanted to finish him This project could take a few days, but I am hell-bent on getting it done. It really would be nice to finish him and have something big all to myself It seems like all of the big works I create nowad

The 10 Greatest Halo Soundtracks and Their SongsI noticed something the other day about the Halo franchise. There are officially 10 soundtracks, excluding the remastered Halo: Anniversary and Halo 2 Anniversary soundtracks. Listening to all of them over the course of one day, I felt compelled to make a list, though purely opinionated, on which of these albums I felt best represented Halo, the number one spot going to the soundtrack I feel best represents Halo musically. The songs I chose to represent the soundtracks are based on replayability (MUSICAL replayablity). My choices may surprise you....The 10 Greatest Halo Soundtracks and Their Songs1 month ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Halo: Legends - Machines and Might
Starting off our list is the soundtrack for Halo: Legends, a whopper of a soundtrack in terms of remixes; most of the soundtrack consists of songs that had already made an appearance in the Halo franchise before the release of Halo: Legends, which was not a game, but a series of animated episodes explaining the story behind the Spartan program that conceived Master Chief, as well as

From Myth And Legend
“The wind within the trees was a whisper that spoke our tongue, and the stars in the sky shone on the gods of our heavens, alight and alive. What is science against alchemy, we asked them, what is coincidence against prophecy? Kings and beggars stand equal as fates unfold and worlds awake, as heroes rise and deities fall… among nymphs and mermaids, against harpies and sorceries, we must stand as one. Will you brave the lands of myth and legend with us?”

Tutorials and techniques 2It's time to refresh the tutorial journal! Added some new ones and removed those which, after some time, I found a bit misleading.Tutorials and techniques 22 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!

Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.Respect Yourself2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

How it began :)First of thank you Theta Helion for the three month. Totally unexpected and thoroughly appreciatedHow it began :)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get asked a lot how I have surrounded myself with a nice array of models. It truly is very hard to do in the beginning. Sites like model mayhem are good but can be mind numbing. So how did it all happen?
As a young man, I fell in love with hooters wings. Everywhere I travelled, I made it a point to check out the "local" hooters. Now this was in my late teens, early twenties. Fast forward to two years ago. I had started doing the model mayhem thing and there I found a few women and it was cool but hard at the same time. I had just started shooting and had zero port. Luckily though there are a lot of women who want to be models and if your not a total freak and weird you can shoot them. Still wasn't satisfied.
So I went up to the local hooters and it hit me. Tons of women, most gorgeous, build a good rep and bam it might work haha. So Abe and I talked one into coming into the studio

Letter From My Art TeacherThis is amazing! Going through my bank statements I found a folder of items my parents kept throughout my years of school. In it I found an appreciation letter my High School art teacher made for my parents. Check it out below... Oh and my real name is Christopher.Letter From My Art Teacher3 years ago in Personal More Like This
To whom it may concern:
I have Known Christopher for the past 4 years. I have found him to be thoughtful and thorough. This is evident in all written work as well as the projects he did for class. More than once he came into the art room to get help on proportion or values (shading) during lunch break or before school. He seems very eager to learn.
Christopher has a natural curiosity and always wants to improve. He took art classes more than once. I remember how surprised he was the first time I asked if I could put one of his drawings in an art show. After class he asked, "is it really good enough to be in an ar

What do you think your favorite city will look like in one hundred years?
Architect Rem Koolhaas has completed a “vertical city” complex in Rotterdam, bringing a new style of multi–purpose skyscrapers to the city skyline. Bennett Stein wrote about the new buildings for KCRW’s Design & Architecture blog, calling the creator “the Godzilla of architecture.”
Here’s an excerpt from Stein’s essay:

I felt like a weight has been lifted of my shoulders. Like sorta an art blocky one? I feel like I can draw what I want now.
Before I sorta felt very frustrated. I would do a sketch but once I coloured it it would be not goo enough. Just alot of artistic frustration?
But then again I have to become an adult and pick up some responsibility and such, which is a bit daunting. But I hope I can rest during this holiday period and be ready for next year.
I really hope to draw more and post more art that I am satisfied with, especially art that I am giving to my lovely friends, who stick by me. Even through my frustrations, slowness, procrastination and perfectionism. ; w ;
