We're sponsoring Artists' Alley 2012!
We're headed to Comic-Con International:
San Diego to sponsor Artists' Alley!
We Love Artists' Alley
We're back at Comic-Con!
Last year, our sponsorship of Artists' Alley was a huge success. We were able to provide a more comfortable environment for the artists, display their art on huge screens over the Alley, and let people attending the convention draw with deviantART muro on fantastic digital screens. We plan to do this and more in 2012 as we take on the great pleasure of sponsoring Artists' Alley at San Diego Comic-C
Tutorial Tuesday: NatureNature.... oh boy nature. How the hell do we draw nature? It's just so complex and so random. Its impossible to draw something that's so random, right? You just draw it randomly and hope for the best.... Tutorial over.Tutorial Tuesday: Nature3 years ago in Personal More Like This
.... Just kidding! Thats not how we roll here. Believe it or not things in nature are not random, they are very ordered, patterned, and deliberate. Nature is not perfect, but it tries to be and we can use that to our advantage when drawing.
Before we start, it's vital that you spend some time looking at whatever natural thing you want to draw. Everything has its on unique traits. Proportions, patterns, size, these are all things that vary, and depending on the variation will make the difference between a house cat and leopard. And an oak tree from a birch tree. This tutorial is going to focus on helping you identify the patterns that occur in nature.
Lets start with a tree:

Cosplay SaleHi friends,Cosplay Sale2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've just too much stuff lying around, so I thought about selling again a few things I probably won't wear anymore.
If you're interested in any of them, feel free to send me a note!
SHIPPING: The shipping costs depend on where you live. They'll always be added to the cosplay's price, but of course I don't know yet how much the shipping will cost in any case. I'll keep them as low for you as possible. I ship worldwide!
SIZES: All sizes are Small / GER: 34 / 36
PRICES: All prices are what I had to spend on the materials, nothing is added for the tailoring because I wore them before. In some cases it's even less than the material costs. Please respect the prices, I only used the best suitable fabrics so they're often not the cheapest ones. But if you want a cosplay really badly but you can only pay a little less than the price, we can talk about it. I hope that's ok for you!
Terra from Kingdom Hears: Birth by Sleep
MetamorphosisMonths back, I wrote a comic about Jane Fitzpatrick's backstory (which is technically completely 'original,' as Jane and her background are totally separated from any Avatar characters or elements) which was accepted to be included in Grayhaven Comics' upcoming project, 'You Are Alone.' The project's Kickstarter was successful, and so this comic that I wrote and DoodleBuggy did a brilliant job bringing to life is supposed to be published later this year. You Are Not Alone will be: "A 200+ page anthology of hope with tales of overcoming bullying, homophobia, racism, depression and abuse." You can find more information about it here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1429812861/you-are-not-alone-1Metamorphosis2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The comic is finally done! And you can read it here:
It is a standalone piece written for elementary/high school students, but it also serves a small slice of backstory for Jane's character.
It's been a pleasure to work
Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKSSo... that last journal was a doosie wasn't it? 500+ comments and counting! Yikes. I can always count on Anita Sarkeesian to give me tons of views, lol. All joking aside, that was a very serious batch of discussions. Anytime we talk about sexism and objectification of women in gaming or geek culture, it's sure to get a lot of responses.Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly since Anita is such a hot-topic around the internet, there was more than one person who were trying to claim that there actually isn't ANY issue with the game industry involving sexism at all. To them, this whole idea that women are marginalized or objectified or treated badly both in the gaming industry and in geek culture is just false. It doesn't exist. And any attempt to explain why we need to change things is inherently flawed because there's no reason to do so.
So in the interest of trying to debunk that bullshit, I made a list of sources I accumulated around the internet to prove that this is indeed a problem. I think everyone can benefit f
Giant Mushrooms and Beautiful ArtI've been super busy the last couple of weeks, between trying to quickly edit photos, put together a couple of top secret Autumn shoots, and redecorate, I'm pretty wiped out. I kinda feel like falling asleep at work today, which isn't really the most responsible choice that I've entertained! Last weekend, I decided to finally get my butt in gear and papier mache two over-sized mushroom props that I made out of aluminum pans and cardboard oatmeal containers. Any guesses on the shoot theme?? I am not the best at crafting, but it was kind of cool to think that they'll be used in a pretty epic shoot. Now hopefully the rest falls into place! In other news, it's been raining constantly here and I'm so over it.Giant Mushrooms and Beautiful Art8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Welcome to issue #54 of my fantasy features!
These are now part of a collection in a group created specifically for this project. If you like this feature, you can find more gorgeous artwork at the group, including some never featured in these articles before.
I hope you enjoy it, and please, show the featured artists some love and recognition through pageviews, 's and 's!
This week's creature feature is: Mandrakes
Note: The legends and lore involving Mandrakes, or Mandragora, vary according to source. This feature describes the "screaming plant", as well as the scientific one, as the former is directly derived from the latter. This is really just to appreciate the artwork, not so much to educate.

No Excuses, I can't eat another bite...Can't eat another bite? CAN'T EAT ANOTHER BITE!?!?No Excuses, I can't eat another bite...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That is just preposterous and ridiculous. This is the worse excuse ever. Is it because you're full? Saving room for dessert? Do you not like the food? It doesn't matter! It's Thanksgiving! Be grateful for the food you have to eat.
Your loved ones spent a long time preparing this food! You're Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Girlfriend, boyfriend and/or friend spent a ton of time making this feast. You sit down, be thankful and enjoy it, and don't give me these lame excuses!
And even if none of these people prepared it, if you did all the work, then Sit down and enjoy your labor! You deserve it!
Seriously. Today (at least in the states) It's a day to be thankful. And I truly am. Not everyone gets to follow their dreams with the support all of you give me. And I appreciate it more than I can accurately express.

In my science class I'm partners with SATAN.
She's a new kid named Morgan, she copies me, she orders me around, she's a bitch in general.
I AM GOING TO RIP HER HEAD OFF.
I am seriously going to.
The chick even chewed me out for not knowing the correct meaning to ''fuck.''
Than she calls the entire class retarded freshman, AND SHE'S COPYING ME, A FRESHMAN.
Username complaintsThis is a bit weird, but I'm going to defend why Colette is my favorite character because of various complaints about my username.. Feel free to disagree, everyone has their own opinion.Username complaints2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of people contact me just to tell me how much they hate Colette. "She pretends to be perfect" or "She's too perfect" even "She's so typical and useless."
I'm going to try to defend myself for the typical things people message me about out of the blue, trying not to spoil the game. Colette is a girl working desperately for salvation. She is doing everything not only to save the world, but also because she has sinned. So "She pretends to be perfect," absolutely not. She's trying to make up for her past.
As for "She's too perfect," Colette is a chronic liar, a thief and a killer. Enough said, right?
"She pretends to be so perfect?" Colette forgives people for their wrong, probably because she wants to be forgiven herself. If she pretended to be perfect, she'd stick her nose in the air and refu

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”
– Guy Fawkes

Sorry for being inactive - my honor wallMy lack of motivation and some personal problems caused me to lose a lot of energy to be here.Sorry for being inactive - my honor wall1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This website is sort of like addiction to me, more or less a placebo effect , where I convince myself that people do care and that this place is good. That me coming online matters. Then the doubter starts hounding me in my mind,
I wake up with a reality "hang-over" a whispering voice saying:
"Nobody cares, except people who have ordered commissions."
Sad part of being a erotic/ecchi artist is that people want you to " Draw tits and STFU." Horrific as this may sound ,this is the truth.
I could go on about details of my current state, but that is just boring reading so let us skip that.
I am grateful for you who does actually answer, feel great about yourself.
You are by far the best people in the world. I would add more but these people impacted me so much it makes me want to come online just because of them.

I met this cool guy named Nork (I think that's what he said), who seems awesome af. He's like 21. Everybody thought I was ten, but clearly I'm not if I'm a junior in high school. This awesome guy named Chris spun in the rain with me, which he's stronger than I thought. xD I hung out with my two guy friends Josh and Dillion, and finally met this guy Blaze. xp I was told I could dance, and that I'm a lot of fun. I gave some random girls ten bucks because theirs got stolen. I'm going to try to donate money for the Ultimate Basement each month, but the bills there cost like $1,200 each month, so I don't think I'd be able to make a difference. I MIGHT preform there if somebody helps me. I met this guy named Joe, who was pretty friendly, and shocked when he found out Im not a little kid. I'm so happy now xp
But Yeah! Anybody want to try helping me get my Youtube more well known a
Devious Journal EntryI gotta admit, that I keep thinking about possibly creating a second deviantart account. Because sometimes I post stuff I feel it's not the kind of things that everyone likes, or don't want to see, or I feel a bit embarrassed to post.
