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

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

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 Art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And now for some beautiful under-appreciated art that I've come across in the last few weeks!
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:

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.

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
Wanna kill yourself?Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this. You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time. A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up." Your dad runs to your room.

I am a bit disappointed with how this contest turned out. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE the pictures that I did get, though! But as I was deleting people from the list..I counted almost 15 and the 10 who told me in notes. So that's 25 people who didn't take part due to being busy (OMG..I am so sorry.. ;n; ) or just didn't feel like it. I was hoping since it involved your own OCs it would give more incentive, but I guess I was wrong. This was also judging whether or not I should host any upcoming contests.

Drawing lessonsAnytime someone asks me for resources and lessons on drawing well I always tell them to learn the fundamentals and draw from real life. Few people take me at my word and go looking for that.Drawing lessons3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well Dan Norton, :icondingo107: , the guy who brought us the new Thundercats gave us DA users an AWESOME chance to look at how the fundamentals work using DA's Muro App (which I gotta say is brilliant).
So take a look at this and you'll get a great jumping off point on how to draw well and draw properly.
Staying MotivatedWhen people hear that I'm a freelancer, they usually say one of two things.Staying Motivated4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1- That's AWESOME. You get to work whenever you want.
2- That must be HORRIBLE keeping yourself motivated.
I never really had a problem with the motivation part until recently, until last week it clicked with me why, and how I had been self-medicating up to that point. So with that in mind, I'm gonna share some ways I find useful of staying focused.
This is a great way to cut through the crap and distractions and get LOTS done. Essentially, you set a timer and

I generally plug in and work for about 45 mins to an hour before my brain demands distraction, or longer if there's actual problem solving going on. The pomodorro cycl
