Cool Mixer Brush Technique in PSI learned a cool technique for the mixer brush from Mathias Verhasselt, a senior cinematic artist at Blizzard. It's great for adding detail really quickly, or speeding up your workflow with certain tasks, so I made this video to show you some ways you might be able to use it.

Comics and Donut MakingI liken the comic book making business to the life of a donut.Comics and Donut Making2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Allow me to explain.
Unless you're a baker, I doubt you're going to make a good donut your first time out. I mean it sounds simple enough. A donut. But it's not. When was the last time your mother made you a donut? "I know, I'll bake some donuts and bring them to the party...!" Not a lot of people can make donuts, or good ones at least. So I assume it takes some practice. Some care. Just like making a decent comic book.
So you practice and train yourself and you get to a point in your donut making expertise that you decide to make one for public consumption. You gather the ingredients. You prep your kitchen. You set the oven temperature. You get your donut ducks in order. Once it's all nice and heated you want people to enjoy it -so you proudly display that tasty tire on a pretty shelf. Probably next to a bunch of other carefully crafted donuts. Finally someone buys that little fella and chews it up. Maybe they were just hu

5 Ways to Create Opportunities with Bobby Chiu5 Ways to Create Opportunities with Bobby Chiu5 Ways to Create Opportunities with Bobby Chiu6 months ago in Personal More Like This
by Bobby Chiu & Flynn Ringrose
1 - "No" really means "Not right now."
One of the most important things I’ve learned about opportunities is that the people that receive the most, and I’m counted in this, are the people that don't take no as final. We’re okay with getting a harsh no, or a few of them. When rejection happens, learn to put a smile on your face, go back, reassess, and come back with a new approach or completely new portfolio. If you know in your heart that you are willing to take ten harsh rejections without giving up, then most likely you won't have to.
2 - Don’t sit waiting for your ship to come in.
One thing I see all the time that I think is unfortunate is that many artists wait and wait for the perfect job. Here’s my advice for that, just go and do it! Just go pretend. One of the things that helped me starting out before we did Alice in Wonderland, was pretending that

Art and value of timeDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and value of time1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Our lives go by so fast and the time for what we really want to do is limited. So, how to wisely value our time, how to make the best of every single day and keep on creating?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
Sort what are the most important things you need to do as soon as possible and start with that. Make a list with what needs to be done and sort them by how necessary it is to do them, how much time it will aproximately take and how the result could impact your life. We have to make constant sacrifices in order to achieve our goals - instead of watching that useless youtube video, instead of checking e-mail and social media sites all the time, instead of whining that there is no time, but actually using what we have - everyone of us have 24h in a day, the difference between

How to become a better artist?
First consider this: no one is gonna help you but you. What it means - don't expect someone will guide you or help you to become a better artist. Doesn't matter if you go to an art school or taking classes. The school may help you by whipping your ass and beat some discipline into your lazy self but it won't help you in the long run... think of it as a springboard or rocket booster. It helps you to get off of the ground but then you have to fly it all by yourself.
Remember, you are the key. Not me, not your pals, not those long dead masters... no one will take you up to the top. We may help you by showing you the path but you have to walk it all by yourself. Oh and there's no elevators whatsoever. Make sure you've a tight rope and good ice-pick.
The important thing is: know what you want. Why do you want to get better? Why

Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de
