JohnSu goes to AX 2013Hey guys, sorry I took so long! This year I'm going to try something a little different and not Flash-dependent. I wasn't really sure how much I was gaining by making the pages squiggly and separated by animated transitions, so without further adieu, here's my report on this year's Anime Expo, now with alt-text! (hover mouse on image for commentary)JohnSu goes to AX 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.
Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.
MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself.
Disqordilicious.So... wow... My inbox has been exploding all week. I've been completely floored by the response to my little graphic story about Disqord.Disqordilicious.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've gotten so many wonderful, beautiful, comments! I read them all, even if I do not respond to each one. I am so moved that so many people found my little story so interesting! Really, it makes me all glowy to know that I was able to hit the artistic nail on the head. Nothing is more satisfying to an artist than knowing that their work "got to people".
Many of you understood exactly what I was aiming for, and that makes me happiest of all!
Knowing that I was able to communicate my artistic vision (with a fan comic!) feels so triumphant. As I posted each page, I would read the comments and keep them in mind when painting the next page... I would put extra effort into emphasizing certain points and ideas of mine to help better communicate them. Really, all of your comments truly helped me to hone my idea and inspire me to keep up with the work. So th

I joined Deviant Art I few years back bright eyed and hopeful. I tried to show case some talent I felt I had and over a period gained a handful of friends. Like most folks in the last several years the hard times came and with that I slowly faded away from this friendly art community. With some help from friends we reopen DreamOrchid's doors with a new website (www.dreamorchid.com), official DreamOrchid face book page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/DreamOrchid/189645937780364), and even a twitter account.

SOME NEWS AND THE GODS HELMETFirst of it all, i want to show all my gratitude to all the people who are supporting my crap and my music last day, to know some people have Mister 13 folder on their mp3 players and Iphones is so amazing to me. Holy shit thank you. After the dead of my computer i thought to start again would be so slow and painful but you can fuck with a badass. So finally i´ve a release date in October for my first offical album, some comissions running and my book will be released as soon as my lazy printer will give to me a date for to start.

Best way to learn anything...?BEING FORCED to do it.Best way to learn anything...?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was awful in anatomy some years ago. My anatomy teacher almost killed me with all the studies he forced me to do. I made like 200 sketches in two years, and now, I simply have no problem with anatomies, either poses (I gotta improve, I know, but I'm fast and I can do them with comfort).
I was awful at coloring (and still am, but not that much). Latelly, people are asking me SIMPLE COLOR commissions, everybody. And in a few months, I got way better at digital coloring. And the most important part: I'M FASTER with them. I've done another digital coloring in 3 hours %D And it doesn't look that bad!
Next time? I think I'll be opening in a next future an extra option for backgrounds. I want people to force me to do backgrounds, and I'm sure I'll be getting better at them.
Because, when I do things my own, I don't make improvements. I've been more than four years practicing digital coloring and never got anything decent. But, under the pressure of the commissioners,

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.

Every week I have to deal with some stranger I havent talked to trying to use me for all the watchers that have come to my account. Let me just make one thing straight, this is not an account to feature, help spread stuff and all that, this is my gallery. IF that makes you mad or upset then go be friggin mad and upset I dont give a flappityhockeypuck. I dont care if you think I have an ego for not wanting to feature you, and help out. Jesus grow up there are hundreds of ways to feature yourself if you got of your lazy asses.
STOP ASKING ME. Stop trying to GUILT trip me by using your sick pets or sick family memebers. Dont come to me if all you care about is views.
What pisses me of the most is that 99% of the time I get asked some kind of version of this are from people who BARELY talk to me or have never talked to me at all.
yeah this is a big pet peeve of mine, so if you do not want to
