The X-23 Tenth Anniversary Initiative.X-23 reaches her tenth anniversary this year. For every character this is a milestone, but for X-23 herself it's a biggie. With her being part of the X-Family, being named X-23, and god knows how many other X references can be screened in there, this anniversary is one that should be done large. It's her X(That's roman numeral 10) anniversary afterall.The X-23 Tenth Anniversary Initiative.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I'm calling out to all fans.
From Auguest 2nd, 2013 to October 23, 2013 an effort should be put forward to share new original works featuring her or fan pieces about her. Let's see if we the fans can unite to each provide for this window of oppurtunity so none of us are overwhelmed and all of us have much to enjoy.
August 2nd, 2003 was when she first debuted to the public through the X-Men Evolution episode.
October 23rd, or 10-23 as many write dates, is the extrapolation of her name. X-23 also means 10-23 when you break down the roman numeral X.
We also have 2013... Which is an anagram for 10-23. S

Edit: In total, there were 106 entries to the art contest! I, my partner Sinnfinity, and my sister Phix spent nearly three hours pulling up all the contest entries on our TV and discussing them.

It's 1 am now and I'm gonna go get some rest and then announce all the winners t

A Brief Discussion On Limited PaletteA Brief Discussion On Limited PaletteA Brief Discussion On Limited Palette9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
We all know that temptation when we see a pretty new colour in the art-shop, or the urge to create a mesmerizing colourful artwork while planning a painting. We then use our favourite colour(s) in full force - by means of as much as we want - and we often have more than one favourite colour....
Aftermath: A muddy or unreal canvas! Colours do not look right and did not turn out exactly as it was in our mind - not even close and harmony is far away! It turned into a visual cacophony!
What might get wrong? A lot of things! But specially all those pretty colours you put at will!
It is not bad to paint with many colours - many big artists paint with more than 70 colours on their palette. Even we do not finish a painting in less than 10 colours - right? The difference is that the famous or big artists have mastered
Design me a new Oc contest, 2000 points (open)Hi everybody! I decided to start another contest :3 but to switch it up it will be a design contest!! And because not a lot of people entered there is now three optionsDesign me a new Oc contest, 2000 points (open)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
option 1) design me a monster character. As many of you have probably noticed, I'm taking a huge interest in drawing monsters, adopting monsters, and just monsters in general. In order to fit into my story they must have a human skin tone and be humanoid to some extent, but anything else goes! You can use bases, do collabs, and submit as much as you want.
option 2) design me a pokemon trainer. I really would like a Pokemon trainer oc who has a Mudkip or Marshtomp,any variation of eevee,pachirisu, minccino or cinccino skitty ,vulpix, chikorita, tepig, glameow buneary and a poochyena or mightyena, it can be any gender or age, but so you know cute things usually are my favorite when it comes towards my pokemon ocs. Bases as always are allowed as long as you credit the person who made t

ArtistPerspective #1: Sketchbook, your best friend:iconhello1plz::iconhello2plz:ArtistPerspective #1: Sketchbook, your best friend5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hello everyone! I've had this idea for a while and finally decided to execute it. I'd like to write some short article-like journals from artist's perspective revolving around... various things! I may not be a great artist, but I've been messing around with art for a while so I am hoping that maybe some of my thoughts could be helpful or interesting to you.
I might also post those to my tumblr, for any tumblers out there!
Sketchbook, an artist's best friend.
(Here's mine! )
I bet that many of you, as artists, had some sketchbooks in your life. And if you didn't, I really recommend getting one! A sketchbook can be just about anything - a plain notepad, some sheets of paper hastily put together or simply a journal you doodle in. It doesn't have to be professional, the most important part is that it has paper yo
On Commissions and What I Require of ClientsSo some things went down a couple months back, which resulted in me getting conned out of a good hundred bucks of work. I'm not particularly angry about it, because I have known for years that my trust in strangers over the Internet would inevitably bite me in the butt. As an artist who does not require payment up front and maintains a no-questions-asked refund policy (up to sending the high resolution files), I take a huge amount of risk on myself and must trust that my work will be respected enough to be compensated accordingly. Of course, the day was coming when this strategy of taking all the risk off the client would backfire, and lo it did.On Commissions and What I Require of Clients2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It came. It went.
While I'll be opening up the gates for more coloring commissions in a few days, I figured it would be best to give a heads up to my new clients so they know how the system works, and what they'll be needing.
Dropbox/Google Drive: I do all file transfers over Dropbox or Google Drive. I will not send high resolution
Inspiration: Art websitesMany people asked me about which sites I use (or used) to learn and keep myself updated about art. So I decided to make a list with art websites that offer tutorials, advice, or other content that inspired me. Of course there are many other individual artists that inspire me greatly, but I've tried to keep this list to the ones that provide the community of advice and tutorials (otherwise I could go on forever).Inspiration: Art websites5 months ago in Art Features More Like This

Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise

My First Journal Entry! ^-^Since I recently made an account on Deviant Art, I decided to make my first journal entry (the first of many to come), this one being a quote.

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn't have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know i
