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 20131 year 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.

I have NOTHING but good things to say about the folks I’ve had the pleasure of talking to, hanging out with and calling my friends in the My Little Pony fan community. When it comes down to it, everyone is here because of one reason- they like the tiny horse cartoon. Bottom line. I’ve never run into a single instance of the legion creepy, pervy, fedora-wearing, neckbeard misogynist bullies that are claimed to populate every pony-friendly website and convention.
Quite the contrary, I’ve had a wonderful time every step of the way and I appreciate EVERYONE I’ve joined along the ride- bronies and nor/mlp/eople, artists and musicians , VAs and staff, men, women, kids a

Revelation of Godzilla's foe, is revealed the more 'Like's in facebook. Spread the word. this is going to be awesome!!!
What Godzilla: Heritage is:
From an initial idea formed in late 2009, Godzilla: Heritage's concept has drawn the interest of several talented artists and actors - non-fan and fan alike and is now entering pre-production status. The film seeks to return the Godzilla mythology to its darker roots and ground the character and some of its memorable kaiju in an altered continuity that explores a world where they have been a staple of everyday life for almost 60 years. The project will utilize traditional suitmation and miniatures as well as more contemporary effects. The film is a non-profit project . "Godzilla" and all related charac

Waaaaaaay better than whatever the hell that white costume was all about.
"NO ONE WILL NOTICE ME! NOR SHAL THEY EVER GUESS MY SECRET IDENTITY!!!!"
Also I love how the artist notes specify that it’s a badass leather jacket and NOT a tight spandex spray on with boob socks.
The only thing I find rather weird is that it looks like Babs Gordon has aged backwards. She looks way younger now. Like she’s back to being nineteen again.
Bottom Line and Final Thoughts: LOVE the costume! Cute, practical, and sexy! Let’s just hope the writers do a good job with the characters and story.
Sick of the BitchingThis is an angry post. Because shit just got real.Sick of the Bitching1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am getting very tired of the constant whining and crying by bronies when they don't get their way. Fans in general can never be 100% pleased, I know I play the Sims, but screeching like babies about alicorn Twilight (I have heard way too much bawwing over such a simple thing that most of us saw coming from episode 1), or the realization that Derpy is not coming back, or Hasbro CADing fighting is magic. Hasbro lets us bronies get away with a LOT of stuff, and we take it for granted, then when they think we go too far, or decide to evolve the show in a different way, bronies actually make DEATH THREATS to the writers?! And harass Lauren Faust? And embarrass us to the point where you don't even want to associate with the culture anymore? I can't honestly see why they would make a petition to use copyrighted characters without permission. Think logically.
I do love this show, even though todays episode was pretty so-so, and it's my favor

A lot of you may have heard the recent news about the fan game, "Fighting is Magic", If not, here's pretty much all you need to know to be caught up on what's going on with that game.
Many people have become upset within the short amount of time since the release of this statement, and with good reason too. I'm not going to get into a discussion of who's right and who's wrong, or what the law says, or how copyright works or any of that. All I want to do is point out that according to the announcement, it seems as if the development team behind Fighting is Magic, Mane6, is attempting to hold discussions with Hasbro about continuing development.
With that in mind, now is not the time for negativity and hatred towards Hasbro for their actions. Instead, now's the time to offer our support and encouragement to Mane6. They could easily say "so m

Some advice on doing commissions, professional, commercial and contracted art.
Make sure you are paid what it's worth to you.
Do a test run on a portion of what is being asked of you before you say yes or no. Time yourself. Multiply that by the volume of work you have to do, so you know about how long it will take.
Once you've done that, multiply that time by the required minimum wage in your state/country. If you are being offered less than that, then you should inform the client. If the pay is not raised? Run. Head for the hills. This is a contractor that doesn't give a shit about you and is willing to sacrifice you, your time, and your dignity to get what they want.
If you are okay working for this rate, let them know that a pay rate less

Season 8 finale discussion (!!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!!)Hello people of SPNO!Season 8 finale discussion (!!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!!)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I feel the urge to discuss the season 8 finale of Supernatural.. So let's share impressions.
HERE COME THE SPOILERS, I'VE WARNED YOU
OMG how awesome was that final episode????? I mean, burning angels falling from the sky? I was totally stunned watching this. I find all the angel dramatic stuff so thrilling, how about you guys? ^^ This episode was a total highlight. I think what makes a series really really good is a dynamic character development. And this episode was a single fucking character development explosion.
First I was shocked seeing Sam so broken when he's about to finally cure Crowley. Okay, Sam has been feeling bad since the very beginning of the trials, but seeing him so broken and just an inch away from death was so breathtaking and shocking.
Then Crowley. Oh my god, I've always loved Crowley as a character. Mark Sheppard is so so so incredibly talented (he played also a very interesting character
Dark ShadowsAn enjoyable enough flick that was actually free of quite a few of the usual Burton hallmarks (not a black and white stripe in sight!), but it felt more of a tribute than it should have to the long forgotten series on which it was based.Dark Shadows2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are a few real "What the?" moments near the end which are no doubt nods to the source material, of which Burton and Depp are huge fans, but which are completely lost on the rest of us.
(Was lycanthropy mentioned earlier in the film? If it was; I missed it! - That's no spoiler BTW. It has NO relevance to the rest of the film which is what makes its inclusion so baffling.)
It's also the first film in which Eva Green actually looks like the bombshell everyone's been claiming her to be since Casino Royale.

JOURNEY, Best game i had ever playedThis got to be the most amazing game i had ever played in my entire life. Been a gamer for almost 30 years, played all type of games, including hentai games, hhahahahha. But i was not satisfied at 100%, i mean final fantasy 7, zelda, shadow of the colosus, call of duty, pacman. All games were amazing, especially Shadow of the Colossus that almost gave me a 95% satisfaction.JOURNEY, Best game i had ever played2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And i asked myself, i had seen it all, i topped the gaming genre, i wont cry again for the beauty and sadness like Shadow of the Colossus anymore.
I WAS WRONG-
I bought the collectors edition, i highly recommend it.
There were times i just sight and enjoyed the view of the landscapes, hearing the wind sound, then i noticed the loneliness, and felt bad, so each time i saw a companion i was so happy to begin a journey with them. I felt sad when a monster eats my companions, you truly care about them.
At first i was like damn there is another player go away, leave me play alone, but the more you play, the more loneline

Arise, Sir BaldrickThe well known Blackadder duo, Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson (the titular Blackadder and his grotty henchman, Baldrick) have made the honours list.Arise, Sir Baldrick1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Robinson is to be Knighted in recognition of his public and political service, and Atkinson is being granted a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) for his charity work.
A surprise, given that they're most well known for starring in a show that often mocked the monarchy. Though honours are recommended by her ministers, the Queen still approves them. Mind you, that she became a Bond girl during the 2012 Olympics does rather put to bed the question of her having a sense of humour.

What program do you use?

What kind of tablet do you use?

Where did you learn to draw?
I was using cheat codes from the very start - both my parents are artists + my mum was organizing weekend drawing courses in our very house. You can pretty much say I spent my whole childhood in an art school.
When I was in high school I was attending course preparing for exams into the faculty of architecture. This is the course: www.labirynt.pl
During the first and second year at the university we had some drawing/painting/sculpting lessons but they kinda sucked. Besides they were worth only 1/10th of the ECTS points you could get from pretty much any other subject so nobody gave a shit.
Will you make any tutorials?
Probably not. I don't feel competent enough.

I generally don't use a contract if the art I'm going to do is not for commercial purposes or the cost is under $100. What is art for commercial purposes? If the commissioner or client is going to use this image for monetary gain or advertising, that makes it commercial. I know the actual laws on the subject are more complicated, but that's a quick rule of thumb I use. Be wary of a client who doesn't want your signature on it. Even if they say they're not using it for commercial purposes, the unwillingness to let you sign your work may be an indication that they're not being entirely honest. A contract may be useful in this instance just in case.
It's not rude to ask for a contract. You are protecting yourself *and* your client. Any client with an interest in being fair will not object. You're not being pretentious. You may feel awkward asking for one at first, but it d
