Well what the heck, looks like I haven't poked my nose into this place for over a year. Maybe I should slowly get into the habit of uploading stuff here again, huh? A ton has happened since I last logged in, which is probably why DA kinda fell off my radar for a while. Basically this went down in my life since last year:
-I managed to graduate from university with a bachelor's degree in graphic design, hooray!
-Finished "A Redtail's Dream" (that comic I've previously been posting here). That's 556 pages of comic, made in about 2 years!
-Moved away from home and to Sweden pretty much right after graduating. So I'm living on my own and being an "adult" for the first time ever.
-Since people wanted a book version of "A Redtail's Dream" I ran a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo last autumn to p

My brother is in a deep coma...This is my first journal and I'm speechless. My brother :iconRazielMB: is in a deep coma since Friday. He underwent his third bone marrow transplant to fight leukemia suffering since he was a child of 7 years old and everything has gone very wrong... high fever, deep coma and worst... rejection. Doctors are subjecting my brother many intravenous treatments to combat this rejection and I do not stop praying for God to grant me the miracle of seeing my brother a little better.My brother is in a deep coma...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I want to report that my brother is slowly ascending his coma (Yesterday, TCE3. Now, TCE6) but neither my family nor I want to rejoice yet because yesterday was the same and then he fell. My brother is so frail and weak that these steps, small steps, require great effo

Creatives are NOT prostitutes...I feel I need to chime in with my feelings on the big debate going on about weather-or-not creatives should make major revisions to story elements according to fan/consumer backlash.Creatives are NOT prostitutes...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I REALLY NEED TO SAY THIS.. The public, and consumers need to STOP treating creatives like they're some kind of PROSTITUTE! We are not here to fulfill your needs for a couple of bucks, like some back alley hooker. Input from fans is perfectly fine. But collectively demanding changes from creatives because you don't like a particular element, is stepping WAY over a line. I honestly can't think of anything more disrespectful, and insulting than for a "fan" to tell their favorite creative that he/she is doing it wrong, and that they can do it better as a collective.
I'm only going to point out a couple of things... George R.R. Martin got massive backlash from his fans for certain story elements in his Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire) book series. Did he make major revisions to subsequent books? No. On h

Chrisravensar Artist InterviewWe recently conducted an interview with the amazing talented Artist Chrisravensar. The profile is at http://chrisravensar.deviantart.com/Chrisravensar Artist Interview2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here is the interview below - thanks to the Artist for the time in conducting and answering questions for our members.
What inspired me to take up art.
I couldn't say I can not remember a time when I wasn't drawing. As a child my sisters wanted Barbies I wanted art supplies. So I suppose I was born an artist. What kept me drawing were my interests. I drew what I loved horses and animals. And whatever had my interest at the time Swords and Fantasy Artherian legend. I have always drawn what I wanted.
What materials do you use and recommend
I am a pencil artist and draw on paper. I have done ink work and will be doing more of that soon. I also use coloured pencil and chalk pencil. What I recommend is difficult to say. Paper I buy by feel. I don't really care about a brand or manufacturer. I want acid free and something that feels right, I

The Millennium Puzzle - Friend or Enemy?The horrible, haunting thoughts keep coming to me as I sit alone in my soul room. My aibou is in control of the body, but I don't want to take control. I need this time alone to think about what I recently found out about. As far as I know, the only ones who know how I feel are my aibou, Marik, Ishizu, and that Thief King, Akefia...The Millennium Puzzle - Friend or Enemy?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It happened so many years ago, but I wish I could remember it. Ninety-nine human souls, including men, women, and children from a village called Kul Elna were cruelly killed in a bloody massacre during a spell. This ritual used the dead human bodies to form the seven Millennium items, including my own Puzzle. *shudders at the thought*
And Akefia was the only survivor who witnessed it all, so he's traumatized and furious about it. He saw the scars, the blood, the pain...and all the deaths with his own eyes. That's why he wants revenge .
Ishizu's words reverberate inside my mind

Thanks to Cakecrumbs for interviewing with us at GoldMedalArt.
Artist Interview from Cakecrumbs:
You make amazing cakes and food. How did you learn to make these type of decorations?
I'm completely self-taught so everything I've learned has been a product of trial and error. When I want to learn a new technique I start by looking up as much info as I can find online. Sometimes I try to follow tutorials but I find I'm really at following instructions, so I tend to take the bits and pieces of information I like and work out a method that works for me.
What got you into making these types of cakes/food?
Lots of things contributed, but overall I suppose I just really

I'm running to the hospital and up the stairs to where Marik's room is, just hardly beating the clock to be right on time for visiting hours. I don't know why Marik is here, just the severity of his condition: it's critical, so, whatever reason he's here must be really bad.
I've reached the top of the steps, going to his room, and then, Akefia is here.
I would expect him to be here, since he and Marik are pretty close, and to be honest, I'm actually glad he's here. Maybe I can get some information on what happened to Marik from him. Any information I get right now can help me better understand Marik's c

ATB - An alternative to watermarks: MetadataWe have all seen watermarks on images, here on dA and around the internet. And even though they have become a necessary step in the aid of preventing art theft/misuse of art, they are not always ideal. It's really hard to signature or watermark an icon that is 50x50 pixels and still show it off, for example. And even in larger pieces of art, sometimes they just look ugly or, like the watermark option offered by dA, take up too much of the image.ATB - An alternative to watermarks: Metadata2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Types of Artist blues, what helped, what didn'tThere are several artist blues I know of, since I have experienced practically all of them during the past few months since 2011. I will write about how I got them, how I overcome them. What helped, what didn't.Types of Artist blues, what helped, what didn't2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of these blues are professional freelance blues, happens to those who are making their own series/productions and when there's money and risk involved.
Some of these blues are shared by all artists.
Before the production even starts, the fear of it failing caused me to think about failing instead of success. It makes me hesitate about actually working on the project before I even produce anything.
What helped- Refocus on what I am making the project for, what's the true message I try to convey with the project, make that shine, and try to choose a cheap launch platform that makes it cost-effective.
What didn't help- trying to level up on art skill. It helped with my overall art as work for hire, it didn't help with

The concept of "original characters" may be a bit foreign to writers, as when you create a piece of literature, in most cases, everyone in the story is an original character. However, with advent of role-playing (in its many various forms), non-writers and writers alike found themselves created characters to use in games and otherwise. Sometimes the characters represent themselves, other times not. The main thing that remains the same is that they are loved and cherished by their creator. And who doesn't love showing off their creations. A while ago, I ran a poll asking my watchers and visitors to share some o
