Biweekly feature vol.1Hello everyone, I'm very happy to present the very first of the many
feature journal. I'll be doing this every 2 weeks so this will allow the
feature art work to get a decent amount of views.
The feature journal is where I'll be posting some art works from artist
on DA that you guys suggested that don't have many views or favorites
and that deserve more. For the feature journal I have picked suggestions
for different category to make it more diverse.
Again, thank you allfor posting suggestions in my previous journal, sadly space is limited
so I will not be able to feature all the suggestions.
For the next feature,
If you have a piece from an artist that you really like and feel like
that they need some exposure, wither its photography, Crafting,
Painting, Drawings,etc please post below. Please make sure that they are
legit (not stolen art) and has below 1,000 faves.
without any more delay Lets get started : )
Honour Amongst Thieves ... Podcast?Let it never be said that Sak doesn't deliver!Honour Amongst Thieves ... Podcast?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last Sunday I had a Skype meeting with Brendan Julian and Richard Johnston - the voices of Louis and James respectively from my upcoming animation - to discuss the finer points of Honour Amongst Thieves. As promised, I managed to record it and so without further ado, I present to you:

I was delighted to see the two of them got along so well, because their character interaction promises to be great this way. Unfortunately, Santiago's VA was unable to make it due to timezones, but perhaps sometime in future we'll be able to repeat this again plus one Spaniard!

My thoughts...Firstly, as always I'd like to express my honest gratitude for all the comments I've received and as well, very important to know for me were about school/courses informations. I don't care if you read this or not but- thank you very much!My thoughts...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to state how community flow is really important for me. No, not only for me but to many people. Just many people aren't aware of this.
I think the interactions between the artist and watchers - and whole community relationships thing - is one of the most vital parts that our creations exist. Writers have fans, travelers, artists, illustrators, companies, fashion bloggers etc. and so on. You may call it as a "fanbase", thus I prefer to not call because "fans" and "fanbase" has a lot of negative stereotypes and image about blindly screaming "minors". I'd prefer to name differently, because I do not view them as minors. Absolutely. I view them as an every worthy human on equal worth as the creator and that's a fact. They are just guests to
My RoadThis journal will contain some great photographs of a winter paradise.My Road3 years ago in Personal More Like This
On December, a friend of mine, musher known as a legend, the great mentor to me has passed away, I traveled up to the mountains and went on mushing alone (skijoring: cross-country skiing + sled dog, it looks like that: http://i.pinger.pl/pgr221/0fa2234e000267884b460f96/justyna_kowalczyk_10.jpg but with a dog pulling you) with my leader Arnaq. Instead spending Christmas at cozy places, I've been very hardly training cross-country skiing (skate style) alone and with my dog as well. On that month I've been doing negatively physically as well mentally, especially that feeling of emptiness after losing someone where you will never see this person again- sport was absolutely to best thing to help myself to overthink many things and make me to stand on feet properly.
But other than sport by itself I did but that trip was kind of my personal memorial for that musher who passed away. In his name I went on mushing. For
Shattered GlassI've planned to submit my newest work as soon I've arrived on my destination, but now I don't know what to think or feel at the moment…Shattered Glass3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was on the train on my way to faraway mountains.
My phone was ringing.
An unexpected call.
All what I remember after picking up is hearing these words: "he passed away".
When you hear that someone close/important to you/you know/ect,, the time feels like has stopped. It becomes a feeling of eternity. That feeling is also similar to the feeling of love but it's on opposite side of mirror.
Someone very important for me has left our world today at the morning.
That feeling…. when you get a call that someone close to you got very ill or had car crash or was busted, you usually feel sad, so worried and have feeling of hope. Or you feel anger. That kind of anger like you want to blame society. Then you ask a lot of questions if everything will be alright with her or him. You feel many emotions from sadness, feeling sorry, being worried and anger. And so on
Tomorrow, is the first blank page.......of a 365 page book. Write a good one.Tomorrow, is the first blank page....3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every year is like a chapter of our lives.
The object of a new year is not a celebration of a new year, nor having a new number displaying in our callendar but it is where we should have a new soul.
To sit down and think over how to improve up our lives.
Also is not a day to cry out loudly how our past year was unsuccessful and impatiently wait when it will be over, start a new, but to learn who we are and how we can move forward.
I'm not here to wish a good New Year Eve since it's not the only day which will decide how our new year will be like… however what I truly wish you guys lots of joy for every day for this year, as well for next year- regardless what is the day or what's happening. Every day is a miracle and a proof of our existence.
Smile to yourself while looking at your image reflected by mirror and don't be shy to say "I love you" to yourself. And lots of love to all livings forms, animals and nature and less interest to mater

(For full emotional effect, initiate motivational soundtrack in a separate window here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLXQltR7vUQ )
I've noticed lately that I have a terrible habit.
I glance at paintings.
That's right, I merely glimpse at them. Sometimes I only take a short, shameful peek. My mouse click barely skips a beat as I hastily browse from one image to the next.
Granted, there's a lot of art to be seen, and quite frankly, most of it is probably not worth the value of time. That is as it should be. We can't expect to create great work until we've flooded the world with loads of mediocrity.
It takes an awful lot of tumbling to smooth a stone.
Yet, even the images that I feel are of exceptional quality, I may give them no more than a few seconds worth of my attention. 5-10 is probably my average. 15 seconds is really pushing it. If a work is truly inspirational, I may download it to my computer, so that I can continuously re-glance at it for seconds at a
my current comic workmy current comic work5 months ago in Personal More Like This
okay so i keep getting questions on my current stuff , how and where to get them, so if you are one of the people who asked, this is my answer
my comicwokrk currently consists of 3 basic branches of work
writing and art done by me
art done by me
and covers done by me
before we get to the books themselves i would like to offer bit of an insight for anyone interested in getting their own stuff out there.
i am not covering crowdfunding as i personally stay clear of it.
this is a bunch of experiences i had, and since i got through this and am now doing fine, i thought some might find them useful
now, as i work predominantly for independent companies, my work can be a bit hard to get.
reason for this is a simple one. comic book stores buy their supplies from diamond. the main distributor.
they buy stuff they know will sell. comics aren't a huge profit business so they have to choose the winners on their own.

To find out more about this educational series, check out the Artists Toolbox Schedule over at projecteducate.
The hardest part of any craft is getting the right tools. You've gotta learn the language of the trade, and that means getting yourself familiar with what's needed where. Culinary arts in particular can be so overwhelming. Most sugar craft books will tell you you need a long list of expensive equipment they'll use to make one type of adornment never to be used again. This can suck a lot of beginners in to spending a fortune on equipment that's not essential. And cake decorating equipment is exorbitantly expensive. I can go buy some lustre dust and a couple of cutters required for one type of flower and kiss $100 goodbye, so knowing when to spend and when not to spend can save you a lot of pain.

Writing, Reading, Blogging... 6 months in.This is going to be a bit of a departure from my normal journals. I'm one of those people that tends to pop up now and then in between projects and "update" everyone on how I am and what I'm doing... once in awhile I'll even post an art feature... but I don't do a lot of "articles". Today, at least for an hour, that's going to change. Why? Because after spending the last 6 months of my life blogging and immersing myself in the writer community, I feel I've learned a few things that deserve to be shared here on DeviantART, where the writing community tends to feel like a string of small, secluded islands.Writing, Reading, Blogging... 6 months in.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don't get me wrong, DeviantART is GREAT for artists as far as community goes. There's an amazing amount of people here who do their best to help out their fellow artists and support the new ones. Unfortunately, the writing community here is a lot smaller, and a lot more... closed off. Most serious writers who post their work to DeviantART are met with a chirping cricket. People may rea

Concerning Latest Update + Tribute Videos!Okay a few things I need to say because I feel like repeating this in the comments is doing nothingConcerning Latest Update + Tribute Videos!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
IT'S OKAY TO BE SAD OVER A CHARACTER DEATH. BUT KEEP IN MIND THAT THE REASON SOMEONE DIES IN MY COMIC IS BECAUSE THEY HAD FAINTED INGAME. BY THE RULES OF NUZLOCKE, FAINT EQUALS DEATH.
Seriously, I even posted my godamn battle notes in the video for comparision. It was not me purposely trying to kill off a character out of drama. It did happen and I am drawing a COMIC BASED OFF OF MY OWN GAMEPLAY. The reason it looks that way is because I was able to build his character up for over a year so you guys get attached to my characters. I wanted you guys to like them or at least know about them before some of them got killed ingame.
FYI, MORE DEATHS ARE COMING IN THIS COMIC. I cannot assure whether this will be right away or later, but KNOW of it. It's a godamn nuzlocke. As I said before, it is okay if you were legitimately sad about this. I'm sorry it had to go that way bu
