Contest(NEW PRIZES,AGAIN, even more!)EDITContest(NEW PRIZES,AGAIN, even more!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
see below for details
So I'm going to be holding a sort of mini-contest
in that the prizes aren't really that great and you don't have to put a lot of effort into your entries
also the deadline wont be very long
So the aim of the contest is to draw character/s from a fairytale but with a foreign twist, eg; Indian Rapunzel (with sari's and whatnot, like this one http://lamamama.deviantart.com/art/Tangled-in-India-284601830)
You can Include just the protagonist, or you can also throw in the prince/princess or villian( be creative)
also, a short summary in the artist comment about the fairytale you have chosen, and changed, would be great
you can also set it in modern day and/or switch the genders of some of the characters
Also! You may do as many entries as you like
Also, you have to choose one of the following fairytales(suggestions are welcome if you want to do a different one)
First in best dressed, i want everyone doing a different fairytale

... I propose you a project. Lemme explain
So, this was, at first, something I was going to do by myself. By the end of 2012, I looked at my art and wondered if I was actually improving. I had the sensation that, indeed, I had gotten a bit better... but just a bit. I had neglected real practice, real hard work, never getting out of my comfort area. And that is not good. Ever since I left Comic School and I got into University I have focused on some other things, and I have forgotten about drawing as a living... and it makes me really sad, because I must confess that nothing would make me happier than drawing as a profession, or even better, animatio

An Aereoscopic Adventure!An Aereoscopic Adventure!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.

F.A.Q.Have you studied art anywhere?F.A.Q.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
No, I am a self-taught artist and I haven't studied anywhere.
For how long have you been drawing?
In 2007 i started being interested in CorelDraw but i used it only for a year. Then in March 2009 i started drawing traditional portraits. In May 2009 i bought my first tablet and since then i draw digitally.
How do you draw?
I draw everything digitally almost never traditionally. Digital sketch - digital lines - digital coloring.
What software do you use?
I draw in PaintTool SAI and then edit my work in Photoshop CS5.
What tablet do you use?
I use Wacom Intuos4 small.
Can you make a tutorial on *something* ?

Walt Disney, John Pomeroy, and meWhat do all three of us have in common? Animation, of course. But as far as this posting goes, there are two seperate bits of info I'm giving you:Walt Disney, John Pomeroy, and me2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) I just saw this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAl9P4T12Rs&featurelayer_embedded to a much loved video of Walt Disney talking about "art style". I as a part of some Disneyland show he did for TV way back when, but it is one of THE BEST looks at the individuality of the artists at the studio back then. Its one of the few times that Disney acknowledges how many different styles reside in the animation studio and that they must all melve together to create one vision. But also contribute their "pieces of uniqueness" in the creation of the ultimate style of a film. It also includes the famous clip, "Four artists paint a tree" that is the second half of the video and plays out all that he says before. A MUST SEE FOR ANY ARTIST!
2) Just last night, I did a podcast interview with leg

So if you don't want any spoilers, don't read this, I guess. XD
Okay, but before I talk about the movie, let me say why I didn't go see it in theatres. Way back when this movie was still in early production and I heard about it, I got really excited. My friend told me that Disney was doing The Snow Queen as a movie, which, Snow Queen is a personal favorite fairy tale of mine. So, when I heard that, I got excited that Disney was going to be doing such a lovely, albeit kind of obscure story. And I was happy to see them doing something other than a princess story. Or at least, that's what I thought until more info started leaking about the movie. I steadily lost my hope for a very accurate trans

MY BROTHER HELPED SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE!So yesterday afternoon, I was chillin' at home in my pyjamas, studying for this morning's exam (yes, an exam on a Saturday freaking terrorists) when all of a sudden, I heard terrible, terrible screaming and dogs barking like mad. We have a pretty noisy neighbourhood overall, and dogs often fight while their owners yell at them, but this was different.MY BROTHER HELPED SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I went outside. I couldn't see anything, but I heard the woman's screams very clearly. My mom insisted that if we dare check it out, we'd better do it in a car so that if dogs are involved, they won't attack us. We have a single-lane driveway and my brother's car was in the back, so I had to call him. He hopped into his car with his two friends to go see what he could see. I ran ahead to check past the corner (which was stupid of me, I admit) and when I saw two women and a little girl gathered on the driveway of a house down the street, I signalled to my brother to drive there. When I confirmed the coast was clear, I ran towards
