Tools of the TradeHey guys. I figured I'd go ahead and do a FAQ journal entry. Just a basic list of the tools I'm currently using for my marker work. I have a new tutorial for my markers that I'll post when I'm able to share the art I used for the progress shots. Feel free to fire away with any questions and hopefully, this can be a go to guide for basic info on my tools. I'm not going to talk about oil painting materials as I'm still figuring all that out and I doubt an answer I give today will hold up in the future.Tools of the Trade3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok Here goes...
Markers: Prismacolor Cool and French grey markers. I think "Copic" has become another word for "marker" these days, so it's assumed that I'm using Copics for all of my work, but I actually use Prismacolor for all of my figures and detail work and only use Copic markers for backgrounds. I use to use "Warm" greys but I like the sepia look of French more now. I also occasionally use Copic color markers when I'm doing a full color marker piece. Why do I like Prismacolor markers

Last and most importantly, the long-awaited Episode 09: Gemini Tournament Yang was released just one week ago!

Autumn's Six Rules to Remember in Life!Autumn LeFleur's SIX RULES TO REMEMBER IN LIFEAutumn's Six Rules to Remember in Life!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Money cannot buy happiness, but it’s more comfortable to cry in a BMW with heated seats than on a bicycle in the rain.
2. Forgive your enemy, but remember the a##hole’s name.
3. If you help someone when they’re in trouble, they will remember you when they’re in trouble again. But you also made a friend for life.
4. Many people are alive only because it’s illegal to shoot them.
5. Alcohol does not solve any problems, but then neither does milk. Wine says you are a very good dancer and Vodka says dance on the tabletops with people you don't know.
6. There are more uses for ball gags than we can all comprehend. Mother in law that won't be quiet - Ballgag. Tired of always putting your foot in your mouth....try a ballgag! Ever wanted to sound like a Muppet? Ball gag
May you carry these very important words with you everywhere.

But anyway, I wanted to let you guys know and I am still around. My drawing activity went down a bit when school started up for me but I still plan to work on my comics and such. I have also been doing a few side projects that may or may not be posted here. One of the stuff I do want to post about is Paper Shadows, an indie game for which I work as an artist. You guys should totally sign up for the demo and give the team feedback!

Cinder is coming to Doctor Who: Legacy!So it was announced today that the War Doctor's companion Cinder (from George Mann's novel "Engines of War") is being added to the Doctor Who: Legacy game, and yes- she will be in the same style as the design I cooked up a while back with George's input:Cinder is coming to Doctor Who: Legacy!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Obviously, we have to make a few alterations since the original was based on Hayley Williams (we never dreamed that this design would get fast-tracked for officialdom). But I can promise that "Cinder 2.0" will still be mostly the same and just as badass (and most importantly, still have a gun made out of dead Dalek parts). The legacy folks have been very cool to work with, and I'm hoping we'll be working together on some more stuff soon.
Also- you gotta see this wicked Cinder fan art by Paul Cooke. Beautiful stuff:

My number one question that others ask me is "What do you ink with?"
I use Kuretake brush pens. Here's a link to a sable hair brush pen that I love, it's the closest thing to a real brush I've used. It is pricey though. http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-40-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Sable-Hair-Refill/pd/3958
The less expensive version is the synthetic hair, http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-13-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Red-Body/pd/2661 this brush pen is similar to a Pentel brush pen. http://www.jetpens.com/Pentel-Pocket-Brush-Pen-for-Calligraphy/pd/1793
The cool thing about these Kuretake brush pens is the refill cartridges have nice ink in them that I use, but if you find you don't like the

There is a metal in the movie that can become and transform into anything, and they made a RAINBOW DASH OUT OF IT!!
I freaked out in the theaters when I saw it lol
no, it's not some pony lookalike bullshit, it was a legit G4 shaped Rainbow Dash and it transforms into a gun afterwaaaards!!
PLEASE if anyone else has seen the film, tell me you saw her too! XD
FYI yes I enjoyed the film, but it's nothing special from the others in the franchise. (No surprise there really)
For those of you that want to spot her, just pay attention and you'll see her easily
Yes this is journal worthy

Her porn work is also fulfilling the objective she laid out for it: help her graduate debt free.

She doesn’t advise others walk in her shoes, however.

RIP Dave Brockie of GWARDave Brockie, better known as Oderus Urungus, the lead singer of GWAR. He had passed away at age 50, Sunday March 23rd 2014. This man was one of my biggest idols. I looked up to him and everything he did. GWAR has been my favorite band for a while now. Brockie's lyrics, performance, creativity, it all amazed me. He was really one of a kind, it really hurts to see him go all of a sudden. My love for both Dave Brockie and GWAR will live on, no matter what. But the band will never be the same without Dave, it's impossible to replace someone like him. I'm curious to see how the band continues.... RIP Dave Brockie. You will be greatly missed. We love you so much. Thank you for all you've done. You were a true legend. \m/RIP Dave Brockie of GWAR2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I find myself struggling with this myself from time to time and wanted to bring comfort to anyone else who is as well.

In life we are all given backpacks to carry. You can choose what you put in your backpack. Will it be light and airy or will be it be dark and dreary? What will you carry with you? Cotton Candy or Garbage?

Jackie and Patton Oswalt backstage at The Largo
How does one go about meeting someone famous? Innocently, We had bought tickets to Patton Oswalt and Friends at The Largo in Beverly Hills. Art had gotten me some positive experiences with the band Ghost Town. But that was the Internet. What could art do for me here? So, doing what I do best, I drew a portrait with his jokes around him. What's the harm? When the piece was done, I contacted him through Facebook.
He thought it was cool! He responded promptly! I asked if he could sign it, sometime at his show on 9/13/14. It was a long shot, but the squeaky wheel gets the grease, right? And like that, he put Me and Kyle on the Backstage Guest List and to meet him before the show!

This is the first "floppy"-format issue of Empowered to be written and drawn entirely by yours truly since 2010's one-shot The Wench with a Million Sighs; thought I'd try drawing a new one myself to see how well it would sell in today's market.

Here's the issue's solicitation copy:
The laser blasts fly as costumed crime fighter Empowered battles a series of puzzlingly rage-fueled supervillains, each one armed with a bigger and more destructive "supergun" than the last. Ah, but might our long-suffering heroine's own buried resentments and repressed bitterness prove to be her deadliest foes? (SPOILER: Yes, pretty much.)
