February 15th 2013 was a milestone for my time on deviantart! Its my 10 year anniversary! Wow, that is quite something! I can't believe its been that long since I first joined the site! The years have just rolled by! There have been so many people come and go over my artist progression, people who have inspired me, people who've become long time friends, people who have since departed the site and are dearly missed, and people who could do with a slap... of LOVE!
As part of my celebration for all of my 10 years of artistic endevours, as promised I am holding a contest! Yeah, I can see my once quiet page lighting up with activity to try and c
Design me a new dog character contest ($40 prize)Hey all! I have very few characters and I'm looking for more, so I thought I would run a little contest to see if I could rustle up a few creative designs from people! I'm not looking for anything super specific but I do have a couple of general guidelines.Design me a new dog character contest ($40 prize)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Must be a new design, on original lines.
-The ref must contain a full body shot and a headshot at minimum; if design is non-symmetrical, you need to showcase both sides.
-There will be one first prize of $40.
-If I like more than one design, I may award a second and/or third prize OR I might just buy the character outright from the designer.
-Designs that don't win are fully resellable.
-I reserve the right to end this contest with no winner if I don't particularly fancy any of the designs offered.
-If you need an extension, feel free to ask; I'll most likely say yes!
-Ends on June 25th as of right now.

Canoeing the lagoons of Cerulean City, strolling through Wonderland, zipping to Jupiter’s moons and more adventures have been promised in travel posters.

EMPOWERED cosplay, now with painted-on latex!At the Toronto Comic Arts Festival last weekend, ace photographer (and karaoke-er*) Paul Hillier was kind enough to drop off some prints of a seriously badass Empowered cosplay shoot he had arranged. He took the concept of Emp cosplay to a whole 'nother level, via an exciting new frontier in costuming: painted-on latex! Not only is this arguably the ideal cosplay medium to approximate Emp's unearthly supersuit, it's definitely the best medium to depict the tearing of the suit's membrane (as seen in a photo emulating an Empowered cover, complete with logo).EMPOWERED cosplay, now with painted-on latex!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Few artists have so definitively reflected the lives of average Americans as Norman Rockwell.

Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de

10 years?!? wow!!!haha wow, i just noticed that I've officially been on deviantart for 10 years now. gotta draw something to commemorate that soon! i'm not gonna lie, it means quite a lot to me. even though i didn't know it at the time, putting my artwork online and joining art communities like deviantart has become the foundation of pretty much my entire LIFE as i know it now. i mean i started uploading my artwork to this site for fun, just to get in touch with other artists and gain some exposure, and now it is my career. i firmly believe that my fanbase here on deviantart and the things i've learned here have EVERYTHING to do with me being able to work as a freelance artist. i discovered so many inspiring and great artists through this site. the reason i chose the Utrecht School of the Arts as my college was because i followed Bakenius and loved his work; when i didn't like the school i was attending at the time, i contacted him through deviantart notes and he advised me to check out his school10 years?!? wow!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I recently discovered something very interesting. As I didn't know this, I thought some of you might also not know this, thus it could be helpful (even life changing) to share this info.
Did you know that the key to selling your book successfully, you need to start with the marketing process of your book months in advance. The ideal is to start with this before even start writing the book, but it will still be effective if you start a few months before your manuscript is done. You need to have a battle plan about how you're going to sell your book, before you are finished writing it. Here's a few articles on this marketing strategy that might help you make the difference between selling a thousand books and zero.

Cuando al fin nos animamos a volver, las cosas se pusieron feas. Ese tiempo sin entrenar jugó una muy mala pasada. Estamos un tanto oxidados, o lo que vivimos nos cambió un poco la forma de expresarnos. La experiencia, lo que vivimos, siempre nos va a cambiar un poco, vamos a madurar (En teoría) – Eso es genial! Piensen en que somos como una especie de Kenshin, un talento oculto durante años al que no se le apagó el fuego, y cuyas motivaciones cambiaron. Lo importante es que el fuego sigue. Eso es lo que nos hace artistas! Lo que tenemos que hacer ahora, es hacerlo crecer simplemente produciendo, y dejar que eso que nos hizo cambiar en la obra.

Mampu membuat karya yg baik & mampu menjualnya adlh salah satu ciri VALUABLE ARTIST
Agar mampu jualan kita sbg seorang artist harus paham beberapa hal ini : 1. Bisa dipercaya
Bisa dipercaya berarti harus punya profil & portofolio yg jelas
Profil yg jelas berarti, kita sebagai artist harus nunjukin kl kita serius & tidak main2

It's funny, I had thought a few months ago of doing this very thing, but who am I? I'm nobody. This guy is a professor of law at Harvard. My plea would have branded me as a crackpot and dismissed, or worse, ruined any credibility I may have had for future ventures.
For those of you who may not be aware, or who don't live in America, we are sinking. Fast. I have been personally privy to how bad things have gotten, and we are still barely scraping a living out of the military's begrudging obligations to my husband, for whom he saw and did horrible things. His only reward was to have his mind and body ruined, and in order to get any sort of help, we are required to navigate the endlessly looping systems
