I dont believe in mentors, not all mentors are qualified to teach, they can misguide you sometimes. If you have a mentor it can turn you into his clone, i had seen tons of great artists that their technique wasnt good but they were more unique and after having mentor, their style lose uniqueness. Because be honest, we copy what we like, and usually we ask for mentors of people that style will enjoy the most.
For example you go and learn to play guitar with Slash, you will master the guitar at rock, but you if you wanna learn country, Slash wont teach you that, your hands will have the skills but you will have to start country from zero, and country its your style.
Sooner or later the technique of the mentor will consume you. Because errors are the things that

Comment Counts Under Thumbs (Beta Testers Only)
We just released a new feature to Beta Testers that adds more context to the experience of viewing artwork on deviantART. You'll now find comment counts underneath the thumbnails of deviations -- they can be seen when browsing or searching art, and also display in your Message Center. We hope this feature will help bring to light the fact that there is a whole world of activity that takes place behind thumbnails. In some cases, when a thumbnail displays many comments, it can be a trigger to join the discussion. Whi

[UPDATE V. 0.1] Object-tan Contest!:iconmikeinel: has offered to draw the top 3 winner's Object-tans How awesome of him, yeah?[UPDATE V. 0.1] Object-tan Contest!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to announce an up coming contest! (I know this is out of the blue, the admins and I were contemplating it a while back but I think we're ready to take this on.)
The goal of the "object-tan" contest is to pick ANY object (Speakers, remote, printer... Lamp? ect.) and personify it, or turn it into a human(like) figure. Much like how Mike did for the Console Wars.
Now I think a big part of this contest is to go crazy, be creative and do things your own way. So there is no real restrictions. Just title the piece after the object you chose, and submit it to the folder I've set up for this contest.
August 20th (for now)
Enter as many times as you want! Make as many Object-tans as you want!

Why people think art should be cheapI mean some people even think that digital art should be cheaper than traditional, because there is no original.Why people think art should be cheap3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Its funny when people ask tons of things in a drawing, like 30 characters fighting a 12 dragons, and they think they can get it cheaper than a pencil drawing, because in the computer there must be a secret brush that makes all of this in 2 hours.
Sadly, painted style in digital takes more time than traditional. Artists says its easier, because you have more control. But sadly textures are cooler in traditional, and easier.
I remember 4 or 5 years ago when started thinking bout digital, i said damn if i learn digital, i will skip drawings and paint directly, this will make my life easier, it will take me less time to finish a product, like i can even finish 3 drawings in just a day, yeahhh i should try that.
5 years later, i was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo wroonnngggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg.
So i used to think the same about speed, but not about price.
How to install mods in SFxT, SSFIVAE and USF4All right guys,here is the tip to install the mod in SF X TEKKEN, SSFIVAE & USF4without messing with the origninal files (discovered by Robhal)How to install mods in SFxT, SSFIVAE and USF42 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. First create folder "chara" inside this folder "\Program Files\CAPCOM\Street Fighter X Tekken\patch\CMN\battle\".
2. Then create folder for respective character, eg: ASK, KEN, LIL, RYU, etc.
3. And finally just extract or copy the mod into above folder.
4. Run the game to see the result.
NOTE1: I have tested this way with mods from moedjoer (usually only 8 files), khaled, monkeygigabuster, and other. All work.
NOTE2: Because the original files are untouched, there is no need to backup them.
1. First create folder "battle\chara" inside this folder "\Program Files\CAPCOM\Super Street Fighter IV\patch\" or "Steam\SteamApps\common\Super Street Fighter IV - Arcade Edition\patch"(depend on version you use).
2. Then create folder for respective character, eg: CDY, KEN, MKT, RYU, etc (even GKX, RYX, YAN and YUN can be placed here too).

When I first sold LMS to Paramount, a lot of people asked me: "How much money did you get?" "You're probably rich now, right?"
I mean, the solid gold mansion I bought was just a little gift to myself...but...
Ever since I was little, I've known I wanted to draw. From the day my parents put a pencil in my hand, this was my future. I just knew it, I had that gut feeling. So I stuck to it, and thankfully it took me to heights I'd have never imagined possible. Now with my new book Redemption heading off to studios soon for a hopeful movie package, I can't wait to see where this new road takes me.
That said, there's something else that tops all of this.
The other night I went out to visit my girlfriend's cousin and her family. Incredibly kind people with very sweet kids. Other than the two parents, there were 3 kids, but the one who caught my interest was the eight-year old boy, Diego.

5 LevelsI've spoken as guest speaker a number of times over the years (come visit me at SCAD Atlanta in January). While I'm not the best or most patient teacher, I think my strength is my pragmatic and blunt approach to the business side of comics. In order to help the students think of a "5 YEAR PLAN" (more on that in an upcoming post), I'll often break down the different page rate levels of comic book artists as a way to help analyze the playing field of our industry. If there's a ladder to success, what's wrong with defining each rung? I imagine such a breakdown helpful for moving up in most any industry, not just comics.5 Levels3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the 5 LEVELS of comic artists as I see them--NOT based on talent but on page rates, popularity, and the prestige of the titles the artist works on. You might define them differently or have more than just 5, but I find that less-is-more when it comes to people being able to retain information.

a crack head punched me today.hello, friends. good news! a hobo punched me in the face in a mcdonalds today. i dont know why. i was ordering food and he tapped me on the shoulder. i turned around slightly excited, because i thought an old friend recognized me and wanted to say 'hello josh.' it was not an old friend at all, rather an ornery meth head that socked me square in the face, leaving me confused, disoriented, and choking on the pungent musk of whiskey. Ive never been punched in the face before. i always figured there would be more of a heated buildup. instead it was a drunk/insane surprise Hobo Pawnch. 'WHY DID YOU DO THAT' everyone shouted. his response was 'he knows,' to which i replied NO I DONT. the police were phoned and he sat and waited in a booth, until my step dad snapped a photo of him with his phone, coaxing him from his garbage water-smelling throne, and inciting a swift kick to my step dads balls. after breaking up an awkward wrestle, they got up, and he left. i then went to sit in a booth by aa crack head punched me today.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I didn't loathe at myself wishing that I could "draw feet" when working on a piece at the spot where I have to draw feet on the picture.
I didn't go to further schooling to let someone hand me a piece of paper on their own terms and timeframe telling me if I'm "capable of art" or not.
I took things into my own hands.
A couple of common phrases to make to artists who are (of the person who believes that they're) "inexplicably too good" that annoy me are:
"Ugh, I really wish I had your talent. Why are you so good!?"
"You're so lucky. I wish I could do what you do".
"I could never pull this off the way you pull it off."
Now, I understand that there are certain levels of aptitudes and paces that different people learn by, so don't get the idea of this entry wrong. But, really, let me make an illustration here:

Is Reference Bad?I feel like I've addressed this before at some point, in some other journal, but I find myself either discussing this with people a lot, or coming across people who on their work proudly claim to have "used no reference."Is Reference Bad?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The biggest problem, and misconception, regarding references is that people feel like it's cheating or that it somehow cheapens their work. While I can understand the sense of accomplishment coming from using no reference to finish a painting or drawing, people who consistently do it are only hurting themselves in the long run. So in short, no, reference isn't bad.
Artists have been using reference since the days of the old masters. They would reference life, whether it be landscapes, objects on a table, or models standing in a studio. They would even reference their own sketches or other people's work in order create convincing paintings.
For some reason, a lot of people today seem to think that in order to be a good artist, they have to be able to do things without
