WISDOM NUMBER THREE!!! Work smart and leave your comfort zone. This part is my qualifier for art school, tutorials, and educational resources in general, because they can be good, but only if you make them good. Once you've gotten in to the habit of drawing consistently, it's important to start being mindful of what you're drawing, how you're drawing it, and why you're drawing it. A key ingredient of success is hard work, but if that work isn't purposeful it might not move you

In part two I'm gonna talk about one of the biggest roadblocks I hear from artists who are having difficulty getting in to good study habits, so without further ado...
WISDOM NUMBER TWO!! Don't wait for perfect weather and stop making excuses. So often I hear things like "I don't want to waste paper" or "I don't know what to draw" or "I haven't found a good tutorial" or "I don't want to study perspective" or any number of things along those lines. I'll be blunt and just put the answer out there now: get over it. If you want to be an artist, you have to do the work, end of story. And with all the time you've spent thinking, wondering, being uncertain, and searching for that magical art secret of power, you could have filled 10 pages in your sketchbook today and inc

Printing your own manga: Ka-Blam, Lulu or else?Greetings everyone,Printing your own manga: Ka-Blam, Lulu or else?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since a lot of people here are manga artists, I was wondering if I could ask you something:
Do you print your own manga?
I've been visiting some PODs websites (Print On Demand) and so far, when it comes about publishing your own comic or manga, I've stumbled on KA-BLAM.com & LULU.com. I've read reviews from people who have used their services in the past and the opinions are quite mixed. I heard about ComiXpress, but it goes shot down...
Anyone among you ever experienced one of these printing services? And how was it? Who is better among these two? Please let me and everyone else hear about it. Thank you.

So let's get down and dirty with it:
THEME we gotta have one. It's like the law. This time round guys is NEW BEGINNINGS. That's it. You can do anything with this theme in mind, in any visual medium. This contest is running over the new year, new year new start and all, so hey, NEW BEGINNINGS! (Yes, yes I know. Providing the world doesn't end soon. though even that would be a kinda new beginning, it's the beginning of an afterlife or of nothingness or reincarnation, whichever belief you hold to.) So long as your work is titled and inspired by the idea of beginning, starting something new, something unknown

I started a daily monster sketch, so hopefully this will help make up for my lack of action for the past months. please feel free to join in on this excercise as well, i care less about the quality about these works, the important thing for me is keep doing one each day, hopefully to do this for a whole year. =] I think it will be a big dedication and accomplishment. =]
another Event i want to start is a contest of sorts, which would have two parts. the first part would be asking you to submit your original character for a random selection, this can be an image or description
