ravine reviewsso issue 1 is finally coming out this Wednesday and the reviews are pouring in
aaand they seem to like it XD
buut for a democratic balance, i did find one that pretty much reviews it as worst comic aver XD
this is a very good thing. hype needs to be kept in check.
ultimately tho , like any other story, ravine is what you bring with you into it.
if you enter as a cynic, refusing to suspend your disbelief, it will be a pile of ass. same can be said for pret
ravine is out!aaand 11 years of work finaly comes to fruition...ravine is out!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
now to walk the full 12 issue journey.
and to get it to here....whooo boy it took its steps
10 years ago this is how it looked....
and then got redrawn, changed and upgraded about 20 times, hundreds of pages discarded as i progressed
but now, it finally started. over these 4 years i have to get all twelve 160 page issues out... and the last one 200 pages
lots of work to do!

ravine issue 2 is out in septembershould ave been august, but some unexpected problems popped out ...i hate unexpected problems....ravine issue 2 is out in september2 years ago in Personal More Like This
cause..yknow..expected ones are just friggin awesome XD
anyhoo issue 1 will be reprinted too and available.
about the books themselves. each issue is a 160 page graphic novel. of that book 1 is 120 pages of comic, and 40 pages of bonus world material. sort of an encyclopaedic, not necessary, but tasty fluff,
book 2 is 135 pages of comic and 25 pages of fluffy side stuff
series itself will consist of 12 books. so by is end it will be about 1500 pages of one single fantasy tale
early previews for boo 2 are here, and soon the ones with final text and lettering will be shown, online so i will link those when they are up
books are available for preorder through amazon , and pretty much any comic book store or top cow.
ravine-february 2013 here we go!unfortunately description of the story is outdated and fails to mention that ron marz is handling the final rewrite to tweak my croatian butchering of english language XDravine-february 2013 here we go!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
also pagecount is wrong, it is 140 pages
first issue is 10$
after that 15
for each issue. that on average brings you a series of fantasy graphic novels of 140 pages each.. later some even more..cough
value to eny comic reader is i think obvious, every 4 months you get one issue, that in pagecount equals over 6 standard 4$ issues that are usually done. my idea is a simple one. i dont want to drain people for the small floppy issues and have forced cliffhangers every 20 pages.
i want to make a true full blooded fantasy story, and for that, i need me a nice pagecount XD
but no worries, its loaded with dragons n stuff XD

OFFICIALLY MOVED IN !AFTER A 9 MONTH CLOSING PROCESS....OFFICIALLY MOVED IN !3 years ago in Personal More Like This
WE CLOSED ON MY NEW HOME ON NOVEMBER 15TH! :iconfinallyplz:
I just spent the past weekend getting everything in and partially unpacked.
I'll be ready to go on comics here shortly.
To give a quick overview of the situation i was faced with for the last 6 months, :icontomitakeflash: and I have been living out of a suitcase under the roof of friends. It's been very taxing on us. Essentially being homeless for 6 months put a BIG slow down on my productivity here on DA. It put a HUGE strain on Brad and my relationship and pushed our friend's nerves to the brink. Now that all is said and done, I feel we are stronger people for having to work through this. I now have a newly renovated 4 level, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, finished basement, beautifully landscaped slice of heaven to call my own.
No more apartment neighbors,
No more wasting money on rent,
It's the perfect place for Brad and I to make our own, and grow our lives.
SPEAKING OF GROW

Teen Titans: Birthmark Screenshots!For some time now, I've been wanting to do a picture of Raven from the Teen Titan's episode "Birthmark". Somehow I've just not gotten to it. Well today I decided to fix that, and started looking for some screenshots from the show for research. And...ugh. Nearly every screenshot I found was worthless. Having no choice, I pulled out my Season 4 DVD of Teen Titans and decided to grab some shots myself. (I even photoshopped a few images that were camera panning shots to make one image) Since it was a process, and maybe others have had this same frustration, I decided to upload a few of my shots for everyone. Hope this helps out! Enjoy.Teen Titans: Birthmark Screenshots!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome almost 3 1/2 years here on dA. Deviantart has truely become a part of my life, which I don't want to miss. You guys actually showed me, that I can achieve something with my passion, which has always been art, since I can remember. I appreciate everyone of you, my watchers, so much and I cannot believe there are actually almost 30,000 of you now. It is just incredible and unbelievable! And I reached the 400,000 pageviews today, which is also a huge milestone for me. Thank you for everything! You make my dreams become true!
And also a merry Christmas to everyone of you! I hope you have a great time with your beloved ones and enjoy the atmosphere of these wonderful days! May your wishes come true!

and I'm powerless.
You hurt me over and over ,
and I'm paralyzed.
You do what ever you want ,
and I'm incorporeal.
You prove to me everyday that my life is worthless.
Which is funny because to you my life is nonexistent ,
just like me.
Well you'll be happy to know :
My screams wont make a sound
My tears wont make you wet

who don't like the main characters of something.
people who HATE the main character for no reason other than THEY'RE THE MAIN CHARACTER.
I MEAN IT'S GREAT IF YOU LOVE ANY OF THE OTHER CHARACTERS BECAUSE OF WHO THEY ARE, THAT'S ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM AT ALL.
BUT IF YOU JUST
HATE THE MAIN ONES
JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE "HOGGING THE SPOTLIGHT" OR "TOO MAINSTREAM" WHATEVER THE FUCK
GET HOW YOUR MIND WORKS.
IF THEY HAVE A GOOD STORY AND A LOVABLE PERSONALITY, WHY HATE THEM?
Really you guys?
Love what you love, but don't hate for no motherfucking reason.
I get poked at a lot because I tend to choose characters that get a lot of screen time- IS THAT SUCH A CRIME? REALLY? WHAT THE HELL GUYS.
OH LOOK AT ME I'M A FUCKING HIPSTER I HATE THIS CHARACTER BECAUSE THEY'RE LOVED BY TOO MANY OTHER PEOPLE. WHOOP-DEE-MOTHERFUCKING-DOO.
AND IF YOU DO ACTUALLY LOVE THE MAIN CHARACTER BUT YOU DON'T SHOW IT, GROW A FUCKING PAIR OF BALLS.
This shit really grate
Like a Virgin.. Blocked for the very first time...Hello everyoneLike a Virgin.. Blocked for the very first time...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since my return to DA, I have been slowly catching up on devwatches, journals, favs, comments and that alone is keeping me a little busy on its own but get this: I discovered that I (finally) had the honor of being blocked for the very first time (that I know of, that is)
So I now know how it feels like
But you want to know why?
Because I Faved too much ...
Apparently, those who "fav too much" are suspicious of stealing images from the page and making money from them".. Oh-kay.
If I would block everyone who faved a lot I would be left friendless by now
I understand the paranoia and the natural reluctancy (which I myself am both guilty enough of) that coexisting with strangers from all over the globe brings, I mean this is the internet for petes sake. But to my belief: Faving is done to show support, to let them know you enjoy what they do. When did it become a "bad" thing?
Cold...I struggle to pull myself out of my chairCold...3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My bare feet brushing the carpeted floor
I look down at my feet; they're so cold
I drag myself to my small, cluttered bedroom
Fuzzy, warm slippers are pulled onto my feet
They cover the bottoms of my skinny jeans
I wiggle my freezing toes; they don't warm too well
I stop for a moment; my knee is locked again
Foot planted firmly on the floor
I force my joint back; I groan in pain when I feel it pop
My slippers drag across the floor
What am I doing? I ask myself
I don't answer
Wandering aimlessly around my small house
From one side to the other; back and forth
Occasionally walking into another room; just to see
I find my way back to my bedroom; it's rather cold in there
I wrap my blanket around my shivering body; will it even help?
Slowly walking back to my computer room; I want my laptop
I hear and feel my joints cracking and popping as I move
As I sit down in my chair I let out a groan; my back is killing me
I don't even open my laptop; there's

dumb thought of the dayevery now and then i get these stupid ideas.dumb thought of the day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
so here is the latest one...if gravity affects time, meaning stronger the gravity, more time is affected. and if the presumption is true that strong enough gravity can stop time..within a black hole
black hole has the mass of the collapsed star.... so... just before big bang we had all the cosmos compressed in a singular point with immeasurable mass, right?
that would mean that it is a ... sort of a non state point... a non event since time is in effective stasis.. space and time compressed in a singular point.
so an event has to transpire that was superior to all those 4 dimensions....
above time and space...
either this proves there is a God... or...doctor who is actually real!!!!!
yeah.... my mind is silly like that XD
aand just a warning if you take any of this seriously.....wwwow....i... damn! XD
