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!
tutorialsjust an announcement , this weekend im starting on some video + audio tuts... expect rude dickishness if the walk it off you pansy kind! XD. by that i mean , no tutorial will replace practice, it is meant to boost practice..so funtimes ahead!tutorials2 years ago in Personal More Like This

ravine-february 2013 here we go!unfortunately description of the story is outdated and fails to mention that ron marz is handling the final rewrite to tweak my croatian butchering of english language XDravine-february 2013 here we go!2 years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
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 september1 year 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.

Its personal journal time!I would have made this into a poll but I feel like its easier to discuss in a journal. Also I'm typing this all on my iPhone... Which is really really hard...

What do you think of people sharing their personal life on DA? Do you yourself treat it more as an art platform or do you also talk about your life and how you feel? Or do you keep that strictly to yourself? Also how do you feel when others you follow do or don't share stuff about themselves? What do you consider too much or too little, or do you even mind at all?
Personally... I like knowing a little bit about the people I follow, reminds me thy aren't just an icon/avatar and that they have a life too XD
I don't talk about my life on DA, other than cool stuff like wisdom tooth surgery XD but how I am feeling and drama I keep quiet because honestly I feel like my page is a place where

OFFICIALLY MOVED IN !AFTER A 9 MONTH CLOSING PROCESS....OFFICIALLY MOVED IN !2 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!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A note on popularitySomeone recently told me they saw my Aladdin/AC crossover pics and that they weren't impressed. They seemed to be implying that I was "selling out" in order to get more views.A note on popularity1 year ago in Personal More Like This
With regards to popularity: I am not in charge of what other users find fave-worthy. I never expected my silly crossover doodles to become as popular as they did. To me, art is about drawing what I want, not what other people want me to draw. That may sound cliché, but it's the truth. I draw a lot of fan art because it inspires me personally. I don't expect everyone to like it. If you're not impressed by my stuff, I'm sure there are lots of other (better) artists out there for you to follow.
P.S. Stop worrying so much about what makes it to the front page. We all know there's better stuff on DA that doesn't get enough attention. That's not the artists' fault. If I can live with all the fetish photography and inflation art, you can live with my crossover doodles for one day.
