Year 2012 Feature #3Woo, we're already on nr 3 and if all goes as I planned it's only one left after this. It will of course not be my last feature, I had lots of others planned Anyway, here you go, another 22 deviations!Year 2012 Feature #31 year ago in Art Features More Like This
About the feature: I asked at the end of 2012, in the forums, for people's personal favourite from that year and they had to explain WHY. I'm therefore, finally, showcasing the art and the artist's reason to picking the art. For once it's not about the most faved one or the one that got a DD but about those that made us do something new, taught us something, that took hours on end faster than usual... no matter the reason it's about what the artist think and not everyone else.
Why I do this feature? I do this feature because I think it's important to remind oneself that it's not about the favs, DDs or views, the most important opinion about your art should be your own. Not how popular it is. Your favourite artwork should be so no matter how few or many favs it has.

Art is dead.THIS WEEK IN ARTWEEK:Art is dead.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Is traditional art becoming a lost art form? From the looks of it, yes. Scanning the front page on dA, one seems to see less and less traditional art every year. Of course, times and methods change- but doesn't this put disadvantaged creators at a well, disadvantage? Is there a bias against traditional art developing on deviantart? Where did the idea come from that going from paper to digital is a "step up"? We see this in other media as well. We ditch hand-drawn 2D animation for 3D, then wonder why the quality suffers. We inject our lines with stabilizers and homogenizers, then wonder why it tends to look the same. We force talent- instead of allowing it the time to grow naturally, we want to be good right now-- and take shortcuts to get there.
Maybe it's the fact that everyone started with paper, and familiarity breeds contempt. Maybe it's because all the big artists almost exclusively use digital art. Or something else entirely-
But one artist I know reb

As some of you people know, I am a fan of Kill La Kill and have been riffing on the "uniforms" of the rebel group Nudist Beach with crossover characters.
As you can see from the recruiting poster, there is a basic uniform design but you can customize it - as I have - for the various characters I have drawn.
Even the 4 Devas have their very own version of a Nudist Beach uniform so there really aren't any limits except that you can't technically be wearing clothes - you can only wear accessories such as hats, belts, straps, s

Three months after the beginning of The Adventures of Etirella, I was very happy to have submitted the epilogue two days ago
But of course, you know it, this won't be the end
First, I wanted to write stories for only Etirella.
But now, things have changed
Etirella will become the leader of a team of superheroes, known as the Blue Guardians as you know it ^^
Thanks to my awesome friend :iconCaptain-Paulo:, the team is complete, and you'll discover them soon ^^
The second serie will especially welcome the Gene-Sis
Two great teams for great adventures !
Unfortunetaly, the second serie won't become before a long time

And I have to find a new job before October
I want to say "Coming this Summer", but I won't make any promise ^^'

Not Gadot!It was announced a few days ago (I’ve been outa the loop and didn’t hear till this morning) that Wonder Woman will be showing up in Man of Steel 2: Batfleck Rises.Not Gadot!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
It’s also been hinted that other familiar faces from the Batman universe will either appear or be referenced.
First concern at this news is that they’re moving too fast. WB are looking enviously at the cash-cow that is The Avengers and are force feeding their own franchise all manner of unhealthy things in an effort to hasten its development.
If they don’t devote the same amount of time to character development as the Marvel films did, the general movie-going audience isn’t going to have a real desire to see a JLA flick as they will simply feel no connection to the characters.
Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America. There were 5 movies before we got to Avengers. It made people invest in the universe that was being presented.

Wacom and INFINF drivers from the chipset are important. I just realized windows by default gives you some really old generic drivers that wont work with your mother board, yes makes the computer able to work, but doesnt do it right.Wacom and INF5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Always had thought that the windows update searched for the best drivers your mother board can use............WRONG.
Sucks to know that been using my computer with the wrong drivers for almost two years, alwyas felt the pressure of the tablet super wrong. I barely touched the tip tot he screen and was already giving me 30% of the pressure. I noticed this by helping other deviant art user who had a similar problem.
Realized all my usb drivers were from 2006, that doesnt even made sense because mother board was 2 years old. So i look on my mother board web page, searched for the chipset drivers(there are two) install and reset.
Now its ridiculous how my tablet behaves, i put my settings on the minimals, and i mean super smooth, with the lowest hardest pressure and

He did a great deal of work with Jim Henson and company, so, anyone who A) was a child, and/or B) ever watched TV, will most likely have seen or heard him at some point.
Due to the fact I suck at math, The Count obviously failed me on that front, but damn did I get some good tips on maniacal laughter.

kickstarter?Hello all! I've seen more and more kickstarter projects come by lately, it seems like this method of funding is an increasingly popular thing. I really LOVE this concept, because of the opportunities it gives people who can't find funding elsewhere and the way people can participate in the creation of different kinds of projects. As someone who basically has her entire art career online and thinks sharing the things I do is absolutely crucial to my progress, I see the growth of kickstarter projects as a really positive development!kickstarter?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I am very excited to make these but the problem has always been that I had to put the Trichrome work aside for freelance work quite often, since you know, I need to pay the rent and all! I
