Ebony-chan's Indiegogo CampaignGood afternoon everyone. First I'd like to thank BIGBOY2480 for letting me post this here. He's a very kind person. The reason I'm making this post is because I need help funding my indiegogo campaign so I can get my comic book enigma up off the ground and into comic book stores.
I also need the funds to pay my fellow indie artists to work on this comic book. Fellow Deviantart artist DualMask will be doing the coloring for my enigma comic. DualMask is a very cool and awesome artist and his coloring is amazing you can see it here. http://dualmask.deviantart.com/
Here are some samples from the comic.
I'll also be using some of the funds to pay other artist and get the book printed which by no means are cheap, plus as a thank you for your donation I will be offering perk gifts as a thank you for you donation.
So please if you can stop by my indiegogo campaign and make a donation, if you can't make a donation then help out by spreading the word about the Enigma

Muslim-Manga 5th Anniversary Contest (Closed) Assalamu'alaikum Brothers and Sisters!Muslim-Manga 5th Anniversary Contest (Closed)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The contest has now ended! We will proceed to the voting session here:
Time sure does pass really fast doesn't it?
This 1st of May 2014 will mark the 5th year Muslim-Manga has established itself on DeviantArt.
Praise be to God, that with His will; we are still able to stand strong for half a decade!
Therefore, we have chosen to have a special contest with the theme:
Support Muslim-Manga (5th Anniversay)
The task is fairly simple; draw an illustration that shows support for Muslim-Manga.
Always try to be creative! The drawing should either include Aya, Sura (our new Mascot) or both of them together.
Here is a sketch and a short description of Aya and Sura:

Nickelodeon's changing job requirements...Looks like Nickelodeon is easing up on their usual policy of 3-5 years experience needed for storyboarding jobs. I know that always frustrates new artists trying to get in to the field. A new job post separates the requirements into "Basic Quaifications" (which I assume means that they're required) and "Desired qualifications" (Which sounds to me like its preferred, but not a deal-breaker). Now they desire only 1 year of experience, but they add: "and/or training on a similar show; or equivalent combination of education and experience." The bottom line is that studios just want someone good and reliable, but they don't want to swim through an ocean of amateurish portfolios from people that are clearly not prepared for the job.Nickelodeon's changing job requirements...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Anyone else have an entry?
Four entries in!
END DATE: April 9
This time it's for real folks, the people have spoken, and I want to thank everyone for making this possible, from those of you who made suggestions, to those of you who voted, to those who are donating prizes, and those who hopefully will be drawing us stuff.
Our first Princess Tutu contest theme will be "Fairytales", as voted by a landslide decision.
END DATE: April 9
The runner-up suggestions were:
Tutu Around the World
Tutu Through the Ages
Which could show up in a future contest. "Modern" came the closest in second, which gave me an idea. What about a "modern fairytale?"
All arts MUST involve recognizable Princess Tutu characters and have the theme of "Fairytale."
If you'd like to incorporate the theme of "modern fairytale" or one of the other themes as well, go for it! Creativity is key! Personally, I'd love to see "The Steadfast Tin Soldier" but it'

800 points = around $10.
400 points = around $5
40 points = ¢50
Do you really want to spend a long amount of time on a drawing only to receive the equivalent of half a dollar?
If you want to share things for cheap or free because you enjoy doing it than by all means do so, but what I'm saying is, don't under value yourself, and for the love of god don't do commissions for 5 or 10 points. You're working for next to nothing if you do that.
What you need to do is find a good place to sell your art so you can sell it at a reasonable fair price that's fair to both you and the buyer. There are places around on dA for this.
Commissions-R-Us say that "A group dedicated to helping people in the search of commissions to be made, allowing them to find somebody to request a commission from deviants at different ways to pay, such as using the Deviantart Points, paypal, etc.

black comics and manga (again)I here all the time there should be blacks represented in comics and manga. Then comes the stock answer " we have to make our own". Black people have been making their own comics for a long time. only way we can actually make a difference in the industry is by buying them.black comics and manga (again)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The people of color community has more buying power and financial influence than ever and we are not collectively exercising it. If we want industries to pay attention to us then we have to show it with how we spend our money.

PAID GIG: 2D Environment Artist for CryamoreYOYOPAID GIG: 2D Environment Artist for Cryamore1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I rise from my grave to say that I'm looking for one or two reliable, very brave souls who are not scared of drawing rocks and boulders (and other cool setpiece'y environments).
As you may know, I'm currently (yes, still…) working on Cryamore and we're about to have another boost in our productivity but this time I'm looking to contract out 1 or 2 artists to directly assist me with background work and environments.
At this moment, this mainly consists of inking rough layouts of areas (in a very moderate resolution; we draw assets near-native of the game's resolution) within the defined style. (If you are comfortable with color and think you can render in the appropriate style, then that's a plus. I'll think about giving out assignments like that but only if I can see that you're capable of it in your work, cuz I'm a stickler for keeping things within the style of the game… hence the reason why I've been doing every environment myself

A: Nope. It has to be one of your MONSTER HIGH OCs! This is called "The Next Top Monster" after all.

A: Remember, being a model is tough work. It's improper etiquette to ever be late to a photoshot or even to a a Design House when you have an appointment. I expect all models to complete EVERYTHING on time. It's better to submit early, than late. And YES you can submit your picture in before the due date.

Improve your art skills! Don't use bases!Just wanted to throw out some links made by some of our fellow and awesome Monster High artists that take the time to make tutorials to help others improve their art skills!Improve your art skills! Don't use bases!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's face it. Much of the Monster High art seen on the internet is all made from BASES! This is not a good thing. 98% of the monster high bases used were traced from official monster high images. This is also called ~Art Theft~ I for one am not a fan of it. I would rather see our up and coming MH artists spend that time working on their own art skills so they can draw for themselves and not use bases!
Bases are bad, Mmkay? x3
