Just had some awesome dinner and I've read up on your feedback. Thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts, and I'm happy to have provided my positive perspectives on Sonic Boom - optimism is a good thing to have in life, give it a go where you can!
Also, shoutout to :iconHappyAggro: for handing me this link on a quick summary of what's legit on the whole franchise as well as link to the latest updates of Sonic Boom when they come.
And oh my god, I felt like a kid all over again when I saw these!
Seriously THIS kind of stuff, concept artwork, was the main reason why I got myself a pencil and a paper on that very day (when I turned on my brother's SEGA SATURN to play SONIC JAM)

5 Nuzlocke cliches I don't likeHey everyone! I decided to make a different kind of list today of something that I've seen a lot in the Nuzlocke community. There is an overflow of comics and so many authors wanting to stand out from the crowd, and this is a normal ocurrance when it comes to artistic mediums. It is natural to feel frustrated and not being able to be recognized within a fandom with so many people. Even I've had a lot of frustrations and a great desire to improve my storytelling.5 Nuzlocke cliches I don't like1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I made this list to let people know of the stuff that its been way overused in nuzlocke comics. Some of these things are also a 'kiss of death' to the storyline. Now most of these things are NOT BAD, in fact they help making storytelling more dramatic. However, the point I'm trying to make is that they are 'overused' meaning that its been done countless of times and its your job as the author to make a different spin to the cliche. I am guilty of some of these tropes, since this is based on my own experiences and the coun

I couldn't stand having that 'cover' hanging in my front page for another day! So I bring you something completely opposite to what's bad in the arts/creative entertainment industry - something good and positive! Professional advice to be more precise but this guy named Joe Madureira (some of you will instantly recognise his art style in Marvel comics) knows what he's talking about, and he's one of the many hundreds of professional/commercial comic illustrators out there who are in the same boat. But what I like about Joe is that he's been very successful in his career, and after years of observation and feedback from aspiring artists he has decided to share some advice.

Know your Basics - TexturesThere are a lot of tutorials out there on how to create / photograph texture as well as how to use them on a technical level, but the question of why and when to use textures is rarely touched. This article wants to fill that gap and therefore looks at texures from a slightly different perspective.Know your Basics - Textures2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures in Manips as you know them
For a photomanipulator, the first thing that comes to mind when hearing the word "texture" are images that can be used in soft light or overlay mode to texture a manipulation or parts thereof. What most manipulators therefore have in mind, are images like the following:
Beautiful textures, sure, and useful, too, but have you ever thought of doing more with them than the aforementioned overlays? And have you ever considered using other kinds of textures, too?

I'm coming to you guys with a promo for a friend, but also asking for support for the independant artist in general. As an independant artist myself, I think it's important that we all stick together and help each other when we can.

BUT I DIGRESS! Angry Viking Press (AVP), is currently in need of support. And I think it's really, REALLY important and generally awesome to support them just by ordering a comic to put on your shelf. It supports not only the business and artists, but more importantly, this community. I mean, I run on the support and generosity of my followers, but I'm not the only one. I do not mean to

TOME Episode 04: "Fraggedquest" is released to Newgrounds, as well as the Traveler's Guide just for archival purposes. Thank you EVERYONE who helped put this episode together. I got wa too ambitious with it and it ended up being way longer than I expected, but I genuinely think it's our best one yet. Also, I apologize for any glitches in the animation and sound. I'm going to try and get the YouTube version completed next week and some of those issues will hopefully not be a problem anymore. Thanks for understanding and I hope you enjoyed the episode for what it is.
So people are probably immediately thinking, "when does Episode 05 come out?!" Well, the next step isn't that simple. Believe me, I'd LOVE to keep just making the episodes as I had originally planned and continue throu

First look at Jurassic World T-Rex from SDCC!

San Diego Comic Con keeps delivering the goods! Following up yesterdays amazing poster/art reveal, we now have our first look at Jurassic Worlds Tyrannosaurus! Click the picture below to see her in full:
While incredibly familiar to her first appearance, the design has undergone some tweaks: her skin is noticeably greener (though not as green as the TLW Bull Rex), her facial ridge highlights are pale as opposed to dark, and she has pale scutes running down her neck. Comic Con officially kicks off Thursday, so keep your eyes peeled for more from Jurassic World. While the chances may be slim, perhaps Legendary may share something Jurassic World related during their Saturday Hall H panel. Stay tuned for more upd

Advice on becoming a better artistI get asked by a lot of younger artists (and moms and grandmothers) for advice on getting better and becoming a professional comic artist. Hopefully this will help. Ask me more questions if I'm not clear enough and I'll try to post more about what I think makes a good artist and how to become a professional in the comic industry.Advice on becoming a better artist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you're not already aware, I'm a self-taught artist with little to no schooling on the subject. I thought I knew how to draw when I was a kid and I thought that drawing from shapes and building your characters out of forms was stupid. I don't know what the proper term for this is so I'm going to refer to it as construction drawing or under drawing throughout this post. My parents had purchased me some how to draw books, I also went to art class, and both of these tried to get me to use construction drawing techniques. Unfortunately I didn't understand the value of it and thus rejected it. I didn't need to build a tiger out of blocks, circles,

"A majority of you may not keep up with Tumblr, but there is a big community of Rise of the Guardians fans on there. There is a blog called GuardiansoftheGuardians, and they are gathering all ROTG fans into helping create a book. It's called the 'Book of Belief'. They have even contacted William Joyce himself on this matter, and he's in full support of it.
Basically, they are rounding up fans, and they can submit fan letters and fan art in contribution to this book. The contribution deadline is October 1st, so there is plenty of time, but they still want to get the word out to people.
They will pick out a ton of submissions and put them all in a book. They are planning to send it to the two directors of Rise of the Guardians at the Dreamworks studio (since its all
