so i keep getting the same questions over and over again. how did i learn to do this.
i was self taught. by this i mean, i took the initiative and seeked out the knowledge, as no one was offering it.
i draw on average 8 to 10 hours a day, every day. by average i mean that some days its 6 and some 12
so... the argument.
i keep hearing this one. well i want to be a professional artist, but life is hard, i need to work, i don't really have the time....
let me put things in perspective here.
i used to work as a night guard on the beach. every single night from 8 pm to s6 am. after that i would go meet up with my dad who gouarded another beach to get a cup of coffee. we had a bite to eat, and then both went to haul and sell fruits and vegetables.
every evening i was drawing. when the sun set i sat under a street lamp and drew through the night.
every night. this was on occasion interrupted by a fight with some exceedingly drunk people who wouldn't
sunstone volume 3 preorder compilationsunstone..a book aboutsunstone volume 3 preorder compilation6 months ago in Personal More Like This
you know the deal-
sunstone is an indie book, comic book stores aren't likely to stock on those as they are not a guaranteed seller so...
preorders , pull lists all that stuff are the only way you are guaranteed to get the book
i wholeheartedly recommend you buy it from a comic book store if you have one near by for 2 reasons
1- you will get the book sooner
2 it supports comic book stores ... i like those
book is out in august .
so here is the list i gathered so far, if you got suggestions , feel free to add them in the comments

just a general faq on printed sunstonejust want to have a journal to link to people who are curios as i just lack the time to answer everybodyjust a general faq on printed sunstone2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1 yes sunstone will be sold in printed forrm as a series of books
2 each chapter will be 1 comic issue
3 i am currently finalizing printing arrangements
4 printed versions will feature improved art and writing, by art i mean obvious tweaks in anatomy , inking and so on, by writing i mean streamlined while keeping true to the material and at times better worded... with less typos....
I DIDN'T SAY NO TYPOS!
5 SUNSTONE WILL GENERALLY HAVE ABOUT 22 CHAPTERS
6 you might say it will be a sort of a 4 big parts to the story
first is the story of ally and lisa to a certain point, called sunstone
second is a story of alan and anne which will last about till chapter 12. ally and lisa will very much be featured in it vbut the focus will be shifted. subtitle of this one will be mercy
third will be about marion and james subtitled...not sure yet XD

i have seen in my life many artists who proclaimed they want to develop their skills, and kept bashing on everyone and everything on the way....and for some reason those guys never got anywhere...
here is why..
there is a value to different approaches, different styles. realism, manga , cartooney disney, my little pony, furries....don't waste your time tryint to bash any of the stuff you don't personally like
you are missing out, bigtime!
see there is a reason why that stuff is popular. and by that i mean on the visual side. so instead of flaming , trolling and bashing, try understanding the inner workings of it.
here are some specific examples
realism- it is a wonderfully complex base , reflects one's skill in capturing reality, but in it there are differences between photo referenced, real life work and no reference. ALL HAVE THEIR VALUE AND IMPORTANCE! from photos you can learn alot, gain analytic skills, develop an attention to
ApprenticeThis interesting boy who has such strong wit has finally earned my attention.Apprentice2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Or, shall I say, he's finally been given a hint to this 'attention.'
I pursued Robin and he shunned everything I so graciously gave him.
I offered Terra everything she never had, and she wanted only what I tried to shield her from.
I take no more "apprentices."
I need none.
This boy, however, can easily fill a role that is required. One that I have little time for. Having a place in my plans, this one will not evade me so easily as Robin and Terra.
Because unlike them, he is made for this... and by now he's realized it.
He willingly and eagerly chases the very paths that I tried to force my two failed apprentices down. The paths that make them sick to their souls and would have shattered them eventually.
I do not need to give this boy a choice, as he has made one before I even noticed him and his admirable achievements.
I think he will take compliment in all that I am going to do

ravine- epic fantasy 1 issue out, 2 about to be published
teen witchblade, adventure/comedy being finished, and issue 1 will be posted here
new strips and updateswill be coming soon. the ending of the chapter is a complex thing to make as i feel that it needs to end on that high note, and i have it all ready, cept the very last 3strips will be a bitch to draw XD...a cool, fun yet complicated storytelling idea to makenew strips and updates3 years ago in Personal More Like This
but it will be worth it.
and then chapter 4 which will be funny sexy and dramatic... so..yknow...like the previous ones... well maaaybe with a bit more sexy and funny but with a strong dramatic moment and a very powerful payoff...so..cant wait
also almost done with reformatting of book 1 of sunstone for print, it will be about the same size as ravine, same pagecount and will consist of first 2 chapters.
artwork for print will be upgraded on quite a few places, and dialogues rewritten and streamlined by my partner on ravine ron marz, so te printed version will read oh so smoothly
of course, the themes ideas and everything else will remain the same , only will be better worded
i saw frozen and hobbit this week (spoilers)so here are my superspoilery opinions of these movies ---i saw frozen and hobbit this week (spoilers)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
just opinions, there is no more validity to them than to anyone elses
so, let's start with frozen....
i made a huge mistake before frozen...huuugeeee mistake.
i listened to that let it go song....
now, what follows is an example how one small thing can snowball into a huge friggin thing... see what i did there ? snowball?
so i listened to that song.. and ..um.. it sounded glorious... but it also sounded like an anthem to coming out of the closet.... i mean, i deal with subtext a lot. and even i have seen people see more in my own writing than i intended. rarely but it happened. so subtext is hardly a new thing ...
we are talking about a song that says
don't let them know don't let them see , be the good girl you always have to be
conceal don't feel don't let them know... well now they know...
and this is just some of it... there is this vibe of a sexual liberation in the s

it was most unusual for him to ask that, and usually i am shit at even promoting my own stuff... if it wasn't for my fans and readers...whoo boy XD
so i stood baffled as to how do i even do this... and then i looked at the files he had sent me...
f&/k it! i know exactly how to go about this!
if you want to have an ultimate tool of ever mastering the art of painting values, whether you like comics or not, this is your friggin book!
not kidding! this dude, Adrian Smith, wipes the floor with my value skills and composition skills XD
brilliant designworks, graphic novel is not of the wordy variety as he allows the art to tell the story, and genres and stories being very personal taste based i can't tell you whether or not it will be your c

after im done with the new issue of aphrodite i will finish 2 strips, and then after san diego comic con my schedule will finally be free. from then on you will see aaaaalot more sunstone, quite frequently, and a definite announcement of book 1 print

The Used Game ParadigmOver the course of this past generation I've been watching the video game market react to the way it's been forced to deal with increasing changes. I've come out against used game sales and even written a journal about boycotting GameStop because (like most people at the time) I believed they were the root cause of all the problems the video game industry has. But that's something I don't believe now as intently as i did then. From where I sit, piracy and used games sales are a problem, but not in the way game companies want us to believe that they are.The Used Game Paradigm2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Used games are a good thing for consumers. We get to try games out, and if we don't like what we see or finish it early, we trade it in and try another title instead. It's a very good system for us since video game rentals are much harder to come by. Most video rental stores in America have gone extinct and outside specific Red Box Kiosks there aren't a lot of places for consumers to rent video games. The exception, of course, being thr
