Characters I Love: SupergirlCharacters I Love: Supergirl7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Jenn from Dangerous Ladies @ DA
I had been thinking about doing something like this for a while. Outlining why I enjoy certain characters and who better to start out with than my favorite superheroine, Supergirl.
I feel slightly bad that I can't recall when I first learned of Supergirl's existence. After much thinking (and head pounding) my best guess is it was with the Superman: The Animated Series episode Little Girl Lost. Now before I was a Supergirl fan I was (still am but as I say, Kara is easier on the eyes lol) a Superman fan. I know people call him boring, a boy scout, but Superman is the archetype superhero. Personally, I like the idea of an absolute good guy hero so Supes always will be one of my favorite heroes. So as a much younger Mad Man (minus my pen though) I watched STAS and fed my growing love of the DCAU. Then we get to Little Girl Lost and I meet Supergirl.

Shit Hitting The FanAs some of you may have read on my Facebook this morning, last night and perhaps a couple weeks ago, the 'ol SquirrelShaver has been going through some shit and I wanted to take a moment to clarify some issues. As a professional artist sometimes these are lessons learned the hard way because the politics of the industry, comic books in particular, are so sensitive. I'm normally very reserved and my wife and I keep these situations to our own circles but things need to be vented before my eyes explode.Shit Hitting The Fan3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1st.) Don't sell yourself short when selling artwork. You put your time and effort, sweat and tears into every piece of art that you create and you, if no one else, should respect that. Set a price and stick with it. No one is coming to you at your job to haggle you about prices on sheet rock, a gallon of milk, or that awesome new purse that Coach just released right? No. Your price is the price.
Also, if you have a piece of art th

As always, we are looking for well-rounded, realistic, three-dimensional characters. This is a reiteration from past commentaries (i.e. 2012 Fall: http://sta.sh/0j8n2srny38 || 2013 Spring: http://sta.sh/0187wfx7ktg8 ) but remains a crucial point. Remember, your biography and personality should also read and feel COHESIVE. This means that the experiences your character has gone through in your bio has somehow influenced who they are as a person.
There were a good number of profiles who nee

7DaysLangerFor people who would like to see how I worked on my Kallen copslay7DaysLanger2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I specially did this cosplay for Gitta Vt because she needed someone (from Brussels) to make a short documentary about.
she had already someone…
But since she didn't respond on her mails and stuff, she looked for someone else. As a student photographer I know how hard it is to find models so I helped her out!!
I had 2 weeks time before the event (Japan Expo Belgium 2012).
That's what I thought first XD.
In total…I spend 3 days and 3 evenings to make this…
Not cause I'm lazy or stuff like that…More cause of school…I had to combine cosplay and school, I've really underestimated it (I also thought the cosplay would be easy..but really?? NO)
What I've learned of this???
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A COSPLAY AGIAN!!! NO MORE MAKING COSPLAYS IN SHORT TIME
Hooo well, I had a great time and it was a nice experience.
I think she did a great job ♥.

Fall of Xephos Contest
Since the poll tells me that alot of you want a FoX contest I'm going to go for it and give yah all a contest...
Now judging from the poll the people whom want a contest is over 70 people, if I don't get at least a 4th of that (which is just 17 to 18 people) I'm pulling the contest and not going to have a second contest once the series is over.
The contest is simple -
There will be two catagories. Best Picture and Best Short Story and there must be at least 17 people entered for both to continue that particular catagory for contest or I will drop the catagory.
FoX related. There will be no cross overs, no OCs, just those who are of t

From the recent poll, people asked me to start the Fall of Xephos as a web comic to where you will only see the comic itself and nothing else that could try your patients with Mario or MLP postings.

Final Auction for Michael Morones Recovery FundHi Everyone,Final Auction for Michael Morones Recovery Fund1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I realize I've been hitting your inboxes pretty hard lately with the fundraising efforts for Michael Morones, and I apologize for inundating you with updates and further requests for aid.
The fantastic news is that between the two auctions and a my donation we've raised $2200 for Michael and his family! The response to this tragedy has been nothing short of inspiring and I can't thank everyone enough for stepping up with love and support and for such unbelievable compassion and generosity.
I had planned to stop with the two auctions last week, but G.M. Berrow, author of the fantastic series of MLP official novels asked me to run one more with a treasure trove of her priceless pony possessions. And she's not the only one. Andrea Libman, Matt Hill, Tabitha St Germain and Peter New also offered their own autographed prints and memorabilia.

Although I would love it if you watched the video, it shows no where near as much work as was put into this shoot. Some of this is embarrassing but I love reading about people's mistakes and how they overcame them. So here are mine.
I bought the costume last November, thinking I would be able to shoot the next week, edit easy peasy and be done in a month. Right.
I booked the first model several times over the course of 3 months but she flaked every time. I'm actually quite happy, as Laura turned out to be PERFECT, easy going, and an overall better model. Laura was kind enough to shoot with me twice, as I was hesitant about the poses I picked out. We kept some, threw out others and added new ones for the second time around.
For the WWI shot, I first tried to make the Notre Dame ruins by hand or find realistic models used for game tables. Turns out no one buys them anymore and thus I had no luck finding one. I att

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

PAY RATE OF THE COMIC ARTISTOver the past few weeks, Ive had a few queries for work as a comic book artist. Some from private individuals and some from professional companies and as always the sticky issue of costs comes up.PAY RATE OF THE COMIC ARTIST4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I personally like to be very frank and upfront about cost to people. My time is quite limited so I cant afford to dance around the subject on tip toes hoping to lure them in for a bite. The result so far has been I havent heard back. For me, thats okay cos like they say time is money and for me thats especially true. Plus, I dont want to put out for less than my time is worth. I may not be a big name (yet), but it doesnt mean Im going to sell myself short.
The result of all these queries though has been a closer look into what I should be charging. I dont want to charge for more than my name is worth (is stress the word name) and take advantage, but on what planet am I going to charge a measly $25 (£15.44) per

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art
