JUNE CONTEST RESULTS!RESULTS!JUNE CONTEST RESULTS!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, after about six solid straight hours of reading and deliberating your entries, I've finally come to a (very strangled) conclusion. As I was watching the entries come though last month I already realised this would be an extremely difficult one to pick, as many of you are fantastic well-rounded writers in your own right. I never expected the quality of so many of these stories to be so good, so give yourself a pat on the back for making my life as a contest judge horribly difficult.
In the end I came to three standouts, who on the whole each did a marvelous job. I couldn't possibly demote any to third place (which has no prize) and so, at equal second, are...

Awarded because yours was the only piece to make me giggle. Well, not just that; it was wonderfully abstract, and written in an incredibly engaging manner.

All those problems with starting the application and using wrong settings etc. should now be resolved because I have created an own JWildfire-dedicated launcher!
To make it even more sweet the JWildfire users group did a contest for creating images which are displayed in the launcher. So you are always welcomed with a nice image
Additionally there are about 20 new variations available most of them are supporting the 3D mode
Complete list of changes:
- created a own JWildfire launcher (as separate application), removed the previously used launcher ("appstart")
- included 15 images from the launcher image voting contest into the launcher
- save/restore the desktop- and window-position and size
- several internal changes to the julia* variations, additionaly those variations now always start with a random power index which may produce even more interesting results in the various random f

Wonder Woman Reborn
Supers V Wonder by JoshJ81
The collective fan community sigh of relief that a female director has been chosen to bring the Amazonian Goddess to life on the big screen has been echoing across the web ever since Monday’s announcement that Michelle McClaren had won that coveted crown. Here at DA HQ, we can’t help but imagine what Joss Whedon might have done with the character.
Pray no one involved in the Catwoman movie gets close to it.

Octavia Butler the Slayer of Stereotypes…
How many times have artists been dismissed or discouraged because of someone else interpreting their audacity as egotism? Octavia Butler started writing science fiction because of the film Devil Girl From Mars. Don’t misunderstand–she wasn’t inspired by the movie, she knew that she could write a better story.
Growing up in Pasadena, California, Butler was shy and introverted. She preferred writing stories over socializing. When she was twelve years old she saw Devil Girl From Mars, and began writing science fiction in an effort to do the genre some justice.
In the end she succeeded by leaps and bounds. Butler’s work is recognized as groundbreaking, not least of all b

2D + 3D CommissionsHello, you arrived at my Commisions page2D + 3D Commissions4 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are interested in getting a CGI image created for you, please continue to the section you are interested in. There are three sections:
2D section covers all kind of colored, shaded images, preferably drawn with outlines.
3D works is about polygonal objects of all kinds, textured and with some post-processing for nice looks.
Vector images refer to things drawn with hard lines and occasional shading, such as blueprints and ink-like drawings.
I do all kinds of art and I'm opened to different styles (vector drawings of a Star Wars ship, 3D render of a Stargate vehicle, blueprint for a Dune tank and of course every kind of original universe objects and scenes) so don't be afraid to ask for anything that you can think of.
You can also check examples of my commisioned work and private gallery works on the bottom of this entry.
I am looking forward to working with you and seeing a happy finish

understand a painting study dont just copyThis is purely an observation from my point of view but whenever i see a study or painting based on a masterpiece or a screen plate. The results are almost in every case very good.So this tells me that our ability to copy is quite good and its not really required to be a high level artist.Junior level to mid level ones can pull this off easily too. Everything you need to know is already in the image we are trying to copy so it becomes a recipe for us.understand a painting study dont just copy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
the important thing though is to not "copy" it but to understand it and deconstruct a work method from it.And if you understand that then the work based from your own mind will be alot better.
When i see this kind of work , for me its not the level of detail and accurcy that one puts in the copied artwork that impresses me, but the images based on that learned knowledge afterwards. And to tell you the truth not many people understand this knowledge or are aware of how important it is to understand it.But the interesting phenomenon is that
Design a character for the comic- Closed Winner has been chosenDesign a character for the comic- Closed1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Unique with a nice mix of colors, I think it will look great in Asmundr.
Thank you all for your wonderful designs <3 When it comes to the designs that didn´t win the creator may use it as a character just not in the kennel rpg games.
Further into Chapter 5 of the comic I will introduce a new character and it´s a male Malay
So to make it more interesting I decided to make a design contest.
The design should be simple yet unique, the character will be drawn multiple times so I can´t have a design that is a complicated panthera pattern for example.
Design as crazy as you like but the animals of Asmundr still follows the basic genetic rules, a dog with a liver nose will have liver pigment in the coat etc.
Deadline: 4th August.

Tough Love: How To Make A ComicOr Decide You Don't Want To After All.Tough Love: How To Make A Comic2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen comic how-to-get-started guides before, and they're all so ninny-nippled they word it like anyone can make a comic, wow, so magical and fun!
Wrong. Everyone and their pet dog has a "story" they want to "write" or "make a comic of." Face it, it ain't gonna happen for 99% of us. You gotta have self-discipline and stubbornness to get anything done. And you can't just avoid the stuff that sounds too hard. It's a package deal.
1. Having a character doesn't mean you've done anything. Maybe you've spent a year deciding on the perfect hairstyle and three years before that developing his complex personality, and technically, you spent the entirety of your high school career on him too, since he's a "redesign" of an old fancharacter--who cares! Making characters doesn't take years. In fact, you're hurting your story by keeping characters around for that lon

Artist's Pet PeevesSo, there are all of these fantastically lucky artists out there that receive recognition, acclaim, and actual money for their artistic endeavors. They seem to do this without much effort. It is almost as though they have had fan-magnets secretly embedded under their skin by aliens.Artist's Pet Peeves4 years ago in Personal More Like This
This isn't about them. They have their own journals. And probably their own set of pet peeves that are extremely different. Or maybe eerily similar. Which is awesome, simply because all things eerie are awesome.
This is just a random selection of peeves I have accumulated and kept on a shelf for the last few years as I have tried to be a ' real artist ', in the middle of nowhere, where the definition of art is still " Looks Like Norman Rockwell ".
