The Indiegogo project for Deuxmos and the Create-A-Kits is now live!!!! Go check it out! There are rewards for contributing and some of your contribution amount is tax deductible thanks to our sponsorship through Fractured Atlas and their partnership with Indiegogo!! Please tell everyone you possibly can so we can get the project really going and so we can make Create-A-Kits better and even easier! Eventually we want to make it so all you have to do is assemble and paint them if that's what you want!
Here's the Incentive list! Remember, Indiegogo is for the purpose of contribution, rewards are secondary. So the price listed next to the reward is not how much they actually cost from Deuxmos.com. If you want to get a kit but only have enough money for just the kit and not to contribute extra to the project, please feel free to buy them directly from the site here http://deuxmos.artin

Hi! No, this isn't possible and all reports should go to the helpdesk so that there's an official record of it. Notes don't keep that. Thank you!

A letter for you all. Here am I once again writting to you guys, and this may be the last time.....A letter for you all.3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Things have gone horribly bad in real life, from bullying to my friend being diagnosed with lung cancer (he smokes). And I just feel that life can't get any better now. But the thing is...
I found a solution.
I have clarity! I see the thruth!
A moment of suffering, a sudden catastrophic collapse...
...then it's all over.
A calm, eternal peace. That no one can steal from me or make me feel bad.
I see it now, how did I not think of this before? It's genius!
But... im also sorry for anyone that may be sad after this. I know your hearths will be broken, or not.
Remeber those embarassing things I've done here? Or when i fucked everything up? You all forgot that.
Forget about me and don't cry.
In 48 hours, I will be deactivating my account and my body will rest. I will be still replying to comments till then.
As to my friends, farewell and have a good life, because I have not.

DA's Commission System and Minimum WageDA has recently announced a new portal for users to search through those offering commissions to find artists they want to support.DA's Commission System and Minimum Wage2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The commissions system will be handled using DA's internal currency system of points, of which DA takes a royalty from.
Commissions are allowed to start at 10 points each for any type of art produced, from rough sketches and small icons to full digital works. Commissions is a great way for artists to offer their services, but are we creating a low-wage market where over-abundance of supply and lack of unification undercuts everyone?
That is to say, how can we guarantee that artists get paid fairly for their work?
10 points is roughly 13 cents. 1000 points may seem like a large commission, but it's really only $10.
Right now DA takes a 20
RESPEITE-SE !!Perdi a conta de quantas vezes alguém, seja uma grande empresa ou uma pessoa, pediram-me para ilustrar para eles de graça. Será sempre algo assim: "Você desenha isso por nós, e nós iremos incluir o seu nome nos créditos. Isso é uma boa publicidade para você!" como se uma oferta tão patética tivesse qualquer mérito.RESPEITE-SE !!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Houve um caso específico em que um cara queria usar o meu desenho como uma capa de livro, mas não queria pagar. Ele disse que poderia imprimir até 50 mil livros, de modo que é como uma oferta incrível de 50.000 visualizações para mim, certo? Errado. 50.000 não é nada. Vivemos na revolução da informação. Não se esqueça que temos lugares como deviantART, Tumblr e todos os sites de redes sociais. Compartilhamento de arte, assim como compartilhamento de qualquer informação, nunca foi tão fácil.

Why I Draw Women OftenI recently got a message, and I will slightly reword it so as not to cause profane friction, nor will I state who it came from, but it read like this: "Why is everything you post regarding a woman? I think it's very sexist when the only thing you can draw are breasts and buttocks like it's the only thing in the world."Why I Draw Women Often3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so by now, if you haven't been watching me for a good minute, you know that I really like to draw women, and I like portraying the female form, usually and often in a tasteful manner. I could hypothetically end that question there and just answer "I wasn't aware everything in my gallery was a woman or had breasts and a butt" and then post a picture or two of Rai Rivet... But I'm not going to do that. I'm going to explain my stance on drawing the female form and my adoration for it.

But even though temporary, it did changed my perspective on some matters.
It's weird how much the internet can become an influence, and how this process goes so unnoticed. At a certain point the countless voices of people around you blend into a continuous buzz. A buzz that you soon get so familiar with that you forget there was a life before it. I guess that's what social media does in general; creating a buzz. An artificial need for you to continuously be online and check your messages, because you might just miss something otherwise. Life, in general, has become so infused with the internet that it sometimes scares me. I'm part of the internet industry. Hell, I even made it my job! But even I sometimes find myself wondering where the time has gone that I could work on an artwork for hours straight, without feeling that creeping itch to check my messages.
The last few weeks before the break, I've repeatedly felt bad about
Save 2D animation with Steampunk?A Disney animation pal, James Lopez, has brought together a group of killer Disney veterans to create a 2D short called 'Hullabaloo'. It's currently set up as a short but with your support & donations, they can make more shorts, expand it into a web-series, a TV show or even a full-length movie. Hullabaloo is set in a Steampunk universe, stars female protagonists and action galore. The good news is that they are about to reach their financial goal on Indiegogo, but if they EXCEED it, it means they can make a second (and third) short! Once you see the trailer his has up, I promise, you will be blown away! Its just like a good Disney film because its the same people making it- but this one is for them, not the mouse! Go support, even the smallest donation helps show your support! (And I want them to stay busy, I might have a secret project coming up where I can use them when they are finished- gotta keep the band together!)Save 2D animation with Steampunk?10 months ago in Personal More Like This

2 i was a traditional sculptor..alas photos of that stuff mostly got lost
so here is what i did in high school.... by nebezial
i practiced abour 17 yeears now to get this bunch of mostly self taught techniques to work
most of my stuff is a digital painting now, made or drawn in photoshop cs3. never switched higher as cs3 satisfied all my photoshoppin needs
i used to do quite a bit of modelling in 3d studio max, but it was too technical of a program so eventually i gave it up and completely switched to zbrush as it provided me with excellent set of organinc modelling and texturing tools

I'm not sorry at all that I am in the pursuit of beauty in my work.
I'm not going to stop for anyone. I do what I do, because I enjoy it.
For years all I built was big space marines and ww2 soldiers, no one ever once told me back then I should 'diversify' and 'do something else' no one ever hassled me either it's just pretty much accepted. Pretty girls though?
Well you know what, I call BULLSHIT.
If you look at my work and all you see is a sex-doll, that's your business not mine.
I never intended any of my girls to be this way. None. If you ask me about any of them, instead of taking them at face value like so many people do, you would discover that they all have intricate back stories, and all mean a great deal to me personally due to what was going on at the time in life etc.

-Nagato doesn't want to, but he actually can devour souls if he wished. its a common demon ability that all dark creatures are born with.
-Cesar is literally a walking nuclear bomb. And he has detonated himself once...
-If Elina sees her family in trouble, she releases her true power, being even stronger than Nagato's father Nero(who was known as the Black Knight!)
-Jade may be a plush, but in her Puppet form, she excels at knives. Actually, she has saved C before by tossing a knife into one of the enemy's skull...
-Mary's giant maw is capable of biting a tree in half! And she has used it in a flesh being before...

*Cancer doesnt work like that
-she said she was bald from cancer, no thats chemo and it takes months of treatments and pain to do it. Your weak, sick, its killing your body.
- you cant get cancer surgery, theres surgery to remove tumors but not "cancer surgery"
-6 days to live, a doctor would NEVER tell a patient that. They would say "Days, weeks, months"
-"Twins" that had different birthdays by months, exact same art.
It was the same person, trying to get pitty watches. Sorry everyone.
Its a hoax everyone.
The "twin" is the same person just getting attention from you all. Taking the publicity from her "dead" sibling.
Enjoy being upset, they are playing everyone. Its disgusting.
