Remember, I don't promise anything because I draw depending on my mood and my time. Leave your link, armed yourself with patience and luck.

Well we all know it's easier said than done, but as it turns out.... sometimes it works.
And its worth at least trying it.
I haven't really posted any updates on my recent life happenings here, mainly because I didnt really want to talk about them, and it was really hard for me to do so. It still is.
But now something has happened, something I absolutely didn't believe would ever be possible.
A small recap.
To make a long story short, let's just say I was unhappy, in probably the worst possible way.
Nothing made sense, and I felt like a prisoner, trapped in a reality I had no place in, without any possibilities of escaping it.
I hated this place, I hated my school, I hated everything.
And I just wanted to give up.
My dream was to be an artist, it has always been, and for some reason I felt like EVERYTHING was trying its hardest to not allow me to pursue it.
So I just...stopp

I will definitely convert the 'badass monster search-journal' into an official mini contest, because most of you would doodle something up for me and i dont want you to do that, if its just a dumb trade journal?
What would be better than a contest?

APRIL/MAY FEATURE and UpdatesHello everyone! Its time for our "monthly" updates and feature!! I had to combine April and May due to life. I graduated and got a job a week later with short notice. Hopefully now that I am settled at work, I can keep up for the rest of the summer.APRIL/MAY FEATURE and Updates6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am writing up the rules and information on our upcoming contest and it will be posted by late June-early July. There will be both art and points prizes to be won!!
We are all a bit busy right now and sometimes we cannot vote on works in time and they occasionally expire. Please resubmit and write a comment mentioning that the work was previously expired. That will get our attention. Please do not resubmit until the work is actually expired (which I believe is set to 7 days)!! It creates a lot of backlog for other submissions and we may decline for a double submission by mistake.
Please bring any concerns or suggestions up on this blog
Jin Attempts To Explain Cosplay Photography As requested by many of you, I've submitted this guide as a dA news article. Here is the link. I'm happy this proved to be useful for a lot of you guys! It's the least I can do to give a little something back for your appreciation of our work. Thank you!Jin Attempts To Explain Cosplay Photography7 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, let me warn you that by the end of this journal entry, you may find yourself sick of my face. (If you aren't already.) I'll be using mostly myself as an example for the things I'm going to discuss, because I'm the only person I can poke fun at without restrictions.
I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li
The Effectiveness of SimplicityI like to draw and look at rather complex works of illustration. Perpectiveful pinnacles of technical achievement, etc. However, I watch a good number of artists who use simplicity to great effect. Whether it be representing more complex objects and figures as simpler forms, or just a philosophy of "less is more," I can easily be just as impressed (if not more so) with the understanding and implementation of simplicity as I get with more complex works.The Effectiveness of Simplicity1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Here's a short feature of some examples of works I've seen recently that got me good. Enjoy!
This work by radsechrist looks complex (such as the third image which I'll be talking about a bit here,) and to an extent it is -- however upon closer inspection, the actual details and construction is quite simplified, even crude. And it's fantastic. The artist shows such a vast understanding of how and where to place detail that matters,
Something about dedication in drawing improvementUPDATED: 2013/11/02 Added 1 personal suggestion at the bottom...Something about dedication in drawing improvement1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Couple of days ago I came across a series of notes & quotes made my various Japanese artists on how to improve drawing. This was not really an article per say but more of cut & paste collection from different source, so the artists had very different background varying from manga-ka, animators & illustrators (including general illustration). While some of them did have specific approach in development, majority of them had 1 thing in common. Which is to weight the practice in quantity, in other word "draw as much as you can".
To me this was rather obvious cause I some what went through this practice earlier in my as I became so called "Artist". (Well that's what people call me and not what I personally feel...) Although the difference is that initially I didn't do it because I wanted to improvement but I just picked up pencil because I like drawing. But in any case their was couple of

Pin Up Week: How to achieve Pin Up HairstylesA large part of pin-up photography is based on the models hair style, so I pass the Pin Up Week reigns over to my better half sodalicious as she educates us all on how to achieve a few basic pin up hairstyles....Pin Up Week: How to achieve Pin Up Hairstyles7 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In recognition of Pin-Up Week, here are several retro hairstyles along with a How To for each. So if you've ever wanted to achieve the perfect pomp, rockin' rolls, or the classic beehive, take note!
First I will write about the assorted instruments & hair utensils you may need to attain all three looks. Depending on the look you want, you'll need: bobby pins [LOTS of them!], hair rollers, hairspray, rat tail comb, pomade, curling iron, soft-bristled brush, and hair accessories [clip-in flowers, bandana, etc].
Hair rolls are what most people think of when they think of the vintage 1940s hair styles. If your hair is at least shoulder length, you can achieve rolls! Give it a try - it takes some time to dry your

Wouldn't it be nice if we could achieve the goals that we are working towards more quickly?
The world is speeding up all around us, and thankfully we're able to speed up as well and get more of what we want in less time. Here's some tips that will help you become the artist that you want to be more quickly.
Don't make mistakes - gain experience...
When you are learning if you think too critically of your work it may cause your brain some discomfort. The brain likes to succeed so when you don't quite get the results that you were aiming for, with the wrong attitude it can cause you some distress. Instead of looking at these attempts as 'failures,' you should see them always as opportunities to grow and gain experience.
The problem with looking at a work as a 'failure' is that it won't be too long u

Design an Outfit! Contest
Someone once said there was a huge wardrobe in Fenrir's Tower. Much bigger than any ever imagined, with many different- and sometimes eccentric- clothes for men, women, children. There was no purpose in having all those clothes, if not for satisfying his obsession of collecting things.
This contest is about designing a new outfit for my character, Lilith, and Fenrir--the-2nd's character Fenrir! Read about them in these refs and pull out of that huge wardrobe their new clothes!

So it's been a while since I've done a strictly food driven challenge, and I felt that you would all need a warm up before I announced a certain BIG challenge... hint hint... that being said, you're spotlight challenge is to select up to three of the inspiring images below and design a three look mini collection. One look should be business wear, a casual wear look and an evening look. Your inspirations for this months spotlight challenge are all Vegan dishes. Take from their origins. Their ingredients. The region of the dish.
You don't have to use three inspirations but you must link to which ever one(s) you chose.
