Dreamy Theodor KittelsenAs I've previously promised, after the articles about Sulamith Wülfing and about John Bauer, the time comes for an article about Theodor Kittelsen.Dreamy Theodor Kittelsen3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
...Theodor Severin Kittelsen, being a great representant of the Golden Age of Illustration, is one of the countless artists who received more attention and appreciation a long time after their death. I don't say "proper attention", it's still far from it.
His depictions of Scandinavian folklore creatures are said to be equally cannon to the trolls portrayed by the definitely more famous John Bauer. But, unlike Bauer, Kittelsen didn't focus just around trolls (which are, you must admit that, most of Bauer's creations - although his sudden death at young age is

I have received so many amazing entries that I have no idea how I'll pick a top three! It's gonna be tough, but I'll get on it ASAP, and aim to reveal the results by tomorrow (Sep 29th) at the latest!
Good luck everyone, and by giving such great entries has made my birthday amazing!
I will replace my drawing of Chari on my profile with a version with the winning outfit, so the winner will be featured on my profile too!
I may also add a few runner up prizes, because oh my, I love so many of these entries! It won't be much, but maybe like 100pts for a few people
So yeah, I'll get onto commenting on your entries soon, and will try and figure out my top three. Definitely gonna be hard, but look out for a journal with the results on soon!

CONTEST OVER-- NO MORE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED
UPDATE 10/29: We're still waiting on one judge's results in order for the winners to be announced. Right now, there are about 8 entries tied for 2nd place, so this last judge's results are very important for determining the winners. Winners will be announced NOVEMBER 7TH, as the judge plans to have all entries scored by then. Thank you for your patience! We're excited to see who wins, as well!
We thank everyone who participated and submitted an entry for this contest! Honestly, it was a much bigger turn-out than I thought it would be and every single one of the entries are gorgeous. It's going to be so hard voting for the 3 winners-- you all deserve to win! Truthfully! I will be gathering the entries and sending them to the judges shortly and we hope to have the results posted within the next few days (as well as the raffle winner). Stay posted, and thank

12/09/3023 - Little delay until the 16/09 10H AM (Paris, french hour) since one of my advice helper will not begin to see each entry before monday, AND that some of you are rushing to end your participation (there is a few!), it does not disturb me more than that to let you benefit of this delay.
For those who begin something before the dead-line (friday) only (and/or having telling me about)! The contest will be officially closed tomorrow, as I've saying.
06/09/2013 - Last update! The prizes ARE INCREASING! Since I received 32 drawings from 27 participants! There is still 32 people who said they would made something, and about 43 people who show an interest by faving my contest! (So it means that more of 100 people were interesting! It's incred

Scott Westerfeld himself has been kind enough to mention Dalek Week on the westerblog and said he can't wait to feature some of the week's winners in one of his posts!
If anyone is coming here from the blog and is unfamiliar with deviantArt but would like to participate, signing up to the site is easy and becoming a member of the group is even easier If you need any help feel free to leave a comment and one of the founders would be happy to direct you.
That being said, there are only two weeks until Day 1 of Dalek Week! If you haven't even started thinking about what you'd like to draw/write/etc, now would be a good time to start! If you're starting to sketch out some rough drafts or scrawl out some dialogue by now, even better. Best of luck to everyone!
Dalek Week 2012 Themes:
DAY 1: Parents
DAY 2: Roaring 20s

La CQ ofende o habla bien de los adolescentes?que hay, una vez mas con una critica u opinión rara XDLa CQ ofende o habla bien de los adolescentes?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Últimamente he visto muchas series con actores adolescentes y prácticamente todos son lo mismo: protagonistas que son entre los menos populares, que son los arraigados o que son los perdedores que quieren ser populares; los populares son los ricos, porristas, presidentes de la escuela, los malos y/o que odian siempre al protagonista; los bullyng son de los populares o los que visten de rufián con el cliché de hacer maldades, insultar o golpear; los nerds son los que usan lentes, con granos y risa estúpida; y siempre, siempre... la chica mas linda de la escuela tiene estos dos papeles a escoger, 1 ser la mas dulce caritativa chica popular con alma de ángel o 2 ser una perra (para no decir put&) millonaria popular mandona de la escuela (y eso le va también para el chico pero no se le dice perro, sino perra también)
No han visto que ninguna serie a cambiado esos o romper esos cliches para ver como son los adolescentes actuales?

I Made a New Tutorial!Stuff I SayI Made a New Tutorial!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I made a tutorial based on the process from the gator dragon I posted yesterday. It covers a technique to make it easier than ever to paint complex scales and patterns without screwing up your values and lighting. Not only do you get a 1 hour and 40 minute fully narrated 1080p video, but it comes with other goodies like brushes and a psd of the image. All of that for only $3. If you guys like it let me know and maybe I'll make more tutorials on other subjects. Go check it out here and here for paypal customers.

Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

"I wondered if there should be a portion dedicated to people- students etc who are completely unknown, who just want to get a foot in the door.
Working for free is the answer. You might balk at this because some critics say this gives the appearance that there is NO value to skill and talent. However- consider this: Working for free gives you amazing experience. It allows you to practice on someone else's project, see your work in print, establish a reputation and learn- big time. People who won't work for free WILL pay for a course! What better learning experience is there than to work with a client- such as a library or an independent book store or a school- producing poste

Herro! BIG news http://cubebrush.com/ is LIVE!
We've put so much work into this its a surreal feeling to finally see it online. It's been months and months of hard work and while there is still much to do to make sure it becomes THE destination for online art training, it's such a relief to finally put it out there for the public.
We did a big optimization pass this week and it should be running pretty smooth now, make sure you check it out and give me your feedback so I can relay it to the devs.
It'll be in beta for the next couple weeks to make sure we get as much feedback as possible and make it awesome for the users.
Again, don't hesitate to contact me with bugs and/or suggestions!!
We have an incredible line up of artists who are working on master lessons to come out in the coming months and we'll be constantl
