CT WIPs - Here They Come Just In TimeA couple of things: GIMP lags on me now which makes it a pain on me and my laptop to record process videos. And since tumblr has a following size that's a third of my dA, a lot of people may be missing my WIP shots. So I hope it won't bother anyone that I make and update journals that show my process. I hope you'll find them interesting and inspiring. And also, I hope people will stop asking me what program I work in lol on top of the fact that it's listed in my interests under Tools of the Trade, I've also had a FAQ made so please check those before asking questions. Further info about my process will be located under each WIP shot!CT WIPs - Here They Come Just In Time2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Soul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!So today I received a treat in my facebook inbox from old colleague and now-kickass GW artist, Kevin "Kingmong" Chin: http://www.blacklibrary.com/Blog/Art_and_Soul.htmlSoul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Right now, I'm still awaiting a response from the Black Librarians to see if I am allowed to post some higher-res versions of my 3 Soul Drinkers covers here on DA. Till then, this is all they have up on their blog and all I have to show for, for now! For you Soul Drinkers fans out there, I was told not to reference any notable characters of the SD lore and come up with my own designs.
The general brief for the 3 covers was to have a tactical space marine, a captain, and lastly a dreadnought (being awoken). I thought it would be a neat idea to compose all the covers from a similar worms eye angle, not just for theatrics but rather to literally show the life cycle of a Space Marine as he fights and rises through the ranks, leading his brethren and eventually being entombed within a dreadnought to continue his tireless fig
Perfect commission processI commissioned a lot of artists (more than 50) and some of them didn't follow a commission process and only sent the final image after asking for an upfront payment.Perfect commission process2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I won't commission this kind of artists in the future, because I have no guaranty that the artist will deliver a drawing corresponding to client wishes and I had bad experiences in some cases.
Below, I'll use client for the commissioner and artist for the commissioned artist.
For me, the perfect commission process steps should be :
client sends a note or an email to an artist with all details and references about commission
artist should reply quickly (1 or 2 days after received the message, if he's available), accept or refuse commission, and give a price for the commission
client should reply if the price is fine for him (but he shouldn't bargain)
artist should give an estimated delay before starting to work, if he has a waiting list, put the commission in it
once artist is ready

Catwoman Costume Making ArticleCatwoman Costume Making Article1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I finally get to translate article about my “Batman Returns” Catwoman costume. And just right time for Halloween x)
I'm very sorry if there are mistakes in the text! And I'm sorry that there are no wip photos, I did not make them, unfortunatelly. But in this article I tried to upload the materials, that helped me to make my own costume.
<cut> Well, first of all few words about why I chose this version. I’m a cat person, I always had cats at home and I love them very much. So it’s not a surprise that I also love such an amazing character as Catwoman. And my first meeting with her happened, when I was a child thanks to Tim Burton’s movie “Batman Returns”. I was amazed by Michelle Pfeiffer’s acting and since then her Selina Kyle is the only one for me. She’s beautiful, dangerous and a little crazy, exactly how Catwoman should be. I alw

I didn't loathe at myself wishing that I could "draw feet" when working on a piece at the spot where I have to draw feet on the picture.
I didn't go to further schooling to let someone hand me a piece of paper on their own terms and timeframe telling me if I'm "capable of art" or not.
I took things into my own hands.
A couple of common phrases to make to artists who are (of the person who believes that they're) "inexplicably too good" that annoy me are:
"Ugh, I really wish I had your talent. Why are you so good!?"
"You're so lucky. I wish I could do what you do".
"I could never pull this off the way you pull it off."
Now, I understand that there are certain levels of aptitudes and paces that different people learn by, so don't get the idea of this entry wrong. But, really, let me make an illustration here:

So let me share it here, all of the scale kits I own here were the one that Ive already modeled in 3d as my artworks. Some are in my future to do list as well
Scale kits helps me to study an aircraft shapes while doing some modeling.. (some brands do have a bad accuracy thou..) but mostly their fuselage and wings area quite OK.
The first one is my Academy Su-30MK2 TNI AU 1/48 with a custom hand made model from (clay?) such as wingtip and stabilizers and custom decals too!
This model a fair accuracy.

OMG! I just came to think about about something that might suck for some of you!
Some people supports my theory about the game "Hyrule Warriors" being a side game based on the "Skyward Sword Manga" (an I appreciate that!).
If this is true and both the game and the manga share the same concept.... Does that means that both also will share the same ending?
If it will I would go to my room, lock the door and cry like a baby until the official game release!!!
STOP! If you haven't read the manga yet... Pretty please leave this page and go read it!

Yes, I'm late, but it's never too late for talking about Star Wars!
#23 Movie of the Week is...
Star Wars is an American epic space opera franchise centered on a film series created by George Lucas. The franchise depicts a galaxy described as "far, far away" in the distant past, and portrays Jedi as a representation of good, in conflict with the Sith, their evil counterpart. Their weapon of choice, the lightsaber, is commonly recognized in popular culture. The franchise's storylines contain many themes, with influences from philosophy and religion.
I'm not gonna write more about it, because you all should know that! Everyone loves Star Wars! this post could be too long if I'd like to write more of it, 'cause there are lots of your stuffs! I'm glad of this!
