Thank You!Thank you guys so much for the deviousness award! But it's really not just this award, thank you all for the support through out the years.
I can honestly say that I grew up with this community and everyone here has taught me so much, and not just about art, but also on how to be a person. When I first got this account at the age of 12, I could have never imagined how much it has shaped my life and career. It sounds cliche but I probably wouldn't have became an artist if it hadn't been for everyone here on deviantART. Through all of the ups and downs in life, the community has always been the support and inspiration that kept me going.
I hope to give back as much as everyone has given me. I will continue to create more comics, tutorials and art in the future. I will never stop, and I have you all to thank for that.
So truly, thank you!
See you at Anime Destiny!Hey guys!See you at Anime Destiny!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
This is will be the last con of the year for me, and what better way to end it than at the con held by my very own university I'll be at the annual Anime Destiny convention this November 16 at the Clark Kerr Conference Center at UC Berkeley, CA. As usual, I'll be in the Artist Alley with prints and books.
This year the Artist Alley will be in the Krutch Theatre due to construction of the usual location. Anime Destiny is a small con, but it's also one of my favorites because I get to see a lot of my old Berkeley friends there, and meet news ones as well. If you live in the bay area, come by and hang out!

Fisheye Placebo ImagesI saw this awesome Fisheye Placebo music video by Linda Neumann and realized that it would probably be easier for music video editors and language translators to have a textless version of all of the panels so here it is https://www.dropbox.com/sh/84jcondrsylfh82/pVEbp8d1QqFisheye Placebo Images1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Feel free to download the images for any class projects, music videos, translations, etc. Please credit and remember that I drew these for everyone to read for free, so do not try to sell or profit from my work in anyway. If I find people charging others for translated versions of this story, or selling copies of my work, I will be very angry ):
That aside, check out the cool video! She did a wonderful job editing everything

Manga character design classsssssNEWS ITEM: I have a character design class launching on Skillshare.com this month! I am often asked about running drawing workshops, and sometimes I'm able to do them, and sometimes I'm not (work! travel! stuff! fear of public speaking!). And I certainly can't run them in many places, because countries are big/teleporting not invented yet/really, 21st century, really, not even a flying car come on... LUCKILY THERE IS THE INTERNET. So I took the high points of the stuff I usually teach in my character drawing workshops and arranged them as video tutorials, for those interested! They will become available later this month, but sign-up is already open here: http://skl.sh/1gVYhH1Manga character design classsssss1 month ago in Personal More Like This

You were always content with living a boring- but safe- life. It had nothing to do with your parents, or so you’d always tell yourself, it was just the way you wanted to live your life.
You drove a large-ish car, but you always said that was because it got good mileage and you liked how it drove, you lived in an apartment complex that wouldn’t even let you into the lobby unless you had a key, but you told yourself that you picked it because it was near your job and was affordable- which it wasn’t. You worked a no-risk job where you wouldn’t have to fear promotion or conflict, you didn’t make enemies (yet you didn’t have many friends), and you spent most of your free time alone in your apartment,
So when you opened your apartment’s door to find a man climbing in through your fourth floor window, you weren’t actually sure how to react. The most appropriate response seemed to be to scream, though, so

It was winter right now and you were in some kind of forest. You didn't know where, but you knew for certain it had to be on the mainland. The soiled, torn clothes you were wearing did little to protect you from the bitter cold, and you didn't even have gloves. By now you couldn't feel your fingers anymore and you could've sworn they were turning blue.
After plunging through the heavy snow a few more steps, your body couldn't take it anymore. You fell face first into the snow and made no effort to get up, or even to turn yourself over onto your back. Not only did your body refuse to move, but your mind couldn't come up with anymore optimistic thoughts either.
'So this is how it ends.' you thought to yourself.
The falling snow would eventually cover up your whole body and the spot where you currently laid motionless would become your grave. At least you h

GDA PE Week 2013 Day 3So I'm swapping the order of things, today will be intro to some programs for game development. Art features, a bit of Q/A (possibly) and some fun stuff will be tomorrow and friday!GDA PE Week 2013 Day 32 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The tools of the trade
Is a massive list, I mean massive. There are so many programs you can use to achieve the art you want for Game Development, it can be overwhelming to narrow it down on some you think you'd be good at using. or excel at learning. Keep one thing in mind when it comes to choosing a program to use: It's just a tool.
Period. The tool doesn't make the artist, it never has. We've seen remarkable work come from the most unlikely places and why should Game Dev. art be any different in that regard?
You'll find people get into battles a lot claiming the tool they use is the best for what they are doing, but that's just it: it is best for them. It may not be what you like, but that doesn't mean you're wrong or you can't achieve similar results. So

Did you know ?
Did you know that the Game Development category is for original work only? It's not for fan-art of pre-existing games, nor is it for screenshots of your favourite games that you are playing. The only time there's an exception is if you worked for that game studio on that game and some content in the piece you are posting is partly your work. Partly the reason why Game Development Art got put into a sub category was because many people were miss understanding the purpose of the category entirely thinking it was for Video game artwork o

Get to know your game development groups
Yup, there are groups that help support game development. One of the very first groups for this was :icongame-art: . It specifically ties into the game development art category because it was founded around the same time it's founder became a CV themselves. A lot of the rules for the group are the same rules for the category on Deviant Art itself. The group's former founder, :iconpyritie: works for a game company as a programmer and was at one point a CV for the category. The current founder, :icondkdevil: , is also a game developer working alongside a programmer to make a game called Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme which you can read more about here -> http://www.indiedb.com/games/gender-bender-dna-twister-extreme
The group features galleries that our broken down similar to how we have the category setup.

What you may not have known about Game Development Art
It not only means video games, but also online games, board games, etc. Games like "dungeons and dragons" unless specific to actual characters you see in the books (those would go under fan-art) would classify as game art if it's your campaign character. Or a board game you are making would also be classified as game development art, or pen and paper, etc. Something I find a lot of members don't realize. What is also neat is that 3D game art can also be your 3D figurines made/used for your board game (as long as it's YOUR copyrighted board game, and not a figurine made for someone else's copyrighted board game unless given 100% permission).
Saturday's article will go more in depth with this but just to give a brief overview
