Mega Man Tribute gets a MEGA thumbs up!Mega Man Tribute gets a MEGA thumbs up!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A friend of UDON recently passed on a copy of our MEGA MAN TRIBUTE art book to video game designer AK, who had some great things to say about the book. For those who haven't heard of AK, he played a vital role in the original creation of Mega Man's world and systems, working on the game even before Keiji Inafune joined the project.
AK has graciously give us permission to pass his comments to the artists and fans of the book, which is a real treat as he has very rarely given public comments or done any press at all. The UDON crew is proud to share these accolades with all the great artists in Mega Man Tribute:

Advice on becoming a better artistI get asked by a lot of younger artists (and moms and grandmothers) for advice on getting better and becoming a professional comic artist. Hopefully this will help. Ask me more questions if I'm not clear enough and I'll try to post more about what I think makes a good artist and how to become a professional in the comic industry.Advice on becoming a better artist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you're not already aware, I'm a self-taught artist with little to no schooling on the subject. I thought I knew how to draw when I was a kid and I thought that drawing from shapes and building your characters out of forms was stupid. I don't know what the proper term for this is so I'm going to refer to it as construction drawing or under drawing throughout this post. My parents had purchased me some how to draw books, I also went to art class, and both of these tried to get me to use construction drawing techniques. Unfortunately I didn't understand the value of it and thus rejected it. I didn't need to build a tiger out of blocks, circles,
What's the Matter with Me? XDI was so tired from studying last night that today at school I actually fell asleep while standing up at the same time. x.x And I had a dream that Jesus was a ninja and he flipped around building tops throwing cross-shaped shurikens. Yes... I was definitely tired... XDWhat's the Matter with Me? XD1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Don't you dare not try at all because you think you don't have the skills necessary to make it work the first time.
Do your absolute best in everything you do, and don't you ever let anybody tell you to give up on your dream because it's "too hard."
How could you possibly know whether you're good enough in your talent as you are now, as you're reading this now, if you let people tell you what you can and can't do and then never actually try to pursue it?
Your life is your life. Your dream is your dream. No one can take that away from you and no one can keep you from it. Your gifts were given to you for a reason, and you have every right to take full advantage of them.
Keep your head up high. Believe in yourself and don't let anyone stop you. I have every confidence in you that you can make it. Make yourself proud and make me proud.

Anthony Holden is a professional artist/animator in the US and is just plain fun. His work is light-hearted, charming, and full of character. He's a dad alongside his professional art career, so he does a lot of "life journal" style illustrations and comics (usually animated) about recent life events or happenings along the way. Elsewhere, his work just makes me smile and laugh.

KICKSTARTER, VERKAMI, INDIEGOGO....
This is an example of what I would like to do; Many of you have already read about it, and gave me your support. I'm telling it again.
I'M SERIOUSLY THINKING ON TO START A CROWDFUNDING
This is it. I want to start a crowdfunding project. I am looking for good printing and shipping prizes that offers me good quality. I'm waiting for an answer from a very cool guy I have meet who is going to help me.
I think that my crowdfunding project will be an artbook. But I don't want to stay just there. I mean, the most important thing is that I want to enjoy every page I fill. Every line I do and every color I choose.
If I don't feel I'm spending a good time doing this, I should not do it. And this kind of mentallity is what makes me want to do this. Spending a super good time, and have one of the better experiences in m
Spirit Day, 2013Warning: Serious topic ahead (oh my!)Spirit Day, 20131 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don't usually make journals like this, but the issues surrounding Spirit Day are important to me, so I feel like I should support the day in some way, even if it's just to write a journal.
For those who don't know, Spirit Day is a day where you wear purple, IRL or online, in order to show support and solidarity to the victims of bullying. This goes for all bullying, of course, but the day was originally started as a response to the high rates of suicide among LGBTQ teens.
LGBTQ = Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer
I'm not here to debate about how much good this "Go Purple" day actually does; I'm not here to hear people complain about the fact that this day exists, or that the LGBTQ community exists. I don't care about your opinion on the matter, and I don't care to give mine, either.
I just wanted to write something supportive, so that's what I'm gonna do.

People need to realize this is no place for hate!This is an ART community! Not a place where you can come and bully others!People need to realize this is no place for hate!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Do you guys know how many times I've seen things about giving up? Giving up art, giving up anime, even giving up on life! These are not good things to see! And why is it? A lot of reasons, but the one that comes up most is bullying.
THIS IS NOT A SITE FOR BULLYING PEOPLE SO STRAIGHTEN UP!!!
I am sick and tired of seeing my friends on here get hurt! I'm tired of seeing them sad and depressed! And a lot of it is because people use this site JUST TO BULLY OTHER PEOPLE. THOSE PEOPLE NEED TO GROW UP.
That is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR! And it needs to STOP. Not just here, but in the real world, too!
And for those of you being bullied or that are in pain, you can talk to me. I go to counseling twice a week, so I might can suggest some things that will help, including counseling. I know it's hard to think rationally when you're upset. Try tapping your hands on your lap in a steady rhythm of left, right, left, right,

Important Announcement!I'll start by saying that the last couple weeks have been pretty rough for me. Aside from work and my week-long vacation, there's also been a lot of personal BS keeping me from doing what I love (i.e. drawing comics). I won't go into detail, but I did want to reassure you that my motivation is still alive and strong--I just can't seem to catch a break to stop and draw. While this is just a temporary bump in the road, it did make me realize that it's finally time for a change.Important Announcement!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Starting with Episode 19, I'm going to rethink the way I do comic pages. Now, don't think that means that there's going to be a drop in quality--I'm just going to be experimenting with some more efficient techniques that will most likely change the way the pages are presented (like using a shadow layer instead of manually coloring in shadow, thinner lines, simpler speech bubbles, etc.). Honestly, this change was long overdue, and hopefully this will actually make the pages look better and won't come across

Harley Quinn Contest
In case you haven't heard yet, DC is holding a contest to hire fresh young artists to help work on the new Harley Quinn series. http://www.dccomics.com/node/305151 This is fantastic news for a lot of artists, as "breaking in" to the big comic book companies can be extraordinarily difficult to do and this helps level the playing field. However, the way they've chosen to hold the contest is to have everyone submit 4 illustrations based on 4 separate scripts... all of which depict Harley Quinn as suicidal and trying to kill herself "comically."
Now first off, I get the fact that Harley Quinn is part of the "Suicide Squad," and that these illustrations are likely poking fun at that. However I feel that fact falls on it's face since the term "Suicide Squa

So, first off I'd like to say thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! All 50+ of you who commented on my profile, booped me on Skype and pounced on me in Livestream. I feel very loved x3 I had a good day yesterday hanging out with my family and catching up on Game of Thrones~<3
(Not at the same time, obviously- you know why that's a bad idea). :iconohohoplz:
Anyway- in case anyone's interested I mostly just got money (as a boring adult does), and a few books (which I was nerdily happy about). But I'd also like to thank my bff for sending me a present all the way from Amurrica <3 AND PEOPLE DREW ME THINGS. GUYS. I am so happy; I always get really stupidly excited when people draw things for me and I really didn't expect anything other than a few people who told me they were drawing me something in advance ;v; You should go check them out.

Full Illustration Giveaway! Winner!:iconraika-chan:Full Illustration Giveaway! Winner!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hey everyone! So I've been itching to work with some new characters and another full illustration project, so I thought I'd do a giveaway!
So first off, what is a full illustration?
What I mean by a full illustration is an image that uses additional effects besides the typical shading and highlighting I use on standard commissions and images.
This often means dramatic or darker lighting that ties the image together with a background to round out the image. In other cases it can be a way to showcase powers, abilities, or anything unique about a character or to emphasize personality or character relationships.
In general these are meant to not just showcase the character but to emphasize a part, or many parts, of their story and self.
With these, a lot of extra attention is given and a lot more time is given to making sure the emotion, m
