Why I Draw Women OftenI recently got a message, and I will slightly reword it so as not to cause profane friction, nor will I state who it came from, but it read like this: "Why is everything you post regarding a woman? I think it's very sexist when the only thing you can draw are breasts and buttocks like it's the only thing in the world."Why I Draw Women Often3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so by now, if you haven't been watching me for a good minute, you know that I really like to draw women, and I like portraying the female form, usually and often in a tasteful manner. I could hypothetically end that question there and just answer "I wasn't aware everything in my gallery was a woman or had breasts and a butt" and then post a picture or two of Rai Rivet... But I'm not going to do that. I'm going to explain my stance on drawing the female form and my adoration for it.

Had the Urge... to write this because I'm getting repeated questions that are pretty much along the same lines and rather than direct each one to my FAQ, I have a different way to answer the question, which is basically:Had the Urge...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Why am I not getting anywhere in my art? What can I do to get better? No one is liking my work, how can I get more people to like my work so they can pay me?"
The real question you should be asking yourselves is:
"Why am I drawing?"
I mean, I take a look all the time at people who may not be skilled or whatever, and I'm sure they don't feel the best about their work (or they may), but they always have something to say that made them feel good while drawing it. Saw a sunset beach picture earlier that someone drew/painted and of course, it's not professional-looking at all. What ringed to me was the fact that in their comments, they said they "enjoyed it and was a relaxing piece". Not complaining about how the sand looks too crappy or the colors in the s

I'm Not A Social Butterfly......well, anymore. But I'm not an introvert, either.I'm Not A Social Butterfly...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most of my IRL close acquaintances and friends always ask me "Rob, why you work so much? Why don't you go out with us like you used to?" "Man, we used to hoop all the time dude, when are we getting back to the court?"
My response usually consists of "I... just got things to do." And I do. I'm practically at the computer almost 18 hours a day, hacking away at the game. When my wife gets home, I spend a couple hours with her until she goes to sleep, and then I finish up whatever work until I hit the sack.
Then they'd be the ones to go on how much they hate their job. Actually, its pretty funny: One of my closest dudes has an artistic background in music. He could be killing it in the indie scene even; he's a very talented dude. But man, he's dealing with chick-o-drama, always spending his free time (now on GTA5) playing games or going to the bar, and then have the audacity to go on how much he hate his jo

It seeks to find deserving indie-mangakas on the 'Net and reward them. Up to 30 ongoing series are displayed on their website (link provided below).**The Global Manga Initiative**2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Each year, the Best of G.M.I. Awards are held and the top 3 mangakas are given a monetary reward. They are determined by a nomination-voting system where you, the viewers, vote for who deserves it. The series that are displayed are cycled where the lower-ranking ones are replaced by those of newcomers. To qualify for these awards, you must have your work featured in the anthology, as well as have at least three full chapters in the year. The deadline for this year is December 19, 2013 when their final 2013 update takes place.
It offers creators free exposure/promotion of their works. If your work does become featured, you retain all the rights to your work and you have no obligation to them but to keep your

DON'T WORRY, THIS IS STILL BEING JUDGED.
The past couple weeks have just been hectic due to it being Valentine's and whatnot.
(Not to mention a couple of the people I need to get opinions from haven't been on due to their own reasons.)
Everything is set to be announced by the first week of March at the latest, however.
Thank you for your patience, and I apologise for the wait!
SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW, 100% CLOSED.
No more will be accepted from this point on.
Now comes the toughest part of all... judging. And it's going to be a difficult task indeed.
Unlike last times when I did all solely by myself, this time I will be getting some assistance from people I know who are also familiar with The Summoner, its premise/background and characters.
Final decisions will be mine, however...
I ask for everyone's patience in this, and it might not be until March that I'm able to find the time to finalise everything.

Collection: Alternative UniverseCollection: Alternative Universe9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”
Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin

*tak bardzo pro*
A więc, artblock.
Taka tak zwana choroba artysty, czyli kiedy lenistwo lub po prostu zwykła niechęć do rysowania bierze górę, lub nawet przerażenie brakiem rozwoju, co mi się zresztą często zdarza. Taki bezruch nie jest zdrowy dla naszego talentu mimo, że może się tak nam wydawać. To tak jak byście zostawili roślinkę bez podlewania na miesiąc czasu. Kaktus by przeżył, ale ty masz inny, ładny kwiatek który ciągle się rozwija i potrzebuje wody, opieki.

It's kind of hard to sum up a voyage in just a few words and I dont really feel like blabbling on - but I adored the city, the coffee shops and hostel a bit less! Haha~
Ended up riding bikes most the time there, my bum and legs hurt so much! Unfortunately I was sick for the whole week so I had pretty bad sleeps and was pretty tired, but it was still nice!
Although I did really love the City, I feel like I mostly enjoyed my Wednesday! Went to the Kröller-Müller Museum + The park surrounding it, and I found it just greaaat. I mean, I would go biking every day if I had a nice scenery to look at ok.
Anyway here are a few pictures <3!

Favourite Console of the GenerationHiya Ryceballs. You may have noticed recently I have been doing more videogame art lately despite how I said there would be more OC. There's a good reason for that, because I unexpectedly get to go to a video game convention this weekend to sell some art, so I decided to make more gaming related art to sell there. I am working on a Rycraft artwork as well so you can look forward to that! Anyways this got me thinking about games a lot, which console has what games that I liked, whether people know the games that I played? And which consoles I liked the most?? So I decided to split em into groups of generations. The Console Wars as they call it, has begun. Which was my favourite of the generation?

- You want to connect, you want to put your own DNA into the picture and connect.
-Vulnerability. Telling someone who you are. Honestly revealing parts of yourself sincerely. The key to animation is sincerity. Step beyond your walls and share as an artist.
- Animation is the ultimate art form. No other art form will challenge you as much as animation can.
- You always want to be restless, I always had one foot out the door at Disney.
- it is important to not hold back and share all you have to your fellow artists. Got to keep giving it out and trust me it'll pour right back in.
- Drawing is about feeling.
- Conveying an emotion of peacefulness is just trying to capture someone living in that moment.
