Back in action with a couple of EventsHello everyone, Sorry for the long long Hiatus, had quite a few things to sort out before today. with the new year and all the late work I had to finish, I'm still behind with some commissions but hopefully with my new daily schedule set up, i will catch up on those as well, so if you are on such a list and been waiting for a long while, please give me just a bit more time, i will catch up on these late work. @__@Back in action with a couple of Events1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I started a daily monster sketch, so hopefully this will help make up for my lack of action for the past months. please feel free to join in on this excercise as well, i care less about the quality about these works, the important thing for me is keep doing one each day, hopefully to do this for a whole year. =] I think it will be a big dedication and accomplishment. =]
another Event i want to start is a contest of sorts, which would have two parts. the first part would be asking you to submit your original character for a random selection, this can be an image or description

Last week, my family made a very hard decision.
Our 15-year-old beagle had lost the ability to walk on his own, began refusing food, and water. All within a week. We made that decision that we were dreading so much, after finally realizing what it would’ve meant for him if we had kept him home, lying on a blanket, day-after-day, We had to make that decision; the one that we were dreading for so long.
We saw it in his eyes. He wanted to get up, run, and howl into the fresh air, and dig up some tasty
cat poopfood. As he was, he couldn’t do any of that.
We took him to the vet, and had him put to sleep. It was painful, but having him suffer at home would have been worse.
He had always right behind someone, always quick to steal the oth

2. the winner's full name will be in the credits.
3. This character will be copyrighted primarily to this game, you are allowed to use the artwork for your portfolio, but may be a bit complicated if you want to sell him/her off to a new client. Details of copyright can be discussed with the winner.

Update on Serge and appreciation features.Update on Serge and appreciation features.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, let me say that is has been one week since Serge was hospitalized for his biopsy. Since then he received 3 intravenous treatments. He is now on anti-rejection drug therapy including the ones he takes regularly and some additional ones. He will be taking a combination of these medications for several weeks. He is home now, and will only be going back to Vancouver for check ups until he is fully recovered from the rejection issue.
I am happy to report that there is significant improvement with the latest tests. Serge went back to Vancouver yesterday and the transplant team doctors are very pleased with his progress so far. He is on his way to recovery. Still there is going to be some time before he is at that same spot where he was before the acute rejection, but the good news is that it is not chro

Sick and tired of 9gag theft[Update: After 13 Days, they finally removed the image. ]Sick and tired of 9gag theft11 months ago in Personal More Like This
a new Mini Comic sadly means, more theft over on 9gag. Like clockwork, someone stole the most recent one and reposted it here within minutes.
I have had every single Mini Comic stolen so far without fail, and I feel that now I am forced to use more prominent and ugly watermarks in the future.
In general I don't mind when people share my art, as long as 1. no money is earned through the post (9gag makes about $13k a day through ad revenue with traffic generated by stolen material) 2. watermarks are not removed and people can find the source 3. people ask beforehand.
I have a Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, so on those sites I post most of my art anyway which people can simply retweet, reblog and share.
So far, 9ga
MILK (online manga) posted!!So I have good news!! And bad news.. LOL;;MILK (online manga) posted!!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
The prologue of my original manga is complete and up online, [HERE]
MILK★ is about idol groups in the year 2275, and the culture and conspiracies that surround them. It's a very sci-fi setting, with cute girls and dystopian concepts (which I lllllllove ahhahaha) ~~ I love cute happy things that make me smile.. but I also love UNDER-LYING SECRET FUCKING WEIRD CONCEPTS *____* (what have I become)
Uhm, unfortunately, for the bad news.. OTL|||
MILK isn't something that I can keep doing as a manga format. :c (At least, not for now)
I did this prologue mainly as a personal goal to see how I could do and what I could do with it. I loved making it, but it is just too much work for not enough reward u___u Maybe when I have a stable income it's something I could tackle. Actually, I would love that. >o<' But until fu

Great Portfolio is greater than College DiplomaGreat Portfolio is greater than College Degree.Great Portfolio is greater than College Diploma2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Of Course, I’m not exposed to every school in the world but from my general knowledge, personal experience and some basic logic: School is way too expensive to attend, especially if it takes you years later to get a decent job after graduation.
Here are three reasons why I’m not happy with most, not all, colleges in america. Especially for artists.
IT COSTS WAY TOO MUCH MONEY! I hear now that some art schools are charging $30,000 a year, for three years. That’s $90,000 of debt. Most professionals in my field of concept art don’t make that in a yearly salary. It’s more expensive than some medical schools and that’s becoming a doctor of some sort. So why is it so expensive? Doesn't matter, it just is.
Think about it this way. You are about to invest almost a tenth of a million dollars for the promise of being a capable person in the industry. But by the end, all you get is a piece of paper and a

Sipping tea with your Muse Only by fostering a facility with the vocabulary of your artistic medium of choice, can you begin to really free yourself to be open to being creative with it.Sipping tea with your Muse3 months ago in Personal More Like This
The size of that vocabulary is another matter, and that’s about growth, improvement and development. These are important as well, and intricately linked to creativity, in parallel (more on that in a future article). But first let’s talk simply about the genesis aspect of art.
Remember when you were in high school, doodling in the margins of your notebooks? Ballpoint pen and edges of blue-lined notebooks, with half an ear listening to the lesson of the day? There was a familiarity in that setting, and ease that you moved through when you sketched these throwaway doodles. Every once in a while you’d accidentally make one that you’d really like, and you’d save that scrap of paper with notes on American History melding into the lines of a drawing of your D&D charac

Getting DeviantArt pointsJust a short journal to answer one of the questions that I get a lot.Getting DeviantArt points6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First of all, it's important to know what exactly are DeviantArt points?
DeviantArt points are a currency that is used on DeviantArt alone. In this website, you can buy points, you can get them, collect them, and buy things for them. It's basically the DeviantArt equivalent to money. Which might come in useful because even for those that don't have a credit card or Paypal account, it is now possible to get a premium membership. Points can be either bought, or gotten for free from other members. There are many ways to get them. I will list a few here.
Most obvious one: Buy them for money. You need credit card or Paypal, though.
Trade them for llama's. your-username.deviantart.com/badges/ will list people that'll trade llama's for point on the right side. Give that person a llama, and you'll get some points. It's
