Ashcan Copy Comics?At conventions, Ashcan comics is, essentially, a "cheap print" comic. Traditionally, these are smaller, black and white copies of the comics you produce, to allow readers a free (or VERY cheap) comic to read, with the idea that they will become engaged in the story enough to purchase the colored version or future comics. These were often 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch pages, just printed on standard printing paper, and often done in short runs. Sometimes they had several pages per page, other times they were simply low quality.Ashcan Copy Comics?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's changed, to some extent, as many people now produce very high quality Ashcans, but with only 5 pages or so, which has been criticized. While it is true that higher quality, shorter comics can be great to show off the quality of your work, your art, and coloring, it does not usually allow readers to get engaged in the story.
What is your opinion on Ashcan comics?
Are they useful? We live in an age now where people not only expect instant gratification, they expect it
Bayonetta 2 Concept Arts******Concept Arts of 'Bayonetta 2' by Mari Shimazaki*****Bayonetta 2 Concept Arts1 year ago in Personal More Like This
''First, let’s talk about Bayonetta, the “modern witch”, and this game’s main character. Those who played the previous title are likely to notice that her trademark hairstyle has been given a complete makeover. After talking with Hashimoto and Kamiya, the three of us came to the conclusion Bayonetta’s not the kind of girl who’d show up with the same hairstyle for her sequel. A girl can be known to change her hairstyle depending on her mood, so I guess Bayonetta was in the mood for something short. Still, knowing her, there’s no telling when she’ll decide to change it again.
Bayonetta’s overall theme this time is “Solid.”
"She’s still wearing black, and I think her shorter hair gives her a generally more masculine look. While her design in the last game focused on curves, this time we see more straight lines. All of her accessories follow this, exc
Spongebob sucks now WE GET IT!You know, I'm really really tired of people bitching and moaning Spongebob you know why?

Getting started with digital artAs an artist that does digital art, I always get a lot of questions about what tablets people should use and how to make their choices. While I think equipment isn't all that matters, I think some things are good to take in consideration when buying a tablet. So here's something to get you started!Getting started with digital art2 weeks ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Why do I need a tablet? Can't I use a mouse instead?
The biggest reason; ergonomics. When you do a lot of computer work in general, it's better to use a tablet over a mouse. This is because a mouse isn't designed for precision work. It's putting too much pressure on muscles that are not intended for precision work, hence it raises your chances to get all kinds of nasty injury's. Even if you can draw just fine with a computer mouse, you might actually consider to start using a tablet, for the reason that

However, it's 2015 - a brand new year! Lots of cool things will be happening. 2015 will mark close to a 100 page mark aswell as a 1 year anniversary of UberQuest. We have alot of things planned for the comic this year - finally getting to much more meaty and intriguing parts of the story.It's been a rough road, learning everything from scratch. Alot has been revamped and/or completely redone in the story from it's initial conception. However, things are much more cohesive now and the narrative is flowing much better.
We are still striving for a 2 weekly updates and continuing to update our Ask UberCast tumblr blog (NSFW) - which has taken a bit of a hit recently as we've been so consumed with commissions and other things. We are also working on trying to get up more mer

so stop looking for excuses, stop trying to find reasons why it cant be done, start working on ways to get it done.

Yesterday, there was a kid about 4 years old or so. He was wearing a princess crown, had a princess wand, and his autograph
book was princesses, etc. There was a grown man teasing the boy about "being gay". A GROWN man.
Peter pan likes to hang around Adventureland Bridge and he stood by and saw what happened.
Not liking what he saw, ESPECIALLY from a grownup, he spoke up:
" Excuse me sir, but I'm going to give you some advice I NEVER tell anyone:Grow up."

The Sad Truth About Fanfictions and FandomsTruth be told, I was reluctant to write this journal, but felt like I had to. First and foremost, however, I want you to know that I have no intention of demoralizing anyone, and I’m by no means a great writer. But there are certain things regarding fandoms and fanfictions in general you must understand.The Sad Truth About Fanfictions and Fandoms2 months ago in Personal More Like This
The majority of fanfiction readers are biased – it’s an indisputable fact.
I have seen a good amount of people here on deviantart who are amazing writers, and yet, they don’t get the attention they deserve, while some receive up to 5 comments. Why? Simple, their fanfics are original, and do not have the following content:
1. Cheesy as hell plot/romance.
2. Levi (or any other popular character) being OOC to the point of lusting over the reader for no apparent reason.
3. Bland Mary Sue reader character that is loved by almost every single guy/girl in the damn show.
Let’s be real here, most readers won’t even bother leaving a comment on a story

One of the coolest things about publishing your own comics books is helping develop new talent. Sure, it's pretty sweet when more established writers like Dan Standing or Jaycee Knight come on board to submit scripts, but there's something to be said for the rush of discovering fresh, untapped talent.
One such example is Gigajapo, making his grand debut writing our newest ongoing series Inflated Ego. Remember that name everybody: I'm pretty sure you're going to see a lot more from him very soon!
