Ramblings about 'internet fame'A lot of stuff has happened lately in life lately, and is has made me think about things, and about my perspective on it. One of those things, is the internet.Ramblings about 'internet fame'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you know, I'm a huge nerd. While as kid, I didn't had a computer at home, and I hated those damn machines because I wasn't able to work with them at all (so much fail T__T), I soon caught up when I got my first computer at age 14. And while most of my family expected me to end up as a hopeless internet addict, I soon started to learn myself how to program. The rest is history. With my 26th birthday, I also celebrated being a webprogrammer for 10 years already. Oh yeah, I'm getting old for sure.
The recent chain of events have caused me to think about the internet and it's role in life, however. When I first started out with art, I was only a little girl. Me, and both of my younger sisters, were all very creative. And we spend almost all of our time drawing at the kitchen table, while discussing about the characters we
Ze French ConnectionJan 19 - 2014, on a Sunday, while wandering aimlessly on the streets of Deira in Dubai, I noticed a crowd - and rather noisy one at that - had gathered on 9-A Street.Ze French Connection8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now one wouldn't normally expect any kind of commotion coming from that area in particular, considering that this is where the Naif Police Station is located; so naturally I was intrigued enough to get off my usual route and investigate.
A group of French street performers had gathered at the entrance to the police station and decided to put on a little show.
I'm not entirely sure as to why the street performers were there in the first place, but they appeared to be waiting for something.
The two men and the woman in the center (part of the troupe management) were having a heated discussion.
My initial guess at the time was that the mini show may be in relation to the 'Dubai Shop

Big news!*Update* -Tutorials will be coming out on Mondays, starting tomorrow!Big news!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hey what's up guys! Its been a while but I'm back to stay!
There was a good reason for my absence...
As some of you who are following me on facebook might know, my girlfriend and I were expecting and my daughter was born a few weeks ago. This has been the single best moment of my life so far and we've been very very lucky everything has gone so perfect.
With all of that going on, painting was the last thing on my mind but now that I've settled into this new life as a dad, the urge is coming back and I'm going to be painting a LOT more.
I'm going to start a series of tutorials on Youtube where I'll explain everything character related from a beginner's level up to more advanced stuff. This will be a weekly thing and I'll be releasing the first one this week.
What I've been doing so far are just timelapses of regular paintings and while I'll still make these, my goal with the tutorial series is to target ce
5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)There are lots of tips, chestnuts, and other pieces of advice that I've heard over the years--tidbits of wisdom passed on from one generation to the next, from professional to professor to prospective student. Some of them are drawing tips, some of them are tricks to dealing with publishers, and some are general guidelines on how to survive in comics. Most of them are useful and true and will stand the test of time, but a few of them have become hackneyed platitudes and have gone unquestioned for too long. Here are 5 that I'm questioning...5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)9 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. READERS WILL ONLY LOOK AT A PANEL FOR 5 SECONDS, SO DON'T SWEAT IT TOO MUCH.
I understand the intention of this bit of wisdom, and I mostly agree with it: drawing great interiors is important, but at the same time, you don't want to get bogged down with small details that most readers won't even notice.
But here's my concern with this: if you treat every panel like it's disposable, then you're less likely to make an impact with reader

Hard times, and how to survive themMy wife said to me "you've got to be kinder about England when you're around the kids. They loved Derby!"Hard times, and how to survive them6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I had no idea I was being so bitter - but when I thought about it I had to concede the point. And that made me start wondering why - Why did I feel so angry about the UK? What was my problem?
But here's the thing - Some 14 years ago I couldn't get any work. We had just had baby no.2, and I had done a run on 'Spawn: the Dark Ages', and had been suddenly replaced, along with the rest of the team on the book, because McFarlane wanted 'a change of direction'. And then there was literally no work. I went to NY to see DC and Marvel, but they had nothing. I pitched company after company, to no avail. I tried to get on illustration agency books, but was refused by all of them. I tried children's book publishers, Core Design, and other computer game companies. Nobody wanted me. Even Frank Frazetta criticized my art in his book 'Icon' - just to add insult to injury!

Confession to a wolfConfession to a wolf1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My dearest wolf, how delightful it is to meet you. You think you overtook me by surprise? No, you are quite mistaken. I've been longing for you. Day after day I've been watching the paths you took, the territories in which you hunted, the rivers from which you drank. Why the weird look, wolf? I am merely a girl, you caught my scent. And forgive me for smelling like a fox - our paths keep crossing each other; I am cutting the tail of vulpes vulpes with silver scissors and it keeps growing back and this madman keeps stepping on the same rake. Not my fault, now, is it. I know - you can't run with the foxes and yet hunt with the wolf. But you will make an exception for me, won't you?
You look gaunt, my dearest wolf. You are running with chain snippets asphyxiating your neck - did someone try to tame you? Dupes. Come, let me take that old collar off your fine neck. Ah, stop looking at me in such a distrustful manner. We know
Why Cole will not end up with Nya (Not a Rant)Ok so, most of you have heard the rumors that in Nya's bio video on Ninjago.com that there are (big) hints to the point that Nya has a crush on Cole.Why Cole will not end up with Nya (Not a Rant)10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Ok now let's say these are true. Nya does have a crush on Cole and has thoughts about leaving Jay and dating Cole.
Nya confesses her feelings to Cole. Maybe Cole has feelings for her too, but maybe not. Either way he will not date her. Why?
It's the way Cole is. He knows that dating Nya would upset Jay, his teammate and one of his dearest friends. He's the leader. He's always thinking of what's best for the team and what's best for his friends. If he knew dating Nya would hurt one of his friends, no matter how much he liked her back, he would never do it. Cole always puts his friends first.
Now you think about it, would you date your best friend's girl/boyfriend?

More on HatersThis is a copy and paste from my facebook page, but I felt it was really important to say something, and equally valid here:More on Haters9 months ago in Personal More Like This
'I HATE that trashy Image style. Hiding bad drawing with flashy technique….'
Oh boy. I'm so tired of hearing this.
The internet nearly broke yesterday with a battle (on FaceBook) around good drawing, bad drawing, technique, bad manners, being able to take criticism or not, and whether a certain artist did or didn't deserve his success, and why we hate him, or not. It was epic.
I'm not going to go into the details. It got out of hand. My toes curled when I read all the comments. My heart sank. The entire original point of the thread was buried under a mound of vitriol which, justified or not, made me a little ashamed of my industry.
Comics are not all about good drawing. I've seen plenty of Jack Kirby anatomy that aligns to reality only in the most rudimentary sense, but we all know he was great.
The so-called Image style actually evolved at Marvel - and if
