updates on new strips and print publishingso, time for some updates.updates on new strips and print publishing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
next week i will be posting the next strip and possibly another one. , by this i mean the next official chapter continuation. before that there is an alan ministrip i'm working on that is just.. ..well.. something nice, ull see not trolling this time XD
now , on publishing.
so far i have gotten a bunch of offers by publishers so that is not twhat is delaying it. personally i have my own preferance so i will probably take that road.
why it is still not out?
simple. going from the webcomic to standard comic format required a lot of work in creative cropping and reformatting.
this brought with itself a problem with making the writing fit.
this was an impossible task which required me to rewrite the whole damn thing.
flow has been significantly improved. small errors in continuity fixed,(like ally telling lisa that the bathroom is third door on the left when it is actually the second door... SHADDAP THAT'S IMPORTANT!)
a lot of wri

'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 5 - BeardsOK so last week I covered one technique for creating skin tones, as promised this week I am looking at how to draw the Ewan's Beard. Firstly I have to say that I treat beards in the same way I draw hair – regardless of where it is on the body'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 5 - Beards1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have looked for short-cuts, magical solutions, inventive tools and spiritual guidance when it comes to drawing hair, and have only recently woke up to the fact that the only way to draw hair is by……well drawing it! Yeah I know not much of a revelation – but my eyes have been opened to the fact that you do in fact need to treat it as any other part of a portrait, it have lines, shades, tones and structure – and as with a nose, ear or eye – you need to treat each element in the same way.
I have produced a selection of step by step pictures to show how I am drawing 'Ewan's' Beard – it only shows the right hand side, but is equally the same for his moustache etc.
Following on from the shading tutorial,
been a while since i did these XDi sometimes do this daily spitpaint group challenge on facebookbeen a while since i did these XD4 months ago in Personal More Like This
you get a theme and got 30 minutes to paint it
videos aren't necessary but i like making them so...
here is the 30 minute skeleton lord XD
i actually do recommend exercises like these for any would be professional, they help you adjust and balance the speed and quality aspects of your workflow. you won't always get the best results but you will start thinking in new ways while painting
so give it a try if you want to
and yeah...i still havent resolved the microphone issue :/

2013 Review - Pencil DrawingsSo at this time of the year I like to review my favourite pencil drawings of the year - these are the drawings that I have noticed and added to my gallery, and are the ones that inspire me to improve. 2013 Review - Pencil Drawings1 year ago in Personal More Like This
People always ask how they can improve their drawings, and the simple answer is always "by practising" which is completely true - but added to that; looking, analysing and simply admiring other peoples work can also help you learn new techniques, identify what makes a good reference from a bad one, and simply push you to trying to emulate some of the pure artistic majesty of these peoples work.
So without further rambling, these are the pencil drawings (with a bit of added charcoal ) that I have admired most during 2013 - Enjoy
death vigil out in julydeath vigil out in july6 months ago in Personal More Like This
so, this july i am starting death vigil, published by image/top cow. it will be a monthly series limited to three 8-issue arcs, so there is a definitive ending. with this i have learned some of the things about publishing independent comics, and i am planning a video with some tips after i summarize my experiences. hopefully it will prove helpful for others to get their stuff published
but apparently rule 1 is promote preorders. preorders are crucial for independent books as they define the print runs, and are crucial to the sucess of the book.. so.. as my far more experienced friends told me to do....
death vigil is preorderable ...pretty much in any place or webstore that carries US comics.
you can find an extensive preview to issue 1 and much more here

what about ravine? ron marz assured me that he will be

SenshiStock USB Drive 2.0! PREORDERS OPEN!April 15, 2014 UPDATE: USB 2.0 Preorders ARE OPEN:SenshiStock USB Drive 2.0! PREORDERS OPEN!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
As a reminder, this will be a PREORDER. The drives will ship in May. Stay tuned on Thursday for the preorder link!
The SenshiStock USB drives have all the stock from Shoots 1-26 in them. It's about 3000 files, 4GB of stock and it's a quick way to have a huge selection of reference images on the go.
Since the release of the USB, people have asked about how to get the stock that was shot after Shoot 26. Much of the post-Shoot 26 stock is being sold through advance download packs on SenshiStock.com. They rotate every 6 weeks and once a pack comes down, it's gone until it starts getting posted to the DA gallery.
However, there's still a LOT of stock that isn't going into those packs for various reasons. That other stock is stuck in limbo, waiting for its turn
REMINDER: Photomanip Tutorial Challenge!Welcome to our official tutorial challenge!REMINDER: Photomanip Tutorial Challenge!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Another tutorial challenge? YES! Keep reading!
Part of "illumination" is learning, expanding our horizons, and helping others learn as well. So, this time we are not going to USE tutorials. Rather, we are going to MAKE them.
What you have to do
Your job is as follows:
Take a critical look at your gallery. What are your strengths as an artist? What are you really good at doing? Are you known for your light and shadow? Color use? "Glow" effects? Do you do skin well? Can you paint really well? Are you a master of masks? What do people compliment you on?
Create a detailed tutorial, with examples, of how you achieve this effect or do this technique. It does not have to involve the creation of a new deviation. You can explain how you did this effect in an old deviation or just with stock without making it a full deviation.

Welcome back to my page after being inactive for so long. I was beginning to wonder now that I think about it if you had forgotten me. 'Cause I kinda forgot about you. Sorry.
Look, and I'm sorry to have to tell you this, I actually don't come on deviantart just because of you... as you do for me obviously. I know, I know... if only I would write back to your comments and take the flirtatious bait. I guess I'm just not that into you.
I come here to supply an art resource to hobby and serious artists. Unfortunately, your gallery of pathetic attempts of "art" (and I use the word loosely) - or none at all - really doesn't classify you as that group of people.
I understand. I really do. You feel such an emptiness in your life that you feel the need to comment on a strangers photos things like:
You're such a fat cow.
I love your toes.
You're ugly as sin.
Can you hog-tie yourself in a maids outfit and put an apple in your mouth?
Let me tell you something sweetie - I'm an ad
'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 4 - ShadingSo apologies first – sorry! I know this is a week late, but I have been busy – honest'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 4 - Shading1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This week's episode will cover how to fill in your drawing outline – or at least how I will 'fill-in' my drawing outline. I was a little disappointed that not many requested the reference picture – so I guess that not many are following along, not to worry I will continue to detail the steps I have taken, and perhaps it will provide a useful reference to some people in the future. Remember these are not definitive ways to draw - just the way that I draw, I am sure it is not the 'best' the 'easiest' or the most 'professional' - it is just the way I draw
So first to basics, almost every journal, art-teacher, tutorial etc. will tell you to start at the top left hand corner of a drawing (right hand if your left handed)
The idea being that you not smudge the work as you work downwards and across the paper. However I would like to mention a couple of things, firstly even though you do this, make s

regarding the slow outputthese last six or so months you have noticed my output here was less than impressiveregarding the slow output4 months ago in Personal More Like This
there has been a family health crisis which i will not explain in details , but suffice to say it caused certain expenses to stockpile so i had to focus on paid work.
so fat this situation seems to be calming down to an extent but it is not likely something that will simply pass
so i can not guarantee a vast improvement in the near future.
i do not need anything from anyone i am okay, i am not here to ask but simply to explain so calm down as i can see already some of you there lovingly throwing money at the screens ...braking screens..and then blaming me for more broken screens XD
