Comipa's Manga Workshop/ Artist Meet Report!I had a great time! I learned so many things from that workshop. AND OMG. THOSE AWESOME PEOPLE I MET. I cannot even :iconcannotevenplz: it was very rare for me to go and meet other artists here in DA but this chance is very rare too, and I couldn't let it pass. Who wouldn't wanna meet the guys behind this group? :iconGunRev: :icongunshiprevolution: They are the premiere manga artist in the Philippine community today. They can also do western style like a boss. Talk about being professionals too. THEY LITERALLY DO ART FOR A LIVING. It's not just a hobby... it's lifeeeee! :iconfrageplz: GO AHEAD!

I learned so much. The dos and donts of doing a manga. From the correct way of doing panels, to perspective, to character design to coloring. And I've learned that there's only 3 general styles in manga?! They seemed so many but there's only three.
And I'm glad that they proved that manga and anime can be realistic too, j
Mother Theresa Quote :)Just something that was shared in my RCIA group today, and I felt compelled to share it:Mother Theresa Quote :)7 months ago in Personal More Like This
"People are often unreasonable,
illogical, and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse
you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best anyway.
You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway."
I hope you all have a wonderful week!

January's Solution Sanctuary: Results (Part I)AboutJanuary's Solution Sanctuary: Results (Part I)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
On January 1st, I challenged everyone in the deviantART community to suggest a lot of Daily Deviations. I did this for two main reasons: A) `thorns told people to put up or shut up and I decided to listen; B) I was tired of hearing people complain about supposed favoritism surrounding whose DD suggestions are accepted by the CVs.
Well, you all rose to the challenge beautifully. Over 200 suggestions were sent into the CVs by the people that participated in my little challenge. I'm dividing the feature articles up into three sections over three days so we can all take some time to peruse and read the fine work you've all found this month. The results of the points drawing will be announced in the last article.

Revisiting Naruto cosplay + Road to Ninja Movie!So I've heard of this film for a long while, but never got to watch it for lack of a proper subbed copy/DVD release.

City of Heroes closingAs most of you may have heard, City of Heroes will be closing its doors on November 30th. I can't speak for VexXxa, but I will continue to keep an eye on this group and it's not going anywhere. Our City of Heroes characters will live on in our artwork and stories. There will always be fans of City of Heroes, and we can always hope for a possible City of Heroes 2 in some form or another in the near future.City of Heroes closing9 months ago in Personal More Like This

Just figured it was time for a Journal update. Not much has really been going on besides getting some new commissions, receiving some old ones and waiting on some others. Also decided to update my galleries and uploading some long delayed commissions I got that I have yet to post up. Reworking my gallery folders and will work on possibly editing some of them.
Of note is that I will be going to the Baltimore Comic-con again this year. I know I will be going down for at least Saturday, possible for both days but not sure yet. If anyone else is going I hope to at least see you and perhaps chat for a bit.

I've been working extensively on a project called Blue Belle 2012 since… the start of the year, pretty much. It's finally starting to go live on here and a few other places because I figure the people I'm roping into doing art deserve a way to go "I didn't come up with this weird shit, go look over here and tell him he's a weirdo". That being said, there's a decent group of people I've got lined up to do art for it:
The first two chapters are up if you wanna go read them, the third should hit soon, and… I know :iconLexiKimble: has one piece halfway done a
On Commissions...Hey. So now that I have no commitments in terms of drawing stuff, feel free to commission me.On Commissions...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Rate: $35 for a single character, digitally painted piece with simple background. $10 for each additional character.
Format: JPEG. A4 size at 300dpi.
Turnaround: about a week per piece.
On Rendering: i have two ways of rendering. one is the straight up digipaint like the catwoman piece above, the other is the faux-lineart like the rest of the samples, except for the attara piece which is old fashioned pencil-on-paper and then colored in PS. if you prefer one over the other please specify.
So, I guess that's about it. Have a nice day.

That would mean that if we have no contest entries for Divine Blood the contest will next launch on December 15th of this year.
The first two weeks have passed without entrants. But I have heard some interest.
We might even have a cosplay entry from the sounds of one comment!
Hurry up and get your entries in so I can start tormenting myself with choosing the best of the bunch.

I've got a few ideas for some new pieces that I'd like to get done of some of my characters that I haven't had art done of yet (they are overdue, poor characters).

SOPA and PIPA, if you haven't heard of these two things by now then congratulations on coming out of the coma, you've missed a lot. These two lousy pieces of legislation are currently creeping their way through Capitol Hill right now to see if they have the support to pass. I'm hoping neither one does because we as a nation are screwed if they do, since it cuts off one of our fundamental rights in the most public of forums.
I am of course talking about free speech on the internet.
Basically the major media outlets, RIAA(the recording industry), and the movie industry want to go after anyone who pirates music, TV shows, and movies. However given how the RIAA tends to throw lawsuits out there to anyone they think has pirated any song do you really want the rest of the entertainment industry to have power like that to decide what constitutes piracy?
Basically these bills are horrible ideas for a few

RICHES BEYOND IMAGINATION...Tis' been a while, i was so occupied with events in my less interesting life, so much things to do, (old and new), revelations and shocks, a few ones on first times so much more time for myself... you know whats good on being "alone" (for the time being)? you get to assess yourself, what you have done and what you can do more and who you can really trust in this world... whats important and whats need to be left out. I used to love solitude, until i met good people... i left myself just to open myself up with a more interesting point of views, more people to surround yourself... it was great, its one of the best things in life, but im way pass that... as much as i wanted to spend time... i rather not... i lost myself in the process... but that's no longer important... i need to walk forward, time to change things my way again. I have also developed this sense of "I no longer want to be part of anyone's life." but rather, if anyone needs to be with mine... walk with me.RICHES BEYOND IMAGINATION...1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Okay---so we got 2nd place for the day. Zero bomb haters affected our average so we couldn't edge out 1st place, but hata's gon' hate, right? Last I checked it's at 4.12 out of 5. Not too shabby. THanks for everyone who their early votes and support. I you aren't a member of Newgrounds and wanna leave a comment, you can write a response here if you wish. Crits are always welcome, as long as they're crits and not any of that "I hate this because Scorpion died" bullshit. That's not a crit.
In any event, thanks again guys! We both appreciate it. You can be assured that Episode 3.5 and Episode 4 are already underway. So no matter what you think of this episode---the level of badass kicks up tenfold with each new episode as we learn more tricks on OUR ends.
Cheers to y'all!
