I just got back from me brother's wedding overseas - had an awesome time and it was great to finally see my bro taking the next big stage in life, looking forward to seeing his kids in the future!
Anyways I'd like to point out some really awesome Sonic Comic Dramas that got me through some of the homework I did for the Academy of Art university a couple weeks ago. I'm going to make a proper list a little later so that I can conveniently go to it during my times of tedious work! Be sure to check these out when you get the chance!

Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean MindWelcome to the first 30 day challenge! This month’s challenge is:Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean Mind2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Clean Media, Clean Mind
You’ve heard “you are what you eat” and it applies to more than just food. So the challenge is to clean up what sites you visit, videos you watch, and music you listen to. After the month is over, tell us via picture or journal how changing what you consume, has changed how you think, speak, and act. Things to cut out of your media diet: sex, drugs, drinking, swearing, occult, and violence.
These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.
Level 1: baby steps
Cut out media that is blatantly sinful. I’m talking porn, violent movies, songs that swear every other word, etc. If it’s too hard to hold off for 30 days, consider how that itself is a problem. Are you making media an idol? Talk to a trust friend about it or a fellow group member. Also consider listening to a positive radio station:

First here's what would look like in the newsstand or local comic book store shelf.
Not bad huh? Just to clarify to everyone this is a mock publication that will be personally submitted (in person) to Archie Comics at Comic Con San Diego 2013 as a portfolio review (and as a gift too!). I plan to have a chat with Paul Kaminski (current Editor/Executive Director of Editorial at Archie Comics) and see what I need to do to gain a spot to work there in the near future.
And to be honest with you, many people here may think that I want to be one of the sequential artists, or be the one in charge of artistic direction (ie in the visual sense, like advanced story boarding ) of the stories that Ian writes for the Sonic series, or be one of those who help touch up the comic art (eg inker/colourist/letterer etc) but the reality is I'm not really interested in those aspects - and I know for a fact t

Hi guys! Just posting this for kicks. I really need a break from all of these crazy assignments due at School of Design. I'll be doing some vocal recordings based off the Sonic Archie characters that I'll be using for my latest voice demo reel.

I'm immensely proud of this production, immensely pleased with Kovabomb's performance as Enerjak (boy he kicked ass, some of his lines are unforgettable - "It seems that you've scuffed my helment - HOW RUDE!!" & "... the power... Yeeeeess!") and Brenda's performance as Jani-ca (my most favourite performance of hers is when she is casting her magic with the Sword of Acorns to steal back Enerjak's powers and contain them altogether - by the power of the trademark 'Echidna Heritage Chant' aka "The servers were the Seven Chaos. Chaos is enriched by the heart! ...").
Oh and because I couldn't help but love Silver the Hedgehog, and that I have this hint of ego when it come to voicing the character, I gotta say that I vastly improved on my vocal performance for this guy (and I don't care if

(...) Everyone has a moment when they think “I am a bad artist.” and they think that because they see a level of skill they have not achieved yet. If this is the case, every artist ever is a bad artist, because every artist ever has had some idea, some plan, some goal of a skill level or creation that they have not achieved yet. And that’s good. Learning and growth and moving forward are all good things, so instead of trying to be some fictionalized version of a good artist, let’s all be bad artists together.

And why shouldn't he deserve it? He is after all one kick-ass Metal Sonic, he's becoming a favourite of mine and I wouldn't really consider him a complete replica of Metal Sonic, but a welcoming addition to the Sonic Archie series cast with a unique personality and he's a walking, talking and egg-bot-busting robot (well... He does borrow some of Sonic the Hedgehog's ego and that 'attitude'... *SHARD: "Hey! What attitude?!"*).

I'm in the process of applying for an Internship at Archie Publications Inc. for the Summer of 2014. Fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly - all the paperwork from Immigration US/Homeland Security can be a real pain in the butt.
Anyways now that I'm done with the first semester at the Academy of Art (averaging B/B+ grades!); spent quality time with me best mates via :iconchemb0t: and :iconevanstanley: for Christmas and New Years; and wished my family and friends a Happy New Years it's time to make full use of my three weeks before school starts this Spring 2014.

Massive Art TheftI've dealt with art theft in the past, but usually it's been done by kids who didn't know any better, or from people who just saw my art and decided to use it for a t-shirt or something without asking. Nothing too serious. But this is the first time I've heard of such a giant mainstream art theft scam, and worse yet, it's coming from a rather well known person.Massive Art Theft3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Chad Love Lieberman, nephew of Democratic Presidential Candidate Joseph Lieberman, created a website called Art4life.com which was selling "original" artwork for hundreds to thousands of dollars. The only catch is that the "original" artwork... was all work stolen from other artists, most from here on DA.
Now thankfully the website Art4love.com has been taken down due to copyright infringement. But then almost immediately MakeYourSpot.com was put up with almost the exact same stuff for sale. That site ALSO has been taken down, but with this guy's track record I wouldn't be surprised if another 3rd site came up to compensate.

Ok, following the line of sharing with you the lyrics from the original themes of the OST, here I let you the ones from my personal favourite: Wreck-it, Wreck-it Ralph by Buckner ‘n’ Garcia, who were previously famous for writing video game-themed songs in the 1980s, like Pac-Man Fever =3
I love this song a lot since it describes the Fix-it Felix Jr. Game mechanic and backstory so well… allowing you to appreciate the characters from both points of view ^^!
Wreck-It Ralph is a giant of a man
Nine feet tall with really big hands
Living in a stump on his very own land
Until his world went crazy.
He was minding his own business on the day they came,
They showed a piece of paper saying "eminent domain".
They built an apartment building saying progress was to blame,
But he got mad, and he turned bad
Brick by brick, he's gonna take his land back!
Wreck-It Wreck-It Ralph as fast as you can!
You know you can do it with your colossa
