Fan Art Friday: STAR WARS VII The Force Awakens
Episode VII Stormtrooper v03 by juan7fernandez
It seems the Force has truly Awoken, at least it has here on DeviantArt.
It has been one week since the teaser trailer for the first of the Disney owned Star Wars movies was released. Twitter and Facebook nearly broke under the deluge of postings of the trailer and frame by frame commentary of it. Each commentator hoping to spot something everyone else had missed.
Meanwhile on the far distant planet of
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!)

Reminder about Maternity Leave! + PortCon!This weekend I will be 36 weeks pregnant!Reminder about Maternity Leave! + PortCon!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you not pregnancy literate, this means that sometime between this weekend and next, my baby will be pretty much fully developed. Though we want her to stay in there for a few more weeks and cook up really well, she does have the potential to arrive just about anytime now.
In the first few weeks, I expect to be pretty scarce on DA and online in general. For those of you interested in updates on baby's arrival, I recommend checking my personal twitter account which I will likely update soon after she gets here (assuming all goes well and I am able to do so). Probably don't want to follow that account unless you're REALLY interested in Sailor Moon, just sayin' But I do have a stock account on twitter, too which is less personal stuff and more just stock updates.
While I am away, I hope to have a few friends checkin
WINNER! Re-design slave Leia! Win earrings!This contest was extremely hard to judge, and once I'd narrowed it down to half the entries, it was almost impossible. If I hadn't added a runner-up prize level, I'd still be judging now.WINNER! Re-design slave Leia! Win earrings!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you so much to everyone who entered. The variety of entries was better than I could have imagined! I was really amazed by all the creativity. I saw the bra turned into a vest. I saw the neck chain used as a signature weapon. I saw the red drapery turned into skirts and loose, baggy pants. I was amused to notice so many people leaving the boots as they were after I mentioned that I liked them. I saw Leias suited for ballroom dancing, sneaking around dark city streets, firebending, brawling, and just being awesome!

PPOV - Percy's point of view
The pure white snow glittered in the sunlight. The delicate flakes fell lightly from the sky, since Chiron had allowed them to. In the outside world there was a minor blizzard, and I knew Demeter was in a bad mood. I sighed and rubbed my gloved hands together to keep warm, fascinating at the mini cloud of warm air that formed when I blew out a small puff of air. Most daily camp activities and lessons had been canceled, since almost everyone had left camp for the winter holidays.
She looked so pretty, just standing there with her blond princess hair tumbling down her back, a sparkle in her stormy grey eyes as she watched snowflakes melt when they touched her gloves. I resisted the urge to go up to her and say, "Hey Annabeth," but instead slowly snuck up on her, thankful to the snow for muffling my footsteps.
I watched, transfixed,
How I made the Alien fossil pendantMany people have asked how i made it so i'm gonna tell you In great detailHow I made the Alien fossil pendant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I made it because a very nice man asked me to. Challenge accepted!
And i must admit - it really was a challenge
I have spent quite some time scratching my head and thinking 'how da hell am i gonna make this?'
So we're talking about this thing:
I started from the head.
The top was supposed to be shiny so standard wrapping was out of the question. I chose a low dome half round wire instead. That thing is SO hard to bend sideways and i had to bend it to get the head shape. After the bending battle was done i spent an hour fine tuning the shape of the head with various files.
Then there was the jaw. And the bottom of the head. The bottom should have some details so wrapping it worked fine. I measured how much wire should go into it, flattened 20ga wire, filed tiny little teeth in the front of the jaw, shaped it to get a bit of 3D action going there and wrapped it al

3rd Star Wars OC ContestHey there sweeties!3rd Star Wars OC Contest8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I finally pulled myself together to announce my
3rd Star Wars OC Contest
THEME: there's no clear theme for the contest, I thought about to give a suggestion though, which is: AU (Alternate Universe). Lately I played a lot with AU stories, so I thought that you might enjoy dealing with them too. You can use any of our AUs or come up with whole new concepts. I would like to make you use your imagination on this contest. : )
You can find references and descriptions of our AUs here:
But if you would like to work about a normal, main story thing not an AU piece that's perfectly fine too. : ) I just wanted to give you some ideas.
There's two categories, DRAWING and WRITING (I accept any visual art but it has to be your own work, no bases, manips, etc)

OBJECTIVE: SELL THIS DAMN BOOK, DANNY.
At first, Gabriel was nothing more than a character named ONE. He had no backstory, no face, nothing. I just wanted to create a character that was a badass, yet with a sense of humor.
I was inspired by such characters as Boba Fett, Wolverine, Deadpool and Clint Eastwood from The Man With No Name trilogy. I needed to create something that fit that build, however, I'll admit, it wasn't intended at first.
I uploaded him on December 8th, 2008, (which, you can find here: http://danluvisiart.deviantart.com/art/GABRIEL-107612010?q=gallery%3Adanluvisiart%2F7848546&qo=50) and he became one of the most popular characters of the series, if not, the most. Soon I started finding him on forums, websites, fashion blogs (what?), and more.
But what hit me so hard was that the majority of the comments rela

A friend just reminded me that we should be keeping CHRIST in CHRISTmas!
I completely agree! It drives me crazy when people forget to honor their god on the occasion named for him. I mean, look at the word! His name's right there at the beginning!
So this year, I'm very serious about keeping Christmas for Christ!
But I don't want to forget about all of those other gods!
I'm also keeping January for Janus, the Roman god of doors and gates.
And February for Februus, the Roman god of purification.
And March for Mars, the Roman god of war.
And April for Aphrodite, the Greek god of love and beauty.
And May for Maia, the Italic goddess of spring and flowers.
And June for Juno, Roman goddess of marriage, and protector of the state.
And July for Julius Caesar, believed to be the descendant of a goddess.
And August for Augustus Caesar, upon his death was officially declared a god by the senate, to be worshiped by all Romans.

OBJECTIVE: CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND STORY BUILDING
I began working pretty heavily on LMS during the first quarter of 2009. I had now a handful of characters, a rough idea of the story, and a general scope of what I wanted the book to be. To get started, I felt every book should have a theme. Movies do, right?
Spider-Man: Great powers, great responsibility.
Batman: Be more than just a man, a symbol, and be remembered a legend.
Star Wars: The myth of a heroes destiny, and the truth that allows him to be set free.
Who was Gabriel? What type of character or archetype was he? What were his rises and

Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop.Hey everyone, just wanted to bring to your attention a plugin that might be useful for you. It's called Lazy Nezumi, and its main function is to help smooth your strokes out when you're drawing. So, if you want really tight, smooth lineart, or just clean lines in general it's pretty great. In a way, it lets you create a digital stroke closer to how you would on paper or a canvas, it just gives you more control. It's akin to the Lazy Mouse feature in Zbrush, or the Steady Stroke feature in Sketchbook Pro (which I'd highly recommend for anyone doing lineart, it has other great features as well).Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There's a free demo for 30 days you can try out first and see if you like it. It has other features as well, but the one I find the most useful is the "pulled string" method under position processing, when you click details. It's something you might have to try to understand, but it can be super useful.
The main issue I see is that

It is with heavy hearts that we must inform you of the passing of our darling daughter, Alie. Her final days were fairly peaceful, sleeping much of the time but also able to watch some of the Winter Olympics and enjoy her favorite event, figure skating. Her final moments were peaceful with both parents by her bedside.
We have all been preparing for this day for the past several weeks, knowing it was coming far faster than we hoped. From the moment in December when the news came of her terminal illness, Alie has continually amazed us with her positive attitude and limitless spirit. We have all learned from her selfless approach to life, her giving nature, and her passion for the possibilities that life hold for all of us She was so thankful for all of the outreach shown to her by her friends and family and we share in that gratitude.
