NEW CONTEST!!! 3 PRIZES!!!!THE NEW MANGA & CARTOON CONTEST IS ON!NEW CONTEST!!! 3 PRIZES!!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Welcome to the Christopher Hart, "Triple Prize Winners" Drawing Contest #3. The theme of this contest is:
Artists - Start Your Engines!
POST YOUR CONTEST SUBMISSIONS TO MY FACEBOOK PAGE ONLY: FACE BOOK: https://www.facebook.com/LEARN.TO.DRAW.CARTOONS
THE RULES, PRIZES, AND ALL THAT GOOD STUFF:
This is not an ordinary contest, because it features some extraordinary categories, which makes it possible for ANYONE to win, regardless of skill level. This contest is not about "who can draw the best," because that can just be a function of how much experience someone has, their art training, or age. I want to see how CREATIVE you are.
Your submission will be judged on the following categories:
1. Originality (character type, pose, clothing, etc.)
2. Personality (you can "feel" what the character is experiencing)

When You Want to QuitSometimes, this is just not easy.When You Want to Quit2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I won't be the last to admit that this whole manga business for Jesus is pretty tough.
In fact, I might be the first to admit it. And often.
I admit it:
Sometimes, I get wore out.
Sometimes, I doubt my abilities.
Sometimes, I think this is worthless.
Sometimes, I think I am worthless.
Sometimes, I feel defeated.
Sometimes, I want to give up.
Lately, particularly due to certain circumstances surrounding me, I've felt even more strongly that it would be best to just give up. I heard in my mind again and again to just let go. To just quit. To stop making manga. To forget about TG. To stop trying to start something or accomplish anything or hope for greater things.
And then, because God shows up perfectly on time every time, I heard a message that reminded me of something very important:
We are vulnerable because we are valuable.
We are surrounded by forces telling u

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

I've been considering doing something like this for a while, but now I think I'll finally bite the bullet and try.
I'm going to be doing a 'raffle' for a free piece of art, by me. It will be a waist-up, digitally coloured picture of one character of your choice (OCs included!) which I'll be posting up to deviantart when its done.
So, if you're interested...
1. Watchers only! I'll be checking. :3
2. Fave this journal entry.
I'll be randomly selecting a winner September 8th, 6pm my time, and noting the winner. After a winner has been chosen, feel free to un-fave the journal entry again.
I'd like a minimum of 10 people entering! And if this goes well I might do some of these again in future.

~TheRafflesiaI'd ike to have a request... There is a ten-year old girl in our town, called Debi, who is fighting against a really cruel and a serious illness: bone cancer. Her family and friends do everything for this young lady to recover, but their financial funds are constantly decreasing and sometimes they can't even really afford it. The chemoteraphies and the different treatments are horribly expensive, so our town tries to donate her every incomes from concerts, tickets etc. I don't know whether there are enough people. Things for them are getting harder and harder. The problem is that it was found out late what causes her pains. The tumour started to grow in her ankle but now it is approaching her muscles and joints. Her parents are indescribably desperate and shocked, and they also have an exchange student, attending our school, who would need a new home because of the case. Her mother tells that she wouldn't even recognize her daughter if they would show a photo of her. She used to be a b~TheRafflesia3 years ago in Personal More Like This
HIATUS IS OVER AND STATUS UPDATE~Sooo I am back,who missed me~?HIATUS IS OVER AND STATUS UPDATE~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know that the hiatus was a bit longer than I intended, but it was kind of a busy month because of all the university assignments. (still not done with this shit ugh)
I got good and bad news.
The bad news are that I didn't get to draw as much as I wanted, since the assignments were a lot, and the time was limited. So I am still not as satisfied as I should be with anatomy and perspective. That doesn't mean that I didn't practice though.
The good news are that my drawing and coloring style changed A LOT, especially the way I draw linearts(which I am very happy about) and the way I color eyes. You will see what I mean when I start submitting again^^ Another important thing is that I FINALLY got my lazy ass to open my Ulquihime ask blog that I promised back on September, since I finished drawing the background, the icon, the first set of pictures and finally I got to plan the whole story. Everything in full color. I told you that it was going to be a

Did You Know...
...DeviantART has a mass storage system of all your gallery deviations?...you can manage all of your gallery deviations from one location?...you can move deviations into "Storage" and essentially remove them from your gallery while preserving the page view, favorite, download, and other statistics?
THIS IS ALL 100% POSSIBLE!
Many of us have deviations in our galleries that you no longer have the computer file for and would be devastated if you lost them… Ever thought, "I really don't want to download each deviation to my computer or sta.sh but I just don't want them in my gallery any longer! Then there's a handful of deviations I want to turn off comments for. I wonder if this can be done all at once?" If this is you... Keep Reading!

In that time I have also been gathering and formulating for my own Instructional book to have published in the near future.BC Bookbinding Instructional Book!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have myself used instructional books over the years, but have found that they only go so far or are redundant. I want to bring to my audience and those with the desire to learn the craft a book that will instruct in a way that is easy to understand and excites the creator.
Some of my bookbinding friends have warned me not to reveal all my secrets. I do not intend to do this, but what I do intend to do is help others create and feel confident in creating a durable leather-bound book with the quality and the techniques of old.
I only ask for your patience as this is in the works and will not be rushed. I will reveal when I intend to publish.
I would love some feedback and any requests that all of you wonderful people might have. Remember, this instructional book will be created with my g
Blazing TrailsHey everyone! I just wanted to throw out a little encouragement to you!Blazing Trails2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last weekend, I was sort of feeling bummed about the ways in which I'm serving God. A friend of mine at church was getting high praise for doing something that immediately and visibly impacted the church, but it quickly occurred to me that we don't really get to hear that about the manga we create. This sort of discouraged me. At least for me, doing this thing that is so out of the ordinary, not many people have much encouragement for me. They don't get it and they don't see its usefulness.
However, God doesn't leave me discouraged for long. Within 10 minutes of my feeling down, a friend at church whipped out a very surprising gift for me: a Japanese manga magazine written by Christians.
The magazine is called "Ramii" or "Lammy." It's a monthly magazine packed with lots of awesome manga. Minus the thinner size, it's pretty similar in style to any other manga magazine here in Japan. And w

I was quite happy seeing Lmih's name by the chosen raffle. Why? Because I have noticed her commenting quite often and i have urge to think that she hadn't missed any.
I became even happier seeing her work! The colors! The great anatomy! And i could go on and on! Really she has great variety of art! And all of it is good or even better!
