I'm not sorry at all that I am in the pursuit of beauty in my work.
I'm not going to stop for anyone. I do what I do, because I enjoy it.
For years all I built was big space marines and ww2 soldiers, no one ever once told me back then I should 'diversify' and 'do something else' no one ever hassled me either it's just pretty much accepted. Pretty girls though?
Well you know what, I call BULLSHIT.
If you look at my work and all you see is a sex-doll, that's your business not mine.
I never intended any of my girls to be this way. None. If you ask me about any of them, instead of taking them at face value like so many people do, you would discover that they all have intricate back stories, and all mean a great deal to me personally due to what was going on at the time in life etc.

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming4 years ago in Personal More Like This

[video] Its Time For FUCK IT!!!!My Universal reply to every question and every opinion and every concern on every topic for every discussion and every debate to ever exist is simply: SO WHAT? Until we are willing to grow up and take response ability, then any house we build is on a foundation of shit and doomed to fail. So instead of asking irrelevant questions like the marital status of the number 5, why don't we ask relevant questions? Like: why do we insist on using the same piece of toilet paper over and over for centuries, while continuing to pretend that kissing it enough will make it clean? When will we accept that the emperor has no clothes? When will we realize that everything you do in a corrupt system, will turn corrupt regardless of your good intentions?[video] Its Time For FUCK IT!!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

TALENT IS EARNEDTalent is EarnedTALENT IS EARNED1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I get it. There are some people out there that do have some extreme capabilities right out of the womb, but this is targeted to those who are average joes, who think they can’t do things that a person with ‘Talent’ can.
Let’s start by defining the word ‘Talent’. According to dictionary.com it states
1. a special natural ability or aptitude: a talent for drawing.
2. a capacity for achievement or success; ability: young men of talent.
3. a talented person: The cast includes many of the theater’s major talents.
4. a group of persons with special ability: an exhibition of water colors by the local talent.
5. Movies and Television. professional actors collectively, especially star performers.
This definition, in my opinion, is misused when said to me. Because to me it implies that what I do, is specially natural to me and

Just because you have the ability to create a group; it doesn't mean you NEED to!
What is the point in creating a group that has no specific purpose when you're already on DevArt?!
"Oh, I'll create a group that will show any kind of photo"
Why create such a group when you can just hit "photography" on the DevArt front page?
"I'll create a group that'll display the work of anyone that wants to draw attention to their art"
Why create a group for that when it's already DevArt's PRIMARY PURPOSE?!

One dead console.My XBox 360 died last night.......again.One dead console.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was merrily replaying Modern Warfare 3 and was on the final mission when the screen went funky. Now, this happened 3 or 4 years ago, so I knew what was going to happen; I turned the console off in the hope that a reset would solve the funky-screen issue, but rather than a clear image - I get no image at all.
It's a known problem, especially with the first generation of 360 machines and as mine is a "Launch Team" version (If you worked for M$ at the time, they gave you a special edition one with green plating) it certainly falls into that category.
Something to do with the cheap, shoddy soldering used by M$.
Looks like I'll be better off just replacing it with one of the new streamline models, which is a shame, because last time I got my current one repaired I also had it pimped out with these awesome green internal running lights that made it look nuclear-powered or something

F**k-ugly watermarks.I follow a lot of insanely talented artists here on DA, people whose work I look at in sheer awe and whose skill I can only dream of one day matching.F**k-ugly watermarks.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.

The Pitfalls of Speed PaintingI've been meaning to write about this for a while now, but recently a video popped on up Ctrl+Paint about the same topic and it encouraged me to finally talk about it. It's a practice that's been misconstrued and misunderstood for a while now, so I wanted to help people get a proper understanding on the subject.The Pitfalls of Speed Painting4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Speed painting has been something of a fad for 4 or 5 years now, even back when I was first starting digital work. Like many artists out there, I thought, "Sweet, I can do really cool work, really fast!" And like many artists out there, in the back of my head I was probably thinking, "This is easier than learning the normal way!"
Well, here's the main problem in regards to speed painting. Any of those really cool, realistic and well done speed paintings you see are done by professionals who have been painting for years and years. These a
Developing Artists FAQHey everyone, just wanted to make a new journal about some stuff that's goin on in my head, and to those who care feel free to read.Developing Artists FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I've just graduated with a BA in the Arts (WOW SOOOOO HARDCORE) in late April. Aside from handling small freelance and commission stuff between my spare time, I also started working full time at a local mobile game studio as a concept artist and animator.
Now thinking back on my journey so far, I've met a lot of obstacles and obviously overcame many of them, and the ones I didn't overcome I keep on trying. For the longest time, while being in this online art community filled with countless talents of various degrees, I have sought knowledge amongst the community here, and in turn people have also came asking for knowledge in return. While I specialize in the entertainment industry as a visual production and sometimes pre-production artist, there have been many learning curves that I had to tackle by myself, because lets face it, if school wa

Using image sequences as animated textures in MayaToday I've been working on importing image sequences as animated textures into Maya.Using image sequences as animated textures in Maya3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who've never done this before, Maya is not very good at working with animated textures, it's very fussy.
Before you start, you have to make sure that the image sequence is called image.###.ext where ### is the incrementing frame number. Then you create a file texture node, and load the first image, then tick "Use Image Sequence" in the file node.
The first thing you realise upon doing this, is that if your timeline extends before or after the first or last frame in your animated sequence, Maya throws a hissy fit and doesn't know what to do with it.
To get around this, I added an attribute to my object which I was going to animate a texture on, called "frameLength", where I stored the number of the last frame in my animated sequence.
I also added an attribute called "startFrame" which is the frame I want to start my animated texture on.
Then I created an expression so it didn

Tips for smooth clean line artHi,Tips for smooth clean line art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Is your line art shaky, wobbly, sloppy, fat, uneven or pixelated? The subject of clean line art comes up a lot so I've gathered together a number of tips from various DA members that may help you improve your line art. Some of the techniques described below may contradict other techniques described below so you may want to experiment and decide what works best for you. Most of these assume that you have a digital tablet. (Make sure your tablet drivers have been installed correctly. If your cursor is behaving erratically it may indicate a problem with your tablet or drivers.) Some posts have been edited for brevity or spelling:
