Disqordilicious.So... wow... My inbox has been exploding all week. I've been completely floored by the response to my little graphic story about Disqord.Disqordilicious.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've gotten so many wonderful, beautiful, comments! I read them all, even if I do not respond to each one. I am so moved that so many people found my little story so interesting! Really, it makes me all glowy to know that I was able to hit the artistic nail on the head. Nothing is more satisfying to an artist than knowing that their work "got to people".
Many of you understood exactly what I was aiming for, and that makes me happiest of all!
Knowing that I was able to communicate my artistic vision (with a fan comic!) feels so triumphant. As I posted each page, I would read the comments and keep them in mind when painting the next page... I would put extra effort into emphasizing certain points and ideas of mine to help better communicate them. Really, all of your comments truly helped me to hone my idea and inspire me to keep up with the work. So th

Coming OutIt's true, I am Chinese and I was born this way.Coming Out3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At a young age I began to notice this difference. I was attracted to neither boys nor girls. In middle school, I liked math, and in college, I did my homework all night long.
Being Chinese is not a choice, it is genetic. There are risks to being Chinese because society cannot accept the union between a human and a textbook. I have Chinese friends who didn't need sex because they could foreplay instruments and get screwed by O Chem instead. Now, they don't have a social life and are shunned by others.
But fear not, life will get better. I grew up as a Chinese and I am proud of it (just look at my tumblr user name Maid-en-China ). There is the LGBTC (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Chinese) community to help you be comfortable with your Chinese orientation.
1,338,299,512 people came out as Chinese. You are not alone.
April fools!!! ... Oh wait...

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art
The craziest time in my life evar! x3Craziest time in my life ever!The craziest time in my life evar! x34 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys what's up? :3 I am here to tell a tale that I have lived to tell, lol any ways. It all started when my best friend said that he's no longer excited over going to a net café and playing games and so. I thought "finally, someone opened his eyes" and we both had the stupid idea to go to the other emirate (state) and guess what? It was so fucking worth it! Well am gonna tell it with good details so park your butt aside and be seated.
First we drove out from the net café at 11:00 at night. We drove all the way to the last turn that I know before we officially Get lost! "Dude, once we pass this turn, we're so damn lost we still got balls for this?" I asked him while driving, Amir my friend looked at me and yelled "HELL YEAH!" "HELL YEAH!" I said with him too and sped up with my car, finally reaching the speed of 184 kh/hr and also getting caught on radar "willfully". All that I gave a damn about was raising the volume to max while l

Sexuality, is it a choice?Sexuality, is it a choice?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
**Please feel free to re-blog this post through my tumblr page!:
Also, a personal explanation on asexuality.
Ok, so maybe I'm not really asking this question. But oddly enough the subject has been bouncing up and down a lot recently. I have seen large arguments on facebook and other social networks that for some reason are getting on the "sexuality is a choice" bandwagon. To be honest... I thought we were finally past this point of narrow-minded-thoughts.
So according to this choice in sexuality, this means we can choose to be gay, straight, asexual, bisexual, pansexual, or etc.
But it doesn't work like that. We don't have a "choice". the only choice we have is whether to come out with it or not. The choice to hide our sexuality, the choice to ke

Tutorial Class!Hey creeps!Tutorial Class!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get messages daily asking how I do what I do... and it's hard to explain in an e-mail. It normally ends up sounding like, "well, you know, you just... draw... a thing you like..." So it gets difficult to explain things like using a light table, detailing multiple sketches, how to choose an effective composition, or the mysterious things I do in Photoshop.
Well, my darling creeps, I have good news.
I was approached a few weeks ago by the fabulously enthusiastic people at SKILLSHARE to teach a class specifically on my style, and how to develop your own. They're filming me while I go through my steps, and I get to walk each student through it. Killer.
How this works is you enroll in my class on Skillshare: http://skl.sh/18l2qyx

The Bizenghast Adventure Game!So I was talking with Clint Krause, the fellow who produced the original Bizenghast Adventure Game, which was a role-playing manual set in the Bizenghast universe, published in 2008 by TOKYOPOP.The Bizenghast Adventure Game!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It had a very limited run and is damn-near impossible to find nowadays (the only copy I've ever personally seen is the one I own!), so I asked Clint if he could hunt around for the original digital print copy of the book, so we could make it available for free download online to fans! Hopefully he'll be able to locate it, and much BZG-themed roleplaying will be available for your tabletop gaming pleasure very soon!
On pricing your artwork and creating a career...I am going to be speaking at an "Entrepreneurship In The Arts" program later today, and I've been organizing my thoughts. One subject that is certain to come up; "how do you arrive at a fair price for your original artwork?" I have some definite ideas regarding that question.On pricing your artwork and creating a career...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was always told that the accepted model for artists and artisans, when it comes to pricing, was double your costs for materials, figure out an hourly price (double that for your retail price if you plan to have wholesale/retail differentials), add it up and there's your item price. I think this model is pure bullshit.
I was also told "charge what the market will bear!" Again, vague bullshit. What if you live in a depressed area? What if you live in a third world country? What if you're at some artist's ally at a little convention and there is a kid sitting next to you selling her character sketches for $5 each?
Here is what I think. There are so many variables when it comes to pricing original art. Yo
