Women ArtistsThe other day, I attempted to put together a huge list of some professional and semi-pro women artists over on my tumblr, because it seems like too often women get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there who are all amazing, who offer unique points of view and design solutions, and who need more visibility and recognition. While putting this list together, I was really excited to find tons of new artists I'd never heard of before.Women Artists1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys, birds knees do NOT bend backwardsI hope most of you know that, but since no lesser of a source then Scientific American just got that wrong, I thought it might be something that needs to be addressed. Blog post here: http://skeletaldrawing.blogspot.com/2011/09/um-hey-scientific-american-bird-knees.htmlHey guys, birds knees do NOT bend backwards3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The short and long of it is that birds knees and thighs are hidden under their body and wing feathers, so sometimes when people look at their ankles (which are quite high on their legs) they mistake them for a knee that bends the wrong way. It's not the knee!
This isn't just important to science nerds and 2-D artists, but it's especially critical to 3-D artists (and the people who rig and animate 3-D models). So please, please, please, tell your friends and relatives that bird knees bend the same way as the knees of everything else.
For those who like to know such things, the bird skeletal above is my Presbyornis skeletal, while the Homo sapiens skeletal is adapted from Ch
My top Vocal Trance Songs (July 2012 Update)Art and Music are two of my biggest passions in life. Music is as an important part of my creative process as my camera and editing software. By nature, I am a happy and energetic person. My music of choice is Trance. Comprised of beautiful vocals and uplifting music, Trance is "my" sound. It is what sets my soul free. I don't just listen to trance, I feel it. It is actually my inspiration and my muse. It gives me a direction, sets the moods and atmosphere, giving my work a distinct sensual and sexy feel.My top Vocal Trance Songs (July 2012 Update)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

My new website design and fancy illustration blog!Hello dear colleagues!My new website design and fancy illustration blog!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My portfolio website has a new design I used one of the amazing Wordpress themes from GoodLayers.com . What I like most about this is how easily a blog is integrated into it. Now I finally have a blog inside my website instead of a separate one!
Also, I like the dropdown menus! Finally I can add some content without creating chaos
Also, I used to have a blog about painting on tumblr but I'm no longer using it now. Instead I plan to continue this new one. There, unlike on tumblr, I have full control over the design, and it is more serious looking:
Here I will now write about all things illustration and art that happen to interest me
Please visit and enjoy reading. Your feedback is much appreciated too!

-Anyone interested in Commission, well first of contact me On my E-Mail:
PLEASE Contact me on the e-mail. From now on I'm ONLY gonna be taking the slots from people who contact me there.
I take commissions from other sites aside from DA, and everyone contacts me on the e-mail, which makes the tracking easy to see who sent first, and give that first person the slot.
Also remember, FOR YOUR EMAIL TO BE VALID (in case there were more commissioners than slots) when ordering the commission make sure you write the following:

Awesome Pic of the DayAwesome Pic of the DayAwesome Pic of the Day1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Every once in awhile, I come across a picture that takes my breath away. My DeviantART page has been kinda bland recently, so I thought it would be cool to dedicate a section of it to feature these awesome pics. You'll find it under a section called Awesome Pic of the Day. It's much easier and quicker to post these, and I'll try to keep it updated daily or as close to it as I can get. If you think it's a good idea, let me know, and I'll keep it around. I'll archive the history of pictures in this journal entry.

As some of you people know, I am a fan of Kill La Kill and have been riffing on the "uniforms" of the rebel group Nudist Beach with crossover characters.
As you can see from the recruiting poster, there is a basic uniform design but you can customize it - as I have - for the various characters I have drawn.
Even the 4 Devas have their very own version of a Nudist Beach uniform so there really aren't any limits except that you can't technically be wearing clothes - you can only wear accessories such as hats, belts, straps, s

I think this is a good time as any to spill the beans about the personal project I've been working on for the past year:
A graphic novel trilogy telling the story of the Franklin Expedition.
Volume one is finished, volume 2 almost finished, volume 3 in progress.
The first book will be released in spring of 2015 in Germany.
The Timeless Code of the Eternal OutsiderWhy Drive will be the movie that is remembered in years to come. Film Noir is a genre of “life in the shadows” movies that became popular in America during the uncertain times of World War II. Westerns have remained a shorthand for the American psyche with their sullen outsiders with a personal code of honor bucking the system. Samurai films mirror the lone avenger protagonist, but set against a longing for a lost society of incorruptible values. Now and again a notable contemporary noir or western or samurai film emerges with little fanfare amidst all the commercial cacophony of the louder, bolder, more spectacular action films that rule today’s box office. One such gem of film blending all three genres flashed out of the shadows briefly in 2011. It’s called “Drive” and I think it is the greatest artistic achievement of the past year.The Timeless Code of the Eternal Outsider3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Zenra Restaurant ( 全裸レストラン ) is the site of an artist named Heriyama ( 縁山 ). The style is a little like the art of Eiji Torashiro with strong lines and buff looking characters. The artist seems to like centaurs. I managed to find an entry on the Doujinshi DB project and at Pixiv. There's some mature content mixed in the site so be aware before browsing the site. The artist has had work published in a few adult magazines. Here's some of my favorite images from the site:

Kunoichi Shyuuren Jyou「くノ一修錬場」 is the website of an artist that goes by the nickname Shiranui Mokeiten「不知火模型店」. I visited his website a few times a few years ago and never got around to writing about it. After stumbling across his work on Pixiv, I was reminded about him and thought the time had come for a feature. His gals are definitely muscular, and his dabbles in both 3D and 2D art, as well as futanari work. It's definitely worth your time to go through his website and Pixiv account. Here's a few examples of what you'll find:

Maruchiro「まるちろ」is a futanari artist. I'm not normally a fan of that subject, but I become one if the girls are muscular. I don't want to run afoul of DeviantART's policies, so I won't be posting a direct link to the site. Just putting the artist's name into Google can help you find the artist's page if you want to explore it more. Here are some examples of the muscle work you'll fine, with the naughty bits cropped out:

I made this mind map a few weeks ago and I'm pretty excited about it. (I made the map using a program called MindNode [link]). It describes all the areas of the work I do as an artist (or want to do). Making a map like this was suggested in "The Profitable Artist."
I divided my work into four main components that are important to me:

B.L-san's website Abasaa-Jiru ( アバサー汁 ) recently came on-line. The title comes from his Doujinshi circle name, and a little research shows that it translates roughly into "juice of the long-spine porcupinefish". He's a contributor over at the popular oekaki, and I've been a fan of his artwork for awhile. He's got his own oekaki at his site, which you should really check out. He also posts some of these pictures and some original stuff in the main blog section.
