Alternate RealityHello Fellow Deviants!Alternate Reality3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every couple of years I manage to crawl out of my dungeon and rejoin the public world for a few hours. This time around the outing was very special as I visited one of my favorite local Las Vegas comic shops. Alternate Reality Comics hosted a lovely reception for me as the feature artist of their October 2012 Artist Spotlight.

If Comic Oasis is my home away from home, then Alternate Reality is my home away from my home away from home.

YOUNG JUSTICE: CANCELLATIONWith this online art community, we have a unique opportunity to connect with our kindred. We must avail ourselves of this experience, for it may never come again.YOUNG JUSTICE: CANCELLATION3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, YOUNG JUSTICE fans, the sad news is now official. This very popular show will -- Reach-- its abrupt and premature end with the conclusion of Season Two. It is with a heavy heart that I confirm the reports. Of course, none of us was able to say anything about it since last year. It was a very fun ride. As for the reasons behind the cancellation, I can only say that it was beyond the control of WB Animation, and that the decision was made by the powers at Cartoon Network (bless 'em). On behalf of the producers, and the rest of our dedicated crew at YOUNG JUSTICE, I would like to express our deepest gratitude to all the loyal fans who supported us, who shared the dream with us, and who will continue to love the YOUNG JUSTICE universe
A Shooting in AuroraLate last night, a lone gunman went on a killing spree in a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado.A Shooting in Aurora3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At least 12 people were murdered, and many more were wounded; some of them are in critical condition.
If you are a spiritual person, please say a prayer for the dead, the dying, and those living touched by this tragedy.
If you are not a spiritual person, any happy thoughts or kind gestures would surely be appreciated.
Please refrain from any speculation, politicization, rumor-mongering, conclusion-jumping, finger-pointing, and other similarly inappropriate behavior for just a little while, if possible. It hasn't even been 12 hours since the tragedy took place, and that sort of unproductive demagoguery is already being handled nicely by the 24-hour news venues.
Real tragedies like this happen, all over the world, and our responsibility to our fellow man is to render aid & support, be it large or small, in times of crisis.
Obsolete InkingLately I've been doing work for DC Direct--the wing of DC in charge of statues, toys, etc. It's been a nice break from PRJ. The money is good, and it hasn't been soulless like I imagined. Corporate gigs can go either way--sometimes they want you to do exactly what "they" want, other times they want you to do your thing unencumbered. Luckily this was the latter.Obsolete Inking4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The rates for toy designs are broken down into three parts: you get paid for the sketches, the final pencils and the inks. For this gig, the inking rate was higher than my normal inking rate. It felt good, but then I realized that 25% of my fee was for inks. And it raised an unsettled concern that's been on my mind.
How long will inkers be needed?
In the old days they needed inkers because computers weren't yet being used in print. I forget the name of the machine that preceded the scanner (process cameras?), but it was low-tech enough that i

Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-ConNo matter how tired your feet are by what is actually Day 5 of Comic-Con, counting Preview Night, no matter how exhausted your body and empty your wallet, there's always a bit of sadness in the air when the last few hours of Comic-Con wind down.Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-Con2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
In the deviantART booth, we witnessed something a little magical when the voice came over the loudspeaker to announce that Comic-Con was closed at 5:00 pm sharp, the remaining straggling attendees and exhibitors packing up stopped what they were doing and burst into applause. It was a mixture of relief, pride, and fulfillment of a successful convention.
Someone yelled, "See you in 365 days!" and there was a true moment of community with everyone in earshot. Sure, it's a sad sentiment, but it gives us all something to look forward to, and the months ahead will be filled with the happy memories of all we accomplished over the past week. Friends met that stop by every year, new friends, new properties to become fans of, new comic books to read and

Holiday Card Project 2014Holiday Card Project 20149 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The deviantART #HolidayCardProject is back for its 8th year! With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In 2013 alone, the Project received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for deviantART volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in a card will
Footsteps Of The GraveThis only happened a couple of nights ago. 6/20/14 to be exact. It was one of my best friend Sam's birthday that day so we had a party for her at my place.Footsteps Of The Grave1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It was fun, chaotic; but that is just another usual day of our lives for us. We even gave her the grand tour of the abandoned house up the road from my home. Where creepy shit happened again as always.
Well, anyway, that night when our other friends went home; Sam wanted to play seek n scare in a graveyard not far from my house at all. It was getting dark by 9:30 or so. That's when we left for it. Now, it was only four of us. Me, Sam, my sister Beth and our guy friend Riley walking down the dark street.
Once we got there, we got only two rounds into it but we were there for a while because of what happened. Now, it was only us, NO ONE ELSE was around, and the house next to the G yard had no lights on inside...
I went first; they went looking for me for a while until I finally jumped out f

I never mention it was my original idea, I just found this image on google and think it was so cute. I always found inspiration on many other crafters, like everyone else does; on the image I saw, any watermark was present that indicate me who was the creator, now that you told me, she will be credit
people just need to understand... inspiration doesn't mean copying! inspiration is like looking at a paiting and doind a sculpture that derives and isn't a copy of the painting for example! inspiration is looking at a charm and taking that idea to another level!

Thinking about the giveawaysHello everyone!Thinking about the giveaways3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just wanted to write a quick journal, since i'm in the middle of writting a paper and my teacher requested it to be in english (Not that hard for me but i'm not used to it...).
I've been thinking about my giveaways and since facebook as some rules about contests/giveways i'm going to change the rules a little bit:
-For deviantArt: i'll have 2 giveaways
First: subscribe + fave the giveaway journal or deviation (it will probably be a journal) + comment something so that i know you're really entering = one giveaway
If you like my facebook page or you already liked it = entry on the second giveaway
In the comment i guess i'll also have you say your facebook name so that i can check
The 3rd and 4th giveaways will be for my youtube channel, and i'll do it after i upload the intro video + one or 2 tutorials. I know it may not be really fair compared with dA but i really just want to promote it [the rules will be the same kind, but in with the things you do on youtube xD]
Why The Hate?Just received an email tonight through my Heads Up Studios website which reads, "Wow, my kid can draw better than this! Is this the limit of your ability? As a real artist, I would be humiliated to have anyone look at my art if this was my art." The person left no name and no email. I'm not going to run to my room crying about it, but it's left me a bit steamed as to why the hate? I didn't force my website on this person. If it wasn't their cup of tea, then move on. To take the time to fill out a false name (What a joke artwork) and false email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and then to leave such a comment is irritating and confusing. I walk through artist alleys and see art I don't care for, but I'd never make it a point to go over and tell them personally. I respect the individual doing the art, even though I may not care for it.Why The Hate?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anonymity on the internet breeds this sort of action, and speaks to the true nature of the individual.

One day, humon was surfing the internet.
She was just looking at her favorite pages when all of a sudden a new tab opened up.
She was confused, since she didn't click on any link whatsoever. The tab didn't show anything, just a white screen. When she tried to close the tab, nothing happened. She kept pressing the X to close it, but instead the tab turned to full size. Suddenly, the white screen of the tab turned completely black.
It wasn't only the tab screen that turned black, all the button and everything else on her screen did the same.
Even her mouse disappeared off the screen.
After a little while, she decided to turn her computer off because she simply thought it was broken.
This was a fatal mistake.
Out of nowhere, a full screen picture of :iconcaptainfanclub: appeared on the black screen.
It was most unexpected.
As she loo
