Cubebrush 2.0 BETAHello peeps! Since October, myself and a small team of web developers have been hard at work on a new website where users will be able to sell digital content or browse for art-resources that they might need.Cubebrush 2.0 BETA in Personal More Like This
It was heavily inspired by websites like Etsy and Gumroad where a lot of artists are selling products they create and making a living doing so. Our marketplace will feature content specially for artists such as tutorials, brushes, textures, 3D models and much more. It will be amazing if I may say so myself
We are a few weeks away from our initial release and I wanted to let you know what URL to use to reach the new site!
You may be familiar with cubebrush.com which is our current site and will remain live for now. The new website address that we call for now cubebrush 2.0 will be cubebrush.co until we decide to merge the two.

Starts in ZBrush for the sculpt, then keyshot for render, then Photoshop for composition.
Speedpaint in Verve!Here is an hour long painting I did in Verve to see if it could produce something decent in it... not bad! I really love the more traditional look. Always wished Photoshop had something like this. Still pretty tricky to work in Verve and it feels very limited still but for an alpha version its fucking awesome.Speedpaint in Verve! in Personal More Like This

From Myth And Legend
“The wind within the trees was a whisper that spoke our tongue, and the stars in the sky shone on the gods of our heavens, alight and alive. What is science against alchemy, we asked them, what is coincidence against prophecy? Kings and beggars stand equal as fates unfold and worlds awake, as heroes rise and deities fall… among nymphs and mermaids, against harpies and sorceries, we must stand as one. Will you brave the lands of myth and legend with us?”

What do you think your favorite city will look like in one hundred years?
Architect Rem Koolhaas has completed a “vertical city” complex in Rotterdam, bringing a new style of multi–purpose skyscrapers to the city skyline. Bennett Stein wrote about the new buildings for KCRW’s Design & Architecture blog, calling the creator “the Godzilla of architecture.”
Here’s an excerpt from Stein’s essay:

The Warrior and the Mage
“Preys of the thirst of blades and hunger of spells, what are we but witnesses of a war of two? Steel cloaks the hills as mist rises from the seas, and the night grows bright from shining swords and enchanted words. Whose blood will it be on the meadows, whose cry will echo the victory? When the drums are put to sleep, who will rule between the warrior and the mage?”

How it began :)First of thank you Theta Helion for the three month. Totally unexpected and thoroughly appreciatedHow it began :) in Personal More Like This
I get asked a lot how I have surrounded myself with a nice array of models. It truly is very hard to do in the beginning. Sites like model mayhem are good but can be mind numbing. So how did it all happen?
As a young man, I fell in love with hooters wings. Everywhere I travelled, I made it a point to check out the "local" hooters. Now this was in my late teens, early twenties. Fast forward to two years ago. I had started doing the model mayhem thing and there I found a few women and it was cool but hard at the same time. I had just started shooting and had zero port. Luckily though there are a lot of women who want to be models and if your not a total freak and weird you can shoot them. Still wasn't satisfied.
So I went up to the local hooters and it hit me. Tons of women, most gorgeous, build a good rep and bam it might work haha. So Abe and I talked one into coming into the studio

It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for 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 submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

I will be leaving dA for two years..Hey my awesome watchers and friends!I will be leaving dA for two years.. in Personal More Like This
Well, yes, like the title says, I will be leaving dA for two years as of the 18th of April, so in about a week. This is a tough decision, as dA has become an important part of my life, because I am actually trying to build up a living with my art. But you should know, that I am a Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.. ) and I am 18, close to 19, so I am going on a mission. That means I will be going to the Alpine region (Switzerland, Austria, South-Germany) and talk to the people about what I believe in. You have to know, that this is something I carefully considered and I have a strong belief in God and so I want to share the joy my religion has brought me. The mission will be for two years and I wont have the time to upload any art to dA. My sister PixieCold will keep you up to date through journals on my page here, so you know what I am doing and how my life is going!
Please, if you disagree with
