I hope you guys are as excited as I am... to dress up as the MOST offensive thing I can imagine! LOL JK!
What are you guys dressing up as? Let me know in the comments below! Even if you can't dress up, what would you LIKE to dress up as, if you could?
Personally, I'm not allowed to dress up for Halloween at our school, because we have a strict school uniform dress code (Private School), HOWEVER... (he he) ...we do little things to make ourselves into characters, albeit in a very subtle way!

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunde

The Comfort of Mindless Obedience
When is information true and useful and when is it just “propaganda?” Why in fact is an image or phrase or animated art sequence “propaganda” rather than it simply being a “lie?” What about acceptable lies that define our society as much as they degrade it - - for example commercials that obviously hype a product with untruths or political advertisements full of unachievable platitudes.

Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen?Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen? in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Oct 17, 2012 by $techgnotic
Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

No Excuses, I can't eat another bite...Can't eat another bite? CAN'T EAT ANOTHER BITE!?!?No Excuses, I can't eat another bite... in Personal More Like This
That is just preposterous and ridiculous. This is the worse excuse ever. Is it because you're full? Saving room for dessert? Do you not like the food? It doesn't matter! It's Thanksgiving! Be grateful for the food you have to eat.
Your loved ones spent a long time preparing this food! You're Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Girlfriend, boyfriend and/or friend spent a ton of time making this feast. You sit down, be thankful and enjoy it, and don't give me these lame excuses!
And even if none of these people prepared it, if you did all the work, then Sit down and enjoy your labor! You deserve it!
Seriously. Today (at least in the states) It's a day to be thankful. And I truly am. Not everyone gets to follow their dreams with the support all of you give me. And I appreciate it more than I can accurately express.
Tutorial Tuesday: NatureNature.... oh boy nature. How the hell do we draw nature? It's just so complex and so random. Its impossible to draw something that's so random, right? You just draw it randomly and hope for the best.... Tutorial over.Tutorial Tuesday: Nature in Personal More Like This
.... Just kidding! Thats not how we roll here. Believe it or not things in nature are not random, they are very ordered, patterned, and deliberate. Nature is not perfect, but it tries to be and we can use that to our advantage when drawing.
Before we start, it's vital that you spend some time looking at whatever natural thing you want to draw. Everything has its on unique traits. Proportions, patterns, size, these are all things that vary, and depending on the variation will make the difference between a house cat and leopard. And an oak tree from a birch tree. This tutorial is going to focus on helping you identify the patterns that occur in nature.
Lets start with a tree:
24 hour comic overWell 24 hour comic day is over. And depending on your you define success, defines how Seth Talley and I did.24 hour comic over in Personal More Like This
-- Did We get a 24 hour comic made? No we only got through 15 pages.
--Did we work for the 24 hours straight? Despite out best efforts we could make it only 21 hours before we started falling asleep in our chairs.
-- Did we bust our ass to make the best comic we knew how to in 24 hours? Fuck yeah!
So I'm calling my first 24 hour comic day a success. And though I "failed" at making the comic and working on it in 24 hours straight, isn't the point. The point is I didn't make any excuses. I didn't say it was too hard. I didn't worry that it'd come out bad. I didn't worry that I wasn't good enough to pull it off, or let "artists/writers block" stop me. (though Seth handled the writing so I didn't have to worry about writers block). I just did it, and worked as hard as I could at it. And you kno
Manga Studio BasicsSo I've been asked what software I use to make my creator owned comic: Shadows of Oblivion. The short answer is Manga Studio EX. (the long answer is a lecture on how software doesn't make comics any more than a paintbrush makes a painting.... but I'll save you the speech.)Manga Studio Basics in Personal More Like This
Manga Studio is a great piece of drawing software that takes into account everything a comic artist would need. Rulers, pens, pencils, markers, and brushes of all shapes and sizes. Nearly everything you'd need in traditional media to create comics is here in its virtual for you. Even my personal favorite, Blue lines! But some of you who may use photoshop may get confused. Some of the tools are similar, but not the same, it's a different interface by a different company, so things will be different.
So I thought for today's tutorial tuesday I'd show you two of the tools I us
No Excuses: I have artist's/Writer's blockFirst of all... What the crap is artist or writer's block? I mean, I understand what it is, but how do you get it? How do you run out of things to say, or draw?No Excuses: I have artist's/Writer's block in Personal More Like This
From now on, I'm going to refer to this as artist's block as most of the excuses I hear are about art. But they apply to writer's block as well. (i just don't want to keep writing "Artists or writer's block")
So let me get this straight you want to draw something, but you don't know what to draw, so you're going to just draw nothing.... That makes no sense. It's like saying "I'm really hungry, but i don't know what I want to eat, so I'm just not going to eat anything." That doesn't happen. What happens is you say "I'm really hungry, I don't know what I want to eat, so I'll eat anything I can find." And that's how you have to approach your drawing.
If you want to draw, but you don't know what you want to draw, then draw ANYTHING. It doesn't matter what, just anything you can find. I know exactly what your thinking right n

He has worked on all the major movies, and now has even started his own school! The coolest thing about Feng is he really cares about up and coming artists, and proves it providing a ton of free tutorials! Covering everything from what your portfolio should look like to lighting, and painting tips! I suggest everyone stop off and take a look at what he has to offer! The dude is AMAZING!!

Art is art, words effect everyoneIt bothers me when people say anime isn't art or that it's all the same, because it's not. It bothers me when people say that observational drawing isn't really art. Really, it bothers me when people say anything isn't art. Keep in mind that people work very hard to create pieces of art, whether it's anime, observational, photo manipulation or anything else. Please be mindful of what is said and remember that what is said effects everyone. Even if a person isn't directly addressed when someone bashes anime or any other form of art the person may do, it does effect that person. A lot of times he/she can over hear or see it online. A person can ignore it, but it will still hurt.Art is art, words effect everyone in Personal More Like This
Everyone slips and says something mean from time to time. Apologizing is really important. Let a person know that no one was meant to be hurt. It was an accident and nothing like that was meant to be said.
Username complaintsThis is a bit weird, but I'm going to defend why Colette is my favorite character because of various complaints about my username.. Feel free to disagree, everyone has their own opinion.Username complaints in Personal More Like This
A lot of people contact me just to tell me how much they hate Colette. "She pretends to be perfect" or "She's too perfect" even "She's so typical and useless."
I'm going to try to defend myself for the typical things people message me about out of the blue, trying not to spoil the game. Colette is a girl working desperately for salvation. She is doing everything not only to save the world, but also because she has sinned. So "She pretends to be perfect," absolutely not. She's trying to make up for her past.
As for "She's too perfect," Colette is a chronic liar, a thief and a killer. Enough said, right?
"She pretends to be so perfect?" Colette forgives people for their wrong, probably because she wants to be forgiven herself. If she pretended to be perfect, she'd stick her nose in the air and refu
This afternoon....while i'm drinking some tea and get some relax time, a friend of mine tagged me a photo of a poster that i did for his friend. Yes, it's a poster for a web series called 'Flicks'.

And then i opened my old e-mails from my clients stating ho happy they are with my work that i've done for them.
It's nice to know that your works got appreciated.
This is something that money can't but. The sensation..the feeling...the joy
Learning the knowledge that you can make people happy with my artworks (whatever the theme of the illustrations), it gives me the strength to keep improving myself and do something that i love.
Do what you love and love what you do, eventually it will love you back...

Devious Journal EntryLa sua non era quel tipo di bellezza che attira gli sguardi degli uomini per la strada. Anzi, spesso passava quasi del tutto inosservata. Eppure, quando la incontrai per la prima volta, l' attrazione che provai fu così forte che mi sembrò di impazzire. Fu come essere colpiti in pieno giorno, all' improvviso, da un fulmine invisibile e silenzioso. Era un' attrazione senza limiti né condizioni, senza un motivo né una spiegazione.
