The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.

Today I just stumbled upon a real gem: every episode of the legendary Gamesmaster has been uploaded to Youtube by someone destined for sainthood!
(No, not the sh*tty Nintendo propaganda cartoon.)
Gamesmaster was the first TV show to focus purely on video games and video game culture, and, with no internet back then, it was the only way I got to see most games.
My sole gaming platform was the old Commodore 64 warhorse, until I won a Megadrive/Genesis in '93 ("Design a character" competition), and it was another couple of years after that before I got a PC, so things like Monkey Island 2 I only got to see moving via Gamesmaster. Otherwise, it was just a case of staring lustfully at the screenshots on the back of the box.

SPECTRE returns.Holy f**k! I didn’t see this one coming! The next James Bond film is called “Spectre”.SPECTRE returns. in Personal More Like This
For those not in the know; SPECTRE was the villainous organisation that was constantly trying to trigger World War 3 in the early Bond movies and pretty much every super-villain that 007 was sent out to stop was a member of the SPECTER hierarchy. At the top of this criminal network was the shadowy figure known only as “Number One”, who, after a multi-film build-up, personally introduced himself to Bond (and the audience) during You Only Live Twice as Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
Now, the last anyone saw of Blofeld was when Roger Moore dropped him down a chimney, and SPECTRE was never mentioned again because of an ongoing squabble over ownership of the name. During Daniel Craig’s tenure as Bond, an underworld organisation identical to SPECTRE was hinted at but, disappointingly, named “Quantum”. More disappointingly, despite being really rather goo

There have been a few news articles to stoke my irritation over the last couple of months.

Personally, I think all this crap is side-stepping the issue of diversity rather than addressing it. If the likes of Marvel were really serious about it, they’d invest time and capital creating new heroes who are a different gender/race from the get-go. Building up a new mythology for a female or black character would be so much str

The entertainment industries, from the big movie makers to the lowly art whores (like me) know this, and have played upon it for years in order to separate males from their money. As a result, mass media is awash with the female form in all manner of provocative poses and dress.
Many women are fed up with this, but is the whole thing “sexist”?

Chris Pratt playing a straight role like that is a little odd to see. He’s so noted as a comedian and comic relief it’s a bit weird watching him take on a role that is just a straight up action macho guy. Outside that, though, I think it looks good. A hell of a lot better than Jurassic Park 3.
One thing to note though, I’ve seen a lot of fans complaining that the dinosaurs don’t have feathers or look like “real” dinosaurs do as we’ve learned more through paleontology. And while I understand that concern I honestly don’t care. My personal headcannon is that these are genetically modified dinosaurs supplemented with amphibian DNA. As a result the fact that they’re not 100% accurate to our current knowledge of dinosaurs if A-OK in my opinion. Not to mention it’s a continuation of the Jurassic Park world, so switching things up now would just look weird. The T-Rex and Velociraptor are such iconic

1. Never offer artistic advice or hint at the possibility that the way young and inexperienced groups of artists work might in some way be flawed.
2. Every comic must be inherently drawn better and be funnier than the last.

There have been some absolutely wonderful comments and messages being sent my way, and several of you have even sent me links to advice sites or inspirational posts. I truly do appreciate it. Thank you so very much.

DA's New Logo, and Leaving DA?DA’s New LogoDA's New Logo, and Leaving DA? in Personal More Like This
Looks like crap. I don’t really have anything else to say other than it’s absolutely shitty design work. Apparently the story is that DA had a logo designing contest, but didn’t consult their lawyers till AFTER the contest began. The lawyers advised not using any of the submissions which is why we get this new ugly shitty logo that represents NOTHING about DA other than the usual blatant disregard for community input. Shame too, cuz the art from everyone else looks INFINITELY better than what DA eventually decided to go with.
I dunno if that story is true, but it sure sounds like it could be. Please feel free to correct me in the comments below if I’m wrong.
(PS: Also the Russian studio Platzkart’s logo looks HIGHLY similar to DA’s new ugly one.)

Hello there, girls and boys and Goblins and RBCs and assorted Dear Readers.
I'm really very sorry GND updates have slowed to a trickle, nay, a Chinese water-drip trick, just as we hit what is pretty much the epic-est storyline I have up my sleeve for the moment. There are some incompressible times issues in coordinating with my various wonderfully skilled but also busy and much imposed-upon colour sorceresses, and these are pages that can't quite be dashed off quickly, what with the Costume Porn and getting certain Significant Looks just right... Besides that personally, I have had little time to spare on them (or certain long-ago planned commissions, *cough*) this semester. I've been working on volume 2 of ''Alyssa'' for the French BD market, and am kinda nose-to-the-grindstone, blinkered by the deadline on that. Not that it's not pret

My name is rare. I have never met, in person, anyone else with it. I've heard of four of them because I look for it. I've even seen two on the news. One was a male baseball player (minor leagues, spelled different) and the other got her 15 minutes of fame for killing someone famous and then turning the gun on herself (spelled the same, got it by name change).
In all my life, I have only had one thing with my name on it (not written in marker for ID purposes), and it had to be special ordered.
I hated my name as a kid because no one could pronounce it correctly at school. (In retrospect, I realized that the fault was not with me or my name, but with teachers who were lazy and couldn't be bothered to take a second to sound it out.)
The Impossible CharacterI have this character. I love him to little pieces. If you've watched me for any extended period of time, you know him by now. It's Reg Lahey. Big blue eyes, fantastic tattoos, even better hair, allergic to everything and a little more neurotic than he's willing to admit to himself.The Impossible Character in Personal More Like This
... yeah. That guy.
All signs have been pointing to the fact that he may, in fact, be nearly impossible for other people to draw with much confidence. As for me? I know him front and back. Of all the Serenity Glen characters, he is drawn most easily. He very rarely gives me trouble.
But, as of today, the eight different artists of varying skill levels have told me he's nearly impossible to draw and quit trying (whether I have paid them or not).
I'm a little speechless.
Many people have drawn him successfully.

I don't currently have a social networking address or page or account anywhere. I don't actually want one. I am sure you can imagine what this has done for my social standing at school. No texting plan on a basic cell phone, no Facebook, no Twitter, no nothing! And that's how I like it. Quiet. Nice. &. Quiet.
I don't need any more distractions because I have always been a distracted person. It's not psychological.

Some advice on doing commissions, professional, commercial and contracted art.
Make sure you are paid what it's worth to you.
Do a test run on a portion of what is being asked of you before you say yes or no. Time yourself. Multiply that by the volume of work you have to do, so you know about how long it will take.
Once you've done that, multiply that time by the required minimum wage in your state/country. If you are being offered less than that, then you should inform the client. If the pay is not raised? Run. Head for the hills. This is a contractor that doesn't give a shit about you and is willing to sacrifice you, your time, and your dignity to get what they want.
If you are okay working for this rate, let them know that a pay rate less

I generally don't use a contract if the art I'm going to do is not for commercial purposes or the cost is under $100. What is art for commercial purposes? If the commissioner or client is going to use this image for monetary gain or advertising, that makes it commercial. I know the actual laws on the subject are more complicated, but that's a quick rule of thumb I use. Be wary of a client who doesn't want your signature on it. Even if they say they're not using it for commercial purposes, the unwillingness to let you sign your work may be an indication that they're not being entirely honest. A contract may be useful in this instance just in case.
It's not rude to ask for a contract. You are protecting yourself *and* your client. Any client with an interest in being fair will not object. You're not being pretentious. You may feel awkward asking for one at first, but it d

This year in school someone made a joke about what i am lacking physically. Ha. Ha. So funny. It also happened to be a comment on something I've really struggled with in the self esteem department.
It's kinda sickening when you realize that the stereotype of guys checking girls out and judging certain qualities is true when it's shoved right in your face in a very unkind manner.
If I was clever I could have made a comment about HIS physical qualities...
If I was mean I could have made an even more stinging observation...
If I had tried hard enough I could have really dealt a blow to his self esteem like he did to me.

I don't react well when guys challenge my interest in geek culture and assume I'm only into it because it's all the rage right now (I've got this several times at school*). The reason for being interested in geek culture shouldn't even matter anyways. Frankly, I would be thrilled if the opposite gender population suddenly became interested in my favorite media or fandom. Isn't that every nerd's dream?

Dark Knight ShootingNO I HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE YET AND DON'T YOU DARE SPOIL IT FOR ME!Dark Knight Shooting in Personal More Like This
With that said:
I am greatly distraught at this most recent shooting. My heart goes out to those families. And oddly enough, I am not only saddened, disgusted, and enraged at the deaths but also saddened that these dedicated fans that have waited so long to see this movie never will have the chance to.
Also, I'm quite honestly annoyed at the amount of people who BLAME Christopher Nolan's Batman movies... Anyone crazy and messed up as that could be as likely swayed by one source of inspiration or another. May I point out the shooting in Norway? Evil will not come from just one source, it will come from anything that is convenient. If Nolan's films didn't exist, I'm quite sure this shooter would have found another inspiration. Yes, he called himself the Joker, but Breivik considered himself a defender of Christian culture.
*Please note: I am a Christian, just making a point though that any excuse can be used.

Of COURSE a reboot means a remake... 'cause that's totally what it is... not. In spite of the face-palm inducing ignorance of the general public in regards to who Gwen Stacy and Curt Connors are, I was looking forward to the reboot. "Ah finally! They're going to get things right!"
And they did... Peter's a highschool student, Gwen's his girlfriend, he doesn't have web glands in his wrists...
I have also been a fan of Mark Webb for a while now.
