New Contest! The Will to be Badass!
Sup BADASS! :iconbadassplz:
Even the most gifted badasses have to train. Whether it's mastering their techniques, achieving spiritual enlightenment or just plain old working out, badasses need to train!
This contest is open to original characters and fan works alike.
What we are looking for is...
1. The character or characters working to become or maintain their badass status.
2. This training can be all sorts of things. It can be pumping weights or exercising. It can be practicing with their powers or abilities. If you like it can be something more spiritual, like levitating rocks with their mind. Even meditation, done right, can be badass.
3. Sparring with an opponent can be accepted. However, you should be careful to make it different from an actual fight or combat.
4. While some forms of training can be conveyed in a static pose (like standing beneath a waterfall), most of the best in

Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?
Hello everyone!
:megaphone: :police: Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

5 Art Selling Tips
While I used to see "art sales" simply as bonus money coming in on the side, over the past few years it's become enough of an asset that it justifies an art dealer, record keeping, insurance, and taxes at the end of each year. It's currently 25% of my total income, and that has a lot of impact over my work. And just like storytelling, design and page flow--abstract principles that keep my career afloat daily--art sales also deserve to be studied, theorized, and understood.
These are guidelines, not rules. And while most of them usually work for me, they might not all work for you, so keep in mind that my market might be different than yours. Because not only do we not draw the same, we probably have different sorts of buyers.
1. Don't stay on a book for too long
I find that doing mini series of 4-12 issues is optimal for selling art. If you spend a year doing one-shots or 2-3 issue minis, you'll be hard for buyers to keep track of because it's too infrequent. And it's hard to make an i

Technicalities of Pixel Art - File Formats
I've seen too many pixel works being saved in bad file formats, so I may as well write this to help others and to save me time when I have to explain something.
In a nutshell:
PNG (Stands for Portable Network Graphic)- The best file format for pixel art.
You generally cannot go wrong with this. This file format works best with images with areas of solid color, which includes pixel art as well as vectors.
However, if you use MS paint, you may have difficulty replacing colors using the eraser tool if you try to edit a PNG file.
GIF (Stands for Graphics Interchange Format)- Next best thing for pixel art.
To be safe, only use GIF's if you know your computers.
BMP (Short for Bitmap)- Acceptable
You can't go wrong with this unless you upload BMP's to deviantART (dA will turn your BMP into a jpeg), but this file format is not efficient with size. They tend to be bigger than other files.
JPG/JPEG (Stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group)- If you are doing pixel-work please avoid thi

Fuh..that was CLOSE!

Please check your old electrical appliances, mum's rice cooker, we found out (the hard way) was the cause of all the blackouts in our house lately..the moment she plug it in, boom!

No more electricity. And I was doing backups on my PC at that time..luckily, no images were lost or killed..haha

That rice cooker...poor thing...anyways, it was older than me...time for it to go...


anghorkheng's Profile Picture
Ang Hor Kheng
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
My name is Ang Hor Kheng and I'm a hobbyist comic style illustrator based in Ipoh, Malaysia, who draws just about anything. What you'll find here is my interpretation of the world around me, both real or imagined. I always try to keep my lines simple and tight. I do hope you all can find something you like in my page, and if my art can inspire you somehow, all the better.

Just a little about me:
I've been drawing since I was 3 years old (that was as far as I can remember it) mainly doing comic stuff like X-men or Avengers...Favourite artists include Peter Konig, Jim Lee, Al Williamson, Jae Lee, John Buscema, Frank Frazetta. I haven't got the privilege to enter a formal art school (my mum wants me to s.t.u.d.y...), so I'm basically self-taught; observing carefully the beauty of our universe and drawing inspirations from it. I occasionally dabble in watercolor and digital art too, but my main passion is still good old traditional art, which I believe to be the best way to hone our skills as artists.
