Hi, ....Don't got much to say, but I felt like it was time for a new journal ^^:

If you like you can follow me on instagram:
www.instagram.com/dreamchaserart/
or at my facebook page:
www.facebook.com/dreamchaser.art.5/

I am way more active there ^^;;
It has been a while since I posted anything here right? Lately I even forget Deviantart exists XD How are things going for all of you?
I am doing well. I am happy to say that my manga " heartlandstories:Robocity" has sold out! :D It went so fast. the books were gone within 3-4 months. Now I am working on the second book. I have the story and storyboards finished but for the remaining few days that are left in 2015....I am taking a little break from it and then will continue working on it in 2016.
I also hope that I can create more drawings and full on colour illustrations in 2016. I feel like I hardly did any this year...sigh :/ well...I have no lack of inspiration so there's that :D but as usual...it's time that I lack.

For those who are interested; A few months ago I also opened my own patreon page wich you can find here: www.patreon.com/dreamchaserart… with your help I can be able to bring my ideas and projects to life. :)

I wish you all very happy holidays!

Aright! After a long time of contemplating about this and checking out how it all works I have opened a Patreon page
www.patreon.com/dreamchaserart

Patreon is a site where you can support artists you like creating stuff that you love. It works a little like an ongoing Kickstarter - the pledges start much lower, and the rewards (prints, tutorials, original art, commissions...) are ongoing, too.

It's a dream of mine to be able to work as an artist full-time. Patreon gives me the chance to try if it can work. If you can imagine supporting me - starting as low as 1$ per month - head over and see what's in store for you in return!

This is still very experimental, and if you have any more good ideas for rewards or stuff to do and share in the patrons' feed, please let me know!

I am kinda late writing about it here, however I have been very busy recently because of the publication/release of my comic: Heartland stories:Robocity wich debuted at the animecon last month. It is now available in shops all over the Netherlands and Belgium ( both offline and online stores) The comic is in dutch so I will be writing in dutch again from here on out. I do plan to have it released on another language in the future ( i am looking at german or english) so if you are interested, feel free to like the facebook page of my comic for future news updates :) www.facebook.com/heartlandstor…

De strip is te koop in allerlei zaken online en offline zoals bol.com, de fnac, stripspeciaalzaken, de bruna etc. Maar uiteraard verkoop ik ook een aantal exemplaren in mijn eigen etsy shop, die ik dan ook direct voor je kan signeren :)

Mocht je graag een gesigneerd exemplaar in je bezit willen hebben, dan kan dat via mijn webshop hier:www.etsy.com/nl/listing/238879…

Mis hem niet! ;)

This upcoming weekend I will be attending the biggest animeconvention in the Netherlands. who else is coming?
I will be there with my own stand, but sitting alongside the dark dragon books stand who is the Publisher of my manga book " heartlandstories: robocity" wich will also make it's debut on that convention :)
During the dutch manga awards i will also hold a small presentation about my comic...wich i am quite nervous for >_<;;

So if you are visiting....please stop by to say hi :) I will also give away  the last few remaining small promo/art booklets for anyone who buys a copy of my comic :)

I would first like to thank everybody who has wished me a happy birthday ^^ thank you guys and gals haha.

The following message will be about the pre order of the dutch language version of my comic "heartland stories: Robocity" so I will be writing in dutch from here on. Sorry ^^;

Heb je interesse in een exemplaar van mijn eerste hardcover strip " robocity"? En wil je er ook een gratis gelimiteerde print bij? Dat kan! Je kunt nog pre orderen tot 31 mei! even voor de duidelijkheid hieronder nogmaals hoe het werkt:
1: je stuurt een bericht naar het volgende email adres: dreamchaserart@gmail.com met daarin je naam en hoeveel exemplaren je zou willen.
2: je krijgt van mij een bevestiging per email met verdere informatie.
3: Je hoeft van te voren niet te betalen. Betaling vind pas plaats wanneer het boek daadwerkelijk gedrukt is ( in juni)
4: na betaling word het boek met de prent naar je toegestuurd, of kun je de bestelling op komen halen op een van de beurzen waar ik aanwezig zal zijn.
5: elke print en boek zal ook worden voorzien van een handtekening :) emoticon

Mochten er nog vragen zijn, dan hoor ik dat graag!

Hello everyone.

For the past few years I have been working really hard at my comic "Robocity" wich was published in the (short lived) Dutch comic magazine named Strips2go. After the magazine quit, I decided to continue my comic and finally after a lot of hard work, I will have it published in a few months. It will be my first professionally published book wich I am very excited about.

The full title of my comic is " Heartland Stories: Robocity" Heartland stories is the name of a possible series that I might make of this. Robocity is the title of the story that is presented in this book itself. It is a self contained, completed one-shot story that takes place in a steampunk like fantasy world.  If you like steampunk and fantasy, then this comic might be for you ^^ If you are not a fan of steampunk, don't worry, this comic does feature colours instead of the brown only colour pallette that is found in many steampunk stories, no top hats, no goggles, no victorian-ness but instead, just my own style and idea of how I like to create a steampunk world.....it does feature a lot of robots though......but robots are fun...don't try to admit it hehehe ;P

Although the comic will be published in Dutch language only at first, I will definately have it published in English in the future as well and maybe in different languages as well if there is enough interest :)

You can follow the progress of my comic and any news related to it on it's official facebook page. It currently has 200 followers and counting. Once it reaches 400 followers, I will do a little give away ;)

Ahem! first: a happy new year and I wish you guys all the best and creativity in the new year!

Sorry to start this year on a bit of a downer  though ^^;  but I have been notified a while ago that some artworks of mine were used by this Wholesale manufacturer www.salesmanb2b.com/ Mainly their game of thrones and star wars chibi metal alloy charms. When checking the site, I suspect that they also use artwork from other people. After checking around google I even found a few  journals on deviantart from other artists that had their art stolen by them and warning others. This is one of the journals: celsa.deviantart.com/journal/O…

wich is why I decided to put it on here. If you create fanart, you might want to check their site out as well. I suggest especially taking a look at the charms and keychains. If you notice fanart from other artists, please let them know as well.

Hi everyone! My new artbook "" Monochromia""  is finally done! ^^ :) :) :) ;) I received my proof copy yesterday and it came out way more beautiful than I even expected! I am so happy! I am currently having the books printed as I type this. For those who would like to pre order a copy before oktober 11th, you will also get  fee coloured min promo artbook about me and my work :)

You can now place an order in my etsy store for it. only 100 copies will be made so once they are gone, they are gone forever!

If you are going to visit FACTS and would like to pre-order a copy, please send me a message and I will let you know what the price without the shipping costs.

I am  happy to announce that Edolie is out! Edolie is a story-oriented RPG made in association with Amaranth Games, and the fourth game made by Eridani games.  It is the first game of theirs that I provided artworks for. So what is it about?

All across the world of Edolie, people are gathering to celebrate Harvest, the biggest event of the year. Feasts and dancing will mark the passing of yet another generous year.
For Willow, it's a chance for her to travel to a neighbouring island to watch the festivals unfold, but this is going to be a Harvest unlike any that have come before.
Troubles from a dark past and conspiring events are about to be unleashed. A discovery is made far away that will bring everyone into danger... so why does nobody care?

If you are interested, please visit :iconeridanigames: for more information about the game and screenshots!
The game is available at
www.amaranthia.com/modules/ole…
and you can read more information at: www.eridanigames.com/forum/vie…

It was so much fun doing the artwork for this game ^^ I might even try doing a game all on my own....but it will take a while since I got a game of my own since I am so busy now >_<;; More news coming soon! peace!

Eventhough I hardly get any comments or reactions on my journals here on DA...I love how I am able to see how many people read my journals anyways, so here is another entry again hahaha :D

This time I wanna talk about my Youtube channel that I have been neglecting a bit too much. I am amazed that despite my inactivity there, I still receive new followers daily. So I should make more use of that and start being more active there...I would love to be on the level there like the artist Mark Crilley someday. Making lots of tutorial and time lapse videos. Unfortunately due to bad equipment and still not enough time, it will take a while buuuut..

What I actually wanted to ask here was...If I would do a tutorial or time lapse video...what would you like me to make a tutorial video about? Or what would you like to see me draw?

 

In case you do not know about my youtube channel yet..here's the link, I already have a few tutorial and timelapse video's there.: www.youtube.com/user/bluemonik…

maaaaaaaaan...i am really running out of idea's when i try to title my journals here XD has that happen to any of you as well?

Anyways, I have some news related to my art as usual :)

Last month the very first book was professionally published for wich I was able to do the coverartwork for :D!! The book is called "Yougian en het nest van de Harpij" ( Yougian and the harpy's nest) it is only available in Dutch now in various bookstores and online shops BUT!!!! it will also be available in English later next year so I will keep you updated when they publish the english version of it as well :) here is a link to the book on the publishers website ( sorry it is in dutch for now ^^; ) www.zilverspoor.com/boeken_Lat…


Another book has been published this month wich also has a piece of artwork of mine as the cover. It is only available in Dutch now and I am not sure if they will publish it in English later but when they do I will let you know. The book is called "Demonenbloed; De Woudzee kronieken" ( Demonblood the woodsea chronicles) and it is a fantasy book :) You can see the book here and also photo's of when they presented the book for the first time to the public :) (in dutch...) www.uitgeverijmacc.nl/index.ph…


But I can hear you non-dutch speakers think: This is all very nice and all but we cannot read any of the books and stories you have done cover artwork for :/  no worries. I also did some small artworks for a few short stories who were written by a friend of mine and they are in English. What's even better for you guys, is the fact that she is offering her short stories on her website for E-books and computers FOR FREE! so check them out here: leoconnacht.com/freebies.html I am curious to hear what you think of her stories :) you can also send her feedback by email.
