     “I found her lying in one of the old Sharan portals a few days after the attack on your home. I did my best to make her comfortable, but the Warm Heal can only do so much and I’m no surgeon.”    He poked the fire, seemingly arranging his thoughts.    “She told me what happened to you and your sisters. That she had been trying to reach the Elemental Knights. But most of the portal network in Oria was destroyed during the war of The Fallen. We got as far south as we could but in the end she just ran out of strength. She spoke about you three a lot in the last few…”    He motioned with his head towards

    “You know?” Her soul blurted.    Kerri didn’t bother to respond. It was obvious he knew as did their mother; probably.    “You think she knew as well?”    The voice in Kerri’s head startled her until she remembered that here she and her soul were practically one person again. There was probably some strange interactions going on she was unaware of.    “Mother knew as well didn’t she?”    Arkaine nodded.    “We always knew you might be in danger, it was why she chose to live in that village. You were isolated from the world.”    Kerri thought about that for a s

     Kerri stirred to wakefulness and jerked her eyes open to dazzling daylight; memories of the attempted rape flooding her mind. She didn’t dwell on them, she didn’t want to remember. Unfortunately the night’s events had also taken their toll on her body and that wouldn’t let her forget. Her right hand was stiff, the inside of her head throbbed and her rib cage seemed heavy, the air wheezing from her lungs. Thankfully who ever saved her had propped her up to sleep on her left side. Her head on a pillow of some type to stop her collar biting into her neck. It took her a few moments to register that the thing keeping h

Do not work for free
I received an email soliciting artwork for the second volume of"The Fantasy Illustration Library: Gods and Goddesses”. The jist of it was:  Pick your god or goddess!  Make art for us!  After we get all the art, we’ll try to do a Kickstarter to produce the book and if we make enough money, we might pay the artists!  Don’t pay attention to the un-affordable nature of the book’s price point ($100) because we’ll totally pay you royalties!! This brand of “proposal” is predatory, dishonest, and frankly incompetent. (And art budget for an art book?? Who’d ever even think of that!) People who organize b

Online Endurance
Some little ball of faecal matter posted a comment on my profile, proudly announcing “Tom Preston finally left DA”, no doubt in an effort to stir something up. Now, I don’t know a huge amount about Tom Preston (AKA Andrew Dobson), I’m just aware of the sketchy details: he drew fetish stuff, he tried to deny it, he posted some incendiary journal entries and some people claim his art is no good. Excluding the denial part, that sounds eerily familiar to my online shtick. The only difference seems to be in our approach to faceless internet hate. Where TP appears to have taken it very, very personally, thus fanning the fl

A Beginner's Guide to Offering Commissions Online
*Edit 06/29/2017* Hi guys! It's been over 3 years since I originally wrote this guide.  I was just rereading today, and while I still agree with many of the core principals, there are some edits and updates I would like to make.  I am going to try and make an updated version sometime soon! I decided to write this journal because in the last month alone, I had about five young artists ask me this question in one form or another: "How should I go about offering commissions?"   This seemingly easy question can actually be quite difficult to answer.  The first time I was asked this question, I expected to write only a paragraph response.  I was

Tutorial Tuesday: Scan large pieces of art
Hey everyone! Long time no tutorial! So let's ease back in with a common problem a lot of new comic book artists have:  How do you scan a 11" x 17" piece of art?  Most comic book art boards are 11" x 17" however most scanners will only scan 9" x 12." This can be a problem. So allow me to show you how to scan in large pieces of artwork with a standard scanner, and make it look like you scanned it all at once. I'll be using photoshop CS3 in this example.  Other art software will probably work in a similar way, if not the exact same way.Step 1: Scan the art. Scan the top half and the bottom half sideways in your scanner. They'll look something l

You and Intellectual Law
This article originally appeared on --> http://io9.com/10-things-everyone-gets-wrong-about-intellectual-proper-1679011301 How well do you understand copyright and trademark law? When you travel about the Internet or make art, do you know what you are and aren't allowed to do, or do you have intellectual property myths stuck in your brain. We take a few claims we've seen time and again, and compare them to the law. A couple of notes before we get started: 1) You shouldn't take any of this as legal advice. In fact, you shouldn't be taking your legal advice from posts on the Internet. 2) The emphasis here is on US law. 3) It's important to

Is your Fan Art legal?
This journal is reproduced from http://io9.com --> http://io9.com/5933976/are-fan-fiction-and-fan-art-legal I did not write this originally. **************************************** Fan fiction and fan art are both enormous components of our popular culture, a way we retell our favorite stories just as humans have always retold myths and legends. But sometimes creators, publishers, and studios claim that works of fan art and fan fiction violate their copyright. So is that Supernatural fanfic you're working on legal, or should you worry about the lawyers coming a-calling? This is a question that gets asked a lot in the comments and warran
