Looking for some simple feedback. I posted a simple survey on my site, totally anonymous. Take a look: jonathanpriceart.net/a-little-…
Pay a visit to the Dualmask Arcade!Not a whole lot there at the moment, but I'm trying something out on my website. More details here: http://jonathanpriceart.net/new-arcade-added-site/
SarahahEver hear of Sarahah.com? Apparently it's this site that lets people send anonymous messages (read: constructive criticism...hopefully) to people through a simple messaging service. I made an account just to try it out. https://dualmask.sarahah.com/
Might be fun to try out sometime.
All done...now time to get started.Over the weekend, I drew, inked and colored image #100 for my Random Practice Babes art book. I'm now in the process of putting it all together so I can sell it digitally and in print, particularly the latter since it's far less likely people offline would have seen the sheer number of images from the book I've already posted online, heh.
I will most likely sell the print version through IndyPlanet until I can afford to print my own copies and sell them directly, and digital copies will be available through Amazon, Gumroad and whatever else will let me (some of the pics are in the realm of mature content, but none of it qualifies as porn, IMO).
The biggest issues I'm dealing with now are designing a cover and coming up with a title. I wonder if I should even bother being clever. I've never been tremendously good at titles...
Updates and StuffI've only got 18 more images to create, and then I'll have finished making art for my 100 Random Practice Babes art book plan. Of course, I still need to make a cover and organize the content, but at least the hard part will be over. I'm hoping to be done by the end of the month, but if not, oh well.
Now, at present, I've shared over 70% of the content online, because I couldn't help it. But I never considered this project to be something that was going to make a whole lot of money anyway. I just wanted to do it, and now that it's near the end, I can make plans to get back to the artist I'm supposed to be.
I'm also going to stop trying to be something I'm not. The only way I can break my streak of indecision is to make different choices.
I know I want to work alone, I want to bring out my own characters and ideas, and I miss being a storyteller. So I'm making a solemn vow to put an end to random practice babes forever once this project is done (along with other things I've wasted my ti
Progress on the Jet Dancer gameI posted this on my Facebook pages (personal and art business) already, and I thought I'd share this here as well.
I've been working hard on my Jet Dancer game. I had to deconstruct a lot of it and put it back together in order to make it less messy. I wanted to talk about the gameplay that I've designed since I finally have Jet to a point where she doesn't feel sloppy and unpolished. I got rid of several superfluous attacks that were causing glitches and not benefiting the game much.
The vertical gauge that glows is Jet's power gauge. It fills up rapidly and certain attacks and moves drain it. Jet can only dash or fire her kick cannon (not shown) when the gauge is full, but most moves such as dashing, backflip and getting injured drain it.
Jet can now dash in the air, at a downward angle. It extends the length of her jump distance significantly when used properly. If you jump as soon as you dash, the energy is maintained and she can dash again out of the air. It's useful for getting a
Dualmask's RPBs on Patreon!https://www.patreon.com/Dualmask So I'm pulling the trigger on this. I'll be posting future black female warrior illustrations on my Patreon page first, and sharing layered .PSD files and, in the future, process videos as well as giving Patrons the opportunity to provide input on future designs. Free and discounted commissions will be available to Patrons as well.
I hope you'll consider supporting me and my work!
Suicide Squad So my wife and I celebrated 14 years of marriage yesterday and decided to impromptu take off work and go see Suicide Squad.
I thought it was overall a fun movie, though the beginning felt rushed. I liked the banter, thought Will Smith, Margot Robbie (Harley stole the show) and even Jared Leto did a great job in their roles. It had more characters than it needed IMO (Captain Boomerang? Why?) and I had issues with the ending, but I enjoyed the film nonetheless.
Did you see it? What did you think?
Personal DeadlineI realize I need to be a lot more professional when it comes to this project of mine. I've been way too lackadaisical with my approach, just drawing girls on a whim, getting done whenever I get done. The last girl took almost a week of off and on noodling...at that rate it's going to take nearly two years to be done with this project.
One of the themes of the "Product not Project" approach was a time line, something like no less than three months (enough time for serious effort) but no more than one year (so the project doesn't drag on forever). I posted girl #1, The Rider, back sometime in May, so it's been about two months, and I'm on #17 now. So I decided to give myself a deadline... If I can't get to #30 by August 15, 2016, then I need to reconsider this project.
"Finished, not perfect" is another theme of the project I have latched onto, so I need to focus on images I can complete more quickly. Less backgrounds perhaps. Simpler ideas...gotta figure out a way to
A major screw up. UPDATE[UPDATE] When I searched for PhotoRec as suggested by wbd I came up with something called Wondershare, which is much the same thing. I downloaded it, and ran it, and it was able to recover a great many of the lost files. The problem is it cost money to actually enable me to save the files, and most of the .PSDs were corrupt. I was able to recover a great many other things, including the sprites I made for my Jet Dancer game and many comic files.
I also found a program that can recover corrupt PSDs, but it too is pay software and I'm going to have to wait before I can buy more. But it seems the technology does exist for me to be able to recover what I have lost.
Just thought I'd share...I was in the middle of trying to create a recovery disk for Windows 10 because my old desktop PC is on the verge of giving up the ghost. I put in an SD card in my other computer to create the disk with...but it wasn't until I finished the process that I realized I'd put my main SD card in the drive..

All Good Things Must Come To An End...It's been 5 years since I started work here at DeviantArt, at the time I had spent two years dreaming that one day I would wear that $ in-front of my username.
When offered the chance, I assumed I must be dreaming. Even during the surreal moment of being sat on spyed's sofa with Pachunka I was still pinching myself to make sure it was real.
But here I was, living the dream.
When I joined DeviantArt I knew nothing, heck I didn't even know what a QA tester was when randomduck offered me the position.
I could barely code, I just happened to have a knack of breaking things.
But since those days I've grown up and I've learned a lot.
I worked my way from testing to development, I even fixed a few things along the way!
I've been to college, and in four weeks I will finish university and throughout all this DeviantArt has supported me.
For all this I'd like to thank DeviantArt and everyone there, without whom I would not be where I am today.
But as the title states, all g

DEVIANTART LEAST ACTIVE: I just thought I'd drop a journal for all the new followers who've stopped by lately. Though deviantart is close to my heart, It's no longer my go to social media page.

But truth is, I update way more frequently on my others, so consider following me there ok?

Product Spotlight: Postcards and Greeting Cards
Who doesn't love getting mail? Too often these days the only people that write to us are the ones we owe money to. It has become a rare surprise to get something personal in the mail. Why not send a card to that friend in that town where you used to live? Why not send them an amazing piece of art along with it?
You can do both together with either a Postcard or a Greeting Card!
Our postcards are printed on heavy card stock that every good postcard should have. The front of the postcard will have a highly detailed vivid print that looks so good it should be framed.
The back of the postcard is extremely minimal, with the left side blank to put your thoughts, and the right side pre-lined for the address. There is even a small rectangle ready for a stamp to be placed!
Of course, as artists, you may wish to use all of that white space to dra

ESP: Berserker Virus (Scripts)I think I won't be able to continue the story for ESP for a while... so I decided to show the script of one of the important parts of the first chapter here. This script contains the information of "Berserker virus" in my comic which most people mistake it with "Zombie virus". This may seem like a spoiler but since this isn't actually about storyline, just information, I think it's fine. It's gonna be a while to see the comic form of this.
Okay, here it goes. If you find any grammar mistakes, please tell me so I can correct them.

Ok, guys, I finally decided to try something besides trades and commissions this time! I've been meaning to start some sort of a contest for a while, but I didn’t want it to be another Draw-the-character one, so I guess I found a solution!
It’ll be the second anniversary of my “Heroes come back” comic in February and how to celebrate it better than with you, guys? Yeah, I know- Two years is not much, but it means a lot to me, so why not?
Now, without further ado-
You gotta draw one of your favorite scenes from the “Heroes come back” trial (CHAPTERS 1-4);
