hey gang, I've been over at Instagram lately, posting daily sketches, junk food, life things, and nonsense, please visit instagram.com/duss005 to find me! be well,- dustin
rest in peace Francis Tsaii havent posted here in a while, but i really dont know where else to talk about this. I met francis001
on deviant art years ago, we bonded over our love of the arts, and once in a while, cars.
Life, over time took me away from here, but we kept in touch over facebook, eventually, again, family and day to day life obligations took me away from that as well and i fell out of touch with Francis, but i knew his condition had progressed further. One time we chatted briefly over facebook, and i knew he was typing using his eye movement. i did not know if i wanted to put a strain on him more than he already had, but i knew Francis was not the type that would let something like that keep him from living. even if it was just keeping in touch with friends. I now feel very regretful, for letting work get in the way of keeping the company of friends.
He was.. insanely talented. Looking at the quality of the work he's done, it's easy to say he's reached a level of skill in his short lived life, t
Devious Journal Entrysuper duper thanks to AngelTovar for kicking me a subscription! i still wont change my screen name though haha! Thanks a bunch buddy, keep on rockin!
no more facebookI posted a final update on my Facebook about a month ago that I was deactivating it along with anything associated with Facebook. I dont think everyone saw the update, so i've been getting messages from some folks.
Many people asked if I had a bad experience on there, or was harnessed or something, but no, nothing that exciting. I simple just couldnt keep up. Between drawing and writing every waking minute I have and trying to manage my time with my kids, and just finding time to sleep, it became a task rather than fun.
I've never been good at social media, and with the increasing amount of workload, it became one more email to check in the morning, one more argument to side with, and one more contribution to be guilted into. It also opened up doors to people who do not know me at all ( or cared to), contacting me for reasons that shouldn’t involve me in the first place. Much like twitter, it makes you become too easily accessible to anyone and anything, at anytime.
thanks for the birthday wishes guys.checked my messages after months of being away and found screens full of Birthday wishes, thank you so much guys.. i totally got caught up with life and work and neglected my account. but you folks still bothered to check here. thank you
this new journal editor is also strange to me as well, it looks like you can do a lot more than type words like before.
thanks thanks!Hey guys, thanks for all the great birthday wishes, making me feel guilty for not updating and stuff. I've been away because of... well, life. mostly due to an immense increase in deadlines ever since Batman: Lil Gotham went twice a month. I basically went from painting 10 pages a month, to 20 pages a month + other freelance gigs outside of comics.
I realize regular books are ALL 20 pages, but to put it in perspective- it went from just penciling about 20-30 pages a month ( JUST pencils) + a few painted covers, to penciling and then painting ( or as my buddy Tu likes to say " if you call that painting" ) and also, co-writing 20 pages a month. It's been very very straining on my life/schedule. That and the simple fact that my my kids have gotten to the age where they require more of my time than ever, makes it almsot impossible to get have any kind of breathing room in between deadlines and sleep. I've been on tumblr more than anything because its where i can just camera/phone som
now i HAVE to post moreJust found out my one of my favorite editors, Ben Abernathy :iconBen-Abernathy: just joined deviantArt! the short history of us? he was the editor behind my FIRST project with DC back in 2000 even though i did not know it! When i landed the Wildcats Version 3.o, he took over as my editor and guided me thru the years- putting me on covers and allowing me to really try different things, explore design and try painting covers for monthly books.
Id' say without him taking the chance on me, i'd never have gotten this far in my career, and pushing the portfolio i have today with all the things i can provide. Editors like these are what the industry needs more of. Editors to guide talent and give them opportunities to better themselves, and in turn- hopefully introduce new things to the medium, not tell them what to do to just please the bigger man in charge. Our last project together was Justice League Beyond in which we worked together to develop a better way to create comics that are creat
NOT in artist alley at Wondercon, and i am EXCITEDHey everyone, WonderCon http://www.comic-con.org/wca is this weekend in my backyard at the Anaheim Convention center!

thanksI wanted to thank the online community for helping spread the word of our Lil Gothams book last week. With the help of Tumblr,Twitter, Deviant Art, Facebook, and whatever other social network outlets there were, we were able to give the book the launch we needed to prove that a book like this can work. By Friday morning last week, just two days after we launched, Batman: Lil Gotham was on the top ten selling list of over 12 countries http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/11/02/comixlogy/ , and was the top downloaded book from DC Digital. That's not a huge deal if you're any mainstream book, but for our title- i feel that's a huge step towards something that can be great.
So thank you everyone- from the casual readers, to the die hard core batman fans, anyone that's never given digital comics a chance until now, and anyone that's ever commented, mentioned, and supported my work. Your support is very, truly, appreciated.

The Breaking Point: End-stopping and EnjambmentIntroduction
The most noticeable difference between poetry and prose is often the use of line breaks in poetry. When the line break comes at the end of a phrase, sentence, or clause, the line is end-stopped. End-stopped lines often end with punctuation like periods/full stops, commas, semi-colons, and colons. When the line break disrupts the phrase, sentence, or clause, the line is enjambed. The French word enjambement, from which 'enjambment' is derived, means 'straddling,' and appropriately, the phrases straddle two or more lines.
The first four lines of Shakespeare's "Sonnet 18" are an example of end-stopped lines:
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Walt Whitman also uses end-stopped lines in "Song of Myself (I)":
I Celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,

How long have you been drawing (digitally)?
I started drawing digital art for myself and other people on gaiaonline (an avatar forum community) since 2005-6 starting with MSPaint, and scanned pen drawings that I coloured in Open Canvas. It gave me tons of practice and chances to work on developing my drawing and colouring style. Also, I've always enjoyed seeing people's reactions when they receive art, as it inspires me to continue drawing.
If you're really curious, you can check out my old photobucket account that has tons of old art XD
