Recently, I found an artist, who does very good drawings. Her name is beajination We did an art trade and she made a wonderful picture of my OC Martha for me. Please check out her gallery.
An artist worth a lookToday, I would like to point out the works of :iconAliciadrawsbecause: I'm following her works for a few months now, and I have to say, her drawing style is very unique. Over the last weeks her style improved even more and I'm really looking forward to see future pictures by her.
Here's a small overview over her pictures:
Please go to her site, have a look on her works and support her!

How to make a comic - Page and Panel Layoutage Layout
Maybe the most important step in doing a comic is the page layout. With the page layout, you combine the script with the pictures. Here you plan what will actually by visible in your comic. Here’s the page layout for the first page as well as the updated script.
In this phase, you might do several slight changes to the scrip as sometimes, you ideas can’t be put into a panel the way you imagined them in the first place. A panel might be overloaded, some details to small. Maybe you have planned too much text for a single panel and need to split it. Don’t expect your original script to go smoothly into the layout.
Panel Style and Order
There are different comic styles in the world and each has typical panel styles.
The Western styles – American comics and Franco-Belgian comics from Europe - usually have a rather rigid grid of three, four or mo
How to make a comic - Character referencesIn your comic, there will be (most likely) some main characters and some minor characters, which you will have to draw very often. For these characters, it pays out to do a reference picture or reference sheet. You would like to give your main characters an attire, that won't change much over the course of the comic. This attire will help your readers to identify your character. Just think of Superman's blue attire with the red cape.
Of course, you can also choose to put your character in different clothes, as they certainly have different sets in their warderobe. That is perfectly fine.
On the other hand, if you are used to draw a character in a certain way, drawing her or him will get much faster. It's for you to decide.
In the reference picture, I also add a set of colours for various parts of the body and the clothes. This is especially helpful when working digitally, as most photoshopping programs have a function to pick up a colour from an existing digital picture. For my Martha
How to make a comic - The scriptThe next step in creating a comic is the script. In the script, I write down all the dialogue between the characters but also describe what they are doing. It might remind you of your lessons in literature at school, when you studied plays. And yes, the form I used for the script is the same as used for plays.
New Project: How to make a comic - The story ideaAs a new project, I’ll be working on a new comic featuring my genie Martha and two other characters by :iconcuria-dd: and :iconposeme: I won’t tell much about the story yet.
But I plan to document my progress in my journal, giving little previews and basically describing the steps towards the finished comic. By reading my journals, as they progress, you can learn about possible steps towards making a comic. I hope I can help those interested to do their own comics.
First step is to write down the story concept in headwords.
Here's an overview over the story. It's in German, but it will give away all of the story. Be warned.

I hate manga and anime.Recently, someone told me that she likes Anime and Manga because they are avenues for limitless imagination, and without rules.
I couldn't believe what I was hearing, because my own experience is utterly opposite: Anime and Manga are quite possibly the least creative, most rule-infested genre of art. I can speak with some authority on this subject because I've lived in Japan (the home of anime and manga) for seven years.
In fact, I OWN some rulebooks about manga and anime, despite avoiding that genre with the same dedication with which a diabetic avoids sugar. I've also watched interviews with manga artists as they discuss the rules of manga/anime, and hung out on a Manga-for-artists website before discovering DeviantArt.
Consider the following rule set, and ask yourself a) is it true? b) what sort of stifling rulebook and lifestyle forced these artists to stay well within the rules, only trying to break away from the pack by taking the rules of cuteness, sexiness, violence, and good-v
you can reply here or you can send me a note for a commission, whichever you prefer.
payments are done in advance and if i can't complete your commission for whatever reason you will be refunded.
if you ask for a refund after the commission is posted or while im in progress of the commission you won't be refunded and i will edit it to make it as closed to what you wanted. if i havent started yet and you would like a refund i will likely be able to refund it.
I will make a comment to reply to otherwise you might be missed, so please respond to the right comment.
prices are what they are for a reason

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and

Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!

July Commissions!Important to Commissioners
Hi everyone! To all my commissioners, please tell me if you wish to be contacted here, your email or some other way you feel it's more comfortable. I'm still awaiting an answer for many design approaches and that is delaying the work schedule. If there are sudden changes like leaving on vacations or need to postpone the project please feel free to tell me.
Remember that if I don't get an answer after 7 days I send the last design approach I consider the project abandoned.
My commissions are always open, I just ask you to be patient because I work on them as ideas come by. I try to finish them as fast as I can but I give priority to quality over speed.
Those interested please read this:
