Fan Expo 2014 + Comic release

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 23, 2014, 9:02 PM

Hey peeps,

Just letting everyone know that just like the past 3 years, I’ll be attending Fan Expo Toronto on August 28th-31st.
This year, different that last ones, I’ll be sitting with my art group From a Hat

Running along side the days of the con, me and my friends will be releasing our first collaborative comic. We’ll be posting a 8 page story each day and the final two pages like a week after the con.
We don’t have a title for it but I can promise it’ll be extremely cool. You can find the pages, starting next Thursday, on our tumblr and Facebook ;

So if you’re in the Toronto area or at least willing to make the trip definitely try to make it out to see us.

Here’s a map showing where we’ll be Fan Expo 2014 by ParisAlleyne

Wizard World Chicago and Fan Expo 2013

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 14, 2013, 2:05 PM

So I just got back from WW Chicago on Monday and I have to say I really enjoyed the con. The organization was a little weird and I think that I may have suffered a little bit because of my table placement but I don't really know for sure. Anyway, i hope that I'm able to go back next year and meet more cool people. This year I was able to meet :iconharpokrates: :iconjordanmichaeljohnson: and :icontimareezadel:

Moving on

Next week starting Thursday I'll be showing at Fan Expo Toronto. If you're in the area I'd love to meet you, you can find me at table A246.

I graduated and started a blog

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 7, 2013, 10:38 AM

If you can make it past the first paragraph, it actually gets interesting.

So I realize I haven't posted one of these in the longest time. So to get right to the most important point, I graduated from college. I was studying Illustration for Sequential Arts which basically means comics and manga (but mostly comics). It was a three year program and I really can't explain how much I've progressed while there, and not just because of the classes, I also owe a huge deal to my classmates who gave me a new perspective on the way other people work and honestly some people to compete with. I'm not going to go into much detail about it because there are a lot of negatives that go along with it but if anyone is willing to come to Toronto, Canada to become a better comic artist, feel free to ask me for some info.

So now for the actually interesting part (in my opinion that is):

I've started work on my personal comic. Well actually I started like 1.5 years ago but now I'm actually drawing it. It's going to be less of an ongoing comic and will be more of a graphic novel. I'm still working on the first part which I'll be using as a mini preview book the cons I go to next year.
I'm not exclusively working on that book though, I'm currently working on a 6 page story for a writer in England and a 24 page comic for these two Toronto writers.

Basically it's interesting to me because it's my first announcement of me doing some professional work on my dA.
I'll try to post some shots of what I'm doing but of course I first need consent from the writers.

Also my friends from school and I have started an art blog together. It's called From a Hat, and it's your typical group art blog where we draw a new character every week to see it in our different styles.
We've done 5 weeks so far, here are a couple pieces from :iconteshawndwyer: and myself
FaH- Yunalesca by ParisAlleyne<da:thumb id="375743720"/><da:thumb id="377591518"/> FaH- Magik by ParisAlleyne FaH- Metabee by ParisAlleyne

Find our tumblr here: fromahat and our facebook here: From A Hat if you wish to follow us

Okay so that's pretty much it, I'll open commissions again soon
Just a quick update

I'll post something new pretty soon

Youtube Videos

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 19, 2013, 5:41 PM

So it's been a while since I made a youtube video so I figured I'd do a quick  journal of my latest (and only) videos

ALSO, I'm really not sure to what make videos about other than colouring and the odd digital drawing
If anyone has any suggestions please let me know,
Could I do a tutorial on something? any part of my technique that anyone's curious about?

So anyway, here are my videos

How would you reboot the Marvel Universe?

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 8, 2013, 8:11 AM

Because I am a strong believer that Marvel should cut the crap and just start their universe over (or just give us a new cannon universe). Now the stories are just dull or really over the top stupid (except a few of course). So I'm asking you, given the opportunity, how would you reboot Marvel's Universe?

It can be anything, what would you change? What would you add? Who would you leave out? Where would you start?

Leave a comment below if you have one or just enjoy what others have to say (if anyone says anything at all)

I changed my username

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 17, 2013, 4:17 PM

I figured it was time to move on from my Young-Art monicker
it was something I came up with when I was 15 years old and I think that it represents a less matured and focused me
I hope that with this new name I can usher in a new stage in my art career closer to professional

So this is the end of Young-Art and the rebirth of myself without a made up name to stand behind

You can all call me Paris

Youtube Channel and Collabs

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 1, 2012, 2:49 PM

To the point, I posted my first youtube video of me colouring. It's of the colours for my Dragon Ball Z piece
I'll be posting more videos of me colouring there as well as my attempts at digital drawing and painting
You can check out my first DBZ video here

And on the second point about collabs
I'm gonna be putting my free busts on hold until the new year because I'm actually in the process of doing a series of collabs for my 20th Birthday
And those will most likely take up most of my time

So yeah that's it

25 FREE Busts *FULL*

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 11, 2012, 12:57 PM

Hey all, I've not posted a new journal in a while now (I don't count ones about cons) so I decided I'd give you something for free

I'm offering 25 FREE busts to anyone who names which character they'd like to see
Under the conditions that I know the character, if I don't know the character you can name another one but only if there's still space left but I'm not doing anyone that I don't already know
The busts will then be inked and possibly coloured

So between comics and manga/anime(or anything related to the two) name anyone
think of it like what :iconmarciotakara: and :iconrv1994: did recently

I'll start posting them after my 350th piece which will be kind of a big deal in my opinion

Okay well request away folks, I look forward to what you guys put

1. New 52 Joker
2. 90s Superboy
3. Scarlet Spider
4. Superwoman
5. Indiana Jones
6. Nemo (Not the fish)
7. Iron Fist
8. Slave Leia
9. Darth Vader
10. Bane
11. Black Panther
12. Invincible
13. Captain America
14. Deadpool
15. Nightwing
16. Anti-Venom
17. Spawn
18. Grifter
19. Thanos
20. Wonder Woman
21. Megaman
22. Scarlette
23. Rogue
24. Harley Quinn
25. Sonya Blade

*EDIT* Instead of just busts it's kinda changed into whatever I can fit on half of my 9x12 sketchbook page

I'll be splitting a table with my friend :iconandrewkwan: just like we did for Wizard World Toronto.

Hope to see someone from dA, the goal for next year: NYCC

Hey, this is just a quick thing saying that I realize I haven't been that active with anything besides :iconbattle-artist: pieces

I've had some things going on and I'd like to share them but it's late now and I'm gonna be busy for the next few days as I have been the past three weeks

So look out for a journal coming really soon
but if you are overly anxious you can check out my work on tumblr and my facebook…

Spider-man 50th Anniversary Tribute

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 24, 2012, 10:41 PM

So I'm trying to cook a couple things up for the 50th Anniversary of Spider-man but I need help
I may know a few myself but I want to know as many alternate costumes that he's worn without googling anything
so if you can help me out and just tell me anyones you think are obscure or are you favorites that you would like to see

I can't give anything to anyone for this but I can guarantee kudos to anyone that drops a seriously unknown costume
and when August comes I'll post multiple a day for the entire month

Thanks for the help

PS. There's a good chance I post these with maybe two in one picture

Commissions Now Open *OUT OF DATE, UPDATE SOON*

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 10, 2012, 8:15 AM

So this is just me finally putting out the journal I've been meaning to write for like two weeks now
and you've probably guessed what it's about; I'm opening up commissions

still at my, apparently, too low prices

So a basic rundown of what prices are looking like are

Pencils $10 (10 x #of additional character)
Venom Pencils by ParisAlleyne
Inks +$5
Doppelganger inks by ParisAlleyne
Celshading +$5
Weeklies- X-men Wolverine by ParisAlleyne
Soft shading +$10
Spider-man Hanging by ParisAlleyne
Simple background +$5
Edge the Ninja by ParisAlleyne
Complicated background +$10
BA- James Heller by ParisAlleyne

So the way it works is that the prices just add up for whatever you want
You don't always need inks for colours necessarily and still you might like extra characters without all the fuss of colours

Examples on how pricing would work:

9 Red Hulk by ParisAlleyne $25(Pencils, inks, celshading, simple bg)
Spider-man Pencils in Colour by ParisAlleyne $30(Pencils, soft shading, complicated bg)
BA- The Guyver by ParisAlleyne $40(Pencils, inks, soft shading, simple bg, one additional character)

Also if anyone is interested in getting their work coloured by me send me a note with the work and I'll send you a quote based on complexity
you can see some examples of my colour work here:…

also if you see any pictures you like in my gallery that you wanna use as an example I can give you a quote and please feel free to ask any questions

Weekly Inspirations 1

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 23, 2012, 11:50 AM

Hey I had this cool idea where I would share with you everyone the pieces that inspired me the previous week
I guess they'll be on Mondays
they will probably be repeats of artists because if they've done one that was inspiring then they definitely have the capacity to do multiple
check out the works and maybe find some new artists to check out and add them to your watch list to stay updated

So I'm not going to organize them into how they inspired me, it could be concepts, colour work, line work, inking technique or anything
there was just something in it that got me thinking

Here we go, this week's inspirations
:iconreza-ilyasa: just in general, some really amazing work livestream environtmet study by Reza-ilyasa livestream 'speed face 'doodle 1 by Reza-ilyasa mickey mouse by Reza-ilyasa blind sniper by Reza-ilyasa the Gollem by Reza-ilyasa
:iconkurunya:- canyon by Kurunya
:iconpacman23:- Batman Colors by pacman23
:iconrexlokus:- First Test - Superman by RexLokus
:iconmr--jack:- Grim by Mr--Jack
:iconjohnrauch:- Invincible 94 cover by JohnRauch Invincible TPB 16 cover by JohnRauch
:iconblondthecolorist:- Valen the Outcast #7a by BlondTheColorist
:iconkakete:- BA 09 - Molotov by Kakete (oh god, that's a sexy colour palette)
:iconandrewkwan:- The Last City 1 by AndrewKwan Specifically for motivating me to go ahead and start my comic, my three stories are now being worked on so thanks

And there you have it, a week's worth of inspirational, phenomenal art
It also marks the end to my weeklies, working two jobs, getting prints done and starting my personal comics I just don't have the time, I'll get back to them when school starts though so look out for them then

I'll still try to post weekly so we'll see

What's Popular this Year?

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 11, 2012, 3:29 PM

Hey Everybody,
Since I'm forever out of touch with the world and what people think are in I want to ask you all to help fill me in

So with Con season having already started I decided that I'd put forth all my effort into FanExpo for later in August
but I realize that I don't know what prints people want to see
so my happy, helpful h-amigos please let me know what games, movies, and comics people are gonna want to see
what YOU WOULD WANT to see and the Characters that everyone ALWAYS wants to see for my smaller prints

if you could help it's be greatly appreciated
and know that whatever I do for prints you all get to see on dA anyway (so it's like you getting some free art requests)
but they only get posted in the week before the con

Well I thank you all in advance and I continue to prepare for Wizard World Toronto that I'll be seated at this weekend alongside my friend, the one, the only :iconandrewkwan:

If you're in the area definitely check us out but show some love to his page (and some extra to mine too) if you can't make it
Table #2145 (Right across from Eric Vedder :icone-v-il:)

So I'll be back soon ready to drop my 300th piece
Stay Tuned and Enjoy the magic of life
(I used a lot of parentheses in the journal, sorry)
