Playing with gif avatars for a whileNew avatar! It's still me, don't worry
Twitter vs Instagram?Does anyone find Twitter or Instagram useful to post art? Do you have accounts on these platforms?I'm dusting off my accounts on these to get more art up on them. Any tips? How are they different in audience? Twitter: https://twitter.com/rubendevelaInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/rubendevela/

SapiensBeen reading Sapiens by Yuval Harari.It's been pretty good so far!My current takeaway is on how our human skills of storytelling and myth-making have been the most powerful directional force in history!

Game of Thrones Finale! (Spoilers!!!)Spoilers!vvvvCONFIRMED! R + L = JFinally! Here's a fan art made back when the HBO series was announced, and the speculation has been settled!
Darkest DungeonI've been having a lot of fun with Darkest Dungeon. I have some narrative issues in that the campaign doesn't really have a failure state (after a catastrophic failure you can start again from level 0) but the game itself is really good.

Warpspeed missiles inbound!I've been thinking about the Star Wars trailers.Why do spacecraft in Star Wars and some other Space Opera bother to drop out of warp for warfare? Is there any official reason?Imagine a hyperspace torpedo strike!

Commissions + UpdateEDIT: We were able to finally get my dad's death certificate. Thank you all so much for your kind words, encouragement and support and to everyone who have offered to help, I really appreciate it a lot. 💕I'm still accepting commissions, you can check the details below. Thank you!!! 💛***Thank you everyone so much for your thoughts, prayers and donations. Unfortunately dad did not wake up, he passed away last night. 😢We still owe a big amount of money from the hospital (around 11 grand) and they might not be able to release him or we won't be able to get his death certificate until we pay the bill. We're hoping that they would at least accept our promissory note but yea, I need to do something. I'm very thankful for all the donations that you guys have offered but I realized I can't really rely on it alone so I have decided to just open a new batch of commissions cause I really don't have any other choice. I'm gonna be accepting slots until I reached my goal s

F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit. There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).Here's a YouTube version. You'll have to turn your sound up. Sorry. You need:Daz StudioGenesis 8 Male and FemaleCross-FigureInstructions G8F to G8M:Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.Go to the Parameters tab. If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.Click on the tiny button at top left of this
Happy New Year!Hope you're all doing well!Sorry I haven't been around here at all! Been busy these past few months and I've found that dA stresses me out LOL. I feel like it brings out the worst in me and I definitely feel more relaxed since my time away from it. BUT I'd still like to come back and draw stuff here again eventually. I miss drawing pony stuff and the next gen characters and all that. So maybe soon! I know I'm definitely rusty but it'll be cool to see how much my style's changed I guess.Just thought I'd throw in a little update. You all know how 2017 went for me based on my journals but I'd like to hear about yours! Go ahead an comment some of the cool stuff you got to do this past year or maybe even the not so cool stuff. Anything! Go for it! I'm curious~Happy 2018 ✨
