Please Donate! + Premium Brush Set incomingHey guys!
I've been working on a big project lately, in particular a premium brush set that will go commercial in the near future. I'm working on a personal website at the moment to launch this premium pack on, and I'm asking you guys to help me with that. I'm a broke student, and investing in this project will take some time and money. Please feel free to make a donation to help me deliver the stuff you guys want to see!
Please donate to support me! https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=W6KBUUPS8QEH6

2 Years!Hey guys!
I just found out that I once logged in for the first time on this site on July the 8th, 2009. Since then I filled this page with all my creations and shared them with all you amazing people, for more than 2 years now! More than 45.000 people visited this site, visitors from 159 different countries. My first brush set, Midnight City, got viewed more than 100.000 times (and downloaded on other sites by a lot more). All these figures tell one story: you guys are awesome. All those comments I get every week make me feel relieved and proud, and I can't thank you guys enough for all the support. These past 2 years are just the beginning, as I will continue supplying you guys with awesome resources. I'm also thinking of setting up my own site (help appreciated ), so please stick around!
Again, thanks for being awesome!
Jacob | ShiftyJ

My Second Daily Deviation!Hey guys!
As a part of Vector Week on dA, I've been asked to kick off with showcasing one of my brush sets as an ' example of vector work'. All of my brushes have vector shapes in them, but one of them is just filled with them: Infinity Brush Set. I chose to feature this one, because it is in my opinion a good example of using vector shapes alone for a brush set.
Here's the link to my second daily dev:
Big thanks go to:

1 Year!Hey creatives!
My stay at deviantART has lasted one year now! This site has been my main stage for showcasing the work I make, and has connected me to some great people. In total, 30.000 people from over 150 countries have viewed my page! That's awesome! I want to thank all those who support me and like my work. I will be here on dA for a long time to come, and I'm currently thinking of launching my own site/blog, so stay close!
Thanks guys! Off to a new year of creativeness!
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.
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Instructions 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 ✨
