I am not an articulate person. But I'll try.

Yours truly was born in 1981, Taipei, Taiwan.
Moved to Canada in 1993.
During the day, he's "Dextrose Phosphate": a recently-employed primary-care physician trying to look sharp while learning how to save lives. At night, he becomes "Sinistrose Phosphate": an amateurish busy-body who dreams of one day getting a hang at this "art" business.

... in my humble opinion, I need a lot of work on both sides... ^^;

More importantly... thanks a million for visiting my little proverbial hole in the wall (of the Internet). Stay a while, have some tea, leave a comment... maybe even start a conversation.

I'm not an articulate person, but I will most definitely try.

Current Residence: Ontario, Canada
Favourite genre of music: I will give anything a listen.
Operating System: Windows 10
MP3 player of choice: Windows Media Player
Shell of choice: ... Nautilus?
Wallpaper of choice: I don't have wallpaper, I have paint on the walls. :)
Skin of choice: My own, definitely. I'm born with it.

(And we have trash pandas...)

So, what are you waiting for? Come join the fun!!!
Swimming with pride
June is Pride Month. 
And this year, it seems that we have a few more reasons to celebrate than others. 

Most of the time, when it comes to the equal rights of all people, we tend to think we've come a long way when it comes to the LBGTQ+ community - in the Western world, at least. But this year showed us something different. This year we are reminded that what has been gained can be lost in an instant. The precarious situation in the US showed us that even when we have made large strides towards equality, it can be lost in the light of social upheaval, civil unrest and religious zealotry. It shows that we should never sit on our laurels. And it means that our fight is not over. 

This year we have learned that the will of one person can make a difference, too. I am from Taiwan, and I have to say, I have no love for the current incumbent president. But, if there's going to be a legacy from her presidency that I am going to remember her by, it's that she has passed a bill to allow same sex marriage despite all protests to the contrary. We're the first in Asia to do so, and that's saying something. So this year... join me as we join hands to march forward to face all the trials and tribulations that come ahead. Sure, it's going to be tough swimming up against the stream. But at least if we all do so together, one day we'll get there.

Fan Art Week

If you ask me, there's something wonderful about fan art. It's a way for a fan artist to share their love for a character while paying tribute to the original artist. It's also a nice way for the budding artist to explore the extent of their creativity and skills in a usually nice and supportive environment. New artists tend to find their footing in fan art so that they can spring forward to create something of their own.

But if you are like me, it's not quite enough to try to copy what the original artist has done before. Some of the best fan art out there is a combination of the creativity and ingenuity of both the original artist and the fan artist. With that being said, how do you take your fan art to the next level? How do you achieve the best blend of originality and homage?

Well, I'm glad you asked. Here are a few ways you can get yourself started.

See? Listen to Obama!

1. Shape it up!

One of the most distinctive aspect of a person's art work is their take on the human form. You can have the hyper-muscular "hero" body type of the Marvel and DC universes, or you can have the highly stylized "humanoid" body type of Saturday morning cartoons. There is also everything else in between. A great way to start spread your wings to soar higher is to change up the fundamentals, in this case, change up the original artist's take on the human anatomy into something that is all your own.

Sailor Moon, Naoko Takeuchi, 1991-present

Sailor Moon! by Mintykoi-Art Sailor Moon by Shilozart Bad Bun Sailor Moon (shirt on Teepublic) by MagicstormFrostfire Sailor Moon by CMorilla 
Sailor Moon by Ian-Frank-W Sailor Moon and Flowers by Molnja
And all the different takes on her by changing up the anatomy...

2. Mix it up! 

Crossovers are always fun. Another way of upgrading your fan art is to attempt creating a crossover between two characters. They can come from all sorts of weird and wonderful places including official crossover events. One example of a crossover could be The Smash Brothers series; it's a giant crossover dream come true, but isn't the only official crossover. Marvel had an official crossover event with the "Attack On Titan" characters back in 2014 and it is, for the lack of a better word, pretty marvellous. Your love of the fandom(s) and your imagination is the only limit in creating a crossover. There is so much you can achieve by opening the door to another dimension. 

Game of Thrones... 
YGO/GoT- Kisara Targaryen, Mother of Dragons by AnaPaulaDBZ Daenerys Stormborn, Mother of....Yoshis? by MKDrawings The Ironborn by FredrikEriksson1 GoT crossover by MilicaClk
A Game of Ricks by cactuarZrule Ice King of the White Walkers by TheLivingShadow House Puffratheon by RubberRabbit2 [MM] 'LOUD HOUSE' Style: Ramsay + Lola get Lindsey by Mast3r-Rainb0w
... meets everybody else. 

3. Stand it up!

Anthropomorphism is the way to see inanimate objects (usually animals) and giving them human-like qualities. It is another great way to expand your fan art repertoire that challenges your ingenuity. How to re-imagine an otherwise non-humanoid figure into something that is humanoid would be a challenge for you, but it will also show off your love for the medium. It's also a great way to practice anatomy and developing a new way of looking at your favourite characters. So... it's a win-win situation, no matter how you slice it.

[HUM.] Hum. B-2 Spirit by MariaNya54 Jigglypuff Humanized by yaminokuni DKT header - Teostra - Monster Hunter by Amayensis-Fireheart
From pocket monsters to "upstanding" citizens... ;) 

4. Spin it off!

I like to call this one the "re-creation" process. Sure, someone might call it "OC creation", but I see it in a slightly different light. You see, anyone can create an OC, but to really "re-create" an character set in a specific fandom means to have an intimate understanding of the fandom and how character from there are created in the first place. Only after knowing all of the details can one convincingly and believably create a character that, although fan-made, feel like they should have been in the original series in the first place. That calls for a lot of love and dedication to the fandom and a lot of creativity to spin it off in your own direction. And when done well, it can be very rewarding.

Gemsona - Jade by beaconoflights Honey Quartz Ref Sheet by Tia-Moon78 Forest Fire Jasper: WW + Pearl by Gumsh00s
A smattering of authentic-looking Steven Universe "re-creations."

There are multiple ways to express your love for a fandom and fan art is a great place where many people start. When we grow as artists and fans, sometimes it's not just about how much you love the original material, but also what you can do with it. After all, it's the love of the fans that has kept a lot of series going (we're looking at you, Doctor Who!). The more creative the fans are, the more longevity a series has. So... expand your horizons and develop your skills as artists. Above all, do it for the love!!!

Good luck! :w00t:

Taking Your Fanart To The Next Level
All things considered, fan art has a special place in my heart. And I have to say, I've learned a lot while attempting to draw fan art. (I am still working on the clothing folds, dammit!!! :shakefist: ) I know I can't be alone in this struggle to get better, though. So... I've gathered a little bit of experience, intelligence and lessons that I have gathered from other folks on this path... and I've decided to put together a small list of suggestions to help both you and I in upgrading our fan art game. 

Let me know what you think! :D
