Streaming UpdateHey, so I'm gonna start streaming tomorrow at about 21:00 London time (15:00 US east coast time). All streams will go on youtube later, in case anybody is interested.
If you would like me to answer some of your questions or talk about some things in general, post a comment and I'll see what I can include. Also, I'm open for suggestions as to what you'd like me to paint.
Links and updates will follow
Happy New Year and Resolutions, Streaming and VidsHappy 2017 everyone, if 2016 didn't work out the way you wanted may the next year be more fruitful for you, and if last year was great for you, surely, this one will be even better.
Now, I wanted to share some things I'll try to do this year and maybe get some feedback and ideas from whoever is interested.
First is: a lot of people keep asking me for more painting process videos, so at this point I cant ignore it. I want to start doing live streaming consistently, maybe only a couple of hours each week and then if it grows possibly more. I am thinking of having a short Q&A separately, which i could turn into a Youtube video later (so that people who missed the stream can get their questions answered), and a normal stream where I paint and how I do my lame art.
And secondly, I wanted to ask how many of you would be interested in a graphic story made by me, and how would you prefer it to be published?
Basically, I had something like this planned for a while now, and I figured I have
Collective ArtbookHey, everyone,
just wanted to say that I´m doing this artbook with a bunch of other great artists on kickstarter: http://kck.st/2eCc7ni
if any of you are into that, there are a lot of prints and other stuff included, so check the link out and see for yourself
Many thanks :DA massive thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes, I don't have many friends otherwise so it was greatly appreciated.
I'll keep trying my best with my art and I hope you can keep enjoying it
About Graphic novels, Books and Stories in generalHey, everyone.
Long time without a social call, so here it is, and it's going to be a lengthy one.
Mostly I would like to get some feedback on the things I'll mention below, and if you have dealt with anything similar, it would be nice if you could share your experience.
So, I'm slowly working on my story ("slowly" is an understatement), and it's getting to the point where I'm thinking about the different ways I could release it. I'm still far away from finishing it, but it can't hurt gathering info right now.
First of all, about the actual "look" of the book. It's definitely not going to be a comic book or anything like that. Not that I hate comics but that's not what I had in mind for my project. My story will have a lot of text, a lot of narrative, you'll have to actually read it and not just browse through the pictures.
Here's what I thought 2 pages might look like:
It's just a test page with an older artwork and gibberish as text, but it should
So...The last journal was like from April time for another one, I suppose.
(kinda feel like general Knoxx when writing these)
First of all, thanks a lot for the birthday wishes, they filled around 2 or 3 pages worth of comments already (probably more than getting a DD)
love all of them, of course, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be this one: http://comments.deviantart.com/4/6664364/3186008442
it's so over-the-top, and the funniest thing is how all those rainbowy sheep are dancing around my grumpy gray icon. Not to mention the two llamas on crack. Definitely worth a feature.
On another note, MacRebisz and I have revived our Fallen Suns project which we started a few years ago.
You probably noticed some images I posted, but it's basically a sci-fi story taking place in a desolate corner of space. In a way it's a bit post-apocalyptic, because the system where everything is happening was half destroyed by some unknown war or conflict, so the main plot is about how pe
Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.
Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
