Magazine! Excited to announce that is in this month's issue of 2DArtist! Go check out the issue http://www.2dartistmag.com/latest.html And here's a link to the section I'm featured in http://www.2dartistmag.com/artists/issue075_mar12/galleries.pdf It has some very helpful tips, interviews, and tutorials as well as some beautiful art to share. Soon 2DArtist will release a 'making of' Victorian Voodoo too. I'm just not clear on which issue just yet, but I will be sure to let you know!
PleaseI know this should be common knowledge but I feel as if I need to say it.Please do not use my artwork and claim it as your own. Do not edit it in any way unless I have given permission.And please do not pretend to be me on any site. Using my name and claiming to be me while leaving nasty comments to others is not okay. It reflects on me and my art in a negative light.However I would like to say again that I am very appreciative of all my supporters, comments, favs, watches, etc. And I hope I can continue to inspire and share my art with everyone! Thank you!!

Why would I pay 50 points for an adopt..."or..."100 points? Are you sure you're not overpricing that...?!"And I'm sure many of you have seen similar comments, now I understand that points aren't the easiest things to accumulate when you're fresh into dA or even we
PE: 5 ways to sabotage your career as an artist5 ways to sabotage your career as an artist"Very few possess true artistic ability. It is therefore both unseemly and unproductive to irritate the situation by making an effort.If you have a burning, restless urge to write or paint, simply eat something sweet and the feeling will pass."Fran Lebowitz Wait for an inspiration The mood is just not right today. Sure, you could pick up a pencil, sit down and push yourself to practice but the result would probably end up in a trash can. Waste of time, waste of material. Besides, the guy that commissioned you two months ago found a professional for the work already. Expect the success to happen quicklyA year or two, tops, that's all it takes to build a reputation. Being an artist isn't a job like any other, therefore you don't need to work on it every day. No need for
You're Not Alone“Sometimes we lay aside our own troubles when we wipe away another's tears.”—SenecaBy techgnoticApart...Is no longer aloneThis life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust. Ever
PE Daily Deviations- Presentation of your workHello all! Well we’ve had a fascinating week so far; a week which hopefully has provided some insight not only to the process of DD selection but helped you understand what we look for in DDs as CVs. As we draw to the end of this week, I bring you an article which will whet your Saturday with thoughts that don’t just apply to the DD feature, but something which should be a consideration to everything you submit to dA. I am talking about deviation presentation. Why is Presentation important?Art isn’t always about just being “creative”. There are techniques and skills which develop over time which contribute to the quality of the work you produce and alongside this comes a developed understanding of good presentation.Good presentation could be anything from cropping a photograph, to spell checking your literature. These are common sense things that in the rush of wanting to show off your creativity can sometimes be
New Premium Membership Feature: 10% off!You may have already heard, but we just launched a new feature as part of the Premium Membership package... Premium Members now receive an ongoing 10% discount on Prints and deviantWEAR purchases! That means they'll be saving 10% on all Photo Prints, Fine Art Prints, Wrapped Canvases, Art Gifts, T-shirts, Backpacks, Hoodies, and the rest of our devious gear. If that wasn't a sweet-enough deal, we've made it so that this discount stacks with most other sales that happen in our shop. For example, if we're running a 15% discount on Fine Art Prints, Premium Members will get a total of 25% off because of their additional 10% discount. Why are we doing this? Why not?! We wanted to add this discount as a small token of our appreciation for all the support Premium Members provide us. While we have many more upgrades in the works for the Premium Membership package, I'm excited that we were able to get this to you all in time for the holiday season. How's it work?

Why Can't Warner Bros Get Their Act Together?Over the weekend at SDCC, Warner Bros announced that the new Man of Steel sequel will also feature Batman. The team-up movie will be followed by a Flash movie and then a Justice League Avenger's style team-up movie. This has a lot of people scratching their heads and wondering what exactly is wrong with DC and Warner Bros respectively. Why Flash and not Wonder Woman? Why add Batman when reports have been told that Christian Bale doesn't want to return and we'll likely get a completely new Batman? Why do a team-up so soon after the first Man of Steel movie instead of fleshing out Superman's modernized world better?Well... to put it bluntly I don't think Warner Bros really gives a shit about comic book themed movies and they're only going through these motions because they feel like they HAVE to rather than because they WANT to. Just take a look at their track record.History of Bad MarketingFirst off, Warner Bros has a problem of relying too heavily on the people th
Inspiring videos from the topRecently I've been scouring TED talks... it's a bunch of videos from all these awesome people that are so inspiring and heartwarming. I did a poll a while back where 85% of you guys pretty much said that motivation was one of the most important factors to being an artist, and I think these videos can help everyone revive their drive, or push it even further.The fringe benefits of failure - From J.K. Rowling (Author of Harry Potter)The Mystery Box - From J.J. Abrams, the creator of Lost and Director of Star TrekYour Elusive Creative Genius - From the author of Eat Prey LoveA curious boy - From James Cameron (Director of Terminator, Avatar, Titanic)
Getting a First Storyboarding GigThis question came in from Twitter today: "How would I go about getting a first storyboarding gig?" I thought I'd put my answer on the blog so others can read it too. Here it is:When I was starting out I had absolutely no idea how to look for work myself. It ends up being different for everybody. The big thing when I was starting out was to make sure LOTS of people saw my work. This was before the Internet got started, so I was working on my college newspaper, making comics and showing them off at conventions. It was meeting a Ren & Stimpy director at a convention that helped me get my start. He liked my comics, and he told me all about how storyboarding for TV works.The main thing that helped me get started was that I got my work OUT THERE where people could see it. That's a million times easier to do now than ever before; no publishing costs too get your work see by countless people through blogs and Facebook and Twitter, etc.Here's a crazy story: last year I came across a guy on

JUUHANNA'S ART-RAFFLE! [WINNERS]Hello everybody, and welcome to my art-raffle journal! I've been thinking of different kinds of community-activities I could create or participate in, and this seems like it could be fun n easy. In order to participate in the raffle, you have to do two things:1. Add this journal to your favorites (so that you will have a number).2. Leave a comment with a link to the character (or few alternative charas for me to choose from) you'd like me to draw if you're a lucky winner!So fav+comment, and you're in! The way it works is as follows: Once the contest ends, I will use random number generator to get a number, and the person who has that number in the faves list will be the winner! I will be making a colored portrait (shoulders up) for the winner!As a bonus I will also generate a runner-up number, and the runner-up will get a port
F.A.QI've finally kicked my butt to make a F.A.Q. It is still in progress (and probably full of grammatical errors) and more will be added to it if felt needed!F.A.QAbout meNot much to say about me really, but what most people seem to ask is; where did I learn how to draw?I've never been taught by anyone how to draw, I've just always done it. It hasn't always been a passion for me though - for many years I actually resented it. In fact, it wasn't until two years ago that I truly started to love making art, haha! I've always loved watching other people perform different types of art, but never did I find it satisfying to sit down and draw; it was a chore and a demand from the old friends I used to have.Luckily when I changed school, that changed, along with me gaining an increasing interest in movies and animation, and now I finally love drawing almost every single time I do it.I'm 21, from Denmark and currently I'm a 1st year student studying a
The Yard Collective EditorialHello, dear Members, Watchers and bystanders. This Journal is an Editorial, general one. Lots of words, few pixels. But, if your bare with me it will (probably) make sense. Long is the list of Journals and notes about street photography, definitions, tendencies, and all that philosophy that comes with the genre we came to love. But, as a community, street photographers are in part forgetting to go through the ABC periodically, so that newcomers and enthusiasts can feel comfortable and empowered to taste this misunderstood part of photography. So, with a surprise unveiled somewhere below, let’s start going through the ABC (I’ll be needing your important input as comment too), like that part in the end of the camera’s user guide : “Camera doesn’t shot>Turn it on; Camera doesn’t work>Check your batteries for charge.” Maint
Art class 101 -Digital painting beginning exerciseSphere demoThis is a great way to try digital painting and to get used to two very different methods of digital painting, I will refer to them as glazing and direct painting. I find when teaching this to my students that it is about a 50/50 split as to which method the students prefer. Either method will produce beautiful results.The reason I start with the sphere is so that students master the techniques on a simple object, but dont let that fool you. A sphere is a very complex shape when you are first starting out. If you can mater shading a sphere smoothly then you will be well on your way to mastering digital painting. I often suggest students try the sphere exercise several times until they can do it smoothly.The goal of this exercise is to master the values to produce the illusion that the sphere is three dimensional. If you have ever taken a drawing or painting class, you may have done this exercise before with more traditional materials. There are 6-7 values needed to
