Time sure goes byIt's turning into a habit for me to say this stuff... currently, I'm working on various commissions, including a very interesting thing for prodigal-gamer and illustrations for a story concerning Alice in Wonderland... and so I'm not posting much in here. Unless you follow me on tumblr, I might seem rather quiet now I'm also working my ass off studying Japanese - I have a couple of lessons behind me already and I'm utterly loving it. I even socialise! Went for a coffee with a fellow student the other day to obsess over Japanese and Korean actors and SnK... I mean, the other student. Cause there's two of us. But don't worry, things are coming, and I am popping here on dA daily, to catch up with whatever fabulous things you are doing. Replying to notes and comments is another thing, though - there's a bunch that are still waiting for my reply (some, for fucks sake, months, I am a horrible person, sorry Brandon, Eva, Chad, Michael, Sieskja, Renee, and Hope!). Hopefully I'll man
I will tell you-It seems like fun, and I've seen Agaave and Astralseed do it (and I'm waiting for my scanner to start working, it always throws tantrums when I need it for commissions...), so here we go, allow me to torture you with my twisted mind.Comment down here, and I'll answer with my attempt of determining:* what creature you remind me of;* what colour I think fits you;* how I feel about you;* insult you (I won't do this one unless you ask me )* my favourite artwork of yours;* what season you remind me of;* tell you what food you smell like in my head;* think of a random nickname for you;* what element you remind me of;* I'll command you to put this in your journal without using the words 'tag' or 'dare' or 'order'.Do it on your own responsibility and risk, my brain is not a sfw place.
Things come and go... and this is one hell of a big title for what I'm going to write about.Today was my last day in my Community Volunteer career. Those were 2 and a half fabulous years, which is frankly 2 and a half years more than I expected when I applied... in... December 2011? Man... Yes, well, I had a short break before I came back in May 2014, and stayed longer than I anticipated. It was fun, sometimes less, but mostly more. I made new friends again. Had a chance to stumble upon many fabulous works and galleries, write reviews for my favourite movies and do a lot of other neat things.I have more people to mention here than my brain can handle at the moment, since it's swirling with hiragana, but I need to wave my hand to Mrs-Durden and Agaave for being badass ladies. And Moonbeam13. And lots of others... my fellow CVs, my fabulous DD suggesters... And then there's the special group of people of whom I shall not speak fo

Why so quiet?Ohayō, folks.I suspect that some of you, at least the ones that have been watching me for a longer time, might have been unimpressed with my lack of posting paintings lately. There's a couple of things behind that, and I'd like to mention two of these, as much as I'm not that much of a person who likes sharing matters from their personal life.Well. First thing is that the past weeks I've been bouncing around IRS and county offices to set up and official freelance business. It drained me of the little social interaction energy that I have, and most of my energy in general, so I rather preferred to spend that time doing things that didn't require much activity from me, mainly reading and watching stuff. That matter is solved now (5 days ago exactly) and I'm now going back into business... which is pretty much exactly what I've been doing before this whole fuck up - just from now on, it's all completely legally and officially registered.The other thing is that my meds been less ef

So you want to do commissions?A basic guide to setting up commissionsWhen it comes to commissioning, there is so much that needs to be decided, arranged and thought of that it can all appear a bit daunting at first.However: when following a couple of basic guidelines, setting up commissions really is not as hard as you think!If you find the article informative, please it.----------------------------------------First things firstSo you have decided you want to start doing commissions. That's great!The first thing to do is to determine what you want to offer.Do you want to offer drawings, or designs?Will you be coding journal-skins for people, or will you be pixeling?Take a look through your gallery and try to determine what you do best and what you like to do the most.Because that will most likely be what you'll be offering.TIP:Stick to what you're good at.Don't promise what you can't deliver when someone is paying you for it.Now that you've mo
Tips for smooth clean line artHi,Is your line art shaky, wobbly, sloppy, fat, uneven or pixelated? The subject of clean line art comes up a lot so I've gathered together a number of tips from various DA members that may help you improve your line art. Some of the techniques described below may contradict other techniques described below so you may want to experiment and decide what works best for you. Most of these assume that you have a digital tablet. (Make sure your tablet drivers have been installed correctly. If your cursor is behaving erratically it may indicate a problem with your tablet or drivers.) Some posts have been edited for brevity or spelling:"I developed my own technique. And it works quite well for me. It raised my Lineart cleanliness from 24% to 98%, yeah, really. Here is how I do it digitally when I'm not using a traditional sketch: First a rough sketch, and I isolate it in its own layer then set its opacity to 50 or something near that value. Then on the second layer
