Very helpful videoThose who had been on art school or art related classes must had known about the importance of color, and this video right here is just about the best that I had ever seen that's understanding color when doing illustrations or art of any kind.

OH OHTHERE'S A VERY TALL AND GLOWING GUEST OCCUPYING OUR LIVING ROOM AND TURNING ALL THE THINGS INSIDE OUT.HOW DO I KICK IT OUT?
Commissions and suchCOMMISSIONSIf you're interested in a commission just send me a note and we'll talk about what it is you'd want done! Before you do that, however, I'd appreciate it if you took the time to read through this post, and any update posts (to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings).I do reserve the right to turn down a commission if it is something that I do not feel suits me and my style of art, or if for some other reason I do not feel comfortable with the request.PricesAverage prices (US. Dollars): Sketch - $6 link Line art - $12 link Flat colour - $16 link
Galactic Empire under new managementWow. This I didn't see coming: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-20146942$4 Billion? (£2.5 Billion, in real money)Not as much as Pixar.....but then, if Lucasfilm were a house, JarJar would be the devaluing, sh*t-stained carpet a new owner would have to deal with.And, no, I'm not going to denounce it. Disney buying Lucasfilm? That has potential, and I'm not talking Star Wars, here.If I've read the press release on the Disney corporate website correctly, they now own EVERYTHING – including Lucasarts, which is a division of Lucasfilm.Monkey Island/Day of the Tentacle/Sam & Max + Disney? That could be amazing!As for the (inevitable) Star Wars 7, I'm really hoping they use the Thrawn Trilogy. In fact, I'm betting they do. Let's face it; Disney haven't ever had an original idea, that's why they keep buying up other people's work, and if they're hoping to have something released by 2015 they'll have no choice but to dive into existing material.Of course, if they produce a Satur

Me? Cracked? Nnnnaaaahhhhh.*Stops screaming just long enough to say..... :3 "Heh. Yer welcome," then continues running around naked and screaming random nonsense* YOU CANNOT RUST A BANANA, THEY SAID! WELL I HAPPEN TO KNOW OTHERWISE! ALL IT REQUIRES IS A FEW JUMPING JACKS, A FLUTE, AND WHATEVER LATE ALIMONY PAYMENTS YOU OWE YOUR EX WIFE! (Yes, I know she is obnoxious but it is necessary to RUST THE BANANA!) UPON COMPLETION OF THE CEREMONIAL NAKED RUSTING DANCE....... *dramatic pause* BEHOLD! A Jack Russel Terrier......... *contemplative pause* HOW DID THAT HAPPEN!? I DON'T OATMEAL THIS! THIS MAKES NO BANANA! I anticipate BANANA! YOU BASTARDS! *Stares furiously at the floor for approximately three minutes and fifteen seconds* Wait.... perhaps because I do not in fact have an ex wife to whom I owe alimony..... this means....... I CANNOT RUST THE BANANA! THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT. *starts hurling globs of Nutella at people* I WILL PUNISH YOU ALL.Bystanders: Oooh! Nutella! Not really much of a punishment. *yum*S

Fast and easy way to create a reference sheet...Just the other day, I discovered a super quick and easy way to create reference sheets for digital painting. So, instead of having a ton of documents open all at once, slowing down your Photoshop, or spending a half hour to create your own sheet, you can use Picasa to create one for you in just seconds.Below is a video I made to show you how. There are some other tips in there as well, so take a look if you're interested!Take care!
Commission info and whatnot[EDIT] I've decided to lower my prices. Why? Just because. I realized that they may have been a bit high :icontoodamnhighplz:Ponies :1 character flat colour : $5Example1 character shaded : $10ExampleExtra characters are $3 each for flat, $8 each for shadedSimple backgrounds are $5 extra (will often be abstract)Example Complex backgrounds will vary between $10 - $25 extra depending on you wanted.Example Torch hounds :(they are more expensive as they are more complex than ponies)1 character flat colour : $8Example1 character shaded : $15Extra characters are $5 for flat, and $12 for shaded.Backgrounds are the sameAll prices are CAD, if interested, just send a note!
Point CommissionsYes just to say that my point commissions are open ( I know I still have commissions to do) I'm also putting the money equivalent by the side, just incase anyone wants to pay directly with money. It would really really help if some people could commission me, as I'm saving up for surgery still. It doesn't matter whether you commission me with points or money (because I'll be able to convert the points into money anyway) but if you can't then please spread the word! Don't complain about the prices being too high.. For me they're too low, because I work longer than what I get paid for!Am I the only person that thinks Sally's resign looks fricking awesome!?? In my honest opinion she looks so much better and more like a sonic character with her new outfit and awesome haircut http://www.darknoise.co.uk/Sonic_Wrecks/sally_redesign_NYCC.jpgCheck this! http://yamio.deviantart.com/journal/ANIPAN-GET-BETA-INVITES-RAFFLE-320069526 <333I work so goddamn hard on my art, so please don't comp
