New Contest! The Will to be Badass!Sup BADASS! :iconbadassplz:New Contest! The Will to be Badass! by BADASS-Characters
Even the most gifted badasses have to train. Whether it's mastering their techniques, achieving spiritual enlightenment or just plain old working out, badasses need to train!
This contest is open to original characters and fan works alike.
What we are looking for is...
1. The character or characters working to become or maintain their badass status.
2. This training can be all sorts of things. It can be pumping weights or exercising. It can be practicing with their powers or abilities. If you like it can be something more spiritual, like levitating rocks with their mind. Even meditation, done right, can be badass.
3. Sparring with an opponent can be accepted. However, you should be careful to make it different from an actual fight or combat.
4. While some forms of training can be conveyed in a static pose (like standing beneath a waterfall), most of the best in
Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out? by Mrs-Durden
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com
5 Art Selling TipsWhile I used to see "art sales" simply as bonus money coming in on the side, over the past few years it's become enough of an asset that it justifies an art dealer, record keeping, insurance, and taxes at the end of each year. It's currently 25% of my total income, and that has a lot of impact over my work. And just like storytelling, design and page flow--abstract principles that keep my career afloat daily--art sales also deserve to be studied, theorized, and understood.5 Art Selling Tips by seangordonmurphy
These are guidelines, not rules. And while most of them usually work for me, they might not all work for you, so keep in mind that my market might be different than yours. Because not only do we not draw the same, we probably have different sorts of buyers.
1. Don't stay on a book for too long
I find that doing mini series of 4-12 issues is optimal for selling art. If you spend a year doing one-shots or 2-3 issue minis, you'll be hard for buyers to keep track of because it's too infrequent. And it's hard to make an i
While still young, Praeses saw his father, Pairu, die during the resistance to the invasion of Galea, and everyone around him getting forced to work as miners by the orders of King Baldur Kratt. As a young adult, he channeled these feelings of frustration, fear and powerlessness into a plan with some fellow workers in order to escape the island.
My name is Ang Hor Kheng and I'm a hobbyist comic style illustrator based in Ipoh, Malaysia, who draws just about anything. What you'll find here is my interpretation of the world around me, both real or imagined. I always try to keep my lines simple and tight. I do hope you all can find something you like in my page, and if my art can inspire you somehow, all the better.
Just a little about me:
I've been drawing since I was 3 years old (that was as far as I can remember it) mainly doing comic stuff like X-men or Avengers...Favourite artists include Jim Lee, Jae Lee, Al Williamson and John Buscema. I haven't got the privilege to enter a formal art school (my mum wants me to s.t.u.d.y...), so I'm basically self-taught; observing carefully the beauty of our universe and drawing inspirations from it. I occasionally dabble in watercolor and digital art too, but my main passion is still good old traditional art, which I believe to be the best way to hone our skills as artists.
