Hello Again!Beautiful Features...
I am very happy to tell you that I recently assumed ownership of Sublime Rush from the amazing RockstarVanity. I know I have some awesome shoes to fill there, but I am really looking forward to keeping the momentum of the magazine going. I have quite a few interviews lined up with some amazing artists around the world. There will be an In Review & Preview Issue at the end of August and then Issue 008 will be out at the end of October.
Send me a note here if you are interested in being in Sublime Rush or contributing, or email email@example.com.
And if you are not familiar, you can check out the magazine here: www.sublimerush.com (http://www.sublimerush.com/)
I have been trying to keep up with stuff over at 4bstr4ct4rt more lately. I think a few people thought the
Things That Changed Other Things
The Sketchbook Project 2011 Tour was created by the Arthouse Co-op in Brooklyn, NY. It is the fifth tour with many themes for the artists to choose from. Iaian Greenson (DoctorBalls), from Toronto, Canada, chose the theme "Things That Changed Other Things". His sketchbook explores this theme with 73 pages of beautiful artwork. As Iaian's sketchbook tours the US he will be notified each time a person looks at his work of art. Each journal on the tour will have a barcode and will be checked out by the viewer like a library book. Eventually his sketchbook will make it back to the Brooklyn Art Library to be part of their permanent collection.
Check out the sketchbook on the tour if you can. Otherwise you can see Iaian's sketchbook here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/58747210N07/sets/72157625905407970/

Interesting Color PalletsSitting here a little bummed that my long weekend is almost over and I will have to go back to the grind tomorrow. I am ridiculously behind on some projects, but I need to get everything done before my little trip to Canada next week. I best get busy!
As I was faving a ton of stuff from my watch folder today, I thought that "interesting colour pallets" would make a nice feature...

Whoa...!!! :-) + Violet FeaturesChecked my messages this morning to be greeted by someone congratulating me on the senior status. I have to admit, I was happily surprised. And it is an honor to have it happen on Deviant's birthday.
Thanks to everyone who stopped to say congrats. And thanks to everyone who watches me and my art.
Special thanks to Senecal. I have mentioned it before, but he has been a huge influence on me over the past few years. One thing he has always stressed to me is having a sense of community. I have tried other online art communities out there, and I have to say, dA has been one of the best. All of the art and the people have really been an inspiration.
Okay, enough of all that. Some violet features for you all!

Diagram of a Scam LetterRecently I had someone send me a note on Etsy expressing interest in purchasing one of my artworks, "Jupiter Surfaces". At first I was excited to make a sale, but then I began to analyze the note. I thought, I wonder who this is that they need to be so private about the sale um, answer is that it is a scam to get my money.
I thought I would share this, with a little break down of it, for all of you who sell your art or crafts online.
"RE: Jupiter Surfaces, Item # xxxx:
I am interested in the immediate purchase of your item and will be make payment via cashier check/money order, my private shipping company will handle the shipping, but before payment will be made i need to be sure of who i am dealing with if you are going to be honest and sincere throughout the transaction. A certified cashiers check is cash-able the same day,there is going to be an excess fund on the check ,the excess fund is meant for the private shipping company who will come to your place for pick up of the ite

How to get better at artPeople keep asking me what programs i use, and what program is the best for drawing and what brushes i used for this artwork or that. Those are legitimate questions, sure, but not entirely accurate. There are differences between programs and brushes, but in the end, they are all tools. They are tools artists use to put their imagination onto a canvas. Just like a traditional artist can use 10 different brushes to paint an artwork, or just one single brush, digital art is the same in that regard. There is no one brush that can achieve an effect that none other can. Sure it's a little more difficult if you're using one brush type to draw everything, but not impossible. Artists might have hundreds of brushes in Photoshop but in truth, we use 2-5 brushes the most and those hundreds only in special cases. I personally use a hard brush and a soft brush for 90% of things, what i do change is the opacity and turn the pressure on and off, change the size etc.
And the most common

Troll pollution?What's up with all the troll accounts of really bad taste lately?
I wish dA would simply ban these people, when they are polluting this site on purpose and act like total jerks screaming for attention? (I mean, it's not even funny at all.) There are these people I have to keep reporting, since they upload commissioned works and my clients are really unhappy about it. Once it gets taken down, I have to report it AGAIN AND AGAIN since it get reposted again!? I have MUCH better things to do than deal with kids like this.
And they accuse the real artists to steal from them when the trust is so obvious? What kind of trolling is that, are they even trying?
And the death threat jokes...
This have gone way too far beyond stupidity x__x
I'm not sure if people realise they can get in LEGIT trouble for doing things like this? (but they are probably too young and ignorant to care) are they really that desperate and have nothing better and productive to do? That's really... sad.
Now it's just extre
White knightsI haven't spend much time on my computer last weekend, but enough to see that DeviantArt was kept busy by a troll that apparently did really well for as much as trolls can 'do well' on the internet. A little over 4000 pageviews in just 4 days the account is online proved not only the artists involved in the matter took offense... but apparently a lot of other DeviantArt members as well. Even those that seemed (to me at least) totally uninvolved with the troll or the particular type of art.
For those that wonder about the issue; It's about Foxbun's rather cynical joke about the 'closed species' matter. (I'm usually against name calling here. But this account has intentionally created for its goal. It has been all over the site already and would've been in the comments within 10 minutes, even without me mentioning here. I don't provide a link, though. Use your search engine if you want to research it.)
The term white knight is to most older members of DeviantArt (or the interne
Art and overthinkingDear, deviantart fellow artists
There are times when everything goes well, but sometimes It's so easy to let those thoughts (whether caused by fear, life, problems etc.) to overcome your wilingness to do anything. So we let ourselves to get distracted, even though that's not what we really want to do. It's just easier. But we should not let overthinking to stand in our way.
People do tend to overthink all the time. Worrying about unimportant things, while doing nothing about solving actual problems. If there is anything that you think constantly about, that needs to be done - don't put it away till the later. It will only get worse. So often do we regret our decisions in the past, yet we are the only ones who can impact our future.
People also crave for disctractions. That's why probably social media sites are so popular these days. Watching youtube videos all day - It's inspiring to see how other people get success
The most amazing thing happened today!This morning, a guy rand my doorbell and i thought that was a little weird because i wasn't expecting anyone. He said he has a delivery for me with 2 tubes from deviantART. I was really surprised because i didn't remember giving my address (it was such a long time ago that i did probably) or didn't remember ordering anything and only until i opened them did i realize they were print gifts from my wishlist! But i have no idea who sent them :icontearyguyplz: They were both prints of this artwork
and i am not sure if there were too separate people who sent them (they appear to have been sent at different times) or one person. BUT WHOEVER YOU ARE THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU WONDERFUL PERSON!
The prints are amazing looking! Kudos to deviantART because the quality of the print is astonishing the prints are on material not paper and that not only makes them more durable but it also has a very neat oil painting feel to it.
This just made my week! I will
