Fuck you too, Deviantart by italian-artist
Fuck you too, Deviantart
So according to DeviantArt, if you're not paying a stupid rate you're not contributing to the welfare of the site. You're not a valued member of the community. The prices aside, and even if this wasn't intentional, someone should have been able to see this before it went up and caught it. If you're not shelling out cash, you're not helping DeviantArt anyway and should be thankful of those who have the cash.
So, I think, like most of my other projects before it, I will put Codename Acheron on the back-burner. I'm still
unbelievably new to digital work and as such I have a lot of things I to learn, and a lot of things I need to
build upon, including the things I need to learn.

So for a good while now, I might release from time-to-time as I have been, but for now it'll just be practice,
practice, and more practice. I'll be doing the "Draw it 100 times" challenge with a LOT of things, so by the time
I even begin to think I'm ready for something I can commit to, I'll have drawn over a thousand new things to drill
it into my head. I would start Acheron if not for the fact that the things I need to learn are VITAL, first and foremost
being anatomy, especially faces, hands, and this annoying spot on the female torso I just can't seem to ever get right.

Oh well, it'll be worth it in the end. And hopefully I won't be jumping any guns or sharks again.

No need to thank me for faving. If anything you should be saying "your welcome". You artwork helped me out yesterday as I was losing confidence in having my own comic book, but seeing your gallery kept me from throwing the pages away.

thanx for the fav.


I'm trying to spread the word of my kickstarter (The Blood of War Comic Book) and I need to reach as many people as possible. If your interested or know someone who may be  please share the link. 

If this works out I'll be able to offer more work to the comic, web, graphic, print, video, photography and app industry. Thank you for your help :).

Using this as a comment back to the comment on your Gasmask deviation as well ;D

Yay! You remember me! I've FINALLY gotten a tablet of my own and god DAMN am I loving it. And I've also moved from bullshitting anime styles to bullshitting a 1/2 western comics (ala Marvel, DC, etc.), 1/4 anime (for dat style) and 1/4 my own embellishments. It's... Still WIP, but I'm pretty sure that's EVERY artist for ya.

And I too have been working on tribal stuff as well, as I do actually plan on getting a tattoo gun at some point. Just as well, I've been getting more and more into gaming, and as a result, I've messed around in 3d modelling programs and supplementing my models with knowledge of GIMP, Photoshop and PaintTool SAI.

Currently, I'm working on a mod for the pc version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim which illustrates everything I just said: [link]
