The goal is only set so high because I didn't want to limit it. I pay for my own premium and what nots. Any points donated will be used in turn to donate premium time to deserving artist, our starving fellows who have earned their place here yet still cant afford to expirience the comunity the way it is meant to be expirienced.
Come on guys! Lets bring in the lost sheep...or Llamas, which ever the case may be. :)

As artists it is our DUTY to turn ourselves INSIDE OUT as an expression of our FREEDOM, as a PROTEST against the powers of SLAVERY!!! Welcome to the new generation, to the info age! Where the presence of purpose and the advent of ubiquitous communication have rendered antiquated dogma transparent and irrelevant. This is our time, time to take your eye off the ball and look inward and ahead. This is evolution in action, this is the 14th degree.
Current Residence: Carson, CA…

Have you ever noticed how when everything seems to be going right and for once it seems like fate, or God, or bumper the magic space bee, or whatever is finally on your side for once, that is when the bottom decides to fall out? C'est la vie, no?
   So my window is begining to narrow. I have only a few months now until I am supposed to winging my way to California to start over and finally be with my beautiful and loving girlfriend. But as always seems to happen when i need something, I am broke with nothing resembling a promising prospect anywhere on the horizon. WTF mate? My estimate is that i will need about five grand to make the move comfortably. Anyone want to hazerd a guess as to how much i have accumulated? NONE! I had about 300 at one point but life snuck up and robbed my pickle jar. Gay sauce!
  I am at a loss. Anyone know how I can make five grand in two months legally?

  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: whatever this junk safeway is blaring.
  • Reading: too much into things
  • Watching: for what comes next.
  • Playing: The role of an adult
  • Eating: the most killer sushi this side of the Pacific.

definitely, I love this piece. I was looking for inspiration for a project I need to start. I just started a YT channel Confederation of Evil Geniuses. And I need to do some cover art. I want to do a team image featuring archetypal villains.

Honestly every artist thinks that we are not good enough but that is what drives us to improve. I have people tell me every day that i am talented and that they could never do the things I do. But it is a two way street. I don't think I could ever do what you do. I have tried my hand at Manga more times then I can count and I just cant wrap my head around it.
  And as far as improvment goes, skill is like like punching a brick wall. it is uncomfortable and timeconsuming and sometimes it feels like you'll never get to the otherside and then suddenly BAM!!! breakthrough and something that seemed impossible for you is suddenly so easy you wonder how you ever had trouble with it. give you an example.
After a decade of drawing I went from this…
to this…
in three days. I read a book called drawing portraits from photographs by Lee Hammond and suddenly everything just clicked. I still have a LOOONG way to go before I get to where I want to be but art is not just what I do, It is who I am and I will probably be sketching on my death  bed. lol
