A Farewell?Good evening everyone, I won't be as active as I used to be or I hope so not. Starting from Sunday I'll have to put both my mind and body in my future studies, therefore I must postpone my commissions to a later time and I do appreciate your patience with me for those who have been waiting for their commissions.
I'll have you know I had recently watched Othello and it would probably explain this style of writing that I am now using.
.:Shakespeare mode: Off :.
Yeah so basically I'll be buried in piles of college stuff this year and won't be active but I'll visit every now and then to check the daily deviations and feedback~ oh and for the commissions, have no worries dearies I plan to finish them soon! wonder why? because whenever I have scho- I mean serious homework to do I end up procrastinating the day, producing art instead c:
Good things never last...Looks like my vacation's gonna end in less than two weeks...then it's University for me ;_; I don't remember drawing a single decent picture with a decent background this summer..as I planned... Hopefully I'll make one during the whole studying.
Pfft did I mention I graduated from highschool? xD oh man it feels so unreal yet real ;w;
I guess that's all I want to write right now, kinda want to let it out on you guys...and girls xD

This was the very first comic I laid my eyes on when I first joined dA. Looking at her comics inspired me to do my own whether they were fan-made or original, and I remember those days in middle school where me and my friends used to draw loads of comics and write stories about it ;w; such good memories they were and still are.
Man, this reminds me of the old days when I used to be a naruto fan, I used to read the manga, watch the episodes, watch YouTube amv videos of it...etc. Most of my drawings back then were naruto fan-art. When I stumbled upon Endless-Mittens's art I was like 'holy shyat that's some damn

Bye Bye Highschool and HELLOOOOO UNIVERSITY!!I kinda should have posted this journal on 10th of June but my fingers were oh so lazy, I know that's not an excuse lol
Guess who's the newest high-school graduate of class 2014!!
No, not my sister,
and no, my mom already graduated years ago.....
and no, my cat does not go to school...
are saying saying it's me? I can't hear you...YES YES YOU'RE CORRECT! I am now an official high-school graduate and I'm never getting tired of saying it again :'D
When I got my certificate a thought came to my mind...
"Oh shit, after tomorrow I’m not going to be in high school anymore."
Nostalgia is how I felt back then for merely 2 minutes, when my mom finally arrived to pick me up she told me to say my last goodbye to school, this is how I was like:
Ah, the freedom, the endless hours of sleep and aahh the procrastina-wait what? oh hell no I ain't gonna waste my precious time this time! This time I'm planning to finish all my requests/commissions/art-trades I've been holding up
System thinks my comment is a spam????!!!!What. The. Hell??
"couldn't post the comment, since the system thinks it's spam"
Does "Hi and welcome to dA " look like a spam to you? or "Been in art block for a long and I don't think I can do a pic for the contest sadly :/" a spam too? like, seriously????
dA won't allow me to post a single bloody comment on ANYTHING!! because it simply thinks my comment is a spam :iconffffukplz: I've got steam coming outta ma' ears here D:<
Has anyone faced this sort of problems before? how long did it last? what the hell caused it?
I really need these answers ;______; -currently frustrated- I'm not the kind of person who writes a lot of journal entries but this has been bugging me for the past 15 minutes! anything that bugs me for that long means that some serious sh** is going on :iconwthamiseeingplz:
I just hope it'll go away so I can move on with my life peacefully, while

Creating your own MangaIntroduction
You have a great story, a bunch of characters and you want to create a manga. However, where do you start? Do you have it Left->Right or Right->Left? How should you publish it (*note: some publishers may have additional requirements/restrictions)?
The process is pretty much the same for any graphic progression such as comics.
Luckily, there are a great number of tutorials to help you on your way.
A storyboard is a panel or series of panels which detail the sequence of significant events in a planned scene, i.e. a rough sketch coupled with some words to describe the actions in the scene.
At this point you'd need to have an idea of whether you are making a left->right or right->left manga.

PE: How to Scan and Adjust ImagesTutorial Time: How to scan and adjust images on Photoshop!
Hello everyone, welcome to this tutorial article of PE week!
well, you know, there is this youtube channel where there's lots of videos regaring tips, tricks and general advice for artists, and it is the best I've seen of the kind. But sadly, it is only in portuguese - hence why cinyu came up with the great idea of getting me to translate one of their videos!
I decided to pick up this one regarding scanning and adjusting images on photoshop, because that is one of the most basic, yet worst parts for many traditional artists. This tutorial is mostly for scanning black and white works, so it'll be more useful if you're working on manga/comic pages or inked art, but I hope it'll give you some ideas and help out in general on how scanning works.
I'll be translating the most important parts of the video, along with screenshots. Let's get started!
Things you'll need:
When It's HardHi folks! I realized in my most recent round of blogs that I've been a little quick to tell you all to put on your grown up panties, but this one is going to be a little different. Making art can be one of the most exhilarating things you'll ever do, but (and this is from personal experience also) 80% of the time you're going to fail. You'll spill your ink all over that glorious drawing. Oil from your hands will permanently stain only the portion of paper that was meant to remain a snowy white. Your computer's hard drive will crash or all your image files (all the WIPs especially) will get corrupted. You'll try something new and it just won't work out the way you envisioned. These things are the parts that aren't really spoken about enough, and so when they happen to us we assume that we're doing something terribly wrong. I'm here to tell you that we all go through these things and there's always a solution!
When you're not improving

This is the one story that truly made my heart touched and taught me a lesson I should never forget ;w; there was a time I was so depressed on why my drawings were always crappy and all and it sorta gave me depression, I even wanted to quit drawing, but when I saw this comic it surely gave me hope that one day I may improve and that I should probably stop comparing my drawin
Inspector Wolf The old lady was dead. I could smell it before I even got into the house. The whole place reeked of adrenaline, sweat, fear, copper and steel. He’d dropped her right in her living room. Chopped and chopped until she stopped moving. But I could tell I was getting close. This had been done in a hurry, and the killer didn’t have the time to clean up after himself like he usually did.
Across the room, the phone rang. The shrill sound set my teeth to grinding, but I ignored it. Instead I followed the killer’s bloody footprints into the back bedroom. He’d climbed out the window. If I hurried, I could catch up to him and end this disgusting spree he was on.
Then the answering machine kicked in. “Hi, Gramma! It’s Red. Sorry I’m running late. I kind of lost track of time. But don’t worry. I packed the picnic and I’m heading out the door right now. Love you.”
She’d been expec
