Remember how it started as a thumbnail?
I sketched it out at work during my break. I wasn't too happy with the initial 'Spider-man-esque' poses (look at the thumbnails on the other page and the sketch on the left I drew on my workplace's notepad).
I then decided that the thumbnail I drew at work was the one to go with. So I went back home to scan the drawing, import it into Photoshop and used my Cintiq for the rest of the way (in other words it'll be a digital illustration compared to the more traditional method of full pencilin' on paper, scan and import for a complete render on Photoshop). I got my image, pasted it on a new canvas, flipped it, and quickly laid out the elements - Elliot's main character (Jacob), the thugs, and the logo. Elliot intended to use the final image for his comic cover so he conveniently provided his title logo for me to use as a
Who I am at Thirty Years of Age Thank you, for your kind words & encouragement.darkspeeds
Guys and gals, I will keep this brief right here before I get to my main topic - I'd like to share a thank you to all of you who wished me a happy 30th birthday this year. I've already had an excellent time with family back home, work colleagues and my special friends from overseas (three of whom I still plan to catch up on my days off for a Skype call).
I'm going to give some shout-outs (from the deviantART community) before I move on to some special comments that I've received and saved up since coming back home to Perth, Western Australia. The comments that I speak of revolve around my other life as a proactive freelance illustrator working on art commissions; sharing creative projects, blogs and videos that still continue to inspire others to this very day.
To the talented writer :iconkafelnikov: & :iconFreakova: for their extended comments on my recent journal.

Awesome news to share, Tracy J. Butler has exceeded beyond her milestone goal of working on her Eisner-nominated webcomic series full-time, all thanks to the support of fans and an initiative called Patreon. A big congratulations to her for making the brave and bold step into creating comics full-time whilst quitting her job (from the gaming industry) in the process. Here's a video to check out as an introduction to her initiative:
If you haven't heard of Patreon then I'm sure you're familiar with the concept of 'crowdfunding' or initiatives like Kickstarter or Indiegogo. The elements are similar but the difference is that the money you put in for the initiative is focused more-so on the individual/creator rath

Taking your art to the next level in 2015!
Duel of the fates
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
Famously said by many, “Ninety percent of success is showing up.” How true it is about a soul killing combination: looking at what our own first efforts in any endeavor, particularly art, result in, and then looking at the works of far more experienced artists. Giving up always seems the logical, if panicked,
An Artistic Challenge - Traditional Painting! Your next Artistic Challenge - Paint Your Friend with Acrylic/Oils/Gouache!darkspeeds
Go on, give it a go - I dare ya.
Anyways so far so good! This is very good practice for me, and the same goes to those who watch my artwork. I strongly encourage you to take a break from doing digital stuff and get hands-on with a brush, dabs of good old paint straight from the tube, and onto the canvas. Challenge yourself and learn how you can render more effectively with light, colour and a bit of intuition!
How Your Environment Affects Your ArtA Discussion with Bobby Chiu by Flynn Ringroseimaginism
A lot of people who email in live in circumstances or with people that don’t support their art. What do you think about that?
The first thing is families. Some people don’t have supportive families, and some are too supportive. I’m sure we all have our stories. So you want to look out for yourself and ask, “Is my environment healthy for my growth?” You want to make sure that you’re surrounding yourself with other hungry artists.
For me, in the very, very, very beginning, it was just my brother, Ben and I in our parent’s basement. That was not a good environment because I was living with my parents. Which isn’t necessarily bad, except your parents might think, “Bobby’s home, maybe he would like to take out the trash, or mow the lawn, or whatever.”
When we all start
