updates on new strips and print publishingso, time for some updates.
next week i will be posting the next strip and possibly another one. , by this i mean the next official chapter continuation. before that there is an alan ministrip i'm working on that is just.. ..well.. something nice, ull see not trolling this time XD
now , on publishing.
so far i have gotten a bunch of offers by publishers so that is not twhat is delaying it. personally i have my own preferance so i will probably take that road.
why it is still not out?
simple. going from the webcomic to standard comic format required a lot of work in creative cropping and reformatting.
this brought with itself a problem with making the writing fit.
this was an impossible task which required me to rewrite the whole damn thing.
flow has been significantly improved. small errors in continuity fixed,(like ally telling lisa that the bathroom is third door on the left when it is actually the second door... SHADDAP THAT'S IMPORTANT!)
a lot of wri
sunstone review XDgotta plug this one, this guy reviews webcomics, and in all honesty i never really thought sunstone would ever be reviewed there.
dunno, just always had a mental idea of a webcomic being something with it's own site XD
anyhooo, here is the video review i must say i had a few good laughs XD
regarding the slow outputthese last six or so months you have noticed my output here was less than impressive
there has been a family health crisis which i will not explain in details , but suffice to say it caused certain expenses to stockpile so i had to focus on paid work.
so fat this situation seems to be calming down to an extent but it is not likely something that will simply pass
so i can not guarantee a vast improvement in the near future.
i do not need anything from anyone i am okay, i am not here to ask but simply to explain so calm down as i can see already some of you there lovingly throwing money at the screens ...braking screens..and then blaming me for more broken screens XD
new sunstone is coming tomorrow, i thought i would have it done today but the sheer amount of people in the next strip kinda slowed down the process so yes, tomorrow the new strip cometh, and then the one after it should be done within a week or so given that it is a breaking point and a very impor
Devious Journal Entryso..um...yeah...
um... more coghhgfjgj........kay...had to pick up my jaw... as i said more cosplay. this time from
she doesnt post her cosplaying here but does on imgur....which was quite a challenge for interwebz dumb me to link XD
also you can find her gallery here
anyways... here is a crazy dedicated marion cosplay, both amazing from visual cues, to the attention to details of binding used in the comic....so yeah... i was floored....and of course beautiful framing, composition , and use of a camera..which i cant use to save my own life... i will be perfectly honest. nothing shows love fore the creation like a cosplay to me...it takes personal initiative, effort and courage...and i am very much grateful.
i'll have to figure out some sort of a gift for my fan community.. prolly s
just a general faq on printed sunstonejust want to have a journal to link to people who are curios as i just lack the time to answer everybody
1 yes sunstone will be sold in printed forrm as a series of books
2 each chapter will be 1 comic issue
3 i am currently finalizing printing arrangements
4 printed versions will feature improved art and writing, by art i mean obvious tweaks in anatomy , inking and so on, by writing i mean streamlined while keeping true to the material and at times better worded... with less typos....
I DIDN'T SAY NO TYPOS!
5 SUNSTONE WILL GENERALLY HAVE ABOUT 22 CHAPTERS
6 you might say it will be a sort of a 4 big parts to the story
first is the story of ally and lisa to a certain point, called sunstone
second is a story of alan and anne which will last about till chapter 12. ally and lisa will very much be featured in it vbut the focus will be shifted. subtitle of this one will be mercy
third will be about marion and james subtitled...not sure yet XD
while you are waiting....so while you are waiting for the dreadful terror of lisa's thank you to truly wreak havoc on everything XD (no really it is gonna be both funny and true) i would like to encourage you to visit my wife's webcomic bloodestein (if you haven't already)
1 it is a fun comic
2 well drawn and written
3 actually in continuity with sunstone XD
no...really. sunstone is about half a year ahead chronologically, but ally's gaming friends elly and vlad are the characters from bloodstein
they have made some appearences in sunstone already
so i figure as we will be seeing them more in chapter 5.... you might find it a fun read...
notw back to scheeming and planning
ooooh the horrors of a thank you!!!!
i love these , posing is awesome, and facial expressions are spot on... now im only hoping for some with silly faces.. what can i say, im a facial expression nut! XD
this is the awesomest thing everXDi just ... mind implodes . you know,
and the fact that :iconMizutanitony: got the wrong shirt..makes it even crazier when you realize that Takei still wanted the shirt XD
see, if he did this perfectly, he wouldn't have a funny story to tell, and that my friends is how you have a fun life
just awesome!!! XD

Once upon a time, I was a volunteer, and speaking from experience, it can be a both blessing and a curse.
I believe that many current and former volunteers will agree with that sentiment and I feel it's important to explain a bit about why I believe this to be true.
Maybe you're not aware of the variety of ways people join the volunteer team. As per FAQ #85: Can I be a volunteer on deviantART? many people send in an application to express their interest in joining the team and I go through those applications and s
New Feature For November.
This group focuses on encouraging artists.
Another feature of amazing artworks from our very talented members, which I hope everyone will enjoy and be inspired by. The submissions have been of a very high standard and I already have enough for next month's feature. Our membership is now over 3,170 and our galleries as I always write, contains even more amazing and inspirational art, which is well worth viewing.
The primary focus of this group continues to be digital painting and digital drawing, which should be submitted to the 'Featured 5' folder. This group also accepts and has folders for animation, designs and interfaces, deviantWEAR, pixel art and pixel animation, vector and vexel artworks, comic strips, pages and panels, matte painting, mature content, mixed media, mixed media - 3D, 3D art, commission information, tutorials and resources, announcements and also wallpaper submissions.
As always, I would like to congratulate the
Nom Nom #57 ShortbreadHeaded created by TouchedD
Shortbread - sort of like marmite, you either hate it or love it. I have to be in the mood for it - but it is quite lovely. Generally, it originates from Scotland. Walkers Shortbread is actually Scotlands largest food exporter! Shortbread is fairly simple to make and aside from burning it, not much can go wrong. So if you've not tried making it before (or eating it) start now!

Partly because I do not have enough funds to sponsor something like this.
I decided to up the ante this week and do a PM giveaway too Each month, I will try to give out 2 or more memberships to people! Read the thumb for more info. All big things start small, so this time it'll only be a 1 month membership. But next time, I hope i can make it a 3 month one! Or just give out 2 1-month ones. But trust me, you can do a LOT with a 1 month premium membership. Believe it when I say that if it wasn't for my first premium, I could never have done all these giveaways you see today. Anyway, here's what you need to do to enter: How to Enter: 1. Add this journal to your faves. 1a. Comment below why you want it.

POINT OF SIMPLICI
Alright, kiddies: Listen up!So by now I'm sure a lot of us are aware of Congress' attempt to pass a revised version of the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) act. That one that flipped the entire internet upside down, last year? (I think it was last year. It's been going on for...two years now, I think.) Anyway, I stumbled on it through a couple dA journals that were vastly inaccurate; frightened at first I decided to further research and that's how I discovered the inaccuracies. I've checked multiple websites and though I can't say for sure, the panic on deviantart is absolutely unwarrented.
SO LISTEN UP. THIS IS WHAT THE NEW SOPA TARGETS:
This new SOPA gets straight to the point: its intent is to go after anyone streaming (or covering) copyrighted video or audio and charge them for committing felony. This means if you upload movies on youtube, make music videos with your favorite films/songs,
Artists Toolbox: Airbrushing BasicsToday I'd like to take a moment to talk about airbrushing basics. I feel that it is an art form that is very under represented here on deviantART and perhaps with a little education on it, more people might become interested in airbrushing.
Airbrushing can be used for various different things, from body art, to painting model cars and planes, to painting sculptures, to painting automotives, T-shirts, canvas, even cake decorating, etc etc, the possibilities with airbrushing are pretty limitless and as such can be a wonderful art form to get familiar with and perhaps even utilize yourself. Oh, and did I also mention that airbrushing is fun?
Try it, you'll like it!
Airbrushes come with a few different features which I've outlined below to help make an educated guess on what type would best suit you if this is something you're interested in trying.
dArMC December 2013edit: 15 days left to enter!
Welcome to the deviantART related monthly challenges!
Each month you will be given a theme and two categories from the deviantART related gallery. You then have one month to create something for it. In which way you interpret the theme is up to you, but it has to be for one of the categories chosen.
For each category there will be one winner and one runner up.
Theme & Category
When working on your entries, try to be creative and don't just do the first thing you have in mind. Some categories will be more challenging than others - that's for sure - but maybe it's a good way to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Maybe you will like it!
Your theme for December is:
Winter / Winter Holidays
The categories you should create your entries for are:
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
