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
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
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
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
updatesokay , so i am all but done with ravine book 2,as that is a printer priority. i have a few more days of that before i start posting new pages of sunstone
next one is more than half done, and i will try to wrap it up in the next 3 days if everything goes right.
and then once ravine is cleared, i can both spam out chapter 4 and wrap up preparations of chapter 1,2 and 3 for print...
besides all the other stuff i'm working on my schedule is just a wee bit erratic...
GOOOD! I LOVE ERRATIC!
scheduleyou probably noticed that last 2 months have been a clusterf#$k. and so will January.
my work schedule was beyond overloaded, and this January i have to finish my last issue of the artifacts comic, while pushing the issue 1 of aphrodite for top cow parallel with ravine and sunstone.
this January is where my schedule cleans up very nicely and then i can get to spamming stuff oldschool style.
also.. just successfully converted entire first chapter of sunstone to print format ..and ended up 71 pages. since i will be publishing printed versions that contain 2 chapters per issue... the damn book will be the size of ravine...
i guess im a sucker for the graphic novel format.
now, unlike ravine, sunstone will be available here in its entirety. printed version will have revised and improved writing and grammar + polished art. so that those who decide to buy the book ...don't feel ripped off XD
i will probably post another strip fairly soon, but the real fun starts in february
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
CANCELLEDTHIS IS CANCELLED !!!
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.
PE: Contest PointersContest Pointers
Contests are everywhere on deviantART, and it seems like there are dozens of new ones cropping up every few weeks. While some of these contests go on to become extremely popular and successful, racking up hundreds of points in prizes and gaining a remarkable number of entries (), some of them flop, flounder, and sadly disappear into obscurity ()
So how does one go about hosting a successful contest? There's no fool-proof, super secret formula, of course, but there are some general tips and guidelines for what you can keep in mind when planning a new contest.
Every contest has a theme, which can range from being very specific to very general depending on what sort of contest you want to hold. Keep in mind what your theme will affect how many people will participate in your contest. A broad theme that anyone can relate to will probably generate more interest than a more specific one that limits the number of
Ignore ThisSorry, I don't have time at the moment to play or add more people ;w; I will add you later when I get some time
I need more people for Pokemon X/Y friend safari :'D
Let me know your friend code and I will add you, Mine is 0130-2979-7272 (name is Yumino)
I currently have no idea what my safari is ;v; I would appreciate if anyone could let me know.
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,

POINT OF SIMPLICI
Devious Journal EntryToday is Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead in English. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died And I thought I'd share this short animation video that I found, which I think is a great example of what this holiday is about.
Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

Un roti de Cupidon"Patron.. je suis pas sûr que ça soit une si bonne idée..."
Un bruissement d'ailes presque froufroutant sur sa gauche le fit se retourner d'un bond, mais il ne put percevoir qu'un bref mouvement du coin de l'oeil. Ils étaient rapides, bien trop rapides. Jamais le vieux ne réussirait. De nouveau ce bruit soyeux, semblable à des ailes de tourterelles, mais bien plus proche. Dans son esprit il pouvait les voir, tournant au dessus de sa tête comme autant de vautours prêts à la curée.
Le bruit assourdi des détonations résonna et tout autour d'Emmanuel une pluie de plumes commença à virevolter tandis que cinq bruits sourds accompagnaient la chute d'autant de corps autour de lui.
"Ramasse les, petit. On a encore du boulot."
Avec une grimace mi admirative, mi dégoûtée, le jeune homme se mit au travail, enfilant des lourds gants de cuir pour se protéger. Son sup

Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is.
