Hey guys/girls

it sure has been a while, I'd be lying if I say I didn't miss hanging around here. 

It's been a pretty crazy year, can't remember the last time I had a full 2 day weekend. In this time and age, I'm very thankful to have work but I do hope I can get  a bit more free time soon, so I can upload stuff and talk to you guys like I used to. 

my schedule is split into about 6 different projects, I wish I didn't have to, but its just how it works sometimes for free lance work. 
With a plan to free up some hours in the summer, I really hope to be more active again soon, as you can suspect there were quite a few drawings done for the time I was MIA. 

anyways, thats a lot of words about me, if you are up to it, let me know what you been up to as well. 

cheers!

yeah, i know, even I forgot they are there sometimes. However, my friend took a bigger interest in these and decided to make a project out of them. We started our Facebook page www.facebook.com/thebeardcomic and its own website. 

I'm still rather new to this type of comical approach, it'd be awesome to have you guys be a witness as I work to get better at this. =] 

a "like" on our Facebook page is much appreciated, and as a starting promotion; I will pick 3 names from those who liked it and will give them a free sketch in this kind of quality. 
Day 10: Humbaba by Wen-M no real people portraits please. XD
This promotion period starts now and ends at midnight of Feb 12. The lucky 3 will be picked then. 

cheers! Happy reading and Liking =D


ah, one update on the OC and OC drawing journals, gonna put this on hold until I can get more free time. @__@ Hope to resume next month (March)
new deadline is midnight of 6th. thanks!




I'll actually offer two OC for your choice this month. you can draw one of them, or both, drawing both WILL increase the chances to win, and it is possible for one person to win both!

the prize is one year of Deviantart membership. 

ok, here are the two OC you can draw, please ask their owners for story or other details =]


Rando Profile by Ronin-ink

Eve to Mary by Cuddlemoe

You have 2 weeks (until Jan 4th, 2014)
all media welcome (colored pencils, photoshop, whatever you see fit)

Please note me with your entry image link and not comment with it here, It tends to discourage less confident artists. 

thank you, happy holidays, happy drawing! 
for anyone new to this, this is a 2 part event. 

the first part would be asking you to submit your original character for a random selection, this can be an image or description, but please keep descriptions short. you will have 10 days to submit your OC(until the 20th of this month) and then 1 OC will be randomly chosen to go into the next part of the event. This part is completely random, everyone has equal chance of getting chosen. This OC can be a completely original creation, or a fan-fic character of existing games or anime. one entry per person please. You may enter one OC every month regardless of your previous winning status. 

this 1 OC becomes the character to be drawn, this will be a contest. the owner of the OC will be the judge of the contest, and the winning artist of the drawing contest will be awarded 1 year of membership on DA. this part is based on the preference of the owner of the OC.  You may enter 1 drawing every month regardless of your previous winning status. 

This isn't a lot for a prize, but if you think this is worth your effort, then do it, if not, nothing is lost. 

if I didnt' explain that well...heres an example

Event part 1, 60 people submit their character into the : OC entry journal for (month here), lets say OC #20 is picked to be drawn. 

Event part 2, 40 people submit their drawing to the contest of drawing OC #20, owner of OC #20 picks the drawing he/she likes the best, that winning artist gets 1 year of membership on DA.

check it out! www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

Pete is an awesome, awesome artist and friend, if you are still thinking of a good gift for a friend or just treat yourself, please consider this. =D
Apology for such a delay, (a whole month...OTL)

First I will feature all the entries, if i misses yours please note me and i will add it. =D 

added 1 entry that was missed.

congrats to the winner, and congrats to all who participated, good work, and i hope good practice for your skill! 

I will make a new journal for the Dec entry in a couple of days. 




thank you!
Sera, the Mage of Darkness by tiffanyd02
please ask the owner for any questions regarding this character =] 

As the surprise for this month, 1 additional OC will be sketched by moi. 8D (continues to be annoying by not announcing who is picked) You shall know when its the end of the month. 

OTL i totally confused people, sorry for the frequent update but let me explain. 

you can "enter your OC in the comments" (the OC entry of this month ended by the way, it ends on the 15th)

but to encourage more "drawing entries" please do not show off what you drew in the comments, because some artists will get discouraged if they see a drawing better than theirs, and they decide to not enter because they will not win. as an attempt to make sure EVERYONE who wants to enter, enters. please do not show your "drawing" entry as a comment, instead link your drawing to me in a note.

So, I wanted you guys to know about this awesome convention happening in India. One of my friends is one of the organizers, so I agreed to help pitch in. This is India's first "by fans, for fans" anime con, and it's happening from the 8th to the 10th of November!

Here is their page, go have a look:

www.facebook.com/NihonsaiIndia (you need to have a facebook account to see this page!)

What's even more awesome is the series of contests they're having, both online and offline, which include cosplay contests and an art contest. I'm giving away two one year dA subs for the art contest as well!

You don't need to be IN India to take part in a lot of these, so go see!

And if you have any questions, take them to ~Calyptra or message the event page!

yes, not a joke. if you like cats and will provide a place for this little one, please read  San Diego kitty adoption HELP~!!Sooooo see this cute kitty? He needs a new home, and stat. > 3<
My husband and I just moved to San Diego Ca and as we're in the military, our housing options are so limited. And the  house we just got into this coming Monday .. Only allows one pet.. And we lied as we have two.
As I'm going to be getting a job as soon as I can, I won't have enough time to give him as much attention as he needs and deserves (our other is more of a loner )
He -just- had his shots. He's fixed and never sprays. he's somewhere between 7-10 years old but will live for another 7-10 at -least- and despite his age he's still as energetic as day one that we adopted him. He's long haired but keeps himself super clean and fluffy, only a bit of hair ball medicine now and then and he's all good. He does love to play and he's definitely a lap cat, liking to snuggle close for warmth. (Unfortunately he hates our other cat and gets ticked whenever she's near so he doesn't snuggle with me as

Hiya

thank you to everyone who entered their OC and participated in drawing the chosen OC, the winner for April OC drawing is :icongeardrafter: his drawing is herePtikarka Sketch Card by geardrafter

I want to say again that this contest isn't about the prize or wether the judging part is fair, to judge fairly is a long and difficult task and I frankly don't want to get into it. The deciding factor of winning could be based on quality, but also could be based heavily on the judge's preference. In the end, this contest is about practice and self-enrichment, not about the prize, not about the fairness of the judge. It is about your own improvement.

just wanted to say that, now, onto the May OC entry journal.
