* FAQ and COMMISSION WORKS  apofiss.deviantart.com/journal…

a quick update; thank you all for all the early happy birthday wishes! :] there are quite a lot of things I should write and answer so a bigger journal entry is coming soon! I will also write more about t-shirts / mugs ( mugs with/out captions as requested but not availavle here on dA ) thus my also soon coming zazzle.com store~

p.s. sad new about Steve Jobs indeed, feels odd.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
prvious journal entry:

it's been a while since the last update! these past weeks have been bussier than ussual and even so I don't think that stopped me from drawing and painting even more or at least as much as normally I would, and I tell you I don't really draw that much at all D: about new things you can expect from me; new Panda Live Wallpaper for Android 2.1+ phones should be up soon sometime this or next week ( based on "panda" artwork apofiss.deviantart.com/art/pan… ). I guess you already know about new Calendar 2012... apofiss.deviantart.com/art/cal…

btw I managed to watch ALL 331 epsodes of Bleach! plot, characters... I really enjoyed it :] wont toss around with critics as every big anime has its fillers ( actually also an enjoyable part of it all ). there are a lot more good stuff to mention, but I will let a twitter to handle that! as for more of recorded videos on youtube and what not - that all will come~

commission works are open ( also commission info and T&C are updated ) apofiss.deviantart.com/journal… ...people who are in waiting list will get their commissions first ( I will note you soon! ). for now I wont open more than 5 slots and considering waiting list there are roughly 5 or less slots left~

p.s. I will set up more general FAQ to cover lots of asked questions soon.

*COMMISSIONS / trades / requests / F.A.Q. > apofiss.deviantart.com/journal… <


kind of a request ( for those who got any of these apofiss.deviantart.com/art/mug… mugs ) could you please post a photo on how it looks? that would be great to see :] if you are willing to share please note me a photo/link here on dA notes~

other than that I'm slowly working on new ideas ( not just cats themed ) and can't wait to share those, right after ( or during ) I'll finish commission works!


[ journal entry May 1 ]

hey! hi! ...hello! I've been interviewed by Topicality on her dARenaissance article here news.deviantart.com/article/14… ...also you may suggest other artists to be featured in the next interview/article and find out lots of useful things about their art and what not.

another thing, I posted new speedpaint and I'm guessing you are already well aware of that :} www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQa-T4…

about my game/app, animation and screensaver project; it's not gone, its still in works yet things progress slow becouse of various reasons ( deciding platform, distribution matters, must work on animations first which is the main part of it all ) ...sooner or later this personal project will see the light.

last but not least, actually most fun part is a release of Portal 2 which turned out to be too amazing! there is no place for words, one just should play it throught... I so ****ing love it! "spaaaaaaace!" ;]

p.s. oh and recently I started to watch bleach, it's actually a fine anime, similar to Naruto in some ways, actually in lots of ways...

did I miss something? hmm. right! could someone recommend me a good artbook to get? I'm thinking to make one too, sometime... so I should get some grasp on basic idea of how other artists does it, yet I have this idea to make it somehow idiomatic, peculiar, odd... apofiss-tish(?) :D

mini update - for those who asked for panda prints; tiny, medium and large sized is on www.deviantart.com/print/18264…? and www.deviantart.com/print/18265…? c:


[ previous journal post. ]

>> Cat and a Box << CLICK to watch video! this is like a warm-up/opening video to this channel, for fun :} later i'll make sure to post some recorded speedpaints and what not!


[ previous journal post. ]

about the app/game in works, at the moment it’s a small personal project which consists of 3 parts: a screensaver ( so far for windows only ), a little flash based game and a short animation ( a subject to change ). two latter should be for free while the screensaver would go for a symbolic pay per download (im guessing $0.99?) So far the screensaver has progressed the most and i approve – it does look magical already :] *i literally looked at it like zombified lol* even thought it’s not even in alpha phase. so far by a default this project features two characters – black cat Yin and  panda ( name is unknown ). when does it all comes out? no specific date/order on this... whenever it’s ready! around spring time, maybe.

writtings feature! a short story eowyn-saule.deviantart.com/art… by Eowyn-Saule, inspired by 'marching on' image and a poem xglide.deviantart.com/art/Betw… by xglide, inspired by 'i be firefox' image ...go a check them out, short and beautiful reading material!

also im slowly compiling more complete FAQ ( feel free to ask any questions in journal comments which you think should be answered in FAQ ) which should be on in a few days, just like the soooo prolonged speedpaint video like coming soon forever... and thank you for all the uplifting, in-depth comments and support in general *group hug* :]

damn, whenever i write new journal i tend to forget something! right, not to worry, more wallpapers will come :}

last but not least, the petition against cats abuse (which seems already ended) www.gopetition.com/petition/39… ...just keep an eye on and do support such petitions, the least thing one can do. thanks to Rueme for letting me know.

early happy new year, everyone!

***

just in case if anyone wants to see how my 'cats' calendar 2011 looks in real life (every single part of it!) desertskald.deviantart.com/gal… ...thanks DesertSkald for your effort :]

***

my first daily deviation! apofiss.deviantart.com/art/can… ...it does feel special thanks to all of you who suggests DD, supports or are simply around here :] should we do a group hug? ;D one more wallpaper coming up as a little thank you (most probably last work from me this year, except tutorial and speedpaint video) and later im thinking to do some features or kiriban dA points giveaway hmm~

***

i was wondering if anyone who got (whenever you receive it) calendar 2011 (the one made by me) could possibly sometime later post/share some pics on how does it look in real life? on your wall, desk, ect? that would be amazing, i'd appreciate that :] i can't have it myself, dA doesn't ship to my place :/

***

updates on quick sketches, works in progress, reminders and randomness... i'll try to stuff it all there on twitter. how to paint water tutorial and speedpaint video, im slowly working on it!

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 16, 2010, 9:21 AM
i have been thinking about creating a background story ( more like ideas which im trying to compile together ). about the ever mysterious 'black cat' with or without smoking eyes... depends hmm.

Andaelentari thank you for a sub! :] somehow before i wasn't able to see 'who gave it'.

last but not least, THANK you for all the support, comments *still going through them* and input... much appreciated :] p.s. F.A.Q. and commission info is about to be updated.

AND a song of the day for ya www.youtube.com/watch?v=TM6TCG… ...love it ;D


----------------------------------

[october 11th]

this is it! *likes to say 'this is it!' ...enjoys all the nice bday wishes* thank you all amazing, inspiring people here at dA *group hug!* :] some people even sent me dA points, thank you too! (you know who you are). having a bit busy second part of this mounth so im hoping to be back with more decent works by the end of october!

other than that i'll put up more prints in the coming days, mostly for the few last works (many print requests!). will try to re-organize 'useful info' part in a seperate journal AND i should update f.a.q.!

also, i watched Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole! all in all it's worth seeing; it has its special moments with beautiful animation/emotion/etc while it also has few 'holes' (weak spots?) within few scenes like some happening did not convince the viewer at all (not at least an adult viewer) and left with "umm ok..." it's not a new epic 'lion king' for the new generation yet animation, soundtrack, visuals wise - it is must see! 8/10

Stichflamme gets 400 points as she was the fastest one to note/link me with the closest kiri. congrats :]

also, i think someone gave me an extra 3 month subscription! i'm not sure who hmm... but thank you, i appreciate that :]


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

check new links below (under 'new links'), some real good stuff - learnign wise.

useful info / links

i have this idea for a while now to post some good useful links i have stumbled upon during unknown time of period or lately i guess (tutorials on how to draw all kinds of anatomies, painting techniques or even artwise theories in generl - mostly videos thus having more in-depth understanding). if you have any good stuff to share you are very welcome to do so :]

[ new links ] :

www.youtube.com/user/marcobucc… - marco bucci youtube channel; i personally watched through 'painting fundementals' www.youtube.com/user/marcobucc… video tutorial which gives a lot of useful tips, and 'warm up sketch' www.youtube.com/user/marcobucc… - inspired my last deviation (thought i always wanted to find a good lightning/shadow technique for town-scapes)

www.youtube.com/user/drawtips - another youtube channel; want to learn draw human figures, hands, etc? that is a place to stop by. it wont probably show hot to draw beautiful beauties YET it covers the basic fundementals/tips.

www.youtube.com/user/moatddtut… - lots of techniques/tips; stumbled upon this in a serach for landscape sketching www.youtube.com/user/moatddtut…. good stuff, still have to look through it~


just in case, i have a growing interest in doing some more collabs (not now! sometime soon) :]

[your motto]
so, i'm sure everyone has some tendency while doing art, working on it, thus leading to a motto(?) like "i take my time in a name of quality" or "art is time, time is money, i do it fast" or even "only traditional!" etc etc... So, just for fun, what's yours? ;D

mine could be "do more with less" :D like why would i need a new software if the old one still does the job just fine ...and so on~


inspired! just something to share- inspiration of the late night; something you cannot not to be inspired by... damn his hands moves lightning fast and the composition itself mmm :]
