Update and SORRYThought it was time I switched out the Christmas theme on my profile for something more Easter/Spring-ish. Though it's still on the chilly side in these parts, the weather is slowly getting warmer. I'm very much looking forward to longer days and pleasant temperatures, even if it's at the expense of an hour's sleep this weekend.Before I go any further, I wanted to mention something which I posted in my Status box...OMG...I'm Sorry!I am usually adamant about replying to all comments. Even if they are very old (yes, I've been known to reply to comments 9 months later ). Unfortunately, something happened and all the messages prior to February disappeared. And there were a lot of them. This is really upsetting, but there is no way to get them back. So, I am issuing a huge apology to everyone. If I didn't reply to a general comment on my art, let me extend a huge "THANK YOU" for taking an interest in my work and taking the time to comment. If you
Top-10 Arts of 2015This is something I do every year, look back on my gallery and pick my top-10 favorite deviations. This year I suffered with terrible depression throughout most of the year. While I mentioned it here and there, only a few of my friends knew the true extent and severity of it. And, as much as I'd like to say otherwise, I'm still not all-together over it. That said, looking back at how little art I created in 2015 doesn't entirely surprise me. Though, on the flip side, the fact I was able to create so much art despite being in such a dark place most of the time is encouraging. It really does show the importance of art and how it touches your spirit. Anyhow, despite making so little, I'm happy I managed quite a few pieces I'm really proud of. So, without further ado, my top-10 picks for 2015...10 - Seems like I've managed only one font a year for the past few years. Sadly, the main reason for this is that my font program, which I heavily depended on, stopped wor
Happy HolidaysAs I ready to do the last-minute cooking and gift-wrapping, and prepare to spend the holiday with my family, I want to take a moment to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday (whatever you celebrate). It's been another rough year for me, but despite it all, DA is always a place I can come to find friendship, comfort and solace.I will now leave you with one of two holiday emoticon/pixel videos which Ravenswd and I created a few years ago. I'm linking the Youtube for ease of viewing, but you can also see/fave it on DA below. (You can see the second one on my :devmirz333 account.)Musical Emote Christmas Lights
2015 Online Videos FTW!Top 10 VideosAs in past years, my family puts together a list of some of our favorite videos around the web. We send this list to our friends and family and it's become quite a tradition for us. We have a great time coming up with the selections, and our friends look forward to seeing what we found! I've shared the list before on dA, and since a few people seem to like it, I am continuing the tradition. Here's the 2015 list! Joyous Quartet - This group of junior musicians is simply amazing. And they seem to be having so much fun, too. Great song to top it off. A must-see. The Casebook of Nips & Porkington - I simple adore how stylized and clever this short is. Seriously, there is so much to look at with this rather unique animation. One of my favorites on this year's list.
Artists of Relativity - Vol. 23A series which will feature artists and artwork from the Relativity serial, which is published over on my mirz333 account and can be found at RelativityComic. As I frequently showcase work from the series, I also wanted to promote the individual artists and feature some of their other work. This series will spotlight deviants who have created art for us through commissions, gift-art, contest-entries, requests or other means. Published on a periodic (i.e. every-now-and-then) basis:This issue: :iconcostalonga: and :iconxzentrisch:Costalonga Relativity Art Other Art by Costalonga Costalonga offers commissio
UpdateEditing to add...Hello and welcome to all of the new visitors and watchers to this account. I was very surprised to see DA used my "turkey la" emote in their Thankgiving message. It makes me happy as I create my emotes to be used and shared. Anyhow, I am currently in the middle of NaNoEmo which means I try to make 30 emotes in 30 days. I'm a bit off due to a fall I had recently, but I do have several more I'll be posting in coming days.Thank you to everyone for your greetings, well-wishes, and comments. I make a huge effort to reply to every message, so you should be hearing from me sooner or later (hopefully sooner).*** Cross-posted with my mirz333 account. ***Thank you for all of the well-wishes. I haven't had a moment to reply, but with the long Thanksgiving weekend, I hope to be on track and answering messages over the next few days. I'm doing a bit better. Still very sore. Need to heal a bit more before I can start physical therapy for the bursitis. Just hopeful I'll
PSA*** Cross-posted on my mirz333 account: ***Shortly after my last journal -- about 2 weeks ago -- I had an accident. I fell down a full flight of stairs. My foot missed one of the steps. Problem was, I had a cup of coffee in my hand by the side of the railing. Despite letting go of the cup (yes, coffee EVERYWHERE), I couldn't grab on fast enough. I pitched forward and somersaulted down to the bottom, landing on my shoulder/face. Yes, I was lucky I didn't break my neck...the doctor even said so. I ended up quite injured: fractured shoulder, concussion, and tons of bumps and bruises. And, now to learn that I also have bursitis in each shoulder. To tell you the truth, the bursitis is more painful than the other stuff, OMG.While that is a funny image (and yes, I need to laugh or else I'll cry), I have been using my story to remind people that a fall can happen. Also to stress that if you walk down holding your coffee or whatever, make sure it's in you
Oh, Good Grief...It's kinda funny. There are so many movies people are looking forward to seeing this year, from Avengers 2 earlier this year, to the next big one being Star Wars. But the one that I was most excited for was the Peanuts Movie. I have been a huge fan since I was a kid and was just uber-excited to see Snoopy and the Gang formally introduced to a whole new generation. Anyhow, yesterday, I saw the movie and I loved it to pieces. It totally inspired me to seek out some Peanuts art on DA. Since there is so much, I thought it would be fun to give it a feature. Be sure to visit the pages of these artists to give them a fave, a comment, or a watch. :iconnbsp::iconnbsp::iconnbsp:
Welcome to 2015 NaNoEmoNovember is almost here and Synfull and I (Mirz123) and I are happy to announce the 2015 NaNoEmo! Since Synfull wrote up a great journal that explains the event a few years ago, I will defer to that. Just a note to remember -- this event is meant to be fun and non-stress. Whether you make 1 emote or all 30, the goal is to get pixelling and create more than your normally would. So, without further ado...:iconsynfull:What is NaNoEmo?NaNoEmo is a fun emoticon challenge hosted every November to match up with NaNoWriMo in the literature community. Over the last 4 years we have had a fair number of emoticonists taking part and some fantastic emotes appearing all through the designated month.The main purpose of the challenge is to encourage emoticonists to make emotes throughout the month of November. The most common challenge undertaken is to make 30 emotes in 30 days, though others choose to set alternative targets

HIRING ARTISTS!!!Hi everyone!I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking

The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.http://www.scottgames.com/akaI was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality. Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th
Lackadaisy - PatreonI've recently left my job in the game industry so that I could focus more of my time and attention on Lackadaisy. Patreon is my weapon of choice in trying to see this to fruition.If more Lackadaisy comic updates, illustrations, tutorials, mini-comics, books and other things interests you, please do check it out!Notes on Character DesignI received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.First, some general things...- Relax.Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,
