howdy,

first of all its a bit late but thanks for the b-day wishes! :D

second, i moved to a new apartment last week and unfortunately I've lost the pen for my digital tablet during the move. i was thinking of buying a new wacom for a while now but i have more urgent expenses for my new place so it'll have to wait. and i don't want to pay $50 for a new graphire3 pen...
im still looking for options or ppl that can lend me their old unused tablets but until i find a solution im afraid i'll be taking a forced hiatus from drawing.

i hope this will be resolved soon so i can get back to my newly found passion for drawing and uploading stuff to my DA account.

wish me luck!

shoze
why not? :)
kiriban goes to :iconjeshika-haruno: congratz!

i'll do the next kiriban when i reach 50k.

thanks for all the faves and comments, you really motivate me to keep drawing :)
im feeling generous. whoever gets the 40k pageview hit gets a pic from me.

good luck and thanks for watching :)
i'm having some technical difficulties with the DA print image preview so i've set up an account on society 6 as well.

you can get your prints here:

society6.com/shoze/browser-war…



hopefully the problems im having on DA will be solved soon
it took a while but i am finally releasing a print version of my browser wars sketch. rejoice!

due to copyright issues i was forced to remove all logo references but i think the point still comes across and its still a nice image to hang next to your computer right?

thank you for all those who supported and commented and pushed me to make this print - i love you all

and "boo" to all those who stole this image and posted it uncredited all over the web - you suck!



you can buy it here:

shoze.deviantart.com/art/brows…
I am sorry but due to copy rights issues i wont be able to upload my browser wars image as a print like i planned.

if you still want one, note me and maybe we can work something out.


On another note, congratz to fading-memories.deviantart.com… and malkarinque.deviantart.com/ who won the 33,333 and 34,567 pv kiribans respectively.
its been a hard artistic year for me but i'm hoping to get back on the horse and to start to update more regularly.

thanks for watching,

Shoze
Hello all,

for those of you who don't know, my "browser wars" 3.bp.blogspot.com/-5jrT94vsbkc… illustration has been getting quite popular these past few days and due to your requests i will be making a printable version that will be available on my DA account.
i will do my best to make it as soon as possible but my free time is only on weekends so it may take some time. i'll update my journal when its done so keep track!

and thank you for all the comments and favs! :)


btw, i might submit a few other prints as well so this is a good time to let me know if you'd like to buy any of my other works. if a particular piece gets enough requests its very possible i'll make it available for print.



and on an unrelated note - I'll be offering a kiriban (gift picture) to the person that gets my 33,333 page view. oh, and another one for the 34,567 page viewer.
good luck :)
i dont know if anyone reads this but a while ago i was asked to do an interview for the first sketchoholic e-mag. one of the questions i was asked there was "what do you think is the most important element in a good image?" i'm always asking myself this question but i never really put it in words until now. if you ever wondered about how i come up with my ideas you might be interested in reading this:

I've been thinking about this a lot. Obviously a solid idea is key but there has to be more to it. there are a lot of beautiful images that don't have a clear narrative or subtext and yet they obviously work. I think it comes down to something I can only call awareness to details. Every time you draw something there are a million of question you can ask yourself. For example: a man holding an apple. on the idea level you can ask: "who is this man?" "why is he holding the apple?" "What are his feelings towards the apple?" "Why?" Each answer you come up with brings a new set of questions and also interesting solutions and subtext to your formally bland image, for example, the man is Adam, Eve just gave him the apple and he's feeling uncomfortable holding the apple since he just took a bite and with his newfound wisdom he realizes that Eve is a bit of a skank... obviously you can keep developing the idea by asking more questions, turning Eve into a strip dancer and the tree to a pole and maybe the snake is sliding singles down her leafy underwear and so on. But its not only about the idea, ask questions about who is you character, what sort of expression does he have considering his nature and the situation he's in? and also, more technical questions like: "how is he holding the apple?" Up high? Arm stretched away with only 2 fingers holding the twig part? Still chewing on it? And even more: how does a hand hold an apple? What muscles are in use? Should I even draw muscles? will a cartoonish stylized character work better? What kind of cartoon style? And of course you need to think about the environment and color – is it morning? Twilight? Summer? Should I make it all green to contrast the red apple? Where is the light coming from? Etc.
The questions here are all mixed up, some of them should be answered before others, like questions that regard style or the general tone of the image and the answers to the follow up questions must support them. this may seem like a lot but this process is fairly fast and muted, other than a couple of main questions to establish an idea this is just something that you should keep track of in the back of your head when you draw your image. the more you practice the easier and faster it gets – usually it takes me less than a minute to come up with an idea and i just keep all the questions running in the back of my head while I work. I think the best artists are the ones most sensitive to details like that.

if you're interested in reading the rest of the interview or just going over some other amazing works done for various sketchoholic contests go here:
