tagged by the illustrious :iconteryster:, so here goes!!!!!!111!!!

FACTS:
1. I get laughed out of shoe stores because my size is just one unit smaller than the typical, giant, BORING men's shoe sizes.
2. My favourite foods usually have red sauce.
3. I hardly ever finish video games. I usually max out my characters and equipment just before the end and then I lose interest.
4. I love looking at airsoft stuff and dressing up in them tactical gears but I'm too much of a timid coward to play seriously.
5. I was born 32 years ago, but I always just say I'm 23 and people buy it!
6. Sometimes I grow a beard so I can shave it off and instantly look 10 years younger. OH BLESSED GENES
7. On a related note, try as I might, I'm unable to grow sideburns. CURSED GENES
8. I have never finished Deadly Premonition even though I'm 'that guy who defends that game 'till his last breath'.
9. My favourite anime character is Hasegawa from Gintama because we're all Useless Old Men, sometimes.... 
10. I looooves me some cosplay and I love the effort everyone puts into their costumes but I don't think I'd look right cosplaying anything myself. I'm too French-looking! 

1) TELL US ABOUT YOUR ART PROJECTS, WHAT ARE YOU UP TO?
- Right now I only have my own comic thingy to worry about! I've been cutting down on the art projects and commissions stuff. Kinda burned out on drawing and artsing ATM..
 
2) What part of the art process do you enjoy the most? (ex. sketching, finishing details, ...) and why?
- Sketching for sure! So much energy and ambition (that usually gets lost along the way)

3) Is there an artist from history that you would totally want to hang out with?
- NO! I would feel so inadequate and uncultured! 

4) Are you struggling with something in particular with your art right now?
- Getting motivated to start on something? :p

5) "I CAN'T DIE YET I HAVEN'T-"
WATCHED ALL THE X-FILES YET!!!!!

6) Any sleeping habits?
- Short and sweet! 

7) Do you have any kind of art that makes you immediately go weak at your knees? Like you see a shape/colors/style and you beg for mercy because IT'S JUST SO BEAUTIFULLL
- Anything with ANGLES and MAGENTA. Also, everything :iconzeroxtb: makes. 

8) What is the ultimate in-comfort-zone thing you could draw? DON'T HOLD BACK
- Badass dude with a gun?

9) What boosts you up? What makes your heart jump? WHAT MAKES YOU ALIVE?
- Anything Jojo-related gets my tiny fists a-clenched and hotblooded.

10) WHAT IS THE FUNNIEST THING THAT COMES TO YOUR MIND NOW? Joke, story, video, whatever!
THIS

I ain't tagging no-one! The curse ends with me!

STARVING ARTIST'S LIFE pt.2

Journal Entry: Sun May 18, 2014, 2:15 AM
How is everyone! Good, hopefully! Following up on my previous journal post, here's an update (should you be wondering haha) 

Looks like things'll be a ghost town on this here account for a while. I've taken the leap to getting a night shift job stacking boxes in a warehouse leaving me with next to no time for drawing stuff. I'll be putting all the hours I'm not sleeping/working/sleeping after getting home into working on AMP: Year One www.kickstarter.com/projects/e… . I'll also be translating and uploading my comic OTFS over the next few weeks so that's also super cool!

On the flipside, I won't be having any time to take commissions or take on other projects (unless it pays so handsomely it'll pay my rent and food and such). Even after AMP Year One is done, I'm thinking of only spending time on personal/fun projects, like OTFS!

TL;DR
ARTIST 2 BUSY
COMMISSIONS CLOSED

STARVING ARTIST'S LIFE

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 25, 2014, 3:23 AM
'Sup fellow deviants! Hopefully everyone's keeping up with their projects and work! Me, I've taken the leap to stop stacking boxes in a warehouse and to start putting my talents to work as an illustrator. While it's an awesome dream to do what we as artists love and get paid for it, the reality is that unless you're REALLY lucky and well connected breaking into the scene is a slow and difficult process. I'm facing a very insecure financial future and it's stressing me out.

I don't like to come asking, and I'm not. I've come offering! I want to work for you! Whether it's personal commissions or you know/have a studio that need an awesome versatile artist, I'm your man. I don't do freebies and I'm aiming to draw for a living so I can't go too cheap, but feel free to inquire about my rates for your specific needs. 

so yeah, TL;DR
ARTIST LFW

COMMISSIONS OPEN

BOTH PROFESSIONAL AND FANART/OC

Whoa, you guys! So much love and faves and watches all of a sudden! You humble me :D

I need to get better, WAY better at arting! My skills just aren't keeping up with my vision anymore. So.. time for practicing like crazy and getting inspired! TIME TO GIT GUD

Everyone, do your best, too! I've been looking back through your (yes, YOUR) gallery to see how much progress you've mad over the time I've watched you and let me tell you, you've become quite the artist! So keep it up :)
[UPDATE] Ha! Guess I've been frikkin' april FOOLed! You've won this time, DA!

Anyone checked it out? It paired me off with a hot cutey! Off course, I'm not going to actually message her and stuff, but I'm just curious what these supposed 'algorythms' of DA are that decide the match..
..
On second thought, maybe I should try for her. For SCIENCE.
Wow! A particularly vigilant Deviant, :iconlolimoog:, made me aware some of my drawings (fan-pieces, of course) are being posted on tumblr! How cool :) Maybe I should put up a tumblr of my own, too..

I've also been considering putting up commissions now that I'm an active artist again. Maybe even dark souls character commissions? I wonder if it would take off?

UUUUHHHHH

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 3, 2013, 9:27 AM
Truly, you guys humble me! The amount of faves and watches I've been getting over the past few days has been astounding! Thank you! I'll do my best to keep the pressure on and give you more cool art to look at!

Oho! Looks like the poll deciding what to name my comic is getting pretty interesting! Bullethound Howling got the majority of the votes in the beginning, but Dystopia Romantic seems to have caught up now!

Speaking of that damn comic of mine, the pages are coming along NICELY. I'll colour in some more pages in advance and whip up a nice cover/promotional image for it before I start uploading. But man, we're super close now! Expect the first pages to hit the internet RIGHT THIS F**KING WEEK.

Now I want to know about you guys. How was your week?

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 12, 2010, 2:19 AM
Lots of people seem to be finding my humble little page on DA. Welcome and thanks for the support! This is especially awesome since so many people faved 'em this also means my top two fav'd deviations are actually drawings of Nate, my comic-in-the-makings protagonist, knocking those pesky naruto fanarts of the top spots.

School's been taking up most of my time, but that doesn't stop me oh no! The character designs for the comic are coming along juuuust fine. Thing is, I really have no idea how to handle the story. Sure I've got the prologues for each character all scripted out and I've got some pretty rad ideas on some major plot points but the story itself..I mean, extreme perspective ultra-violence can get you so far, but I really do want to create a comic with an engaging storyline with characters that have their own distinct personality without alienating the readers.

Food for thought!

Your name?
Monster Monsieur Maxim

If possible, your age?
Way too old for you, hun.

When did you start drawing?
Final Fantasy 7-ish.  

Which hand do you use for drawing?
My second hand

Which is easier to draw - male or female?
Dudez. Women always complicate things with their womanly ways.

Which is easier to draw - long hair or short hair?
Short, I guess? Doesn't really matter anyway if I can cheat by making it all pitch-black.

Is it easier to draw the head facing towards the right or the left?
the left.

Is it easier to draw the side view of the face or the front view?
I don't want to face the characters I draw head on, it makes me feel guilty.

What do you have problems in drawing?
Drawing in general, finishing up stuff, drawing backgrounds.

What do you like to draw?
I've really been into drawing skeletons lately!

Are you a traditional artist or a digital artist?
I ain't no artist, boy!

Where do you start drawing from?
I usually start out with drawing random clunky shapes of the whole figure in general.

What is your drawing habit that you are aware of?
I like to sit down with an amaretto and a cigar and go from there. It usually ends up in useless pages with vague silhouettes scrawled all over 'em.

Any tips for coloring/shading?
Approach it like a graphic design. Don't think about what the colours should be, think about what they look like together in a composition. Go nuts.

How long does it take to finish a piece of art?
Most of my work never really gets properly finished at all!

After having been inactive for a long time, I'll finally be returning to my wicked ways (hopefully) tomorrow with a new coloured deviation :)

I say inactive, but actually I've been sketching and thumbnailing pretty much constantly in my sketchbooks. My comic is pretty much under way too, but I won't post that until I feel it's finished enough for showing you guys.

Buying Street Fighter IV on 360 (my gamertag is GreaseFunky, feel free to challenge me for some easy wins. I royaly suck at this game) actually got me all motivated again to make some new drawings!

I guess me being idle cost me a lot of active viewers, yes? I'm getting pretty close to the 10.00o pageviews mark. Capture it and I'll make you something good of your choosing, provided you care haha.

So let's hear it! Which of you guys are still on board with me?

While it may seem I am neglecting my manly promise that I would update with MOAR ORIGINUL ART, I have actually been busy making stuff (:iconzeroxtb:'s meme for one, is a huge project)! It's just that it's a big thing that takes so much time and you know how lazy I get and then there's so much One Piece episodes for me to catch up on etc.

long story short: I'm slow as fuck and I need to update! But it's gonna be sooo worth it when I do!

Also, thank you guys for watching me! Thanks to the awesome guys who have been supporting me all the way before and thanks to all the awesome artists who have been finding their way to my humble little gallery more recently!

I realise that while I don't have that many pageviews or watchers, the people that do notice the little cardboard box that is my gallery in the corrupt metropolis are all of a very unique flavour of people. I happily trade large quantities of anonymous pageviews for just a few appreciators and friends of high quality, so to speak haha.

Naw but seriously, you guys inspire me. Keep doing what you do.
