Welp. I've officially sold out...

Buffie go boom by *KirbBrimstone on deviantART

I tried to invented a new style of art and failed.

This isn't vector and it isn't Photoshop filters.

Can you guess the method I used?

100% Photoshop.

If you Google the Buffy the body you'll find the ref photo.

Art sluts

Originally posted on

Wow I'm seeing artists giving away their talent like sluts giving away their body.

Don't they know it has value and it's not to be given up that easy?

Don't they know that this brings down it's value?

Don't they know that nobody buys the cow if you're giving away the milk?

What are they thinking?

"If I draw this character for them and give it up for free more people will notice me and maybe the right guy/gal will come along and love my art."

I hope people out there have read my divergent Muse journal about copyrights. If you haven't you should. Artists have a special and RARE talent. Please stop selling yourself short for attention.

Deviant art has instead become a hub for internet art predictors who take advantage of naive artists trying to get noticed and give up their rights and talents for free (or cheap).

While the predator who has contributed absolutely nothing (save for maybe an idea or character they don't have the capabilities to draw themselves: both of which you can't copyright by the way.) goes ahead and publishes an art book other people worked on.

I wonder if these art pimps know that they don't own the copyright to a single piece of art they've published? Not single one. The artist does.

By law the artists owns the rights to copy the work they create (i.e. copyrights). So they need permission to publish other peoples work. I don't care what the subject matter is.

Predator: But it's based on my character/idea?

Me: So? You can't copy right an idea it's got to be tangible like a painting, music, video, ect.

Predator: But companies own characters all the time?

Me: No. they own the tangible story that the characters was written in.

Predator: Then why can't I make a that looks just like Superman?

Me: You can. Just as long as you don't incorporate certain trademarks like the S shield. Those are TRADEMARKED (not copyrighted) to DC.

I've heard deviantart called "bazaar of artists hocking their wares"

but that's not even right. It's more like a hooker strip where the whores are exchanging sex for attention.

I would stop drawing before I do Pro bono work. I don't mind hooking a friend or family member up but this artistic slutting around has to stop.

If that makes me an unpopular art prude then fine I can live with that.

Afua by *KirbBrimstone on deviantART

There was an idea to draw the other members on this forum at

Everyone posted a picture of them selves ad each artist drew the other. So I joined in and did a couple quick sketches of fellow board members. Then I start sketching this one artist who (let me tell you is a a beautiful subject to paint). So long story short. I start as a sketch then I scrapped it and made a more detailed sketch... then it just snowballed form there and this si the product.

Gosh it feel good to paint something "realistic" again. I hate doing it but I love the result.

I look at my finished work and feel so proud. Yeah I know in a years time I'll look back think it's awful. I'll wonder how I ever consider this good and call myself a hack. But for now I'm going to enjoy this.

The artist who came up with the "draw each other" deal and I "painted" is the very talented Afua Richardson:

If you know who I'm talking about then you'd know an artist of my limited skills could never do her justice.

Guess who just got his Wacom pen in the mail after his old one was stolen????

Randolf?!?!? Who the heck is Randolf?!?!?!?

No! Me that's who.

I wanted to stretch my art muscles and make sure I wasn't too rusty so I threw some color on a sketch I did earlier:

Yea so here it is.
