''Sequential Art'' CompetitionMy webcomic, Sequential Art, is 10 years old. I started it back in June 2005.As a little celebration, I thought I’d run a contest (something I’d actually been meaning to do for a while).It’s fairly straightforward. There will be two top prizes, each awarded to the best of the following: The best image (best art wins. Simple) and the funniest image (Art quality isn’t as important as the idea behind it).To be in with a chance of winning, all you need do is draw something related to the Sequential Art webcomic. It could be a single character, multiple characters, your own strip, anything. Draw it and post a link to it in the comments section of this journal.First prize for each of the two categories is:A copy of Sequential Art Volume 4A print of the 10 year image (seen below)A free commission (colour. Single character)There will also be 10 runners up (total), each of whom will

Dinki-DiFun new meal. I call it the "Hungry Gyro Captain".First, buy a couple of novelty cocktail cups that look like bean tins.Then, throw together some basic meat and gravy (or just buy a separate tin of the stuff. Stewed beef in gravy is a good one. Has the right look about it)Serve in aforementioned cocktail cup.Eat with wooden spoon while watching Mad Max 2.(Guess who's been playing the Mad Max game?)
OK....I'll play.1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?12 years……woah. It was 10 last time I looked.2. What does your username mean?“JollyJack” is the handle I used when I played my first multiplayer FPS game, Quake 3 Arena. I chose it partly because my name is “Jackson” and partly because I was really in to Victoriana at the time, and nothing said “Late 19th Century” like Jack the Ripper, who was oft referred to as “Jolly Jack”.3. Describe yourself in three words.Really quite busy.4. Are you left or right handed?Which is which, again?5. What was your first deviation?6. What is your favourite type of art to create?I like to tell stories with my art, so, anything that can effectively relay a narrative.7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?Digital painting. I’m quite happy with my linework, but I really wish I could apply colou
The legends were true?!Geek culture has many myths and legends, ranging from fabled disks and cassettes containing unreleased sequels of beloved games to Easter Eggs found only within the code of early versions of certain titles.The most well known of these legends, the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, The Excalibur of Geek mythology, is that of the lost E.T. Cartridges – arguably the worst video game in history - buried somewhere in the New Mexico desert.Now, they’ve been hiding unwanted stuff out in the deserts of America as far back as 1923. When filming finished on Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments, they worked out it’d be cheaper to just bury the set than dismantle it. This lent the E.T. Cart legend a little credibility, but even I was skeptical of anything ever being found….….my word, Indy! My word!http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/04/26/the-dig-uncovering-the-atari-et-games-buried-in-new-
Nothing to see, here.There are only a handful of names on my “block” list. You have to have been a monumental prick in order to earn yourself a place on it. I don’t hide negative comments about my work nor do I block people that write them. It’d make the world a very boring place if you edit it to show nothing but praise. The barbs are what make it interesting and provide points to debate and/or argue.I monitor content on DA via “browse” as it changes regularly and has work that the community thinks to be high quality. It’s generally where I spot artists whose material I want to see more of. Over the past few days, though, after posting a response to DA inexplicably choosing the letter “Z” to be their logo, people mentioned that the “Super Pretentious” cartoon had surpassed DA’s own “Boldly” journal on the “What’s Hot” list. Thinking that to be funny as hell, I switched to “What’s Hot” t
Patience is a virtue, because stupid dies out.After the abysmal reception (due to abysmal performance of) Windows 8, M$ are abandoning that entry.Windows 9 is expected to be announced on September 30th.This is why I’ve kept my crappy old PC. I was waiting before I got a replacement because I knew something like that was gonna happen. I could read the signs. Like tea-leaves….….or, in this case: sh*t-stains.
Oh, is that function useful? We'll just remove it.One of my key research tools when developing a story is Google Maps.....or rather, it was.Google Maps had a Wikipedia layer that brought up links to Wikipedia articles connected to the region you were surveying. It was a brilliant way to learn about locations you have not yet visited, or to delve into an area's history.A week or so ago, and apparently with no warning, Google removed this function and have now been flooded with complaints.Is it just me or are big name companies growing increasingly incapable of doing ANYTHING right?
