This year at #SDCC, we brought the Thunder!
^ Does this guy look like he had a good time??? You will too as we journey through
DeviantArt's Artists' Alley, and take a look at our Superstars of DeviantArt, We
The Fandom and Fan Art Law PII panels. The first appearance of FELLA, the launch
of MILK FOR THE UGLY to riveting success, and my girlfriend o-KOUKLA-o inspired,
scared and twisted Comic-Con as The Joker with her friend Diana as Bane!
The DeviantArt / Madefire Preview Night Party!Thunder wasn't all we brought, we also brought Madefire to the creator world during this
con, and here's the party that kicked that off! Wait, is that a line around the block?
and a heap of industry and press friends lined up for the open bar.
... And the killer company.
, then a rare photo of spyed

work of a deviant who goes by the name of Zirngibl
We were riveted. A true highlight of
the evening to meet such a talented woman. Check out her work she is seriously one of
my new absolute +Favorite artists. +Watch, +Love. And you'd be silly if you weren't

We're very, very proud to Present this motion book on many, many levels. Our first major
hit with MADEFIRE

the #1 Motion Book on the Madefire platform. Greater viewership than Batman

's Milk for the Ugly

motion book get
glomped by our very own damphyr

Did he get his hugs on?? Heck yah! That's how Fella rolls!
DeviantArt Artists' Alley 2014
Photos apparently can't do this thing justice on the whole, but if you put it all
together in your mind from all the pieces here, you'll appreciate the beauty
of what is happening in Artists' Alley. Please be sure to read my past journal
about this alley called: The Love that Binds SDCC's Artists' Alley
. A million
thanks, and all our love to clydene
^ We're missing makepictures
in this photo - But without him, and withouttechgnotic
who is standing next to me here, we couldn't pull off Artists Alley each
year. SO, a great big thank you to both makepictures
amazing, always a pleasure.
^ Ahh... There's makepictures
on the left! We're just getting warmed up.
I sincerely want you to see how packed the Alley was this year. But in an epic fail,
we didn't actually capture many long or wide shots this time around. If you were at
the con and you nabbed some, please link them for us! Yikes!!!! This video I took
is pretty much the only one. Sorry it's not that great!
- Chief Creative Officer for Madefire.
Truly a gentleman and a scholar. Here he tells us the ways of life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness ... in bed!
Quite seriously, Liam's contributions to the DeviantArt community recently absolutely
astound me. Perhaps one of the most important conversations happening on
DeviantArt, and easily the most important conversation happening in the entire
comic book industry is the one that is happening right now on LiamSharp
Go to his Journal
and start with a post written on June 4th titled, "I Got Angry.
Engage in the dialog. Read what people are saying in response. Why? Because if
you want to be on the bleeding edge of storytelling, LiamSharp
is the key to the door
of the future.
^ My kick ass girlfriend o-KOUKLA-o
who scared the hell out of everybody with our
friend Diana Rios as Bane. Aren't they lovely? I think so.
^ Ahh, the love of my life.

our very favorite autodesk-sketchbook

(Milk for the Ugly)
Unfortunately as of this writing I don't have any photos for two of the panels,
I will be updating once I do. They are the FANS, LOVE, AND THE LAW panel,
and the MAYA 3D MODELING SOFTWARE ft. FELLA panel. They were great!
What else happened??
Is that the legendary Kim Jung Gi
says that he just can't stand this guy because there is simply nothing
to learn from him. he explains; how can you learn when Kim Jung Gi
walks up to a blank canvas, and draws an entire world without any process
at all!he sees his drawing in his mind, and he puts it to paper directly.
there is no
process! you can't learn when there is just genius, and no process! - great point.
And I hear he may be joining DeviantArt soon, so you
can be marveled and learn
nothing from him other than f34r of true, raw, hardcore deviousness. muahaha
It was an honor to meet you, sir! we hope you will join our community and offer
whatever you are willing, to our humble and loving home of DeviantArt!
Speaking of Artgerm
