SMOKER9's News


Hey guys. So I might be becoming less active then usual on this site for a time being. The reason for that is i'm finally getting back into webcomics after longer then a year hiatus from it. I'm going to be working on 3 or more webcomics, which will take up a good amount of my time. When I get them up and running i'll put a link up on here for you guys to check out. But just wanted to explain why I might be less active on here for a bit, in case anyone wonders, lol. Might also be doing a youtube series with my friends about what it's like starting up an indie comic group and doing webcomics. Just be something fun to do, like a production diary, those things seem to be popular these days, lol. Then you guys can finally see the man behind these drawings. And the monster that lives under my bed. HE IS REAL AND DO NOT SAY I'M CRAZY OR I WILL RIP YOUR FACE OFF AND NAIL IT TO A CABBAGE PATCH KID!! Anyways. Yaw. So i'll be off here for a bit. I'll still be on as much as possible to see how everyone's doing, and to check out new art and stuff. But won't be uploading as much drawings. So yaw. Happy October folks! See you on Halloween! (hopefully lolz)



Yaw, so I'm probably going to go through and delete some of my drawings to make room for new drawings. Mainly just drawings that I don't particularly like, and others that didn't get great reviews. That's not me being emo, I just don't want to start turning my newgrounds account into a dumbing place for all my drawings. I started up a new gallery folder on my deviantart where i'm going to be uploading doodles whenever i'm bored. So if you ever want to see my doodles from boredom, go check them out there. 

As for any artistic updates. Idk how many of you were enjoying my different art style I was working with. It was kind of noticeably different then what I was doing before. But I really enjoyed that style and am trying to fuse both styles to give you guys something enjoyabe. As for updates on projects or anything. Got some things i'm working on right now. Miiiiiiiiight be giving hentai a serious shot, i'm not exactly sure yet on that. Of course still drawing monsters and stuff. And that band I drew some fan art for, me and them are supposed to meet up soon at one of their shows to discuss a possible job. So that'll be cool. But umm, yaw. Main thing I wanted to give everyone an update on was the fact some of my stuff i'm prolly gonna delete to make room for newer (hopefully better) stuff. So yaw.... How're you guys and gals?

Bit of an update

2015-09-02 20:54:42 by SMOKER9

Another update from yours truly. First of all i'd like to apologize for some of my not-so-great recent drawings. When I got scouted I was doing some pretty awesome drawings with my art pens, but now that I've run out of those, and don't have the means to get anymore for a bit, I'm stuck to regular sharpie pens, which kind of sucks. But I make do with what I got. I normally post all my doodles and stuff to my deviantart, and post all my artwork I put hard effort into on here. So sorry for the sharpie drawn stuff. I'll prolly hold off on uploading anymore sharpie drawings onto here since they're more or less doodles, unless you guys would like to see more. As for stuff I do actually want to upload onto here, I recently got back into drawing comics again, and would liket to start uploading some of my short ones onto newgrounds. My short ones are usually random, and are either just violent and action packed, comedic, or at times pervy. So expect to see some comics from me at the least, lol. So, that's my update right now, and an explanation as to why my artwork looks different then what it used to. Still, a true artist should be able to work with what they have I think. But soon, hopefully, i'll be able to pick up more art pens. So yep. How have you guys been?


Unemployment makes me a dull boy

2015-08-06 06:34:28 by SMOKER9

Gruhhh, so I guess I should maybe write news updates on what I'm up to here and there huh? Well currently I'm still unemployed. I have a pretty decent job lined up that pays well, but I have to wait until next summer to start. Not many jobs around my small town, so it's hard to find work. WHICH IS WHERE YOU COME IN!! IIIFFFFF YOU WANT!! My friends have been encouraging me for a while now since I graduated to start drawing pretty much draw hot girls and sell em as prints or something. I never really paid too much attention to the suggestion, but I'd be lying if I said that I don't want to do it now. I'm still looking into how exactly to go about selling my artwork, both originals and prints (if you have any tips please message me I am all ears), but once I do figure it all out, and if any of you like my stuff enough that you'd possibly buy some comissions or prints, I'll make another update telling that I'm good to go for artistic business, lol.

As for my art.. IIIII currently am stuck to using sharpie pens and ball point pens. I ran out of my fancy art pens a couple weaks ago, and don't have the money or gas to go in and get some new ones. I still draw stuff in my sketchbook, but since they're mostly just doodles I upload them exclusively to my deviantart instead of my newgrounds. If you want to see my ever-evolving sketchbook, check out my deviantart: http://d34dasdust.deviantart.com/ That's pretty much where all my sketches will be going.

One more artistic update I guess. Expect to see some comics on my newgrounds soon. I want to start drawing webcomics again, and have one in mine that's pretty short and comedic. I don't want to give too much away, but you guys can sort of be my ultimate feedback on if I should do more webcomics after I upload some here. Remember, your feedback is very important to me. Without it I won't really know what to improve on and what you guys like to see. 

So yaw, to sum it all up, going to try drawing comissions and prints for some extra cash. Prints will consist of hot video game/anime/comic book girls, but will also include some of my signature bada$$ characters if you guys would like that in the shop as well. Once the shop is up I'll be able to start taking comissions as well. And like I said, expect comic soon. Like prolly this week hopefully. So yaw. That's my update. How are you guys doing?


Podcast?

2015-06-30 20:24:58 by SMOKER9

So yaw, been spending most this weak drawing. Mostly really gotta practice on drawing backgrounds. But I also have been working on a couple comissions I got, and my job as an artist for my buddy's heavy metal band. It's not really an official job, but it's the only one I have at the moment, so I take pride in it. But also, my other buddy just got some podcast equipment, and wants to start up a podcast with me and him. Never actually have done a podcast, and really never thought I'd be doing one in my life, but it seems like something kinda fun to try out. Me and him are pretty funny when we're together, mostly because our sense of humor is pretty demented. We want to just talk about stuff we're fans of, like horror, music, video games, anime, and comics. I don't exactly know when we're going to start, hopefully soon. If our first podcast is good enough I might put up a link to it on here if anyone wants to hear my voice, lol. (I sound like Shaggy with a really deep voice according to my friends, lol). 

I'm also trying to work on some comics with my buddies. One is a comedy comic about demons trying to live a normal life in an insane world. Kinda basically Adventure Time, but more demonic and heavy metal, with more raunchy humor. And the other is a more serious comic about genetically altered soldiers who hunt supernatural and genetic monsters. So yaw, that's my update. Hoping to get some awesome stuff drawn up and uploaded to the Art Portal for you guys this weak. How's your guy's weak goin' btw?

So yaw, been reading up on the newground rules and stuff. Mostly the rules on scouting and the art portal (thank you btw to my Scout for scouting me, I appreciate that! And thank you to all my newfound fans who apparently think my artwork is good, lol). But anyways, there's a rule that's kinda buggin me and it's the rule about how if someone thinks my artwork is "bad", then i can get un-scouted or whatever. You know I'm ok with that actually, someone doesn't think I'm good at drawing I really don't give a flying f*ck, but I also learned that my scout can also get in trouble on my behalf too and I think that's kinda messed up. So just to save myself and my scout from any problems I'm just gonna go ahead and stop submitting to the art portal. If people wanna look at my stuff and say "wow this guy draws as if he was bludgeoned over the head with a lead pipe", then that's alright, y'know. Half those guys can't really draw shit, so I know they gotta take their agressions out on something. But I don't wanna get my scout in trouble, and I'd rather just not be involved in any of that stuff. So point is, if you like my art, I'll keep drawing. As for submitting to the Art Portal, probably not gonna do that anymore, lol. So yaw. That's my update. Hope you all are doing well!
