What's up? :D I'm Ez! :wave:

I live in sunny South Africa where I spend most of my time indoors, except when I'm leisurely walking around doing errands, strategically plotting my every route to stay in the shade. B-)

In my free time, I work on my illustrated novel project, The Valiard Mansion. If you want to learn more about that, you can pop by my Gallery or visit:

If you wanna ask me anything, just drop me a Comment or a Note. :meow:

Hope you enjoy my Gallery! :hug: :heart:

Hey, guys! :wave:

So, my good friend, Scott has started a Conceptual Design school, and besides giving real-life lectures, he also has some online courses. He's running a promotion for a limited time where you can download his "Art Fundamentals: Drawing and Painting Essentials" course for cheap.

You guys can read more about it here:
Get a $299 Art Course for Just $49!Hey guys!
The DAS: School of Art and Design Fundamentals Course is On Sale until Tuesday! 
Get "Art Fundamentals: Drawing and Painting Essentials" for just $49, a massive saving of 75% off it's usual price of $199. You can use this link to redeem the discount, and feel free to share it with you friends and family! (COUPONS ARE LIMITED).
Click here to redeem the code, or send the link below to your friends and family!
Alternatively, you can just send them a link to the course and they can enter the code: DASWEETEST501

I haven't checked out the course myself, but I can vouch that Scott's a good teacher. He's always spouting terms at me that I've never heard of before. :giggle: He knows all his art books back to front, and you can ask him anything about Glen Keane. It's nuts! :XD:

You guys can judge for yourselves, though. The course has a trailer up and you can look at his gallery. :meow: Here's his dA: :iconart-of-scott:

And that's all I got for now, folks. :D I'm working hard to get my pencil drawing up to scratch so I can animate the first scene of the Valiard trailer. It's gonna have Theodore in it. OH YEEEAAAAH! :la:

Valiard Valentine\'s Goodies set for release tomorrow! How should I go about it? 

68 deviants said Release the new Chapter 10 first, then the other stuff.
35 deviants said Leave the Chapter 10 release for last. First show us the goodies!
6 deviants said I don't care! I'm goin' on a hot date awww yiss! B-)

So, I'm not a person who likes commenting, but I just want you to know that I read all of Viliard in a day and have been officially enamored! The characters of Ruth and Gangfield in particular are especially endearing and rich. I fell in love with Gangfie instantly!
As to your concerns about feeling like you should "stick to art" rather than try writing (expressed in chapter 7?), nothing could be further from the truth. Writing being my main trade, reading your work has been especially invigorating and such a learning experience. As an artist, you may see story more as frame by frame, characterized by dialogue and a character's expression and movement. I found these were prominent pieces in your writing and it makes complete sense! What is better is that the way you translate those frames into words is absolutely invigorating! You use the right words and images, don't overdo description (which can be a HUGE pitfall in writers), and your dialogue is FLAWLESS.
*exhale* Put plainly, I have been studying your writing and I hope one day for my readers to see pictures as vivid as you evoke. Thank you for writing. (And of course, I could go off on your ART for days, but we won't do that.)
