For more than 8 years I've been a user on Deviantart, I've met great fellow artists , seen amazing and inspiring works, took part on many cool groups and contests, improved my craft and progressed in my career. 8 years is a long time, Deviantart has been around longer, but we all know that from that time until today the site isn't what it used to be anymore. Lots of fellow artists have left, lots of fans have left, I stayed because I think I owed it to the people that followed my work here over the years and to whom I am forever grateful. But, it is a fact that this site isn't a good place for an artist anymore, to me at least. With the growth of other social sites like Facebook,Instagram, Pixiv,Tumblr, etc. the appeal of deviantart isn't what it used to be. And the site overall has worsen the experience for the users.
   Today I got a note to inform me that one of my deviations had been removed on Copyright infringement concerns. An illustration based on Dragonball Online, but mind you the characters weren't actually characters from the game but rather my own designs based on the game style. Now, I'm guessing most of people reading this are aware that I am a great DB fan, a life long fan. And this made me really thinK: it has come down to this? Deviantart is chasing after fanart now? Fanart done and shared only as a love letter to a story and characters I love, and bare in mind that I never sold anything regarding that image, I made zero dollars. So that strikes me as total dick move. And what puzzles me the most is the underlying argument: will deviantart chase around every fanart piece on their site? Because even if it only was just DB fanart that would be a pretty sizeable amount of images I suspect. If indeed it has come to deviantart taking down fanart they are pretty much shooting themselves on the foot. The site will be dead in a matter of months.
  Also, it wasn't the first time something similar happened to me here: I got another deviation deleted some time ago on also rather asinine claims. And all this has worn me down, I had little reason to continue to use deviantart and they seem to increase their efforts towards making this site more and more hostile and dry for it's users. So I am sorry to announce that I won't be updating this no more. I am tempted to just close the account altoghether, but I would like to keep stuff like my favourites gallery. But I am letting you guys know that it's very likely I won't be adding more to the gallery , nor answering comments or notes because I won't be around, so if you'd like to keep in touch just like my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/MatiasSotoLop… or my Tumblr: matiassotolopez.tumblr.com/ . I'll probably will add another like Instagram pretty soon. Probably a personal site . But in any shape or form , I'll still be lurking around the internet so it shouldn't be that hard to find me.

Thank you all you people for sharing your thoughts and kindness and support and friendship all these years here, but it's time to abandon ship. Always it get a little sad and also a little exciting at the same time when bold decisions are made. Farewell Deviantart.

Hello! I just wanted to drop by for a quick update:
It's not that I've forgotten about you guys, the reason I've been posting sparsely because I'm working on comics doing the complete art included coloring and even some writing, so it takes my full attention; and also some personal matters regarding life stuff that keeps me away from work, but all in all everything is going well and definitely better than last year. Though I can't show anything of that comic work just yet but I still have some work done for fun on the side, just have to polish it a bit in order for me to share it with you, friends.

BTW thanks for all the new watchers! Also I must say thanks for all the groups that have been requesting works from my gallery, I don't know exactly how or why but the number of requests have really have risen. So thanks to all of you guys, I'm afraid I can't thank each individually in each gallery but I'm really flattered :thanks:

I'm thinking of doing a new T-shirt design based on an old school game, what do you guys think, should I do it as pixel art or just as a regular illustration?

BTW if you guys want to check out my previous designs for shirts, posters and mugs go to my Society6 store:

Are you interested on getting other illustrations for me for other stuff like Phone cases and whatnot ? Let me know your thoughts on the comments!

THIS ONE: th05.deviantart.net/fs28/PRE/f…
Because (somebody reported it) according to DA policies it's somehow sexual and they are underage... And it's beside the point that it's mine (really, I'm not that attached to something I made when I was 17, it's very flawed and the general execution not very good, though I still like the idea behind it) but I find it a bit odd about art censorship in general and in particular about totally innocent (unexposed) nudity... I mean would it be a problem if it were querubes for example? I mean for example this painting by Rafael Sanzio 1.bp.blogspot.com/-zn934-iTuAM… , "Madonna del cardellino" said in those terms feature frontal nudity of what it seems to be a infant boy(I belive it's actually Jesus), but it's in totally innocent context. So what I try to raise here is the question that maybe it isn't about the nudity in itself that is inherently sexual but rather the context, and I think as a species we ought to be over that by this age. Just food for thought...

This stip from the guys at "Our Valued Customers" ourvaluedcustomers.blogspot.co… it perfectlly illustrates my point on this journal:
3.bp.blogspot.com/-1vd16Sq5gM8…

Seriously, It's not my fault if your parents/your legal guardians didn't taught you that stealing is bad, and I'm must clear that I get no joy of going around scolding kids for stealing -mainly what I did just as fanart(it seems to happen a lot with my dragonball stuff) , adding clumsy lines on Paint or tracing it over in vectors and call that as "derivative work" that took mine "as inspiration". Sorry, but that's flat out theft. So stop, just stop, for your own dignity. It's not something good to sow in your lives, because what today is just a kid's naughtiness it can get to be a really lousy habit later in your life.
There're some kids that just re-post my stuff and think it ok too, that I should be even thankful for the publicity. But seriously, do you really think that? Of what use it's if you just have the same thing I have in my gallery without adding anything significative to it? How that helps anybody but you? And I must add I'm pretty open with the use of my stuff most of the times, for example I never have any problem with people that translates my stuff to different languages I don't know, but that's an entirely different thing than just plain re-posts.

Examine yourselves and desist of doing that, I can bet you will feel better. In the end lies only destroy ourselves:

"Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love."

DRAW EVERY DAY!! by MatiasSoto

ENGLISH:

Hello! How are you guys doing?
I just wanted to take some time to thank you all, for all the nice comments and favs.


-COMMISSIONS!
**************
I decided to up 5 spots for commissions, most certainly the last batch for this year.
Anybody interested just note me.

- KIRIBAN
*************

Since the pageviews are closing(sometime, I estimate it will take some time still- which is for the best, that way people can't complain there wasn't time and that by doing it I'm ushering oportunists instead of my faithful watchers :) ) on to the 100.000 pageviews I'm doing another Kiriban for it, but in this case I wanted to make it special: instead of the pencil sketch, the winner of this 100.000 pv will get a colored commission for free ! :)
Like last time whoever gets a snapshot of the main page with the 100.000 pageviews number and sends me a note gets a free color illustration, of any character(one) of his/her choice(no OC),and I case I don't know the character (good)ref. should be provided for the  character(that means no redesign of anytype either for known characters or OC) -and please keep it adult content free-.
In case more than one person sends me the screencapture the first note that I recieve gets the kiriban.
Good luck!

55.555 Kiriban goes to :iconmagnaxeon: Gran Ghost from Call of duty modern warfare 2 -pending-
50.000 Kiriban goes to :icondarkwarrior: that requested  Toph from the Last Airbender matiassoto.deviantart.com/art/…
Past Kiriban has been awarded to :iconragevx: who requested Hong Mei Ling fav.me/d3ftame
Previous KIRIBAN went to :iconcris-art: who requested Teddy Altman a.k.a. Hulkling fav.me/d37hz2j
and the one before to :icondavidserret: who requested Felicia Hardy a.k.a. The Black Cat fav.me/d2wtant

ESPAÑOL:

Hola, como estan todos?
Sólo quería tomarme un momento para saludarlos y agradecer por todos los amables comentarios y los favs !

Como se aproxima (bueno aun falta mucho, pero mejor porque así nadie se queja que no avisé con tiempo y que eso solo beneficia a los oportunistas en vez de mis leales watchers :) ) un numero redondo en las pageviews de mi galería 100.000(me cuesta creerlo la verdad) queria aprovechar para hacer un Kiriban, pero para que sea especial esta vez en vez del boceto a lápiz que regalé el ganador se ganará un dibujo a color! :)

Como la ultima vez, quien sea que saque una captura de pantalla con el numero de 100.000 pageviews y me manda un note se gana un dibujo a color, del personaje que quiera(solo uno y no OC), y en caso de que no lo conozca deberá darme (buena)referencia para el personaje(y eso significa q no haré ningún tipo de re-diseño tanto para personajes ajenos o originales)- y por favor q sea algo apto para todo publico-.En caso que me lleguen mas sera la primer note q llegue para quien irá la Kiriban.
Buena suerte!

Also I must say thanks for all the groups that have been requesting works from my gallery, I don't know exactly how or why but the number of requests have really have risen. So thanks to all of you guys, I'm afraid I can't thank each individually in each gallery but I'm really flattered :thanks:

This is straight from the Journal from inker extraordinaire  :iconjoeweems5:

------------------------------------------------------------
Why don't I allow downloads?


by ~JoeWeems5

Some have asked me why I no longer allow down loads of my Art posted here on Deviant anymore?
Quite a few aspiring colorists really enjoyed my high res files that I posted.
Unfortunately it's because of folks like yo111tin on Ebay that have made me decide it is no longer smart for me to allow down loads of my work.
This guy likes to grab pieces off of DA and then print them up from home and sell these illegally for an arm and a leg.
Doesn't even credit the Inkers of said Illustrations.
Here's a link to two of his active auctions
www.ebay.com/itm/Marc-Silvestr…
www.ebay.com/itm/Michael-Turne…
You may notice plenty of other familiar images that He's selling from various Artists here on DA in his current auctions.
I have reported both and I encourage others to step forward and get this tool banned from Ebay.
In the meantime I must apologize to all those who genuinely used my down loads for practice colors as they will no longer be available.

-------------------------------------------------------------

The guy's just a big fat thief,
he steals from people like(sorry I can't remember all their DA accounts)
Jim Lee :iconjimlee00: www.ebay.com/itm/Jim-Lee-Justi…
Greg Capullo  www.ebay.com/itm/Greg-Capullo-…
Stanley Lau :iconartgerm:
J.Scott Campbell :iconj-scott-campbell: www.ebay.com/itm/J-Scott-Campb…
Leinil Yu :iconleinilyu:
Arthur Adams www.ebay.com/itm/Arthur-Adams-…
Todd McFarlane www.ebay.com/itm/Todd-McFarlan…
Andy Kubert www.ebay.com/itm/Andy-Kubert-B…
List just goes on, and on, and on... but just you to see this is no smaller crook.Besides stealing from artists, he's stealing from publishers for the work they commissioned the artists, so he is in big trouble I would say.
Sorry I too missed the inkers, but I know most too are on DA as well, I searched for said pages but I wouldn't want to mis-credit anyone, if you can share the info I'll correct it immediately.

PLEASE, REPORT THIS GUY ON EBAY AND SHARE THIS ON YOUR JOURNAL

WHAT THE HELL, DA?? :iconwthplz:

Seriously, a few days ago I noticed something wierd about the amount of Deviations on my front page, which it was about 20-something fewer than I thought had up, and now it's 502?
What's is going on? Did anyone had a similar problem? I'm not sure if the actual deviations were taken from my gallery or just some mix up with the counter, still... weird.

  • Playing: my mp4?
  • Eating: chewing gum actually
  • Drinking: Water
Ok, this is long overdue. Ever since I've joined DA I've been getting a lot of notes and comments which certain subjects that are brought up quite often.
Some are quite reasonable inquires, others a bit outlandish (for me at least) but I assure you that I got all of these at least twice so that's why I decided to put them up here.
I hope you don't take it badly but from now on, I'm not gonna answer any of the questions featured on this list, and refer you to this list.And this list will be updated as long as I keep getting repeated questions.

It's just about time saving really.
So off we go!


Question:
Can I color your work?

Answer:
Sure, no problem. I'm flatered actually, as long it isn't for profit or tracing, and the proper credit(that is crediting me as the lineart and linking back to my deviation or my gallery in the comment of your deviation) is given I don't mind at all.
Send me the link when you're done! It's always nice to see the results and I'll add your link to my deviation's comment.



Questions:
-Can you draw me XXXXXX? I can't pay you right now but I'll XXXXXX
-Do you take requests?
-I'm a bit low on money, so can I give you instead a llama ? Or if you want me to do some advertising for you?


Answer:
I'm sorry but I'm a professional illustrator/comic artist, that means that my work is my primary source of income.
Drawing is my job so in order to pay my expenses I must get paying gigs, that means I have a limited amount of time to devote to my work,and commissions are regularlly an extra, it's just as simple as that.
So unless I clearlly state it, every time I open commissions I do it for money, and any alternative won't cut it.
You have to understand that if I took your request it would be unfair to everyone.
At least that's how things are for the time being, so I hope you can understand it.

Every once in a while I do some free giveaways, like Kiribans, but that would properly announced before and it's clearly the exception not the rule.

Question :
-How much for a sketch?I'm interested in a commission but I would want you to do a prelim sketch to let me know if I want to commission you.

Answer:
I do not do any work without being payed before, anything. Not even a stick figure.
The reason? Some people used the opposite to scam artists(it happened me before) and since it's quite easy to do that on DA even after being banned I use this method now.
That is: I charge the full payment first.
But you can take for certain that I'm not out to scam clients either, my work ethic is my honor.
I've been around in DA for several years and all the commissions I did through DA contacts have always met with client satisfaction (at least I haven't gotten any note or comment of complain) and are posted somewhere in my gallery(unless the client specially requests otherwise.
And to be fair, I do reserve slots for people in the order of the notes arrival before any payments if there's any chance that I can't fulfill the commission in time to avoid any hussle.
When I'm sure I have time for delivering the commission I shall note the client so he/she can send the payment before I start the work.


Question:
-Are you open for commissions?

Answer:
Check the Journals and/or my signature. As I stated before, Commissions are just an extra so that's why I do them on limited slots so I can control the schedule better.
I rarely do commissions if the Journals/Signature says the opposite, but if the compensation is worth it I might do an exception.


Question:
-What materials do you use?

Answer:
* Mechanical pencils 2.0-0.5 -0.3 mm tip, and HB,H and 2H for regular penciling.
For the inking it's mostlly pens and markers, I know it's more professional to use brushes but I'm still a bit clumsy with it, I use brushes for some things that require more expressive strokes or some bolder black lines,spots,blobs and filling big black areas.The brands I've used and recommend are Pilot, Edding, Sharpie and Copics they all have hi quality inks and a wide variety of pen tips, you just have to choose over for what your objectives are, at that point is only trial and error my friends. There's also the Unipin brand of markers, that though neither the ink or the tips are the best(not that bad either, just average) the ink dry faster than most and the markers are really easy for standard use, so keep that in mind. But stay away from Stablio(unless they fixed them) I had very bad experiences many years ago, the ink rusts and it stain every paper it touches :/-


Question:
-How much time does an illustration or a  comic/manga page take you to do?

Answer:
It really varies a lot, depending on the details, layouts, panels,style,colors, etc. .
But the standard in the comic book industry is roughly a page per day-pencils only.


Question:
-When will you make more pages for the doujinshi "Dragonball Gaiden"?

Answer:
As I stated before, drawing is my profession, drawing comics to be more specific.That's what gets my salary.
Therefore, as much of a huge DB and Akira Toriyama fan I am, my work is my priority. Though I loved doing this dojinshi, it gets increasingly difficult to find time and energy to devote to it.
The conflict here is job(drawing) versus hobby (drawing)so it's gets complicated, since it uses the same tools (including my hand) so if use my free time the same way I work...it can be really exhausting. Because you must also remember that apart from drawing I've lot of other activities I have to do that are needed to be done and I cannot avoid them(you know, unless I want to go to jail in debts and loose any traces of health).


Question:
-How long is the DB dojinshi is going to be?

Answer:

-Originally I planned this fanmanga to be a few chapters long but that's no longer a possibility. When I started this it was just a practice, some fun pastime, and -I think- 3 years later I work as a comic artist and the time I have available for this type of thing is really very little.So sadly ending it is the only way...


*******************************
Version en español:
COMING SOON


Pregunta:
-Que materiales usas para trabajar?

Respuesta:

Para el lápiz, uso lapices mecánicos de varios grosores de punta de 2.0-0.5-03 milímetros. Los grafos(minas) son de tipo HB, H Y 2H.
Para el entintado uso muchos tipos de marcadores y pinceles con tinta china, he probado muchísimos tipos de marcadores con los años, de los q probé mejores son los Pilot (y por lo que mas quieras NO compren Stabilo, la tinta se herrumbra al poquito tiempo y te arruina todo) también Unipin, son baratos y rendidores aunque no tengan la mejor tinta(o el trazo XD) secan rápido (no TAN rápido tampoco, hay que esperar un poco para borrar el lápiz o te queda todo gris) y yo soy muy ansioso y me he agarrado demasiadas calenturas por hacer un manchón sin querer porque la tinta no había secado.También he usado los Sharpies, Edding y Copics y son todos altamente recomendables, todos tienen buena tinta solo es cuestion de que prueben y aprendan cual tipo de puntas son las mejores para sus objetivos, ahi en delante es todo muy personal, asi que no queda otra que ensayo y error.


Pregunta:
-¿ Cuando sale la próxima pagina del Doushinji de "Dragonball Gaiden" ?
COMING SOON


Pregunta:
-¿Que tan largo va  a ser el doshinji de DB?

Respuesta:
-Esto empezó siendo una practica mientras esperaba un guión (para combatir la inactividad digamos) pero como hubo gente que le cologó lo segui y lo seguí a pesar de que ya no tenía mas tiempo para algo como esto, asi q no me queda otra que darle un cierre a corto plazo.
