My New Year 2015 question to you: Why do you have a deviantART account? You use it daily because... 

119 deviants said I want to produce art because I like to entertain others. I'm competent on my ability and am pretty solid with my foundations.
88 deviants said I'm curious about the art of self-expression. I can draw as an amateur and I'm happy to stay that way.
72 deviants said I enjoy looking at other people's work and giving a shoutout. I can't draw for life so I'm here to be entertained.
8 deviants said I'm here as a professional, to promote my artwork, to share ideas and to teach.

:star: Dreamkeepers KICKSTARTER (Volume 4 is out!!)

I can't stress enough on how awesome this series is, David Lillie is an incredible story teller of this new generation of web-comics and had successfully campaigned a set of high quality self-published graphic novels since it's humble beginnings in 2005. I mean just look at how much they've raised in two days on their Kickstarter - it's an incredible result!

DK-Kickstart by darkspeeds

A huge congratulations to David, his wife Liz and their team of art assistants who have put in a ton of effort these past couple of years into the project and it's time they got what they deserved.

Do me a favour and buy the book, in fact, buy all FOUR volumes.

And if you're extra nice, spread the word to friends who dig great stories and love reading comics.

For daily updates you visit their official website and subscribe to their newsletter. You can also check out their work on their deviantART page :icondreamkeepers:

Okay time to hit the hay and get some sleep! But before that, some behind-the-scenes with my latest commission (:iconkafelnikov: being my client).

Reworking the above pose - a very nervous Hal who is high on adrenaline and confronting danger.

Hi, Darkspeeds! I'm a huge fan of your work, and I hope you don't mind to answer my question, but where do you study? What's the name of your university, I mean xD

Hey Elson, Remember me? It's me Cameron Dixon! You know, I did the voice of Big The Cat in Donniegirl12's SU "Spark of Life" Comic Dramas? I just wanted you to know that I DID IT! I've finally got the Blue Yeti Microphone today, and I'm gonna start using it right away. Just to let you know. Victory Dance Revamp

That's great news Cameron! You're gonna have a blast with the Blue Yeti mic, the difference can be felt from your very first recording. Go and have a ball mate!

Hey Elson!
I hope you don't mind but I was plannin' on using one of your works as an example of an assignment I'm working on for my Visual Arts course, I have to talk about why I like the work and some details about the artist etc.
I was planning on using this work…

Hi Bettina! 

You are more than welcome to use that illustration for your assignment. = ) I'm rather surprised that you've picked that piece out of the others that are available. I wish you all the best on your assignment and may it provide you further insight your studies in VisDev! Do let me know how it turned out! *thumbs up*

I really appreciate it thank you :)
Mostly because it uses pencils and we're basically studying the Elements of art so I feel it has a lot to be written about, plus your work really inspires me as I wanna be a comic book artist and animator XD
darkspeeds Featured By Owner May 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Your most welcome! 

And glad to hear it! I plan to continue to do what I can to inspire others. ;)
