Hey guys!
I realized the other day that I've been ignoring this account, and it's basically because I'm no longer active on the site!
If you want to follow my updates, you can do so via my twitter account: twitter.com/beavs
or my tumblr account: alexneonakis.tumblr.com
and on my facebook account: www.facebook.com/pages/Alexand…

sorry for the inconvenience, I loved DA while I was on here, but have since found it a bit more difficult to maintain so many social media sites.

Okay, so there's been some hiatus and snags, but I'm getting closer to finishing. There are a few people in this list who i can't seem to locate. If it's you, make sure you message me please! Rockethub is an incredible site, but its in beta, and as of now, doesn't seem to give me a way to email the fuelers!

These are the people I'm trying to find:
John Reyes, Haylee Senita and Jeff Dorman

There are still 8 days left to contribute if you want a doodle: www.rockethub.com/projects/223…

Hey all!
Just wanted to thank everyone who's contributed to my project so far again. I really appreciate it, and I'm so close to my final goal!

Also, I have a friend coming to stay with me for the weekend starting tomorrow, so there'll be a lull in doodles till Monday.
So those of you who are waiting, I thank you so much for your patience!
I didn't realize I'd get so much interest!
So many doodles!

Hey all, so I'm going to keep this journal updated to show where the progress is on the doodles, and if you have me here on DA, you can see where you stand in the list.
The list is in order of contribution, Dan Catchpole being the first to contribute to the project! <3
Some people got skipped because I hadn't heard from them on what they wanted yet. Question marks mean I still haven't heard from them for what they want.

I love all of these people, and these doodles are so fun! You guys all have the best ideas for doodles hahaha

Again, if you want to get a doodle, you can check out the project here: www.rockethub.com/projects/223… I'm at a whopping 73% of my goal! If you do contribute please either email me, note me here on deviantart, or post in comments what you want for your doodle! You can also add me on facebook:alexandria neonakis. Actually, I invite everyone to add me on facebook, I love facebook friends!

Hey all! So you know that project I've been picking at for months now? The Hali to Cali one? Well it's sort of evolved. I'm planning on doing a whole book out of it, but I need funding in order to keep living!

So I decided to set the project up on rockethub.com.

Rockethub is basically a crowd funding site like kickstarter (but Canadians are welcome to join too)

Basically, if you pledge a bit of money to my project, I give you stuff! There are various reward levels (they're all listed on the site) but the first level is 5$ for a personalized doodle! 5$ is pretty cheap for a drawing, it can be whatever you want... a character you have, a wow character, whatever... just be warned that it's going to be SIMPLE so... it's not going to show all of your top tier gear perfectly rendered in beautiful realistic detail. It'll be a simple doodle! but it'll be fun, and you'll also get my love forever.

There are other levels too for people willing to pledge a bit higher.
Please please go check it out!

And all my love to you!

You can buy shark stickers from my sharks need <3 too drawing and little baby penguin with his ice cream stickers and buttons

the stickers are all 6.00$ for packs of the big ones
and i think the button is like 3.00$ or something

If there's anything on here that people think they'd be interested in seeing on a product, tell me! I don't really know what sells, I like stickers and buttons so I made stickers and buttons haha.

A friend of mine asked if I could show him some tricks in illustrator
So I'm livestreaming me doing a demo. I've got a project that I'm working on in illustrator, I'm going to ink, colour and add all the details all in illustrator. If you have questions, you can ask them and I'll answer and show you some tricks :)
Sorry I didn't give advanced notice, but these things record so if you find it too late, you can just watch the recording and ask me any unanswered questions here in this journal post.

Note me for more details

Just wanted you guys to know that I don't really post sketch stuff on here anymore, I'm trying to keep my deviantart as sort of a timeline of all of the work i've done over the years, so I don't want it cluttered with process work and sketches
you can see that at my blog

alexneonakis.blogspot.com

i actually post the finished polished work there too, so if you prefer to follow blogs, check that out
i personally prefer to follow people on deviantart because if they update regularly, you can still find their stuff pretty easily without sifting through pages and pages of updates
but hey, that's just me!

also, happy canadian thanksgiving!

Hey lads and ladies of DA!
So I am currently in the early parts of my cross-USA driving trip, final destination being Los Angeles.
I am going to be living there for three months, doing a workshop and attending the animation conference down there to do a bit of networking

I was wondering if anyone has good suggestions for additional workshops I could look into running at these times, life drawing sessions, networking opportunities... anything you think would be worth my time while I'm there!
I'm going with the goal of working my ass off, so gonna cram as much experience in as I possibly can.

Also if you live in the LA area and want to meet up and hang out sometime in the next few months, that'd also be cool
  • Mood: Happy
So I'll be at the illustration academy in kansas city, missouri starting May 30th
anyone on here going to be there?
or if you live in that area, drop me a line cause i won't really know anyone :(

My sister is trying to win a contest to get to Africa and help kids.
she's a great person, and she really wants this, it'd mean a lot to her (and me) if you'd take a few minutes and vote for her here:

www.redrosetea.ca/reachoutwith…

you have to search her name, it's Tia Price
and then you basically, click to vote, and confirm through an email
easy peasy!
and i will love you :)

Is Bigby!
It's from the graphic novel, Fables. It stands for "big bad"
hopefully he'll be big
but... not bad, i could do without that.
cesar millan is helping with that aspect of things though! (not personally... that'd be sweet though)

Oh man, thanks so much guys for 100,000 visits to my DA page :D
The constant support and love I get from this website really means a lot to me, I really appreciate every comment and +fav (though I don't respond to all of them, I look through and read each one)

I learned most of what I know about drawing and illustration from the internet, and places like Deviantart always pushed me to keep going, so thanks again it really means so much :)

upgraded to medium size intuos 4 from a small intuos 3
if it had lips, i would kiss it straight on them

the upgrade is very noticeable
a lot more pressure sensitivity (double!) a lot more tilt
and it comes with a bunch of little extra nibs that produce different feels
one is like an ink nib, one like a marker, one like flowy paint.

plus the side buttons now come with LCD labels so you can see what your custom buttons actually do and not forget about them like i did with past tablets.

basically, if you have the extra flow, it's worth every penny.
