 Hey y'all and alls!

I am in need of your talented little brains and hands. Have a guest strip you'd like to do for GGaR? Please follow the guidelines: 

- The usual format used is similar to mine: 3-5 panels. But you don't have to follow it! It can be eight panels, it can be comic strip form, it can be comic page form, heck, it can be a single panel telling a story! You're pretty free when it comes to formats. I'll only ask you to resize it to 1100 px wide so it fits on the page. (for guest strips example, you can check out the "Guest Strips Weeks" in the Archives and see for yourself!)

- The style: WHATEVER YOU WANT.

To avoid: too much bad language, violence, or nudity/sex that turns into porn. I will not accept any discrimination or other tasteless themes.

Submit it! When you want to send it over, use this email address: gogetaroomie@gmail.com with "Guest Strip" as your title.

Deadline: 25th of April 2014

Questions? Ask 'em in the comments below! (Or via Twitter or Tumblr)

And most importantly: Have fun!! :)

Hey everyone! 

This is just a little journal to mostly say that I feel very much sorry for forfeiting :iconsanctum-oct:. It had a lot of potential, and I was so pumped for it, but I used the round extensions like crap, and here I am having to abandon it for other work. 

I'll use this as a lesson to never leave tournament rounds for "later". You know how it is, and I should've seen it coming. 

.... that said. I really want to do other OCTs so... if you have any recommendations.. (I feel horrible, kind of when your bunny dies and you get another one the day after without mourning the last one) But I think I do need OCTs in my life so, bring the suggestions if you have any!

EDIT: I found it. :iconhousemates-oct: I found it and I'm keeping it. Auditions end on the 21st of December PLEASE JOIN ME I would love to battle youuuu<3

Let's see what else. Oh, my deviantart premium membership died... I'd ask for a new one (shamelessly so), but I don't really mind it. I thought dA would be difficult to surf without a premium membership but it's actually not that bad at all. Don't tell dA, but for some reason the ads don't show up on my page, so I'm fine.

Okay, I think that's it. Of course, I'd just like to remind you how awesome you are for supporting/following/watching me and dropping lovely little comments (when you feel like it) and just being generally fab. 
Yes you are.

Going back to OCTs

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 4, 2013, 9:59 AM


I have a lot to do, but one can always free up time for sudden impulses. Impulses like "OMG I WANT TO JOIN AN OCT JUST LIKE OLD TIMES IT WAS SO FUN"

OCTs, or Original Character Tournaments, are a splendid concept, known mostly here on dA. Look up the definition here if you have no idea what I'm babbling on about, it explains  it all.

In any case, I'm all suddenly suber excited and found a sweet lookin' OCT to join up, if you wanna get in there too and have a chance to duel me, it's called :iconsanctum-oct:, and I'd love getting to know your characters :) (AND EAT THEM UP)

A little shout-out for other OCTs I was told about:
 :iconthegamesoct: :iconremakeclinic: :icontheatreroyale:
And of course :iconocbzcomics: which I've been part of
And :iconoctfollowers: to follow all tournaments

*waves to my OCT followers, I know you're out there!*

'Can I use your art for...?'

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 7, 2013, 2:42 PM


Sure! As long as you put the credit where it is due. 

What I don't mind: Go ahead and use my artwork for a desktop background, for your tumblr background, heck facebook sharing, website header... AS LONG AS it's clear who's behind the art (aka: moi)
For example: my most famous strip here would be the "I'm a lesbian" comic, which has recently made other appearances on more or less known websites. I'm okay with that. I'm less okay with the fact that they did not give credits anywhere. 
Still, glad it still makes people laugh.

What I do mind: Apart from the obvious "take my artwork, put it in your gallery and say it's your own" theft, I'm not keen on tracing, copying, or coloring my art. Of course, you CAN do these things if you really want to, as practice, but I'd rather you not upload it to your gallery. I'm still squimish about that. Even if you do credit me.
I won't call off on you if you do it, I'm just saying that I'm not keen on it.

As for translating my comics in another language. Go ahead and be my guest, but upload the comics on another, more suitable website. I've always felt like dA was your personal gallery, with your own creations, not others'.

There you are! Now you know :)
Thanks for following, for supporting, for faving and all, 
you guys are wonderful.

Roomie Kickstarter

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 8, 2013, 11:24 AM


That's right! For those who didn't see it yet, we've recently launched a Go Get a Roomie Kickstarter campaign in order to publish it's very first book!

It's been going amazing so far, reaching the 20k goal in little less than 24h. Like I said, amazing.

But there's still 29 days left for those of you who still wish to donate and perhaps raise the campaign enough to reach other goals with extra lovely gifts!

Here's the link~

Lots of love everyone<333

List of stuff to dooo

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 1, 2012, 1:42 PM


In which priorities come first:

1.) Go Get a Roomie updates
2.) Finish the  Kigo comic (AMIRIGHT)
3.) Horny For You updates
4.) Commissions (which are indefinitely closed)

And of course fanarts which doesn't fit any order because I can't control those things (they come on an impulse).

After everything's caught up on, it'll be all about publishing a Roomie book (WHOO!), doing a little porn comic and starting to seriously think about a hush-hush secret project idea of mine.

Just so everyone's clear on my priorities, especially me!

In other news, there is now a GGaR Forum on the Pixie Trix website: www.pixietrixcomix.com/forum/v…

Lots of love to everyone of you!! :love:

Just a little reminder that one week remains before the deadline for anyone who might be interested in making a Guest Strip for my little webcomic.

For more information click here!

Other than that, if you're curious for some news: It's now been almost exactly three weeks since I've moved into Brussels (Belgium), and it's amazing waking up, feeling at home, loving life and all that good stuff, and knowing it's all because I'm now making a living off Go Get a Roomie. It's... yeah, it's definitely amazing :)

Thank you so much for your support everyone! Love of love of course :heart: !!

Art theft and retracing art

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 22, 2012, 3:01 PM


Hey guys! How are you all? :)
This... is not my usual life-is-perfect journal entry. It's about Art theft, and what is considered as disrespectful if you ever copy/retrace original artworks. To make things as clear as possible:

-you DO NOT submit another artist's artwork in your own dA gallery. Your gallery is for YOUR stuff, your favorites is for the artworks you have specially liked while browsing dA. Submitting someone else's art and saying it's your own, is considered as theft.
Clear? Should be for most, but you never know. Next:

-you DO NOT retrace, copy, color, or edit another artist's artwork without giving them the proper credits. You DO NOT submit this edited artwork and say it's "your own original artwork" without ANY indications to which artwork you're editing/copying from. It WILL NOT help you in any way as an artist to receive compliments about an artwork because the viewers think it's all you. You HAVE to accept your own flaws and need of an original artwork to copy/edit from to IMPROVE as an artist, and as a person.

It is also the LEAST OF RESPECT you owe to the artists you're so "inspired" by.

Why am I bringing this up now? Because I have been reported that a certain jefterleite is retracing many artworks from the well-known AdamHughes and proudly saying that it is "his own original artwork". No credits. Nothing.
I usually don't tell on someone and shout their dA names, but this dude has unfortunately irritated me by not only denying his lack of credits, but also deleting his latest deviation (jefterleite.deviantart.com/art… I had commented on with the link to Adam's original artwork (farm4.static.flickr.com/3484/3…, and hiding my comment on the frontpage and blocking me from replying to him. Evidently proving that he is guilty.

This is what I left on his frontpage:
"Your artwork is NOT original, as it is retraced from Adam Hughes' artworks. I am strongly against your submissions saying it is "your" artwork without giving ANY credit whatsoever to ~AdamHughes. Not to mention the fact that you're selling them.
Please give the credits where they are due. Giving credits is giving respect to the original artist behind all these. And it is fundamental for you to do so as an artist yourself.
For example, this fellow here has colored Adam's original artwork: adamhughes.deviantart.com/art/… And the colored version: northchavis.deviantart.com/art…
Notice how the artist GAVE ALL THE PROPER CREDITS in the artist's comment. You should follow this example and stop implying to others that these are all your original ideas.
I hope you understand."

This is his answer, before blocking me:
"I have some gear from adam but they are with credit! most of my artwork are original, prove me sending me links to my work that are not credits are not mine!"

Hmm, not only do I not have the time to go through your retraced gallery and find the original artworks to all of them, but I couldn't be able to anyway because you have blocked me from commenting and/or noting you on anything. And you deleted your latest deviation with my comment that included the link to the original artwork. Interesting.

Important note: This is NOT an encouragement to send hate notes or insults. This is to tell this guy, and any others who deny copying/stealing other's artworks, that what they are doing is wrong.  Be respectful, okay? They just wanna draw like the big boyz and they don't realize how disrespectful and immature it is.

Peace out :peace:

ps: This guy should thank me. Look at all the pageviews I'm giving him! ;)

Wittle news for the curiouses

Journal Entry: Mon May 21, 2012, 5:15 PM


I do realize it's not a word. But then "curiouser and curiouser" isn't either :>

What's happening:

In July I am moving to Brussels (Belgium) with some great friends of mine. This couldn't have been possible without your help. The fundraiser was a success, and starting July I will be able to live off Roomie. Without the readers I have now and the generous donators, this couldn't have happened.

Thank you.

This also means that there will be a GGaR update EVERY FRIGGIN' DAY for roughly about a month, since you've "bought" 15 extra strips I have to somehow fit in the schedule!
Which leads to the commissions, the Kigo comic AND the webcomic on Filthy Figments. I will get through those as well some-bloody-how, but you have to understand that Roomie will always be my priority, as it's with the hippie's adventures that I'll be able to live in Belgium and not starve there.

In other news: new name here on deviantArt, as you probably noticed! Some asked why, some asked how. I'm afraid only premium members can change their username. As to why, "nana-51" was a name I created back in high school where my nickname was "Nana" in my little circle of friends. It wasn't meant for it to stick for so long, and I've been wanting to change the username ever since.
"Batlesbo" is my name on Tumblr, so some of you aren't that confused :) and yes, it's "bat" space "lesbo". Not "battles bo" or "bro" or whatever your mind tricked you into believing. I get a lot of that!

I think that's it... then again it's quite the big news. I still can't believe how popular my webcomic's becoming, and I'm overwhelmed and even have to take a break at times from all of this so I don't lose my mind =D

Lastly: omg guys this playlist is orgasmic go listen to it right now

Lots of love! ;)

GoGetaRoomie Fundraiser!

Journal Entry: Sat May 12, 2012, 10:54 AM


Hey guys! Jojo (the comic manager&wizard) and I are doing this little fundraiser to help us get a better start with the whole comics biz. It also encourages me to (most probably certainly) draw this comic full-time, meaning 5 updates a week, on week days.

It's simple, donate whatever amount you wish to, and once we reach 100$, it's an extra Roomie update in the week. We're doing great so far, but if you want to add your own Roomie love, click here for more info!

Thank you<3

It's opened, folks! As of right now, there are ten prints available in great paper quality. Of course, as time goes and art explodes, there will be more and more goodies available in there :)

>Chloe's Art Store<

And in other news: THANK YOU FOR THE VOTES! The ComixCon May Mayhem NSFW Tournament has started its rounds and Roomie's still jumping over rainbows.
If you still want to give it a go and vote for your favorite NSFW webcomic, it's this way!

Lots of love!! :love:

Comic voting and whatnot yay!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 28, 2012, 6:36 PM


I should probably get some promotion going here on dA as well, if it's not too much of a bother. There's this comic tournament. Well, specifically,  the "Mix May Mayhem 2012 NSFW Webcomics Tournament".

Aaaaand I don't know how it came to be but as far as I know, Go Get a Roomie is... well let's just say it's going fairly well. And a bit more than fairly.
But I'll still play the game and give you the link to vote for my webcomic ONLY if you think it deserves it. There's plenty of other wonderful comics in there that you might rather vote for, by all means! (Like Ma3, Curvy or Oglaf!)

Vote on the Mix May Mayhem 2012 NSFW Webcomics Tournament

Lastly, a huge, huge, still-too-amazed-at-the-love-you-give-me thank you to all of my readers, commenters, followers AND ALL THAT HAPPY JAZZ.
God you guys are spoiling me.

Suggest a Daily Deviation

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 26, 2012, 8:29 AM


So I've been meaning to write an entry on DDs for quite a while now. And now seems like a good time!

I've noticed, whether or not it's just me, that I was growing somewhat disappointed at what the Daily Deviations sometimes give us. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great way to show off someone's work that might be undervalued. But only if they deserve it!
Sometimes I go check a DD and find that, yeah, there might be nice textures in the drawing but holy hell, does the anatomy need practice!

Again, it's not to critisize anyone's work, but rather knowing that there are wayyyy more skilled artists who deserve the attention. I guess I'm picky! But isn't what DDs are for? Picking the best out of many?

SOOO, cutting to the chase, I'm gonna tell YOU how to suggest a DD. Because I think the problem might also be that there are very few people who actually know how to suggest an artwork as a Daily Deviation.

It's really simple, all you have to do is NOTE the proper deviant that takes care of a particular category. For example:

:bulletwhite: All Galleries - Moonbeam13
:bulletwhite: Anime/Manga - Nyiana-sama, MzzAzn & kit-y
:bulletwhite: Comics & Cartoons - dust-bite
:bulletwhite: Digital Art - MalKnox & alicexz
:bulletwhite: Fan Art - alexandrasalas
:bulletwhite: Traditional Art - Mollinda, SRaffa, oilsoaked & deshrubber

For the entire list click here!
Write them a note with preferably the thumbnail of your chosen deviation, and tell 'em why you like it so much! And as it is written in the FAQ, only suggest a deviation to ONE person.

DISCLAIMER: This is absolutely NOT a wink-nudge to say "Oh hey! hey pick MY art now!!" I don't know if any of my art deserves a DD, and I don't care much. But I know quite a few of my arsty friends who DO deserve it, and I bet you do too. So you know what to do if you feel like helping out a Deviant friend  :)
