Page 101 is the beginning of a new chapter, which, as the title implies, includes a tournament set in demon lands. And when you say tournament, you also say "goddamn it, I'm going to have to draw a lot of crowd aren't I??"
What I suggest we do, is you give me a link to one of your OCs (demon or not, I can give them horns if they don't have any yet!), and I'll draw them as part of the demon crowd watching the tournament in the webcomic (as the chapter goes)! How does that sound?
One original character per person, give me a reference pic down below in the comments, tell your friends about it if they want to send their own OCs, and think of it as your character having to live in a parallel world where they grow horns whether they want to or not! (because that's basically the canon story-line)
One last thing: depending on how many people play along, I'm not promising anything. If there are too many OCs and too little time, it's not because I didn't want to draw your OC (I love drawing ppl's OCs, trust me), it's just that I got deadlines.
Thanks for reading, and looking forward to seeing where this goes!

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: firstname.lastname@example.org with "Guest Strip" as your title.
- Deadline: 25th of April 2014
And most importantly: Have fun!!

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

I will also be at the Xena convention at Paris on the 27th of October so if you're going make sure to shout out so we can meet and stuff : D
That's all for this month!
Lots of love, thanks for following

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!!

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 !!

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

I do realize it's not a word. But then "curiouser and curiouser" isn't either :>
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.
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
Lastly: omg guys this playlist is orgasmic go listen to it right now
Lots of love!

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!
