Blue Dragon Art

June is Pride Month, and I try my best to do at least one video to celebrate annually. While I've discussed Rhina, Niki, & Xue Feng (the later two have yet to be introduced into the comic), I haven't talked much on Kanna. In this video, I'll explain why.

"Power Shutoff" by Craig MacArthur

"Muriel" by Bobby Richards

It's been a little while since the final page of Battle Royal has posted, so I decided it was time to go into some details about my intentions, my struggles, and my attempts to portray a visual I previously feel I failed at in the original incarnation of Dark Horse.

As I've said on this channel before, I think it's good to have a fair, but also critical eye on one's own work. So when I look back on older pages, I'm fair to myself, but also critical as a means to help improve.

"Above Planets" and "Alaska Skies" by Patrick Patrikios
"Midnyte" by Noir Et Blanc Vie

**Whoa! Big correction! I called a character on the cover "Kate Blast," but it was actually Ashley from Alter Girl! I had a sneaky suspicion I was wrong, but going back through after the video I was like, oh sh*t! So yeah, Alter Girl! No Kate Blast! Both are in our collective. Okay, now onto the regular description.

It's here! The debut of Glitter and Gold: Aradia Magical Girl Collective's FIRST zine! Join me as we take a quick flip through the FREE 30 page zine coordinated and dispersed by Aradia!

"Jupiter" by Silent Partner

I misspelled Procurements in the video title card. Also, "procurments is technically not a word, I guess, but hey! I'm using it XD

Patrons have questions, I have answers. I talk about my scanner, my planner, my art manner, and more!

The final peek into my 2015-2021 sketch book tour. It's long, but believe you me, I edited out over 20 minutes of stuff. There's more art that I am proud of in this video, but there's still a lot of literally sketchy sketches that are just jotting down ideas :D

Comic Fury Zine, a free comics anthology, is currently in the works for summer 2022, and I decided I'd go ahead and create my own one-shot for Dark Horse. In this video, I work on the cover art for my submission. I discuss my influences, process, and intent with this short story. During the video, I sketch, collage, and ink the cover art.

Apologies:
*I like iMovie, but it has some really annoying quirks! I had updated the credits card, but if you click out of it or don't click out of it (there's something I don't know what, or I'd stop doing it), it will not save your changes D: I'm sorry there's no credits in the video proper :( Ultimately, this was my fault for being in a hurry and not paying attention to details. I apologize. FYI: Credits are always listed here in the description! *

Got lots of questions about Shimiko, from my comic Dark Horse. So let's answer some of them! There's also a few updates on the completion of the revamp of Act 9 and events.

"Last Train to Mars" by Dan Lebowitz

I am sorry for the delay! This was ready and uploaded at 4pm on Earth Day. The processing took...wow. Just wow. Sorry I didn't get this video done Thursday. I had no idea it would take so long to process (not upload, it uploaded relatively quick). My apologies!
________________
I just did a blue character with pink hair, now it's a pink character with blue clothes. Clearly I need a knew scheme! Color scheme, that is. Anywho!

This is not the greatest of videos high lighting Earth Day. I am a mess this year, and that's evident in how little I talk about the earth. But uh...I name drop FFVII...that's um...that's like earth support group video game, right? Right?

No. Anyway, have fun while I draw a flower fairy and stream of conscious babble :D

"URL Melt," "Wolf Moon," and "Digital Ghosts" by Unicorn Heads

Hey! Some of you may remember back in 2019, when I first colored this page for Dark Horse. I've finally reached this image in the revamp, and I thought it'd be fun to do a compare and contrast. One thing that I find valuable is something I've learned from my art courses: it's GOOD to look at your own art critically, and evaluate what you did well, and what you can improve. So this retrospective is just talking about the good and the bad of the old image, and demonstrating some ways I *feel* I improved upon the page.

And of course this is all subjective, and my opinion may change three more years down the road, but hey! We have to meet ourselves where we are, be critical, but also supportive of ourselves :)

If you can't take your own critiques, then you're not going to handle the real world very well XD XD Although, it's true we are also generally speaking our own worst critics XD

A couple videos ago, I mentioned doing a more thorough exploration of the topic of networking in the comic art community. So while working on updating my cast page with Karin Blu's biography, I go into detail about some ways I personally have networked.

I also give some warnings, because networking takes time and effort, and you really have to trust your own judgment on what's worth your time, and what's not, while also being patient. But above all else, I do try to caution to put your own energies and mental healthcare above networking: Trust yourself and know your own limits!

Enjoy the video!

In this video, I just demonstrate how I up-cycle an old frame. I clean up the original matt board, cut down the boarders of the completed image to be framed, as well as talk about piecing your frame back together, with tips and things to keep in mind when putting it all in place :D

Image being framed is titled Verdant, Version 1.

I'm sorry this is late again. With no option to schedule videos, and everything being so busy right now, these are probably going to be a little late as rule of thumb. I'm sorry for that! I anyone knows how to schedule in advance, please let me know!

"Drifting at 432 Hz," "Early Avril," and "Vital Whales" by Unicorn Heads

First: apologies for the delay! I was traveling literally all day yesterday, so I just got settled, and am making this video visible. If anyone knows how to schedule videos to post on Bit Chute, please let me know.

No one asked for this crappy tutorial, and it really shouldn't be taken too seriously XD But hey! If you wanted to make something like this, you could also use it as a background to drop text over the top of XD

Next week is the Q & A!

Let's finish up this awkward page I'm working on (hey, you can see the uncensored version on my comic! You know you want to...uh...I hope you can tell I'm being sarcastic. Anyway, only on ComicFury and my main website). Let's go over some goals for 2022, and hopefully get yourselves geared up for some resolutions, too!

Happy New Year! Let's make it good!

"URL Melt" by Unicorn Heads

Well, I broke down and censored this video, just because across the board I'm pretty sure no video service allows even stimulated phallus. And the topic of discussion is a review of what I set out to accomplish in 2021. I do these videos annually now, in two parts, as a way to keep myself on track, but also to serve as inspiration for others to set some goals and work on a plan to achieve them.

Enjoy the video!

It's a new year, and it's time to reflect on the previous year, and set goals for the fresh one! New Years is an interesting time of mild optimism for swiping the slate clean and starting anew! But while I think it's good to take advantage of that renewed motivation, it's also good to reflect on the past and see where you want to go from there.

If this video inspires you to look back, not in anger but reflection, then great! And if you didn't attain everything you set out to, don't beat yourself up! You spent the year doing something, and that's nothing to snub one's nose at.

Anyway, Happy New Year! Let's make it good!

*Dark Horse, and by extension this video, is targeting an adult audience! Dark Horse has violence, language, nudity, and sexual situations*

"Wolf Moon" and "Drifting at 432 Hz" by Unicorn Heads

I mildly curse in this video. Nothing that awful. Just a head's up: this channel is for adults who don't mind a little cursing here and there.

Also, I made a mistake: there is no music. Sorry. I've been juggling a lot lately, and trying to get a stack of videos ready before I journey back to the Midwest to visit family.

I also had to edit a lot of this down and lower the video quality to suit the size restrictions of BitChute. Lucky for me, Confessions of a Crap Artist, I suck anyway! (Kudos to anyone getting that allusion). If you want to see the full version of this video in slightly better quality, check out my YouTube channel.

This is a Q & A. I get questions. I try to give answers. I do this once a month.

Well it's about time I uploaded an explanation of what the heck this channel does. In this video, I explain what you can come to expect from Blue Dragon Art, as well as why I created this account.

That's all folks!

Read my free web comic if you like. It is rated Mature, so no minors!
