Hello humans!

I've decided that is officially the new way I'm going to greet people.  All emails from now on will start with "Good morning, human".  I'm sure the bosses would think that's funny, right?

So Mr. :iconautopsysoldier: and I are SOOOO close to being finished with our game for iOS devices. Its going to be a fun helicopter type of game where you are a UFO and you try to pick up items for points while avoiding evil asteroids! We are really stoked and super excited to be so close to finishing.  The really big thing we have left to do is implement sound effects...I tried making some with some free software but sound effects are DEFINITELY NOT my forte. In fact, they are whatever the complete OPPOSITE of a forte is. That and math.  You all know what I mean!?

If you're interested in keeping abreast on all our game activity, check out our website: or follow us on!/AxieStudios

Hello everyone out there in Deviant Art land!

My partner in crime :iconautopsysoldier: and I are working double overtime (not just full time...but double overtime) to try and get a game that we started recently finished for iOS.  I'm doing the art work and he is programming--and it's coming out so good so far!  We really wanted to be done by the end of this holiday weekend, know how things go...

I've posted our little alien character, Jimmy, in my gallery, but if you're interested in seeing screen shots and updates on the game, check out our website!

Hello everyone!

How are ya'll doin'?  Good or GREAT!?  I hope great!

I just wanted to drop in and say sorry for taking so long to get back to people lately. I promise I'm not a jerk, I just got a new full-time job and only really get on DA on the weekends (if that).  So if you happen to write me, or fave something, and it takes me forever and a day to get back to you, don't mentally flip me off (cuz that'd be mean)...I'll get back to you, even though it may be later than sooner :aww:

As for other news in the world of Ashley: this weekend I hope to be finishing up my art trade for :iconmiss-cherry-martini:, then starting a much belated painting for my Rico :iconautopsysoldier: and then getting to work on an art trade with :iconheysugar: who is waiting very patiently for my slow ass (and check out the super cute charm she made for me Pink Cupcake Charm by heysugar!)

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 19, 2010, 2:40 PM

Hey ya'll (idk why I said ya'll...I never say that in real life :shrug:) tonight is the opening of the "Off the Wall" exhibit at the Riverside Art Museum.  The opening reception is from 6:00pm-8:30pm and you can come, find a piece you like, take it off the wall and buy it.  I put in both White Moth and Nectar up for sale, plus this little macaron piece (that I haven't posted yet).

Off the Wall runs from tonight, November 19th until Thursday, December 2nd at 8:00pm (and I think that's an Arts Walk night when downtown Riverside is alive with art lol).

If you'd like more info:
Address of RAM is 3425 Mission Inn Avenue, Riverside, CA 92501.

Wish me luck! :aww:

Amazing color and lighting tutorial

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 18, 2010, 4:03 PM

So I don't write a lot of journals because, frankly, who would read them!? lol but I just ran into something that I want to share with the WORLD (or at least whoever happens to read this :aww:)

How I See Color - A Tutorial by glitchedpuppet or here's the

It is a tutorial made by :iconglitchedpuppet: about color choice, color harmony, lighting, shading...and other random yet related stuff.  It has over 10,000 :+fav:'s (crazy, right?) so I apologize if you've already seen it, but for those of you who haven't and really care about understanding color better I more than recommend it.

It is sorta long, and handwritten, but the author is funny and knowledgeable and I learned more in time it took me to read it about color than 4+ years of college ever taught me.

I know color harmony and shading are two things that a lot of people seem to struggle with even though they're so important, and this was really a huge help to me.

Hope you guys learn as much as I did! :w00t:

First Journal Post

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 6, 2010, 11:51 PM

This post actually serves two purposes--1. I want to try out a journal skin and 2. I felt like sharing my thoughts :D (which I guess is kinda obvious.)

I really honestly want to become a better artist.  Seeing all the amazing, talented artists on DA it makes me realize that I need to step it up!!!  

So please please please give me constructive feed back on any of my pieces, it will be more than appreciated.
