Quotes and philosophies:
"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye."

“The Universe is very, very big. It also loves a paradox. For example, it has some extremely strict rules. Rule number one: Nothing lasts forever.Not you or your family or your house or your planet or the sun. It is an absolute rule. Therefore when someone says that their love will never die, it means that their love is not real, for everything that is real dies. Rule number two: Everything lasts forever.”

"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before."

"Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world."

"What is it about fire? So calm and peaceful but… inside, all power and destruction. It’s hiding something. Just like people do."

"We're in a giant car heading towards a brick wall, and everone's arguing over where they're going to sit."

"The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude."

"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."

“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.”

"And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all."

"A fool flatters himself, a wise man flatters the fool."

“Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.”

"Make a change or it will change you."

I am influenced by:
Film noir, Neo-noir, Art Deco, Brutalist Architecture, geometric forms, symmetry, Romanticism, Art Nouveau, Gothic Architecture, Modernism, Realism, Cubism, Semi-realism, German Expressionism, Futurism and Retro-futurism.

100 Questions for a DeviantARTIST

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 12, 2014, 2:45 PM
01.] What is your pen name?
CommanderEVE

02.] What made you choose this name?
I was originally a Wall-E fan, and so I changed my pen name in 2009, I had a different pen name before CommanderEVE.

03.] Do you use PC or Mac?
PC

04.] What programs do you use most often?
Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom 4 and 5.

05.] Do you use mouse, or tablet?
Both. I use the mouse for all the technical aspects of my work (Drawing guidelines, grids, paint bucket tool, select tool and so on.) and the tablet for all the painting.

06.] What colour or colour combinations do you find yourself using most often?
Black, red, white, grey and sliver. Black and red. Black and white. Black, white and sliver.

07.] What part of a picture do you put most effort into?
The face and lighting.

08.] How long does it take you do draw a picture?
It depends. Digital sketches take between 1 to 2 hours. Detailed digital sketches take around 4 hours and my best pieces take from anywhere between 10 to 80+ hours, as when it goes past 80 hours I pretty much lose count. My Traditional Art is quicker; it usually takes me under an hour to create a sketch, a detailed sketch takes around 2 to 4 hours and my most detailed work takes between 5 to 20+ hours.

09.] Do you keep your rough drafts?
I keep everything.

10.] What font do you use most often?
Anything Art Deco inspired or anything that is angular has straight lines and is geometric.

11.] When you scan your image, what DPI do you use?
I do not scan my artwork, I photograph it with my DSLR, tripod and QP card.

12.] Do you do anything else when you're drawing?
Listen to music and sometimes talk with friends. I also take frequent breaks that include listening to music while starting out my bedroom window to think, or I get up and walk around the house and spend some time looking out the window in the kitchen, since it has a nice view, the best in my whole house.

13.] Approximately how many pictures do you draw in a month?
0 to 3, depending how I feel, these days I create about 6 artworks a year and I do not make sketches.

14.] What kind of paper do you draw your pictures on?
Heavy paper with fine grain.

15.] What kind of paper do you use for rough sketches and drafts?
The same as the above, I just love that paper. :eyes:

16.] How long does it take you to ink something?
Depends, if you mean colour in then it takes at least 60% of my time creating the piece.

17.] Do you do comics, or fan comics?
No. But I have been thinking about making a comic on Wings of Steel.

18.] Do you like comics? Are they fun to make?
Not sure, I have never made one.

19.] Have you ever submitted anything to a magazine?
Yes, when I first started drawing in 2001-2002. I submitted the drawing of a tennis ball made with oil pastels.
