|Dixie a Diddy clone? I think not! Now go vote for her!|
I am going to switch gears here for a little while so please forgive me if my art becomes super repetitive. I am putting my comic and Digimon stuff aside and will be drawing more Super Smash Bros art. Most specifically DIXIE KONG art. Why?...
- Not every Dixie Fan knows about this voting ballot from Nintendo
- Sadly, Nintendo also said that people are allowed to vote ANY game character for them to take into consideration which means 3rd party characters as well. This has really crippled Dixie’s chances of getting in by a huge amount. Due to the lack of support. I’d be heart broken if some 3rd party character from an inde game got in before a deserving Nintendo vet.
- Other people aren't voting her under ASSUMPTION that she will be in anyways... PEOPLE PLEASE HEAR ME OUT! If you really want her in the game DO NOT VOTE SOMEONE ELSE BASED ON ASSUMPTION. If she was going to be in the game... She definitely would have been by now. This is one of the WORST things you can do. So vote TO MAKE DARN SURE she get's in PLEASE.
- Other Campaigns or individuals that just don't know any better... have convinced people that she would be a Diddy Kong clone and has 0% chance of being a unique fighter… Which is flat out BULLCRAP.
I’m currently working on pics of a move set I’ll animate to prove these individuals wrong in hopes of them seeing her in a different light and voting for her.
As well as others working on some other cool movesets that show off her awesome potential as well!
I am sure there are Dixie fans out there they are just scattered and need to all come together for this cause.
Also copy and paste this into your DA sig AND IN THE DESCRIPTION OF EVERY DIXIE PEICE YOU HAVE UPLOADED TO DA to help show support and get the word out
VOTE DIXIE KONG FOR SMASH DLC!SERIOUSLY TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS IF WE JUST COME TOGETHER AS ONE AND LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD!!!!
As everyone knows I am trying to get serious with my art. Currently I am trying to save up for a house and get my life on track and stuff. I’m trying to find a way to actually make a steady income off of my art. Yes I’d like to make a living off my art but in reality the long term goal is so much more. Now let’s be realistic for a second…I know A LOT of people want to do this and in order to do this you have to stand out above or equal to others who are really good. Well I have been absent for a while here because I have been studying a lot of art and stuff trying to get better.
There is a site called Patreon which is like individual crowd funding at a low cost for the followers. I have seen people flop on this site and I have seen people MAKE SERIOUS BANK on this site. There are many users that have been very successful on this site but these two users definitely come to mind
They are 2 artist I really really REALLY look up to and there art is leagues above mine so they definitely deserve every PENNY of what they are racking in right now. With that being said I’d like to try to Aim for at least $2,000 a month. The only issue with that is I feel that if I make an account on Patreon I won’t get much support because not a lot of people will know about it due to the fact that I don’t have nearly as many watchers on my DA as they do. Than and I don’t stay consistent with my account but I’d definitely feel more obligated to draw if I KNEW people were giving money for it.
$10 a week ($40 per month)
*Un water marked Art
*Process images of the work (like the progression from line art to full color)
*full size 300 dpi PNG files that you can print for your OWN personal use.
*Process videos/speed paints with commentary
*Live private streaming of Patreon projects with the chance to ask questions and get tips/help during streams. (I stream on picarto and I need a premium Patreon account to private stream so that way I can focus only on the people that actually pay and support. Premium accounts are 9.99 a month so I’s at least get $30 a month out of the $40)
NAME: Jessica Cone (Urmanec)
D.O.B.: April 15, 1990
LOCATION: Jacksonville, FL
My name is Jessica and was born and grew up in Jacksonville Fl. I graduated from a technical academy high school in 2008 and am currently a full time student at FSCJ (Florida State College of Jacksonville) pursuing my bachelor’s degree In Multimedia and Design while also holding down a part-time job at UPS.
I have been drawing since I was young and figured out that a crayon could put a mark on a piece of paper… or walls. My first picture was a picture of Yoshi from the front of the Super Mario World instruction booklet. Video games and cartoons were among some of my biggest inspirations that got me into art. For Middle school I auditioned for an Art school, LaVilla School of the Arts but was denied and told cartoons/anime and video games were not art. A normal middle school was pretty tough seeing how I didn't mesh well with the others because I couldn't recite the latest rap songs, or dance, or play basketball, or do hair styling. My interest in art, video games, and cartoons was considered kiddy, immature and dorky prompting me to became the lone wolf type and just stayed focused on my art and being myself despite the other kids.
Because I was rejected from the School of the arts I was not permitted to enter Douglas Anderson, a High school for arts and studies. Instead I got accepted into Frank H. Peterson Academies of technology where I took up commercial arts and learned the basics to drawing and how to incorporate them with Adobe products such as Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash. Upon entering high school I was a pretty disturbed individual. My mother was an abusive drug addict that almost killed me twice and my father was hardly home because he was too busy being her enabler to the point that he lost two houses and had to live in hotels forcing me to live at my grandmother’s where I hardly had freedom to do anything EXCEPT draw. Space was very limited. Not caring much about school, I just copied other people’s homework, never paid attention in class, got into fights, was almost sent to a correctional school and was on the verge of dropping out until one teacher noticed my talent for drawing and directed me to a dropout prevention program.
During my 11th grade year I was adopted into the family of my best friend from middle school. I also was able to enter a national graphic design competition that I ended up placing 1st in out of the entire state of Florida. From there having a stable/peaceful living environment I was able to pull my grades up to A’s and B’s and was awarded a 4 year scholarship to college for completing the program. Upon entering college I was faced with more problems and was forced to drop out to get a second job to put a roof over my head. It was then I was diagnosed as borderline diabetic and my heath was getting pretty bad. I then met my amazing boyfriend who now takes excellent care of me. He put his education on hold to work two jobs to make sure I have a roof over my head, food to eat, and can complete school. But, through it all I never gave up on my art.
With that being said, I want to become an illustrator. I want to draw graphics or make characters for video games, or make posters or even comics! Anything having to do with drawing. I want my art and stories to be able to reach out and inspire those going through tough times. I want to be able to show people that things we may consider bad happen for a reason and that we can still get up and walk on to see another day. A sad truth is that a lot of talent is wasted daily due to people becoming jaded because of the life around them. I would like to share with the world that no matter what your upbringing was or difficulties you may be forced to face in your life it is important to never EVER give up on your hopes and dreams because what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger.
