Sabtastic's News

Posted by Sabtastic - May 3rd, 2012


Made it back in one piece from Pico Day! Yaay!
Here are the photos I ended up taking... And a link to facebook, just for shits!
(Feel free to tag yourself if you're in anything)

[Sab's Pics from Pico Day]

I had a blast. Everyone there, even though they started out as complete strangers, were more or less BFF's FOREVER by the end of the trip... And some of them only got to hang out for one or two days! The whole Pico Day experience was really inspiring too. It really got me out of a rut and made me eager to learn new things from all of the ridiculously talented people there.

I ended up Staying at Stamper, Mike, AlmightyHans, and Oney's classy new place. They were awesome hosts. The house itself was this really awesome 7 bedroom place, and throughout the Pico Day weekend, there must have been at least 10 people there at all times.

Over the 5 or 6 days I spent there, I had time to check out some local attractions, like the Mutter Museum (bizarre corpses and stuff), try authentic Philly cheesesteaks, discover how cool 'Wawa' convenience stores are, and how much it sucks that Canada doesn't have them. I got to test out JohnnyUtah's Cintiq tablet (It's now MANDATORY that I get one because those things are fantastic, and I was accused of being a terrorist by TD Bank while I was there too. lol They refused to take my apparently shady Canadian currency when I was driving around with Mike, because my name came up on some OFAC blacklist... I don't even have a criminal record, n'or have I ever travelled to the states ...!! I had a connecting flight in California once, but holy damn...!

Anyway, my birthday itself was pretty fun, because I share it with some really cool people, and it was on Pico Day this year!
Redminus and Tom Fulp!
Tom's birthday is actually on the 30th, but Pico Day is his big day too, so it was really neat to celebrate at the same time.

So.. .Yeah! During the last few days that I was there, Stamperand Hansended up buying themselves a sweet new fire pit, and we it was so fun and relaxing that almost literally just sat around talking until I had to leave for Canada. It was so unbelieveably chill. Mike was there, Oney, JohnnyUtah, AlmightyHans, Happy Harry, his girlfriend Sucho and MasterArdvark--
We all swapped stories and made dick jokes. It was a gay ol' time.

TL;DR: I really hope I can go back there again soon.
I really felt at home, and I had a blast. Thanks for the birthday wishes, everybody! <3

Adventures from Pico Day and my 22nd Birthday


Posted by Sabtastic - April 26th, 2012


Friday the 27th I'll be in Philly! PM me if you're going to Pico day too and you'd like to meet up some time!!

I'm hoping to get a group of people together (or tag along with peeps who already have something sorted out) to tour around and see the sights. I'll be staying until 4pm May the 1st.

Looking forward to meeting everybody!

(Awesome art below was supplied by Jazza)

Leaving for Philly Today!!


Posted by Sabtastic - April 12th, 2012


It's offical! Going to Pico Day at the end of April! :D

See you dudes there!
I'm staying 'till May 1st, too, since PA is such a long way out of my way.

Look for the tall-ish brunette with straight hair documenting her every move with pictures. Tourist mode will be fully activated and I will likely ask for your autograph or a picture, so consider this fair warning! :V

I'm usually good with names, too, so don't be shy to just introduce yourself. Once I have a face to match with the Newgrounds alias, I'll likely be fine to address you on a first name basis. :U ... BUT NO PROMISES!

ALSO, DID I MENTION THAT MY BIRTHDAY IS THE SAME DAY AS PICO DAY?? 8D
NO BIG DEAL, JUST GOING TO BE 22 THAT DAY. :D :D :D

Here's a picture of my ugly mug just in case you don't know what I look like already:

Bought my Plane Ticket for Pico Day!

Word of warning to my fellow artists: Watermark your shit.
I'm the biggest hypocrite for this, because I never do, but I get my stuff stolen pretty frequently because of it.
So save yourselves the grief. It's a pain in the ass to deal with. Trust me.

"Welcome to the internet", I guess, eh?

On Saturday, the last art submission of mine ended up being photoshopped and posted all over sites like Reddit, 9Gag, Funnyjunk, Imgur and a few other sites a few days ago. I ended up losing out on over 100,000 potential viewers in one day, just because I made the rookie mistake of choosing not to watermark. It shouldn't have been a surprise to me, seeing as it was a 'meme' related art submission, and those things spread faster than herpes at an orgy, but it caused me a lot of grief

The "theif" ended up photoshopping my web signature and name out of the image, essentially claiming anonymity and/or ownership. Of COURSE, that was the version of the image that got crazy popular. I tell ya, nothing grinds Sab's gears like art theft. -- If you're an artist yourself, you will understand fully. It makes you never want to share your own work on the internet ever again.

AAANYWAY. Enough of my bitching and groaning:

Any of my fellow Canucks making it down to Pico Day in Pensylvania this year?? I'm really trying my darndest to save up this year and go! Drop me a line if you are, because we could work something out in terms of travelling - wouldn't hurt to have a travel buddy, save for the fact that you might be an axe murderer, I suppose.

Looking forward to seeing some of you there!!

Oh. And here's the picture that ended up all over the interpipes:

Art Theft Drama and Plans to Make it out for Pico Day


Posted by Sabtastic - January 24th, 2012


Hey guys!! I've posted a sweet new art thread to get those creative juices flowing! CHECK IT!!
We've already got some pretty awesome submissions by artists like Gonzossm, M-Vero, and myself!

[Pokemon Thunderdome Discussion Thread]
[Pokemon Thunderdome Art Thread]

Here's how it works:
I post a drawing of a Pokemon. Let's say it's a ... Mudkip. You would call 'dibs' on that, and within THREE HOURS, reply with a drawing of your Pokemon (Let's say Pikachu) beating the ever loving CRAP out of Mudkip. Someone else would see your post, call "Dibs!" and draw their Pokemon (Charizard) beating the living snot out of Pikachu! ... And so on, and so forth! Basically you'd just reply to the last Pokemon you see with a drawing meant to dethrone the current champion.

GO GIVE IT A TRY!! :D

P.S: Sorry to the first post guys who ended up getting confused about us already having some submissions to post! :C No one else has pre-completed art to post, so starting with banette, it's fair game!!

SUP BROS! :D
I Missed you guys!!!

Been so long since I've updated...! Holy shit:
Grab a snack, pop a squat, and get comfy! I've got lots to update about, so I'll point-form it!! :P

- Finished my first semmester at a new University (U of Alberta) and I'm two years away from being a fully certified high school teacher.

- Moved out into my first apartment with my sister Mel, a.k.a Pickletoez and my boyfriend, Jordan. (picture of our sweet new crib, below)
- Managed to get a job for the city, working at a local leisure centre. It's the best. job. ever (so far). I get to draw at work most days, because it's so quiet and I get paid more than I've ever been paid per hour.

- Sketched some concept art for said commissions.
[Classy Pokes]
[Realistic-ish Pokes]
[Kangaroo/Llama Ampharos]
[Quagsire + Bidoof = Quagoof]
[Creepy Tentacruel Sketch]
[Ballin' Bowler Hat Sableye]
- Celebrated Christmas, scored a shit-ton of sweet art-related swag, including a HUGE new Moleskine sketchbook. (..Sketchbook #3, here we come!!!)
- Drew my last drawing of 2011, Black Cat (again) from Marvel Comics
[Black Cat in Prismacolor]
- Drew my first drawing of 2012 Mia Stone, an original character.
[Mia Stone Doodle]
- Scored myself a sweet new drafting table for 25 bucks on kijiji.com! (local classifieds site) (picture on bottom)
- Decided to take the next semmester of school off for financial and artistic reasons. Planning on making my first comic-con table this year in Edmonton! (in town late summer)
- Posted a new drawing to the art portal - a birthday gift for Nekow!
[Sonja Red, from Marvel]

And most importantly...

- Finally got used to my new schedule, so I can update on a regular basis again!! Huzzah!!

Well hello again, strangers! :D I'm Back!

After about a week of trying to piece it together, I've finally finished my second interactive sketchbook! Have a look, leave a rating, or if you're feeling really generous, write me a review! :)

I'm really happy with how it turned out. Slowly but surely, I'm figuring out the basics of Flash... So, huzzah!! The only thing I couldn't get working were advertisements, buh meh. You guys probably prefer ad-free submissions anyway.

[ A SABTASTIC SKETCHBOOK - VOLUME 2 ]

Anyway, enough chit-chat! Go see!!! :D

MADE A NEW INTERACTIVE SKETCHBOOK!

Whelp! Thanks for watching the livestream, guys! Was a nice turn-out even though I've been inactive for like 2 solid months.

Here's my LiveStream channel if you want to see the saved stream for yourself. :)
Might want to fast-forward. lol Lots of technical difficulties.
