PlayStation collaboration + 10th Daily DeviationHey guys,
Hope all of you are doing well despite all the hate and the disgusting actions happening around the globe lately.
I'm writing this journal because it's been almost a year I haven't wrote anything in here, so I'm thinking one journal a year would be a pretty good habit and a pretty good way to represent my lack of activity.
So here's some updates I would like to share if anyone is interested :
First of all, I was very happy last week to announce my collaboration with PlayStation. From now on, you'll be able to download some of my works on your PS4 and PS Vita and use them as Dynamic Themes. My artwork "Make a Wish" is the first one to be available on the PlayStation store, but more will come soon. You can purchase the theme here : https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/themes/apollo's-cosmos-dynamic-theme-full-hd/cid=UP2131-CUSA01736_00-FAKHOURYAPOLO15D?emcids-ga-944&utm_mediumaid_Search&utm_campaign=Network&utm_source=Google&utm_t
New works on Behance!Hey guys,
This is just a quick journal to keep you up to date with my recent works - the kind of works that I judge not fitting to my DeviantArt gallery in which I like to post only my Digital Art.
For those of you who would be interested in viewing my latest photography project, logos compilation or else, you can see them on my Behance, here:
Helping hands: https://www.behance.net/gallery/21795373/Helping-hands
Logo selection: https://www.behance.net/gallery/20128589/Logo-Selection
Virgin Radio 96: https://www.behance.net/gallery/11395511/Virgin-Radio-96
Hope you like it!
You can also follow me on my Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/Karim.Fakhoury1 for exclusive content of my work.
Thanks a lot!
9th DD, Print Shop and featuresHey guys!
I'm writing this journal as a touching base just to thank everyone for the recent appreciations of my work. I recently received my 9th Daily Deviation on my artwork "Tempus Fugit" which is always very exciting and honouring of course. I'm also using this opportunity to say hi to the new followers who joined in, hopefully I'll be able to release some content soon enough for you guys
Also, if anyone is interested, some of my illustrations are now available as prints on Society6, here : society6.com/karimfakhoury
Lastly, for any updates on my personal work, you can now follow me on my Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/Karim.Fakhoury1 which is pretty much the only place where I regularly post updates and exclusive content of my work.
It's been a while...I can't believe my last journal entry was written more than a year ago... Time really flies... And to think that I used to write these journal entries every other month really shows how my activity level downgraded from the last time I spoke with you guys..
I received my 7th DailyDeviation today, on my work "New Era" http://fav.me/d5n17ko , and I thought why not cease this perfect opportunity to finally get off my lazy butt and write a new journal entry.
Well... here I am. And I just realized that I don't have much to talk about...
Well, I know it's cheesy, but to be honest I simply want to thank all the people that still follow, comment and favorite my work, you have no idea how much I appreciate the support I receive knowing I'm barely providing content anymore!
Also, thanks to JohanBriend for suggesting my work as a DD, check out his work he has some pretty cool stuff!
New artworks coming soon, promise!
Thank you all (and for the few who read this entry), I love you.

I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.
I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.
I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking
How to get Popular as an Artist (EDIT)EDIT: Sooooo, this journal definitely proved my thoughts and point. Congratulations to myself, this is ironically my most popular journal on my DA.
NOW! I want to clear something first as many people seem to be mistaking and sort of bashing in the comments. People who do this type of content are not bad nor should be shamed. That is, if you really enjoy doing this type of content, there is nothing wrong drawing your favorite characters, wolves, cats, sexual content, tutorials, ect. (minus the drama... like seriously, this world needs less of that). I'm just a WEEE BIT tired of seeing young people and people that do art go straight into doing this because they get more noticed or this is the only way to get anywhere. They complain or abandon their passion/love that isn't 'oh so popular' (because it doesn't have advertisements/a pre-built fanbase, or a giant movie/tv show/game behind it) and move into something else that is trending just so they can be noticed. I know you want feedback.

Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.
2013: Revived and started the animation production. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2014: Resumed and held a contest. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2015: Resumed. Missing Halloween didn't miss Halloween!
For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.
By November 29, the animation is officially done. All 8+ minutes of it.
The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.
I was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.
Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality.
Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th
