Super Love

Valentine's Day is nearly here. Whether you have a love of your own, dream of meeting that perfect person, or are content to be alone, it's always a bit of fun to indulge in romance through our favorite fictional couples. This feature will showcase some of our favorite "couple" moments from the series -- now and in the future. We'll also have a special showcase of the "many loves" of the various characters in alternate universes/timelines.

Canon Love

Sometimes forever, sometimes short-lived, sometimes unrequited, sometimes fantasy, here are a few canon couples.

Different Times, Different Loves

The following pieces feature romances which are not a part of canon. However, we love love blossom between the cast and with other characters in various universes and time-periods. You can learn more about these alternate pairings (and see many more) at our sister-site,, or our Alternate Universe folder over at RelativityComic

Art Style - Don't Rush It!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 12, 2016, 7:00 PM

After a conversation I had with someone today I wanted to make a quick journal on the topic, since I think its something everyone (myself included) struggles with at some point in their artistic career. And that topic is style. Often I see on DA younger artists trying to find their style, and more importantly worrying that they wont, or that no one will like their art because of it. I'm here to say stop worrying about it! 

Style is not just the way your art looks, its all about the way you draw and whats comfortable for you. If you spend so much time worrying about it and thinking about it, you're going to end up with art that you aren't going to be happy with because your setting the bar too high. Style comes from yourself, and what your good at. Here are a few tips that I've learned over the years (and still should probably listen to) regarding art style.

1. Don't worry about it.

Whether you realize it or not, everyone has their own style. Its formed by how you lay your brush strokes, and interpret the world around you, and no one does that the same way! I can guarantee you that there is something about your art that is unique and recognizable, even if its as simple as the way you draw noses. 

2. Start with the basics.

Before you even worry about style at all, its important to know the fundamentals of art. Anatomy, color, composition, etc. Often times when doing studies of the fundamentals you will notice patterns in how you draw, and you will start to build a style whether you realize it or not. For example people tell me I paint backgrounds in a specific way, even if I am looking at a photo my way of painting is recognizable. I don't realize this or really see it, but it is there. This is the best way to form a style because you really get to know how you interpret things without the influence of other art and styles you see around the community.

3. Try many techniques and styles.

The most important thing to do when faced with the style problem is to try many different styles and techniques. For example you see an artist who does really cool shading, instead of saying "aw man I'll never be that good", look at it and say "wow I wonder if I could incorporate that technique into my own work". By trial and error you will find what feels right to you. If a style feels forced its not gonna work for you. Try something new! Keep broadening your skill set and adding on to what you already know and are good at, and eventually you will find your style and the direction you should be going in. I'm not gonna lie and say this is easy, it took me years to be comfortable with my art, and I'm still learning! Its a good idea to have a goal in mind, a place where you want to be art level wise, and do everything you can to get there. For me it was always landscape painting, and learning every new technique I could to get closer to my inspirations, not to mimic, but to be at their level of understanding and knowledge of art. A good thing to do is make a list of what you like about your art, and what you would like to improve on and go from there on your quest to find a comfortable and unique style!

4. Don't try to replicate someone's style to a T.

Your art style comes as a result of the way you draw, and how you see the world around you. And while other artists can very much influence your style, don't try to copy someone elses style line for line. You want to look at those artists that inspire you so and say to yourself "what is it about their art that I love so much, is that something I can incorporate into my own?". Another thing I see very often is "trend" styles. By this I mean a large number of artists try to make their art look like whats popular, and what sells which is fine but its often hard to pick out styles from this crowd and know exactly who drew what. If your trying so hard to make your art popular and not what your comfortable with, its not going to work out for you. The best artists on this site, notice how you can always distinguish their art from another? That's because they worked hard to make their art unique and stand out from the crowd, and that's how you get followers, watchers and commissions, not by being a copy cat. People will come to you because your art has someone no one else has, trust me!

In conclusion, to those out their struggling to find a style, it will come to you in time. It won't happen over night but just remember to draw what you like, and in a way that you enjoy and it will all fit together I promise! Remember it is okay to try other artists styles and techniques, but give proper credit where credit is due. :)
