For the last week, I've reached out to you guys to find out what kind of tutorials you would be most interested in seeing! Once I collected the topics, I reached out to as many artists that I could find that were advanced in those topics to help write a "mini" tutorial full of tips and tricks for you guys.
"Overall Painted Look"
"My techniques is pretty much simple and the soft painted look can be achieved quite easily. What I do is:
Using a spot healing brush I remove spots, if any from the skin.
Then use a mixer brush over it using the following values:
Wet: 17%, Load: 15%, Mix: 17%, Flow: 18%, which not only smoothens the skin but also softens it.
At the end of it all, I dodge and burn wherever necessary. Alternatively, I use a white brush of low opacity somewhere between 30-35% and paint over the highlights, then apply a Gaussian blur of 15-16 pixels. and for the shadows I go over them with a much lower opaci

Some of you might remember the old days on conceptart.org when everyone would post all the things they drew every day and kick each other's butt and give critique and get motivated over seeing how much everyone around you would be improving. For the last years, there hasn't really been a place to get that kind of motivation any more.
I made a small forum to rekindle that kind of helpful atmosphere. It's a really small community, just for posting practice work and getting critique from others. A bunch of great people are already there posting their daily stuff and kicking each other's butt. Obviously I'm there too, updat

Allpose: *Last* last call for booksIf you ordered books from me, they should be going out within the next 5 days.Allpose: *Last* last call for books3 years ago in Personal More Like This
SORRY IT'S TAKING SO LONG!! USPS raised their rates for people outside the US and I have to make sure I have shipping for everyone in one action. Thank you everyone for your patience. I love you all. (it's true)
I wasn't able to get rid of these books as easily as I was thinking...so I still have them.
I'm running low on the couples books but I still have plenty of the rest.
I'm open back up and would really like to sell them all. Please! 8D
They're super useful and I really want to see people use them. So stop by the store!
The USPS did away with surface to air shipping overseas. That means I, unfortunately, have to charge an additional $40+ to anyone outside of the US (except for Canada, I think). So be aware of that.
How is everyone doing, btw? ...school started and everything else!

Necks for anatomy practiceI need to see loads of examples before I can get something. So here's loads of necks doing the weird necky things that necks do.Necks for anatomy practice3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To get what's going on with the tangle of muscles and tendons catch necks in action. Watch people in cafes. Pause TV. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer has particularly good lighting for drawing.) Then check out how cartoonists simplify the confusion. Maybe even check out some anatomy to see what's going on beneath the skin. Each gives you a different piece of the puzzle.
Organized by where the head is relative to the shoulders, then by where the camera is. So each group should have the same muscles and tendons bulging out. (If you post drawings from any stock here, do check the stock artist's rules.) NOTE: Images marked with ⬅ are NOT stock. Use them for practice, but don't post. (There's only one image marked since there's so much great stock.)
If you stumble across good neck stock, especially with good shadows, I'd l
Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 9 Ive been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artists works that I have come across. It started off as stock I cant provide myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 94 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Skin Copic Marker TutorialSkin Copic Marker Tutorial9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Hi everyone! I'm back from the previous Black & White Tutorial! Here's a tutorial with skin colors, almost the same concept, but a bit different. (sorry if camera quality is really bad, it was night time)
Finished drawingCopicsCopic colors E00, E11, E13, R20EraserWhite pen
Always, Always start with the darkest copic (E13), in case you don't have the blender copic (which I don't, I find it kind of useless.) This depends on where the light is coming from, which for me, its coming on the right side. Use the chisel tip for the edges, since the brush tends to spread a lot.
From then on, you can use E11, a little more, and then E00 for the slightly lightest part of the skin, and R00 to the side of the cheeks.
Hopefully your skin will look like this! If you have a dark skinned character, you can use E18 as the darkest, and
Speedpaint in Verve!Here is an hour long painting I did in Verve to see if it could produce something decent in it... not bad! I really love the more traditional look.

Kiriban! Is it always fair is it?Something that bothers me greatly about this site is that lots of people make page views, watches, favs, and popularity their main focus on here. People, it's called deviantART not deviantPAGEVIEWS. I mean really, what's so special about 10,000 page views? Or 300 watchers? It's just a number. I came to this site to share art, make friends, receive critique, and improve and gain tips from other artists. That's what the site is meant for, so I really don't get why people can get so obsessed over a big number.Kiriban! Is it always fair is it?3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

PE: Know your lineworkTraditional Art WeekPE: Know your linework10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
When you like drawing, but seek for something stronger than pencil, ink might be a good choice. While it takes time to get used to it (like everything), it's not that hard when you learn the basics, and this article will focus on one of the common uses of ink - lineart.
The first thing that you need is ink. But what kind? Depending whether you plan to draw a lone ink drawing, or mix it with something else, there are different options for different ways of handling your picture. Here are the most common choices:
Waterproof ink - is the most useful when you want to add a layer or layers of paint or water-diluted ink (with a brush) over your your lineart.
Not waterproof ink, like Indian or China ink. It's suitable when your picture is 100% drawing and you don't plan painting over it (of course, you can go ahead and experiment with smudging it with water, but this article focuses just on the lineart).
Coloured ink - whatever yo

I'm in Japan on vacation right now so I don't get to check in on my websites too much but I did just now and noticed I got a ... a Deviousness award :0
:0 :0 ;0
It especially means a lot since I owe so much to DeviantArt. I can sincerely say I owe my career to this website, its thanks to them I've had job offers who led to me working in the video game industry at a pretty young age, thanks to them I've gotten magazines to notice me and commission workshops, thanks to them I was able to find smaller gigs early on and so much more. I've met awesome people here, constantly find new inspirations and best of all, am able to share with others my passion for art.
My life would be quite different without DeviantArt.
SO, A MASSIVE THANK YOU!
