things i lermed for how to do art-sketch when u feel a burning flame in your heart.things i lermed for how to do art4 months ago in Personal More Like This
-keep a list of things u want to draw for when the flames are burnin but the brain's not churnin
-don't try to draw if u feel empty and sad, go outside and flail ur legs back and forth instead, write off entire weeks for exercise and doing real life instead of art if you gotta, it's not something u'll forget how do so don't stress
-you can draw anytime even in the morning if you want to
-especially try to do the good lineart on the faces and eyes early in the day before the coffee kicks in
-don't start with the eyes don't start with the eyes DON'T start with the eyes start with the hair to warm up your pencil THEN do the eyes
-pray/dance/meditate before u pencil the eyes
-don't erase it, just transform tool on the computer
-what is traditional media? its where you lower your standards and try to calm down, good luck with patience
-back up BACK UP hold ur paper far away from your face and unfold that pretzel of a spine to check on
Copic Markers and Pony colorsI get a LOT of questions regarding what colors I use where when it comes to the ponies, and I keep saying I'm gonna make a little guide. Well, let's give it a shot.Copic Markers and Pony colors1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For the majority of my covers, I use Copic markers to color. Copics are light-fast, alcohol markers... not unlike a classic school marker, but higher quality. I prefer Copic over other brands primarily for a few reasons: Variable tips (markers, fine, brush, etc), better blending, and they can be refilled! This is the BIG selling point to me... this means you can buy the marker once, and continue to refill. It also means you can custom blend colors should you desire. Copics also guarantee that if you buy Y00 yellow, and then buy another down the line, the colors will match. I've bought the same marker color from other brands and had them not match. I will use other brands here and there for very specific colors or effects, but Copic is 99% of my marker work.
So... when I do a cover or whatever, I do basic ink lines first wit

Heya everyone I'm back! I only have one assignment due this week so yeah-- Anyway IT'S GREAT TO BE BACK TIME TO GET INTO SOME ACTION BECAUSE THERE MIGHT BE SOMETHING/S YOU GUYS ARE MISSING OUT ON.
Also this is a very important announcement regarding the downloading of mp3s. Unfortunately nicomimi does not work anymore, and the only way we can download things the easy way is to use flvto to extract the mp3 out of the youtube videos I'm giving you guys.
I'm personally using FreeWare, but it's only for people who have a NND account.
But please if you're getting a NND account for this reason (downloading mp3s) please use NND English if you want to comment on the videos in English. NND English exists for a reason and it won't be respectful to comment on NND Japan because you're commenting in English amongst Japanese commenters. So again, please please PLEASE use NND English if you want to comment in English.

The Textures Feature Vol. IIHi everyone!The Textures Feature Vol. II11 months ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, thank you for over 500 watchers! Can't really imagine that there's so many people who like what I do - but I am more than thankful for that. Also, thanks to the people who made donations in order to support my work here. When I opened that donation pool, I didn't think that there would be donations any time soon. But you surprised me and I don't really know how you thank you for that. Well, except saying thank you! It's a huge motivation for me to carry on with what I do. Now I hope this journal will be a small motivation for the artists featured here, too. Hope you will continue making amazing art!
Screentone or are you ...?Screentone or are you ...?5 years ago in Personal More Like This
" Screentone is a technique for applying textures and shades to drawings, used as an alternative to hatching. In the conventional process, patterns are transferred
to paper from preprinted sheets, but the technique is also simulated in computer graphics. It is also known by the common brand names Zip-A-Tone (1937, now defunct),
Chart-Pak (1949), and Letratone (1966, from Letraset).
A traditional screentone sheet consists of a flexible transparent backing, the printed texture, and a wax adhesive layer. The sheet is applied to the paper, adhesive down,
and rubbed with a stylus on the backing side. The backing is then peeled off, leaving the ink adhered to the paper where pressure was applied.A screentone saves an artist's
time by allowing quick application of textures to line art where a hand-shaded area would not be reproduced in a timely or acceptable manner. Much like halftone, the size
and spacing of black dots, lines, or hatches determine how light or dark an area will appear.
Custom Box - Troubleshooting + FAQCustom BoxesCustom Box - Troubleshooting + FAQ2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Quite a few people still seem to have issues with getting their custom box backgrounds to work correctly so I thought I'd put this little troubleshooting guide and FAQ together to help. If you follow the instructions closely, you shouldn't have any problems.
If you encounter any issues that aren't explained here, please let me know. I will update this guide with any extra info or solutions as they are requested.
You can read more about customising your profile page here.

Tutorials and techniquesQuite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.Tutorials and techniques3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.

So remember a couple weeks back when I asked you guys to that news article for the November Contest? Remember that I held a raffle for all the people who 'd that article as a bonus incentive to help get the word out? Then remember when that raffle totally crashed and burned because the DeviantArt News messages were suddenly done away with, thus obliterating the whole listing of people who 'd it?
And remember how, after totally freaking out and succumbing to a panic-stricken stupor, I swore I would make up for i
