Tutorials and techniques 2It's time to refresh the tutorial journal! Added some new ones and removed those which, after some time, I found a bit misleading.Tutorials and techniques 23 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!

Expressions and emotions
Colour theory, selection and mixing VS light

"You can create your own Paintchat room by downloading the java application from shi-chans site. Getting passed the fact that all of its instructions are only in Japanese, the setup is quite simple (This is usually the reason why people find it difficult to setup; they can't understand the instructions. ) . The application runs on your computer, allowing it to serve as the host. This is much like how Opencanvas 1.1 works. You use your actual IP to connect via a web browser and your guests do the same.
So basically the requirements to do this are that you need to have a computer with a windows operating system and an internet connection that allows other computers to connect to it (If you are connected behind a router, you may need to change some settings.)
Heres a step by step guide to get you started:
1) Download the Java Paintchat A

Tutorial Showcase #16DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal. So here we go!Tutorial Showcase #161 year ago in Art Features More Like This

Since the newly announced ME3 ending DLC isn't going to be here until summertime, I'm going to need something to tide me over...
Let me break it down for you...
The THEME: Help me erase my ME3 sad panda blues.
Art: Create something that will help me forget how sad I was after ME3. This could be anything. Maybe something dealing with the aftermath of the battle, a victory celebration, some imagined future, could be a scene from a certain fanfic..., or it could be something completely different! It could be a comic strip or a sculpture. As long as it's Mass Effect themed and helps me resolve/forget about my 'ME3 ending' sadness infection.
Bonus points if you use my FemShep and/or Garrus - preferred, but not necessary.
Literature: Come up with a new ME3 ending involving my Shepard. I'm leaving this pretty open, though I will say I would prefer my Shep to not be a dead, also I have been known to frequent the indoctrination th

SurrealismSurrealism2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe
that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!‘Twas the night before Christmas on DeviantArt,Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!5 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Not a paintbrush was stirring, and creators took heart.
The artists scrolled through Daily Deviations with care
Knowing kindred warm-fuzzies soon would be there.
Deviants were all swiping, all snug on their phones
While visions of inspiration across all time zones
Were zapped to their smart device, quick as can be,
At the tap of a button in a +Fav’ing spree!
When across the Interwebs there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to the Comments to see what was the matter,
“I’m bored,” the Journal wrote, “I’m on a long trip, too.
I don’t have my laptop, and there’s nothing to do.”
I cracked all my knuckles, settled down in my chair,
Then descended upon the keyboard and wrote with a flair:
“Dear Friend, did you not get DA’s early present?
We now have an app, and it won’t cost you one cent!
“On, Watch Feed! On, Browse! On, Explore! On, Today!
