"Only trees can give you lemons. But when they do, you squash them into the bottom of a diet coke and get on with your fucking life."
“We just have to watch Mikey and make sure he doesn't put any more forks in the toaster.”

I try to give out the result faster than usual since DA is having promotions for premium member subscription. That's why I try to give you the result sooner so you may use your points for it. Though it's not enough but I hope it can help some how .
With a lot of entries therefore it took me while to choose top 5. This time, so many good entries with great concepts. It's really hard for me to pick 5 only.
I don't pick the top 5 base on drawing skills only but also the concept of their entries. But there were more than 20 entries I want to pick as winners :C. But don't worry, we will have more challenges in future.
I am truly sorry for who don't make it, not because you are not good but because we only choose 5 here. As I usually said for challenge, it's not a contest, it likes a little 'push', a little motivation for you to draw (it's also a reason why the prize for top 5 is just little). If you don't make it this time but I believe you earn somet

Also, Solai-Tsukada wants to point out that the person in this photo is not Frank. Apparently it's a girl cosplaying as him. I've seen a lot of people submit drawings of this girl, thinking she's Frank, so just a heads-up.

The band whose bass player had a mental breakdown, and still returned to record the rest of an album?

Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)"There’s angst but it’s different. I think we’re rebelling now as a rock band. We’re trying to keep it pure, but we’re not playing victims anymore. We’ve realized that we’re one of the youngest bands at our size. So there’s a responsibility that comes with that, whether it’s to fans or to outside listeners who aren’t fans, to be the greatest American rock band. That was the goal. And it took a while to get there, but we’re just being the best My Chemical Romance that we can be."Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
“I write them wherever I may happen to be when I get hit with inspiration. A lot of times I just make notes of sentences. What I usually do is write paragraphs of free style, just really descriptive phrases and I’ll draw upon those phrases later. I try to get the sound before I get the lyrics.”

:iconestunt: Some thoughts from Matt (mattdanna)
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, the word "love" is in no short supply. Stores are trying to get you to buy everything from chocolates and jewelry to vacation getaways for that special someone in your life. As someone who's been notoriously single on Valentine's Day, the L word starts to sound like nails on chalkboard leading up to the days before February 14th. Nevertheless, I thought it would be neat to explore art depicting different types of love.
In Greek culture, there are several different words for "love": philía, storgē, agápe, and éros. The Greek language distinguishes the different ways "love" is used. Philía is the type of love and affection you feel with friends and community.
Fast lane to becoming a better artist.I often get this very question: How did you get this good this fast?Fast lane to becoming a better artist.3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Now as I consider myself not being as good as people tell me, even struggling quite often with being an artist in general.
I do know how to get better and how to reach it fast. I'm still growing as I go and it's the main thing that keeps me going.
You need to get into the right mindset and the rest will follow. With the rest I mean:
3. Positive energy.
4. The NEED to draw.
Seeing growth in your work gives you the courage to work harder. You know that feeling when you're just about done with an image
and feel like this image is better than your last one, that great feeling. Use it!
Do studies! Lots of them!! Make film shot studies, live object studies, master-painting studies. They will teach you a lot about composition, lighting, colors, shapes storytelling etc.
You will hardly notice that you are learning thing

Avoid getting ripped off by a client.As a freelancer most of your business takes place online, which makes it really easyAvoid getting ripped off by a client.1 week ago in Personal More Like This
for people to rip you off. How many times have we seen the following scenario's:
1- Someone offers a descent payment for your artwork but wants you to do an art-test first.
after the art-test you're being told you're not good enough. Later you find out that other people
got to do different art-test topics and also weren't good enough. The client clearly ripped people off to get free artwork.
2- Someone offers good money for your artwork. The sketch gets approved so you continue working. Right when it's done the total image suddenly becomes a great disappointment and the client ends up not paying you.
These were just 2 examples of situations that happen a lot to freelancers. There are many more like it.

FAN ART CONTEST - more prizes and first entries!The contestFAN ART CONTEST - more prizes and first entries!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Winter has always been a season which people either love or hate. No matter where we live we always have some strong emotions connected with it and a lot of them revolve around... snow!
Some love it, some hate it; some play with it creating snowmen, others do everything to get rid of it; some see it all year long and some can only dream about it.
Because of how many different emotions we connect with snow and how many uses it has it's a perfect theme for the promised fan art contest!
Your task is to create a fan art or fan fiction that will present your favourite character(s) interacting with snow.
Every entry should revolve around the "snow" theme. The more original you are, the better!
The work must be a Fan Art / Fan Fiction and it should be submitted into the Fan Art
Win a free copy of 256! (1 week remaining)EDIT - Just one week left! Here's a look at the prizes;Win a free copy of 256! (1 week remaining)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was thinking it might be cool to have an art contest
CONTEST - '255 Postcards Ago'
(I realize this might be difficult seeing as how no one knows
the story of 256 yet but I'll fill you in on the basics.)
As some of you have already guessed the 'creatures'
from 256 are Nicholas' imaginary friends. He doesn't
live with them (except Digit who is his favourite
cuddly toy but he can still go off on his own adventures),
in fact they are more like penpals he
communicates with via postcards, but occasionally
he sees them in real life and they go on random
adventures around town
(that may not make sense but just go with it XD).
I want you to draw at least one of the characters;
having an 'adventure'. It can be ANYWHERE, it can be
all of them together or just Ludo if you like and it doesn't
have to be limited to a seaside environment, but all I ask is
nothing 'graphic' or gross please
last night I was inspired."Last night I was inspired.last night I was inspired.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
It was a sad, cold, lonely night. Thoughts screaming, yelling at me. I literally wrote nonsense on the wall for hours, about beating hearts, fragility and failure. About skeletons that had no legs and hissing fangs that glared at me.
Once again my cruel best friend arrived, embracing me with its gleaming coldness. She was dressed in silver and scarlet; our favorite colors. She danced as I wrote and sang as I cried. And then I was suddenly left in the dark; lonely, hating her -hating them-, and crying.
Yet it was strange that what I only got to feel then, was inner peace."
"Anoche fui inspirada.
Era una triste noche, fría y solitaria. Pensamientos chillando, gritándome. Escribí cosas sin sentido en la pared durante horas, sobre corazones que laten, sobre fragilidad y fracaso. Sobre esqueletos sin piernas y colmillos siseantes que me mataban con la mirada.
Una vez más, mi cruel y mejor amiga llegó,

What program do you use?
Paint Tool Sai, Get it here or if that doesnt work, here
What size canvas do you work on?
I usually work on 2000x2000px, although I never use the whole thing, most drawings are cropped to roughly 1000x1000px in size. I recommend using a canvas bigger than what you want to draw!
What Tool do you use in SAI?
Here! I have no advanced settings, this is almost default. My stabiliser is on, any setting is fine as long as it's smooth!
May I use your artwork for my project?
Yes you can, Only, please let me know first.
May I use your art as an Icon?
Of course!! You don't need to ask.
Do you mind if I colour one of your sketches?
Go ahead, I rarely ever say no! Please show me too!!
