Cultivating Your Drawing SkillsI believe drawing skills are never innate: when someone is a natural, what they really have are remarkable observational skills and the ability to apply them in their case, through drawing (it could just as well have been espionage ). Drawing skills can be cultivated by anyone able to use their minds and hands. There are basically only two approaches to do this: theory (+practice) and observation (+studies).Cultivating Your Drawing Skills8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Theory is a structured, organised approach, learning from someone more experienced who's laid it all out for us in a course, book or tutorial.
Observation is an organic, unpredictable approach, learning directly from the real world around us and gradually deriving principles from it.
Alone, they are both incomplete; trying to work with only one of them would be like trying to walk with one foot. Studying lays down a solid foundation, which remains abstract and limited until observation brings it to life with details and real-life application

FrUk Lemon (England POV)I couldn't believe that this was actually happening to me. France was lightly caressing my face, his gentle touch sending chills through body. My lips trembled as I looked up at his sparkling blue eyes, and I realize how much I love him this began with him asking me why I hate him so much. I had explained to him that I could never hate him, and that I only act the way I do because I care about him. Then he had kissed me softly. Now here we are, his hands holding my face, with each soft touch, feelings of desire coursed through my body. France smiled at me, leaning forward and kissing me again. His tongue poked at my lips, begging to enter my mouth. I allowed his tongue to dance erotically across my own tongue, his hot saliva filling my mouth as a muffled moan escaped my enclosed lips. He held my waist close as he bit my lower lip. I closed my eyes as waves of passion washed over me. He pushed down on my chest, pushing me onto my bed. France brought his head lower, suckling and kissingFrUk Lemon (England POV)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Happy New YearHello there,Happy New Year3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I hope all of you got well in the new year! I had a nice start, too, also the weeks seams to fly. 2014 was a good year for me. I began working for three publishers and learned a lot about deadlins, mindreading, patience and internet problems and beeing every time at the search for the right stock, because when you search something you find truly something, which will be great for a other job..
Here are some of my favorite covers I made for publisher:
Also I could work for some selfpublisher, which is always great and inspiring!
Namely Pippa Dacosta (http://www.pippadacosta.com/) is a wonderful person and I love reading her books.
This year I was able to illustrate her whole veil series, which made me very proud:
Also I was able to made the second book for Patricia St

A Discussion On Backgrounds In PaintingsA Discussion On Backgrounds In Paintings2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Traditional Art Week
Background is called the matrix of a painting. Something that holds the foreground or main subject to our focus. Even though, we often neglect this stepping stone. And this element should be discussed separately because this the principle step that even comes before the composition sometimes. If you have nothing to hold it, what fate becomes of your precious creation?
Before we analyze the elements of a background, we must understand what is background actually.
Background is not a solid object or patch of colour which you must put behind your painting to support it. No. Background is the space that surrounds your painting. It is the only way with which your painting relates to the surrounding at the very first place. It is where your sight is tricked into distance.
While we are talking about backgrounds, we should in

Important changes in commission policy PLEASE READImportant changes in commission policy PLEASE READ10 months ago in Personal More Like This
This annoys me as much as you, but this is forced on me rather than chosen, so let's overcome these obstacles together, shall we?
The changes are as follows:
The prices are going to be increased slightly in order to fit better to my local tax law. I really don't want to get you into details of that. Check out the current price list:
First time you place an order you will have to sign "Contract to perform a specific work" with me. This includes sharing personal data with me (but you'll get mine in exchange...) and also you'll have to send me a scan of a signed page. Photo will do as well.
This is completely normal among freelancers, imagine you are treated like a company ordering art assets from me. I need a paper for that.
All the personal data is completely safe with me, as I don't have any interest in sharing it. Still, it's required.
I need this only once. If you or

I am open to MLPFIM-style requests - they are free though I have no problem if you want to talk about any type of compensation (art trade, points, etc.) as well. (I will generalize prioritize those with compensation higher than others)
Example of past OC requests:
I can also do backgrounds and other more complex works like groups of three or more, or character reference sheets, but I prefer to only do these as commissions than requests due to time involved:

10 year art progress!Cleaning up folders means unlocking the various velocities of horror from the past. Let's take a trip down memory lane shall we?10 year art progress!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
And I feel like I've made no progress at all haha.
So the oldest work I've found was from 2004. It's 2014. It has been 10 years. So I've decided to compile my journey of 10 years! 10 freaking years! Good God am I a fossil or what? I'll walk you guys through what I can remember from each year.
2004 - It's not really the start of my drawing days. I've been drawings since I was 2 according to my mom. Is that even logical? I thought babies only started to walk at 2. So as you can see. I suck. But this was the start of my marker obsession.
2005 - I still suck really.
2006 - There were some major changes here I believe. This was my first year of art college and so that sort of helped with my proportions and color choices. I still sucked though.
2007 - I think many who have known me during this time might've agreed. This was one of

Pricing is subject to change based on what you're asking for, but this is a general guideline
Chibi, pony, or cutie mark: 30
Character stamp: 40
Bundle of Stamp & Avatar
If you would like a character stamp, I will add the matching avatar for an extra 10 points,
since I will have already created the image in the stamp anyway! But if the stamp and avatar are unrelated, I will have to use separate pricing, since it will be two different projects
