More about Blooms !!!As you have noticed I got some Blooms going recently and they become very very popular So it happens I'm in a spring mood and feel like being showered with flowers - time to shed the heavy skin clothing into light and fragrant. Got amazing comments on the blooms as well - from dreamy, in my dreams full of magic to I wish they grew in my garden, can you make some prints and even could you make the Blooms into 3d-sculpturesMore about Blooms !!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
All ideas and suggestions are very welcome - on short time notice I did added some prints & also a brand new calendar (with Blooms only). You can always add it to your wish list (so you don't forget the blooms when Christmas comes) or you can get it even right now, still 10 solid months left, and afterwards you can get the singular month pages to use as prints (I do that - good price for 12 artworks).

Did YOU Know that you can use the < font > tag in various custom boxes AND journals?
Well, yes you can! No Premium Membership REQUIRED!
To prove my point, below!
When you're ready to move on, mouse over the "The Tag" section.
Did you enjoy the awesome presentation of the "Test." text above? Here's the source code to that:
<font face="Droid Sans" size="7">Test.</font><font face="Arial" size="3">Test.</font><font face="Tahoma" size="1">Test.</font><font face="Oswald, Droid Sans, Arial" size="5">Test.</font><font face="Brainly, Nunito, Testt, Times New Roman" size="4">Test.</font><font face="Helskini, Klavika, FF Meta, Segoe UI, Tahoma" size="7"><b>LOL!<b></font>
What goes into that is <font> tag is basically the "size" and "face" subtags! If you need more expiation or info, move on below!

Is it better to possess a thing of beauty, or to experience the ultimate consummation of oneness with that beautiful thing by actually consuming it... and being left only with the memory of its beauty? Leave it up to our deviantARTists to think of a way to have it both ways – but left over as a feast for the eyes, preserved eternally on the digital planes of deviantART.

Makes me wonder.I, as a young artist, always want to get to know other artists, especially those of my age. This, somehow, proves more and more difficult.Makes me wonder.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
One should have thought that my generation is caught especially with the media, like in most other matters. However, this is not the case. Of course, there are plenty of digital artists, photographers and whatever else there is imaginable working with computers. There is only one phenomenon that's even bigger: MANGA.
What is it about those big-detail comics from a small-size country (that I personally admire pretty much) that makes the teenage world go crazy? I mean, I wouldn't say that I don't enjoy manga, actually, the opposite is the case. The only thing I'm lacking with many, many mangas is... good storyline. Detailed, comprehensible characters. Originality. Basically, all the stuff the writing part should add.
There are enormous numbers of amazingly talented pencil artists around here, I'd never ever doubt that. It only makes me wonder what hap

Step by Step : My Pixel BasicsStep by Step : My Pixel Basics2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I've had people from time to time ask me how I pixel, and I've never really been sure how to explain. It hasn't been until the past few years that i've really thought too much about what I was doing beyond experimenting and learning new things. I think I've rounded out some basic guidelines I usually follow and a friend wanted some advice so I decided to attempt some sort of explanation
Below are some step by step images and commentary. Please note that there is no one right way to create a piece of art. This Step by Step is meant only to impart some understanding of how I do things . In Pixel art alone there are many many 'styles'. I encourage anyone reading to look up more than one tutorial and seek critique if trying to learn their own pixel style.
Please excuse any spelling mistakes, and take note that I use Photoshop 7.0, but the same principals sh
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 techniques4 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.

It's a great idea in theory but there has also been a pretty noticeable backlash.
The first topic is whether or not you could even make money creating fan art of well known characters? Sakimi Chan is making a great deal of money doing mostly fanart creations and many have wondered how is this even legal? Isn't she making money off of a copyrighted character? There is a lot of gray area that is involved with this. The second topic is in regards to the "quality slip" or what many believe to be a shift in subject matter, mainly doing large breasts etc. This morning in particular I was reading the comments on Zeronis' Tifa piece and there is a divide in this idea of
