Awkward PosesI'm planning on doing a stock-photo-shoot to create references for some of DA's most notorious awkward poses.Awkward Poses2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There will be classic "hands behind back" and "am I a ballerina or drunk?" shots of course, but I'd like some help finding direct references to base my references off of. Yes, I'll be using drawings as references to create stock-photos for references for drawings. It's derpception.
There's plenty of drawings with awkward poses out there, and I've seen a lot, but that's not enough. I need help finding the "best of the best" to pose after.
So, please, as you navigate the bowels of the art world (a.k.a. DeviantArt), link back those strange poses here. I can never see too many.
Also, the photo-shoot will be recorded, so you'll get to see me in action, falling on my face, trying to replicate drawings. Isn't that exciting?
Artist Feature Series IXThis week I am featuring one of my personal favorite artist, :icongitoku: he's work is amazing and can be lined up with some of his personal favorites like : Inoue Takahiko, Michaelangelo, Ikegami Ryouichi, and Shinkawa Youji. Living peacefully in Japan, Gitoku's art are captivating and almost surreal but if you stare at it long enough it jumps at you. So please take a gander at these awesome arts that is very much worthy of a feature:Artist Feature Series IX2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Hey guys! I'm back with another book! This time it's one that's probably much more known. I personally think that this is one of the best Jump Artbooks because Riichiro Inagaki's marker skills are INSANE. tried to include some close ups on some of the really awesome marker stuff this time around. Also, after all the images there is an image and list of my other art books. Please let me know what other books you'd like to see inside C:

Hey what's up guys! Its been a while but I'm back to stay!
There was a good reason for my absence...
As some of you who are following me on facebook might know, my girlfriend and I were expecting and my daughter was born a few weeks ago. This has been the single best moment of my life so far and we've been very very lucky everything has gone so perfect.
With all of that going on, painting was the last thing on my mind but now that I've settled into this new life as a dad, the urge is coming back and I'm going to be painting a LOT more.
I'm going to start a series of tutorials on Youtube where I'll explain everything character related from a beginner's level up to more advanced stuff. This will be a weekly thing and I'll be releasing the first one this week.
What I've been doing so far are just timelapses of regular paintings and while I'll still make these, my goal with the tutorial series is to target ce
Thoughts on Art from SizerI wrote this yesterday to a young artist who was worried about measuring up at the Whitechapel art forums, and it sounded like I kind of knew what I was talking about, so I thought I'd share it here:Thoughts on Art from Sizer1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"Overall, it goes back to one of Warren's old mainstays for here; "There is no crying in Whitechapel", which means just bring your best stuff, be honest and committed to it, and don't whine.
All of us have felt "outclassed" by something here, and complaining about it gets boring, so better to put your energy into getting your game up to the level you wish it to be. It took me a few years to really hit a level I felt I could even feel good about here with the possibility of someone like Mike Weiringo showing up and owning the entire thread.
The "No piss-takes" rule is also in the same vein; we're all here to see good stuff, so bringing something that is obviously half-assed or was slapped together with little thought is a piss-take, and it wastes both our (the viewers) and your time. Again,
Manga Studio copying to other pagesJust a little FYI for Manga Studio users in case you have the same problem I did and get stumped:Manga Studio copying to other pages2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had several pages I created before, but now I wanted to change the order of the panels and spread them out more. So I needed to move the layers to a different page file.
In Photoshop you can just drag a layer into a different document and it copies it. But MS will not drag anything across pages.
I searched the net and help files but nothing answered my question.
I almost resorted to copy/pasting layers one by one, but then something occurred to me to try:
In your "layers" palette, select the panel folder you want to move. "Select All" on the page, and then go to "Edit" and "Copy". You can tell it's working when it blinkers a bit (especially if you use lots of layers like me). Then it will create a copied folder in your "layers" palette. You can then go to your other separate page file, hit "Paste", and it will paste your copied panel folder right in, layers, tones, text balloons and all!

The Harsh Realities of the "Miracle of Birth"

Many parents like to allow their children experience the “miracle of birth” first hand by allowing their dog, cat, rabbit or other pet to mate and give birth to a litter. While for some it can be an amazing and unforgettable experience, for the pets already alive in shelters awaiting a new home, to them it isn’t so much. If

Remember in middle school, when they taught you how to properly write a letter? Maybe... I don't think they do, or need to do, that anymore... but proper etiquette is important!
For example, suppose you want to contact an artist you admire, or anyone at all! Consider your tone and do your research before acting a fool up in here!
I love your art, (its sexy! but you know that), and want commission you someday! perhaps you could answer a few questions of mine if you have time!
Perfectly acceptable! Coherent. Intelligent. Courteous. Un-imposing. Unassuming. Informed. Makes a request for information, not assumptions or perceived favors. This was an ACTUAL note I got. It even lead to him getting a discount on a commission.
Here's a BAD note...
I am a big fan of your work, I hop
