Fan Art Friday: STAR WARS VII The Force Awakens
Episode VII Stormtrooper v03 by juan7fernandez
It seems the Force has truly Awoken, at least it has here on DeviantArt.
It has been one week since the teaser trailer for the first of the Disney owned Star Wars movies was released. Twitter and Facebook nearly broke under the deluge of postings of the trailer and frame by frame commentary of it. Each commentator hoping to spot something everyone else had missed.
Meanwhile on the far distant planet of

The Horrors of ACTA (Updated 1-27)Updates are at the bottom.The Horrors of ACTA (Updated 1-27)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well we might have nipped SOPA and PIPA in the buns for now (remain vigilante, they may resurface) but ACTA is proving to be just as scary..
First off, I am not a lawyer or a student of the law. I have done several hours of research and these are the conclusions I've reached, they may not be 100% accurate.
What is ACTA and why should we fight it?
Here's some Youtube Videos
And a Wiki link for those of you patient enough to do a bit of reading
One of the scarier aspects of ACTA is IPs will be legally required to examine every byte of information you transfer over the internet to make sure it contains no copyrighted, or otherwise illegal, data... This includes things such as emails, IMs, all internet activity, and even your chat among other gamers when playing your favorite MMO or online game of any sorts. &

The Value of CriticismEvery artist, on some level, loves fanfare. Who doesn't? But most artists resist criticism. I've been guilty of it in the past myself. But for the most part, after I suck up my pride, I use it.The Value of Criticism2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Any time you put your work out there [ in a comic book or on the web or in a gallery ], you're up for criticism. Sometimes the critiques aren't necessarily valid. They're coming from fans or, in a lot of cases, keyboard warriors that just want to be negative for the sake of being negative. But in almost all cases, there's something to be learned by criticism.
My wife is a perfect example. She's not an artist, which is my usual go to excuse when debating the merits of those that might offer critiques of my work that I disagree with. My wife, can't draw. But she knows when a nose is off. Or if the lighting looks "weird". Or if an arm doesn't look right. Or if a drawing is just sorta dead. She has a good eye.&
Digital art: good to know/tutorials PART_1Hey, hey cupcakes!Digital art: good to know/tutorials PART_12 years ago in Art Features More Like This
PART_2 ! General
So... this is the first part in featuring some extremely useful tutorials which can be found on DA (and some from off-site as well). This one isn't limited on digital art only, but the rest will be. I wanted to post everything in one journal, but theres 200 thumbnail limit, sooo yeah I decided to divide everything in following categories: sketching/referencing/anatomy etc, General, blending, steps, color, perspective/Composition/value, Walkthrough, nose, hair, skin, photoshop/wacom, brushes, eyes, lips, textures, ears, fabric/clothes, environment, misc (how to paint water, fire, rocks, rain, clouds, pearls etc. ). This one is about Sketching/referencing/anatomy etc.. In every journal I will also include some interesting videos that I think you should check out And, if you know about some tutorials that can be helpful to other artists, note me, thank you :heart
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!

Useless Public Service AnnouncementI was just on a very popular artist's page, and when I started reading through the first few comments left for them, I wasn't surprised when all of it was stuff saying how amazing the artist's stuff is... It was just your run-of-the-mill collection of comments saying stuff like "I really love your art" and "I wish I was just like you"; but one comment in particular kind of struck out at me:Useless Public Service Announcement3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"A long time ago I discovered your art. It was so beautifully rendered and imagined I fell in love. Now this new work you're creating is even more lovely. The ideas and creations you come up with are otherworldly and very beautiful. It's almost romantic in its quality. I never post these kinds of things but I felt compelled to let you know that I'm a fan and I encourage you to keep creating your inspiring art. And, of course, thank you for making this world more interesting."
I know what you're thinking. Wow, what a beautifully written comment, I wish I could get something that nice on my pag

I've been hired by an actual company to do actual art. With a contract and everything. It's not permanent, but there is legal paperwork ... so that has to mean something. One of these legal papers means none of the finished art, none of the sketches, and none of the any part of it will be here. But that's pretty standard.
I'm going to let myself be excited about this. I get to work with the husband, which I always love, and the guy I'm working for is great. Not only does he have a ton of interesting concepts and thoughts running about in his head, but he has this idea that I really *really* like.
He doesn't want objectified, unrealistic women with exaggerated anatomy and bikini-armor -which is paradise to my artistic sensibilities. Not just that, but he was able to bring up the topic, without blinking and without apology, in front of a woman. It actually took a while for that bit of conversation to sink in.
I never, in my lifetime, thought I'd hear something l

So I'm listening to a fantastic podcast called The History of England by David Crowther, which talks about said history from the Anglo Saxons and all the way through to the Royal dynasties. I implore you to have a listen to it if you can its absolutely fascinating to listen to when working. I'm listening to it through itunes but I'm sure he'll have links on his website, which is full of insightful references to what he talks about in the show, you can check it out here: http://historyofengland.typepad.com/blog/

Anyway, I was listening to an episode about the relationship between Henry II and Thomas Becket,The Archbishop of Canterbury who was Canonised after being murdered at his altar after a misunderstanding in which four Knights mistook the King's meaning when he mentioned he wished he could be rid of him. And after what Mr. Crowther enlightened me to, I don't blame him. He was a bit
