Design CONTEST!Guys, I'm holding a contest for anyone who wants to enter!Design CONTEST!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The deadline is 30 November 2012. You have more than 2 mounths!
As the title says, it's a design contest
Here all the info
-Entries: how many you want.
-You can use a lineart.
-I'd prefer if you don't use any wolf/fox maker.
I really like light and dark brown, grey, black and white. I'd love to see a white wolf (not completely white, but with something grey, or brown...the important thing is that its colors remind snow and ice), and a black one.
Of course, not just those two, but also brown (I love them!), grey and colorful wolves and foxes. Yeah, also foxes!
I love natural design, so please no green or blue!
As you can see in my gallery, my characters have semi-simple designs: I don't really like strips and spots, 'cause they don't look realistic on a wolf. For foxes, spots are ok.
I'm searching something new, an unique design. Try to

How To Make Photoshop Painting BrushesA guide to making smooth painting brushes and painting effects using your own custom made brushes and smudge tool.How To Make Photoshop Painting Brushes3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First open the Brush panel/Brush editor. If you don't know, it's the icon that looks like paint and pens in a container or go to window and enable brush.
When it's open either turn on or off shape dinamics. This makes the ends pressure sensitive from thin to thick. I like to toggle it on and off when I paint or make double brushes, one with and one with out and save it to my collection. Then turn spacing all the way to zero. You'll notice that the brush goes from spotty messy to super smooth. This is also what you can do to make a flawlessly smooth inking brush in photoshop.
Tick Transfer, this will make it very sensitve opacity wise. Kind of like paint tool SAI's marker tool. With the spacing set to zero you can really see how smooth it is now. But if you like the spacing how it is then of course leave it how it is on default. With smoo
Why I Think Your SFM Hate-Art Isn't HelpingI'm gonna rant for a bit, and I've ranted about this before - MANY times before, for those who have followed my Tumblr or who have looked at my Femclass pictures a fair bit. The main tangent of this will be Femclasses and Original Characters/OC's, but this can be applied for other tropes that may be overused (and I will reinforce that later). I didn't want to have to do this, but I've been provoked lately, and I feel like words would do some good other than my constant efforts to make - objectively - unique SFM crap involving Femclass models or any models in general.Why I Think Your SFM Hate-Art Isn't Helping1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We'll start with Fempyro. I know a lot of people are pissed off with how oversexualized Fempyro might be, or how people are making her oversexualized. The concept of the Buff Manpyro, which me and Pybun were both responsible for, was a parody of this. But what pisses me off more than that is people who are pissed off at the Fempyro because they think that's all she can be. Lately, I've been seeing way too many satire and p
Manga/Anime Tutorial Hub: Drawing AnimeSo what's this all about? A while back I decided that it would be best to create a place where tutorials that are vital to Manga/Anime artists to have a home, an easy place to reach if they felt that they ever needed it. One by one articles featuring tutorials based off of specific trades and mediums will be posted, and in the end a master article that'll unite them all together. The hope is to have as much as possible in one easy to reach place. This time around its Drawing Anime's turn.Manga/Anime Tutorial Hub: Drawing Anime4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hello everyone, Kita-Angel here today again! I seem to be pretty active recently huh?
Before I finish and post some of the tutorials and guides I have been working on, I wanted to address some issues I have noticed, mostly the one where people can't seem to find tutorials and guides on anatomy, men and women, hair, faces, etc.
I honestly admit I was confused that there were so many requests for tutorials like this, and well, I can honestly admit those are probably dead last on the list of tutorials I will be making for the simple reason that they exist already.
So, what did I do and why is this journal here? I have some awesome stuff to show you!
I FOUND STUFF!
That's right, after about an hour of research on deviantART, looking things up, refining what category I was searching in just to be sure I was in the right section of deviantART, I found a whoooooole bunch of stuff. I read through them too

Photomanipulation walkthroughStep 1: Idea (message, composition)Photomanipulation walkthrough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You decided that you want to make a photomanipulation. But what to make? There are so many photomanipulations already out there and mostly with the same theme. So you decide you don't just want to stick a pretty girl onto a beautiful background. No you want to be original and have your manipulation portray a message everyone can relate to.
Think of things that are important to you, that lay close to your heart. They can be emotions (love, hate, sadness, anger) or experiences, hobbies (art, sports etc), things you are struggling with. Or they can be global themes like (beauty, money, economy, eating disorders, war, relationships etc.)
Of course if you choose to portray something as love there are many ways to do so. Do you want it to be a surreal depiction of love, or dark, fantasy, sci-fi, conceptual, humourous... your choice will of course decide the whole 'feel' of the image.
So choose wisely as they say.
Now that you have your theme you nee

It's very important to understand how manga heads and faces work. It's also very important to understand the differences between realism and manga faces/heads. You'll see in this guide that manga and human faces/heads differ and also relate to one another! This guide will go into detail aboutFront View of full face and headSide View of face and headThe study of eyesThe study of noseThe study of lipsI hope you enjoy this guide
THE FRONT VIEW OF THE FULL FACE
As you can see by this diagram, the human head has more of a rounder oval egg shape than the manga face, which has more of an upside-down, sharper, water drop shape. Manga eyes are based off of the human eye, however, the manga eyes are bigger and fuller than the human eyes. The manga eyes have bi
