Need faces?We've already had "Need references?" and "Need textures?", time for something else. This actually is about references again, but about these more specified ones. Emotions. How many times have you wondered why is that the faces you draw look as empty as dead? Depicting moods can be a very hard task. Try sketching yourself (yes, a mirror would be a nice thing to have in this case), pull faces at diffrent angles, change light. And take a look at these below.

myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.

Starting off, we have my all time favorites!
Simplifying the figure: This is my very favorite anatomy deviation and I still come back to it when I need to amp myself up for drawing some anatomies. It’s just so simplified yet still accurate! It makes breaking down the body into simple shapes easier to understand. When I start working out a person’s anatomy, this is what they’ll look like, because details get in the way at that point and structure and form are what’s important to get down.

I thought this might be interesting...
Keeping your head down at your table - I see rows of people with their heads down drawing instead of looking up and engaging the people walking by. (What? are we boring you?) Offer to give a custom drawing to someone AFTER they’ve bought something.
Not being able to describe your book or product - If you can’t describe your book in one sentence, you’re doing it wrong. If you are uncomfortable describing your work, find someone who isn’t and bring them (If you hate people, go back to your cave and sell your stuff online)

A reference guide on bookbinding typesA reference guide on bookbinding typesA reference guide on bookbinding types1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
When I tell people I'm a bookbinder they often think I make only one type of book; the library kind. That, however, is only one of the many ways an artist can create a book. For me, it's a fun challenge to pick the right binding style to go with the purpose of the book. Whether it is a novel that needs to look really classy or medieval, a sketchbook for a graphic novelist or a paper about connections that lets me show the binding. In this article I'm going to tell you a little bit about all the types of bookbinding that I know. I'm not going into details but, if possible, I will link to images and tutorials that do.
If you're here for inspiration: this guide is pretty long. I recommend scrolling through the images first!
To make a start...
The different ways of binding books can be broken down into two general groups: adhesive bindings and non-adhesive bindings. Adhesive b

I'm working on a fantasy comic project titled Onirik.
So, I'd like to team up with a talented colorist to bring the story to life.
You can already find some Onirik's material here: fav.me/d5itju1 , fav.me/d5h2cgn , fav.me/d5gzmbw
There is no official deadlines. I'm finishing my submission file and I just wanted to let the chance to a colorist here before I submit it in Black and white.
There's no money deal for the moment.
But if you want to make part of the Onirik adventure, it's your chance now.

So I decided to make a list with art websites that offer tutorials, advice, or other content that inspired me.

It's time to take care of yourselves, lil monta!So if you're like me and draw for around 8 hours a day, you might start to feel a certain tension to your leading hand at the end of the day. So to prevent tendinitis or other wrist/fingers injuries from working so much, let's watch that video together and practice wrists and fingers stretching for a better life~It's time to take care of yourselves, lil monta!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This is really helpful and only take two minutes. I recommend stretching before starting to draw, and doing some breaks when you're doing a big masterpiece that take you a long time to make (but that's just lil ol' me, you're not forced to do as I say UvU).
Take care of yourselves, lil monsta! I'm back to France, and back to work~
Providing constructive criticism to group members*Please note that Im writing this from my personal experience. I did not copy this text from somewhere; I wrote this by myself to share my knowledge and advice with those who need it. I might have made a mistake somewhere or missed something, but Im still learning, like most of us.Providing constructive criticism to group members5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Why is giving constructive criticism in a group so important, you ask?
Well, the reason for giving critiques in general is quite obvious to help other artists improve, to share your opinion, to give your input on how you perceive ones work. Why would you want to do that? Because youre nice and polite person that wants to help others, of course.
With this growing number of groups on dA, I noticed that not a lot of group administrators are giving proper feedback. Most of us are just amateurs, trying to learn more about the kind of art were interested in.
Not all of us have premiums memberships, but why couldnt regular members give their opinion anyway? The grou

Rat Anatomy Compilation.Rats are very fascinating little creatures. They have small hands like humans, minus the thumbs. They are intelligent and social, and each rat has a unique personality. They can also easily stand on their hind legs, making them an easy transition to an anthropomorphic form for stories and art.Rat Anatomy Compilation.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, though, they are damn difficult to draw, and there are precious few resources for those wishing to delve into their anatomical structure (certainly me included). So I will be collecting references, both photos and drawings, that I think might be helpful to someone looking to draw my charming friend Rattus norvegicus (and perhaps some of his closest family members). I will probably add to this from time to time as I find new resources, so please feel free to suggest things that you think might be useful!
