The Pitfalls of Speed PaintingI've been meaning to write about this for a while now, but recently a video popped on up Ctrl+Paint about the same topic and it encouraged me to finally talk about it. It's a practice that's been misconstrued and misunderstood for a while now, so I wanted to help people get a proper understanding on the subject.The Pitfalls of Speed Painting4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Speed painting has been something of a fad for 4 or 5 years now, even back when I was first starting digital work. Like many artists out there, I thought, "Sweet, I can do really cool work, really fast!" And like many artists out there, in the back of my head I was probably thinking, "This is easier than learning the normal way!"
Well, here's the main problem in regards to speed painting. Any of those really cool, realistic and well done speed paintings you see are done by professionals who have been painting for years and years. These a

There isn't much to the fuku, more of just make it creative. The wing emblem must be represented somewhere on your senshi. It can take any shape, form, and color as long as there is a visible wing emblem somewhere on the fuku. It can be a brooch design, a hair clip, a tattoo, or an actual pair of wings (or whatever else you might think of). As for the fuku itself, you can design it however you choose to. It would be cool that if your senshi comes from another planet, maybe their fuku resemble

And So The Story Begins...Long ago, in the dawning of the ages, Celestial Secret stood among the beginning of creation, as home of the angels. These angels were warriors, healers, defenders. They were created for the purpose of protecting the health, lives, and souls of another creation: humanity. They were the silent guardians, watching over the world as it turned and turned.And So The Story Begins...2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
But as the world grew, so did the darkness. It started in the hearts of humanity - as they experienced the worlds pleasures, they also found themselves experiencing life's woes. The darkness would warp them. Change them. The angels tried to keep it at bay, but some humans could not be saved. They fell too far from humanity, and soon their hearts would simply disappear into darkness. These humans would turn into demons, and their free will would disappear.
As the demons grew in number and power, the angels' first true foe appeared: the Shadows. And unbeknownst to humanity, this ignited the first true war, between the Shadows and the Angels
Founding of the AllianceA long, long time ago when the universe was still young, a war raged on between the army of Good and the army of Evil. Each army was lead by a powerful Princess who embodied all that was her army. For thousands of years, the two armies would battle and people would die and then be reborn to fight again, die then be reborn. The Princesses were pained by the loss of their people and decided to take the matters into their own hands, facing each other directly. They fought for many years and they found that their powers were balance; if one were to land a hit on the other, they would both sustain the same injuries.Founding of the Alliance6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Discovering that neither could be defeated without destroying themselves in the process, they laid down their weapons and smiled at each other, declaring peace between their armies. They gave their lives for this cause. Of the many warriors, some especially loyal champions too gave their lives for the cause of the Princesses. Their star seeds are the star seeds of what

i have seen in my life many artists who proclaimed they want to develop their skills, and kept bashing on everyone and everything on the way....and for some reason those guys never got anywhere...
here is why..
there is a value to different approaches, different styles. realism, manga , cartooney disney, my little pony, furries....don't waste your time tryint to bash any of the stuff you don't personally like
you are missing out, bigtime!
see there is a reason why that stuff is popular. and by that i mean on the visual side. so instead of flaming , trolling and bashing, try understanding the inner workings of it.
here are some specific examples
realism- it is a wonderfully complex base , reflects one's skill in capturing reality, but in it there are differences between photo referenced, real life work and no reference. ALL HAVE THEIR VALUE AND IMPORTANCE! from photos you can learn alot, gain analytic skills, develop an attention to

Odyssey. I can think of no better word to describe the journey that took place these past few months.
With the prologue, “They’re Mad, They Are,” I began work on a vessel that was not yet ready for sea. And on that holed ship, together we embarked over open waters towards an unknown destination.
What I then witnessed both touched and humbled me. You, the mighty crew of the HMS Ody

Prologue"The core of Chaos, the Chaos seed, and Guardian Chaos, are melted into the Cauldron. Now they have become too small to be found. But they might be born again. Because this is the place where stars, and possibilities, are born..."Prologue7 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's been 20 years since the girl with the golden hair heard those words. It was the day she defeated Chaos. The day she discovered the Galaxy Cauldron and the secret to all Star-Seeds; a day she would never forget because it changed her life forever. It changed everyone's lives. Not only the people of Earth, but every being in the Galaxy felt the effects of that day. A day, that, on Earth, is simply now known as "The Day the World went Dark."
The World easily fell back into its own rhythm. Lives returned to normal. Most people don't even remember it, or choose not to remember it. For the vast majority of Earthlings, it was simply a day they can't recall. Those who do, and even to them it's a vague recollection, are the ones who have some sort of tie

Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

So you want to be a CV...Sometimes I like to wander through the communityrelations group, and I always come across comments from people so willing to become volunteers, I constantly come across people who say "Applied for ___ gallery!", "I can't wait to be 18 to apply!", "I so want to be on the team!", there are some who list the complete CR roster in their personal profiles, who openly say in their tagline, signatures or devIDs "Hoping to be a CV one day", etc. This is specially evident in the The Community Relations Team journal, where the opening positions are listed.So you want to be a CV...4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To those people: take this journal just as a personal opinion and a friendly advice from a fellow community member, someone who loves the community and is willing to contribute and give back the way one can. This comes from my personal experience, shouldn't be taken as the whole Community Relations nor deviantArt's official stance.

Kepler Senshi are alien senshi from planets, not stars. These amazing senshi have unique traits and abilities that have caught the eye of our great Sloan Queen and have now been invited into the Messier Sisterhood.
Please welcome the Federation of Kepler Senshi!
When creating a Kepler Senshi for the Sisterhood:
*Is alien / non-human (should have few humanoid and be upright)*
*Must have adaptions to their planet (technology and physical adaption)*
Must have some kind of planet-specific distinguishable feature (jewelry, markings, biology, etc)
Fuku must include a brooch somewhere and some kind of sailor collar (be creative)
Has a rhombus somewhere on their brooch to mark their inclusion in the Federation of Kepler Senshi
*Note* Please consider the unique needs of your planet when designing your senshi. Is your planet cold? Is it high gravity? Is it close to it's star? How migh
