These are widgets on your profile that you can put anything you want in. When you click on [Edit Page] you can choose the "Custom" option.

This is where you get to show off your personality a bit- it can be really fun trying out different background colours and pictures.

Best video resources for digital artistsLearning the theory without any practice is incredibly pointless when it comes to art. No book, no lecture and no video will ever teach you how to paint if you won't find the time for creating something yourself.Best video resources for digital artists2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
On the other hand, doing everything alone and without any instructions is the longest and hardest way of achieving anything. What's worse it doesn't guarantee you success.
Through the last couple of years I've been painting, I've learned that the best way for me to learn to paint is to copy techniques of people who know what they're doing. There's no better way doing it than watching videos with commentaries. That's why today I thought I'd share with you some great lectures, tutorials and demos I've found on youtube. Below you'll find a list of the best YT channels and samples of videos. Go and subscribe for more great vids!

Muchos habrán escuchado hablar de este tema o se preguntaran para qué sirve. Otros querrán saber cómo se hacen y dónde se estudian temas como estos?

“Un story board es una secuencia de ilustraciones que tiene por objetivo servir al DIRECTOR como guía para la realización de cualquier propuesta audiovisual. “
El campo es extenso porque se aplican a película de acción en vivo, publicidad, animación 2D y 3D, juegos de ordenador, páginas web, videos institucionales, planificación de eventos, comerciales para televisión, teatro y la lista continúa.
Las técnicas de storyboard, apuntan a la organización narrativa y depende de si es para publicidad o para una propuesta de autor. En el campo de la publicidad, donde se intenta vender un producto, sirve para que el director
Canvas sizes - inches and dpi and pixelsThis is a sort of guide on canvas sizes, inches, dpi and pixel x pixels.Canvas sizes - inches and dpi and pixels2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
when it came to canvas sizes, I always kind of assumed that inches belonged with dpi and pixels were just pixels and that everyone knew that; but i read a whole bunch of comments on a tumblr blog where someone asked about canvas sizes, and SO MANY people were replying with things such as, "4000x4000 px at 300 dpi" or "2000x2000 px at 200dpi".
and I guess not everyone quite understands what dpi's really used for xD.
DPI = Dots per Inch. It means how many dots will be printed per inch.
DPI is actually used for printing purposes. It shows the printer how much pixels to print per inch, literally. A common printer (at home or even at a lot of printing stores) at best prints at 150dpi most of the time actually; there are some super duper great printers that can print REALLY fine that can go up to ...apparently a lot more xD; #dpi, so that's why everyone usually suggests saving your project at 300dpi; most printers are f
SAI pressure sensitivity SOLUTION!!! Hey! Two years on I'm gonna make an edit. Paint tool SAI does not require purchase. The trial is good, too. However, if you've found a way to download it for free, I cannot assure you it'll work, hence me emphasising on the SAI MUST BE BOUGHT stuff. lol XDSAI pressure sensitivity SOLUTION!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes you dig too deep. SAI is sometimes a very complicating and annoying son of an apple, but maybe your looking too far into it. As suggested some users said, "Unplugging my tablet, restarting my computer and re-plugging my tablet works every time!" just don't forget to save.
If that doesn't work, you truly are in a shazaam and you're probably gonna have to do this stuffs
Good luck :3
Now, there has been a lot of problems over this I'm gonna tell you what to do with some handy screenshots.
It gets really annoying when you lose pressure sensitivity and you're in the middle of drawing and that is because sometimes SAI can lose you're settings, after you have been told to remove all

Sans serif — Roman
In this article/tutorial I will show you how to design a typeface. I will cover the basics and show you how to design advanced letters as well. There is so much I can talk about though, so if people like this article I might expand on this with future articles and get more into detail. I will only cover the design though, so you will have to research how to do the spacing and programming and turn your typeface into a usable font—or wait until I might do an article on that as well, but I don’t have such an article planned anytime soon.
What will we design?
I will first show you how to design some basic letters for a geometric sans typeface like Futura, because it utilizes geometric shapes, which is always my starting point for every typeface regardless of style. O
Groups: How to Set Your Membership/Join RequestsThe new Groups system is great, isnt it? Once you get a handle on all of the extra settings, the system makes it easier than ever to run your own communities and clubs. But getting the hang of all those settings does take a while. The main issue that Ive seen is in regards to the join requests.Groups: How to Set Your Membership/Join Requests5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When you first start a group, or convert your club, the request to join option comes with the default setting of being disabled, or closed (presumably to give the founder time to set everything up before accepting members). But when you look at your groups main page, the join our group button is right there, as if requests are open (dA should consider changing this at some point).
Now, a groups founder isnt going to request to join their own group; theyll just see the join button on the main page, and assume that anyone can click on it and request to join. It wont be until some

EVEN MOAR SKIN SWATCHES!
The best way to improve is to draw from real life. That's the best way to learn. If you don't know how to draw a certain angle of a hand or an arm, you shouldn't fudge it, you should always look it up and figure out how to draw it right. Hiding the hands behind the body is a no-no, people! The proof of bsing is easy to see: http://neofox.deviantart.com/journal/ART-knowledge-is-power-282518336

- Alt+spacebar+dragging the cursor will rotate your canvas.
- Hold the spacebar and drag your cursor to move around the canvas
- Hold Ctrl+Alt, and you can change your brush size without having to go back to the brush panel
- If you go to View > New (It's on the top menu) and you can have another instance of your file open (Example)
- If you click a layer thumbnail and hold Shift, and it will select everything on that layer.
- Layer clipping! Color in all your bases, and then keep all the messy shading on a separate layer and click the "clipping group" option, and it will all neatly erase it self outside the lines
- Press H to flip your image. This makes it easier to weed out mistakes.
- It makes your life a lot easier if you organize your layers into folders!!!
For actual painting tips
- Try to keep shading subtle! Don't go

However if you are going to do this dA takes a part of the money you earn. Around 20 Points on Every 80 points [I think]
Which makes you earn only 60 points even if you sell for 80.
That´s why I suggest you think that 1 Dollar = 100 points
Instead of 80, that way you won´t lose anything on it. *w* ~

and this is what I tell them.
Find out for yourself what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions.
Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of bookcovers, or card games.
Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must find the best work on the market in those fields.
Find out what makes the best art of your favorite field the best art. What do they paint? How do they paint it? With knowing this you can find out about the things you need to study.
The most basic study aims are the following:
What forms of light art there? And how does it influence things?

How do you paint shapes? How do you light them the right way?

Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?

Also this is enough material to last you for, literally, years, so get one at a time, study it in detail, then once you're thoroughly finished move on to the next one. Reading a book or watching a dvd doesn't make you better.
