"To raise money for charity, we're making an Artbook in which artists will be given the chance to draw a page (or double page) each. All profits raised will go directly to the RedKite, a foundation that works closely with children living with cancer, helping families financially in these tough times."
Ethereal-artbook is currently holding a contest where winning entries will be published in the artbook and will receive a free copy!
There will be four winners, each winner judged separately from the four categories available; green, blue, yellow and red

Premium Content and how I feel about making moneyHalloPremium Content and how I feel about making money2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's a new feature called premium content that allows users to make file downloads available for a charge. This seems to be something with a vast range of different possibilities that range from quite nice to to quite lame. Of course we are all always against commercialization and sell-outs and everything and don't want things to change but there are some interesting options here.
Obviously everyone is going to know whether or not this is something he or she could use and how much sense it's going to make for what you do specifically but there's two points I want to adress.
I always thought it was lame when people sell stuff like brushes or psd files. This is probably just my personal opinion and many will certainly disagree for valid reasons, but I think, if you make some brushes, and you ask money for something as tiny as that, you are lame. Sorry. Actually, the point here is not that it will kill someone to pay like one buck for something tiny, it's just that it change

Hello again! It's been 3 months since our previous seasonal feature and it's time for a next one, the third one. As previously, I'm picking deviations which have below 300 favourites, but it's still really hard - I'd feature all of them if it didn't take so much space. If you liked some of the works here especially, don't hesitate to suggest it for a Daily Deviation, here you may find all the tips how to do it.

Autumn Alliance Contest!All right, boys and girls, and variations thereof (woo Doctor Who reference.......note to self: don't type up contest blogs while hyper!)Autumn Alliance Contest!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Yes, that's right I said CONTEST BLOG! :iconpanicatthediscoplz:
To try to make up for my most woeful absence of late (and also because it will be FUN) I have decided to hold a Lit-Visual-Alliance contest. Contests, actually. Rotating contests based upon the seasons.
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant
Razer Nostromo for Digital PaintingHey guys, I just wanted to share something that has GREATLY improved my digital painting setup.Razer Nostromo for Digital Painting2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For several months now I have been using the Razer Nostromo, a keypad designed for games, specifically for digital painting. It lets me compact all my most-used hotkeys into an ergonomic gadget.
I would consider this a must-have tool for the serious digital painter. I can hardly work without it now.
It was about $50 on Amazon a while back. Apparently there is also a new model out, but it is much more pricey. I would probably stick with this one.
Note: this may not work for you if you are left-handed
Great way to deal with Stress.Great way to deal with stress.Great way to deal with Stress.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I needed this. A reminder of how to deal with stress: Just write everything in your head down, and in the process emptying it completely. You don't have to think about a million things anymore, It's on paper. And just like that, you have peace.
Now you can look at all these problems and say. This is important, this isn't, this is the most important, this is what I need to do for it.
Everyone already does this in their head.
Problem is, when everything is still in there it keeps jumping around. And you'll be focusing on one problem and all of a sudden another problem jumps in and you lose your focus, then another one joins the dance and suddenly your head is spinning and you're lying on your couch staring at the ceiling feeling like you've not slept for a week.
Paralyzed and overwhelmed.
Just write it out, from "My business plan needs a complete redo" to "I don't like the color of my shoes" in no particular order, whatever comes up as you're writing.
How to Suggest a Daily DeviationSo I've come across multiple polls asking, "Have you ever suggested a Daily Deviation?" Sadly the most frequently chosen option was, "I don't know how to go about it." Not yes, not no: the uncertainty of the process.How to Suggest a Daily Deviation2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I will make this as easy as possible.
1. Go here, and note one of the Community Volunteers in charge of the category of art you're suggesting. If you'd like you can also favorite this journal for reference.
The note should be as such:
:thumbxxxxxxx: (found to the right of the deviation, underneath the groups).
A reason why (is preferable but not necessary).
The deviant being suggested should not have had a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months (check this by going to the deviant's page and typing /dds after it) if they have none then you have no mat
Download my brushset and learn brush groupingHey everyone, I just put up a new video showing a simple, yet super handy way to categorize and group your brushes in Photoshop. It's especially useful if you have a really big set like me, it makes it really easy to find what you need so you don't have to hunt around constantly. I've also provided a download link to my current set of brushes with the video.Download my brushset and learn brush grouping7 months ago in Personal More Like This

Education and inspirations
He was born on the 16th of August 1876 (it was Wednesday) in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Before he became a student of the great Ilya Repin, he studied at the Art School of Anton Ažbe in Munich in 1898, so you can see that he gathered quite a good art education.
From 1902 to 1904 he travelled around Russian North. He became fairly inspired by the folklore of these a

First of all I want to thank those of you who have purchased my tutorial through legitimate means. Your support has been incredible, myself and my family can't thank you enough, the notes and letters I have received from many of you in regards to the tutorial have honestly been touching and inspirational - it's been an experience unlike anything I expected to find in this business.
It is that very experience which has prompted me to come forward and lay my cards on the table and finally expose what has been transpiring behind the facade that is being presented to you by these institutions, because you deserve to know the truth for your own financial and intellectual protection.
I've waited to come forward about it because I've wanted my mo

understand a painting study dont just copyThis is purely an observation from my point of view but whenever i see a study or painting based on a masterpiece or a screen plate. The results are almost in every case very good.So this tells me that our ability to copy is quite good and its not really required to be a high level artist.Junior level to mid level ones can pull this off easily too. Everything you need to know is already in the image we are trying to copy so it becomes a recipe for us.understand a painting study dont just copy1 year ago in Personal More Like This
the important thing though is to not "copy" it but to understand it and deconstruct a work method from it.And if you understand that then the work based from your own mind will be alot better.
When i see this kind of work , for me its not the level of detail and accurcy that one puts in the copied artwork that impresses me, but the images based on that learned knowledge afterwards. And to tell you the truth not many people understand this knowledge or are aware of how important it is to understand it.But the interesting phenomenon is that

This is my first feature and I admit, there are many pieces presented below! I think my next will be much smaller.
I hope you enjoy it !
Bonjour tout le monde !
Suite à un sondage réalisé il y a plusieurs semaines de ça, je me décide enfin à promouvoir certaines personnes qui m'ont littéralement frappées à l'oeil et qui, je trouve, méritent d'être vues. Je vais essayer d'en faire assez régulièrement (environ une fois par mois) pour vous montrer mes derniers coups de cœur !
Ceci est ma toute première feature et je l'avoue, il y a beaucoup de pièces présentées ci dessous ! Je pense que mes prochaines seront nettement plus concise mais bon, ça, c'est l'avenir qui nous le dira.
J'espère que cela vous plaira, et que la bonne découverte sera au rendez vous !
