Need help for the background?many people have asked for help with the backgrounds.Need help for the background?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
as a request is a bit vague! it's not like the human body or an animal..
the background is .. is .. the fucking universe!
cities, mountains, seas, forests, are a combination
of elements ALWAYS different :iconexploding-headplz:
I have not received help for these things..
I learned watching pictures and drawings in the last 2 years!
you have to watch thoooousands of landscapes and store them in your
"mental-database" to be able to invent new personal backgrounds.
it works with the perspective and the composition too!
observe and learn from the experience of others.
a sort of osmosis.
if you need pictures or inspiration I recommend this site
I love it..it's absurd.. sometimes I become depressed because
is too epic.. :iconrazycryplz:
but then I react and I try to improve!:iconlazymacho2plz:
then..if you need more specific help I can try to do

Tutorials and techniques 2It's time to refresh the tutorial journal! Added some new ones and removed those which, after some time, I found a bit misleading.Tutorials and techniques 21 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!
Poses, composition and perspective
Expressions and emotions
Colour theory, selection and mixing VS light
Blending Tutorial by ~acidlullaby :thumb146178
Tutorials and techniquesQuite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.Tutorials and techniques2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.

Hello, today marks the start of an art contest starring my original character (DO NOT STEAL! :3 ) Tiffany Tanooki (Yes I know its spelled Tanuki, its suppose to be spelled wrong!)
Here is her picture
The contest theme is simple, Tiffany is invading your favorite games! You can do this in anyway you want, recreating the box art, drawing a favorite scene, or maybe she is interrupting a scene with the actual characters, whatever you want!
As of now, there are 2 prizes.
First prize gets $100!
Second prize gets $50!
If 10 or more people enter, there will be TWO second prize winners, if 25 or more enter there will be 2 first prize AND 2 second prize winners! So enter early and tell your friends!
Moving along here are the rules.

i cant stand my mom anymore... i cant believe how many times i get insulted for just being who i am
Yes i am lazy selfish silent but that doesn't mean im not human like you say i am. there are other people like me, im not some kind of new species. I can feel i can care.
I like classical music, it soothes me and is simply beautiful and much nicer than mainstream on tv, i dont see why you have a problem with me listening to it. Believe it or not people of my generation can still enjoy things like that and dont care if they may seem "wierd".
I do communicate - i do talk, and not only online. I just dont like talking to you. I speak to my father a few hours per week on phone when im hardly able to conversate with you for more than a few minutes - and we live together.
Being alone is something i enjoy, it doesnt mean i have no friends. Sometimes people just need to be alone. It doesn't mean they dont give a shit about their surrounding either, why would y

Frequently Asked QuestionsFrequently Asked Questions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My Art Practice & Me
What tools and supplies do you use?
For my digital painting I use Paint Tool Sai & Adobe Photoshop CS6 and for tools I use a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch tablet (medium) and a 17.3" Acer Laptop with Windows 7. For sketching and concept work I either sketch in one of the programs I use to colour, or on paper with a 0.5mm or 0.7mm mechanical pencil.
For traditional work, mostly studies and sketches, I use acrylic paints, acrylic polymer gouache, mechanical pencils. I'm also a big fan of crafting, woodworking, upscaling clothing, and jewellery making.
What are your settings/What brushes do you use for digital painting?
I mainly use the brush tool, and occasionally the water tool on default settings. The following are my custom brush too

Behold my brand new Wacom Intuos 9X12 inch tablet. And before anyone asks, it was about $400
But really, this ridiculously expensive slab of plastic is MUCH harder to use than I ever though it would be. And I discovered that I have no hand-eye coordination whatsoever .

The Bet + PICSPAM (Sketches and WIP)THE BET.The Bet + PICSPAM (Sketches and WIP)6 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you've been keeping up with my recently uploaded stuff, you should have a gist of this "bet" I have with my buddy :iconrubberyjido:
To sum it up, both of us are MAJOR procrastinators who usually rely on art rushes and spurts of productivity right before Anime Expo to get new pictures ready for prints at Artist Alley. We work very well under pressure OTL;;
But this year, we decided to have a bet to see which of us can complete TEN print-quality (7 large, 3 small) pieces by AX (July 3-6). Due date is June 30 to give time for the prints to be made. If I lose, I buy her dinner. If she loses, she surrenders her INSANELY HUGE stuffed bear to me, which I've been dying to get my hands on ever since I saw it sprawled over her bed >8D
On top of that, the loser has to do one embarrassing thing per day at AX. With the people we're going with... who knows what humiliating things we'd have to do x___x;; And neither of us wants to lose, just because our pride is on the line.

Problem with People Submitting to GalleryRecently, a lot of people have been submitting non-vocaloid related pieces of art to our gallery. ~dfpdogz and I go through all the submissions and we (most of the time) accept them. Not many cases when they are denied. Because so many people submit pieces, we can't look at every picture and make sure that it's Vocaloid related or not, and we only look when it looks really 'suspicious'. So people usually have some type of OC character (not an UTAUloid) or a Vocaloid look-alike from another anime/manga being submitted, and since they do look like Vocaloids, we let them pass. I think people do this so that they can get their artwork out there and viewed more. We can't delete the deviations from the gallery once they are accepted, but we do remove them from the folder so that it they are 'invisible'.Problem with People Submitting to Gallery1 year ago in Personal More Like This
