JACKSON POLLOCK: Champion of the New Art
My Jackson Pollock Nine by DarkLinkFire
Just as Dada and surrealism had been the art world’s mocking response to the world’s failed progressive pretensions in response to the anti-human horror of World War I, the art movement that blew up in the wake of World War II’s repeat performance was “abstract expressionism.”
Mastering TypographyMastering TypographyMastering Typography3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typography is a rather obscure field, which is quite odd because typography is in everything you read. As such, it’s very important for a graphic designer to know everything there is to know about typography and preferably also the history and anatomy of typefaces. Bad typography is usually only consciously noticeable by type geeks (like me), however even someone who knows absolutely nothing about typography will find text with bad typography harder to read. In this article you will learn some basic principles and features to advance your typography.
Before we have a look at the features to improve your typography we have to select the right software. A few features which will be discussed in this article can be used pretty much regardless of the software but for most things you have to use genuine design software, so a program like Microsoft Word won’t suffice. You can achiev
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!

History of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefaces3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typefaces are our instruments to construct words and sentences. Of course this very article couldn’t be written without type other than writing by hand and scanning it in, but I wouldn’t know how to save the file or how to access the website to upload it to if I had no access to typefaces. Of course I don’t have to say where type can be found; it’s absolutely everywhere. However, most people don’t consider where typefaces come from. Most of my life and even the first 5 years or so of my design career I was absolutely ignorant of where typefaces came from. I mean, they were just "there" on the computer and I never considered someone actually had to make typefaces for us to use—letter by letter. In this article I will discuss the history of Roman typefaces; how it progressed during the ages, how each style can be recognized and how to select typefaces consciously and logically r

Again: Thank God, there are more good news! It's really crazy how all this work is moving on so quickly (with special thanks to facebook, I guess)!
I had an other radio interview (I can't find the link to it) for a european wide radio channel ("Funkhaus Europa"). Moreover I got two requests for giving a lecture about comics as political and social mediums and instruments in events in Brussels and also in Darmstadt, Germany.
And.. ....I'm working on my own website!!!!!!! I got an offer from a very awesome guy, who is helping me building up that page. I'm really amazed by all the awesome support! Alhamdulillah! (Thank God!)

Western Isles - Glenmore Herd JournalGlenmore is one of the oldest herds, buried deep in tradition and sexism, with the most complex royal bloodline and history in all of The Western Isles. Bigoted, sexiest fuddyduddies, Glenmorian stags rule the herd and fight for harems each year. Does are second class citizens, with few rights and no power, usually treated as possessions and commodities. Until recently, Glenmorian Earth magic was dying out but recent events have sent the herd spiralling into dramatic change.Western Isles - Glenmore Herd Journal3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Magic type:Earth Magic and Light Magic
Height range: 9-12hh
Typical build: Varied, typically medium.
Favoured coat colour: Dark stags and light does, the reverse are socially disadvantaged. Fawn spots particularly sought after, Roan and Grey are disliked.
Horn types: Thick, woody and often intricate. Does known for unicorn-esque single-pronged horns.
Typical traits: Bigoted, traditional, neophobic, noble, proud.

201st Day on DA(Hater with inferiority Complex)201st Day on DA(Hater with inferiority Complex)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have been a traveler for many years , been to art conventions , galleries and even have a chance to view private collections . There are always people who doesn't understand arts giving our crude and stupid remarks and for some reason they seem to enjoy it but deep down inside I think I can see through why . So for the case of Deviant art , i have seen countless critiques that is totally BS and funny thing is , there are people who agrees with them , this is madness isn't it ?
Lets just say that ANYONE can register for deviant art and they can say ANYTHING about your arts . But if he or she doesn't have a palette or even knowledge about arts and starts thrashing you , you know what to do , don't feed the troll . Its a sad truth that people have to understand , its just like you buying a bmw and your neighbor tells you that his bicycle is better (cause you cant afford one) which brin

In order to make a character your readers will believe, you first need to know him or her extremely well yourself. This guide created by Tyler Lehmann gives some useful direction on what to think to and include in character profiles for a whole rounded individual. Think carefully to each one, and ask yourself why you have chosen that answer throughout, as you want the characteristics to make sense and have connections, such as fears connected to an event in the past where that fear was born, as to give a pinpoint as to why your character feels as

I have written a tutorial like this before here. But recently I have had more thoughts about it that I decided to share. As you may have noticed, I am not a professional artist, I am a hobbyist and self-taught, and what I will expose here is what I've learnt from my own experience. Even so, I hope this tutorial will be helpful to you!
Another note: English is not my first language, so I apologize if I commit any mistakes.
Feel free to correct my grammar any time, as well as make suggestions or asking questions!
This tutorial is for every kind of artist, but sometimes I will focus more on visual artists (since it's my speciality).
I believe that everyone can be an artist, and this tutorial has not only the purpose of providing advices and tips, but also motivation for all.

Nlr Comissions -ClosedOkay I know I haven't done my other commissions yet but Ive really felt like making more Nlrs so for me to get over this phase I need to make some qnqNlr Comissions -Closed1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When you commission a Nlr I will also make you a free simple icon of the character, the icon will be the over all theme you chose and there will be a speech bubble in it (as shown above). Please do USE your Nlr since I put a lot of effort into them
They cost between 5-20
Regular hairs will be 5-10 but mixed will vary if you cannot afford one do not commission one. I have also never made a male Nlr so I'm sorry if they don't turn out great.
Mixed or regular hair;
Hair length and type (curly, straight ect) ;
Certain colour scheme;
If you feel like I'm missing something please add it in extras.

I hope all of yall have enjoyed your holiday, cuz other than AFA and christmas cosfest so far my holidays arent really very memorable.
I just wanted to say that I've been on a huge artblock, I'm forcing myself to draw and idk suddenly I just don't have the mood to draw. Drawing doesn't seem at all fun right now and it hurts because its probably the only thing I can do.
Welps so I'm here trying to draw, if anyone needs me just note me or leave me a comment, I'll be on half hiatus for probably a year due to my major exams next year, I'll be expecting to lose probably half of my watchers but those who actually plan to wait for me, I love you all and I really really do appreciate every one of you who has supported me till now.
I might not post things or reply often but if its important note me and I'll reply ASAP.

How to Run Paint Tool Sai on a MacEDIT EDIT: Added a small section on pen pressure.How to Run Paint Tool Sai on a Mac2 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: More programs added at the end! For those who would rather try something other than Parallels.
Since people were asking about it on my most recent deviation, here's how I managed to run Paint Tool Sai on my system with pen pressure. This is pretty much all taken from various tutorials, so if you read something you don't understand here, just google around and you should be able to find an answer. Also, I'm sure there are easier/different ways, but this is how it works for me.
Software/hardware used: Paint Tool Sai, Windows XP iso, Parallels Desktop 8, 2012 Macbook Pro. I initially used this with my Intuos tablet but it works with a Cintiq as well.
First, you must acquire both a copy of Parallels and either a Windows disc or ISO. I used Windows XP Professional since it seemed most lightweight to me (and I wouldn't be using it for anything other than drawing.)
Install Parallels. Once that's loaded up, select "In
