Today we are going to talk about beginning Color Theory with this guide. It is important to learn about the colors and their categories and opposites and this guide will help you learn more about colors and how they work together.
WHAT IS COLOR? The property possessed by an object of producing different sensations on the eye as a result of the way it reflects or emits light.
This is a Color Wheel that shows all the colors and how they are aligned with one another.
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown etc.
Now let's learn more about these colors
The Primary Colors
Q: What are Primary Colors?
They're the main colors in a color wheel that can be blended to create other colors
The Primary Colors are Red, Yellow, and Blue.
PE :Artistic ExcusesYou know, everywhere in the world, inspiration strikes, new artists are born, and new styles are born. We all start as beginners and take our time...but then certain points...there are times when we feel a certain way about our art. Some people don't think that they cannot get better when you know you can. Some people feel they should quit....when you can keep going. Some people feel like you're nothing...when you are something...those things are called excuses...there is no excuse why you cannot accomplish your goals to become an artist. The quotes you see oftenPE :Artistic Excuses2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"OMG! Your art is so cute!"
"That is awesome!"
"I love your art"
"Your art is very cool and different."
That alone should motivate you to keep going. But if you still feel weary of your art and if you still feel like your art cannot get better even after comments that should motivate your to keep going, here's a guide to help you out and a guide of excuses that are often shown w
Advice from a BuddhistI'm reading this book called When Things Fall Apart by an American Buddhist nun named Pema Chodron, and I thought I'd share some passages from it with you all—passages that really struck a chord with me.Advice from a Buddhist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"The painful thing is that when we buy into disapproval, we are practicing disapproval. When we buy into harshness, we are practicing harshness. The more we do it, the stronger these qualities become. How sad it is that we become so expert at causing harm to ourselves and others. The trick then is to practice gentleness and letting go. We can learn to meet whatever arises with curiosity and not make it such a big deal. Instead of struggling against the force of confusion, we could meet it and relax. When we do that, we gradually discover that clarity is always there." (Pg. 27)
"When we talk about hopelessness and death, we're talking about facing the facts. No escapism. We may still have addictions of all kinds, but we cease to believe in them as a gateway to happiness. So many

What is Art Nouveau?
"Art Nouveau (French pronunciation: [aʁ nuvo], Anglicised to /ˈɑːrt nuːˈvoʊ/) or Jugendstil is an international philosophy and style of art, architecture and applied art—especially the decorative arts—that was most popular during 1890–1910. English uses the French name Art nouveau ("new art"), but the style has many different names in other countries. A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it was inspired by natural forms and structures, not only in flowers and plants, but also in curved lines. Architects tried to harmonize with the natural environment.
Art Nouveau is considered a "total" art style, embracing architecture, graphic art, interior design, and most of the decorative arts including jewellery, furniture, textiles, household sil

Time and time again,
I have gone on record saying that
the first mistake somebody makes
in pursuing privacy on the Internet...
...Is thinking they can achieve
privacy on the Internet.
Every website you visit.
Every purchase you make.
Every bank transaction.
It is all tracked.
That's how the Internet works.
In order for information to be processed
and stuff to be presented to you,
it needs to be given to an external source.
Where it is then indexed.
Now that tweet you just sent out,
that Facebook update,
that Email you send drunkenly to your ex...
...It's permanently etched
on the hard drive in a data bank
whose location you don't even know.
People are now wildly surprised after
the NSA has been found to be tracking
all this "private" information.
But there is one flaw with this outrage.
The belief that the information was
"private" in the first place...
...Is a fallacy.
It might have not been accessible to
the public, the website's users, or

I was bad. I couldn't finish The Lounge yet. I had all the time too. I was too busy working on Salamanstra. I should've finished The Lounge first. Both comics will resume next year!
As of now I'm still recovering. I have tubes connected to me at the moment and I can't wait for them to be gone. I've been getting back into the groove of drawing. It feels so weird when you don't draw for so long.
Thank you for all the love and support. I definitely will give the love back somehow. <3
Always be thankful for the good health you have!
Have a safe and Happy Holidays!

A lot of the comments I saw on the various websites I went to dealt with upholding the true definition of "freedom" on the internet. It was quite apparent that a lot of people who were upset at the idea of internet censorship were more or less concerned that they might have to be held responsible for their bad behavior online.

Unfortunately I have also receive emails from students in regards to budget constraints at their art schools, and I hear you all loud and clear.
I received an email yesterday from a student reaching out saying their school didn't want to partake in the offer due to the school head not viewing comic book artists as designers, when they asked to have the Kuta offer made available to them. It upset me.
Because of the email I received yesterday I decided to modify the guidelines, so that art students can have more accessibility to the free Kuta vinyl offer.
1) you must be a currently enrolled art student.
2) a group of 6 or more in the same school can place an order.
3) must email student ids and photos of the group of 6 or more, so i can verify authenticity of the order.

PE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS10 useful and not very known Photoshop tricksPE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Saving your .psd with all layers hidden makes a smaller file compared to saving it with all layers visible.
2. You can use the Crop Tool to quickly increase the canvas size of an image by holding down Ctrl + Alt whilst dragging the Crop Tool outside the current canvas.
3. If you want to see only one of your layers at a time, hold down Alt whilst clicking the eye icon of the layer. (do it again to show all layers again)
4. Holding down Alt while in a dialog box turns the Cancel button into a Reset button, so you can reset the values back to default.
5. If you want to just quickly check a very heavy .psd file, you can hold down Shift + Alt while clicking the Open button. This way Photoshop will open a flattened version of the file.
6. You can change the gray background that surrounds your image with the Paint Bucket Tool, just hold down Shift and make click on the background.

The concept of "original characters" may be a bit foreign to writers, as when you create a piece of literature, in most cases, everyone in the story is an original character. However, with advent of role-playing (in its many various forms), non-writers and writers alike found themselves created characters to use in games and otherwise. Sometimes the characters represent themselves, other times not. The main thing that remains the same is that they are loved and cherished by their creator. And who doesn't love showing off their creations. A while ago, I ran a poll asking my watchers and visitors to share some o
