I never liked tutorial sites. All they seemed to offer was a slew of cheap tricks and what ever lame effect was trending at the time.

Plus it's ran by conzpiracy, so you know it's legit.

Bipolar disorder used to be known as manic depressive illness.
It is a mood disorder characterized by mood swings between the "highs" of bipolar mania and the "lows" of depression.

I even made my own character, but it was basically a recolor of Amy Rose since I wasn't a very creative little noodle back then. Her name was "Sonica". Like I said: I wasn't very creative.

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem
