Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.
Beat your fear
Most artblocks come from fear. The fear of not being able to

Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

Now, I could talk about how the joke we have in the White House is, while Ukraine is on fire, hosts a musical shindig at his casa prior to flying off on another putt-putt vacation, but I'd rather talk about a human triumph than a human failure.
This dude, who doesn't even look like a real powerhouse (He looks like a good friend of mine who, when stepping on a bathroom scale, the scale just displays a message saying 'I don't do ghosts'), survived for nearly THREE WEEKS by himself in the brutal bush of Australia, by eating flies! C'mon, this guy looks like he wants to sell me encyclopedias! But no matter who you are, he's manlier than you are because he straight up kicked the outback's keister!

The Elder Scrolls: The Second Great WarTen years after the Dragon Crisis had ended a new threat endangered the people of Tamriel. The faction known as the Aldmeri Dominion looked to wage war on the humans of Tamriel, starting with taking Cyrodiil, home of the fading Empire.The Elder Scrolls: The Second Great War3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Emperor! They have taken Blackwood." said a messenger panting as if he had run all the way from Blackwood to the Imperial City. "Then war is upon us. Ready the men." proclaimed Titus Mede III, current Emperor of Tamriel. The Empire now only consisted of Cyrodiil and High Rock. "And see if Ulfric Stormcloak will answer our call for aid." Two days later in Windhelm Ulfric, High King of Skyrim called an important meeting on whether or not his Stormcloak army would join the war. In attendance were Delphine and Esbern leaders of the now restored Blades, the other eight Jarls of Skyrim, Aela the Huntress representing the Companions, Karliah representing the small but powerful Nightingales and Dovahkiin, the Dragonborn who rid Tamriel of Dragons.

Insomnia Tangents #1Everytime I can't sleep it's usually because I'm aching to express some thought one way or another, so what better spot to do it than here, seeing as this Deviantart account is pretty much a by-product of the titular condition.

If I do have a non-lucid dream it is rarely unaccompanied by a second lucid one. Last night I had a dream which included something that I don't really recall ever happening before. I felt physical pain. Now I've died in dreams many times, to the point w

Inking on the L.A.M.The past few weeks were emotionally rough, so I found myself closing down, creatively, and retreating into an analytic frame of mind. I started getting very picky about technical things, focusing like a laser on - you guessed it - brush strokes. This sort of thing has the potential to quickly degenerate to the level of a symptom. In my case, I think it starts as a symptom, which is my signal to elevate it to practical knowledge and skill by channeling it through art.Inking on the L.A.M.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In any event, after a long period of "obsessing," I formulated a new, streamlined understanding of brush inking abstracted from all I have explained so far. And it should come as no surprise that, as with my original brush handling "katas", it's based on my experience in the martial arts.
"Inking on the L.A.M." * is a simple, practical, and elegant way to approach controlling ink effects by matching brush movement to the kind of lines and marks one wants to make. It is analytical, not intuitive, wh

COMMISSION INFORMATIONSo I've gotten a lot of requests for commissions and the one thing I'm missing is organization! I don't have many examples to show(and nothing specifically a bust or full-body, but you should get the gist of what those would entail), but as soon as this gets off the ground I'll be able to supply more. Commissions will be for a full-color illustration in my manga style.COMMISSION INFORMATION3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Greyscale Sketch $20
A greyscale sketch will be a quick greyscale drawing. By their nature, there will not be revisions given for this type of commission. These are often rough and "incomplete," as they are sketches and not finished works.
Additional characters are $10 per.
Bust/head shot $35
Self-explanatory, this is essentially a character portrait. In some cases, more can be drawn.
Additional characters are $15 per.

The Key to keeping yourself motivated properly.Let me start off with telling you what motivation is and why you need it.The Key to keeping yourself motivated properly.1 month ago in Personal More Like This
A motivation is a reason behind doing something a certain way to work yourself up to a certain goal. Just having a goal but no understanding of how to get there, means you have no way to motivate yourself and your goal will be hard to reach.
Therefore motivation is needed desperately in order to become truly good at something.
The motivation to eat is the feeling for hunger and the end goal of ending the hunger and feeling healthy and energized. This type of motivation is a feeling.
Which brings me to: Intrinsic motivation and Extrinsic motivation.
Intrinsic motivation: Is a drive that comes from within the person itself. It's a self-desire to seek out new things and new challenges to see how far you can reach to observe and to gain knowledge. This person can enjoy the struggle towards a goal absent the reward.
Extrinsic motivation: This is a motivatio
