Yamino's Coloring TipsA lot of people tell me they like the way I color! It's pretty easy once you learn the tricks. I made a set color palette for each character (keeping their base colors consistent in any setting), then add shading and lighting effects over the image.Yamino's Coloring Tips3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

And here is the Photoshop file to see how I layer the effects. Hope this helps.

Butterfly Project! Really Important to me at leastThe Butterfly Project... Well, I heard of this in the past, and it really surprised me that there was something like this for self harmers (and their supporters, too.) Before you read, this is to support self harmers not to hurt themselves, and it's not only for the self harmer, supporters of that person can also do this.. Here are the rules:Butterfly Project! Really Important to me at least3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Rules are:
1. When you feel like you want to cut, take a marker, pen, or sharpies and draw a butterfly on your arm or hand.
2. Name the butterfly after a loved one, or someone that really wants you to get better.
3. You must let the butterfly fade naturally. NO scrubbing it off.
4. If you cut before the butterfly is gone, you've killed it. If you dont cut, it lives.
5. If you have more than one butterfly, cutting kills all of them.
6. Another person may draw them on you. These butterflies are extra special. Take good care of them.
7. Even if you don't cut, feel free to draw a butterfly anyways, to show your support. If you do

PE DD Week: Why did an icon get a DD?Why did an icon get a DD?PE DD Week: Why did an icon get a DD?3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Daily deviations tend to be a controversial topic within the community and whether or not a DD is worthy of the feature is, as such, often discussed.
As a CV for Icons & Handhelds I often find it interesting to read these discussions, since that way I can see what the community expects of the features, but the recent negativity on the Icons & Handhelds DDs is something I would like to address, which is why I'm thankful I'm given this opportunity during the Daily Deviation PE-week. I will try to explain why I think icons and handhelds are worthy of the feature and why they may be dismissed just a bit too quickly.
Let's begin at the beginning.
When deviantART first started, it was a site that mainly geared towards customization. Be it wallpapers or icons, if you take a look at some of the first DDs. So how come there'

Avatar Tutorials: How to Make Avatars:iconfree-davatars:Avatar Tutorials: How to Make Avatars5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Two of the most frequently asked questions we get at the FreeAvatarProject are... "How do you make avatars?"
"How can I make an avatar?"And who can blame anyone for asking? The only advice dA offers on the subject is... :faq662:...Not very informative, is it? Well, there's a good reason for that! Because there are so many different ways to make avatars, it's difficult to answer these questions in just one FAQ.
This is why some of dA's nicest avatar creators decided to offer tutorials that can help people learn how to make their own avatars. We spent the entire month of February 2010 gathering up this type of information to help answer your questions.
However, before we get ahead of ourselves, let's make sure you have the right software to get you started.
Lots of artists already have the right software to create an avatar.

if you go to me.deviantart.com you will land on the profile page of the account you're currently logged into.
(if you aren't logged into any account, to our frontpage you go)
it even works with any profile sub-page, like me.deviantart.com/journal/ or .../prints/ or .../gallery/ etc. which will direct the clicker to their own journal or store or gallery.
your newest deviation? me.deviantart.com/latest/
neat and simple, right? we originally implemented that to make it easier for us to link deviants to their own pages in our FAQs, but of course anyone can use it.
sadly it can be and is being abused, too.
you may have seen those stupid "worst artist on deviantart [link]" signatures, which upon clicking the link take you to your own profile.
while you may be lead to believe that you are being targeted by such half-witted prankster, simply hovering over that link and taking a glance at your br
::[Character Classes]------------------------::[Character Classes]4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Note that this is partially in relation to your circus occupation which you should decide beforehand, as it may affect where your character should belong by looking at their skills. Please do some research on the circus occupations beforehand. You can only specialize in one class, although your character may have "sub skills" that are weaker than your "main class related skills", but keep your character skills realistic and not make unreasonably powerful characters that can do "everything" exceptionally well.
CC characters play both a role in circus and "off-circus" duties, these class choices will help build on the character's off-circus skills for the undercover side of Clockwork Circus.

About Ciel and SebastianThere are a lot of enquiries on Ciel and Sebastian and I thought it will be good to jot them here and for some quick references.About Ciel and Sebastian4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ciel and Sebastian are both Ball-Jointed Dolls (BJDs). For a quick explanation of what a BJD is, here is the Wikipedia's explanation:
"A ball-jointed doll is any doll that is articulated with ball and socket joints. BJD style has been described as both realistic and influenced by anime. They commonly range in size from about 60 centimetres (24 in) for the larger dolls, 40 cm (16 in) for the mini dolls, and all the way down to 10 cm (4 in) or so for the tiniest of the tiny BJDs. BJDs are primarily intended for adult collectors and customizers. They are made to be easy to customize, by painting, changing the eyes and wig, and so forth."
These BJD doesn't come with makeup, outfits, eyes , wig. The price quoted for these dolls is usually just the basic doll (head+body). To cut long story short, I have appended some information about them:
