Tip of the Day: is it memorable?In this ever growing art community (especially online) it gets harder and harder to be noticed. You will be noticed when your art and/or the idea behind your art is unique.Tip of the Day: is it memorable?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Think about how memorable your art is. If it looks like a million other things, no one is going to remember it.
Sending positive vibes to you all!
Tip of the Week: VisualizingWhen you visualize the task before you do it, it makes it that much easier to accomplish and accomplished better. Especially for drawing and painting. Before I work on a film, I take about 10 or 20 minutes staring at something dark or close my eyes to try and visualize the movie before I start painting.Tip of the Week: Visualizing3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I believe that visualizing is the hardest and most powerful way to think. With conscious and persistent practice you can improve your ability to visualize.
See you soon Sao Paulo! http://www.melies.com.br/mega-palestra/programacao.html

Feature: Stories with no wordsAn image is worth a thousand storiesFeature: Stories with no words3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
OmeN2501, creator of the following deviation, Rain, says in the artist comments:
"Story behind it is pretty simple, they want something form her, she cannot let them have it... no matter the cost"
Who is she?
Now the viewer is left with a series of questions... Who is she? Who is pursuing her? What do they want from her? Why is this thing so important she's willing to take her own life if that means they won't have it? What would happen if they get it? And most importantly; what circumstances lead the pieces of this story up to this point?
The answers to these questions are left open to the viewer. It's up to you to decide who she is.

The Founders of Impressionism - RenoirThe Founders of Impressionism - Renoir3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As part of deviantART's Art History Project, Topicality and yours truly have prepared news articles regarding Impressionism, an art movement from the 19th Century whose main characteristic is the presence of tin yet visible brush strokes to create shapes that compose an image.
Today we bring you Pierre-August Renoir's biography, one of the biggest representatives of the style.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919)
Born in Limoges on February 25 1841, Renoir was the sixth child of a working class family. In his youth he had a job at a porcelain factory, where people noticed his artistic talent and was chosen to paint designs on fine china. He also painted fans and religious hangings for missionaries.
At that time, Renoir often visited the Louvre, where he studied the work of the French Masters, dreaming of one day becoming one and having his art on those very same walls.
He began studying art in 1862 under Charles Gleyre in Paris, where he m
Relativity Contest WinnersMy husband and I (Ravenswd) recently ran a contest to help introduce our Relativity Universe to the dA community. It was hosted on my mirz-alt account and was a spin on the old "draw our OC" contest. However, the difference was that the piece had to incorporate either the characters or the Relativity universe in general. For a contest featuring a rather unknown set of characters, we were very happy with the turnout.Relativity Contest Winners4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The judging for the contest was done on three factors: Creativity/originality, incorporation of the Relativity universe, and general art. We really did go back and forth on judging several of the pieces. But, after all the tallying up was done, we came up with our winners.
Note that we were so impressed by all the entries that all non-winners will receive 50 points as a thank-you for entering. Details on the contest and the prize list can be found here ---> http://mirz-alt.deviantart.
Tip of the Day: Getting your foot in the door*Take note that this advice is meant for people that are completely unknown beginners that have no options and are looking to learn***Tip of the Day: Getting your foot in the door3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Comic legend Lynn Johnston (creator of "For Better or For Worse" gave me today's tip of the day. She wrote to me with some advice after listening to my audiobook "The Perfect Bait"
"I wondered if there should be a portion dedicated to people- students etc who are completely unknown, who just want to get a foot in the door.
Working for free is the answer. You might balk at this because some critics say this gives the appearance that there is NO value to skill and talent. However- consider this: Working for free gives you amazing experience. It allows you to practice on someone else's project, see your work in print, establish a reputation and learn- big time. People who won't work for free WILL pay for a course! What better learning experience is there than to work with a client- such as a library or an independent book store or a school- producing poste

It's in fact a really frequented-asked-question I get, over and over.

You only get one life and there are many levels that you can pass. Try to think of life as a game. Always trying to get to that "next level." Identify what you could achieve to get to the "next level" in your life and put your energy into it!

Online Figure Drawing AidsIf you're like me, you might have gotten lazy when it comes to practicing figure drawing. Sometimes it's difficult to find decent photos to reference, to do gestures or otherwise, so it's easy to do a couple drawings for practice then throw in the towel.Online Figure Drawing Aids3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, there are a number of sites out there that I've come across over the years that help with that sort of thing. They pull stock images and such from different sources and give you a randomizer and timer and other features, or show anatomical structures that you can manipulate. Below I'll list some of the ones I've come across that might help you. Some of them have the same images, so you can probably just pick a couple favorites.
An oldie but goodie. I've used this site for ages and it's only gotten better. On it you'll find 3D models of poses that you can rotate around, and they all show the musculature. You can browse the poses, or use the random viewer, or the timed v
