“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
― Margaret Atwood
In the UK Spring is most definitely here. And with it comes a plethora of Photo-graphical opportunities. Whilst there are the flowers, trees and in particular blossoms coming into bloom there are also the youngsters. Baby Animals! Birds beginning to nest and in general it seems - an influx of human babies too! There is no shortage of opportunities to take a photo at this time of year here and there are some useful tips to get you out and about making the most of the season...
Use sunrises and sunsets - the lightest part of the day at lunchtime and the dusky evenings to capture spring landscapes at their best. Utilize the foggy mornings with sun streaming through too! Avoid white light - at this time of year it's incredibly harsh and doesn't do much to enhance your photos. And also k
I LIIIIIIVE!Where've I been? Busy, unfortunately. Real life is . . . well . . . real, and it tends to take precedence. I'm not being sarcastic when I say I do wish I had more time to spend on drawing and DA, but that's really difficult to swing right now.I LIIIIIIVE!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's pretty obvious when you look at my drawings, too. Back during the heyday of the Fatales I used to draw all the time, but now I don't pick up a pencil for weeks at a time and my skills (already tentative) have taken a hit. Still, I do sketch character concepts, and I hope to upload some in the near future. And if worst comes to worst, I can always spam y'all with fiction.
Tutorials and techniques 2It's time to refresh the tutorial journal! Added some new ones and removed those which, after some time, I found a bit misleading.Tutorials and techniques 23 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!
Poses, composition and perspective
Expressions and emotions
Colour theory, selection and mixing VS light

Please help me save my eyesight!Hey, all! My friend Patti has started a fundraiser to help me pay for eye surgery to keep me from going blind due to diabetic retinopathy. I am waiting on an appeal regarding getting Medicaid, but don't have high hopes of getting it. I am uninsured and not regularly employed, nor able to get to a steady job. I totally understand that many of us are strapped for cash, but if you can share the page, I'd be very, very grateful! http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/keeping-an-eye-on-you/160871Please help me save my eyesight!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

New Prints!i've decided to upload some prints after all.New Prints!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
you should know that these are NOT just some web versions enabled as prints, these are separately prepared hi-res images with lots and lots of small details, some were remastered for even better experience. no watermarks, no borders, pure beauty. some of these images were displayed at my exhibition here in Moscow and they looked great. believe me, web versions are nice but that's not the right way to view artistic photography, not how it's meant to be viewed.
so, here they are:

JOE MAD TELLS IT LIKE IT IS
If you don't know who Joe Madureira is please go and check him out. Google is your friend and if you dig groovy kinetic art you won't be sorry. That being said, Joe Mad took some time so share some really good advice that I think answers some of the more important and often overlooked aspects of why a creative person does what she or he does. The real kicker is that this advice doesn't just deal with art or comic books but life in general as well and that alone is worth a quick read through. I know for a fact that if someone had come along when I was much younger and much, much more green this type of advice would've helped put things into a much better perspective than toiling away in the dark towards some obscure goal. Read on and get a better understanding of what you need to do to make it not just as a successful illustrator but an all around better person.
