Contest PostponedDEADLINE POSTPONEDContest Postponed1 year ago in Personal More Like This
With regret I have to announce that, due to my inability to supply the prizes, the contest is effectively frozen. I hope to resume the contest some time later in the year, and all entries that have already been submitted will be automatically re-submitted when I do.
Apologies to those who made an effort to submit before the original deadline, and those who may still be working on entries. I will still add entries to this page if you wish to submit them, ready for when the contest is resumed.
I will make another journal announcement when the time comes, thank you for your patience.
The theme of this competition is 'Masters of Misconduct', and I want to see how well you can depict a true master of one of three categories; Thievery, Assassination or Piracy. There will be a subscription prize for the winner in each category, and a bonus cross-category prize to the best entry.
You will be competing for these titles
What's the Deal with Commissions? Something I've seen around Deviantart for awhile now, and I was curious as to what other people thought about it.What's the Deal with Commissions?1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It seems so often I see many artists complaining that they cannot get anyone to commission artwork from them. They go to great lengths to try and sell their skills, and some even adjust their prices to next to nothing or DA points.
When people don't bite, they ask me, or on the forums, "What am I doing wrong? I only want 100 points and no one buys them"
There are many artists such as myself who sell art/prints etc etc because we rely on it as a part of our income, but many of these people still live at home, or are in school. So, 100 DA points ( for example), which is $1.25 , is not really going to help anyone with bills or rent, or much of anything else.
And yet, there they are over and over, very upset and depressed that no one buys commissions from them.
When artists ask me how they can better market their work so people will buy it,
Bad Teachers and Egotistical Jerkwads Good lord, another journal. Well, sometimes I go for a month without writing one, so suffer! :iconinuevillaughplz:Bad Teachers and Egotistical Jerkwads1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I've been asked about this recently, so thought I'd write about it just in case someone else might relate or find it encouraging.
A lot of people are surprised to hear that I have only been painting since 2011. Well, it's true . I had coloured a few line arts here and there before that, but I never really tried at painting. I was dabbling and just slapping on colour, not bothering to figure out the programs or anything. Because I truly didn't believe I could do it.
Backing up a bit, I'm someone who was a traditional artist. I have been drawing with pencils and paper since I was just a little tyke. Naturally, I wanted everything to do with art in school. :iconhandsomeonionplz:
And that's where this little tale turns dark and mildly depressing :icon0inuscreamplz:

RIP Diane Disney MillerEarlier today Walt Disney's daughter, Diane Disney Miller passed away. She was 79 years old.RIP Diane Disney Miller1 year ago in Personal More Like This
From Disney Blogs:
"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Diane Disney Miller and our thoughts are with her family during his difficult time. As the beloved daughter of Walt Disney and one of his inspirations for creating Disneyland, she holds a special place in the history of The Walt Disney Company and in the hearts of fans everywhere. She will be remembered for her grace and generosity and tireless work to preserve her father’s legacy, and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Diane was a fierce guardian of her father’s legacy who never hesitated to set the record straight, opening The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco to bring her father’s fascinating story to life. In our many conversations over the years, Diane’s unique and special perspective about her father only deepened my considerable appreciation for him. Diane was incredibly ge

I stood and let the rain purify whatever impurities remained on my body.Not that it would really help me anymore. I was finally getting away from that hellhole that dared to be called a home. My step-father finally had lost it and had wiled all over my face leaving a bruise under my eye in its wake. Finally proving to my mom I wasn't lying, not that'd she'd care either way she would still stay with that jerk, only to have her shrug me off and find it as an excuse to get rid of me.
Now here I was, waiting in the pouring rain for my aunt Aireath to pick me up. As long it was out of THERE I didn't mind the wait in the rain. I had some old friends there anyway, so it wasn't going to be as bad as it would be if I didn't. Then there was my cousin to replace that stress driving me further to the bridge of insanity. He wasn't that bad, but he tended to stick to me
Draw and Write contest!I'm starting a contest!Draw and Write contest!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
All you have to do is write a story about anything you want. And I mean ANYTHING! XD
You can also write a poem instead.
And then, you draw a picture that has to do with your story. So basically, a cover. It can be your main character, where the story takes place, anything.
Post your entry in the comments below.
Rules: No nudity.
It can have curse words, but I would prefer for everyone to keep it clean.
The drawing cannot be photoshopped. It can be digital art, a painting, or just a drawing. But the artwork MUST be yours.
You can partner up with a friend (so If you can't draw, or if you can't write, you can partner up with someone!).
Your story does not have to be new. As long as it's appropriate and maximum 10 pages, you can enter it. So it can be something you wrote 4 years ago, if you want.
Please do not make your story any longer than 10 pages.
You have until October 31.

No design theft, or stolen art. I will be checking all entries. If you use stock, please, please state! I don't mind any use of stock as long as it does not violate the users policies.

Tutorial #4: Photoshop y como utilizarlo
Hola compañeros de MexicoART! Soy yop nupao y para celebrar mi nombramiento como colaboradora del Rincón Creativo les ofrezco un tutorial, detallado sobre Photoshop y como utilizarlo en la ilustración digital.
Comienza bastante básico para que entren con tokio al dibujo digital.
Pueden utilizar tableta... o no... En este caso la tableta no tendrá nada que ver mas que para facilitar el trazado.
Aquí esta la primera parte del tutorial:
1. Primero les muestro la interfaz de Photoshop!
Si quieren alterar su interfaz, en el menú "Window/Ventana" aparecen todas las ventanitas que tienen en Photoshop, ahi pueden agregar o quitar lo que quieran

When u draw, don't be a perfectionist! Nothing is perfect and it only becomes when you do it with love and passion (and joy). NEVER BE AFRAID to draw human body either, it doesnt have to be perfect. When you'll fight off the fear, you'll get to know how to do it all better =] So just experiment! =]
IN THE NEXT PART I'm going to show you a FULL tutorial on the background and how to paint water and the waterball =]
1. Draw a single line. Mark the size of the head and then repeat the marks in the same size, as human head is 1/7 size of the body =]
2. Start adding the details. Be very confident with flowing lines, just do it the way u feel like, only then the result becomes better =]

Maybe you have seen this already, but today they have released the Logo and Title for Kingdom Hearts PC, Square Enix Webbrowser Game:
Due to my Personal luck the Symbol is X aka [chi] which was used by me to identify BBS Final Mix as Icon... now I have to rearrange this...
And I am like yay. :iconfuuuplz: Anyone ideas for a better BBS FM LOGO? XD Any help is appreciated.
today was the Day that I have updated a Keyblade three whole times in total.
Ultima Weapon, Birth by Sleep Version, is the one and only Keyblade which got a normal/Redux and now ReMIX rework.
Maybe you ask yourself why, it was pretty neat last time. Well, I kinda looked over the Real Data of Ultima Weapon and found out that I made several huge mistakes, which didn't found my liking, as well that this Redux was so early when I didn't knew how to work with some effects like Transparency for the Blade itself.

SHIFT is officially over! I've already thanked everyone for their incredible support, so I don't think I need to do that again, but I thought I'd mention in anyway.
As of right now, I am not planning on writing a sequel for SHIFT, but in the future, I think I'll do it. I'm going to make another comic with my own characters in it. Sorry!
I'm going to keep the group open because I still might hold contests and submit art, so don't worry about that.
If anyone has any unanswered questions about the story, please let me know. If you ask me what happens next, I won't answer you.
Goodbye everyone! It's been a fun ride!
