These resources are relevant for both digital and traditional mediums as well as technique and philosophy.
Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life by George Bridgman
Even if you don't draw people, I still recommend this book... as it teaches "blocking-in"/gestures. Copy the drawings/sketches from the book to help yourself build good habits.

Some Tips For Young ArtistsSince Equestria Daily is doing their Artist Training Grounds and many young artists out there are starting to feel their oats, I thought it'd be a good time to get some of these thoughts out on the internet, for no other reason than to reference them when I'm asked about art advice later. If you're going to try a hoof at drawing, there is a wealth of information available to you out there. Instead, I'll try to make a note of some of the things that very few art tutorials seem to mention.Some Tips For Young Artists3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Almost anyone can draw - yes, even you. Anyone with full command of a hand or two can draw. When you start, your drawings will not be great, but they will satisfy you. Keep going. That stodgy old advice about the thousand bad drawings is true. We don't admire well-rounded artists for being prodigies; we admire the effort they've put into honing their craft. Don't expect to develop quickly; take your time and pace yourself. Anyone can draw, but only the patient and tenacious can draw really well.

Dear ArtistsThis is especially to those whom have been lacking motivation latelyDear Artists9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've been seeing a lot of artists just giving up and throwing their art endeavers aside simply because of not getting much recognition. It seems to be a popular reason behind their worries. Well, let me tell you this.
You should not be drawing for attention. That is not what art is about, sure it's NICE to get attention, and it helps if you sell art to support yourself, however, art is about -expressing yourself-.
You are supposed to do it for fun, for the enjoyment, FOR YOU.
Let me tell you a little story that probably wont make sense.
I had the same worries long ago, just like you guys! When I first joined DA on my first account. I had only about 50 watchers max, no one was commenting on my stuff, not many ever favourited my stuff, they all pretty much ignored me. I did try so hard to get their attention, I wanted someone to notice my hard work, jus

This journal I decided to make it helpful. (hopefully) ^^
If you like to paint digitally, it doesn't matter what program you are using.
As long as it is functional enough for you, and you enjoy painting when you use it. ^^
I love to try all painting programs, it's like exploring!
Though we already know that Photoshop, Painter and Sai are great, but there are free ones
that good enough to create artwork as beautiful as those programs. ^^
Many times that I randomly posted about them but this time I want to collect them all here!
So it will be convenient for you all to check and compare them.
What I can say is that I'm grateful and appreciate those creators who spent their time and hard working and share them to us.
That's why I want to support and share them to you all!

What is it about?
You have to pick cartoon characters and redesign them according with their true nature. You can change their clothes, hairstyle, expression, etc. Just give them a power-up!
Imagine we decide to use Finn the Human. First, we have to look at his personality: he's a good guy and a hero. So, we can use it to transform Finn into a super-awesome knight with a giant magical sword and an eye patch.
Or we could use Mabel Pines. She's a very strange and crazy girl obsessed with sweet things and her pet pig. So she can become a Sailor Moon-like magical girl who rides a flying pig.
Do you get the idea? You must use to imagination to create a funny, creepy, sexy, cute or crazy design based on the characters' personalities, am

MLP Animation Acting needed!Dear, watchers, friends, and other people I don't really know.MLP Animation Acting needed!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I finally know what I am going to do. I Have began making a animation called "My Little Pony: Another Brick In The Wall". I know, the name sounds a little crappy, but it's all I can think of. But there's a problem, I need actors and actresses!
This is what I'm looking for:
•Someone with a serious acting.
•Someone who can fake cry, laugh, and sound good.
•Someone who can sound like any of the ponies. (Unless it's a BG pony, don't worry about your voice on that)
I really would like to make this. The story is good so far, but ONLY the actors and actresses can see the scripted. The people who are trying out, please send a note to me about, who are you playing, how to sound in the scene, and ask for the script. You can ask me anything about the animation. The people who are playing the ponies will be announced on Saturday. I am giving you alot of time, please, I hope you can get the recordings done, don't wait till

American Internet Censorship BillA lot of people want me to talk about this to help bring awareness to what's going on. Apparently there's a potential bill that's going to be voted on in the Senate that would allow companies to "blacklist" websites in America if content is found to be stolen or pirated.American Internet Censorship Bill3 years ago in Personal More Like This
From what I understand it's pretty broad in it's definition (which is never a good sign for success) and under the new bill if a company simply filed a report, even if there's no evidence or proof, the offending website would be blocked by internet service providers by law. This is a grossly oversimplified explanation, of course, and you can read more about it here: http://americancensorship.org/
This has a lot of people really scared that their favorite websites, such as DA or YouTube, might get blocked.
Honestly I don't have any faith that this bill will pass. And even if it did, the moment it gets brought up before the supreme court it'll be decided that it's against the first amendment on free speech and be disband
