Tutorial Tuesday: How a Comic is MadeSomeone had asked me a couple weeks ago how comics were made. I first thought they were asking how the physical book was printed and stapled and distributed. But it turns out they were asking how a book was made from concept, to writing, to the art. And I realized, unless you have been a life long comic fan, the answer isn't that obvious. So I'm going to show you step by step how a comic is made. I'll be using my comic Shadows of Oblivion as the example, however most comics are not a one man show like mine, most are team efforts, so keep that in mind as we go through this. Each stage is usually executed by one person who is an expert in his or her field, and rarely does one person do all the work.Tutorial Tuesday: How a Comic is Made2 years ago in Personal More Like This
so here we go!
Step 1: Plan Out The Story
This stage is usually executed by either an editorial staff at large companies, by licensors if it is a licensed property, or by the writer for small or inde
Tutorial Tuesday: FacesOkay lets draw some faces! Before we jump in let me just say that this tutorial is for the general guideline to draw faces. Every human being is built a little different so even though I'm going to give you a guideline on how you should draw faces, know that these are the average proportions. As in if you took every human being on the planet and averaged their proportions you'd get something like this. But individuals will have eyes that might be slightly farther apart. or noses that are longer etc. So use these as a starting point then exagerate certain features to create you're own unique looking character.Tutorial Tuesday: Faces2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also this tutorial is for those of you at the starting level, for those of you who have no idea how to draw a face properly and you've just been drawing features haphazardly and hoping for the best.
So lets start:
1. The Head

Tutorial Tuesday: PortfoliosSo you want to be a professional artist, and you have an opportunity to show off your art to an editor, or art director. But you have to put together a portfolio. First impressions count, so you have to make sure you do this right if you want to be taken seriously. And you're friend Shono is here to help!Tutorial Tuesday: Portfolios2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The key is professionalism. If you want to be taken seriously, you have to look like you take this seriously. When I first started out my art sucked... really really bad... but I conducted myself very professionally, and presented my art professionally. So even though my art was terrible, and I was not going to be hired, the editors and publishers I talked to treated me with respect and took me seriously, as they could tell I took it seriously. In fact many many times an editor, after critiquing my art and telling me why it sucks, commented about how I presented my work.. This was often followed by him giving me his card. Even thou
Tutorial Tuesday: CompositionOkay so you want to make a an amazing piece of art, and despite the fact your anatomy and perspective is great, the art just doesn't look right. Why does does your art still not look amazing? It may be the composition.Tutorial Tuesday: Composition2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who are new to art or the concept in general, composition is how you arrange or compose the subjects in your drawing. Believe it or not, regardless of how well you draw the composition can make or break the art.
There are alot of ideas and theories in composition, not all apply at all times, so I'm not going to bog you down with all the little details, and just focus on the 4 major composition concepts I use in my own art. Ready? GO!
1. NOT IN THE CENTER.
(and no horizontal or vertical lines either)
I lump these two together because its everyone's instinct. Every kid does it, and every adult who isn't told other wise does it. Everyone always wants to put the subject of the art smack dab in the middle and use all vertical
Time To Give away a Free Tiny Top HatWell! I mentioned before that we only needed to make 39 more sales to meet the first goal I ever made for our online shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/littlecasaroo?ref=si_shop) of 365 sales. Since then, we've made a few more sales, so now we only need to sell 13 1 more hat To reach that goal and I have confidence that we're definitely gonna do it!! :iconfinallyplz:Time To Give away a Free Tiny Top Hat2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We're going to randomly pick someone out of the last 39 sales to receive a completely free Tiny Top Hat! So if you want a chance to win the free hat, there's only 13 1 more spot left!
Also, I'd be happy to feature everyone on Deviantart who was one of these final 39 sales if you'll just let me know it was you!
I'm so excited for this and I hope everyone else is too! I appreciate all the support, and even if you can't buy a hat, I'd still love to do more contests and giveaways some time next year!!

Tutorial Tuesday: Comfort ZoneSo I'm going to be trying something different here on Tutorial Tuesdays. I see a ton of tutorials out there on Deviant Art and Tumblr on how to draw. 99% of them are great, but i noticed something: They're all about the same things. You can find a dozen or more tutorials on how to draw faces, or hands, or bodies, or any of that stuff, and most of them are great. So I started thinking to myself, "why do I want to do tutorials about things other people have already done?" Unless I can add some insight to the process I haven't seen before, or contributing anything new, I might as well just refer people to the tutorials that have come before me. It would save me time typing these up, and you'll get the same benefit from it.Tutorial Tuesday: Comfort Zone2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So from now on Tutorial Tuesday is going to be about things I have never, or very rarely ever seen a tutorial on. Thats not to say I'll never do a tutorial again on how to draw faces or hands, but I'm not going to do it un

$2.50 healthy meal for the poor or cheapIt's a well-known fact that people with lower income levels in the West generally have a poor diet. That is one of the major factors which determines their lower life expectancy, and poorer general health. The big question for me is 'why'?$2.50 healthy meal for the poor or cheap2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am a cheapskate, and often times enjoy eating cheap food. I am also a health and fitness nut, so the food I eat must be healthy. I have a genetic predisposition to being overweight, but I have around 6% body fat due to my diet and exercise routine. For reference, my deviant ID below is probably just over 10% body fat. I am also lazy, so cooking for a long time is out of the question. Turns out that all of these conditions are easily satisfied.
Let's suppose you are poor and you have a minimum wage job. I'll give you a brief outline about how to feed yourself for ~$10 for a whole day with just about the healthiest food you can eat for ANY amount of money. That's right, you can eat better than your neighbor making over a hundred grand.

Critique is a DialogueCommunication is a collaborative effort.Critique is a Dialogue1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Students and teachers, doctors and patients, the UN and member states—no matter how different the backgrounds are, no matter the gap in experience or who's leading the conversation, it's important for communication to succeed. And the only way to do that is by making sure there's always room for a dialogue.
Dialogue: two sides having a conversation together.
Based on the literature community chat we had not too long ago, critique seems to be desirable. This blog is a response to the fact that a number of people mentioned dissatisfaction with a) how much critique they're getting, and/or b) responses to critiques they're providing.
This is about critiquing people you don't know, and who didn't request a Serious Business Full-Length Critique.

Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for

200 of them actually. *epic eyebrow movements*
Anyway the point of this contest (no pun intended) is to Draw my OC Universe!
I decided that she WILL in fact be my main OC and I would enjoy some more art of her *A*
She must wear some sort of long sweater. (She doesn't exactly wear pants XD Just the over-sized sweater and a pair of flats)
You can draw her using her powers if you wish (Light and dark/ Moon and sun manipulation. Basically she could hold the moon and the sun in her hands if she wanted too)
Keep her smiling and happy! Universe is one of those sweet and sensitive people, and she only gets sad when something dies or she feels like she has no purpose.
Don't forget her nails are painted blue!!!
Her hair is DARK

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject
