Was 1979 the most glorious year in world history?
I will give you three compelling arguments for why the answer is yes. For starters, it inspired the best pop–rock song about coming of age ever recorded: The Smashing Pumpkins’s 1979. Second, it is the year that gave us two groundbreaking developments in sci–fi filmmaking: Ridley Scott’

Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)

Developing Your Own Style"Style" can apply to anything from art, to fashion, to music, and even to life. And before you focus on trying to find your own style, it's important to understand just what a style is. So before anything else, I looked up the definition of the word "style." But after checking several different resources, I decided to try to re-word the definitions a bit to best suit this article. So, in my own words, style is one's own personal take on a specific form of expression. So to create your own style, you take a form of expression (i.e. art, fashion, etc.), reflect upon it, and form your own tastes of it.Developing Your Own Style4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Before you worry about finding your own style, find more out about yourself. Look all around you. Find out what you like. Find out what you don't like. For drawers, if you absolutely hate anime, then you obviously shouldn't be drawing in an anime style. For fashionistas, if you can't stand the sight of a group of goth kids walking down the street, then you probably shouldn't g

PE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style Basic notions for drawing heads and facesPE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome back everyone! Today I'm going to teach you the basics of drawing a face. Before I start, I want to clarify that this is the way I do it, but there are a thousand other methods that you can follow, make sure you understand the concepts and apply them the best you can, you don't have to stictly do it like I do, develop your own way and keep on learning!
Many artists suggest using circles to start sketching the head and the body but... I don't use them. I've never used them. I tried using them in the past and it only resulted in messed up lines and strange-looking faces and heads. So I dropped the circles. If you feel comfortable using them, I bow to you and I encourage you to keep using them, but I'm afraid you won't see any circles in my tutorial

How to feel good about your ArtWe've all had those moments as an artist where we just can't seem to like what we're doing, where nothing seems sufficient and everybody else seems to draw so much better than ourselves.There's a few simple things you can do to avoid feeling like that or that you can remind yourself of should you already be right in the middle of this mess.How to feel good about your Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Draw for yourself, not an audience!
The first and probably most important point, especially for any artist on here who in one way or the other seeks feedback and recognition from their fellow deviants. You should never forget that your art is after all YOUR art, so it should be a means to express yourself, relax yourself, be proud of yourself etc and not anyone else. Never let yourself be pressured to do anything you don't want simply because your watchers might demand it or do anything for the sole purpose of getting more attention. It might make you happy in the beginning but loosing track

FYI My longest post on PC ever. Sorry in advance - OP I hope there's something useful in this for you. I'm back in your thread and giving you my morning before breakfast, is my way of saying ' I care '.
Usually between 1 - 5 NEW students, per day come to me for random pieces of advice. Some from here @ PC , some from Deviant Art - Mostly from Deviant art.
It's always the same questions maybe worded slightly differently and I do my best to answer every single time, every single message. Sometimes I get behind and have to catch up at the end of the week but I do my best.
As well as those, I did 2 10+ question interviews last week, on my time, for students who were still in school. For school essays, papers, projects etc that contain the same questions they always do.
I'm exposed to 'all this' *makes a big circle shape with hands* on a fairly constant basis. Everything that encompasses 'young artists trying to find their way in this scary fucking

Chances are you're here for one of a few reasons:
1) You were attracted by the title
2) You're here to prove me wrong
3) A combination of the above
4) You're an idiot
Well, in all honestly, I can assure you, you WILL be a better artist after you read this article.
Now, before I get started, I want to explain the purpose of this article. Its not a tutorial, its not me telling you what to do, its not 'OMG! I CAN HAZZZ FREE SKILLLZZZZZ?!?!?!!11one!!!' no no and NO! I suppose you could call it some suggestions. When ever I ask people 'how do you get so good?!' or 'do you have any tips??' All I ever really get is ' practice' ' practice' 'FFFFFFF PRACTICE NOOB!' But fact is, that isn't all there is to it. So what I'm hoping to do is go

We will start with my IEPFB summer break first since it will be the shortest read. During summer (Starting mid May for me) I will be pausing IEPFB until late August. This is so I can do the following:
I will be reopening ATs and Point comishies for that time. I do a bunch of comic art but I don't do many Ats and stuff. Maaaaaaany people have asked for them so why not.
I will also be running a summer comic to replace BMG called SinSeries. xSpiral-Moonx and emthesmall have been force-I mean have agreed to assist me with lines and colours. I will most likely do the bgs because Em struggles just as I have XD.
Now to give you guys an idea what SinSeries is:
This takes place in a busy urban city where a corporation called Virtue Corps. Designs and construct weapons in the form of humans. They are synthetic organic androids made with DNA that was found in a meteor some time before.

absurd abstractions"All of us possess the eye of flesh, the eye of mind, and the eye of spirit. We can classify art in terms of which eye it mostly relies on.absurd abstractions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Realism and naturalism, for example, rely mostly on the eye of flesh; abstract, conceptual, and surrealistic art rely mostly on the eye of mind;
and certain great works of spiritual art rely on the eye of contemplation, the eye of spirit.
Each of these eyes sees a different world—the world of material objects, of mental ideas, of spiritual realities.
And each eye can paint what it sees. The higher the eye, the deeper the art."

I woke up really early in my new room bright and early I looked out my window and looked at the beautiful scenery that I had. After a few minutes I got ready in some clothes that were given to me for work.After I got ready there was a knock at my door and I told them that they could come in. It was Mahad and Isis, "Good mourning, [Y/n] how are you this mourning?" asked Isis smiling.
"I'm fine thank you for asking." I replied smiling, " and how are you two this mourning?" I asked to be polite. "We are fine, so your first job is to feed the horses and then you need to go and fill this jug with water." said Mahad while handing me a big jug. " Okay I'll get started on that."
Memorial for y0ur4n63l.Y0UR4N63L has been a chat moderator in our chat room for quite a while now, and during that time he has been a wonderful personality to have around, as well as a good friend. He was kind hearted and helpful, and it was privilege to have him on our team.Memorial for y0ur4n63l.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This morning though I received the heartbreaking news that he had passed away. My thoughts are with him and his family. It feels horrible to lose someone so close to me, personally, and it is very sad that his presence will no longer be in our chat room.
On hearing that he had passed away we have been very tearful simply because he was so nice to know.
I make this memorial on behalf of all the chat moderators in loving memory of Y0UR4N63L and all that he was.
Rest in peace, Angel. You will be sorely missed. You will be in our hearts for now and for a time to come.
Edit: There is a folder called in memory of Angel for if you would like to make something for him.

We were talking about funny uni-related things and then I suddenly said:

Then a boy from that group we recently met replied to me in a really camp way:

The Art of Feedback: CritiquesI Asked: Why do you critique art? How do you critique art?The Art of Feedback: Critiques2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this poll, I asked you to tell me a little bit about your process on how and why you give feedback. I got some really interesting answers!
"...if I give feedback, the other will appreciate the feedback, and then they might give feedback, it's basically a cycle of giving and getting. Win-Win situations are always good."
This is so true and something I hope everyone can come to understand. You don't need a widget or special symbol to give a critique or to get a critique. You don't even need special training or knowledge! You simply must be active as a community member.
"...I first start out with a compliment or pointing something out that looked/seemed really good in the piece of art/literature. Then I get to the part where I point out what might need a bit more work, not smal
