Tip for Today: When to give up?Never give up just because you don't think you're good enough. We've all had our doubts in life. Successful people do not give up easily. We must prepare and prepare again, try your very hardest and then about 50% more that you didn't know you had consistently, then keep going twice as long as you ever thought you would or could. Look for more knowledge and try again.Tip for Today: When to give up?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Sending positive vibes to you all.

Improving image composition!Sometimes the details of our illustration look great, but then when we step back and look at the composition... it's a little boring or muddy or crowded or our eyes wander away from the parts that looked so good up close... Where are our focal points? Why doesn't this illustration grab my attention and hold it? Composition can make or break a piece. Here are some links that show examples of good and bad compositions and describe why certain layouts are more successful than others. Various tips and rules are described and illustrated.

Este número hemos tardado un poco más en lanzarlo debido a las vacaciones y la gran cantidad de material que incluimos. Intentamos comprimir al máximo el archivo para subirlo de una sola vez y no tener que dividirlo (resultó ser un poco incómodo en el número anterior).
En esta entrega, tal y como en el número 2, hemos incluido arte tradicional, digital, 3D y fotomontaje, así como también 3 tutoriales exclusivos para Templum.
Hacemos un llamado a todos aquellos artistas que quieran compartir tutoriales. Enviadnos vuestros tutoriales para poder compartirlo con nuestros lectores!! creemos que seguir paso a paso la creación de un trabajo facilita el aprendizaje, ¿por qué no compartir con el mundo nuestros conocimientos? ^___^

5 Ways to Avoid Being DiminishedThere's a discussion brewing in comics about artists being more diminished as of late--that readers, reviewers, and publishers are focusing too much on writers rather than the artists who draw the book. I agree it's happening, but I'm not sure it's worth sounding an alarm over. I never felt diminished, but maybe I'm part of the exception. Maybe it's because I'm an artist and a writer.5 Ways to Avoid Being Diminished1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Either way, I do have a few thoughts on what artists can do to pull themselves out from under the rug.
1. DON'T DRAW LIKE A COG.
If you conform to a "house style", then you're at higher risk of being treated like an interchangeable cog in the comics machine. Yes, you're more likely to get consistent work, but you won't stand out as much. Therefor you'll be sought after less by big name writers, you're less likely to make a lasting impression on reviewers and readers, and you'll have a harder time getting raises (12 others draw like you and for less money).
I also suggests inking yourself if it helps. Penc

Some of you might remember the old days on conceptart.org when everyone would post all the things they drew every day and kick each other's butt and give critique and get motivated over seeing how much everyone around you would be improving. For the last years, there hasn't really been a place to get that kind of motivation any more.
I made a small forum to rekindle that kind of helpful atmosphere. It's a really small community, just for posting practice work and getting critique from others. A bunch of great people are already there posting their daily stuff and kicking each other's butt. Obviously I'm there too, updat

HOWEVER if we have discussed you getting a commission prior to this, I am still open to taking your commission.
Exceptions may be made for:
Micro plushies (ponies I have made before, foxes, cats, Eeveelutions, etc. ask if you are unsure of what I will accept)
You may send me a note or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a quote. Please include the following information:
1) Plushie description/reference picture
2) Size of plush
3) Country you live in
4) Any other details you feel are relevant. More information is better than not enough.

DA's Insular Taste PhenomenonIt's been quite a while since I wrote a preachy "THINK ABOUT YO' ART"-type journal, and some of my newer watchers may not know that this is a particular(ly annoying) habit of mine. This is a subject I've had on my mind for quite some time for a number of reasons, and it's recently coalesced into a semi-soluble form so here we go. (As an aside- this journal does have some recycled ideas from a previous post of mine, but obviously I hadn't really said everything I wanted to on the subject.)DA's Insular Taste Phenomenon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's no mystery that I love this website. I came in at the tail end of the pre-critique wonder years, when the internet discovered and exploited that, yes, we don't always produce the highest quality art here. There's a lot of unpleasantness directed towards DeviantArt. At RISD, I made a point to never mention that I had an account here, because of the looks of disgust I would get haha and people would think about me differently. It was
THREE TIPS FOR DRAWING CARSYou know that green ellipse tool that you bought in art school? Do you know how to use it for something other than oval shapes? Do you know what those "cross-hair" marks are for? And do you know how to use it for technically correct perspective drawings?THREE TIPS FOR DRAWING CARS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
TOO many comics artists don't, and it's driving me crazy. So instead of starting a blog that starts showing examples and naming names, I figured it was better to make a quick tutorial. And this isn't just for cars but also for guns, fire hydrants, and millions of other machined objects found in comics.
If you go through this and you're still stuck, please don't write to me. I'm happy to show you at a convention to make it clearer, but within a blog this is the best I can do. Check out "Perspective for Comic Artists by David Chelsea" for more.
Cars are a whole lot easier to draw if you know how to properly use perspective and ellipses. The more familiar you are with the math, the more fun it is to draw cars. Once I figured out th

What to look for when searching for DDs
In order to understand what it takes to choose and search for a Daily Deviation, let's look at what a Daily Deviation ( or DD ) is. Taken from DeviantArt's FAQ
"A Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on DeviantArt. A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
For more information please refer to FAQ 18: Who selects the Daily Deviation and how is it chosen?"
Usually when you want to look for a Daily Deviation, you want to start on DeviantArt's front page and make sure you are on the browse section. You can choose from the last 8 hours, 24 hours,
