Arthur RackhamArthur Rackham was born on the 19th of September 1867 in London and died of cancer at the age of 71 in Limpsfield, Surrey. He's considered to be one of the most recognisable artists of the Golden Age of Illustration in Europe, along with John Bauer and Theodor Kittelsen.Arthur Rackham3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
He was born in a big family - it's enough to mention that he had 11 siblings, but surely plenty of you knows that it wasn't quite unusual in the XIX century and earlier. We know that in his youth, Rackham's health was rather poor - hence he travelled to Australia with his two aunts to improve his condition.
After he returned, he began studying at the Lambeth School of Art. In 1892 he started working as a r
The daily life of a Wolfaboo.Please read before reading the rest of the text below:The daily life of a Wolfaboo.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
After seeing the amount of wolfaboos on places such as deviantART, YouTube, Facebook etc, I thought it would be interesting to try and reconstruct the life of the average wolfaboo and get an insight to just how arrogant and pathetic these uneducated people are. Another thing to point out is that the text below is written in decent-enough English, and that a wolfaboo would rarely, if ever, type/ write like that, just so you know.
The daily life of a Wolfaboo...
Saturday morning. I woke up and saw it was 11:00am, but I remembered that having the wolf as my inner animal meant I had to stay up late last night and howl at the moon when my mother had gone out. I growled and stretched like a wolf would, because after all, I am a wolf, right? I looked at all my wolf books and stories all over my messy bedroom. I saw my Wolf's Rain DVDs, and I sighed with happiness. It was all true. Wolves really can leap at very high altitude, have a pa

Never laugh at beginnersA clear explanation of why you can not laugh at the kids and beginners.Never laugh at beginners4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some users (not just spectators, but also good artists) young authors criticize, laugh at "curves" works. This is silly, especially when the authors do not ask for criticism.
Criticism does not work, it just hurts. Assist cautious practical advice and training. The importance of studying anatomy, drawing and theory to understand himself. It is impossible to impose.
The only important thing: the love of his work, love for the intermediate result and a great desire to paint / sculpt. It is better if the young author will draw hundreds of pictures a month of unsuccessful than successful one once a year.
At the same time, it is important to invest ourselves into work, rather than mechanically drawing the line. But investing is not possible if you do not love yourself and your creativity.
I started sculpting in 2006. If I were recaptured desire, if not there were people who liked even the first of ... I'd never sculpted

PE: Wire-WrappingThis article is a short introduction to wire-wrapping, including information about wire-wrapping terms and tools, methods, tutorials and a feature of beautiful jewellery.PE: Wire-Wrapping2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What is wire-wrapping?
"wire-wrapping" is - like the name implies - a technique where wire is wrapped in whatever way. It can be used to hold gemstones in place, and create intricate jewellery. It has the big plus that soldering isn't neccessary, and therefore all the equipment needed is relatively easy to come by.
Terms and Tools
Wire comes in different different sizes and forms, and you can choose between materials as well - you can use brass, copper, silver and gold wire.
Wire diameter is measured in 'gauge' and ranges from 14 gauge (~1/16 inch) to 26+ gauge (1/64 inch), so the higher the gauge number, the thinner the wire.

✿ Watercolor Equipment
Watercolor is a painting technique in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble binder. Usually, the result is transparent and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with a few fillers obscuring the pigment color. This medium was never taken as seriously as "high art" techniques such as oil painting and was rather seen as pale and miniaturist, but it's gradually reclaiming it's place as a vehicle for the most beautiful and unexpected artistic expression. Watercolor can be vibrant and large, very vital, spontaneous and leaning a little on luck. All these aspects make watercolor painting a medium with great potential for new discoveries.

Where do you buy your clay? Help us make a list!I'm sure that at some point, this happened to most of us: "wow polymer clay/air dry clay is great! but do they sell it in my country? where can I buy it?". It's also the most asked question for clay groups and clay artists! So if anyone asks you again where to buy clay, you can just send them a link to this page.Where do you buy your clay? Help us make a list!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, how cool would it be if we made a list? Think about how many new artists we would be helping... if you had problems finding clay at the beginning, I'm sure that you were really grateful to that nice person that helped you find it. Also, in countries where clay is really hard to find, having a bigger demand would convince more stores to start stocking clay!
It's a WIN/WIN for all of us: you are giving something back to the community, and you are increasing your possibilities of making clay more readily available to you. Also, you get a cookie for being so awesome! Maybe you will even learn of a new store that is closer or cheaper!

Our story begins in 1950 with Benjamin Francis Laposky, a sign painter and army veteran who was also an artist and mathematician. In addition to getting a kick out of creating Magic Square Puzzles, Ben created what is arguably the first set of computer generated images, "electrical compositions" using a cathode ray oscilloscope:

Adoptables, Customs What is a Custom Adoptable?Adoptables, Customs4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's an adoptable commission that is created using a pre-set lineart or base and the colours/patterns of the adopter's choice.
How do I start making Customs?
Starting is easy enough, you just have to decide that you have the time to do them and be willing to work with another person to produce something together. A custom is not unlike a collaboration after all, you'll just be doing all the "arm-work".
How do I make it easy for myself?
First: Be prepared!
(Only works with programs that support layers)
The fastest way to "make it easy" is to prepare beforehand. This means having some kind of layered base ready to be coloured. It doesn't matter if it's your own lineart or someone elses, but having to do all the colour outlines *every single time* is just boring and time consuming. And if you want to offer lower prices, you can't spend hours on the outlines.

I guess the timing was really good to be turning over a new leaf and starting fresh with a project that I'm really excited about. Oula has been begging to be drawn and I'm more than happy to oblige. After working on Bayou Arcana for months I now feel a bit more confident in telling my own stories, and now I've finished and have a bit more free time in my evenings, I'm starting with Oula. Its based on the types of Selkies I draw, yet I feel I can't call them that.. so it is and isn't a Selkie story. ^__^; You'll just have to wait and see.
So things may get a little bit more quiet online again.
