Fashion Illustration How to Draw the Fashion PoseFirstly, thank you for all the comments on the previous article, and all of the favorites of the tutorials! I greatly appreciate your feedback!

Secondly, I apologize for this late installment of the article. I've got a long list of excuses, but I'm sure you would much rather read about how to create an interesting fashion pose, so I will move on. Please expect the future articles to continue on time
This month’s article is about the “fashion pose.” One of the aspects of fashion illustration is to make it interesting, and the pose of the model can help with that.
Below I have outlined some basic features of an interesting pose, but please be aware that there are no real rules.
The Plumb Line
Any model, or really anything that you draw should have a “plumb line” that creates the balance for the object. The plumb line is a straight line drawn from a cen

*Edit (1/22/15) : Hey guys! I'm well aware that pirate bay.se is down at the moment (Any variation of the website that use alternate proxies are also down, and those that seem to work, such as pirate bay.to or any of the sort are false to my knowledge, so I advise you to steer clear of any alternate URLs as of this moment), and my apologies for not being able to get to your comments as I'm also trying to find a new way to find these files. I recently updated to Yosemite for other software merits but it seems that my copy of torrented Parallels Desktop 9 wasn't compatible, so I'm stuck for the time being too. I'll be sure to update this journal with alternative ways to get pen pressure as soon as possible, whether it'd be the Parallels method or some other method.

Appreciation and some advice for beginnersI have had this journal in mind for quite a long time, thinking I will find a time to write it down after I find a job (so that I can give 'advice' as a professional ). I've been less active in the past weeks since I was on a probation in a game company and I thought I would make it this time, unfortunately today I was told I have to go back to job hunting again. Anyway I'm not gonna wait any longer since some of my fellow deviants have been asking for advice for a long time.Appreciation and some advice for beginners2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I start – my apologies if some points in this journal are not clear because of language, I am not a native English speaker.
I'm not giving these advice as a professional or an elite artist (I hope I was!), just sharing my learning experience and some personal understanding of conceptual design and arts. Please ignore or correct me if I got things wrong.
Ok. Some related information about myself – I studied computing at university, in my final year I found myself really lack of interests in programming or
10 Top Tips To Become A Better Artistby10 Top Tips To Become A Better Artist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tip 1: Learn the Importance of the Sketch
Sketching is one of those things that every artist MUST do and do often. Sketches don't have to be perfect, nor do you have to show them to anyone. They can be as rough or as scratchy as you like but the thing to keep in mind is it's readability. The purpose of a sketch is to quickly illustrate or develop an idea you have, to capture or study some form of reference so that it can be worked on at a latter date. Because of this, the sketch only needs to convey the right information to you and you alone (unless you are drawing an idea out for a client then the message needs to be crystal clear).
Tip 2: Draw, Draw and Draw Some More!
This is a similar tip to the first but what I mean by this is draw anything that comes to mind or visually interests you. Sketch on the bus, train, in bed and even on the toilet. Seriously! The
History of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefaces2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typefaces are our instruments to construct words and sentences. Of course this very article couldn’t be written without type other than writing by hand and scanning it in, but I wouldn’t know how to save the file or how to access the website to upload it to if I had no access to typefaces. Of course I don’t have to say where type can be found; it’s absolutely everywhere. However, most people don’t consider where typefaces come from. Most of my life and even the first 5 years or so of my design career I was absolutely ignorant of where typefaces came from. I mean, they were just "there" on the computer and I never considered someone actually had to make typefaces for us to use—letter by letter. In this article I will discuss the history of Roman typefaces; how it progressed during the ages, how each style can be recognized and how to select typefaces consciously and logically r

Okay guys, I know this is super popular post for this issue. I am just a person who owns a tablet. I don't know how to fix this problem for any tablet other than the ones mentioned. PLEASE read the ENTIRE post before posting a question or asking for help. If you have a type of tablet that I've reported doesn't work with this method, please don't try to do it and then post that it doesn't work. I also now own a Mac, and SAI doesn't have sense of pressure sensitivity with Macs at all, nor will they ever, because the person who made the program hates everything. If someone can make a Mac version, I'll post the link all over everything ever and love you always. o:

From Resources to Fractal Art #2From Resources to Fractal Art #22 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to my new serie : "From Resources to Fractal Art".
What is really interesting in the fractal community, is the way deviants interact between each others to share their knowledge with tutorial or Parameters Pong (Sharing Parameters to tweak the main fractals).
Therefore, in this article I'm going to select a resource randomly and show you how to start from a tutorial to achieve a wonderful fractal.
This week, let's take a look at Fiery-Fire & SaTaNiA tutorial : Splits Elliptic Fractals
We were hanging in the :#aposhack:,ponging some params and then a wonderful idea came to us ! What about explaining this simple technique to the deviants.
When we released this tutorial, we honestly didn't think it was going to be such a loved technique!
Some deviants even says : "It is a elliptic-splits mania on DA"

- guiding you as an artist and improving your artistic skills
So having said that... let's get started!
I have been drawing for a long time. Since I was little I would draw all the time on anything I could find. That passion for drawing and art has always stayed with me. But the problem is talent or potential will only get you so far. If you really want to become a great artist you will have to put in many hours of work. And you would preferably have someone there to guide you. Even now I am learning about basic skills I wish I had learned years ago. That is the problem of being self taught... you have to figure everything out yourself. Of course there are benefits to that too. Self taught artists are generally very motivated and passionate people. I have only come to the point where I am now just because I am passionate and slightly obsessed with drawing. But I want to know more, learn more and improve more. So that is why I am setting up this little drawi

So sorry it's taken me so long to post on here for the next section on the Ahri cosplay. I have already done a tutorial on her sleeves, skirt and her top. I started her tails first and finished them last because well, they were rather frustrating, and I am in the process of reworking them. Once I completely finish my rework on her tails, I will post another how to!
As always, the pictures will be numbered ;3
What you will need:
*At the very minimum you will need 2 yards of white fake fur. I am lucky enough to have an enormous fabric place called Fabric Depot which has it's own section for fake furs! I got one that was long, straight, soft and beautiful! Fake fur can be pretty spendy, I got mine for 29.99 a yard (1)
*Firm Foam (I cut mine appropriately) (2)
*Stuffed animal stuffing
*Industrial Strength Velcro
*Some fabric or a small belt.
*Some hot glue and a hot glue gun
*Some (preferably) white velcro

How to Make a Cool Magical Girl. Cubealo's Lesson.:iconcubealo: here.How to Make a Cool Magical Girl. Cubealo's Lesson.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Magical girl manga/anime have been around for quite some time. Recently, a new anime, Madoka Magica, has taken hold of the magical girl genre and molded it into something more violent and dark.
We call this "dark magical girls."
A lot of people, upon seeing Madoka Magica, now want to create their own dark, violent, jarring magical girl series.
But, how do you start?
Let's go over what not to do:
Do not copy or borrow ideas from other anime. Be creative and come up with something totally out of the ordinary.
No. Mary. Sues. I swear you, nothing is worse than a Mary-Sue. A lot of people have Mary-Sue OCs and may not even know it. But, here are some signs that your OC is crap:
- Two-toned hair.
- Eyes of two different colors.
- Half-animal. (Mostly cat-girls.)
- Horrible, abusive past, most likely orphaned or abandoned.

I hope it helps!
1. You need a draw.
Ill be using a old one of cake!
2. Save/Export it as BMP! This is important, if you dont save it as .bmp the glitching wont work!
3. Now that you have your .bmp file open it in WORDPAD, yes the normal text editing program!
4. And after you opened it in wordpad it will prolly look something like this:
5. DONT CHANGE ANYTHING!
Just click save!
4. And after that, your picture will look something like this:
And that's it!
If you want a different glitch version just open A COPY of your drawing (bmp) and drag a picture or gif file into the code!

Warning List [Adoptable Community]WELL LIKE I HAD SUSPECTED in my recent auction the bid wasn't serious, so I figured I may as well make a journal to compile a list of names to be wary of in the adopt community. I genuinely hope this doesn't have frequent additions, but I want to make sure that what happened to me doesn't happen to anyone else.Warning List [Adoptable Community]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I'd like this to get the best use possible, if you have anyone you think should be added to the list you can share with me the info, but you must provide proof as I don't want cases of he-said she-said. I'll only add names if I'm 100% certain they deserve to be added, and anyone added is free to contest it for removal. lol i hope this is more helpful than dramaful i know it has such a high potential for drama but okay with great power comes great responsibility peter parker
Before anyone is added to this list I will either ask the informer to note them (if it's a personal thing) or I will not them myself if that is better suited to give them
