Experiment Part 1: Training Your EyeSo my buddy karuvan is trying to learn how to draw properly. He's been on a roll as far as progressing. But he's stuck at a standstill. This is an experiment that I've done with him and that he's working on in order to train his eye. I decided to share the conversation and experiment with you guys for you all to apply to your study habits and advancement in drawing and art.Experiment Part 1: Training Your Eye2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Karuvan: I randomly drew over my old pic. Ain't gonna do it over, was just curious on how much I could have done better.
Robaato: Quick question... like... who's work at this point do you really want yours to be close to? I'm tryna gauge what level you're trying to achieve.
K: lol... Joel is becoming a huge influence.

Not Getting the Job--- Here's how getting hired works...Not Getting the Job2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Read the job description...
Submit your portfolio, or don't...
Get hired, or don't...
--- I recently made a post about bad clients, this is the other side of that coin. Submitting your portfolio is like handing over a resume, which turns out to be a lot like prostitution; it's quick, dirty and impersonal, it might take thirty seconds and don't expect them to call.
--- If (and this is a big if) they do decide to let you know they're not interested, be thankful; they didn't have to. Whatever you do, don't throw a tantrum. Even if they let you down hard, just save yourself the embarrassment and behave gracefully.
--- So remember, don't be that kid; the one who's convinced of his own superiority even though he's consistently picked last. Be modest, be realistic; you'd be surprised how far it goes.

The Bombshell that is Skyward Sword HylianAs I write this, the constant state of shock I've been in all day still hasn't subsided even a tiny bit.The Bombshell that is Skyward Sword Hylian3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me tell you all a little story.
When I first heard about The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, to be quite honest my expectations hadn't been too high. I still clung onto my favourite titles, Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. This idea that a game predated those didn't sit well.
During time in Germany last year, I was able to attend the GamesCom in Cologne and test play Skyward Sword for a total of ten minutes. It consisted of running around a closed off section of Faron woods with the Beetle as a test item. I was ecstatic. Link could sprint in a console game again! Those ten minutes felt like seconds, and I was finally looking forward to the game with a new found love.
Time since then was slow. Very slow. Soon, the release date came upon us. My problem was that I didn't have a Wii. The release date came and went. December, the day after Black Friday, my mother informs me that sh

Avatar Destiny Portal has finally returned from its massive revamp and it's definitely worth checking out and exploring.

Well it's rare that I do this (or get the opportunity), but my friend Roland, who previously ported some
superb Soul Calibur models to gmod/sfm had recently given me the go to give them a testing and make a release image.
So I'm just gonna slot this here!
People who used Rolandz's previous Soul Calibur models will find these new characters just as excellent.
People who missed the previous models can find them on the gmod steam workshop, here.
These new additional fighters, Ivy (in an alternate attire), Viola, Sophitia and Dampierre will be released shorty.
Stay tuned! If people want I can drop a message here when they're available.
And as usual I'm working on more stuff, on and off. I'd show some WIP shots
Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.For a lot of you it might be nothing new, but since a lot of you are either new on dA or not experienced with something like "strategies" to get views, comments and faves for their works i (your most favourite dA group guy :icongbk666: ) thought i write up a few hopefully useful hints for you.Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Upload as many drawings / photos etc. as you can. Some of you would argue now that it can be counterproductive if the deviations are not good, but i come to that point in #2
2. Join Groups. A Ton of them.. at least 15-25 . And submit your stuff to them on a regular base. BUT only the things you consider by yourself as "good" . The rest is for your gallery only, and interesting for those deviants who want to see sketches, WIP's etc.
Always care about the theme of the dA groups of course and about their rules. If you are not Alvin Lee, Artgerm or Genzoman or have over 100k views on your profile already and over 400-500 watchers at least you really need dA groups to g

First, i know this is not Korra related. I'm submitting this "theory" because this "Zuko is a bastard son" has been bothering me since the release of The Search Part 1
Second, this is not a theory that i came up it, i found it in a forum from Avatar Wiki; it was submitted by an Anonymous User, do i don't know who to thank about it (if you're this anonymous user, or know who submitted it, please tell me in the comments below )
Third, sorry for my crappy grammar
Fourth, you can download The Search Part 1 here http://www.mediafire.com/?gb5ou192if5gxdu
How do you feel about the whole 'zuko is not Ozai's son theory'?
Personally, I think it is a big misunderstanding. I actually want it to be one . Because if it proves to be true, then it contradicts a lot of things established about Zuko's character in the series. I will be very disappionted if it happens. Also, do you think azula

Comic-Con: Day 4On Sunday, the 4th and final day of San Diego Comic-Con, we were able to keep the love flowing to show the artists and art enthusiasts who came by our booth just how much they meant to us.Comic-Con: Day 42 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
The last day of Comic-Con is always bittersweet. The air buzzes with positivity, inspiration, and camaraderie, but in the back of your mind, you know it may be another year before you see some of these friends, old and new. Sure, we always have the Internet, but there's something special about meeting in real life that can’t compare to flipping through a portfolio of sketches, laughing out loud with your peers, and supporting artists’ hard work right then and there.
There was rarely a moment when one of our seven kiosks wasn’t occupied by an artist. Young or old, newbie or professional, digital or traditional, the chance to sit down and create art was difficult to pass up with inspiration coming from every direction.
