TIPS AND ADVICEOver the last few weeks I’ve been getting lots of requests for tips and advice. So I thought instead of answering each one I will give an overall guide to what I’ve learnt over the last year using graphite. And some of the things I’m going to say may sound very obvious but I’m trying to cater for artists of all levels so just ignore the bits you already know (I apologise for how long this is).TIPS AND ADVICE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But before I go on I must point out though, that I am no expert and this is just what I’ve found works for me so may not work for everyone. And I have only really started getting used to using graphite pencils recently, as I had not drawn for 11 years until September 2012. And so I am still learning myself and have only found out what works for me from allot of practising and trial and error. Also I am not going to go into doing skin textures as I’m still learning what works and it’s far too complicated to describe on here.

don't be sad when they're leaving.
don't be sad when they forget about you.
don't be sad when they say good bye.
But be thankful for another hello.
because remember, they were there to teach us lessons.
they have to move on, so do we.
but one thing i know, family and true friends will stay.
they will never forget and we will never be forgotten.
no matter how tough things are, no matter how bad the situation is.
stay strong and be happy!

Stolen WorkUPDATE:Stolen Work2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you for all the messages, and I hope some of you may have recognised some of the other stolen work in her gallery.
I only had time to report one deviation this morning and when I came to report the others this evening, her gallery seemed to be empty, so I assumed all the work had been removed, until I read some of the messages below. I didn't realise you could hide your gallery like that!
I have now reported all 7 deviations....wouldn't it be nice if dA thought of allowing you to do this on one form, if all the work is in one gallery, rather than filling in so many separate forms!
I did send the girl a note this morning, to give her the chance to explain, in case it was some sort of mistake, but had no reply, she just hid her gallery.
Hopefully dA will do something about this!

How did the introduction of Jazz, Crazes and popular media influence the American populace during the early 1920s?
Brilliant question Silverpoint345, well well well firstly the American public heard the music and was like "HELL NAH THIS AINT MUSIC" cos in the 1920s everyone was kinda boring and didn't do much except for talkin about the weather, then after a while they became more open minded and were like "HELL YEAH THIS IS MY KINDA SH*T" and the

Photograph or Pencil Drawing - you decide...First of all I do not claim to be a 'hyper-realism' artist, I am someone who just enjoys drawing, and if what I draw looks a little like the reference I am using then great - I do not draw a pixel at a time, I make long sweeping pencil strokes, layer over lighter work, erase like crazy and basically have fun. In most cases you can still see pencil strokes, un-blended areas of graphite, and lots of mistakes - but to me that what drawing is all aboutPhotograph or Pencil Drawing - you decide...1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
One of the ways I try to improve my work is to compare what I have drawn with the reference image I used to create it, it can be a fun way of seeing just how close - or how far away from the original you have got - I thought I would share a couple of examples with you.
I find placing the drawn picture next to the photograph, cropping them the same and adjusting the tone, contrast and exposure you can see just how close you can get to the original.
Most people think that all pen

Post Manifest 2013 (With too many photos)Hiya Ryceballs, so just last week I was at Manifest in Melbourne selling artworks like usual. It was very enjoyable. Took Green Bear with me for the trip and got to meet my distant relatives and Ryceballs and friends and everything. Melbourne city is like a second home to me, and I know the place very well too. So yeah it felt like coming home when I visit. Anyways lets share some photos and talk about what I did there.Post Manifest 2013 (With too many photos)2 years ago in Personal More Like This

If you know of any Deviants that violate the rules, report them, and if necessary, send the info Kira-of-deviantART's way. I've seen them on every spammer account I've seen so far, even the ones that joined the very same day [it's not hard to catch spammers after they've spammed]. They've done a very good job at keeping dA as spam-free as possible, so if a Deviant needs banning, inform Kira-of-deviantART. They'll make short work of rule breakers.
I've gotten quite a few people banned lately.

Monthly themes are NO MOREHiya Ryceballs. As you may have noticed, I haven't done a monthly theme after my return from my 1 week hiatus, this whole once per menstrual cycle month theme title has just been stuck on 'Back from Rysolation month' for the last 100 years. Welllll thats because I have been thinking about what monthly theme to do next, usually it comes down to many factors when it comes to thinking of a theme. Like how interested am I to that particular theme? Do I have time to do many art for that theme? Why am I doing that theme? I would also consider what weaknesses I have, right now I know I am not very good at drawing animals, so I thought about doing an animal monthly theme. But these couple of weeks has been the most busiest for me, I just simply don't have time to draw because of work (Well my work is drawing as well.. so you can say i dont have time to draw because of drawing.. logic). And after reading people's comment on my poll about whether I should continue doiMonthly themes are NO MORE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
