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 ADVICE1 year 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.
Firstly you are onl

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!
Have a great day!!

Fractal Software to Create Beautiful Fractals.Fractal Software To Create These Beautiful FractalsFractal Software to Create Beautiful Fractals.1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
There are many different kinds of fractal generating software out there, just waiting for an artist to create beautiful fractal images.
Many of them are free and some of them even have creators who are members here at Deviant Art!.
There are groups available that are devoted to specific programs....and there are groups that solicit your art no matter which
software you choose to use.
This journal will by no means be exhaustive, or complete....
.....but will give you some idea as to where YOU might like to start on your fractal-creating journey.
On dA for 10 yearsI'm happy to have been here for this long.On dA for 10 years2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It doesn't feel that long - but in a few more years I'll have been on this site for half my life. Sheesh!
I've improved so much having an audience to show work to, even if the point of the work wasn't an audience - just having a platform from which I could do anything at all has been really amazing for me over the years.
And then... PMD-e... which has been a really tremendous learning experience for me (and others!), in so many ways. I don't want to turn this journal sappy or anything, but I've been lucky to have met so many people and have gotten the chance to help create a community with its ups and downs.
And... speaking of such...
I'll be making a journal later about the state of PMD-e right now - I know the updates have been sporadic, and this has been for a few reasons. I've been thinking about how to word things for a few days now, and I don't think I've quite gotten it yet.
Anyway, for those of you who've been around since

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

BANNED [Update]BANNED [Update]3 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.

Self Suggesting DD'sThank you so much for all the +favs, the comments and +devwatchs I've received and still am for my Daily Deviation "Carried Away". You guys are awesome and I appreciate your support so much!Self Suggesting DD's3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Now I have a confession to make... I self suggested this deviation to DomiSM, so it didn't come as a surprise I received it.
I know from being a volunteer that some people feel that DD's should be suggested by others or that it should be a surprise. Well no, not always. Sometimes you have to fight for your work to gain exposure. Gone are the days where deviantART was a small site... you need to learn how to use the channels on dA to get the exposure your work deserves.
These days, I work in vector and the high pecentage of work I upload to dA is client work. A huge part of being a Freelancer is marketting yourself and putting yourself out there. This is why self suggesting yourself for a Daily Deviation should be

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...10 months 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.

Alleyway IncidentHiya Ryceballs. I left out something on my previous journal, something I kinda wanted to talk about but was a bit scared to... But I have decided that maybe its better to get it off my chest. This is a true story and it happened two weeks ago while I was in Melbourne for Armageddon Expo, it was a sunday night, I had a long day selling artworks and I was back in the hotel room chilling, at around 10pm I got hungry and realised I don't have much to eat, I didn't wanna call room service because I wasn't sure if food is still available that late. So knowing the 24/7 grocery store is just a block away, I decided to head out to buy a cup noodle or something. It was pretty dark outside with a bit of rain as well, much to my annoyance, but I was really really hungry. Now the proper way to get to the grocery store is to walk around the block, OR I can take a shortcut and go through the alleyway.... I tend to always walk around the block as I didn't wanna get mugged, if Batman has taught me anytAlleyway Incident2 years ago in Personal More Like This
