Wolf/Werewolf Anatomy Tutorial!Boy was this the most requested thing in the previous poll, and... I think, ever. I can't count how many times a week I'm asked the basics of werewolf anatomy (or anthro anatomy in general), so, I tried to cover the basics in this tutorial. Other things such as the body torso/face areas, no tutorial for them, I'd just say follow a human upper body torso, and for the head, you know me, try to make it as accurately close to the real thing (the animal you're drawing).Wolf/Werewolf Anatomy Tutorial!4 years ago in Personal More Like This

PE: Anthro Art TutorialsOn today's Project Educate Article on Anthro, I'll be highlighting some great tutorials on how to draw Anthro. Sense there is no right or wrong as far as drawing Anthro, because lets face it, we don't see a werewolf running around to reference from, your imagination is the limit. However, there are some simply guidelines that you can take home with you and practice to better your creativity.PE: Anthro Art Tutorials4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is probably one of the most challenging things for people to adhere to. Anatomy in itself is a little challenging but once you get it, the sky's the limit as far as drawing Anthropomorphic animals, beings and things!
So below are a few pointers!
1. The Ultimate Anthro Tutorial - This tutorial was created for all beginners and Art enthusiasts around the world. It has such detail and walks you through all the basics before getting to the next level where you feel comfortable drawing anatomy for an Anthro character.
Photomanipulations - How do I do it?First of all - Thanks to everyone that added Snow Leopard to their favourites and thanks to all of my new watchers (as of writing this journal and since uploading Snow Leopard, there have been 281 of you!)Photomanipulations - How do I do it?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've had quite a few questions lately as to how I do my photomanipulations. I'm self-taught and my methods have been developed completely out of trial and error. They may not be the best or most efficient ways to get to the end result, but they've served me well so far. I don't really have a proper tutorial, but here's a super quick and nasty ten step guide I chucked together of how I create my photomanips (I use Adobe Photoshop CS5.5):
Get a photo of someone you want to manipulate and once you have that, start looking through the stock photos and photography sections for a photo of an animal, but make sure that the lighting conditions and angle that the photo is taken at are similar in both photos
Anatomy FAQA lot of people have been noting me things about anatomy, like how I learned, can I help, and so on and so forth. Now I am happy to answer any and all questions you have regarding the matter but here are some questions that pop up quite frequently.Anatomy FAQ2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Q: How did you learn anatomy?
A Ahah, it was a very long and arduous journey. Once upon a time I belonged to an oekaki group (I was 10), and in that group I submitted a picture of a dog (I think) and someone told me my anatomy sucked face (they were right). Now at the time, said someone was a pretty good artist in comparison. So when they said my anatomy sucked, I took it to heart. Instead of letting their rude comment get to me, I decided I'd kick their ass and become 10,000 times better than they were at this "anatomy". Moral of the story... I AM BETTER NOW *EVIL LAUGHTER*.
But yes, that's what got me started... as for how I learned... I drew my dogs and my cat a lot back when I was 11ish. Then when I started on humans I woul
Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art SchoolsAs much as I love my school, Academy of Art University, it's not necessary to attend a special art school in order to learn about art. Because of the internet, there are plenty of resources available for those who are self-motivated and eager to learn.Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art Schools2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll start with some of the cheapest resources, ending with more expensive ones:
1. Blogs, podcasts and livestreams. Most professional artists keep blogs, and these things are free treasure troves of information. The best blogs don't only show off art, they also give tips about the business of art and introduce you to new resources. Try starting with Muddy Colors, a super informative blog run by several professional painters and sculptors: http://muddycolors.blogspot.com/ For podcasts, check out Chris Oatley's artcast: http://chrisoatley.com/category/podcasts/ Also check out the Awesome Horse Studios livestream: http://www.awesomehorsestudios.com/

PE Prose Basics: Varying SentencesVarying Your SentencesPE Prose Basics: Varying Sentences2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
When I was in college, I took an early morning Anthropology class. I had to wake up at five to catch the bus. Ugh. Yeah, I'm not a morning person. But I did it. The first day, our instructor stood before us and starting reading from the textbook. Word for word. Completely monotone. I was asleep within ten minutes. The rest of the week was the same; arrive, begin listening to the instructor, pass out. I had to drop the class and get whatever refund I could, while I could. It was my worse class experience there.
Most people know that in public speaking, the person talking needs to vary their tone and speech patterns and such to hold their audience's attention. They need to have a rhythm. Otherwise, they'll end up putting the audience to sleep. The same applies to writing. If you use the same sentence length or structure continually, you'll be the literary equivalent of my instructor.

How to fix no pressure sensitivity On SAIPlease follow the steps and all of them please. ( follow me on my other account :iconyuir0How to fix no pressure sensitivity On SAI2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have a theory on why pressure goes off on sai. It's because people leave sai without returning smoothing or stabilizer 0 . In Some cases people put their min size on brushes to 100 %.
Now because of your bad habits you have to follow these steps for sai to return to normal.
Step one- Open sai tool paint. ( if you don't have it open)
Step two- Go through all the brushes and put min size to 0 on all brushes.
step three- Click Other (o)>Option (o)
step four- On digitizer click option mouse instead of pen. (do with no question)than okay
Step five- Put smoothing/stabilizer to 0
Step six- exit out of sai and close all programs.
Step seven- Restart your computer
Step eight - Do step three again when you have sai open. ( go to options)
step nine- On Digitizer click pen option and than okay.
step ten- put smoothing/stabilizer to s-7 to see if this

just take the image, put it in an art program, click "image size" or "canvas size" or anything like that, and double the height and width (as shown below.)
then post on to your sta.sh, right-click, click "copy url" and go to your custom box, replace the old image url with your new url (as shown below. the background code should be at the top of your custom box, and you will not have to scroll to find it.)

Your characters aren't real.One of the most popular discussions among writers on any website has got to be some variation of 'what's your relationship with your characters like?' And especially on a site like here where a lot of people are coming from an RP background, people start in on these long conversations about how their characters run around and do things and would love to tear 'em one for that scene where they lose their whole family.Your characters aren't real.3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This

First things first. It confuses me when you talk like your characters are people. I just don't get it. There are a couple of reasons for this:

1. Do Be Polite to your client, Don't be rude/snippy to them (even if they get on your nerves)
2. Do send them wip's, so they know how it is going. Don't do the whole thing at once, then get mad when they ask you to change something.
3. Do link the commissioner to the finished piece. Don't expect them to search through your gallery everyday for it.
4. Do make sure to ask lots of questions about what they want. Don't just go off of vague information.
5. Do re-dos for them (small, not huge ones) Don't refuse to edit the work at all (they are nice enough to commission you for art)
6. Do work on the commission whenever you can, Don't procrastinate!
7. Do request a fraction of the payment, if the commissioner doesn't like the commission at all. Don't let them walk away scott-free!

Just Tell the Fucking StoryOkay, so I saw this journal that contained a number of tips, including a detailed section on 'show don't tell,' and I had an epiphany. There was an 'Oh' and everything so you know it's legit.Just Tell the Fucking Story3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
For a while now I have wondered why amateur writers write the most mind-numbingly long descriptions that I could not care about even a little (yes, my attention span is short, why'd you think I put in so many GIFs? but anyway, I'm a bit atypical there). I mean, I don't want the 'flames of burning searing pain of the aching broken heart' all up in my grill. I'd genuinely prefer a 'he hated her after the break up.' That's all I need to know about that? Good. Move on.
And that's the 'oh' moment: when people tell you to show not tell, they always fail to mention 'pacing.'
Look, there are times when it's best to convey a mood. His trembling fingers reach for the full glass, her voice an angry buzz in the back of his mind--I'd consider that a reasonable establishing shot. But if you're halfway t

Today we will learn how to make smoooth animation! In this tutorial we will cover a basic movement, but sometimes difficult to look natural, jumping.
I am using a pixel black ball as the subject, but really, you can apply this tutorial to anything you want to jump! Like animals and humans (of coarse they would bend their legs instead of squish.;D)! If your animation starts to "trail", or you simply don't know how to animate, you can check out some other tutorials I have made that are linked at the bottom.

Lets start with the subject. I am using a 13x13 pixel black ball, but you can use anything, even if it isn't pixeled.
Now for the squish! This is the set move to gather energy for the jump. You wouldn't jump straight legged, would you? For my ball, I made it shorter, and expanded it out some on both ends. If your subj

Q: What do you guys think of my story so far? Should I keep going?
This seems to be a very popular question. I'll argue it's a useless question, and explain why.
This reply is directed at new writers, and despite the tone that may follow, I really do intend to be sincere and helpful. I was once a newbie, too. And although I'm certainly not going to claim to be great, I've fallen flat on my face enough times to learn how to pick myself up and produce something I'm proud of.
