101 of Portfolio Building: 02 KNOWN VS UNKNOWNIn this part on Portfolio Building we’ll be talking about why you should ink known artists for your portfolio.101 of Portfolio Building: 02 KNOWN VS UNKNOWN10 months ago in Personal More Like This
However, before I can begin to go into that, I need to cover the important subject of why inking your own pencils is a no-no.
Inking Your Own Pencils
This point applies mainly to the bigger publishers, especially if you're applying purely as an inker. I've heard this criteria time and time again from the portfolio reviewers and editors: never show inks over your own pencils. But why?
The most obvious answer is because you're not applying for penciling work, you're applying for inking work and you won't be inking over yourself on the job. Whatever value there is in your pencils becomes a mute point. It is a common saying (I've heard so many pro's say this regarding inking), that the best inkers are also very good pencilers in their own right. But that won't be the basis on which you're hired as an inker.
That of course means you need to
Tutorial Showcase #3DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal.

while they dont always work,sometimes they do translate the names.
try translating english words to Japanese and copying the japanese symbols into your search bar in the ARCS folder that way if you have a pervy item you might have a chance at removing it out.
IF IT DOSENT HAVE A PREVIEW IMAGE and you dont know what it is saying the translator didnt help) DONT INSTALL IT,more often than not its a perverted item.
Copy and paste
lets say you downloaded a mod WITH a preview image,you open the file look at the image and BAM its a pervy item one way to clean out a mod folder WITH pervy items is to copy the name of that pervy mod you downloaded and search for it in the ARCS folder most of the time you get search results with other pervy mods with those words in the name.

How To Photograph Your CraftsThe absolute number one cause of rejection of DD suggestions for most Artisan Craft CVs is poor photography. There is nothing worse than seeing an otherwise brilliant piece ruined by a dodgy photo. But even beyond DD acceptance, if you want to people on dA to be able to appreciate your skill you need to be able to show your work off to advantage.How To Photograph Your Crafts2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Sometimes I'll tell a self-suggester that I can't feature their work because of the quality of the photography and they'll inevitably reply, "Oh, I'll have to get a better camera."
Repeat after me: the tools never make the artist.
You don't need a $9000 sewing machine to stitch a dress, you don't need a $1000 stand mixer to bake a cake, and you similarly don't need a top of the range SLR to take a brilliant photograph. It's all in how you take the photo.

Artist WalkthroughThis walkthrough focuses on:Artist Walkthrough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- 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

1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they were a long way from being realistic. My contemplation came to an end when I realized I could spend less money and have a better one if I just made it myself. That is where

It was truly an honor, i mean to be choosen, feels like a dream come true. I wanted to create a special set, with brushes that are easy to load, that are not slow. Also with settings that will get you to know the capacity of angle and rotation, without taking too much power of the computer cpu.My Manga Brushes online3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Tried to put the set of the most usefull ones i could think of, brushes that i use a lot daily, that gets me that good feel of blending. This is for the people that ask me all the time what brushes do i use, this could help you to get the basic idea of how i work.
I love creating brushes, i constantly create them by changing the dabs or moving tiny details, but if you get this as a base im sure you can customize them to your liking. After all each, hand its different.

Tutorials and techniquesQuite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.Tutorials and techniques4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.

A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.

It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Hi!Hey all!Hi!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Been months since I've been on dA and I can't make any promises that I'm going to be on a lot more, I just have some downtime at home and I thought 'Why not?'...besides that, I've been writing a bit lately so I thought I'd share.
Since I was last on...wow it has been a while...I've been with my beautiful girlfriend Amy for just over four months, now and I've never been happier. She's a gamer, a metal head and a great cook and she makes me laugh every day so yeah, that turned out pretty well.
Still in my metal band, Broken Tusk. Things have felt a little stagnant for us of late but I know for a fact that 2014 is going to be a great year for us because we have some massive things planned and I'm really excited!
I'm finally the vocalist in a band that feels like it could go somewhere. We're called Eden in Progress and we've been going, at this point, for about 5 or 6 weeks. Just started learning our first original song and it sounds great
