I'm Taking Tutorial Requests!So for a while now I've been thinking of taking tutorial requests, specifically in the areas of:I'm Taking Tutorial Requests!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you would like to request a tutorial in those areas, please just post it below. It can be anything from "How do I use the pen tool", to "What is the Rule of Thirds", and "How do I use box-shadow on text in CSS".
Alternatively, if there's a piece of art in my gallery you would like broken down, link me to it and I'll gladly create a walkthrough.
Be sure to watch me to see if your tutorial gets made. I'll be focusing on making 1 a week, and I'll feature in my journal which tutorial will be made each week.
There is a forum thread on the subject here: http://forum.deviantart.com/community/projects/1823517/

So we know what pixel art is. Great. But now how do you shade pixel art exactly? Can you just swipe your pencil tool over the image like you do with a brush tool in order to create shadows?
As we recall, real pixel art involves the careful and thoughtful placement of most, if not all, of the pixels in the image. So we need to know the correct way to add shadows and highlights to our pixel masterpieces, yes? Well here is one way to shade pixel art:
Dithering is when you pixel two or more colors in a pattern to give them a blended look. You can dither with any two colors and it will
Minecraft PVP VideoRemember a few weeks back when I asked if anyone wanted to join me in a Minecraft survival PVP game? Well, I recorded some of my gameplay with everyone and made a simple video. It's been uploaded to the Fresh Epic's youtube channel and you can watch it right here:Minecraft PVP Video1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been wanting to try and set up a Minecraft series of videos with other Fresh Epic members like Dayvi and Humon, but setting it all up has proved to be a little more complicated and time consuming than I thought... so I just started recording my own experiences. I'm not very good at PVP, but I enjoyed making the video and hope to make more.
If you've got some suggestions on what either I or other Fresh Epics artists could do/play in Minecraft or whatever, leave them below. Also, thumb up and like the video if you enjoyed it.
Mewthree Design Contest (with prizes) (Closed!)The-Mew3-Townside is hosting a design contest for the ultimate Fakemon, the Mewthree. The premise is simple. From August 1st to the end of August 31st we're inviting both members and non-members alike to participate in designing their very own Mewthree. There are a few rules to follow in this contest:Mewthree Design Contest (with prizes) (Closed!)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1.) Unless it is literally a black and white character, the Mewthree must be in color.
2.) It can be any medium you like!
3.) Drawing/art skills do not count here. It's all about your creative design, not your skill.
4.) The design must be new. No copies, and no old designs that you made from the past and already posted.
5.) The last image you enter will be the only one that counts, but you can enter multiples.
Here is a couple tips to help you win (you can see pre-existing designs by doing a search for 'Mewthree' so you know what not to do):
1.) Avoid certain colors. Black and red mostly. It's very common.
2.) Don't be too simple, like just change the colors of a Mewtwo.
3.) Also do

Rat Anatomy Compilation.Rats are very fascinating little creatures. They have small hands like humans, minus the thumbs. They are intelligent and social, and each rat has a unique personality. They can also easily stand on their hind legs, making them an easy transition to an anthropomorphic form for stories and art.Rat Anatomy Compilation.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, though, they are damn difficult to draw, and there are precious few resources for those wishing to delve into their anatomical structure (certainly me included). So I will be collecting references, both photos and drawings, that I think might be helpful to someone looking to draw my charming friend Rattus norvegicus (and perhaps some of his closest family members). I will probably add to this from time to time as I find new resources, so please feel free to suggest things that you think might be useful!

Let's join to the blackout against SOPA MMDers!Let's join to the blackout against SOPA MMDers!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today is the blackout of many websites in protest against the absurd law SOPA and PIPA that support censorship and is a danger against internet freedom. This law could affect not only United States but in a future, other countries if this isn't stopped. Many sites like Wikipedia, Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc, are putting a message of blackout and ask U.S. people to sign petitions to the congress people against this law. These days this law has been discussed in the congress and in The White House, Obama's administration is against this law but they just "freezed" it but not stopped entirely yet. I think MMDers we can do something too, you can see dA is supporting this measure too, you can see the "debate SOPA" thing above.
If you don't know what is about that law, check out the english site of Wikipedia or enter to the "debate SOPA" thing, above in your dA account.

- 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

LimitlessI am amazing, I have and will continue to do great things, I am the right guy for the job, I am the right guy for her, I can do and be anything. Sounds arrogant doesn't it? But why should it? Why should someone limit how positively they see themselves? So that people don't think that you're a dick or so that you don't big yourself up to be something you're not? But what if you can be that something, what if you already are? People saying things like, "She/he/it is out of my league" implying you can't achieve a certain thing when someone else could, just makes my brain ache. Why can't you achieve something and even go further than what someone else has already achieved? It makes no sense to believe you're inferior to someone else in any way so long as you choose to attain their level of status in anything. Anyone can be with everyone, anyone can be anything, there are no limits as to how far you can go so long as you choose to actually go there.

New Pokemon Dungeon game on 3DSFinally a good enough excuse to get a 3DS, I was gonna get it anyway for Pokemon BW2, so I can use my laser gun and shoot some Pokes in my room, however it seems like Pokemon massacre was the only thing fun and unique about getting a 3DS for BW2... Well problem solved! A new Pokemon game has just been announced for the 3DS, and its none other than the popular spinoff series POKEMON DUNGEON! This time the game has a long ass name, its called Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Magnagate and the Infinite Labyrinth, a total of 14 syllables! Lucky this is just a direct translation to the Japanese game, don't know if they will translate it to something simplier with the western release. The game in the trailer looks dope, with 3D character models instead of the sprite ones from previous games, it also features the Unova Pokes heavily meaning you will have a chance of using Oshawott, Snivvy and Tepig.. I will probably use Pikachu again, no matter how many resets it takes. Umm what else? OhNew Pokemon Dungeon game on 3DS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Continue? 10...9...8...Ever heard of the saying 'life is a game'? I think there's more wisdom and truth to that statement than what it implies. Like the beginning of most games, you start of with minimal information of your story, you have basic skills and experience and you're given a handful of 'extra lives'. Similar to RPG's your story is shaped through your decisions during the game, will you choose to be the warrior or mage? Hero or villian? How will gain your EXP and how you improve your character's skills?Continue? 10...9...8...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As we journey through our RPG, we gain levels and with it, our character grows. Becoming stronger, more intelligent, more able. And bit by bit, we find out a little more about who we are, our story and our purpose.
Like any game, we also have to face our rivals, our 'bosses'. They don't need to take the form of a person per se, your boss can be anything, a phobia, obstacle, challenge. Sometimes we lose against our bosses and expend an extra life to have another shot at our story. What did we do wron

Things that look so simple are always so difficult to figure out.
The Faithfully FearfulI think there's a very fine line between love and fear, or rather, they co exist perfectly instead of being separated by a line; they are two sides of a coin. And in relationships, you're constantly tossing that coin, like heads or tails, it's a 50 50 gamble on what's going on between you and your lovely. People who put in work, time and effort and who are real lucky mostly land that love side, things are going well and you couldn't be happier. But it only takes one fear flip to shake your foundation from time to time. And like love with its allies o happiness, fun, caring and so on, fear also has his lil team; paranoia, defensive behaviour, rash actions / outbursts. Just because you experience this on that one unlucky flip of that coin doesn't mean things are going bad! understanding that love is not pure and if something negative happens between you two then it can't be true but rather, love is the outcome through hardships and happiness. being fearful is normal, staying faithful isThe Faithfully Fearful2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I was on deviantART just about the ENTIRE day. I was responding to my overload of messages that I seem to have a constant ever flowing mass of. (Sorry for not posting anything for a while though, I've had so many papers due.) And then suddenly, the messages in my inbox slowly began to decimate. I refreshed the page and finally!! I got down to the DOUBLE DIGITS!! So I kept on going, responding to messages, leaving others, deleting activity messages, looking at group messages and updates, and then I refreshed again. I WAS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS!! Down to my last few messages, I replied and commented and read journals. Then I refreshed.
And to mine eyes lighted by the glow of my laptop screen, I saw it. ZERO MESSAGES. *le gasp*
I hadn't seen such a thing in a long time. I almost forgot it existed. But there is was: ZERO. That little "0" at the top of my screen. It was so... strange, out-of-place, and an oddity in my life on dA. But it was there.

First, because always will be there supporters and haters, I can understand that. But when people at beginning come as "supporters" and "friends", but for unknown reasons, after some time, this people just stab you in the back, this is the worst. Also, many people don't have enough guts for tell you directly but spreading hate to people and then, without reason, unknown people begin to hate you. I really don't care when unknown people hate you, but when are people that you know, told you good things in the past or you made favors to them, is just disgusting.
Some people probably know what I'm talking about, and this is something that I really didn't care at beginning but because the massive hate spread, suddenly I begun to receive much hate from people and somebody told me from where came this h
