On to the real event:
CINTIQ21UX + ERGOTRON LX ARM MOUNT SWIVEL... thingie....
Well, this is how my setup space looks now! A few people wanted to know my thoughts on it. I've been glued to this thing for 34 hours straight (I'm not lying, either; my elbow is swollen from using it so long prior to actually receiving the arm). First off, let's take these in steps. (Ignore theCHAMBA's silly Ryu art. It just HAPPENED to be it's turn on today's wallpaper.)
Well, setting this up wasn't much of a departure since most of you know that I had a 12WX. Feel of the tablet feels exactly the same. No difference there. This is the 1st Gen. 21UX that released with the 12WX, after all. I managed to pick it up for $1412USD on eBay. Quite the deal. And considering how much I sold the 12WX for, my only cost only went to about $750-sumfin'.
But the difference here (of course as you've already heard from m

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

10 ways to become a better artistDear, deviantart fellow artists10 ways to become a better artist10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
How to become better at art? How to gain necessary skill and how to stay motivated and inspired?
There are no right, or wrong answers to these questions, as we all are different and we have our own creative journeys - but here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Make art with your heart
Make the art that you enjoy to create. Make what resonates with you, put your heart in it (not literally) and it will show through your artworks.
2. Be consistent
Commit to yourself. Do something daily, even if it's just a sketch. Perhaps, do a study every morning or make speedpaintings. You may not see the progress at first, but you shouldn't get discouraged by that. Not every single one of your artworks has to be a masterpiece and it's totally okay to have a bad drawing every once

Hello everyone! Its the 15th! and you know what that means? A new speed paint challenge! This month is the highly anticipated hands and feet challenge! I've gone and selected 5 hands and 5 feet for this challenge. No you do not need to do all of them ( or you could and amaze us! ) For this challenge you can do just hands or just feet depending on what type of practice you want to get out of it. I tried to select images with a variety of lighting and dynamic poses. I hope there interesting enough.
Imagination Is Limited.Have a look at this.Imagination Is Limited.7 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's not so good, actually. Can you believe that it took the artist TEN years of constant drawing practice until she was able to draw this?
I believe it, because I'm the one who drew it. I was eleven years old, and had been drawing all my life because it was fun. Because it was an improvement compared to what I drew at age seven, I used to believe that improvement would magically come by itself if one just kept drawing from their imagination, and doing nothing else. New forms and understandings of anatomy would coincidentally happen to come, little by little. Hadn't it been like that for all those years? From my drawings I could see that I didn't know how to draw an arm correctly, but I believed that if I would draw the arm over and over again from my imagination, the arm would suddenly look better at some point because I had invented a new way to draw it.
Needless to say that improvement is painfully slow when you draw from your imagination exclusively. I met an a

The Irresistable RedThere is one thing that is quite possibly the kryptonite of all human beings. Red Lips.The Irresistable Red1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There is sporadic evidence of why red lips attract the attention of humans. Ranging from the reasonable, like being just irresistable, to the overly technical; where it is linked to the arousal state of women genetalia. The secondary might have its place in ancient societies, but today it spreads the spectrum of reasons that can only bend your mind to boggling proportions.
But lets face it, it is in our minds to stay, and even though i don't listen to her music, this song from Kesha sums it up well:

Poll Adventures (updated)Update (2/17/2011): I'm gonna list out the poll results here, as well as comments.Poll Adventures (updated)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I thought this would be an interesting game to play.
I'll make a poll every day or every other day, you guys vote, and the adventure of our character continues based on the result of the polls. Like for example, as of this moment, the "You see a fork in the road, which way do you go?" poll seems to be favoring left. So tonight or tomorrow night, I'll make another poll about another decision our character has to make, and you guys get to decide what our character should do!
It's like those Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books, except it's online, on DA, and using public polls.
1. Thought Experiment: You see a fork in the road. You must choose. Which way do you go?
Result: Left (51%) / Right (49%)
Comment: Well, this is interesting. I had anticipated that Right would win over Left, if not by a landslide. But perhaps that shows how naive I
Portrait drawing and learning materialsSome time ago I got question about how I approach portrait and face drawing. I posted about it on Tumblr, but I thought why now share my thoughts here on DA alsoPortrait drawing and learning materials8 months ago in Personal More Like This
The first thing if You want to do portraits is to know anatomy. Start with learning what is under the skin and understand how it affects the face. When You got that covered You must know how face is structured. That will give You the knowledge how to light head. Head is a cube-like object. (yea! NOT sphere!) On face we have other little cube-like object (nose).
A great exercise is to find photos of a face and draw structure lines over it.
You see clearly now? The structure of a nose, where cheeks are, forehead etc.
After doing this You will be able to create the face from a memory using these helping lines.
Like here. This is Michael Hampton exercise:
You see how everything fits thanks to the structure lines?
Drawing a face requires TONS of practice. Find thousand photo references and practice.
EstrellasJojojojojojoEstrellas7 months ago in Personal More Like This
No estaba muy seguro de lo que podían alcanzar a ver sus ojos. De hecho, parpadeo varias veces, tratando de enfocar aquellas estrellas que se juntaban en una extraña masa que tomaba una forma demasiado conocida, creándole un escalofrió que le llego hasta el alma.
Se removió en su lugar, nervioso, esperando a que terminara de formarse aquella aparición, mientras sus ojos se engrandecían, dejando ver el azul de sus ojos.
Y finalmente... allí estaba...
Frente a él
Con aquella sonrisa que cuando le conoció le pareció absurda y burlona... y que al final, significaba mucho más que cualquier otra cosa en el mundo.
Sus labios se resecaron y su garganta enmudeció. Estirando su mano, observando fijamente ese ojo bonico que brillaba más intensamente.
Y, aunque sabía que aquellas estrellas estaban tan alejadas de él, como el ciborg mismo... pudo sentir la calidez de su mano y piel nuevame
