Another year is almost over and it's time for my 6th annual traditional art feature of artworks submitted in the year of 2013!
This is probably my favorite, the most difficult and the most time consuming art feature to make, as well as the one I'm never really satisfied with: how does one decide which works to include in this little collection when, just from thi

2013 Review - Pencil DrawingsSo at this time of the year I like to review my favourite pencil drawings of the year - these are the drawings that I have noticed and added to my gallery, and are the ones that inspire me to improve. 2013 Review - Pencil Drawings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
People always ask how they can improve their drawings, and the simple answer is always "by practising" which is completely true - but added to that; looking, analysing and simply admiring other peoples work can also help you learn new techniques, identify what makes a good reference from a bad one, and simply push you to trying to emulate some of the pure artistic majesty of these peoples work.
So without further rambling, these are the pencil drawings (with a bit of added charcoal ) that I have admired most during 2013 - Enjoy

Fake art - why care and what to look forI posted this last week for anyone looking for help to spot fake art. This is not law, if you don't care, feel free to move on. But if you do care that there are fakers out there, then maybe this could be of some use to you too. We have a serial faker on the loose on dA today so it sparked this little lot once more.Fake art - why care and what to look for3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, the questions/scenarios asked are always the same and the responses/justifications are always the same, but give them a minute to sink in before replying and insulting.
(Q1) Why do you care if someone is cheating what does it have to do with you?
(A1) Well, this is a public ART site and if people are submitting art that is not actually what they claim it to be, then they are dishonest. This will annoy some people and not others. If your passionate about your work then the chances are you'll find it insulting to the artistic community as a whole. Additionally, a lot of admins of groups HAVE to deal with fakes as a daily occure
