A lot of people want to learn to draw and paint better but they just don't know where to start. You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them. When you know what you want to improve, searching for a good tip gets even easier.

Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
You all may have seen those old masterpieces – painted in impasto techniques with rich and bold use of thick coats of colours and you have wondered how on earth they could do that.
So lets take a peek in the old masters' tools and techniques.
Today we will talk about a less used traditional technique – painting with a knife. Though it's a second most famous technique but not much artists use this technique.
Painting with a knife results in excellent textures, helps in bold application of thick rich colours, and, gives a whole new different level and style to your paintings.
Painting knives are very useful in impasto technique – both in acrylics and oils. Besides interesting textures, this certain tool gives you more control over paint and opens up a lot of ways to experiment. In one sentence, painting with a knife brings up your painting styles at a new height.

What Ruins A Painting?
(or makes it better)
We all had those kind of paintings at some point, looking at which we felt something is not right – something is not right – But could not find it. What went wrong? We have put every finest details and all our patience in it. Then?
Art has its own science. Science that makes a successful art – something that comes out exactly you thought of and leaves the same impact on your audience. That science is known as composition in art and music. Where your eyes will go at first, how you will draw attention, how much attention you will draw – these are not luck, but pure science. A well thought designed piece is always successful. So mastering the brushes are not enough, we have to learn about the basics that make a successful art!
Hence, today, we will talk about the 'bad' elements which are solemnly responsible for rui

Misplaced deviations (miscats) appear to be the bane of our existence. There's nothing more annoying then browsing your favourite photography gallery and coming across a flashing gif, or perusing through your favourite traditional art gallery and finding a blatant digital art piece. I know this, because the number of "misplaced deviation" reports are staggering. It's obvious that some people have made it their sole purpose at deviantART to scour through the galleries and while I appreciate that dedication to organization - I have to tell you the problem is b
Custom G Jewelry!Hey, all!Custom G Jewelry!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just had this absolutely GORGEOUS Gackt bracelet custom made for me by a lovely lady on Etsy.com, and because it was such a great experience, I thought I'd share with all of you, and hopefully get Susie some more custom business!
I got to choose my photos, and then she worked to make all of the elements coordinate beautifully with the colors in them. She also does purse charms and other jewelry; in fact, the Gackt purse charm I also ordered from her came from Canada today.
Here's a link to my bracelet listing if you wanted the details of what's on it: http://www.etsy.com/listing/156823573/custom-listing-for-lisa-h-gackt-themed?ref=shop_home_active and a link to Susie's Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/birdicatt?ref=seller_info_count . It's free to join Etsy and they have so many cute handcrafted items from a lot of very talented people!
Happy shopping, everyone!

This drive and determination is always working in the back of our minds, always noticing inspiring things, always adding notes and drawings to notebooks, and always thinking creatively. DeviantART is a wonderful, swirling artistic ecosystem with a fertile breeding ground for this never-ending creative spirit.Apparel Collection: ALL dAY EVERY dAY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently at deviantART, we tried out a small-scale collaborative program, bringing in outside artists to illustrate pieces for the seasonal clothing line. For the piece ALL dAY EVERY dAY, I’m proud to introduce Tony Van Groningen, or tonybricker here on dA. It’s always a pleasure to hand an artistic brief off to an artist and have them come back with an exciting piece that can go a few rounds in collaborative sessions to make final. Working collaboratively brings multiple viewpoints to the drawing board and adds a great deal of richness to successful pieces.

As an artist you need to be aware that something very bad is being brewed. Under cover of corporate and bureaucratic darkness, art as you could know it on the Internet will die. “.ART “ will be lost. You need to carefully read “Save Dot Art” right now—before another battle for the future of art on the Internet is lost.

The November "Snowflakes/1920's" Lineart Contest
Last week, a number of you voted on what the next theme should be, and there is a tie as of posting! Snowflakes and The 1920's are in a dead heat, so we frankly have no choice but to run with both! So now you can either submit a lineart about snowflakes, a lineart about the 20's, or you can even mix them together for a jazzy swingin' vintage flapper snowflake voting at a speakeasy! Note that the snowflake can also mean a number of things, including snowy scenes with falling snowflakes, or warm interiors with snowflakes descending down a window. If it somehow utilizes one of those two themes (or both if you really want to embrace the spirit) then it is a legitimate entry! As long as it gets people creating, then the contest is a success.
Of course, metaphorical success is also totally boring. So let's thr
