Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)Art is a process.Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Like that of the scientific method and philosophical alchemy, art can be refined and improved through process. From observation, to experiment, to reflection and conclusion, art is improved by the steps we make towards change, not solidification and stagnation. Much of the advice out there for drawing is simply practice or avoid distractions. This advice is good, but there is more to creation than just throwing yourself mindlessly into a task and avoiding bad habits along the way. Good habits and knowledge will help to excel your learning process faster, and from that, improve faster and more effectively.
Look at it
As an artist, observation is key. The skill we develop is not just seeing, but interpreting what we see, remembering what we have seen and recording it in the form of visual art. This is a skill that, aside from blindness or vision degradation, you will be able to improve during your entire life. The way of seeing from an art

Challenge 4: Yellow - TOP 5Dear all friends,Challenge 4: Yellow - TOP 53 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sorry for late result but we have more entries this time, and even more amazing works .
With a lot of entries therefore it took me while to choose top 5. This time, so many good entries with great concepts. It's really hard for me to pick 5 only.
I don't pick the top 5 base on drawing skills only but also the concept of their entries. But there were more than 20 entries I want to pick as winners :C. But don't worry, we will have more challenges in future.
I think there are too many good entries, top 5 are not enough actually. We call it top 5 but actually I think there are at least top 20 or more, since this time, so so many lovely entries . How about giving out top 10 in next challenge (when we have enough point again, yes). People will get 100 points each, less points but more people who will get it. How do you think about it? Because I think actually this is not a contest, it's just a little challenge for fun and a reason to draw more, practice mo

Protect Your WorkFor many artists, art theft is a frustrating reality. No matter how we watermark, logo, or constrain the resolution of our work, there are instances where artwork will be reposted, ripped, or used for commercial gain without credit or compensation. For some, this can be almost flattering, to know that there are those that like your work enough to steal it. But, the fact still remains, that your work has been used without permission, and for no gain of your own.Protect Your Work10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I have been a photographer for four years now, and throughout that time I am always learning. Part of that education is around copyright, and how to protect my work. The collage above is a brief representation of some of the ways my photography has been stolen. Some were edited without permission, event advertisements, included in a calendar, manipulated to advertise jewelry, sold on canvas, for promoting a cosmetic brand, or even for music videos.

Many people have asked me questions about the drawing in photoshop.
This is all information for me.
Actually I have been using Photoshop for almost 2 years.
I think I have too little experience to speak about this.
Drawing in Photoshop is similar to traditional art
For me, pressing Ctrl + z and History, it is helpful for me.
I will guide you about photoshop painting.
1) You need diligent drawing traditional art.
I draw traditional art throughout my life,I have time I will be drawing a regular basis.
I paint regularly, the weight of my pencil line have very soft.
2) You have to train your eyes.
you must Look angles in everything.
Be it, eye, nose and mouth, all everything have angles.
I focus on this issue and I practice it regularly.
You can see that the teachers in school often teach to draw geometric shapes first.
sculpt clay can help you learn about angles.
if you not have clay, you can use 3d program.
3) You must sketching,it is very important.
4) You should will

Beware of Some Tutorials... This is just my opinion. I have to lead with that. Everyone is free to agree or disagree and disregard.Beware of Some Tutorials...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've had loads of people over the past few months ask me to create tutorials.
I never have. I'm not sure when I will, and I'll tell you why. Deviantart is filled to the brim with the most *awful* tutorials. And now that "Tutorials" have a priority category ( meaning they get to the front page every single time regardless of how many hits they get), some users have been creating tutorial after tutorial just to abuse that loop hole.
Thing is, I find a lot of these people who create the tutorials, have no business creating them in the first place o_o;. Some of them ( not all) aren't doing it to be helpful to the masses. Some of them are doing it to try to make one (to see if they can set it up, to see if they can make it interactive), or to see if they can use the exploit. Those people are not helping you.

CISPA passed HoRYes people, believe it or not the square heads in the US House of Representative passed CISPA by a vote of 288 - 127. I'm still trying to comprehend the mind set of people like that but even me, who am not a citizen of US, have to thank the 127 who were against it. Now, the war will continue because the law still has to pass the Senate. Obama already threatened with a veto against it but it wouldn't the first thing he changes his mind on so I'm not putting my trust in him.CISPA passed HoR2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In Europe we have a sum of organizations like The European Consumer Organization and European Digital Rights who still protect us, the users and try to keep privacy within decency and promote the net neutrality. In fact, there are about 80 of such organizations - all my thanks to them. But it doesn't mean we all have to ignore what is happening in US. Because you have to wonder what will it happen when the big US corporations, protected by the largely comprised CISPA, will come crushing down on all of us with demands

My first cat came from the US. He had been abandoned by his owners when they moved out of the house a friend of mine moved into. Her own two cats were extremely territorial and wouldn't let him in most of the time. All the neighbors had pets of their own, too. My friend even took him to the shelter once, but picked him up again a few hours later because she couldn't bear the thought. His name was White Dude. He looked like a Turkish Angora cat, all white, long hair, a blue and a yellow eye.
He lived in a wrecked car and in the little house my friend built for him. Then I came for a visit and was in love from the first mome
