Special Hallowlicious Feature! + Art Updatesis out! Check out 130+ artworks featured!
Halloween is not celebrated in my country, so there won't be any usual preparations and stuff people do for this great holiday, but you can be bet there will be some people partying tonight! Borrow a holiday, have a reason to drink party! Happy Halloween!
As I mentioned, there won't be new art uploads any time soon - very little time for art because of uni, being away from home a lot, etc. (and haven't even started with studying yet!), so here's a list of WIPs I'm slowly making progress with to have something to look forward to (I post WIPs from time to time on my FB/Tumblr, if interested):

10 Simple Drawing tips #6 - To see.[ PS: Dont forget the Make it cold (http://trichardsen.deviantart.com/#/d5ia0qe) Contest where you can win 3 month premium and 1000 points ]10 Simple Drawing tips #6 - To see.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It has been a while since I have delved into drawing myself, a lot has to do with getting a new camera so ofc the enthusiasm has been very high for taking pictures lately, but that certainly does not mean I have forgotten about drawing, so In honor of the mix and match between photography and drawing I though I would cover a topic that should resonate with both.
*Again I must add that I am in no way a professional artist and you should take the below mentioned tips as such*
1. The art of seeing When you are working with the visual medium, be it drawing/painting to 3d and photography you will even when you are freshly starting out quickly start to see things different, and If you just take a small stop now and then you will also realise that you infact are starting to see things differently, and that is the most powerful tool at yo

Wersja polska: http://ilojleen.blogspot.com/2012/10/konkurs.html
Since it's my 10th art anniversary this year [I took up drawing exactly 10 years ago], I decided to make a contest. I asked the readers of my Polish blog what kind of contest they want, a raffle or they want to draw something, if yes, what technique and what theme do they prefer. Basing on their choices and my own ideas, I came up with this contest:

Big Weekly Features!The newest GoT ACEO progressing very slowly even though the ref doesn't look nearly as full with details as all the other ones so far. As mentioned, slowly moving this project aside for now. This year's been pretty "monotone": been drawing only graphite miniatures with the exception of one normal sized Supernatural fanart and decided to, depending on how much the uni, lack of time, energy, motivation, etc. allows, to fill the rest of the year with completely different drawings - in size, medium used, subject, to add some variety to this year and the gallery in general.Big Weekly Features!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

WIPs on tumblr!Been thinking for months about uploading WIPs, pros and cons of it and where to upload them. I've been asked and I know many people like to see WIPs, so maybe it could give me that little push to not to procrastinate so much and finish my drawings faster, but that's pretty much it. Don't want my gallery/scraps flooded with them, I like to keep the element of surprise for my watchers, what if something goes wrong? + I'm not that comfortable showing something in progress.WIPs on tumblr!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the end, I went for tumblr, to see what's all this fuss about it and as a place to upload WIPs. Sometimes. Without particular consistency or order. Whenever I manage to beat my hate for scanning the same piece more than once. Tumblrers can follow me and the rest will be given links to WIPs in the description after I upload the finished drawing on dA, or can bookmark my tumblr.

The results of Draw Tom Ripley contest
It has been 4 and a half months since I started holding my first contest Draw Tom Ripley Contest which is a long journey full of new experiences. The origin is just an idea to cope with many deviants who kept asking me for points since I won 5,000 points from Plan Gone Wrong Contest last year. I told them to draw me Tom Ripley first and I'd give them some points in return. After I had got 2 pieces, I started to think "why not make it as a contest? It's gonna be fun."

Artists Toolbox: Airbrushing BasicsToday I'd like to take a moment to talk about airbrushing basics. I feel that it is an art form that is very under represented here on deviantART and perhaps with a little education on it, more people might become interested in airbrushing.Artists Toolbox: Airbrushing Basics1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Airbrushing can be used for various different things, from body art, to painting model cars and planes, to painting sculptures, to painting automotives, T-shirts, canvas, even cake decorating, etc etc, the possibilities with airbrushing are pretty limitless and as such can be a wonderful art form to get familiar with and perhaps even utilize yourself. Oh, and did I also mention that airbrushing is fun?
Try it, you'll like it!
Airbrushes come with a few different features which I've outlined below to help make an educated guess on what type would best suit you if this is something you're interested in trying.

This is 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: it's a real pain to decide which works to include in this little collection when, just from this small part of the most amazing works dA is filled with you have the luck to find and see each year, you have at least a few hundreds of top

And now I'm finally posting semi-finalists from our contest Paint my OC. Judges and even I was busy lately, so I hope you'll understand why they needed some time to make their decisions (after all... there was so many amazing entries). And I think it's time to finish this contest. All prizes you can check in this article. I hope I'll post winners tomorrow, so you won't have to wait too long.
What homework judges had Well, each judge had to choose 8 semi-finalists from each category (there was drawing category and painting/coloring category). Here in the journal I posted top 10 drawings/paintings which got most votes, from each category (paintings in journal are not in order from many to less votes...it's random).

on stylesimma keep this one simple....on styles2 years ago in Personal More Like This
style is just how the artist feels like treating his or her world at any given time!
it is influenced by the styles of other artists the artist admires
it is an amalgamation of influences mixed with personal sensibility....
it is perpetually changing and evolving
and it is not a trademarked property
see, i personally am a mix of influences from michael turner , adam hughes, marc silvestri, alex ross a few concept artist, and my design is greatly influenced by stan winston studio
my cartoonyer style is influenced greatly by disney and don bluth with a dash of manga and a healthy dose of j scott campbell who can probably tell you a similar story about the origins of his own style
its the nature of humanity people.
we stand on each others shoulders striving for greatness. so too will i influence quite a few artists who will adapt my own approaches into their workflow.
also.... i'm batman!
just to see who is still reading XD

Tutorials- 'What are this??' REVEALEDEarlier, I presented to you a mysterious looking folder with the words [TOP SECRET] plastered across its cover. Many of you speculated the meaning of such an object. Ranging from a "center for ants", a "magic unicorn that shoots death beams" to.... a .PNG image!Tutorials- 'What are this??' REVEALED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But today all is revealed what the deal is with this thing as the contents of the Folder have spilled all over my computer!
"Business Dog; Business Files" is my personal folder full of all my secret Photoshop knowledge I have acquired over the years and stored in my Top Secret brain!
I speculated a couple of weeks ago a series of Mini-Tutorials created by me, and have since been gathering ideas of what you wanted to see. And I am happy as hell to share them with you
These tutorials will be broken up into three separate categories:
Tech Talk: Will be covering general Photoshop techniques, painting techniques, effects, anything else Photoshop related
Tool Tips: Will specify individual tools,
Products- things you should considerSince I am recently mulling over my postcard set and fight with Iso and calibration and "uh, I have 3 mm cutting border plus 3 mm safe frame, now how much is 59-6 O_o" (it feels like being in 4th class again!) and get a lot of questions about the final thing.... and how doing products is done.Products- things you should consider2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before you decide you want to have product XY for a con or general sale, you have to check what you can actually do.
Auntie Google is ALWAYS your best friend for it. It's doesn't do any good if you ask me where I get my (locally made) products if you need information for Canada. Or... Hawaii. Or... Brasil. It also doesn't do any good if it's not even the best price and service YOU might get.
Things you should consider (this example is basically for PRINT):
- do I want to print locally?
- how much do I want to spend on the actual printing
- do I need extra software or help to get the data done (basically Photoshop and Indesign are always your best friends in that case)
- how much sh
