9 Reasons to PAINT WITH WATERCOLOR1. - Watercolors are FAST. They dry fast and you can finish a painting within one day. Given that you learn with every finished painting, you learn fast!9 Reasons to PAINT WITH WATERCOLOR3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Watercolors don't stink. No dangerous chemical fumes, no headaches, usable around little children. Isn't that a wonderful reason!
3. - Watercolors are easy to clean. You don't make a lot of mess, and if you do, what water fouled, water will clean.
4. - There is no need for white paints. All the lightness is already given by your paper.
5. - Watercolors are practical to use outdoors. All your tools will fit into a small pocket.
6. - Watercolors are RELAXING. It must be the flooding, but whenever working with water and brush, your mind is set on ease.
7. - Watercolors bring transparent, delicate and ethereal results. Sometimes even a few well-lead brush strokes deliver sightly accomplishment.
8. - Watercolors are DIVERSE. They can be used in many very different ways and are ea

A concise guide on how to get better at artSo youre a kid looking down at your anime or comic characters and wondering why after a few years of doodling things arent looking like how you imagine them in your head. Or maybe youre a college student whos wondering why the colours in your paintings arent coming out right. Maybe youre an older fellow or lady whos dabbling in art and youre having trouble with drawing hands. Whoever you are and whatever your problem, you all have something in common;A concise guide on how to get better at art6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You want to get better at representational art.
Here on deviantart its often the case where a noobie will ask a question and another noobie will answer with the very uninspired answer of "practice practice practice." At its core this advice is sound, but the noobie-teacher has just regurgitated what he or she has heard a thousand times over from other would-be noobie-teachers and has not expressed much else. Diligence is the key, but without a direction or goal this diligence might be

A Few Personal Tips on Becoming a better ArtistSo yeah i've been thinking about trying to write some personal tips on how to become a better artist for abit now.A Few Personal Tips on Becoming a better Artist7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Being sincere, i still believe i have along way to go to reach and also am not eligible to give such tips, but thought that it might clarify a few things for myself first and help others out there as well
And mostly these tips are for fine arts in general and a few types of illustrations.
1 - TAKE RISK: cannot express how important it is, if i can summarize all the tips in one, it would be that one. Think about it, you play all your life safe, you do what you are customed to do, you live in the same repeating cycle. and when it comes to art, we usually do the same thing. We do what we are good at, so if we are good at drawing realism we stick to it. Taking risks is a major MAJOR step in becoming a better artist, in taking risks you'll discover new things, you;'' surprise yourself, you'll understand better the medium and its capacity.

Second, I know I went missing for about two months but I'm hoping that things will start slowing down again so I can work on comics and other art-related things. I have a bunch of tm Comics lined up since... 4 months ago... and I'm hoping to actually work on them soon (Along with StupidFox, of course). But mainly during these past two months, I've been doing a lot of sketching and going back on working with old mediums.
Warning: This is a Beginning of a Rant
Recently, I've realized that I do not have as much time to work on art as I did one year ago. And I l

May 2013 - 31 day PAINTING challenge!UPDATE:May 2013 - 31 day PAINTING challenge!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This challenge was certainly a great experience for me. I made some mistakes that cost me a lot of time, for example sometimes I spent 5 hours on a piece that turned out wrong and instead of moving on I took a new paper and tried to make new work within the remaining hour or so. During second week, I've decided to keep the scrap works a part of my challenge, even though I won't publish them they still appear as a thumb on my challenge table. It's simply not possible for me to do 7 good pieces sometimes. Also, posting every day took way too much time to keep up, so I've decided I will be publishing remaining artworks through June continuously.
What I learned during this project of mine? It gave me a better idea about how much time I spend on one piece and what amount of time I waste on post-production. I had to make a few arrangement that hopefully make me more effective today. But mostly, I've tried new subjects that I totally LOVE, mostly architecture and flow

But first I want to thank my now co-founder for all the help in managing the group! Thank you so much!
Now for the contest theme: MAGICAL WOODS - The spirit of nature.
Since it's our first contest we thought it should be something about our groups' name. So create a creature that you think stands for nature. A spirit that's either a guardian of nature or maybe represents nature itself. You can be quite free in the design. It can be a dragon, an elf, a pegasus or unicorn, well in fact any creature you think fits best as a spirit of nature.
Here some basic rules for the contest:
- You have to be a member of MagicalWoods.
- Your entry must have a background, not just some splashes of color.
- Please no mature content or too much violence.
- You can submit up to two entries, though you cannot win two prizes. S
