Without my mother, there wouldn't be an artist named Zelda C. Wang
She is everything to me. Recently she has been diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer and several other health problems. It's overwhelming and highly stressful for her, yet instead of concerning about her health, she worries about the medical expense more...
My mother raised three kids by herself, but never complained about her

How to become a better colorist?Hey guys and girls. Today something especially for you. Some useful tips from coloring artist.How to become a better colorist?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you asked me about tutorial. I really wanted to write one but they are so time consuming.
So let's start.
1. Make good flats at the start. Use polygonal lasso tool in Photoshop and then Paint bucket tool, it's the most accurate method. Filling areas with brushes is wrong, believe me. You will swear to gods and scream out loud trying to later fill all these tiny holes you didn't notice white painting flats with brush.
Of course don't stick to this advice too much. If you have a bunch of tiny elements it's obvious that it's better to color them with hard brush than to use lasso, especially the polygonal one
My way of doing flats is to make every particular color/character on a separate layer. For example, having two girls, sky and clouds in the picture, I make 3 groups: background, girl1, girl2. Then in each group I make layers for: sky, clouds, skin, hair, shirt, jeans... etc. May look

TUTORIAL - Tips for All ArtistsHello everyone!TUTORIAL - Tips for All Artists1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have written a tutorial like this before here. But recently I have had more thoughts about it that I decided to share. As you may have noticed, I am not a professional artist, I am a hobbyist and self-taught, and what I will expose here is what I've learnt from my own experience. Even so, I hope this tutorial will be helpful to you!
Another note: English is not my first language, so I apologize if I commit any mistakes.
Feel free to correct my grammar any time, as well as make suggestions or asking questions!
This tutorial is for every kind of artist, but sometimes I will focus more on visual artists (since it's my speciality).
I believe that everyone can be an artist, and this tutorial has not only the purpose of providing advices and tips, but also motivation for all.
1. Your Image as an Artist on dA
2. Your Image as an Artist outside dA
3. Your Popularity
4. Your Art Process

I joined Deviant Art I few years back bright eyed and hopeful. I tried to show case some talent I felt I had and over a period gained a handful of friends. Like most folks in the last several years the hard times came and with that I slowly faded away from this friendly art community. With some help from friends we reopen DreamOrchid's doors with a new website (www.dreamorchid.com), official DreamOrchid face book page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/DreamOrchid/189645937780364), and even a twitter account.

Please do not join my contests if you are a sore loser and will complain if you do not win! I am getting very tired of seeing people complain and hate themselves for not getting a placement, I dislike people fishing for symapthy. There are a lot of people entering my contests and not everyone can win. I like to give out high prices which means less places. Drawing should be fun and not just to earn some prizes. Thank you!

Race against me!
I am entering our TB stallion, Maroq, in at least 1 race each week through out August.
It is easy to enter, a flat colored headshot is enough to be in the race.
All breeds and ages are welcome, so you can enter even if you're not normally a racing stable.
Can your horse beat our stallion to the finish line?
If you win over Maroq and get 1st in any HARAE race in August, I'll draw you a winner's portrait for free!
Challenge #2 for June 2012:
Break in your horses.
How often do you just draw your horse with rider, trotting along perfectly, and then that horse is broken in a can be ridden?
How often do you spend time (and art) on introducing your youngster to a saddle, bridle, walk them with a rider and slowly build them up as riding horses being schooled etc? How often do you start your jumping horse of by trotting over cavalettis and small jumps? Ho

$2.50 healthy meal for the poor or cheapIt's a well-known fact that people with lower income levels in the West generally have a poor diet. That is one of the major factors which determines their lower life expectancy, and poorer general health. The big question for me is 'why'?$2.50 healthy meal for the poor or cheap2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am a cheapskate, and often times enjoy eating cheap food. I am also a health and fitness nut, so the food I eat must be healthy. I have a genetic predisposition to being overweight, but I have around 6% body fat due to my diet and exercise routine. For reference, my deviant ID below is probably just over 10% body fat. I am also lazy, so cooking for a long time is out of the question. Turns out that all of these conditions are easily satisfied.
Let's suppose you are poor and you have a minimum wage job. I'll give you a brief outline about how to feed yourself for ~$10 for a whole day with just about the healthiest food you can eat for ANY amount of money. That's right, you can eat better than your neighbor making over a hundred grand.

We did way too much stuff for me to recap all of it, but here are a few quick things I bet you don't know about Japan:
1. The crosswalk is referred to as "the zebra zone"
2. French fries are both a breakfast option as well as a fancy dinner choice at buffets
3. Slurping your noodles is considered to be good manners. If you eat them silently, the host assumes you don't like it
4. There. Are. No. Public. Trashcans. Anywhere. Not even in restaurants or public bathrooms. I had to keep all of my wrappers and empty soda cans in my purse, and it started turning really gross near the end of the trip q.q

My first contest! Hopefully people can join and make me happy! First off, no. You do not need to be a watcher of mine to participate! This contest is free-for-all on the condition that you follow my rules! But please note you won't get journal updates if you don't watch me, so you could miss something important!
You won't be judged on how well you draw the Teacup, or the original character, just the OC design! The idea behind the Teacup is that is the size of the Original Character! All I care about is the design so I'd love any artist of any ability and media to be able to join and share the talent they hold with me!
No design theft, or stolen art. I will be checking all entries. If you use stock, please, please state! I don't mind any use of stock as long as it does not violate the users policies.
