About male anatomy...It's been A TON OF TIMES that I get the same question:About male anatomy...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"How do you draw male anatomy? Could you give me some tips?"
I will be honest: I don't know!! I can tell the way it all started though.
My sister's a doctor, and she bought Sobotta anatomy atlas, drawn by AWESOME doctors and artists. The edition she bought has got two HUGE books full of medical illustrations of bones and muscles, very detailed veins, tendoms, with sections, skinned corpses, etc. I got totally fascinated and I started to study myself but I was not good enough to draw all those things I learnt.
Then, I had one year of anatomy classes at my art studies in the University. My teacher was just BRILLIANT. He really loves human bodies and he gave us the best tips possible (and he likes manga/anime!!). We visited real life corpses so I could understand better how muscle insertions and tendoms worked. Then, the teacher asked us to draw like... 200 works in 9 months. It was CRAZY and I hated him too much. B
Need help for the background?many people have asked for help with the backgrounds.Need help for the background?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
as a request is a bit vague! it's not like the human body or an animal..
the background is .. is .. the fucking universe!
cities, mountains, seas, forests, are a combination
of elements ALWAYS different :iconexploding-headplz:
I have not received help for these things..
I learned watching pictures and drawings in the last 2 years!
you have to watch thoooousands of landscapes and store them in your
"mental-database" to be able to invent new personal backgrounds.
it works with the perspective and the composition too!
observe and learn from the experience of others.
a sort of osmosis.
if you need pictures or inspiration I recommend this site
I love it..it's absurd.. sometimes I become depressed because
is too epic.. :iconrazycryplz:
but then I react and I try to improve!:iconlazymacho2plz:
then..if you need more specific help I can try to do

Sorry for taking while to give a result. It was a wonderful but hard time for me to choose top 5 since everyone seems like music theme. We have more entries than usual challenges and actually the most wonderful thing is quality of all entries are growing up. Isn't it amazing? I was so excited to see them all, therefore if you have time, please take a look at whole entries since I am sure you can find several great artists there to watch: http://hellobaby.deviantart.com/favourites/47401935
(BTW, if I miss any entries in the challenge fav folder, please tell me since sometimes I forget to add it in while I am watching them around. Thank you,)
Also look at them make me wish I could choose more, not only top 5. Yeah, it has been a really hard time to pick top 5 only (sorry, I wish I could pick more):
If you didn't make it, please don't be so upset, other challenge

This journal I decided to make it helpful. (hopefully) ^^
If you like to paint digitally, it doesn't matter what program you are using.
As long as it is functional enough for you, and you enjoy painting when you use it. ^^
I love to try all painting programs, it's like exploring!
Though we already know that Photoshop, Painter and Sai are great, but there are free ones
that good enough to create artwork as beautiful as those programs. ^^
Many times that I randomly posted about them but this time I want to collect them all here!
So it will be convenient for you all to check and compare them.
What I can say is that I'm grateful and appreciate those creators who spent their time and hard working and share them to us.
That's why I want to support and share them to you all!

New Username Symbols: Extended ThoughtsTwo weeks ago, we released two new products – deviant and art Mentions and new username symbols. Gratefully, and as we'd hoped, many deviants are embracing these changes in exactly the ways we'd anticipated, and the ways we ourselves did over the past several months of testing. While some deviants embraced the changes, it's fair to say that others have felt surprise, curiosity, and maybe even shock. These feelings are totally normal, but for the large part, there's a hope present. A positive outlook. The first steps in a new era that makes the way for our goals in the future, and, at the same time, removes clutter and confusion that new deviants often experience.New Username Symbols: Extended Thoughts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As with any change, there are a handful of deviants that don't understand why we made the choices we did
Lance Armstrong = EPIC WINI'm frankly tired of all the little bitches in the media yapping away in their over the top outrage about Lance Armstrong's asshole behavior. It's so fashionable to hate Lance these days. Really, is this guy really supposed to be THE one we all should hate? Everyone on TV is telling you so. Well, do you?Lance Armstrong = EPIC WIN3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just realized that I don't hate him nearly as much as all these wishy washy assholes pretending like they wouldn't do it if they had the chance. The deal? Train as hard as you can. Dope and lie about it. Win the shit. Get $100M of personal fortune, and raise a few hundred millions for charity.
Everyone condemning Lance for lying has lied numerous times, probably even that same day. The difference? He had the the balls the size of Jupiter and Saturn to take it it to its logical conclusion, and the perseverance and tenacity to win seven Tour de Frances. He's an asshole, no doubt. However, the other thousands of cyclists who doped came nowhere near accomplishing that type of feat. Keep

WELL THERE MY BELOVED FANARTISTS FRIENDS BE CAREFUL FOR THERE IS A FACEBOOK PAGE THAT REFUSES TO GIVE YOU CREDITS FOR YOUR HARDWORK JUST BECAUSE THEY SIMPLY FOUND IT ON GOOGLE!!!
ISN'T THAT NICE???
Well now, seriously
I follow some facebook pages.
To tell you the truth I follow the ones that credit artists for their work, because I find it nice to click on the link they provide of their galleries and almost die of happiness seeing other wonderful artworks from the same person on their own site.
But yesterday a Saint Seiya Page I follow had a funny comic stolen by a famous Anime Page on Facebook. The ADMs claim they found it on google already the way it was. Without the SSpage logo. And they put their logo on that comic, posted on their page as if it was theirs. Because seriously, when you put your logo on a work you found on internet you are automatically saying IT IS YOURS! And, of course
#$@%ed up things I've noticed living in Europe...Now that I've been in the EU for over a year I feel that the time has come to gripe and make sweeping generalizations about y'all...#$@%ed up things I've noticed living in Europe...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. In Europe "The Customer is Always Wrong". What blows my mind is that the smaller the business, the more they subscribe to this attitude. You would think that with everyone whining about the poor state of the economy, stagnant incomes, skyrocketing inflation, etc that small businesses would go out of their way to satisfy and thereby keep their customers... but no. Here its all about giving the evil eye and the grumpiest service to anyone who walks in the door, and knife-fights-to-the-death over returns or warranty claims. I never thought I'd say this but I really miss Wal-Mart.
2. Stores charge you for free 'Bonuses'. Manufacturers throw out bonus items/larger size bottles/free samples, etc intended as a free buying incentive for customers. Here they mark that $#!% up as if the manufacturer intended it as a bonus for the retailer. Yo

$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 cheap3 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.
