This week is traditional art week with projecteducate ! If you like traditional art, I strongly advise you to look at their blog, there will be lots of nice articles and tips this week. You can find the summary here :
My small contribution will be to participate to the feature and feedback contest, to which you can also participate by checking it out here :
I'll seize the opportunity to present you with my collection of hands… because what would we do without them ? Probably not traditional art anyway !
First I will share with you the impact that the drawing of a single hand can have.
Amazing details, colors and shadows on this hand, capturing a very simple and daily gesture a lot of us have done : putting our hair away from our face… Simple and strong.

The deadline for the contest has been pushed back the 16th of July 12pm GMT. This is the last extension. Please plan accordingly.
Hello! After some deliberation I've decided it is time to hold my first contest. It's going to be based on my story and original characters. The theme is spring. You are free to interpret this time in any way you choose.
My story is set in a contemporary Dublin, but in an alternative timeline where magic is possible. Visually, this means the world has been influenced by different historical periods as the supernatural world seems somewhat more archaic than its technolog

Cities of the Future
By istickboy, Truepicturesinc
Metropolis KL 2210 by skian-winterfyre
What do you think your favorite city will look like in one hundred years?
Architect Rem Koolhaas has completed a “vertical city” complex in Rotterdam, bringing a new style of multi–purpose skyscrapers to the city skyline. Bennett Stein wrote about the new buildings for KCRW’s Design & Architecture blog, calling the creator “the Godzilla of architecture.”
Here’s an excerpt from Stein’s essay:
My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.My Two cents on Portfolio Reviews3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.
Your portfolio should be a r

you and your doubt made sure of that.
yet pathetically, there's not much I wouldn't have wanted to do
do not get the wrong impression.
spineless or effeminate i was not.
naive and impulsive, perhaps.
a poor investor, definitely.
melancholia has made me limp,
i'm numb with regret,
and despite my anger, i have somehow been left cold.
the words i try to put together don't appear to make sense.
they don't join as intimately as the two they refer to did.
they're meant to reflect how i, more than anything, crave happiness
just not necessarily for us anymore.
XXXX GIVEAWAY CLOSED XXXX :iconkiwikku:XXXX GIVEAWAY CLOSED XXXX2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I think now's a great time to start the giveaways back up again- first with small ones, but building up to bigger and better ones in the future! It's always fun to give back to the people who gave me so much..
Welcome to the first in a series of weekly giveaways by Kiwikku / Moomin-Man
These giveaways are FREE to join and require no points to enter!- lotteries are not allowed on dA.
However, this giveaway is very special- and very sad.
A few weeks ago, I heard about the touching story of whisperwings, which inspired me to create a brand new arts endowment to help get smaller artists known- please read the full story here:
And there's more.
I've created a new group to give more people a boost-
This group's purpose is simple: Great artists, some with amazing art- don't get noticed because they have little to no watchers. I want to change that. And you can help. How?

Design Contest! CLOSEDHello, everyone! >w< I have another contest for you! ^o^/Design Contest! CLOSED3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The contest is design-based, and the theme is Nature's Twins
What is 'Nature's Twins'?
It is a small series that I draw. It consists of a human and animal counterpart bearing similarity in designs/physical traits.
Here are some examples:
(These are merely examples, as mentioned below, you will be expected to design your own human/animal counterparts ^^ )
The goal is to design either a human or animal (or both, if you would like) as part of the Nature's Twins series.
For example, you can draw a person with a unique design and describe what kind of animal you had in mind in the artist's description, or vice versa. If you would like to do both the person and animal, that is more than welcomed!
Please take note that these designs are expected to be fullbody!
The deadline will be set at January 31st!

Why now? Well... I’ve just come back from Lucca Comics & Games - the best and biggest comics, games and cosplay fair we have in Italy. It reminds me when I was there last year and I had a bad car accident on my way back home. I don’t know how to describe it correctly in english.. my car got hit by a very big jeep from behind, the thrust was so intense it made my car tip over and land on the car in front of me, then rebounded several times on the road crashing sides of the car and the roof of my (at this point destroyed) vehicle. Fortunately I didn’t get any serious injuries, but I had to rest in bed for one month and for four months I have been away from fairs and events …
But - hey - I’ve been lucky, I'm still here, and back in action! Isn
