Back with a bang and CONTEST

Fri May 18, 2012, 10:09 PM

DREAMORCHID Updated journal on the contest.  Midnight tonight pacific coast time, start wrapping them up if you want in. :la:

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 (, official DreamOrchid face book page (…), and even a twitter account.  Please feel free to like us if you wish.  With all this said I'm back with a bang.  I decided since I hit 20k views and with the renewal of a subscription to throw a contest.  If anyone wishes to donate prizes to the list please send me a note and I'll add your prizes.  Yes you can donate prizes and still enter.  DreamOrchid's team members will be the judges of your beautiful pieces of work.  


The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature.  A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character.   You can do either evil or good.  Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone).  Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game.  I really would like to see originality in this and I'm excited to see what people can come up with.  If it looks like Peter Pan and Tinkerbell that's not being original. All work also must be yours.  Yes you can have a collaboration with another artist as long as they're listed too.  The deadline will be July 18th.   We don't mind  less then conservative outfits but please keep nudity down.  Entries also have to be new entries on Deviant Art.  When you submit your art please link this contest in your description of it and send me a note on it so I can add it to the feature area and fav.

Example scenes:
A bustling street in a dwarven town
An elf archer stalking its prey
An orcish blacksmith at work
A lizardman caravan
A dark elven alchemist at work
A feline hybrid human at play in a field of tall grass
A heard of Pegasus grazing
A human attempting to train a dragon
A bar brawl with a Minotaur
A human militia fighting a troll
A shady pub where dark dealings happen
A castle siege
An elven castle in the distance as a stranger looks upon on it.
A female warrior in full plate armor being cheered on by the crowd from winning the battle.
A church scene with a priest proceeding over an arrange marriage between a human and an elf.
Dark castles with black dragons flying above.
A fairy village with a fairy returning home.
A sea battle with pirates and sea creatures.
A Mermaid discovering a human (mermaid does not have to fit the usual mermaid look)

Of course, these are just suggestions and you can take it any direction you want.
A twist could be to draw a character, and then what that character is looking at.  We also LOVE cities,  architecture, landscapes, and fantasy woods.

1st PLACE:
Dreamorchid78 will pay out $200 or 16,000 points
DraconaVampira2 Semi-Realism drawings of up to 3 characters each, and 1 Full Body fully shaded with detailed background of 1 character. (3 pictures all together)

2nd PLACE:
Dreamorchid78 will pay out $100 or 8,000 points
DraconaVampira A Full body fully shaded with detailed background of up to 2 characters, and 1 Half body fully shaded with detailed background. (2 pictures together)

3rd PLACE:
Dreamorchid78 will pay out $50 or 4,000 points

Tutorials and techniques

Thu Jul 7, 2011, 5:07 PM
Quite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.
Hope you find my collection useful!

MLP:FIM Style Pony Video tutorial Part 1

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 18, 2012, 4:09 PM
My Gallery My webcomic/manga My Tumblr My thanks to you all My Twitter

So I finally got around to fixing up the video.


If you decide to start drawing, keep in mind that your not going to be great at it when you first try. Believe me I couldn't draw ponies to save my life, but I keep at it and look at me now.

Don't give up, as long as you keep it up you'll soon be drawing ponies in no time. Also don't treat art as a chore, have fun with it.

Also use References to help you out, don't be ashamed to use them. Also check out this link for helpful pony anatomy sketches…

Also please read this journal
Some Tips For Young ArtistsSince Equestria Daily is doing their Artist Training Grounds and many young artists out there are starting to feel their oats, I thought it'd be a good time to get some of these thoughts out on the internet, for no other reason than to reference them when I'm asked about art advice later. If you're going to try a hoof at drawing, there is a wealth of information available to you out there. Instead, I'll try to make a note of some of the things that very few art tutorials seem to mention.
1) Almost anyone can draw - yes, even you. Anyone with full command of a hand or two can draw. When you start, your drawings will not be great, but they will satisfy you. Keep going. That stodgy old advice about the thousand bad drawings is true. We don't admire well-rounded artists for being prodigies; we admire the effort they've put into honing their craft. Don't expect to develop quickly; take your time and pace yourself. Anyone can draw, but only the patient and tenacious can draw really well.

It may be long but it will help you understand what every artist goes through, so your not alone.

My best tip for you is, never give up, attempt to draw something at least once a day, don't get discourage. You can do it, but you have to try first.  

Happy Drawing, stay strong everypony/everybody.

This is for you DashieFan1(from and the rest of the people reading my little story.

So yeah the next chapter in "All that is Fair Part 1" has been taking some time to complete. I am going to tell you why, it has been taking so frakkin long.

I last updated the story back in December during my last winter break from college. By last I mean that as the last winter break of my undergraduate career. After that I focused on completing my senior thesis. That included completing my experiments and writing up the results,write a grant, and I also prepared three different presentations of my work. This took me to Graduation at the end of May.

I know I should have put my story on Hiatus but I was scared that I would lose some you. I didn't complete drop the story I would work on it here and there. Then I had a little bit of time before my family, friends and fiancee showed up so I reviewed what i had done in those five months. To make it short I didn't like what I had written for the next Chapter. So I spent the last month rewriting it all.

As it stands right now I have complete all rewrite for what I had done and it in a form I can agree with. It only leaves two final since until it is complete and then it is off to my editor so you all can read it easily.

Also my style of writing is a bit different. I don't just sit an type it all out on a computer in the first go. I write down the rough draft in a note book. Then I type it up make adjustments as I go. It take a bit longer for me to produce the works. It allows me to revisit my work so it can be the best it possible can be.

Also I worked on a few pieces of art work (as you can see her on DA) and I also got a bunch of ideas for stories, a tumblr, and something big (More on that later. Check my Deviantart for those updates).

One other thing. Life has been slapping me about. My family has been keeping me busy and so has the hunt for a job for last month.

Thanks for patients and readership. I hope to get it to my editor soon. It should be out to you by the turn of the month.

Thanks for reading my long winded rant. Now time to get back to work.
