Just 3 more weeks of suffer--- studying, and I'll be able to resume the commissions! I would right now but most of you might have noticed how I'm in a style crisis, and I don't want my stupidity to show on commissions.
And I also found myself procrastinating by randomly giving points to lovely people. I don't need points right now, and I'll give away the few I have slooowly. Stay tuned for next giveaways~
To participate, +fav the journal. Yeah, that's it. If you want to comment, well, that's really nice of you ;u;
This is not only for my watchers, hohoho. but if you want to take a look at my doodles, I'd be honor
How to improve as an artist.Hi guys,How to improve as an artist.3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I could start by talking about the basics, perspective and all that stuff but that's pretty much something you have to learn or know already, either in a school or self-taught.
One thing most people don't talk about nor understand is the answer to this question.
Do you blow through an image or do you draw, stop think, draw, stop think...etc?
Most of you already seen a professional working and he just blows through a white canvas and in 2 to 4 hours creates something original.
Obviously we aren't talking about fanart here. Because that is just copying someones else design/idea and you wouldn't have any problem, because the brain work is already there for you to go around, even if you gave it your personal touch, like I've done in some Macross stuff, it's just not that hard.
Fanart is a great area but for example I've done 3D work for games, I obviously didn't include my Macross fanart in the portfolio I sent to the hiring companies because that is a big no no.
One reason why fa

First 150 Comments will be featured! (CLOSED)Hello everyone!First 150 Comments will be featured! (CLOSED)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I decided to make an art feature.
First 150 comments will get an art feature! Why 150? Well, it's because our group just reached 150k page views!
What you'll do is comment your artwork, but you have to follow these:
Please comment only the best work, preferably, of course, anime-style and finished works (not sketches and WIPs). Cosplay photos and pixel icons are okay (though I can't resize pixel icons in sta.sh). :3
Only one comment per deviant! It makes my job easier, but I'll still check each because I want only one deviation featured per artist (so it's fair to everyone).
Please comment :thumbnails: instead of links. I'm fully aware that thumbs (images) don't work for non-premiums, but still please comment thumbnails, not links.
Thank you for your cooperation!
It's closed. I will post it any time this week (something came up so I need to change the sched). :3
Btw, I'm still thinking about wh

Calling all members...I wish I didn't have to say this..but we had another severe rule breaker, one of the worst we've had here at :icondrawanime: Some stole artwork from other deviants and used those pieces to enter our contest...this is beyond pathetic I'm sorry. I think it goes without question we DO NOT accept stolen artwork here, and neither do we accept members who steal artwork from other people. Those who are caught doing this, will be banned permanently from the group. Period. Thanks to all the wonderful people who did enter kindly, just thought I'd throw that out there if there was anyone else looking to steal work and try to pass it off as their own.
Edit - Since someone already broke the main rule of the contest, I just want to repeat to the other contestants: Your entry MUST be made specifically for this contest. It's okay to submit it to other contests, but the main one and the focus of you

PE: Fan Art vs Original ArtFan Art vs. Manga & Anime: The differencesPE: Fan Art vs Original Art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Many people have come to me in the past with questions regarding whether their work qualified as Manga & Anime or Fan Art, same happened with many Daily Deviations that were placed in the M&A gallery when they should have been submitted to the Fan Art Gallery, oops!
Do you have doubts regarding the submission process? Wonder no more, we'll unveil all the mysteries surrounding the categories! :iconokie2plz:
Fan art includes those artworks that are based on or contain material such as characters, settings, concepts or universes in general that are copyrighted to someone else other than the artist creating said Fan artwork.
Manga and Anime art, on the other hand, is home for all the artworks that artists have created from scratch and are not related to any preexisting universe nor contain any copyrighted material.

On Stolen Art and Art ThievesHello, everyone, lifeofthe6 here.On Stolen Art and Art Thieves2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last time I gave a little reminder on what can be submitted to this club, but what is just as important as what art comes into the club is who submits it.
I recently reported a user who was submitting stolen works as their own to this club (something they had been doing with multiple accounts for years, apparently) and their account was deactivated.
It made me think about how big this club is and how many art thieves may go unnoticed due to our numbers and the sheer volume of submissions. Just as I cannot scour every piece for "moe" quality, I cannot check the legitimacy of every submission, so I ask for your help.
If you ever see any artwork that you suspect of being stolen or otherwise in violation of copyright or ownership, please report it to deviantART staff after you make sure or have reason enough to believe the artwork does not belong to the submitter and/or they do not have permission to upload it. In addition, you can

100 Themes ChallengeMake 100ThemesChallenge a Super Group again! Give points.100 Themes Challenge5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every point helps!
What is the 100 Themes Challenge?
100ThemesChallenge is a group that aims to inspire artists with a challenge. Many artists suffer from artist block from time to time, and sometimes the best way to fix it is to appeal to the side of our nature that rises to a challenge. We hope to motivate artists of all types with themes, short prompts, and contests. 100 Themes Challenge simply gives artists a starting point... you go from there!
How does it work?
There are five variations, each with 100 themes. You can pick your favorite variation from the 5 pre-existing ones or mix and match themes from multiple variations. When you’ve decided which variation you’d like to work on, pick a theme and use it as inspiration to create!
You don’t have to go in order and there are no limitations on the medium (or mediums!) you
Useful Tips on DrawingI am an Art student myself so I cannot promise any genius suggestions, the following factors are some things I came up over the year of drawing. Here I wanna make them into a list so I can always come back to this and use it while I draw. Here i go~Useful Tips on Drawing4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first step of drawing. Start planning by setting the genre of the piece, do you want it to be animal? people? realistic? fantastic? mostly scenery? no background? color tone? black and white? landscape? portrait? You can even start with a name for the piece if it helps. Gather references for form and color. Do NOT copy any people's work. If you are using people's textures or brushes, make sure to credit them as they asked.
Never rush this part, take your time and assemble the elements into the drawing. Move, turn, stretch things around until they are just the way you like it. Avoid composition problems such as everything's-lined-up or all-squished-together. Try things like overlaying and perspe
