Awesome art VII + newsHi everyone!Awesome art VII + news2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a long time since I last posted a journal entry. Somehow I feel I needed to clear some things first before I can "allow" myself to do other things with a lower range of priority. There are in fact some news that I can share with you in this journal.
I will be doing a monthly awesome art feature rather than a weekly. Sometimes I might do two a month or so, depending on how much great art I come across in this community.
I've cut out every paper scan in my gallery that prior had a white background. Just to make life easier for you. Exceptions are two images that just were way too complicated for me to properly cut out, but aside from that you will be able to access all of the cut outs in a png format. I can tell you, it was a hell lot of work.
Now for art and this time, I'm gonna bring it to you a little differently.

Hope you've had an awesome fall so far. Counting this month, it's been half a year of submitting resources and textures for you guys. So far it's been an amazing experience and I have been getting great feedback from so many of you. Thanks to all of my watchers for your continuing support - it's what keeps me going. I wish you an inspirational october and a fun halloween (if you celebrate it). Until then check out these beautiful artworks that I've been liking this month:

Fantastic Stock and where to find it - Feature 16I’ve been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsFantastic Stock and where to find it - Feature 163 years ago in Art Features More Like This
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can’t provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I’m sure you’ll agree, just click on their deviation.

Challenging Yourself to Become a Better ArtistLike others here, I get asked a lot of questions about my art, my process, techniques, and my inspiration. One of the questions I get asked that makes me both smile and laugh is, "How did you get so good?" Half the time it's a rhetorical question, and the other half is people genuinely wanting to know how to get better at art.Challenging Yourself to Become a Better Artist5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The answer is deceptively simple: I challenge myself and maintain a positive attitude.
RISE TO THE CHALLENGE
Now you might say, "Well, everything I do is a challenge, I'm not that good yet." But that's not what I mean. Of course getting better at art is challenging, and even when you're what others might consider a master, art never stops being a challenge.
But what I'm talking about is specifically setting goals for yourself and taking on projects that you KNOW are going to make you struggle. The projects that you KNOW are going to make you want to give up and do something else.
I find that a lot of people sort of stick to a specific niche and never reall

your DD suggestionsHey fellow deviants,your DD suggestions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now that I have figured out a tiny bit of how my new position as a CV works, I will start awarding Daily Deviations to the general photography category. So please, send me your suggestions... I need some inspiration. If you find something that really stands out and you think it deserves a DD, send me a note with the subject titled "DD suggestion" along with the thumbnail of the deviation. I will take a look at it and maybe feature it. Don't be shy about sending your own photos either, if you think they are DD-worthy.
There are certain categories in the "photography" gallery that have a specific Community Volunteer in charge. If the photo you want to suggest falls in their categories, please send a note to them instead. Click here to see who is responsible for each gallery.

Sans serif — Italics & weights
In the previous article of the typography series I presented some of the basic principles of type design and we started designing a geometric sans typeface such as Futura. In this article we will expand that typeface and add italics and alternate weights. Or rather, I will show you how to design italics and briefly present how you can modify your regular weight typeface to create alternate weights rather than having to re-draw the whole letter.

Mastering TypographyMastering TypographyMastering Typography2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typography is a rather obscure field, which is quite odd because typography is in everything you read. As such, it’s very important for a graphic designer to know everything there is to know about typography and preferably also the history and anatomy of typefaces. Bad typography is usually only consciously noticeable by type geeks (like me), however even someone who knows absolutely nothing about typography will find text with bad typography harder to read. In this article you will learn some basic principles and features to advance your typography.
Before we have a look at the features to improve your typography we have to select the right software. A few features which will be discussed in this article can be used pretty much regardless of the software but for most things you have to use genuine design software, so a program like Microsoft Word won’t suffice. You can achiev

Provided to you by :iconmasterciel-bocchan: and :iconcult-clueless:
Alois is a boy who wears short shorts. Easy enough, but that's what you would think. When cosplaying as Alois, you want to make sure that your shorts are not reaching your knees. They have to be at least mid thigh or shorter. As for his stockings, they go above his knee and never touch his shorts. You'd be surprised how many people just wear black pantyhose.
Alois's ring is also on his right index finger, always~!
Now this is just a petpeeve of mine but when the shoes are just regular high top heels it bothers me. He wears boots!
