Say hi to SenshiStock.com!
This is a really simple, small site to start but I have bigger plans for it! For now, it's a place where you can go to purchase advance downloads of unreleased stock, or to buy the USB drive. It's also a central hub for SenshiStock social media. The biggest of thanks goes to Steve Forde for his quick implementation of the site!
There are four packs available for advance download right now: Bird's Eye, Fans, Monster, and the collab shoot with Sinned-angel-stock (more about that one below). The packs will rotate throughout the year allowing you access to different types of stock. These are all stock images that will eventually be available in the gallery for free, but your purchase now allows you early access to them and helps support the creation of more stoc
New contest? Yes! Event-tan, GO!Wow guys!New contest? Yes! Event-tan, GO!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After the overwhelmingly positive response I've gotten yesterday on the question of the event-tan contest, I just couldn't help but make this official ASAP! So here it is! Officially announcing the winter 2012-2013 event-tan contest!
So, here's the rules: If you've got an idea... GO FOR IT! If you have any doubts about if your idea would be accepted or not, just ask here, and I'll be glad to tell you if it's ok or not.
So, first off... what IS an event-tan? Well, remember our object-tan contest from last summer? (If not, check out the old blog posts, and the submission folder.) Well, same concept, except this time, instead of anthropomorphizing objects, we're doing the same thing to events.
Now that we've cleared THAT out of the way... what IS an event? Well, quite simply, a little bit of anything. It can be Christmas or new year's, it can be the holidays in general, it can be birthdays, first kiss, the Mayan apocalypse (or just the apocalypse in general even), the winter sol

Top Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring IllustratorsI wrote this thing. If you want to repost it on your blog or journal, please credit me with: Article by illustrator Kristina Gehrmann - www. mondhase.deTop Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring Illustrators2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Selling yourself as a beginner
I found a prime example of this in a forum for artists seeking work. The thread title was „Starting-out artist looking for a chance",, and the thread told that the artist is „looking for a client for whom I may draw" and has „just graduated from art college".
We all were at this point once, but usually it takes too long to realize that „beginner" is the wrong mindset, even if you are one. Such statements sound like excuses and are guaranteed to weaken your position. Don't make excuses. Do not justify your work, and do not justify your prices. This is a tricky habit to acquire since we're not very confident by nature, but remember the image you wan

-What program i use? I use Blender 2.49
-Can you teach me? No, I have no time. and you can learn by yourself, as I did.
-Can you do to my character in 3d? My answer for that would be "get lost idiot" or "I give a shit for your idea" anyway, i always say "nothing is free".
With some people, I can see, they want to learn, and they have trouble finding good tutorials. or they simply do not want to put the ass into the seat to learn, anyway, MAKE THE TRY, ANYONE CAN DO IT WITH TIME AND EFFORT
I ask my friend :iconAoiMew: and she has a couple of good videos about Blender and its version 2.62. Even an idiot could learn to use blender after watching these videos:

Being HumbleDear, deviantart fellow artists,Being Humble4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Have you ever felt .. not good enough?
That anxious feeling that is always there. No matter how hard you try, there are those thoughts of - "I'll never be as good as that particular artist" or "I'll never reach that skill level" or "nobody likes me and why am I even trying" etc.
BUT you know what - that feeling of humble never really goes away. And you have to deal with it. Now and for the rest of your life.
Everyone starts from somewhere and to develop your skills and learn more - you have to do the hard work of studying and becoming better at what you love to do every single day. There is no other way. ( & we become by doing)
And don't just sit there and feel sorry about yourself - it won't solve the problems. Inner doubts can affect your productivity and willingness to do anything - leading to being disappointed, but not able to do anything about the situation. Don't wait for things t

10 ways to improve fasterDear, deviantart fellow artists10 ways to improve faster1 month ago in Personal More Like This
As artists we seek for constant improvement. We learn, we strive for perfection, we fail and we keep doing things we love to do - here are my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Take notes
If you read something useful and inspirational - write it down. In journal, sketchbook - anywhere. Sketch something, put some lovely quotes - the information you'll see on tutorials, books and articles. You can't remember everything, so if you take notes and write the most meaningful things and then look through them - you'll learn more effectively.
2. Get out of the comfort zone
Learn something new with every new artwork you make. Challenge yourself, don't be afraid to study new things and push the boundaries of what you know. It feels so safe in

Working in SAI
- Alt+spacebar+dragging the cursor will rotate your canvas.
- Hold the spacebar and drag your cursor to move around the canvas
- Hold Ctrl+Alt, and you can change your brush size without having to go back to the brush panel
- If you go to View > New (It's on the top menu) and you can have another instance of your file open (Example)
- If you click a layer thumbnail and hold Shift, and it will select everything on that layer.
- Layer clipping! Color in all your bases, and then keep all the messy shading on a separate layer and click the "clipping group" option, and it will all neatly erase it self outside the lines
- Press H to flip your image. This makes it easier to weed out mistakes.
- It makes your life a lot easier if you organize your layers into folders!!!

- Try to keep shading subtle! Don't go

So I have been thinking of doing a few articles apart from feature articles to link some useful resources for artists and this is the first one of these. While this is a mini one, it's helped me a lot on several occassions.
Sometimes it gets confusing to decide which colours to choose. "'Should I go with a turquoise and a gold for the face? What about the room? I was going for a chic cool modern palette which is minimalistic!" Surely, a lot of us have gone through those decisive moments. Below are some colour scheme tools that would help you with your colour scheme choices. Click the titles or the links in asterisk to go to the following sites.
