Here is my first ever article (one that's legit and proof-read several times that it's giving me a headache - and btw I suck at writing essays and such when I was in high-school, leave me be! XXD ^^) that talks about the importance of having a fundamental and visual understanding of how the human anatomy works for comics artists like myself. It is now added to my 'Making Comics' section which I hope will provide useful tips and suggestions to comic artists who want to improve on their craft!

Best way to record yourself drawing digitallyUpdate: Added section about CONVERTING video sessions below.Best way to record yourself drawing digitally4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Quick bit of help here, because I'm not sure if everyone knows the best way to handle this if you want to record your progress while drawing in Photoshop, Manga Studio, Painter, whatever.
IF YOU ARE USING WINDOWSYou may have tried some of the screen recorders out there like CamStudio, FRAPS, or some free ones out there. You may have noticed, or had become frustrated with, the fact that many of these programs cause a significantly huge hit on your system's performance. When you try drawing in Photoshop, your tablet response comes to a screeching halt. Then you find a program that records without impacting your drawing performance -- only to find that the resulting video recorded at about 1 frame every 3 seconds. Then you tried FRAPS, then found out that 4 minutes of video resulted in a 3.2GB file. All of these are less than ideal.
A while back, I searched all over the net for a program that encoded video from my screen

Sakura Micron multiliner
prismacolor fine line marker
Speedball super black India ink

It's a rough set up, and some combinations wouldn't make sense at all, but... maybe it bring you a good story? If you like to help to improve this, please, feel free to comment!
How does it work?
If you are familiar with the horse personality randomizer that Dane made together with some other DA'ers, then it's kinda in the same direction. You will see a couple of lists that together will make a guideline to draw something. Some combination absolutely do not make sense, but just click the random button again to make a better option.

So you want to go to an art school? The three things you're probably going to need to worry about most aside from academics and expect from most colleges are essays, letters of recommendation and your portfolio!
I have a class in school right now called Independent Senior Mentorship that everyone in my grade is supposed to take, and in the class we have to choose a career field we want to go into and get a mentor to teach you about that field (For anyone wondering, I choose animation and I got the CEO and Founder of Frederator Studios to be my mentor). The other requirement of the class is that we have to do a bunch of college research and get all of our applications turned in! So I've been going through a lot of different colleges and seeing if I want to apply and here's what I found. (Keep in mind, before this school year started I did next to no college research)

Horse Personality RandomizerCreditsHorse Personality Randomizer3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This randomizer was made by Hathien603, BaliroAdmin, and BVicius.
The original idea was to create this for the Horse Art RP Game on Deviantart - but it is free to use by others as well and for other purposes.
We do kindly ask for credit though.
Please link back to these journal's where possible, so others may find it as well.
Recently my husband frog357 took some free time and surprised me by announcing he had turned this into an automatically randomized generator. Please visit this link to view the automatic randomizer: http://arienequine.com/design/index.php?q=content/welcome-horse-personality-randomizer
Please let me know if you find any bugs or experience any issues.
Do not copy the content of this randomizer and claim it your own!
Please respect the people who put time into creating it.
Thank you ^^

Animution TipsI feel like making an animution tutorial, so everyone can animute!Animution Tips3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But I'm lazy. So you can have some small tips in journal form instead.
Tip One: Frames
'amg ur animution is so smoof wai can't i animute lyk u??'
Which animation looks better? 1 or 2?
Well why don't people animate like 1 then?
Frames! Add as many frames as damned well possible! Surely it's obvious what the difference is?
Don't make a cycle with 8 frames
Make a cycle with 16!
Does a bit of your animation look choppy? Add some inbetween frames!
Onionskinning, I do it all the time. (What's onionskinning? This!)
The reason one animation looks smoother than another is always down to the number of frames.
The framerate I like to use is 0.07 seconds.
That's 12.5 in Flash, 70ms in GIMP and 7 in Fireworks.
You should always stick to one framerate throughout your whole animation.
Nothing going on in your animatio

Thank you everyone for your help. I really appreciate it!
I found a super great help from M4dArtist, who gave me a super detailed instruction that answered all of my possible questions. Couldn't dream for more hahah.
I will go ahead trying out what she gave me there. Hopefully I'll have some vids to show you guys soon!
As many people have shown interest in seeing speedpainting/timelapse videos from me, I think I will try it out.
However I am not so sure which screen recording program I should use.
I want something that's easy to use, but on the other hand also have editing options, have no watermark and such.
I downloaded CamStudio installer, but it asked me to install many extra things that I obviously don't want to install. I just want to install the damn program. orz

They dont see your normal favs.
As well as this is great exposure for those artists that get their stuff faved, some people don´t want people to see their feitshes or the like!
HOW DO I DISABLE IT SO PEOPLE CAN´T SEE WHAT I FAV/COLLECT!?
Simply go you your Favs, then into your COLLECTION FOLDER

UPDATING ~ All plz ICONS are made by nattouh
Tutorials and techniquesQuite 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.Tutorials and techniques4 years ago in Personal More Like This
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.
WATERMARKS - how to make them work for youTheft of their art online is indeed artist’s greatest fear. The mere thought of finding someone’s paws all over your precious picture, the idea you painstakingly thought of, perfected, executed and uploaed in order to share in an art communnity, the thought of it being stolen for profit is horrible.WATERMARKS - how to make them work for you5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Indeed, there have been many internet sites that stole works of artists on dA and sold them as wallpapers, mobile phone screens and even prints. There have been a few big legal affairs with major corporations stealing artwork at very small resolution (800 px) and then, using their superior equipment, managing to employ it in all their advertising, and that’s just mentioning a few such situations.
Clearly, the need for protecting yor work exists, and no, most of us don’t think that “it would be our honour to be ripped off, it means we are good”.
We know we are good, and we accept appreciation in a form of faves, comments and print requests.
So, how d

Paint Tool SAI and TRANSPARENT .PNGVarious Paint Tool SAI users might have noticed it, me included, and it always bugged me a bit.Paint Tool SAI and TRANSPARENT .PNG4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently, SAI doesn't support .PNG transparency. Meaning, when you go and try to save an image supposed to have transparent areas, the picture still gets a white background.
To fix this, I and possibly other people used to save the project as .psd and load it in Photoshop or similar programs to save the file with the wanted transparent area.
Well, a quick search made me figure out that it instead DOES allow it, so I was wondering how.
After some research I figured out I was using version 1.0, which is extremely old and outdated, and it doesn't even feature transparency.
It looks like version
and superior are what allows png to have transparent area.
For some reason it doesn't have ink pen, which the old 1.0 had, but that's not a big deal since most of SAI tools are just the same brush with different settings.
So... I upgraded to

Did YOU Know that you can use the < font > tag in various custom boxes AND journals?
Well, yes you can! No Premium Membership REQUIRED!

When you're ready to move on, mouse over the "The Tag" section.
Did you enjoy the awesome presentation of the "Test." text above? Here's the source code to that:

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
