Frequently Asked Questions
Now listen up, I learned all of this from reading tutorials on the internet, so there's no reason why you shouldn't do the same! That's what you do when you want to learn a new skill, you read about it! So instead of being asked, here is some reading to do. Now READ IT!! Also, tutorials for BJD face ups apply to plastic/vinyl dolls most of the time, so you can read about both of them.
What do you use to remove the makeup?
I use Winsor & Newton Brush Cleaner I'm sure there are fine alternatives. Some people use nail polish remover-I tried it once a

Tips to improve our artwork♣ Hard working - constantly practice even when we don't want to draw.Tips to improve our artwork3 years ago in Personal More Like This
♣ Learning from others artists - no matter who is it, from beginner to master, we can always learn something from them.
♣ Learning from audience - carefully consider comments from other people, their opinions are valuable.
♣ Accept our own weak points - though it is so hurtful, look for them - try improving them instead.
♣ Always be a beginner - there are many things beyond than we have ever realized. Let's open our mind and learn new stuff.
♣ Don't waste your time on choosing tools - choose the appropriate materials - what we like the most is the perfect one.
♣ Only taking a break but don't give up - there are numerous obstacles that await for us in this path - confront and fight them!
♣ Basics are the most important part- then we can adapt to anything we want.
♣ Believe in ourselves - self-esteem needs to be added to ingredient in our work.

5%If you're reading this now, it means you're roughly in the 5%. Most people who go online to read about comics will end up reading previews and "top 10" lists--subjects we all, or course, enjoy. But the articles/blogs that critically analyze our industry are usually only read by two types: people in the biz whom are affected by this stuff, and the few readers who are interested in reading more than word balloons when it comes to comics.5%3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I'm not knocking people who don't care to read these articles. All readers are contributing to the industry with their buying power, and I'm thankful for them, even if they're not in the 5%. I admit, if I had a normal 9-5 job and a boss that was kicking my ass 5 days a week, I might not have the tolerance for these sorts of articles either.
That being said, I think we need more of these articles/blogs written from different points of view--more from creators especially. The 2010s will likely be r

I just finished up a 5 part comic writing tutorial run through on my blog and figured, since there are so many comic book fans and creative-types here, I'd post links to them here in case any of you might find them useful/interesting:
Part 1: Brainstorming
Part 2: Story Pacing
Part 3: Page Planning
Part 4: Scripting
Part 5: Dialogue
This isn't any kind of absolute-must-follow method, just the way I work and a few tips. If you found these posts helpful, feel free to let me know here (or on Twitter) and share the posts with your friends.

Update: Fair Exposure and Popular Browse Fair Exposure and miscategorizationUpdate: Fair Exposure and Popular Browse3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
On January 24th, 2012, we released an hq journal regarding Popular results for Browse. In this journal, we described Fair Exposure -- deviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results. Fair Exposure's goal is to showcase the most popular deviations in a variety of styles, genres, and art forms, without bias towards a particular topic.
Since the release of our Fair Exposure announcement, especially in the last handful of weeks, we've noticed a concerted, dedicated effort made by deviants, or groups of deviants, to specifically beat (or "game") the system. Deviations have been intentionally miscategorized in hopes of having them appear "higher" in Popular results. This has, rightfully so, resulted in complaints from deviants who submit to deviantART in a fair and honest manner.

Customizing your deviantART profileCSS has to be one of my favorite languages for coding on the computer. The way it works is essentially coding design. As a recent project for my web design class I created an American flag, without the use of any graphics at all. Even the stars were generated with code. You can view it here, and feel free to view the source code to see how I created it.Customizing your deviantART profile4 years ago in Personal More Like This

ARTISTS PLZ READ (esp.mangaartists)I just need to get out there,ARTISTS PLZ READ (esp.mangaartists)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
it's driving me nuts how many artists
give up doing art because of people or their situation.
So I wanna tell you my story, growing up and becoming an artist.
The reason I'm writing this out is because I really wanna be able to inspire, even if I'm not the greatest of artists.
I know for a fact, manga artists have much more hardship trying to become famous than painters and sculptor's etc.
Because there's just some idiots out there that think all anime is Sailer Moon, and who LOVES to control your life more than other people. Parents, friends w/e
My parents were very against the idea of me doing manga in the future, being famous and stuff.
It's childish, you're gonna be poor, you're gonna ruin your studies. My teachers weren't any better.
My real-life friends were either against, unsupportive or ignorant about doing manga art.
And being in my country with little population, that I can understand.
At this point, a lot of manga artists out there would give u

I think it's time I did a new contest! It's been a while since I've done one and I've come up with such an awesome Contest idea that I'd love for all of you to take part in!

What I will be doing with your characters, if you allow me, is drawing them with the rest of the crew, and eventually writing short stories about the crew of the SSV Zorya… because I secretly love writing xD When (and if) I do, then I'll be asking for your input, how to write the character and asking for any ideas yo

It doesn't feel that long - but in a few more years I'll have been on this site for half my life. Sheesh!
I've improved so much having an audience to show work to, even if the point of the work wasn't an audience - just having a platform from which I could do anything at all has been really amazing for me over the years.
And then... PMD-e... which has been a really tremendous learning experience for me (and others!), in so many ways. I don't want to turn this journal sappy or anything, but I've been lucky to have met so many people and have gotten the chance to help create a community with its ups and downs.
And... speaking of such...
I'll be making a journal later about the state of PMD-e right now - I know the updates have been sporadic, and this has been for a few reasons. I've been thinking about how to word things for a few days now, and I don't think I've quite gotten it yet.
Anyway, for those of you who've been around since
