Christmas RPGermany was at a holiday party. He didn't know why he had decided to come... Parties weren't really his thing. He sighed, sipping a little bit of soda-- he knew he couldn't take the alcohol without going insane for more. He looked around the room, wanting to join in on the fun, but not wanting to lose his pride, or make himself seem stupid or weak-- he wasn't going to give any blackmail opportunities to anyone...Christmas RP2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Or so he thought.
You saw him alone. For whatever reason, you walked over to him. He slowly tuned to you and you noticed mistletoe over your heads. He didn't, though.
What do you do?

For my Christmas Eve, I got to go visit my grandfather in the hospital. I couldn't hug him because I'm sick and we don't want him getting worse, but he grabbed my hands from a distance and squeezed them, and I told him Merry Christmas in Italian c': He had to abruptly go to the ER a few days ago, so it was nice to see him healthier. He's been really under the weather for a couple months and been having all these issues breathing.
My zio's girlfriend gave me a little bonsai tree after dinner, it's so cute! My Nonna gave me art materials, and a calendar with pictures of Italy. Part of the art materials were some copic markers, and they're the perfect colors for drawing HRE w@

Some Advice for young Artists:I've been asked many questions about drawing tips and here are a few:Some Advice for young Artists:2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Draw all the time.
Draw from life.
Draw from your heart.
Draw in your spare time.
Always have pencils on you.
Draw the stuff you're worst at until you are the best at it.
Draw whatever you want! That's what's so great about art. You can draw or paint or sculpt or sing or dance or be anything.
Study the masters (Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Bernini, etc.). They knew what they were doing.
Read reference books.
Just read for fun.
If you have art block draw through it.
And if that doesn't work (sometimes) find something else creative to do until the block goes away.
Draw all the time.
I draw for HOURS a day, even if it's just doodling. And someone asked me, "Is that really true? If you practice, you'll get better?"
HECK YEAH YOU WILL.
I honestly can say (as most artists would) practice will literally lead you down the road to improvement, and don't ever be discouraged. Improvem

"Kiriban" is a word that lots and lots of people use, especially here on Deviantart. Get the pageview hit, get a gift. however...
most people in general know what it is, but not what it means -> http://forum.deviantart.com/devart/general/977173/
-3- me being Japanese myself wanted to find out the origin of
this term and what it actually mean so I did a nice amount of searchin.
first I found this googled:
"Kiriban is the Japanese term (Kanji: キリ番 ) for web counter special"
but that doesnt really help to understand the meanig
so I googled "キリ番":
and found out that キリ番 is actually a shorten version of「きりのいい番号」
so... for this, キリ would mean "cut" and "きりのいい" would mean "well cut"
「きりのいい番号」would then literally mean- "a we

Well, we can't be all born with mad talent. But there are certainly ways to speed up the process for you!

Give up on being a mangaka -- or hold more realistic expectations
Admit it. Most of us here started drawing manga because we liked the style at a certain point. How awesome would it be to one day become a pro in that field. A real manga artist (or mangaka, like they say in Japan)! The truth is... becoming a mangaka isn't that easy. It it were, many more people would be one. First of all, mangaka's live in Japan. That's the only country with a manga industry big enough to actually ha

I'm not asking for everyone to go back to my stuff and dig out random deviations to critique, but from now on I'm seriously going to

7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better ArtistPractice, practice, practice. Gah.7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better Artist3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.
