Tutorials and techniques 2It's time to refresh the tutorial journal! Added some new ones and removed those which, after some time, I found a bit misleading.Tutorials and techniques 22 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!
Poses, composition and perspective
Expressions and emotions
Colour theory, selection and mixing VS light

Thats right, busy little Ry has more travelling to do. This time, to MCM Birmingham Comic Con in England! How exciting! On the 22nd of November and 23rd of November. 22nd of November also happens to be my birthday. Which is part of the reason why I decided to fly this far this time, to celebrate my birthday in your great country. This will be my first time going to the UK. And yes I will be having a table there. I booked a dealer table rather than in the Comic Village area cos I don't have a comic..? But then I think you probably don't NEED a comic? You just need to be an artist? I don't know I think I probably should've got a table with the other artists... ANYWAY doe

ONE WEEK REMINDER: The Illuminated World ContestStock & ResourcesONE WEEK REMINDER: The Illuminated World Contest6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig

MZ's FIRST KISS?Today i went to the circus, and had my first kissMZ's FIRST KISS?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
well me and orange were sitting in the crowed like everyone else and this stripy pants red nosed Russian clown picks me outs of the crowed.
we walk along around the people and pick three other really BIG guys.
so all four of us go out on stage and the clown does a dance to music, and points to one of the guys, he had to do the crump dance.
then the clown did another dance the next guy had to do it also (failed)
the the clown pointed to me, he did a sexy dance then changed into "all the single ladys" byonce, i had to do, it, out of embarrassment i strolled to the middle of the stage in a sexy way then did that dance.
the next guy also got a dance to do.
all four of us sat on chairs leaning back on one an other, i was small they were big, the chairs were slowly getting pulled away and we were getting held up by each other.
the clown took my chair away, i nearly fell, the guys were so heavy, but i took there weight.
the clown ca
Are you the Main Character of your own Life?Thats a funny question to ask actually, "Are you the main character of your own life?" I can't really imagine anyone saying someone else is the main character in their own life, like 'Yeah my friend Bob, he is the main character, I am just a supporting role in his epic tale, pretty much if he dies I would also have to take my own life because his story has finished'. No. Im sure everyone consider themselves as the main character of their own lives, it's my story, my life, etc etc. I guess the real question is, how important is your story?Are you the Main Character of your own Life?7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Eversince I was a small ugly child, I have considered myself to be the STAR of my own movie. "The Life of Ry" is the title of the film, without sounding too egotentacles, it just mean that I felt I was destined to do great things, this might have something to do with how I was brought up, I was very optimistic, I was quite spoiled even, I was always happy and laughing, it may have something to do with me being an only child and the fact that I

Urgent help neededHi, this is Mark, Phil Jackson's brother.Urgent help needed2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you in the UK will have heard on the news these past two days, Phil has gone missing. No one has seen him since Wednesday last week and we are all extremely concerned for his wellbeing as he has never missed a family gathering, such as that over Easter.
More distressing is that the office complex he works out of was broken into on the evening of Wednesday 27th March, and there is a very real worry that those responsible may be involved in Phil's disappearance.
The police are of the mind that all of this may have something to do with Phil's online work, and that a cartoon or comic may have been motive for an unbalanced party to act against him.
CCTV in Phil's office captured a handful of images as the intruders entered from the service access: http://www.collectedcurios.com/CCVT_001.jpg http://www.collectedcurios.com/CCVT_002.jpg http://www.collectedcurios.com/CCVT_003.jpg

2 ROCOCO DRESSES FOR SALE!Hello, a friend of mine (Sarah that you have may seen on my reenactments pics ) sells wonderful silk dresses! She needs to make a new dress but had a problem with the fabric shop... she doesn't have enough money to make a new dress (and some room in her wardrobe!), and even if she loves them, she has to say goodbye to these 2 rococo dresses.2 ROCOCO DRESSES FOR SALE!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The pink one has been worn only once, and is ENTIRELY MADE BY HAND. In Pure SILK. Which makes it really really cheap for such a work! You'll never find another Rococo dress so cheap and so historically correct!
The other one is made in silk too, with some fantasy in it, worn only once too for the last halloween! Wonderful for a Halloween Gown !
You can also visit her blog to see the making of these 2 dresses
Take a look at her Etsy Shop! And thanks in advance!

Back to Basics Photography - CompositionLately I've seen quite a few photos that have potential, but need some work. Composition is one of the most important parts to taking any photo (and making any piece of art really) and so I thought I'd share a few basic rules and tips. The word composition simply means 'putting together' and so, with any piece of art, it's how the piece is put together. With a bit of practice while keeping these tips in mind, you can create a more impacting, pleasing to the eye piece of work that will draw the viewer in and keep them interesting.Back to Basics Photography - Composition2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You could crop your images afterwards when you get them onto the computer, but it'd be lovely to have a great image right off the boot, right? By keeping in mind the things below, you'll be well on your way to taking better photos. And don't forget, it's always better to know the rules before you start break them A few tips before we start;
Look around using the viewfinder every time you take a picture.

FAQI'm resubmitting this as I've been getting a lot of misunderstanding and the same questions over and over HAHA!FAQ5 years ago in Personal More Like This
I mainly want to reiterate one thing:
PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO DO A REQUEST, if you ask me to animate something or draw something that I think is outrageous I will TELL IT TO YOUR FACE and you will swear at me, and we'll argue like assholes as has been happening lately HAHA! so to avoid me blowing up in your face, do not request things from me, thanks!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Please don't ask me to do art trades... I don't want to usually HAHA!
I don't do requests. I won't make an animation for you even if you ask nicely. HELLZ NO, takes so long, learn it yourself. And IF you ask me to do something ridiculous such as an animation or an image with ten of your fav characters in it, prepare yourself if I am in a bad mood when I read your request. HAHA! ...

Wacom Driver Not Booting Properly?Time To Share Some WisdomWacom Driver Not Booting Properly?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Trouble with your Wacom driver not booting properly on windows? For the longest time I had problems with my Wacom tablet being ready to work once Windows finished booting. When I picked up the pen it just didn't move. When I tried to open the Wacom Tablet Properties I got the message that the driver did not load or something. Only way to resolve this was to reboot the machine. Not via 'restart' no... a complete shutdown was necessary. Very annoying when your Windows takes a while to boot. Mine surely does.
Recently I had enough and started to look for a solution (for the 10th time or so). With the difference that I seem to have found one now. Don't bother with the Wacom forums. As far as I can see they don't have much of a solution. But anyways. What can you do to solve the issue? Well, time to share some wisdom. Here we go:
1. Click the Windows button and type Services into the quick search
2. Click the icon on top of the upcoming lis
