Free Painting Programs :) (updated Mar. 12)Hi there, finally! I've done all folio for institution!Free Painting Programs :) (updated Mar. 12)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My routine and work ethics is back again ! Yeah.
I really apologize for my absent.. T_T
I will catch up everything as soon as possible.

This journal I decided to make it helpful. (hopefully) ^^
If you like to paint digitally, it doesn't matter what program you are using.
As long as it is functional enough for you, and you enjoy painting when you use it. ^^
I love to try all painting programs, it's like exploring!
Though we already know that Photoshop, Painter and Sai are great, but there are free ones
that good enough to create artwork as beautiful as those programs. ^^
Many times that I randomly posted about them but this time I want to collect them all here!
So it will be convenient for you all to check and compare them.
What I can say is that I'm grateful and appreciate those creators who spent their time and hard working and share them to us.
That's why I want to support and share them to you all!

if you go to me.deviantart.com you will land on the profile page of the account you're currently logged into.
(if you aren't logged into any account, to our frontpage you go)
it even works with any profile sub-page, like me.deviantart.com/journal/ or .../prints/ or .../gallery/ etc. which will direct the clicker to their own journal or store or gallery.
your newest deviation? me.deviantart.com/latest/
neat and simple, right? we originally implemented that to make it easier for us to link deviants to their own pages in our FAQs, but of course anyone can use it.
sadly it can be and is being abused, too.
you may have seen those stupid "worst artist on deviantart [link]" signatures, which upon clicking the link take you to your own profile.

Let's take a look at a Brief History of deviantART's mascot.A brief history of Fella11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Fella was brought to life thanks to switched, who designed him back in April 2001 for a mascot contest.
Back then he didn't look exactly as we know him today, his figure was a lot more basic and circular and his expression wasn't as human as we're used to today. However his main features remain, his mischievous look and his colors, most probably based on the site layout's at the time

They aren't better than you.I don't soapbox often, but I feel the need to say something to all my fellow artists... because I've had to struggle with this, and I know many (if not all) of you do, too.They aren't better than you.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Being on a site like this, with so much collaboration and so many artists of different styles and skills, can be both great and terrible for artists. Like myself, you probably have artists that you follow because they inspire you, because you 'wish you could draw as well as them'. It's impossible to draw without inspiration from something, and it's very hard to improve if you don't have examples for you to learn new techniques and ways to approach art.
But as easy as it is to find inspiration here, it's even easier to find discouragement.
I'm not surprised artists are statistically some of the most depressed people, for several reasons. The first is that, especially for those who do art for money, we have the issue of having so much stress placed on us because everything we do is going to be scrutinized and evaluate

but I truly, deeply thank each and everyone of you
because of you people, I feel appreciated
your motivating comments, favoriting my works, and always looking forward to my new drawings.. These all mean a whole LOT to me
because of you, I keep drawing, and feel motivated, and continue improving.
In real life, no one appreciated my talent (excluding family and my close people ofc). I have participated in several contests. I have sent drawings to magazines and children TV channels and such, but never got appreciated, no one cared.
however, when I came to DA, I got the appreciation I was always looking for.
so I just want to really really thank you, from the bottoms of my heart.

Over the years I’ve had a pretty straightforward view on gun control. Guns are dangerous and need to be restricted and made more inaccessible to prevent future acts of gun violence. I’ve never genuinely believed in the idea of banning all guns because I do think people DO need to have ways to protect themselves.
However, I’ve recently been thinking more about a different aspect to the gun control debate and it’s broader implications to other troublesome politically charged areas of our (United States) cult

Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous ExamplesJust for fun I thought I'd do a rundown of the most common forms of humor, their definitions, and examples. This is not a complete list by any means, but they are a list of many forms of humor and literature discourse which often get confused of mixed up.Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous Examples5 months ago in Personal More Like This
An imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialize an original work, its subject, author, style, or some other target, by means of satiric or ironic imitation.
Example: The movie "Airplane" is a parody of 1970's disaster movies. Many of Weird Al's music videos are parodies of other more famous music videos.
A work of visual art, literature, or music that imitates the style or character of the work of one or more other artists. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work it imitates.
Example: The movie "Super 8" is a pastiche of 1980's adventure films, specifically imitating the style of Stephen Spielberg's early career,
On: Illustration, Comics, and Story TellingDon’t suck -- PKOn: Illustration, Comics, and Story Telling1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I want to say first of all that sometimes I get people asking, or rather complaining, “why does it seem like the comics always get a better score? This group seems so focused on comics. What if I just want to draw pictures?”
Well, that ends up tying into narrative illustration, which is a pretty hard thing to do right if you’re used to drawing single shots of your character against a plain, white background. Most people end up doing comics because it seems easier right away: the characters can talk, you can set the scene, it doesn’t require a little description at the bottom...
But, even comics require some know-how to pull off really well. It’s just harder to pull off illustrations in this story-based environment, because comics make it a little less apparent when it’s not doing a very good job at telling that story.
But, I’ll get to comics second.
