Braid Tutorial- Photoshop and SAI FriendlyThis is possible in PS and SAI. In sai you will need pen tool and marker/water. In photoshop two brushes. One for strands and a soft brush like below where it says 6, 19 and 19. The first three brushes displayed:Braid Tutorial- Photoshop and SAI Friendly3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First draw a line in the direction you want your braids to be in. Curved or straight.
Next draw a thick diamond shape, boxy if possible. Then from about halfway attatch another diamond shape.
Continue this all the way down your guideline. You will end up with something like this below.
Colour a flat base. The midtone of your braid and reasons why will be mentioned as we go.
If you are a cell-shader this tutorial will give you an idea on what to do but this is more aimed at realism and semi-realism but ask for help if you want to see this in other styles. Moving on.

In this article we will expand that typeface and add italics and alternate weights. Or rather, I will show you how to design italics and briefly present how you can modify your regular weight typeface to create alternate weights rather than having to re-draw the whole letter.

Reading Visual Novels Using AGTH/AT/ATLAS/ITHEDIT: I apologize, I did not notice that the images were broken and have fixed all links!Reading Visual Novels Using AGTH/AT/ATLAS/ITH8 months ago in Personal More Like This
This tutorial will explain to you how to read (almost any) Visual Novel in English without prior Japanese knowledge using Translation Aggregator, AGTH or ITH, and ATLAS. These programs do not modify the games files, so they should be safe to use without causing issues with developers.
I will begin with a short explanation as to what these programs are, followed by steps on how to set them up and finally some extra tips and tricks you could use to further the translations!
Feel free to ask questions through comments. Just keep in mind that I'm no expert at these programs and I myself used a tutorial to understand the basics of the programs, so I may be unable to answer some questions. Most links I supply will take you to forums where you can download and ask questions about the programs.

PencilsArtist's ToolboxPencils10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Let’s talk about pencils, the handy tool that every artist uses. The pencil can seem pretty basic at first glance, just a mundane everyday object. But the pencil can create magic:
There are a variety of brands of pencils that you can use for art and a variety of kinds. Let’s quickly look at some examples:
Graphite Pencils: This is your humble every day pencil. It is useful for sketches and full scale black and white work. There are many brands ranging from cheap to expensive. Art graphite pencils vary in hardness. The best way to think of hardness is how easily the graphite smudges or applies to the paper. F is the lightest and the hardest lead (the graphite filling of a pencil) and 9B is the softest and darkest lead
Rat Anatomy Compilation.Rats are very fascinating little creatures. They have small hands like humans, minus the thumbs. They are intelligent and social, and each rat has a unique personality. They can also easily stand on their hind legs, making them an easy transition to an anthropomorphic form for stories and art.Rat Anatomy Compilation.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, though, they are damn difficult to draw, and there are precious few resources for those wishing to delve into their anatomical structure (certainly me included). So I will be collecting references, both photos and drawings, that I think might be helpful to someone looking to draw my charming friend Rattus norvegicus (and perhaps some of his closest family members). I will probably add to this from time to time as I find new resources, so please feel free to suggest things that you think might be useful!

My Advice and hopefully encouragingBase on my insights & experienceMy Advice and hopefully encouraging2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ask this yourself:
Q: Did i draw long enough?
A: Some probably did not notice, but one cannot improve without investing time. Some draw so much, while others not.
Q: Do i draw without thinking?
A: Draw and learn form mistakes, break out from comfort zone, and explore. Some go to art school to learn more faster.
Everyone can improve with time, some will improve fast, and other will be slow. But keep in mind, every race has a finish line,
set your goal and dont lose hope, keep on pursuing and you will eventually reach that goal. I used to be terrible too http://marfrey.deviantart.com/art/Meme-Before-and-After-373114960

12 Years On deviantArt and How To Get DDsI needed to reflect about that matter when I received my 10th Daily Deviation in February and to be honest,12 Years On deviantArt and How To Get DDs1 year ago in Personal More Like This
it is astonishing how time flies. It feels like it was yesterday when I posted my first work on deviantArt in November 2002.
At that time I only regularly posted to Epilogue as well and both were lively communities.
The site was greener in its early days, and flat design was hip as well!
When I signed up on deviantart as user number 305258 way back in 2002 it was already big and no one knew it would be going to be that huge in 2014.
Now user numbers range above the 30 million mark - that´s crazy, for an art-community - I mean.
Current events such as the death of the online CG community CGHUB makes me think of how we spend our online time.

inspire YOU to learn and create your own works in the many
forms and mediums that you may work in.

FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)
1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat

How To Photograph Your CraftsThe absolute number one cause of rejection of DD suggestions for most Artisan Craft CVs is poor photography. There is nothing worse than seeing an otherwise brilliant piece ruined by a dodgy photo. But even beyond DD acceptance, if you want to people on dA to be able to appreciate your skill you need to be able to show your work off to advantage.How To Photograph Your Crafts2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Sometimes I'll tell a self-suggester that I can't feature their work because of the quality of the photography and they'll inevitably reply, "Oh, I'll have to get a better camera."
Repeat after me: the tools never make the artist.
You don't need a $9000 sewing machine to stitch a dress, you don't need a $1000 stand mixer to bake a cake, and you similarly don't need a top of the range SLR to take a brilliant photograph. It's all in how you take the photo.

A reference guide on bookbinding typesA reference guide on bookbinding typesA reference guide on bookbinding types1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
When I tell people I'm a bookbinder they often think I make only one type of book; the library kind. That, however, is only one of the many ways an artist can create a book. For me, it's a fun challenge to pick the right binding style to go with the purpose of the book. Whether it is a novel that needs to look really classy or medieval, a sketchbook for a graphic novelist or a paper about connections that lets me show the binding. In this article I'm going to tell you a little bit about all the types of bookbinding that I know. I'm not going into details but, if possible, I will link to images and tutorials that do.
If you're here for inspiration: this guide is pretty long. I recommend scrolling through the images first!
To make a start...
The different ways of binding books can be broken down into two general groups: adhesive bindings and non-adhesive bindings. Adhesive b
