TECHNIQUES and TOOLSI'm reposting TECHNIQUES because people on Deviant Art aren't able to find my old journals pre 2010. And I get enough notes from people that it's helpful to have it around so I don't have to repeat myself. This is pretty much the same journal as before, although I did alter it a little by adding more dick jokes.TECHNIQUES and TOOLS5 years ago in Personal More Like This
I use 500lbs rough Bristol board to draw on. Usually I'll buy it in large sheets so I can cut it into smaller pages and save money. If you can't find it then grab some Strathmore 400lbs press paper (brown cover). It's a little more than the yellow stuff but it won't bleed as much. Lately I'm using DC paper which is pretty much the same thing as 500lbs press. I'll draw on the back of it because I HATE THOSE BLUE LINES. Nothing cheapens original art like those fucking blue lines. And all it does is remind me that I'm a comic book artist and not an illustrator.

Due to money issues, I've had to lower the grand prize to $30. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Deadline has been extended!
Welcome, one and all, to my latest contest journal! Did the title catch your attention? $30 is a lot of smackaroos, ain't it? Now that I have your attention, I'd like to direct you to the contest details in question.
The objective of this contest is to draw a book cover for my novel-in-progress, Bialo Lassedim.
The title translates to "Voice of the Demons". In this cover, I would like the main characters, Cresil and Ivo. There's a couple of situations for you to choose from to draw the cover in. First, let's give you a bit of information about the characters so you know what kind of people they are before you draw them.

The Top Reasons for Manuscript RejectionOne of the things that the literary agency I work for does some weekends out of the year is teach seminars on query writing and the first 5 pages of manuscripts (which, basically just means the first page of the manuscript). The seminars last only a day or two, but aim to help writers improve their queries and start of their books so that they have a better chance of standing out in the ever-growing slush pile. Since I know many members of the literature community here aim to one day be published writers, I thought I would share our sheet of the top reasons for manuscript rejections. Please note: These are in no particular order.The Top Reasons for Manuscript Rejection2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Wrong genre Agents have guidelines for specific genres that they like to represent. Just like you and me, they have certain genres they love and certain genres they don't. Sometimes, it's not because of personal preference, but because they don't know the market for some books as well as other agents who are very passionate about

REMINDER AND PRIZE UPDATE
Enter if you dare . . .
Ombre-De-Nuit is a high-level "dark" digital group here on dA. The administrators of the group are darkly pleased to present you, our members, with our latest challenge: The Brothers Grimm meet Burton.
Your task, should you dare to undertake it, is to twist a Grimm Fairytale into a Burton-style Nightmare.
You can find examples of Grimm fairytales here. Some popular ones include Rapunzel, Hansel & Gretel, and Cinderella. You can choose one Grimm fairytale to twist; it's fine just to depict a scene of your choosing or make one up on your own. But, the fairytale should be at least somewhat recognizable, and it must have elements that are Burtonesque.
Think about what Burtonesque means. What is the undercurrent between Sweeney Todd, Beetl

For this challenge, ONLY the following fairy tales can be used:

Photography Troubleshooting: Winter WildlifeFor many parts of the world, Winter provides a beautiful backdrop for some of the best landscape and water scape Photography out there. Snowy hills, Frosty trees and more help to convert a world of vibrant Summer or Autumn into subdued yet awe-inspiring Winter. But what about the wildlife? Extreme weather conditions can make it more challenging to get out and about with the camera, but can also give you more opportunity to capture those elusive animals.Photography Troubleshooting: Winter Wildlife2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
When I first started investigating Winter Wildlife Photography I thought that I would have to aim for things like Foxes, Deer and other wild and sometimes elusive animals. But actually, wildlife Photography and in particular in the Winter - can start right in the back garden.
Birds in particular get hungrier and needier during Winter months in England. I'm sure this is true for many parts of the world too. Depending on the kinds that frequent your garden, you could encourage them to linger pretty quickly or it might
Romancing Romantics Poetry Contest:iconflyingheartsplz:Romancing Romantics Poetry Contest1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Valentine's Day is soon approaching, and what better way to kick off the season of love than with a poetry contest? A romantic poetry contest. But! Instead of writing a poem to your secret admirer or your true love expressing just how much they mean to you or how your heart yearns for them, you'll be writing it for someone else: a Romantic poet.
For this contest, you'll have a choice between any of the Romantic poets (from any country of your choice) to write a romantic poem to. You can find a list of Romantic poets HERE!
Please keep in mind when writing: the specific poet's style, themes, and/or life to make it more interesting. We want these poems to be written for them, not just generic love poems with their names slapped on. So, the more references there are to the poet, the more bonus points for you! Your poem can either be written fro

This is a speculative fiction contest—the technology requirement could cover steampunk, 'John Carter,' 'The Windup Girl,' 'Watchmen,' '2001: A Space Odyssey' or about anything else you can think of. The one thing that isn't permissible is magic.
