What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

PE: How to Animate in GimpHow to Animate in GimpPE: How to Animate in Gimp9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Gimp is a free photo editing software that you can download at gimp.org. You can use it for a lot of different things like photo manipulations, drawing, pixel art, etc. Today though, we will be covering the topic of animation!
Note that this tutorial will only show the basics of Gimp animation. How to make the frames, how to save it and the such. So let's get started!
Start by making the subject. I just used a random black ball, but the subject can be as simple or as complex as you want, depending on what you're making. Make sure you switch over to the layers tab.
Tip: If you do not already have the layers tab there by default, go to any of the tabs and press that little arrow that the green arrow is pointing at. After you click tab press: Add tab> Layers. After that, the layer tab like in the picture should show up.
After making t
Tutorial Showcase #14DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal.

How to: Request CSS HelpI do get notes and comments of people asking for help quite a lot. While most people do just fine there are some people that forget that they are asking for a favour and aren’t in the position to demand anything.How to: Request CSS Help1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Others are just so vague that you never really know what they really want you to do. And because of that I decided to write down some tips – based on my own experience – to help those who are not sure how to ask for help right. It will make things easier for both sides.
The following things are not universal, they reflect mostly my point of view and how I would like to deal with such request and the process of it. It will not apply for all CSS coders, but it should still give you an idea of what to do and what you should avoid.
Before you ask for help
Make sure that you have tried everything that is within your possibilities. The best way of learning is to spot mistakes on your own.

'How to...?' - Comics series - First stepsHi there! I decided to write a few tips and concepts to create a comics series. Be prepared, it's a loooooooong text. I hope it's helpful!'How to...?' - Comics series - First steps2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
So let's get started!
Creating comics series is not that quick and easy as you may think, there’s some work behind it. It’s not just make some squares in a sheet and then *BAM!* here’s the story. Like other communication types, there’s some conventions in what concerns comics’ creation that you must acknowledge, but nowadays every style is acceptable. Despite that, there are some concepts you have to retain:
- Consistency and accuracy – your characters must look the same in the whole story, I mean, their proportions must be respected. For this you have to draw the characters and document them, as I will explain later;
- And a great capacity for planning – you’ll

TutorialHi, everyone! It's been a while.Tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I've joined dA, many people have asked me about doing a color tutorial. (i don't understand, there's nothing appealing in my coloring style ww). The truth is I've never made a tutorial before because I can't express myself in english, because as you may know, I speak Spanish, not English. (my English suck pretty much ok orzlll)
Anyways, since many people asked for it, I ended up making a tutorial. Actually I finished it some weeks ago. You can find my tutorial in my tumblr:

Again, I want to warn you that since I don't speak English and I can't express myself correctly, you will probably find many mistakes;;
If you have any question, feel free to ask me anything you want!

Specific Imagery: What Makes a Poem Good?Specific Imagery: What Makes a Poem Good?Specific Imagery: What Makes a Poem Good?2 weeks ago in Literature Features More Like This
So what makes a poem good?
According to Samuel Taylor Coleridge (please, never just call him Sam) the definition of poetry is "the best words in their best order".
Fine. But what exactly does that mean?
It means that good poetry is about much more than just matching rhythm and rhyme. What elevates any poem above its peers is the specific choice of words to match the poet's intent.
Say what now?
Think of it this way: our chosen words are our color palette, and the way we combine them equates to brush strokes and blending. Strong words equal bold hues, while overused and cliché terms are a lot like faded watercolors. You want your hard work to stand out, not blend in, right?
Of course I do!
Then my biggest piece of advice is this: choose your words.
What do you mean? I always choose my words; I'm a writer, after all!
What I mean is, do your best to choose the most appro

I'll eventually make DA-compatible version of it, but that will have to wait. I can't exactly use the same kind of layout format as with my previous tutorials, as this one has waaaay too varying kinds of images to fit into a mold like that and still look good. And holy moly, that's a lot of text! Took me several hours to write! But at least I've explained things by depth, hrrmh. o_o
Indeed, I drew that image over a month ago, and I've had the all the necessary pieces of the tutorial lying around, ready to be tutorialized, ever since. But with everything else going on it had to wait. But now the tutorial is done and I'm going to have some icecream! And then it's time to draw yet another comic page...

How is your Chroma?As artists we all know that color is our friend, whether full spectrum, monochromatic, or simply black and white. But knowing just how to use this very special friend can be frustrating at times or just downright confusing (trust me, I've been there plenty before!) This blog is for those of us who work traditionally (not to worry my futuristic friends, I'll be writing a blog specifically for you as well!) Here are some terms you need to become acquainted with: chroma, value, tint, shade, and intensity/saturation.How is your Chroma?9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
What is Chroma?
Chroma is the Greek word for "color", it refers to the purity or intensity of a color.
What is Value?
Value is the lightness or darkness of a color.
What is a Tint?
Tinting a color means lightening it by adding white.
What is a shade?
Shading a color means darkening it by adding black.
What is intensity and saturation?
This refers to the strength of
A quick guide in how to make a nice galleryI've seen many people, mostly young teenagers between 13-16, who rants in their journals about lack of feedback on their drawings.A quick guide in how to make a nice gallery2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many, if not all, of these people think it's because they aren't good enough in drawing to be the reason.
But you don't actually need to be a "god" at drawing to achieve feedback on your gallery.
A lot lies in how you display your deviations in your featured gallery-folder.
The first thing you have to ask yourself is:
"Am I here for the community, or to show my art?"
Because if you prefer being here just as an art-appreciator and get online-friends. Then you maybe don't care about your gallery so much.
But if you wanna get feedback on your art, improve, and get some watchers, you really need to show the internet that you are serious. And that is hard to achieve with a mediocre gallery.
So here comes a list of obvious "DO" and "DO NOT".
Expect that people will give you feedback in the first place.
Because they won't unless the
Poetry Basics: EmotionsEmotions in poetryPoetry Basics: Emotions2 weeks ago in Literature Features More Like This
Writing, at its very base, is communication. We write to communicate — with someone else, with ourselves — when we write, we arrange words in a manner that is intended to be read. This is very important because, no matter what or how you write, this one basic fact never changes. If you get stuck at any point, you can come back to this sturdy foundation. I am writing to communicate; what do I want to communicate?
Often, the answer is emotions: how you feel, or how you want your reader to feel. As Gregory Corso wrote, "You must feel! It's beautiful to feel!"
We all feel, but how we express our feels is a matter of perspective. If we are too flippant with our choice of words, our readers will think we are shallow. If we are too brooding and deliberate, our readers may find us incomprehensible. Finding a balance takes work and dedication.
But that work and dedication is what distinguishes
Poetry Basics: BrevityBrevity: n. the quality of expressing much in few words.Poetry Basics: Brevity3 weeks ago in Deviant Events More Like This
When I was in tenth grade, I took my first literature course. It was a six week exploration of poetry. The first poem my teacher showed us was Ezra Pound's In a Station of the Metro:
The apparition of faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.
I, in all of my 16-year-old knowledge of the intricacies of what poetry is, informed my teacher that those two lines were not a poem.
"You don't think so?"
"No. They don't rhyme, they are just one metaphor, and did I mention they're only two lines?"
She sure showed me.
Importance in Poetry
Pound's poem is considered such a great work because he inserts several layers into a single image. Using only 13 words he evokes an entire painting within the reader's mind. You can hear the sounds of the trains, see the fatigue of a mother wrestling with her cranky toddler,
