about photoshop and hard work...damn it!WARINING- EITHER READ THIS COMPLETELY OR DON'T BOTHER, AS THAT IS ONE OF THE CHARACTER TRAITS THIS JOURNAL IS ABOUT!about photoshop and hard work...damn it!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
okay, so after a swarm of questions many of which left me with my jaw on the floor... i realized something...
people are afraid of pushing a button to see what it does
okay, to backtrack first. i am self taught in photoshop, had no books had no tutorials, had a borrowed i think 7... dunno which was before cs2 when i started, i learned it by ....pressing a button and seeing what it does
i explored, i tried stuff out.
i had no teachers no schools no education on this stuff
i saw a button i pressed it.
that is how about 9 years ago when i first decided to try and apply digital coloring to early pages of ravine, i was dabbing paint on a page. i came to the point where i had to paint a waterfall. so , just for fun i tried putting scattering on the foam brush i made, a simple thing. and i was gonna see if smudge could be scattered. it had a weird side effect.

A Must Read!Guys, i just want to share these journals with you (created by: Suzanne-Helmigh) whether you're a beginner, a student, or a professional artist, these are good articles, and covered a lot of good points, not only for becoming a good artist but things to be aware about as an artist. If you have a moment, have a look! I've shared one about the myth of concept art on my art blog, but i didn't want to leave out the rest of it. So instead i've decided to share these on here, since i have more watchers here than on my art blog. I hope it will help you in some way. Big thanks to Suzanne for making these!A Must Read!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
PixieColdBorn in Berlin, Germany, Svenja Jödicke (AKA PixieCold), has established herself as an incredible artist. Painting with watercolors, inks, and markers on watercolor paper, she's able to create a surreal world filled with nature goddesses and vibrant colors and patterns.PixieCold2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
All deviations featured are available as Prints.
Eyes have always been focus of her artwork, as "they are able to tell unspoken stories."
Besides her work with watercolor, PixieCold started experimenting with makeup and photography as well, using real insects (live and dead) in her work.

Winter is Coming
Few phrases are more closely associated with the Game of Thrones fandom than this one. We know that winters in Game of Thrones are long, often lasting several years. It is also difficult for people in that world to predict when the seasons will change, the Citadel even has a special, rare breed of white raven they send out to deliver the news of the changing season. While this may just be the way that the seasons in the world of Game of Thrones
Wayne White: An Embarrassment Of TalentsWayne White: An Embarrassment Of Talents3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
:icontechgnotic: Aug 29, 2012 by techgnotic
I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."
Please stop and say hello and welcome seewaynewhite in his first week at deviantART.

Commission Info (OLD~ BEING UPDATED)From January 21st on, I will be offering point commissions!Commission Info (OLD~ BEING UPDATED)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is my first time opening them up, so please be patient with me as I try and figure out this premium content thing.
(I've honestly no idea if this will even generate interest, but I thought I'd give it a shot)
Once you've read everything, and if you are interested, please comment on this journal with your info ^___^
From what I gather, to make real money from point commissions on dA, you have to upload the drawing and price it.
What I will be doing to ensure I receive payment is this:
Once I get your commission info, I will sketch out what you ask for. Then I will note you a link to a size-reduced version of the sketch so that you can see what you're getting, and request changes if need be. Once you are satisfied, I will finish the commission, and note you when it is complete with another link. When you click the link, your commission will not show up right away. A white 960x540 pixel file with your dA name will appear, an
Tips on HOW TO BE A BETTER ARTIST.Sometimes I get a notes from you guys asking about tips to draw better. It's okay to ask if you're prepared to get respond that does not resolve all your problems ♥ Many of you ask about techniques, specific things to make your drawing work or just anatomy. I'm not at a place when I can teach you any of this. I'm still at my artistic journey and I'll be in it for the rest of my life. But I can still share with you some experience that I gained while travelling with my drawing. So here they are 8 core points to improve.Tips on HOW TO BE A BETTER ARTIST.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Don't try to find your style at first. When your hand isn't warmed up by tons of training and studies you'll only get frustrated. So just draw, regardless of style.
2. Try to understand anatomy. And when I say "try to understand" I mean fill thousands of pages with it. But only one theme at a time. It will be easier. So lets say today you'll be trying to understand an eye, second day work with ears.
Character Design: An introductionCharacter Design: An introduction3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
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

Duel of the fates

Famously said by many, “Ninety percent of success is showing up.” How true it is about a soul killing combination: looking at what our own first efforts in any endeavor, particularly art, result in, and then looking at the works of far more experienced artists. Giving up always seems the logical, if panicked,
