PART_1 ! Sketching/referencing/anatomy etc.
Alright, here we go, this is part 2. You can say its about general painting, but its mostly about painting faces I tried to cut down a little with thumbnails
Umm, before I forget, make sure to check this one out http://theartreferences.tumblr.com , Pencil-Stencil told me about it, and I found some really useful stuff there Part 3 will probably be about eyes, lips, skin and blending, and it will be up in a few days.
If you know about some tutorials that can be helpful to other artists, note me, thank you

I Was Not Ready For This
What did I just sign myself up for?
I had never made, drawn, written, or created a book in my life, so this was all pretty foreign to me. I had told Heavy Metal publishing I'd do it on my own dime. Reason was, this was my project.
Not that I can't cooperate or collaborate, but this time I wanted to create what I saw in my head, and not have a voice behind me telling me what to do and what not to do. Kevin Eastman, head of HM Pub, was incredibly generous in this decision and told me to lead the way, and I tried my damnest.
So I started with the obvious fundamentals. What is the story of LMS?
Now, as a whole, LMS's simple logline is incredibly simple. A man who gets framed for a crime he didn't commit, breaks out of prison and goes after those
Jan.20/13I've been gone for so long and I don't even know what to say. First off, I am happy. For a big portion of my life I was sad. But somehow I managed to be alot more positive and just be happy. Whenever I think about posting photos, I get this feeling in my throat. That I'll choke and then I can't breathe. Not too long ago I realized I have anxiety over posting photos. I mean I know all of you are very kind people but I would just automatically think "well what if they don't like it?" And the pressure of everything kind of just crumbled. I also have OCD. I never noticed how bad it was until I stopped taking my antidepressants(also for ocd) I felt alot happier off of them but sometimes it's hard to deal with OCD. People often use the term loosely and say they have it because they need their pencil to always be sharpened or something. Mines a little different. I completely obsess over something for months at a time then drop it completely like it never mattered. For a long time I obsessed oJan.20/132 years ago in Personal More Like This

WAVES OF DOUBT
I remember this one night I couldn't get anything to work with LMS. I couldn't draw, I couldn't write, I couldn't be creative. I felt trapped, sick to my stomach and had an ongoing feeling of anxiety.
I would get up, walk around, and force ideas. Stupid, uncreative and rushed thoughts. I went upstairs and laid down next to my gf at the time,
HAPPY HALLOWEEN & AUTUMN FEATURE!HAPPY AUTUMN, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!HAPPY HALLOWEEN & AUTUMN FEATURE!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I know some here on DA are against large features, but I enjoy them because they connect many deviants from around the world who may have never heard of one another. And of course, the more people who this article, the more chances each one of you will be exposed.
Autumn is my favourite season and Halloween is definitely my favourite celebration. So, I thought it would be cool to base my next feature on this. Some of these choices are quite random, some well known, while some are not known at all. Some come from my Autumn-themed thread posts where I encouraged deviants to post their latest Autumn/Halloween works, some from the galleries of those who recently faved or watched my workthanks for the support, btw!some from #GetWatchers (a great place to get exposure ), and some were chosen by simply searching the newest Halloween-themed art on Dev
Activity CheckEDIT | Everyone who didn't make the AC check has now been booted from the group along with their cheetahs.

Solis-Starweaver, Kitonika9, MetalWolfGemstone, Kyarako, GypsyCrest19 and Shireling-Archer have all won a 'token' to add an extra cub onto any litter they would like at any time. it could be your own, or it could be someone else's; save it for something special. <3 Congratulations everyoneActivity Check1 year ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT| Two days left before the due dates everyone. once the AC is due up, we'l go through and kick out anyone who hasn't done it, and kill of their characters in the process. If you can't do it, you need to send us a note explaining why you can't and haven't done it in all the time we've given you, otherwise you can not be excused, even if you comment on our profile.

Anatomy booksI'm frequently asked how I learned to draw and the answer is very simple - a large part of my knowledge is self taught from books. That's why I thought it would be a good idea to share some titles I owned or came across and used them through the years. Hopefully someone will find this list useful :3Anatomy books2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Books that are awesome:
"Anatomy for the Artist" by Sarah Simblet
"The Artist's Guide to Animal Anatomy" by Bammes Gottfried
Books that are good:
" Drawing the Head and Hands" by Andrew Loomis
"Figure Drawing for all it's Worth" also by Andrew Loomis
Books that are ok but from the time perspective I do not recommend them:
"How to Draw Heads and Portraits" by Jose M. Parramon
"Human Figure" by Jose M. Parramon
Books that are pure unrefined shit and should be burned on sight:

Since the amount of entries is much higher than what I expected, I decided to add a few more smaller prices to mention other good designs, even if I won't be keeping the characters. There will be 5 other winners of 100 each!
I'm very picky when it comes to designs, and I know it won't be easy to choose, there are already many good designs. And the contest is not over yet, I'm still expecting to see other great entries!

What I wish is to have one (or more) animal character(s) I will like enough to use/draw/etc. But I can't seem to be able to create an animal OC I like enough by myself.

feel free to send me music from any genre, with or without lyrics (though expect the same in return). prose pieces CAN be longer than a vignette, but you certainly don't have to write a novel. likewise, while there is no limitation on length, please don't write a novel

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.
