Just messing around with Deviant ArtI have been really bad at keeping up with things here. So this year( I know it's a bit late for Resolutions) but this year I plan to make it a go. I'm going to try cross posting and all kinds of other stuff that people say i should do. So I'll be adding more stuff and hopefully talking with more people and being more active. I really love coming to look at work on Deviant art, and I think it's time I gave back more art to the world.

Les numéros 4 et 5 de Ganesha sont clairement un cran au dessus des précédent numéros.
Et nous comptons bien monter encore le niveau, pensez donc :
Impression au format Comics
Sélection des artistes avec un accompagnement à chacune des étapes de la création de leur BD (Storyboard, encrage, couleur et lettrage)
Nous sommes encore à la recherche de contributeurs pour le prochain numéro : Rock'n'Roll donc si ça vous branche, je rapelle les conditions de participation :
1 à 6 pages maximum, couleur ou noir et blanc mais de qualité.
Une histoire auto contenue ayant un rapport de près ou de loin avec le thème (la vie d'un musicien, l'illustration d'une chanson, n'importe quoi du moment que ça parle de Rock).

5 Suggestions to Make Horror ScarySince we're coming up on Halloween (sort of) and I'm increasingly irritable at the lack of horror films to see, here five ways I think the genre in film, television and video games could be improved.5 Suggestions to Make Horror Scary1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm actually a fan of horror, but specifically physiological dread rather then gore which is increasingly becoming the minority of horror in general. I'm hoping there are those like me, sick of the splatter and wanting to see horror once more actually SCARE people again!
1: No Cheap Music Stings
This is one that's really starting to get to me. EVERY SINGLE instance of suspense has to be broken up with a loud discordant blast of music and sound. Sure it's startling but since the music sting itself doesn't exist inside the universe of the film/show/game it comes across as artificial with only a little bit of retrospect. To me music stings make me jump but they don't actually scare me, any more then getting a static electrical zap is terrifying. Worse a surprising lot of these stings oc
Comic Composition GeekoutSPECIAL GUEST STAR (against his knowledge) IS :iconandrew-ross-maclean:Comic Composition Geekout9 months ago in Personal More Like This
You guys know when I get really excited about art geekery, I JUST CAN'T KEEP IT IN. I also feel like composition is a really hard thing to learn, and all you can really do is try to learn "what is good" in composition, and then try to find examples until you can recognize it. In addition, composition for comics is extra hard because you have to worry about the overall flow of the page as well as the composition of each individual panel.
So I was doing my spring cleaning of my message center and came on some new comic pages he uploaded, all of which are awesome, but take a particular look at this one:
This page is AMAZING. I started watching this guy for his slick style and stayed for his crazy composition skills, and this page makes a particularly good example because his work is so clean and straight-forward, there's not a lot of noodling to distract from the motion lines.

Artist WalkthroughThis walkthrough focuses on:Artist Walkthrough1 year ago in Personal More Like This
- guiding you as an artist and improving your artistic skills
So having said that... let's get started!
I have been drawing for a long time. Since I was little I would draw all the time on anything I could find. That passion for drawing and art has always stayed with me. But the problem is talent or potential will only get you so far. If you really want to become a great artist you will have to put in many hours of work. And you would preferably have someone there to guide you. Even now I am learning about basic skills I wish I had learned years ago. That is the problem of being self taught... you have to figure everything out yourself. Of course there are benefits to that too. Self taught artists are generally very motivated and passionate people. I have only come to the point where I am now just because I am passionate and slightly obsessed with drawing. But I want to know more, learn more and improve more. So that is why I am setting up this little drawi

At deviantART, we have spent the past 11 years building a place where artists can share and discuss their work and get inspired by the work of their contemporaries. A noble cause, for certain, but we would like to be so much more to our beloved community of brilliant creatives. Starting today, deviantART will also be a means of inspiration in an entirely new way with financial support for art.
On 3 month cycles, deviantART will accept applications from artists seeking to fund art-related projects. A panel called the Creative Grants Board will pick those projects that they believe will benefit particularly from a Grant and give those artists the support they need to make it happen. The lucky few who are chosen to receive Grants will also be given a beautiful accolade on their deviantART Profile Page to celebrate their succes

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser

The heroes returned home. T J Bostford who is the younger brother of Becky Botsford made some money for a down payment to buy a new swing set he wanted.

Yeah I know.
You've been out there,
Tried to mix with those animals,
And it just left you full of humiliated confusion.
So you stagger back home,
And wait for nothing,
But the solitary refinement of your room spits you back out onto the street,
And now you're desperate,
And in need of human contact,
You meet me,
And your' whole world changes,
Because everything I say is everything you've ever wanted to hear.
So you drop all your defenses and you drop all your fears,
And you trust me completely.
In every way,
Cause I make you feel so strong and so powerful inside.
You feel so lucky,
But your ego obscures reality,
And you never bother to wonder why,
Things are going so well.
You wanna know why?
Cause I'm a liar
Yeah I'm a liar
I'll tear your mind out
I'll burn your soul
I'll turn you into me
I'll turn you into me
Cause Im a liar, a liar
A liar, a liar
I'll hide behind a smile,

Hi I’m Andrea Dotta: a Pro comic artist and animator and one year ago I had the insane idea of making a powerful webcomic to show my works to more people as possible. Now I’m in a positive development towards my goal. If you want to do a webcomic, always do your best as their are millions of webcomics on the internet.
In this article, I would like to share the things that I’ve learned this year so I hope you will get something from me.
