Photomanipulation-Related Submission FAQsHello everyone,Photomanipulation-Related Submission FAQs3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Sometimes with the flood of information these days, it becomes really easy to lose track of the basics of what you can and cannot do and what is and is not required for submission. I thought I would put together some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for the Photomanipulation Community. Many of these answers are also relevant to the rest of dA.
I hope this is useful as we move forward with PE: Photomanip Month!
Does my artwork need a mature tag?
deviantART defines mature content as "Mature content is considered to be anything which contains nudity, excessive violence, blood, gore, or any other potentially upsetting or offensive material" and suggests that images that are controversial, such as religion and politics, may also be considered "mature." But, the definition of "mature" is more broad than that. See :faq220:
So what does this mean for YOUR specific artwork? The FAQs also explain that: :faq554:
Learning to draw with Loomis: art book featureIf you want to become a better artist and you find that your own "How to draw" books, or the tutorials on the internet are lacking in scope, then this article is for you. I'm going to talk to you about some of the best books on making art that have ever been written - and that's not an exaggeration.Learning to draw with Loomis: art book feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
These books were written around the WWII-era by a man called William Andrew Loomis. He was a very accomplished and widely published artist at the time, but what he's currently more well-known for is a series of art books he created during that time. These books have stood the test of time and their contents are still commonly used and recommended to art students of a wide range of skill levels, and if you're looking to improve your drawing skills, particulary faces and the human body, these books are a good place to start.
The major strength of his books is that they're not a step-by-step guide or tutorial on how to draw a specific picture, portrait or pose. Many art books fall into this ca
PE: Importance of AnatomyThe importance of anatomy.PE: Importance of Anatomy3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Understanding anatomy is crucial to many aspects of your art.
You'll notice that anatomy is essential for drawing. It becomes difficult to accurately draw a complex pose, or even a simple one, if you don't understand what's under all that skin or fur, or even bark. Knowing how everything fits together is important.
Once you notice where that certain muscle is, shading and form become much more accurate and more natural. Knowing why the nose and eyes fall where they do make it much easier to draw from memory, and nail that natural look you were going for.
Learning the anatomy of the subject you're going to draw is quite important, and will definitely help you on several levels.
It's also easier to drawing sequences of movement. One will know what connects to what, and how they move. What is possible, and what isn't. (Range of motion)
Drawing people and other animals can be intimidating. Once you have a solid foundation, it's much easier

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 books3 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:

Zapach odchodzącej bardzo powoli Zimy, przeganianej przez dźwięk obcasów wystukujących rytm granej melodii. Trunki lejące się strumieniami z wikińskich rogów. Słodki smak pitnego miodu na językach.

I am collecting many artworks drawn by my favorite artists: John Buscema, John Romita, Neal Adams, Jim Lee, and Alex Ross. Alex Ross has to be in the top of my list because I prefer his affordable, realistic and action artworks over the abstract ones (expensive and strange Picasso). His styles and techniques are great examples from student artists to fellow masters because he is the master of master artists.

Joe Cocker died on December 22nd after a battle with lung cancer.
There are artists whose art you admire and enjoy. And then there are artists whose art fuses with your soul and becomes forever part of who you are. Joe’s singing was this latter sort of art for people in this singer's generation.
There’s a lot Joe achieved as a singer. He had his share of hits, awards, recorded film and TV theme tracks, but that doesn’t mean much when you’re dead. What matters is that your music moved people. That those people remember and have kept passing down the feeling they had when they first heard your voice

I’ve always been inclined towards the Art world, my family has been a role model for me in many aspects, especially in the Art arena (my Grandpa was a Traditional painter, my Mom loves music, she plays the piano and sings, and my Grandma used to create some of the most beautiful handcrafts I’ve ever seen!)
