These books show a range of styles and approach, from classic static manga, to innovative use of sound and motion:
This parallax by Danesippi is deceptively simple, but works beautifully. So much depth!
The most basic use of the tool, but so amazingly designed and executed by Grozyll that it begs to be checked out.

Massive Mario Collab - Last month to participate! SubjectMassive Mario Collab - Last month to participate!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
[Update] The collaboration ends on the 31st, so from now on when you sign up your due date will be the 31st.
Also, I've upped the number of characters you can do to ten, so if there was one more you who've completed nine wanted to do, now's the time to pick up one more.
For this collab, we will be drawing all the Mario characters we can!
:iconattention-plz: PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE SIGNING UP! I don't want you to draw a character and not be allowed in because you missed a rule. ;_;
You don't have to be part of the group to join in the collaboration, but it's HIGHLY recommended at least for the duration of the collab because if I have any updates or new rules, I'm going to send the message here.
Any Mario character can only be in the collab once. In other words, if someone has already taken him/her/it, then you can't sign up them again.
When we're done, Zimeta will put together all the individu
Halloween Contest Win $50 - 1 week leftOnly 10 days left, now is basically your last chance to participate in the anual :icongame-art-hq: contest, read the details about the theme, prizes and rules below:Halloween Contest Win $50 - 1 week left4 months ago in Personal More Like This
The Theme: Scary Video Game related Fan Art. all kinds of visual art are allowed, digital and traditional drawings, photos of sculptures, 3D model art (must be own models, ripped characters models don't count) or cosplay art.
You choose the game, the setting, the characters, important is only that it is something scary. Not scary in a cute way like a nice King Boo from Mario World, but really scary stuff, yes gore and violence is allowed as well. Gritty stuff, morbid stuff, horror elements are all fine.
Everything from a really scary looking undead League of Legends character to Pokemons etc is allowed.
In this contest you can also add characters from non-video game media like Freddy Krueger, Jason or the Super Natural Winchester Brothers getting eaten alive by Kirby. This contest is very unusual for this group, I k
Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.For a lot of you it might be nothing new, but since many of you are either new on dA or not experienced with something like "strategies" to get views, comments and faves for their works i (your most favourite dA group guy :icongbk666: ) thought i write up a few hopefully useful hints for you.Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Upload as many drawings / photos etc. as you can. Some of you would argue now that it can be counterproductive if the deviations are not good, but i come to that point in #2
2. Join Groups. A Ton of them.. at least 15-25 . And submit your stuff to them on a regular base. BUT only the things you consider by yourself as "good" . The rest is for your gallery only, and interesting for those deviants who want to see sketches, WIP's etc.
A photographer often makes 100-500 photos in a 2-3 hours long shooting..but in the end only 1-3 of all these photos are getting uploaded /used for something since they are the best. Quality >Quantity . Always think that way.

We also have a deviantART section that features two categories:

Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Bros.As the title suggests, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. came out in my country and Europe yesterday. In fact, we're the first ones to get the game!! :iconmeowdummyplz: :iconhappymeowplz: :iconfuckyeahplz: At least, the tables have been turned on the Americans and the Japanese people. [rofl] On the bright side, it's fair now. The [United States of America] and Japan now have to play the "waiting game". You know, karma. What goes around, comes around. At long last, these said countries will get a taste of how we Brits and Europeans feel to wait so long for a game to be released. In a way, it feels satisfying.

A Summer Contest Begins Today!Hello everyone!A Summer Contest Begins Today!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
To celebrate the 1 year Anniversary of Mario and Luigi Dream Team, our group is holding a summer contest, with the deadline being July 12th.
Seeing as summer is finally here, and the game's setting being on holiday, the theme shall be Summer/Beach/Pool/Holiday. It would also be a good idea to make sure you feature Luigi in your submission, befitting the group's name. You can find the submission folder named 'Summer Contest' now in the gallery.
The prizes this time are:
1st Place: 800 Points
2nd Place: 500 Points
3rd Place: 300 Points
With around a month and a half until the deadline, we hope you will all find some time to submit and compete!
Once again Admin :iconsagojyousartpage: and myself :iconwalkerp: will be judging on the quality of the piece, originality and adherence to the theme.
OCs are indeed allowed, as long as the main cast are featured alongside them.
If anyone has any questions, do not hesitate to ask!

KiShinYuu :with great lighting, a great expression, and a great style! This piece is simply wonderful!
NeoZ7:this is a very simple, but effective piece. It looks so good it almost looks like a capture from some sort of Mario TV show! The coloring style is great, and I enjoy the expression! Excellent job!
Villaman89: This is killer! I love the poses and that they actually drew an actiony sequence, which I appreciate. Real media is always something to be admired, and I like the style.

WISDOM NUMBER THREE!!! Work smart and leave your comfort zone. This part is my qualifier for art school, tutorials, and educational resources in general, because they can be good, but only if you make them good. Once you've gotten in to the habit of drawing consistently, it's important to start being mindful of what you're drawing, how you're drawing it, and why you're drawing it. A key ingredient of success is hard work, but if that work isn't purposeful it might not move you
Advice for Aspiring Artists Pt. 2Here's the continuation of yesterday's journal discussing the importance of hard work. If you missed it, click here!Advice for Aspiring Artists Pt. 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
In part two I'm gonna talk about one of the biggest roadblocks I hear from artists who are having difficulty getting in to good study habits, so without further ado...
WISDOM NUMBER TWO!! Don't wait for perfect weather and stop making excuses. So often I hear things like "I don't want to waste paper" or "I don't know what to draw" or "I haven't found a good tutorial" or "I don't want to study perspective" or any number of things along those lines. I'll be blunt and just put the answer out there now: get over it. If you want to be an artist, you have to do the work, end of story. And with all the time you've spent thinking, wondering, being uncertain, and searching for that magical art secret of power, you could have filled 10 pages in your sketchbook today and inc

What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)Okay, due to some flaming I've received because I brought art plagiarism to the attention of an art plagiarist... I've realized that there is more than a good number of people who don't know what art plagiarism really is--so, I've written an informative journal for you all. It's broken down into several easy to understand sections.What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)5 years ago in Personal More Like This
http://snapesgirl34.deviantart.com/art/The-Ultimate-Tutorial-2-0-46849943 You might also get a good tl;dr out of reading this amazing tutorial. Hopefully, if my journal's not enough to understand the meaning of art plagiarism, then the tutorial will be (or vice versa, maybe my journal will help you understand the tutorial more).
What Is Art Theft?
What Is Tracing?
What Is Art Paraphrasing?
Why Can't I Use Other People's Art as "Reference" to Make My Own Art?

The big focus are again the many enemies and bosses of the complete Mario Universe, ranging from Super Mario Bros to Super Mario World 3D, and all spinoffs like Mario RPG and and and.
As usual since 2014, you the Game-Art-HQ Contributors were able to participate a bit earlier than everyone else!
Rules and standards:
No gore, no sex, lets stick to the original designs.
Every artist can claim exactly one Enemy or Boss character of a Super Mario Game, from the Goomba to Bowser, all enemies and specific designs are allowed
Every enemys /boss can be claimed by only one artist in this first round of the project. If this new art collaboration will continue, the characters can get drawn by more artists just like how we did it in Link's Blacklist

Advice for Aspiring Artists Pt. 1So this has been on my mind a bit lately and I was just struck with the sudden urge to write about it. It's a bit long so I've broken it in to three parts, but if you're a beginning artist I would recommend reading through it, it might just get you aimed in the right direction.Advice for Aspiring Artists Pt. 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
This started a couple days ago when I was trolling facebook and someone had posted some artwork, and one of the comments was something along the lines of "Nice! What tutorial did you use for this?" which prompted an immediate and violent facedesk on my part. I hear things like this all the time and would like to help dispel some myths about learning art; so after 9 years of drawing and 3 years of hardcore education and study, here's what I've learned about how to get better at art:
WISDOM NUMBER ONE! Getting better demands consistent, hard work. That's it. That's the magical secret that great artists never seem to get to in their tutorials; it's that one pivotal thing that makes the difference between

Take your art to higher lever in 4 simple steps!
For people who are serious about drawing and want to make career in art! And for me to stop getting questions on how to practice, or how do you get better
Are you stuck and don't know how to carry on making great art?
You just want to draw better?
If an answer to any of these questions is 'yes' then you might find this interesting...
Since the only thing I ever acknowledged myself good at is getting better I decided to share a couple of tricks.
I truly believe it works in every single case.
It's true. You can get out now or shut up and listen and get better.
(oh and do I need to mention that you need to draw a lot to get better?
I didn't draw a lot and still got better because I followed the steps listed below. But yeah, may not work without drawing a lot...)
Step 1. Honesty.
Be aware of your own limitations. They're usually bigger than you really think, despite what people say. I won't be talking about fals
