100 POINT/$1 GIVEAWAY BULLSHIT!! LOOK INSIDE!!Okay, guys... I don't know if it's just me that has noticed this god-awful trend here on dA, but what's up with the 100-point giveaways on the front page of popular journals lately?100 POINT/$1 GIVEAWAY BULLSHIT!! LOOK INSIDE!!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
They all go something like this:
- Add me to your watch list to be aware of future giveaways;
- Add this journal to your list
- Write a journal about this giveaway (Optional).
And the best part? They all average for 200 comments at the end of their life span.
So, what's wrong with this, you may ask? Well. We are talking about TWO HUNDRED PEOPLE BEGGING FOR ONE FUCKING DIGITAL DOLLAR NOT REDEEMABLE OUTSIDE OF DEVIANTART. ONE. FUCKING. DOLLAR.
Did I say that loud enough? One dollar. That's what 100 points are roughly worth.
And what do those people who hold these giveaways get for one dollar?
Let me show you by quoting rule nr. 1:
- Add me to your watch list to be aware of future giveaways

Off the deviantart gridHey guys!Off the deviantart grid1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Slowly, but steady with small doses of doubt I came to conclusion I will be moving away from deviantart with my art. After almost 10 years, multiple accounts, ups and downs deviantart doesn't stand for what I want to stand for. Thus I will be no longer treating this profile as site of importance.
I appreciate each and every one of you watching me here, so I still will gladly try to respond to your comments and shouts :) My new art will appear mostly on other sites. I am no longer accepting commissions via deviantart, notes nor I will be announcing them here. If you'd like to talk/ask a question - please use my email listed below as I most likely won't be looking into my notes anymore. If you are interested in my art and what I do, feel free to check links below. I am still here from time to time as I gladly watch other deviantart artists. So my favourites will most likely stay active.

BJD Doll FAQBJD Doll FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please read this if you are interested to learn more about the dolls I photograph. I dont have time to keep answering the same questions over and over again >_< I will be updating this journal entry as time goes on. Feel free to add a question in the comments section and I will try to answer it.
❤ BASICS ❤
What are these dolls?
They are BJD - ball jointed dolls. If you search Google with those keywords you will get plenty of results with companies and other info about them. This is the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball-jointed_doll. Also this LJ answers some questions too http://bjd-wtf.livejournal.com/ . If you want to learn more, I would suggest Den of Angels forum (http://www.denofangels.com/forums/).
Do you make them?
No I don't make the actual doll, I don't sculpt it. I am a customizer, I paint their faceups. I am basically a makeup artist for resin dolls. You can find the link to my commission shop
Tutorial Class!Hey creeps!Tutorial Class!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get messages daily asking how I do what I do... and it's hard to explain in an e-mail. It normally ends up sounding like, "well, you know, you just... draw... a thing you like..." So it gets difficult to explain things like using a light table, detailing multiple sketches, how to choose an effective composition, or the mysterious things I do in Photoshop.
Well, my darling creeps, I have good news.
I was approached a few weeks ago by the fabulously enthusiastic people at SKILLSHARE to teach a class specifically on my style, and how to develop your own. They're filming me while I go through my steps, and I get to walk each student through it. Killer.
How this works is you enroll in my class on Skillshare: http://skl.sh/18l2qyx
and once the class goes live at the end of December, you'll see my video tutorials, class projects, challenges, and prizes at the end of the course!

artist's block - BREAK IT! The recurring question “how do I break this artist's block”, we’ve all hit that wall where we just can’t find a way to get anything out, and if we do it’s just rubbish we can hardly bare to admit we created. There are many causes of artist’s block, and luckily many cures!artist's block - BREAK IT!5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Sometimes we're not inspired, this is probably the hardest to overcome because you can't always just make yourself get up and go get inspired. Another reason people hit this block is because they're just bored with what they're doing. Below are a few ways to break either of those causes, use one method, use four whatever you want and whatever it takes. You can get through it.
Take a break; seriously. This is my first suggestion give yourself a little bit to think, relax, rejuvenate and simply be blocked for a minute, hour or a day or two. Unless you’re in some rush to get it done take advantage of this step. Sometimes your brain just

LIGHTBOXLIGHTBOX4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello there again!
Some time ago I have made for myself a home-made lightbox... out of an old scanner. It needed few work and now is really useful! I used it a lot while drawing illustrations for Anarion.
Luckily my Patrick is good in all this electric/technical stuff, so he connected those bulbs and cables together Okay, he really made most of the work here, mine was just the idea And yes, I know that fluorescent light might be better than regular bulbs, but now it nicely warms the hands. With some additional sheets of paper under the drawing it really works nice.

You may do whatever comes to mind, as long as it shows Regina being happy in some way.
That includes everything from her as the Evil Queen being delighted over some mischief, to her spending time with Henry, or you could show her with whoever you ship her with, whether it’s Emma or Daniel or someone else entirely! Or maybe she’s having a blast trolling the inhabitants of Storybrooke, it’s all for you to decide!
Just some ideas to get your inspiration flowing, but everything is allowed for this contest, as long as it follows the theme.
I hope a lot of people participate, but most of all that you have fun! I can't wait to see what you can come up with, and I would like to wish everyone good luck in the contest!

That's why I uploaded this tutorial today: How to make gems.
How to work step by step:
What materials do you need:
- resin and hardener

- maybe a scale
- silicone mold for/ of stones (I bought it on etsy)

What Did You Just Say???After drawing "The Artist" I realized how much I miss drawing. Summer is my slow season for commissions, I only have a few for June-August, so I decided to take on a bit of a side project.What Did You Just Say???2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm around small children 24 hours a day. Besides my own son, who is three, I have quite a few mini dance student, nieces, nephews, the list goes on. I find myself constantly saying things that I never in my life thought would come out of my mouth. "Stop riding the turtle or we're going home!", "no, pickles do not go there", and my person favorite from a friend "stop licking the cat and get his tail out of your nose!".
So, my idea is to start illustrating these WHAT DID I JUST SAY?!? moments. Maybe on day compile them into a children's book, who knows? I'd like to know what ridiculous things have you found yourself saying to the children in your life. What were the circumstances that made you say it?
I think we could get some really interesting picture
Eye Eye!My name is Max and I am an eye whore. I confess. My obsession is how to get the most realistic eyes possible for my little resin monsters. I have posted information about this obsession all over the show and felt, for the sake of extending my nerdiness, I should collect it all in one place. And that place is here, you lucky, lucky people.Eye Eye!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My emphasis here is on realistic eyes for adult dolls, so the focus will be on small, photorealistic irises. There are many other sorts of eyes available that meet the needs of those who prefer a stylised, youthful or fantasy look. This is not my field and I won't be touching on that sort of stuff here. There is enough in this thing not to mess with that.
I am always keen to gather more eye-related information, particularly on the eye types I have least experience of, such as urethane and resin, so post thoughts, ideas and recommendations and, if it excites or informs, I will add it to this thing here.

Getting Noticed in dAEveryday, millions of users from all over the world use deviantART, and it is really hard for new users to get themselves noticed. Oh yes, it is HARD. It can actually be a really disappointing experience for some of us. But, if you show some patience and work for it, you may just be able to crack through that wall standing between you and exposure to the community. Remember, all it take is patience. Lots and lots of patience. Oh, and you also need to trust yourself. Just because you couldn't get a huge fan base in several weeks or months doesn't mean that you will never get them. But, there are some really important stuff you need to follow first before getting there.Getting Noticed in dA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
