Soft Mount Tutorial, Leg ArmaturesI finally took some time to make what (I hope) is a decent tutorial on how I make the leg armatures in my soft mounts, because I've had so many people asking me how I do it! And I don't know how to livestream stuff so I figured I would just videotape the process of working on my latest coyote, so that way I can just send the link to anyone who asks in the future. It's a long process, and I admit its not the most exciting video to watch, but I edited it down to a tolerable length, so hopefully you can learn a thing or two from it!Soft Mount Tutorial, Leg Armatures8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Important: Have you Notified your Stock Providers?Hi all,Important: Have you Notified your Stock Providers?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just wanted to take a quick moment out from registering people for the Photomanipulation Tournament to bring to your attention an issue that is plaguing our community.
I think a lot of people think that, with the new Mentions system, there is no need to notify stock providers when you use their work. This is untrue! There are a few of reasons why you still need to notify them via note or comment, as per their preference, when you use their stock:
1. Some people turn their Mentions off because they get to be annoying. Thus, if you don't tell them, they may never see your gorgeous work.
2. Stock providers like to keep track of your work, and notes/comments help with that.
3. If your stock provider doesn't see your work, he/she can't give you love!

How to get popular on DeviantArtHi I would like to give you some ideas of how to get yourself noticed and pump up your pageviews organically without the aid of viewbots and advertising.How to get popular on DeviantArt6 months ago in Personal More Like This
First of all it's important to present your work in a way that is clean and professional, the first thing people look at when they look at a piece of art is quality of your work, it's all good that you are taking pictures of your art but there are simple ways to do so without fancy equipment.
-Take a picture of your work outside at mid-day when the sun is at it's highest, the reason for this is that it eliminates shadows from your work, you need light to hit your canvas/pad from all areas, also if you have used materials that reflect light (e.g Graphite) try and move the canvas/pad around slightly so that it removes the reflections.
Now that you have taken a picture of your work find an editing software like Photoshop (don't worry if you cannot afford this, down
Pandoraverse FAQHey all. I just wanna answer some commonly asked questions about the Pandoraverse and my art and stuffPandoraverse FAQ6 months ago in Personal More Like This
How was Pandora born?
Pandora's conception is truly one those classic tales of romance. Discord falls in love with Twilight Sparkle, they marry, Discord pops a magic egg out one day at breakfast time with Twilight. Pandora hatches from it a few weeks later. Wait did I say it was a classic tale of romance? No i meant it was a kinda weird and random tale of romance
When does the Pandoraverse take place in the MLP timeline?
Pandoraverse is an alternate story timeline occuring a few years after Season 4 of MLP. A marked difference would be that Twilight's tree library was not destroyed by Tirek, and that her Season 5 crystal castle does not exist in the Pandoraverse. Why? Mostly cuz I don't wanna draw that crystal castle thing, if I'm being honest. Anyway, most of the events occurring in Season 5 won't be referenced in the Pandoraverse storyline. Neither will events

I don't think there is one way to get a book or a film made. There are many different roads, but it always helps to get your art out there.

Movie Talk: Animated Movie Poster/Cover RantSince my journal needs an update i thought hey, why not posting this here, too. This is an art site after all and should be interesting to you as well.Movie Talk: Animated Movie Poster/Cover Rant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am someone who might be called a "cineaste" - because it's true. I friggin' LOVE movies. I love watching them, collecting them, doing research, listening to audio commentaries and learning about the backgrounds. And i always had a soft spot for animated motion pictures. Still do. Disney is awesome, so is Dreamworks and the not so wellknown ones.
Lately i went through my DVD-Collection once more and...i just realised again how MUCH i despise the awful covers that go along with most of the animated movie DVD releases. Especially when i recall the original theatrical posters - which are all (design wise) of sheer BRILLIANCE, full of power and emotion and actually dignify the movie's content. Not to be compared with the cheap DVD covers. Little comparison for you to see what i mean - because i felt like doing one.
Where my materials come from...I have gotten many questions about this....so I thought I would clear it up a bitWhere my materials come from...8 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in a very small village in Northern Alaska. I also grew up in even a smaller village. The thing is, we have no roads. So all of the food for the stores come through airplane. As a consequence, food is very very expensive, because we are also paying for it to be shipped by air.
Jobs are scarce here. And more than 75% of them are taken by people who are not from here and/or don't even live here. So money is rare.
We are also part of a movement to keep our culture alive. In this day and and age filled with computers, airplanes, drugs, and other impending situations including the decimation of our numbers....it is a struggle to hold onto what little there is left. And even harder because the younger generations do not hold it dear.
All of my natural materials come from the animals we harvest for food, or from ani

Good artI've seen a lot of people claim they know what "good art" is or isn't, so I I'll just add my two cents.Good art7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I spent a very long time trying to make my own art more realistic (never got close to realism, but there was an attempt) but then I realized I didn't even like realistic art and the only reason I was trying to achieve it was because others had told me that's what I should strive for.
It's not that I think realistic art is bad or that other people are wrong for liking it. I can most certainly see the appeal of it. It's simply that I'm personally not that interested in it. When I see realistic art I tend to not notice the work put into it. It's more like a photo to me, even if it includes a lot of fantastical elements. Again, that's what a lot of people like about it, and that's great. I just happen to like when a drawing is unapologetic about being a drawing, like the styles of Bjørn Wiinblad and Tove Jansson.
There are only two things I personally think are important to learn wh

Background TipsHey all! I've gotten a few people asking me about advice for drawing backgrounds. So instead of being a true gentleman and writing each person back separately, I figure it's easier to tackle this with an nice, impersonal journal post! Maybe one day I'll shoot a tutorial or something to actually demonstrate what I'm talking about, but for now a quick list will have to do.Background Tips4 years ago in Personal More Like This
*Before I start, a quick disclaimerby no means do I have "it" figured out. My opinions on backgrounds and how to tackle them are always changing. And a lot of what I think is based on the artists on whose shoulders I stand upon. Feel free to disagree with any of this.
Remember those point-and-click adventure games from the 90s? I loved those games! Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Flashback, Full Throttle, Space Quest, Hero Questadventure games blew me away by how beautiful, imaginative and expansi

Contest!I am strangely fascinated by half finished pictures. I love the way that in amongst all the rough sketching there is a section of shaded, finished 3D image and it makes me think pencils are amazing.Contest!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So! I decided to host a Half Finished Contest!
-the final piece must only be half finished, for example a girl in a dress where only the dress is finished and shaded and the girl is still sketch, or the girl is finished and the dress is sketched.
-But I don't want WIPs, I want pictures that look intentionally unfinished.
-It must be in a traditional medium.
Since this is the contest for PencilsPlusArtists I doubt it'll be particularly big, so the prizes will only be small.
1st Place: 3 Months Premium Membership
2nd Place: 600 points
3rd Place: 200 points
All of these will also recieve a llama badge and a feature on my page.
Send me a link to your picture or post it to the Competition folder here at PencilsPlusArtists. Feel free to ask any questions you'd like.

FAQsHey did you know it's really rude to go up to someone and sayFAQs4 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hey I love what you're doing! I don't want to pay for it though. Tell me how to do it so I can try myself."
If I had a shop you wouldn't come into it and ask for all my secrets, would you? The same applies here. Don't get butthurt when I give you a grumpy rebuke - this is my living!
1. How do you attach the fimo to the fur?
I glue it on with hot glue or bostik multi-purpose. Some artists like to make holes in the sculpt and sew it on.
2. How do you dye fake fur?
You CAN'T! It's impoooosiblleeeee. I tried masses of "confirmed" techniques, involving messy and sometimes stinky dyes, and none of them really worked. The best way I have found is to use dylon fabric paints and just brush them with a nail brush. Here's a video tutorial that is along the same lines, although I wouldn't use acrylic paint personally: http://youtu.be/RPA8Y6GcD6E My favourite method is to buy fabric in the right colour
