art tips? I get asked a lot to make tutorials, to teach people this or that when it comes to art, or a certain thing I like to draw.art tips?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not a teacher, or an expert guys. I am just some random chick who likes to draw a lot and who practices drawing a lot. I don't think I would be very good at teaching or explaining. I cannot give out information like a teacher would. On paws or anatomy. I am no expert. However, I do give advice though, and my advice is usually the same.
If you want to draw a certain animal, research the animal. Watch documentaries, look up anatomy sketches, and photographs that inspire you. Even inspiring art, something that puts you in the mindset and gives you understanding of the animal. Research the animal inside and out to get the full understanding of it's anatomy, movements, attitude, weight, expressions, body language, markings, proportions, everything. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Learn it all. And then sketch and sketch an
League of Legends TCGI'm designing a League of Legends card game purely for my own amusement, because I have a job now and it involves sitting at a computer for 8 hours a day and not being able to go on facebook. The majority of the game mechanics are inspired by Magic: The Gathering, although I'm trying to tweak it to apply to LoL's unique playstyle.

Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)Hi,Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
today it was the worst ZOO visit ever.
This spring I noticed that the molting (process of loosing the thick winter fur and having just much shorter summer fur) of the wolves is very different from the molting I witnessed during the last years. The wolves looked ill, like having scabs on their faces and bodies.
It made me nervous, so I was curious about my today's visit. I planned to shoot baby wolves.
What I saw shocked me.
ALL the pack members seem to have some skin problems. Less or more serious, all of them are effected, showing symptoms. I do not know if it is mange or so, but it looks horrible. Two wolves (and I am VERY afraid the most ill one is Atila) have almost bare bodies, they lost almost all the fur. All of them keep scratching. What a horrible, horrible sight, I almost cried there even the tiny puppy is ill, it was born just few weeks ago, but I see its legs show the signs of the same illness.
I hope the vets will find the cure.
I am soooo down since I saw them toda

If not, they should. Google them, see their style, study them. You man not like all of them, or none actually, but they are one of the bests, and studying after them, helps you get better a lot more faster!
I have placed direct links to some of their works. But in the case of Glen Vilppu, I find his lectures much more useful. They are around 1h each, so you'd have to look them up yourself and download.
But a sort of preview can be found in that link on youtube.

The raffle is OPEN!!!
(Scroll down for more details. )
The raffle ends this Sunday night at 11:59pm PDT (Pacific Daylight Time)! I'll be drawing the winners on Monday evening. Good luck and thanks for entering!
It was just brought to my attention that this raffle may be against DA's rules and policy. I'm still waiting for a reply from the help desk, but if this is indeed against the rules, I will refund everyone's points. So far, it's my assumption that DA doesn't want people entering points with the hope of winning more points and/or actual money. But if it's entered for a subscription, or a picture, it seems to be all right.

Artisan Craft and Copyright LawArtisan Craft and Copyright LawArtisan Craft and Copyright Law1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
As a Community Volunteer I spend a lot of time pouring through the Artisan Crafts galleries looking for art that deserves a bigger audience. I dig through every little hidden corner of the galleries looking at every type of craft, made by everyone from the most watched members to the day old newbies. And every time I do this, I have to double check it all for originality.
My time doing this had shed light on a massive problem inherent in the AC galleries: copyright violation
Now, I'm not talking about the obvious I-stole-your-picture-and-uploaded-it violations. I'm talking about something much more subtle, to the point it feels like most of the perpetrators don't actually realise they're doing it. I'm often about to give someone a DD, until I read their description and find it completely devoid of credit. Rather than getting a site-wide feature, these artists end up on my blacklist instead. It all boils dow

Kick@$$ Gijinka Contest WINNERS!April 3 - May 3Kick@$$ Gijinka Contest WINNERS!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Update 5/11/15: The winners of the Design A Kick@$$ Gijinka Contest have been decided! Click the link below to see the results~
It's about time for another Kick@$$ contest!
This year's theme: GIJINKERS!
I enjoy reading gijinka comics as much as the next person, but it seems that I can never be bothered to design gijinka versions of my own pokemon OC's. I've done a few rough concepts in the past, but nothing really official (save for Shii). So I thought, "Why not host a gijinka designing contest~?"
Honestly, I've been playing with this idea for over a year, and it's a good opportunity for you guys, because participants could potentially win a premium membership, dA points, or a chance to have their design featured in an extended, fully colored Kick@$$ bonus comic!
If that doesn't sound enticing, then I don't know what does!

I've been asked about this recently, so thought I'd write about it just in case someone else might relate or find it encouraging.
A lot of people are surprised to hear that I have only been painting since 2011. Well, it's true . I had coloured a few line arts here and there before that, but I never really tried at painting. I was dabbling and just slapping on colour, not bothering to figure out the programs or anything. Because I truly didn't believe I could do it.
Backing up a bit, I'm someone who was a traditional artist. I have been drawing with pencils and paper since I was just a little tyke. Naturally, I wanted everything to do with art in school. :iconhandsomeonionplz:
And that's where this little tale turns dark and mildly depressing :icon0inuscreamplz:

*Make another journal featuring this one
*Comment the journal you made here
*Give me a watch
*Favorite this journal (optional, but will give you another entry)
The first place winner will receive the 8,000 points!
