My deviantART StoryIt has now been over 10 years since I first decided to join deviantART and little did I know then, this decision would end up forging my entire life and career.My deviantART Story4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I wish I remembered exactly how it all started, but I'm going to go with my best guess and say I heard about it from another student when I started college back when I had just turned 18. Up until then I had been using various art forums such as wcreplays.com, animex.com, sijun.com and cgsociety.org so the discovery of a portfolio website was a pretty cool thing.
I started posting on here and got moderate attention, I had been drawing for a long time at that point so my art was in a state where it was at least interesting to look at. If anything it was a fantastic place to get inspiration and look at art from amazingly talented artists.
It wasn't until I decided to color the line-art for the following piece that everything really started.

Liam Sharp was and is one of the most sought after comic artists in the business. After bursting on the scene by drawing the bestselling Marvel UK title of all time, Death Head II, he was back in America illustrating top line comics like Superman, Batman and Spiderman as well as special projects for people like Stan Winston. For anyone unfamiliar with his amazing work, his galleries can be found on deviantART. I recently got lost for an entire day perusing a single file of his Conan illustrations.

Stupid Spider.I hate spiders. I really hate them. So much so that I have a kill-on-sight policy regarding them.Stupid Spider.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don't even have that for wasps, and they're real bastards.
I think it's because spiders actively try to invade your personal space.
At least, that's what I always assumed they were doing.
After seeing this, it's hard for me to maintain my view that they're 8-legged masterminds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLw-9dpHtcU

se van alejando ya
Ángeles fuimos y desde el cielo
semillas dimos de amor
La tristeza de éste mundo se borró
y viendo el cielo azul
la amistad y el amor siempre brillaron y hoy también lo harán
Mis alas no tengo
pero conmigo tengo aún el poder
En tu pupila, el arcoíris se reflejó
y el amor florece en tu corazón
Sigue teniendo fe y esperanza
en que el mañana va a cambiar
Éste desierto se transformará
paraíso es lo que pronto será
Abre tu corazón, la magía y el amor
Pasa el tiempo y en tu mirada
inocencia puedo ver
Eres la misma de aquel recuerdo
de nuestra bella niñez
Y volando por las nubes lograrás
la luna al fin tocar
Recorriendo jardines infinitos
por la eternidad
Ya la magia es nuestra
nunca nadie romperá
los bellos lazos de nuestra amistad
En tu pupila

A lot of people want to learn to draw and paint better but they just don't know where to start. You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them. When you know what you want to improve, searching for a good tip gets even easier.

How To Deal With ART BLOCKSOk, if you guys are still wondering, this post may help you. Its just a way I go on about it.How To Deal With ART BLOCKS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, what is an art block? Just like writer's block, an artist gets an art block. Its a state where you either; can't think of anything to draw, your drawings turn out crap, you're just not getting your drawings right, or just uninspired.
So how do I deal with it?
The very first thing you MUST do is to actually STOP DRAWING. This is your brain telling you to take a break.
If you force yourself out of an art block, it ALWAYS shows. It will look rushed or unthought of.
Second, is try and do something else NOT related to art/creativity... Go for a run, watch TV, read a book, play games, see friends etc.
Third; try and listen to music. Calm your brain and get rid of your thought process. Music is a way of simulation, sometimes you will get inspiration from it.
If you have an idea of what sort of thing you're after but just cant get it right in the end, this is where I think music helps. E
Art Process / Tutorial Videos available now!Alright guys, I have something new for you which you have been asking for years.Art Process / Tutorial Videos available now!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
The amount of time it takes to do a tutorial, the bandwidth it takes to upload it (some files well over 550MB), the sapce to host some of the files, and many other considerations usually hindered me from making them.
I have changed my Patreon over to a tutorial / process video site!
Now for a pledge of only 1USD per post, you will get not a youtube link, but an actual downloadable video for you to keep along with the full size PSD file with layers! The videos will range between 30 - 90 minutes and are 720pi. The PSD file is well over 2500pi tall/wide.
There is a video I have just posted right now! When you guys become patrons, you can suggest things you want to see and I will try to make as many videos as I can, but I need your support otherwise I will stop since I have to work.
I wasn considering making assignments, doing marker stuff, backgrounds, and just whatever

Getting into comics is something a lot of people want to know how to do, but there's a lot of questions you want to ask yourself first. There is such a vast array of genre and sub-genre, technique, approach, and so on, that it's important to be clear where you want to go with your work at the outset – and you have to be REALLY honest and tough on yourself.
Do you want to draw:
If you're into the capes and tights and you want to go mainstream you're going to have to want it incredibly badly, as the competition is the most extreme I've ever known it right now. There seems to be more titles than ever - and with the digital revolution more people are capable of producing sleek, mainstream quality art - but right across the

The Key is in Your Head
“The Secret Garden” was a serialized children’s story, by Frances Hodgson Burnett, written in 1910—11. It’s all about a troubled little girl coming alive in a secret place she alone has found the key to. Today, one’s “secret garden” evokes any place a person goes to be alone with their most private thoughts—that place sometimes existing only in mind in fantasy or memory.
“Of course there must be lots of Magic in the world,” he said wisely one day, “but people don't know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are goi

About BJDs (the dolls) in general.
--- Do you make these dolls?
No. I buy them and customise them the way I want.
--- What is the name of these dolls?
They are called BJD (Ball Jointed Doll). This is kind of a refference name to reffer to this specific kind of doll.
--- Ok, BJD is a general name. So how do the nomenclature of specific BJD works?
No BJD company actually has a doll line called Ball Jointed Doll (although they do use this therm). Each company that makes BJDs call they're own dolls with di
