Manga/Anime Tutorial Hub: Drawing AnimeSo what's this all about? A while back I decided that it would be best to create a place where tutorials that are vital to Manga/Anime artists to have a home, an easy place to reach if they felt that they ever needed it. One by one articles featuring tutorials based off of specific trades and mediums will be posted, and in the end a master article that'll unite them all together. The hope is to have as much as possible in one easy to reach place. This time around its Drawing Anime's turn.Manga/Anime Tutorial Hub: Drawing Anime4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Awesome Contest!:iconmeisterkidd: :iconsaysplz:Awesome Contest!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys, I'm breaking down and starting up a contest. Below is all the information you'll need.
To win you have to either 1) draw one of my OC's (in your own style, please. I don't want carbon copies of my own pictures) or 2) write a story involving one or more of my OC's. (My OC's will be included at the bottom of this post along with some basic information about them). You can also mix in some of your own characters.
Every contest has them. This one is no different, and please be aware that I will not bend them.
contest starts 7/26 and continues through 8/26 (though the date will be extended if there are not enough entries.)
watching me or favoriting one of my works will not increase your chances.
ONE submission per person. Multiple entries will not increase your chances.
If you opt to write instead of draw, please be aware that two or three paragraphs won't cut it. I want a good read.

How to run Paint Tool Sai on Windows 10So I'm sure some of you have been upgrading to Windows 10 because it's fresh and new and NOT WINDOWS 8!! lol. But more of you have not been upgrading because of things like my previous journal where Paint Tool Sai does not work. Well, i've done some research and thanks to a commenter on a Youtube video, I found this easy fix to get Paint Tool Sai working 100%! (and give more people a reason to upgrade to Windows 10) (Upgrade... do it... 10 is best! )How to run Paint Tool Sai on Windows 101 month ago in Personal More Like This
Lets start with my desktop.
As you can see I have Sai highlighted because it didn't work when i tried to open it. As a matter of fact, NOTHING happened.
So right click on the icon either on your desktop or start menu. the taskbar icon only wants you to remove it from the taskbar so don't try it there.
Click on Troubleshoot Compatibility and let it detect what's wrong.
It will ask you to

How to get the most out of your keywordsThe keywords of your prints play an important role in how your artwork is discovered using our Print Shop's search feature. This will enable you to search through the prints available on deviantART using their keywords. Here are some tips for using keywords that will help people find your work:How to get the most out of your keywords8 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Use as many words as you can
The more words you use, the more times your print will be viewed. Let's say, for instance, you are posting an image of some lovely roses. Some keywords you may use are "roses, flowers, plants, nature, Valentine's Day, romance, love, gift, bouquet, red, bloom, blossoms..." and anything else you can think of (while keeping it relevant, of course).
Keep them on topic
Sure, putting in "Harry Potter" and "hot girls" will get you more hits; however, there is a very slim chance the people searching for those words are going to buy your print if it doesn't have to do with the subject they've searched for. Try to keep your keywords rel
Tuesday Tips #3 SkinsHello Folks!Tuesday Tips #3 Skins2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Welcome to the third edition of Tuesday tips.
By popular demand today we will be talking about Deviant art Skins.
Now many of you must have wondered how do we get all these colorful banners, and lovely background on all those journal entries. Today you will know the secret!
The main magical item behind these skins is: C.S.S.
Now I won't go into the technicalities of it but C.S.S. is like a rule book you made for your journal. You tell it to follow certain rules and it will do just that.
Now a CSS rule has two main parts to it:
This is the part of your journal that should follow the rule. For instance lets say the title of your journal.
This part includes the rules your selector has to follow. For instance lets say that the title has to be red in color.
Now many people who even after knowing the basic rules of CSS find it very hard to edit their journal skin. For this reason AskGooroo has given us this good guide t

Hi - so I'm starting new series of journals with useful resources - mainly because I'm running out of topics to write about and I just like some diversity. (I'll continue to post general art/motivational journals too every now and then)

'Level up!' is an idea of two Polish artists - Wojtek Fus ( WojciechFus ) and Darek Zabrocki ( daRoz ), who want to teach and learn from each other.

How to Improve your Drawings Outside of DrawingCommunity WeekHow to Improve your Drawings Outside of Drawing5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
If you've ever read articles about how to improve your art, you're sure to have heard one thing over and over - practice, practice, practice! While this is most definitely correct and undeniably crucial, I find that a big part of my improvement actually comes from the things I do outside of drawing.
What are these "things", you say?
First off, before you try to improve your art, you need to...
Have the right mindset
Understand and acknowledge these points:
Improvement is hard work. You will need to put in a lot of effort to achieve good results.
Improvement takes time - and it comes in small steps. You cannot fly to excellence in a week - nor a month.
There will always be people better than you and you will inevitably fail once in a while. Don't dwell on this - instead, learn as much as you can from it.
You will need to take advice with an open mind. Learn from critiques and do not be offended if they are harsh - the more mistakes people point out

[Tutorial] Creating Dialed Projection MorphsA dialed projection morph is one that you can dial into the character's body and have it only show up in the clothes they wear, not the character themselves. This tutorial was requested. Please feel free to leave questions and I'll do my best to answer them and/or edit the tutorial to be clearer.[Tutorial] Creating Dialed Projection Morphs1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This is the method I used to create the Female Clothing Smoothers. I am not concerned about sharing it because it's quite a bit of work to get it working correctly; this I consider an "advanced" tutorial. You need to already know how to use modeling software and Morph Loader Pro in DS before you even think about trying this.
You will need:
Modeling software, and intimate knowledge of how to use its sculpting and modeling features; I use Blender.
DAZ Studio 4.6 or later. You should have loaded a morph at least once at some point using Morph Loader Pro.

Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!

currently: taking brief break
A few days ago I was trying to remember how I used a tool in DAZ Studio to add material zones to a set of demon wings a while back, and after a little search, I found a very simple tutorial that explained how.
This is something every DAZ Studio user should look at, it's easy and very useful. It's not only useful for adding new material zones; you can also hide selected polygons - great for hiding walls or other objects in the way of your perfect camera angle.
You may also find a few more tips regarding this tool in a thread I started here:
I'm still feeling a little under the weather, but I'll get back to that demoness pinup soon. Thanks as always for visiting!

And I decided to make more useful journals You have to wait for my next tutorial A LOT, so I decided to make short tutorials here...in journals. I'll describe some Photoshop basics for all newbies who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: How to make layers, How to change color to a layer, How to make groups/folders, How to change background color, How to rotate canvas and all basics in tool menu on the right side. In this tutorial I used my newest image Mermaid's Wisps, just to show you few things (I just had to open something )
If you wish to see images in full resolution then simply click on the images below (they are big as my screen 1920 x 1080px... OK I cropped bar below ). I used Photoshop CS6 here, so some things may be different in lower PS versions. I'll make even more tutorials l

While I am terrible at explaining hopefully it will help ya'll out to finding your own shading style.
Though I don't really mind if you completely copy mine, it's a pretty generic and common method.

Only its kinda sped up not sorry. LOL
