The Pokemon Trainers Twitter/Tumblr/dA CollabHey all!The Pokemon Trainers Twitter/Tumblr/dA Collab1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As some of you may know, I'm hosting a Twitter-based collab where artists on Twitter claim a Pokémon trainer/NPC. The spots have been filling steadily, but there's still 157 characters to claim, so I'm opening the collab to Tumblr and deviantART folks to participate.
Here's your chance to grab one of the spots and participate in this massive collab!
The list of available characters can be found here.
You can claim your character by contacting me on Twitter at AlexandraSketch. Spots will be given on a first come, first serve basis. Don’t start your image until I have messaged you back confirming you have the character, though.

The company that produces the snack Pocky has set 11/11 as "Pocky's Day" just to celebrate with randomness.
Conspiracy of snack companies, I know lol
You can check out their website, and see how much derp they have done so far!
I'm just joining the bandwagon to celebrate this random event for fun and have some excuses to eat pockys lol
As I have posted on my poll few days ago, I'm going to keep my words and hold "POCKY DAY FEATURES"
Anyone is welcome to join - all you gotta do is submit a deviation that's related to Pocky, and give me the link to it (you can just leave it as a comment on this journal or note me.). Then I'll be more than happy to feature it for you on my journal!

Anatomy FAQA lot of people have been noting me things about anatomy, like how I learned, can I help, and so on and so forth. Now I am happy to answer any and all questions you have regarding the matter but here are some questions that pop up quite frequently.Anatomy FAQ2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Q: How did you learn anatomy?
A Ahah, it was a very long and arduous journey. Once upon a time I belonged to an oekaki group (I was 10), and in that group I submitted a picture of a dog (I think) and someone told me my anatomy sucked face (they were right). Now at the time, said someone was a pretty good artist in comparison. So when they said my anatomy sucked, I took it to heart. Instead of letting their rude comment get to me, I decided I'd kick their ass and become 10,000 times better than they were at this "anatomy". Moral of the story... I AM BETTER NOW *EVIL LAUGHTER*.
But yes, that's what got me started... as for how I learned... I drew my dogs and my cat a lot back when I was 11ish. Then when I started on humans I woul

Sadly, I have a really limited free time and aren't able to reply to everyone-- So now, I'm putting up this journal to reply to frequently asked questions to help it out a bit!! I'll try my best to reply to everything as long as they aren't inappropriate or rude!! I'll put the relevant ones in the journal itself.
I'll be waiting! (I'll add a few common ones myself).
1.- What program and tablet do you use to draw?
-I use SAI paint tools and an Wacom Intuos 4 medium size Bamboo Fun (my intuos died ;_.
2.- What is the common size of your canvas?
- The standard size I use is A3 preset 350 dpi, then I go modifying it as I draw.
3.- Have you ever taken classes of art? Are you studying art right now?
- Nope. Everything I know about was pretty much self taugh
Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.Hi everyone! It's been awhile. This post is a little important so I have a feeling im going to be making it a little long... Also, I'm doing it from my phone. So, there may be weird typos.Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you don't wanna read the whole thing here's a basic summary:
I left DA because of Internet hate which brought down my confidence; I got a lot of hate the same day I found out my grandfather died which really made it worse, I planned on coming back the beginning of January but I was hospitalized because of a bowel obstruction and I am still currently in the hospital and plan to come back mid February. Also I feel like shit.
Long version: I guess I'll start... With why I left. It's a really complex reason and I really hope everyone will understand, but I think there might be some people who just won't. And by that I mean, I am aware I have a handfull of followers who might feel neutral about my art rather than full out liking it. Or maybe I'm just talking about the people who don't really like my ar

Small RantUhg I'm so tired of seeing artists under selling themselves cause there's cheap asses out there who seem to have no sense of value.Small Rant2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To artists: Don't undersell yourself. If you spend hours on a picture for someone who only paid you $5... stop. Seriously you under selling yourself just to get a commission shouldn't happen. I understand that you might think you're not popular enough to get tons of commissions so you think that if you sell them for really cheap people will buy them, but who cares! If you spend 4 hours on a picture worth $5 you've essentially paid your commissioner with your life. You might as well open up requests! Charge what your art is worth!! You not only hurt yourself but everyone else. The reason you have to sell your art for chump change is because everyone else is selling it for chump change. Also, why are you drawing primarily for money anyway? It's not exactly a good job. Heck most of us don't even make minimum wage ((myself included)), so what a rewardin

What exactly is this "job" I kept mentioning for the past months:
Abu Dhabi's first anime has revealed a 1-minute trailer back in April:
I proudly want to say I'm a part of the team behind it.
Studio Kontrabida, the studio behind the game Last Class Heroes, have invited me back in December to join them and help work with an anime in partners with Alter Ego Productions.
And of course, I accepted the offer. And it's been a blast since then. (cliche line, but really, it's an awesome work)

UtaPri CONTEST starts! Rules~Thank you very much to lovely people, who helped me with prizes, so I finally may to write rules a dates//UtaPri CONTEST starts! Rules~3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, the theme of this contest is Music ART!
You need to draw a work listening to one of this composition about love (and several of them about suffer and something like that). Usually, songs have something like a plot, so just understand it and draw the art about this song~~
The decision about particularly THIS theme was clear - Uta no Prince-sama is anime about music ^U^
All difficulty of this contest depends on the different random songs' plots and how you may draw UtaPri characters in this situation (music situation) using draw skills and your imagination
It will be okay to draw UtaPri guys in the count what you want ^U^ If you'd like to draw a couple, it will be AWESOME really!
The best way is to draw a classic couple (Haruka+somebody), not shounen-ai one

A fictional tale taking place in another world, the last living world of mortals, Terrum Mortalis (I like Latin). The world was once accompanied by various other worlds that have since died out due to a catastrophic war amongst the deities known as "Stars". The only reason Terrum still exists is due to one of the 3 great stars who sacrificed themselves in order to preserve the last remaining mortal world. This event is known as the death of the Wishing Star, and all other stars seemed to vanis
Favorite Journal Entries that you may have missedHiya Ryceballs. You know, other than drawings and putting up polls about showers, there's one other thing that I love doing on Deviantart, and that is writing journals! I love writing stuff, sharing my thoughts, sharing stories, ranting about stuff, making fun of stuff, doing top 10s. And I have been told that people likes reading it, that definately puts a smile on my beautiful face. But but but but butt I do know that some of you are new to my Deviantart! And maybe some of you just missed some journals, in total I have over 400 journal entries so far so I wouldn't blame ya for missing them! SOOO I have decided to pick some journals of mine that I like and share it with you guys once again. This may be nostalgic for those who followed me since day 1, and something refreshing for those who has never read them before.

bro who is growing in the art of art. This is going to be fun and my little brther
has no idea I'm doing this. So when I'm done I'm going to show all the entries to
him and he'll love every one of them and probably will talk about it for weeks.
It's all going to be worth it because I know he'll get his silly little grin on his face
and wont be able to control himself.
The theme for this contest as you probably already know, is drawing my little
bros characters. There are three to chose from and all you have to do is make a
swell picture of that character and enter it!
IT HAS TO BE APPROPRIATE. This is for an eight year old so use your head
and it'll be easy.
You can have three entries. Though if you're doing three you need to make each pi
