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.

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
My Comic(s)So people have been asking where my comic is since I mentioned it would be released in September. Well, I also anticipated having a Cintiq 13HD, but that didn't happen. So all I have is a script of the first few chapters and some rough sketches done. I will be getting a Cintiq at the end of October (I preordered it, not gonna risk it selling out like the other one).My Comic(s)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But to satisfy your curiosity here is a synopsis.
- A tragedy, comedy, drama-ity comic-y thing.
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

Oh, many people asked for it, so, I'll do ~ i hope that it'll be good, because I'm not good with explanations.
Which the program that I use?
Gimp 2.8 (you can download it in the site, it's free! http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ )
But you can use Photoshop too, because GIMP looks like with Photoshop, but it's free, more simple and more "light".
I'll explain of a mode that is possible make in Photoshop or GIMP, not much detailed, I wait that you know the basic of the program.
Ah! Have many many patience >//<
The images about what I saying are in the right of the text.
Start with a document of size 100x100 px.
And create a "border" (in other layer) with the size 50x50 so you know that your pixel art is in the size correct.

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

My friend :iconadoptablesdj: and I have decided to create a new species for adoptables :3
Heres is some information about them:
They're kind of kemonomimi who possess magical abilities that vary depending on the breed to which they belong. The use of these skills is evidenced by the symbol floating over their heads and in their hands, which creates a kind of flame when they use their powers. The flame color varies from Naipe to Naipe, however isn't a fire as such because it does not produce heat or burns, is more like the representation of their energy at the moment to use their powers.
-They have the distinctive symbol of their breed in the back of his ears and tail. Also, it can be seen in their eyes.
Back in action with a couple of EventsHello everyone, Sorry for the long long Hiatus, had quite a few things to sort out before today. with the new year and all the late work I had to finish, I'm still behind with some commissions but hopefully with my new daily schedule set up, i will catch up on those as well, so if you are on such a list and been waiting for a long while, please give me just a bit more time, i will catch up on these late work. @__@Back in action with a couple of Events2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I started a daily monster sketch, so hopefully this will help make up for my lack of action for the past months. please feel free to join in on this excercise as well, i care less about the quality about these works, the important thing for me is keep doing one each day, hopefully to do this for a whole year. =] I think it will be a big dedication and accomplishment. =]

Here's the starters....
On a high mountain far from civilization, a long black hair girl kneels in front of a small fire. The firelight illuminates her deep blue and black dress suit attire. Across from her was an older man with long white hair with a matching beard in fur like clothing. The elder stares at the girl intently before speaking.
"We've received a request from a town called Atria. It seems they require a highlander's aid." The girl remains silent as she stares into the flames with her silver eyes listening intently. "It seems this will be a dangerous mission....but I believe you can do it." The elder looks to the side and the girl does

His eyes a cursed unnatural gold, and a sneer so sinister, that grown men would weep and beg at his feet. Captain Daniel Lee was his name, feared as much as he was devilishly handsome. On a midsummer day, the feared captain had set on a mission, a quest if you will, to very simply collect the head of a traitor. Enriek Pond, a man once a part of the Princess's crew - Well, un

I dont believe in mentors, not all mentors are qualified to teach, they can misguide you sometimes. If you have a mentor it can turn you into his clone, i had seen tons of great artists that their technique wasnt good but they were more unique and after having mentor, their style lose uniqueness. Because be honest, we copy what we like, and usually we ask for mentors of people that style will enjoy the most.
For example you go and learn to play guitar with Slash, you will master the guitar at rock, but you if you wanna learn country, Slash wont teach you that, your hands will have the skills but you will have to start country from zero, and country its your style.
Sooner or later the technique of the mentor will consume you. Because errors are the things that

However, I ALSO have a table inside the 1st floor of the Japan Town Mall near the Kinokuniya bookstore.
