The importance of the Daily RoutineChaos is sometimes presented to us as a good thing, the youthful characters in movies and video games that we all want to be. To be more spontaneous, not to be strangled by our dull duties.The importance of the Daily Routine9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Batman the Dark Knight stars a villain who is all about being a disorganized mess, seemingly relying on random luck and improvising rather than getting a plan going. In the end he falls, but I still don't think that the character was all that chaotic to begin with. Even the Joker planned his moves. His actions were surprising, but not utterly chaotic as we might be led to think.
On the other hand an orderly routine is shown as being the sign of the boring person, indulging in whatever little tasks their minuscule world can offer. A characteristic approach in the movies (comics, video games and other mediums) will have an accountant live an orderly and ordinary life, full of routines and little personal rituals while the Big and Brave Hero who goes out at night to stop criminals will have a seemingly

Art studiesI've been doing a lot of study material recently in order to get better and hopefully more content with my artwork. (No, these weren't posted publicly. I'm shy to do so XD)Art studies6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In order to learn more, I'm looking for simple studies or exercises that can be done in a day or so, which will improve my art. I've been doing a lot of gesture drawings and still life and photo study's already. But I'm looking for more methods that will help me tackle the hard topics of lighting (painting), anatomy, and compositions --area's in which I feel I'm severely lacking-- and will help me get some insight.
I make a list of all exercises here (which will be updated);
- Gesture drawings [Draw human poses from photo reference]
- Still life study's [Draw a still life from reference]
Feel free to add things to this list.
Furthermore I'm looking for artists that want to study with me. Study-mates, yes. Because unfortunately I don't have the luxury of having many artistic friends irl that can h

PE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style Basic notions for drawing heads and facesPE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome back everyone! Today I'm going to teach you the basics of drawing a face. Before I start, I want to clarify that this is the way I do it, but there are a thousand other methods that you can follow, make sure you understand the concepts and apply them the best you can, you don't have to stictly do it like I do, develop your own way and keep on learning!
Many artists suggest using circles to start sketching the head and the body but... I don't use them. I've never used them. I tried using them in the past and it only resulted in messed up lines and strange-looking faces and heads. So I dropped the circles. If you feel comfortable using them, I bow to you and I encourage you to keep using them, but I'm afraid you won't see any circles in my tutorial

For long time deviantart was the place where I was able to hide my sorrow. But current events are blowing my mind, and I can not stop thinking about.
For ones who watch me for a long time it is no secret that I'm Ukrainian. For ones, who was watching BBC or Euronews these days it is not a secret that a tragedy have happened in Ukraine.
Here I just want to post some works by Ukrainian artist dedicated to the victims of that regime and our liberation struggle. Unfortunately I don't have all the portraits. I`m proud of my people and I'm out of despair to see what have happened. I think I had to do this. This journal is my silent scream.

"The Eagle, Son of No One"
January, 11 1165
Exactly 848 years ago a promising child was born in Masyaf.
Since his childhood his fate had been written, by loosing his father he had to grow fast, rely solely on his skills and Al Mualim's lessons. As you all now, he was betrayed by the man he always considered like a second father. But the never surrended, his temper and his stubborness brought him to becoming Grand Master of the Assassin's Order.
We want to remember him with his words:
"When I was very young, I was foolish enough to believe that our Creed would bring an end to all these conflicts. If only I had possessed the humility to say to myself, I have seen enough for one life, I've done my part. Then again, there is no greater glory than

Referencing and Tracing
Tracing and referencing are NOT the same thing.
Here's the distinction most experienced artists would make on the two subjects.Referencing = Having some pictures nearby to show you how things are done. They're not under your drawing, they're all around so you can see and remind yourself of the proper way to draw something. You're using them as tools to draw your own thing. References are there to keep you on track, but you're doing your own work.Tracing = You've taken a picture (or more. You can trace from several pictures on one piece) and put it underneath your o
