PE: Traditional ShadingTraditional ShadingPE: Traditional Shading1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello. This is iDJPanda on the topic of shading!
When I usually start into the shading process of something, I always struggle to see which kind of technique I can use to give the piece of art the type of wow that I want. But just like anything, there are MANY ways to do it! This can help you use different shading techniques for different textures. I'm gonna give you a few different ways you can shade (Try to shake it up! ). If you have any other ways you shade, please feel free to tell me!
One of my favorite, in this technique of shading, you go against what all elementary teachers told you. You scribble! When you shade like this, you'll come out with something that looks like this.
Using circular motions, you generate different shades. Spending more time, swirling makes the certain areas you want darker, and the less you swirl makes the other areas lighter.

Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Anime and manga: a booming industry in many parts of the the world. The beautiful and unique style of art and its exquisite stories enticed many readers and captured many young artist's hearts. This is how I started drawing; my love for manga and anime led me to a love of drawing. But like any abilities, good skills do not come overnight; and they don't come no matter how long you sit and wait for them.
I've hit a roadblock in my advancement so I decided to ask my favorite manga artists their own personal experience. It turned out, many of them had difficulties that I'm currently countering. Their advices are most helpful, and I hope you find them helpful too.
To those who never picked up a pencil to draw outside of manatory art classes in school: Read and see the process and other aspects of becoming a good artist. Maybe they can spark a drawing interest in you.
To those who are casual doodlers: These tips may turn you from casual to hard-c

How to leave a comment.I can't even believe I have to write a tutorial for you, really?How to leave a comment.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This does really not include everyone, but some people really need to learn this. And I'm sure I am not the only one who thinks this way.
1. Leaving a comment saying a 1 word adjective, like: cute, nice, good, etc etc.
does not make the artist happy or proud of their work, at least I don't.
What are you even supposed to reply to that? (I never reply to that anyway.)
It's honestly just annoying to me.
At least tell me WHAT is cute. WHAT looks nice and WHAT you think is good.
Also, using proper grammar is also not bad. I understand if english is not your native language, heck, I'm swedish, and I do typos and grammar fails and all that, I won't judge you or anything, but I find it quite annoying when people write like this:
u drw so gd plz teech my hw to woof.
And I'm sitting there like: KILL IT BEFORE IT LAYS EGGS
Jokes aside, take some time to think about what you want to write, else just fav and don't com

Well, recently I have had no choice but to unwatch a successful artist, she has awesome work, but recently I have become a bit worried about her work, for it has become some what unclean in its content . It actually sort of hurts to have to remove an artist I love supporting from my list, but I am strictly against negative material (material that could harm of negatively redirect young ones minds).
She is entering a contest soon, if she sees this, I hope you win!
Well though I didn't want to unwatch her, I had to

Design me a characterI was thinking about that my account is some neglected. Last time only few people visits my profile so I decided to make a contest. Personally I don't like taking a part in contests, because there are always people who can do it better and... I never win. It's obvious that digital gives you better effects and more possibilities (not always!!) and I have not skill in it. Ok I will not bore there more. I just want that all people have equal chanses. Rules: You have to design a character for me. It can be wolf, dragon, cat or any animal (but not people or horses). In a few days i will put there palette of my favourite colors. I like bright and pastel colors. I like too when there are black elements (but I often make them white).Design me a character2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My favourite colors: azure, white, light green, lavender, color of strawberries. IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU CAN DRAW OR NOT. I will look ony on design. I will not look on style of your work. To take part in contest write under this journal. Deadline: 14.08.2013 All
