Helpful Tip of the Day 03Noticing mistakes:Helpful Tip of the Day 031 year ago in Personal More Like This
>> Zoom in and out.
When you paint detail in one section too long, you loose sight of the entire drawing.
Zoom out and walk away from your desk, take a look at the drawing from afar or walk away and come back.
This way your brain will notice mistakes.
>> Flip the image.
When flipping the image, this allows your mind to view the drawing differently, any mistakes will stand out like a sore thumb.
The eyes might not be level etc.
Its a great trick,
If you are drawing traditionally, hold the paper up to a window and stare at the blank side.
>> Blocking down form zoomed out.
This is a more advanced thing to do that took me several years to get used to. I paint zoomed out to shape the form and colour placement, ( which I also fix halfway through with curves)
Then once you are happy with the form, zoom in and add details, even then I only zoom in about 30-40%
Its all about preferences/ eye sight and size of canvas.

LOL Talking to StrangersSo.. I'm out of town visiting my mother. I arrived here yesterday- I also need to get some pots and stuff for my balcony.LOL Talking to Strangers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My mother went to the bank for 30 minutes, and I'm home alone here with my handsome dog. ( WHich has no relation anything. I feel it's important that I always call him good-looking :3 ).
So the phone rings- I know I don't live here, but I answer it to take a message.
Stranger:" Hey! How are you doing?"
No word of a LIE- this man sounds exactly like my brother. EXACTLY. Hence, I assume it's my brother.
Me: " Oh hey. I'm ok, just stopping by to visit and pick up a few things."
Stranger: " Oh? Like what?"
Me: " Well I want to go to that terrible Walmart and see if I can find cheap plastic chairs for my balcony. I also want to see if I can pick up some gardening stuff" (psst..Walmart freaks me out. Just sayin' )
Stranger: " What kind of gardening stuff?"
Me: " You know- flower boxes and soil. It's a lot cheaper to buy it here than near me."
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 Rant1 year 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
PE: Funding Your ProjectFunding Your ProjectPE: Funding Your Project1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Have a project in mind, but not sure about where you’ll be able to gather the funds? Funding is often the most difficult aspect of running a project, but with the correct planning, organization, and fundraising, you can make any project a success!
Not every deviant has the financial capacity to assist your project, but every deviant can contribute by helping you promote your project. After all, even if these certain individuals cannot be able to donate, they may be able to find you the people who can. In your project announcement journals, make sure to emphasize that anyone can help by:
Adding the journal to their favorites to bump it up to the Journal PortalWriting a journal or a poll promoting the projectEncouraging their friends to help out and spread the word
Another thing to keep in mind is how you plan on collecting donations. Does your project require devi
Cats are not Trash. /edit 2Thor had another visit with the vet today, and got some shots. I had to take him in again because he was wheezing really badly, so I was concerned. The doctor said it'll go away over time and he told me not to be too concerned unless Thor starts to shake or passes out. The doctor also noticed today that Thor's paws have gotten bigger, which he think means that Thor might have a cuts on his feet from being in the trash that got infected.Cats are not Trash. /edit 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
The good news is that Thor has been gaining weight, and the vet was able to give him his first booster. Thor's stool sample test also came back and he has tapeworms. Then a new flea treatment. So, I had to buy medicine for him which cost a whopping $103.00. Then his booster was $73.00. After all the taxes, Thor's vet visit today cost me $200.00.
We also scheduled a date for Thor's castration, the doctor said that he'll be old enough and it's better to get the surgery done while he is young since he will heal better. So, on November 27th, Thor will have
PE: Silk Screen Printing BasicsToday I will discuss some basic information about Silk Screen printing and hopefully draw more interest to this wonderful and fun art form. Silk Screen Printing is used in a variety of professional fields these days and produces beautifully vibrant images that often appear digital in nature due to their vibrance. Silk Screen printing is also often used to print designs and logos onto T-shirts or other apparel - you probably own something that was silk screen printed!PE: Silk Screen Printing Basics1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Let's go ahead and dive right in, shall we?
Generally a digital image is made that is printed as a transparency which is then used to get the image on the screen with some help using emulsion. The 'exposure unit' then burns away the unnecessary emulsion leaving behind a clean area in the mesh with the identical shape as the desired image.
After printing and cleaning the screen, screens are held up to the light to make sure no small holes are present in areas that are not
General Info and F.A.Q.First of all, thanks for 13k watchers, I have so many pics of Annie Mei to draw for you guys now :icongtthplz:General Info and F.A.Q.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think it's about time I make one of these now. I've been getting a lot of notes and comments and I'm starting to see some patterns in them that make my responses redundant and reptitive. Since I can't answer everything anymore, I'll put up as much info as I can here for those who truly want to know certain bits of info about me. I'll update this as new info and repeated questions come up. Eventually this will be put up on my front page and elsewhere.
**As for right now, fill up this journal's comments with questions to help me put together a F.A.Q. If it's not entirely related to my work or deviantart, I'll probably ignore them. Think about what you would like to know. For example, if I get a lot of questions about "How do I do bokeh" or "How do you make clouds", I'll know that that's something I
