My favorite ART suppliesI get asked a lot what pens and pencils I use. So I thought I'd post an updated list of my favorites. I'm a big fan of trying new things, I'm always buying lots of different pens to try out and in my search for the best tools to use for creating comics Ive found these to work the best for my needs.My favorite ART supplies3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My number one question that others ask me is "What do you ink with?"
I use Kuretake brush pens. Here's a link to a sable hair brush pen that I love, it's the closest thing to a real brush I've used. It is pricey though. http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-40-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Sable-Hair-Refill/pd/3958
The less expensive version is the synthetic hair, http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-13-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Red-Body/pd/2661 this brush pen is similar to a Pentel brush pen. http://www.jetpens.com/Pentel-Pocket-Brush-Pen-for-Calligraphy/pd/1793
The cool thing about these Kuretake brush pens is the refill cartridges have nice ink in them that I use, but if you find you don't like the
PE: How to Make Pixel CloudsHow to Make Pixel CloudsPE: How to Make Pixel Clouds9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to make pixel clouds. I have two different types of clouds I use depending on the piece; semi-realistic, and cartoon style. I will be showing you both today!
Let us start!
The semi realistic style can be done two ways, depending on if you are limiting colors or not.
First, I'm going to show you the way for if you do not care how many colors you use.
First you will pull out your pencil brush, as you would normally do when making pixel art, and set the color to white. After that, set the opacity to around 10%-20%.
Randomly brush side to side with the pencil, and then overlap some lines randomly as well.
Keep doing that until the cloud if about as big as you need it; it should look something like this.c:
Tutorials and techniques 2It's time to refresh the tutorial journal! Added some new ones and removed those which, after some time, I found a bit misleading.Tutorials and techniques 22 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!

Diversity of Women's BodiesDiversity of Women's Bodies1 year ago in Personal More Like This
From Howard Schatz's 2002 book, Athlete
Why it's embarrassing for comic book illustrators to only look to Sports Illustrated for references for female characters.
There is far more body diversity in the athletic world and characters should reflect that. Wonder Woman should be BUFF...and uh..that's all the female characters in comics I really know or care about....*cough*
I want to find the male version (I know there is one) of this because the message is equally true. While male characters tend to have more body variety; there still is that default buff man Conan model. My personal disgruntlement is when it shows up on batman who is suppose to be dexterous and not as buff as Superman.

AN INTERVIEW WITH A.... PUBLISHER!Hello everyone!AN INTERVIEW WITH A.... PUBLISHER!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
:iconillusionsfire76:illusionsfire76 here! I know that we're long overdue for an Interview. My apologies! Hopefully, this one makes up for it I recently had the pleasure of interviewing :iconfanaticalpublishing:FanaticalPublishing and I have to say that it was a rather enlightening learning experience. READ ON!!!
Q: So tell us about you and how you got into publishing.
A: Well, I’m an American-Israeli. I live about 8 kilometers from Gaza, which can be pretty exciting. All my friends agree that I am a very weird person, but they also agree that that’s not a bad thing. I got into publishing basically because I was really, really bored. Y’see, I was volunteering to join the IDF, and it took almost three years. I couldn’t get a job or anything while I was doing this, ‘cause I didn’t know when I’d get called up, so for years, literally, I had nothing to do but watch TV and surf the internet.

Ramblings about 'internet fame'A lot of stuff has happened lately in life lately, and is has made me think about things, and about my perspective on it. One of those things, is the internet.Ramblings about 'internet fame'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you know, I'm a huge nerd. While as kid, I didn't had a computer at home, and I hated those damn machines because I wasn't able to work with them at all (so much fail T__T), I soon caught up when I got my first computer at age 14. And while most of my family expected me to end up as a hopeless internet addict, I soon started to learn myself how to program. The rest is history. With my 26th birthday, I also celebrated being a webprogrammer for 10 years already. Oh yeah, I'm getting old for sure.
The recent chain of events have caused me to think about the internet and it's role in life, however. When I first started out with art, I was only a little girl. Me, and both of my younger sisters, were all very creative. And we spend almost all of our time drawing at the kitchen table, while discussing about the characters we

I am so grateful to every person that even views my works and of course i am even happier if they appreciate them.
I know that i am really inactive in things like answering comments, notes and taking the time to appreciate the work of others.
But please don't think i am ungrateful for all of that, because that's really not the case.
On the contrary, your compliments really encourage me and make me smile !
I am kind of trying to figure out what i want to do with my life after i finished school and of course i have to get good marks to
leave as many options open as possible. I hope you do understand that.
I am still taking photos ( which you probably know ), since it's a important time for me to just take my dog and
go for a long walk searching for pretty flowers or ladybugs or just sit in my room for hours trying to take pretty photos.

suggesting DD's (daily deviations)Edit on Sept 3, 2013: I changed this article a bit after I had a friendly chat with some of the (former) volunteers and senior members of the website. I hope the details help you in making even better submissionssuggesting DD's (daily deviations)1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Everybody on DeviantArt seems to know about the Daily Deviations, or DD's. The handful of artworks that makes it to the frontpage every day. The artworks that are shown at the bottom of the site all day long, and get loads of exposure. I guess they're the wet dream for many people on DA.
DD's are usually a reason for discussion. I can't even begin to count the topics on the forums that are about why some deviations are chosen over others, and how the quality of those deviations keep declining year after year. Not many people know, however, that's it's not entirely up to the staff which works are picked. And that we can have our own vote on this.
So I can have an influence
