Being Real with PoesdaughterThere's nothing better than a good story...unless it's a good story that also happens to be true. And that's why we have an entire genre known as "creative non-fiction." It doesn't get a lot of press on dA, but essayists like David Sedaris and authors like Mary Roach and Jon Ronson routinely make the bestseller list, and rightly so. Creative non-fiction isn't limited to essays and memoirs.Being Real with Poesdaughter1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Which doesn't say what creative non-fiction is. Thankfully, better minds are on hand to answer that question.
While PoesDaughter is new to dA, she's no stranger to creative writing—her master's thesis is a series of creative non-fiction essays.
What is "creative non-fiction"?
Oh, geez. This very question always sparked interesting "discussions" in my creative writing classes in college, and I don't think anybody had like definitions! I mean, this is something that's been up for debate for...

Celebrating 1 year with the girlfriend on the 22nd hehe, Taking her to Lego Land but she does not know that yet so shhhhhuuushhhhh (she does not use DA).
I am loving the comments and reception from the latest sets, Thanks all , I still have just short of 400 images to sort and post, though this time they are from larger single sets instead of the smaller 10-15 image ones I have been putting up over the last week, as such expect a lot of similar images, some packs etc, should also get some more Multi expression images out of it all, something people have been very enthusiastic about .

Week 2 helping students at CDA. I know I sound like a broken record telling students to slow down.
But we ( Kevin, Dan, and Esmerelda ) can't stress that enough. Really think out the marks that you put down.
You'll get to spend more time drawing and not fixing. When I sit down to help students, I ask them simple questions
and they always answer correctly. Example: Me: What view is the head in? Student: Side view. Slightly tilted
away. Me: Correct. So let's draw the base head. ( we go through the steps involved in drawing this view )
Me: Now what do we do next? Student: Draw the carpet shape to envelope the torso. Me: Right ( We go through
the steps ) Main point being that the student knows this stuff. Just needs to slow down.
Better slow and correct than fast and sloppy.
When you go to drawing workshops. It's better to draw slower in the beginning. Maybe
Genuine Literature Feature.Genuine Literature Feature.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"Quality is not an act, it is a habit."
For a very long time , i had this thing (liability,obligation,viewpoint) lingering in my mind and soul to feature which art...
Yes its time for LITERATURE FEATURE , its something you don't see done by nowadays major groups , the result is Literature is becoming endangered specie.
Nowadays admins , workers and high level artist believe its a relic of past (of foregone time)
Some even say that Literature is not ART, But i believe all our digital , Traditional , fanart ,Photomanipulation or even our Hollywood etc movies are somehow inspired from books , novels , light novels, for example Harry potter , Lord of the rings, Narnia etc.
Alexander the great(from history books) , Nobunaga The fool (anime made from Japan history with bits of fictional touches)
Literature was(past) the ART that brought all this creativity , this imaginative ,versatile thinking to our world that we painted , we colored , we created digital arts as in the back of

Something important to sayHello dearSomething important to say1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Today when checking my notifications on deviantart I found the following comment: (I think this kind of outrageous comments)
How to get allot of attention in Deviant Art:
2#-have a sexy body
3#-take pictures of yourself nude
4#-take picture 2 girls kissing each other
5#- act cute in the comment section
6#-Have allot of tattoos
this is my answer:
Learn to see things from another perspective:
1#- I'm not bisexual
2#-the body is art
3#-I take nude photos for where you see vulgarity I see art
4#-two girls kissing is the sexiest out there. hey what's wrong with that? There are sexual tendencies and they respect them.
5#I'm friendly with everyone because I am an educated woman
6#-I do not care what you think about my tattoos, I do it to capture memories in my skin that you like best
My work art is about free speech and my images are not all naked, I am part of a community of girls and I promote the photos, we are models with different stereotypes of beauty, sorry i
Simple Life Drawing tipHey all,Simple Life Drawing tip1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Through helping students at CDA, one thing that I see a lot of is the tendency to just draw when the model poses.
To be honest you will get less done drawing this way. It's also important to learn how to sharpen your pencil properly.
When the model poses, take about 30 seconds and observe. If you've been practicing your mental manikin then this will
be easier. Starting with what is the model doing? Which way is the head oriented? Which shoulders is higher? Where
is the pinch and stretch side? Etc...
Doing this gives you a battle plan, even before you make a mark on your drawing pad. You'll be surprised at how much more
you edit your marks when you start putting down lines. Remember that even before you get likeness, lighting, form, etc.
your base lay in should be clear. Meaning that anyone who looks at it should be able to tell what's going on.
There will be examples of this soon and also in the BAD drawing notes book

Quick NoteI was recently asked about how to go about studying anatomy. Keep in mind that anatomy is likeQuick Note2 years ago in Personal More Like This
icing on a cake. The underlying shape and form must be defined before you can start throwing
it in there. lol I'll be going over this base anatomy in the cliff notes. That being said, the best way
to study anatomy ( I think ) is to study function. If you understand interlocking forms, guess what?
You know how to draw, arms, legs and the torso. If you understand stacking forms you now have the tools
to draw intricate areas like the armpit, hips, arms reaching side view etc.
There's a few things I think about when I incorporate anatomy.
1.) Will it help flow?
2.) Will it reinforce my underlying form?
3.) Do I even need to show it in this image?
4.) What is the figure doing?
5.) Where is the weight?
the list goes on.
The simplest way to think of anatomy is this. If you take two pencils and position them in

Starting a Story From Fresh pt.1I promised, a while ago, that I would write a journal that addressed the writingStarting a Story From Fresh pt.110 months ago in Personal More Like This
and creative process as much as anything else - how I start, and even why.
What makes a memorable character?
What are the themes?
How much do you care about popularity - ie. is it a project you're doing for
yourself, or because you hope it will generate a huge, mainstream audience?
What age-range is it?
And as mentioned earlier - why is it important you do it?
But let's start with...
Where do you get you ideas?
Great ideas do not come fully-formed out of the ether. Even the ideas I've
had that were born of dreams, and dragged screaming from my subconscious
before I forgot them, were an accumulation of living experiences. In Metawhal
Alpha the setting is somewhere I lived as a boy. I know every inch of the
Clock Warehouse, the noises and smells of the place, as well as the referenced
folklore. The Pub in Death and the Myrmidon was indeed a local, and it does
have a well covered in glass that y
