A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and ArtWith movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and Art3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend

Hello dear members!
We are finally having our first contest! The theme will be "Group Mascot". We are asking you to design a mascot that will represent what this group is all about! Cute anime girls! Also, if you could think of a cute name for her that would be great! (but dont worry if you cant! )
Here are some of the things we are looking for in a mascot; these are just some ideas, so don't let your design be restricted by us!

Though not really respected here on DA because of a lack of effort. Though some people may think they have put tonnes of effort into a character, others think there's more to be done. But even then, many deviants haven't taken into account that we all started the same. My first ever character was a green Shadow named Reflecto. But it's not too late to change it! Just take a pencil and paper and read on for tips to improve.

So a few weeks back I started a poll where I wanted my watchers to choose pic that i would feature in this journal. It can be anything,, a pic done by you or a commission of your character or a pic you simply like. Here's a few of them. You guys are the backbone of my confidence ever since I joined DA & I'll be always grateful to my watchers for the support they've shown. I know i can't please everyone all the time, but I hope this makes up for it. If you want to be featured all you gotta do is watch & the comment in this journal & i will keep adding the pics at the end of the day... Heres goes...Hope you enjoy.
Feel free to fave this feature & share it so that everyone getds the love & views

"DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST?

Believe it or not there is a difference. I'm not usually a soapbox type guy, I don't like instructing people, and I think I'm a terrible teacher. But hey, it's Friday and I'm in a strange mood. So here goes:
I've noticed that a good number of my fans happen to be aspiring artists themselves. This is for all you guys. I get asked constantly: "Where should I go to school?" "What classes should I take?" "What should I study for anatomy?" "What pencils and paper do you use?" "Should I be working digitally now instead of traditionally?" "How do I fix my poses? Learn composition? Perspective?" "When

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )
A Tribute to Hans Ruedi GigerA Tribute to Hans Ruedi Giger11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.

Adoptables, Writing an Artist's DescriptionA Good DescriptionAdoptables, Writing an Artist's Description3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Concerning adoption, a good description is always needed. It informs the purchaser about everything they need to know about the character and the adoption itself.
Basics of a Good Description:
Use proper grammar
A lot of deviants are *not* native english speakers and all the english they know is what they have been taught in school so try to use proper grammar. Talking and writing are not the same thing, 'your' and 'you're' do not mean the same thing and should *not* be written in the same way. Some mistakes or 'typos' can always happen, but as long as most of your writing is correct, the odd mistake is forgivable.
Unless you're a writer working on a stream of consciousness, periods and commas are not optional. (And remember that the first letter after a period is always capitalized)
No walls of text
Writing every sentence after the other without leaving spaces ever so often is

The Shape of Things to ComeYou want change on DeviantArt. Everyone here has something they would change. We do listen and, yes, we can’t get everything done. Still, as a community, with any change we change together because we are all here together.The Shape of Things to Come7 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
We found major talent to join the DeviantArt team this year to help us assume responsibility for major change and deliver on it. In return, we will be calling on the whole community to exercise its responsibility of continuing to shape DeviantArt into the place where the global undercurrent of creativity feeds the future of popular culture.
DeviantArt is as binary as it is digital in its platform. We serve equally those who produce art as those who need to see art and engage with it. Creating the undercurrent is a function of tools as much as it is a function of community activity. Getting these two to work in unison has always been the secret sauce of DeviantArt – and every recipe for the sauce begins

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
