There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recent

I love creepy psychological shit, and this is some of the best I've ever seen. Way, way better than any of the movies. So, have an art feature!Hannibal Feature1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

Picasso seeing a seven as an upside down nose?
Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

Smoothing, Sanding, Buffing Polymer ClaySmoothing, Sanding, and Buffing polymer clay is definately something that you don't hear a lot about in the younger polymer clay community, but it certainly does make your pieces look a lot better in the long run. If you smooth, sand, and buff your clay AND add a layer of varnish - watch out, your pieces will look as bright, beautiful and glossy as a piece of delicious candy.Smoothing, Sanding, Buffing Polymer Clay7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Have you ever noticed that translucent clay really isn't THAT translucent? Well, if you smooth, sand, and buff it - you'll be seeing differently! It really DOES get see-through!
Give these tips a try, and although I can't guarantee that you will get it right the first time, practice makes perfect, and sometimes new techniques take a little getting used to before you find a way that works the best for you.
Smoothing your clay is what you do to your clay before you bake it. Running your fingers along the surface and smoothing out bumps and impurities can work wonders on a piece and give it a ve

Welcome to the first issue of Rising-Artists' Interview series! Today, we have an interview with the very talented inma, a mangaka and illustrator from Spain with four Daily Deviations and over 50,000 watchers. Join us to gain a bit of insight and inspiration from inma's lovely works!
Tell us a bit about your art and yourself as an artist. How long have you been doing art? What kind of art do you do?
I've been drawing ever since I learned how to pick up a pen. My sister liked to draw, so I imitated her. I draw Japanese style only (I'm not very versatile *laughs*).
Your profile states that you are a Freelance mangaka and illustrator. What kind of work does that entail?

Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves TutorialHello again!Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the tutorial for the sleeves of her dress. It is debatable whether or not her sleeves are attached to her top or not. I personally made them separate because It would be even more constricting than it already is XD. I would have liked to made the top of my sleeves a little bigger and I may redo them- but that's for something else. :3
In my first initial post about Ahri's top I posted a picture of the patterns I made, the stencil on the left is the one I made for the sleeve. I know it looks big, but it should! You want to leave enough room at the top and the bottom of the sleeve so it will flair out.
--- As always, pics coordinating with numbers! <3 ---
What you will need:
* Red fabric (I used satin)
* Red thread
* A strip of your white fabric
* Your fabric paints
* Paint brushes and some water/ a paper towel or two
* Optional; Wire (used to shape the top of the sleeves)
First you will make your pattern, measure the top of your arm and stretch it out so that you
Ahri Cosplay - Leggings/shoes tutorialHey there!Ahri Cosplay - Leggings/shoes tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It's getting pretty close to the end of my Ahri cosplay tutorials! This one will be able her shoes and her stockings.
What you will need:
*The same fabric used for your skirt and top. As well as some black fabric.
* Red Ribbon
*You can sew them on or hot glue them on. So either a needle and some thread or you will need your hot glue and gun.
*White paint preferably fabric paint.
This website is great for seeing the designs that her ribbons are in if you are wanting to be accurate. -----> http://lol.zones.gamebase.com.tw/skin_view/ahri?mode#skin
I made mine out of the same material as the rest of the skirt. but an easier way if you wish is to just boy some nice socks and attach the ribbon around accordingly and a collar around the top. The way I did it was a bit more complicated. I measured my leg in 3 parts; the top where I wanted them to sit, the middle and the bottom around my ankle. (1) I then
The 50 Foot / 50 Hand Challenge! CLOSED!THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED! But feel free to do it just for fun/improvement!The 50 Foot / 50 Hand Challenge! CLOSED!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This was a drawing challenge from :iconSenshiStock: and :iconmostlyguystock:!
Hands and feet are pretty hard to draw. Lots of artists struggle with them! Even when other things come naturally, hands and feet can still be quite a problem. The best way to get better at drawing hands and feet is to study them!
The Challenge: Sketch or draw 50 feet AND 50 hands from reference photos or life.
Deadline: The deadline has passed for this challenge, but you can still participate and make yourself a better artist!
You can post them as one giant post, in groups, one at a time, however you want! But please make a FOLDER in your gallery and put them all in there then send me a link to the folder. (If you do one submission with ALL of them at once, then you don't need the folder.)
HOW TO QUALIFY: In order to make this a little easier for myself, please number yo

Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim

Ahri cosplay- Skirt TutorialHi again guys!Ahri cosplay- Skirt Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here is the tutorial for the skirt. I started similalarily to how I did with the top- But first! Let's talk supplies.
You are gonna need:
*White fabric (I used some satin)
*Fabric paint- I use Jacquard brand - Gold an a red. (5)
*Paint brushes of all sizes- primarily smaller and thinner ones.
*White thread of course
----I will correspond the bottom pictures with the points below----
You can start by taking your measurements- using the pattern method from the shirt create a pattern. Make sure to make the pattern about 2 inches larger than you are to allow enough space for sewing/breathe room. It is also important that you make sure to make the top layer of the skirt larger at the bottom so that it sticks out in the nice points like she does in game
I made my skirt in 2 different pieces. The top half and the bottom half.
