The Textures Feature Vol. IHi everyone!The Textures Feature Vol. I2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Welcome to my first separate textures feature which I wouldn't be doing, if not the Stash Uploader had crashed on my latest Awesome Art Journal. I happen to find a lot of art that I like, but featuring lots of works seems to be too much for the Journal Writer, so eventually it just tears apart the format, doesn't display the thumbnails correctly, etc. But looking at it the positive way, it gives me more room to introduce you to texture artists that I have discovered recently or have even been watching for a while.
First off, there's NinjaRabbit-Stock who I'd like to motivate to make more textures, because she hasn't been doing it for very long, but already has made such beautiful ones. Like these:
Then there's of course Sirius-sdz , who you probably all know and watch anyway, but I can't make a textures feature without including his stunning work:

Want to check if your work is stolen or just promote your work?
Over the past month or so I have been able to find a fair bit of facebook art communities. Many works stolen and defaced but also some groups that add links to artists. In either case, whether you want to check if your work has been stolen or maybe you want to promote your work on these sites I have a fairly large list of some of the larger art communities on fb that I thought I would share with you. I cannot possibly contact all the artists I have seen with stolen work so I urge you to check for yourselves.

PE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style Basic notions for drawing heads and facesPE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome back everyone! Today I'm going to teach you the basics of drawing a face. Before I start, I want to clarify that this is the way I do it, but there are a thousand other methods that you can follow, make sure you understand the concepts and apply them the best you can, you don't have to stictly do it like I do, develop your own way and keep on learning!
Many artists suggest using circles to start sketching the head and the body but... I don't use them. I've never used them. I tried using them in the past and it only resulted in messed up lines and strange-looking faces and heads. So I dropped the circles. If you feel comfortable using them, I bow to you and I encourage you to keep using them, but I'm afraid you won't see any circles in my tutorial

Tips: how to enjoy painting long hoursI am not a natural painter. I am a natural sequential artist who is used to doing large amount of images to tell a story.Tips: how to enjoy painting long hours2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to paint the highly detailed paintings I adore looking at, but I tend to want to give up half way before the paintings get anywhere I would say "Wow" to.
I hit a wall for a while, my wall is: I just can't keep myself interested enough to make myself stay on the same piece for a long time!
I couldn't bring myself to spend on a painting that is my own for over 20-30 hours... while others can spend up to 80-100 hours on solid hours. I have no problem doing it for commercial work, or for clients, because the nature of those work hours are short, but when it comes to my own work, I need a break through on my hours of devotion.
Just when I was about to settle on: "Is this a personality trait I can't change? Is this something I have to be born with?"
While I believe that if I have the urge to do it, it's within me. If I adore it, there is a quality in me to d
Three Years of Fine Fractal Frolicking It gives me Great Pleasure to address, in my humble opinion, the finest collection of Fractal Artist on the internet! When I first Joined DA I had this perception that my skills with Gimp would be enough to carry me through on this great collaboration of artist from many disciplines and skill levels. Boy was I wrong! As a matter of fact had I not discovered the Spellbinding Art of Mr. HalTenny I probably would have been laughed right of the site long ago! I am so fortunate to have discovered Mandelbulb 3D through watching HalTenny's art. I downloaded the program and started using it right away and created my first fractal in Jan. 2011. I was instantly hooked! Addicted really! Now three later I still use the same program only with slightly better results. Then on Mar 25, 2011, I founded Xtreme Fractals! I had not clue how to run a group and struggled desperately to make it grow.Three Years of Fine Fractal Frolicking1 year ago in Personal More Like This
