Celebrating Diversity #27The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to post an article with deviations outside of my area of expertise here on deviantART. Therefore I decided to browse away from Photography, and venture into areas that I know little about!Celebrating Diversity #272 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I strongly encourage you to step out of your zone of comfort and take the time to discover or re-discover other types of art. The world is full of wonder and beauty, we just need to take the time and open our minds to see even more of it - embrace the diversity of it!

Anime, Art, ActivismSorry for the flood of journals!Anime, Art, Activism3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, thank you all for the support about the Comic Con panels, and thank you, dA, for giving me the opportunity to do so!
Speaking of panels, I will be giving another one about how anime and art can be more than just pretty pictures, but also a powerful mechanism of change. I will talk about how I first started doing activist art, finding inspiration, and how that evolved into my life's career. I will also be talking about how you can easily take action with nothing but the will of your imagination.
The panel will be held at Cal Anime Destiny http://www.calanimedestiny.com a small one day (and super cheap) anime convention held at my university When I'm not panelling, you can find me in the Artist Alley (the AA is small, so I'll be easy to find ). The con is this October 13th at MLK Student Union on the University of California Berkeley campus 10 AM7 PM (more info here http://www.calanimedestiny.com/location )

deviantART v999We're working on deviantART v999. So far, it's a lot of prototypes, concepts and color explorations that are waiting for clarity on some technologies coming out of R&D.deviantART v9992 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
A lot of you probably wonder where the hell our mobile apps are. I do. Quick answer: They're trapped under a bigger project. It's worth the wait, but we're far overdue on release. The biggest problem has been the Message Center, whose architecture, look and feel, etc. simply doesn't port over to Mobile & Tablets. For these, we need to streamline the incredibly powerful experience of deviantART's message center, so that it can be consumed on smaller screens without having to click lots of buttons.
Activity Feeds are supposed to be the obvious solution. But at deviantART, people love their Message Centers specifically because they aren't feeds. Each item from your +watch list, or Feedback area comes in as an item. Each item must be removed from the Message Center by you. This is great because it allows us to

How it works?
1. After receiving payment for your commission I'll draw a sketch of it. It will look somehow like this: http://aomori.deviantart.com/art/Commission-sketch-Lizkay-213251547 http://aomori.deviantart.com/art/Dance-on-the-lake-com-sketch-199698925 http://aomori.deviantart.com/art/Commission-sketch-Epiaruna-255823182
2. At this moment you can change anything in the drawing and tell me if I drew you OC correctly, do you like the color theme etc.
3. I won't do a sketch of traditional commissions (there is just not much place for mistakes)
4. When I finish the art for you, there is still a chance to add minor changes or fix some details that were not visible on the sketch, so don't worry (I

The Fundamentals of Traditional (2D) Animation
This course will cover the fundamentals of Traditional Animation (aka Classic Animation or 2D Animation).
This is going to be a basic course going over the basic rules of animation. There is a LOT to learn about creating an animated film, but right now I will be focusing on pure animating and the principles of animation (and there’s enough to learn here as well), because I believe once you learn that, it doesn’t really matter which tool you use to create your animations, they will always turn out great!
Number of Lessons: 13
Total Course Hours: 16-20 Hours (75-90min for each lesson

Quick NoteI was recently asked about how to go about studying anatomy. Keep in mind that anatomy is likeQuick Note1 year 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

Copying to learnI have been asked a few times whether it's ok to copy someone's style of drawing just to practice. I must admit that I've done my share of copying when I was in high school, but I don't think there's anything wrong with it as long as you move on from just imitation to developing your own creative style. The way I see it is that when you're copying, you are trying to understand how the artist is thinking when he/she draws, and through that you learn more about what it is you are drawing and that's when you can start creating your own style. I had mentioned before that back in school, I got to the point where I could pretty much mimic Naoko Takeuchi's style and draw my own original Sailormoon fan art in it, but over time I found that it was lacking because it really wasn't 'me' coming through in the work… which lead me to explore and look into what was to become my current 'style.' Of course it didn't just come to me overnight, and it was informed by more than just Sailormoon – ratheCopying to learn2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mansion de la demenciaPrados nebulosos, entre arboles sombriosMansion de la demencia3 years ago in Personal More Like This
pasean los fantasmas, agonias en sus gritos
miradas en lo oscuro y sangre en las canciones
bienvenido a la mansion del terror y los horrores.
Vampiresco es el mundo, la vision del heredero
ángel de las sombras, egocentrico señor
sumergido en los espejos de la angustia y el pavor
portales de aventura, destino en agujeros.
Las criaturas multiformes no se hacen esperar
la pequeña desquiciada, el gigante primordial,
una niña que aspira entre hojas su ilucion
y un arcaico guerrero de la transformacion.
Hechizera de las furias, alcoholica mujer
de cuerpo singular, erotico placer
mas de un secreto guarda en su pensamiento
poderosa invocadora, vampiresa soñadora.
Hermana del heredero, una neko sonriente
curiosa mirada, cargada de pasion
guerrera de la luz, de espada resplandeciente
canciones de risas en trazos de color.
Sigiloso entre los árboles, cazador de recompenzas
solo buscas la conquista de mas de una doncella
Commission InfoHello all, here is my basic commission infoCommission Info3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Prices are negotiable, so please let me know your range. I'm sure we can work something out. Payments are through PayPal. I cover all PayPal fees, and you will receive your completed commission within one week of payment, guaranteed.
If you commission multiple pieces at a time, I will extend the deadline as I see fit. So if you commission two pieces at once, for example, I will get both to you within two weeks. I often like to work on things in tandem. This clause also holds true if you order another commission while in the waiting period for another.
I judge prices based on how long I think it will take, how comfortable/familiar I am with the subject matter, and the amount of detailing and rendering it will need. Additional characters will cost extra, as will more complicated designs.
I generally complete commissions in the order they are received, but simple pieces may take priority over more complex ones, as they can
