Collection Of Coloring Tutorials (NEW)Update: I wanted to post this again for anyone who didn't get a chance to see it. The people who have made these tutorials have helped me immensely and I'd love to share their knowledge with others.Collection Of Coloring Tutorials (NEW)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was talking to someone here on DA and I was going to give her some coloring tips and send her some tutorials. I decided instead to put it all in one big journal so other people can benefit from it as well.
WARNING! Some Youtube videos may have inappropriate content. I don't remember what all of the videos have in them, so proceed with caution. Especially if you are male since most of the immodesty will be of women.

Contest! Draw Sophie and get a MH Drawing!What is this contest about?:Contest! Draw Sophie and get a MH Drawing!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Draw my doll Sophie
you can draw her chibi, realistic or in your own style, but her face must be always visible and you must draw her joints. She is a doll, I wouldn't like her to look like she wasn't. This means you MUST draw her joints, but you can draw her with any expression, like if she was alive.
You can draw her with the clothes she has in the photos or even design your own clothes for her, so you have total freedom about it.
how many drawings can I do for this contest?:
As many as you want without limit, as long as they are 100% original and finished (full colored). No work in progress, no drawings in striped paper.
Traditional or digital?:
Both are accepted
Please, be original:
Don't steal other people's drawings, don't use bases, and please, don't just copy a photo T_T
You may use a photo as a reference, but don't traze it.
If you do, you will be kicked out from the co

Important Update Regarding sxc.hu Stock and ArtI'm sure many of you are aware of the situation with using stock from the website sxc.hu. I wanted to bring you the final word on the use of their stock in photomanipulations. (Keep in mind that they should never be used to create premade backgrounds.) Our Community Volunteer Aeirmid has shared the latest update from the sxc.hu's version of the "help desk."Important Update Regarding sxc.hu Stock and Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Jade received an email as part of a mass BCC email to the dA users who expressed concern over the situation. Here is a quote from the response:
"1. The rights granted by sxc.hu license are very limited and specific. You may not use sxc.hu images in photo-manipulations or digital collages. Furthermore, you cannot create any derivate works with the use of sxc.hu images. There appears to be a common miscomprehension and some appear to believe that 'if the use is not prohibited then it is permitted' - this is not true. It is clearly stated in the license agreement All rights are reserved unless otherwise gran

And this IS watercolor painting. 100% watercolor. Kthnxbye.
I've been a lot in traditional art society, and just... I spotted this artwork. No, at the first it was a photograph for me. For really long time I wasn't interested to take a look deeper at that common photograph until I got bothered by loads of people to take a peek on it.
That really knocked me out from chair, is not the fact it's 100% painting but it's watercolor. I've seen 100% photo looking a like acrylics, oils and really mixed medium ways of paintings but... watercolor alone? And that's from simple watercolor "squares" palette.
I'm not really fan of photo-realistic paintings, I do love real life paintings with very artistic touch and with it's own original style... but for this one I have lots of "wow" for this artist to master watercolor on insane level of skill by using simple techni

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.

A reference guide on bookbinding typesA reference guide on bookbinding typesA reference guide on bookbinding types1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
When I tell people I'm a bookbinder they often think I make only one type of book; the library kind. That, however, is only one of the many ways an artist can create a book. For me, it's a fun challenge to pick the right binding style to go with the purpose of the book. Whether it is a novel that needs to look really classy or medieval, a sketchbook for a graphic novelist or a paper about connections that lets me show the binding. In this article I'm going to tell you a little bit about all the types of bookbinding that I know. I'm not going into details but, if possible, I will link to images and tutorials that do.
If you're here for inspiration: this guide is pretty long. I recommend scrolling through the images first!
To make a start...
The different ways of binding books can be broken down into two general groups: adhesive bindings and non-adhesive bindings. Adhesive b

Here's some tips that may not get you a consistent spot on the front page right away, but that will definitely help getting some watchers and friends, whether you already have some, or not.
First, let me make clear that this is only about 'good' attention – if you just want, say, a certain pageview count, there are probably better ways. This article is for those who would like some people to take them serious as an artist and to actively watch them.
Also note that you needn't follow all of the tips below, but it's recommendable to follow at least 3 of them. Just one or two will not usually get you very far.
So here we go! :iconeagerpee:
Submit art regularly.
Try to find a balance between quality and quantity. Personally I think it's best to submit one or a couple of dev

Outlaw at the Bleeding Edge
of Independent Cinema
Movies featuring the latest in high tech digital effects, eye-popping CGI environments and ear-splitting surround sound, are often described as “pushing the envelope.” But they’re mega-million-dollar productions that are delivered back to the studios by the filmmakers precisely as pre-ordered. Rarely is there danger of disaster, so what envelope has been pushed?
“Envelope-shredder” might be a better designation for Brian Taylor...
Who, usually in collaboration with partner-in-mayhem Mark Neveldine, has given the world such films as Crank, Crank: High Voltage, Gamer, Pathology, and recently Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.
