Anatomy FAQA lot of people have been noting me things about anatomy, like how I learned, can I help, and so on and so forth. Now I am happy to answer any and all questions you have regarding the matter but here are some questions that pop up quite frequently.Anatomy FAQ2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Q: How did you learn anatomy?
A Ahah, it was a very long and arduous journey. Once upon a time I belonged to an oekaki group (I was 10), and in that group I submitted a picture of a dog (I think) and someone told me my anatomy sucked face (they were right). Now at the time, said someone was a pretty good artist in comparison. So when they said my anatomy sucked, I took it to heart. Instead of letting their rude comment get to me, I decided I'd kick their ass and become 10,000 times better than they were at this "anatomy". Moral of the story... I AM BETTER NOW *EVIL LAUGHTER*.
But yes, that's what got me started... as for how I learned... I drew my dogs and my cat a lot back when I was 11ish. Then when I started on humans I woul

Like always, thank you very much for the support you've given me!! Whether they were favs, comments, llamas, notes, and so on, I very much appreciate all of them!!!
Sadly, I have a really limited free time and aren't able to reply to everyone-- So now, I'm putting up this journal to reply to frequently asked questions to help it out a bit!! I'll try my best to reply to everything as long as they aren't inappropriate or rude!! I'll put the relevant ones in the journal itself.
I'll be waiting! (I'll add a few common ones myself).
1.- What program and tablet do you use to draw?
-I use SAI paint tools and an Wacom Intuos 4 medium size Bamboo Fun (my intuos died ;_.
2.- What is the common size of your canvas?
- The standard size I use is A3 preset 350 dpi, then I go modifying it as I draw.
3.- Have you ever taken classes of art? Are you studying art right now?
- Nope. Everything I know about was pretty much self taugh
Favorite Journal Entries that you may have missedHiya Ryceballs. You know, other than drawings and putting up polls about showers, there's one other thing that I love doing on Deviantart, and that is writing journals! I love writing stuff, sharing my thoughts, sharing stories, ranting about stuff, making fun of stuff, doing top 10s. And I have been told that people likes reading it, that definately puts a smile on my beautiful face. But but but but butt I do know that some of you are new to my Deviantart! And maybe some of you just missed some journals, in total I have over 400 journal entries so far so I wouldn't blame ya for missing them! SOOO I have decided to pick some journals of mine that I like and share it with you guys once again. This may be nostalgic for those who followed me since day 1, and something refreshing for those who has never read them before. I also do apologize for how bad the templates layouts for some of these are, some of these makes your eyes hurt after reading.. And I also apologize for how immature theseFavorite Journal Entries that you may have missed2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Contest Announcement~I am officially announcing my first contest, i have planned this for a month and finally i can officially announce itContest Announcement~2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how.
here are images of them for inspiration
Stolen Adoptables - GuideI've been thinking about it for a while and decided... we need som adoptable education! So many people don't understand how adoptable works or how to keep an eye out for stolen ones. So here's a little guide. Please feel free to tell me if there is something I should add! Also, if you're an adopt artist I encourage you to take the message below and put it up in your own journal for others to see!Stolen Adoptables - Guide2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Be cautious and don't buy stolen adopts!
Reverse image search every single adopt you're interested in before you decide to buy them (unless the artist is well established and you know its their own stuff for sure). Use things like googles image search (just paste the image url to the adopts in the search field and then click search by image), or sites like http://tineye.com/. These are not fail proof ways, but I have found several stolen adoptables by doing this.
When to be cautious:
When the adopts are of quite nice quality but sold super cheaply (like 1-20 points).

Sorry for late response, I have gotten caught up in life esp since I'm moving into the dorm in a week!
Results will be posted in a week ^Q^ Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who participated! Hope you all had fun (: Due to the limited entries however, I unfortunately will not be giving out pixels as bonus prizes
Hello everyone!! UvU I've always enjoyed participating in contests because the creative characters, the innovative prompts, and the medley of different prizes always posed to be great incentives to get my juices flowing for new pieces ^_^ I hope this contest is able to do the same for others!! It would make me happy to see a lot of people participating :")
There are two prompts to choose from!
1. Draw a self portrait.
I'm not looking for a realistic, painted bust. Be as creative as you can! It could be a single symbolic scenery w/ various elements, or a collage of various parts of your personalities, or anything you can think of really.

'Just be yourself'As a kid I had problems grasping the meaning of "be yourself". Whenever I asked what it meant, the replies were hardly satisfying. Mostly, I was told NOT to be the way I thought of as ok but to be like the kid next door, because he was so well behaved. Or someone famous, someone rich, because they were successful and the more successful you are, the better.'Just be yourself'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But even at a very young age I already noticed the contradiction here: how was I supposed to be myself if I was copying someone else? This seemed off.
In the end it wasn't a human who was able to explain the concept of "be yourself" to me.
It was a video game.
With a blue hedgehog.
The first thing I noticed about the game was how happy he looked. He was clearly doing the one thing he loved to do, the one thing he did best. And he made a dent with it.
I was impressed.
And then I was hooked.
And by the time we had traveled through three games, I was certain that I had understood the whole "be yourself" thing. And I adored him for it.
