History of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefaces2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typefaces are our instruments to construct words and sentences. Of course this very article couldn’t be written without type other than writing by hand and scanning it in, but I wouldn’t know how to save the file or how to access the website to upload it to if I had no access to typefaces. Of course I don’t have to say where type can be found; it’s absolutely everywhere. However, most people don’t consider where typefaces come from. Most of my life and even the first 5 years or so of my design career I was absolutely ignorant of where typefaces came from. I mean, they were just "there" on the computer and I never considered someone actually had to make typefaces for us to use—letter by letter. In this article I will discuss the history of Roman typefaces; how it progressed during the ages, how each style can be recognized and how to select typefaces consciously and logically r

Critique and youThere was a small discussion in my last journal about unhelpful tutorials, that touched the topic of critique.Critique and you9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
So, I decided to talk about critique for a bit.
In the online art community there is no unified stance on critique. Some people are totally incapable of recieving any form of critisism of their creation and think it's the devil. Some think that critique is should always be a "sandwich". Some people think that anything goes and the artist should listen to all feedback if he chooses to publish art online. Some say critique is only valid "constructive" and some say that it doesn't take a chef to know the steak was burnt.
I'll talk about how I percieve it - and mind you, my perception had changed over the years. This is more about what I figured during this time.
Point 1: Feedback is essential for development. That's not a solely artistic thing. Every human activity implies there's a trial and error process involved in the honing of any skill and being taught that skill. Thing is,

On Sundays by *begemott
A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

An artwork of your animal friend
By an animal friend, I mean your own pet, but it can also be your family pet, family dog for example, as well as some animal you're closely connected to and love very much, like that one special horse of your granddad's you made friends with and love to ride.
Does my animal friend have to be..uhm...alive?
No. I even encourage making an artwork of an animal you loved very much, but unfortunately is no longer with you, for whichever reason. Always wanted to draw your dog you spent so many wonderful years together? Now's a good time.

It doesn't have to be something physical. It could also be mental.
It could be an object, a memory, a person/troll, a lusus, a friend, or a simple sadness... basically anything that would be considered sad or painful.
So you want to draw Guilty Gear Fanart, do you?If you're going to do Guilty Gear Fanart here's some opinionated Advice (from someone who obsesses over GG):So you want to draw Guilty Gear Fanart, do you?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sol isn't just about being a handsome guy. Drawing his bare chest all day isn't really the only facet to the man.
Think about it this way, he's a wild man. He has crazy hair, he can tear Gears apart, almost with his bare hands. He's not human so don't force that aspect of him.
A good pic of him fighting a giant Gear is always welcome.
That, and he's an asshole, not really a 'nice guy type'. So try to capture that.
Ky isn't a waif. He's not weak. He's wiley and strong, beyond his years. It's very rare, but he does have very deadly (almost fox-like) eyes at times and can be at a man's throat in a heartbeat. (If you've ever seen Serpico in Berserk, he's like him).
Sure he's polite, sure he's upholding justice, but the man's holding back. He didn't survive the Crusades just on character alone.

In other news, there's a great new program for comic artists that I would like to share. It's part of Tapastic's Primetime Publishing Program (PPP) that pays comic artists based on the amount of page views they generate. If you are a comic artist, then you can make some extra money doing what you love. If you're not a comic artist, you can still check out all the cool webcomics on Tapastic.com and help support the artists that way

Paid Poetry Contest and Legend Winners!I have updated this with a question that is unrelated to the topics below. Has anyone else had activity messages and comments disappear from their "inbox"?Paid Poetry Contest and Legend Winners!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I started the Wordsmiths group here at DA, I had three goals - produce a new sitehttp://word-smyths.com/ , an ezine http://artsmyths.wordpress.com/ and a paid poetry contest. I have accomplished the first two.
I am about to embark on the third project - a poetry contest with a cash prize awarded to the first three place winners.
The contest will be poetry only and will run from August 1 - October 31, 2012. The theme is "Color". You can choose to write about one color, or many. You can describe a situation, person, object, scene - anything, but describe it in color(s). How it looks...makes you feel.
The prizes will be as listed below: (It would be helpful to have a Paypal account in order to be paid.)

Legend of Korra Book 2 - DO NOT WANTIts rare that I find myself wishing that we as fans of series do NOT get more of something, but after a very VERY bad reboot of Avatar, the last airbender in Korra the schizophrenic love triangulating bitch who came out a year or two ago, I'm just not hyped to see more. Let me be more clear:Legend of Korra Book 2 - DO NOT WANT2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I do not want to see this. I don't know anyone that wants to see this. I haven't met any fans of Avatar: TLA that want more of Korra.
Korra lacked any import, she was a side character in her own series. The series was too short to tell any sort of meaningful story or experience real character development. She was never in any real danger, not with all the drooling slack-jawed male half-wits competing over who will get to bang the avatar willing to die for her at EVERY opportunity. Then in the final episode, bam! Suddenly all holes plugged, literally, superpowers attained as if by plot convenience, suddenly spirit powers go!, and 'i luv u forevar korra!'
Yeah, no. Fuck no. H
