Drawing tips - tutorialHello watchersDrawing tips - tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some people ask me how I learned to draw and what tips I can give them! So I wrote a tutorial and hope it will help! Here are my tips for you to become a better drawer!
First of all a good drawing stands with good materials. Good paper (no copy paper) and good pencils. If you're not sure, the expensive ones are mostly pretty good! For graphite I use Staedtler Mars Lumograph and for colour Faber-Castell "Polycromos".You need to use different numbers of pencils: 4H for very light areas and 6B for the dark areas. A big contrast in a drawing makes a better drawing! You can't make a good drawing with one HB pencil. You need a 6B or 4B to create more depth in the drawing.Choose a good picture. The greatest drawer in the world can't make a good drawing from a bad picture. A high-resolution image is necessary to see all the details! Next to the high-resolution, it has to be an interesting picture. The result could be a beautiful drawing, however a boring image wouldn't attract a
Sonic Archie's FutureOk! Let's get this started. First off, there is this big debate on the redesigns of the SatAM cast; Bunnie, Nicole, Rotor, Antoine, and the most discussed, Sally.Sonic Archie's Future2 years ago in Personal More Like This
NOW, people are complaining on the redesigns because they're either taking away certain features of a character or adding features. BUT, let's not forget this is coming after the Megaman crossover and Eggman AGAIN went and messed things up! So, let's say the redesigns are only the aftermath of the crossover. They might not even be permanent!
However, people are still flipping their lids wither it's Bunnie and the return of her cyborg parts, Nicole looking like Blaze, (no comment for Rotor), Antoine ditching his coat, and Sally being fully clothed.
Now, some are disliking Ant.'s redesign because he has formality and apparently the coat is his trademark and a lot dislike Sally's redesign because, let's just say her design looks a lot like one of Amy's outfits with shirt, pants, gloves, bangles and what not. It might also be bec

ART CONTEST!!!!I am always very interested in the ways artists reinterpret my own works, but I also would like to see what they could create just based on my image: a sort of portrait based on my pictures, but not a mere copy of the photo; I am mostly curious about how they could imagine me in a totally different context.ART CONTEST!!!!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I decided to start a contest
Rules are simple:
- Make a drawing or a painting portraying me, but without just copying one of my pictures;
- Works will be judged based on originality and technique;
- Send the work to firstname.lastname@example.org within the 15th of january, 2015.
Prizes will be:
- 1st place: 3 numbered collectable DVDs of my "Anima Persa" trilogy: "Malacreanza", "Il Mondo Perduto" and "Inferno Veneziano", three artfilms by Cosmotropia De Xam, signed by me + "Antropophagus" CD by Mater Suspiria Vision (another project I work with, masters of Witch House);
- 2nd place: 1 numbered collectable DVD chosen from the ones above, still signed + "Antropophagus" CD by Mater Suspiri

Tips for Warrior Cats fansOr you know.. anyone interested in creating a feline OC of some sort.Tips for Warrior Cats fans2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tri colored (calico) felines are nearly always female. Males do exist, but are often sterile. Only about 1 in 3000 male calico cats can actually breed. This is because of the fact that the X chromosome in the cat actually determines its colour (and females have 2 X chromosomes).
Also, if you're DYING to make a cat OC with heterochromia, at least do some mild research. In felnes, it mainly affects white cats, but CAN still happen to other coloured cats as long as they have the gene. All felines are born with blue eyes and as they develop, their eye colour changes. This condition is actually quite often see in some specific breeds. Oriental shorthair, sphynx, and persian being the three I remember. There are more though. Also, about 60 or so percent of felines with heterochromia are deaf. Also, in felines with heterochromia, one eye is often blue, while the o

I have not been creating a feature for this group TheFavouriteShowcase for ages, but yet it is one of the oldest groups were I really feel home all the time.
I also owe my gratitude to the founder of this group for introducing me to many features of deviantART and support me in my first time on dA.
Who introduced me to deviantART and gave me my very first premium membership.
I will never forget this moment when I opened dA that very morning!
In gratitude to her and her group(s), I dedicate this feature to her
Unleash your dark sideIdk if many of you know, but when I was younger I got bullied in school for what I enjoyed, I bring this up because of what recently happen to a kid for liking MLP and being bullied for it, to the point of almost taking his own life.Unleash your dark side2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I hated school and people in general, I know there's no real easy way to handle it and everyone takes things differently.
But I want to encourage those that do have problems to try to your best to vent with your art even if people around you won't listen..
I know it seems silly now and weird. but back when I was bullied and ignored, rocketchu and growlash was how I got out my anger that I felt to the ones that bullied me.
sometimes it can be fun to play the bad guy through art, to get your revenge that way or at lest it helped satisfy my hurt and anger back in high school. I used them to make my art work even better.
Stay strong no matter what, re
My Blah's and Photoshop GuideI've actually had my personal friends actually tell me that I may have some mental problems that I need to look over and it mostly got me into wondering what could really be wrong with me. It just really has me worried more than anything else but at the same time, I don't wanna worry about it anymore. :/ I can't afford to seek professional help anyway if there are any mental disorders that I could possibly have.My Blah's and Photoshop Guide2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok, I also wanted to repost up this guide because I've had people tell me that they find my quick photoshop guide really helpful.
1ST STEP: LINEART
Many people seem to think that I actually draw my linearts directly in photoshop. Actually, I don't. I draw all my linearts traditionally, or by hand first and then I scan them to my computer. Some people may prefer drawing their linearts digitally, which is fine but it might be easier for you do that if you own a tablet >.<' Since I paint everything with a mouse
Symbol(s) for the non Premium DeviantsHello my Ryceballs. So eversince DA's recent symbol changes, I have been hearing a lot of complaints. Mostly about how regular non premium members don't even get a symbol. It makes them feel like they are not important. Its ok I hear ya I hear ya. And you know me, I am all about the people. Ry-Spirit cares. So I thought about this a lot and try to think of an appropriate symbol that best suits our non premium friends, at the end I came up with a symbol... WELL I say a symbol but its more like a string of symbols. I feel like this is the only option for it to work. And I have used myself as an example of what the symbols would look like if I am in fact a regular deviant. Ok please look below.Symbol(s) for the non Premium Deviants2 years ago in Personal More Like This
