Drawing tips - tutorialHello watchersDrawing tips - tutorial2 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

Teen Titans: Birthmark Screenshots!For some time now, I've been wanting to do a picture of Raven from the Teen Titan's episode "Birthmark". Somehow I've just not gotten to it. Well today I decided to fix that, and started looking for some screenshots from the show for research. And...ugh. Nearly every screenshot I found was worthless. Having no choice, I pulled out my Season 4 DVD of Teen Titans and decided to grab some shots myself. (I even photoshopped a few images that were camera panning shots to make one image) Since it was a process, and maybe others have had this same frustration, I decided to upload a few of my shots for everyone. Hope this helps out! Enjoy.Teen Titans: Birthmark Screenshots!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

time to pay it forwardidea time!time to pay it forward10 months ago in Personal More Like This
every month i will open a suggestions thread for artists you think are good and should get more attention but really dont get the views ...and trust me, i have seen artists whose skills i can only envy having far less views ....faaaaaarrr less than me
even though they are actually superior to me in many aspects.
so this is the idea.
every month i will post a suggestions for a feature journal
you post suggestions of artists you think should be featured
generally we are looking for people under 500k views but it is not a rule
from the suggestions i will choose 5 most suggested and feature them for a week.
we will be doing this every month
in this we all win.. as i too will find more people to follow XD
so roll out the suggestions!
this gonna get good!
ps NOT limited to comic artists!
pps....well f%&k! this escalated quickly XD
might have to rethink the amount of people featured per journal.... maybe 10, cant overdo it 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

On The Subject of LabelsOne of the recurring comments given in my previous journal was "Why do we need to label ourselves at all?", or words to that effect. There are many of you who believe NO-ONE needs a label.On The Subject of Labels3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I both agree and disagree.
I agree, because I think you're right that we don't need to define to ourselves what we are by putting a label on it. I shouldn't say to myself "I'm gay. Therefore, I only am attracted to women." I think that if, in your head, you have a defined, labelled view of what you are, you start conforming yourself around that label. I'm sure many of you have heard stories of men and women who came out, then later admitted to feeling pressured into staying gay because they'd defined themselves as such to so many people. Conforming yourself around a social definition like that cannot be healthy.
But at the same time, I disagree against the idea that we don't need labels in this world at all. We do need them... we just don't need to place extensive mean

Sedikit intermezzo, www.deviantart.com adalah sebuah situs dimana para seniman, desainer, dan pengamat seni nongkrong. Di situs ini kita bisa melihat banyak artwork dipajang, baik untuk kepuasan pribadi sang seniman atau bahkan untuk diperjualbelikan. Nah, yang akan kita bahas kali ini adalah bagaimana sih caranya mendapatkan uang dengan menjual karya/desain/corat-coretan kita???
Untuk bisa mendapatkan dolar dari www.deviantart.com ada beberapa syarat:
Harus bisa menggambar/desain (karena di sini kita ingin menjual karya)

Sexuality Polls?WARNING FOR THE RAMBLINGS OF A TIRED, ILL PERSON!Sexuality Polls?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, you may wonder why I made the polls about sexuality.
From the age of 12 to 16, I was straight. I was always straight, and always going to be straight. I only dated guys, and that was the way it was stuck in my head.
Then at 16, things started changing. I was in a relationship, but I also found myself attracted to girls. In appearance, especially, I found females more appealing than males.
At around 18 or 19, my attraction to men started fading entirely, replaced purely by an interest in women.
At 20, I ended my straight relationship to be with Jenn. By this point, I only found women attractive.
Now I'm 24, and once again, I'm on the fence. I find both men and women attractive visually, but I'm not SEXUALLY attracted to any of them. The only person I honestly find sexually attractive is Jenn. She's female, so I suppose that labels me as a lesbian, as I am quite literally only attracted to females.
But what if, in another world, Jenn

Wedding Journal JoEllen Elam and Jack ConwayThe Beginnings_________________Wedding Journal JoEllen Elam and Jack Conway3 months ago in Personal More Like This
This journal entry will be updated through out our wedding journey! Older entries are at the bottom of this post. I'm so very excited to be sharing my wedding plans with you! At first I was considering buying a wedding dress from a store in downtown LA…and then I came to my senses. Like "WTF am I thinking?? I make fantasy dresses for other people for a living! Why would I buy a generic gown?" I guess seeing too many wedding Pintrest boards brainwashed me into thinking I wanted what everyone else pinned.
Any-who I snapped out of my pintresthaze and started designing my own dream wedding gown and from it all the details have been taking shape. Like with most projects it all starts with with a inspiration piece. Mine is a lace. A lace that I've been admiring for a few years now from a shop in the fabric district that is renowned for it's high end /designer fabrics.
Buying from this store is well
