What's the hardest part of being an artist or greatest challenge?
Being able to concentrate on your path but at the same time finding time to do other things, without being curbed by your work and keeping your mind open to new ideas.
There's not a unique recipe for everyone, and this is maybe a useful thing to think about.
What's the very best piece of advice you've ever received? It doesn't h

Artist's toolbox: Watercolor EquipmentArtist's toolbox: Watercolor Equipment1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
✿ Watercolor Equipment
Watercolor is a painting technique in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble binder. Usually, the result is transparent and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with a few fillers obscuring the pigment color. This medium was never taken as seriously as "high art" techniques such as oil painting and was rather seen as pale and miniaturist, but it's gradually reclaiming it's place as a vehicle for the most beautiful and unexpected artistic expression. Watercolor can be vibrant and large, very vital, spontaneous and leaning a little on luck. All these aspects make watercolor painting a medium with great potential for new discoveries.

Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)Art is a process.Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Like that of the scientific method and philosophical alchemy, art can be refined and improved through process. From observation, to experiment, to reflection and conclusion, art is improved by the steps we make towards change, not solidification and stagnation. Much of the advice out there for drawing is simply practice or avoid distractions. This advice is good, but there is more to creation than just throwing yourself mindlessly into a task and avoiding bad habits along the way. Good habits and knowledge will help to excel your learning process faster, and from that, improve faster and more effectively.
Look at it
As an artist, observation is key. The skill we develop is not just seeing, but interpreting what we see, remembering what we have seen and recording it in the form of visual art. This is a skill that, aside from blindness or vision degradation, you will be able to improve during your entire life. The way of seeing from an art
10 ways to become a better artistDear, deviantart fellow artists10 ways to become a better artist2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
How to become better at art? How to gain necessary skill and how to stay motivated and inspired?
There are no right, or wrong answers to these questions, as we all are different and we have our own creative journeys - but here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Make art with your heart
Make the art that you enjoy to create. Make what resonates with you, put your heart in it (not literally) and it will show through your artworks.
2. Be consistent
Commit to yourself. Do something daily, even if it's just a sketch. Perhaps, do a study every morning or make speedpaintings. You may not see the progress at first, but you shouldn't get discouraged by that. Not every single one of your artworks has to be a masterpiece and it's totally okay to have a bad drawing every once

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi

ID Challenge:How much can you admit about yourselfThe Challenge:ID Challenge:How much can you admit about yourself8 years ago in Personal More Like This
Create an ID that focuses on three aspects of yourself:
a.) Things you love about yourself. Never be ashamed to love yourself; we all have things about us that we adore and wouldn't trade for the world. Be proud of your best features!
b.) Things that you hate about yourself. How much are you willing to admit? Be as honest as possible because understanding and respecting your faults is how you can begin to overcome them.
c.)Things that you're proud of, but maybe shouldn't be. Sometimes there are things you hate in other people but secretly love in yourself. Sometimes there are qualities most people find unattractive that you just love about yourself. These are sometimes our defining features. Bust out the nitty gritty.
originally I was going to make a collage of all of the ID's but I've recieved nearly 100 so I don't think its really possible anymore... but it was never really about the giant collage it was more about the challenge so I hope ever

•Stumbled upon the above picture on tumblr. I first imagined a highschool bully for Abbey for TΛB. The idea for Hana to be Abbey's older sister came some time afterwards when brainstorming Hana's backstory.
•Stumbled upon this picture as well. Primarly saved the image as clothing refs for Michiko Toyoda. I always commented on how Cara (who's name I didn't even know at the time) looked like an ideal daughter for Michiko.
•So the base idea for Hana was set. She would be the daughter of someone with Michiko's likeness and instead of being

Hello minna! @ w @/
How are you guys? For me, college has started and as well as deadlines for projects. I still have to draw still life drawings of boxes for our PDesign. ; - ; I wasn't really satisfied with my drawings during Freehand Drawing and PDesign. It seems like that I forgot to draw or I can't just concentrate since I am not really used to drawing with other people around. Though, I should get used to it more. |||OTL Despite these, I'm pretty happy with our schedule. We don't have classes during Wednesdays and Thursdays. I guess it's a time for us to study and do hws. (I still have hws/projects to finish later. //sigh) I'm bad though XD I do other things first before doing them. Yes. //hides >w>

Due to time difference, I always did my art pieces after midnight except on my off duty days thus I maybe really exhausted to do or will do little by little to progress. Complicated requests will take longer time thus you have to be patient with me. That's something I wanted to point out the most. I'm still listing it and making sure it's in reasonable price. I will update another journal with all the Commission List to announce the re-opening. I will try to have it up in an hour or two. If I can't finish it up, I will upload it tomorrow. :iconilikeitplz:
