The Opposite of Speed Painting (by Matt Kohr)If youtube viewers (in general) have decided that speed painting is awesome, what must the opposite be? Is painting slowly a waste of time? In this post I'll argue that painting slowly not only saves time, but creates much better results.The Opposite of Speed Painting (by Matt Kohr)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Allure of Speed Painting
I've talked about this particular issue in previous videos, so I'll be brief here. In short, speed paint videos create a very unrealistic expectation for art-making. Art takes time. Period. Not only are these youtube videos showcasing a sub-optimal painting method, they're also speeding up the playback to an absurd degree. It's totally understandable that a new digital artist might feel disheartened at the slow pace of their own mark-making after watching such videos. So if you're in this boat - you're not alone. The video below elaborates on this issue, as well as painting 'silhouettes' (and other visual development shorthand). So if

PE Interview with =agnes-cecileSilvia is, without any doubt, one of the most marking figures of this site. Many thousands love her works and some artists consider her to be the role model of their artistic life. Instead of rambling about how she is a popular figure of this site, i decided to show you what other people think of her.PE Interview with =agnes-cecile3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Green-EyedGhost says: "Her art is inspiring, emotional, brilliant, incredible, indescribable. Her every single work is what actually can be called art. She always inspires me, she is the most amazing artist I've ever seen in my life!"
airheadOMer completes: "...she has a brilliant and copious use of color. All her work is very intricate and lavish while remaining fairly luminous and simple. It has a wonderful flow to it and is, basically, quite beautiful. She has ineffable talent and her work shows that."
With this being said, let's see what agnes-cecile has to say!

DeviantART community, I am very honored and very pleased to announce that for today, we will be having Arthur Fong, a visual development artist at DreamWorks Animation Studios. He is part of the team who made us giggle with The Croods and made us feel with so much awe in The Rise of the Guardians especially to all the Jack Frost Fans out there. The interview will be all about some insights on the modern day cartoons and to see how the persons behind the cartoon shows that we love work and how they put so much effort in making us smiles each time we watch such great movies and shows.

EMERGENCYLadies and gentlemen, please lend me your ear. Although I am not allowed to say exactly why, I need your help.EMERGENCY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You see, today I was hit by a bombshell. Things are very bad right now and I need help to get the word out about my tutoring business. Basically, I need to get work ASAP or I am royally screwed in ways you can't imagine.
I will be teaching basic Japanese and advanced English via Skype. Lessons are IDEALLY $30 an hour, but I am willing to negotiate and there are free consults where I will have a video chat on Skype with the student in the language they want lessons in to see what level they are at. The hours are flexible and go from Monday to Friday, and payments can be either all in advance or half first and half after the week's lessons are complete. I'm aiming to work a MINIMUM of 5 hours a day during weekdays. Also, once I start earning more money, I'll be mailing gifts to hard working students using a percentage of my own earnings. Anyone that is interested, please note me

Appreciation and some advice for beginnersI have had this journal in mind for quite a long time, thinking I will find a time to write it down after I find a job (so that I can give 'advice' as a professional ). I've been less active in the past weeks since I was on a probation in a game company and I thought I would make it this time, unfortunately today I was told I have to go back to job hunting again. Anyway I'm not gonna wait any longer since some of my fellow deviants have been asking for advice for a long time.Appreciation and some advice for beginners2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I start – my apologies if some points in this journal are not clear because of language, I am not a native English speaker.
I'm not giving these advice as a professional or an elite artist (I hope I was!), just sharing my learning experience and some personal understanding of conceptual design and arts. Please ignore or correct me if I got things wrong.
Ok. Some related information about myself – I studied computing at university, in my final year I found myself really lack of interests in programming or

"In dreams everything is possible... you may look at the sunrise, but at the same time there is a night above you. Most distant planets can become closest ones. You may run on the water and fly like a bird. World can become opposite, where sea animals start to fly and breathe the air. It's a place where your fantasy and imagination becomes free." - tincek-marincek

My deviantART StoryIt has now been over 10 years since I first decided to join deviantART and little did I know then, this decision would end up forging my entire life and career.My deviantART Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I wish I remembered exactly how it all started, but I'm going to go with my best guess and say I heard about it from another student when I started college back when I had just turned 18. Up until then I had been using various art forums such as wcreplays.com, animex.com, sijun.com and cgsociety.org so the discovery of a portfolio website was a pretty cool thing.
I started posting on here and got moderate attention, I had been drawing for a long time at that point so my art was in a state where it was at least interesting to look at. If anything it was a fantastic place to get inspiration and look at art from amazingly talented artists.
It wasn't until I decided to color the line-art for the following piece that everything really started.

Storage Areas or Twilight Zones?
Most basements and attics are part of the house, but not a part of the home.
Especially in childhood, these poorly-lighted areas are, at best, under a family’s occupation – but one can never trust that any spectral entities or spirits who might be there, abiding in the shadows, are ever fully loyal to the current family living in their home. Here’s a gallery of deviations to help you recall that first afternoon you eve
