Link to class--> Start Drawing: Techniques for Pencil Portraits
Seven years ago when I was struggling to learn portraiture, I remember saying to my mom, "When I "get" this, I'm going to teach everyone how to do it!" So here we are, seven years later and I'm ready to share the knowledge I've discovered.
After years of studying with professional portrait artists, lots of reading about how to draw the face, and by studying the works of master artists like Sargent, Bouguereau, Vanderpoel, and Loomis I'm ready to share the most helpful information I

What is a "plz" account?
A "plz" account is a deviantART account where the avatar is an emote that you can use in your journals, comments, etc.
How do you use them?
To use them, write :icon(thenameoftheaccount):
An example is :iconsupertighthugplz: which is written as :icon supertighthug plz: (minus the spaces)
Some popular accounts are:
To get the account name, roll your mouse over the image and copy the text you see beginning with an :icon and ending in a :.

Pure JoyThis year (2011) for the Holidays I followed Bentley on a great adventure. He'd seen me stressing out all year and he finally put his paw down. I canceled the plans I had originally made. And he made me follow my heart. Even though I had my doubts.. It turns out, Bentley is wise.Pure Joy4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Off we were to Mammoth Mountain, on some last minute plans. The type where you know things are being rushed and so they won't go well. But Bentley had faith. So first he enlisted my Mom, jeanpat because he prefers when she feeds him. She gives him too much in his bowl!
And Viktoria o-KOUKLA-o plays with him in the mornings if I'm still asleep, so she's pretty key to having fun.
And chris keeps the evening games of Settlers of Catan going until the wee hours, so no one interrupts him (Bentley) when he's sleeping!
Out of WorkOut of Work3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
"I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of "work"
because I think that just being alive is so much work
at something you don't always want to do.
Being born is like being kidnapped. And then sold into slavery.
People are working every minute. The machinery is always going.
Even when you sleep."
(Andy Warhol, out of work since February 22, 1987)

THE ART OF KNOTTINGTHE ART OF KNOTTING2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
AIMS:The aim of this series of articles is to give a very brief, introductory, overview of the subject of knots. To do so I shall examine the significance and effects of knots; and their uses and techniques, which were, and continue to be, immensely important, if not critical, to human history and evolution on our planet. Naturally the main thrust of the series, in it's totality, will be threefold:
1: Relating it, (the series of articles on knotting), to this amazing project on Art History in particular, it's effects on "Art" in all senses of the term, as well as Knots as an "Art form", (not to mention various "Craft" forms!), in and of themselves.
2: Although I shall try not to be "skimpy" or too "cursory" in my inclusions, this is an "introduction" to the subject, so is not designed to be definitive at all... merely, I hope, interesting and varied enough to whet the readers appetite for the subject...

This was such a success last year that I'm doing it again for my 25th birthday!
Pick your favorite story from the list below and draw a scene or characters from it! I try to be diverse in my writing; Action, drama, science fiction, romance, humans, robots... There should be something in there for everybody. This year's pool has some old classics and some new favorites. Some characters have reference pictures already, but some have never been visually depicted before. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Some stories contain characters that belong to other people but feel free to draw them as well. You may enter as many times as you like.
Need textures?We had a feature of drawing references yesterday, so let's take a look at textures now. I must admit that I'm a total freak when it comes to this topic. I love textures, I love making them and I love seeing them everywhere.

Captain Levi FC’s Year In Review
This group is over a year old by now, and I wanted to celebrate the beginning of a new year with a special journal looking back at 2014, and hoping for the best in 2015.
This year, we learned Levi’s last name:
We found out how Levi and Erwin met, and how he ended up in the Survey Corps
That's definitely how it happened. Yep.
And then we got the first Episode of an OVA of it!
such beautiful animation *swoons*
I am predicting that there will be four or five episodes. The second one comes out in March, and from what I can tell, it just covers their training. What do you think?
We also added a TON of awesome art to our gallery!
Most recently, we exchanged gifts for the Holidays and also to celebrate Levi’s birthday. Let’s take a look at these shall we?
White Roses for an Eternal BondThere is a song, White Rose of Athens, sung by Nana Mouskouri, and with its haunting lyrics, it was one of my mother's favorites. "So goodbye my love till then Till the white rose blooms again" I had been living in Athens Greece for six years, and it was from there that I sent my mother the first gift of white roses as a "Mother's Day" gift. But I sent it on my birthday. In my early twenties, I came to the realization that my birthday was not only about me being born on that day. The special day was also about my mother, who had given me the most wonderful gift of all... life! How can it be that Mother's Day and Birthdays have been so unnaturally "separated?"White Roses for an Eternal Bond3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
