Plz account list ((because I forget them so easily :iconoelplz). They were also taking up too much space on my profile so I have switched them over to this journal. A link will be made that will take you straight here from the front page so no worries~ You'll still be able to find them and this journal will be slowly updated. Comment below if you would like anymore icons added to the list for your convenience. The lines behind the transparent will not show up in chats/comments/journal. It's just the CSS coding of my journal that causes it. They will be brighter also in chats/comments/journals. Another thingie with the journals coding.

Microsoft Surface Pro Hands-On + Thoughts for ArtThe local Boston Microsoft store has the Surface Pro on display, and I got a good solid 30+ minutes to play with it.Microsoft Surface Pro Hands-On + Thoughts for Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Pro is definitely thicker than the Surface RT and even the iPad 1, but it's not to the point of feeling unattractive -- if anything it improves handling a little bit because it makes it nearer to the thickness of something like a book. I had no problem gripping the drive in portrait mode one-handed. (Being a widescreen device, it can get a little uncomfortable in landscape mode, but only if gripped from the sides. Top or bottom is just fine. Two handed is no problem at all.) The great thing about the Microsoft store is that they don't tether their devices down, so you can unplug it, pick it up, move around with it, really get a feel. That said, the weight, at 2 lbs, is no issue to me either. I have big hands, and I'm used to picking up heavy stuff for long periods of time (groceries etc) so I can't speak for everyone on that -- but if I owned the Pro, I'd have no qua
PE: Learning to paint with deviantArtA lot of people want to learn to draw and paint better but they just don't know where to start. You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them. When you know what you want to improve, searching for a good tip gets even easier.PE: Learning to paint with deviantArt2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Rogues Mission 7Ahoy,Rogues Mission 73 years ago in Personal More Like This
Maybe all ye scallywags know 'bout it, or maybe not. If ye don't, ye need t' keep up with gossip more. For your sake, it bears a bit o' repeatin': Devonshire's missing. That leaves me in charge. Yep, ye heard that right, I'm in charge.
Y'know, it seems like summin' I'd be really excited 'bout, but.. really, I'm not. In fact, it makes me a bit mad. I ain't ready for this responsibility. Part o' me is interested, but.. Not yet. I just ain't prepared. And now it's thrust onto me. That don't seem too fair, do it?
Worse than me not bein' ready is just not havin' Devonshire around. We been business partners for so long, and now he's just.. vanished. It's makin' me feel a bit snappy, so if ye talk t' me and I bite yer head off, literally or metaphorically, well.. I ain't sorry. I warned ye.
On that note, I don't really know what happened t' him, he just kinda went poof, but.. I shoulda saw it comin'. I did see it comin'. Devonshire is pretty good for all that ominous sense of doom, and

We're here to help all you prose writers (whether flash fiction, short stories, or novels) get better at your craft with some basic tips for growth. Today, I'm going to be talking about something you've probably heard about again and again: pacing.PE Prose Basics: Pacing ( and Show vs. Tell)1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
What is Pacing?
No, it's not what you do when you're stuck on a scene and need to get up and stretch those leg muscles to get your writing juices flowing. It's actually a very important ability that writers have to control the speed their story is read. You as the author get to manipulate the reader in a way and make the speed of the story match the scene. What better way to drop the reader right into the moment? But, pacing also holds the ability to make or break your story and keep or lose your reader's interest. This is why it's so important in writing.

Macro photography - what is it about?
Wikipedia tells us things like "extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size" (Source: Wikipedia.org)
But is that really all that matters? It is a common fact that many people believe that macro photography is photography which refers to life size

So I have been thinking of doing a few articles apart from feature articles to link some useful resources for artists and this is the first one of these. While this is a mini one, it's helped me a lot on several occassions.
Sometimes it gets confusing to decide which colours to choose. "'Should I go with a turquoise and a gold for the face? What about the room? I was going for a chic cool modern palette which is minimalistic!" Surely, a lot of us have gone through those decisive moments. Below are some colour scheme tools that would help you with your colour scheme choices. Click the titles or the links in asterisk to go to the following sites.

If you like to paint digitally, it doesn't matter what program you are using.
As long as it is functional enough for you, and you enjoy painting when you use it. ^^
I love to try all painting programs, it's like exploring!
Though we already know that Photoshop, Painter and Sai are great, but there are free ones
that good enough to create artwork as beautiful as those programs. ^^
Many times that I randomly posted about them but this time I want to collect them all here!
So it will be convenient for you all to check and compare them.
What I can say is that I'm grateful and appreciate those creators who spent their time and hard working and share them to us.
That's why I want to support and share them to you all!

Well, there are a number of sites out there that I've come across over the years that help with that sort of thing. They pull stock images and such from different sources and give you a randomizer and timer and other features, or show anatomical structures that you can manipulate. Below I'll list some of the ones I've come across that might help you. Some of them have the same images, so you can probably just pick a couple favorites.
An oldie but goodie. I've used this site for ages and it's only gotten better. On it you'll find 3D models of poses that you can rotate around, and they all show the musculature. You can browse the poses, or use the random viewer, or the timed v

Back when they introduced sta.sh, I didn't really use it. Because it seemed hard to get used to. I always wrote my articles in the old way.
Then I toyed with it a little and noticed that is is something really awesome!
Not to mention that the only way to make articles and journals is through Sta.sh Writer.
So I assume not so many if you know that there is a way to make thumbs big!
That is actually pretty easy. All you have to do is add big in front of a thumb code!

Artist WalkthroughThis walkthrough focuses on:Artist Walkthrough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- guiding you as an artist and improving your artistic skills
So having said that... let's get started!
I have been drawing for a long time. Since I was little I would draw all the time on anything I could find. That passion for drawing and art has always stayed with me. But the problem is talent or potential will only get you so far. If you really want to become a great artist you will have to put in many hours of work. And you would preferably have someone there to guide you. Even now I am learning about basic skills I wish I had learned years ago. That is the problem of being self taught... you have to figure everything out yourself. Of course there are benefits to that too. Self taught artists are generally very motivated and passionate people. I have only come to the point where I am now just because I am passionate and slightly obsessed with drawing. But I want to know more, learn more and improve more. So that is why I am setting up this little drawi
