Eu não sou a melhor pessoa para passar dicas à alguém. Na verdade, eu nem me considero suficientemente capaz de dar algum ensinamento. Mas eu sempre fui muito curiosa e interessada com o mundo da pintura digital, ficando horas e horas e horas assistindo vídeos de 2 horas de duração no Youtube, livestreams intermináveis, a fim de aprender. Apesar da necessidade de se ter uma paciência (de ouro), foi o que mais me ajudou a aprender e a desenvolver os meus conhecimentos. Criando esse hábito, acabei conhecendo e desenvolvendo as técnicas que apresento hoje nos meus trabalhos. Provavelmente como muitos de vocês que agora me leem, cheguei a pedir a ajuda de muuitos artistas que eu admirava, e alguns até me ajudaram como podiam, mas a maioria simplesmente não se importa com o quanto

Thanks for all the sweet and kind reactions here. I'm glad I had to choose the winner by random. Otherwise it would've been impossible to make a choice out of all those sweet people ^^
Anyhow, I'm glad to announce that the winner is: :iconjaetizzy:
Congrats with your premium membership, and I hope you will be following me in the future.
For the rest of you: stay tuned. I usually do another give-away at the end of the year. And I might do another, since I have some stuff laying around here.
Wow! I've never thought my watch-counter would ever hit 10k, but it eventually did. With the last few journals and art tutorials going viral on both DA and tumblr, the link to my account has suddenly been widespread on the internet. I'm still unsure whether to be happy with it or not (getting known means you get lots of hate as well), but at least I'm thankful to all those

What's a 7 Days Drawing Challenge?
The challenge is drawing 7 different things based on 7 themes I will give you guys. A drawing a day. I know it may sound a bit tiring but the objective is to keep yourself inspired during 7 days in a row. The more you draw, the more you'll feel like drawing!
What about the Rules?
The only rule is that you have to draw (and submit) something each day! It doesn't matter the media nor the art style. That means it can be traditional or digital. The style may be realistic, manga/anime, cartoon, etc. It may be a Black&White artwork but it has to be a final piece. Oh! Don't forget to mention me with "Picolo-kun" so it will pop up into my messages and I'll be able to see the artwork!

Coming Back!Thank you everyone who has supported me and given me their valuable advice about how to deal with my family situation in China. I'm happy to say that my father and I are on much better terms now. It's honestly more than I could ever have hoped for and I haven't been this happy in a long time.Coming Back!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The comments you guys left really helped me believe in myself. Thanks to everyone's encouragement, I know I wasn't in the wrong. I was able to firmly explain my problems with my father. It took many long and heated discussions before we finally came to an understanding but it was definitely worth it. He eventually admitted that he was wrong, and shouldn't have brushed me aside as being "too bothersome" or not worth angering his crazy wife for. He said he regrets the way he treated me, and has promised to try to visit me once a year. It's really hard to put into words how much that means to me, and I truly thank you all for helping me get to this point.

Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Anime and manga: a booming industry in many parts of the the world. The beautiful and unique style of art and its exquisite stories enticed many readers and captured many young artist's hearts. This is how I started drawing; my love for manga and anime led me to a love of drawing. But like any abilities, good skills do not come overnight; and they don't come no matter how long you sit and wait for them.
I've hit a roadblock in my advancement so I decided to ask my favorite manga artists their own personal experience. It turned out, many of them had difficulties that I'm currently countering. Their advices are most helpful, and I hope you find them helpful too.
To those who never picked up a pencil to draw outside of manatory art classes in school: Read and see the process and other aspects of becoming a good artist. Maybe they can spark a drawing interest in you.
To those who are casual doodlers: These tips may turn you from casual to hard-c
Things You Must Never Say To An ArtistTo be an artist is already a very hard path, but there is someone who seems have fun to ruins your day.Things You Must Never Say To An Artist2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I listed some things personally i hate listening. I do not want offence anyone, but, of course, you want the same thing i want too: Respect.
Art is also a job. If you think drawing and painting is something of fantastic, you're right! But every worker who loves his work thinking in the same way! If you ask to your idraulic to do a free work "so can be visible and promotional to my friends", probably he will throws you one of his tools. The same for as artists. Artist alive with this job, no FREE works, so, go to second point.
I learned it from my other job: a "client" came to me and ask to restorer in style he want that antique furniture. I make it, and when finished his response was: "Ohhh, i like but i admit i think it was less dark", and the sale is failed. This is my experience, and this is the reason when i process as commission (hal

You were taking part in an Allies' emergency meeting.It was very late,so you were too tired to pay attention to the countries' utterances.You didn't have to hear,anyway.You already knew that they would fight again over unimportant issues.You just rested your head onto your arms,which were boringly outstretched on the table.
''(Name)!'',you heard a familiar voice calling you,while you felt a soft touch on your back.You raised your head lazily and you came face to face with certain violet eyes.
''(Name),the meeting's over.'',he said in his usual,Russian accent.
''Thanks for informing me...'',you answered with laziness,while you were trying to stand up from the chair you were sitting.In parallel,a light blush had covered your face,thinking that Ivan had awakeen you.

Going to China!It's been almost five years since I last visited my homeland, and I'm excited and scared at the same time.Going to China!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My last visit in 2009 left me a bit traumatized but I think I'm okay now. My stepmother and half brother in China had tried to kill me with a kitchen knife. I was shaking and crying when I escaped in a taxi that night. After that event, I couldn't feel safe anymore. I changed my flight to return to the US sooner, and never wanted to go back again.
But that's in the past now. I miss my grandparents and other relatives. I miss the food, the cicadas, the unique mountainscape of Sichuan, and ever dwindling bits of the old city that's quickly being replaced by skyscrapers.
I'm looking forward to seeing how much China has changed. Though I'm not looking forward to breathing that air. Air pollution is such a constant health hazard that I had to buy hundreds of dollars worth of respirators for me and my grandparents. I will also be buying air purifiers (that's another five hundred dollars
Protect Your WorkFor many artists, art theft is a frustrating reality. No matter how we watermark, logo, or constrain the resolution of our work, there are instances where artwork will be reposted, ripped, or used for commercial gain without credit or compensation. For some, this can be almost flattering, to know that there are those that like your work enough to steal it. But, the fact still remains, that your work has been used without permission, and for no gain of your own.Protect Your Work1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I have been a photographer for four years now, and throughout that time I am always learning. Part of that education is around copyright, and how to protect my work. The collage above is a brief representation of some of the ways my photography has been stolen. Some were edited without permission, event advertisements, included in a calendar, manipulated to advertise jewelry, sold on canvas, for promoting a cosmetic brand, or even for music videos.
