Holding a contest! :D Added new prizes + Entries

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 7, 2014, 11:02 AM

I added higher prizes because I've received many amazing entries and they deserve more than poor 1200 pts >A< maybe I'll put a higher prize later ♥
Puse premios más altos porque he recibido varias entradas increíbles y merecen más que 1200 puntos >A< tal vez los aumente un poco más después ♥


Hello! :iconexcitedhiplz:
It's been a while since I felt like doing a contest :)
And so many people have been incredibly generous with me lately ;_; so I have enough points for the prizes :heart:
Thank you all who donated points, luv u! ♥

You gotta draw my characters Berian and Kimberly:

What you need to know:
:bulletblue: They are just friends at the moment. The picture may contain slight romance since these two are meant to be together, but nothing explicit like kisses on the mouth. I'll do that eventually ;D
:bulletblue: Their personality. Kimberly is shy, and just a sweet girl. Berian is serious (serious, not grumpy, I don't wanna see him angry), he won't show his emotions that much. Maybe a little smile or light blush but no more. There are more details about them in the descriptions of these drawings:
Kim - description by Myly14 Berian... (uh-oh I did a fc) by Myly14
:bulletblue: Try not to miss details of their designs. (Please notice Berian's color palette in his reference above ♥) Here are more examples:
Beriiii by Myly14Fc's doodles by Myly14Kimberly by Myly14

What gives you points:
:bulletblue: If you pay attention to the points above, of course :)
:bulletblue: If the picture is colored, it's better ;w;
:bulletblue: Background is not needed, but if you want to add one, that will give you points too ^^
:bulletblue: If you're creative with the characters interactions

"Well, what about the prizes?! That's what really matters!" (lol)
:bulletgreen: First place: 1600 :points:
:bulletgreen: Second place: 900 :points:
:bulletgreen: Third place: 500 :points:
:bulletgreen: 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th place: 100 :points: each.
I know they're not that much but it's all I got :/ and my love XD <3
Extra prize:
Maybe you noticed Berian's clothes are lame, lol! That's because I didn't try hard to design them, you can design his clothes too if you want! The better clothing design wins a flat colored sketch of one character, like this:
Designs by Myly14
I don't mind if your work is not the best as long as the design is good, you can still win the sketch :D. But if you win the first place and also the best design your prize is 1200:points: + drawing from me. Although, it's not necessary! it's just an option!

I just hope you wanna join and you have fun drawing my characters :)
Thank you for reading! Entries will be updated every week I hope.

End of the contest: January 31th 2015. I think it's enough time, but if needed, I might extend the date one month. Good luck!
No need to ask if you can join, just put the link to your work in this journal!


Hola! :iconexcitedhiplz:
Desde hace mucho quería hacer un concurso :)
Y muchas personas han sido increíblemente generosas conmigo ultimamente ;_; por lo que tengo suficientes puntos para los premios :heart:
Gracias a todos los que me donaron puntos, Lus amu! ♥

Tienes que dibujar a mis personajes Berian y Kimberly:

Lo que necesitas saber:
:bulletblue: Son solo amigos por el momento. El dibujo puede tener leve romance porque estos dos fueron creados para estar juntos, pero nada explícito como besos en la boca. Yo haré eso eventualmente ;D
:bulletblue: Su personalidad. Kimberly es tímida, y solo una chica dulce. Berian es serio (serio, no enojón, no quiero verlo enojado), él no enseña mucho sus emociones. Tal vez una pequeña sonrisa o un leve sonrrojo pero nada más. Hay más detalles de ellos en las descripciones de estos dibujos:
Kim - description by Myly14 Berian... (uh-oh I did a fc) by Myly14
:bulletblue: Intenta no descuidar los detalles de sus diseños. (Por favor toma en cuenta la paleta de colores en la referencia de Berian arriba ♥) Aquí hay más ejemplos:
Beriiii by Myly14Fc's doodles by Myly14Kimberly by Myly14

Qué te da más puntos:
:bulletblue: Si pones atención a lus puntos mencionados arriba, por supuesto :)
:bulletblue: Si el dibujo es coloreado, es mejor ;w;
:bulletblue: Dibujo de fondo no es necesario, pero si queres añadir uno, eso te dará más puntos también ^^
:bulletblue: Si eres creativo con la interacción de los personajes

"Bueno, y qué hay de los premios?! Eso es lo que importa!" (lol)
:bulletgreen: Primer lugar: 1600 :points:
:bulletgreen: Segundo lugar: 900 :points:
:bulletgreen: Tercer lugar: 500 :points:
:bulletgreen: 4to, 5to, 6to y 7mo lugar: 100 :points: cada uno.
Sé que no es mucho pero es todo lo que tengo :/ y mi amor XD <3
Premio extra:
Tal vez te diste cuenta de que la ropa de Berian es simple, lol! Es porque no me esforcé tanto en diseñarla, tú puedes diseñar su ropa también si quieres! El mejor diseño de su ropa gana un "flat colored sketch" de un personaje, como este:
Designs by Myly14
No me importa si tu trabajo no es el mejor si el diseño es bueno, puedes ganar el sketch :D. Pero si ganas el primer lugar y además el mejor diseño tu premio es 1200:points: + un dibujo mío. Aunque, no es necesario hacerlo! es sólo una opción!

Sólo espero que quieras participar y te diviertas dibujando a mis personajes :)
Gracias por leer! Las entradas las pondré en el journal cada semana, espero.

Fecha final del concurso: 31 Enero 2015. Creo que es suficiente tiempo, pero si es necesario, podría extender la fecha un mes. Buena suerte!
No necesitas preguntar si puedes participar, solo pon el link de tu trabajo en este journal!

Sup guys and girls!

First of all, I want to apologize for not responding to you guys. I get piles of comments and notes on this account. 
I know I've been getting many questions via PM and notes on DA and Facebook, but I haven't been able to answer them all. I do read them so keep commenting and sending notes!
I would like to have the opportunity for all to ask me common questions about me or anything art and game related here. I'll look through the comments and update this Journal Entry with new Q&A.
Only request is that you ask some relevant questions and not something too personal and inappropriate. 

With that said, ask away!

1. What type of Program do you use? What tablet do you use?
  • I use Adobe Photoshop CS5. I have tried couple other programs like SAI, Alias Sketchbook Pro, and Painter X, but photoshop has all the tools I need to create art.
  • I have Wacom Intuos 5 and Wacome Cintiq 22UX mounted on ergotron arm. 
2. How long does it take to complete a piece?
  • It really depends on what I'm working on, complexity of the piece, what style I'm going for, etc. 
  • For a simple sketch and drawing that I've been doing, they take about couple of hours to a day. 
  • For a full on rendering painting, I spend like 5 to 8 hours a day total of 1 to 3 weeks depending on the complexity of the piece. 
  • On personal project, I take my time and try to have fun rather than race myself to a deadline. 
  • At Riot, we do have deadlines but producers are very generous about giving us more time if needed especially when there are necessary changes that needs to be made towards the end. But I usually hit the deadlines :D
3. Did you go to school for art?
  • I did! I went to Art Center College of Design for 3 years. I almost graduated but I decided to leave and get an early start in the industry. That's when I got hired at Riot Games. 
4. How did you learn about concept art and character design? Have you had a course or did you study it yourself? 
  • Both! at first I was mostly self taught. I grew up in Arizona state, where there's absolutely no decent art programs in schools. I studied Computer Science Engineering for first semester then I went undecided for another semester because of how much I hated programming and I wasn't sure what to do with my life. Then I discovered Industrial Design, closest profession to concept art for games and movies available to me at the time. I wasn't very passionate about it, so I struggled through it for 3 years, doing fantasy art and doodles on the side. Then I heard students talking about Art Center College of Design which is highly respected school in NA for industrial design and I guess they're one of the first to provide concept art degree. So I took a year to prepare my application and portfolio. Art Center gave me a lot of knowledge about art and connections in the industry. 
  • The course at Art Center have been useful. I still think about it til this day! Anatomy, Shape Language, Silhouette, Color Theory, etc.
5. have you ever thought about making any tutorials on how you digitally paint? if there is one that already exists, can you provide links or resources? thank you!
  • I'm working on some tutorial video or timelapse video with commentary. There will be one from and my Gumroad page. Please check back in a month or two!

Thanks for the questions more Answers coming up!

PE: Art Nouveau

Fri Jul 5, 2013, 3:00 PM

Art Nouveau

A.k.a. "That beautiful detailed flowery art style".

Art Nouveau 13 by ssava


:bulletblue: Origins :bulletblue:

Art Nouveau is an art movement that was most popular between 1890 and 1910. It originated in England and France, where it spread over the last two decades of the 19th century. The origins in each respective country vary though. For example, the German "Jugendstil" was first used 1897 as criticism against cheap mass production of works from artists like Henry van de Velde. Art Nouveau was by far no consistent art movement; there were several geographical differences, although some basic characteristics stayed the same. Those key features are decorative curves and flowery elements.

All in all "Art Nouveau" constisted of divergent art movements in Europe.

:bulletblue: Names :bulletblue:

Art Nouveau: France, French for 'New Art',

Jugendstil: Germany, German for 'Young Style', stems from the illustrated magazine "Jugend"

Modernisme: Catalonia (Spain), Catalan for 'Modernism'

Модерн: Russia, 'Modern'

Secession: Austria-Hungary, after 'Wiener Secession'

Stile Floreale/Liberty: Italy, Italian for 'Flowery'; 'Liberty' from a store called 'Liberty'

Defining Features

So, how can you recognize Art Nouveau?

As I briefly mentioned above, the style's most noticable features are flowery ornaments and decorative curves. Many decorative elements are based on nature, like grass, twings, tendrils, or most popularily, the ever-present flower.

In paintings, shading and spatial depth are not important; outlines of the main figures are emphasised instead. Apart from that, symmetry is often neglected, especially in architecture.

No matter the medium - be it paiting, architecture or sculpturing - the overall goal was to convey beauty and decorative quality. A common motive are idealised female characters adorned with flowing garbs and curvy ornaments.

Famous Artists

Alfons Maria Mucha (1860-1939): Visual artist

In English and French better known as
Alphonse Mucha, this artist is maybe the most famous representative of the Art Nouveau style. He was painter, illustrator, graphic designer and poster artist at once.

 File:Alfons Mucha - F. Champenois Imprimeur-Éditeur.jpg

"F. Champenois Imprimeur-Editeur"


Gustav Klimt (1862-1918): Painter

Klimt was one of the most important representatives of the Secession. One of his best known paintings is "Der Kuss" (The Kiss), which was painted from 1907 to 1908.

Gustav Klimt 016.jpg

"Der Kuss"


Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926): Architect

A famous spanish architect, who is famous for his many Modernisme buildings in Barcelona, like the Sagrada Família, Casa Milá or Par Güell. Construction of the Sagrada Famíla, a church of enourmous dimensions, was started in 1882 and is still not finished today.

I was walking by the sea with a balloon tied to my hand, it was floating high above my head. After a while I got hungry so I went to a restaurant, the ballon was over me the whole time, while I ate. At another table there was a family with children. The kids had these toy guns that shot small plastic balls and they popped my ballon with them. I got up and was about to go to their table when a waiter ran up to me, but I told him that I would pay for my food and the families. Then I went back to my table. But in the end it was the family with the kids who paid for my dinner, so I could go back and buy another ballon. 

So what did we learn from this story?
a) don't kill balloons
b) go to the sea if you want a free meal
c) somehing else! (write it in the comments)
