Color Inspiration - RedHello again!Color Inspiration - Red2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the first of a 7 part journal about colors. I'll take the opportunity of the 7 Days Color Challenge to share some material I've been gathering recently.
Hope you find this interesting for either the challenge or future projects. ^_^
Red has more personal associations than any other color. Recognized as a stimulant, red is inherently exciting. Red draws attention, so a keen use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element. (shout out to extroverted people, that's your color (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*)
Red is particularly interesting because it's on both ends of the emotional spectrum. On one end there's passion and love and on the other there's danger, fear and anger. I'm wondering which of these emotions you most associate with the color red. ^^
It's the first color bab
How to beat procrastination (part 2)Most of the excuses for not drawing is lacking of ideas. On part 1 of this journal I explained why I find it useful to keep a notebook with you, and to write down your ideas whenever possible.How to beat procrastination (part 2)8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This second part is about developing the habit of drawing. Hope you find it useful!
Create the habit of drawing
First thing to know about creating new habits is that it works kinda like inertia law:
"An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion."
Which means that the more you postpone your drawings the more you'll feel like delaying them. This procrastination abyss can be endless. For instance, I didn't draw anything in 2013 until the end of August when I bought my fi

By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?
How to beat procrastination (part 1)As I said on a previous submission, I'm planning to make some tutorials on the upcoming December. Before that, however, I feel like I can help on another subject, which comes before even starting your drawing: Procrastination. I mean, procrastination towards your own drawings.How to beat procrastination (part 1)8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
If you're not familiar with this word:
pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|
"the action of delaying or postponing something."
Why am I talking about this?
Well, a year ago I used to be a professional procrastinator. I've imposed the 365 Days of Doodles challenge to myself for this particular reason.
While procrastination is to some degree a natural phenomenon and can’t be completely eradicated, you can use the following strategies to get in the habit of getting drawings done.
Mind that these are not golden rules or such, just strategies that work fo

New Netflix's Series Should Be A New 'Avatar show'From Paul Tassi Verified:New Netflix's Series Should Be A New 'Avatar show'7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’m a week or so behind the times, but I’ve finally caught up with the final season of Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, including its absolutely sublime finale that fans will be talking about for years to come.
In it (spoilers), there are many fantastic moments, including Korra essentially forgiving the big-bad villain of the entire season, going out of her way to save her life instead of letting her be consumed by the superweapon she built.
But past that, the most talked-about portion was the final two minutes, where Korra and Asami, both ex-girlfriends of presumed romantic lead Mako, decide to take a vacation together into the Spirit World. The two walk hand into the portal of light and the final shot is them facing each other, practically nose to nose in a way that mirrors both the nuptial pose of two characters who got married minutes earlier in the episode, and the end of The Last Airbender which had Aang and Kitara kissing.

There are countless tutorials on drawing, painting or anything else you fancy to create, but how about taking care of the finished picture? Here you might find a bunch of useful tips on how to take care of your drawing (taking care of paintings will be explained another time).
It's usually similar for the most kinds of media you might have used - as long as it's waterproof, fixative or hair spray will be enough. Some specific tools, such as ballpoint pens or some kinds of non-waterproof ink, might smudge during spraying and even more afterwards, so it's not recommended to save them that way.
Fixative or hair spray?
There are many opinions on both of them. Here are, however the facts: fixative is much more expensive than hair spray, it usually stinks awfully, and is considered the "pro" way to preserve the picture (uh oh). H

My deviantART StoryMy deviant story is not one of the longest, I'm here since January 24th. As you may already know, I have started 2014 with the objective of drawing 1 doodle a day. For the whole year. (:My deviantART Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
My first deviation, doodle #1
Everything started as a very personal project on my Instagram account. I admit I was a bit afraid of joining dA and submitting my project in here.
In part, that was because I don't think I can express myself in English as well as I can with my main language - which is Portuguese. Another reason was that I came across deviantART through very famous deviations so I used to see dA as a fancy art gallery, not as a digital community.
guess which artwork first got me into dA? Yep, Yuumei's Countdown.
I was on high school when I discovered this site. It took me some time to figure out how deviantART really worked.

Added your questions! Ask me more and i will update this more.
Hey guys! Here's my FAQ! Of course, most of you already know all there is to know about my artworks, but this is gonna be an easy way to link people to all questions related to my art, and what's better, you ask the questions! XD Thats right, I have filled some generic stuff here so that's a place to start, but I would love it if you do the asking and I update the FAQ accordingly xDD
Rules for asking questions:
Please refrain from asking me questions about personal life that are too personal. For example, What is your favorite color? is a valid question, whereas Where exactly do you live? is not xD I just like to keep my personal stuff personal.
Dont ask me for tutorials. ah, well, the simple answer is, I will if I can. And surely, in the future, I will. ^_^

For a ridiculously huge amount of gold this is now possible.
The Katt will be carefully packed and safely delivered to your doorstep. The box can be used to create a house for it to sleep in.
The Katt is a shy, sensitive creature that comes out at night to hunt.
It originates from the deep, dark forests up north where it lived in secret far away from humanity, and is the only now existing individual of this rare breed.
It's generally friendly unless it feels threatened and often goes well together with other animals. But it is important to always approach the Katt with caution, as it's easily startled and prone to flee.
The Katt has many special needs. Only an experienced owner will be able to care for it properly.
To earn its trust and keep its level of happiness high a few things are needed, such as

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!

Why I dislike The Fault in Our StarsSo, I’ve been getting a lot of asks over the last few months asking why I strongly dislike TFIOS by John Green as much as I do. And for the most part, all the recent askers have been surprisingly polite, considering the more aggressive ones I’ve received in the past on the subject. Anyway, I’ve answered a bunch of them separately, but I’ve decided to condense all of my theories, opinions and arguments into one succinct post.Why I dislike The Fault in Our Stars1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I'll be blunt about my feelings on the book by copying and pasting my response to a recent ask upon the nature of my dislike.
“The story is incredibly formulaic and unrealistic, the dialogue is pretentious and stilted, cancer is romanticized and I fucking hate that arrogant ass Augustus waters with a burning passion. I liked Hazel and Isaac all right, and I guess his writing is good, but the cardboard cut-out nature of all the other characters and the complete lack of realism heap
Collection: Dia de Los MuertosCollection: Dia de Los Muertos9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Dia de los Muertos
“Day of the Dead” is not the “Latin American Halloween.” On Dia de los Muertos, Mexican families visit the spirits of their dead in the cemeteries where they rest. They bring food and other gifts as part of a happy celebration of departed loved ones. Halloween originated with the fear of the sprits of the dead visiting the living so food was offered as bribery for the spirits to do no harm. It was a scary once–a–year intersection of the world of the living with the world of the dead. Day of the Dead continues to be a celebration as antidote to mourning the passing over of loved ones. It is about the ind
