Contest Announcement~I am officially announcing my first contest, i have planned this for a month and finally i can officially announce itContest Announcement~1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how.
here are images of them for inspiration
Octopus Accessories - art thieveshttp://www.octopus-store.ro/Octopus Accessories - art thieves5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
this is their store. They are Octopus Acessories
This is their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OctopusAccessories
They had my drawings printed and were selling necklaces with them. They also lied to me that they did not steal them and took them from from some deviant who supposedly stole them first.
They sent me this link to this deviant :iconxyqueen: but the drawings that belong to me were submitted 12 hours ago. So obviously this couldn't be true since Nijikon was over 12 hours ago, and they had them for sale since 3 days ago.
This girl is so shameless, she lied to my face! She made me feel bad about calling her out and "making a scene" in front of her booth. OMG! And i believed her, i could have had her kicked out of the convention on the spot! She made me apologize for making a scene in front of her booth So she stole my art, and i was the one who apologized.
THAT. IS. WRONG.
Wow, if thievery was a game, she would be the final boss
A Brief Discussion About Tonal ContrastTraditional Art WeekA Brief Discussion About Tonal Contrast2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
In last Traditional Week, we talked about the elements which if you ignore can destroy your painting and all your hardwork.
What Ruins A Painting?
Contrast and Values were one main element that either can make your works fruitful or ruin it. It needs to be discussed more broadly as a lot of new artists have trouble to establish a good tonal contrast. Result? Despite their brilliant artistic skills, the picture does not pop up! It looks dull, muted. That is not the fault of the drawing or skills, it's the lack of observation and understanding lights.
Contrast is the difference between two values which helps you to dis
The Unknown Artist ProgramHello members,The Unknown Artist Program3 months ago in Personal More Like This
When I took over this group I promised to maintain the original idea of the group. Which is to help artists who are in the shadows and not quite within the spotlight yet, artists who feel they do not receive enough recognition for the work and effort they put into their wonderful pieces. So with that, here is a program to help all of you wonderful members. Anyone apart of this group, may comment on this journal with either a piece or many pieces that they feel doesn't get enough recognition. It doesn't matter what skill level, or how long you've been in the art world. If you've created it and would like recognition then comment below linking to the piece(s).
When you comment, write a little about the piece perhaps how it came to be, the inspiration behind it. Maybe a little something about you! Not only can this program act as a platform to get your art out there, but friends can surely be made in the process.

About originality in artMany deviants around here seem to think that if they have seen a type of work before then that means it's not original. So by that reasoning, if someone comes up with the weirdest thing in the world, than that makes him original and therefore better than the one that drew something that has been done before.About originality in art2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'd like you to consider this for a while. Humanity has been around for thousands of years, almost anything an artist might think of drawing, has been drawn before. If an artist draws a portrait of a girl, that is so "unoriginal" you can literally find hundreds of thousands of such drawings.
Then should an artist stay away from drawing portraits?
Is an artist's work less valuable?
Consider this for a moment. There was an artist (if i can even call him that), that pooped in a box, and made an art show about it. He was definitely original and his work is very valued. There was another artist who put a shark in a tank and sold it for $12.000.000 dollars, (yes it's

One thing that I've noticed coming into a school is that I love critiquing peoples stuff?? Also, nobody critiques seriously anymore here?? Let's get some critiques going >: D
I'm opening up this for you guys, since I want to not only help others improve, but to critically look at somebody art and learn some things myself. When I just randomly critique, sometimes the artists don't enjoy that?? So I wanted to ask who WANTED to be critiqued, and help with what I can do >:3
How can I join?
Comment with a deviation below, something that you would like me to write on. HAVE CRITIQUES OPEN ON THAT PICTURE so I may put in my stars and such. I'll pick the ones that I think I can speak about well and give you a good critique.

Art StylesThis is not some journal about personal woes. I just want to talk briefly about some attitudes towards realistic (and other) art styles that I've come across that... It just kinda seriously bothers me that people think that way about me and other people and themselves.Art Styles9 months ago in Personal More Like This
So here it is; Drawing realism does not equal elitism.
I don't draw realistically because I think it makes me better than other people and I don't know anyone else who does either. I draw realistically because I like drawing that way. Because I'm very particular about details and drawing little tiny details makes me ridiculously happy. It's just how I like to draw.
It doesn't make me better than you or anyone else.
I don't think any of you are below me because you draw anime/manga or cartoon styles. More power to you because I tend to struggle with it, honestly.
And if we all drew the exact same way, all our art would be the same and it would be boring as hell.

About Magic Mirror:
This is a very personal piece for me. Blue Pact has been the focus of my creativity for more than 8 years, and is a story I have only just begun to try and convey to the world.
Seshiru, my main character is one of the most important things in my life, and I've tried to show why by making this video. When I was 12, I began hiding what I really wanted in life, which was to draw and tell stories through my sketches and paintings, and to make prints and posters of the characters I made for everyone to enjoy.
Seshiru is a tangent from the me I became growing up. She is almost the exact opposite of everything I do. Where I would run away and pretend I am okay, she would lose her temper and fight back. Where I would tell someone a sweet lie because I wanted to stay friends, she would tell them the hard truth to see if they really were her friend. Where I would worry about what I was wearing when I went out and was timid to even buy clothes, she would wear whatever t
Does talent exist?I know many people have different opinions about this. And here's what i think of it and why. I'll just answer the journal question up front, I think talent does not exist. And here's why:Does talent exist?7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Let's start with he question, what is talent? It's this magical thing that makes some people learn faster and develop faster than others in different fields. Let's take art for example, there are 2 different artists, both start at the same time to learn a concept and one learns faster than the other. But few people have stopped to ask themselves why that is? Is it talent, or is it something else?
Let me tell you a story about a guy who started an experiment to see if talent exists. He posted an add where he stated he's looking for a wife that will agree to marry him and let him test their children in this experiment. And they made 3 girls. The guy taught them all how to lay chess from a very early age, and lo and behold all of them became grandmasters in chess. This story is real, the guy is

Art and dealing with struggleDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and dealing with struggle7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There is a lot of stress and struggle in our everyday lives. Anxiety, resistence, doubts, self-loathing.. but how to deal with them and make the art we are really excited about?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
People strive so much for the easiest ways to achieve something, the fastest way to get to results, to get the reward without actually doing things .. but, as soon as there needs to be a hard work put in the process, as soon as it happens to be more difficult along the way, we tend to get frustrated and give up, because of not seeing instant results right away.
It takes time.
Whether it's developing new skill, working on new project - meaningful things so often take a lot of patience in order to make them. Overnight success happens so rarely and mostly for those, who work extremely hard on their cr
