ELLO, and welcome to this contest dedicated to my wonderful little 8 year old
bro who is growing in the art of art. This is going to be fun and my little brther
has no idea I'm doing this. So when I'm done I'm going to show all the entries to

It's all going to be worth it because I know he'll get his silly little grin on his face

The theme for this contest as you probably already know, is drawing my little
bros characters. There are three to chose from and all you have to do is make a

The grand city of Taitle, once bustling with life and thought and steam-powered inventions, stands deserted save for the stray passing inventor salvaging scrap metal from its workings and a stubborn old man http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb2/Sins-of-Angels/Oldmansketch.jpg who has lived on the same plot of land his ancestors have all his life. He didnt mind the old abandoned buildings, the winding Victorian architecture that was crumbling in places, or the almost rhythmic release of steam from street vents. No one knew where the vents went, or why they were there, or even how to properly begin to repair the citys maze of architecture to make it living again, but the vents are there, leading to nowhere, and the city is there, and had, at one point, worked for the people in it. All it works for now, o
Why are we this wayThing is, i am absolutely frustrated with humans.Why are we this way3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Every single day im seeing constant injustice, constant racism, constant MISUNDERSTANDING.
It annoys me to no end. How in the world can you judge a culture, a race, a another whole REGION of human beings by a few terribly researched and portrayed news anchors? How in the WORLD can you hate an entire culture, race, ethnicity or judge an entire chunk of people without knowing them at all?
Since when have we gotten to the point, that we don't even give them a chance? That we've dehumanized those who are different from us.
Nobody said you had to agree; you were born obviously in a different mini world of your own. But these people have families, homes, friends, they joke with eachother, they play catch with their child, they smile at their grandmother, they eat breakfast, they watch the sunrise.
We are all human, and we all do almost the same things every single day. We are NOT that different, and if

This group focuses on encouraging artists.
As I have to have a major operation next week and would prefer not to temporarily close the group, :icondboland2012:, one of our talented members, has very kindly volunteered to take over in my absence, which I appreciate more than words can say and I am sure the members will appreciate it too.
Due to a very persuasive member, I have opened a new folder for 3D objects, which do not require a background, over painting or textures.
Another feature of amazing artworks from our very talented members, which I hope everyone will enjoy as much as I do and be inspired by. Our membership is steadily growing and is now approaching 3,640 and our galleries as I always write, contain even more amazing and inspirational art, which is well worth viewing as well as adding to your .
The primary focus of this group continues to be digital painting and digital drawing, which should be submi

Exposure, Getting Better, & Having the ChopsEXPOSURE & GETTING BETTER AT WHAT YOU DOExposure, Getting Better, & Having the Chops2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm only going off of my own personal experiences talking about these few things. (And I'm not specifically talking about ONLY dA here.) So take it with as many grains of salt as you can.
I've recently been asked questions like "How do I get people to see my work?", "Why am I not receiving commission inquiries?", "Why isn't anyone following my work?", "What can I do to get better?". Often, and I answered it before, the answer is as simple as this:
Create, as in, DRAW. PAINT. RENDER. SCULPT. You have to do develop a tolerance (or the obvious definition: LOVE) for creating if you want exposure and to get better. You have to LOVE the drawing or illustration that you HATE how it came out in the end. You have to ask yourself after every piece, what could I have done to do that differently. And you have to do this frequently.
Some folks come on the scene, post once or twice a week, and expect an audience to flock yo

:/....just a few thoughts on cosplay...SELLING STUFF http://kitsunesqueak.deviantart.com/journal/Selling-UPDATE-298061952:/....just a few thoughts on cosplay...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This post is brought on by a complaint I saw recently on facebook, and also by stuff in general.
I for one, cosplay because I love it. I might not agree with people that cosplay to achieve fame (seriously...what fame?), but you know, that's what people do for themselves and it's not my business.
I am human and criticize other cosplay mentally (or with my friends). I won't deny that. What is driving me crazy is people that say others shouldn't criticize peoples' cosplays and then turn around and criticize other people for buying cosplay, or cosplaying a character just because they're hot without knowing the character.
Yes, you can disagree. That's normal. But I find it terribly hypocritical to say others can't criticize and then go off and criticize somebody else. You say you think cosplayers that buy their cosplay or just want to look pretty are posers? Fine. That's your viewpoint. I d

I'll always answer any further questions. (just note me or leave a comment)
But I just wanna refer you guys to some previous writings from other artists I have already posted earlier, and is still really good information if you've missed it.
Even if some of these are comics, I feel like most of the things stated are universal for most art-related jobs. Don't be put off just because you might not be interested in doing comics.
