Draw my little bros characters-ENDDraw my little bros characters-END9 months ago in Personal More Like This
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
him and he'll love every one of them and probably will talk about it for weeks.
It's all going to be worth it because I know he'll get his silly little grin on his face
and wont be able to control himself.
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
swell picture of that character and enter it!
IT HAS TO BE APPROPRIATE. This is for an eight year old so use your head
and it'll be easy.
You can have three entries. Though if you're doing three you need to make each pi

Have you ever thought...
That if in the next five minutes your life was taken from you,
what would you have left behind?
What would you be remembered as?
A nice person?
An angry person?
A charitable person?
An inspiring person?
Would people miss you in your absence?
Or would they sit in silence.
Would you have unfinished business here?
What would your family friends/friends find in your belongings?
What person would they see?
If they read your diary,
your social websites,
who would they see?
Would you have dreams and aspirations that were cut short?
Would you have left behind too many questions about yourself,
What would the moments before your passing have been like?
Would your last words have been bitter?
Would you have forgotten to tell your parents you love them?
Would you have, for one moment,
been angry at your sibling?

Why are we this wayThing is, i am absolutely frustrated with humans.Why are we this way9 months 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
throw me off a cliff---throw me off a cliff---2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
because I am emotional;
it’s time to give thanks. (and it is long overdue anyway)
this is gonna be a long blather please read at your own risk.
I just wanted to express my immense gratitude to everyone on here. All my watchers, everyone who has read my work, everyone who has supported my writing, allowed me to improve it, and make me feel so good about writing.
It’s just amazing to see that there are so many people who like my writing- I never expected to write fanfiction, I never expected to write and to meet so many wonderful and talented people. I never expected anyone to even like my writing, and thinking about it, makes me feel so strange.
Fulfilled, I guess?
Since I never expected it, I feel complete, when I see the things that I can accomplish with my writing. I know that I’m far from being the best, or even good for that matter, but I will continue writing, and sharpening the skills that I have honed over the years.
Thank you to ever

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 .

FAQ&A: "Which Wacom should I get?"I have about 60 notes in my inbox right now asking this question. I've answered it so many times for other people before, I really don't really know why I haven't done a Q&A entry about it.

WHICH WACOM TABLET SHOULD I BUY?Not to sound snarky, but I thought that little article I wrote about Wacom Tablets would've alleviated some of the confusion new digital artists were having, and answer their burning questions. Unfortunately it has seemed to only caused more questions!
Many of you have asked me which model Wacom you should get versus another. An intuos medium vs large, an intuos vs a cintiq, a cintiq vs a tablet PC, etc. To answer this as truthfully as I can --- I can't honestly tell you which one is better. This is

Know your origin: Some history of our craftYou know, as digital artists we have some amazing tools available to us to help bring our imaginations to life.Know your origin: Some history of our craft3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The latest graphic tablets (now affordable for most anyone,) matched with the latest high-definition screens (displaying billions of colors,) connected to the latest computers (whose size are measured in inches and not feet,) all to render work near instantaneously. It's hard to imagine that with what we have today, publishers and artists were using these same types of devices as much as 40 years ago to set type, scan images, or even draw pictures.
So if you were an artist in the late 1970's, what would it have been like?
Well, click here (or above) to watch a video to get a bit of an idea.
If that's anything to go by, straight-up drawing was still a little out of reach. But you could scan drawings, save them, view them on a screen, scale them,

Hints and Tips #1Hello and welcome to the first instalments of 'Hints & Tips' andHints and Tips #11 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I hope these short and simple Tutorials will help boost and
inspire YOU to learn and create your own works in the many
forms and mediums that you may work in.
SO... The first Hint/Tip is -
FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)
1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat
=to show that it doesn't remove paint, here is the finished piece=
I hope this helps
To all of youHello! This is Chaico.To all of you2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I receive so many reaction for my work "The Lion King" in this several days.
And I get many comments at dA,also messages from Tumblr.
I'm sorry I can't return messages each other,
I think I must say appreciation and reply for criticism in this place many people can see.
In this time, I remain this sentence in Japanese for pass along my own thought.
To tell you the true,this English sentence write by my older sister and I.
I hope to communicate my opinion for everyone.
Now, as mentioned, I receive some suggestion for this illustration "http://chacckco.deviantart.com/art/HAKUNA-MATATA-363176196".
They said "Why this characters are white? This is a story of Africa" and "racist " .
This suggestion are discussed in some place I can't see that.
I am very sad that people recognize "the work" is discriminatory, because I did not intend to do it.
In the fact, I have got same opinion when I draw other work of "The Lion King " before,therefore I hesitate draw it again
