Work With The Best
As a Digital Artist our world of creativity comes with a wide variety of tools at our disposal. Here you will find a list of tutorials that will help you with your Digital Art. Whether it's with backgrounds, details, or just brushes.
Why Should I use Tutorials For My Digital Art?
Digital Art is becoming increasingly popular for artists transitioning from traditional art to another medium. It's a medium that has a wide variety of options available to every artist out there and that's why it's so appealing ( among other long listed reasons )! Tutorials are essential but how do you know which one to choose?
Who's The Artist? This might seem like a silly question but it's important to look at the artist in which the tutorial is created from. Does their tutorials exhibit an array of skill that will be helpful to you? Is it clear and concise? Does examples of their own art display

How To Improve Your ArtI was going to call this 'how to become a better artist', but then I realized, there is no such thing as a 'better artist'. If you are an artist, you are the best artist you can be - your art can always ALWAYS improve, but you are already and always will be the best artist you can be. Remembering those two facts is the most important thing you can do.How To Improve Your Art4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But other than that, find someone to be excited about art with! They don't have to be an artist themselves, they just have to be able to get excited about art. Having someone who'll always be around to listen to your ideas, even if they don't contribute anything, is HUGELY helpful to keep you motivated. I've found that having someone for me to bounce ideas off of, or even just someone to explain my stories to, is my favourite thing in the world and almost always leads to me discovering new things about my stories and characters.
And now for the list of links you all were waiting for!
Basic HTML Formatting GuideIntroductionBasic HTML Formatting Guide2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
HTML is a markup language used to create web pages. It primarily consists of content placed between named tags that define the layout or style of that content.
Is it just me or does trying to explain HTML and what it does always seem to make it sound more complicated than it actually is? Very simply, HTML is the building blocks of the web. With it you can create a web page right from the foundations of the layout to the finishing touches of style. Don't get me wrong, it is a fairly involved topic but it really is quite simple to pick up the basics.
What I'll be helping you with here is the formatting aspect of HTML. These are the things that add colour to your page and make your font fancy.
Below you will find a number of examples of HTML formatting that you can use to style your own web pages, dA profiles and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also writ

I have 2 notes and a comment or two asking how I get movie colors. So, instead of repeating myself, I figured I'd just make a journal about it. To share with everyone all at once! This can be a long one.... so bare with me.
THIS IS ALL THE RESULT OF MY PERSONAL PRACTICE AND OBSERVATIONS OF THE LION KING STYLE AND FILM. These methods and observations may vary from your own observations, just do some trial and error. and good luck to it!
This could also possibly work for any other animal character you want to create. Color tone wise. not just for TLK
Some of the tips here can be obtained by certain digital art programs. I am personally familiar with Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop Elements 4. Anything else?

Worldbuilding and Your WritingIt's probably one of the most basic tasks of writing. Some of us take our time and carefully plan and plot every aspect of the world we're writing in. Others figure out the basics and jump right into the story. Like most aspects of writing, it comes down to what's comfortable for you, as a writer. But, if you're writing prose, you have to do a little bit of worldbuilding.Worldbuilding and Your Writing5 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
What is Worldbuilding?
Seems like the question of the hour. Everyone's talking about it. Some writers are making a big deal about it, while others say they don't do any at all. Worldbuilding is as simple as creating the world in which you're writing. How much worldbuilding you do is up to you.
How much should I build?
Remember, that no matter what, you'll always know more about your world than you'll ever write. It's not a bad thing; in fact, it should make your story stronger. The amount of building you do depends on the typ

Tuesday Tips: Water ColorsAnyone who has tried to use water colors knows that these paints seem to have a mind of their own. Especially for some one like me who started with Digital Art and solid paints (oils and acrylics anyone?) This can be hard to navigate. So these are some tips that helped me get started in no particular order. Lets begin shall we!Tuesday Tips: Water Colors7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Plan: This applies to anything you do but it more true for watercolors! Like I mentioned water colors seem to have a mind of their own. Moreover, they don't have whites as a way of undoing. So the best way to tackle this is to plan your coloring scheme from before. NO! I don't mean you need to plan every stroke. However, knowing what is the effect you want and how you plan to achieve it can you save you tonnes of agony.
KISS (Keep it simple silly): This comes off the from the previous point. If you keep things simple planning will be a lot more simple. Additionally, most water colors look beautiful without super

I have already created a tutorial showing how I made many of my customized avatars - you can check it here - but since it's very old, I decided to create a new onel. : )
It is big, since I tried to put as many information as possible.
Also, bare in mind that this tutorial is explained in a simple way, so even beginners and newbies will understand it.
I hope it will help!

This step is for the new deviants that are still not used to deviantART mechanics.

SIN #8 INCORRECT FLIGHT FEATHER STACKING

Best video resources for digital artistsLearning the theory without any practice is incredibly pointless when it comes to art. No book, no lecture and no video will ever teach you how to paint if you won't find the time for creating something yourself.Best video resources for digital artists2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
On the other hand, doing everything alone and without any instructions is the longest and hardest way of achieving anything. What's worse it doesn't guarantee you success.
Through the last couple of years I've been painting, I've learned that the best way for me to learn to paint is to copy techniques of people who know what they're doing. There's no better way doing it than watching videos with commentaries. That's why today I thought I'd share with you some great lectures, tutorials and demos I've found on youtube.

i've seen many people turn down photoshop for sai because sai has better blending and blurring options
this is true! sai also has the stabilizer thingy which is just heaven.... which ps of course doesn't have
many people who try ps then, can't seem to properly blur stuff because ;
1- it's too time consuming
2- they use the blur tool
uhh but here's a trick i learned from my brother that enables you to blend stuff sUPER SMOOTHLY with the smudge tool!

Anniversary CONTEST! **CLOSED**The contest is now CLOSED to new entries!! I will be sending notes to the judges and voting will be completed by Saturday, July 19th! Stay tuned for the winners!Anniversary CONTEST! **CLOSED**1 year ago in Personal More Like This
After a while of thinking, I finally decided to make another contest.
Jake and I's two year anniversary is coming up, and I came up with a cute little idea. I'm going to need your help to carry it out, though!
The theme of this contest is, if it wasn't obvious before, love!
Draw Krissi and Veridicus together. Seems simple enough, right? You can portray love in many different ways. Be creative! It can be tough love, romantic love, etc. If you're unsure if your idea portrays the theme, don't be afraid to ask me before you begin drawing it! I most likely will not say no, though.
Your drawing MUST include both Krissi AND Veridicus. It will not count as an entry if they are both not in the drawing!

PE: The Impact of Color1. - WHAT IS COLOR?PE: The Impact of Color3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Color is the aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by them, as received by the human eye and processed by the human brain. It is a function of light and biology, not an exact science, no two people can see it exactly the same.
The human eye and brain together translate light into color. Light receptors within the eye transmit messages to the brain, which produces the familiar sensations of color. Newton observed that color is not inherent in objects. Rather, the surface of an object reflects some colors and absorbs all the others. We perceive only the reflected colors. Thus, red is not "in" an apple. The surface of the apple is reflecting the wavelengths we see as red and absorbing all the rest. An object appears white when it reflects all wavelengths and black when it absorbs them all.
"Colors are the deeds of light, its deeds and sufferings."
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

There are a couple of updates that need to be considered and taken into view by everyone.
Assignments are now required!! This means that you will be required to turn in all assignments created by your leader, and will be given three chances to turn in assignments, unless you have a hiatus, in which case you do not have to complete it.
There will usually be a penalty assignment for anyone who didn't turn it in, determined by your leader, as will as a strike added to your record. This system will restart every year, and your slate will be whipped clean.
There are also new rules for joining!
We recommend that everyone read through the rules, as they have been updated!!!
