My dA story[Wow, it's been ages since I wrote a journal, so I thought this little bandwagon would be the perfect opportunity to do that.]My dA story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I joined dA in 2006. I was 16, a sophomore in high school.
A friend of mine suggested it offhand, and I had been posting my first ventures into digital art on forums for a private server of Ragnorok Online, so I thought to myself "why not! Let's see what this is all about."
I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but the moment I first started posting, I could feel something change. Having people interested in your art and stories was so motivating; it was unlike anything I had ever had in person with family or friends. Up until I joined, I'd never really taken my art seriously.
I was on here for a year before I started concepting SalaDays, a slapstick story about supernatural teens in school. A lot of people showed interest, so I started up a webcomic (and even opened up
We need Growing Around background ArtistsSo, a new position on Growing Around has opened up: Background artists. These guys translate the storyboards into the visual style of the children's storybook come to life for the final product. They basically have to translate :iconNayolfa:'s style to :iconMissyMeghan3:'s style. If you're going to have this job, you're going to have to do this a lot, so you're going to have a lot of tests.We need Growing Around background Artists1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, you need to do the background work for these scenes, from this gallery: http://nayolfa.deviantart.com/gallery/50601162/Pilot-Storyboard. Make the houses a bit different, use a bit of your own style, the children's storybook come to life is kind of the general feeling that we're going for.
Any questions ask :iconNayolfa:

Synesthesia / Syn UpdateThis was originally for tumblr but i'm sharing it here as wellSynesthesia / Syn Update9 months ago in Personal More Like This
So some of you might know I have a tag for a personal project / story called “Synesthesia.” First of all I would like to confirm that the story is no longer called Synesthesia, it’s going to just be called “Syn.” The reasoning is because I originally was going to somehow try to incorporate the actual condition synesthesia into the story, but in the end it didn’t work out and in order to make the story make better sense I had to take it out. However, its nickname “syn” will be the title as of now because it applies better to the story and doesn’t lose it’s previous name entirely. So it’s not like we’d have to adjust to a story with a brand new, completely different title. I still have a tag for synesthesia… but I will leave most of the older posts under that tag. Starting from now I will just tag syn-related posts as syn, and I will be removing the

I dont believe in mentors, not all mentors are qualified to teach, they can misguide you sometimes. If you have a mentor it can turn you into his clone, i had seen tons of great artists that their technique wasnt good but they were more unique and after having mentor, their style lose uniqueness. Because be honest, we copy what we like, and usually we ask for mentors of people that style will enjoy the most.
For example you go and learn to play guitar with Slash, you will master the guitar at rock, but you if you wanna learn country, Slash wont teach you that, your hands will have the skills but you will have to start country from zero, and country its your style.
Sooner or later the technique of the mentor will consume you. Because errors are the things that

Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?It seems there has been a recent explosion in DA users who are now using polymer clay as a medium for their deviations.Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To help out curious users who might be interested in what this medium is, how it works, or where they can get it I thought a NEWS article should be made. I shall also showcase some
deviations made with polymer clay. The data below is compiled from HanaClayWorks polymer clay FAQ and my own FAQ
What is polymer clay?
-Polymer clay is actually not clay at all. It is a form of plastic. (Specifically fine particles of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) suspended in plasticizer) The only reason it is called "clay" is because of it's clay like properties. It is a mold-able substance that can be cured in a normal oven (or toaster oven) and will retain it's shape and remain strong after baking.
Where can I buy Polymer clay?
-You can buy Polymer clay at craft stores like Michaels, AC Moore, Jo Ann Fab

Same as last time: your FURSONA or some animal holding a heart for her. (a cute heart, not the gross bloody one). If you already did one, send me that.
Please have it done ASAP, I'd really like for her to get it soon. This is very important to me ;n;
Please, feature this journal or pass it on. I want to give my mom full support through this. And if you're religious, please pray for her, send her strength. She needs it
So, thank you if you participate. Make sure you somehow get it to me.

Erik Grove writes for Bleeding Cool from ECCC in Seattle,
Every comic convention I’ve ever been to has had a “breaking into comics” panel. It’s a no-brainer. When you ask creators what question they are usually asked most, most say it’s “how did you break in?”I’ve been to several of these panels. It’s how I first met Rich Johnston actually (though I’m sure he doesn’t remember it) at NYCC when he was on a panel with C.B. Cebulski back before Bleeding Cool was a glimmer in his eye. [I have tried to block all such events from my mind - Rich] The truth is that a lot of fans(and some journalists) look at comics and think “I want to do that!” and search for a magic formula to accomplish it.

And here we go. Many of you came to complain Axsoris came back on my page/journal. Yes. It fuckin' came back. I know. And you know why they came back ? Because they said that malwares were the only reason to take it down.
So I'm gonna put this IP address again, so you could report this fucker here.
If you want to report them, it's for Copyright infringement. And because of pop-up adverts for pr0n. I bet they still contain viruses, but I'm not sure. And if there are adverts, they get money. They get money from your arts.
Well, I recommend you to follow this person who put down Axsoris the first time. Like this you'll have news directly from her. http://vixen525.deviantart.com/journal/Death-to-AxSoris-392654769

And I want to thank all the young bros who wanted to help her but couldn't because of the lack of money. They still showed a lot of sympathy for her, which was really great of them. Here, have a brofits, bros.

I bet you read this comic I posted minutes ago.
So I'm just doing this Journal because I had many messages from bros who wanted to get my main dA account. I have been thinking about this for years, considering it wouldn't be fair from me to leave without giving you any more information... I didn't want to share it because of this promise I did with my Bro, but now that time passed, well, I don't want to leave you behind. I'm still active on dA, but not on this account anymore. And I'm sorry about that. I know you like my PDP Fan Art, but I'm out of ideas and motivations. And time has passed, I left PDP fandom and now I'm just a huge fan of Cry.
And for those who are already going nuts : No. I won't deactivate my Stephano account. There are many people who took my art and posted it all over internet. That's why I keep up this account, so people would know the source of my art. And I had so much fun here I wouldn't have the strength to do it anyway. Too many good memories ar

the world is my home!I'm at a bit of a crossroads.the world is my home!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Let me give a little bit of explanation here.
I've done a fair amount of professional comic work. It's almost entirely by accident, which I realize is kind of a blessed situation, but happily, the one constant in my life as a "professional" has been a weird character I happened upon many moons ago: Gogo.
Which is awesome. I cannot lie. Gogo and the whole "Bomango" canon (such as it is) has been my sushi perfection (see: Jiro) for many these past years. I don't want to change the world; I just want to make a delicious dish. Some might see this as an obsession, some might see it as a sickness, even, others might not even care (why are you reading this, then? The world is on FIRE! Put your passions to that!) But for my part, I have come to terms with the idea that I'm a cook whose entree has attracted a few aesthetic stomachs. There are more and better artists out there with haute cuisine, but this sushi needs development.
Here is my life: I work 40-60
Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.For a lot of you it might be nothing new, but since a lot of you are either new on dA or not experienced with something like "strategies" to get views, comments and faves for their works i (your most favourite dA group guy :icongbk666: ) thought i write up a few hopefully useful hints for you.Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Upload as many drawings / photos etc. as you can. Some of you would argue now that it can be counterproductive if the deviations are not good, but i come to that point in #2
2. Join Groups. A Ton of them.. at least 15-25 . And submit your stuff to them on a regular base. BUT only the things you consider by yourself as "good" . The rest is for your gallery only, and interesting for those deviants who want to see sketches, WIP's etc.
Always care about the theme of the dA groups of course and about their rules. If you are not Alvin Lee, Artgerm or Genzoman or have over 100k views on your profile already and over 400-500 watchers at least you really need dA groups to g
