A Must Read!Guys, i just want to share these journals with you (created by: Suzanne-Helmigh) whether you're a beginner, a student, or a professional artist, these are good articles, and covered a lot of good points, not only for becoming a good artist but things to be aware about as an artist. If you have a moment, have a look! I've shared one about the myth of concept art on my art blog, but i didn't want to leave out the rest of it. So instead i've decided to share these on here, since i have more watchers here than on my art blog. I hope it will help you in some way. Big thanks to Suzanne for making these!A Must Read!10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Angelo Sotira (aka spyed)
Co-Founder & CEO of deviantART
I'm closing in on 11 years of running deviantART and if there's one thing I know for sure it's that when you guys are right, you're right. And that at dA, ego and our own sense of self worth comes second to how much we care about deviantART and our collective love of what we represent together. Prepare for me to be humiliated.
Before we get started, here's to fulfilling my promise to publishing the deviations made by akreon and vesner to the entire community for all to see, no matter what they were, after we invited them to get an inside look in to deviantART HQ and our operations. and maybe another cuz they're kinda scathing!
Some of you are wondering what the heck I'm talking about. So let's skip to the punch line and then talk about how we got here:

About IsbjorgAbout Isbjorg4 years ago in Personal More Like This
FULL NAME: Isbjörg.
MEANING: Isbjörg's mother, Esmerelle, met her real father somewhere in the Icewind Dale. Probably, in memory of that bitterly cold place which meant so much to her she gave such "glacial" name to her daughter. "Is" - Ice, "Björg" - defense. Her foster father and others called her "Björg". And only Bishop calls her "Is" because it makes her angry
NICKNAME: Actually, no. But sometimes Bish calls her "Milady" .
ACTUAL AGE: 27-29 years old(means about 22 for half-elves).
SEXUAL PREFERENCE: heterosexual (but she did an exception for the girl once ).
MARITAL STATUS: She has(had) a "boyfriend". Yes, that stubbled, gloomy ranger. Can't say more about he

Exercise 16:The Skillful HuntsmanTHIS WEEK's EXERCISE POST: THE FULL POST AND DETAILSExercise 16:The Skillful Huntsman1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The first exercise of 2014 is creating a concept of the Skillful Huntsman. This is based on a study first done from Scott Robertson and his book of the same name. The goal is to push students still learning and refining their skills farther and more into a streamline mindset of creating concept art!
EXERCISE: Create your own interpretation concept art of the character: the Huntsman.
GOAL: To challenge yourself and work on a pre-given concept similar to a concept artist working in the industry.
As a concept artist you’re job is to take all the information given mixed with the inspiration of the story and the stored references you have gathered throughout your life to create some concept work! Sometimes (if not m

So...I'm getting tired of updating the list of links on each new set of folders.
As such, I'm going to make one complete, constantly updated directory here.
Feel free to make your requests here as well. Just leave me the name of the series and the character (they have to be chibi though, they fit better in the folders lol). I actually prefer to do sets as opposed to singles, so don't be shy in requesting more than one. I reserve the right to decline (though I likely won't without good reason.) I can't guarantee they'll get done quickly or at all, but no harm in trying, eh?

you get a theme and got 30 minutes to paint it
videos aren't necessary but i like making them so...
here is the 30 minute skeleton lord XD
i actually do recommend exercises like these for any would be professional, they help you adjust and balance the speed and quality aspects of your workflow. you won't always get the best results but you will start thinking in new ways while painting
so give it a try if you want to
and yeah...i still havent resolved the microphone issue :/

Understanding your camera's exposure settingsIn this post I’ll be discussing Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. The three camera settings that control “exposure” – the brightness of your photo.Understanding your camera's exposure settings1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There are three settings on your camera that control exposure: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO.
The Aperture is the thing that opens when you press the shutter button on your camera. The ‘aperture setting’ determines how big the opening will be. It's measured in f-stops. The smaller the f-stop number the larger the opening, and hence the more light that gets in.
The Shutter Speed determines how long the aperture stays open. Shutter speed is measured in fractions of a second. The faster the shutter, the less light that gets in.
The ISO setting determines the camera’s sensitivity to light. Think of it as a light amplifier. The higher the ISO, the brighter the image.
In most cases you will want fast shutter speeds (to eliminate blur), low ISO (to reduce noise), and an appropriate aperture setting to g

Folk and Fairy TalesI saw three ads today for Disney's 'Maleficent,' and it got me reminiscing about all the folk/fairytales I read through high school, and trying to figure out what in the hell a dude with owl eyes, lustful monks, and all sorts of generally stupid, greedy, or horny people were supposed to be teaching me about life. I mean...don't sew? Invite evil fairies to your birthday? Don't let a stranger impregnate you while you're comatose?

Fortunately, one of the first things I learned in my Ancient Myth class was that, regardless of Levi-Strauss' memetics, sometimes a story is just a story. And stories are meant to be entertaining.

Hate me all you want but this is going to be an honest rundown of opinions and observations on the Michael Brown situation as well as what is going on in Ferguson.
NOTE: Most if not all of this is going off of evidence that has been presented to the public, as for that which hasn't... I can't speak with that in mind. So, depending on the authenticity of the information and evidence we've been given as the public, some of this information could be wrong or even a little off base. Please, understand this and read with that in mind.
EDIT: Also -- There are many different viewpoints on this matter and it seems in most cases there's a persistent disagreement on who was right and who was wrong. My view on this is a direct reflection of the information granted to the public about this case thus far; which is not much. Perhaps this would g
