How to: Margin + PaddingFor this tutorial series I am explaining different elements you can create or modify with the help of CSS. The level of experience that is needed to be able to understand the tutorials can differ and will be in no order.How to: Margin + Padding2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
However I will try to explain the things as simple as possible. Upcoming questions should be left in a comment directly to this blog so that people with similar problems can look them up later as well.
The tutorial series is based on the gruze-structure of journals. If you are still using the old structure or have a journal installed that used it, things won’t work the same way like explained below.
For simple skins the old structure is fine, but the more features you add, the more I would recommend using the gruze-structure. You can look up the differences here: http://ginkgografix.deviantart.com/art/Old-vs-Gruze-Journals-112772369
It seems like a lot of people are struggling with the usage of margin and padding. In the end it doesn’t matter ho

After a lot of deliberation, OhSquishy and I have decided to make Arupa-Ka into a casual, publicly open group. It will keep it's "my-pace" environment and will be changed into a group for people with alpaca gijinkas/kemonomimis in a present AU to meet up, hang out, draw with and find roleplay partners.
Additionally, some major changes include:
- We will be moving all current applications into the "Character Archive" folder unless you request to be placed in the "Active Character" folder. Please comment below if you wish to stay as an active RPer in this group.
- At the same time, we will be removing the "*Skype Masterlist" and ask that any active members to resubmit their RP information to the "*Roleplay Masterlist".
- We will probably have no more mini-assignments and events, aside the random "art trade" events once in awhile and potential group RPs in the chatroom.

Pitfalls to Avoid and Tricks to Use while Naming People and Places
We've all been there. You're reading a pretty interesting piece of fantasy fiction, and a few paragraphs in you learn that the main villain's name is "Abraxas the Cruel, Lord of the Black Tower." You wince at the unoriginality, close the deviation, and move on to something more interesting. We've all been on the other side of things, too, with a detailed plot outline in hand, staring at a Word document that displays only a single line: "???? knew what he had to do--kill the president." We're sure that once we get that protagonist's name down, that perfect name, we'll be able to write the whole thing in one gush of brilliance, but all that's coming to mind are banal names like "John Everyman" or over-the-top ones like "Staff Sergeant Max Fightmaster".*

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

PE: Contrast in Digital ArtThis article aims to introduce different kinds of ‘contrast’ in digital art, although most of the following points can also be applied to other media as well.PE: Contrast in Digital Art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
(noun) - Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
1. Colours and Brightness
One of the first things to come to mind when we think of ‘contrast’ are colours contrasting with each other.
(The colours labelled as 'primary' are the primary colours in the RGB colour model. Primary colours of the CMYK colour model are cyan, magenta and yellow.)

PE: How to Draw Anime ClothesPE: How to Draw Anime Clothes7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Whilst these ideas are not unique or special to anime and can be used in other styles, the focus of this article will be the anime style. Clothing is a diverse topic that has a lot of shared principals that can be used.
The fibres that are used to make up a fabric sample are diverse and can be used to make a number of different fabric types. Using a simple search for a type of fabric yields hundreds of images that give you an idea on how it bends and folds and flows.
Take for example these sample top materials:
Mix of polyester and cotton, leather, silk, cotton, polyester-cotton, polyester spray jacket.
They all have different fold patterns and interact with the light source differently. The leather, silk and spray jacket are quite shiny on their ridges.
The hoodie and t-shirt have less rigid folds, whilst the cotton shirt has sharp angles.
PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.

This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio

Worldbuilding: Environments and Social StructuresAre you ready to build a world? Good!Worldbuilding: Environments and Social Structures2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
The Magic Gateway, by jerry8448. This is what we want to do with worldbuilding.
Worldbuilding is a complex process, because it is essentially creating the base of a different reality from our own. An author must pull together all the elements of a 'world', and capture that in text. This applies in any genre of writing. Even non-fiction has aspects of worldbuilding because it has setting and world details the same as fiction. In any genre, if the world is flat, the story will be flat and one of the best ways to build a fictional world is to know about one's own. Stories and readers both require an interesting and engaging place to go to, and our world, as well as any imagined one, can provide this! Because our world is the base of most human experiences, it is a great place to understand for both personal and writing reasons. If the author understands the sett
