Worldbuilding: Environments and Social StructuresAre you ready to build a world? Good!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

PE: Comparing Copics and WatercoloursTraditional ArtMore Like This
When starting out in traditional media it can be a little intimidating to decide upon what medium to start or try working with. After seeing what some amazing artists can do with these traditional tools, it may be difficult to choose which one to try out. This article endeavours to cover two such mediums, Copics (an alcohol based marker) and watercolours (a water based paint), starting to compare them for the newcomer.
Costs and Initial Set up
The initial cost of any traditional medium can be expensive as several things need to be purchased at the same time. There are often cheaper alternatives to the paints and markers that can be substituted.
Watercolours come in a few varieties, the two most common being pans or tubes. A set of Winsor & Newton pans (12) is around $22USD whilst a set of 10 tubes is about $35USD. They can be purchased individually

Precautions While dealing with SketchesTraditional ArtMore Like This
Heya! my lovely deviants and watchers! I'm back with another article to present to you! This time it is about sketches.
We all make sketches that we love of fantasies, fan art, or portraits. But, while drawing, if we reach a certain point and then make a mistake, our sketch is destroyed forever! (Unless you have a personal time machine and you go back in time to tell yourself not to make that mistake again ) So, until scientists invent the time machine, I will present and discuss three very common mistakes that we all make and how to prevent their occurrence.
This is what we will cover:
Mistakes and Prevention StepsA Word of Thanks!
As I said in the beginning, the examples given below are the equivalent of catastrophic events to artists who sketch! Our whole project/artwork can be ruined by the occurrence of these mistakes happening in our lives. Most of these catastroph
