Introducing: SenshiStock Sketch Web App!Hey all!More Like This
Many of you have been asking me for something like this for years, so I'm really excited to make this announcement! Thanks to my handsome husband, cairn4, we now have a beta version of SenshiStock Sketch, a web app for gesture and sketching practice using SenshiStock images. You can also think of it as a SenshiStock randomizer!
Here's what it looks like and how it works:
Check it out here:
There's only 463 images right now, but I will be adding more soon. You have the option to change the timer and there's a link to visit the full image on DA if you want to work from it for a bit longer (you can also pause the timer to keep the current image up longer). This site should work fairly well on most mobile devices too, but please give us feedback if you run into any technical issues!

DA has an amazing tutorial section, but it's always good to gather resources from more than one place. So, here is a list of some outstanding tutorials I have stumbled upon. Some are old, some are new, but all of them are worth giving a look at!
Giger Style Photoshop Tutorial
Type: Science Fiction, Dark
"For the final installment of our Sci-Fi series, I thought it would be good to up the ante and do something real crazy. The following walkthrough outlines the techniques and resources used to create a Giger influenced ‘Biomech’ piece. Many of the processes are very similar to our previous walkthroughs, however this type of work requires an important added ingredient: patience!!"
ARTISTS BEWARE! Ad Agency Paying in Exposure"If we had money for this, we'd be going after real artists…who paint on real canvases. Not the digital fake stuff."More Like This
When I received the original Email from Roy of a famous New York Advertising Agency asking me to work for 'exposure' for one of his multimillion dollar clients, I was going to just let it go and chalk it up to another day, another non-paying offer in the life of an artist. We get this kind of nonsense all the time. That doesn't make it right but there isn't much we can do to stop this kind of thinking and behavior from the people that wish to use our very specialized set of skills… right?
After considering it for a couple of days, I decided that I didn't have to just accept this. No artist should… ever! You would never ask a Doctor to give you free treatment for good word of mouth. You would never tell a Coffee shop that in lieu of payment, you're going to tell everyone how great the coffee you just bought is.
I decided to reply to Mr. Creativ
Petition For Stricter Mature Content FilteringREAD DESCRIPTION FOR MY PROPOSAL.More Like This
This is a petition for myself and those like me who are, quite frankly, fed up with seeing pictures of basically naked/half naked/blatantly naked people on the front page of DeviantArt. DA gave us a mature content filter, but what's the point if we're still having to see these kinds of images? We need stricter filtering! If I see one more butt or lady walking around in her underwear...
