Learning to draw with Loomis: art book feature
If you want to become a better artist and you find that your own "How to draw" books, or the tutorials on the internet are lacking in scope, then this article is for you. I'm going to talk to you about some of the best books on making art that have ever been written - and that's not an exaggeration.
These books were written around the WWII-era by a man called William Andrew Loomis. He was a very accomplished and widely published artist at the time, but what he's currently more well-known for is a series of art books he created during that time. These books have stood the test of time and their contents are still commonly used and recommended to art students of a wide range of skill levels, and if you're looking to improve your drawing skills, particulary faces and the human body, these books are a good place to start.
The major strength of his books is that they're not a step-by-step guide or tutorial on how to draw a specific picture, portrait or pose. Many art books fall into this ca

Showing, Part One
If you've ever taken a class in creative writing, you've no doubt heard the teacher repeat the phrase, "Show, don't tell" over and over again.  While there are few hardest rules in creative writing, this persistent little mantra might be the ultimate.  Teachers and writers who write about writing spout it out all the time, but what does it mean anyway?  After, isn't all writing really "telling" on some level?
It's best to view "showing" not as a single technique, but a summation of the most effective writing techniques.  If we know anything about poetry, it's that the best poetry usually conjures specific and concrete images.  Beyond language itself, images are the meat and bones of poetry.  So goes most of prose as well.  The prose writer has the added duty of creating situations and characters that seem real and believable.
Showing invites the reader into the world of out poem and story.  If the reader can see, smell, taste, and feel the world through our writing, the reader is more

Let The Light In: Art Features
:icongood-intention:
'Let The Light In (LTLI) is a new tutorial series from the group Good-Intention that will focus on the hows and whys of committing good deeds around the deviantART community.
The first edition of this series will focus on how to create an art feature in order to help fellow friends and artists gain some exposure for their work, regardless of the media. This is a fantastic way to brighten someone's day, and promote some positivity.
What Is An Art Feature?
An Art Feature is a journal (blog / article) that showcases deviations from one, or multiple artists. You may peruse the Art Feature Folder for some examples. Users choose to create art features for a number of reasons, from showcasing artwork they admire, to helping under-appreciated artists gain more views, to promoting art from their friends or watchers. No matter what the motivation, art features are a great way t

Toughening a Papercraft
Someone asked me how I made my FF7 SOLDIER swords---constructed from a papercraft template---strong enough for use as cosplay weapons. So, I divulged my favorite techniques. This can work for all kinds of swords and armor, of course, not just Final Fantasy. Even original designs! Though always beginning with a shell contrived from polygons (papercraft templates) is recommended.
To make my SOLDIER swords, I flattened out several breakfast cereal boxes and traced each of the template pieces onto the brown side. (Because the waxed side is just too hard to write on, or see amongst the cartoons.) After I cut the cardboard out, first I assembled the sword in two major parts: the blade above where it will connect to the hand guard; and then the hand guard, handle, & pommel. Then I took a lightweight hollow steel rod (could use wood or any other strong light material) just slightly less in diameter than the handle, and about 2.5ft long, and inserted it into the handle through two round holes I
