Noted from !Mad-Mutt (https://www.deviantart.com/mad-mutt) ★ The first 10 people to comment in this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list! ★ If you comment you have to do the same on your journal. ★ The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone! :iconmad-mutt: :iconsomwei: :iconDeejayaxel: :iconjasminem18: :iconAkuBubbles: :iconbandigirl15:

100 themes

100 themes

I'm going to start the 100 themes art challenge again. I think I tried it around 2009 or so, but I feel more..steady? with my art now. It  still has a way to go, but I just feel better about it :).  It's just good practice to grow on I think, even though it's so simple. I'll be doing the first style of it, because it was the one I tried before and I'd like to finish what I started... (As a side note, everyone I promised art to I am still working on them. :) A few characters I have never drawn before so I'm just trying to not rush my first try at them. Bad things happen when I rush. Even my doodles here take me about 4 hours to look like they

Survey Says Features

Survey Says Features

Okay so my poll says you guys would like me to do more features in the coming year. Would joint features be better or would you rather have just one person at a time but more from them? If you would like to be featured next month or know someone who would, leave a comment here. To do: *Re-work Hibbles comic for my a little better tablet skills. *Try to draw a Transformer (80's or Beast Wars is all I really know. I'm thinking 80's Soundwave) *Draw some Fraggles again (ether redraw some old pics or come up with some new ones) *Get SAI to agree with me when it comes to water, feathers, and (gemstones DONE:D!) * Draw something Sailor Moon

Has there been anymore news on the PPG reboot...

Has there been anymore news on the PPG reboot...

... beyond the special and comic book? Everything seems to have gone silent about it and I was just wondering. *********** In other news the hype about the next pokemon gen has finally gotten to me in a big way. I can't wait! I guess with all the added features in the pokemon themselves it's too much to hope for a storyline with a branching path where you get to join anything Team Rocket-ish but I have a feeling it will be coming someday.  But part of me feels like they would have a story about becoming a gym leader before they'd think of  a 'villain' story? Hm. *********** I've been reading  up on anatomy some more lately, and there is this

Rambling and Features

Will Be Starting to Post Anatomy Studies Again among other things. Learning a bunch of new programs at the moment. The tablet while I still can't make lines look as good as I want and I am a long way from smooth, at least feels steady now. I draw on it and I don't feel like when I lift my pen my hand 'loses its place' in the whole mind--->Hand--->Pen--->'paper' loop. Did a little DA housekeeping and it sort of clicked how far I've come. While I still can't draw up to my eyes taste yet I notice so many flaws I didn't before in my really old work and old work I use to admire. Making everything on a face even, let alone limbs to t

All Goes Well

All Goes Well

Sorry for the lack of actually art submissions. I have been working on some pictures but most of them are waiting in scraps to be turned into something viewable. I've been doing a lot more studies to but lost track of posting them here. I will be getting back on track after this weekend and have at least three finished PPG pics to show for it. I've been sort of a mess coming to terms with turning 30 on the 4th but I finally hit myself upside the head,  mentally, with the bright side of things, like it not being that old and our world not being Logan's Run ;). Some RL friends from my facebook have requested some art from me, among other

Coming up with a system

Coming up with a system

1)If I do my studies for the day, then I can draw all the fun ponies and things I really like drawing, like Hibbles and ponies. 2) This meme is chewing on my mind http://marbletoast.deviantart.com/art/MLP-Art-Meme-Template-182550659 right now. What do you think, a canon MLP or an OC with it? I was thinking a canon G1 that doesn't get much press. I've never drawn some of those pony gen styles before. At this point I don't know which gen I actually draw mine as. 3) Thinking of drawing fraggles again, now that I have a bit more of an eye for shape than I did years ago. 4)Drawing more Looney Tunes sounds fun to. 5)I hope I'm not bugging anyon

Tablet tips

Tablet tips

Okay so so far I have: 1)Draw BIG and then make your picture small. Still not sure how big is big. I hope my windows 8 agrees with it. It freezes up at werid times. 2)Draw in small lines and clean up later. Still not sure about the cleaning up required to vary line weight. It would help if I was better at seeing a fine difference in messy and clean lines. My eyes love messy XD 3) Line stabilization and line delay!  I have GIMP and PS CS5, and just downloaded that travel version of SAI. I am hunting for it in each program like buried treasure ATM. 4)My tablet (a Monoprice, very well made for the price) actually had no driver for itself on
