Stop hating your art and yourself +Youtube version
HEY GUYS! I recently launched my youtube channel with NukeRooster (https://www.deviantart.com/nukerooster) and I decided for my first video to make a Video form. You can listen to it here or watch below: [link]
So this is something that I've been bottling up for a while and I want to address it. Now, before you harp on me, I am guilty of this from time to time as well. However I want to open up the floor to this conversation.
I try to stay kind and gentle in my conversations with people. However for this, forgive my blunt tone. I am giving people advice based on what worked for me and other professionals I've talked to. This advice is for ANYONE, but mostl
THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED! But feel free to do it just for fun/improvement!
This was a drawing challenge from `SenshiStock (https://www.deviantart.com/senshistock) and :iconmostlyguystock:!
Hands and feet are pretty hard to draw. Lots of artists struggle with them! Even when other things come naturally, hands and feet can still be quite a problem. The best way to get better at drawing hands and feet is to study them!
The Challenge: Sketch or draw 50 feet AND 50 hands from reference photos or life.
Deadline: The deadline has passed for this challenge, but you can still participate and make yourself a better artist!
You can post them as one giant post, in groups, one at a
Interview with `loish
~MemoiresDuneFille asks "Loish, what inspired you to become an artist?"
I can't say that anything specific really inspired me. It was more a natural progression. I have been drawing since I was very young and honestly do not remember when I even started doing it, but I do remember always enjoying it and seeing it as my 'talent' throughout elementary and middle school.

It was torture! So I felt I had to do it in

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

So you want to make a comic?
You need something to make your comic about, whether it's a one shot, a series of standalone strips or a longer tale you have to have something to tell.
You don't have a story?
Or alternatively you don't have an artist to draw your story? The great thing about comics is that it's such a good place for creative people to team up and play up to each other's strengths. Have a look around forums and comic hosting sites, post advertisements, spread the word you're looking for someone and hopefully you should find someone pretty quickly!
Now I probably shouldn't be one to write this up or anything since I've been to ONE artist alley in my life-time and will be attending a second one at the end of the year, but I have been going around asking other artists about the artist alley and what should I do or what should any artist do to better prepare themselves for the anime convention's artist alley. After much much research and questionings I've compiled a list of things that have been suggested to me and others that have asked the similar question, "What should I do for the artist alley?" Hopefully this will be insightful to those artists that are attending any convention that
