2016 - Year of Art!:iconKeLou::icontifeh::icongypsycorset::iconjazzery::icongrumpyskunk::iconajani-tizer:
This journal is mostly for my benefit and reflection. I don't think I have too many active watchers, but to those that are active and to any new visitors: hi! Most of my art "career" has been spent dabbling. I do not and have not ever considered myself to be particularly great at the craft, nor have I really striven to push myself from my comfort zone. I have certainly improved from where I started over the years, but I have never really reached a point where I have been truly satisfied with the things I create. When Shan (GypsyCorset) suggested art improvement as our collective (with Jazzery) New Year's Resolution of sorts, it really resonated with me in a way that stuck. Onwards and upwards from here--to progress!
To keep me motivated:

Thanks to :iconthenekk: for the idea!
CONTEST: Winners ANNOUNCEDThank you ALL for your beautiful, creative, and talented entries! I cannot wait to go through them all. Judging will begin tonight. Due to work, school, and distance between judges it will take time for everyone to go through and get their votes together. JUDGING will conclude on April 30, 2013 and winners will be announced on MAY 01, 2013. After that date, I will contact winners regarding their prizes!
Thanks again, and GOOD LUCK everyone!
WHAT TO DRAW:
The subject of this contest is an unnamed, original character.
It is a gryphon. However, due to abnormalities, it was born with NO EYES.
It is a cross between a black barn owl (http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mc7jmfOReJ1qkui3ko1_500.jpg) and a snow leopard (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ZSCGLprs22A/UIUFDrxefkI/AAAAAAAABCA/Pwphp6x0ho8/s1600/Snow+Leopard+Hunting.jpg).
* From the shoulders and up, it has the head of a black barn owl but it has the ears of a snow leopard.
For nine years, I held the username "meiynai" and for nine years, it served me well. I really outgrew the name several years ago, as it was my first alias ever used back in the year 1998ish. I really did not want to create a new account, though, so I am glad that they now allow us to change our usernames. I selected Beaudion because on August 13, 2012, I will marry my best friend. Since that is his last name, it suits me now. He is one of the biggest sources of support in my life today, so I like to honor him with this small token of appreciation. My soon-to-be maiden name of Mráček is of Czech origin and it literally translates into "clouds" which are a piece of nature that I have always loved, so this journal skin is also a perfect tribute to my heritage and name in my opinion.
My dreams and goals.
Ultimately, of course

Yesterday and today, January 25 and 26, 2012, I have gone through the entirety of my gallery. This year, in November, I will have been on deviantART for TEN years. Holy smokes! That being said... I have accumulated 10 years worth of seriously old art. Some things got deleted that I didn't feel contributed to my growth, and everything else old got moved to scraps. I feel better now that it's over with, and my only intentions now are focusi
Tips on writing a backstoryWeee hey ya'll it's ya boy Raiiny and today I'm going to give ya'll some tips and advice on how to write actual original backstories!!
Btw, backstories don't have to be 100% original.
Getting inspired by your favorite artist/animator is totally acceptable!!
Just try to avoid taking the entire idea because, you're basically just stealing their ideas and not sticking to your own ideas or thoughts.
Alright so here are some tips:
Brainstorming is the key way to start a good way off on writing a backstory for a fictional character.Write your ideas and thoughts down on a separate sheet of paper and maybe tape it up on your wall so you can look at what you thought of every now and then.Like I said, inspiration is okay!! Maybe pick out some of the ideas that really grab your attention or interest you the most, and maybe exaggerate it in a way where you feel satisfied with?
2) Types of backstories
There are many different types of backstories out there. There's horror, comedy, rom

F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
