Please Donate! + Premium Brush Set incomingHey guys!
I've been working on a big project lately, in particular a premium brush set that will go commercial in the near future. I'm working on a personal website at the moment to launch this premium pack on, and I'm asking you guys to help me with that. I'm a broke student, and investing in this project will take some time and money. Please feel free to make a donation to help me deliver the stuff you guys want to see!

2 Years!Hey guys!
I just found out that I once logged in for the first time on this site on July the 8th, 2009. Since then I filled this page with all my creations and shared them with all you amazing people, for more than 2 years now! More than 45.000 people visited this site, visitors from 159 different countries. My first brush set, Midnight City, got viewed more than 100.000 times (and downloaded on other sites by a lot more). All these figures tell one story: you guys are awesome. All those comments I get every week make me feel relieved and proud, and I can't thank you guys enough for all the support. These past 2 years are just the beginning, as I will continue supplying you guys with awesome resources. I'm also thinking of setting up my own site (help appreciated ), so please stick around!
Again, thanks for being awesome!

My Second Daily Deviation!Hey guys!
As a part of Vector Week on dA, I've been asked to kick off with showcasing one of my brush sets as an ' example of vector work'. All of my brushes have vector shapes in them, but one of them is just filled with them: Infinity Brush Set. I chose to feature this one, because it is in my opinion a good example of using vector shapes alone for a brush set.
Here's the link to my second daily dev:
Big thanks go to:

Thanks guys! Off to a new year of creativeness!
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
