Find your way around DA#4: Composition+PerspectiveA good composition can turn an 'average' artwork into something memorable. It's more than just 'how to make things look nice'. A well thought-out composition can guide the eye of the viewer, telling a story in just one single image. Even artwork that's technically perfect can be boring if no real though was put into the composition.
It's not always the case, but composition often goes hand in hand with perspective. Many artists struggle with this (both beginners and more advanced), but a basic knowledge of perspective can really take your work to the next level. It's an essential tool for drawing credible backgrounds and landscapes.
The basics for these two skills seem easy, but more advanced composition and perspective can be real brain-breakers. I've collected tutorials here to help you get started. Read, learn, practice, and be amazed by your own work!
Tutorials and quick tips to get you started
Find your way around DA #2: Animal StockDrawing animals can be a challenge, especially when you usually only draw humans. But that shouldn't keep you from trying! Luckily there is a large variety of animal stock available right here on DeviantArt. Here's another list to help you find just the right one for you ^^
- This list is by no means complete. There is a lot of animal stock on DA, of varying degrees of quality, so I've had to make some selections. The mentioned deviants have a large amount of stock specifically for that animal, the stock is of above-average quality, and/or stock of that type is difficult to find. I've focused on photographic references.
- Some deviants are mentioned more than once, if they have a substantial amount of stock of more than one kind of animal.
- That a deviant is mentioned is listed under an animal does not mean that they don't have other animal stock. Almost all do.
- Sadly not all of the mentioned deviants/groups are still active. However their galleries are still re
Find your way around DA #1: Pose ReferencesComing up with interesting, accurate poses for your characters can be difficult. Either they all end up looking the same, or the poses just don't look right. Drawing from a reference is a great way to practice this. Luckily, there are lots of amazing resources available to help you out, both here on DeviantArt and one the big bad WWW. I've listed the ones I know here, so you don't have to do the digging.
- I've picked resources that focus on poses, not on anatomy. This means that the drawn pose references listed here are not necessarily anatomically correct. Though the two are definitely related, to me they're not necessarily the same thing. Your anatomy might be great, but a good pose can really bring your image to life.
- This journal focuses on humans, not animals. Animal references will be listed in the next journal.
A little guide to the list

Find your way around DA #5: Coloring and ShadingIn a previous journal we had a look at color theory (Find your way around DA #3: Color Theory). But once you've figured out what colors to use you realize you've barely started. You have to figure out where to place your shadows and light, and what is the best way to add the colors to your canvas?
In this journal I've collected tutorials and references that cover these subjects. This list is not complete! There are so many tutorials on DA, especially for coloring, it would be almost impossible for me to list them all. When an artist has multiple coloring tutorials I've usually picked only one or two, so be sure to check out their galleries! You will notice that there are almost as many different techniques as there are artists. There is no 'one right way'. Try a few, find something that works for you, and then make it your own ^^
- As usual I've tried to seperate starter and more advanced tutorials, but I must admit the divisin is some
Find your way around AnimationDigital Art Week
Animation is a part of digital art that fascinates many people. Most of us have at least one favorite animated movie, either from our childhood, or from the time that we were adult children. There is something about seeing a still image that was born from someone's imagination, come to life.
Maybe it's because of this that many people want to try animation in some form or another. However, there's a good reason why in spite of this there are so few animations on DeviantArt: Animation is a lot of work, and it's difficult. Because of this, many people end up not trying, or giving up halfway. And I think that's a shame!
So, for this Digital Art week, I am finally bringing back the 'Find Your Way around DA' journals . This one is dedicated to animation resources and tutorials for aspiring animators. I hope it will inspire you, and give you the confidence to give animation a go. Have fun creating!
Find your way around DA #6: AnatomyOne of the basic skills in art is anatomy. Although it sometimes may seem as if an artist doesn't bother about the anatomical corectness of their characters (cartoons, anime, caricature), you can be sure that they know perfectly well how to draw it if they had to: Know the rules, so you can break them all the better.
Unfortunately that's much, much easier said than done: Learning anatomy is bloody hard. It takes time and dedication to learn just the basics, and even established artists often struggle with it. Luckily many people have gone before us, and some of them have been kind enough to make tutorials, to hopefully make it just a tiny bit easier <3 I hope these can help you in your quest to improve your art skills.
These tutorials will not magically teach you how to draw perfect anatomy. There is only o
Find your way around DA #3: Color TheoryPicking the right colors for your work can be a long process. It's about more than just personal preferences. Colors can behave strangely. Some things work better together than others, but sometimes tried and tested combinations suddenly don't work in a piece, or colors that usually don't go together are an unexpectedly great match. What madness is this?!
Rest assured: There is reason behind this madness: Color Theory. It's a term that I think many have heard before, and only few really understand. But it's a very important tool for visual artists. The basics are simple, but it can get pretty complex, and getting the hang of it takes a lot of practice.
So in this journal I have collected resources that try to explain the concept of Color Theory, and/or give tips on how to pick your palettes. This is not a journal on coloring in general! The two things obviously do overlap, but I will try to focus exclusively on the theoretical aspect of it.
I hope this list will be use
Find your way around Landscapes and EnvironmentsLandscape Weekend
Welcome to another FywaDA! This time I have collected a large amount of resources that will hopefully help you improve your landscape and environment drawing skills.
Before we move on, I would like to give a very brief explanation of the difference between landscapes, environments and backgrounds.
A landscape is a painting or drawing which depicts a scene somewhere. This can be in the countryside, the city ('cityscape'), near water ('waterscape'), or anywhere you like. There can be characters in the image, but the main focuss is on the overall scene. The character (if there are any) is there to enhance the landscape. (ex. Shrine)
An environment creates a setting for your character to move around in. It tells a story, and may even tell you something about the character. The character and environment interact and work together. For example, the character sits on something, casts a

“Come on Jay! One more building!” Celia called to her friend as she jumped across a large gap of two buildings, daring to look down. She rolled gracefully to the other side, laughing and looking back. Jay, a dark haired girl with chocolate brown eyes and a small but strong structure followed, jumping across and joining Celia to run down the slope like ceiling, away from the yelling bullies that would have smashed their heads in. The girls chuckled at them as they ran and leaped across the roofs of the town, District 37 it was called, a small but highly technological city that they had both grown up in. The two little 12 year old girls knew the city front and back, and commonly used the route of parkouring across the roofs to escape from bullies and trouble.
“Sil! Wait up!” Jay called as she jumped over to her friend, “I think we lost them! Stop will ya?”
Celia, or ‘Sil’ as she liked to be called, skidded to a stop on the main tower of the city, A large industry building with a shiny glass roof to reflect the glimmering light. She looked back at her friend, who came to a stop next to her, wiping her brow of sweat. “Damn your fast! Where’d you learn to run like that?” Jay jokingly yelled.
Sil shrugged “What can I say? I have long legs, you don’t~” She poked her tongue out and they had a mini silly face contest. Laughing as they looked out into the distance, seeing their beautiful city surround them.
“You know,” Sil started. “One day we’re gonna be up here, as adults, and we’ll probably be too big for this glass to hold,” She giggled and started wobbling on one foot to worry Jay on purpose, but she didn’t react, instead she kept talking like nothing was wrong and balanced along with her.
“Oh sure, you will, I definitely won’t~. I’m never leaving the roofs, you can’t make me~!”
“Hey..!” Sil stood properly and went red like a tomato. “I wasn’t trying to!” She whisper yelled back making Jay giggle and pat her shoulder as Sil pouted. “I’m not leaving them either! It’s too fun to give up right?”
Jay Jumped up and down on the roof, making it echo a loud bang. Sil wobbled and instantly grabbed Jay’s arm in worry. “Jay!!! Be careful!” They both laughed, but Sil more giggled nervously. She loved the roofs, but was always a tad more careful than Jay was, she was really the second most daring out of the two, but not by far. Jay continued to jump and dance on the roof, she started singing to go with it, and Jay had the most beautiful voice, Sil couldn’t help but blush and go all goo goo eyes at her when she saw her do it. She loved watching Jay sing and dance, on the roof, at her house, in the park, everywhere.
She’d give anything to stay with her all the time, but sadly, the girl’s parents didn’t get along at all. Jay’s parents, unlike herself, were anti-change, still living in the olden days. It had been 350 years since the revolution of inventions in 2050, but there still seemed to be a small minority who still refused to change, they still wanted to live the old fashioned way, no inventions, no ideas, no change. That was Jay’s parents opinions. Not Jay’s, she was on Sil’s side. Sil’s family were core supporters of their city and it’s industry, her own father was one of the major inventors that founded the very glass building they were standing on now. Which was probably why they could always get away with climbing all over it. But suddenly they felt the glass underneath them crack, and they both froze.
They leaped backwards, running in different directions away from the glass that continued to crack and shatter. How could this have happened? They were so little, they wouldn’t have been able to break through. They ran together, heading straight for the edge of the roof until suddenly some glass cracked in between them, separating Jay from Sil, who was dangerously close to the edge.
“…S-Sil..?” Jay slowly looked up at her and gulped, making up her mind. “..I want you to move away, right now.”
Sil looked terrified. “B-But, the glass…we’ll—“
“Celia..” Jay said carefully and reassuringly “Please…I’m right here, I promise..just…move back, okay? we’ll be fine.” She gave Sil a soft smile. “Move.”
Sil hesitated for a moment, gulped, and nodded, carefully moving backwards on the cracking glass. She flinched as the loud cracks got louder, “J-Jay..”
“It’s okay, it’s okay. I’m coming.” Jay carefully moved forwards, taking light easy steps across the glass. “You’re almost there, keep going, we’ll get out of this, together.” Sil couldn’t help but wonder how Jay could always be so determined and persistent about things. It worried her. It was always ‘this will happen’ and ‘I am right’ and ‘We will get out of this’. It was like she didn’t know the meaning of mistakes, and being wrong. But no one could know everything, that was Sil’s opinion.
“You’re almost there Sil, almost there—“ she gasped “NO!” and before Sil could react to the breaking glass under her, Jay leaped forwards and shoved Sil onto the stone edge...
...But Jay suddenly felt the glass give way, and she fell.
She was on the ground. Her body went numb. And all Sil could do was hear the deadening thud from up high, scrambling over to the edge to see her motionless body.
“JAY!” She choked out, tears began to pour down her face while she harshly covered her mouth in terror. Sobs escaped her as she stared horrifically down at her friend, motionless in the centre of the floor, people crowded around her in shock, hair covered her glassy eyes, blood poured from the back of her head.
“G-GET AWAY!” She screamed making a majority of the crowd look up at her and then the roof. “GET AWAY FROM HER!” She dashed to the side and started climbing down immediately, balling her eyes out when she finally came down and raced to the centre. She pushed through crowds of men and women, not caring about the rude remarks she got, ‘The daughter of the magnificent Charles Cogsmith’? Being rude?
…what a ridiculous thought.
She raced to Jay’s side, grabbing her head harshly. “Jay!!” She shook her head a little. “Wake up!” Sil sobbed. She wiped her face of blood and tears, pleading for her to wake up, but when Jay did not she dropped her head, resting it on Jay’s chest… and cried. She felt as if her entire world crumbled to ashes. “…Wake up..please..”
