1000 anatomy sketches challenge The challenge ends in 2016
This doesn't mean you can't draw sketches for the challenge anymore after January 1st 2016, it just means i will stop giving points. You can start and finish the challenge whenever you want
Hello and happy holidays everyone!
Since the new year is approaching rapidly, and my mind was on new years resolutions, i thought up a challenge for myself to improve my anatomy. And it would be boring to do it alone so i invite you all to join me.
Here's how the challenge goes:
1. The goal is to reach 1000 anatomy related drawings as fast as possible. There is no deadline.
2. You don't have to start in 2015, you can start now.
3. Comment on this journal with a link to the drawings you made for this challenge. I will keep an eye on this journal and if you comment anywhere else i might not find your comment. Don't link me in a reply though, my reply stack is chaos, you wouldn't want your comment to get mixed up th
Holiday Card Project 2014
The deviantART #HolidayCardProject is back for its 8th year! With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In 2013 alone, the Project received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for deviantART volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in a card will
PE: 10 DIY Art Materials (Halloween Special!)Artists Toolbox
I'm Bansini , and I'm going to be linking you to great tutorials that explain how to create 10 different DIY art materials. This is super useful when:
you need art materials fast but the store's closed,
the materials you need are really expensive,
you just want a quick trial of the medium,
the material is not available in your vicinity and you'd have to order it online
you need something cheap, quick and easy for Halloween!
I've got a 'Halloween' section for each one, which tells you how they can be of use during the season of scares. Without further ado, here they are!
10. Sticker Gum
I've seen a lot of artists make stickers, but sticker paper can be very expensive and sometimes it doesn't last too long. Use these instructions to create your own, depending on how much you'd like them to stick!
My version: I learnt this one during KG summer camp.
First, you draw your design on either a piece of paper
DIY Photography ToolsArtists Tools
Articles focusing on DIY tools for Photography are numerous.... therefore we're not going to repeat one this week! Instead we are going to point you to ten awesome tutorials for doing it yourself with regards to Photography. These easy, cheap and often very successful ideas will help you now and in the future, some will stay with you for life and some are great little 'life hacks' to get you through until you can afford and justify purchasing the top notch equipment!
Canon users - DIY Remote Trigger
This is an American idea so it estimates the cost to be around '3 bucks.' To the brits reading this article, that's approximately £5...to the rest of you, well, it's pretty damn cheap regardless! Instructables have a great article explaining how it's possible to build your own remote trigger from a mobile phone hands free kit.

PE: Creating your own MangaIntroduction
You have a great story, a bunch of characters and you want to create a manga. However, where do you start? Do you have it Left->Right or Right->Left? How should you publish it (*note: some publishers may have additional requirements/restrictions)?
The process is pretty much the same for any graphic progression such as comics.
Luckily, there are a great number of tutorials to help you on your way.
A storyboard is a panel or series of panels which detail the sequence of significant events in a planned scene, i.e. a rough sketch coupled with some words to describe the actions in the scene.
At this point you'd need to have an idea of whether you are making a left->right or right->left manga and your story has been separated into scenes and plot points you wish to use to drive your story.
A special Christmas present - ContestContest by Pendragon-Arts
A Special Christmas Present CONTEST!
I have a son who is now 28. He lives alone and has both Autism and Schizophrenia. He is both sad, lonely, and is forced to live a very isolated life. No one really understands the pain of being mentally ill and not able to fit in with society and even other people in general, unless you, yourself are, have a direct connection or relationship with someone that carries this themselves. Remember those who are alone for various reason or who have a hard time getting through the holidays each year for various reasons as you create and during the coming holiday season. Bless you!
10 years ago, when we were able to still live together, he dabbled for hours creating his various sketchings. He doesn't draw any more and I found a few of them that I held onto over the years and would like to help make his imagination come alive and make this Christmas special for him. He loves the mecha genre an
