Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditional tools.
How to stream your art! And benefit from it.Has any of you ever thought about streaming their art on Twitch creative? But something keeps you from it.
I certainly recommend trying it! The audience on Twitch Creative is generally very encouraging and supportive.
You can grow your art-skills, get tons of work done, broaden your social circle, broaden your audience and if you like, even earn some money to buy food for your pet.
Here are some great benefits to streaming your work, in terms of skill development.
1. It keeps you from getting distracted by external things (Like social media, Youtube, gaming, procrastination etc).
2. It expands your social circles, it opens up a whole new range of cool people to meet and learn from.
3. The audience could help you with feedback and suggestions, whenever you ask for it.
4. It helps against the whole, sitting and working alone thing, if you work from home.
Holiday Card Project 2015!
The DeviantArt #HolidayCardProject is back for its 9th 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 the past few years, this project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards are 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
