Coloring Walkthrough
Just wanted to highlight some different coloring techniques I found throughout DA. Most of these tutorials are for Photoshop. A few highlight other programs.
I have collected these great tutorials over the years from DA and want to make it easier for everybody to find just the right kind of coloring tutorial without having to search through all of DA. This is mostly focused on anime/manga and cartoon coloring styles. All tutorials are copyright their respective owners.

Artist Walkthrough
This walkthrough focuses on:
- guiding you as an artist and improving your artistic skills
So having said that... let's get started!
I have been drawing for a long time. Since I was little I would draw all the time on anything I could find. That passion for drawing and art has always stayed with me. But the problem is talent or potential will only get you so far. If you really want to become a great artist you will have to put in many hours of work. And you would preferably have someone there to guide you. Even now I am learning about basic skills I wish I had learned years ago. That is the problem of being self taught... you have to figure everything out yourself. Of course there are benefits to that too. Self taught artists are generally very motivated and passionate people. I have only come to the point where I am now just because I am passionate and slightly obsessed with drawing. But I want to know more, learn more and improve more. So that is why I am setting up this little drawi

Respect Yourself
My friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

This is just a collection of Commissions I have purchased based on my OC Jackey. This is kinda just my way of supporting my favorite artists, if they do commissions.

I will try to always have at least one person doing a commission for me at any given time as long as I can afford this in my budget. ^_^



If a Poll takes place on dA and no one bothers to votes, does it even count? 

No deviants said Yes.
No deviants said No.
No deviants said =3 Maybe...
No deviants said Like WTF, KnightofWoe. Stop polling to see how many people are actually there and make something more then just your daily practice.

So I've actually been enjoying doing sketches daily. I thought it would start being like a pain but I find myself wanting to draw more then ever.

However, real talk I am going to start taking on a larger work load at my actual work starting this next week. So I really want to continue to do at least a sketch a day. But I have been meaning to practice more, start studying new things, and trying different methods. I just am finding hard to balance everything I want to do in a day.

I don't know. ARRRGGGH I guess because I wish I could just expand the length of a day so I could fit in everything. XP

Oh well I just wanted to rant about it. It still sucks that I finally got my work load at my job to a reasonable amount and I just get more additional work.

Sorry for anyone that reads my journals. I just have been wanting to keep like a log of how I feel sorta, so yeah. Maybe someone else can relate to how I feel and not feel as alone.

Peace out and take care everyone! =)

I love playing ARAMs, and normals from time to time. I've tried Ranked but it is too much work I think I am currently Sliver III.

I'll put some more stuff here later, when I think of anything else to add.

Thank you for the pleasant birthday wish. =)

Sorry for the late response. I've been kinda dead to the world lately. Hopefully you've been doing well?

I've gotta catch back up with all your posts and all the art people have made. XP

I really like your writings, but that one especially hit home. Sometimes I can be so negative about the stuff I draw. XP

Just reinforced good ideas to keep in mind when practicing art and just stuff in general. But keep up the great writing! (and hopefully your feeling better.) ^_^
