Riemea's drinkQ: What's your name, who are you and what do you do?My name is Katharina, but pretty much everyone calls me Kathi. I'm a Japanese Studies major, studying in Munich, but I'm currently living in Japan to get some first-hand experience about all things Japanese. Before I came to Japan I lived in Canada for a while, studying International Business Management at a tiny college. I love art, music, and literature (especially English literature), and am also really interested in astronomy and history.Q: Let's talk art. What is your main art form? Do you do any others?Art! My main art form is digital art (drawing/painting). I do a lot of other stuff too, though, like traditional art, crafting, and I write poems from time to time. Q:

Tea time with Eitvys200 Vol18: AgaaveVolume 18: AgaaveQ: How are you doing today?I am fine, thanks.Hanna's drinkQ: What's your name, who are you and what do you do?My name is Hanna and I live in northern part of Finland, in a little town surrounded by forests and nearby a lake. Outside of DeviantArt I have full time job which takes majority of my time. The rest of time, outside my work, is divided between my dog, family, friends and all kind of artsy things and of course big part of those artsy things is DA.Q:What is your main art form? Do you do any others?My main art form is traditional art; I usually do drawings by mixing watercolors, markers and colored pencils. I am a detail and texture junkie, the more colors and details I can stuff in my artworks the better! I do also digital art now and then and would love to become better with it.Q: Could you
Tea time with Eitvys200 Vol17: FeliziasVolume 17: Felizias Q: Hai. How are you doing today?Hey, there. Sunday morning always feels good. Feli's drinkQ: What's your name, who are you and what do you do?Most know me as Feli and that's the name I prefer too. My real name is Lisa but... I don't like it much. I have been on DA for 7 years and mostly am active in community related groups like dAWishingWell, ProjectComment or smaller ones like Group-KickStarters. I also do art here too though. I like to think of myself as a Jack of all trades but you can see I have "phases" with a certain focus on a specific medium like photography right now. In real life I am currently absolving my training as a forwarding agent. My company specifies on seafreight and airfreight handling for industrial companies. Q: You mentioned being a jack of all trades bu

Community voices Vol. 4: SeniorityWelcome back to the Community voices! This time we are talking about Seniority.dekorAdum - Senior, Deviousness award, fomer CVWhen I was a noobie on the site I would be so excited to see that a Senior Member commented or faved my piece. Obviously I would be excited for any favs and comments - still am - but for some reason, just because they had a tick (`) I felt special. I had no clue who they are, what did they do to get a different symbol than mine.Later on, when I got to meet more and more people and become friends with seniors, volunteers and so on, I would learn their stories, backgrounds. They didn't seem so scary anymore. They do stand out, but they are just regular deviants just like anyone else.Some people are looking at the subject as a mission or some sort of goal. They would do anything just to get it. I think it is, in a way admirable, however if you are pretending to be helpful, supportive then th

How to: ColorAs a follow up of my "How to: Anatomy" journal that was received so well by the community, I will continue this series with a how to on color.Color is considered to be one of the hardest subjects when it comes to art. Most beginners (and even some advanced artists) struggle to get the colors of their work right. I myself do as well. This journal is by no means a full coverage on how to color. It will however be a good list of resources to get you started on this hard subject.A few things to get startedThere are a few things to colorThere's hue and value. Hue determines what place in the color spectrum the color is in (red, green, blue.. etc). Value determines how dark or light a color is. In order to understand colors, you have to know how to influence and work with both of them.Your brain is deceiving you

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblinDo 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. STEP 1First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
My favorite tutorialsHere is a list of all the tutorials that i used to learn from. As many of you already know, i am a self taught artist. But the name "self-taught" is a little misleading, since i wasn't quite alone, i referenced and learned from many tutorials. So i am a tutorial-taught artist Though some are from other sources, most of them come from artists on deviantart. Some aren't even tutorials but images that by looking at them, i get a better understanding of something.They have shaped who i am as an artist. You can probably see their influence on my art to this day.So without further ado, here they are.One of the first tutorials on colors i looked at, and one of the best :iconaquasixio: has some very good tutorials on colors as well http://aquasixio.deviantart.com/gallery/8808807/Tutorialssome examples: This is not a tutorial but whenever i look at it i feel like i know how to draw cl
