The World Begins With You
I am mainly a traditional artist, but if a challenge arises, then I will switch to digital art.
My dream is to work as a Graphic Artist, mostly in the animation industry. The sole magic of animation has influenced me to start drawing. And when I started drawing, I joined deviantART to further my dreams.
What do I like to do in my spare time? Just the usual routine: Drawing, reading, writing, listening to music, video games, and doing homework.

Tea PaintingArtist's ToolboxSTelari
It smells lovely and gives beautiful sepia tones and great textures - what's not to love about tea and coffee painting?
Different effects and shades can be acquired by using different kinds of tea. Black tea is the easiest to use, since it's also the easiest to make the darkest essence with it, while white tea and green tea are much harder in this manner. I prefer teabags (only for painting though), but using leafy tea can create interesting textures, if you leave the leaves on paper until the whole layer dries. You can use tea bags as stamps!
Painting with coffee is similar, although the differences in shade aren't that significant. You need to be careful with instant coffee - thick layers can get sticky and shiny even after it's dry. Ground coffee and textures go along very well, if you leave the grounds on paper, ju

edit: We need more hoodies! So where is your entry??
Don't be so shy. And you can hide your face if you want, that's ok.
A while ago Nyx-Valentine and I decided that we need to do it again. Grab any hoodie near you (if you don't have something use any other kind of head covering or be creative) and get your photo done!
Let's see if we can beat the amount of 82 entries from last time.
What are you waiting for?

Want more commissions?This journal is for artists who want to get more commissions, or want to open commissions and never had so they don't know how best to present their art, or even for those artists who took commissions before but would appreciate some more tipsYuuza
There are a few pretty important things to consider before publicly announcing you're opening commissions:
1. payment method. The deviantart commission widget takes 20% of your profit, but then again more deviants have points so you're likely to get 20% more customers like that. But don't forget there are people who have paypal and don't feel like dealing with points so if you decide to open commissions through deviantart, don't let that be the ONLY payment method.
Paypal is the most common payment method used online and i strongly recommend it. Make a paypal account, connect it to a card and you're ready. But don't forget paypal has a limit of $3000 per year withdrawal. So if you're serious about drawing art for a living and you
PE: Sketches and sketchbooksSketches and sketchbooksSTelari
Big, marvellous, elaborate, finished paintings and drawings you can see in various stunning galleries on dA and outside dA, while they require time and can occupy artist's workspace even for months, in a lot of cases make a small percentage of created pictures lying around the creator's desk. Sketches aren't just noted concepts or a stage in preparing an artwork - a couple of sketches a day can be the most influential source of improving your skills.
You have probably been through this more than once - far from your room, you got struck with a brilliant idea. In diffrent circumstances you'd most likely rush to transfer it onto paper or canvas, but well, that might be not so easy in a classroom or on a bus. It can be difficult even if you're home - how about more than one idea at once? Using a sketchbook as a notepad for any concepts is by far
Becoming a Better Digital ArtistHello people,PVproject
I've been asked many times about how to draw or paint and where to find tips and tutorials about it.
I, as a self-taught artist, have struggled a lot trying to learn and understand how to draw well and do digital painting. So I decided to put on a series of journals on this topic providing tips and resources, hoping that it can be useful for anyone who is willing to become an artist.
This series focuses mainly on digital art, but most of the principles can be applied to traditional art as well. This is not a training course, so please don't expect me to give you an in-depth look to it. Just take it as a collection of resources.
I have found most of what I've learned on YouTube and the internet, therefore I will provide many links to pages and channels related to what I'm talking about.
