Music video and life update!Firstly here's my latest freelance work, it's a horror themed animated music video, that's based on a story called Dark Amelia by Sally O'Reilly.The song was written by Darla and the Blonde, and it was inspired by the story itself.We went down a very 'motion graphic' approach to the animation which makes a change for me! It was fun to work on. Collaborating with a writer and musicians was a great experience!Now as for the boring life stuff, some of you here will know I'm going to be moving flats soon. My housemates/landlords are moving out to their new house just before Christmas so we've had to flat hunt super rapido! Luckily we've found a place now and we're awaiting all the paper work etc. So I've got a super busy month ahead with the potential to not have Internet for a brief period of time because of this as well. So bit of a heads up there really! And

My deviantART StoryI was introduced to deviantART by a friend who is no longer active on here. I joined 10 years ago and it's been an amazing journey so far. I started off just posting mostly animé/game inspired drawings and fan art to get feedback from the community. It wasn't until many years of lurking that I finally started to open out and post in the forums. Over time I got to know more deviants and I made some great friends as a result. The only other site I was a real part of was legendofzelda.com, where I also made some great friends over the years!deviantART has grown so much over the years and the artists in every gallery on here is absolutely amazing. Initially it was more about the fan art and game art that I was interested in, and over time as I learnt more as a student and started seeing more of the world, my appreciation for every form of art grew with it. In fact I touch on many areas of art and design, did you guys know I did origami as well?

Using HTML on deviantARTHello!Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking. deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place? You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.Some basic htmlBold text: <b>insert text here</b> Result: Example textThis html code will work in: journal entries, group blogs, comments, artist's commen

How to draw during 365 daysBy the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey. It's okay to start simple!My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings? Stay originalOn my
7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better ArtistPractice, practice, practice. Gah.Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons. Artistically
Label Me Lesbian: A Guide to Types of Lesbians [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink]The following is an extensive guide to the different Labels a Lesbian may have. In my experience I have come across many Lesbians who just thought they were a Lesbian. This guide was at first for TheLesbianClub's Chatroom Classes, but I have decided that this could benefit not only the club but many people out there. If you are a Lesbian and questioning what type of Lesbian you are, then this guide is for you![Bullet; Pink] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Purple] [Pride] [Bullet; Purple] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink] LesbianLesbian is a term most widely used in the English language to describe sexual and romantic desire between females. The word may be used as a noun, to refer to women who identify th
Get Puzzle'd Community Contest! 10TH BIRTHDAY BASH GET PUZZLE'D COMMUNITY CONTEST You remember what it was like. Opening a dusty cardboard box, yellowed with age, found in Grandma's attic. Dumping the 500 puzzle pieces on the kitchen table. Striving for several tedious hours to complete a picture of assorted flowers in a vase, or a kitten playing with string. Filling time until your parents picked you up from dear ol' Granny's place. Boring. Well, this puzzle is nothing like that! We're taking a fun and innovative take on a classic puzzle game, to celebrate
How to beat procrastination (part 1)As I said on a previous submission, I'm planning to make some tutorials on the upcoming December. Before that, however, I feel like I can help on another subject, which comes before even starting your drawing: Procrastination. I mean, procrastination towards your own drawings.If you're not familiar with this word:pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|noun"the action of delaying or postponing something." Why am I talking about this? Well, a year ago I used to be a professional procrastinator. I've imposed the 365 Days of Doodles challenge to myself for this particular reason.While procrastination is to some degree a natural phenomenon and can’t be completely eradicated, you can use the following strategies to get in the habit of getting drawings done.Mind that these are not golden rules or such, just strategies that work fo
How to beat procrastination (part 2)Most of the excuses for not drawing is lacking of ideas. On part 1 of this journal I explained why I find it useful to keep a notebook with you, and to write down your ideas whenever possible. This second part is about developing the habit of drawing. Hope you find it useful! Create the habit of drawingFirst thing to know about creating new habits is that it works kinda like inertia law:"An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion."Which means that the more you postpone your drawings the more you'll feel like delaying them. This procrastination abyss can be endless. For instance, I didn't draw anything in 2013 until the end of August when I bought my fi
How to get noticed on deviantART!:faq56:I've had many people ask me this question so I'm going to elaborate the best I can. As the FAQ above states, to get far on deviantART you HAVE to give feedback to get it. It's almost virtually impossible for you to get noticed without doing any of that. I learned that after a year of being here. Browse ArtThis is something that you will have to do in your dA lifetime in order to find your inspirations and be able to learn new techniques. When on the front page of deviantART it's probably the most diverse amount of artwork you'll see! Ranging from pixels to sculptures, tattoos to anime to poems, there has to be at least one that can catch your eye! There are millions of deviants here and even more submissions! Try searching for artworks that please you. You can even have a randomized search by using stuff like the random d
