Artists Toolbox: Digital Tutorials and Fur BrushesArtists ToolboxKovoWolf
Work With The Best
As a Digital Artist our world of creativity comes with a wide variety of tools at our disposal. Here you will find a list of tutorials that will help you with your Digital Art. Whether it's with backgrounds, details, or just brushes.
Why Should I use Tutorials For My Digital Art?
Digital Art is becoming increasingly popular for artists transitioning from traditional art to another medium. It's a medium that has a wide variety of options available to every artist out there and that's why it's so appealing ( among other long listed reasons )! Tutorials are essential but how do you know which one to choose?
Who's The Artist? This might seem like a silly question but it's important to look at the artist in which the tutorial is created from. Does their tutorials exhibit an array of skill that will be helpful to you? Is it clear and concise? Does examples of their own art display
Silver Soldering ToolsArtist's ToolboxAryiea
Silver soldering is one of many different types of soldering, and is a commonly used technique in jewelry-making. There are many different tools that can be used for silver soldering - I will go over the basic tools that I use in my soldering endeavors, but there are certainly a lot more than I will be able to cover in this article!
The first and most obvious "tool" in silver soldering is the solder itself. Silver solder is just that - it is silver alloys that are specifically created to melt at certain temperatures in order to be perfect for varying soldering jobs. The silver solder that I use comes in sheets & is cut into small chips in order to be used. There are different 'levels,' if you will, of solder - most commonly called Hard, Medium, Easy (and I sometimes use Extra Easy).
The difference between the 'levels' is the temperature at which they each melt. Hard solder melts at the hottest temperature, and Extra Easy at th
PE: 10 DIY Art Materials (Halloween Special!)Artists ToolboxBansini
I'm Bansini , and I'm going to be linking you to great tutorials that explain how to create 10 different DIY art materials. This is super useful when:
you need art materials fast but the store's closed,
the materials you need are really expensive,
you just want a quick trial of the medium,
the material is not available in your vicinity and you'd have to order it online
you need something cheap, quick and easy for Halloween!
I've got a 'Halloween' section for each one, which tells you how they can be of use during the season of scares. Without further ado, here they are!
10. Sticker Gum
I've seen a lot of artists make stickers, but sticker paper can be very expensive and sometimes it doesn't last too long. Use these instructions to create your own, depending on how much you'd like them to stick!
My version: I learnt this one during KG summer camp.
First, you draw your design on either a piece of paper
5 Tools for Photographing JewelleryArtists ToolsKaz-D
There are quite a few photographs on DeviantART that depict Jewellery and in particular Jewellery photography is popular within the Artisan Crafts and Still Life galleries. So here are some basic tips to capturing your Jewellery at its best whether you want to sell your products or just show them off..
I've recently used one of these to do some commercial photography and they work quite well. They're great for photographing small items on white backgrounds and having that clean, sharp commercial look. For those that haven't used them before, Lightboxes are translucent surfaces illuminated from behind which are designed to highlight the shape laid upon them in high contrast. Think about those boxes used to highlight X-rays in a hospital - just like that. They can be fairly decently priced and you can pick up bargains on places like Ebay. There's also a great article talking you through how to create your own. Check it out
Inspiration: Art websitesMany people asked me about which sites I use (or used) to learn and keep myself updated about art. So I decided to make a list with art websites that offer tutorials, advice, or other content that inspired me. Of course there are many other individual artists that inspire me greatly, but I've tried to keep this list to the ones that provide the community of advice and tutorials (otherwise I could go on forever).DamaiMikaz
I hope you enjoy it ^__^
A large collection of video tutorials, mainly on human anatomy. Very detailed, to the point, and with visuals that make it easy to follow even for non-native English speakers.
Tutorials. Human anatomy. Traditional art.

7 Poems in 7 Hours in 7 Days10 PM: 6/10/14SeeThroughtheMist
My mind is a blank sheet of paper.
It longs to be filled with words that, when strung together, creates this masterpiece. Whether it is the definition of Chemistry vocabulary, examples for Algebra, or even a recipe from Culinary. I want and wish so desperately to make something happen, but I can't. I suppose I have writer's block again.
All I know is that there is a tingling in my fingers and a feeling in my breast that will go unsatisfied. That I will miss these cramps in my hand and the burn in my eyes as I keep going, keep writing. Yet it seems that, like this piece of paper, it just won't fill unless I make it.
I have black-stamped words flowing in my blood stream full of ink and I am blinking similes as my tears carry metaphors; yet I smile with personification at the horrible feeling of the thumps of onomatopoeia in my chest because I know that even though I'm drowning in my own question marks, I breathe exclamation points and- like this piece of fucking pap

it’s six-seventeen in the morning
and the water is just getting hot again
(my mother wakes up at ungodly hours)
and as i wait to turn on the shower,
i catch my own reflection
looking back at me.
and i take this time to look in,
instead of merely glancing.
light azure cotton assures me i’m in shape
before i remove it over my hair
looking like a bird’s nest
combined with everest.
i drop the shirt to the tile
and run my hands over my torso
north, flowing like the nile river.
my brown skin doesn’t move against the traction
and i suppose that means it’s tight to the muscle
or the bone, or whatever it is
(i was never good with science or
biology or really physical education.).
but my eyes run over my hair,
my own eyebrows, expressive
as they rise and fall. move and contort,
they're the main reason
that i've never been able to hide
how i feel.
or appear sad when i'm merely thinking.
ears not all that wide
Mastering MeIn another universe,TwilightPoetess
I have green eyes, curly hair,
and paint smeared across all my fingers--
a war cry of artistry
instead of needlepoint scars.
The pooch of my belly
and the lumps in my thighs
might be from anything else
but the insulin I inject four times a day.
I grow up a child, not a parent,
the master of my destiny
not running away but running toward;
I'm a little bit taller
in spirit and stature,
in all the ways that matter
when darkness creeps under the door
and phantoms howl.
I shave my legs every day
instead of once every month
once every three months
once every only now and again when I feel like it
and I'm confident--
a goddess with the stars
around her neck
instead of pearls--
in any type of heel.
In another universe,
I still trust myself
behind the wheel of a car;
I have mastered winged eyeliner
and smokey lids;
I gave up chocolate
or whatever it is
that brings on migraines
just because I could,
just because it's better for me,
