A Guide to the Subcategories of Fan ArtGalleries Month
Hello and welcome to the Fan Art section of the galleries description month Basically, I'm here to give you a play by play of how the Fan Art sub categories are structured and what belongs in them. On August 30th, STelari will be giving you a guide to Traditional Art and Fan Art miscategorizations and Gwendolyn12 will be giving you a guide to Anime/Manga and Fan Art miscategorizations, so I will not delve too deeply into those here. So let's delve into the wonderful world of Fan Art!
What is Fan Art?
Fan Art is the Level 1 category found on the category tree. Fan Art is currently defined as art containing copyrighted characters or concepts. This basically means art of characters, creatures, locations, items, etc that are under copyright and were NOT originally created by you. But the word concepts is also important here; characters created for a specific fandom also have a home in Fan Art, since they build on t
What is a Digital Doll? Galleries Month
As part of the gallery description month, I'm going to be introducing the Digital Dolls subcategory (and it's subcats) to all of you. This will include a brief description and a few examples from each category.
Digital Dolls is located in the Customization category. Customization is the gallery that is dedicated to forms of art that let you modify or individualize things; wallpapers to change up your desktop, avatars and icons to change your dA presence, emoticons to enhance the chat experience and digital dolls. Digital Dolls are created by customizing a base body, created by yourself or someone else, hence it's home in the Customization category.
Digital dolls traditionally had a hard pixel edge and a transparent background but dolling has deviated away from that in recent years. The transparent background used to be important for people that would adopt dolls (display them on personal web pages with a link back to the creator) so that a
All the updatesdA stuff first: The Caption Contest winners will be announced as soon as I have all of them; I am waiting for just one more person to get back to me and then we'll be good to go
Fan Art Friday may not happen this week. You will however get 2 Project Educate articles tomorrow for the Galleries Month. One will be on Digital Dolls and the other will be on Fan Art These are scheduled, so watch your inboxes
Personal stuff that sort of impacts dA stuff XD
I start a new job tomorrow morning I do not know what my schedule will be as of yet, so things may be a little slower on my end until I do know. I also fried my phone, so I won't be able to check dA from my phone until my new one arrives, sometime between tomorrow and the end of next week

Creating your own MangaIntroduction
You have a great story, a bunch of characters and you want to create a manga. However, where do you start? Do you have it Left->Right or Right->Left? How should you publish it (*note: some publishers may have additional requirements/restrictions)?
The process is pretty much the same for any graphic progression such as comics.
Luckily, there are a great number of tutorials to help you on your way.
A storyboard is a panel or series of panels which detail the sequence of significant events in a planned scene, i.e. a rough sketch coupled with some words to describe the actions in the scene.
At this point you'd need to have an idea of whether you are making a left->right or right->left manga.
Photoshop tutorial- PS basics 4I'm back with my journal tutorials for Photoshop. I didn't post any new journal tutorial in a while. Anyway, my previous tutorial you can check here. I'll describe some Photoshop basics for everyone who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: Tilt-Shift, Customizing brush 2, Lens Flare, Mask Tool,.
If you wish to see images in full resolution then simply click on the images below (they are big 1920 x 1080 px). I used Photoshop CC here, so some things may be different in lower PS versions. But most of things may be the same in all PS versions. I'll make even more tutorials like this, so stay tuned. And if you like it, then you can fav this article. Thank you and enjoy. I hope it's helpful. More tutorials by me you can see in feature below.
PE: How to Scan and Adjust ImagesTutorial Time: How to scan and adjust images on Photoshop!
Hello everyone, welcome to this tutorial article of PE week!
well, you know, there is this youtube channel where there's lots of videos regaring tips, tricks and general advice for artists, and it is the best I've seen of the kind. But sadly, it is only in portuguese - hence why cinyu came up with the great idea of getting me to translate one of their videos!
I decided to pick up this one regarding scanning and adjusting images on photoshop, because that is one of the most basic, yet worst parts for many traditional artists. This tutorial is mostly for scanning black and white works, so it'll be more useful if you're working on manga/comic pages or inked art, but I hope it'll give you some ideas and help out in general on how scanning works.
I'll be translating the most important parts of the video, along with screenshots. Let's get started!
Things you'll need:
When It's HardHi folks! I realized in my most recent round of blogs that I've been a little quick to tell you all to put on your grown up panties, but this one is going to be a little different. Making art can be one of the most exhilarating things you'll ever do, but (and this is from personal experience also) 80% of the time you're going to fail. You'll spill your ink all over that glorious drawing. Oil from your hands will permanently stain only the portion of paper that was meant to remain a snowy white. Your computer's hard drive will crash or all your image files (all the WIPs especially) will get corrupted. You'll try something new and it just won't work out the way you envisioned. These things are the parts that aren't really spoken about enough, and so when they happen to us we assume that we're doing something terribly wrong. I'm here to tell you that we all go through these things and there's always a solution!

Scanning And Photographing A/M WorksIntroduction
A traditional artist faces a great challenge after finishing an artwork. How do they get it on their computer to upload and show the world?
There are two main options: Scan or Photograph. Both of these come with a horde of challenges and this article is to offer a starting point for the artist to experiment and find the best solution for their art.
There are a number of type of scanners, the most common domestic peripheral being the flat bed scanner. This article focuses on using a flat bed scanner and not a wand or other type of scanner.
First things, the scanning bed must be as clean as possible, clear off dust and pet hairs before attempting to use and make sure the scanner is on a stable surface for scanning. Some scanners will be sensitive to direct sunlight being on the outside, if you find that your artworks get a strange bright spot, do check that section of your scanner isn't being exposed to direct light.
A word on DD SuggestionsIt's already in my guidelines, but the past couple of months worth of suggestions make me think this needs to be explicitly stated. Art that used references in its creation needs to have the references credited or else I will not DD it. Since November I have received nearly 50 photorealistic fan art suggestions with no references credited. I don't want to have a blanket no to photorealistic DDs but it is obvious when a reference is used to create that realistic look and it is only fair and honest if that reference is credited. It also keeps accusations of theft and tracing down, which in turn, keeps everyone happier.
So if you see an awesome photorealistic fan art piece that you HAVE to suggest but it lists no references, can you kindly ask the artist, politely, about references before suggesting it? That way credit is given where credit is due and the chance of them getting DD increases, so everyone wins
