Artists Toolbox: MarkersArtists Tool Box: MarkersSo today I want to talk to you guys about one of my favourite colouring tools: markers. We've all seen them and used them, from the scented ones that some of us tried not to lick in grade 1 to the Crayolas that are everywhere to Sharpie Markers in the back-to-school section to the fancy markers that can only be bought in art supply stores. So here's what you need to know about markers The BasicsCheap or expensive, easy to find or not, markers can be easily broken down into 2 types: water-based and alcohol-based. For the sake of simplicity, I'm going to stick with 4 of the most common brands of art markers: Sharpies, Prisma Colors, Copics and Lyra Aqua Brush Pens. Of these, only the Lyra markers are water-based; the other 3 are alcohol based.Lyras, Copics and Prisma Colors tend to be double ended; one end tends to have a wider, wedge shaped tip and the other end typically has a finer tip or a brush. Sharpies are single ended

PE: Designs and Interfaces I - Gallery OverviewGallery DescriptionsWelcome to the Designs & Interfaces part of projecteducate's DeviantART Gallery Descriptions Month!Since this is a gallery with 21 categories and several sub-categories provided for 2 categories, there will not be one article, but three. A Gallery Overview, a closer look at Game Development Art and something about Common Misconceptions regarding submissions to Designs & Interfaces.What is Design anyway?This is a bit of a toughie. It is closely related to art, but at the same time couldn't be further away from it. Both art and design are visual media, but that's sort of already where it stops. For myself I found the simple distinction of art creating an emotional response, and of design telling me how to do something.Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it

Celebrating Deviousness - October 2014In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.Introducing ginkgografixHey there, my name is Anne—some people also call me CSS fairy - and I'm just a glitter spreading, CSS loving random person from Germany. DeviantART is part of my life since 9 years already. While I started with traditional and digital art, I am now doing kind of everything. I love baking, crafting (with plywood for example), designing and just giving new things a try in general. I am a communication designer, who just enjoys being creative in all ways possible.CSS Fairy Sculpture

PTSD: Life After TraumaWARNING: This article contains information about trauma and can trigger those sensitive to acts of a violent nature, especially terrorism. If you feel uncomfortable or are especially sensitive to these topics, please do not read ahead. Originally, when I told Aeirmid that i was going to write an article about living with PTSD, i was only going to give a typical overview with textbook facts that you have probably heard again and again and I thought, that wouldn't be fair to you. So, i decided to go more outside of my comfort zone In the hopes that it will help others come to terms with their own trauma and perhaps shine some much needed light in a dark place.My story of survival started back in 2001. I had just begun my freshman year at The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY. It was a typical day like any other, a very pleasant morning actually. The sun was shining and New York was bustling with activity. I was young, carefree and optimistic as I exited the subway
