And I'm back for the feature... oh my, I wasn't here for almost 2 weeks Sorry cuz of that, but I have to make ton of stuff for college, so I probably won't be here that much in next upcoming weeks. So I hope you can also wait for my new stuff which I draw (a little slowly...I paused process cuz of school ).
But I also have great news for you. One of my newest drawings which I still draw, I record. So soon you'll be able to see on our YouTube account whole process how I draw my paintings. From sketch till finished piece. But I guess I'll have to post it in few parts (cuz I already draw it more than 14 hours and I just started ).

Ah, I'm going to write here last news too, so I don't have to submit another journal... Well...so you remember that we had a little problems with our official website (with portfolio). These days I decided to fix that...I completely changed look of our site, so now it works perfectly. It has a huuuuuuuuuge slideshow in the background (and it fits to all screens), so when you want to go in menu, you have to click a MENU button in top left corner. Our

And the feature time is finished... I told that I'll feature first 80 deviants who post their or works by their friends under this journal. Well, I got many comments...again So, I decided to feature first 109 deviations here (if I wrote you that you have been featured, but you can't find yourself here, then please tell me. When I copied thumbs, then comments moved backward, so it's possible that I missed few thumbs here ). Hahaha... I think that this is the biggest number of thumbs which I posted here Enjoy

Thank you
Sorry because I didn't make this feature earlier...but I was kinda busy these 2 days, so I didn't came on dA (I was doing commissions and similar stuff). I have so many drawings now, that I don't know when I'll submit them all in my gallery...hahaha Hmm...I need to find a solution
Happy Birthday dadAnd we wish our dad happy birthday...yaaaaay. Like past year I decided to paint him a special drawing in the style which he likes and I wasn't able to finish it on time...nuuu (I did the menu for the game). He didn't see the piece yet, but you can see cropped WIP preview below (it's gonna be pretty colorful). And dad...you'll see full piece when I finish it...haha.
And like past year I'll also submit progress video, this time from this painting...sorry I didn't record sketch progress, again xD I don't have much space on my hard drive, so making the sketches take me a long time till I decide if I'll finish the drawing or not. So you'll see recordings from scratch from my other paintings.

PE: Traditional ShadingTraditional Shading
Hello. This is iDJPanda on the topic of shading!
When I usually start into the shading process of something, I always struggle to see which kind of technique I can use to give the piece of art the type of wow that I want. But just like anything, there are MANY ways to do it! This can help you use different shading techniques for different textures. I'm gonna give you a few different ways you can shade (Try to shake it up! ). If you have any other ways you shade, please feel free to tell me!
One of my favorite, in this technique of shading, you go against what all elementary teachers told you. You scribble! When you shade like this, you'll come out with something that looks like this.
Using circular motions, you generate different shades. Spending more time, swirling makes the certain areas you want darker, and the less you swirl makes the other areas lighter.
The sound of colours IXHey!
This month's topic:
The perks of being part of nature.
I hope you like it!

New Contest, New Kiriban [closed]•UPDATE 4/1/14
OC contest closed. Winner TBA
Sorry for the dead air on my page. Rough seas. Hopefully back to normal soon.
•UPDATE 3/14/14 and 3/20/14
I'll be out of town tomorrow through Wednesday of next week. Communication via comments, notes, and email will still be possible while I'm gone but I won't be working on, sending out, or posting any art (…or doing anything that would be a pain in the butt without a real keyboard). I've also notified everyone with an active commission with me of this individually.I'm back at my computer and regular activity has resumed.
This is also a reminder that my OC contest closes at the end of this month. There's still plenty of time to enter if you're interested and want some free art from me. (Details below.)
Happy Pi Day, everyone!

How to win at deviantART: The categories gameThe categories game refers to the switching or misplacement of deviations into less competitive or algorithm preferred submission categories in order to gain a ranking advantage in dA's popularity algorithm, generally as a means of appearing more frequently on front page and subsequently gaining greater exposure.
The categories game arises from the inherent category biases under dA's "fair exposure" policy. The goal of the policy is to "maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART. " What this boils down to is that certain categories have inherent ranking advantages and others inherent ranking disadvantages on front page. For more information on dA's fair exposure policy and how it leads to the categories game, consult my last journal on "How to win at deviantART: Exposed: http://roseonthegrey.deviantart.com/journal/How-to-win-at-deviantART-Exposed-289765235"

5%If you're reading this now, it means you're roughly in the 5%. Most people who go online to read about comics will end up reading previews and "top 10" lists--subjects we all, or course, enjoy. But the articles/blogs that critically analyze our industry are usually only read by two types: people in the biz whom are affected by this stuff, and the few readers who are interested in reading more than word balloons when it comes to comics.
And I'm not knocking people who don't care to read these articles. All readers are contributing to the industry with their buying power, and I'm thankful for them, even if they're not in the 5%. I admit, if I had a normal 9-5 job and a boss that was kicking my ass 5 days a week, I might not have the tolerance for these sorts of articles either.
That being said, I think we need more of these articles/blogs written from different points of view--more from creators especially. The 2010s will likely be r
