My favorite tutorialsHere is a list of all the tutorials that i used to learn from. As many of you already know, i am a self taught artist. But the name "self-taught" is a little misleading, since i wasn't quite alone, i referenced and learned from many tutorials. So i am a tutorial-taught artist
Though some are from other sources, most of them come from artists on deviantart. Some aren't even tutorials but images that by looking at them, i get a better understanding of something.
They have shaped who i am as an artist. You can probably see their influence on my art to this day.
So without further ado, here they are.
One of the first tutorials on colors i looked at, and one of the best

What are adoptables? (The informational journal)FAQ: Adoptables
What are adoptables?
The 'adoptables' you are seeing in this group are mostly animal, hybrid and human designs artists use as personas or characters. They have no physical presence. They are mainly artistic designs of all sorts sold for points (a strictly dA resource), trade or real cash.
How do I sell them? What are the rules for adoptables?
The designs sold are like selling pieces of artwork - they have to be one of a kind and not a copy of someone else's design. If you sell a design that is (or is almost like) somebody else's design, you can get banned from dA for art theft.
To sell an adoptable, it has to be a design you made that you are willing to sell to someone else for the trade of your choice. You can trade it for one of their adoptables, sell it to them for points/money or even give it away for free. You may do this as long as you m

WE ARE BACK IN FULL OPERATION!!! Oh, I know, crazy! Right?
It's been about two years since this group was closed down for maintenance! Unbelievable! About time to get back, am I right?
The long story short, due to massive unforeseen difficulties and setbacks a number of things went wrong in this, in addition to real life catching up with the Founder and Co-Founders alike both in good and bad, plus many other things on top of it, so we weren't able to return until now.
The good news is though that the group has now been officially opened back up, and is fully operational once again! Can we get a YEAAAAH for that!?
As for this day onward, new members are able to join and new deviations can be submitted again (within the usual limits)!
:iconcarapau: is alive and well, simply too busy to be around much. You can still approach her if you have any questions or anything, though!
In the honor of the event and to give our massive thanks for you, our dear members, for s

Digital Hacks #3: Add Copyright Information in PsIn this article, I will be showing you how to add Copyright and Descriptive Information to your files in Photoshop. This is useful for when we publish images online and want them to retain information about their source regardless of where they end up on the web.
Photoshop and some similar image-editing applications can detect the copyright information in an image and display it as soon as the image is opened. Copyright laws give the creators of images certain rights to exclusively publish and distribute their works. Adding appropriate information to your images is one way to help protect your work.
