Happy Friend's DaySo today is Valentine's day, which is actually called Friend's Day (Ystävänpäivä) in my country.
Friend's Day is more about remembering all your friends, not just your boyfriend/girlfriend/whatever.
And I prefer it this way, cause friends are a wonderful thing and deserve to be celebrated too. And this way singles don't need to feel left out.
So Happy Friend's Day or Valentine's Day to all my dA friends!
I'm so happy I've made some amazing friends here who support me in many ways. It means a lot to me!
I'd love to hear how this day is celebrated in other countries?
Also thanks a million for all the birthday wishes and gifts I got last month!
You are all amazing!
Sorry for my inactivity in dA lately, and for all the unanswered messages! I'll try to get to them asap.
I haven't even done almost any photography lately. I've just been trying to do many life changes lately and had a lot on my mind.
But I won't bore you with that.
Just know that I aprreciate all

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.
80 Point Giveaway and Art Features!(Closed)Winner announced! :iconxlaurenx13: Congratulations!
(winner was chosen through a random number generator)

Thank you everyone for entering! I'm very grateful for everyone's support for our fellow artists!

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!
When you're not improving

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.
