adamlack.comI've just re-launched my website, and I'd really appreciate it if you could have a browse and let me know what you think (There are some free desktop wallpapers to download too... !)adamlack.com
Wallpaper/Full resolution images?I'm thinking of uploading some of my work for full resolution download through the new 'Premium content' system here. I've already submitted one, Sunshine, to give an idea of what I mean.Any feedback on this would be hugely useful to me; such as what you think is a reasonable price, and whether you'd prefer just one full res JPEG, or a selection of common aspect ratios (ie, for wallpaper use). Also, whether you'd even consider buying them!As always, I would really appreciate any support, and if there are some helpful replies, they may be rewarded

Can I draw Anime/Cartoons well?This question is always being asked on DeviantART--mostly by young, aspiring artists who really think they want to become a great, professional anime/manga/cartoon artist when they get "good enough".The matter of the fact is that, no matter how much you try to be good at a style, regardless of how much you practice and how often you draw it--it'll never look right.UNLESSyou study realistic form and proportion first.Learn how the human body really looks and really works before you try to stylize it.The best way to do this is to find out if there are any Figure Study classes being held in your town or city. A lot of places will have these sessions where anyone can come in at a certain time and draw nude models that will sit and pose for any artist who attends. These are perfect for learning the realistic human form. As long as you draw them as you see them and try to figure out why things are the way they are.In short, figure studies are how artists dissect a human being wit
Regarding personal style.To anyone who is obsessively busy trying to find a style unique to them; don't. It seems to have become some sort of trend nowadays on dA, trying to "find a style", when really it is something quite ridiculous to be doing.If you compare it to handwriting, it's like worrying about how to make every single letter of the alphabet both beautiful and unique to you when your spelling and grammar leave a lot to be desired, while they are really the most important things to learn first. Sure having a pretty style to look at is nice, just like having a beautiful handwriting. But if all of your other artistic knowledge is falling behind, much like your spelling and grammar, the result will still be unattractive and your art will not reach the viewer in the way that you intended.So in short, focus on getting better, on gathering knowledge, experience, and practicing, not on finding your own style. Style will happen automatically. Not to mention the fact that if you're a good and experienced eno

The World of Macro (Bring back Macro)This newss article not only serves to feature some amazing macro deviations, but as a petition to bring back the Photography> Macro category!!! If you want this category back, then please this article, and lets show the administrators of DA just how many deviants are devoted to bringing this category back!!!Months ago the Macro category mysteriously disappeared off of Deviant Art, many were annoyed, shocked and furious to say the least. So why did DA decide to take away an extremely popular category? And more importantly
what other categories will they take away next????!?? Macro photography deserves its own category, it is in a class of its own! Macro photography lets us view the world differently, and allows us to see things like weve never seen before! After being introduced to macro photography, my vision of the world began to transform. Its important that macro photography doesnt just blend into t

Group Abuse: Killing our CommunitiesGroups! What a great feature on deviantART. They kicked off last year and have been a huge success. Nothing but good has come from the groups system or has it? I can tell you that right now under the layer of hype lies a deep, dark problem that's slowly killing our communities, unknown artists, and our ART. I'm going to tell you my own story, then explain.I'm the founder of a large photography group here on deviantART. We've been using the groups system since the very first day they officially released. At the time of this writing, we have almost 3600 members. We've grown rapidly to become one of the largest and most successful photography groups around. As a founder, it's always interesting to see how your group is doing. It's a lot of fun to look at statistics, new members, submissions, and comments. Until now.We had an excellent discussion in our group chat debating the following issues. Together, we came up with these issues and decided to raise them to the communit
Writing Better Character DescriptionWriting Better Character Descriptionby Michael D. BjorkWe writers have a particularly tough job: bringing nonexistent people (our characters) to life in our readers’ imaginations. While it’s never easy, we usually accomplish this magic by writing each character with two qualities in mind:1) Their personality2) Their physical appearancePersonality is usually expressed through characterization, and appearance through physical description. Sounds pretty simple, right?But there are two things I’ll suggest today: first, that description needs to do more than just craft appearance, and second, it’s good characterization, more than anything, that’s the key to conjuring vividly imagined characters.Character Description:Let’s take a look at the following example.1) When I entered Mr. Smith's office, he stood from his desk and smiled. He had a big nose, brown eyes, and short, blond hair. He wore a dark suit. I shook his hand.What
