If You've Got an Art BlockI've had an art block since May 2010 and it's finally starting to defrost.
I've found that one thing that's helping me defrost my art block is just forcing myself to draw. :XD:
I set up a 17x11in canvas in Photoshop CS5 and start doodling. I tell myself "Fill this blank page with stuff." I experiment with new brushes, brush sizes, and colors. I also experiment with color application. So if you have an art block, just open a Photoshop doc and force yourself to draw. (Or um, if it's easier or you don't have a tablet to work with, bust out a piece of paper and doodle little sketches.) Anything that comes to mind. It also helps if you maybe narrow yourself to limitations if you're feeling stumped. For example, I limited myself to Anomalies characters so I've been drawing them a lot and focusing on my story as a result giving me inspiration to draw and create more.
It's pretty fun. I don't think about anatomy errors and issues. I don't focus too much on sticking within the lines of my doodl
Drawing ResourcesHey people,
I started this journal because I had been dissatisfied with my art skills so since May 28, 2011, I've been on the hunt for material to help me out. PLEASE NOTE: This journal gets UPDATED! So check back every few months or so for anything new! And if you find something useful, please suggest it! If you have your own collection of resource links, please share them! :D And if you're browsing this list and encounter a site link that no longer works, let me know. :)
ANNOUNCEMENT! My journal is becoming too big. So soon in the future, I will be making a PART 2 to this journal. Some of these sections will be moved there, and the ones left behind will be expanded upon!!! Please continue to leave suggestions. Let me know what has helped you out. I would love to know.
UPDATE!  December 29, 2014: Instead of making a PART 2, I will be moving all current information found here and will be making all future updates on my website, 
You want to make a Flash Dress Up Game?But you're not entirely familiar with Flash? WELL FEAR NOT! Deviantart supplies A VAST AMOUNT OF TUTORIALS from people who know and have some fair amount of understanding of what to do.
So I'll help you get started by supplying some information and also recommending a couple very nice and informative tutorials about Flash. Plus don't be discouraged if you suck at drawing in Flash, I provided a fair amount of information for an alternative solution at the end!  
What you need:
- Flash* (any kind of Flash where you can write Action Script 2.0... NOT Action Script 3.0, these tutorials cover AS 2.0. Flash is not a free program (legally). You can obtain Flash at
- Time
- Patience
*If you're wondering what kind of Flash I use, I'll tell you. I use a super old school Flash that does the job juuust fine. It's called Macromedia Flash MX, also known as "Flash 6.0 r25" Yuuuup, really old. I've had it since junior year in high school (approx. 5 years). I have Flash Pro
Tips on How to ImproveMy good friend, Draethius, had posted a DA journal a long time ago (almost a whole year) that he has long since removed that was about how he didn't feel like a real artist and wasn't sure how he could improve. So I wrote him an essay lengthy Note in reply. And I kind of forgot about it since it happened along the time when I was throwing a tantrum over that one chick I call Otto.
But I was going through some documents from my Back Up files and found the document I wrote to Drake and decided "Hey, I should post this! :D" Granted, there's moments when I kind of go off on a tangent, but I think this could be helpful to someone...maybe?
Here it goes:
I can't tell you how to feel like a real artist, but most cases, artists are never satisfied with their work and are constantly pushing themselves to get better. This is a good thing, otherwise we'd never improve. But it can also be a bad thing, if you push yourself too much, you can essentially burn out. So
My Color TutorialsHey guys,
I spent a few days writing these tutorials for you so I hope you take the time to read them and maybe even learn some stuff from them:

You can download both tutorials in a ZIP here:
I also shared some helpful resources in the comments, so be sure to try them out:

Lastly, I shared some extra material, some tutorials that helped me figure out my own path:

Again, I hope all this is helpful to you. :)
Other helpful stuff I've written:

And here's my resources posted to DA:…

Although... This and some journal I wrote are getting most of the faves I've been receiving for the past few months. I kinda feel like I must suck at art or something since people don't favorite my art nearly as much as stock images or resources that I post.


The image explains everything!! No-strings-attached stock for you guys to use! :)

DOWNLOAD TO USE! :) :dance:

You MAY:
:bulletgreen: Use these frames in any way you so feel like.
:bulletgreen: Alter the original images.
:bulletgreen: Use commercially.

:bulletred: Credit is not required but encouraged! From an outsider perspective, I always like to see what stock came from where. Like I said, credit is not required, you can download these and just forget who the source of them was, lol. But if you'd like, please link back to this so others can find them. ;)
:bulletred: You DO NOT have to contact me and share what you've made with my stock. Although, I would love to see it! :)

And if you like this stock package, please favorite it! Even if you don't plan to use it. :)

I assembled these frames for one main reason: I needed some frames for a video I'm compiling.
:star: EDIT: If you want to see how I used the frames, you can see them in the video at this link:…

I was browsing DA for some cool Frame Stock and damn it all to hell, so many stock images with "Credit me" or "Personal use only" blah, blah, blah, and it just pissed me off. Royally pissed me off. The main reason I got pissed off is what nerve do those people have to want credit for photos of someone else's art? I mean think about it. Someone else made those frames, all you do is take a photo of it and bam, it needs to be credited to you? I don't think so. Anyway, I digress.

I decided to take some pictures of some of my cool frames at home for people to use. And yes, one of those frames belongs to the mirror that hangs behind my desk in my studio (which you can easily see in this photo montage:… ). I love the ornate and extravagant frames. I always wonder who has the patience to sculpt all those intricate designs, lol.

Not sure if anyone would want to use them commercially as they're not 100% the best photos in the world, but oh well, I'll leave it up to you people. :XD:

If you like these frames, you'll probably like some of these stock frames as well:

No problem, I simply can't take credit for something I didn't create and I think it's ridiculous that some stock photographers think they're totally in the right to do so themselves. :shrug: I also post photos to use a free stock to MorgueFile, I linked to it somewhere :XD: but if you're interested I can try to find the link. Anything on MorgueFile has the free license where you can use and alter what's there and are not required to credit the author so it's totally a useful site if you're not already aware of it.

Thanks for being awesome and not retarded like 99% of everyone else on DA! I usually don't ever bother even looking at stock or resources on here anymore because of the bullshit million rules & required this & that everyone has. I'm sick of having so much of my time wasted by it. Anyways, thank you for providing awesome stuff like this & not being lame about it. I will be sure to share links to you so others can find you, too.
Anomalies13 Featured By Owner May 11, 2015  Professional
Yeah, the way I see it is all I did was capture a 2-d digital compilation of something that exists in reality. If I didn't make it or have any say in its creation, then the subject in the photo is not mine to claim. It'd be like someone making a sculpture of one of their artistic concepts or original characters then selling it and then the person who bought it taking a photo of it and then putting the photo up for people to use but tacking on all these dumb rules like they own the concept, but they don't. Just because you took a photo of something doesn't mean that item is yours, or that photo. I took a photo of one of Salvador Dali's paintings, now should I put it up as stock and saying people have to credit me? No! I didn't make it. I just translated the item into a digital form. I have a lot of feels about this subject, lol. I could just rant on and on about it. But bottom line, for me anyway, if I didn't create it myself, I'm not going to demand people credit me for taking a 2-second photo of it.
