I got a job!Hi,I got a job, finally! Not my dream one, but everyone starts somewhere, not everyone is lucky enough to work in their field what they have studied. Eventually, I will get there as well!I have loads of paperwork to do, they require many stuff, and I have to deal with everything till the end of next week. If all goes well, the week after that I will start my training! So exciting!I will be busy, and exhausted possibly. So I will not be so active on dA nor on other sites for a while, I believe.Which is sad, as I just started to get so many awesome feedback and followers on Instagram! I will try to not neglect photography but priorities change over time. I had enough resting for more than half a year. Now it's time to work! Tell me how are you doing, what's up with you?

Articles on holdHi there,As you may or may not know, I do features. I love making them, hunt for deviations and discover talented artists. I don't post any regular ones, except for two groups.The lovely Kaz-D allowed me to collect top submissions from each folder at Abstract-and-Surreal at the end of each month. I've been doing that since August, 2013. My taste and knowledge in Abstract and Surreal Art in general has improved tremendously. I am still not a pro, I'm barely scrathing the surface of these paths of photography with my works, but I am enjoying picking out submissions to feature. Due to personal matters however, I cannot focus on that task at the moment. I feel like my articles have been a bit off lately, not because of the deviations of course! I just feel like it's not fair for the artists and for the Group of I'm doing it without my absolute attention. So for a while, articles will be on hold. Same goes for "my" Group, Through-a-Lens, the montly features will be al

How to: AnatomyHuman anatomy is, for sure, one of the hardest things to draw. But at the same time it's one of the most interesting things to draw, because... hey... we love making characters, and it's nice if they at least look a bit like a human being. I'm still far from perfect at drawing the human body, yet I've accumulated some very useful tips, tricks and websites.Good exercisesDrawing from lifeDrawing from life is awesome!Look for life drawing classes in your environment, or if they're not available; ask your friends to pose for you. Go have a drink in the city when the weather is nice, and sketch people passing by. There's nowhere you learn more about human anatomy than by observing and sketching real people. There's only one downside to this; dynamic poses are tricky, as it's hard for any model to hold a difficult pose for a long time. And no... drawing (nearly) naked people in a drawing class isn't awkward. I

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblinDo you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong.
