Thanks + EADHey guys, first of all thank you to sugarislife28, SparklyDest and Minato-Kushina for sending me valentine cards Then I wanted to announce that I won't be hosting the Emoticon Appreciation day this year. If anybody is interested please write it in the comments, if more than one deviant is interested then we will have to figure out who hosts it or if they could host it together.

My deviantART StoryIt all started when I was searching for wallpapers in 2005, I joined the Site to be able to Fav the deviations since I usually searched for them in school. I wasn't an Artist and also not really interested in Art, I was more interested in Cars. After a while I discovered more and more of deviantArt and my interest in Art started to grow, I started to draw portraits and then I discovered the Emoticon Community and I learned how to create Emoticons. This was the time when I started to be active on dA and participated in the Community. I met many incredible deviants in that time, sadly many of them aren't really active anymore. :c But the most important part of my deviantArt story is meeting the love of my life. We had the first interaction in 2008 after I received my first DD for one of my Emotes. Our friendship grew over time and we already wanted to meet each other some years ago, but it somehow didn't happen. It was different t

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
