Riemea - MV of Digital ArtRiemea - MV of Digital Art by Riemea
I'm a Digital Art Mentor Volunteer at seniormentors, and I'd like to take the opportunity to tell you a little about myself, and how I can help you with digital art!
My name's Kathi, I'm from Munich and I love art, music and literature. My main focus in art is digital art, but I also enjoy doing traditional art and crafting. On dA you can find me hanging around groups like dAWishingWell, deviantHEART, and CRCommunityProjects.
I have always been fascinated by digital art, and it started to be my main focus as soon as I got my own graphic tablet back in 2010. My strong suit is painting portraits, but there's the occasional "whole person" thrown in as well. I'd be happy to help you with things such as composition, choosing colours, shading, different drawing/painting techniques, anatomy, and using references. I mostly use Photoshop Elements, but I'm familiar with Photoshop CS2, gimp, Krita and Painter X as well.
MiloticScale - MV of Fractal ArtHello, deviants!MiloticScale - MV of Fractal Art by MiloticScale
Allow me to introduce myself here as a Fractal Art Senior Mentor Volunteer for seniormentors.
This journal will outline the best way to enter a menteeship with me and how I will be able to help you.
I'll begin with a small personal introduction. My name is Jonathon; I'm 20 years old and live in the state of Tennessee of the United States.
I spend my days as a software developer for an individual online learning facility and my spare time as a fractal artist! I've been making
fractal artwork for about 2 years now, and I commonly surf DA for tips and tricks whenever I feel like refining my work. I hang around the
:#Aposhack: chat room on dAmn a lot for advice and param pongs. I'm very involved on DA with several groups (see my comment signature
for a full, updated list). See the "About Us" tab for each of those groups to see my role within each.
I am an MV for Fractal Art because I feel as though I am able to pass on knowledge of creating fractal art and help

GrimFace242 MV for LiteratureOkay, so the Grim one has taken on another project. I know, I know. It's awesome! I've decided to join up at seniormentors as a Mentor with a focus on Literature. What I excel at is planning and plotting. So that's what I'm offering as a service. If you're a deviant that is looking for assistance in plotting out their short story or novel. You know, someone to shoot ideas off, a double check on character motivation, is there enough story in your story, will your subplot overtake your main plot. That kinda stuff. Not beta reading/proofreading; to be clear. Just to give forewarning, I'm a serial plotter but I'm quite willing to tone it down to help others out.GrimFace242 MV for Literature by GrimFace242
If you would like to engage in a mentor session with me I can be reached in one of three ways

The Elements of Roleplaying: A Reference GuideSo you've decided to delve into the world of roleplaying, but you have no idea where to start.The Elements of Roleplaying: A Reference Guide by catluvr2
Congratulations, this article is for you.
Step 1: Decide on what sort of roleplayer you want to be.
Tabletop roleplaying can be quite different than chat roleplaying, so I'm going to focus on chat roleplay for now. (This also works for roleplaying on Tumblr, so keep that in mind.)
Step 2: Know your partner(s).
If you're the sort of person who likes to take control of a situation, let your partners know this. There's nothing worse than having a complex storyline set up in your head, only to have a partner ruin it by going off in a completely different direction. Trust me, I've had it happen to me before, and it wasn't pretty at all.
Step 3: Decide on your universe/fandom.
There are times when crossovers happen, but to start off with, it's probably best to stick within your canon 'verse. After all, it's hard to explain why a character does what they do when they aren't "at home
The Art of CritiquingThe Art of CritiquingThe Art of Critiquing by JenFruzz
You are probably (hopefully!) already aware that deviantART allows users to comment on each other's deviations. What you may or may not have noticed is that dA also has a handy feature called Critiques. Critiques are a Premium Member feature that allows users to leave in-depth observations of your work in addition to a ratings system. A critique allows the artist to receive specific comments about their work.
Before we begin, let’s take a look at what deviantART designed the critique system to be:
“Critique is designed to be a thorough evaluation of a Deviation on a number of different qualities. It is intentionally designed to inspire thoughtful and constructive feedback from committed Artists and Enthusiasts to fellow Artists requesting meaningful responses to their artwork.” ( :faq95: )
Generally speaking, a critique is not in
Art Criticism: The Real DealHow many of you think of art criticism in a more or less negative way?Art Criticism: The Real Deal by Katmomma
I read an incredible book by Terry Barrett called "Criticizing Art" for My Visual Cultures & Critical Practice class in my senior year of college. This author and the class has enlightened my view of what art criticism is and the components of it. And I'm posting this here on dA to share it with you.
This community is part of the bigger Art World, believe it or not. And every person who posts a comment on an artwork is practicing a form of art criticism. You don't have to be some snobby Art Historian from New York to be an Art Critic. Critics come from many different backgrounds- poets, musicians, historians, artists and everyday people- using what they write about to add to communicate what is "likeable" to the community. Critics are what drive the popularity of artwork- which essentially drives the interest in the communities they work in as a whole.
So here are some REAL Art Wor
