Our Admin, who art in cyber-space, Hallowed be thy UserName. Thy Avatar come. Thy FAQ be done, On my computer as it is on the server. Give us this day our Daily Deviation. And forgive us our rants, as we forgive those who rant against us. And lead us not into policy violation, but deliver us from llamas. For thine is the perl script, and the power, and the root password, forever and ever. Amen

Siren Song by LadyAway
Siren Song
I promised myself not to draw humans until I finish my anatomy studies, but... a siren is not a human, technically..?

This was actually an exercise about setting proper values on the start and it came out pretty nice—I didn't have to add any Overlay or Multiply, Color worked great on its own. I used no reference for this (my first woman with a face of a woman :3). To sum it up, my skills went up just after learning about bones. Can't wait to see what happens when I finish with muscles!

By the way, siren song in my definition is that little voice in your head that tells you do to something when you were actually planning to do something else (more productive, usually). More, you hear it and start to believe you really want to play a video game instead of studying something important for your artistic development. But is it really what you want to do?
Stay creative by LadyAway
Stay creative
I noticed I suffer from "paralysis by analysis". I've been learning a lot, and apparently I reached the point where I'm not able to start a drawing without careful planning. It kills creativity like nothing else. So today I used a bit of my precious free time and instead of studying the secrets of human pelvis, I painted this weird, unplanned creature. It's almost a speedpaint, took me 2 hours or something. It's not perfect. It's not beautiful. But at least it is.
Naked and proud by LadyAway
Naked and proud
I'm a bit tired of all these dragons made entirely out of scales, plates, horns, spikes, fins and other things like this. Where's the essence? Can a dragon exist without all these decorations? It was my attempt to create an undressed dragon, pure and naked. Looks a bit funny, doesn't it?
How many times you stopped what you were doing just to check your e-mail, dA, facebook, watch a funny clip on youtube, only because your task seemed too hard for a while? Sometimes you just want to take a break, but without admitting it to yourself. And if you try to fight it, you'll end up hating your task more and more.

I found a nice workaround for this. Anytime you feel tired/bored/discouraged, come to posemaniacs and draw a few random poses. This way you won't waste your time, you'll take a break and when it gets too hard, well, maybe your main task will appear more attractive..? And remember—every sketched pose makes you better at creating your own!
