@YukoRabbitJapanese artist YukoRabbit's beautiful artwork is both passionate and incredibly detailed. With strong lines, forced perspective, and captivating characters, it's hard not to look twice at each of her digital paintings. She's able to draw you into the intricate lives of her attractive adolescent muses with her intriguing concepts. With a strong sense of movement, her work seems to dance around the page entangling both the viewer and the subject. The Rabbits are HereOverlap: Adolescent Divine Lust: Murasaki iro no Kuoria: <

Miscellaneous vs OtherOver the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories. While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other". The reason for this change is simple. The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree. We're also working on u

Featured Inspiration 2Since the spam issues from my previous journal have calmed down, I'm eager to move forward on a more positive note and continue to feature inspiration I find from fellow deviants The format I am leaning towards is 7 artists, 3 deviations each. Both considered lucky numbers and while I am not very superstitious, it doesn't hurt to put any bit of extra luck on my side! Plus 7 x 3 equals 21 and that better reflects my more immature mentality Like last time I will be featuring deviants in (username) alphabetical order to avoid playing favourites. Hard for me to pick where to start really because of all the people I've had the pleasure to meet or struck me down with a massive bolt of inspiration, so please don't feel left out... I will try my best to make other features Anyways enough for the verbal fluff, time for visual delicacies!:iconaurorawienhold: Aurora, a

Art History Project- Omar KhayyamOmar Khayyam, (Lit: "Omar The Tentmaker), was born, (circa 1051), at Nishapur in Khorassan, (A region in N.W. Persia). Omar was a very inquisitive boy, in possession of a good mind, and soaked up the education afforded by his father's prosperity, ...judging by his later achievements. Omar probably learnt his father's trade and became a tent-maker for a while. Omar travelled around his country and nearby areas visiting places like Samarkand and Isfahan, (Isfahan has some of the most beautiful Temples I have ever seen!, the entrance to the Main one has tiles of the most exquisite and colourful designs unrivalled anywhere in my humble opinion...), no doubt exchanging ideas and researching with some of those he met. He died in 1131 and is buried in the Khayyam Garden at the mausoleum of Imam Zadeh Mahruq in Nishapur. 728 years later, an English linguist, Edward FitzGerald, published, (in the sa

Thoughts on the 'Hobbit Cartoon Study'Much like the pin-up series I showcased last week, this was a little thought experiment I did during the 6 months I was absent. I was having a very hard time motivating myself to draw anything and this was something I tried to do for myself as a therapeutic exercise.One of the things that was tricky to deal with was the awkward hands. The Rankin Bass cartoon has very stylized grizzly hands which are drawn entirely counterintuitive to how I would naturally draw them. I frequently looked for specific hand gestures from the cartoon and used those to help draw them here. They presented quite a challenge.The other challenge was to try and illustrate backgrounds that the cartoon characters would be laid into, much like real cel animation. I wanted to mimic the cartoon as best I could and that meant rendering painted backgrounds. I had some new brushes I was trying out at the time and, to be honest, the backgrounds I came up with weren't quite the watercolor/inked hybrid of the 1977 movie.
