Holiday Card Project 2012

It's back!  With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

PE: Photoshop Brush Primer
Photoshop: Brushes
There are a plethora of brushes available to you on photoshop. This guide will explain different brush settings, as well as how to install different brush packs here on deviantART. This guide is for pressure sensitive pen tablets. It is going to be much easier to do things with a tablet. Ones by Wacom are good, and you can get a bamboo for under 99$ USD. 
Basic Brushes in Photoshop
It's important to stick with default ones to learn all the settings. You can do so many things with the hard round brush. 
Bring up your brush palette in one of the following ways.  (note I am in CS3, so the icons will look much older, but same thing. )

Writing Lesson: Character Traits
It's come to my attention as of late that there are a few traits that people give their characters for no other reason than making their character unique. I thought I would just ignore it, but then they started popping up everywhere. I mean everywhere. I looked through the deviations in a group yesterday and saw reoccurring "traits" that make me want to tear my hair out. So this handy guide is here to tell you what's been done to death and when (if ever) it's still okay to use it. I am by no means a professional, but I certainly hope you'll take some of this to heart.
Please keep in mind that these are all just opinions, really. I am not telling you that you can't do these things! (Not that I have the authority to do that anyway). More than anything, these are just things to take into consideration when creating a character for a novel.
Physical Traits
Heterochromia. This is the condition where one's eyes are two different colors.

To all my watchers and friends (to whom I'm eternally thankful) :iconsadcraiplz::

I know this might be all of a sudden, but I'm leaving this account and transferring to a new one. I'm not leaving dA =). I'm moving due to personal reasons.

But I won't be deactivating this account, and I'll be keeping all of my formerly submitted deviations here. I won't be re-uploading my whole gallery here into my new one; only new deviations will be uploaded there. Sadly those new deviations won't be uploaded in this account anymore.  

So please go and watch my new account!


I hope to see you all there! MistressLien, signing off! :wave:

Hi there! I go by the name Lien!That's not my real name btw, but I'm more comfortable with that =D I am also called Sakura-hime Li, or just Sakura =D

I started drawing just three years ago, and now, it has become an addiction. Other than drawing I also like to read books.

I love Anime/Manga. It's why I started drawing in the first place. My most favorite manga artists are in CLAMP. They're so awesome!

I have a weakness for cute stuff! Chibi, plushies, even kawaii stuff!

I draw mainly as a way of expressing emotions. It's a stress-reliever for me. That is why my deviations sometime tend to be random; sometimes nice and sweet, sometimes melancholic and stuff. And I draw shoujo girls only for now because I don't know how to draw shounen and bishies. ='(

I randomly give llamas from time to time, especially when I'm bored~!

Feel free to look around! Who knows, you might find a cyber-cookie somewhere!

Welcome! And thank you for dropping by!
