dA love for everyone! #134 I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!Interviewed artist: Parororo :iconparororo: Tell us what defines you as a person.It's a tough question to respond, but I'd say that among the people that are around me, art has always been something that defines me strongly. It has influenced me when making new friends, finding new goals in life, and keeps me going daily. How did you find out about deviantART and why did you join the community?I joined a loong ago, back in 2002. I found it because it was new, it was like nothing seen anywhere else around that time on the internet. I joined along with some friends from an online oekaki board haha.:bulle
WHY YOUR MENTIONS DON'T WORK Hello everyone This journal contains very important information for all of us so I ask you to please share it so other people can see it and know this isn't a bug. Over the last month I've had trouble in sending mentions and possibly receiving them as well. I've posted two journals, one on August 5th and one on August 25th in which I tagged and featured people, but I was surprised and confused when people told me they didn't receive my mentions. WHY, I asked myself. I posted a comment on both the journals in which I copy-pasted all the people I tagged originally, but they didn't get the notification this time either. WHY, I asked myself again. Right after this I got around and a

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblinDo you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination?
