Injured


So I've had pretty hard pulsating pain for the past week and a half on my upper arm/shoulder/bicep area so I finally went to the doctor last Friday. I could've potentially sprained and/or have a small tear in my ligament / muscle. As a result they gave me a steroid shot on top of some really heavy duty medication ( that I can only discern as what it would feel like to be "high" ). They said if it doesn't heal up this week I'll need an MRI. We will see what happens.

Unfortunately it's my right arm. My drawing arm / writing arm / mouse arm. So sadly commissions will be a little slow as it's honestly really painful to sit at the computer and type let alone draw.

I apologies and I hope to get up ASAP.

In the meantime, enjoy this cookie!

Love To Watch


Inspired by wreckling and Moonbeam13 journals here is mine! "Basically, here are some people I've been watching for a long time on DA, people who I'll go on watching without question. I'm choosing to highlight a few, because they're amazing, but everyone on the list is super amazing, and you should totally watch all of them." - Moonbeam13







My List



Moonbeam13
I've known Danie ever sense I joined DeviantArt. Not on a personal level but I've always followed her throughout all the endeavors. It wasn't until I became a CV did I become more aquainted with her on a personal level and she's absolutely amazing. She's a heart of gold and a spirit stronger then diamonds! (maybe even made of diamonds. She is super woman after all )

wreckling
Trevor ( or trebborrr ) is one of those people, once you meet, will hold a true strong impression for ever! He's such an amazing person and deviant of deviantart! I actually had the pleasure of meeting him a few years ago at a devmeet! he was so nice and easily approachable. Trevor is fantastic and you all should go admire him!
BarristerHe'd been in town three weeks, on the case for two, and still only had a single lead. No one in Los Diablos was talking, outside of formalities. He was an outsider, and he knew they considered him as such, but for as much frustration as the town was causing him by not talking, there was one person in the town causing him even more trouble, the one he needed to meet, the one he couldn't even seem to find.
Franky Barrister never answered his door. Franky Barrister didn't have a phone. Franky Barrister always seemed to be on a bathroom break during school hours, but was never in the bathroom. On Fridays, Franky Barrister wasn't at school at all. The trouble was that the investigation the detective was working on was regarding the death of Alan Barrister—Franky's father. Everyone in town pointed the finger at Franky, and with his constant absence, the detective could see why. Franky was not doing anything at all to prove himself innocent, and if not for a complete lack of evidence, th

Juli is Sooooo sweet and so is her tea! Seriously guyz, you need to get her tea. It's amazing. AMAZING. She is so sweet and very easy to approach! Her heart is so pure and her personality is so inspiring! She brings a smile to your face even though you may be talking to her through a computer.

Starcanis
Snow has been one of my favorite artists ever sense I joined DeviantArt. Her work has always inspired me and her attitude is equally as infectious in being so positive and kind.
Aaru by StarcanisStar Wolf by StarcanisThat Radiance of Yours by Starcanis





balaa
Balaa is one of those deviants who, whenever looking at their latest works, you can't help but just drop your jaw at every single piece. True beauty and eye candy on top of that! Not only is her artwork breathtaking, but Balaa is equally as amazing! She's so sweet and extremely friendly to anyone who might inquire to her about anything! She's always willing to answer your questions and does so with such a big heart. One day, I hope to be as amazing as her in my artistic endeavors!

Therese has been a long time, well admired artist of mine. I followed her as soon as she joined. She's an artist I too admire for all her talent and skill. She's very easy to talk with and extremely friendly! Her artwork is just fantastic. Her tutorials are equally as amazing!

wolfmoonie
Moonie was one of the first people whom helped me get onto DeviantArt. She has always inspired me and motivated me to per-sue my passion in art. It was her strength, heart and motivation that really pushed me to where I am today and where I will surely go. Her artwork is fantastic both digital and traditional. I've been so fortunate to have met her in real life!

Angelo is just amazing. He's always friendly and has an aura of complete humbleness! It's hard to believe the owner of a company is so great and easy to talk to! I've had the pleasure of meeting him on several occasions.  Mostly through devmeets and a visit to HQ. He's very open to the community and to everyone! His smile is contagious!

Ron is one of a kind. He's genuine, humbling and will always ignite a spark of inspiration within you no matter what you are talking about. His ambitions and his own passions are infectous and easily inspires you! Ron is a fantastic person and is always there for the community and his friends.

He wondered how such a seemin

New Tablet


So I've been debating this for sometime now but I think I've come to the decision that I want to upgrade my tablet. I'm currently using a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch (small). I LOVE this tablet but I really want a step-up. I've been hesitant because I've been inwardly debating if my artwork was worthy of spending a good amount of money on a good tablet but what better way then to continue to hone your skills with a great device! I've got some money saved and have been saving little by little and I think I am at a good spot to where I can upgrade! So who better to ask then the DeviantArt community!

So, if you could get a tablet which one would you choose? What are you currently using?

What is a Mythical Creature?


A mystical, mythical, or legendary creature is a creature from mythology or folklore (often known as "fabulous creatures" in historical literature). Examples of legendary creatures can be found in medieval bestiaries. Many mythical creatures have supernatural powers (some good, some evil), powers that even in contemporary times have no physical explanation. In these cases the creatures bear more similarity to spiritual beings, such as angels, in religious thought. Often legendary creatures came to symbolize vices or virtues, or the power of good or evil. 
mythical creatures


Anthro Mythical Creatures


Being that a mystical or mythical creature is conjured by the soul imagination of it's creator, it can be truly anything however when you say mythical, it usually refers to a God or Goddess or a mythical creature that comes from lore or popular stories. Like Anubis in Egyptian beliefs.

There's some confusion as to whether Mythical creatures counts as Anthro. Why? Because they are usually more human then animals or don't meet the requirements to be considered anthro. However, most lore and mythical creatures are based of human figures / personification and has the attribution of human form. Therefore they would be considered Anthro.  Though they might have more human characteristics to them, they would still be considered Anthro under the basic definition of what Anthropomorphic art is.

Happy New Year!


Wishing you all an amazing new year! My how this one has flown by. It was filled with good and bad, but through all the experiences we tred through, we are better for it. I've learned a great deal of things this year. Especially with myself and my art. I look forward to some new and exciting things for this year! Hello 2015!

My DA Birthday


Wow, 11 years already. It's been an amazing ride and as I continue to grow so does this community. It's been a humbling experience being here thus far through everything it's gone through. Every change is a new beginning, one to look forward to and I will continue to move with the flow of this place and will give back all the great things it has given to me.

New Year. New Art.


Things are always evolving and changing. I myself am changing and evolving with my artistic skills and endeavors for my art. I am really excited for all the projects I have lined up, but more importantly, going to finish. I've had a few things on the side going on and I haven't really put much of it on DA just yet as I wanted to wait a little more for completion but I look forward to the new things I will be bringing to the table. I'm really excited to push myself further and harder with my art and more so, to get the projects I've been working on done!

I've felt uncomfortable with my skills and as a result, I feel like my art has suffered because of it. No more. I've been working pretty hard on the side with tutorials, walk throughs, painting, practicing and more practicing. I feel comfortable again and I have everyone of you to thank for that! You've pushed me to aspire to be something great. I will be uploading some new pieces very soon!

Artist Interview with the Talented natamon


Thank you natamon for allowing me the opportunity to interview you, and providing the community with some amazing feedback about yourself and your art! Without further adue, here is the interview and feature of the lovely natamon !





KovoWolf asks "Tell us a little bit about yourself! What first perked your interest in the Anthro community and Anthro art itself??"



:iconnatamon:

My name is Nat, and I live in Southern California. I like whimsical, macabre, strange things and sacred art. I think I found myself entering the anthro-community by accident, as I already really loved animals, and personifying them. Over the past 10 years, my love of animals has greatly increased, as did my amount of anthro and animal-themed works.


 

KovoWolf asks "What is your favorite medium to work with? Why?"



:iconnatamon:

My favorite medium is a mixture of ink, pencil and acrylics, together. I truly like the look that is achieved through layering these mediums, with ink and watercolor being a close 2nd choice.



Lord Hairless with Sherry and Pipe by natamon
 
 






I like whimsical, macabre, strange things and sacred art. - natamon



KovoWolf asks What is your favorite piece from your gallery? Why?"



:iconnatamon:

Wow, that is very hard to say. Art is a lot like children or pets-you really don't have *one fave*, you love em all! But, to try and pick one of my fave animal works, I say 'Bejeweled Cat 4'. I like the way the cat's eyes compliment the golden colors, and the balance of the background. It feels very regal, and I also feel this cat's look tells a hidden story...


 

KovoWolf asks How much of your art, would you say, is for aesthetic purposes (to be admired by the viewer), and how much is it about a message to the audience?"



:iconnatamon:

I'd say 70 percent is aesthetic and the remaining 30 is about a message. However, much of it
is also both.



Custom Pirate Ghost Cat by natamonGrecian Ferret Water Bearer by natamon














My imagination runs wild when I look at animals in person, as well as simple photographs- natamon 



KovoWolf asks "Where does most of your inspiration come from for your artwork? All your characters are breathtakingly portrayed as more real animals with 'human' traits. Where did this idea first come from?"



:iconnatamon:

My inspiration is simple-the face of an animal. My imagination runs wild when I look at animals in person, as well as simple photographs. Some shots just scream a certain story, that only I can see quite clearly in my mind-so I crave to capture that as art once I see it. I think I just daydream off and on when I see certain animals, and imbue them with all these human thoughts, feelings and attitudes. I can't seem to help it! 



 

KovoWolf asks "Being an artist we always find ourselves improving and growing from our old works. What is your least favorite piece in your gallery? Have you learned a lot sense this piece artistic wise?"



:iconnatamon:

Well, this one is equally tough to answer, because I dislike looking back at my old work as well, but I suppose my least favorite would be 'Bejeweled Cat 12', as I did not get the proportion of the face as symmetrical as I preferred. I think I have learned a great deal since then, and will never stop learning-ever.


Romeo And Julliet Ferrets by natamon
 




KovoWolf asks "What do you find most challenging about Anthro art or your art in general? How do you feel DeviantART has facilitated your artistic ventures? Has it allowed you to expand?"



:iconnatamon:

I think the greatest challenge is to really capture what is in my mind-that vision of some special personality that I am trying very much to translate in my medium. Deviantart has allowed me to share my work with so many people who not only seem to appreciate my work, but the stories I like to tell within them. That is especially valued by me. I come from a
long line of story-tellers, so anyone getting a smile from the visual tales
I tell, means a great deal.









never be afraid to place a little bit of yourself in your pieces and never forget the importance of reference material- natamon




KovoWolf asks "How long have you had a passion for Anthro art? Was there someone who inspired you? A group of people?"



:iconnatamon:

I think I began capturing animals fairly early in my childhood, but actually, it was the subject of people dominated my art from my preteens and onward. For many years, that was a far greater focus for me, and animals would only come into my work very occasionally. Then, in the past 15 years, my love of animals grew, and with that, a sort of 'translation' of my love of the human subject, into an animal form. Suddenly, I'd found I was making very human characters, only they just happened to be animals! Lol. But as for inspiration, the illustrators of countless children's books, growing up, was a HUGE inspiration...





KovoWolf asks "Is there anything that you are working on, project wise / art wise, that you want to share with the community?"



:iconnatamon:

Oh goodness, I am always working on something! :) If a day goes by and I don't get to make some art, it feels curiously empty....But right now, in addition to working on custom orders, I am working on my sequel to my Dr. Weaselhoffer piece, with another Steam Punk ferret-he's a time traveler...

I like to sculpt as well, so more and more of my sculpted animal pendants will soon be available, as well as more of a series of 'Clockwork Creature' brooches..there are lots of previews and info on my Facebook art page, which I update often...




KovoWolf asks "Do you have any advice to offer future / current / aspiring Anthro artists?"



:iconnatamon:

Well, I would say 2 things: never be afraid to place a little bit of yourself in your pieces and never forget the importance of reference material! No one is born knowing each and every aspect of animal anatomy, and photos will really help breathe extra, believability into your art subjects. :)

Artist Interview with the Talented lost-tyrant


Thank you lost-tyrant for allowing me the opportunity to interview you, and providing the community with some amazing feedback about yourself and your art!





KovoWolf asks "Tell us a little bit about yourself! What first perked your interest in the Anthro community and Anthro art itself??"



:iconlost-tyrant:

Hey, My name is Rafael, I'm a lax American southern male. I like to draw concept art for character development and backgrounds weaponry design and characters are my specialty. Just wanna make something visually interesting and appealing.

....Influences...
Robin Hood, Disney's the Jungle book, Tale-spin, The Lion King. There was so much anthropomorphic influence at a younger age, I couldn't help but to be inspired by some of that. Especially when I would be on punishment, all i had access to was a book. I think this book called Disney's uncle Remus's stories. the artwork in it help me begin to understand hands, due to its simple hand drawings. That book was a good outlet for inspiration, while not being able to do nothing else. could at least sneak some drawings of OCs that were inspired by it. Honestly, I hated the way I drew my human noses back in the day, until I was introduced to Sailor Moon in the 5th grade, lol


 

KovoWolf asks "What is your favorite piece from your gallery? Why?"



:iconlost-tyrant:

My favorite piece, I dunno, I like pretty much all of them. But i might have to go with The image "Together", just because that has a lot of character concepts I like in it. When I look at it, I'm refreshed, I'm taken somewhere, I tend to start daydreaming.

KovoWolf asks "How much of your art, would you say, is for aesthetic purposes (to be admired by the viewer), and how much is it about a message to the audience?"



:iconlost-tyrant:

I'd say like 97 percent is Aesthetic. I just like to draw print like works and concepts mainly. If i draw something with meaning, I will probably make something relating to a dream. Something heavenly or something. Always wanted to draw a picture that shows an all encompassing love.




Nooo by lost-tyrant

KovoWolf asks "Where does most of your inspiration come from for your artwork? All your characters are breathtakingly portrayed as more real animals with 'human' traits. Where did this idea first come from?"



:iconlost-tyrant:

I like sci-fi and especially fantasy. I love the concept of elves and were-creatures, anything different or exotic and natural. I'm usually inspired by ancient cultures like Greek/Roman, Japanese and Egyptian, Native american. Also their Folklore and deities. I was inspired by games as well, like rpgs and platforms. Other artists inspire me as well. Thank you, I keep trying to make stuff interesting. 



 

KovoWolf asks "Being an artist we always find ourselves improving and growing from our old works. What is your least favorite piece in your gallery? Have you learned a lot sense this piece artistic wise?"



:iconlost-tyrant:

I think The fat Dante picture is my least favorite- I felt I slacked off more toward the background upon completion of the piece. I think this among others are stepping stones to reach higher in understanding in general.

KovoWolf asks "What do you find most challenging about Anthro art or your art in general? How do you feel DeviantART has facilitated your artistic ventures? Has it allowed you to expand?"



:iconlost-tyrant:

The most challenging is always the pose really. I can place the character onto the background fine, but when it comes to poses, sometimes I'm just at a loss- Ill draw multiple attempts that are all off sometimes. DA has definitely. There are so many artists on it that are on par or above my level in every aspect. I can always look to the side of a deviation and gather good study material through that. Nowadays I'm floating around tumblr mostly.









but grandma put a pencil in my hand once to keep me from crying, that's what started it all - lost-tyrant




KovoWolf asks "How long have you had a passion for Anthro art? Was there someone who inspired you? A group of people?"



:iconlost-tyrant:

You know how parents give you stuff to do when you are a toddler? I got some toys and stuff, but grandma put a pencil in my hand once to keep me from crying, that's what started it all. I got into anthro at like age 10, I didn't start to really shine until the end of high school though. Before i learned to color digitally, I would hang around VCL since i had nothing at the time but a computer. Now though, Jay Axer Influences me a bit. But im more into the mtg artists at the moment- Im trying to up my understanding for color, light and visual composition.





KovoWolf asks "Is there anything that you are working on, project wise / art wise, that you want to share with the community?"



:iconlost-tyrant:

I have a lot of schoolwork at the moment, and friends are in town. There is a plethora events going on to where my plans are on hold. I have a card game I'm trying to create, other than that I will keep trying to write information on characters I want to conceptualize. I do have a picture I've been wanting to do- I want to do a game character compilation picture, where various game characters come together to play games. Hadn't done a big picture in quite some time.

KovoWolf asks "Do you have any advice to offer future / current / aspiring Anthro artists?"



:iconlost-tyrant:

Stay enveloped within the community. Find an art circle online. If you aren't able to, just keep doing what you love to do. Never stop drawing, and look at all avenues of art styles, like old school Merry Melodies or Loony Toons. Disney, to artists on DA. There are a lot of references out there. You gotta stay focused. Regularly draw, like i mean maybe have a good couple of hour sessions every week to start, keep doing it whenever you have to wait, like on a train- have that sketchbook out and draw instead of texting.

Draw what you are comfortable with, the goal is to get used to what you draw/ get comfortable first, then move on. Find things you know you can draw, then find things that you might be able to draw- Tackle the little things first then slowly move on up. Before you know it, you'll look back and see an improvement. You'll see that you no longer get stumped drawin' that certain thing you used to trip up trying to draw.

Have patience and Enjoy it. Without that passion, itll be impossible to improve. Best of luck out there, you all! =3

What Is Anthropomorphic Art?


Anthropomorphism or personification is any attribution of human characteristics (or characteristics assumed to belong only to humans) to other animals, non-living things, phenomena, material states, objects or abstract concepts, such as organizations, governments, spirits or deities. The term was coined in the mid-1700s. Examples include animals and plants and forces of nature such as winds, rain or the sun depicted as creatures with human motivations, and/or the abilities to reason and converse. The term derives from the combination of the Greek ἄνθρωπος (ánthrōpos), "human" and μορφή (morphē), "shape" or "form".

As a literary device, anthropomorphism is strongly associated with art and storytelling where it has ancient roots. Most cultures possess a long-standing fable tradition with anthropomorphised animals as characters that can stand as commonly recognised types of human behavior. In contrast to this, conventional Western science, as well as such religious doctrines as the Christian Great Chain of Being propound the opposite, anthropocentric belief that animals, plants and non-living things, unlike humans, lack spiritual and mental attributes, immortal souls, and anything other than relatively limited awareness.

Username Change?

Mon Sep 29, 2014, 11:11 AM by KovoWolf:iconkovowolf:







Changing My Username


Should I change it?


I have been toying around with this idea for a long while now, ever sense they introduced username changes!  It would be rather similar, actually, but I've been debating if I should...

KovoWolf has been with me for a very very long time. "Kovo" actually has been a nickname I've had for 12 years going on 13. Everyone knows me by it. It's a nickname that means a great deal to me, however, I believe with any growth of an individual, that a nickname that represented so many things, struggles, life changes, etc. can also evolve into something new along with a person.

Yes? No? Would it be to much of a change for someone to recognize me as someone other then KovoWolf? A name I've already established? Should I hold onto my old nickname, or move on to something fairly similar in name, just slightly changed? I have an idea of what I want to change it to, but I'm not going to announce it yet.

I am curious as a fellow artist to another, would it behoove me to change my username?
