How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was. I won't ever deny it; I use photoshop to take out distracting blemishes, but for the most part, my skin is how you see it. I wanted to go into a bit more depth on how I got to this place. This journal may get a bit gross at times, just sayin'
My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne.  Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you
Looking for male stock?Since I often get requests for male stock, I wanted to do a feature and bring you some quality male model resources. Show them some love!
Also, stop asking me to provide male stock. At this point, I can't.
If you need anything male, first you should join :iconmanstock: the group dedicated to male stock and reference. Also, for everything couples, try :iconromancing-the-stock:
Now, in no particular order as I go through my watch list:

Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)Art is a process.
Like that of the scientific method and philosophical alchemy, art can be refined and improved through process. From observation, to experiment, to reflection and conclusion, art is improved by the steps we make towards change, not solidification and stagnation. Much of the advice out there for drawing is simply “practice” or “avoid distractions”. This advice is good, but there is more to creation than just throwing yourself mindlessly into a task and avoiding bad habits along the way. Good habits and knowledge will help to excel your learning process faster, and from that, improve faster and more effectively.
Look at it
As an artist, observation is key. The skill we develop is not just seeing, but interpreting what we see, remembering what we have seen and recording it in the form of visual art. This is a skill that, aside from blindness or vision degradation, you will be able to improve during your entire life. The way of seeing from an art

STOCK RULES

- Please credit me if you use one of my images. This means putting a link back to this profile somewhere near the finished piece.

Put a text link to my main profile OR use :iconrobynrose: (:icon robynrose: with the space removed)
Do not link to the stock piece you used, as I do delete old work I no longer like, and that leads to a dead link.

- Send me a note or comment linking me to the finished product. I would love to see what you've done. I always fave it!

- NO COMMERCIAL USE unless written permission is received. This includes turning creations into prints on DA. Please send me a note about commercial use, and what the project is about.

- My stock may not be redistributed, sold, or edited and redistributed or edited and sold. (In other words, you are not allowed to offer or sell my stock as your stock, edited or not. You are welcome to use it for creations)

Redistribution is defined as any posting of my own images, (including resized or unacceptibly low manipulation) to Deviantart or any other website.

DO NOT REPOST MY STOCK IMAGES ANYWHERE. NO TUMBLR NO FACEBOOK NO PINTEREST NO FORUMS OR PERSONAL WEBSITES. You may LINK to my stock, but no image posting.

My stock may not be used or reposted unedited. The purpose of my stock is for drawing reference. It is not free for use as graphics, icons, banners, aps, business cards, etc. If I find my stock used or reposted without my permission, especially commercially, I will file a DMCA takedown.

The art that you make FROM my stock may be shared, but you may not share my stock itself. Please link back to my site so that others become aware of my rules. They cannot follow my rules if they find my images on outside sites.

For pixel artists: This means you may use my stock to create dolls, with credit, but not doll bases.

My stock may not be used to make tutorials, including photo editing tutorials. This falls under reposting my stock unedited.

- I would appreciate it if my stock wasn't used for any hateful, pornographic, violent or obscene creation. Of course, this is very difficult to even define, much less enforce, so I just ask you to use your judgement when using my stock.

In the end, I reserve the right to ask anyone to remove any artwork using my stock that I feel breaks these terms of use.

- My stock is intended for art reference and use in photo manipulations. It is not free pornography. I am NOT a fetish model. I will NEVER do nude photos. Ever. Don't ask.

- DO NOT add my stock to "hot girl" folders or fetish folders. Feet, vore, inflation, etc. NO. You can have your fetish and kink but keep me out of it. This goes for favourites or art. I'm really strict about my no-porn rule.

- PLEASE DON'T make comments about my body. Even comments you think are compliments. I don't need to hear that I have a "nice ass". Keep it about the art.

- Questions and comments about anatomy and poses are fine. "Why is your shoulder bent?" or "are you locking your elbow when you hold it?" are perfectly acceptable comments.

- Not all images on this account are stock images, so if you cannot download it, it's not stock.

- Blocked users are automatically forbidden from using my stock.

And I wanted to reflect upon similarities betwen our situations.
I've gone through many things in my life, and talked about some of them, and not talked about others.
And I sometimes drop off the face of the earth.

But I look at everything you make.

I keep everything.

I have my folder on my computer of drawing made from my stock
and it makes me so happy when I'm feeling down.

And if you think your drawing isn't worthwhile because you're a beginner
It's the BEST. BECAUSE you are a beginner.

It makes me feel like I am helping young artists to get better.
I am inspiring new artists to challenge themselves.

I look at every drawing.
I keep every drawing.
Because it's a part of me and it's a part of you.
We have that connection now.
We've made our mark on the world, however small, together.

Fellow artists, I support you.
So I'm doing a small scene in my acting class, and I have to smoke.

aaaand being the good D.A.R.E. kid that I am, I've never gone anywhere near cigarettes.
Yay for fumbling my cig around and then dropping it on my foot.
Anyone know of any tutorials for how to smoke?
I'm interested in the mannerisms and habbits of smokers.
So that it looks like you've been doing it for a long time.

What sort of differences in behaviours are there? Nervous smoking to calm down vs having a relaxing smoke after dinner.
Do right-handed people generally smoke with their dominant hand? How long do you go between inhales?

DON'T DO DRUGS, KIDS!

EDIT: also my practice cigarette for right now is just a tightly rolled up piece of paper taped together.

UPDATE: My scene went over just fine! I used a rolled up piece of paper for my "cigarette".

I practiced taking it habitually out of my pocket and fake-lighting it. And getting comfortable fiddling something around in my hand and my mouth with my lines. I also practiced feeling relaxed and satisfied after taking the first drag. My acting teacher said I did really well playing attention to small details. They're what really make a scene.

Thanks for all your help and replies, I found them all very useful!

Your stock is truly helpful and realistic, I admire in particular the fact that you don't fake the stereotype of "feminity" in your photos. Thank you very much.
