Group Info

This group is all about helping artists to become better. If you have a good tutorial, put it in the tutorials folder (Well... Duh) And if you want to get your art rated by other Deviants, put them in the Stuff You Want Rated folder, then people will be able to rate your art and give you tips on how it could be improved even more. Also, if you think your art shows a technique that other Deviants could use to improve their art, put it in the featured folder. I hope that this group will make DeviantArt an even better place for artists to improve.

Just a bump: If any of you passerby are looking for something in particular and find it absent from our collections, you can send a PM or let us know right here on the side. :wave:

I really would like some help with a piece I'm working on at the moment. I've got my canvas on which I intend to paint my design on, and I've drawn my design on tracing paper, BUT! Here is my problem... How do I get my design from the tracing paper, onto my canvas. I don't have a strong enough light to shine through the canvas to trace it... And I don't know if I should cover the back of the tracing paper with graphite, it could smudge my canvas... Help?

Hi, there! I don't really work with canvas, so I can't say from experience what the best method is, nor do I know what kind of materials you have to use. I did a quick Google search, and this page seems to give some pretty reasonable-sounding methods:…

Thank you so much for your very helpful reply... Why on earth I didn't think of googling it myself, I don't know. Lol. Thank you heaps, there are heaps of great tips on there. :D I have a few more ideas now on how I'm going to go about this, I didn't want to smudge graphite all over my canvas, but either a projector of some kind (eventually will help) in the mean time I shall use a light coloured pastel or chalk and trace my image that way. :)

You're very welcome! :) It's okay. Sometimes it takes talking-it-out with someone else to realize things. You're welcome, and I'm glad you were able to find it useful. Sounds great! Good luck. ^^

Try going over what you have done on the tracing paper, whilst it is on the canvas, and press down hard. Leaving an indent in the canvas. That may work.

Thank you for accepting my request to join this group.  I am eager to learn what I can.
Cynei Jun 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist you think you could help or refer me to help for this problem? [link]
It's a sad problem..
Is this group active? I want all the advice I can get.
MangakaBen Mar 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, Just upload the art in the correct place. This group is to hopefully divert users to art such as yours, so it can be rated, and assistance can be given. We also have folders filled with tutorials for people to use :D
