This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get a premium membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get a premium membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
My name is David I'm twenty-seven year old, I was born in Alsace in the north east of France. I'm a self-taught artist and I'm specialized in hyper-realistic drawings since 2010, I hope you'll enjoy my work!

I use Staedtler Lumograph pencils 6H to 8B, and two mechanical pencils 0.3mm (H) and 0.5mm (2B). Most of my drawings are A3 format on Canson Bristol "Extra smooth" 250g/m² paper.
2. How much time do you spend on your drawings?
It depends of the models, 40 hours on average but it can go to 60 hours and more..
3. With what make you the highlights and how your drawings are so smooth?
For the highlights I use a kneaded eraser, you can easily found it in every art shop. For blending, I mainly use tissues for the largest parts (like the face of a portrait) and tortillions for the small corners. For further explanation, please read the tutorials listed at the end.
4. How do you get the right proportions?
I've drawn many drawings freehand, but the fastest and easiest way to have the right proportions is to make a gridline. You can also use a ruler to measure the important dots (eye's location, the outline of the face etc.)
5. Have you any advices for beginner?
Be patient and don't try to draw too complex models from the start! The practice is the key to progress and you will need a lot of time to achieved the desired level.
The important things to remember:
- Buy good materials, pencils 2H , F, B, 2B, 4B, 6B are the minimum. Prefer also thick sheets, this will allow you to make corrections easier.
- Put your photos in black and white to distinguish the shades of grays.
