Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for July 2020

So far, approximately $0.00 has been raised out of our target of $250.00. We're about 0% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 July!

How to donate?

At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.

Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Litecoin (LTC)
Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

Member Live - Bargue Study with Acrylic Painting 2020-06-10T04:22:23+00:00close

In this Tuesday evening member live demo, I used Acrylic as medium for this Bargue torso study. However, you can use any drawing or painting mediums to follow me through this lesson. The process will be similar.

This is the 4th of the series "Classical Drawing Training" focusing on training our sensitivity and ability of observing, measuring and problem-solving. In this drawing study I used hard compressed charcoal pencil. You can use other drawing materials as well. Though these kinds of practice can be too much work, but through a short and intensive training, we can levitate ourselves to a better artists.

Your painting appears even more three-dimensional than the Bargue drawing. You have such confidence in your ability to refine an image as you go through the painting process. It's inspiring.

Thank you for mentioning not testing the watercolor prior to applying it to the surface you're painting on. I can't bring myself to test because it interferes with the flow of my painting process. Plus by not testing it helps to develop my confidence in the decisions I make in the process. If I make a mistake I would just do what I can to correct it. Thanks for sharing the video. Looking forward to seeing more.

Wonderful info! Sorry I was not able to join the Zoom demonstration However I'm glad you recorded it. I have been using the big brush since you gave it to me in 2017. I realize now that my progress, in part, is due to the limited pallet of three colors and reliance on the big brush. Definitely has been economical for me. Plus, I have been more focused on techniques rather than supplies. Thank you, Yong!

New portrait watercolor lesson in production 2020-03-20T22:47:15+00:00close

I just finished painting, and the production is under way. In a few days, it should be ready for you next week.

I first did a 1 hour 15 minutes drawing study to explain the value composition and how to prepare the watercolor painting. The watercolor painting is about 2 hour 40 minutes. The full process of drawing study and watercolor painting will be only available to members/patrons.

Thanks for your continuing support. Enjoying learning and painting.

Kelly, thanks for your support, and, yes, you should have the member benefit, I just need to figure it out how to do it.

yongchen - 13 Aug 19 19:08
Kelly, I just looked in YouTube, it doesn't have any integration with Discord like what Patreon does. If you want the benefits you see here, my best suggestion for you would be to stop your YouTube membership and become a patron on Patreon. When we have members on YouTube, I will also have some similar video conferences there, too. Please contact me if you have questions.

How to Improve Focal Point in a Painting [member critique] 2019-06-30T16:00:52+00:00close

How to make certain areas in a painting to be more visible than the rest? Each painting needs a focal point. Most time we spend so much time on thinking about the small areas, we call them local areas, but we forget the relationships among the big masses, we can call these relationships global relationship. This critique video may answer many of our members' current struggles.

Critique - create relationship through contrast 2019-05-21T15:22:03+00:00close

In the process of creating a good and meaningful painting, line is important visual element, but when come to compose relationships, we also need to use use shape, value, contrast and edges. In this critique lesson, you will see how I will adjust the visual elements with simple ideas to improve the relationship.

We you have a few images to combine into a portrait project, what are you going to do, how to use the references? This video will provide you one of the many ways to work through the process. In this lesson, I used digital tool (iPad) for easy workflow, but you can print the references to do it in a traditional way.

For portrait drawing beginners, under the basic shape and anatomy of face is important. In this charcoal lesson, I focused on how to understand the shape, light and shadow of an eye, then translated the knowledge into visual language, so the drawing will communicate the illusion of the form.

Did I understand you when you said you preferred to use an oil based pencil when sketching? If use use oil based pencil for drawing but a water color paint...does it bead up?
user avatar
yongchen - 19 Apr 19 16:24
Oil-based colored pencil and wax-based can be the same. Anywhere that the colored pencil mark covered area, the paint may not get into, but everywhere are fine to accept water and paint. In this aspect, oil-base and wax-based are the same. Oil-base doesn't mean that the oil will spill on the paper. The glue and harden agent in the colored pencils is oil-base. Comparing the oil-based and wax-based, it's harder and stronger than wax-based.

How to use White Charcoal in a Charcoal Drawing on Toned Paper 2019-04-03T21:24:50+00:00close

Some members like to draw using black and white charcoals on toned paper. Is white charcoal the replacement of the eraser? Meaning instead of lift up the black charcoal on the toned paper to make it lighter, you may use the white charcoal to light up the area which is already has black charcoal. In my process, I do it differently. In my mind, the toned paper is the middle value of the drawing, I would only apply black charcoal for the area that is darker than the middle tone (the paper color). If you already put the black charcoal to the area that should be lighter than the middle tone, then you should remove the black charcoal mark first before thinking about whether you should make it even lighter (with white charcoal).

NWS 2019 Member's Exhibition April 4 - June 23, 2019. The opening reception is scheduled Saturday, April 6, 2019 from 2:00-6:00pm. ADDRESS: 915 South Pacific Ave., San Pedro CA 90731

How to use White Charcoal in a Charcoal Drawing on Toned Paper - Patron

Description
Some members like to draw using black and white charcoals on toned paper. Is white charcoal the replacement of the eraser? Meaning instead of lift up the black charcoal on the toned paper to make it lighter, you may use the white charcoal to light up the area which is already has black charcoal. In my process, I do it differently. In my mind, the toned paper is the middle value of the drawing, I would only apply black charcoal for the area that is darker than the middle tone (the paper color). If you already put the black charcoal to the area that should be lighter than the middle tone, then you should remove the black charcoal mark first before thinking about whether you should make it even lighter (with white charcoal).

Improvement with slowing down the eye-movement 2019-03-26T15:49:56+00:00close

The original painting looks great, good painting techniques. I have one suggestion here: the audience's eye can move following the edge of the rocks and quickly travel from the left and exit to the right. It is too quick. You need to slow it down. How to do it? We need to somehow break the smooth-connected LINE. Here is my suggesting solution: bring the wave-splash bigger to cover it, at the same time, bring a stronger impact to the painting. Now, do you feel that your eyes travel-movement slowing down? And probably stay on the painting longer?

When we paint, we want to find a strong impression, and amplify it. Keep up the good work!

Yong

Varnish Removal from an Oil Painting 2019-03-24T22:33:25+00:00close

This is a painting I painted before 2012 for my exhibition at the Bannister Gallery, RI. Learn more on this page: http://yongchen.com/press/mystory_with_paintings.php

Before I brought it to the gallery along with other oil paintings, I already applied a layer of permanent varnish. Now I want to continue spending more time on it. In this video I show you my process of removing the varnish from this painting using varnish remover from Winsor & Newton.

That looks painstakingly difficult. Could you see a difference when the varnish had dissolved and was no longer covering each area of your oil painting?

yongchen - 27 Mar 19 12:12
You won't see too much difference, but if you press harder and more, this time you will see some color on your cotton stick.

I just started the Drawing Lessons and finished watching the 12th video today. They are great and I can draw in my sketchpad and take notes along the way. I like the focus on the basics. Consistency on basics is where I think I've had problems, but practicing with these videos and repeating the steps is going to really help me. Thanks & I look forward to moving forward on these lessons.

Painting Acrylic as Shapes in Few Simple Steps

Description
https://www.patreon.com/yongchen http://enjoyingart.com This still-life acrylic painting, I demonstrate a direct painting process. The steps in the acrylic painting process, though the tools and techniques are different, but the way I divide the process into stages are the same as how I do watercolor, gouache or charcoal: composition / blocking in large shapes / adjusting the color and value balance / working into small shapes/details / final touch.

Critiques for February Landscape Challenge 2019-03-11T03:06:44+00:00

Hi members,

This month I tried to do each individual review, so it has been taking much long time. But the good news is they are almost done. This couple of days I will have all videos add to the EnjoyingArt Learning Center under a new library. And I will also email you the links to the videos in case you have trouble access to the website.

Thank you for your patience.

Scale comparison is one aspect of the consideration in painting composition. In this beautiful watercolor landscape painting, my suggestions are paying some more attention to the shape variation to create more contrast and more.

Reviews have been almost completed. I will create a new library in the EnjoyingArt Learning Center to list all the review lessons for our February Challenge. I will put together some details for this month (March) challenge.
