Contest 23 - Historical Disney

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 5, 2013, 12:04 PM




:trophy:

And the winners are...

:star: In the Judge's Section:

Chosen by :iconmistytang::iconzimeta::iconshoomlah:

:bulletblue: First Place:




Give me your voice by Khioora

What the judges were saying: "Khioora's piece definitely jumped out at me when I was first browsing through the entries- it's a striking illustration, granted, but I was also taken with the integration of both 1830's fashion, and Romantic period portrayals of mermaids with more delineated legs. I'm not a huge fan of fashion in the 1830's, but I'll be the first to admit that it's a blast to draw; I think Khioora did a great job of capturing the so-called "Waist and Extravagance" of the period with both her characters' overall silhouette, and her general detailing of the costume. Great stuff!"~ shoomlah


:bulletblue: Second Place:



Queen Kidagakash by PissedArtwork

What the judges were saying: "PissedArtwork's Queen Kidakagash is a lovely attempt to meld the disparate inspirations for Atlantis into a single, cultural costume"~ shoomlah

"I love all the detail and research put into this rarely drawn Disney Princess!" ~MistyTang

:bulletblue: Third Place:



Tiana, Naveen, and Steamboat Willie by MoonyMina

What the judges were saying: "I love the idea of Tiana and Naveen seeing a movie in the early days of movies - especially since the movie chosen just so happens to be Steamboat Willie! It's an excellent crossover true to the time Tiana and Naveen live in. The wedding rings are a great touch as this definitely take place a while after the movie does. ~Zimeta

Thanks for entering, everyone! This contest was a blast! :hug:






:star: You guys voted! And the next contest we'll be doing is "Historical Disney", inspired by shoomlah's Historical Princess Collection!.

For this contest you'll be taking your favorite Disney movie/TV show/etc. and putting a historical spin on it. Whether that be clothing, a historical place, or even an event, it's up to you!

For more information, read on!

- Your picture doesn't have to be of a princess. Anything Disney is okay.

- Any Disney movie/TV show/Video game/comic is just fine. You're free to choose whatever you want!

- Any medium is fine (Traditional, digital, literature is all okay)

- There are several ways you can put a historical spin on your entry. Here are some:

:bulletblue: Make the clothes of your chosen character more accurate to history in the time period it's set.
:bulletblue: If the character you want to draw is already accurate to history (example: TRON took place and was made in the '80s, so the clothing is already accurate) then you can draw them in historically accurate clothes from the era that weren't featured in the movie.
:bulletblue: Draw the characters in a historical locale. Example: The Princess and the Frog takes place in 1920s New Orleans. If you can draw the characters from the film at a locale special to that time and place, be our guest!
:bulletblue: Draw the characters at a historical event special to their time and place. Examples: civil rights movement, WWII, etc.
:bulletblue: Draw your chosen character in the style of an artist at the time your chosen movie takes place.
:bulletblue: Other? Go ahead and ask in a comment!

:bulletblue: For writers: The best option would probably be to depict your chosen characters at an historical event.

- Crossovers are fine, but you must keep your crossovers restricted to within three fandoms.

- Our regular group rules still stand. No Kingdom Hearts, ABC shows, or Marvel characters unless they're accompanied by a regular Disney character.

- Your artwork must be new. Only works created after this contest was put up (01-05-13) will be accepted.

- No fan pairings. All pairings must be canonical.

- No gender bending

- Keep it clean. No nudity, gore, or nipples poking through clothes. NO FETISHES!

- Don't use screenshots in your work. All the art you submit must be completely made by you.

- You may enter the contest even if you're not a member. Comment in this journal with a link to your entry when you're done so I can add it here.

- And please be aware it can take up to a day for us to list your entry here/ accept it into the group. We have about 10,000+ members, so it takes us a little bit of time to get through all our messages. If you've been waiting for more than a day and a half, THEN you can send us a note and ask what's up.

- When the contest is over, we'll put up a  journal with all the entries on it, and the members will vote on which one they think is best. And, a panel of judges will decide on six other winners.

- You're allowed TWO entries.

- Please submit your entry to our Contest 23 - Historical Disney folder in our gallery!

- If you have any additional questions, either comment here, note the club, or note one of the owners, (MistyTang or Zimeta)




:star: March 25th, 2013.
There will be no extensions unless up to half the people who've entered at the time of the due-date ask for an extension. So, no; an extension is not likely.

Use your time wisely!





:bulletblue: Panel of Judges

:iconshoomlah: :iconmistytang: :iconzimeta: :iconratscout:

Judges may enter the contest, but they will only be eligible to win in the Popular Vote section.

We chose our winners by creativity, originality and personality more than artwork. So, be sure to stretch your imagination!

:bulletblue: How to Gain Favor with the Judges

- Descriptions on this one are VERY important! We want to know all about your historical subject and where you got your inspiration/references. Your work won't have to be 100% accurate to history, but your inspiration is key to your success for this contest.

- Be creative! The best artwork will not necessarily win. Think out of the box, and go wild!

- We will not choose anyone who traces an image from a screenshot or another artist. Take an original view, or use your own style to make your artwork unique.

- Put effort into your work. You don't have to be the best artist for your effort to show. Believe me, we can tell.

- Make a scene! There's nothing more boring to us than a bunch of characters standing around. Bring it to life!





VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

Three prizes will be given by popular vote, and three will be given by our panel of judges.

Contest 33 - Books into Disney Movies- WINNERS!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 4, 2014, 10:27 AM




:trophy:

And the winners are...

:star:In the Judging Section:star:

:bulletblue: FIRST PLACE :bulletblue:

What the judges were saying: Usually we don't choose entries with preexisting designs, but this idea seems so Disney we simply could not resist! It seems like it'd make a great movie in the same line as Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers. An enchanting idea that made us wish we could watch it right now!  



:bulletblue: SECOND PLACE :bulletblue:

What the judges were saying: Another great example of a Disney-fication of classic literature. DubyaScott came up with very animate-able designs and even created a sidekick character in classic Disney fashion. It's another movie we'd just love to buy tickets for!



:bulletblue: THIRD PLACE :bulletblue:

What the judges were saying: With a great off-beat book idea that could still be Disney, and a strong song to go with it, the judges couldn't resist Me, Simian! The drawing with all the personal objects draw you in, and make you want to know more about the story.

:bulletpurple:  SECOND PLACE :bulletpurple:



:bulletpurple:  THIRD PLACE :bulletpurple:





- Pick a favorite book of yours and imagine it as a Disney movie! Design what you think the characters would look like if Disney developed them.

- Be sure to mention what book you chose in your description.

- Any book will do except erotica/porn of course. If Disney can make Hunchback of Notre Dame into a book, you can choose anything, really. Just Disney-fy it!

- You don't have to draw in any of the Disney styles to enter. Using your own is just dandy!

- Don't use a book/ book series Disney's already visited. Where's the fun in that?

- We'd prefer it if the book wasn't already made into a movie by another company, but if you think that said movie could've been better, go ahead!

- Fairytales and folklore are also okay to use

- Don't use comic books this time. They're already heavily illustrated enough, we think.

- Don't use your own book. I know a lot of you out there have written books, and that's great, but we'll save the original ideas for another contest.

- Extra Points!
Here are some ways to gain extra points  (we'll say 5 points each) in the popular vote section (and maybe a nod from the judges in the judging section):

:bulletblue: Leave a comment on all the other entries! Just show some competitive spirit by leaving a comment of at least two sentences saying what you like about each image.
:bulletblue: Make your entry into a movie poster
:bulletblue: Write a song (poem) that would be featured in your movie either as a musical number or even a poppy credits song. You can make it IN your picture, or in the description of your picture.

- You must mention this contest in the description of your deviation if you want to enter it into the contest. Just write something along the lines of "for the Books into Disney Movies contest at Disney-Club" and that'll do.

- Any medium is allowed. Digital, traditional, literature, photos, sculptures, etc. Go for it!

- YES. Written entries are allowed. I suggest you write something like a screenplay of how a favorite scene of yours would go in a Disney movie.

- Your entry must have been created for this contest. In other words, you can't enter a piece you did before the creation of this contest.  [July 4th, 2014]

- Keep it clean. No nudity, gore, or nipples poking through clothes. NO FETISHES!

- You're allowed to have TWO entries.

- You may enter the contest even if you're not a member. Comment in this journal with a link to your entry when you're done so I can add it here.

- To submit your entry, simply submit it to one of this folder:
Contest 33 - Books into Disney Movies

- And please be aware it can take up to a day for us to list your entry here/ accept it into the group. We have about 18,000 members, so it takes us a little bit of time to get through all our messages. If you've been waiting for more than a day and a half, THEN you can send us a note and ask what's up.

- When the contest is over, we'll put up a  journal with all the entries on it, and the members will vote on which one they think is best. And, a panel of judges will decide on three other winners.

I run many clubs here at DeviantART, but the one I always look forward to logging in the most is this Disney-club. We get so many kinds of art for so many different movies... it's just a joy to run!

In fact, there is so much good Disney art here, I think it only appropriate to show you guys.

Here's a small helping of some of the best Disney art on DA. (And not only Disney Princesses, believe it or not. Hehe.)

Today is Uncle Walt's 111th birthday! ^0^

He's been a great influence to do many of us. :iconhappytearsplz:


































From Disney comes two-time Oscar winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” starring Academy Award winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever.

Visit the official page!

A friend of mine is writing a book on animation fundamentals and asked me for a "paragraph or two" (which I can't do) on the subject of timing.  I considered it and ended up writing about my progression of learning while a Disney animator in the traditional animation days.  It was good therapy for me to really think this through and consider the order of things.  I hope you enjoy it.  "Like" or "fav" this so others will see it too.  Thanks!


My Progression As A Disney Animator
by Tom Bancroft


Walt Disney is quoted as saying that it takes 10 years to make a great animator.

When I was first coming out of California Institute of the Arts and joining a Disney internship in 1988, hearing that quote was devastating.  10 years?  That's FOREVER!  I wanted to be a full-fledged Disney animator in TWO years!  I rationalized that that was a way of thinking from the 40s and today, we move at a quicker pace, so- just like microwave ovens- we can speed up that process.  There.  Walt wasn't wrong, just wrong for THESE times.  

As an eager, young animator at Disney in the early 90s, my strongest desire (as was the same with my animator peers) was to get just one, strong acting scene.   Four or five LINES, beautifully spoken and with lots of drama dripping from them.  That's the kind of scenes that all Disney animators in training know look good on your animation reel and will get you promoted.  I look back at my progression of learning in my twelve years at Disney as a traditional animator and I can describe my leaps forward in my work in three areas I concentrated on and the order I understood them.  

First was DRAWING.  As an animation geek student, I hovered over Disney animation drawings by the Masters.  The Nine Old Men and some of the current Legends of Disney animation were my bread and butter as an animation student and throughout my early years at Disney.  I thought if I could draw really well, that would make me a good Disney animator.  It's not.  You will have pretty drawings that move odd.  I have seen- and made- quite a few animation tests like that in the beginning years.  

Later on, I discovered the importance of MECHANICS.  Almost immediately after I viewed my pretty drawing, oddly moving animated test I realized I needed to study the mechanics of movement.  I started to realize that behind those Masters' drawings were concepts of movement that I needed to understand to make my animation feel natural.  My first scene of Young Simba on "The Lion King" really brought this home to me.  It was the scene where he jumps down a cliff and ends up rolling down the hill into a thorn thicket (after being chased by the hyenas).  That scene of him tumbling over and over down the hill opened my eyes to the fact that I didn't know how a lion moved- or their anatomy- enough to do my job well.  I had to go and research more.  I took a few days and did that before I went back to my desk and start animating that scene.  I never forgot that scene and it made me a proponent of learning the mechanics behind how people and animals move naturally.

TIMING, was the last of the three hurdles and I discovered its importance last.  While at Cal Arts and at Disney I had always heard how important timing was to a scene.  I recited it back to younger animators many times myself through the years.  I USED the concept of timing in my animation for five or six years but it wasn't until the film "MULAN" and I became a supervising animator on the character of MUSHU the dragon that it became an essential part of my animation.  It was partly because I needed to use it more because Mushu was that kind of cartoony- quick moving character that his timing became a part of how I animated him.  I also animated more SCENES on "Mulan" than I had on the three or four films before it- combined.  So, I was getting much more practice using timing in my scenes.  Thirdly, the Disney Studios had developed better and better technology to aid us animators in shooting and timing out our scenes.  By "Mulan", we had a great digital pencil test system where you could change the timing of your drawings with just a push of the button.  Years before that, like on films like "Beauty and the Beast", we were shooting on clunky video based pencil test systems, where you would have to reshoot your scene to change timing.  At least part of it, if not all of it.  That meant you had to make educated guesses on your timing of each drawing, hoping that you were at least 90% correct and then make a few minor adjustments before you reshot it again to see if you could improve it.  With the advent of the digital pencil test systems, I soon became addicted to finessing my pose test timing to get the exact timing I was hoping looking for.  I would even do the unthinkable, trying things that I hadn't thought through- cutting out drawings on the fly even- to make something even snappier.  I discovered that many times I didn't need all the drawings I had created for a certain movement.  Mushu had made me a speed freak!

Okay, that's taking it a bit far, but my point is that timing became the last missing element of finesse that I could add to my progression of learning.  Not to say that I wasn't learning many things- and still am- during those years but I can look back now and see a road map of my progression.  Timing should have been one of the first things I studied and applied, but I think I didn't put enough importance on it in the beginning of my career.  It took many years of study to embrace all the concepts and how they worked together before I felt comfortable to try new things.  

About 10 years, actually.  I guess Walt was right after all.

RIP Diane Disney Miller

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 19, 2013, 6:10 PM






Earlier today Walt Disney's daughter, Diane Disney Miller passed away. She was 79 years old.

From Disney Blogs:

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Diane Disney Miller and our thoughts are with her family during his difficult time.  As the beloved daughter of Walt Disney and one of his inspirations for creating Disneyland, she holds a special place in the history of The Walt Disney Company and in the hearts of fans everywhere.  She will be remembered for her grace and generosity and tireless work to preserve her father’s legacy, and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Diane was a fierce guardian of her father’s legacy who never hesitated to set the record straight, opening The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco to bring her father’s fascinating story to life. In our many conversations over the years, Diane’s unique and special perspective about her father only deepened my considerable appreciation for him. Diane was incredibly generous in that regard, freely sharing her personal insights and providing details that deepened our knowledge, and we remain grateful for her many valuable contributions to our efforts to preserve Disney history. She and her sister, Sharon, have long been recognized as Walt’s inspiration for Disneyland, a place he created for families to have fun together. For that reason and many others, Diane will always have a special place in our company’s legacy and in the hearts of fans."

Fun fact: Walt Disney was once fired from a newspaper for his “lack of creativity”.

I guess you can't let others get you down! Believe in yourself and your dreams are sure to come true.



Admining this group is awesome because I get to see so many people with such talent submitting their work! I can tell you guys are going places, so keep it up!

:star: Part One

- How to Make a Group

To make a Group, visit the groups listing page: groups.deviantart.com/
At the top in yellow, you'll see a button that says, "Make a Group". Simple as that!

- How many groups can I have?

If you don't have a subscription, you can have up to three.
If you have a subscription, your can have up to ten.


- How to activate Join Requests

The first thing you'll want to do once your group is created is open it up to members! (What's a group without members?)
To do this, go to the front page of your group and click on the red button at the top that says, "Admin Area". Then, click the "manage members" button in the upper left corner. Here you will see a list that says something like, "Founder, Co-Founder, Moderators etc.". Click on the one that says, "Members". Now in the upper right corner of the right box you'll see "On Home, Members", and below that, "Join Requests". Change that little baby from "Are not Allowed" to "Are automatically approved".  

- How to activate and regulate Submissions

Go to the front page of your group and click on the red button at the top that says, "Admin Area".
Then, click the "manage members" button in the upper left corner. Here you will see a list that says something like, "Founder, Co-Founder, Moderators etc.". Click on the one that says, "Members".

In the right box, some way underneath "join requests" you'll see "On Gallery, Members:".
You can either change that option to "are automatically approved" or to "Are Subject to Vote".
The one you choose depends on whether or not you want to monitor every submission that comes in. If you do, click on the "Are Subject to Vote" option.
What this does is, when someone wants to submit to your group, you'll get a message in your inbox in your message center with their deviation in it. You'll see an option that says, "yes" or "no". If it's something you want in your group you can click yes and the picture will appear in your group's gallery. If you say "no", the deviation will be declined and will not appear in your group's gallery.
If you don't want to monitor submissions to your group, click "are automatically approved". Then, anyone who wants to submit can submit anything at anytime without your approval. So! Make sure you keep an eye on that!

- How to limit submissions to your group

If your group's getting too big, and you want to regulate how many submissions are allowed by one person for a certain allotment of time, go to the same "manage members" area as under "How to activate members". Underneath the "On Gallery, members:" button, you'll see something that says, "Global Submission Limit". In the first box, you can choose how many submissions are allowed, and then in the second box you can choose the period of time. So, for example, if you want each member to submit only one deviation a week, choose "1" for the first box, and then "week" in the second box.

- How to Create Gallery Folders

Go into the gallery of your group (by clicking the “gallery” button at the top of your page.)
Once in, you’ll see all your “featured” images. To the lower left, in the side-bar you’ll see a button that says, “new folder”. Click that button and you’ll get a new folder. These folders allow you to organize your gallery more so that people stopping by can find exactly what they’re looking for. Once you create these folders, you’ll need to open submissions to them so that members can submit to them. Otherwise they’re inaccessible.

- How to activate gallery folder submissions and make a limit on them

Go to the front page of your group and click on the red button at the top that says, "Admin Area". Then, click the "manage members" button in the upper left corner. Here you will see a list that says something like, "Founder, Co-Founder, Moderators etc.". Click on the one that says, "Members". Under “On Gallery, Members”, you’ll see the usual “Submissions to featured”.  Under that, you’ll see an option in a light blue color that says, “Show all folders.” Click on that.
Now you can see all of your custom-made gallery folders. Here you can change the submissions options. You can also make a limit on how many deviations can be submitted to them here.

- How to affiliate your group with others

Go to the front page of your group. At the top and to the right, you’ll see an “affiliate” button. If you click on that, you can write in the name of the group you want to affiliate with.

- How to invite members/co-founders/admins

Click on the “Admin Area” button on the front page of your group. Click on the “manage members” button that appears in the upper-left.  Now you’ll have the list, “Founder, Co-founder, contributors etc.” If you click on any one of those, (except founder. You can only have one founder) in the top left box you’ll see a little envelope icon that says, “invite friend to ____”. Write in the name of the deviant you want to invite, and the message will be sent.

- How to Change your Group Avatar

Go to the front page of your group and click on your avatar. Simple as that!

- How to add a tagline to your group

Go to the front page of your group. Click where it says "Group" with "founded ____ ago" under it. Then, click the edit button (the pencil). There you will see an option for a tagline.

- If you're a contributor to a group, your limitations are...

If you're a contributor to a group, your actions will be limited. You won't be able to add folders to galleries, or organize galleries. If you want to do that sort of thing, ask your founder to promote you to a co-founder.

- Once I've submitted my application for a group, how long do I have to wait?

Once you've submitted your application for a new group, it can take a while for it to get activated. Not too long, though. In my experience you only have to wait a day or two for it to start. It probably depends on how many people are submitting applications for groups at one time.

- I've accidentally hid my admin area from myself! What do I do?

Write in the following URL into your search bar, only without the "*":
http*://YOURGROUP'sNAMEHERE.deviantart.com/admin/roster

Then you should be able to find the option to unhide your admin area from yourself.


- How to Close your Group

Go to the front page of your group.
Click on the place that has your icon next to your group's icon.
Then scroll down to the "close group" option.


- - I can't join groups even though other people can. What's wrong?

If you're using a touchpad, some people have told me that certain buttons don't appear on group pages, including the join button. If you're using a touchpad you'll have to ask the founder of the group to send an invite in order to get in. Otherwise, just get on a normal computer and the button should be there.



:star: Part Two

- How to get people to join your group

Having difficulty getting people to join your group?

What I suggest is that you get all the artwork you can for whatever your group is about and have it added to your gallery!
This gets the people you ask it from interested. You don’t have to/shouldn’t go to their page and make a comment, though. This is how you ask the electronic way; go into your gallery and click the “Submit art to this gallery” button next to the “+” at the very top.

Click on the option that appears saying, “contribute an existing deviation”.  A big ol’ box will appear. At the top of this box you’ll see three buttons; “your gallery”, “your favorites” and “all of deviantart”. Click on the one that says, “all of deviantart”.
Now, to the right you can plug in whatever you want to search for in the search bar. A bunch of deviations will appear after you do so.

Click on every single one that has to do with your group – no matter the quality. The picture should turn green when you click on it, and after it does, click the green “submit” button at the bottom of the box. This sends a message to the owner of the artwork asking their permission to have it put in the gallery. If they say “yes”, their artwork will appear in the gallery!

And maybe, just maybe they’ll be interested enough to join themselves.
Also! If their work is put in the gallery, the icon of your group will appear next to their artwork. More and more people will see your group!

Finally, throw contests! If people enter contests at your group, they'll mention your group on your deviation. If they're having fun, more people will want to join in. ^.^

-How to have specific pieces added to your gallery

Did you see an awesome artwork somewhere you’d like to ask to have added to your group? No problem!
Just go into the “contribute an existing deviation” again as above, and click the “all of deviantart” button again.
Now all you gotta do is write in the searchbox:    “by:deviantsusername”
Only, without the quotation marks. This will bring up the person’s gallery you’re looking for, and you can click on the one you want to ask permission for!

Another way: Go to the deviation you want, and to the right side of the page, you'll see a little link that says "[X]Submit to a group". It's kinda small, so keep an eye out for it!

-How to present an organized page

A lot of the time as I’m searching through groups I see pages that are just jam-packed with all of the options deviantart offers you. What I suggest to make your group as attractive as possible is: DO NOT ADD EVERYTHING YOU CAN! If you do, your page will look like a confused mess.
Here are some things I definitely suggest you should do with your front page. All of the following options can be found under the “edit page” button on the front page of your group to the upper right.

“Gallery Folder” – this option will allow you to show off all the deviations in the “featured” part of your gallery. When you put it on your front page, you can edit the options by clicking the little pencil that appears in the upper-right corner of the box. I always put my “featured” box on random by clicking the box that says, “newest” and then switching it to “random”. Then I make it into one huge thumbnail by clicking the “huge thumbnail” button.

AND! I always put this featured folder at the very top of my group. This way when deviants drop by, the first thing they see is a big pretty artwork. I only put the best stuff into this featured folder. ;-)

“Gallery List” – Because Deviantart doesn’t allow you to have more than one featured folder (unless you have a subscription for your group), what I highly suggest is that you put the gallery list option underneath your featured Gallery Folder.
This way deviants dropping by can see what’s in all of your gallery folders with small thumbnails. If you don’t have any gallery folders, this won’t work. If you want to know how to create gallery folders and manage them, refer to part one of this tutorial.

“Favorites” – Every group should have favorites, right? Well, to make the favorites on my groups seem more special, I only put the winners of my contests in there. Just another way to make your members feel happy/special!

“Affiliates” – To be polite to the people that affiliate with my groups, I always put this option on my front page somewhere. You don’t have to, of course… but to be nice…


:star: Part Three

- Make Custom Buttons for your group using HTML codes

A lot of people have asked how to get custom buttons for the front page of your group. Here's how:

First off you need a place to upload images for your custom buttons. I recommend either your DA stash or photobucket.com, which is free. Upload your images.

Next, you need to write this code only without the *s.

<*a href="LINK1"><*img src="LINK2"></*a>

Where Link1 will be the URL (link) to where you want your button to lead,
and Link2 is the URL of where your button image exists.

To get the URL to your button image, you can right click on it and then you'll most likely see something that says "copy image location" or the like.


- Center images and text using HTML codes

To center images and/or text, write the following code only without the *s:

<*div align="center">

When you want the centering to stop, write this ender code only without the *:

</*div>


- Bold, Underline and Italicize Using HTML codes

To bold text write the following only without *s:

<*b>

When you want the bold to stop, write: </*b>

To underline text, write the following only without *s:

<*u>

When you want the underline to stop, write: </*u>

To italicize text, write the following without *s:

<*i>

When you want the italics to stop, write: </*i>
