Are highly intelligent or very talented people better able to hide their misery from loved ones, thus making it all the harder to “read” them and help them?

In this tutorial, i will explain how i created some of my recent "isometric" works. For example:

Staircase to Heaven by tatasz Surface by tatasz

Softwares needed: Apophysis and Chaotica.
Prerequisites: you will need some previous knowledge on how to use Apo and Chaotica. If you have any doubts, please check those out:

Plugins used: square.

TIP 8 - lazy skewing

Sometimes, you can first tile and then skew, since unskewed squares are easier to tile. Can be handy when you need to tile a reasonably huge surface with skewed squares.

For example, lets make a pattern like one below. You can tile directly the skewed squares, but you can also tile "default" squares, add a common linked transform (as described in Part 2) and skew the whole block at once.

Unskewed block                                                    Skewed block
Sk1 by tatasz Sk2 by tatasz

In the parameters below, check transform 2: it is the block`s container, and it is the only skewed one.

<flame name="sq" version="Apophysis 7x Version 15C.9" size="777 510" center="0.978061373034762 0.826019851119642" scale="98.690655" oversample="1" filter="0.2" quality="1" background="0 0 0" brightness="4" gamma="4" gamma_threshold="0.01" estimator_radius="9" estimator_minimum="0" estimator_curve="0.4" enable_de="0" plugins="" new_linear="1" curves="0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1" >
   <xform weight="1" color="0.52" symmetry="-1" square="1" coefs="1 0 0 1 0 0" chaos="0 1 0 0 0 0 " opacity="0" />

   <palette count="256" format="RGB">

TIP 9 - Triangles

In some situations, using just squares could lead to overlaps. When this happens and you need some triangles to complete the pattern, you can use, for example, starblur by zy0rg.

Some Usage ideas

You can use your isometric tile as a standalone piece:

Mv25n by tatasz

Or tile it using linears:

Surface by tatasz

Or use a foci final transform:

Builder by tatasz

Those are not the only options: you may try putting your isometric patterns into hypertile, grand julian, splits elliptic, spherical... The possibilities are endless.

Nearing the End...

Mon Sep 29, 2014, 10:55 AM

Hello to all of you lovelies! :la:

Love Heart by LOVEMAYUlollollol by LOVEMAYULove Heart by LOVEMAYU

I have a few announcements!

1.} My "Journey Through the Underworld" contest will come to an end tomorrow! You still have all of today, and a good majority of tomorrow to get an entry in! Please have a look at the rules here:

Judging will begin on the 2nd of October and winners will be announced
no later than October 7th.

A Journey Through The Underworld Contestants
1.] Create a digital, photo manipulation, or traditional artwork depicting what you feel
a journey through the underworld would look like. Please feel free to do your research.
Many cultures believe in "The Underworld" but have different views and portray them
as they view them. I would like to know your view.
2.] All images will be judged equally on creativity, and technique.
3.] Your image DOES NOT have to be dark, horror, or macabre related. Remember, this
image should be created

You can have a look at the other entries here:

Journey Through the Underworld Contestants

There are only 9 entries so far, and I had hoped for more. I hope you will have a look, it may be worth it to enter! :happybounce:

2.} I have opened a new Photo Manipulation group:  Manipulating-Legends This group is strictly for manipulations based on legends, folklore, and myths. Please do not submit regular manipulations, they will be declined.

3.} I am weary about my next contest: "Lago Delgi Idoli". If there are not enough entrants to unlock all of the prizes, that contest will cancel. All of the points up for grabs through Manipulating-Legends have come out of my own pocket. I would like to see that contest be successful. You can find the rules and theme here:

Behold: The Ultimate ContestI will be offline for all of September, and possibly a good portion of October. I am scheduled to have surgery on September 2, and will need 
recovery time. So I am going to post this now, in hopes that I will come back to some extremely amazing works of art! :la:
Current Judges:

HOSTED BY:   :iconManipulating-Legends:
This contest will be PHOTO MANIPULATION ONLY
If you are going to enter this contest, you must follow the rules.
There will not be any changes, or exceptions made to any of them.
This contest will also require research to be done, in order to best
create your Photo Manipulation entry.
Lago degli

If there are not at least 18 entries per level at the close of the contest, it will cancel out and the contest will end with no winners. If you would like to help with donations please note me. All entrants must link to the contest journal in the description of their entry. Please help spread the word! :la:

4.} I have started three new boxes on my profile. They are: Daily Favorite, Weekly Favorite, and Monthly Favorite. Keep an eye on my page, you may find your work in one of them! :happybounce: I have decided to begin trying to suggest DD's again. Those works that find their way into the "Monthly Favorites" box beginning in October, will be my one and only suggestion for the month. I have been here over a year and have not received one, and have only had one of my suggestions make the mark, so LOT'S OF LUCK TO YOU! I will wish for the best :la: :excited:

Haunted Dolls and Creepy Clowns are Here!
Found a great contest at :iconcastle-of-cards:
You should join in on this one.....
This is what the blog had to say:
In light of the upcoming Halloween holiday, I'm calling for artwork depicting either haunted dolls, creepy clowns (or both!) After watching "The Conjuring" and the most recent episode of "Face Off" wherein scary clowns were the challenge-I got inspired. Below are the specs:
Bullet; Blue Size- This is one of the few times in the year that I am not requiring a "card" shaped size. I hope that allows for more freedom in your creations.
Bullet; Blue There MUST BE either a haunted doll or creepy clown in your image. You also may have both in your work. In fact, I encourage that idea. :) (Smile)

  #our generation contestThe 70s were a wild, hippie-filled time, Michael Jackson and Madonna set the tone in the 80s while wonderfull movies like Forrest Gump, The Sixth Sense, Mrs Doubtfire (bless you, my captian), Tatanic and many more dominated the 90s followed by great polical change (the first black president of the US, the first woman as Germanys Federal Chancellor, e.g.) in the 2000s.
So many things are happening in the world. So many things to leave a mark (good, bad or neutral) on you as time passes.
Now my question is: What defines your generation? Was it a certain couples of year, only one event or the overall "feel"? :)

  The Illuminated World ContestStock & Resources
The Challenge
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig

Hello Friends, Watchers and Visitors,
I have started a new Contest, called "Twisted Tales" 
* To be clear from the start, this is a PHOTOMANIPULATION-Contest!!!
* This contest is not for professionals, but for beginners and intermediate users of photoshop!!
There are a lot of fairytales, urban legends you can choose as inspiration or maybe something from your favourite movie/tv-series, but
your work has to have a twist in it or maybe a refference to a horrormovie. You are free to choose the stocks you like, but they have to be legal!!
I support stocks from other websites like pixabay etc., but no google, imgur, lenagold etc.. 
Give credit to the stockproviders and i like direct-links to the stocks used in your work.
You may enhance your work with some digital painting, but not from scratch!!
I won't except explicit sex or horror, the twist should be subtle and not to disturbi

The Last GiftGod traces the letters on tombstones, fondly
remembering the deceased’s first steps
into His house. When He closed
the gates of Eden, the whole world
became a cemetery: the untouched garden
a hospital waiting room, overflowing
with flowers to be arranged
upon funeral wreaths, waiting for Him
to bestow His last gift.
  The Carpenter's BrideYour dreaming face betrays no conniving
lies; do you dream of sheep or kangaroo
courts handing down guilty verdicts, diving
into pools of laundered money accrued
by men with caterpillar mustaches?
Can your lurking Cheshire grin meet my eyes,
or is our great depression succotash
made with shelled oysters lead astray by wise
men gone to the dark? Keep your looking glass
spotless, and keep me on the other side
of reason, of justice. This last impasse
leaves no way out for the besotted bride
who saw too late; your guilty, bloody hands
have ripped apart our only Wonderland.
  Butterfly SundaeMr. Dipple runs the ice cream shop a few blocks from the school. I like going there because the words and flavors mash up in weird ways. The word strawberry tastes like peaches; chocolate is cashews; pistachio is vanilla, and vanilla is oddly floral. It’s like getting a double scoop for the price of a single.
Mr. Dipple tastes like butterscotch. I like that, because butterscotch is the same color as his mustache and the stripes underneath his apron. He’s Oliver’s grandfather, so that’s where he took me. Out, I mean. Like, not really a date, but kind of a date, you know? No hand holding or anything, but he did open the door for me and that’s kinda embarrassing but kinda really sweet too.
He asked his grandfather to whip us up a sundae; I didn’t realize until it got to the table that it was one to share and that’s also kinda embarrassing but really sweet in every way possible. Vanilla ice cream, chunks of brownie, whipped cream, and what I knew t

Ghosts of a Belle Dame"Those that go do not return,"
tales tell of the woods, be wary;
no good can come of entering.
Not that anyone lives to speak.
This path was his quickest means
with dead branches and peeling bark.
Everything falling away
like a corpse shedding its skin.
He knew the cost of his road
and soon grew fearful of it.
Gusts of wind forced his step
and the copse invited him in.
There were whispers in the trees
and eyes in every shadow.
His mind was not a trickster
and the forest possessed no life.
A faint hand fumbled out,
and he felt it against his skin.
Alas, his eyes could not perceive
what he knew to be there.
"Hide not in the gloom,"
he spoke into nothing,
"- the winds and moon betray you."
He choked through ash and dread,
"And you are revealed."
An apparition of light and pain
flew from the dark in earnest.
A knight of old armor and crest
whose face was stricken with woe.
A word could not escape him
and he motioned to the Earth.
Scattered in piles around them
were the bones of visi
  It's the ApocalypseRed sensors rotated and his gears resonated within him.
He could hear the mass silence that echoed endlessly;
no wind wafting through trees or horns blaring…
- only ghosts.
He sensed the crunch of metal and rust grinding
and the clank of disused limbs popping into place.
The mechanics of his body had forgotten basic processes…
- and he felt ancient.
Saved recordings worked through his hard-drive like memories
reminding him of times with oceans of cities, flocks of humans,
and towers so tall he could stand next to them and be called…
- brother.
The lenses of his eyes fluttered and a new world was upon him;
the sun shone so brightly, alloy sweated from his torso
and the sharp sand beneath his feet grated
- and he began to erode.
The Earth was not as he had left it…
- with farms of humans and armies of titans like himself
who worked to save their creators from their own destruction.
He paced the wasteland they had sought to prevent
and wondered..
  I Love You In DisguiseJeremy Crenshaw was sitting in the same place he sat every day in fourth period English; far away enough not to be noticed, and close enough to admire from afar. For the last three years their schedules had been almost identical; but somehow English was the only class he had with him their junior year.
Braden Morgan was charming and sweet. He had an air about him that drew people in, even those who were unwanted. Because of this, he was constantly surrounded by his jock buddies and busty groupies. Jeremy could never find a moment to speak; to remind him of when they were younger and when he once admitted that they were best friends.
Braden's body had firmed and his stature had grown those last few years. He kept his head clean with an attractive buzz-cut and enough dirty blonde stubble to remind others of his maturity. He didn't play any sports, so most attentive teachers and coaches ignored his facial hair. Instead he made his mark in art class and drama, neither

  DA Starters 51 | Thelovelydaedra:fellalovesgroups: Let's welcome another DA starter! I love deviantART!
Hi! Please introduce yourself. What are your interests?
Well let's see, some of my interests would have to be drawing, video games, music and many others. Those are just my basic interests.

How did you find Deviantart and how did you decide on your username?
I found DeviantArt just through searching though the internet one day and clicked on a website name DeviantArt and look around on it for a while then said "hey, I want to do that too." And here I am.
I came up with my username through my love for Skyrim. I wanted something to do with magic and power in the game, and I've always worshipped the daedra in Skyrim. So it just popped in my head "You are going to be the loveliest of all daedra!"
  DA Starters 50 | AlexandreMasquio:fellalovesgroups: Let's welcome another DA starter! I love deviantART!
Hi! Please introduce yourself. What are your interests?
I am at the moment practicing portraits, which is what I mainly post on my account. Some are made from reference, others from my mind.

How did you find Deviantart and how did you decide on your username?
I found deviantart because when I looked for art on the internet, it frequently redirected me to this site, so I got interested in joining, and my username is my real life name.
How would you describe your art style?
I have had many styles over the years, but my current style on DA is portraits that are meant to be as beautiful as possible. I am practicing faces at the moment, because I b
