Hi :) - so I'm starting new series of journals with useful resources - mainly because I'm running out of topics to write about and I just like some diversity. (I'll continue to post general art/motivational journals too every now and then)
Here are some of my favorite youtube artists, that inspire me and I hope that these resources might be helpful for you too.  :) (Smile) 



Level Up
'Level up!' is an idea of two Polish artists - Wojtek Fus ( WojciechFus ) and Darek Zabrocki ( daRoz ), who want to teach and learn from each other. Level Up has expanded a host team by amazing Jonas De Ro! There are weekly, 2 to 3-hours long livestreams with critiques, overpaintings and Q&A's. It's so wonderful to watch them paint and talks about important tips on art and life as an artists. Also check out their lovely Facebook group and website with lots of resources.



Sycra

Art videos that inspire, instruct, and entertain by Sycra Yasin, who is a freelance artist and online art instructor on YouTube and PencilKings.com. His videos are so educational and he explains art fundamentals so wisely and quite great to understand. He also has a lots of resources on his website



Proko

Instructional How to Draw videos for artists by Stan Prokopenko. His drawing lessons are approachable enough for beginners and detailed enough for advanced artists. His philosophy is to teach timeless concepts in an entertaining way. Really adore his figure drawing videos.



SinixDesign

Awesome videos - tutorials and speedpaintings by sinix. He provides different unique videos that offer people other ways to indulge in their love for art and all things creative. His "Montly Inspiration" videos are my favorite. 



CUBEBRUSH

Digital art tutorials by incredible artist Marc Brunet. It's so great to hear his thought-process along the stunning artworks that he makes and records on youtube videos. 



FZDSCHOOL
Captivating videos with lots of great insights by Feng Zhu, who 
has been working in the entertainment design industry for the past 15 years. There are lots of great advice and tips on art process. 



So, how about you - who are your favorite youtube artists? 

This week I found some lovely resources - two tumblr blogs about art/style/design - this and this one, awesome post about creative thinking by Grant Snider, great pinterest board about creative crafts, epic video of how were made the gravity scenes in Inception, the "secret door", that takes you to absolutely random place on Earth and inspiring video of Iain McCaig, who is best known as a principal designer on the three Star Wars prequels. :)


    


P.S. I quite frequently post some sketches and artworks in my art tumblr - snowmarite.tumblr.com/. and I have a weekly Music Sunday post on aerismade.blogspot.cm/  and weekly 8 songs playlist.
and a youtube art channel:) (Smile) 

Have a wonderful week!

:dalogo: deviantART announcement: 

Hello fellow deviants!

We regret to inform you that some of our users are currently experiencing some trouble connecting to the site or have slowdown issues while browsing. The deviousTech team is aware of the issue and working on a resolution. We sincerely apologize for this delay in service and assure you we will be back up and running just as soon as possible. Your patience is greatly appreciated.


:bug: deviantART group bug:

Be careful while approving group submissions because the message center shows all the same folder for all the submissions. Click on the submission to display it individually to see the right folder it is submitted in. The first submission is in the right folder. You could approve one by one but make sure to refresh between each submission. I opened a ticket but it was not answered yet. deviantART already have a lot on their hands with the connection bug.

If your art has been rejected from group, please be considerate. The bug is not that obvious for smaller groups.

Group spotlight: RecommendAFriend


:iconrecommendafriend:

The Recommend a Friend project was created in order to expose the work of deviants that are recommend by their friends. The friend also includes a tidbit about why we should check out their recommended deviant's gallery. The friends that recommend also get featured monthly!

Basically, features for ALL!

:groups: RecommendAFriend was originally featured made by rainylake on her profile. In April, she decided to upgrade it to a group. This group is a wonderful place to help your friend get more exposure. Please take a look.

Recommend a Friend Project: Relaunch!Holy cow, it's finally getting relaunched! With a bit of a makeover that is :giggle: Please be sure to read all the new info.
Introducing, the new place for RAF deviants(icon pending :B )
RecommendAFriend
The Idea
We now have a group! :eager:. Instead of being featured on my profile, your feature will be posted through the group. The concept is still the same, you just send suggestions to the group with all the information filled out (look below for more details). I will then create a journal featuring your friend, that will be up for a full week! The journal will feature five recommended friends. It will also include a tidbit about the recommended friend, including why you should check them out. Once a month, all of the suggesters will be featured in an epic roundup journal.
HOW TO RECOMMEND
Please send the group RecommendAFriend, a note Note  titled
  Recommend a Friend: Edition #15 Welcome to the #15th edition of Recommend a Friend :la: If you want to get a friend and yourself featured, check out the launch journal.
phbeks

PHbeks is one of the kindest people I have run into on DA lately. He puts all he has into his art. Going out hiking even when he has trouble some days just to be able to stay motivated to get around. He has two rare genetic diseases even more rare together but you wouldn't know from his talented photos.

            Since we're publishing our art everywhere on web and can't control who can use it, and no one like to see his/her photo being claimed as others work. 
Watermark or copyrights help a little to prevent others from stealing your efforts, or at least make it difficult for them to erase your name. 
I found many ways to add a watermark and I'll list few for you to try them out !

Method 1 : Text tool Watermark in Photoshop 
Method 2 : Brush Watermark in Photoshop
Method 3 :  Plug-in Watermark in Photoshop
 



DETAILS 

Method 1 : Text Tool 

Step 1 : 
Choose Text Tool ( T ) 



Step 2 : 
Pick your favorite font 
and start typing your watermark 





Step 3 :
 You can re-position and re-size your mark by the Move tool 



Step 4 :
 Decrease Opacity to make a transparent watermark




Method 2 : Brush Watermark

 
Step 1 : 
Open Photoshop then go to " File > New " 



Step 2 : 
Select the below setting for your new project then click "OK": 
Width: 1000 Pixels
Height: 1000 Pixels
Res : 300 Pixel/Inch
Background : Transparent



Step 3 :
With text tool ( T ) and after choosing your font write down your text



For adding another text below or somewhere first click on the check mark [✓]



Then while you still using the text tool click where you want to type another text.



after you're done click on the check mark again [✓]

Step 4 : 
Choose the crop tool 



Select your text 



Then click the check mark [✓] or press " Enter " on keyboard 



Step 5 : 
Go to " Edit > Define Brush Preset "



Then name your watermark and click OK 



Now your Bush is ready to use !

Step 6 : 
Open your image then click on brush tool

 

Right click anywhere on your photo and go down to the end of your brushes you will find your new brush, click on 



Change opacity by the slider above the image



Or by the Opacity slider above layers, while you're selecting the watermark layer.


And you can change the color of the watermark 



resize your brush and click on the image where you want your watermark to be 




Method 3 : Watermark Plug-in 


I recently found a helpful watermark plug-in from Russell Brown. [ Download Link ] 
ٍScroll down into Russell Brown site you'll find a link of tutorial video beside " Adobe Watermark Panel 2.2.2 "
I still didn't use it but it's easy, download it and and start discovering. :love: BTW it's FREE la in love

dA Connection/Slowdown issues for users



For several days, many dA users are not able to access the site. Connection/slowdown isses, pages not loading means many who are trying to access the site or contact people are not able to do so. This is leading many people to confusion. deviantART is already aware of the situation and they are continuously working to get it fixed soon!

They have announced it in their deviantART Status section of help:


You can keep up to date with any announcements by email they make through deviantART Status by subscribing to it (click the link below):

However, many are not able to even access the deviantART Status page, as the same issue persists there, as you have to log in there to click subscribe. Many who have commissioners waiting, status updates and other communications waiting means the people on the other end of the communication are not aware why the people they need to contact may not be able to respond for this period of time, so this announcement is to let them know about this.

Anime And Manga Week


September08September14

Anime & Manga Week



If you'd like to contribute in our next Anime and Manga Week on December 29th - January 4th, please send a note to CRAnimeAndManga titled "Anime and Manga PE article" with a short description of your idea you would like to write about in our Anime and Manga Week!
See you all next time! :dummy:


Hello everyone and welcome to the Tournament! If you are looking over this then I can assume you are interested, or even insanely interested in participating in the first wrestling event of the group. Well! You've come to the right place!

Down below will be listed with the first part of the tournament. Including rules and guidelines of how this is going to be setup. I'll try my best to make this as simple as possible!

*********** NOW OPEN ***********


Wrestling Tournament Part 1 of 2

Rules

1. Do not get dramatic if you did not win.

2. Only one of your Nara's can enter the Tournament at a time.

3. You MUST make a 130 x 130 portrait of your Nara with a very simple background (for tournament placement)

4. The deadline for training images to earn stats will be October 20th

5. After October 20th we will be looking over the stats to make sure everything is right.

6. Don't forget to link your training images (very very important)

7. Have fun!! This is suppose to be a fun event for people to enjoy.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Working on your stats


Each cat will have three stats to work on/be using for the tournament. However since no one's cats are higher than Novice at the moment. The cutoff will be 5 for each stat. The more wrestling tournaments we have the more stats you can earn. (these can only be earned through official group wrestling events and will stay on your cat)

1. Speed - Swift attacks // Dodging

2. Stamina - Determines your health points (7 points of health for each stat)

3. Strength - Attack damage // Withstanding hits


Example:


(don't worry about the RNG stuff, I'll be handling that when it comes to rolls so it won't be difficult to understand)


Speed - 3/5 (+3 to make a hit / +3 to dodge an attack)

Stamina - 3/5 ( health starts at 30 so...plus 21 = 51 hp)

Strength - 2/5 (+2 to attack rolls / +2 to reduce damage rolls)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Earning your Stats

Each stat point earned will be through training pictures. One training image = 1 stat point.

Depending on the stat you wish to point up will determine the training image you will need to do.

THEY MUST BE FULL-BODY FULL BACKGROUND IMAGES!!!



For examples....Speed would require the training image to be of your Nara running or doing agility of somekind.

Strength could be of your Nara doing weight pull.

Stamina could be of your Nara swimming, doing toughening exercises.



Please Place this stat guide on your Nara's ref sheet info

Wrestling Stats:

Speed - 0 / 5

Strength - 0 / 5

Stamina - 0 / 5


Once your Nara has reached the limited stat total for each one, the next wrestling match will become higher 10, 15, etc.
So we will have Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced level matches.


Alright guys! I hope this helped someway and isn't too hard to get down. Please feel free to ask questions you may have and I'll get to each one of them as swiftly as possible.

ProjectComment presents the community of deviantART a project that will question what it really means to be a commenter, an artist, a member of deviantART. All of these challenges relate to commenting in some shape or form, and we sincerely encourage everyone to take part! :la:

You do not have to be brilliant at writing comments and we are not asking you to perform miraculous feats. We are just looking for people willing to make a difference. It is all too easy to receive constructive comments, but giving them is equally, if not more, rewarding.



Each week, a challenge is set with the deviations of those who participated in the previous week featured in a news article. Many thanks to LiinaPhotography, OlivCater, CameronKobe for participating in Week 35!
