SeeU TutorialWell I know its a little late but most people on Votaku and Youtube know by now that I got Seeu for Christmas. Since I never really put anything special for seeu here ... Well I'll make this little post. This will be a little mini tutorial with tips.SeeU Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seeu is by far my favorite vocaloid. You can kinda compare her to Sonika. No Seeu is not really muffled and very bad quality. The reason I compare the two is because they are both very versatile and great for people who experimenting and working with configurations. Seeu's Korean voicebank gives users a chance to mess around with phonemes that are not in a Japanese voicebank. The Korean bank only works with hangul input so you will be forced to work with her on a phonetic level ... But thats not bad because we want to work directly with her phonemes. Her Japanese voicebank is slightly higher in voice and has an over all more moe effect to her then

Know your Basics - Composition (the manip way)The Rule of Thirds is another one of those expressions that you have probably heard before somewhere but aren't quite sure what it means. This article strives to shed some light on this rule as well as on how to use lines and shapes in your compositions to lead the viewer's eye to the important bits. There are some compositional rules and pointers that no artist should go without knowing!Know your Basics - Composition (the manip way)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Technical Part
Rule of Thirds
Thankfully this time, there are no hours upon hours of dry reading to be done because the Rule of Thirds itself can be explained rather easily:
"The Rule of Thirds states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections." (from the wikipedia article)

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.

Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)Most of us have heard about Colour Theory - be it in school or on dA or as a term thrown about by someone somewhere. But what exactly is it? And how do you use it? This is what this article is striving to explain especially in regards to photomanipulation.Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Technical Part
Thankfully, there's tons of reading material about colour theory. Starting with the wikipedia article on the subject (which seems rather dry and boring to be honest) and ranging to tutorials written by deviants for their fellow artists. Those are the ones I'd like to recommend to you to get started in colour theory:
Still too dry and technical?
Okay, let me put it this way: the use of colours in your artwork can determine its mood and atmosphere. If you do it well, it can draw in the viewer and make them see what you want them to see by putting emphasis on certain parts. Colour theory gives you a way to know in
Know your Basics - PerspectivePerspective comes in different forms, the most obvious & basic of which is the use of the word in relation to the appearance of relative orientation in a three dimensional space. At first, it may seem irrelevant to photomanipulators, (because, hey, the photographs already are perspectively sound,) but putting more than one photograph in context requires that you learn to see what makes sense and what doesn't.Know your Basics - Perspective4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Technical Stuff
Perspective (from Latin perspicere, to see through) in the graphic arts, such as drawing, is an approximate representation, on a flat surface (such as paper), of an image as it is seen by the eye. The two most characteristic features of perspective are that objects are drawn:
Smaller as their distance from the observer increasesForeshortened: the size of an object's dimensions along the line of
sight are relatively shorter than dimensions acro

Get it for iOS here.(Not available on iOS anymore.)
Many have requested a port for it to Android, but sadly, I never had one of my own to create the port.
And I intend not to update OuO for the older iOS devices, since updating it will mean limiting the app to only run with the newer hardware.
Today, :iconelpatrixf: have created an OuO app for Android based on the one I made!

It's hard to say "port", since from what it looks, it's better than the original OuO!

On a side but related note:
1 1/2 years ago, OuO was meant to have a sequel: OwO
It was meant to have many features and junk, but as development progresses, the end result ran poorly on mobile devices, so I halt the project.
To make the project not go to waste, I edited it and made it into a simple web player, for thos
