"I wanted to translate from one flat surface to another. In fact, my learning disabilities controlled a lot of things. I don't recognize faces, so I'm sure it's what drove me to portraits in the first place.

What kind of contest is this, then? It's the kind where I shamelessly bribe you to draw my OCs in exchange for swag! But before we get to the delicious bait of my artistic trap, let's have a look at the rules and characters...
(je peux uploade une version francophone pour le concours si tu ne comprends pas cette version. Envoyez-moi une note).
Your entry must include one or more of Acaciathorn's OCs (more details just below).
You can use any art medium - digital, traditional, sculpture, photo manipulation, 3-D render, whatever - as long as it follows rule number one. You cannot, however, submit poetry or prose. Sorry!
You can enter as many times as you want in as many categories as you want. just don't hurt yourself

Mandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic TipsMandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic TipsMandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic Tips1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First thing we'll cover are some tweaking tips. Tweaking, not to be confused with Twerking. Almost everyone does it. It's one of the best ways to learn. This section of the tutorial will cover some of the basics that will hopefully help new MB3D users with tweaking. Just don't let words like iterations, raystep multiplier and stepthwidth limiter scare you off. You don't need to know the math behind these things. Just consider those words as lables to show you where a setting is and you'll do fine. That's what the GUI is for, to make using the program fairly simple. I'm going to use a sample parameter of mine from about 2 1\2 years ago which is a tweak in a long line of tweaks. You will find that I am guilty of a few things that I'm going to cover, so it's a good example.
As always, I like to mention that I am not a tech giant. I really don't know a lot of the technical aspects of Mandelbulb 3D. If you are interested in the technical
Mandelbulb 3D ~ Mastering 3D NaviBet that got your attention ~Mandelbulb 3D ~ Mastering 3D Navi4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well I'm sorry to suck you in by that devious title! I haven't mastered anything, but I did finally put together all the useful advice given in comments from a recent journal (http://haltenny.deviantart.com/journal/42966411/) I wrote on navigating with the 3D Navi tool. The funny thing is I brought up my solution to navigating at Fractal Forums back in May and FractKali responded with a much better solution than mine, and I either didn't read it thoroughly or simply didn't understand it. So I want to make it clear that I am simply passing along advice from the comments I've received here and at Fractal Forums. I just want to organize and better explain the procedure in case any have missed some of the comments.
I almost always offer this disclaimer. I readily claim that I am far from an expert with MB3D. If beaten over the head with information enough times, it eventually
The Lonely PathThe Lonely Path2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
I I always thought of Thoreau’s comment as simply a word game — clever but ultimately false at its core. A Valentines Day without a Valentine means being alone and alone means being unhappy. It’s taken many years to finally understand the truth in Thoreau’s words. We are never so alone as when in the company of loving family and friends, our Valentine companion held tight in our arms – but knowing we are lost, unfulfilled in our dreams and visions, and untrusting in our own inner counsel. Now I hope to one day seek companions
Tip of the Day: Mental BlindersSometimes you really have to just shut your brain off after making a good decision and just do it. Too many times we find that we know what to do but just don't do it. Today, come to a decision that is something you KNOW is a good one, then put on the mental blinders and just FOCUS on that task.Tip of the Day: Mental Blinders3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think part of what success I've achieved so far has come from being able to focus on one thing for long periods of time like Forrest Gump.

feature # IHello everyone!feature # I2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I finally decided to promote some people who literally hit me and deserve to be seen. I'll try to make it quite regularly to show you my latest favorite artworks!
This is my first feature and I admit, there are many pieces presented below! I think my next will be much smaller.
I hope you enjoy it !
Bonjour tout le monde !
Suite à un sondage réalisé il y a plusieurs semaines de ça, je me décide enfin à promouvoir certaines personnes qui m'ont littéralement frappées à l'oeil et qui, je trouve, méritent d'être vues. Je vais essayer d'en faire assez régulièrement (environ une fois par mois) pour vous montrer mes derniers coups de cœur !
Ceci est ma toute première feature et je l'avoue, il y a beaucoup de pièces présentées ci dessous ! Je pense que mes prochaines seront nettement plus concise mais bon, ça, c'est l'avenir qui nous le dira.
J'espère que cela vous plaira, et que la bonne découverte sera au rendez vous !
Manip Challenges #003I wanted to do this last weekend, but ended up doing everything but this But here they finally are: our third edition of the Manip Challenges! I hope there will be as much participation as last time (though I have to admit, reaching over 30 entries in the middle of the vacation period might be a bit optimistic - I suppose you've been spoiling me so far ) In any case, it's about having a challenge and not about breaking any participation records, so let's just get it on I can't wait to see all your gorgeous entries!Manip Challenges #0033 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Please don't forget to credit and notify all resource providers you use stock of - including the challenge stock!
You are given 8 stock images (see below) of which you have to use at least TWO in a way that we don't have to go hunting for them with a looking glass.

The Grey in this City...It creeps into every little corner, every curled-up warmth, every carved-out resting place, every ragged crevice. It rasps in my throat and it gasps when I wake and it chokes when I fall and in every way every single day is coloured grey.The Grey in this City...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
'And the grey in this city is too much to bear'
And it weighs so heavy and my shoulders ache.
But every heartbeat, every crash of the drum makes it mine, shapes it, takes it, funnels it into a bottle and stoppers it. Down in one and the devil's on your back and in your veins, or maybe you're in his. And the damage is done and the image was never sacred and just watch how quickly you are no longer forged in wrought iron and starlight, how quickly you are cast in low plastic.
Where's the ache that shaped the shadows and placed the light with such care? Where's the firelight and the cold deep dark?
I will not live just to grow old.
These hands are not content, no leeching grey thoughts will stop them when they choose to build.

What Keeps Mankind AliveThere are trees here, but they hold their branches high because they must in order to survive, there is no strength to them.What Keeps Mankind Alive3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The river flows.
The Oracle squats, fat and artificial and effluent over the muddied waters as they crawl sluggishly through the car fumes and discarded cans.
This place of polished plastic architecture and the pre-aged pre-torn clothes feels sick. The people are made of the same lifeless plastic as the cartons and crisp packets that creep along the currents of the near-stagnant water. Their faces are blind, noses high, and I hate them and I pity them and I fear becoming like them, losing that which has always been me, that which fundamentally makes me happy and makes me something other than what they are.
The eyes that flicker from under perfectly messy hair do not like me. Some days I feel the stares so hard they make my shoulders tense and my hands clench, some days I feel stronger than them, some days I feel so fucking surrounded I stupidly, reflexively look
Tip of the Day: having a missionTo have great success, you must have a good 'mission. What would you do if you could do anything or be given any job you want? Start from there. Don't worry about how hard it might be or how to make money from it yet. Figure out your mission and THEN figure out how to make a living from it.Tip of the Day: having a mission3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The best missions don't come from taking but from wanting to give back. However, achieving goals for yourself can give you the success and ability to give back more.
