Hi everyone! Welcome to the first of two articles about the film and animation gallery.
Our gallery is the part of deviantART where everything comes to life! Our community is relatively small compared to some galleries but it is a thriving and exciting one. The range of talent we have includes super talented design students through to professional motion graphic wizards!
With independent film and animation works on the rise over the years, it’s a really exciting community and gallery to be a part of right now!
For gallery descriptions month TimberClipse and I will be talking about the gallery as a whole, the application process, how the gallery runs and even a little bit about ourselves!

There are a plethora of brushes available to you on photoshop. This guide will explain different brush settings, as well as how to install different brush packs here on deviantART. This guide is for pressure sensitive pen tablets. It is going to be much easier to do things with a tablet. Ones by Wacom are good, and you can get a bamboo for under 99$ USD.
Basic Brushes in Photoshop
It's important to stick with default ones to learn all the settings. You can do so many things with the hard round brush.

Sans serif — Roman
In this article/tutorial I will show you how to design a typeface. I will cover the basics and show you how to design advanced letters as well. There is so much I can talk about though, so if people like this article I might expand on this with future articles and get more into detail. I will only cover the design though, so you will have to research how to do the spacing and programming and turn your typeface into a usable font—or wait until I might do an article on that as well, but I don’t have such an article planned anytime soon.
What will we design?
I will first show you how to design some basic letters for a geometric sans typeface like Futura, because it utilizes geometric shapes, which is always my starting point for every typeface regardless of style. O

Eeren's Features: HAIR!!Eeren's Features: HAIR!!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This time I decided to dedicate this feature to a particular and much more precise theme: hair!
Many people keep asking me how I draw my hair and when I browse other artists' deviantions hair is always one of the most eye-catching things for me (and for many other users, for what I can deduce from the comments)!
So... let's try to unveil the secret of hair together!
Since ancient times, hair has not only been a defense against cold, but it also has had great social significance for human beings.
It grows on most external areas of the human body and the highly visible differences between male and female facial hair are a notable secondary sex characteristic.
Hair has always been a sign of social and health status: they can represent ethnic ancestry, the growth of facial hair is a sign of puberty in men, while white hair or baldness are signs of age or genetics.
Not only hair may be a symbol, but the way it is styled can surely
How To Sculpt in Wax pt 1Well, as promised, I thought I should write up a little information on sculpting in Wax. It's not the first medium one would think to work in when starting out with sculpture, but it does offer a lot of benefits.How To Sculpt in Wax pt 16 years ago in Personal More Like This
That said, though, it's probably not the best medium to use if you're JUST getting interested in sculpting. It's primary benefit is that it allows for lots of clean sharp detail, which is something that's valued in the collectibles field. But we all know detail doesn't equal good work. As a prerequisite to wax, I think it would be best to start out sculpting in Super Sculpey. It's easy to get your hands on, and everything you learn from working with it is applicable to wax sculpting.
But if you're wanting to dive in and try wax, here's some help with getting going:
I personally use a few different kinds of wax with my sculptures. All of which are mixed and offered through private 'dealers' I guess you would say. ha! www.willowproducts.com is an excellent resource for gettin

before that you should look up some informations
you probably noticed that in my work it is often hard to distinguish if im using a zbrush model or just painined it all in photoshop
reason for that is simple.
my realism rendering is greatly based on 3 d rendering processes.
by this i mean as i learned 3d i became aware of the stuff we usually visually take for granted.
qualities of material, importance of reflectivity, ambient occlusion, and subsurface scattering.
to any 3d artist these are everyday terms, while 2d artists usually paint them without often even being aware of wheat they are really doing
for instance , a 3d artist will at any given point use 2 types of shadows. cast shadows from a direct lightsource, and ambient occlusion shadows which naturally appear more intensively the closer planes of an object are together.
i can get into this and make it a long discussion , but easier w
Photography Basics - Artistic Nude Style! [MC]This article was originally posted in November 2007 and covered all genres of photography.

While there's no quick and easy secret to taking 'good' photographs, and there's a whole world of experimentation and education out there waiting for you to jump into, there are some aspects of artistic photography that you'll want to think about every time you pick up your camera. The techniques and camera functions detailed in this article can be used by anyone with a camera, whether that camera is a top of the range SLR or a compact digicam.

Perspective exerciseIn addition to perspective grid with 1, 2 or three vanishing points I took another exercise - from tutorials and courses. Exercise with 4 values - sometimes there were 3 of them or 5, it doesn’t really matter. This practice shows some principles of air perspective and repeating rhythms (when same or somehow equal objects are placed on different layouts to show the distance and depth clearly).Perspective exercise1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As long as I’m still a student, any comments and corrections are very welcomed!
Step 1. From black to white.
Take 4 grades - white background, two grays (66 and 33% Brightness) and black at foregound. Each layout place on its layer and make corrections accordingly.
Work with hard brush with no textures or value grades with transparency and flow control off.
The triangle tip shape in my choice as long as it provides interesting and fresh shape and you can rotate it to get new angles. I also recommend to make each layout in order, one by one from background to foreground, making com
Anti-Aliasing - Manual VS AutomaticWhat is this mysterious "AA" thing that people talk about? Is it good, or bad or in-between and how do we use it to our advantage in Pixel Art?Anti-Aliasing - Manual VS Automatic2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Firstly, AA = Anti Aliasing. Looking up aliasing and anti-aliasing on Wikipedia brings up a fairly confusing explanation, so instead of trying to get overly technical, I'll explain for you what my current understanding of AA is. Please note this is not "THE" official and only way of doing it or explaining it, and that I'm still learning about these things just like everyone else. This article is aimed at helping everyone access the conceptual idea of what AA is all about, and how to start using it themselves.
Basically, I would describe AA as;
"The extra "in between" colour pixels placed between steps in pixel lines/edges that create the illusion of a smooth curve (even though pixels are square)."
What makes this a lacking description is that it's very hard to explain what I mean by the "steps" in a pixel line or edge, and
The Matter of the MassesI've been painting for a few years now, but I feel like I'm only beginning to grasp the importance of this concept. I'll quote Robert Henri (1865-1929) from his book, The Art Spirit, which is packed full of such profound wisdom.The Matter of the Masses1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Robert Henri stresses this point:
"Insist on the beauty of form and color to be obtained from the composition of the largest masses, the four or five large masses which cover your canvas. Let these above all things have fine shapes, have fine colors. Let them be as meaningful of your subject as they possibly can be. It is wonderful how much real finish can be obtained through them, how much of gesture and modeling can be obtained through their contours, what satisfactions can be obtained from the fine measures in area, color and value. Most students and most painters in fact rush over this; they are in a hurry to get on to other matters, minor matters."
"The beauty of the larger mass is primary
What to Work On... Part Two: CompositionCompositionWhat to Work On... Part Two: Composition7 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm just drawing a character on a blank page right? What do I need composition for? This is where I would have to smack you. Even if you're drawing on a "silly little trading card" composition comes into play. Each side of your card is a part of the composition, therefore, play with it. If you're designing two cards together, design them together, not how well they'll work independent from each other. Composition is important, no matter WHAT you're working on. Over the years, I've found that it doesn't matter comic, fine art, animation, good composition comes from everywhere. Film, comics, you name it. I'm focusing primarily on film because, wow, did they have it right. Not saying that comic artists don't do beautiful compositions, but... I discovered something. Inbreeding begets MORE inbreeding. Look at comic artists today. Look at who

Using techniques... digital & trad. mediumTechniques...Using techniques... digital & trad. medium3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm wondering what kind of technique are people using while they draw traditional and digital media... for example: If they draw traditional on the same way as digital (painting, coloring, shading...)...or opposite. Because for me digital and traditional are the same. It was always annoying when teachers in school told me that digital is much easier than traditional...that in digital you just press once with the brush and you already have whole image. Hahaha... that's noooooooot true at all I spend more time drawing digital works than traditional... Then I always say to people like that...Try and see for yourself if it's easier than traditional
Well, what I want to say...and ask. Last years I drew more digital drawings than traditional, so when I started to paint canvas, I drew on the same way as if it would be digital painting...only that I had one layer If you saw my digital tutorials... at first I did basic colors, t

Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for

The poll I posted months ago said you guys wanted a Qilin universe contest, so here it is! :'D FINALLY!
This contests' theme is the Four Seasons, meaning that you will have to draw one (or more!) of the three main characters in a seasonal setting of some sort. This can be a holiday theme, or simply weather or clothing design appropriate to the season you pick.
All you have to do is draw and upload your picture to your gallery. Any medium is welcome. Once it's up, send me a note with a link or thumbnail to your image.
I will then add it to a folder called 'Four Seasons Contest' in my favourites, where all entries will be.
That way you can keep track, even if I don't reply to your note directly. C:
The deadline is February 2nd 2012, I will judge the entries and announce the winners within the following week.
