A Brief Discussion On Limited PaletteA Brief Discussion On Limited PaletteA Brief Discussion On Limited Palette10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
We all know that temptation when we see a pretty new colour in the art-shop, or the urge to create a mesmerizing colourful artwork while planning a painting. We then use our favourite colour(s) in full force - by means of as much as we want - and we often have more than one favourite colour....
Aftermath: A muddy or unreal canvas! Colours do not look right and did not turn out exactly as it was in our mind - not even close and harmony is far away! It turned into a visual cacophony!
What might get wrong? A lot of things! But specially all those pretty colours you put at will!
It is not bad to paint with many colours - many big artists paint with more than 70 colours on their palette. Even we do not finish a painting in less than 10 colours - right? The difference is that the famous or big artists have mastered
So you want to digitizeIn this tutorial I'm going to attempt to explain how to autodigitize images into embroidery files. There are many different software programs out there. Here is a link to some free software called Stitch Era: http://www.imprimeo.net/howget.htmSo you want to digitize3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this tutorial I'll be showing you how to digitize using PE Design Lite!
This software is best used in conjunction with an image editing program like Adobe Photoshop. I've found that PE Design Lite is quite finicky with colors so you need a high quality vector image of the design you want to digitize.
So the first thing you need to do is find or create your design. Once you have a good quality image open your software.
Note: PE Design Lite has only the most basic of functions. For more embroidery options you'll need to buy/download more advanced digitizing programs.
Step 1: Open software
Step 2: Import your image
This is the file I want to digitize:
Step 3: Click the autodigitize button and the color grid will pop up.

What was Sakky's Annual Free Plushie Giveaway!?
Starting last year I decided to have a giveaway during the holiday season where one person would win a custom plushie made by me. You see, I have a week off between Christmas and New Years and while I'm SURE I could find plenty to do on my own in that time, I figure it's ALWAYS exciting to win something and I really like making things for people. Not everyone can afford a custom plushie so this is a fun and free way for people to have a
Smoothing, Sanding, & Buffing Polymer ClaySmoothing, Sanding, and Buffing polymer clay is definately something that you don't hear a lot about in the younger polymer clay community, but it certainly does make your pieces look a lot better in the long run. If you smooth, sand, and buff your clay AND add a layer of varnish - watch out, your pieces will look as bright, beautiful and glossy as a piece of delicious candy.Smoothing, Sanding, & Buffing Polymer Clay6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Have you ever noticed that translucent clay really isn't THAT translucent? Well, if you smooth, sand, and buff it - you'll be seeing differently! It really DOES get see-through!
Give these tips a try, and although I can't guarantee that you will get it right the first time, practice makes perfect, and sometimes new techniques take a little getting used to before you find a way that works the best for you.
Smoothing your clay is what you do to your clay before you bake it. Running your fingers along the surface and smoothing out bumps and impurities can work wonders on a piece and give it a ve
What We Know KnowWe used to think a smile meant you were okay,What We Know Know2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We were wrong.
We used to think “I’m fine” was the truth,
We thought wrong.
We used to think depression and sadness were the same,
We were horribly wrong.
A smile can hide so much pain.
A smile on their face,
A sobbing person that night.
“I’m fine” are two simple words.
Sometimes they speak the truth.
Sometimes it’s a simple lie.
Depression is hidden,
In someone’s soul,
To never be seen.

Location: Mount Holly International Buffet, Evergreen Plaza, just off of Rt 38 in Lumberton, NJ 08060. (NOTE! It's not found by maps because it's just re-opened this year after extensive renovation) It's in the section of Rt 38 between the Mount Holly Bypass and 206.
If you're heading west on 38, it's on the left, just past the Walmart (1740 Route 38, Lumberton, NJ. You can use this address, as the Evergreen Plaza is the plaza to the left of Walmart on the satellite map).
If you're heading east on 38, it's the second shopping plaza on your right past the McDonalds.
It's a big plaza with a big sign that says "EVERGREEN PLAZA", so it's rather hard to miss.
On the other side of 38 in that area is the old, closed landfill, so buildings are only on one side which makes it even
Encouragement for art studentsHey guys,Encouragement for art students5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Always being around students and teaching; there's something I've started to notice. I'm able to see which students push and have the strong desire to get better
and ones that draw with their mouth. I've stopped wasting time on the ones that draw with their mouth.
Most beginner students give up too easy. I see more potential in them then more advanced artists I draw with. There are some of my friends I stopped
calling out because I came to realize that they just kinda want to get better. ( I also don't want their attitude rubbing off on me.) They say they want to get better but it's clear that they just "kinda" want to get better. One guy asks a lot ," What are you working on? " As soon as I answer with explanation he always responds with, " Man I should be working on that." Then does nothing. Actually that's not true, he tells students the stuff I told him like he had figured it out. I don't mind becaus
Should Christians be tolerant?Should Christians be tolerant?Should Christians be tolerant?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today tolerance is being redefined to mean that all views are equally valid and all lifestyles equally appropriate. As such, the notion that Jesus is the only way is vilified as the epitome of intolerance. Rather than capitulating to culture, Christians must be equipped to expose the flaws of today's tolerance, while simultaneously exemplifying true tolerance.
First, to say all views are equally valid sounds tolerant but in reality is a contradiction in terms. If indeed all views are equally valid then the Christian view must be valid. The Christian view, however, holds that not all views are equally valid. Thus, the redefinition of tolerance in our culture is a self-refuting proposition. Moreover, we do not tolerate people with whom we agree; we tolerate people with whom we disagree. If all views were equally valid, there would be no need for tolerance.
Furthermore, today's redefinition of tolerance leaves no room for objective moral judgments. A modern

Artist Alley First-Timer? What You Need to Know!
A little advice after my time at the artist alley.
An original article by ArtByMelissaM
Artist Alley: My First Time!
Many of us have been to some form of comic or anime convention and traveled through the artist alley. The first time I ever went to a convention was WonderCon in San Francisco, California, and the first place I stopped was at the artist alley. I remember being so surprised that there was actually a place completely devoted to artists. After browsing through the artist alley and meeting some of the artists, I thought to myself, “One day, you’ll be here, too.” About 5 years later, I was coerced into getting my first artist alley table at Sac-Con in Sacramento, California on March 6th, 2011.
Preparing to have an artist alley table was one of the most stressful thin

Things dA Needs to Fix - an art featureLet's be honest, folks.Things dA Needs to Fix - an art feature4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Things are not going my way, so there is something very wrong with dA right now. To help solve this, I've devised a small list of things that could be done to make my time here more enjoyable. Your list may vary from mine, but I figure that I'll go over the things that I feel need to be the center of dA's attention until I am personally satisfied.
First and foremost, every time I log into dA, a cake should be hand-delivered to my door, perhaps one like one of these.
The more colorful and whimsical the cake, the better.
Next, every time I submit a deviation, I should get a complimentary fireworks show that can be seen perfectly from my window, so that all I need to do is look away from my screen in order to see the fireworks.
And it should be an elaborate fireworks display, I don't want any slacking on th

I knew what was going on, since my Inspiration doesn't smoke, so, when it didn't come back as I expected, I decided to send my Will to Draw looking for it in order to bring it back to me.
It turned out to be a bad idea, since I never saw either of them again.
It's about a month now.
No need to mention how much I could use their help right now.
I tried to do things without them, but it didn't really work out... Of course I can still draw, it's not like one can lose the ability to do something when head traumas are not involved. Problem is, I'd rather wash dishes or spend the whole morning on the couch with my dog as a blanket than draw.
I know what people like to say in this cases...
"It's not art block, it's just you being lazy"
Yeah right, I'm so lazy I'd rather clean the whole house or stare the wall the whole day than do what I love the most. You're a genius, my problem is solved now, thanks.
