My Tumblr Postniaro.tumblr.com/post/12290832…
Posting it on DA too because I feel like more people would see it here. /squints

I feel like featuring. So here's some stuff I think are interesting and that I use/would like to use more often. <: They're in no specific order.

:iconx-divider1::iconx-divider2::iconx-divider2::iconx-divider2::iconx-divider2::iconx-divider2::iconx-divider3:
Nattoli's Blog - www.nattoli.net/
An anime artbook, magazine, and doujinshi review blog.

Nattoli's blog features a lot of beautiful work. If you're like me and don't want to buy art books or sit in Japan town to browse-- this is a great site to go to. They have an extensive overview of many artbooks (including some pictures!) and have a really interesting and pretty extensive archive. I haven't been frequenting this blog too much but I think I will start more to get inspiration.

Shimaya キレイな本をつくるために 紙原稿について "About this document to create beautiful paper" - www.shimaya.net/howto/kamigenk…
Doujinshi size templates and guide.

Not much to be said. It is in Japanese and I recommend using the google translate option to be able to at least read some of it. But I use it mainly to check out appropriate sizes for paper.

Pixiv フリー素材1000users入り tag - www.pixiv.net/tags.php?tag=%E3…
Pixiv tag, lots of downloadable patterns.

Just be able to navigate Pixiv. Very basic navigation skill. If I can do it you can LOL But I won't teach you... So good luck.

Color Palette Generator - www.degraeve.com/color-palette…
Enter the URL of an image to get a color palette that matches the image.

'Nuff said. Just enter a URL of an image to get some nifty color palettes!
:iconx-divider1::iconx-divider2::iconx-divider2::iconx-divider2::iconx-divider2::iconx-divider2::iconx-divider3:

Okay, that's the end of my really short feature LOL... I just want people to know of these useful sites so that they can use it as inspiration too. /squints I know a lot of people already know of a few of these sites but I figure, someone has to find a site somehow.

The other day, I attempted to put together a huge list of some professional and semi-pro women artists over on my tumblr,  because it seems like too often women get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there who are all amazing, who offer unique points of view and design solutions, and who need more visibility and recognition. While putting this list together, I was really excited to find tons of new artists I'd never heard of before. 

Click here to see over 70+ artists I've assembled so far.  It's very image intensive, so be warned. ;) 

Also feel free to suggest or mention more artists, either here or on the tumblr link. :)

The process is fairly simple. You load the desired texture on to Genesis in Daz Studio 4 (in which ever form, V5, M5 etc) Then under the 'Surfaces' Tab, select the icon in the top left corner of the window. Scroll down to Map Transfer. On the top left of the new window where it says 'Template' right click in the box area. Click 'New Template'. On the right side of the window is a list of the surfaces your current 3d model has. Daz have been very helpful here as they have numbered the relevant parts of the map that belong together. So it is then a process of Shift+Left Click each map region in turn. Once you have the whole group selected left click and drag them over to the Template1 that you created. Then change the 'Target UV Map to M4. You will need to have the Template1 selected to alter the 'Template Options' in the lower part of the window. I would advise a quality of 10, and dimensions of 4096. Then select an output directory. Here I would create yourself a dummy runtime in the Poser format. I would see how the texture artist folderised their character and set the dummy runtime up the same. Obviously changing the character name to the one you are converting.

Tip time: DO NOT USE THE DAZ TEMP FOLDER FOR OUTPUTING THE CONVERTED TEXTURES. Because if you close Daz Studio before moving the new textures to the dummy runtime, it will clear the temp folder on closing. Which is a royal pain when you could have spent a great deal of time converting many textures.

What I did to create the Ohi'a Mat's was use a donor set of Mat files (Ovidius) then I swapped out all of the relevant textures to Ohi'a (in The Poser Material Room). Such as diffuse, specular, bump etc. Then I saved a brand new set of Mat files into the dummy runtime. Under the Pose and/ or Materials folders. Using the naming structure that Morris had for the original M5 version.

Please Note: Map Transfer does not convert genital mats between characters. It also makes a mess of the eyelash transparency. So use the Ovidius eyelash texture. Copy it to the Ohi'a dummy textures folder.

Limitations: Map Transfer may cause seams to show in high res textures. I have found this with both Raiya's and Morris's textures. I have found for full body shots the seams should be okay to render. Though portraits will show the seams up. Which will mean cloning out the seams in your chosen art package. Also avoid tattoos that cross seams as Map Transfer will make a mess of the maps.


If you need any further help give me a shout on: elvenesque@elvenesque.com. I use the same email address for MSN too.


Hope this helps

AlvaroArte asked me if I could suggest some books on realistic drawing and concept art which was timely as I've been thinking about writing a post about it. So, in no particular order here are some books I recommend.

Instructional Drawing:
Keys to Drawing (Dodson) - A lot of my early drawing lessons a knowledge was based in this book. Great exercises.
Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain (Edwards) - A cornerstone art book, it (re)teaches you how to really observe your subject with various exercises.
Imagination Station (Kistler) - While likely not applicable to you guys, it's a wonderful art book for little kids who find it fun and teaches good art principles.

Understanding Light and Color:
Alla Prima (Schmid) - This is not a how-to painting book but delves into how to think and understand light, color, edges, etc. My painting bible.
Imaginative Realism (Gurney) - This author of Dinotopia does a good job addressing how to approach realistically painting subjects that don't exist.
Light and Color (Gurney) - This second book by the author breaks down all major forms of light and color you'll have to paint and pinpoints key aspects.

Comics:
Understanding Comics (McCloud) - Was the first art book I read in a decade that presented art concepts I hadn't heard before. Not a how-to on creating a comic but a thorough journey to understand the unique medium (in comic format). Even if you don't want to make comics you should read this.

Comic Reference / Inspiration:
The Art of Hellboy (Mignola) - Full of sketches and comments, I look at it when I need to simplify. Mignola says so much with so little.
Cover Run (Hughes) - Gorgeous women and heroic men in a realistic, art nouveau comic style with sketches and comments.
Mythology (Ross) - Poured over this book when it came out. Ross' art makes the characters feel like living breathing people. This book gives you a glimpse into their creation and creator.

Other Reference / Inspiration:
Spectrum (any of them) - These annual books are a showcase of the best scifi and fantasy art for the year. Huge range of styles and subjects.
The Art of Star Wars Episode 1-3 (Bresman) - Fantastic examples of top tier concept art in a range of mediums with comments.
The Lord of the Rings Sketchbook (Lee) - A beautiful collection of hundreds of pencil drawings by the author who was a lead artist in creating the Rings trilogy.

Many other books have been influential to my art but I will wrap it here now.

You're browsing deviantART or are simply checking your message centre and find a wonderful art piece. You want to suggest it as a Daily Deviation because you believe it truly deserves to be seen by the community as a whole. But how to properly suggest a DD? This article will explain the process.

Things to check before sending a suggestion:


The first thing you need to check is if the artist has been given a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months. Volunteers cannot feature anyone who's had a DD in that period of time with no exceptions, as this has been hard-coded into deviantART's system. 

"But how do I check an artist's Daily Deviations?" you may ask. Simply go to their gallery, click browse and scroll down. If they have any DDs, you'll be able to find a link to them at the bottom of the page. Alternatively, you can add "/dds" after their profile url and click enter on your browser's address bar.

Screen shot 2012-08-13 at 9.04.29 PM (2) by alexandrasalas

If they haven't been featured in the past 6 months (the dates are visible under the thumbnails) you may proceed to the next step. But if they do, you'll have to wait until they can be featured again to suggest their art.  As a side note, keep in mind the number of DDs the artist has, some volunteers have a limit and wont feature anyone who surpasses that number.  

The next step is to check the gallery your suggestion has been uploaded to. Simply take a look under the deviation you want to suggest and you'll find it: 

Screen shot 2012-08-13 at 9.03.48 PM (2) by alexandrasalas

Each Community Volunteer who features Daily Deviations oversees a specific gallery or category and can only feature deviations from that gallery/category only. A Photography CV can't feature deviations from the Fan Art Gallery and vice-versa, for example. On that same token, please make sure the image is not a miscat as volunteers cannot give DDs to misplaced deviations. IE, a digital doll uploaded to Traditional>Paintings>Miscellaneous wont be featured by any of the Traditional Art CVs. If you happen to come across a misplaced deviation, please report it via the tools given on the deviation page. 

Once you have the category all you need to do is check which Community Volunteer is in charge of it. The complete list can be found in FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen? Another way of checking is this communityrelations' blog entry:

The Community Relations TeamThe Community Relations Team is made up of Community Volunteers who liaise with Director of Community Relations Moonbeam13
Community Volunteers help the community out by providing you – the community – with a specific contact point in relation to galleries, chat and forums. You’ll find them doing the following:
Helping run community challenges and educational projectsSupporting community eventsHelping moderate forumsBeing part of the #help teamBeing part of the team that moderate #devart and other official chatroomsLiaising with Moonbeam13 on community mattersBringing rockstar deviants to your attention via features, articles and Daily Deviations
Please read :faq85: before applying for a Community Volunteer positionNote that you must be 18 years of age or older to qualifyPlease do NOT send notes
Apply Now
This is a listing of our current open Community Volunteer positions within Commu


More often than not, you'll come across galleries that have more than one volunteer in charge. In this case, send your suggestion to only one of them. Suggesting a deviation to multiple CVs will never increase its chances of being featured and may cause confusion among volunteers.

Now that you know who to send your suggestion to, go to their profile and look for their Daily Deviation Suggestion Guidelines. Some volunteers have said guidelines written in a journal entry and others have them as a widget on their profile page.  All Community Volunteers have their unique set of rules you need to be aware of before suggesting a deviation. Getting to know these guidelines will save you time because you'll know if the piece you want to suggest wont be declined straight away or if you'd be better suggesting to another volunteer who features from the same gallery, provided it suits their guidelines.

It is also a good idea to check the Daily Deviations given by the volunteer in the past. This usually gives you a good idea of the quality of art they feature. You'll usually find a collection of their Daily Deviations displayed on their profile as a widget or on their Favourites page.

Once you've made sure the deviation and artist meet the requirements to be suggested, all you need to do is send a note to the Community Volunteer. Remember, always send your suggestions via note as comments or replies might not be seen and for volunteers is easier to keep track of suggestions in notes.


Sending your suggestion note:


Since you're already on the volunteer's profile, the easiest way to send your suggestion is to click on the "Send a note" button located at the top right of your screen. 

Screen shot 2012-08-14 at 7.01.53 PM (2) by alexandrasalas

By doing so, a window will pop up. This is where you'll write your DD suggestion note:

Screen shot 2012-08-14 at 7.17.07 PM (2) by alexandrasalas

The first thing to do when writing your note is to copy and paste the suggested deviation's thumbcode.  Most volunteers prefer to see a thumbnail instead of a link.  The thumbnail code will work in notes, even if you don't have a Premium Membership. You'll find it to the right on the deviation page in two places. The first one pops up by clicking on the arrow icon on the Share section, but some deviants have this option disabled. If that is the case the second option is to scroll down a bit and select the thumbcode under Details:

Screen shot 2012-08-14 at 7.35.13 PM (2) by alexandrasalas

Copy the code and paste it to your note. 

Some volunteers prefer when suggesters include a short summary describing why they think the deviation deserves to be on the DD page, but it isn't always required. This is why, like I mentioned before, it's very important to check the volunteer's guidelines before sending a note. That way you'll now if you need to include it or not. 

When writing your reasons, relate them exclusively to the art itself. Daily Deviations aren't supposed to be gifts, awards or given because a deviant is a nice person or a good friend. They're an art feature and should be given for artistic reasons only. Be as short and concise as possible, you don't need to write an essay to make your point. 

Finished doing your writing? Now's the time to hit the send button. Voilá! You've sent a DD suggestion!

Note: If you're already familiar with a Community Volunteer's guidelines, you may skip going to their profile and instead suggest the deviation by clicking the note icon on the Share section to the right, writing their username on the recipient field, then adding your reasons if needed and hitting send.  


After sending your note:


Now the waiting begins.  While some volunteers will reply to your note, this isn't always the case. This doesn't mean they haven't read your suggestion or that they don't care. Most of them are quite busy and get many notes a day so it's practically impossible to reply to every single one they receive.

Be patient and wait for your suggestion to appear on the DD page. If this doesn't happen, don't feel discouraged.  Keep suggesting more art!  By keeping track of the volunteers' DDs and guidelines, you'll increase the chances of sending a suggestion that will be accepted.


Other things to keep in mind:


  • Sometimes you'll come across art that was submitted years ago. Why not check the artist's gallery to see if they have something newer that is much better?  The idea of a Daily Deviation is to display the best of an artist's gallery and you never now how much progress someone has made until you check their work as a whole.

  • Maybe you sent a suggestion to one volunteer, but you find out that the deviation has been featured by them but suggested by someone else. As mentioned above, volunteers receive many notes daily with suggestions. Someone might have the same suggestion before you or in some cases, the volunteer might have found the deviation by themselves. Complaining about something like this in public (and/or privately to the volunteer in question) will only make you come across as someone who suggests DDs for personal gaining. Suggesting someone else's art is not about you getting your name on the DD page: it's about making another artist happy because they work is so good it deserves to be there.

  • Suggesting your own art is ok! We as artists need to promote ourselves and get our art out there. Don't be afraid and suggest your own work!

  • In some cases like Photomanipulation, citing references and resources is a must in the description. If an artist hasn't cited their sources, the deviation will not be featured.

RESULTS ACG CONTEST: Why Do You Do What You Do?

:trophy: 2nd Place Prize Winner goes to :iconsayoran13: with ACG Contest: Why Do You Do What You Do? EntryTormented by what I’ve left unsaid,
I can only voice through this page
These thoughts dancing in my head.
I spend my nights awake in bed
Trapped within an unseen cage,
Tormented by what I’ve left unsaid.
At times it feels like my world is dead,
Writing is the only thing that can engage
These thoughts dancing in my head.
Other people’s judgement I dread
Against their hate I silently rage,
Tormented by what I’ve left unsaid.
On these pages my soul is fed
I’m an actor, the paper is my stage,
These thoughts dancing in my head.
This ink flows, from my veins it’s bled,
My aching soul the letters assuage.
Tormented by what I’ve left unsaid,
These thoughts dancing in my head.
