About The BreedWhat is an Arabian Warmblood?About The Breed2 years ago in Personal More Like This
On the surface, the definition of an Arabian Warmblood is simple: it is the crossing of Arabian and warmblood horses. However, there is far more to this definition as a breed type. First and foremost, the Arabian Warmblood is bred to be a supreme performance animal: known to excel in eventing, hunter and similar disciplines. Functionality is their primary purpose, with the ability to compete on the international stage. In crossing the two breeds with specially selected studs and broods, the aim is to create a light, supple warmblood that combines the grace and presence of Arabians with the scope and athleticism of modern warmbloods.
The initial motivation in the cross was to refine the warmblood type without losing movement, as can often happen in Thoroughbred crosses. Special care is needed when selecting the sire and dam to ensure that the resulting foal is not disadvantaged in other aspects such as scope or height. The Arabian blood should add mo

The Training CourseRight, so on to the fun stuff! Since we all want to start showing our horses as soon as possible only five images are required. This is supposed to be fun, after all, and we don't want to ask for too much.The Training Course2 years ago in Personal More Like This
3. Accepting a saddle/rider.
4. First ride.
5. Final: Discipline training.
While we only require five images, there is so much more that you can do to train your horse! If you want to go that extra mile, here are five more images that we would love to see!
1. Worst fear discovered.
2. Good/Bad day.
3. Trailer work.
4. Visit from the farrier/vet.
5. Play time.
Note that you are more than welcome to draw your horse training/doing something that we haven't mentioned.
You can show your horse doing anything, as long as it fits into each category. For instance, when doing your groundwork image you might show a young foal to accept a halter or, if you are working on the lunging image, you could work t

The Credit Point System - Mini Shows March 2012 Mini Shows - CP points reducedThe Credit Point System - Mini Shows4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Due to their usually lower quality and the masses of doodle-like headshots. If they weren't mini show entries, they would only count 0.5 CP mostly and that is unfair to those who put time and effort into normal events and do training pictures. We therefore decided to change the CP that is given for Mini Show Entries and make it depending to the type of entry. High Quality Entries (Quality like a usual show entry) for Mini Shows can be accepted (see exeptional entries)
Mini Shows count for
headshot drawing for mini show: 0,5 CP + 0,5 CP for placing 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
full body drawing (sketchy, no background, lineart) 1 CP + 0,5 CP for placing 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
exeptional entries (full body, full shading, background): 1,5 CP + 0,5 CP

How to get started with Pixel ArtLately I have frequently been asked what programs I use for pixeling and/or animating and also in general how I go about it. Now I currently don't have the time to create a tutorial of my own but I figured until I will be able to do so I could at least give you some helpful tips and link you to some tutorials made by others.How to get started with Pixel Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
About the programs I use
I do pretty much all the pixeling itself in Photoshop Elements 8.0 which sadly enough isn't free. But don't worry, in general photshop is even a little overpowered for pixel art, I simply use it because I am most used to it.
Technically you can even use Microsoft Paint for pixeling, after all the only two things you really need to be able to create pixel art is a pen tool and the ability to zoom in far enough. The only real disadvantage about Paint is the lack of transparency support so you can only create pixels with an opaque background.
However I can offer you a really great third optio

"Sam Dead" from "The League of Elder"
Currently I find myself in a phase of making advanced use of colors in my work to enhance depth, mood and to underline certain values.
While doing so, I found a necessity to share this knowledge and insights in some kind of a reference. There are practical tips for everyday use, this post is useful for traditional artists as well.
When working in a professional environment there is rarely the time to go out and do plein-air paintings or studies, this is something artists have to do in their spare time, to form the foundations and understanding of perception of our environment. On the other hand it is extremely important to see processed works as well, to see the differences and to learn from these observations.
Basically, all knowledge artists have, is built upon passion and is acquired through personal experience, museum-visits, observation and anatomical studies have to be done

I stared Dahvie intensively. I changed my position and made a displeased noise as I tried to get his attention.
He wouldn't look at me, he just crossed his arms like a five year old. I sighed and got up from our bed and walked up to Dahvie.
''Dahvieee!'' I said with a sad tone. He just glanced at me. ''Can we please stop fighting? Pleeeeeeease Dahvie?''
''I was right'' he said shortly, still not looking me in the eyes. I was so tired of fighting and all I wanted to do right now was to end this
stupid fight and go to sleep with my loved one.
''Fine, then. You were right, I was wrong. Peter Pan isn't a creep. Now, can we please go to bed?''
Dahvie looked at me with a small smile on his face and opened his arms.
''Aww Jayy'' he said and hugged me tightly.
''I love you'' I murmured in his ear.
''I love you too, now and forever''

Those of us using a DSLR need to be aware of the number of shutter actuation's. Every DSLR will, sooner or later, have it's shutter give out. We don't want that to happen on an important photo shoot or while on vacation so do yourself a favor and check it. I use this site - http://www.camerashuttercount.com/
Just upload the latest shot without resizing or changing it in any way and it will give you the exact number of times that your shutter has been cycled. I know most of you already know this but thought I would pass it along for those that don't. When that number gets close to the manufacturer's estimate it's time to have it rebuilt.
Love birds? love islands? then checkout
Spend some time looking at the videos etc. on the site.
