Know your Basics - TexturesThere are a lot of tutorials out there on how to create / photograph texture as well as how to use them on a technical level, but the question of why and when to use textures is rarely touched. This article wants to fill that gap and therefore looks at texures from a slightly different perspective.Know your Basics - Textures9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures in Manips as you know them
For a photomanipulator, the first thing that comes to mind when hearing the word "texture" are images that can be used in soft light or overlay mode to texture a manipulation or parts thereof. What most manipulators therefore have in mind, are images like the following:
Beautiful textures, sure, and useful, too, but have you ever thought of doing more with them than the aforementioned overlays? And have you ever considered using other kinds of textures, too?

One year in dA..with a big hug....My friendsOne year in dA..with a big hug....5 months ago in Personal More Like This
When I first became a member of this beautiful site, last year, I couldn't have imagined the love and the support I would receive. But it just happened. You have always supported me with your encouragement, advice and positive criticism. Even more, you were there for me in personal matters. There was a time when -due to severe personal problems and being overwhelmed by feelings of betrayal and frustration- I wanted to leave dA, but you have made me believe that even if you feel betrayed and lost, there is always hope, and the hope takes the face of art and kindness.When I create art, either good or bad it doesn't matter, I feel that I move a step forward...away from nasty attitudes and feelings. So simple. I want to thank all of you for being there, for being who you are. You keep me strong and you keep me going... My hug is yours...
Thank you so much!!

Secondly, here's the first feature for the winners of the second contest I hosted for my novel "The Autumnal Equinox".
Spoiler Etiquette and Castle UpdatesHello all,Spoiler Etiquette and Castle Updates5 months ago in Personal More Like This
First off, I just want to say that while I will be posting spoilers I will not be posting things that have no right being posted. Tuesday it was unfortunate that two pieces of information saw the light of day. They have since been removed, but have recently resurfaced via shameless spoiler websites. If you want to see them, find them yourself I will not be spreading them around.
I also will not say any spoilers directly in this group. The most you will see is the title of an article or name of a video (and the link). I respect the people that are trying to go spoiler free. I even wish I could do it, but I'm not strong enough. Please respect people and tag your spoilers on twitter, tumblr etc.
Now, to get into the good stuff.

I know, it's been a while since the last journal, but I had my bachelor exams and diploma project, so I've been quite busy. Nice thing - I'm almost done now! Which means I'm ready to do commisions, just send me a message if you want me to paint something special for you!
But, I've promissed you a news about my new literature project Many of you know about "Dark Confessions" and I keep working on it, but this one - is my baby called "Electric Fence". I kept it a secret because I wasn't sure about plot at first, than characters and setting. And now I feel ready to share part of this experience with you. It's distopian SiFi novel about Chicago 1974. In my universe, during the World War II humanity created a virus 'Chimera' which should have magnified all the phisical potential of human body in order to create super soldier. But things went wrong, as it usually happens, and virus started to kill and change carrier's body in all the horrible ways possible. Many people died, th
Series Advice (please give your imput)I don't even think you guys will reply to this, but mind as well try. I haven't been posting on dA for a while, but over that time, I did improve very much, for I've been drawing non stop. So I was wondering if you guys would have an imput on a new art series (or a continuation of a past one). Like I mentioned, I don't believe anyone will reply, but if you do, tell me what you would want to see. The ones I came up with where: a Zodiac one (I'm pretty sure every dA artist does that on here at some point), a film noir one based of tv and movie characters (ex: Inara Serra as a 40's street woman etc). Would you want me to continue the DP project? Whatever you want, leave comments!Series Advice (please give your imput)8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Celebrating - ContestsHello everyone!Celebrating - Contests9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As some of you might not know, %Outstanding-Women turns one year old on sunday, April 7th. To celebrate, we will be opening two contests:
The Image of the Year
The Favourite of the Year
How will these contests work?
- As you might have noticed, I select every month a picture from both Gallery and Favourites and add them to each Featured folder. Those who are in the Featured folders are the nominees for each respective contest.
- The Image of the Year works for gallery, while The Favourite of the Year works for (guess!) favourites.
How will the winners be selected?
You will be voting on the deviation you like the most (or think you deserve to win the most; whatever - the reason why you're voting on that one is up to you). There will be one only winner for each contest. In case of a tie, a new poll will be created, where you will have to choose between the tied nominees.
