So you want to be a CV...Sometimes I like to wander through the communityrelations group, and I always come across comments from people so willing to become volunteers, I constantly come across people who say "Applied for ___ gallery!", "I can't wait to be 18 to apply!", "I so want to be on the team!", there are some who list the complete CR roster in their personal profiles, who openly say in their tagline, signatures or devIDs "Hoping to be a CV one day", etc. This is specially evident in the The Community Relations Team journal, where the opening positions are listed.So you want to be a CV...4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To those people: take this journal just as a personal opinion and a friendly advice from a fellow community member, someone who loves the community and is willing to contribute and give back the way one can. This comes from my personal experience, shouldn't be taken as the whole Community Relations nor deviantArt's official stance.

dA Life #08: Hosting a Contest on dAWelcome to the eighth dA Life blog, a series created to help you enjoy your time on dA and use it's many tools for sharing your art, appreciating other people's art and taking part in the wonderful community that we have here.dA Life #08: Hosting a Contest on dA4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hosting a contest on dA is a really fun way to inspire other artists and do something positive for the community. If you've never run a contest before, it can seem like a daunting task so to make it a little easier, here are some things to consider before you create your contest and open it to the deviant public...
Your contest should have a theme. It can be as vague (Aliens, Summer, Cats) or as specific as you like (Alien Cats in Summer). When choosing your theme, take time to consider it's appeal to your potential entrants. A less specific theme is likely to attact more people as the scope for entries is wider. It depends on whether or not you want your contest to be huge - sometimes, bigger isn't always bet

Purple Hair Fail, Question and Feature #70Two attempts and no purple-ish hair for me. Turned out more of a black cherry color, which is now turning into a very dark brown. Which you can see in my latest makeup look here: SO, I'm not sure what I want to do now. I've been thinking about doing one last attempt at purple, but part of me is kind of over it and just want to move on to something else. But then there is another part of me that really wanted to have my purple hair moment. I dunno. I need a fall/winter color...any thoughts or suggestions on what I should do with my hair when I go back to the salon at the end of the month?Purple Hair Fail, Question and Feature #702 months ago in Personal More Like This

Do's and Dont's of Digital PaintingDo's and Don'ts of Digital PaintingDo's and Dont's of Digital Painting2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The possibilities of digital painting and digital art in general are almost infinite. There is basically nothing you cannot do as long as you just know how to approach it. Yet an abundance of programs and tools has both advantages and disadvantages. Knowing what to favour and what to avoid can be both a huge time saver and help you sidestep frustration.
What we will focus on in this article are some basic tools and techniques of digital painting; we'll try to root out pitfalls and see how to avoid them. Mind that all of the points mentioned below aren't rules carved in stone; there are always cases where breaking the rules can be much more fruitful for a certain effect than following them too strictly. With time and practice you will gain good judgment over when to follow the guidelines and when to leave them aside.
Note: Names of certain tools might vary depending on t

Tip of the dayUsing Defringe for better blending png-files and cut-outs.Tip of the day2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We all use them premade cut-outs and png-files (things made with 3D-programs like Daz).
Very easy to use, just past it in your work, resize it and jobs done. But when you look a bit closer,
you see there is a small 1 or 2 pixel line around it that doesn't blend in very good. If your background is on,
the dark side you will notice it more than on a lighter background. Also when you resize the png or cut-out, this little
line of pixels becomes more visible.
With the defringe-command you can remove this effect quite easy.
This command can be found by going to Layer--> Matting (it's on the bottom)--> Defringe (workspace photoshop cs4 or cs5)
http://sta.sh/01mgnfgr1kkc (click on link for screenshot)
Standard already 1 px is chosen. Normally this setting wil do the job, but if the result isn't satisfying then go a step back (alt+ctrl+Z)
and try 2 pixels. The whitish pixel-line will now be removed or disguised, so the png
Sucker Punch Behind The ScenesSucker Punch Behind The Scenes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Although I would love it if you watched the video, it shows no where near as much work as was put into this shoot. Some of this is embarrassing but I love reading about people's mistakes and how they overcame them. So here are mine.
I bought the costume last November, thinking I would be able to shoot the next week, edit easy peasy and be done in a month. Right.
I booked the first model several times over the course of 3 months but she flaked every time. I'm actually quite happy, as Laura turned out to be PERFECT, easy going, and an overall better model. Laura was kind enough to shoot with me twice, as I was hesitant about the poses I picked out. We kept some, threw out others and added new ones for the second time around.
For the WWI shot, I first tried to make the Notre Dame ruins by hand or find realistic models used for game tables. Turns out no one buys them anymore and thus I had no luck finding one. I att
