Reposting art on Tumblr and other sitesLike most tumblr artists, I have a huge issue with reposting art. Reposting, if you don’t already know, means just uploading the image from your own dash and making it into a new post, making your blog the source of the post. This is not acceptable in any way! Just recently I’ve had so many instances where people just take my art in general or WYDPAW (Walking your dog in a post-apocalyptic world) images and repost them.Reposting art on Tumblr and other sites9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Why is this harmful? It’s because you are directly impacting the traffic the owner of said content, and I am especially upset in the case of WYDPAW because I want all the sources to direct back to the actual graphic novel so people can follow! Like most creators of online comics or graphic novels, I put a lot of effort into this thing I’m working on and want it to have as much exposure as possible through my own original source. It doesn’t make it any more justified or legal if you add credit in the tags or

Look, at the end of the day, this site provides a service. You can choose to pay for it, or you can choose to not pay for it. It works either way. If you really don't like it, not only should you not pay for it, but don't use it. No one is forcing you to.
It seems like a lot of people seem to think that being a member of this site gives them ownership of it. It doesn't. Be grateful it exists. Be happy that it is (now) profitable. For a long time it wasn't. The people who work on it deserve to make some money - they work hard.
If you don't agree with any of this, I think you're lacking in perspective. There's nothing keeping you here if you don't want to be. I think DA does a great job of listening to a vast community and trying to make changes to please it's members. It can't be incredibly dynamic and flexible to accomodate e

Depthcore XLIII - 'TIME'The Depthcore Collective is proud to release it's 43rd themed chapter exhibition, "TIME". As we near our 10th anniversary, this seems to be an appropriate subject for us as a collective to reflect upon. Ten years have passed by, and the students and teenagers who once populated the group are gone, replaced by full time freelance artists, independent small-business owners and focussed creative professionals. Finding the time (oh, the puns are endless with this theme) to create these Chapters has become increasingly difficult.Depthcore XLIII - 'TIME'4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Cosplay : You Aren't AloneSometimes, life gets in the way and cosplay ends up on the backburner.Cosplay : You Aren't Alone4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then along comes an idea or two that REALLY kickstarts the cosplay inspiration once again!
I've been so busy of late that, for the past few months, cosplay just didn't appeal to me at all... until recently. With our Left 4 Dead group coming up, as well as more X-Men costumes for One-Sky-One-Destiny and I to make, my drive for cosplay has taken a HUGE upturn! Hell, Jenn and I were sat in my garden in semi-darkness last night as I spray-painted guns and sanded down chainsaw parts XD
I love it when that drive comes back. I feel like I can do anything. HURR.
I love that feeling. Not once has it bothered me that most of my peers are out drinking while I'm sewing or gaming. When I was a teen, I was... something of a rebel, and was very much the stereotype of my age group in regards to going out and getting wasted at every opportunity. When I got into cosplay and stopped all that, I think it came as something o

Medium - Tilt-shift effect on Photoshop.Hello, I'm back with tutorials, and for the first time it's about edition on Photoshop. The objective will be making a miniature looking picture (tilt-shift). I'd say the perfect photos for this effect are those taken from heights, like on top of a building or on top of a mountain or something similar. Nevertheless, you can experiment with other kids of pictures and then tell me or show me the results. I'm always interested on knowing more.Medium - Tilt-shift effect on Photoshop.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For this tutorial, I've chosen an archive photo from Paris, taken on top of the Arc de Triomphe, and showing La Défense in the background:
And after some basic edition on Lightroom 3.4 I get this:
I'll explain now how ot get the tilt-shift edition step by step:
1st - We open the picture on Photoshop, and we turn on the "fast mask" by clicking here:
2nd - With pencils at 2500 and strenght at 0%, we paint the area that we want to look unfocused to make the tilt-shift.
3rd - We turn off the fast mask mode, and deselect and invert the selection:

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )

Greetings to all Poles with their holiday!
We, Ukrainians, understand how it is difficult to get the freedom for the country. And we are very happy, that our west brothers got it and saved it in those terrible times. Ukraine could not save her independence in those times, but the support of Poland in the end of XX century helped us and we could get our freedom.
We hope that Ukraine and Poland will be friendly at last forever.
Thank you, Poland, for the support and help!
Long live Poland! Long live Ukraine!

Too SoonIn one of my recent comics I casually mentioned the shooting at The Dark Knight Rises premiere in Colorado. The comic wasn't about the shooting, nor was it making light of the shooting. However, some people weren't able to see past that and felt it was offensive and in poor taste.Too Soon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am really sorry that my comic offended anyone. It was never meant to trivialize the deaths of the victims of that event, nor was it trying to make fun of them. I was never suggesting or inferring that you should ignore the tragic event, nor trying to be dismissive of the event. I wasn't saying you shouldn't feel empathy, or even sadness over the event. And I especially wasn't trying to paint myself as being uncaring towards the victims.
If you'd like to help the victims through this terrible event, please check out this http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/20/aurora-theater-colorado-shooting_n_1690093.html?utm_hp_ref=impact here. You can help by donating to The Colorado American Red Cross chapters, donate

What you as a European should read:

Where you can sign:
For some people it might sound strange.... million of people collection signatures. Here in Berlin... it's nearly an annual thing. Do we want Olympia (nope)? Do we want expensive apartments blocks on the former central airport (heck no)? Do we want to charge for parking in the outer areas of Berlin (yeah, keep dreaming... no)?
We are allowed to have an opinion and if it displeases the government if the results are not in their favor I couldn't care less. This is my right.
I have no idea if anybody actually knows how companies like Monsanto try to sneak into European territory. I like our ten million different corn types and farmers being able to sow their own seeds.
