Fantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 23I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsFantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 231 year ago in Art Features More Like This
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

What Tiger parts are used for:
Claws are most often inlayed in gold to make pendants for necklaces. Local people believe tiger claws provide good luck and protective powers to those who wear them. The selling of claws appears to be almost exclusively carried out through gold shops, although antique shops and souvenir shops also sell them. Also used as a sedative for insomnia

A tiger's canine teeth are used to make ornamental jewellery. Some local people believe tiger canines provide good luck and protective powers to those who wear them. The sale of canines is predominantly carried out through shops selling gold, but shops selling precious stones, antiques and souvenirs may also sell tiger canines. A
Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on HalloweenArt By :iconraggedy-annedroid:Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on Halloween1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So it is Halloween. I am a cosplayer. Here it is, the greatest of all dress up holidays! And I am always disappointed. Here are the top 5 reasons it sucks to be a cosplayer at Halloween.
1) Friends (including friends of friends) come out of nowhere to ask for costumes. They just ask for a little help. On their giant full body armor masterpiece. The week before Halloween. Because you know, you make costumes and it's easy for you. And the price? Well, it's "for a friend" price. Which is always "free" or "I'll pay you $20 never" which boils down to "get you a shot of Jack sometime." Sadface.
2) Costumes in my closet everywhere, but none for Halloween. Yes, I have over 60 costumes. No, none of them will ever be recognized at a Halloween party. One year I dressed as Pris from Blade Runner out on the town, which I thought would b
A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and ArtWith movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and Art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend
The Concept Artist's Trophy ListI needed to come up with something to motivate me, to make me start drawing personal stuff again, cuz I really miss this place and all of you, guys. Therefore, I compiled this list of imaginary trophies to collect. Each of them requires a specific task to be accomplished in order to "unlock" a trophy. Of course, it's all about personal growth, gaining traction and things like that, so cheating (needless to say) is useless. I'm making this whole thing public for accountability purposes and last but not least -- if any of you is playing LittleBigPlanet PSVita -- add me: arcade_monsterThe Concept Artist's Trophy List2 years ago in Personal More Like This

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser

What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a
Wacom Intuos 5 Touch M - ReviewWacom has just launched its new Wacom Intuos 5 product line. I just got one of these (Medium size), so I thought I'd write a small review about it, since it's the most fundamental tool for my job.Wacom Intuos 5 Touch M - Review2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been quite a few years since my last upgrade. For the record, before that I've also used a Graphire 1 (A6), an Intuos 3 (A6), an Intuos 3 (A5 Wide SE), and a Cintiq 21UX (currently I've been using the Intuos 3 A5W).
First of all, here's the official specs of the model:
Dimensions (W x D x H): 380 mm x 251 mm x 12 mm
Active area Pen (W x D): 224 mm x 140 mm
Active area Touch (W x D): 224 mm x 140 mm
Weight: 990 g
Multi-touch Support: yes
Wireless Accessory Support: yes
Resolution (per point): 0.005 mm (5,080 lines per inch)
Tilt sensitivity: ± 60°
Maximum reading height with pen: 10 mm
No. of ExpressKeys: 8 capacitve keys
Touch Ring controller: 1
So in terms of specs there's nothing exciting about it, it's the same specs with Intuos 4 and almost the same with Intuos 3. Actual

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

Here's a free brush set that contains basic rendering brushes, as well as custom brushes I've made. You may use them in any of your personal and professional work, and of course I highly encourage you to make your own as well
Made in Photoshop CS3, they should work in previous versions and of course will work in CS5 & CS6.
Thanks and enjoy!

Hope for a new yearHere we are, the last hours of the year. We survived another apocalypse, and in between the last one in 2000 and this one now we have battled through government and social changes, corruption, emotional turmoil, internet censoring and technological wonders coming to life every day. There were wars, terrorists, revolutions, tsunamis, earthquakes and nuclear meltdowns. Scientists made blind to see and paralyzed people to walk. There was, in good measures, both good and bad things.Hope for a new year1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I look around and its still a wonder we, human beings, are still alive, as individuals and as a civilization. At times it seems we titter on the brink of extinction, other times it seems we are ready to leap forward and change for something greater. There is always something keeping us back, both from evolution and for involution.
We crawl slowly forward, earning for change and fearing it, striving to improve but always holding back, giving our future on the hands of a few that seem more interesting in keeping
