Do it your self guide for ApophysisLately I have been getting a lot of questions on how I make my images. So I have decided to put together a little article to help people get started with apophysis. I am linking tutorials that I know can help produce quality results I am not intending to take credit for any of these tutorials I am just sharing the resources.Do it your self guide for Apophysis6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1.What is apophysis? Its a free program used to create digital images based on mathematical equations. Don't worry the program does most of the work. A more basic way of looking at it would be you start with a single point and then add to it in different directions until you have an image.
Here Are a couple examples of what you could create using this program as you can see you add a lot of points to come up with a finished product. You can also see that the possibilities are virtually endless.
2.Where do I get Apophysis? The final version of Apophysis can be found here.

Clarifying an Issue with Stock ResourcesThere appears to be a fair amount of misunderstanding on the subject of stock resources so what I would like to do today is attempt to clarify several issues which are of importance to the artists who generously provide stock resources to the public for use and hopefully dispel the confusion and misinformation which is beginning to circulate.Clarifying an Issue with Stock Resources2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The first issue at hand is in regards to your personal stock terms

Officially deviantART maintains only one "automatic" restriction and that is "No Commercial Use" and that particular restriction can easily be overridden by the actual stock provider.

The Wonder Of WinterHappy New Year everyone!The Wonder Of Winter3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We got some snow for Christmas and a little afterwords, so it's nice and cold outside. Thank goodness I have very few reasons to go outside! Instead, it's nice to sit inside and look out side at the beautiful snow.
Here are some more Winter theme deviations that I found around dA that I hope you enjoy.

Well, Monster's University Was...Very well done and overall a great movie. ^_^ Lots of beautiful animation. <3 Great plot, hilarious jokes, great humor all together.Well, Monster's University Was...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was a tad disappointing though, a lot of Randall fans had hyped it up to be some big reveal on some huge tragedy in Randall's past, but really the movie had much more focus on Mike and Sully which I understand and have nothing against. Randall didn't have a ton of screen time and there was little on-screen development of his character. He wasn't bullied or anything ultimately tragic. However he certainly gave into peer pressure, to fit in with the "cool crowd" which can be a destructive force of it's own, but they didn't show any real tragic instances with Randall, there was a moment or two where he was shunned because of a mess up but nothing super bad.
I didn't cry, I'm almost disappointed I didn't cry. x'D And the movie is full of second-hand embarrassment. x'DD You have been warned. x'D
As far as Monnie and Randall go, I'm considering cutting Mo

Photoshop is a great program, but despite it's many features it's a bit pricy at $999. I created this list for people with smaller wallets and certain art needs.
The programs are listed according to what type of art they are best suited for.
Don't know what program will be best for you? Most of the paid programs have trial versions available, download them and see what you like best.

Pros: ability to customize brushes, ruler tools, user-friendly interface, some built-in screen tones. Can create "event" files, where others can watch you drawing long after the fact. Updated regularly.

so anyway, i have a padlock comic that i would like to finish by then, but... either i will get it done and be extremely pressed on time for homework, or i wont get it done because somehow ive learned how to not procrastinate (okay that last one is stretching it a bit). also, i have work.
the point is, i want to draw. very badly.
but i also need to learn how to use my time to do important homework as well.
so... yeah. i guess there wasnt really a good point to this journal anyway. except maybe... excuse to procrastinate more... must... resist... tumblr... ...

Warning: this project won't be spoiler-free. If you don't want to be spoiled for WiR, you shouldn't be here!
The rules are still the same but for all them people who are new here, this is the deal. The idea is to draw a Wreck-it-Ralph character and make one single color dominate the picture. Further down this journal are all the rules neatly stated.
The goal of this project is to unite fans of WiR from all over the world and express the love for the series in a single picture that is a mixture of styles, characters, preferences and of course color.
I assign everyone a 500x500 pixel square, you draw in it, and in the end I put all the drawings to

I put PSA cuz…well…iz kinda important…and not well known about ._.
Intro (important don't skip it you lazies >BI )
Given we're on an art site and there are a lot of people who try to get free art or just manipulate people in general I wanted to try my best to educate all you crazies, especially you younger crazies, so I can save you from getting into emotionally damaging relationships or friendships with people online.
I also felt very strongly to warn about this because once you're stuck in a friend/relationship with an emotional manipulator it is VERY HARD to get out, it can be a very long, stressful, and painful process, which may only end in each of you silently ignoring each other for the rest of your lives. So I wish to teach you all caution of this before it's too late--in other words this isn't trying to call someone o

Spring! WOOHOO! An end to winter depression and a beginning of more creativity, motivation, and all that good stuff. My kitten is nearly five months now, and getting looooong! Also Mom has a cat that our very good friend (and my adopted sister) gave us because she is extremely timid and can't stand the other cats in her house. She is a flame point Siamese and very pretty. And fat. And furry. XD Been watching My Cat From Hell to find ways to help her come out more.

Sebastian's Birthday!Some people may find it silly that I celebrate my character's birthday but I don't care. This will be three years since I created this amazing boy! Sebastian was the very first OC I had that I really gave a realistic personality. She started off being pretty shy and quiet, then he was very anti-social and usually avoided people, but now, he had grown into a very friendly and dorky character which I've very proud of.
