Prepping for the prepHello hello hello my gorgeous pancakeprinces and pretzelprincesses! I am Yewrezz and today I am going to tell you, my dear cakes filled with awesomeness, something about pre-prepping.Prepping for the prep1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We all know the term "prepping", as it is what we all need to do to make a horse look believable in a background where it doesn't originally belong. However, like I've noticed with chemistry, you might find it hard to know where to even start all this.
How do you get the most out of your stock image? In this tutorial I will try to do just that with the stock I choose. For some of you pre-prepping might sound like wasting precious time, but if you would really like to give your manipulation just that last hint of uniqueness... I would suggest reading on!
Tools I used: Photoshop CS3, basic knowledge in photoshop. Horse stock by fillyrox, background stocks by RiNymph-Stock and LucieG-StockIf you do have questions in where you can find some of the tools I mentioned,

GBD vs HomophobiaHello, all, and welcome to my anti-homophobia/anti-anti-gay Journal, where I will attempt to come up with a factual argument for as many anti-gay arguments as I can.

It's a choice!
When did you choose to be straight? Did you wake up one morning and say 'today I'm going to like the opposite gender!' And who would choose to go through the amount of stress LGBT people go through? Bullying, hatred, etc? And even if it was a choice, so what? People choose to be assholes and yet they can get married.
Hundreds of animal species exhibit homosexuality.
And you know what else is unnatural? Cars. Vaccines. Fact
Free Photoshop ActionsPhotoshop Actions: the professional's tool, the beginner's crutch, the salesmen's bag of tricksFree Photoshop Actions4 years ago in Personal More Like This
tldr: Learn how to post edit. Don't rely on actions developed by others and don't pay for them. Develop your own actions. Resources to help you along the way are all over the internet.
I recently released two Photoshop Actions, Bohemian Sundance and Parisian Rain, available for download for free on my website JFotography: http://jfotography.yolasite.com
Photoshop Actions, along with GIMP scripts, and other scripted, systematic, post editing procedures, can be very useful for professional photographers who have to edit a large number of photos in a short period of time. They are also useful for quickly surveying a large number of potential post editing routes, say if you want to go for a vintage feel, bring out

Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 9 Ive been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artists works that I have come across. It started off as stock I cant 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.Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 94 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Some of you might remember my previous journal with a list of brush-sets I've tried out and found very useful. Today I bring you more!
And honestly I must say that those few new sets contain absolutely everything one needs (I won't join the discussion that a real artist needs only one brush, because it's absolutely true but makes things much less fun and fancy ;))
After downloading and installing a brush set always test every single brush - play with it on a clear canvas, test it in different colours and using different strokes. Pick only those which you like and know how to use, delete the others or at least move them to the bottom of the list, leaving the most often used at the top.

5 Tips for Smartphone PhotographyThey're getting more and more popular, so what is the best way of utilising the camera on your Smartphone to ensure you get the best results possible?

If you've got a top tip that you think is useful please share it in the comments as well - this list is by no means finished!5 Tips for Smartphone Photography2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1) Clean Your Lens!
Unlike 'Proper' cameras, we're not overly precious about our smartphones. They go in and out of pockets and get left on all sorts of surfaces a lot of the time. Depending on the phone you have, you may be pressing your fingers into the lens whilst making a call without even realising it. So to get the best results, ensure your lens is cleaned regularly.
As with all photographs, composition is key. However you don't get much in the way of editing allowance after you've taken a photograph on your phone. You can chang

In our last poll we asked about your use of Twitter in promoting your Prints. Well, the community has spoken and a number of you have asked for some tips on how to better use Twitter to promote your work. So, we've put together some tips for you on how to leverage the Twitter platform in marketing yourself.
Twitter is different from dA, facebook, and tumblr in a number of ways. Perhaps the most important is brevity. Most tweets live and die in a matter of minutes. The vast majority of tweets die in the first hour. Also, you only have 140 characters to say what you want. So how the heck are you gonna use this thing to market your prints?
Here is a list of things that we've found to be massively helpful.

How I watercolor with little artistic knowledgeHow I watercolor with little artistic knowledge1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Welcome to my journal! Main reason I'm doing this is to test out a cool CSS thing! Because I love to waste time like that. But then, since I have not made a WIP journal in a while, I thought, "why not? Especially since I realized I have never done a painting WIP series, only for my splatter ink ones. Now I see why - when you're working with watercolor, everything dries so fast!
Even so, here it is! I'm going to try to give some hints or tips, especially for beginners. But first thin you should know is that I don't work professionally. At all. I'm really messy and I'm always covered in ink afterwards. Furthermore, as seen above, I have to edit my paintings a bit before I post them, because I don't have a scanner. Generally, I take photographs during the day, when I can get the best lighting.
I hope you enjoy! Feel free to ask any more questions in the comments!
Before you watercolor, good things to have on hand:

How To Give Better Comments
During our visit here at deviantART, upon submitting our deviations, what is expected next? Comments! However, here's a little fun past-time activity: take all the excellent, if not better, deviations comments in your gallery. Now take a look at all the deviation comments you've ever received. You will notice that good comments don't happen as often as they should. Although we all want good comments and to be better commenters ourselves, we have to act upon it instead of just sitting around and hoping to receiving nice comments after submitting something. Give, to receive.
Here I show you the basic concept of commenting, to make yourself a better commenter; and I don't mean being a 'good' commenter since everyone comments in his or her own way. That i
