Re:Rampant art 'theft' by Korean Drama siteHey guys, I've been seeing a lot of outrage over a particular website* which appears to be a type of blog about Korean drama shows, but if you type your name in the search bar, your art from here on dA is displayed. A lot of people are angry that their art is being reposted, and I'll address that in a moment, but more importantly, I must warn that you SHOULD NOT ACTUALLY VISIT THE WEBSITE, because it is supposedly loaded with viruses and malware. Plus, typing your user name in the search bar also seems to be the trigger that CAUSES your art to be reposted. More info on that in this journal here: http://darlingmionette.deviantart.com/journal/Art-Theft-UPDATE-343890145Re:Rampant art 'theft' by Korean Drama site3 years ago in Personal More Like This
*I won't type the URL, because it is supposedly rife with viruses, and I don't want any of my watchers' computers harmed.

Best way to record yourself drawing digitallyUpdate: Added section about CONVERTING video sessions below.Best way to record yourself drawing digitally4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Quick bit of help here, because I'm not sure if everyone knows the best way to handle this if you want to record your progress while drawing in Photoshop, Manga Studio, Painter, whatever.
IF YOU ARE USING WINDOWSYou may have tried some of the screen recorders out there like CamStudio, FRAPS, or some free ones out there. You may have noticed, or had become frustrated with, the fact that many of these programs cause a significantly huge hit on your system's performance. When you try drawing in Photoshop, your tablet response comes to a screeching halt. Then you find a program that records without impacting your drawing performance -- only to find that the resulting video recorded at about 1 frame every 3 seconds. Then you tried FRAPS, then found out that 4 minutes of video resulted in a 3.2GB file. All of these are less than ideal.
A while back, I searched all over the net for a program that encoded video from my screen

Master Techniques for realism using postworkMaster Techniques for realism using postwork http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/master-techniques-for-realism-using-postwork/46535Master Techniques for realism using postwork9 years ago in Personal More Like This
Master Techniques for realism using postwork http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/master-techniques-for-realism-using-postwork/46535 teaches you how to transform a simple rendered image into a photo realistic one.
To make an image look realistic with some postwork is not that complicated and if you read my tutorial you can see/learn how I do that.
I'm not saying it's the only possible way to do it, it's just the way I paint. Of course there are many ways to make a photo realistic image and every artist over time will develop its own style, techniques and trick but, what you can learn reading this tutorial is still useful for both beginner and advanced artists.
The tutorial is 35 pages long and has a lot of new, easy to learn and useful techniques and many large examples in images. Most of them are at their original size, cropped from a 3000 x 25

How to: AnatomyHuman anatomy is, for sure, one of the hardest things to draw. But at the same time it's one of the most interesting things to draw, because... hey... we love making characters, and it's nice if they at least look a bit like a human being. I'm still far from perfect at drawing the human body, yet I've accumulated some very useful tips, tricks and websites.How to: Anatomy6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Drawing from life
Drawing from life is awesome!
Look for life drawing classes in your environment, or if they're not available; ask your friends to pose for you. Go have a drink in the city when the weather is nice, and sketch people passing by. There's nowhere you learn more about human anatomy than by observing and sketching real people. There's only one downside to this; dynamic poses are tricky, as it's hard for any model to hold a difficult pose for a long time.
And no... drawing (nearly) naked people in a drawing class isn't awkward. I
