You are worth it!Just one of the many messages I got here on DeviantArt;You are worth it!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I don't know if it's okay to send a note, I don't want to bother you. You faved my artwork, and I just wanted to thank you for that. I just saw your profile and I wanted to say: you are an AMAZING artist and great with story lines. Amazing talent. It's an honor to meet someone like you. I do a lot of art myself, but I'm nowhere as good as you are. I honestly don't know why a great artist like you faved my work. I don't think I'm worth the attention, since you're a way better artist than I'll ever be. But thanks a lot.
Honestly... the amount of comments I get like this nowadays is high.
And although I have to admit the whole I-like-your-art-thing is kinda flattering, it somehow still makes me sad.
Why all this buzz over a simple fave? It's DeviantArt! A digital collection of art. We are supposed to fave artwork that we like!
Why all this insecurity? Since when does the level of art
WHAT IS AUTISM? (PLEASE READ)As you must have already known by now, when you see my signature, that I have autism. But with people not asking me about what it is, I've decided to make this to make ammends.WHAT IS AUTISM? (PLEASE READ)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who don't know what autism is, it is a neurological disorder that affects social development and speech. While this may sound terrible to you, this is not as bad as you may think. And I know, because I have had my troubles with it when I was younger. Still, to this day, I kind of have that problem with my speech, especially.
Another distinct feature of autistic people is their tendency to behave awkwardly, such as making random body movements and repeating something that was said to them. With me, I could move my hands in such a way that not very many other neuraltypical people would do. These behaviors are similar to Tourette's Syndrome, but aren't actually signs of it. Autistic people also have the tendency to not cope with change--in other words, they want things in a routine basis, or they w

Journal updated, with my scanning technique=======Journal updated, with my scanning technique2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've got so many questions about how I scan my traditional artworks, I also wanted to try out my deviantart Sta.sh storage, so I've uploaded some scanned files and put them on this journal.
Here's my method.
: I use HP G4050 scanner
: My current working OS is Windows 7, but I always use Windows XP to scan my artworks
: I always put 2 bluish-tint transparent films under my pictures when scanning. [You can buy transparent film at stationery stores.]
: Then adjust colors with photoshop, I always set contrast to [+12] or [+14] and I always use legacy contrast.
: I also adjust sharpness sometimes.
[filter>sharpen>unsharp mask> and adjust radius to : +1 pixels.
: Remove all eraser dust using clone stamp tool and it's done.
Someone might wonder why don't I use windows 7 for scanning, why do I have to put 2 transparent films underneath, and why they have to be bluish tint, I have uploaded some sample images for you to compare.
Digitigrade Leg and Stilt ConstructionIf your character has animal-like legs, such as a fawn, a werewolf, or a gargoyle, a draenai, tauren, etc, you have probably run across the problem of leg construction. These character types require digitigrade legs to look authentic and the whole point is to look authentic, right?Digitigrade Leg and Stilt Construction5 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those who are confused about what digitigrade means, here is the definition (Wiki):
A digitigrade is an animal that stands or walks on its digits, or toes. Digitigrades include walking birds (what many assume to be bird knees are actually ankles), cats, dogs, and most other mammals, but not humans, bears, and a few others (cf. plantigrade, unguligrade). They are generally quicker and move more quietly than other mammals.
So let's take a peek at how we can achieve the look without breaking our shins, hanging from the rafters in a desperate effort to stretch our Achilles tendon (No, really... DO NOT DO THAT), or undergoing some sort of mutagenic gene therapy.
Some methods are more comfortable and user frie
New llama levels and Badge Pages! Fellow llama herders!New llama levels and Badge Pages!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may have noticed that today is a momentous day in the field of llamas. Due to their unexpected popularity, we have decided to tweak the llama levels a bit, in order to maximize fun and fairness for every deviant around -- from llama aficionados to those who simply dabble in llamas from time to time.
What llamas? Glad you asked!
Behold, the new breakdown of llamas! (If you dislike spoilers and wish to achieve the levels by pure surprise, then keep scrolling.)
= 1 (Llama)
= 10 (Super Llama)
= 50 (Albino Llama)
= 100 (Super Albino Llama)
= 500 (Ninja Llama)
= 1,000 (Fancy Llama)
= 2,500 (King Llama)
= 5,000 (Spartan Llama)
= 7,500 (Wizard Llama)
= 10,000 (Golden Llama)
There you have it! So many awesome reasons to stay connected to the community and to search out new and undiscovered deviants. Share the wealth, my friends. Share it.
DON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah BradleyDon't go to art schoolDON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah Bradley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.
I'VE HAD IT.
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way

“Sometimes we lay aside our own troubles when we wipe away another's tears.”

his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

How to draw during 365 daysHow to draw during 365 days4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?
