Shepard Fairey - - CRIMINAL.Shepard Fairey, the artist responsible for the Obama "Hope" poster that contributed so importantly to Obama achieving the presidency of the United States four years ago, plead guilty today to criminal contempt in charges that came from his manipulating evidence in a lawsuit brought against him for using an AP photograph as a reference for the "Hope" poster. Shepard Fairey was sentenced to two years of probation and 300 hours of community service.Shepard Fairey - - CRIMINAL.1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Shepard Fairey has been a special friend to deviantART. He contributed another one of his famous posters for marriage equality to a contest we held, "Love Unites," that encouraged deviants to remix his poster. He very generously gave us a layered file with all of the poster's elements. The results were spectacul

A Note about Copyright and CreditingHello lovely people.A Note about Copyright and Crediting2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I'd just like to give you guys a reminder about three points of copyright that come up quite often and I think people are confused about. I don't want to see any of you get in trouble, so here's some things that you should remember:
Characters Ripped out of Games and Screenshots
Ripping models out of games and using them in your art is absolutely 100% not allowed on DA. This is considered a copyright infringement. Passing these around to others just makes things even worse. Please make sure you don't do this and don't use resources that have been taken from games.
I can't stress this enough, make sure any stock models you use are from people who either made them or have express permission to supply them to you.
Screenshots are a bit more of a grey area. Some game companies let you post them some don't. If you MUST post screenshots, please make sure they are correctly labeled and credited, and put in the Fan Art gallery.
Game screenshots don't belon
Art class 101 -Digital painting beginning exerciseSphere demoArt class 101 -Digital painting beginning exercise4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is a great way to try digital painting and to get used to two very different methods of digital painting, I will refer to them as glazing and direct painting. I find when teaching this to my students that it is about a 50/50 split as to which method the students prefer. Either method will produce beautiful results.
The reason I start with the sphere is so that students master the techniques on a simple object, but dont let that fool you. A sphere is a very complex shape when you are first starting out. If you can mater shading a sphere smoothly then you will be well on your way to mastering digital painting. I often suggest students try the sphere exercise several times until they can do it smoothly.
The goal of this exercise is to master the values to produce the illusion that the sphere is three dimensional. If you have ever taken a drawing or painting class, you may have done this exercise before with more traditional materials. There are 6-7 values needed to

Miami-Dade County has issued an order to vacate to Occupy Miami, warning protestors to leave their long-time "Peace City" encampment on the West Lawn of the Stephen P. Clark Government Center by sunset Tuesday or face arrest for trespassing.
Occupy Miami members burned the eviction notice, according to their Facebook page:
Hey, insomniacs. Won't be much sleep at the Occupy Miami campsite tonight. There's been some restructuring of the camp. There will be more in the morning. Quite a few people have cleared out but others have come. I'm sure there will be more of this later on as well. Word is the police are coming to remove us at 5 p.m. any way they deem fit. All leftover personal property will be declared abandoned and confiscated and destroyed. We burned the eviction notice. Time things got serious over here. We've decided to take a stand and not let them take our occupied te

Through stealthy investigation and well-trained ears, we have discovered that a handful of deviants are the winners of 'South Park's Year of the Fan' contest. Out of thousands of works submitted worldwide, only 15 fan-made artworks were selected by the pop surrealist artist, Ron English, to be on display at San Diego Comic-Con.

I've been talking alot about the comic i want to do, well i haven't had much time fro drawing, or anything due to school stuff, but i'm having really fun though.
Anyway, i've been planning on making a character that's neither good nor evil, you know a neutral one that does whatever he/she wants because he/she can, sometimes a scumbag sometimes a hero, it depends on what that person feels like.
Now some details:
:You're free to draw the character as either a male or female, i haven't decided on the gender yet anyway.
:Try to not use bases.
:IF you want to draw something more mature/sexy/ecchi send the link in a note, some people like to draw certain things and i don't mind as long as you have fun! but i want to try to keep things clean
:Chibis are allowed but will most likely decrease

The Bang Bang ClubYou have to see this movie about war photographers called “The Bang Bang Club.” For photographers, it’s a near perfect experience.The Bang Bang Club2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The way photographers are shown in films follows the way in which any profession tends to be depicted in fiction - - usually as a caricature in a single dimension useful to the dramatic license taken out by the filmmaker.
The classic 1960 Federico Fellini movie “La Dolce Vita” introduced the paparazzi to the world stage and forever established a benchmark to the public’s perception of this type of news photographer as essentially a point and shoot automoton in the service of publicists. That view stuck no matter how brilliantly Weegee worked in this idiom with his sardonic exposures.
Here are Fellini’s paparazzi:
