Here is a little bit about finding the right size of characters in the perspective of the scene.
For example, one of the thousands of my unfinished work "Resurrection." The image below will guide you.
1. Select the background and characters of the scene
2. Hold the line of the horizon and set the first character, which is built according to the scene. Join in the triangle height of human growth and the point of intersection with the horizon (the green triangle). Now, according to this triangle, we can easily determine the size of the receding figure.
3-4. If the position of the new character should not be this triangle, then the point of the new position of A is enough perpendicular to AB to the triangle and find BC s

Today's featured artist is neverdying
Daniel Berard is a graphic designer from Quebec, Canada. He has been doing graphic design professionally for the last twelve years. He is specialized in corporate identity design (logo, brochure, web) and photo manipulation.
When did you first discover your passion for art?
It goes back to high school. I had to create this fake magazine for a class and this is pretty much where it all started. I loved the experience and decided to take a graphic design course the next year.
Fantastic photomanips #11Below, you can see a selection of wonderful artworks I have recently seen - some of them were created by my favourite artists, and some are works that I simply stumbled upon. Why those? In my opinion, they are striking - some due to the amazing colours, others due to fantastic composition or technical brilliance, but all of them have this incredible spark that made me stop and look more closely. In addition, most of them are definitely not as appreciated as they should be, so if you like them, leave the authors a comment or a fav.

The Wow Effect: What Makes Great, Great?For the latter half of March through the beginning of April, the theme at we-HEART-photomanip will be, The Wow Effect. Today, I am going to present some information about what makes a great photomanipulation great.The Wow Effect: What Makes Great, Great?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A great photomanipulation has great composition.
Composition is the way your eye travels over the photomanipulation and where your eye rests. What is the focal point of the image? Is that an appropriate focal point? (For example, are your eyes drawn to the model's eyes/face, or her arm? ) Composition is how we capture and keep the attention of our viewers. Popular composition styles include the Rule of Thirds and the Golden Ratio, although there are certainly others.

5 Tips From Me to YouTo be taken for what it is - ramblings of a weirdo. A weirdo with a heart of gold, and good intentions.5 Tips From Me to You1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Look for Inspiration Outside of Your Medium
One of the biggest mistakes I see is people only gathering inspiration from art made out of their own medium. Admiring your fellow -insert artist type here- is fine of course, but make sure to mix in a slew of other sources as well. This will help keep your art unique and fresh and help you steer away from trends.
My personal inspiration tends to come from digital and oil painters, fashion photographers, movies and my favorite: people watching.
Don't Blame Your Equipment, or Lack there Of
This has to be one of my biggest pet peeves. The artist that blames their equipment or the fact they don't have what they "need". "If I just had -this- then I would be sooo much better! ...But I don't so oh well". I can not stand this line of thought. It's pure poison. Rotting the m

Challenging Yourself to Become a Better ArtistLike others here, I get asked a lot of questions about my art, my process, techniques, and my inspiration. One of the questions I get asked that makes me both smile and laugh is, "How did you get so good?" Half the time it's a rhetorical question, and the other half is people genuinely wanting to know how to get better at art.Challenging Yourself to Become a Better Artist6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The answer is deceptively simple: I challenge myself and maintain a positive attitude.
RISE TO THE CHALLENGE
Now you might say, "Well, everything I do is a challenge, I'm not that good yet." But that's not what I mean. Of course getting better at art is challenging, and even when you're what others might consider a master, art never stops being a challenge.
But what I'm talking about is specifically setting goals for yourself and taking on projects that you KNOW are going to make you struggle. The projects that you KNOW are going to make you want to give up and do something else.
I find that a lot of people sort of stick to a specific niche and never reall

What Ruins A Painting?
(or makes it better)
We all had those kind of paintings at some point, looking at which we felt something is not right – something is not right – But could not find it. What went wrong? We have put every finest details and all our patience in it. Then?
Art has its own science. Science that makes a successful art – something that comes out exactly you thought of and leaves the same impact on your audience. That science is known as composition in art and music. Where your eyes will go at first, how you will draw attention, how much attention you will draw – these are not luck, but pure science. A well thought designed piece is always successful. So mastering the brushes are not enough, we have to learn about the basics that make a successful art!
Hence, today, we will talk about the 'bad' elements which are solemnly responsible for rui

10 years of deviantARTSo as I sit at my desk reminiscing there's always one place that I must stay true to and remember. When I created this account, back in the days when I used to go by my actual name -NickCreevy..I'm talking way way back when I used to be a regular banned user (I'm sure you can remember these times Moonbeam13 ) this community was a excuse to download beautiful wallpapers by javierocasio & celsojunior and try to mimic a Mac OS X menu bar on my old school hi-grade Windows XP that my Mum brought off QVC (I really did believe it was the shit). But then this place turned into a daily home for myself, it sparked some creativity inside of me I never believed I could ever come across. This is going back to the days when I met Enkera-2005 and he taught me how to create glowing circles in Photoshop (just so I could steal that celsojunior signature style) over MSN messenger, back when I was on the other side of the globe. We used to have incredible debates in those10 years of deviantART3 months ago in Personal More Like This
