An interview with VianaArts!Hello Europe!An interview with VianaArts!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We are pleased to announce the start of an all-new europeans project - member interviews! In this interview series, we will interview prominent members of our group. To kick this project off, we met up with Samuel Silva, better known on deviantART as VianaArts, for an in-depth interview. To those unfamiliar with Sam's art - he's currently taking the Internet by storm with his drawing Redhead Girl, which alone has received over 1 million views over the past couple weeks.
Europeans: Hi there Sam! Thanks for taking time out of your day to do an interview with us today.
Your recent drawing Redhead Girl has become really popular on the I
September Vector DDs and Thank YouWhat is Vector Art?September Vector DDs and Thank You1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In digital art there are two layer formats: raster and vector. Raster formats are based in pixels and vector is based in paths and points.
When you resize a raster image, you are expanding the pixels. Your program has to try to estimate what the colours would be for the additional pixels created. Due to this, the image loses it's clarity and creates a pixel effect.
When you resize a vector image, you are increasing the distance between the points. Due to this, the image doesn't lose it's clarity and doesn't pixellate.
The key element of vector is that it's infinitely scalable without any quality loss and it's why we love it!
What is a Daily Deviation?
A Daily Deviation is a site wide feature. These are selected from our galleries by Community Volunteers and from suggestions from ANYONE who is a member of deviantART!
Today marks the end of my year as your Vector Community Volunteer. It's been a wonderful

How To: Critiquing ArtworkLong time no journal, a mixture of work and personal life getting in the way... damn those aspects of our lives!How To: Critiquing Artwork2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So I've been meaning to write a journal for such a long time on commenting and critiquing. Every so often I ask if anyone wants a critique for their vector or vexel work and every so often I get comments from people wanting to know how to do it. Let me start by saying this just how I critique and comment, not the be all and end all... also, my vocabulary isn't as varied as many... for a tutorial and article writer it sounds bad, but I did fail English first time around (thank gawd for resits I tell you!). However this being said, don't let your lack of language skills hold you back from giving constructive criticism. So let's get onto some tips and hints. If you've got any to offer, please feel free to contribute and I shall add them to the list and credit you
What exactly is a Critique?
Stripping to the bare bones, a critique is giving your opinion in a c
About IsbjorgAbout Isbjorg3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First: sorry for my English.
Second: Yes, I stand as a model for my original character. But still we are different persons. You know, it's like: Indiana Jones and Han Solo have Harrison Ford's appearance. But it doesn't mean Harrison Ford is Indiana Jones or Han Solo
FULL NAME: Isbjörg.
MEANING: Like I said in my story: Isbjörg's mother, Esmerelle, met her real father somewhere in the Icewind Dale. Probably, in memory of that bitterly cold place which meant so much to her she gave such "glacial" name to her daughter. "Is" - Ice, "Björg" - defense. Her foster father and others called her "Björg". And only Bishop calls her "Is" because it makes her angry
NICKNAME: Actually, no. But sometimes Bish calls her "Milady" .
ACTUAL AGE: 27-29 years old(means about 22 for half-elves).
Christians - Public StatementWho are we and what do we stand for?Christians - Public Statement2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Due to an evident attack to the integrity of our group and its members, it has become necessary to address false allegations made against our group. Contrary to the allegations, christians as a group and/or any of its leaders, do not hate LGBT, and certainly we do not make them a “target of harassment, or personal insults” as some individuals have chosen to do with our group and against established etiquette policy at dA. As we are taught, our group of 2,292 Members and 5,196 Watchers has remained relatively silent in midst of the constant attack.
We can assure you that you have never read, and will never read, any responsible party at our group say that God doesn’t love ALL men and women, thus, making sexual orientation irrelevant as it relates to God’s love. What God does not love is SIN. As a Christian group abiding by the Biblical tenants we stand firm to God’s standard, n

Web Sharpener Update V0.8Hello,Web Sharpener Update V0.82 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've updated my Web Sharpener Script for Photoshop to version 0.8. You will need Photoshop CS2 or higher to run it.
New features ...
*) Improved downscaling algorithm that uses more than 2 steps now and considers the image size. If you liked the previous algorith, you can select this option as well.
*) Better edge masking to prevent halos more efficiently.
*) Some bug fixes.
Here's the link ... http://www.andreasresch.at/upload/WebSharpener.zip
The ZIP-files includes both a German and an English version of the script plus the documentation in PDF-format.
As there are quite a few medium format and large format shooters here - the new script works significantly better with larger images now.
By request I also created a version that runs without dialog so that you can use it to run in a batch. Here's what you have to do ...
*) The script is included in the "English" folder of the ZIP-file.</b>
*) Open the script in a text editor.

by Vittorio Arrigoni
"Take a piece of land 40 kilometers long and five wide.
Call Gaza. Then fill it with one million and four hundred thousand inhabitants.
After that surround them with the sea to the west, Mubarak's Egypt to the south,
Israel in the north and east and call the Land of the terrorists.
Then declare it war and invade with 232 tanks, 687 armored
43 stations to launch fighter jets, 105 elicopters armed
221 artillery land units, 346 mortars, three spy satellites,
64 informants, 12 spies infiltrated and 8000 troops.
And now all this calls ISRAEL DEFENDING ITSELF.
Now stop for a moment and declared THAT AVOID HITTING THE CIVILIAN POPULATION
and defined yourself like THE ONLY DEMOCRACY IN ACTION
It will be a miracle, from whatever point of view, to avoid hitting those civilians
or is simply a lie since NO ONE could avo
