I'm back with writing my journal tutorials for Photoshop. I didn't post any new journal tutorial in a while Now I also edited journal skin, so it'll be more appropriate for "Photoshop tips" Anyway, my previous tutorial you can check here. I'll describe some Photoshop basics for everyone who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: Making selections, Customizing brush, Bevel & Emboss, Stroke.

I made a poll to enquire about whether you would like to have the deadline extended for the contest... and so far (at the time of this update) I have 4 people saying that they would like a deadline extension and 5 people saying that they would find it unfair if there was a deadline extension (I was aware that this opinion might be issued, hence why it was included in the poll).
Sooo... ermm... I'm not really sure what to do here with an alllllllmost (almost) 50/50 opinion, as I really don't want to be unfair to anyone. Obviously there was one more person voting negatively than positively, but the numbers are so small that I don't want to let down any individual voters. I was going to extend the deadline an extra week, but I don't want to be unfair to the people who voted negatively, so I'm going to compromise (... sort of) and extend the deadline by only 48 hours, and also suggest that you submit even unfinished work so that I can see it. :

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!

Acts of Creation Part 1CREATED BY…?Acts of Creation Part 13 years ago in Personal More Like This
Two words that define so much in a persons head, not so much about who did/does what but, about who created the whole character, the concept, the supporting cast…
Picture this (in an awesome Rod Sterling voice); a talented artist sits alone in his studio wanting to be appreciated for his ideas as well as his artistic talents. On his drawing board sits a rendering of a superhero. This character is dark and brooding, like any good piece of art it speaks volumes. We can see he is angry, that he prefers to serve his form of justice at night and violently. The poor state of his costume shows that he has either had a bad night or that he lacks the wealth of a Bruce Wayne. Along the bottom is written "THE MIDNIGHT FREAK".
Ding – dong. The doorbell rings and his friend turns up with whom he is going to see a movie, this friend is a writer.
So the writer sees the drawing and thinks it is amazing, what's more it inspires him to come up with ideas that the artist didn't. Now the arti

Maybe some answers would seem false or inflated, it might seem sincere, many people may not understand, or might resonate with what I feel ...
Why love Romania, Selina?
I love Romania, because here I was born and here I have roots that nobody could relocate, because here I fell in love for the first time, because here I buried my parents, because here I first smelled the roses, because here I saw first painting and because here, I understand every color of every syllable uttered.
I love Romania, with her good and bad Romanians,with her poverty and wealth, with her struggles and injustices, with victories and defeats, with written words and silence, I love Romania because here I'm home and in my home, all the walls love me.
Happy Anniversary Romania! :icondarkmarek:
PE: Power of PerspectivePE: Power of PerspectivePE: Power of Perspective1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Perspective is the angle and depth of a piece of art. Changing perspective allows for drastic differences. There is more than one kind of perspective, and all of them allow for more dynamic pieces of art if used correctly.
There are three common choices, and these are explained later.
Usually perspective deals with how close things appear, and correctly rendering perspective adds depth to an image and increases the impact of the composition.
One Point Perspective
One point perspective is where there is one vanishing point in a piece. . A vanishing point is essentially the in-the-distance-until-you-can'
t-see anymore point.
You see this perspective often, images of roads, or landscape often have one point perspective.
Examples of one point perspective:

OMG, what is this?
It's a fractal, baby!
What is a fractal?
It's a really difficult question to answer, but I'll try to keep it as simple as I can. So, fellow fractalists, if you're reading, I won't be that precise in answering.
Wikipedia says: "A fractal is a mathematical set that has a fractal dimension that usually exceeds its topological dimension and may fall between the integers."
Wait, what? I didn't even understand myself.
Ok, a fractal is basically the repetition of a same "image". This image can be repeated with its original dimension or fractal dimension (it can be resized).
For example, let's pick the Romanesco Broccoli (the image is from Wikipedia):
As you can see, it's a repetition of the same "peaks" over and over, each of them with diffe

Can I also say something unrelated.. I think dA should really upgrade this journal thing with an easy image uploader function? so I don't have to upload in another database and imgsrc every photo in here. After all, having pictures in a journal is one of the few attractions and entitlement to a paid subscriber besides a customize journal, right?

FAQ! Finally!Hello everybody!FAQ! Finally!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been getting an increase in notes and messages lately asking all kinds of things. Problem is, I'm far from having the time to answer all these questions individually (even if I did have it it would probably make more sense to spend it drawing), but I don't want to leave them unanswered either since I appreciate everyone's feedback a lot. So I decided to make a kind of FAQ, since I'm mostly being asked the same things over and over.
I'll try to group these semantically so reading though them makes a bit of sense.
Did you ever do any tutorials?

There's a lot of explaining in there, so please before you ask anything technique or learning related, read it thoroughly first.

I'm Not A Social Butterfly......well, anymore. But I'm not an introvert, either.I'm Not A Social Butterfly...7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Most of my IRL close acquaintances and friends always ask me "Rob, why you work so much? Why don't you go out with us like you used to?" "Man, we used to hoop all the time dude, when are we getting back to the court?"
My response usually consists of "I... just got things to do." And I do. I'm practically at the computer almost 18 hours a day, hacking away at the game. When my wife gets home, I spend a couple hours with her until she goes to sleep, and then I finish up whatever work until I hit the sack.
Then they'd be the ones to go on how much they hate their job. Actually, its pretty funny: One of my closest dudes has an artistic background in music. He could be killing it in the indie scene even; he's a very talented dude. But man, he's dealing with chick-o-drama, always spending his free time (now on GTA5) playing games or going to the bar, and then have the audacity to go on how much he hate his jo

Don't go to art school
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.

First of all, we need stones - the more regular they are, the better.

We also need sharp pincers, round pincers and a wire, 0.6mm or thicker, 40cm at least. Copper wire i
