How To Deal With ART BLOCKSOk, if you guys are still wondering, this post may help you. Its just a way I go on about it.How To Deal With ART BLOCKS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, what is an art block? Just like writer's block, an artist gets an art block. Its a state where you either; can't think of anything to draw, your drawings turn out crap, you're just not getting your drawings right, or just uninspired.
So how do I deal with it?
The very first thing you MUST do is to actually STOP DRAWING. This is your brain telling you to take a break.
If you force yourself out of an art block, it ALWAYS shows. It will look rushed or unthought of.
Second, is try and do something else NOT related to art/creativity... Go for a run, watch TV, read a book, play games, see friends etc.
Third; try and listen to music. Calm your brain and get rid of your thought process. Music is a way of simulation, sometimes you will get inspiration from it.
If you have an idea of what sort of thing you're after but just cant get it right in the end, this is where I think music helps. E

Pretending this is a coloured drawing ready for toning. Make sure you image is set to grayscale mode and not RGB or CYMK. For each gray you wish to have a different sized tone, colour it on it's own layer. Naming the dot sizes you want will help you keep track. Also when you start you image make sure the DPI or Resolution is set to either 300, 600 or 1200.
Go to Filters>> Pixelate>> Colourhalftone and something like this will appear
Channel 1,2 and 3 are RBG. Red Blue Green. The numbers you place control how Red, Blue and Green line up with each other. So in theory. If you place channel 1,2 and 3 all with the same number, for this instance 0 and leave channel 4 at the angel of 45 you should then get something that appears as such.
For me working at an angel of 100 degrees for RGB works great but that is what channel

How To Receive CritiqueThis article was worked on collaboratively by Hixateez and miontre.How To Receive Critique2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Receiving criticism is at least as difficult as writing one in the first place. Even reading what other artists have written about your work can be challenging. However, learning of the opinions of others regarding your work is one of the most important tools you can use to improve.
This blog is meant to be a guide on how to take the most out of the feedback you receive to grow as an artist.
Open your mind
No matter how you feel about your own work, try to be neutral when reading the feedback you've received. It's much too easy to subconsciously decide that your work is good just the way it is and end up denying the existence of the faults, or vice versa. This will only make reading the feedback harder for yourself. It's okay to be proud. It's okay to be disappointed. It's not okay to disapprove of other artists' opinions simply because they differ from your own feelings.

Thomas and John Knoll: the brothers behind the magic
Back in 1987, Thomas Knoll was working on his Ph.D. thesis as part of his studies on image processing at the University of Michigan. He had bought a new Apple Mac Plus to help with the thesis, but was frustrated by the fact the computer wouldn't display greyscale images on the monochrome monitor. This issue wouldn't stop him and so he decided to write his own code in order to be able to see the images in his new computer.
His brother John was coincidentally working for ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) on image processing at the time and discovered Thomas' code during a holiday visit. Clearly impressed by his brother's achievements, both began collaborating on a bigger applic
What is art?There's a lot of deviations on the front page that I check out just so I can read the comments.What is art?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of users seem to think they can define what is art and what isn't, and this never fails to infuriate me.
Have these people ever been to any art galleries? A lot of popular modern art looks like it's been drawn by 5 year olds in 5 minutes, while classical art all looks exactly the same. Maybe they should go visit some museums and start shouting "not art, herp derp" until they get thrown out.
If stuff you don't like makes the front page, it means there's an audience for that sort of stuff, in which case you should be blaming DeviantArt's user base rather than insulting the artists. Funnily enough, unoriginal Pokemon and Pony crap doesn't get as much hate as a lot of nude stuff. I wonder why. (*coughpersonalinsecuritiescough*)

Things covered in this episode:

- Setting up and using Photoshop's grid system for making tiles
- Using Photoshop's Offset filter to make tiles seamless
- Adapting a tiling texture into a tileset
- Some results of a finished basic tileset
- Thoughts and some opinions!

Copyrights, patents, piracy etcHay guys, to what extent do you think it's okay to steal/copy stuff?Copyrights, patents, piracy etc2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm really undecided about many of these issues myself, so I made myself a wee questionaire and filled it in with my opinions.
Keep in mind I'm not a lawyer, and don't really care about what the actual laws are.
Do you think it's okay to pirate software, movies, music and books?
I support piracy because I see it as free advertising and believe that most people who would have paid for it still will.
I make a point to buy stuff I really like, though I'm more likely to support poorer developers or projects that just didn't pay off.
How about pirating really old stuff (NES games, The Beatles etc)?
It really bothers me how Nintendo are still trying to sell their old games, but then again they'd lose sales on their new games if they gave away those old ones for free. So *shrugs*. I've never felt bad about not paying for old stuff though, it's more important to support those who are actually

* Even before his birth, the future leader of North Korea was triggering miracles. Official biographers say his birth in a cabin on the slopes of Baekdu Mountain in February 1942 was foretold by a swallow and heralded by a double rainbow. When he was born, a new star appeared in the night sky.
* The first time he picked up a golf club, in 1994, Kim reportedly shot a 38-under par round on North Korea's only golf course, including 11 holes-in-one. He then decided to retire from the sport for ever.
* Kim has the ability to alter the weather simply through the power of thought.
* The fledgling leader was a genius as an infant, with official North Korean biographies stating that he had learned to walk at just 3 weeks and was talking at 8 weeks.
* As a junior high school pupil in Pyongyang, he corrected and chasti
