1. Post-work is not a dirty word
A lot of people have this idea in their heads that editing an image in Photoshop after you render it, or combining different things you've rendered separately together is somehow deceitful and wrong, but it's not.
Post-work just makes your 3D even better! It's a lot faster to fix a small lighting bug in Photoshop than edit it painstakingly in your 3D program, and often the results are just as good!
2. Pre-made models are not cheating (and cheating is OK)
There seems to be this rift between people that create their own models, and people that use premade stock, such as Daz, Poser, etc, and this idea th

6 months later - another video is here!Hello there dear retouchers.6 months later - another video is here!6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Young, old, beginners, experts, masters and that can go on an on.
So yea, what I mean is that this video is for everyone - those who want to learn and those who allready know their field of work.
I think this second video is so much better than my first one, for several reasons:
- I learned alot since the last retouch video I did back then.
-I learned how not to let the recording interrupt my work or put me under pressure .
- In the parts where you need to pay attention and understand what im doing, Ive put little flying explainations along the video, and decreased the speed of the video to normal when its needed (at the beginning).
- The result actually cam out way better ^^.
The video is of this retouch, for those who wonder: http://nienna1990.deviantart.com/art/New-Version-Retouch-127123012

The Wright Stuff
Spaceman with no face 2 by bradwright
I've been playing Alien: Isolation for the last few weeks and it is scary as hell.
Alien Isolation Q&A with bradwright
Brad Wright, longtime deviant in the dA community, steps into the shoes (space boots) of Giger and Moebius as a concept designer for the Alien Isolation videogame. The game reportedly marks a return to the terror of the original “Alien” film in which scaring the audience to death was the goal, rather than the uncorking escalating levels of defensive firepower that defined the sequels.
Hunger Games Control Room Concept Design by `RahllRemember the control room scenes of The Hunger Games? Did you know the concept work for that control room and the 3D displays was done by our very own Reid Southen (Rahll)?Hunger Games Control Room Concept Design by `Rahll2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Reid is a senior member on deviantART who has been on the site for six years. Reid is also doing concept work for Jupiter Ascending, an upcoming 2014 sci-fi film.
He had posted a journal about his work on the Hunger Games back in February, but wasn't able to upload his work right away. He posted this deviation to his deviantART gallery yesterday:
"I had the pleasure of doing a lot of design work on the control room in the movie, from the interfaces to the holograms and such. Hybride in Montreal did a great job bringing it all to life, and it was fun seeing their tests and the f

If the severely acne-scarred face and coarse exterior brought on by his alcoholic and depressed life was the book cover of his being, then Charles was the ultimate book that could not be judged by its cover.
The exquisite collection that was this everyman artist’s art consisted of thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels—mostly all wrenchingly autobiographical, mostly all about moments of epiphany and grace in an otherwise miserable and unhappy existence. The perfect explication of the common man's deepest truth; it's not easy to be here.
Unvarnished and brutal blunt force trauma underlined with hope, beauty, longing, and love.
Therein lies the power of his poet

Partly due to the nature of the contest, but also due to the wide range of themes explored by the participants, from romance to mental batles.

An interesting theme and well thought-out reasoning took the judges near-unanimously. Inspired by Stephen Chobsky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower, introverted-ghost uses her feature to consider what it means to be an introvert, and does so in stylish, lyrical prose.

Tokyo Zephyr Update & The Next Odyssey Project
Greetings fellow Light Train Travelers. Thank you for your continued patience.
We have made our choices for the artwork for Chapters 7 and 8, the three poems and the line art that has been chosen to be included in the book. Two of the line art pieces are for the end pages of the book. Those along with another line art piece still need to be colored so we'd like to offer up a last challenge to the community. All you top flight colorists out there we'd like you to take your best shot at coloring these pieces. Then we will be ready to publish right away after that. The best pieces will be included in the book. Your last chance to be a part of this charitable cause. You have until October 1st.
I will be announcing the next Odyssey project within two weeks. We will have a very special guest joining us on our next O

WARNING: THIS VIDEO IS NSFW
ok, here's my interpretation of this vid:
4 adolescents sneak into a public pool (of some sort). This automatically tells me that whatever they are doing, they are not supposed to do. The first couple dives into the water and they are the only two kissing and touching and all that stuff. It's not until the brunette gets uncomfortable and dives into the water too that the water starts to symbolize something.
To me, the water symbolizes sexual urge, and since the couple were the first to dive into the water, and sit in the water afterwards, their lust was strong. Meanwhile, you have the conservative brunette who not only is too shy to kiss the boy but tries to escape him by going into the water. Meaning that she doesn't know what she's getting herself into, until she sees the worm thing crawling around in her bikini/panties/whatever.
THIS shows that she has sexual urge but, doesn't

The Lonely Pathby techgnotic/of depthRADIUSThe Lonely Path2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

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

Draw for yourself, not an audience!
The first and probably most important point, especially for any artist on here who in one way or the other seeks feedback and recognition from their fellow deviants. You should never forget that your art is after all YOUR art, so it should be a means to express yourself, relax yourself, be proud of yourself etc and not anyone else. Never let yourself be pressured to do anything you don't want simply because your watchers might demand it or do anything for the sole purpose of getting more attention. It might make you happy in the beginning but loosing track
