Hello everyone! It's been a while but I'd like to (informally) announce that there'll be an enrollment period/potential sometime near the end of the month or beginning of the next! Nothing set's in stone yet but here's hoping... *crosses fingers*
There may be changes to how applying for the group works so it may not be the same as previous enrollment (aka don't commit to the stuff below just yet). Details will be revealed as soon as they are finalized.
But for now feel free to work/revamp CS, drop by chat for conversation or questions!
Remember to read this journal carefully, if you are missing components at the session's end, you will be dropped from voting. [though since this is voting... it's probably best to go beyond the minimal requirements ]
If you are planning to join the next session submit your CS into the

The rules are slightly different, but still very much the same, not all has changed! Just read carefully!
There will be more than one sheet available (which I have made) each with 24 spaces.
You can only have one fantroll at the very most, no more and no exceptions.
Below this the base will be shown, you may pick a number of where you'd like to place your fantroll.
If you wish to change places with someone who has a number you'd rather, you will need to ask them first.
This is only a space reference, you're not stuck with one pose, be as creative as you want whilst trying to stay in your space.
If you want your fantroll to interact with another fantroll, please take that up with who ever you wish to interact with.

Traductora: Anima-dosAdobe Photoshop es una herramienta increíble, tanto para fotógrafos como para diseñadores gráficos.
Photoshop es una plataforma que acoge de igual forma a principiantes, usuarios intermedios y expertos. Por supuesto, los principiantes siempre necesitarán algún tiempo para acostumbrarse a la interfaz y al panel de herramientas. El concepto más importante que debe aprenderse es el de las capas; en muchos casos los principiantes encuentran difícil el aprovechamiento de las capas, especialmente si están acostumbrados a otros productos.
Aquí tenéis unos cuantos trucos para principiantes que os ayudarán a comprender las bases de Photoshop:

Spotlight Features - Volume 14A news series featuring art selected by me. There will be a wide range of themes and genres covered. In addition, there will be periodic interviews and artist spotlights.Spotlight Features - Volume 143 years ago in Art Features More Like This
If you like this article, please add it to your favorites to help spread the love for the art and artists within.
It is widely known that many famous artists, composer, and authors have had the frustration of having a work they felt was sub-par gain huge popularity while pieces they worked harder on and adore sat un-noticed. This is the same for everyday deviants. I recently ran a poll asking for deviants to share with me their thoughts on this and share their own art. Here is Part 2 of the answers--the first piece being the most faved and the second being the one they wished had more love. To see the original poll, click here.
Starting with dA CSSBack when CSS was allowed for journals for the first time there had been only a few deviants like ClaireJones, Lilyas or kuschelirmel-stock who provided free skins for everyone. Through the time more and more people enjoyed working on CSS skins and we also got the chance to skin our galleries.Starting with dA CSS3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
These days, and thanks to the great resources about journal and gallery CSS that have been created, it is possible for nearly everyone to code their own skins and/or to share them with others. Still there are many people who struggle with some basic things, which is why we want to focus on some of them here.
Where can you use CSS/HTML
On deviantART you can only use HTML and CSS on your journals, group blogs, your custom gallery folders, as well as your groups' galleries.
When you customize your profile widgets you can't add CSS or HTML like you can for journals/galleries. All you can do is using existing dA code that can be re-us

From the writer's desk
This is the very first edition of "Feature-O-Matic" news+feature series. And I am very excited about it!
As I am not a good writer, I'll try to put more images rather than text in my features. Who cares to read long journals anyway?
If you have any suggestion to make for a feature feel free to drop a note to me. (CypherVisor).

My photos as a Reference...?I receive many request for using my photos as a reference for drawings, paintings, tattoos etc.My photos as a Reference...?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Usually it's fine with me and I've enjoyed some wonderful creations based on my photography.
I thought it might be a nice idea to feature some of these artworks in my journal or blog. (I will put my photo and your work next to each other, so that people can see inspiration vs new creation)
So if you ever made something based on one of my photos, a link (comment on this journal) would be appreciated and maybe you'll find your work in some of my future blogs / journals
The rules according to reference use can be found in my signature, but since I get asked so often here they are again:
♥ Yes, You can use my photos as a reference for drawings/paintings etc.
♥ For commercial use, please send me a note
♥ My photos aren't stock, so photo manipulations of my work are not allowed.
♥ Proper credits (link back to the original) are appreciated

I’m rather irked that anyone would think that, after all this time, I would actually plagiarise anything. Parody for the sake of comedy, sure, but not flat-out copy.
Let me tell you what I know: the creative process grants you access to infinite possibilities. As such, I have never, ever felt the need to copy someone’s work. If I am aware of something that exists, I veer away from it. Partly because it would just feel wrong to steal someone else’s ideas, but mostly because….it’s boring! I get a kick out of devising new things. It’s one of the most enjoyable and satisfying endeavours you can pursue.

I promise the people that said all that: I’m just as paranoid and untrusting of the world as you guys, which is why I question everything before opening my mouth.
There is constant talk of conspiracy and media manipulation, and I believe that it does occur, but it is not as long lasting as it was prior to the dawn of the digital age. In the past, information could be controlled very easily, but now, with everyone who owns a phone being a potential source of news, the truth will surface much faster. Lies are now exposed within hours, not decades.
Within the comments of a recent deviation I made mention of how I assess information, but it probably go lost so I shall repeat it here: I don’t just look at one news source, I study three. The BBC, RT a

EVEN MOAR SKIN SWATCHES!
The best way to improve is to draw from real life. That's the best way to learn. If you don't know how to draw a certain angle of a hand or an arm, you shouldn't fudge it, you should always look it up and figure out how to draw it right. Hiding the hands behind the body is a no-no, people! The proof of bsing is easy to see: http://neofox.deviantart.com/journal/ART-knowledge-is-power-282518336
But often it's very hard to weed through the crap to find good stock to use as reference. So here I am, doing the work for you and naming some helpful resources.
I've been teaching my friend Kitteh how to draw, so I'm learning first hand just what steps to take to improve.
There's one very special thing you must do to improve. With this special thing you can go from amateur to pro. And that's PRACTICE. You can get all the references and tutorials you want, buy all the books, save all the tutorials and referenc
PE: The Impact of Color1. - WHAT IS COLOR?PE: The Impact of Color3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Color is the aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by them, as received by the human eye and processed by the human brain. It is a function of light and biology, not an exact science, no two people can see it exactly the same.
The human eye and brain together translate light into color. Light receptors within the eye transmit messages to the brain, which produces the familiar sensations of color. Newton observed that color is not inherent in objects. Rather, the surface of an object reflects some colors and absorbs all the others. We perceive only the reflected colors. Thus, red is not "in" an apple. The surface of the apple is reflecting the wavelengths we see as red and absorbing all the rest. An object appears white when it reflects all wavelengths and black when it absorbs them all.
"Colors are the deeds of light, its deeds and sufferings."
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
