What is Vector Art?What Is Vector Art?What is Vector Art?9 years ago in deviantART Blog More Like This
Vector Art is a technique, not a style.
Perhaps a better term would be "vector-based art," meaning art created in a vector-based program. Vector art consists of creating paths and points in a program such as Illustrator or Freehand. The program keeps track of the relationships between these points and paths. Vectors are any scaleable objects that keeps their proportions and quality when sized up or down. They're defined as solid objects, and can be moved around in full, or grouped together with other objects. Vectors can be defined by mathematical and numeric data. So vector art is anything that's created in Illustrator, Freehand, Corel Draw, Flash or other "vector" illustration programs.
(Vector programs: Illustrator, Freehand, Corel Draw, Flash, etc.)
The other side of the coin is raster art. Raster art consists of pixel information, where every pixel is assigned a RGB or CMYK value. This can create smoother and more detailed images for photo

Using other people's work to learn...An Important NoteUsing other people's work to learn...4 months ago in Personal More Like This
During my years as a pixel-artist and iconist on the Internet, both here and in other websites, if there's one thing I've constantly encountered and battled against, is people copying my work in several levels.
The first level, is when they simply take my work and upload it somewhere else, claiming it as theirs.
The second level, is when they take my work, edit it slightly and then upload it somewhere else, once more claiming as theirs.
The third level, is when they take my work, and re-make one "of their own", copying my palette, my style and everything else, then upload it as theirs because they think it's fair-game because they "redid it!".
All three fairly common, all three fairly easy to deal with and quite honestly don't bother me as much anymore, especially the first.
However, there's one last level, which annoys me the most, and that is...
When people try to "learn" from my work by copying it, studying it,
Character Art Requests!27 June 2012: Requests closed for now. Sorry, booked solid!Character Art Requests!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I need some practice, and drawing the same characters and scenes over and over may be stalling me a bit. I recently opened up a "request a drawing of your character" thread that received a lot more replies than I thought would come my way.
So this little journal entry will serve two purposes. I'll link all the completed drawings here. I'll probably need to ask for the thread to be locked before I get too many requests... so this post will take the thread's place.
And I'll still take requests if you who are reading this post would like one. However, as of right now I have about 20.
They're not first-come first-serve, but I'll try to prioritize based on who asked first. I'll also give priority to anyone who has been supportive of my endeavors (watching, critiquing, etc) since one good turn deserves another . I may have to skip over ones I feel are too difficult until I've practiced a bit more.

Así que, nada, otro sorteíllo
Igual que el anterior: regalaré un chibi mío, y el estilo lo decidirá el ganador.
Voy a hacer el sorteo entre todos los 101 seguidores que tengo ahora (iba a hacerlo a los 100, pero como ha subido antes de que pudiera hacer el journal, pues eso ).
Y quien quiera una participación más, tiene que añadir a favoritos este journal.

My stance on Gender Equality and Sexual PreferenceWell, it's been on my mind of late either due to my writing topics (for various things), or the fact that several people in my life have criticized me for having a certain belief on things...but, well...I figure I should spell things out nice and easy here in regards to my beliefs:My stance on Gender Equality and Sexual Preference1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, first of all, I'm not one of those guys who believes a woman should stay in the kitchen and stay at home and not work. Right off the bat, I believe that's antiquated nonsense that is AT BEST a joke, and at WORST a 60-year-old complaint. I can understand why older folks believe women are better suited to stay at home for several reasons, the least of which being motherhood, but there are other factors that the biased groups tend to say women should stay home for, namely:
1. Taking over men's jobs. In eras gone by, this WAS a problem, mainly because women were cheaper to hire than men, either due to their lack of financial responsibility (i.e. being the bread-winner of the family). Thus a woma

I probably should link the title or something. Ah well.
Anyway, so the goal is simple, you need to draw or write a situation involving the characters linked in a moment, and to capture their personality and looks (if you're drawing) as well as you can. I'll be judging on which ones showed how they are and act to the situation the most. An example of that would be > Rosa gets groped by a random guy and gets extremely upset. Again, your goal is to put one or a few of my characters in a situation and to capture their personality.
Of course, there will be some rules.
For both types of entries:
Do NOT make your entry 18+. They need to not contain any adult material. They can be a bit risque if it is requir

I'm just going to leave my skype here for simplicity purposes. If you have a skype, feel free to add it.
I don't really use the mic or videocall options, but it makes group text chat infinitely easier than using fucking notes. xD
My skype is the same as my name, except a period instead of a space: chris.holkham
If you ever want to role-play with me, or chat with me, or whatever,
1. You include your DeviantArt username in the invitation so I know who you are, or at least tell me your skype name in advance so I know.
2. I don't really use the camera or the voice options unless asked to, I prefer text because I'm shy. You can do whatever though. ^^

After some time I will pick a winner by using random.org.
The winner gets to request a drawing of any character, be it their own, someone else's or even of a fandom.
The only rules:
1. It has to be clean art, no porn. Suggestive/cheesecake is fine!
2. You have to be a watcher of mine. If you want to watch me just to get into the contest and unwatch after you win/don't win- that is up to you and I can't really stop you.
3. The drawing will be of only 1 character in a simple background. Complexity is fine. Keep in mind my drawing/art style when requesting. If it seems like something that I don't do- you probably would be better off requesting something else.
Now- yes I do plan to get a lot of my commissions done before Christmas- this is a major goal of mine.
But I'd really like to thank everyone who watches me a

I know most of you know what a cameo appearance are especially in tv shows.
A cameo role or cameo appearance (often shortened to just cameo) is a brief appearance of a known person in a work of the performing arts, such as plays, films, video games and television.
An example is in Ben 10:
Look here, doesn't those three little
bratskids look like Konohamaru, Moegi and Udon. (Naruto)
Well... I'm going to do something similar to that except with my future artworks. You can have your OC (Has to be Naruto) in my future artworks but as like a background character. For that you have to be chosen in this raffle.
The rules are:
o You have to watch me. How else would you know if your OC got chosen ;D
o You can choose only one character.
o I draw them how they are portrayed in your artworks or description you give.

How about the sheer lack of size for a start. In the past people with dslr's like Nikon d300s, Canon 7D's etc couldn't get their camera to fit inside it, it was simply to small of a bag. Heck, I even know a few folks who had d70s and d80s who couldn't fit their camera inside. While the ad says "now larger", it doesn't exactly say HOW MUCH larger and that means that you are taking a risk. Now let's really get down to the reality of the situation.

Basically, you just fill out the normal application and submit it, and while we're working on that you can work on this -- and when finished, submit it as a separate deviation, and just link to it on your application's description.

Improve Your Writing Contest!I've gotten several messages asking to extend the deadline. I will extend it until December 15th, 2011. Hope this helps!Improve Your Writing Contest!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey everyone! I've decided to run a short term writing contest. I really don't feel like writing gets enough attention here on DeviantArt, and it is DEFINITELY an art!
I am going to post a series of prose prompts. Prose is essentially a short story. To enter the contest, you will submit a prose response for each prompt. I will post a new prompt everyday for 10 days. At the end of the ten days, I will judge the contest based on all of a person's entries. I know it sounds a little complicated, but bear with me. Here are the rules:
1) I will post a new prose prompt everyday for ten days. All of the prose prompts will be due midnight November 30th, 2011. You may submit all of them at the end of the contest, but I recommend that you submit them daily or you might get swamped.
2) You may join the contest at any point before the deadline, which will be November 30th,
