How to Scan Art - Lineart & Everything ElseLately we've been seeing a lot more scanned artwork submitted to the group, and more often than not we've had to turn it down due to smudges, dirty work, or bad scans. I figured it was about time we get a blog post up to help our line-artists the way we did everyone else with the Photographing blog (found here: http://welovetraditionalart.deviantart.com/blog/40076629/).How to Scan Art - Lineart & Everything Else4 years ago in Personal More Like This
http://deadeyes-star.deviantart.com/art/Line-art-Clean-up-tutorial-21605526 --This is a pretty advanced tutorial from right here on deviantART. deadeyes-star’s tutorial goes into detail on how to remove forgotten or missed pencil lines and how to reconstruct lines if there was an accident. This tutorial uses the aid of Adobe Photoshop. Please note that if you were to go as far as to reconstruct lines in your piece we would no longer be able to accept it here at WeLoveTraditionalArt, because it would no longer be at least 99% traditional. But there are some good tips and tricks in

So to celebrate hitting 2,000 watchers, and my birthday, I'm going to hold two contests. One will be a writing prompt, and the other will be a visual contest
I'm still digging up ideas for the visual contest, but in the meanwhile, lets start the writing prompt
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
In the comments below, answer the following prompt:
What does art mean to you? How has your art helped you in life?
I realize this is very broad, but I think that will make for interesting answers Be sure to be as detailed as possible, and include anything and everything that comes to mind. If you want to add in what sort of art you do, that would be awesome!
Be sure to answer the prompt in at least 3-4 sentences. Of course, you may write more if you se

A couple of weeks ago my mom was detected a strange tumor in her left breast. She's going to have a biopsy in September (yeah, peruvian national health service isn't very good at all). I'm worried about her, I wish it would not be a malignant tumor. If you could pray for her I'd be very grateful. Thank you.
Prayer request from 1LoveDrew
Please pray for a friend of mine whose in desperate need for money. Him and his uncle have been struggling to stay in a house for a long time. They're having a lot of money troubles and now it's about to get worse! My friend only has TWO WEEKS to get over four hundred dollars to help his uncle pay rent. I was talking with him on the phone a few minutes ago and his uncle was cussing at him.
I want his uncle to get a grip and not cuss at my friend like that...... But I want even MORE for them to no longer have money troubles. I care so much about my friend!
He may be moving to his bro's ho

Difficulty, tragedy and God's providenceThe other day I was listening to Alistair Begg on the radio. You know how sometimes things just jump out at you, like "Hey, that's what I'm going through right now!" So right away he had my attention.Difficulty, tragedy and God's providence2 months ago in Personal More Like This
He was talking about the story of Esther in the Bible. For those of you who are not familiar with the story, Esther was a Jewish orphan who was adopted and raised by her cousin. When the king was looking for a new wife they held a massive beauty pageant and all the beautiful single ladies were forced to participate, which meant one night of sex with the King and a lifetime of living in his harem (except for the one lucky lady he chose to be Queen). Long story short, Esther is chosen to be Queen and after a chain of events it becomes obvious that God put her in that position to save thousands of people's lives (the Jews). It's a beautiful story of tragedy, irony, good conquering evil...if you haven't read it I really suggest that you do.
So, back to my

TRULY amazing grace!One amazing thing that I find more and more amazing about God each day is that though WE remember our past sins, our mistakes, our addictions and out falls...GOD DOES NOT. When we ask for his forgiveness those sins, mistakes, addictions, falls, whatever you want to call them are thrown as far as the East is from the West! God doesn't remember them anymore! How amazing is that?! So STOP blaming yourself for the past you can't change. God's already forgiven you. Forgive yourself and learn from your past instead of letting it control your future.TRULY amazing grace!3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This

My Robin Williams storySince we're all sharing... MY ROBIN WILLIAMS memory is when I was working at the Disney/MGM studios Animation (Tour/Studio) in Florida and he came down to take a personal tour of our studio. (He was there for an event/publicity/vacation, can't remember). The tour part of our studio had a film called "Back to Neverland" that he was in and it taught how animation was done. It looped over and over all day long. He got a kick out of the fact that we had to hear him yelling and screaming all day long. At one point, I was shooting at the video animation set up and he came over to see what I was doing. I explained it and he couldn't stop looking at the tour of people going through on the other side of the glass. I explained that we looked at them as "moving wallpaper" an tried not to look at them directly. Not Robin. He was on stage and he immediately found a crazy hat to put on and was running around the place. Robin Williams exuded joy and its sad to hear it wasn't always in his heartMy Robin Williams story7 months ago in Personal More Like This

I Want to Compose Theme Songs for Your OC's*This is only for my watchers!*I Want to Compose Theme Songs for Your OC's3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've thought about doing a unique kind of request, and maybe some of you will be interested in taking me up on it. I am willing to compose a short theme song for your OC if you want, and it'd be totally free. Just provide me some info on your character (the more detailed, the better; it's easier to write music when I have more preexisting info to go off of), and I can get working on it. You can even provide me with some kind of scenario or story they're in and I can compose that (like your character being involved in a chase scene, or perhaps just walking through downtown, etc). I have been composing for eleven years now, and I really love it. I've composed theme songs for my own characters and stories, and it's a ton of fun. If you want me to compose a piece for your character, I'd be happy to do it ^.^
These are some of my other works involving my characters and stories; you can check them out to get an idea of what my mu

Rock Music is not EvilIt is not the rhythm or the beat of music that makes it good or bad; it is the lyrics.Rock Music is not Evil2 months ago in Personal More Like This
God designed us to hear incredible ranges in sound and vibration. The human ear is amazing! God did not give us these detailed senses to shut out everything with a beat. He wants us to guard our hearts and our minds from sin, yes. And I am in no way saying we should compromise. However, I say again, it is not the beat or rhythm of a sing that is sinful; it is what the lyrics convey.
If I'm listening to a Thousand Foot Krutch song that has a jammin' beat, and lyrics that are praising God and telling a story of His grace, is that to be sinful?
God gave us each different personalities and likes or dislikes. If you like oldstyle Gospel hymns, that's great! If you like Christian rock, that's great! Praise is praise, and dancing for the Lord is not sinful.
Now, the secular form of rock, hip-hop, rap, and all that is sinful when taking into consideration the vulgarity of their lyrics. Most artists in our cu

Update: 3,669 points to go and 24 days to make it happen.
If we get 50 people to donate 74 points, then we will reach the goal. 74 points is less then a dollar each. Please help me reach this goal so that I can make 12 people happy this holiday season.
Update: We still have about 9,700 points to go and a little over a month to make this happen.
If anyone can help spread the word about the 12 Days of Premiums Project, I would be forever grateful! Anything at all will help the cause be better known (journals, polls, etc.) Perhaps then we can actually reach the goal

Remorse WarningRemorse does NOT equate to repentance even if it is the beginning of what it can become. Real repentance forms a will of action and executes a turning away. The warning is to CUT the umbilical cord, don't just look at it and feel sorry -- will your action. Decisively "separate" from sin at ALL cost.
