Why you should never ignore the alt attributeThe alt attribute was first introduced in HTML 2 (1995), so it’s been with us for an awfully long time. This little three-letter attribute is so important; not only does it help with Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), but it also improves the accessibility of your site.Why you should never ignore the alt attribute2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Alt attributes and accessibility
Accessibility on any site is vital, and alt attributes help by offering a readable text version of an image. If a user has to use a screen reader (for example, due to visual impairment) then they will have the alt text read to them. This means that the text you put into your alt attribute needs to make sense.

Art fundamentals.Here's a little introduction onto what these are and why I am sharing them. If you want to skip to the nitty gritty information skip down to the first line of bold text that's where all the good stuff is.Art fundamentals.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I originally wrote The basics. a couple months back as a means to show people a way to progress in their art. Since it was rushed I never took the time to go back and spruce it up with more detail so I'll be doing that in this journal.
So what are the basics? They are Art Fundamentals. And art fundamentals are the basis for creating a convincing piece that has proper depth, lighting, color theory etc. It's more or less a few rules that are good to keep in mind when creating a piece. It's good practice to study these as a beginner and revisit them throughout your entire art career. Even professional artists revisit these and know these fundamental rules very well. (Most do at least).
These rules aren't the end all be all to art and they may n
Art class 101 -Digital painting beginning exerciseSphere demoArt class 101 -Digital painting beginning exercise6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is a great way to try digital painting and to get used to two very different methods of digital painting, I will refer to them as glazing and direct painting. I find when teaching this to my students that it is about a 50/50 split as to which method the students prefer. Either method will produce beautiful results.
The reason I start with the sphere is so that students master the techniques on a simple object, but dont let that fool you. A sphere is a very complex shape when you are first starting out. If you can mater shading a sphere smoothly then you will be well on your way to mastering digital painting. I often suggest students try the sphere exercise several times until they can do it smoothly.
The goal of this exercise is to master the values to produce the illusion that the sphere is three dimensional. If you have ever taken a drawing or painting class, you may have done this exercise before with more traditional materials. There are 6-7 values needed to

A Must Read!Guys, i just want to share these journals with you (created by: Suzanne-Helmigh) whether you're a beginner, a student, or a professional artist, these are good articles, and covered a lot of good points, not only for becoming a good artist but things to be aware about as an artist. If you have a moment, have a look! I've shared one about the myth of concept art on my art blog, but i didn't want to leave out the rest of it. So instead i've decided to share these on here, since i have more watchers here than on my art blog. I hope it will help you in some way. Big thanks to Suzanne for making these!A Must Read!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

To Battle The Horde
“What do we die for, if not family, friends and freedom? We have fled from a crude reality, yet fate and war chase us, shake us like winter winds bully a wooden house. So let us fight evil with bravery, oblivion with willpower, doom to our very last breath: we have risen together, and together we fall. Where but here, at the last outpost of our kingdom, can we defeat the horde?”

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recent

Picasso seeing a seven as an upside down nose?
Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.
