Types of Artist blues, what helped, what didn'tThere are several artist blues I know of, since I have experienced practically all of them during the past few months since 2011. I will write about how I got them, how I overcome them. What helped, what didn't.Types of Artist blues, what helped, what didn't9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some of these blues are professional freelance blues, happens to those who are making their own series/productions and when there's money and risk involved.
Some of these blues are shared by all artists.
Before the production even starts, the fear of it failing caused me to think about failing instead of success. It makes me hesitate about actually working on the project before I even produce anything.
What helped- Refocus on what I am making the project for, what's the true message I try to convey with the project, make that shine, and try to choose a cheap launch platform that makes it cost-effective.
What didn't help- trying to level up on art skill. It helped with my overall art as work for hire, it didn't help with

Feel free to use these settings on different brush shapes as well for different effects (such as watercolor, oil, etc. Try all those different textured brush shapes provided by Photoshop and di
Know your Basics - TexturesThere are a lot of tutorials out there on how to create / photograph texture as well as how to use them on a technical level, but the question of why and when to use textures is rarely touched. This article wants to fill that gap and therefore looks at texures from a slightly different perspective.Know your Basics - Textures8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures in Manips as you know them
For a photomanipulator, the first thing that comes to mind when hearing the word "texture" are images that can be used in soft light or overlay mode to texture a manipulation or parts thereof. What most manipulators therefore have in mind, are images like the following:
Beautiful textures, sure, and useful, too, but have you ever thought of doing more with them than the aforementioned overlays? And have you ever considered using other kinds of textures, too?

Hi.This is Anti-honey, formerly Antihoney94, I am here to tell you that I'm still alive, but not being healthy, this is what happened to me -Hi.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've committed suicide, everything was perfect, everything was there where it had to be, it seemed it would work perfectly but -
I've been found in less than a day after I started the vehicle where I fell asleep on sleeping pills, and connected the front window and vent with a hose, at least that's what I'm guessing, I really don't remember anything of it
All I remember is I woke up in a hospital, was told that I was sleeping almost a whole week, the half of my body was paralyzed, I couldn't go anywhere without any help
So I couldn't post anything that I was still alive, I am really sorry about that,
For now I have to go to hospital day by day, at 0400pm, I still can't move(?) my arm delicately and I can't speak english as well as past,
It's like a sentence I used to write within few seconds now I have to think about it more than a minute, I'm very

Just wanted to let you knowYeah, I've said I'll love you guys regardless of who you are, right?Just wanted to let you know1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well that depends on whether or not you're an honest person. Yeah, I've lied before. I've done the same thing someone here had done (not gonna name names here now) - ended up pretty badly. Since then I decided everyone should know who I really am and not some two-faced persona. I try to be as honest as I can because everyone deserves to know all about me - except for the really private secrets.
I shall warn you, though. We could be BFFs for the rest of our lives. Start shit with me for all I care and I'll still love you anyway. Be hypocritical with me in a really major way, such as lying outright to me about important matters, or maybe, you know, PRETENDING to be someone you are NOT - and I promise you that you'll end up sorry you're ever born when I find out the truth.
Korean Law - No Image of Child half Nude or JailREAD THIS IF YOU CONCERNKorean Law - No Image of Child half Nude or Jail1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I saw this on Tumblr - It's for you who did draw a child without proper clothes like 'only short' will be kick to jail!
New Korean Laws - 아청법
The Korean government has recently passed a law that says, in it's most basic form, "Anyone found as a creator, seller, or buyer of materials containing adolescent pornography will be punished as a sexual offender."
Okay, well, that makes sense to stop the production of such things, they're no good after all, right?
This wouldn't be such a problem if the rules weren't as ambiguous as hell.
More specifically, the law states the following counts
Any appearances that could be seen as a teen/child
Any type of pornography from explicit sex to being semi-nude (think mini skirts or swimming suits)
Any media from illustrations, games, videos, films, etc.
Of course, it is purely up to the investigator to decide if the subject is an adolescent or not, or if the act is porn or not.

* What materials do you use?
They're usually stated in the description, but I tend to use the same materials: extra smooth Bristol board (smooth paper is vital for me, it leaves room for a lot of detail, and I need that as I prefer to work on smallish sizes) and Mars Lumograph pencils, ranging from 2B to 6B. Plus mechanical pencils, a putty eraser for highlights, a tortillion perhaps, if I need extra smoothness, a tissue and a cotton bud here and there.
* Do you have any tutorials?
I'm so sorry, I don't, and I don't intend to do any. I have little talent for teaching and even less inclination for it.
* Have you taken any drawing classes?
No, never, I am completely self taught.
* Where can I buy your prints?
You can find prints of most drawings in my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/I

Next month's issue of VJump (street date 11/21/12) contains content related to DB2013's plot line.

Now that I'm actually going to (in about a month) learn what the story's about, I'm getting kinda anxious.
I do have a one-page comic related to the VJump announcement, but it probably won't be finished til later this afternoon/evening. (It's got full color! I missed full color.)

Please forgive me? lol
So I'm trying to be motivated and get serious about my artwork and make a serious career out of it now that I have a step up into the industry. I will also be upgrading to a premium membership again when I have a little bit of spare cash just to pretty my page up and make it a little more professional. I also want to update my display pic/icon, thinking I might even get an animated gif if I can be bothered.

Yes apologies first for nothing new from me for quite a while ... things change and have an impact on your life.. This time though it is for the good. So my artwork is a little on the back burner at the moment.
I appreciate all that follow me and as always comment and fav my work.
But the main reason for this journal is to say if you want to keep an eye on what else I am up, instead of sitting with my beloved pastels.
I have recently opened a FaceBook account, this one mainly for my photos. Again similar to my art account, you can like me on it, but I can follow etc
I have a new camera that I have with me all the time, a FujiFilm X100. It is an amazing camera and so beats lugging my bulky big Canons around all the time.
So with my Ipad and some usefull app I am able to shoot, edit via SnapSeed and then upload, usually from the comfort of my bed. Yes I could upload to here or my other DeviantArt account which is for photos, but the simplicity with the X100 and Ipad works a tr
