Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for
Tutorial Tuesday: Sketch processSometimes I can talk and talk and talk about how to do things, but until you actually see it come to life before your eyes, you might not fully understand what I'm talking about.Tutorial Tuesday: Sketch process3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also sometimes I have a really long week, and don't have time draw whole new demos for a tutorial...
So here's a sped up video of me drawing a sketch cover! Enjoy!

American Internet Censorship Bill Part 2Yesterday I posted a journal about my thoughts on the American Internet Censorship Bill that was being voted on by the House of Representatives. Within minutes of me posting I found out that the bill was defeated by a majority vote (though a very close one). So for now our precious internet is free once again, but it also raises an entirely different discussion...American Internet Censorship Bill Part 24 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of the comments I saw on the various websites I went to dealt with upholding the true definition of "freedom" on the internet. It was quite apparent that a lot of people who were upset at the idea of internet censorship were more or less concerned that they might have to be held responsible for their bad behavior online.
See, we all participate in illegal activity online. If you've ever downloaded a movie, or used a torrent, or uploaded images that weren't your own, or played an emulated NES game, or even uploaded video clips from a TV show to YouTube... you're technically participating in illegal activity.
Winter Alliance Contest! Greetings, fair Allies! It is my pleasure to announce the Winter Alliance Contest!Winter Alliance Contest!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance was born!
Because I, your founder, have a deep and abiding love for the seasons, this group will now host seasonal contests, and as the Autumn Contest is now over, it is time for Winter to reig
YoungJustice-Season3Hey guys!YoungJustice-Season32 years ago in Personal More Like This
So even though the final episode of the season aired on Saturday and all may seem lost, the YJ fandom is still going to try just as hard (maybe even harder!) to let Cartoon Network keep the show alive.
If you want to stay updated on what you can do to help, you can join the group YoungJustice-Season3 and follow the tumblr blog HelpSaveOurHeroes (http://helpsaveourheroes.tumblr.com/) to stay updated on other fandom projects, like weekly twitter campaigns, to help save both YJ and GL:TAS.
Also, I think the best thing you can do right now, if you're able to, is to buy merchandise! Cartoon Network is cancelling YJ and GL:TAS because it's not profiting enough off of them, so purchasing episodes and the companion comics will show the network that it can make money from these shows.
And if you want to write to Cartoon Network, please remember to keep it civil and polite.
This is no time for any of us to give up! I have faith that we can save our show, but we all need to d
What's Hot (Beta): Trending Artwork on deviantARTArt on the RiseWhat's Hot (Beta): Trending Artwork on deviantART2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
DeviantART is a bustling and active community, and with the high volume of artwork submitted on any given day, it can be easy to miss something. In fact, it's common for artwork to go viral across the Web or get a spike of traffic days, months, or even years after it was originally submitted.
Our new “What’s Hot” browse mode surfaces artwork that’s receiving a recent increase in exposure, regardless of when it was submitted.
A New Way To Surface Artwork
We often see artwork gain a lot of attention across the Web (after being shared on blogs, social sites, etc.), but by the time this recognition occurs, our search engines don't consider it when displaying recently "Popular" deviations. The new "What’s Hot" mode is built to celebrate these surges of exposure.
What's Hot vs. Popular
The content of the “What’s Hot” page uses an algorithm that reflects what artwork has recently garnered attention, regardless of when it was subm
Tutorial Tuesday: FacesOkay lets draw some faces! Before we jump in let me just say that this tutorial is for the general guideline to draw faces. Every human being is built a little different so even though I'm going to give you a guideline on how you should draw faces, know that these are the average proportions. As in if you took every human being on the planet and averaged their proportions you'd get something like this. But individuals will have eyes that might be slightly farther apart. or noses that are longer etc. So use these as a starting point then exagerate certain features to create you're own unique looking character.Tutorial Tuesday: Faces3 years ago in Personal More Like This

2. the winner's full name will be in the credits.

Kung Fu StreetEXTREME STREET PHOTOGRAPHY - IIIKung Fu Street2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Are there places were street photography is impossible? Are there countries easier than others, or harder than others? How is it street shooting like in exotic places, or places you never visited, places that are completely different from what you are used to? I asked a few street photographers around the world to share with us their experiences.
This article was written for us by :iconNattygrego:
I often say that China is a street photographer paradise. The cities' streets are filled with a huge amount of life and situations one more interesting than the other. I am using a compact camera to shoot street, and that makes me look like a traveler or a tourist, the chance of taking photo is thus increased as people only consider me as such. Although a camera has become something really usual here in China (we all have seen groups of tourists in our respective countries), but street photography is an 'unknown' art. It often str
