Motion Blur Stills with ChaoticaA quick and very underused technique to create blur effects.Motion Blur Stills with Chaotica2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
The principle is simple: you create a short animation and, instead of rendering it entirely, just render one frame, which will be your final artwork.
Step 1: you need some parameters to animate. I used a simple plastic with only 2 transforms.
Step 2: Open the animation editor (Ctrl+T or Window > Animation Editor). Set total length to some reasonably amount of time. I use 30-60sec currently, since its short enough to not get lost and long enough to have some room to tweak to control the blurring.
Exposure time controls the amount of motion blur. No worry much about getting the "right" value right now, since you can change it at any point.
Since we are only looking for one frame and not a full animation, there is no need to create many keyframes: 2 usually do the job. If, after making the animation, there are no frames that you like, you can just change one of th

A Critique of a CritiqueSo, meandering around the internet I found myself on a Art/Critique thread. Egotistical and arrogant, because that is my natural state, I wanted to hear all the great things anyone and everyone had to say.A Critique of a Critique3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Because my Mamma told me I'm special, of course the world thinks as such.
WELL. I am not a special, special snowflake as the internet berated me with a very interesting argument that after a series of trolling and vehement pouting, I listened to it. I also wanted to share it with you.
A majority of the disagreements were based on anatomy. It's an age old argument amongst the elitist and modernist of the art word, I assume. One side claims everything less than Di'Vinci styled art, classical renaissance and all other is not
BrokenI am the most boiled down form of justification.Broken2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I look at a new face, I see it from 6 different angles. Two eyes, times three senses of direction. And before you finish shaking hands with me, I will know what your dreams are.
Do you ever wonder what your problems really are? World weariness, fear, and unrealistic goals force you out of bed in the morning, and drive you like a pack animal. Day by day, you continually fill with anxiety and longing.
I am past all of that. For me, that was only "growing up". What about the difficult and unfair world? What about the dream-swallowing darkness? Cold of spreading wars and warm razor blade baths? The worst of the worst? Yes, I know all of it well. But it was dismissed, like a bad dream, when I finally woke up.
I am so relaxed. And even in a place made of unrest and bad temperaments, my day is always a simple pleasure. I have every scenario carefully mapped out, so almost everything is anticipated, seen in perfect timing. For everything th

"The colours and the gesture of this work reminds me of autumn's rain."
"These are like the colors of autumn. And I love how the bottom of her dress looks like small pumpkins. It also makes me think on Halloween! This chibi is soooo cute and a very well done piece. "
"I love the carefree and cheerful feeling this painting conveys, showing that although summer has ended, yet there is still much to look forward to!"
"To me, this artwork shows how autumn can also be associated with melancholy and loneliness."
"This piece is incredibly well done. It suggests the short moment when the trees are caug

Feature O' Friends #2Hello, one and all!Feature O' Friends #21 year ago in Personal More Like This
Time for our next issue of Feature O' Friends!! This series is aimed at developing and nurturing community spirit by allowing members to suggest a friend to be featured in the next issue! Those who suggest a friend will also have their art featured as well.
Interested? Come on, we'd love to see who you're willing to suggest! But before you do any suggesting, here are some guidelines and steps you should take in order to participate.
First, think of a friend who you think deserves a feature, and write up to 5 sentences why you think your friend should be featured. Give other members a reason to check your friend out!
Next, choose two deviations from their gallery. Choose the ones you love, or the ones you think deserve the most attention. Get the thumb codes ("") of these deviations, and add them into your suggestion.
After that, grab two deviations from your gallery

This was my third year attending the art show in my quaint little seaside town. It's a pretty big deal here and people come from far to celebrate with us and escape the inland heat. It was a great success as I doubled what I did last year. People are fascinated with fractals! I took my laptop so I could show them where fractals come from.
I have been sharing a booth with a friend who does watercolors and sells little cards. Next year I will have my own booth as I have grown to big to share. I hope to double again. I'm terrible about taking pictures and kick myself every time but I will share one of the few pictures I took.
I am finally caught up, things put away, restocked my etsy shop now it's time to get back to fractaling!
Happy Summer to all!
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!March 17th is traditionally known as St. Patrick's Day, a time to celebrate the Irish, feast, and enjoy all things green. It commemorates Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Among numerous achievements, St. Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland, at least according to legend. Today, there are parades around the world to celebrate the day. And for many, St. Patrick's Day is a reminder that spring is on its way!Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
But, of course, there's more to Irish culture than green, clovers, and good luck. One of the many interesting traditions of the Irish culture involves the Blarney Stone, found at Blarney Castle outside of Cork. Visitors come from all over the world to participate in the castle's famous
