Apollo Spashdown Diorama: FinishedFor some reason, all the space sites I follow can't stop talking about Apollo 11. Pictures of the moon landing, etc. that kept popping up on my facebook news feed nagged me to revisit an idea I had a few months ago. I wanted to make a small diorama of an Apollo spashdown with an astronaut exiting the hatch. So I got to work.Apollo Spashdown Diorama: Finished10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Except this time, it won't be small. Instead of sitting centered on a 6x6 panel, the command module will be dwarfed by a vast ocean.
I started by sanding the paint off one of my lost causes and priming the surface with a heavy gesso. I mixed in some paper towel to create a base for the waves.
While that dried, I began to tackle the problem of making a real life spacecraft out of the contents of this box.

As some of you may have realized, I was away for the first 1/3 of October, -for good and planned reasons, though-
but then I have had a challenging time trying to return both to my "regular life" as well as to my "life" here on dA, for a couple personal reasons. But anyway, I'm doing the best I can, and things are slowly improving-
but I just want to THANK YOU SO MUCH!

10 tips about drawing #3 - ShadingThird round of 10 simple and effective tips about drawing, this time a bit more spesific, time to delve into shading, the one area I feel I have progressed the most.10 tips about drawing #3 - Shading3 years ago in Personal More Like This
**This is my own personal take and oppinion about shading, take it with a grain of salt **
1. Shade and blend An extremely common way to shade, but not only overused but more often than not used incorrectly.
You lay down a value pref. with an HB or softer pencil and blend it into the paper from the dark to the light, but the thing here to remember is to not go too hard in blending at first, if you do it is very tricky to manipulate the values after.
Think of the tooth of the paper like grass, don´t just stomp them down on the first go, gently grace the paper with a blending stump/tissue/q-tip etc and once you start to approach the desired value you can go a little harder.
2. Directional blending Much as 1. but directional blending means you always blend following the curve of what you are drawi

mmm storms winds pounding multi-day rains ... beautiful clouds in violent curves of purple grey'd yellows and blacks as deep as this heart when loved quieted cities ... drowning rats being pursued by swimming dogs ... hushed university libraries and drifting conversations with Art's professors who are clueless as to who is and who isn't an enrolled student in this antique place

New deviantART ThumbnailsHey folks!New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may remember a while back we showed off some brand new thumbnails in #hq's Journal. Well, after many weeks of porting and tweaking based on community feedback, we finally got these brand new thumbs ready for beta testing!
The new thumbnails
UPDATE (May 19, 2012): Based on feedback received, we've updated the new thumbnails to be justified. Thumbnails are now spaced out across the rows, making them flush against the left and right sides of the page. When a browser's window is too small, justification cannot happen without leaving larger awkward spaces. In these cases, justification is turned off and thumbnails become left aligned. We think these changes present the most appealing interface for both cases.
For those of you who didn't see the new thumbs when they were previewed a month back, here's a re

Inspiration: Art websitesMany people asked me about which sites I use (or used) to learn and keep myself updated about art. So I decided to make a list with art websites that offer tutorials, advice, or other content that inspired me. Of course there are many other individual artists that inspire me greatly, but I've tried to keep this list to the ones that provide the community of advice and tutorials (otherwise I could go on forever).Inspiration: Art websites7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
