Digital CollageWhat do we mean by digital collage?Digital Collage3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What’s the difference between a digital collage and a photomanipulation?
The basic definition of Digital Collage is that it is a form of graphic art that uses virtual imagery and textures from different sources pieced and layered together (in a program such as Photoshop) into one final assembled image. The difference between digital collage and photomanipulation is that in a digital collage the artist usually works to make it somewhat obvious that the finished image has been made by “pasting” different images together.
Digital collage tends to rely heavily on traditional collage strategies such as ~
Chiasmage - consistent destruction of the primary motifs. The structures of various types of print, of music sheets, letters, geographic and star maps, chessboards or photographs are torn to little pieces and then put together again and glued to a base.

I have uploaded the pictures of the main pattern pieces for the jacket to my scrapbook. Take a look if you are having troubles modifying your own pattern! (I couldn't find the pattern for the collar, I drew it on a piece of paper somewhere and I think it is gone now... sorry!)
I have had a lot of requests asking how I made the jacket for my cosplay, so I decided I would write a quick overview of what went into making it. I will not go into excruciating detail, but if you would like more help on any particular section, please leave a comment and I would be happy to elaborate!
STEP 1: Picking fabric
Print lots of good colored reference shots for yourself (or carry a smartphone with you) before heading to the fabric store. It goes without saying that you want to pick fabric with color that closely resembles your source, but it is also important to take into consideration things like the thickness and flexibility of yo
International Day of People With DisabilitiesDecember 3rd, for twenty-one years, has been International Day of People With Disabilities and every year strives to promote the understanding of a person with a disability. The day raises awareness to their rights, well-being, and even dignity. While this day may not be well known, the message of this very important day should not be forgotten or overlooked.International Day of People With Disabilities1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
There is no difference between a person with a disability and a person without, they deserve equal treatment and equal consideration in all aspects of life.
"Equality is the soul of liberty; there is, in fact, no liberty without it." -Frances Wright
There are many groups here on deviantART who support and promote art made by people with disabilities:

So yeah the next chapter in "All that is Fair Part 1" has been taking some time to complete. I am going to tell you why, it has been taking so frakkin long.
I last updated the story back in December during my last winter break from college. By last I mean that as the last winter break of my undergraduate career. After that I focused on completing my senior thesis. That included completing my experiments and writing up the results,write a grant, and I also prepared three different presentations of my work. This took me to Graduation at the end of May.
I know I should have put my story on Hiatus but I was scared that I would lose some you. I didn't complete drop the story I would work on it here and there. Then I had a little bit of time before my family, friends and fiancee showed up so I reviewed what i had done in those five months. To make it short I didn't like what I had written for

Today we will learn how to make smoooth animation! In this tutorial we will cover a basic movement, but sometimes difficult to look natural, jumping.
I am using a pixel black ball as the subject, but really, you can apply this tutorial to anything you want to jump! Like animals and humans (of coarse they would bend their legs instead of squish.;D)! If your animation starts to "trail", or you simply don't know how to animate, you can check out some other tutorials I have made that are linked at the bottom.
Let us begin!
Lets start with the subject. I am using a 13x13 pixel black ball, but you can use anything, even if it isn't pixeled.
Now for the squish! This is the set move to gather energy for the jump. You wouldn't jump straight legged, would you? For my ball, I made it shorter, and expanded it out some on both ends. If your subj

Nuances of an Annual Ritual
Which brings us to each year’s communal celebration of the passing of our lifetimes:
New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

I have been thinking of changing the name of my person OC (the one trotting at the bottom). Right now he is called Brass Arrow. The name came form a mix of a name generated by a MLP name generator at rum Monkey and the metal I think of when I say steampunk. The original generated name became the main focus of my fan fiction starring Steel Arrow.
If any of your read this what do you think keep it or change with something else? If enough interest is show I post up another journal (because you need a premium account to make a poll) with some of my options.
Luna EclipseWow that Luna episode. Not quite the voice I imagine little to high pitched and not as soft as I imagined. Well at lest one of our theories was correct she does seem like a trickster, and she just trying to fit in but a lot has changed in 1000 and she just trying what she remembers to be the norm. But that leaves one question what has she been doing for over a year? Unless the episode are not in chronological order in the airing time line.Luna Eclipse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So this episode could in pony universe time it could have taken place right after she came back so ponies could have been still scared of her. But in the past season there is really no proof to support my theory in full. But it would explain a lot of the trouble she had during the celebration one year after her return.
By no means does this take away from the episode. It will be in my top five favorites. Viva the new lunar republic.
Soul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!So today I received a treat in my facebook inbox from old colleague and now-kickass GW artist, Kevin "Kingmong" Chin: http://www.blacklibrary.com/Blog/Art_and_Soul.htmlSoul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Right now, I'm still awaiting a response from the Black Librarians to see if I am allowed to post some higher-res versions of my 3 Soul Drinkers covers here on DA. Till then, this is all they have up on their blog and all I have to show for, for now! For you Soul Drinkers fans out there, I was told not to reference any notable characters of the SD lore and come up with my own designs.
The general brief for the 3 covers was to have a tactical space marine, a captain, and lastly a dreadnought (being awoken). I thought it would be a neat idea to compose all the covers from a similar worms eye angle, not just for theatrics but rather to literally show the life cycle of a Space Marine as he fights and rises through the ranks, leading his brethren and eventually being entombed within a dreadnought to continue his tireless fig

Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.

Well it is finals week at my universty in the pacific northwest. The weather is cold but yet no rain or snow has fallen down low. Instead it decided to be bright and the air is kind of gunky looking. It is all rather confusing. But yet I find myself not being able to get into the Christmas spirit at all this year because of the weather.
Plus the heat doesn't seem to be working in the library, so it rather chilly inside. It would not be so bad if I was just studing in the library, but I also work at the library as well. Today I am pulling a double shift.
I would not be so bad if there was snow on the ground, and more of a holiday atmosphere around campus.

Generally, an app drawn similar to AT style is preffered, but not required (however, keep in mind that an app drawn similar to AT style will have an edge over one that doesn't).
