Are you caught in 'The Technique Trap?'Hello family! Chris Oatley wrote a very interesting post about what he's terming "The Technique Trap" over on his blog. He writes: "Unfortunately, technique is often the only thing young artists ever think about." I believe that this is true for two reasons: 1) I was caught up in this as a young artist trying to break into the comic book industry. Back in the day, I could only afford to attend the Chicago Comic Convention, and I would spend months working on my portfolio. I would finish it mere minutes before the con, and then walk in, past the 'original art' tables, and immediately cry at how horrible my portfolio is in comparison to the professional comic pages in front of me. I wanted to draw just like those guys! But as time passed, I realized that it was folly, and that I needed to learn how to tell a visual story, rather than just 'copy' what someone else was doing. And secondly, I get more questions about technique than anything else! And I have to be honest, it's easier to answAre you caught in 'The Technique Trap?'2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Journal updated, with my scanning technique=======Journal updated, with my scanning technique2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've got so many questions about how I scan my traditional artworks, I also wanted to try out my deviantart Sta.sh storage, so I've uploaded some scanned files and put them on this journal.
Here's my method.
: I use HP G4050 scanner
: My current working OS is Windows 7, but I always use Windows XP to scan my artworks
: I always put 2 bluish-tint transparent films under my pictures when scanning. [You can buy transparent film at stationery stores.]
: Then adjust colors with photoshop, I always set contrast to [+12] or [+14] and I always use legacy contrast.
: I also adjust sharpness sometimes.
[filter>sharpen>unsharp mask> and adjust radius to : +1 pixels.
: Remove all eraser dust using clone stamp tool and it's done.
Someone might wonder why don't I use windows 7 for scanning, why do I have to put 2 transparent films underneath, and why they have to be bluish tint, I have uploaded some sample images for you to compare.
TUTORIAL - Tips for All ArtistsHello everyone!TUTORIAL - Tips for All Artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have written a tutorial like this before here. But recently I have had more thoughts about it that I decided to share. As you may have noticed, I am not a professional artist, I am a hobbyist and self-taught, and what I will expose here is what I've learnt from my own experience. Even so, I hope this tutorial will be helpful to you!
Another note: English is not my first language, so I apologize if I commit any mistakes.
Feel free to correct my grammar any time, as well as make suggestions or asking questions!
This tutorial is for every kind of artist, but sometimes I will focus more on visual artists (since it's my speciality).
I believe that everyone can be an artist, and this tutorial has not only the purpose of providing advices and tips, but also motivation for all.

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

I've been finding a lot of tracings of my most recent sketches (especially the commissioned ones) floating around the galleries. I'm getting fed up with it. I really don't appreciate my art being used for ANYTHING, especially without my permission (nor do they credit).

Last year, I submitted a piece to a diversity contest, and like, it took me 10 or so hours to get the whole thing done for the contest. It was... Well you can see it in the photo in the link above.
But like, last week I got a call that only said " KCC"( This is my school's name: Kellogg Community College.) on my phone. and I was like " Holy fucking shit, my financial aid didn't go through and I'm going to have to pay for my classes." But it was a call about them wanting me to do a radio interview. And at that point I was practically in shock, and couldn't really say anything, so it was just inaudible sounds on my eeeennnd...
Tttthen! Then on Monday, of this week I got a call from KCC again and it was a jittery woman telling me that I was to attend an awards ceremony for the diversity contest, and I had won $100 on my piece.
Then I cried.
I am just really nervous about this coming monday and the ceremony.
