Project Educate: Photographing Your Crafts...Project Educate: Photographing Your Crafts...3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Photographing crafts is not as daunting as it seems. For those of you out there with amazing creative streaks in you, it isn't actually that difficult to take it one step further and put the effort into snapping your wonderful creations. It just takes a little planning, a camera and some creativity.
Rule Number One
Never ever ever ever ever Photograph something on your bed. Ever. I mean it! Your bed is for sleeping, and er, other things. But definitely not for placing your well constructed craft item upon, pointing your camera at, and pressing the button.
You might think I'm stating the obvious but seriously, the amount of people who think they'll just pop their item on the bed and take a picture...is..well..I don't have the statistics but there are many of Us!
Rule Number Two
Stay away from your cluttered up shelves and bits and pieces. Put your craft i

People of Austria I have a mission for you!I was just informed earlier today that my work was featured in a newspaper from Austria yesterday, Friday 15th. I WANT THAT NEWSPAPER. I NEED THAT NEWSPAPER. I was told it was a small article but it doesn't matter, it's the first time I'm published so I want to own it Edit: I don't know which newspaper was it!

3000 Watcher GiveawaySo I'm about 50 watchers from 3000, and the last giveaway I had was at 1000 watchers. I think it's time to have another random drawing giveaway!3000 Watcher Giveaway2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The prize this time around will be a commission for a food of your choice in 1:12 scale as either a magnet, piece of jewelry, or just a miniature.
Anyone who is watching me at or before 3000 watchers is eligible to win. I will announce when I've reached 3000 and do the drawing the following day.
In other news, I've discovered I can't cut balsa wood to save my life.
I've also thrown out my back to the point where it hurts to move. \o/ There's some inherited thing from my dad's side of the family where the lower back will just go and it's like a giant, painful cramp all the way down the back of my left leg. Bending over is not an option...nor is moving, really. It'll be me and the heat pad for the next few days. Plus some Dragon Age 2 (Anders, why are you such a sexy group of pixels? >.
Announcing the deviantART Creative GrantsAnnouncing the deviantART Creative GrantsAnnouncing the deviantART Creative Grants3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
At deviantART, we have spent the past 11 years building a place where artists can share and discuss their work and get inspired by the work of their contemporaries. A noble cause, for certain, but we would like to be so much more to our beloved community of brilliant creatives. Starting today, deviantART will also be a means of inspiration in an entirely new way with financial support for art.
On 3 month cycles, deviantART will accept applications from artists seeking to fund art-related projects. A panel called the Creative Grants Board will pick those projects that they believe will benefit particularly from a Grant and give those artists the support they need to make it happen. The lucky few who are chosen to receive Grants will also be given a beautiful accolade on their deviantART Profile Page to celebrate their succes

SeeU TutorialWell I know its a little late but most people on Votaku and Youtube know by now that I got Seeu for Christmas. Since I never really put anything special for seeu here ... Well I'll make this little post. This will be a little mini tutorial with tips.SeeU Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seeu is by far my favorite vocaloid. You can kinda compare her to Sonika. No Seeu is not really muffled and very bad quality. The reason I compare the two is because they are both very versatile and great for people who experimenting and working with configurations. Seeu's Korean voicebank gives users a chance to mess around with phonemes that are not in a Japanese voicebank. The Korean bank only works with hangul input so you will be forced to work with her on a phonetic level ... But thats not bad because we want to work directly with her phonemes. Her Japanese voicebank is slightly higher in voice and has an over all more moe effect to her then

"Veggie55 brought me here": more of a Real Life Running Gag than anything. With the end of Season 2, the deviantART artist Veggie55 has taken to making short comic strips based of scenes from popular tv shows like Father Ted and Family Guy. In the comments section for each, he usually links to the video, which leads to his legion of fans watching it, liking it, and getting the top rated comments, most of them referencing the comic (something which non-bronies would not understand). Exempli gratia.
This is literally THE funniest thing I have ever seen, thanks for showing me, Excalibur <3

My deviantART StoryIt has now been over 10 years since I first decided to join deviantART and little did I know then, this decision would end up forging my entire life and career.My deviantART Story4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I wish I remembered exactly how it all started, but I'm going to go with my best guess and say I heard about it from another student when I started college back when I had just turned 18. Up until then I had been using various art forums such as wcreplays.com, animex.com, sijun.com and cgsociety.org so the discovery of a portfolio website was a pretty cool thing.
I started posting on here and got moderate attention, I had been drawing for a long time at that point so my art was in a state where it was at least interesting to look at. If anything it was a fantastic place to get inspiration and look at art from amazingly talented artists.
It wasn't until I decided to color the line-art for the following piece that everything really started.
Characters I Love: SupergirlCharacters I Love: Supergirl4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Jenn from Dangerous Ladies @ DA
I had been thinking about doing something like this for a while. Outlining why I enjoy certain characters and who better to start out with than my favorite superheroine, Supergirl.
I feel slightly bad that I can't recall when I first learned of Supergirl's existence. After much thinking (and head pounding) my best guess is it was with the Superman: The Animated Series episode Little Girl Lost. Now before I was a Supergirl fan I was (still am but as I say, Kara is easier on the eyes lol) a Superman fan. I know people call him boring, a boy scout, but Superman is the archetype superhero. Personally, I like the idea of an absolute good guy hero so Supes always will be one of my favorite heroes. So as a much younger Mad Man (minus my pen though) I watched STAS and fed my growing love of the DCAU. Then we get to Little Girl Lost and I meet Supergirl.

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject

This contest is going to be pretty simple. It involves two amazing things that are rarely combined -- llamas and giant grandma underwear.

Getting into comics is something a lot of people want to know how to do, but there's a lot of questions you want to ask yourself first. There is such a vast array of genre and sub-genre, technique, approach, and so on, that it's important to be clear where you want to go with your work at the outset – and you have to be REALLY honest and tough on yourself.
Do you want to draw:
If you're into the capes and tights and you want to go mainstream you're going to have to want it incredibly badly, as the competition is the most extreme I've ever known it right now. There seems to be more titles than ever - and with the digital revolution more people are capable of producing sleek, mainstream quality art - but right across the

Fantasize a bit, what this new Dea Vivente is going to look like? Probably, she will stay like this, but maybe you will not recognize her when she is a heroine of new photographs.
Right now I'll show you the results of high firing the doll's parts put together. The new porcelain that the girls are cast from is beautiful flesh toned, shining a bit and even shimmering. I'm glad that Dea Vivente are going to become even better.
I like the look of fired porcelain this is yet the "blank canvas" meant for picturing a painting.
And now some words about painting.
