What were your first artistic influences, and did they have a hand in the development of your resources?
My first artistic influence for stock art were the girls from Lisajen-stock Their account was pretty much my go-to place to look for pose reference when I first learned about stock on DeviantART because they sometimes wore outfits that showed the arms and legs really clearly. Their stock was the best I could find for pose reference and even though it was helpful, I started to get really eager and antsy to find references that had less clothing on. I turned to nude stock for a while (I think mjranum-stock showed up around then and that was also awesome), but I decided it would just be e

So that's the premise. In our world, we have at least 5 spiritual cosmos: the superior world, the colonies, Earth, the umbraline zone and the inferior world. Mathew (beta name) is our protagonist: he's a sassy 16 old brat that will learn about ethics, values and true meaning of partnership with his fellow demon protected ones: Devon Rex (the son of Cerberus), Porsha (an incubus), Ghede (also known as Baron Samedi), Vyr (a vampire) and even Satan itself. His most reliable ally is the Anti-Christ, the son of Lucifer, and his personal assistants, who'll help him and his other demons accomplishing their missions or even struggling to survive.
Mathew and his humans friends study on a very wealthy school. What I need you guys to do is desig
A Link to the Past 3DS Sequel Announced!Edit: A lot of you are being rather rude and hurtful by an honest mistake. I've heard two sides of the story, BOTH from Nintendo. One saying it's a sequel and another saying it's a remake. I was confused, I am still confused. REGARDLESS, we're getting a really nice game. So please stop being rude/hurtful to an honest mistake. Thanks.A Link to the Past 3DS Sequel Announced!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

PE Interview: Stocker, TudorxRose!:iconTudorxRose: LadyxBoleyn Is the online home of Beccy - though normally you are more likely to find her traipsing across the UK landscape with her camera in hand! As a continuation of our Project Educate Stock & Resources week we sent her our short list of questions to answer.PE Interview: Stocker, TudorxRose!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What were your first artistic influences, and did they have a hand in the development of your resources?
It's hard for me to think of my very first artistic influences. I have always carried my camera everywhere and it just seemed natural for me to share my photographs with Deviant Art members. The first stock providers I remember when joining DA were Elandria and previous stock provider, CausticStock, the former being virtually a celebrity on DA and is widely known for her outstanding resources. At the same time I enjoyed CausticStock's stock photographs of historical sites across the UK, and this inspired me to get out and see these places. Providing resources was a hobby that just grew and grew!

Voice In COTW?Hey folks! I need some ambient crowd chatter for the new COTW (which I finished animating, how I just have to regather voices and then send it to our musical friend Dan to get a score), and I thought instead of finding a generic one, I'd make one from whoever wants to send in stuff? You can say whatever you want (no swears please), just make it vaguely relevent to Cow of the Wild and in the tone that's requested.Voice In COTW?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Here are the parts I need you for;
1. First I need cheering. So just do a cheer for Fang about eating cows or whatever.
2. Luna says, "Everyone stahp, this isn't cool" and the crowd mumbles things like, "who's that?" "what's she saying?" and just other curious questions about who she is and why she's challenging Fang.
3. Someone speaks up to agree with Luna and suddenly everyone is very conflicted - they mutter things like "maybe she's right" "maybe he's wrong" "what i

Just writing a journal entry to let you know I'm going to be gone from the 20th to the 1st. I'm going to Florida! \o/
I haven't been there since I was 6 or so. Ichi and I are going; my parents just retired so they rented a house down there and we are staying with them for a while. Disney World, Universal, shopping, all the fun recreational stuff! This is the second really "nice" trip I've ever been on, so I'm excited (but also scared of crossing the border considering my previous troubles...).
Also I'd like to check out a Sanrio store at some point because I've never been *_*
I will have internet there so I will be able to reply to emails and messages and things, but like I just said on my edited colouring book journal entry, I will not be able to confirm any payments that are coming through mail, for the time being. Sorry about that~
Maybe I'll even be able to do a livestream down there, that'd be nice \o/
I will take lots of pictures. TvT

Cr Update - Photomanipulation - July/Aug. 2011Daily DeviationsCr Update - Photomanipulation - July/Aug. 20114 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get quite a lot of DD suggestions each day and I'm afraid I just don't have time to answer even a small percentage of them any more. I don't answer DD suggestions, nothing personal, just a question of time-management. So, to give you a better idea of what I base my decision to feature something on, here are some points to be considered:
I only take suggestions for photomanipulations that are actually filed under Digital Art (category: Digital Art > Photomanipulation). No darkroom photography, no manips that have been mistakenly placed in the photography category or elsewhere on the site (sorry! too much of a not-so-great example here, community-wise). I can feature manip-heavy mixed media pieces, though - category: Digital Art > Mixed Media.
I'd like to remind you that I need to see credits for the images used (and of course the images need to be legitimate stock - i.e. you have permission to use them in your manip). That goes for all imag

Il tema è... scegli il tuo titolo 8D
Mi spiego meglio. Darò una serie di titoli e ogni partecipante sceglierà quello che maggiormente lo attira e ci farà un disegno/testo scritto sopra. Ognuno di voi sarà libero di disegnare/scrivere ciò che il titolo vi ispira: i suoi personaggi, i miei, esseri umani, altri animali, paesaggi etc., insomma, qualunque cosa vi venga in mente pensando al titolo.

One of the activities for Project Educate: Photomanipulation was for the community to ask questions from more experienced community "experts." For "Ask Me Anything," community members came up with ten excellent questions for ten Experts to answer. Having had time to peruse and consider the questions asked, the Experts kindly returned the answers to be included in this news article. Many thanks to the deviants asking, as well as a huge thank you to the Experts for taking the time to come up with such succinct, detailed, and helpful answers.

This took a lot more effort than I thought it would... it took a long time to get all of your names on a word document, and it took even LONGER to cut them all out and pull them out of a basket.

If you have any questions about polymer clay or this article please don't hesitate to ask.Polymer Clay Secrets Revealed!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
From time to time polymer clay neophytes ask me what tips I can give them to help them improve their craft. In my previous article I already wrote about what kind of clays, tools and techniques can be used, but materials can only take you so far. Although they are helpful, I've seen people creating masterpieces with nothing but homemade clay and practically no tools. After all, clay, tools and resources don't create a masterpiece, you do.
I realized eventually that there's three invaluable and essential things you'll need if you want to succeed as a polymer clay artist. In fact, I think they're needed for all forms of a
