What is Vector Art?What Is Vector Art?What is Vector Art?12 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Vector Art is a technique, not a style.
Perhaps a better term would be "vector-based art," meaning art created in a vector-based program. Vector art consists of creating paths and points in a program such as Illustrator or Freehand. The program keeps track of the relationships between these points and paths. Vectors are any scaleable objects that keeps their proportions and quality when sized up or down. They're defined as solid objects, and can be moved around in full, or grouped together with other objects. Vectors can be defined by mathematical and numeric data. So vector art is anything that's created in Illustrator, Freehand, Corel Draw, Flash or other "vector" illustration programs.
(Vector programs: Illustrator, Freehand, Corel Draw, Flash, etc.)
The other side of the coin is raster art. Raster art consists of pixel information, where every pixel is assigned a RGB or CMYK value. This can create smoother and more detailed images for photo

Tutorial: How to find MMD model links ...Tutorial: How to find MMD model links ...3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It seems a lot of people really do have trouble finding models that they've seen and like for MMD. I have a lot of people who visit my Deviant Art gallery asking for links and this can get irritating as I am not in the habit of collating links. However, there is a percentage of people who genuinely are new to MMD and really have no idea, and it is for these people that I am writing this brief tutorial.
Almost all models available for MMD exists somewhere on the Internet for download with perhaps the following exceptions:
Those that are sold commercially (Windows 100% models)Those that were taken out of circulation by their creatorsThose that are made privately for personal enjoyment or private collections
In general, you should NEVER ask for a download link for these as in the case of 1 & 2, where download links exists, they are probably ILLEGAL (as in you'll probably be breaking applicable Copyright Laws if you used those links). As for case 3,

Artist ConfessionsI was talking with a friend recently and it made me think about things. Maybe this isn't the place for a post like this but DA is really the only online site I use so I have no other output.Artist Confessions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will start off by saying that DA is a really great site. I've had so many wonderful experiences on this site and met many people that I'm so thankful for knowing. The support I've received has been amazing, and when I joined, I never thought in a million years that I'd have the amount of followers I do or that people would like my art to the extent they do. It's remarkable and gives me a wonderful feeling.
Unfortunately, I've also noticed some alarming trends in recent years. I'm not sure if it's just me but I feel like the internet is becoming a place of increased 'meanness'. It's not necessarily that people are becoming meaner; it's more that the internet makes it easy for people to anonymously post hurtful things towards artists/people they dislike for whatever reason (it removes our inhibitio
Screentone or are you ...?Screentone or are you ...?6 years ago in Personal More Like This
" Screentone is a technique for applying textures and shades to drawings, used as an alternative to hatching. In the conventional process, patterns are transferred
to paper from preprinted sheets, but the technique is also simulated in computer graphics. It is also known by the common brand names Zip-A-Tone (1937, now defunct),
Chart-Pak (1949), and Letratone (1966, from Letraset).
A traditional screentone sheet consists of a flexible transparent backing, the printed texture, and a wax adhesive layer. The sheet is applied to the paper, adhesive down,
and rubbed with a stylus on the backing side. The backing is then peeled off, leaving the ink adhered to the paper where pressure was applied.A screentone saves an artist's
time by allowing quick application of textures to line art where a hand-shaded area would not be reproduced in a timely or acceptable manner. Much like halftone, the size
and spacing of black dots, lines, or hatches determine how light or dark an area will appear.

How to: Margin + PaddingFor this tutorial series I am explaining different elements you can create or modify with the help of CSS. The level of experience that is needed to be able to understand the tutorials can differ and will be in no order.How to: Margin + Padding2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
However I will try to explain the things as simple as possible. Upcoming questions should be left in a comment directly to this blog so that people with similar problems can look them up later as well.
The tutorial series is based on the gruze-structure of journals. If you are still using the old structure or have a journal installed that used it, things won’t work the same way like explained below.
For simple skins the old structure is fine, but the more features you add, the more I would recommend using the gruze-structure. You can look up the differences here: http://ginkgografix.deviantart.com/art/Old-vs-Gruze-Journals-112772369
It seems like a lot of people are struggling with the usage of margin and padding. In the end it doesn’t matter ho
