TIPS AND ADVICEOver the last few weeks I’ve been getting lots of requests for tips and advice. So I thought instead of answering each one I will give an overall guide to what I’ve learnt over the last year using graphite. And some of the things I’m going to say may sound very obvious but I’m trying to cater for artists of all levels so just ignore the bits you already know (I apologise for how long this is).TIPS AND ADVICE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But before I go on I must point out though, that I am no expert and this is just what I’ve found works for me so may not work for everyone. And I have only really started getting used to using graphite pencils recently, as I had not drawn for 11 years until September 2012. And so I am still learning myself and have only found out what works for me from allot of practising and trial and error. Also I am not going to go into doing skin textures as I’m still learning what works and it’s far too complicated to describe on here.

I know you from a person I watch.

Yes, you try to help. But you are doing it wrong.
You are in fact making the situation worse by asking stupid questions and being a douchebag. YOU ARE MAKING HER DEPRESSION WORSE (well, you're one of the factors).
Some of you by now may know who I'm talking about.

3 Year Anniversary So I just looked down on my page and I saw that today was my dA birthday! I've been here for 3 years now and it's been so much fun! I think that's pretty cool that I've been here for that long. If it wasn't for google I probably would have never found this site! xD I joined the community for the art and staying for the community spirit!3 Year Anniversary 1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I want to give a random deviant 100 points for leaving a comment about how long you've been here, how you got here and why you're still here. xD
That's really it.
Farewell...Perhaps it would be better if I didn't return...Farewell...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
dA would be so much better without me...
Sorry...but I think I'm becoming crazy, wishing to hurt myself from craving blood...
Maybe we may meet on some other website...or back on here, but with a different account...
Plus this account is going nowhere...
But....like I've said before...please don't leave because...dA will STILL be the same without me...I am not needed...
Especially you Jin...
Don't even harm yourself because of me...
Perhaps I can return when I'm more stable...
But not anytime soon...

dA, calm down. Haven't you changed your panties enough yet? Just got used to their V7 and ka-boom! V8! Haha... V8...
PS: I got rid of the 'Activity' feed thing on my page... that part of this update was the one that was annoying.
Do not want.
Otherwise it's not too bad...
This... could take some time to get used to... :I Because you know what? I have a gut feeling it's not going anywhere...
Needless to say I am not that impressed. However, I will get used to it... as long as they don't enforce that ridiculously obnoxious 'Activity feed' widget thing. That was just 'WHOA, NO.'

Good NewsI'm excited to let you know that Autodesk, Inc. has made an investment in deviantART and that one of Autodesk's top executives, Samir Hanna, Vice President of the Autodesk Consumer Group, will become an observer on the deviantART Board of Directors.Good News2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Autodesk has over 30 years of history in helping designers create amazing things. You may know Autodesk for apps like SketchBook and Pixlr for drawing, illustration, and image editing, or for software like 3ds Max and Maya, which are used by the top film and game studios around the world to create fantastically realistic 3D characters, environments, and effects. Amazing fact: the last 17 Academy Award winners for Best Visual Effects use Autodesk software. Autodesk is also known for engineering software like AutoCAD, Inventor, and Revit, which has been used to design some of the world’s tallest buildings, longest bridges, and most incredible machines.
With the investment we plan to improve deviantART at a faster pace than we coul
Pretty big art theft (Ebay)I was asked to post a little something about this in a journal.Pretty big art theft (Ebay)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently there's a 'store' on Ebay that's taking and selling random pieces of artwork that they find/found on the web.
I'm not sure whose art they have all taken but from what I was told and what I read they've taken quite a few things from dA and are currently claiming that they either made their pieces or that they're 'free domain' images which somehow (but some nonexistent sense of logic) justifies taking other people's work and printing it to sell for big money. Mind you the artists who made these pieces don't see a penny of the profits as far as I know… perhaps a few are aware their works are being sold but I'm pretty sure a lot of them aren't.
This is the store:: http://stores.ebay.ca/lecanvas
There's a good chance you'll recognize a few images from various dA artists, I know I do.
This, my friends, is illegal. This, my friends, is the plain as day definition of art theft in it's purest form.

Account Security - An UpdateRecently, there has been some rumours spreading throughout the community about a hacker going around taking over accounts and deactivating them. We'd like to reassure you on this matter, and to also provide you some useful pointers in order to keep your account secure.Account Security - An Update5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Upon hearing these "hacker" claims, we put our supersleuth dT Team to the task of making sure that nothing untoward was going on, and to verifythat there was no exploits within the deactivation process. We have been assured that there's no exploit that is being used to access accounts and deactivate them. There is a far simpler and less sinister answer, however and it's something that every one of us can take a proactive stance towards -- passwords. You need them for just about everything these days. What's the point of having them if you're only going to make them something really simple? The use of strong passwords is one of the most basic aspects of internet security.

Break those bad habits in PhotoshopWe all know that Photoshop can offer endless methods to accomplish the same task, being an extremely versatile application. The workflow is different from one person to another, but which technique is the best for the task at hand? That can be difficult to understand for users who just started to use Photoshop and are trying to improve but they do not know what to choose when there are so many ways of producing the same effect.Break those bad habits in Photoshop2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Working on a single layer
First things first, no matter what you want to do in Photoshop it is always best to work on separate layers, leaving the background layer alone. This allows you to go back later and make changes to the layers you made. You don't like the color balance you modified back then? Don't worry, you have the flexibility of removing the layer or making changes to it so that it works with your concept and idea.
This is what they call a non-destructive workfl

About deviantNAVAbout deviantNAV1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, this thing caused quite a stir! So let me talk a little bit about it – on a more personal note – and give a bit of rationale behind this style and the new features in general, since i have your attention right now.
First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who liked this, +fav’d it, mentioned it, and thanked me personally; you seriously made my day! And to those of you who don’t like it and prefer deviantART’s new design, that’s totally fine too!
Now. I don’t “hate” the new features that got released just now, the navbar included. I don’t think they will “ruin” deviantART. None of that nonsense. In fact, i see a vision of dA that looks more modern, and i see a lot of potential. (The new Today page in particular is a godsend compared to the old one.) But i also think that there is room for improvement, and that’s the reason i made this.

Granted, I'm not around here much these days and I'm busy working, doing what I love, photography. That being said however, I couldn't stay quiet any longer.
What in the world has happened to this site? Usually I blow things like this over and mind my own business but when it hits my wallet, well that's a different entirely and something needs to be said.
The site here seems to be dying, literally. I've noticed not only a huge drop in my viewership but also in other high profile photographers work as well. In fact, it's safe to say that in that regards, things have absolutely tanked and crashed and burned. Something is wrong with this picture.
My print sales have absolutely tanked. Other people I'm friends with are saying the exact same thing as well. It seems that our shop here on DA is now an empty Main Street and we're not entirely sure why but would like to know w

Strangers on the InternetSo September has come and almost gone, and I've just returned from an awesome 8 days away in Malta with Kyramy. We had a good time, explored a good proportion of the island and acquired a range of weird and wacky tan lines.Strangers on the Internet1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Whilst we were there, we went on a jeep trip around Malta and with an elderly couple from London. It didn't take long for them to ask the question 'So how do you guys know each other?'.
With so much negativity about people meeting on the internet, I always find this a tricky question to answer. It's not the first time I've jetted off around the world with someone I met through deviantART, and at least this time we had previously met in person. So it was interesting to see how we each took on the question, especially when asked by a generation who didn't have the internet for the majority of their lives.
My slant is simply 'We are part of the same art community'. It takes away the scariness of 'the internet' and I always find it awkward to men
