Sketchbook Pro 6So most of you know that I'm a Sketchbook Pro user.Sketchbook Pro 63 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.
We still have the cleverly-designed user interface, that makes it easy on the eyes and mind when we're brainstorming and sketching. With the handful of new tools introduced, we still have a clutter-free drawing environment, and man, there's some awesome tools this time around. I'll go down the list:
The Brush Library
The main brush toolbar itself has a click-and-drag function, allowing you to store all your often-used brushes in each of the "lanes". You then can click the button on the upper-right and then a fu
N7 Shirt Mod!After some weeks of work here is a new mod for the game almost finished, a shirt for Maleshep and Femshep based on the original N7 Shirt design from Bioware.N7 Shirt Mod!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I used the naked body mesh from Maleshep and Femshep for the shirt and added sleeves, I didn't like how it looks without sleeves because the shirt is "painted" on the body and sleeves adds some depth to the shirt.
Some of you told me that I should upload this so I'll upload the files in one day or two after fix some issues with the mesh . And now after this mod I'm going to finish the Modded Formal Outfit finally!.
Need to fix before the release:
- Some clipping on the neck in both versions.
- Adjust the normal map.
- Some clipping on the sleeves in both versions.

Epic Resources List - How to Get Awesome at ArtI often get asked how to get better at drawing and painting. While the main answer is practice there are a lot of fantastic resources that will make the journey far easier; below is a list of the ones I have personally found most useful. Some are free and some are paid, if you want the paid ones please actually buy them and support the hard-working artists that spend their valuable time providing quality education.Epic Resources List - How to Get Awesome at Art4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Also this is enough material to last you for, literally, years, so get one at a time, study it in detail, then once you're thoroughly finished move on to the next one. Reading a book or watching a dvd doesn't make you better. What makes you better is ingesting the information slowly, pondering and truly understanding it, and then applying it with diligent practice over a long period of time.
So without further ado, here is my...

First of all, I want to apologize for not responding to you guys. I get piles of comments and notes on this account.
I know I've been getting many questions via PM and notes on DA and Facebook, but I haven't been able to answer them all. I do read them so keep commenting and sending notes!
I would like to have the opportunity for all to ask me common questions about me or anything art and game related here. I'll look through the comments and update this Journal Entry with new Q&A.
Only request is that you ask some relevant questions and not something too personal and inappropriate.
With that said, ask away!
1. What type of Program do you use? What tablet do you use?I use Adobe Photoshop CS5. I have tried couple other programs like SAI, Alias Sketchbook Pro, and Painter X, but photoshop has all the tools I need to create art.I have Wacom Intuos 5 and Wacome Cintiq 22UX mounted on ergotron arm.

I've been busy speeding up the schedule so I can release my next webcomic, Fisheye Placebo as soon as possible. The current release date is set to early 2013.
That means Knite had to slow down a bit since it's difficult to work on 2 projects at once. However, I still aim to update Knite ch5 beta strips around once a week. You may have noticed that in the past, I posted Knite in full chapter flash format, but I really enjoyed posting beta pages on my :iconknites: account since this allowed more audience interaction. The problem was switching between accounts was too much pain, and updating several pages a day flooded people's accounts. In the end, I decided to post strips on this account instead. The strips will only be posted once a week so if you don't want to be spoiled, just ignore the strips

Paranoia and a sense of impending doom.
The "party game" I just picked up should do the trick.
Each player gets a Nerf gun, the name of a target and the location in the house where they have to shoot them at some point over the course of the evening.
Nothing says "Christmas" like an assassination contract.
.....yes. I have been playing Hitman too long.
Ascension 1, Sec 1 "Tillie, are you insane?" I demanded. "The entire cave just about fell down on top of us! We can't go any fartherówe need to get out."Ascension 1, Sec 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
"No way, Zander," Tillie answered with an anticipatory grin. "Something caused that tremor, and I want to find out what."
"Til, this is a bad idea," I growled.
"Loosen up, Zander," she laughed, then started walking farther into the dark tunnel.
"Do I never get a say in anything?" I sighed to myself, before following her down the dank, musty passageway.
Moon elves, like myself, could see pretty well in the dark, so I had an idea of where I was going. I could just see the end of the tunnel, where it widened into what was probably a large antechamber. We'd been here before, and I knew that the only thing in that antechamber was a tall marble statue of an old queen that had a red gemstone embedded in its forehead.
If you want to do art...Then DO it already!I've been asked by a lot of aspiring artists how I got into 3d and game art in general. So, I've decided to share my experience and what I've learned to hopefully give you guys some good advice.If you want to do art...Then DO it already!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, I've always been a fan of video games. I used to go to my neighbors house and play Super Mario Land and Tetris on their Gameboy then go home to play more on my SNES. As I got older, the game that really stuck to me was Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I loved everything about it, and it's what really got me to draw.
I went to a small community college in fall 2008 to start a degree in Graphic Design. In high school I went through a big phase of designing icons for Live Journal and my parents convinced me it would be the safest route for a career. By the end of the first semester, I had been with my boyfriend Cody for a few months and observed what he did in his 3D Animation major. Since I loved games, I decided it would make a more enjoyable career path. I switched majors and

:iconvladgheneli: is the current featured artist of this group and we thought it'd be a great idea to ask Vlad to give us an insight into his process.
Vlad also shared with us his latest piece and talks us through his inspirations and how this piece came about.
We really hope you take something away from this feature and work hard on your skills to be featured here one day.
Please introduce yourself to the group?
My name is Vlad Gheneli and I'm a 25 year old concept artist based in Bucharest, Romania.
Your area of interest?
I am focusing on sci-fi and fantasy environments, sometimes vehicles too.
I've been drawing since forever, but I got really serious about this a couple of years ago, when I bought a graphic tablet and decided to go digital. I've studied hard, followed a lot of artists, Daniel Dociu being the one that inspires me the most. Right now I'm pretty satisfied with how my paintin

So often, I get people asking for my secrets, praying to some god to give them what I have, asking me for my Photoshop brushes, joking that I must have sold my soul to Satan, that I must be cheating somehow, asking what programs I use in hopes that there is some magic "art button."
I'm sorry but...... No.
There are no secrets. No god and no devil had anything to do with it. There are no magic Photoshop brushes. There is no magic art button. There are no magic programs that will do the work for you. You can get Poser- some of the images that come out of it are lovely and if that makes you happy, fine. But if you want to do more than play with 3D paper dolls, to make your own art, to realize the wildest imaginings of your dreams exactly how you see them....
THERE. ARE. NO. SHORTCUTS.
Do you know how I got here?
Lots of it. Maybe I have some inborn talent? I don't know. But really, it's mostly WORK. You want to get good at something? Want it more tha

Creativity aint wiredCreativity, where does it come from, where it goes? Most of the time people ask me how can i be more creative, how and i be more unique on my topics? Thats a hard question, imean daily life its were creation truly is, not online. Been talking with other friends ona tablet, talking about how their creative process works, acouple of beers, laughs, argues, intriguing, different point of views like all humans in all topics, but we all agreed that first, you need to think in the concept you want to do then search for reference tools, not the other way around.Creativity aint wired2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
