How to Handle and Provide CritiquesDuring my short hiatus, I didnt leave dA completely. I just left my inbox and main page. Instead, I spent my spare time diving deeper into dA community, browsing through news articles, random groups, and various journals, until I accidentally stumbled upon this: You cant avoid criticism. http://news.deviantart.com/article/153114/How to Handle and Provide Critiques3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Criticism has been a big issue for many artists, including me. Some take it for granted, others throw a hissy fit. So, how can we provide and handle critiques without making a big fuss?
For Critic: HOW TO PROVIDE HELPFUL CRITIQUE
Dont criticize people who explicitly state they dont need critiques.
But they wont go far in art industry with that attitude!
Those people may do not even wish to be an artist. They just draw for fun. Theres no point of spending your precious time analyzing ones picture and writing a critique if that person doe

Bought a character or design?Update: I find it mildly disturbing that there are artists that SELL you the rights to something and ask you NOT to resell it AT ALL(even the same price or less), what the hell? Something similar would be paying $50,000 for a car and it's illegal to resell it, so you're just stuck with it when you don't want it anymore OR you can give it back to the dealership (or in this case, artist) for free? I see it as stealing, selfish of you to ask, and bullshit.Bought a character or design?10 months ago in Personal More Like This

PE: Semi-Abstract ArtIn this article I'd like to explore "semi-abstract art" a little.PE: Semi-Abstract Art1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
We should probably look at definitions of "abstract art" first, before we try to see what "semi-abstract art" could be.
Abstract art definitions:
"Abstract art seeks to break away from traditional representation of physical objects. It explores the relationships of forms and colors, whereas more traditional art represents the world in recognizable images." (dictionary.com)
"Drawings/Paintings focusing on the formal, non-representational aspect of imagery, emphasizing lines, colors, generalized or geometrical forms." (dA gallery description)
What could "semi-abstract" art be then?
The term "semi-abstract" itself suggests that this art style is not quite abstract, but something in between. In between of what? Abstract and realis

9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS1. UNIVERSALITY - Acrylic are probably the most versatile of paints. You can thin them with water and use as watercolor (they will remain permanent upon drying, unlike watercolor), apply them in full strength, create textures.9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. COMBINABLE - This medium is very suitable to be combined with anything you wish - watercolor, ink, pencils, oils... Free your imagination and experiment!
3. NUMEROUS SUITABLE SURFACES - Acrylics can be used on paper, canvas, wood, metal and many more surfaces (this is true, even though they don't adhere towards some surfaces as promptly as oils). This is a great advantage, when you get used to this medium, you can paint at whatever material you've got available.
4. DON'T STINK - That's right, all of you that have experienced headaches caused by oil paint might just appreciate an acrylic vacation!
5. FAST DRYING TIME - Composition doesn't seem right after you put down your first layer? This is not a problem, wait half an hour

The concept of this piece came to me after messing around with gold-colored aluminum foil worn over my teeth while dressed up in costume, giving the camera a growling look. Looking at the photo taken, I felt as if I had just become one of the many wacky characters I draw so often. The overall feeling was worth exploring in a drawing. Showing your teeth is a powerful and primal reaction, but rather than pimping out my grill, I thought it would be interesting to wear that look on a shirt or hoodie.
I have a healthy fear of creatures in nature that could eat me live, so this idea of giant teeth worn across the chest seemed empowering. Grizzlies, wolves, wild dogs, zombies

Project Educate: User Friendly Journal SkinningThis article is written for fellow CSS coders who already have basic+ knowledge of deviantART journal codes. This is not a beginner's tutorial.Project Educate: User Friendly Journal Skinning2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
User Friendly Journal Skin Coding
I've been making journal skins on DeviantART since 2010, I'd dabbled in CSS before, but never for other people. I know what my codes are and how to use them to their full potential and often, just code on the fly when I want something to do something. But making free and commission skins here showed me that I needed to make them as easy to use as they are pretty. And really, who wants to type in a lot of extra HTML when they go to write a journal? It is easy enough to access the artist's comments.
But even then, copy & paste, memorize that.... It can be a lot to deal with if you do not know CSS and HTML. Which is the reason most people get someone else's skin design in the firs
Where do you place value?I've been noticing a trend in a lot of Christians feeling like they need to defend themselves. So I'm going to share some things that have helped me with this.Where do you place value?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An easy way to deal with this is to put more value on what God says about you than you put on what other people say about you. Which do you hold in higher regard? Does what other people think and say about you dominate your outlook? Or do you hold what God says in a higher esteem? It's good to value and respect other people. Even if someone is wrong about something, that person is still valuable. They are valuable to God, and so they should be valuable to you. But that doesn't mean you need to value that person's words or opinion, especially if they are wrong about something. If you only put value on what God says, no accusations or insults from others should affect you. For this to be effective, you need to know what God says. The bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is about Jesus and His finished work. Jesus is God's word. If i

Removing white background from lines
Every time i scan a drawing i have to set it on multiply to get rid of the white background that is paper. So i googled for a solution and i saw this website: http://www.tomrichmond.com/blog/2008/06/06/new-photoshop-line-art-trick/
You will need photoshop for this!!
The short version:
1. Scan line art as greyscale image, or covert it to such
2. Create a new blank layer and name it Inks
3. Go to the Channels palette and there is only one channel called Grey
4. At the bottom of the channels palette, click on the dashed circle icon entitled Load channel as selection
5. In Select drop down menu select Inverse
6. Go to your Inks layer
7. Press D on your keyboard to reset the swatches to full black in active color

I've already made my stand on that issue clear with a simple "Bollocks", but there is another aspect of the Orwellian nightmare that may be infiltrating public transport: that of being bombarded by information, whether you want it or not.
Now THAT is something to be legitimately concerned about.
Unsurprisingly, it's something birthed by Rupert "Evil F**k" Murdoch's empire, who I'm pretty sure goes into work each day and asks the question "How do we kill Superman?"
