We're sponsoring Artists' Alley 2012!
We're headed to Comic-Con International:
San Diego to sponsor Artists' Alley!
We Love Artists' Alley
We're back at Comic-Con!
Last year, our sponsorship of Artists' Alley was a huge success. We were able to provide a more comfortable environment for the artists, display their art on huge screens over the Alley, and let people attending the convention draw with deviantART muro on fantastic digital screens. We plan to do this and more in 2012 as we take on the great pleasure of sponsoring Artists' Alley at San Diego Comic-C
Displacement MappingSickleYield writes wonderful little journals where she explains things to the 3D world and tells stuff she has just learned to the people who watch her. I love that she does that, so why shouldn´t I try to do the same... because this is how we all grow, yes? Learning from each other is very important and I myself had wonderful teachers.

Here is a little crash course about displacement mapping or better - how those are made and set up in Photoshop / Gimp and DAZ.
In Daz Studio, displacement maps work pretty much like bump maps. Light areas render as positive while dark areas render as negative. To make a map for veins on arms, for example, I load the limbs texture into Photoshop as a guide layer, create a transparent layer above it, and simply airbrush the veins (white) using the texture as a guide. Some textures have veins that are visible and very easy to follow, while others do not and you just have to kinda wing it. It always helps to look at photos of very defined
What I Turn To When My Brain Goes 'Blurgh'I really want to share with everyone the artists and places I often turn to when I'm feeling low on inspiration. Right before I begin a painting I will always browse through my catalogue of inspiration for a kind of... artistic boost before I begin.What I Turn To When My Brain Goes 'Blurgh'2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Firstly, my main source of inspiration does genuinely spring from my imagination. I've been drawing since I was about six-years-old and I always have a seed of an idea singing to me from some part of my brain. The need to breathe life into that little idea is a terrible itch, but a gratifying one.
Most of my pictures are inspired by women. Obviously. I love female anatomy, so my ideas will always start with an idea for a pose. The hair is my favourite part and that often completes the image in my mind - I love creating the flow and shapes. Colour comes next, often inspired by the environment and season I picture the subject in. The image grows from there.
But of course I am inspired by what I see around me. It's fair to say that prett

DeviantART Role ModelsAll of us on DeviantART have special people in our lives that we especially look up to. Whether it is a family member, or close friend and confidant. Perhaps it is a person we laugh with from time to time who may not even realize how much they have impacted us. Or, maybe it is someone who has touched our life in such a tremendous way that it is forever changed. Sometimes, we forget to tell or show them how important they are to us. Oftentimes, those unspoken moments between loved ones matter most and a little positivity goes quite a long way. So, what better time than right now to take a moment or two to tell someone else how much they mean to you?DeviantART Role Models3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Sipping tea with your Muse Only by fostering a facility with the vocabulary of your artistic medium of choice, can you begin to really free yourself to be open to being creative with it.Sipping tea with your Muse8 months ago in Personal More Like This
The size of that vocabulary is another matter, and that’s about growth, improvement and development. These are important as well, and intricately linked to creativity, in parallel (more on that in a future article). But first let’s talk simply about the genesis aspect of art.
Remember when you were in high school, doodling in the margins of your notebooks? Ballpoint pen and edges of blue-lined notebooks, with half an ear listening to the lesson of the day? There was a familiarity in that setting, and ease that you moved through when you sketched these throwaway doodles. Every once in a while you’d accidentally make one that you’d really like, and you’d save that scrap of paper with notes on American History melding into the lines of a drawing of your D&D charac

Vampyratekitty for helping me choose my dress and jacket, as soon as you show3ed me that dress i just had to get it, it was great, though needed to be repaired by the mother-in-law a few times as it is a heavy dress and the straps were not too supportive. Even getting into the wedding car on the morning it tore a little again making me panic for a bit but it made it through the day.

MetamorphosisMonths back, I wrote a comic about Jane Fitzpatrick's backstory (which is technically completely 'original,' as Jane and her background are totally separated from any Avatar characters or elements) which was accepted to be included in Grayhaven Comics' upcoming project, 'You Are Alone.' The project's Kickstarter was successful, and so this comic that I wrote and DoodleBuggy did a brilliant job bringing to life is supposed to be published later this year. You Are Not Alone will be: "A 200+ page anthology of hope with tales of overcoming bullying, homophobia, racism, depression and abuse." You can find more information about it here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1429812861/you-are-not-alone-1Metamorphosis2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The comic is finally done! And you can read it here:
It is a standalone piece written for elementary/high school students, but it also serves a small slice of backstory for Jane's character.

High heels in female armor design.STOP IT D:!High heels in female armor design.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seriously. I mean, I'm pretty apt at walking on high heels. I do it quite regularly and I can keep it up for a long time. I agree it makes a woman taller, the stance more feminine and it makes the legs look longer. All of those are qualities to do with appearance, they are in no way practical and never will be. In fact, they completely defeat the purpose of armor which is to increase survivability and/or support the girl in the role she plays, which, unless it's simply "to look pretty", will NEVER need high heels.
Sorry about that. I'm just a bit tired of seeing epic armor designs that really appeal to me, only to have them completely destroyed with a pair of heels that pretty much make the foot stand vertical. >>
