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.

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

Welcome to Photomanipulation Month!Greetings!Welcome to Photomanipulation Month!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Yes, you read that right: Photomanip MONTH!
When I first came on board as the Community Volunteer for Photomanipulation, I wanted to have a photomanipulation workshop month, or a "boot camp," to help our community members hone their skills and to help people from outside the community learn more about what we do. Kaz-D had the brilliant idea of turning it into a Photomanipulation Month with Project Educate! So, here we are!
This month will be filled with contests and challenges, games and activities, and lots of chances to win fabulous prizes! We hope everyone will learn something along the way as well.
About this month
We see this month as an opportunity for all of us to share what we know and build a stronger community. We had originally conceived of this month as "Advanced Photomanipulation Month," but we figured that might be exclusive to a great portion of our community.

There are a few people here on DA i would really like to thank help make my day extra special.
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.

Checking in, and a small featureHi everyone. I just felt like writing to say that I am still around. I know it's probably unnecessary, since I think I've been inactive longer than this before, but I thought I'd do it anyway. I haven't been feeling very well, and I've been so tired for the past couple of weeks due to inability to sleep that I can barely stay focused enough to draw. Add a change of medication to that, and trying to make art has lately been like banging my head against a wall, for all the good it does. I've finally got something started recently though, so perhaps I may have something to post before long.Checking in, and a small feature11 months ago in Personal More Like This

PE: Walkthroughs, an alternative way to learnPE: Walkthroughs, an alternative way to learn3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Walkthroughs, alongside tutorials, are always an excellent way to learn. It's really helpful to get educated through a tutorial which tells exactly what to do in a detailed way step by step. However at times what is even more helpful is to actually see the artist in action, there are things you need to see get done by yourself and here is where walkthroughs come into play.
There's always something fascinating about seeing the different stages of the creation process of a piece, and you can always learn from the artists and adapt part of said process to your own.
Besides showing part of this process through images which show the different stages of a piece, and

So I've been thinking about making some interesting offers commission-wise. Of course, I could just continue to do commissions as I do them now and I'm enjoying that, but once I finish my current list I would like to do something special for a while, or offer a special as an extra. I could use your help to perfect some basic ideas I've got. If you think they're rubbish don't hesitate to tell me either, heh. Mostly though I'd just like to hear what you think of them and if you think something would make them better or more interesting, please share.
• 25 full-color busts - $75-$100 each.
Pro: Fun portrait and color exercise. Not too big so it doesn't get boring.
Con: Possibly too expensive, but I can't really sink below $75.
• 50 full-body sketches - $25 each.
Pro: Quick, good gesture exercise, doesn't get boring if enough variety in character is offered.
Con: Need to do many for it to be really profitable, could get too much.
