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

Want to know if your work was stolen?I'm sure a lot of you know this already, but for those who don't, with Google you can trace back your pictures of the web. This is pretty scary as I found some of my works used a printed book cover, an electronic book cover on Amazon, cd covers, used on Youtube as cover images for music and on various other websites. Most of the time, copyrights and/or watermarks were removed, the images altered, etc. Well if you don't know how to look for your images, here's the link that's explain how on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t99BfDnBZcI . Thanks to :iconmaliciarosenoire: who sent me the link in the past. To look for your pictures, you need the link of your work or you can upload your image directly to Google. To get the link of your image, go to your deviation's page, right click on the image and select properties (on PC at least.. not sure on Macintosh, I think it's "Get Info" instead of Properties), and copy the link that ends with the .jpg extension.

Exercise 18: Painterly StyleTHIS WEEK's EXERCISE POST : THE FULL POST AND DETAILSExercise 18: Painterly Style6 months ago in Personal More Like This
The “painterly style” has been a highly requested tutorial subject matter due to it’s increasing popularity to digital artists. Not sure what this style is referring to? Check out the Painterly Style Reference Board. The style has become even more popular from games that focus heavily on this art style such as Bastion or to digital artists like Purplekecleon, who we Interviewed last year. It has a bold and fresh look that relies on color and working with balancing the different hues to create value. The style is recognizable by 3 different factors: use of color shifting, visible brushstrokes, and fantastical ligh

The contest ends on Friday (8th November) night 12 PM
Screenshot like self drawn illustrations like the ones above are the topic of this new Game-Art-HQ art contest
Due to other projects like Link's Blacklist being ongoing now and artists being working on it or the Final Fantasy tribute, this contest starts right now and endures till wednesday the 6th November
Recreating a screenshot with the own artstyle as seen in the megaman fanarts by Pertheseus and the Street Fighter III one above is something complicated and needs time and creativity, i guess that not only the results can be some great looking and unusual illustrations of video games, but also be a true challenge for participating artists.
rules: 1 entry per artist, no strong violence, no nudity, no fetish stuff, its up to you what kind of a screenshot you use as reference and also which game is totally your choice. If

So as you all know I've been sick with the flu, today was the first day after almost a week I ran through all my messages and went through all the art from all my wonderful friends and DA being the great site that it is, let me look into all of them beautiful art made by them.
But to them all and to leave a comment now that is a different story, not only the click and drag isn't working at all, so I need to each one individually to it's proper folder, more then half my comments weren't accepted because it keeps flagging them as spam....Seriously? Spam? So I can't comment a big amount of art from my friends? Since when that happens? Second time this happens to me, so I just and clean because it's impossible for me to go through 1k or more of deviations and I'm not even looking at groups anymore, with great shame I must say.
So DA made my job a lot harder after a week away from being sick, thank you so much......

Hey guys! I've been seeing a lot of point giveaways on deviantART, and so I thought I might do my own. This is apart of my 'Giving Back' campaign that I am trying to launch on my profile.
Anyway, I love deviantART's point system for a number of reasons.
One of my favorite aspects of this system is that it encourages young artists to become entrepreneurs. Younger artists who may not be able to set up a paypal account or deal with other forms of online payment just yet, can take safety in the dA points system. They can learn how to price their work, deal with clients, a
