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

So I did this contest last year and it was so successful that I just had to do it again. Though I have bumped the winning prize up a bit to $40 this time or 3,200 . and I understand that people usually have time frame issues, so that is why this contest will not end until June 15th.

Important! Project wedding presentEdit:Important! Project wedding present3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The deadline ist June 5th!
Please help me guys! I've only got photos from about ten people so far.
Please read this journal, because this is very important to me.
My sister will get married in June this year. I love her dearly and I want to make a very special present for her wedding day:
Congratulations from all over the world!
So my big request to all of you is this:
Get a sheet of paper, write "Congratulations on your wedding Janina and Philipp!" (in your mother language) on it, go outside and take a photo of it with some sights of your hometown in the background! (If possible, please add the name of your country + city!)
So for example: "Congratulations on your wedding Janina and Philipp, from London in England!" or "Herzlichen Glückwunsch zur Hochzeit Janina und Philipp, aus Hamburg in Deutschland!"
You can take a photo of your hand holding the paper or you can stick it somewhere or let a plushie hold it. Be creative!

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
