Invitation to Curate
Gallery by Mumtazzaidi
Someone once said that the decision of where to direct one’s eyes is the most important decision in photography.
That could apply to all art. Throughout the course of a day, we are exposed to thousands of pieces of content. How do we discern what is important, what is pleasing and relevant? How do we present what matters to us, and focus attention on those aspects that matter?
Curation is more than packaging

Syn's Dithering TutorialWhat is dithering?Syn's Dithering Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Dithering is a pixel art process used to blend blocks of colour together or help apply a texture to a pixelled surface. Within emoticons it is most commonly used when making pixelled backgrounds, however it can be used in a number of other areas, e.g. massive emote bases, pixel objects etc. In this tutorial, we will focus on how 2 colours can be blended with dithering.
To break dithering down into simple terms, it is achieved by simply taking the colours from the two blocks of colour and placing individual pixels of each on the opposite side. This creates a region where the two colours merge together to create a more blended colour transition instead of a clear line between the two.
Dithering can seem like a complex process, but it's really not. Once you get the basic idea and technique, it's just all about practice and over time you'll learn how to apply it to a number of different situations. There are many dithering styles which can be
Are you kidding me???Are you effing kidding me?? Not to say my work is the most amazing stuff out there but my works have been denied access from several groups as submitting my works!

As you can see I have gone back to the basics of the journal skin. It is to show my great disappointing feelings here at DA recently.
My first heartache is this I have seen so very many artists on here flourish and come into their own, adapt their own styles, learn amazing techniques, keep on coming up with new and creative pieces, And so many of them go unnoticed, without acolytes and with a mild fan base.
Mean time I have seen people taken basic stock add a layer of texture or two over it and filter the hell out of it and it goes with the highest praise, where is the ethics in this? Claiming a piece is painted when it is clearly not. it is just extreme

Please be careful WHAT you SELL for POINTS!Dear members,Please be careful WHAT you SELL for POINTS!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
as we all know this delicious new function has been enabled by DeviantART recently which allows you to sell content for points and keep the amazing amount of 80% of your share.
Overall this is a nice new function and we can't wait to see what you will do with it. We just want to warn you to be careful about one certain thing:
You should not sell high res files of your work for a small amount of points.
The few dimes people will spare by not having to pay shipping costs can do you badly.
There are a lot of companies, that take your dear work and print it on T- Shirts, books, posters and what not.
And in the past those companies at least had to put the efford into taking your art and retouching it. But shall you think about selling high res files for a small amount of points, greedy companies as that will have it even easier to take your art, distribute it big, and give you nothing of your share!

PE Photomanip: More on dark manipulationHi, everyone!PE Photomanip: More on dark manipulation3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
GUESS WHAT!!! You get a bonus blog today because . . . intano is in the house!!
Tugba took some time out of her very busy schedule to chat with me about dark photomanipulation and photomanipulation in general. These questions are similar to those that the lovely MarcelaBolivar answered in our dark photomanipulation interview from earlier in the series (click here). It is always useful to have more perspectives and ideas regarding dark art and its operational definition, and we are really grateful to both of these brilliant artists for sharing their wisdom with us.

???ANIMAL RACIONAL - ANIMAL IRRACIONAL??????ANIMAL RACIONAL - ANIMAL IRRACIONAL???3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Rational animal is a classical definition of humanity. Aristotle states that the human being has a rational principle, on top of the nutritive life shared with plants, and the instinctual life shared with other animals, i.e. the ability to carry out rationally formulated projects.
That capacity for deliberative imagination was equally singled out as man's defining feature. While seen by Aristotle as a universal human feature, the definition applied to wise and foolish alike, and did not in any way imply necessarily the making of rational choices, as opposed to the ability to make them.
As human beings, we like to believe that we are reliably rational and logical. Yet, throughout history, we have repeatedly engaged in behaviours that are contrary to our best interests, as evidenced by varying degrees of conflict, violence, and warfare. We are not the logical creature we idealize ourselves to be. As a point of comparison, recent
Premium Content and how I feel about making moneyHalloPremium Content and how I feel about making money3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's a new feature called premium content that allows users to make file downloads available for a charge. This seems to be something with a vast range of different possibilities that range from quite nice to to quite lame. Of course we are all always against commercialization and sell-outs and everything and don't want things to change but there are some interesting options here.
Obviously everyone is going to know whether or not this is something he or she could use and how much sense it's going to make for what you do specifically but there's two points I want to adress.
I always thought it was lame when people sell stuff like brushes or psd files. This is probably just my personal opinion and many will certainly disagree for valid reasons, but I think, if you make some brushes, and you ask money for something as tiny as that, you are lame. Sorry. Actually, the point here is not that it will kill someone to pay like one buck for something tiny, it's just that it change

Today I am going to tackle a subject that all photo manipulation artists should pay attention to. (Yes, this means you!) It is my hope that this article will save you the headache and trouble of getting a submission declined, having to delete your work, or worse; be sued by someone because of it.
Why Properly Crediting Stock Is Important
All artists know that the secret to a great manip is finding stock that is just right for the theme you are trying to convey. On there are literally thousands of fantastic high quality images that are absolutely free. Some of these images are even created by and featuring professional models and photographers. You could pay a lot of money for the rights to use the type of stock resources in your art that are found here free of charge. This is part of why is unique and an amazing place for artists to frequent.
