PhotoManipulation: Lighting TechniquesVISUAL TRICKERYPhotoManipulation: Lighting Techniques5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
One of the great joys of PhotoManipulation is the act of using photographic images and hand-painted elements to fabricate realities. What makes this new art-form so potent is the fact that you can create a sense of realism that in my opinion cant really be matched by other mediums. To attain the level where you can articulate your ideas into photorealistic realities takes a fair amount of practice, but fortunately there are many resources that can assist you get there much much faster than trial and error alone.
When I really started to focus on lighting in my work, the quality of my pieces made a monumental jump. I dont profess to be a lighting expert, this article collates useful information and resources that have helped me in my progression, and can hopefully help you as well. This article is going to be very 'wordy' and may be more appealing to the intermediate / advanced user; however, I would recommend practitioners of all levels to check out the
LITESTEP!I HAVE FOUND YOU AGAIN IN THIS 64-BIT JUNGLE!!!!!!!! Oh how content I am to have litestep working on Win7.LITESTEP!6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Turns out all you really need to do is install LOSI 0.45 (or whatev the recent one is...) and then drag and drop the executable and .dll file in the 0.25 alpha build into the litestep directory. THEN (this is what I think was causing my woes) you need to download a little .exe file called setshell64: http://lsp.litestep.info/index.php?page=index;item=145
Voila! LS is working super now . Although I miss the windows 7 superbar and the fancy desktop fade (although if you get jdesk-0.75, you still get changing desktops, just not with the fancy fade effect).
I'm just happy that LS is working. Ahhhhhh I haven't had this much fun in a looooong time .
PSD TIPSPSD colorations can be a pain in the ass if you don't use them right. Not all images will fit all colorations. And sometimes you don't get the desired results. So how, the hell, are you supposed to know which PSD works for your image?PSD TIPS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The good news, there are things you can do to get that pain in the ass out. There are things you can do to get the best results possible, and get the best potential out of the coloration. So I put together this list of tips for all PSD coloration users who want better results.
#1 – Use high quality images. Sounds obvious, but it makes a real difference.
#2 – Add a little depth by duplicating the image twice, set the top one to Multiply, and the middle one to Screen. If needed, add more of these layers, and play with the Opacity and Fill.
#3 – Duplicate the image and set the top one to Soft Light. You could also combine that layer with a Gaussian Blur effect (set to about 2.4 - 2.7) and also a S
Frequently Asked QuestionsI get asked many questions and it can be hard for me to answer them all, so I have compiled a list of questions which I'm often asked in the hope it is of interest to some of youFrequently Asked Questions3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Where did you learn?
I've taught myself. My Secondary (High) School art teacher told me 'cartoon are not art' and so I had no interest in perusing 'art' classes any further. At about 13 I began to draw every day, less studying, more drawing what came to mind, creating characters and worlds and getting my thoughts and feeling onto paper.
I joined deviantART at 15, and the feedback and critique I've gained through sharing my art online has helped a lot in my improvement. I wasn't born with any 'gift', unless you count functioning hands, I learned through practice. My early drawings are just as bad as everyone elses (I keep them as proof) I a
Looking for color themes/palettes?Wuzzup everybody!Looking for color themes/palettes?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Just a quick note here, for those that sometimes have problems finding the right color palette/theme for their artwork or design, you can always check out my page at Adobe Kuler . Usually I make them at work as part of the creative process so all of them had already been used in websites, posters, ads and such.. Anyway I hope some of you will find this useful and it'll help you a bit next time you find yourself having a creative block as far as colors go
Now I get back to work, See y'all soon!

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem

Of Angels and Demons Vol. 1
“Hush, my friends. Let me tell you of those gods whose lore has left our lands, of the long–dead songs of angels and demons; let your hearts brave the ill–luck of broken vows and breathe the influx of borrowed spells. Walk with me on the winds of a victory of kings, and tell me now: whose flock will be crushed under the blow of defeat? Will you bathe in the white solace of the banners of salvation, or burn in the fiery fire of the warriors of damnation?”

Support Block B!I'm sure all you BBCs have heard about the recent - sort of - events in Thailand. For those that haven't, long story short, there was a misunderstanding in Block B's conduct during an interview in Thailand after the disasters there and right now, they are really suffering for it.Support Block B!4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Currently, P.O is in hospital due to stress of the situation and is suffering from stress-induced schizophrenia, the cause being the cyber-bullying due to the events that have taken place.
Zico also shaved all his hair off in a sign of remorse and the entire group have released multiple apologies to the public - through their StarCall accounts and an official video apology. The members have also withdrawn from numerous activities that were scheduled for them.
The point of controversy stems from when Kyung asked Zico how much money he had with him, which was the equivalent of $7. Many interpreted it as 'How much money would you donate?'. Block B had in fact already donated to the Thailand cause before arriving,

I don't know about you, but I was always sick of the default windows font rendering, that's why I used GDI++ with Windows XP and GDIpp with Win7, until a few months ago GDIpp worked great, but then there where a lot of compatibility issues (Google Chrome/Firefox).

PHOTOMANIPULATION- What constitutes good versus poor aspects of photomanipulation for the group.</i>
As it is defined in our blog ‘Gallery Folders Explained’, a Photomanipulation is an image that consists of elements from two or more photos that have been skilfully blended together. Thus, a photo that has only been altered by the use of a filter does not qualify as photomanipulation, but as photo enhancing.
Here we are giving you a list of the technical aspects that we take into account when we review your photomanipulation submissions. We hope this will be helpful for you beginners and that, likewise, the more experienced photomanipulators will find it useful.

So after hours and hours of work, my website is finally up and running.
I did not add all of my resources (yet) because that would have probably taken me an extra week.
I do plan on adding them in the future though and I also have some new stuff that I will post either tomorrow or later this week.
I appreciate the feedback you guys have given me over the last few years, and I probably would not be making resources today if it wasn't for that, so thank you! I do feel that it is time to move on to something else now, it has been fun.
I will update you guys every now and then on what new stuff I have posted, but if you want to stay up to date I would suggest to keep an eye out on my website.
Here is the link to my website, go visit it and tell me what you thought of it.
I love reading messages on my tagboard so go there and leave a comment (if you want, of course) <3
