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!3 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 The members have also withdrawn from numerous activities that were scheduled for them.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,

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.
The blending of the different elements is the m

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).
Now I found this http://www.mediafire.com/?8cnc6v7z7w4e647 on a chinese board http://bbs.themex.net/forumdisplay.php?f=88 (yeah yeah yeah, at least with google translate I could read something )
Works awesome and you can switch language, still a pretty shitty translation, but great tools to create configs and it runs as a service.

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

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
I hope you guys enjoy the website as much as I enjoyed making it, have a grea

LITESTEP!I HAVE FOUND YOU AGAIN IN THIS 64-BIT JUNGLE!!!!!!!! Oh how content I am to have litestep working on Win7.LITESTEP!5 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 .

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

Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!‘Twas the night before Christmas on DeviantArt,Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!8 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Not a paintbrush was stirring, and creators took heart.
The artists scrolled through Daily Deviations with care
Knowing kindred warm-fuzzies soon would be there.
Deviants were all swiping, all snug on their phones
While visions of inspiration across all time zones
Were zapped to their smart device, quick as can be,
At the tap of a button in a +Fav’ing spree!
When across the Interwebs there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to the Comments to see what was the matter,
“I’m bored,” the Journal wrote, “I’m on a long trip, too.
I don’t have my laptop, and there’s nothing to do.”
I cracked all my knuckles, settled down in my chair,
Then descended upon the keyboard and wrote with a flair:
“Dear Friend, did you not get DA’s early present?
We now have an app, and it won’t cost you one cent!
“On, Watch Feed! On, Browse! On, Explore! On, Today!

Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen?Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen?3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Oct 17, 2012 by techgnotic
Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
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
