Entries will be accepted until DEC 10 @ 11:59 PST!~ :3
ok!! thanks for your entries!! I will determine the winners later dec 11-13 there are a lot of great stories, I will read them over and see which ones would translate well into a comic!
Hi guys, I'm not sure how popular this idea may be, but I bet some of you guys like to write stories, right?
I'm not a very good writer myself, so I was wondering if you could flex your writing muscles!
This contest will let you try and write a short story (approx. 500-1500 words) about any of my OCs. +/- 200 words from the min-max is ok, but pushing it. ^^
(you may enter more than one story but can only win one prize)
here is my gallery of OCs. Their descriptions are in the deviations.
I only have some simple descriptions for them, though some have more intensive descriptions and background to them.
These stories can be little adventures tha

Let's Learn Portraiture: Natural LightingWelcome to the second installment of Let's Learn Portraiture! The previous installment was about Model Communication. For this installment, we will be tackling a topic for those photographers who enjoy taking portraits outdoors.Let's Learn Portraiture: Natural Lighting1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Portraiture with Natural Lighting
1.) Avoid Direct Sunlight
While it can really bring out the color of the eyes and make them pop, having your model stare into the sun should never be on the agenda. Not only is it exceedingly uncomfortable for your model, but it casts very harsh shadows. In most cases, you want to position your model with the sun behind them, or to the side.This will illuminate the hair and offer a nice glow. The issue then is that the subject's face may be too dark (underexposed). To solve this, you can bounce some light back into th

Let's Learn Portraiture: Model CommunicationIn an effort to further give back to the community, I have decided to kick off a series of informative articles called 'Let's Learn Portraiture.' The goal will be to cover topics related to people and portrait photography. To start, we will cover a topic suggested by ThomasJergelLet's Learn Portraiture: Model Communication1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Communicating With Your Model
Get to Know Your Subject
Different photographers take different approaches to how they interact with their models, but I've always taken a personal approach. Learning about your subject's interests can not only make them more comfortable, but it can also lead to more striking images that follow along with those interests. Communication is key when it comes to interacting with your model, and building a quick rapport is important in order to solidify that.
When working with amateur models who may not be familiar with posing for the camera, you may often find that they will resort to e
Challenge 4: Yellow - TOP 5Dear all friends,Challenge 4: Yellow - TOP 52 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sorry for late result but we have more entries this time, and even more amazing works .
With a lot of entries therefore it took me while to choose top 5. This time, so many good entries with great concepts. It's really hard for me to pick 5 only.
I don't pick the top 5 base on drawing skills only but also the concept of their entries. But there were more than 20 entries I want to pick as winners :C. But don't worry, we will have more challenges in future.
I think there are too many good entries, top 5 are not enough actually. We call it top 5 but actually I think there are at least top 20 or more, since this time, so so many lovely entries . How about giving out top 10 in next challenge (when we have enough point again, yes). People will get 100 points each, less points but more people who will get it. How do you think about it? Because I think actually this is not a contest, it's just a little challenge for fun and a reason to draw more, practice mo

Don't ART for free ...Note written under the influence of several recent situations ...Don't ART for free ...10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I understand that not everyone can/like/love to draw - but that does not mean that some people have to treat 'drawing people' as children. A few days ago my friend asked me if I draw him a portrait of him and his girlfriend. I agreed without hesitation ... But when I told how much the portrait will be cost - he was angry with me, that I will not do it for free! I understand that it is my friend - but I spend my free time, energy, etc. on it. So it's no longer just fun for me. It becomes a way of life ...
I wish that those of us - involved in the drawing - were taken more seriously. Because it is a job like any other. Not sitting behind a desk in an office does not mean that I do not work as hard ...
The situation is very well illustrated here:
10 Tips for Tutorial Writing Success!10 things to consider when writing a tutorial10 Tips for Tutorial Writing Success!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Are you interested in trying our Official Photomanipulation Tutorial Challenge but unsure of where to begin? Look no further! Here are some tips about creating a tutorial that is easy for you to write and easy for us to understand. We hope these pointers will be useful to you; as always, feel free to leave questions or comments.
1. Sit down and really think about what you are good at doing
What do people compliment you about most frequently? What are you most proud of in your manipulations so far? It could be anything, from the way you select and cut out stock to the way you make your colors pop. Start from your strength, something you can talk about with ease.
2. Take the pressure off!
No matter how "good" someone is at photomanipulation already, they still have something interesting to le
Thanks for the past, present and futureI knew that the time would come, and I am so sorry, I was hoping it would be later in the future, but it is here: I can not thank you as I would like anymore. I have 4000 friends who follow my work and hundreds of fav every day (and that makes me great pleasure). Until today I wanted to tell you directly how I', grateful, but now I work 1 or 2 hours at the computer to thank, and commitments will not let me anymore. Definitely I will continue to respond to comments, but right now I want to thanks in advance all those who want to add my drawings to their collection and want to add my name to the list of friends.Thanks for the past, present and future1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Traditional Tuesdays #39Howdy peeps? Welcome to edition 39 of Traditional Tuesdays (yep, on a Wednesday again, oops). This week, like all of the other weeks, I'll be featuring fifteen works of art from the Traditional Gallery. Any more than that might and you might loss interest or it could cause your monitor to fail in an explosion of awesomeness. I would feel guilty if that were to happen, so I'm keeping it at fifteen! The Traditional gallery is a vast storeroom of work that covers many mediums and genres. I've tried to show a good mix of artwork, but I don't have room for them all. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!Traditional Tuesdays #392 years ago in Art Features More Like This
