| mini design contest |Just want to do it!| mini design contest |3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yesterday SHAKUMl asked me if I have some little characters. And I said 'no D:'
I decided to make it. I made some designs but its not that i want.
So i'm interested in your ideas.
I don't know if i make a new character but who knows. Maybe it will inspire me :3
Some kind of talisman 8D
theme: you should draw a little creature like SHAKUMl's character
it must be:
- as little as she
- has interesting but simple pelt
- has interesting item / accessories (but i guess it' not so necessary)
no matter what mix of animals/birds it would be. it must be little unusual and cute <3
1st place - full-body character with simple BG
2d place - full-body character without BG
3d place - chibi or full-body sketch
the contest starts right now and will end 1st of September 23:59 (Moscow time) 8D
I don't want to put down names h
Free Stock and Resources outside dAPlease fave if you find this journal usefulFree Stock and Resources outside dA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I updated and added new stuff on: March 9th 2014
before I started doing my own art, I was an avid incredimail email- stationary creator.
(All legal always with freeware, according to terms, with written permission etc)
For that reason I have collected a massive bunch of pages with stockphotos (free for profit reasons)
free & shareware fonts, plugin pages and so on.
I thought that it might be as useful for creating art for some of you.
The quality and resolution of the images varies so check yourself
I met several people who don't know much free stock outside dA..
although dA holds fantastic stock photographers and artists too! one can never have enough choice

Q and A: Basic Photoshop BrushesYou could view this blog entry on my site as well: http://thousandskies.com/blog/2012/11/10/qa-basic-photoshop-brushesQ and A: Basic Photoshop Brushes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once in a while people will ask me what kind of brush that I used in photoshop. I kept meaning to make this kind of post so I could explain it better. So if you guys have anymore question about photoshop I will be glad to answer it and make another Q&A post.
1. WHAT TYPE OF BRUSH DO YOU USE, IS IT BASIC BRUSH OR A CHALK TYPE BRUSH?
+ Ink Brush: http://static.squarespace.com/static/506a168ce4b00f5f2f4b48ad/t/509f0175e4b05a733d1030bc/1352597878435/brushes_ink.JPG The first brush I used is Hard Round brush and I started with 9 Pixels in size. Make sure under the Window> Brushes> Shape Dynamics> Size Jitter's Control is under Pen Pressure. This brush is useful for inking and blocking basic colors.

If you're among the deviants who follow me for my stamps and use them actively, this may be of interest to you:
My stamps can now be used anywhere you wish outside of deviantART, like in forum signatures and such, and for derivative works, both on and off dA.
But first, make sure to read each stamp's description carefully, because CC licenses have conditions that need to be respected, and if you have questions, doubts, or need clarifications, don't hesitate to ask me.
This said, go ahead and have fun spreading some stamp love! ;3
Coding Tips for Images:
when adding a stamp to your forum signature, blog, etc... use this HTML code:
<a href="URL address"><img src="Image URL address" title="Name of Image">• Replace URL address with the url of the deviation page - with this, when you click on the stamp you will be brought back to the original deviation page;
• Replace Image URL address with the actual stamp image url, which
Photomanipulation: Exploring textureTexture: We love it!Photomanipulation: Exploring texture3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
If there's one thing a lot of photomanipulators love, it's texture, glorious texture! Texture can change your entire image and make it or break it. In our community, it is frequently used for creating a "dark" effect, but it can be used to create or enhance absolutely any theme you can dream up. I wanted to share some brilliant examples of art that use textures well. I also want to provide some tips of things I've learned and direct you to some tutorials.
Let's get started!

Tips for success
Use textures to highlight positive assets of the manipulation; don't use them to try to cover flaws of poor blending or cropping.
If you take commissions for DA Points......please be cognizant of the value of points compared to real money.If you take commissions for DA Points...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
400 DA Points cost US$ 5 to buy.
That's 80 points per dollar.
This means that if you are offering an art commission for, say, $10, you should NOT be offering the same commission for 100 points. You should be charging at least 800 points.
If you are aware of the exchange rate and yet still undercharge for points when compared to real dollars, I suppose that's your prerogative as an artist. But you're really just giving others a way to take advantage of you by paying you in points instead of cash, even when they are fully capable of the latter.
Those looking to commission artists with points should, of course, be aware of the exchange rate, too. I have seen many people complain about artists asking for 300 points for their artwork... not realizing, of course, that it's only $3.75!
And, of course, the same applies when paying in different real currencies around the world. Make sure you check your exchange rates.

Tutorials and techniques 2It's time to refresh the tutorial journal! Added some new ones and removed those which, after some time, I found a bit misleading.Tutorials and techniques 23 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!
Poses, composition and perspective
Expressions and emotions

I hope you will enjoy your vacations and adventures you will start. However, my very first one will be a visit to an eye specialist to the capital, for a research, it will turn out whether I can have a laser eye surgery or not. I hope I will be able to, since my glasses have been constantly objecting me in every single meaning! I'll definitely let you know what is going on.

catlickfever is gifted in really many art mediums. Her photography about fruits, or her creative IDs are definitely eye-catching. She also has a great talent in mixed media and digital art - she creates fabulous drawings and photomanipulations and jewellery. Despite all of her bodacious work, Kait has only 99 watchers, and 13952 pageviews. Check out her work - it absolutely deserves to be looked at!

It seems like it could be a really fun opportunity for members of this "pack" to get together and not just chat, but also run around and look like our wolfy selves. (or whatever you like!)
It's free to join, although you do have to pay for the custom avatars. However, it's really not much at all, and they've got some really excellent wolf ones.
SLARF, or the Second Life Avatar Review Files, is a website that discusses most (but not all) of the animal avatars you can get. http://www.slarf.org/
Just a couple examples..
One of my favorite companies is The WereHouse... they do a great werewolf:

Welcome to the new deviantART. We're on our way to making this site what it should be -- the perfect haven for cats. Our announcement here explains everything you need to know about our takeover.
It's been a dream of mine to take over deviantART ever since I was a young kitten. Especially once fourteenthstar banned me for being underage, even though I was clearly over 13 in human years. But now, I'm back and ready to take charge.
Phase 1 was a complete success. We've taken control of all deviantART's internal controls, including taking Fella hostage. Good luck trying to free him! 15,000 deviations is a lofty goal.
Phase 2 is well underway. Have you seen our educational facts pop up? Have you learned what a group of cats is called? This is all crucial information for you to remember as our new subjects. It will be on the test.
