Good news, bad news.It's been a while, things have been a little quiet on DA for me lately. So I apologize for that. It's been a crazy month for me, a lot of personal stuff has happened which has kind of put things on hold for a while.Good news, bad news.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My father passed away a few weeks ago, it hit me pretty hard because we were really close. His name was Bob Brown, also a great artist and a singer, he was in a rock band back in his day. Anyway I've had some time to adjust to it, trying to get back into the swing of things now
The good news is.. I'm getting married! Me and my beautiful girlfriend Allira went on a holiday just a week ago (had it planned for months) we went to Thailand, also went on the Phi Phi Island tour where I seized the chance and got down on one knee, popped the question, showed her the ring I've been hiding for months, and she said yes! So now we're engaged!
So it's all happening now, I'm very excited about it all. I also just bought a whole new office setup, recently I got the new Cintiq Touch so
To share what you love IIHey everyone,To share what you love II1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
A little while ago I posted an art feature called To share what you love, because it had been a long time since I had done a feature just for the heck of it, filled with works I love, unaffiliated with any of the groups I'm an admin of, or any other specific purpose for the DA community. I figured I would do another one, just to share some amazing work that I love. So here it goes:
Update and featureHello everyone,Update and feature1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Woke up to a pleasant surprise today and got my first DD. So happy to have my work featured. Since my profile is getting more exposure today, I've decided to feature some of the artworks of people who watch me and people who have inspired my work. If you have time, please check out their galleries. I've been a bit quiet in terms of uploads for a few weeks as I've spent time creating more of my own resources. Thanks to aRchAng3lZz's video on Asteroids, I've made some of my own asteroids using Vue. I've also made some new star brushes, and I've made some of my own custom nebula brushes using Ov3RMinD's tutorial http://fav.me/d2lj42s. I spent a lot of time painting each nebula brush, and with the custom settings applied, I can create some random nebula shapes quickly as a base for artworks that feature nebulae. I will still also be painting nebulae without them though. The brushes are ok for small details, but after trying them out, I think larger nebul

:iconthesmallwonder: Some thoughts from Katie (thesmallwonder)
Spring has sprung and April showers have started raining down here at HQ.
Winter rain makes me want to crawl back into bed, get a hot cup of coco, and read a book all day. But there’s something different about April showers...
Maybe it’s because it’s less cold outside, or that the days are longer, but springtime rain makes me want to play in puddles.I want to go outside and smell the fresh air, and I just feel rejuvenated. Spring is a time for me to dust off old projects and start new ones. Forget New Years, April's when I get inspired!
I want to hear from you!
Do you play in the rain?
Does spring inspire you?

Photomanips for BeginnersWhat is a photomanipulation?Photomanips for Beginners4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Photomanipulations are images that have been composed of two or more photographic elements to create something new.
This is what the gallery description states. But what does it mean?
It means that a photomanipulation is based on photographs.
Not sketches scanned in (like line art for example) or screenshots from a video game. However, if you scan a photograph or for example dried flowers, it would be considered a photograph; while a photograph taken of line art still remains a sketch and is not consiered a photograph. Video game screenshots are copyrighted images btw and as such cannot be used at all.
It means that you need to use more than one photograph.
Retouching work as well as work that uses brushes or texture overlays only to "spice up" a photo that was taken by yourself(!) should be submitted to Photography > Darkroom, while work that uses stock images (i.e. images that you did not take yourself) should be

Moon light falling on the warrior. (deep voice) Uuuuu I like how this sounds. Picture is well made and moon light is classic but still cool
And his white hair. Awwwwww
I like when light comes from see. It seems like everything will be fine and you don't need to worry. How the author said light will always find the way.
This colorful sunset shot showcases the many forms light can take on in the late sky.
This artwork has a fantastic use of lights and colors that makes the painting very mystical and stunning.
Illuminating the rest of the sky, this explosion gives off a light that shows h

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recent

Cleaning up...As promised Im starting to slowly comeback.Cleaning up...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1 - Reorganize my DA account and the groups I'm in. - Done (the groups part)
2 - Organize my accounts on the different art sites. - Still need to get into it
3 - Organize my resources. - Half way through, 10-20gb deleted
4 - Separate daily sometime to work on art and to watch/learn new stuff - More or less, have been doin this sometimes, but at least more than what I used to (meaning nothing )
Anyways, I have started on this process. Even though only 2 works have been posted, I have more on the works coming up. On regards of my stuff Ill be soon deleting stuff that is terrible (sorry, cant stand looking at some of my artwork) and will start uploading a few old stuff that I never put here on DA, that are actually nice
Thats my start, now back to the cleaning...
