Autumn Showcase!Hey Everyone,Autumn Showcase!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, Lotus Flower didn't quite make it into the top 10% of the shorts category in the AOFAs. But, the good news is, due to there being a number of technical issues during their first ever Spring Showcase, Lotus will be re-screened during the 2014 Autumn Showcase! The film will be eligible for votes once more! Many thanks to everyone who took the time to support Lotus this time around, and I'll keep you all posted on the next set of AOFA festival dates.

Vampire CollegeThe other day, my dad handed me a printout of an article from a conservative website about going to college. Dad does this from time to time, I think because he suspects I'm a filthy liberal, and wants to send a few shots across the bow to see if I fire back. I usually don't, because I've been through enough warfare to have a better idea of when to pick my battles.Vampire College2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I won't reference the article directly, but the gist of it was that college is a bit of a costly venture that doesn't always yield the results it promises for the price of admission, and may actually do more harm than good. (High schoolers, meditate on that for a minute, please)
Now, the article itself sort of descended into a screed about how colleges just crank out liberals anyway, and liberals tend to vote Democrat, and we should just bust the whole thing up because dear God, we need conservative voters or they'll have a WOMAN in the White House next...
...Which is unfortunate, because "liberal conspiracy" aside, I

Photoshop shortcuts making you forget PhotoshopInstead of a feature, this time I'd like to introduce you to some shortcuts in Photoshop that really help me save time and a lot of my nerves.Photoshop shortcuts making you forget Photoshop2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I make use of all of these shortcuts (and a couple more), so even if for some of you these look too complicated, they give you power over Photoshop. By employing these, I don't have to leave the canvas to go search for a function in the depths of Photoshop's many menus.
While I think that these shortcuts can be used universally in all versions of Photoshop, I can only account for CS4 to CS6, maybe CS3.
If you've been frustrated by Photoshop's inability of undoing steps with Ctrl+Z, here's your answer.
F - Toggle Screen Modes
To clear away all the excess panels that you don't need while painting. If you have a second screen, you can put some of your panels there where they will stay visible.
You can change the colour surrounding your canvas by right clicking there. I use b

2014 Brushes + TumblrHey everyone!2014 Brushes + Tumblr11 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, many times people ask me about what brushes I use and what not... I have a link for my brushes on my profile but I don't use that set anymore, so I just wanted to share the brush-set I've been using lately with you
You can download it here:
BRUSHES, FUCK YEAH!
The last 5 brushes or so are the ones I use the most ( like 95% of the time ).
It is much simpler than my previous set as I'm trying to "free" my "workspace" as much as possible. It still has some brushes that are universally in everyone's brush-set nowadays, so honestly I'm not sure who to credit anymore since they've been around for so long, but they probably come from Jaime Jones, Leventep, Kekai, M@ etc...
Just remember that brushes are just another tool and won't make your work better or worse automatically. Just use the ones you like the most and stick with that

Eeren's Features: HAIR!!Eeren's Features: HAIR!!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This time I decided to dedicate this feature to a particular and much more precise theme: hair!
Many people keep asking me how I draw my hair and when I browse other artists' deviantions hair is always one of the most eye-catching things for me (and for many other users, for what I can deduce from the comments)!
So... let's try to unveil the secret of hair together!
Since ancient times, hair has not only been a defense against cold, but it also has had great social significance for human beings.
It grows on most external areas of the human body and the highly visible differences between male and female facial hair are a notable secondary sex characteristic.
Hair has always been a sign of social and health status: they can represent ethnic ancestry, the growth of facial hair is a sign of puberty in men, while white hair or baldness are signs of age or genetics.
Not only hair may be a symbol, but the way it is styled can surely
DYNAMIC AND ACTIVE POSING FOR STOCKStock & ResourcesDYNAMIC AND ACTIVE POSING FOR STOCK5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Broadly defined, Action Stock is any photo-reference in which the subject is doing SOMETHING. That 'something' does not need to be extreme or particularly kinetic, it just has to show the effects of various forces on the bodies (or other objects) in the image. Perusing an artifact, sitting on someone's knee, even enjoying the aroma of a cup of coffee are great examples of actions that, when explored as stock images, can be of great value to artists.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with extreme, kinetic, over-the-top actions, either...
~ ~ ~
It's worth stating the obvious: if you are interested in exploring the more "kinetic" end of the action spectrum, know your limits. Don't work beyond your skill level and observe all necessary safety precautions; no shot is worth getting hurt over.

Starving ArtistThe Starving ArtistStarving Artist8 months ago in Personal More Like This
This topic is about rates and wages that an artist should start to consider when taking on a new job. This is my advice, so take this as advice.
So let’s begin. As an artist you should know right away that you are valuable. You can recreate people’s imagination and ideas into reality. You are the one who brings people together to be able to all see the vision for the final product. This is valuable. Keep this in mind when you take new jobs. Think about how many hours you plan on slaving over iteration after iteration. Because even though you may have a voice, if you agree to whatever the arrangement are, you must live up to their standards. So make sure you are paid well.
Imagine a client asks you to do 50 hours of work for only $500 dollars. That’s $10 an hour. That is not enough. You can go get a job that could pay you as much if not more, without being an artist. I’ve seen people’s salaries as low as 30k a year. This is not acc
5 ways to get things doneDear, deviantart fellow artists5 ways to get things done8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Continuation of my journal post "5 reasons why we fail to get things done"
Often we try to be as productive as possible - so many things to do, so many artworks to make. But then comes the procrastination, indecisiveness, lazyness and other excuses that come in our way. How to deal with them, how to accomplish all we ever wanted..? Here are my 5 tips for you that I have been doing for a while and I hope that It'll help you too.
1. 3 tasks for a day.
In the morning or in the previous evening write down 3 main things you want/need to do in a day. Be realistic, but strive for the things that will help you develop the skill, move you closer to bigger goals. Check them, change them depending on each day and cross them over when you have made them happen. You will k
