It's too quiet
I don't like my 'pretty face'
It doesn't stand out
I don't like my 'polite persona'
No one wants to listen to it
I don't like being a 'good girl'
Because good girls are ignored
And what is the point of being good?
When you don't do anything good?

porn can be...art 0_0Hola gente!!porn can be...art 0_02 years ago in Personal More Like This
Siempre he pensado firmemente que el porno no podia, bajo ninguna circunstancia, ser arte, que era algo estimulante y casi necesario para una vida sexual divertida y sana, pero que era totalmente independiente del arte.
Como siempre tengo que aclarar que un desnudo artistico no es porno, porque ello implica penetracion y fluidos entre otras muchas cosas.
Siempre he estado totalmente convencida de que el porno no era arte hasta hoy. Mi novio me ha enseñado fotos de una actriz porno preciosa e impresionante llamada Stoya, una mujer de cara angelical, piel super blanca y con pechos pequeños, lo cual me ha gustado mucho, y buscando en wikipedia vi que ademas mantuvo una relacion con el genial marilyn manson, que le gusta la lectura y la ciencia ficcion, el arte y que queria ser bailarina. Ella no se parecia en nada a ninguna de las muchas actrices porno que habia visto anteriormente, siempre super operadas y en muchos casos deformes y horribles, ella era una mujer na

Since January I've been working as a product ambassador (promotional modelling) for Nissan at all the Auto Shows around Canada (No I'm not in a bikini in front of the GT-R, I'm actually quite knowledgeable about each and every vehicle from Nissan). January I was in my hometown Montreal and in Februar I was in Toronto. But March was just insane with Quebec City, Calgary, Ottawa and Vancouver all in the same month. One show left to do and that is Edmonton from the 18th to the 21st of April. So if you are from the area come pass by and say Hi!

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Resizing Pixel Art : Smaller?I've had a few question on this (resizing pixel art to be smaller) on my most recent deviation and I've replied in kind to each person who has asked so far, but I thought I'd post my answer here as well for more to see.Resizing Pixel Art : Smaller?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is it possible to shrink pixel images?
Shrinking pixels is ...well it's not really feasible x_x. It can be done, but not done very well.
When you're making pixels bigger what you're doing is essentially multiplying every pixel in to a group of 4 pixels to make a 'larger pixel' or square
So lets say the image you're resizing is just of a pixelled line that is 2px tall and 5px long. After resizing it to 200% it will be 4 px tall and 10 pixels wide. The dimensions are larger b/c each pixel the line was composed of has been duplicated to create 'squares' that are twice as big as the original individual pixels.
So you can create the illusion of 'larger' pixels, but they're really just more regular sized pixels grouped together to look like bigger ones.

OMG, what is this?
It's a fractal, baby!
What is a fractal?
It's a really difficult question to answer, but I'll try to keep it as simple as I can. So, fellow fractalists, if you're reading, I won't be that precise in answering.
Wikipedia says: "A fractal is a mathematical set that has a fractal dimension that usually exceeds its topological dimension and may fall between the integers."
Wait, what? I didn't even understand myself.
Ok, a fractal is basically the repetition of a same "image". This image can be repeated with its original dimension or fractal dimension (it can be resized).
For example, let's pick the Romanesco Broccoli (the image is from Wikipedia):
As you can see, it's a repetition of the same "peaks" over and over, each of them with diffe
Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr

Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way, no rigid process you must adhere to, no shoulds or shouldn'ts except those you designate for yourself. This is one of the fun parts of being an artist, really - have a heady good time with it.
- Be patient.

Right now the guys are finalizing the first issue, and in order to get funds for this venture we've started a kickstarter page that has already exceeded our expectations! Telikos Protocol was just named the Editor's #1 Top Pick on Kickstarter and it's already raised $25k, which is incredible in such a short period of time. You can get a lot of cool stuff as a backer, as well as making sure Adam and Peter can start working on the next volumes, so if you're interested in amazing art and cool sci-fi stories you should definitely check it out!

The United States Congress is proposing two laws that address the problem of wide-scale unlicensed distribution on the Internet of motion pictures, songs, trademarked goods, and patented pharmaceuticals.
One of the proposals is called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and would direct search engines in the United States to block Internet sites outside the United States that are primarily engaged in distributing unlicensed content.Another proposal called PIPA (Protect IP Act) would block websites located in the United States as well.The Obama administration is putting a stop to these proposals. It wants the Internet companies and the content companies to get together and come up with more functional and less destructive solutions.
