Alright... the feature is finished. And OMG I got so many comments. So it took me a while to make this feature. I said that I'll feature first 80 thumbs, but because so many of you wanted a feature I decided to post them more. So I featured first 136 thumbs. Unfortunately I couldn't feature more, cuz I get errors when I want to put more thumbs. I hope I'll be able to make this kind of articles more often. And I hope you'll enjoy this feature and give these artists more love If you want you can fav this journal, so that featured artists will get more attention which they deserve. Thank you

PE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS10 useful and not very known Photoshop tricksPE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Saving your .psd with all layers hidden makes a smaller file compared to saving it with all layers visible.
2. You can use the Crop Tool to quickly increase the canvas size of an image by holding down Ctrl + Alt whilst dragging the Crop Tool outside the current canvas.
3. If you want to see only one of your layers at a time, hold down Alt whilst clicking the eye icon of the layer. (do it again to show all layers again)
4. Holding down Alt while in a dialog box turns the Cancel button into a Reset button, so you can reset the values back to default.
5. If you want to just quickly check a very heavy .psd file, you can hold down Shift + Alt while clicking the Open button. This way Photoshop will open a flattened version of the file.
6. You can change the gray background that surrounds your image with the Paint Bucket Tool, just hold down Shift and make click on the background.
7. Not a very unknown tip, but if y
PE: How to Animate in GimpHow to Animate in GimpPE: How to Animate in Gimp2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Gimp is a free photo editing software that you can download at gimp.org. You can use it for a lot of different things like photo manipulations, drawing, pixel art, etc. Today though, we will be covering the topic of animation!
Note that this tutorial will only show the basics of Gimp animation. How to make the frames, how to save it and the such. So let's get started!
Start by making the subject. I just used a random black ball, but the subject can be as simple or as complex as you want, depending on what you're making. Make sure you switch over to the layers tab.
Tip: If you do not already have the layers tab there by default, go to any of the tabs and press that little arrow that the green arrow is pointing at. After you click tab press: Add tab> Layers. After that, the layer tab like in the picture should show up.

Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy3 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

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).

Easy bokeh tutorial!After writing a surprisingly successful journal entry a few days ago, I've decided I'll be trying to update this as much as possible - thanks for all the support everyone! You're amazing!Easy bokeh tutorial!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
There are so many more topics in photography I think people would find very useful. Years ago, when I first started dabbling in photography, I was always so fascinated by the 'bokeh' effect in backgrounds, and often attempted to get the same effect but to no avail. What was I doing wrong? I had a good Canon slr and a kit lens of 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 - shouldn't that be enough? WRONG! I started again from scratch, researched every possible tutorial existed on the web... I realized I was doing all the wrong things!
How to create beautiful Bokeh
1. Large aperture works best, so use a low f-stop number like f1.4, f1.8 or f2.8.
2. The best lens I ever bought was the Canon 50mm f/1.8, creating soft beautiful bokeh light in the background. I remember I only paid around $100 for it, so it reall

I'm a co-founder of Vanquish Interactive, a company that is currently producing a graphic novel called Telikos Protocol, written by Peter Cooper and illustrated by an amazing concept artist called Adam Burn, who's got a great cinematic style (see images below).
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!
I know I'm not the best salesperson, but just do me a favor and check out the video on the kickstarter page and see for yourself! - http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vanquis

And let me tell you that these women are gorgeous and amazing to behold as they prance past you. I love photographing these women.Soccer World Cup = Samba, Drinks, Paint and Women8 months ago in Personal More Like This
With the distraction of the Samba dancers and the huge crowds I almost neglected to notice the array of civilian women; more specifically those who were going topless and covering their chests with intricate body paint designs. Some of these designs were so detailed that I momentarily mistook them for real shirts or bikini tops, until gravity became evident. Any woman or man, either local or touring, can strip down and paint away. It is rather interesting to see.
I really love it here and hope you all will keep your eyes out for my photo uploads of the Samba dancers and chest painters both! Here are some previews of what to expect and some examples of what I
How Not to Beg for Pennies on the InternetA post script becomes a preface: A lot of what I've written is intended for those with aspirations of professional work in the future. I was 14,15,16 and on the internet once as well - I've been duped into spec work; I've been roped into webcomics/mods/games/RPG's that went nowhere after 10's or 100's of hours of my work. I know what it's like to want to be 'working.' You have to recognize that a professional attitude is more valuable than you think, and than when you behave and work as though you were a pro, you will be treated much more like one. A client unwilling to respect that wish is a client not worth working with. Don't race to the bottom just to get 'work' - practice, get good and your time will come.How Not to Beg for Pennies on the Internet3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

As you may be aware, we are in the process of revisiting gallery descriptions and making sure that all of our submissions categories make sense and are useful to you. We also want to make sure that categories are mutually exclusive so that people don't submit their deviations to the wrong galleries/categories by mistake.
This process brought out a very interesting conversation among some members of the CV team. Specifically, we started talking about what, fundamentally, the difference between digital drawing and digital painting was. Does it depend on brush strokes? Is there some technique used on one but not the other? What sets the two apart?
. . . OR, are they essentially the same thing?
Here's what the submission guidelines currently say about digital drawing and digital painting:
Digital Drawing: Digital art drawings created using computer-aided drawing tools or digital techniques.
