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

Keep Calm And Comic-Con
Wed Aug 8, 2012 by techgnotic
This year was especially important to me personally and was a milestone of sorts on
multiple levels and for deviantART as a whole. Many of the reasons why will become clear
over the next few months as announcements are made and new ideas are shared with everyone
in the community.

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
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.

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

Telikos ProtocolHey guys!Telikos Protocol3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

For many of us, the first “art gallery” to command our attention (and constant, even daily, monitoring) in our
lives existed within the pages of the local newspaper. It was called “the movie section” and its ever-changing movie
advertisements were like little frames that rarely contained less than pure magic for young imaginations.
The Film Poster has existed since the earliest days of silent movies and the pulse-elevating excitement of the
first sight of an upcoming adventure, action, or sweeping love story that we might have only “heard good things about”
still packs a psychic punch throughout movie lovers today.

Soccer World Cup = Samba, Drinks, Paint and WomenWith the 2014 Soccer World Cup in Rio fast approaching, in excited anticipation, the Brazilian streets are swarming with parades of beautiful samba dancers shaking their...assets! 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 Women9 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
