Syn's Dithering TutorialWhat is dithering?Syn's Dithering Tutorial1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Dithering is a pixel art process used to blend blocks of colour together or help apply a texture to a pixelled surface. Within emoticons it is most commonly used when making pixelled backgrounds, however it can be used in a number of other areas, e.g. massive emote bases, pixel objects etc. In this tutorial, we will focus on how 2 colours can be blended with dithering.
To break dithering down into simple terms, it is achieved by simply taking the colours from the two blocks of colour and placing individual pixels of each on the opposite side. This creates a region where the two colours merge together to create a more blended colour transition instead of a clear line between the two.
Dithering can seem like a complex process, but it's really not. Once you get the basic idea and technique, it's just all about practice and over time you'll learn how to apply it to a number of different situations. There are many dithering styles which can be

I am Dr. Smart the brilliant scientist of the emote community. This is the first of 20 emoticon related news articles I hope to post in the next year between today (my 20th birthday) and February 10, 2013.

PE: Smoooth Animation Tutorial: JumpingSmoooth Animation Tutorial: JumpingPE: Smoooth Animation Tutorial: Jumping1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Today we will learn how to make smoooth animation! In this tutorial we will cover a basic movement, but sometimes difficult to look natural, jumping.
I am using a pixel black ball as the subject, but really, you can apply this tutorial to anything you want to jump! Like animals and humans (of coarse they would bend their legs instead of squish.;D)! If your animation starts to "trail", or you simply don't know how to animate, you can check out some other tutorials I have made that are linked at the bottom.
Let us begin!
Lets start with the subject. I am using a 13x13 pixel black ball, but you can use anything, even if it isn't pixeled.
Now for the squish! This is the set move to gather energy for the jump. You wouldn't jump straight legged, would you? For my ball, I made it shorter, and expanded it out some on both ends. If your subj

Updates to Literature Appearance
We've made some changes to the way literature and Journals display on deviantART. In order to provide a more unified experience, we've updated the format of literature deviations and Journals to better display your text, as well as to optimize the reading experience for your readers!
In addition to the updated background, we've made sure that familiar tools for readers have been retained with the new layout. Readers can change the background from light to dark, enlarge the text, and more, using the buttons presented at the top of each literature deviation.

So I heard you like emotes? - Vol 126 - relaunchedSeries re-launchSo I heard you like emotes? - Vol 126 - relaunched2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
After quite a gap I've decided to try re-launching my long running emote news article series. I've had a couple of people mention how much they enjoyed it and now I've got a bit of extra time I feel I can give it another go. It's coming back in near the same format and with a slight change to the name 'So I heard you like emotes??' instead of the old 'So i herd u liek emotes??' as I wanted to drop the chatspeak element. I hope to post it every 1-2 weeks depending on how busy the community is at the time - So if you want more frequent articles keep posting more art .
If you enjoy the series please do let me know, and if you have any suggestions or news you'd like advertised give me a note

Relativity Contest WinnersFinally...Relativity Contest Winners2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ravenswd and I are happy to announce the winners of the 2nd annual Relativity contest. This year's theme was "Your OC as a hero or villain in the Relativity universe."
If you like this article, please consider faving it so that others can find these artists and their works.
It seems a common thing for contest hosts to complain about the difficulty in judging. That's because it's hard! And this contest was no exception. Lovely art, wonderful words, and great ideas. With so many diverse entries, we had to pick one criteria to use as the main judging point. That was story. More importantly: Who did we want to know more about. Which pieces piqued our interest and made us want to know what happened next. With that in mind, we announce the winners...
As pixel artists, we opened this special category since pixels sometimes struggle against more trad

Relativity Contest - Great Prizes!Relativity Contest - Great Prizes!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Ravenswd and I are proud to announce our 2nd annual Relativity contest!
The theme this year (overwhelmingly selected by our Watchers) is:
Your Original Character (OC) as a Hero or Villain in the Relativity Universe
Since this is a Relativity contest, simply drawing a picture of your OC as a superhero will not count. You must incorporate something from Relativity into the piece. Either another character from the universe or something that is a direct and obvious reference to the world.
ANY of the Relativity characters can be used. That includes the characters in or out of costume. Supporting characters or villains may also be used.
A full list of characters, profile sheets, and references can be found in the RelativityComic Group here ---> http://relativitycomic.deviantart.com/gallery/
Your character can be, but doesn't have to be, a costumed hero or villain. Your OC could be a heroic cop on
