The Fairy Tale, A Lifelong ResonanceA thousand years tradition of scaring children at bedtime continues for children of all ages. News of the discovery of 500 “new” fairy tales collected over 150 years ago [link] in Germany and locked away in a forgotten archive has me thinking about the enduring importance of these narrative treasures in the lives of human societies worldwide. My worry, have fairy tales been marginalized by modernism?The Fairy Tale, A Lifelong Resonance2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Copyright...Patent...TrademarkSomeone needs to write up a section here in DA about copyrights and such. And I don't mean a journal, I mean an informational page. I've noticed that about 99.9999% of the people out there are so confused about copyright and put marking on their art.Copyright...Patent...Trademark2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The rules are almost simple.
Copyright: rights to something you own that can be copied.
Trademark: a design, phrase, title, name, logo
Patent: process, idea, invention
So, if you were to draw Spider-man in your own pose, that has never been drawn before. Marvel DOES NOT own the copyright to that work at all. There would be nothing that Marvel could lay copyright infringement to. However, they would nail you on trademark infringement. Because they have a trademark on the design of the costume and the logo of the spider.
Now, if you were to take an existing comic book cover of Spider-Man and remake it in traditional oil painting style...you would get nailed on copyright and trademark infringement. Because it is in essence a recognizable copy
Photoshop Trickery Tutorial on You TubeHola!Photoshop Trickery Tutorial on You Tube2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you so much to all the people that checked out my last set of videos and awesome feedback. I had a blast putting together the first video.. so I cranked out another!
This time the theme is "Photoshop Tricks / Techniques"
I had a couple requests from the last video- and will be sure to incorporate that stuff coming up
I had some major quality / video compression issues... but hopefully I got it all worked out in this new batch. I made playlists on my channel (bottom left) to make the videos continually play back to back.
Playlist link ( I think- haha): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoEFyXtzKkU&listLB45790B50DA5B26C

You Tube TutorialsHeyyyyyy heyyyyy!You Tube Tutorials2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I finally got off my ass and started up a You Tube channel based on tutorials! hahah
The first (well actually second video) i have up is pretty, kinda, really important for those trying to import their line-work for digital painting.
This http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Hg1MkstS_A shows you how to set your lines up to start the painting process. I have a drawing tips video uploading now.... (I'm new at the whole video / tutorial thing- so hopefully it will be posting soon...)
The tutorials will be broken up in parts... so I apologize for any abrupt editing haha.
My channel link is:
If the videos are super boring... let me know. If there is something you want me to address specifically.. let me know. I will be tackling as much of my process as I can think of. (Paints, environments, Photoshop techniques.....etc.)
Aside from that... more in the works!
New AVENGERS Movie Trailer With Extended FootageDuring the Super Bowl Game, Marvel Studios launched their new Movie Trailer for their upcoming Epic "Avengers" Movie written and directed by Joss Whedon. This is the extended edition of that Trailer with more Scenes at the end.New AVENGERS Movie Trailer With Extended Footage2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you have not seen it or just want to check out the extra footage, heres the http://cms.springboard.gorillanation.com/embed_code_lightbox/index/45/video/434637/wo005/10/350/279/0/false/source/'
This was one of the reasons I watched the game, to see the full trailer, which I thought looked great. It delivered a lot of action, plus showed us some more of the characters interacting. I liked the humor at the end and it was nice to finally see the Hulk with the Team. I can't wait to see this on the big screen in May, what did you guys think?
