The Textures Feature Vol. VHi everyone!The Textures Feature Vol. V2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's time for my textures feature again. I will be presenting artists and artworks to you which stood out to me while wandering around in the resources department these past weeks and months. Before I do, I'd like to use the opportunity to ask you if you'd be interested in other journal topics than just features. There's some things here on deviantart that bug me and since everyone has their own voice, it might me a waste not to use mine in order to talk about certain topics. I will certainly make a poll about this as well, but if you happen to read this, I'd be glad to hear if you're interested in reading about critical things like art theft, especially resources-related. Let me know in the comments!
Moving on to the textures feature:
This genious texture pack is made by crumbeling bath bombs! The textures are high quality black and white textures, offering the opportunity to coloring them in the

Lesson: Easy Basic Editing in LightroomLesson: Easy Basic Editing in Lightroom 1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Photoshop Lightroom is a great program which gives you a plenty of editing tools, it's a great starting point to turn your image from a pale, flat one to a beautifully touched photo.
Get your Lightroom ready and start doing these few steps with me !
Into the " Develop " section you gonna find " Basic " Panel, then do the following ;
Step 1 : Exposure
increase to give your image more light. for below photo i preferred +1.26
ٍ Step 2 : Contrast
Increase a bit, for me I don't like the black areas to be so black but I like the photo to be well contrasted. +22
Step 3 : Highlights
For the highlighted area. sometimes highlights kills details, so my settings is -13 .
Step 4 : Temp (temperature )
To add warmness (yellowish) or coldness

Discovery of Titanic ~ 1 September 1985 Today is the day 30 years ago that the team of explorers alongside Robert D. Ballard discovered the haunting remains of the famous and infamous RMS Titanic. What was once seemingly too amazing to be true came to the light again, and the story told itself a thousand times over and will a thousand times more.Discovery of Titanic ~ 1 September 19855 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's the discovery of not only a ship, not only a seemingly 'cold and lifeless' monument of steel, but the discovery of a story, and the discovery of souls. The fate was brought to be viewed first hand in a very direct and chilling way. Teacups, saucers, china dolls and shoes landscaped the cold Atlantic floor, each one with a story, each one containing a memory. Memories we may not know, for we never handled these objects, but to people who did, they were important.
Titanic herself sits on the great seafloor, nearly another world of white sand and darkness. She is alone, all except for the souls of those who perished with
Art and overthinkingDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and overthinking2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There are times when everything goes well, but sometimes It's so easy to let those thoughts (whether caused by fear, life, problems etc.) to overcome your wilingness to do anything. So we let ourselves to get distracted, even though that's not what we really want to do. It's just easier. But we should not let overthinking to stand in our way.
People do tend to overthink all the time. Worrying about unimportant things, while doing nothing about solving actual problems. If there is anything that you think constantly about, that needs to be done - don't put it away till the later. It will only get worse. So often do we regret our decisions in the past, yet we are the only ones who can impact our future.
People also crave for distractions. That's why probably social media sites are so popular these days. Watching youtube videos all day - It's inspiring to see how other people get successf

And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
And then the whining school boy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school.
And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress' eyebrow.
Fashion Issue IV by Staged
Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths and beaded like the pard, Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth.

Being happy with your artI've noticed lately, that there's this emotion that leaves people overwhelmed with the massive amount of good art in the community, thinking that they can never become as good or popular as those others. So sad, because skill or popularity in itself shouldn't be the major goal of an art community. I think many people who start out here get so overwhelmed that they forget what it's actually about.Being happy with your art2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Many people out here, sign up to DeviantArt (or any internet art community) in order to publish their work on the internet. They've probably looked around for a while already. They saw those amazing artists that had millions of pageviews, and secretly hoped that by putting their art on the internet, they would be able to do the same. To become madly popular -- a community icon.
Well, sorry to burst your bubble; but it's probably not gonna happen. And if it's gonna happen; it's not going to be soon.

refusing requests is not stingy ('tiny' rant)I think I gave my two cents on requests already longer time ago, don't remember, I'm old.... but recent activities (actually reading a journal that called people who don't do requests greedy and stingy) made me realize I might take a moment to remind people of a few things regarding requests ... and how I personally handle them.refusing requests is not stingy ('tiny' rant)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
basically, requests are a cool thing, it's free art done by people out of friendship, out of pure joy of sharing or out of good will... or maybe even boredom or the hope to increase popularity and/or reputation - all of these are good reasons but it should never be forgotten that it's always the artist's choice whether they do requests or not.
the good side of requests:
requests are great if you are new to DA - when you don't know many people and are likewise unknown, opening requets will attrackt people to come and check you out, might even order artwork from you. If you draw for them they'll appreciate it (if they're not spoiled brats) and that
DeviantART, you're doing it wrong.Warning! Rant below! XDDeviantART, you're doing it wrong.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last night Deviantart posted an update on a new widget that is available to beta testers at the moment; deviantart commissions!
Yes it's a widget that want to make it easier to manage your commission and payments. I squeeled when I first saw the title on the article, because I think that in theory it's a really good idea!
But then I started reading the article for real, and I was not so impressed anymore...
For me, this widget has tre major flaws;
First off, the widget is kind of limited on what kind of commission you want to offer, and the price is more or less set in stone. One price for each offer.
That doesn't work for me since I sometimes raise or lower my price depending on details and backgrounds.
Second. The commissioners must pay me in dA points only if I use this widget.
No paypal, no other type of money transfer... just... points. It's just fucked up, and I see no reason that my commissioners should have to buy dA points to be able to commission me!
