Photography Troubleshooting: LandscapesI first started out with landscape Photography and it's something that I particularly enjoy now whether that's rolling hills, rolling clouds, or a bit of both on a stormy day. Photographing landscapes can not only highlight the natural terrain of the earth, but also what's going on in the sky and the weather effects of the day. KayHulbert asked for some Landscape pointers - so here are some handy tips on how to achieve great landscape shots:Photography Troubleshooting: Landscapes2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1) Use a Tripod
There are times when you just won't have the time. But equally if you've got a fantastic scene in front of you and you have a moment or two to set things up, then please do. You'll honestly be more pleased with your results. Where you may have a landscape that involves a bit of water, you might need a longer shutter speed. The tripod will help stabilise you. Consider also using a shutter release to help you as well. For a bit more information on tripods and when and where to use them

In the comments, link me a character or characters you want drawn.
Humans with simple designs only. (like the sample above) I will decrease the details if I find the character complex.
Fave the journal.
I will use a random number generator, and corresponding to their number in the faves list, I will pick 5 people, one character each.
Okay that's it!

I really am.
I never post anything like this, I always think it's too childish. This time I'm throwing my concerns out the window, and finally putting it out there.
I don't know what to do right now, and my emotions are so welled up inside me, so I don't think I can hide it any more.
I just feel... Done with this site. The community. I can't take it. I was an idiot to think working to get myself popular on this site would be worth it. People copy my art. People beg for points, then insult me when I say no. People consistently ignore what I say, and go on to ask stupid questions, or questions they could google themselves, or get confused when I do something because they didn't take the time to read why I'm doing it instead of asking me. And that's not all of it. I'm sick of it. I'm sick of it all.
As soon as I posted the giveaway, the stress packed on immensely. Everything came together. All the stupid questions and unjustified insults and uncaring and

Abstract & Surreal
AndyDragonPark says: "Abstract Photography is not something people immediately think about when you tell them you are a photographer. Most people ask " do you do landscapes, action, portraits or weddings". The truth is I do all these things but my favourite is Abstract Photography. Many definitions on abtract art will tell you that an abstract is one without a

I already have a NAME and a LOOK in mind! My problem is I have lost my tablet pen. :I So I need one of you lovely artist out there to design her!
Her name? Vanellope Von Schweetz! AKA The Glitch. So yes I would like for the Candy Cane striping to FOLLOW Vanellope's tights.
To make sure you get the CORRECT colors they are a mint green, White , and the THIN stripping is a BROWN. Many mistake it for pink, but it is BROWN!
Note: The RIGHT side does NOT have the brown striping. ONLY the LEFT side. <3 I want this replicated!

30 Ways To Pimp Out Your Account - 3.2EDIT TIME! Please note that this is NOT some copy/paste shit that was sent to me which I then recopied into my journal. It is also NOT yours, and I'm getting real tired of people not only copying the entire thing word for word into their journal but then giving me NO credit for it (or taking credit for it themselves). If you want to link to it, fine, that's awesome. If you want to put it in your journal as well, that's also cool with me so long as you ASK first and give a link back to me as well.30 Ways To Pimp Out Your Account - 3.28 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, I think it was made quite clear that this was primarily made in jest, but that seems to be flying over some peoples' heads, so I'm going to state this now: the following list was made to get laughs. LAUGHS. HAHA. See? That's a laugh. It's a reaction to something a person finds humorous. It is not meant to be taken seriously. Most people get that; this journal is like ten months old and I still get regular comments on it telling me how much they like it. However, to the few of you out

You're undervaluing yourself.In your country, or in your state, what's the minimum wage? Back when I worked as a minimum wage lifeguard and swim instructor, I was paid $7.50/hr, minus tax.You're undervaluing yourself.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now, how much time do you spend on your art? Personally, I can spend anywhere from ten hours to over forty, as I did on my last manipulation of that feather monster. Let's assume though, that you aren't nearly as meticulous as I am, and you can get a piece done in four hours. Assuming you're paid what minimum wage was in Illinois four years ago, that means you'd be paid $30.
How many of you actually charge $30 or more per manipulation?
How many of you think that you deserve minimum wage?
Minimum wage is generally reserved for those who are new at their work. They have little to no experience, they generally have few bills... really, they just need to gain work experience to put on their resumé, plus make some cash to buy some fun things they may want, or perhaps start saving for college and buy some gas

Two months and eight days, 64 chapters plus an epilogue, 134 single-spaced typewritten pages, 74478 words and countless hours later, Everlasting Snow has finally come to a close.
And, to tell you the truth, I have no idea where to start.
Let's start just over a couple months ago, with a girl, a laptop, and a movie. One that changed her life. For the better. One that connected with her on such a deep level that no amount of writing or creating could get it out of her system, and never will. One that revived her love of writing, something she hadn't done in years because it never gained any recognition, she never felt it was good enough, and life events just left her feeling so trampled upon, further deterring her from putting the pen to the paper.
And so, never before so inspired and just recently discovering the world of fan fiction, she opened her laptop, brought up Microsoft Word, and began to write, not helping but feeling that a certain winter spirit (th

My complaint (dA related):
I hate it when people keep posting body pics to get attention from perverts/stalkers.
Especially, if they repost 42354235 times to get more favorites on certain photos. Gets on my nerves.

PART_2 ! General
So... this is the first part in featuring some extremely useful tutorials which can be found on DA (and some from off-site as well). This one isn't limited on digital art only, but the rest will be. I wanted to post everything in one journal, but theres 200 thumbnail limit, sooo yeah I decided to divide everything in following categories: sketching/referencing/anatomy etc, General, blending, steps, color, perspective/Composition/value, Walkthrough, nose, hair, skin, photoshop/wacom, brushes, eyes, lips, textures, ears, fabric/clothes, environment, misc (how to paint water, fire, rocks, rain, clouds, pearls etc. ). This one is about Sketching/referencing/anatomy etc.. In every journal I will also include some interesting videos that I think you should check out And, if you know about some tutorials that can be helpful to other artists, note me, thank you :heart
