In Defense Of Art, The Artist, And The TruthNote: This journal entry is a response to another one, "In Defense Of Making A Living Through Art" by Droemar. My argument began as a long winded comment that mirrored the sentiments expressed there, but attempted to provide a different perspective on the matter as well. It has now been added here by request. I encourage everyone to give the original journal a read, as the subject matter it tackles is important, both mercilessly heartfelt and honest. At times it requires great bravery to stand up and admit the truth; I commend the artists that do it every day of their lives, but perhaps it's time the rest of the world learn something of courage too. I suppose this was my attempt to do so, and whether or not it changes anything in your life, is up to you.In Defense Of Art, The Artist, And The Truth2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This whole issue pisses me off.
Let me start by saying that I don't know if this post, my post, changes anything. It probably doesn't, but it's a perspective that I think desperately needs to be hear

Medium - Tilt-shift effect on Photoshop.Hello, I'm back with tutorials, and for the first time it's about edition on Photoshop. The objective will be making a miniature looking picture (tilt-shift). I'd say the perfect photos for this effect are those taken from heights, like on top of a building or on top of a mountain or something similar. Nevertheless, you can experiment with other kids of pictures and then tell me or show me the results. I'm always interested on knowing more.Medium - Tilt-shift effect on Photoshop.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For this tutorial, I've chosen an archive photo from Paris, taken on top of the Arc de Triomphe, and showing La Défense in the background:
And after some basic edition on Lightroom 3.4 I get this:
I'll explain now how ot get the tilt-shift edition step by step:
1st - We open the picture on Photoshop, and we turn on the "fast mask" by clicking here:
2nd - With pencils at 2500 and strenght at 0%, we paint the area that we want to look unfocused to make the tilt-shift.
3rd - We turn off the fast mask mode, and deselect and invert the selection:
Disney Faces Backlash over Merida RedesignMain points:Disney Faces Backlash over Merida Redesign2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Disney department in charge of the princess line is apparently male-dominated, which explains the careless thought behind the redesign
Brenda Chapman (Merida's creator) has officially voiced her outrage regarding the matter
Disney has replaced pictures of new Merida on their website with old Merida, which likely means they are working on redoing the atrocious work they've released

Doctor Who! And heading out of town for a week.Sorry for the lack of updates guys. I've been dealing with some "life stuff" this past week so I haven't gotten much sculpting done. I do have a small pile of rainbow dragons on my desk, along with a couple bigger guys, but I haven't glazed them yet. I'm heading out of town tomorrow to visit family for about a week, so the next batch listing won't be until late next week sometime.Doctor Who! And heading out of town for a week.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
On another note, I've just started watching Doctor Who the past couple weeks! If you care nothing for the show you should probably not bother reading past this point. It's a bit of a rant
I actually tried to watch the reboot with the 9th Doctor like a year ago, and found it just...weird. I even gave it a few episodes and then gave up, completely confused as to why people even like the show. Then I randomly watched a newer episode on TV recently. It was the very first episode with Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor, and I loved it! So I gave it another shot. It was a little hard to get into Eccleston, but by t
Merida's Princess Makeover + Merida's CoronationMerida has been officially initiated into the glitz and glamour of the Disney Princess franchise as of May 11, 2013.Merida's Princess Makeover + Merida's Coronation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before that, however, Disney has decided to change her look up "a bit":
Basically she's slimmer, curvier, and more polished - which watching the movies and possessing vision would prove she is rather the opposite of.
Now we've seen pictures of redesigned Merida circling about the internet (to make her fit into the art style of the mass-produced version of the princesses no doubt) but this is I believe by far the worst example of her new look yet.
Fans are outraged, and I believe change.org says it best:
The redesign of Merida in advance of her official induction to the Disney Princess collection does a tremendous disservice to the millions of children for whom Merida is an empowering role model who speaks to girls' capacity to be change agen

Art for Trees - project:iconspringtree-1plz::iconspringtree-2plz::iconspringtree-3plz::iconspringtree-4plz::iconspringtree-4pl5:Art for Trees - project3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

The Love for FoodFood is art in so many ways. We're so used to seeing it that sometimes, we fail to see it as a form of art. Culinary Arts is a somewhat small and forgotten gallery, specially when compared with popular galleries like traditional art. However, there's a vibrant community and many talented artists showing off their art.The Love for Food3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Food is special, not only because of the obvious organic necessity to consume it, but also because food, preparing it and eating is one of the few human activities that involves all five traditional senses, therefore rendering it unique in the way we appreciate it. Eating is a whole artistic experience, from the moment we smell the food, when we see it, savor it, feel its texture and the different noises it may produce during preparation or consumption.
I invite you to see food in a whole different way today. Go a step beyond fast and convenience foods. Add a bit of art to your life, live like an artist as
