First, the results of that "Watchers Feature!" test some of you helped with: after 2 weeks there's still less Favs than people featured on the latest one http://diamond4girl.deviantart.com/journal/WATCHERS-FEATURE-pt-23-318773207 , but nonetheless, with some more Favs than usual, the feature ended up in the Footer for about a day and half and your works have been seen by 3-4 times more people than usual. (1100+ on the latest one vs. >400 views on the few previous ones). Thank you all who helped with the test. I consider my theory relatively proved, so it's up to you what you do in the future. Btw, glad some of you finally figured out you can fav Journals!
In case you missed it, but you're interested, I wrote a little "tutorial" on making features, especially big/huge ones and all in extremely time saving and easy way AND with your thumbs all arranged nicely in your Journal http://diamond4girl.deviantart.com/journal/Tutoria

Fake art - why care and what to look forI posted this last week for anyone looking for help to spot fake art. This is not law, if you don't care, feel free to move on. But if you do care that there are fakers out there, then maybe this could be of some use to you too. We have a serial faker on the loose on dA today so it sparked this little lot once more.Fake art - why care and what to look for2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, the questions/scenarios asked are always the same and the responses/justifications are always the same, but give them a minute to sink in before replying and insulting.
(Q1) Why do you care if someone is cheating what does it have to do with you?
(A1) Well, this is a public ART site and if people are submitting art that is not actually what they claim it to be, then they are dishonest. This will annoy some people and not others. If your passionate about your work then the chances are you'll find it insulting to the artistic community as a whole. Additionally, a lot of admins of groups HAVE to deal with fakes as a daily occure

Fake art by Natmorley!Hi my friends!Fake art by Natmorley!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yep, another Journal about :iconnatmorley:
This is not meant to start a witchhunt, immature harrassment on her profile won't help anything!
Regarding her latest Journal, I asked some questions.
I wonder if she'll answer any of them...Of course, she didn't answer them
So, what's the fuss about her?
Her drawings are fake, simply as that.
How could you tell?
She makes a scribbly drawing and overlays the original photo in PS to make the shading, hair etc. look better. (OR she prints out the photo and scribbles over it, whatsoever...)
You can always make out some "ghosty shadows" in her works, these are the remainings of the original photo that she just couldn't hide properly.
Is there any proof?
Here's a older drawing of her (which she already deleted ) where you can clearly

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:

Like many artists are doing to thank their watchers, I've decided to do the same.
Here's the principle:
Each of my watchers will be featured on my page for one week (where possible).
The order will be from the oldest to the newest. Nobody will be forgotten.
15 at 25 deviations will be featured at the same time, not more.. what gives you a good visibility.
Hoping that it will make you more famous on DeviantArt,
thanks again for your support!

Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)Art is a process.Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Like that of the scientific method and philosophical alchemy, art can be refined and improved through process. From observation, to experiment, to reflection and conclusion, art is improved by the steps we make towards change, not solidification and stagnation. Much of the advice out there for drawing is simply practice or avoid distractions. This advice is good, but there is more to creation than just throwing yourself mindlessly into a task and avoiding bad habits along the way. Good habits and knowledge will help to excel your learning process faster, and from that, improve faster and more effectively.
Look at it
As an artist, observation is key. The skill we develop is not just seeing, but interpreting what we see, remembering what we have seen and recording it in the form of visual art. This is a skill that, aside from blindness or vision degradation, you will be able to improve during your entire life. The way of seeing from an art

Interview with MrEyeCandy66Interview with MrEyeCandy662 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello Rob, please tell us a bit about you. Who is MrEyeCandy66?
Hello, my name is Rob and I am a self-taught artist from the Chicago area. My art can be categorized as "realistic" but I really see it a study of light, reflection, texture, and shadow, with pencil. I work directly off of reference photos usually, but at times will work from imagination. My favorite things to draw are portraits, although animals are a close second.
How did your Drawing journey begin?
When I was young I would draw cartoons from the newspaper comics. I graduated to drawing my own comic books for my own amusement and I would spend many hours in the Art section of the library paging through artworks by Rembrandt, Frank Frazetta, Norman Rockwell, and Boris Vallejo. It fascinated me how simple paint on a canvas could come to life and just jump off the page. In High School My Art teacher was very
