Summer is coming to an end, there is only about a week left of August, and the heatwave that hit Norway is long gone. I have managed to catch the cold, even without trying, and the teachers in my country are on strike. I have realised that handling images taken in raw is very cumbersome seeing as iPhoto changes the format to JPEG again, in addition to hiding away the original files so you have to really put an effort into finding the original files again. I went to the USA in the beginning of the summer holidays. Very disappointed in myself as I have very few photos that are not family photos from the trip. BUT, enough about my irritation towards my Macbook and other stuff that are annoying. Let us look at some beautiful photography.
This week's, (or rather this time as I am not very good at making this a weekly thing), theme is Simplistic Nature, if that is even a team. What

The Lucky 13 (street tips)13 Street Photography TipsThe Lucky 13 (street tips)3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Tony Ray-Jones was an English street photographer. In the early 60′s he traveled to the U.S for studying for a Master of Fine Arts in graphic design at Yale. He moved to NY after graduating and got a job as an art director for CBS records but he was determined to become a photographer. In New York he became good friends with Joel Meyerowitz and became part of the NY street photographers scene led by Garry Winogrand.
Jones kept notebooks, a journal if you'd like in which he wrote down his thoughts, lists and plans about photography. In one of those lists, titled "Approach" he listed some tips for better street photographs. These tip are still valid today and can be used as a basic guidelines to better street photography.

User Friendly Journal Skin Coding
I've been making journal skins on DeviantART since 2010, I'd dabbled in CSS before, but never for other people. I know what my codes are and how to use them to their full potential and often, just code on the fly when I want something to do something. But making free and commission skins here showed me that I needed to make them as easy to use as they are pretty. And really, who wants to type in a lot of extra HTML when they go to write a journal? It is easy enough to access the artist's comments.
But even then, copy & paste, memorize that.... It can be a lot to deal with if you do not know CSS and HTML. Which is the reason most people get someone else's skin design in the firs

About six months ago, I started playing with the idea of how to make art more visible to people. When you sell artwork on deviantART, or elsewhere, you hit a wall; you can only share a link and hope that people will look at it and enjoy it. Adding a video allows you to share more about the piece.
Artwork often has a story behind it. Projects can often be better explained verbally than with typed words. And after all, if a picture is worth a thousand words, a short movie must be worth thousands if not millions. Give video a chance to show off your work!

Art History: Discovering DaliArt History: Discovering Dali3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Salvador Dali was born in Spain in 1904 and has been best known and recognised throughout the years for his surrealist, ambiguous works. Dali is responsible for inspiring a plethora of artists to create, combine and step outside of their comfort zones. Many know him for his paintings, but actually like many modern artists today, Dali traversed the fields of the artistic world to pick up talents in Writing, Photography, Sculpture and Film.
Dali was not famous for his methods. That's one of the mistakes that people make when tracing his history or seeking him out for inspiration. Dali's methods were much the same as anybody else's. However his concepts trumped them all and made him what he is remembered for today. He achieved his effects through a mastery of perspective
and a critical eye for color and shape, symmetry and innuendo. It is this realization that opens up the market for future dali-esque artists. There's nothing unusual behind the crea
FlipbooksFlipbooks seems like a really natural topic to choose with regards to animation and film. Really it's motion graphics in one of it's most primitive forms! The history of it may extend further back than we know but certainly the earliest one that we know of was by John Barnes Linnet back in 1868. At the time he named the flipbook a kineograph, and so this makes Linnet one of the founding fathers of animation!Flipbooks2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In 1882 Henry Van Hoevenbergh patented a flipbook design, having taken advantage of the works of another artist we have looked at recently, Eadweard Muybridge. What he essentially tried to make the flipbook is turn it into an 'optical toy'. In a later patent the flipbook has been updated so when flipped, it would show the next part or a completely different story.
Over time people began to realise this can potentially become a tool for more than just entertainment. In Germany, Maximilian Skladanowsky took stills from his film in order to make flipboo
Photography Troubleshooting: How to work with MistGetting the camera out, and the scarf, hat and gloves, and heading into a misty morning or hazy evening can result in the best kind of photographs. Atmospheric, moody and ultimately a fine example of whatever current season you're in - these kinds of shots present themselves at awkward moments so it's vitally important to be prepared. In previous years I've got up at the crack of dawn and ventured out with all the excitement of a young child on their first day of school - only to come home with a grazed knee and broken felt tip pens. Or rather, washed out, blurred and altogether rubbish photographs.Photography Troubleshooting: How to work with Mist2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Fog is a popular mist - we often get confused and just term it all as fog or all as mist. It's not quite like that. It's all about the visibility, if we can see less than 1km through it then it's fog. If we can see between 1 - 2 km then it's mist. So when is the best time to catch these ground level clouds at their best? Fo
'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 5 - BeardsOK so last week I covered one technique for creating skin tones, as promised this week I am looking at how to draw the Ewan's Beard. Firstly I have to say that I treat beards in the same way I draw hair – regardless of where it is on the body'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 5 - Beards1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have looked for short-cuts, magical solutions, inventive tools and spiritual guidance when it comes to drawing hair, and have only recently woke up to the fact that the only way to draw hair is by……well drawing it! Yeah I know not much of a revelation – but my eyes have been opened to the fact that you do in fact need to treat it as any other part of a portrait, it have lines, shades, tones and structure – and as with a nose, ear or eye – you need to treat each element in the same way.
I have produced a selection of step by step pictures to show how I am drawing 'Ewan's' Beard – it only shows the right hand side, but is equally the same for his moustache etc.

And now I'm finally posting semi-finalists from our contest Paint my OC. Judges and even I was busy lately, so I hope you'll understand why they needed some time to make their decisions (after all... there was so many amazing entries). And I think it's time to finish this contest. All prizes you can check in this article. I hope I'll post winners tomorrow, so you won't have to wait too long.
What homework judges had Well, each judge had to choose 8 semi-finalists from each category (there was drawing category and painting/coloring category). Here in the journal I posted top 10 drawings/paintings which got most votes, from each category (paintings in journal are not in order from many to less votes...it's random).

9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT1. FORGIVING - Oil is, even today, still one of the easiest and most forgiving mediums you can work in. Creating an oil painting is in fact relatively easy compared to other mediums such as watercolor or pastels.9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. EASY TO CONTROL - Oil paints are easy to put onto a canvas or panel. You just put some paint on your brush and rub it on the canvas or panel. The paint will generally not run or move.
3. SMOOTH BLENDING - Oil paints are king of the ring when blending colors together and creating subtle blends. Wet-on-wet is the sure fire way to get a smooth transition in your painting.
4. COLOR STABILITY - One great property of oil paints is that they don't change color when they dry as opposed, for example, to acrylics or watercolor. Oils stay pretty-much the same for a long period of time (however, in a very long period of time, oil paintings have tendency to yellow).
5. EASY TO REMAKE - It's simple, just scrape the paint off with a paint knife and repa

This week's episode will cover how to fill in your drawing outline – or at least how I will 'fill-in' my drawing outline. I was a little disappointed that not many requested the reference picture – so I guess that not many are following along, not to worry I will continue to detail the steps I have taken, and perhaps it will provide a useful reference to some people in the future. Remember these are not definitive ways to draw - just the way that I draw, I am sure it is not the 'best' the 'easiest' or the most 'professional' - it is just the way I draw
