Say hi to SenshiStock.com!
This is a really simple, small site to start but I have bigger plans for it! For now, it's a place where you can go to purchase advance downloads of unreleased stock, or to buy the USB drive. It's also a central hub for SenshiStock social media. The biggest of thanks goes to Steve Forde for his quick implementation of the site!
There are four packs available for advance download right now: Bird's Eye, Fans, Monster, and the collab shoot with Sinned-angel-stock (more about that one below). The packs will rotate throughout the year allowing you access to different types of stock. These are all stock images that will eventually be available in the gallery for free, but your purchase now allows you early access to them and helps support the creation of more stoc

How to Enter: Send us a the link to a journal with what you want (if you're doing more than one secret santa for instance). I shall then shuffle them up and distribute them randomly in one month (dfpdogz, just use the online fruit machine. It'll be easier) (So November 17th). That gives one month for planning and one month for drawing!

After the overwhelmingly positive response I've gotten yesterday on the question of the event-tan contest, I just couldn't help but make this official ASAP! So here it is! Officially announcing the winter 2012-2013 event-tan contest!
So, here's the rules: If you've got an idea... GO FOR IT! If you have any doubts about if your idea would be accepted or not, just ask here, and I'll be glad to tell you if it's ok or not.
So, first off... what IS an event-tan? Well, remember our object-tan contest from last summer? (If not, check out the old blog posts, and the submission folder.) Well, same concept, except this time, instead of anthropomorphizing objects, we're doing the same thing to events.
Now that we've cleared THAT out of the way... what IS an event? Well, quite simply, a little bit of anything. It can be Christmas or new year's, it can be the holidays in general, it can be birthdays, first kiss, the Mayan apocalypse (or just the apocalypse in general even), the winter sol

Top Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring IllustratorsI wrote this thing. If you want to repost it on your blog or journal, please credit me with: Article by illustrator Kristina Gehrmann - www. mondhase.deTop Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring Illustrators2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Selling yourself as a beginner
I found a prime example of this in a forum for artists seeking work. The thread title was „Starting-out artist looking for a chance",, and the thread told that the artist is „looking for a client for whom I may draw" and has „just graduated from art college".
We all were at this point once, but usually it takes too long to realize that „beginner" is the wrong mindset, even if you are one. Such statements sound like excuses and are guaranteed to weaken your position. Don't make excuses. Do not justify your work, and do not justify your prices. This is a tricky habit to acquire since we're not very confident by nature, but remember the image you wan

BJD Doll FAQBJD Doll FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please read this if you are interested to learn more about the dolls I photograph. I dont have time to keep answering the same questions over and over again >_< I will be updating this journal entry as time goes on. Feel free to add a question in the comments section and I will try to answer it.
❤ BASICS ❤
What are these dolls?
They are BJD - ball jointed dolls. If you search Google with those keywords you will get plenty of results with companies and other info about them. This is the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball-jointed_doll. Also this LJ answers some questions too http://bjd-wtf.livejournal.com/ . If you want to learn more, I would suggest Den of Angels forum (http://www.denofangels.com/forums/).
Do you make them?
No I don't make the actual doll, I don't sculpt it. I am a customizer, I paint their faceups. I am basically a makeup artist for resin dolls. You can find the link to my commission shop

Best way to record yourself drawing digitallyUpdate: Added section about CONVERTING video sessions below.Best way to record yourself drawing digitally3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Quick bit of help here, because I'm not sure if everyone knows the best way to handle this if you want to record your progress while drawing in Photoshop, Manga Studio, Painter, whatever.
IF YOU ARE USING WINDOWSYou may have tried some of the screen recorders out there like CamStudio, FRAPS, or some free ones out there. You may have noticed, or had become frustrated with, the fact that many of these programs cause a significantly huge hit on your system's performance. When you try drawing in Photoshop, your tablet response comes to a screeching halt. Then you find a program that records without impacting your drawing performance -- only to find that the resulting video recorded at about 1 frame every 3 seconds. Then you tried FRAPS, then found out that 4 minutes of video resulted in a 3.2GB file. All of these are less than ideal.
A while back, I searched all over the net for a program that encoded video from my screen
PE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS10 useful and not very known Photoshop tricksPE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Saving your .psd with all layers hidden makes a smaller file compared to saving it with all layers visible.
2. You can use the Crop Tool to quickly increase the canvas size of an image by holding down Ctrl + Alt whilst dragging the Crop Tool outside the current canvas.
3. If you want to see only one of your layers at a time, hold down Alt whilst clicking the eye icon of the layer. (do it again to show all layers again)
4. Holding down Alt while in a dialog box turns the Cancel button into a Reset button, so you can reset the values back to default.
5. If you want to just quickly check a very heavy .psd file, you can hold down Shift + Alt while clicking the Open button. This way Photoshop will open a flattened version of the file.
6. You can change the gray background that surrounds your image with the Paint Bucket Tool, just hold down Shift and make click on the background.
7. Not a very unknown tip, but if y

As you hit the top of the highest hill, you're greeted by miles of seemingly untouched green land and it's awe inspiring in short and it's where I go for insight, inspiration and overall contentment.

But that's not what this note's about, it's to share something I mentally debated and concluded there with you.
