5 Tools for Photographing JewelleryArtists Tools5 Tools for Photographing Jewellery2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
There are quite a few photographs on DeviantART that depict Jewellery and in particular Jewellery photography is popular within the Artisan Crafts and Still Life galleries. So here are some basic tips to capturing your Jewellery at its best whether you want to sell your products or just show them off..
I've recently used one of these to do some commercial photography and they work quite well. They're great for photographing small items on white backgrounds and having that clean, sharp commercial look. For those that haven't used them before, Lightboxes are translucent surfaces illuminated from behind which are designed to highlight the shape laid upon them in high contrast. Think about those boxes used to highlight X-rays in a hospital - just like that. They can be fairly decently priced and you can pick up bargains on places like Ebay. There's also a great article talking you through how to create your own. Check it out

Originality"Don't try to be original, try to be good" is what a man once said.Originality1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And i just love how he said it.
When you draw, of course you want to be original, but you shouldnt concentrate on that. You should concentrate on being a good artist. It doesnt matter if it isnt fully original. It matters if the art looks good, even in your own eyes.
Don't give up if you cant think of something original. Sometimes it feels like EVERYTHING is already created. So you do not have to think of something new everytime you create something.
I mean, for example a dog that walks on two feet isnt original, but you can still make it good. Or a landscape. The idea of drawing something that exisit isnt original, but you can still make it look beautiful.
So don't worry if it isn't original. Try to draw it good~<3

Why?To start it off, hi everyone. This journal is about something I've been seeing for a few months and kept on thinking about it. Why do so many people take so personal or too serious any Sonic games? The games are made to entertain when you're bored or when you just feel like having a bit of emotion at any time of the day. I've been browsing through DA looking some pics to fave and there hasn't been a single browse I've done that doesn't have 'I HATE SONIC '06', 'WHY DID SONIC UNLEASHED EXIST', 'SONIC LOST WORLD SUCKS!', 'I HATE SONIC HEROES!'............ and you're telling us this becauuuuuuuussse?Why?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Why do people become sooo picky with games? Sometimes it makes it uncomfortable to play the game when people rant and whine so much about them. Peronsally, I only play the games for fun, I don't see the bad side on them, I usually see the good side on them all. This is a good example, Sonic '06 is one of my personal faves and I begged for it on my birthday, Shadow the Hedgehog was a

Thanks for the past, present and futureI knew that the time would come, and I am so sorry, I was hoping it would be later in the future, but it is here: I can not thank you as I would like anymore. I have 4000 friends who follow my work and hundreds of fav every day (and that makes me great pleasure). Until today I wanted to tell you directly how I', grateful, but now I work 1 or 2 hours at the computer to thank, and commitments will not let me anymore. Definitely I will continue to respond to comments, but right now I want to thanks in advance all those who want to add my drawings to their collection and want to add my name to the list of friends.Thanks for the past, present and future2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Decided that informing people would be the best thing to do, even if it means calling her out. I think it's important to warn people so they won't get scammed.
All 6 accounts appear to be the same person. You can easily tell from the drawing style and sometimes the colouring.
As you can also see, they all introduce the character in the same way too.
Here is her process:
She makes a different character for each of these accounts, and tricks people into thinking that they are different people.
When they start getting popular (because let's face it, her art is very good), she starts taking points commissions.
She takes tonnes of them, raking in the points.
Then she does a few of them, gaining people's trust.
She then leaves the account to die, and repeats the process.
SO PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHO YOU COMMISSION.
I have seen people get scammed by her, and it's terrible. Think car
