Hints and Tips #1Hello and welcome to the first instalments of 'Hints & Tips' andHints and Tips #16 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I hope these short and simple Tutorials will help boost and
inspire YOU to learn and create your own works in the many
forms and mediums that you may work in.
SO... The first Hint/Tip is -
FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)
1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat
=to show that it doesn't remove paint, here is the finished piece=
I hope this helps
The dA commUNIty and YouThe dA commUNIty and YouThe dA commUNIty and You2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When first stumbling upon deviantArt, whether 5 months or 5 years ago, we decided to join because we wanted to share our art. We wanted our work to be seen, to be appreciated, to be understood. However, it can be a long and difficult journey from obscurity into the spotlight. Many newcomers and even long-time deviants are sometimes overwhelmed and discouraged by a seeming lack of interest and/or exposure for their work. After all, that's what dA is for, right? Not necessarily - the answer to that question is a bit more involved than a simple "yes" or "no".
Society in general has become used to instant gratification. Want the new album by your favorite artist? With the click of a mouse, you've got it! Need to get in touch with your cousin who's moved to Italy? It's easy -- just Skype! The college you want to attend is across the country? No problem, they offer online courses!
You may be wondering how this is relevant to dA. Well,

Where do you draw the line with 3D realism?I graduated a few years ago with a degree in illustration and animation. Something one of my tutors asked us once really stuck in mind, so not in exact words it was something to this effect:Where do you draw the line with 3D realism?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
"How much 3D realism is too much? If the 3D is too realistic isn't it just worth to photograph or film something?"
It's a good question really, everytime 3D modelling/animation hits the roof with realism, you know it's inevitable that someone is going to come along and make it one step better. But imagine hours and hours and hours and hours (you get the idea) of 3d modelling, then rendering, then all that post production work, just to make a scene or characters look realistic. Anyone who does 3d modelling or animation/film can tell you, loading bars are one of the banes of their work.
They can often produce amazing results these days, there's no doubt 3D modelling and film have taken amazing strides over many years. Of course some situations you absolutely can

How To Survive As Freelancer In A Subscription Based (Virtual) Society
This one is a wake-up call, one to contemplate how we use social media and publishing strategies.
This article don´t refers to sociel media tools and widgets, but wants to explore the heart of how publishing has changed and how to use it.
Actually when Magazines began with subscription models back, somewhere in the last century (please correct me if I´m wrong), some television stations decided to do the same and ultimately I believe that is the reason why we have subscriber-based social media networks now, where every person can get subscribers.
This is a long story short.
Sure, there are differences between a magazine a television station and you.
But how big is the difference if the currency is attention time?
I think we live in

Pacdabutt's FAQ Last updated: 11/4/12Pacdabutt's FAQ6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Dating sims/Flash Questions
What do you use to make your games and dating sims?
Macromedia Flash 8. (I'm using a pretty "outdated" version FYI...)
Is Flash free? Does it come with most computers like MS Paint?
It does not.
Where/how can I get Flash?
It can be purchased from the official Adobe website here. Like Photoshop, it's expensive. More retailers can be found with Google.
Will you make another sim date soon?
I might (if I'm not making one right now). But from 2009-2012, I've managed to release 2-3 games per year. I work on sim dates when I please.
Why don't you make dating sims for guys?
My current audience is made up of mostly young females. I'd like to target towards them. There are many visual novels/dating simulations for males out there though. Most are in Japanese, but there are quite a few in English too. Note that many if not most of them fe

Favorite Art QuotesWe have art so that we may not perish by the truth.Favorite Art Quotes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Life beats down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one.
For me, painting is a way to forget life.
An artist is a dreamer consenting to dream of the actual world.
A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.
While I recognize the necessity for a basis of observed reality... true art lies in a reality that is felt.
The question of common sense is always what is it good for? - A question which would abolish the rose and be answered triumphantly by the cabbage.
James Russell Lowell
Listen carefully to first criticisms made of your work. Note just what it is about your work that critics don't like

The 101 Guide To Digital Painting Hardware #1An input device for a computer seems to be a no-brainer, mouse, trackpad, keyboard all there but ...err, wait what? A graphic tablet is missing or should I get a pen display?The 101 Guide To Digital Painting Hardware #14 months ago in Personal More Like This
This guide is based on my personal experience and opinion, I´m in no way affiliated with any of these companies and I try to be as objective as possible.
As instructor but also on conventions, I often get asked what hardware, tablet or other input devices I use and what I´d recommend for someone just starting out.
Until 2013 I´d nearly always have said: "Go get a Wacom", but the competition and the tablet market is developing so fast that there are more products out there than ever and artists can be overwhelmed by the sheer volume and opinions.
I will just offer some options and add a comment or two that may help you decide.
Let´s stick with the basics:
