Need faces?We've already had "Need references?" and "Need textures?", time for something else. This actually is about references again, but about these more specified ones. Emotions. How many times have you wondered why is that the faces you draw look as empty as dead? Depicting moods can be a very hard task. Try sketching yourself (yes, a mirror would be a nice thing to have in this case), pull faces at diffrent angles, change light. And take a look at these below.

Tutorial series: backgroundMagical-moments asked me to write some tutorials for her group :iconbeyond-borders:. So I will try to create a series of small tutorials covering some basic techniques and tips for taking close-up photographs. I haven't been 'in the field' for long, but in that short while I did learn a lot by doing. Although I'm not a professional or an expert, I hope I can teach other beginners and hobbyists new tricks!Tutorial series: background3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For this tutorial I will focus on backgrounds. When taking a flower or still life close-up, you want the object to be the focus of your capture. So one of the most important things you have to keep in mind is what's in the background. Other objects or a background with many different colours or patterns may distract the attention off of the object. So avoid textured walls, garden chairs, buckets, tree trunks and so on! Try to pick out background colours which complement the colour of your object, but is lighter or darker than the object. The first
A few simple photography tipsThought Id share a few simple yet effective photography tips for the creative photographer.A few simple photography tips2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Macro done easy
Set your lens to its closest focusing range and move physically towards the subject until it is sharp.
If you are using longer lenses it really helps to lay down and hold the camera and lens almost like you are shooting a gun, and remember your breathing when shooting.
This is also a great technique for bokeh shots, with a 50 mm at its closest focusing range and background further away you will blow the background to bits.
Donīt be stationary
It is very easy to put down a tripod and just stand on the same spot shooting, instead try moving around a bi, experiment with angles, left, right, high, low until you hit that perfect angle for the scene.
Slow the shutter
You donīt always need a ND filter to block out light to get even slower shutter speed, you can either use this technique with your hand or better with a cardboard (black if you got colored one).

About Project Porkchop
The DeviantArt Experience can sometimes quickly become the quintessential example of that most frustrating problem: too much of a good thing. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to peruse the thousands of submissions and postings of artistic innovation, creativity and sheer beauty that are generated everyday.
So thank you for ProjectPorkchop!
Astralseed, an Icelandic deviant artist with a penchant for equines, including Quirlicorns (a breed of unicorns), has made our busy lives so much easier with ProjectPorkchop, a feature she started on her DeviantArt page.

Help out?Hey guys,Help out?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don't usually do things like this, but I really need your help. I'm Monika, a 17 year old girl from Australia.
5 years ago, I got sick. I was diagnosed with Chonic Lyme Disease 3 years later, at the end of 2012. Having a diagnosis, I thought "Great! I'll finally be able to get better." But it didn't exactly go like that. I had a bad reaction to the antibiotics, which nearly caused my death.
Since then, we have tried a lot of different things, but nothing is really working.
As you can imagine, the medication and treatments and medical bills are piling up, and my parents are struggling financially.
Of course, I feel like it's all my fault, and I'm trying this in an attempt to help them continue to pay for my medication, and help me get over this horrible disease.
Any donation would mean the absolute world to me, and could bring me one step closer to recovering.
Even just sharing the link and getting this fundraiser noticed

I'm talking to you, pervertsI think it's finally time I address one of the things I hate the most about deviantART, perverts.I'm talking to you, perverts1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Actually, to be fair, it's not just limited to deviantART, but rather the internet as a whole, where if you vaguely resemble a female, these guys will be on you like a magnet.
I've been on deviantART ever since I was 14 and I, like many of my friends on here, have had my fair share of internet perverts. I won't get into legalities, but I've seen and heard many absurd things. I've had men blatantly ask me for photos of my tits- and that's only the beginning.
Now, I do not speak on behalf of my entire gender, I am speaking only for myself. I am not your average dumb bitch hungry for a shallow compliment and cheap attention.
For any internet perverts that might be reading this, let me tell you a few things about myself.I attend one of the top research universities in the entire world.
At this prestigious university, I am double majoring in chemistry and biology.
I am very good at what I do.

A quick feature, as summer winds down and the change comes our way. I'm living lean, watching the people and their things cross the highway, and missing the blast of beauty and inspiration I've been faced with, then separated from. All in good time, Love. The static grows louder everyday as the reality of paper and people stacks in my subconscious, but about decade ago I learned a skill that is both timeless and priceless. When you look around you and you're not inspired, and no one is
