Goals, Ambitions and Commissions (A Lending Hand)IMPORTANT UPDATE 6/6/14: This will be the most important update for this journal. By the time August comes, i will have exceeded my goal of $200 in sales by $106!!! Whether those who bought a print was to support my dream or just enjoyed the art that i provided, thank you so much for buying something from me. Knowing that there are people out there that like my work so much that they're willing to pay for it is an incredible feeling. I've made some connections through this that i would have never had the opportunity without. On top of that, i got a job as an usher for the theater that's opening across the street! I start training next Saturday (14th). I'm both nervous and excited, mainly nervous because of my social anxiety, but this will be a great experience to help me with my filmmaking career having to be around so many people. Due to this job that i will be starting, (and also that i will be getting most of the essential gear that i need bGoals, Ambitions and Commissions (A Lending Hand)8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Stock and Resources UpdatesLETS TALK ABOUT STOCK "REQUESTS"Stock and Resources Updates2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Every year we get excited, eager, passionate new stock providers entering our small but growing community, and every year these new stock models in particular get targeted by a small group of "requesters" Those of us who have been on the site for more than a few years recognise the types of "requests" I'm talking about and know to absolutely avoid them at all costs, but its something that I've seen more and more regularly over the last few months, and its definitely a concern.
There are standard "pose requests" that are NOT requested for the "artist" to work from. They are simply asking you to take photos of yourself in provocative poses so they can get off to your stock.
Firstly - please keep in mind that the images you are providing to artists are STOCK ART - they are first and foremost designed to provide artists with useable, useful references, either for traditional art, or digital art or whatever media they choose to create
How to Develop Your Artistic StyleI started dA back in 2006 doing simple digital photography. I had never taken a class and I had no knowledge on photography. My only formal training in art has been in water colour and pastels. These days I’m into photomanipulation. How did I get into it? Simple: deviantArt.How to Develop Your Artistic Style7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You’ve probably heard many people calling dA a wonderful community. It is, but it’s so much more than a community. DeviantArt is an art school. Yes, there are people who sign up and then put up masterpieces of work, but if you dig deeper into the community you see something amazing: progress. This is what makes dA great. To me, deviantArt has been my art school. I’ve learned from so many deviants on so many different forms of expression. And I’ve made friends.
There are some complaints about dA. Those are usually found in any community. Things usually based around generated artwork. (Too much anime/anthro/myspace shots and so on.) I think a majority of these complaints could be cut dow

Custom Breaking Bad FiguresCustom Breaking Bad Figures3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last year I sculpted up a few portraits of Bryan Cranston as Walter White from my favorite show "Breaking Bad". I was finally able to put the finishing touches on 3 custom figures of Walt, all of which were given to the creators of the show this past week.
It's been a helluva lot of fun, and a tremendous thrill to get to meet the artists behind this terrific show that has been so inspiring to me. Kinder people you will not meet!
So here's a look at the finished custom figures. These were pieced together from various sources, using Hot Toys bodies, and clothes I found on ebay and then altered. The heads were all painted by some talented friends of mine, and they really brought Walt to life. It's been a lot of work to try and piece these together in my free time, but I really enjoyed doing it.
ps- A random winner was chosen from my last giveaway. I'll do another giveaway in the coming months, I'm sure. thanks!
Photomanipulation FAQsEverything you wanted to know . . . And MORE!Photomanipulation FAQs2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This journal will (I hope) serve as a one-stop source for basic information about photomanipulation. As always, if you have questions, I will do my best to answer them or, if I don't know the answer, refer you to someone who can help you.
What is photomanipulation?
Photomanipulation is art that uses 2 or more photographic elements combined to make something new. It does not include 3D elements. For reference, see:

To make it plain, a critique offers thoughts and advice for improving a piece of literature or art. Cri

The idea, once again, is that we are creating a “fractured” fairytale in which we will be twisting a well-known story into something completely different. Can you take the story and put your own alternative spin on it?
“Fractured” (Twisted) “Beauty and the Beast”
The moment it all went wrong. The night an “old beggar woman” was turned away from a warm hearth and a curse that backfired and twisted the world in a way nobody - not even the old beggar was ever expecting.....

Lighting: Tips and Tricks ~ artist interviewsHeyLighting: Tips and Tricks ~ artist interviews2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As a complement to our educational challenge on lighting http://fav.me/d59hlpx , we've asked a few fellow deviants to tell us how they work with lighting. Hopefully some of you that may still be struggling with lighting can pick up a few tips and tricks from their answers!
1) How do you usually go about creating the light in your pieces?
I work the light after I have settled the light source and all the elements that are going to be in my piece, so this way I know color and direction of the light. I'm going to try to summarize the process, is basically various layers converted into clipping masks for the outline glow, I use soft brushes first and contour the edges, and then I use harder and smaller brushes to get the light sharper. Then for the skin and clothes a bunch more of layers where I paint the light, again, varying the size and hardness to achieve the final result (big/soft brushes
