Best of April 2013Here are some of the best pictures I found in April, 2013. They do not appear in my Square-features, that's why I do a monthly feature for all those great artists on deviantART who submitted no-square pictures. Enjoy!Best of April 20132 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Collection: HandsCollection: Hands10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
A subject’s hands are the make–up artist’s nightmare. But a subject’s hands are the artist’s delight. All the lines, scars or arthritic bumps are a road map of our lives. The smooth or rough of the skin indicates a life of labor or leisure (or, at least, cerebral tasks). The gesticulations of the hands, captured by the alert and sensitive artist, can often articulate so much more than mere words.
“Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts.”
– William Shakespeare

My Characters can be found:
>>>> HERE <<<<
These can be used to help determine characters who would be seen together.
Any character that fights for good or is attuned to the light.
Any character of Evil, hate, or has a life of darkness. Can be depressed, vengeful or jealous.
Probably will be a popular one, pretty self explanatory too. Any character that likes to show off their body a bit, enjoys sex, has high sexual prowess. Does not need to be nude to be in this category, and being nude doesn't automatically fit here. Also if there isn't a nude drawing of the character in my gallery please don't draw them

Web Sharpener Update V0.8Hello,Web Sharpener Update V0.83 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've updated my Web Sharpener Script for Photoshop to version 0.8. You will need Photoshop CS2 or higher to run it.
New features ...
*) Improved downscaling algorithm that uses more than 2 steps now and considers the image size. If you liked the previous algorith, you can select this option as well.
*) Better edge masking to prevent halos more efficiently.
*) Some bug fixes.
Here's the link ... http://www.andreasresch.at/upload/WebSharpener.zip
The ZIP-files includes both a German and an English version of the script plus the documentation in PDF-format.
As there are quite a few medium format and large format shooters here - the new script works significantly better with larger images now.
By request I also created a version that runs without dialog so that you can use it to run in a batch. Here's what you have to do ...
*) The script is included in the "English" folder of the ZIP-file.</b>
*) Open the script in a text editor.

"When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: 'If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right.' It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know t

How to avoid a creative block / find your styleI have been thinking about this a lot over the years. And have also been asked these questions quite often. Mostly by beginners and a pro here and thereHow to avoid a creative block / find your style4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's what i came up with
If you have a creative block - don't know what to make, have no ideas, are tempted to borrow somebody else's design or redo your own - try this:
- listen to your favorite song and recreate it. translate the sounds, the dynamic, distortions etc. into shapes, colors, textures. listen to the song 50 times if necessary. it can be done and you can do it!
- translate another piece of art into jewelry - go to a museum, browse through photos and paintings on dA, google couture dresses, whatever you like (just not jewelry). find one that you love and make your own smashing piece of jewelry!
- limit yourself with shape or color or materials:
a) pick a shape and make 3 completely different pieces of jewelry based on that shape. use whatever colors and materials you like
b) make 3 completely different pi
PE: How to Draw Anime ClothesPE: How to Draw Anime Clothes8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Whilst these ideas are not unique or special to anime and can be used in other styles, the focus of this article will be the anime style. Clothing is a diverse topic that has a lot of shared principals that can be used.
The fibres that are used to make up a fabric sample are diverse and can be used to make a number of different fabric types. Using a simple search for a type of fabric yields hundreds of images that give you an idea on how it bends and folds and flows.
Take for example these sample top materials:
Mix of polyester and cotton, leather, silk, cotton, polyester-cotton, polyester spray jacket.
They all have different fold patterns and interact with the light source differently. The leather, silk and spray jacket are quite shiny on their ridges.
The hoodie and t-shirt have less rigid folds, whilst the cotton shirt has sharp angles.

Who hasn't heard of myths or legend of the past ? who hasn't wondered if they were real or just a story to put kids to sleep ? Who hasn't had an interest as slight as it may have been in those stories that populated ancient civilizations and are still alive today ?
In the past years people have started asking themselves questions at the light of new discoveries and the gaps in the classical history taught to us. To many questions stay unanswered and we are left to choose between believing or laughing at those records from an ancient time.
For my second contest i chose to go for this theme as i find it
