Fantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 30Happy New Year To All.Fantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 301 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artists
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

I'm still collecting all works involving Yaroslav and Sif. Please keep in mind that English isn't my native language. But I will try my best to develop their story.
Also, huge thanks to my best friend and co-author :iconkimir-ra: We combined our worlds and created a new exciting story!
Yaroslav is one of the four ancient gods who once took a part in creating a world, where Taho rules for now.
Yar is responsible for the destruction of worlds, which are listed as 'finished their life'. He is often assists at the wars and cataclysms, which foreshadow the destruction of worlds. His has stealthy and quiet character, he is silent and rarely seen in anger.
He has no magic as such, excluding congenital peculiarities - his presence has a detrimental effect on every creature. All who are close to him die sooner or later. Therefore, Yaroslav lives alon
Important Update Regarding sxc.hu Stock and ArtI'm sure many of you are aware of the situation with using stock from the website sxc.hu. I wanted to bring you the final word on the use of their stock in photomanipulations. (Keep in mind that they should never be used to create premade backgrounds.) Our Community Volunteer Aeirmid has shared the latest update from the sxc.hu's version of the "help desk."Important Update Regarding sxc.hu Stock and Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Jade received an email as part of a mass BCC email to the dA users who expressed concern over the situation. Here is a quote from the response:
"1. The rights granted by sxc.hu license are very limited and specific. You may not use sxc.hu images in photo-manipulations or digital collages. Furthermore, you cannot create any derivate works with the use of sxc.hu images. There appears to be a common miscomprehension and some appear to believe that 'if the use is not prohibited then it is permitted' - this is not true. It is clearly stated in the license agreement All rights are reserved unless otherwise gran

Pugbun vs Tailcat contest - 20000points prize poolPugbun vs Tailcat contest - 20000points prize pool2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The loathsome creature devoid of honor that goes by the name of Tailcat has crossed the line! This vile creature listens to lame music, doesn't do the dishes, and what's worst of all, doesn't put crayons back on their place. This and many other breaches of good manners escalated to the point at which I was forced to declare war! Stand by my side my brothers and sisters! For music! For crayons! For the dishes!
The peace between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia lasted for many years but it's over now! Pick a side and help your army defeat the enemy once and for all!
If your bravery and artistic input will be enough to harm our opponent you'll be handsomely rewarded for your deeds!
If you are caught collaborating with the enemy though, you'll be thrown into the poisonous hamster pit!
Your task is to take part in the war between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia. To do so you have to create a piece of artwork that dep

The possibilities of digital painting and digital art in general are almost infinite. There is basically nothing you cannot do as long as you just know how to approach it. Yet an abundance of programs and tools has both advantages and disadvantages. Knowing what to favour and what to avoid can be both a huge time saver and help you sidestep frustration.
What we will focus on in this article are some basic tools and techniques of digital painting; we'll try to root out pitfalls and see how to avoid them. Mind that all of the points mentioned below aren't rules carved in stone; there are always cases where breaking the rules can be much more fruitful for a certain effect than following them too strictly. With time and practice you will gain good judgment over when to follow the guidelines and when to leave them aside.
Note: Names of certain tools might vary depending on t

Harley Quinn Contest
In case you haven't heard yet, DC is holding a contest to hire fresh young artists to help work on the new Harley Quinn series. http://www.dccomics.com/node/305151 This is fantastic news for a lot of artists, as "breaking in" to the big comic book companies can be extraordinarily difficult to do and this helps level the playing field. However, the way they've chosen to hold the contest is to have everyone submit 4 illustrations based on 4 separate scripts... all of which depict Harley Quinn as suicidal and trying to kill herself "comically."
Now first off, I get the fact that Harley Quinn is part of the "Suicide Squad," and that these illustrations are likely poking fun at that. However I feel that fact falls on it's face since the term "Suicide Squa

In this toolbox you will find helpful tips for digital typography. For those of you new to the topic, let's start with a short explanation
Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible.
Pretty simple, eh? Basically as you are reading this you are "reading typography". What I will refer to in this article is digital artistic typography, though. This is not the everday typography you see on street signs, books or on websites.
It can be anything! Which is amazing and scary at the same time

PE: Importance of AnatomyThe importance of anatomy.PE: Importance of Anatomy2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Understanding anatomy is crucial to many aspects of your art.
You'll notice that anatomy is essential for drawing. It becomes difficult to accurately draw a complex pose, or even a simple one, if you don't understand what's under all that skin or fur, or even bark. Knowing how everything fits together is important.
Once you notice where that certain muscle is, shading and form become much more accurate and more natural. Knowing why the nose and eyes fall where they do make it much easier to draw from memory, and nail that natural look you were going for.
Learning the anatomy of the subject you're going to draw is quite important, and will definitely help you on several levels.
It's also easier to drawing sequences of movement. One will know what connects to what, and how they move. What is possible, and what isn't. (Range of motion)
Drawing people and other animals can be intimidating. Once you have a solid foundation, it's much easier

How to: Scroll BoxesTransferred from eCSSercise.How to: Scroll Boxes3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the first part of a tutorial series that I will be working on in the future and will be released whenever I find the time for it.
In order to know how I can make them better and to make it easier for you to understand the things I am talking about it would be appreciated if you would leave some feedback!
For this tutorial series I am explaining different elements you can create or modify with the help of CSS. The level of experience that is needed to be able to understand the tutorials can differ and will be in no order. I will try to explain the things as simple as possible though.
To create a scrollbox you don’t need much, just a box with a limited height or width in order to enforce the scrollbar. If you don’t limit the dimensions of the box it will adjust itself to the space given by the browser resolution and settings.
The limited dimension itself doesn’t create the scrollbar,

Photomanipulation walkthroughStep 1: Idea (message, composition)Photomanipulation walkthrough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You decided that you want to make a photomanipulation. But what to make? There are so many photomanipulations already out there and mostly with the same theme. So you decide you don't just want to stick a pretty girl onto a beautiful background. No you want to be original and have your manipulation portray a message everyone can relate to.
Think of things that are important to you, that lay close to your heart. They can be emotions (love, hate, sadness, anger) or experiences, hobbies (art, sports etc), things you are struggling with. Or they can be global themes like (beauty, money, economy, eating disorders, war, relationships etc.)
Of course if you choose to portray something as love there are many ways to do so. Do you want it to be a surreal depiction of love, or dark, fantasy, sci-fi, conceptual, humourous... your choice will of course decide the whole 'feel' of the image.
So choose wisely as they say.
Now that you have your theme you nee
