Tutorial Time?So guys - sometimes people ask me to make a tutorial about this or that, and I'm always like "Eeeh, maybe one day, if more people are interested..." Because tutorials are always a sh***y ton of work (like: double work: you don't only work on your picture, but you have to keep your tut up to date meanwhile...)Tutorial Time?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So now it's tutorial time, I'm going to do one or two, and you are going to tell me what you want to know - like, something about manes and tail for example? Or light composition? Just let me know - PLUS, this is IMPORTANT:
I'm ONLY doing a tutorial if MORE THAN 10 PEOPLE are interested, meaning this journal entry needs more than 10 comments, without mine being counted. I'm not going to do a tutorial for one person, in that case it's easier if I do another JM and you come and watch (;

The whole thing about Copyright...Copyright.The whole thing about Copyright...8 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's a tricky little thing, right?
Not really. Copyright is quite easy to understand. Despite this, few people actually truly understand the full meaning of copyright.
Over my years here on DA, I've seen several people that don't quite understand what copyright is. Some times they listen to what they are told when you try to explain, sometimes they don't.
I've thought about it for years, but finally decided to actually bring up the issue.
Copyright is something that – like the name suggests – protects your original work. Weather it is a photo or painting or something else. It is your right to own your own original work.
Copyright applies to all things that you upload to the internet. You don't need to put a big stamp on your photo to have it protected by copyright. Unless anything else is stated, full copyright applies to the specific photo. A picture is not "Public Domain" just because it lacks a watermark or a signature. A copyright stamp is not mandatory if you want somet

This journal is not so important, just wanted to wish everyone a happy Easter ^w^
Are you gonna do anything for Easter? (Or what have you done, if you read this journal by the end of the day/later)
Normally, I don't do much for Easter, I just eat some chocolate.. This year I'm going somewhere though. I'm going to my friend's house with my parents and my bro, and we'll eat there 'n stuff. (Lots of chocolate l'D )
And since I'm going there I won't really be on later today xD There's some drawings in progress though, I will most likely finish ~louli9559's prize tomorrow or later that week, I've also got to draw some gifts, and I want to draw some personal art.
hmm well I guess that's all for now, I don't think I got to mention anything more xD
Happy Easter again, and see ya ^w^
Know your Basics - TexturesThere are a lot of tutorials out there on how to create / photograph texture as well as how to use them on a technical level, but the question of why and when to use textures is rarely touched. This article wants to fill that gap and therefore looks at texures from a slightly different perspective.Know your Basics - Textures9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures in Manips as you know them
For a photomanipulator, the first thing that comes to mind when hearing the word "texture" are images that can be used in soft light or overlay mode to texture a manipulation or parts thereof. What most manipulators therefore have in mind, are images like the following:
Beautiful textures, sure, and useful, too, but have you ever thought of doing more with them than the aforementioned overlays? And have you ever considered using other kinds of textures, too?

AoE is Looking for People Who Will Donate Prizes!
~Edit by =bubbleEAU and ~Turtrox
Here is some info for those who are interested:
What are We Looking For?
-Points; We are always in the need of points. If you are interested in providing points for contest, please keep them until the next contest, OR donate to =Scotston or =bubbleEAU or ~Turtrox and put in the donation comments: For the Next AoE Contest!
-Commissions of Any Kind; BUT do give a Commission you must be part of the group. Also, there will only be about 10 Commission slots per contest so we do not get an overload. But, when I say any kind, this is to the winner's discretion. Please note that you ca give a limit, but if your going to be super-nick-picky, don't say you want to.
-Features; these are simple but help to get recognition for the winners. Try to ask your friends or watchers to join in a feature chain!
