Ten Tips for Photographing Food1) Set the Table...Ten Tips for Photographing Food2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In the image above, claremanson not only photographs something that looks enticingly delicious and creative, but she has additionally set the scene. She's made up the 'table' so to speak, so that it compliments and even enhances the Food that she's photographing. Looking carefully at your setting is a fantastic way of making your Food look good and unique. It's cheap too, just look at using glasses, sometimes with liquid in them, colourful tablecloths, napkins or any other items that might suit your image. Within cookery books these days, images that 'set the scene' are becoming increasingly more popular and widely used.
2) Play with your Food...
Here, LADYW has not just made a 'salad' or an arrangement of food. She's looked carefully at how she can arrange her food in the most creative and complimentary way. Using shapes and colour to make something look good
New Basic Foal . . . and here's the pattern test for the new basic foal. It stands five and half inches high at printout size, compared to the ten inch adult mare. The construction is exactly the same as the bigger ponies, the main differences are in proportions. The foal has a smaller body, shorter, thicker legs, a shorter muzzle and a larger head. I might finish this one off as a Lyra, although the color is a little more greenish than teal.New Basic Foal2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.As an artist, you probably will be approached by various people over time. Some may be looking for commissions, others will most likely be looking for free art.Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here are some handy resources concerning the "free art"-people. First of all, there's this handy flowchart called "Should I Work For Free?.
If they say they'll pay you with:
-Eventual cut of the profit when profits are made
-No pay, since artists "shouldn't be sell-outs, but draw for fun"
Then run for the hills and get away as fast as you can.
Because if it's for a game, a comic or another for-profit project, the most normal response should be "Fuck you. Pay me." (worded politer, though that goes without saying).
Spec-work? -- Fuck you. Pay me.
"We don't have the budget for 20 sprite-sheets, but we'll sell this game and your name will be in the credits!" -- Fuck you. Pay me.

Invisibility and the end of EarthHello and welcome to the newest round of: random musings of an astrophysicist.Invisibility and the end of Earth2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Invisibility is a popular ability in science fiction and fantasy. There is magical invisibility via spells, potions or cloaks. And there is technologically achieved invisibility in many forms. But if we were to ask the laws of physics, what would actually happen if we did turn invisible?
First, there are two ways to achieve true invisibility. Either light goes through you without any contact, or it goes around you.
And that's the problem. If light doesn't interact with you, then how do you see? No light falls into your eyes either, so you are blind. An interaction always works both ways. The world is getting no visual information that you are there, and in turn you get no information about the world.
But it is worse. If you were to turn perfectly invisible right now, you would pretty much explode and the particles that made up your body would fall into the Earth like little ghosts.

Use your art to help spread awareness for this Vulnerable Species
The Polar Bear, the ice bear, an apex predator of the north arctic circle. The largest of all bear species, this bear is a mighty carnivore. But as the ice the bears so desperately depend on melts at an alarming rate, disaster spells out in the murky water. Rising temperatures cause ice to melt, diminishing the bear's home and chances at catching prey. When the ice melts completely, polar bears will meet extinction below the freezing waters. Their population number ranges between 25,000-20,000 distributed among the nineteen subspecies.
What is International Polar Bear Day?
International Polar Bear Day(IPBD) is day to celebrate and spread awareness for the Arctic's Polar Bear
Our goal is to fill DeviantArt with Polar Bear themed art on February 27th

It's been quite a while since I put together a journal, but it needed to happen since I'm holding my first ever competition.
The competition will be split into two categories, drawing a full artwork, and colouring one of my own line artworks. Of course the people who draw will have a longer period of time to work on their artworks ...And the more entries the better. *hint hint, nudge nudge* XDD <3
Competition 1 - Drawing
So all you have to do is simply create an artwork of any medium (Digital, traditional, etc) of one or more of my original characters. Please stay away from anything too risque (Keep it PG~), but feel free to add other characters including your own OC's and existing characters from anime, etc.
You can pick any characters out of this list- (Sorry about some of the pictures being so old. I've been concentrating mostly on my big project which i have going on)
