Collection: Alternative Universe

Mon Dec 15, 2014, 5:07 PM
44-img-00 by techgnotic







Alternative Universe


The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”


Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as single individuals on a world teeming with over 7 billion people. Now we face the possibility of being “one” in a reality of 7 billion separate universes (well, at least eleven). A bit overwhelming, but it does afford endless opportunities for artists’ imaginings of how different these worlds might be.

Themed Art Competition!

SMASH! wouldn’t be the same without our Themed Art Competition, now would it? So step right up, get your thinking caps on and get that creative spark on fire! This year we want to see your imaginations run wild and take our lovable mascots to places they’ve never been. This year’s theme is…

Fairytale SMASH!

Did Cyrus and Skadi grow up reading fairy tales like we did? Well, they’ve discovered a few Grimm tales and want to export some of them to their home planet. Help them illustrate these tales for their people and work them into one! Do what you will with the fairytale – reverse it, twist it, flip it on its head. As long as our sibling mascots are involved (and that we can tell it’s a fairytale), let the magic come alive!

Prizes

To be announced. Watch this space for wishing stars!

Submission Guidelines

• To enter your artwork for Fairytale SMASH!, please bring your art submission to the art room and speak with one of our staff. You will be provided with a competition entry form to fill out and you will be in.

• Traditional medium artworks or digital prints are welcome!

• So you’re not inundated with ideas on what tales to pick, here’s a list of fairy tales that we’ll accept into the competition:

    ◦Snow White
    ◦Cinderella
    ◦The Frog Prince
    ◦Rapunzel
    ◦Hansel and Gretel
    ◦Puss in Boots
    ◦Sleeping Beauty
    ◦Little Red Riding Hood
    ◦Three Little Pigs
    ◦The Little Mermaid

• Entries can either be an illustration or sequential artwork (i.e., comic-book style).

• Be aware that your submission will be on display at the event. This may involve tape or thumbtacks, so we highly recommend that you bring a copy of your submission for display purposes. Please bring along the original for verification.

• Our judging criteria for Fairytale SMASH! are as follows:

    ◦ Execution: Technical expertise and mastery of the medium.
    ◦ Concept: Originality of your concept in adherence to the given theme.
    ◦ Aesthetics: How well your skill is applied to illustrate your concept and the overall visual appeal of your work.

Submissions close on Saturday, August 10 at 3:30pm.

Winners will be announced on the day.

Please keep in mind our art competition terms and conditions when deciding to participate.

SMASH! 2013 Themed Art Competition

Digital Art Competition!

Are you looking for the DeviantArt competition? Well, the digital landscape moves on and we’ve broadened the scope this year to include all online submissions. But wait, what’s the difference between this and our Themed Art Competition? The answer: You don’t have to attend SMASH! to enter! (Not that we encourage that, far from it!) If you can’t make it on SMASH! day, or you’d prefer a different theme, then this is the competition for you!

ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!

Our worst fears have come to life! The Zombie Apocalypse is upon us. What awaits our beloved mascots Cyrus and Skadi as they try to outwit the zombie horde? Help them survive the apocalypse and show us how you think they would face the walking dead! Are they running for their lives? Are they survivors running on supplies? Or have they found the cure under the umbrella of a large evil corporation? Whatever zombie cliché there is, we want you to show our mascots the meaning of Double Tap.

Prizes

To be announced! Watch this space for brains!

Submission Guidelines

• To enter your artwork for ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, please save your artwork as a PNG or JPG. Attach it to your email entry and send it off to our Arts Event Coordinator.

• Although this is a digital art competition, it doesn’t mean you can’t use a traditional medium - both digital artworks and scanned traditional artworks are welcome!

• Entries must be of reasonable size. Please keep dimensions below 3000x3000 pixels or below 5MB (megabytes). SMASH! reserves the right to resize your artwork if you do   not comply with this rule. If you do not wish for your artwork to be resized, we cannot accept your entry.

• Please note that in submitting your artwork for ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, you agree to allow the hosting of your entry on the SMASH! website.

• Our judging criteria for ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE are as follows:

   ◦ Execution: Technical expertise and mastery of the medium.

“The wind within the trees was a whisper that spoke our tongue, and the stars in the sky shone on the gods of our heavens, alight and alive. What is science against alchemy, we asked them, what is coincidence against prophecy? Kings and beggars stand equal as fates unfold and worlds awake, as heroes rise and deities fall… among nymphs and mermaids, against harpies and sorceries, we must stand as one. Will you brave the lands of myth and legend with us?”

Suggest a DD stamp by Thiefoworld









Need Help?



What is a Daily Deviation?

The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.

A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.

The staff/volunteer members responsible for selecting submissions for the daily feature often are open to suggestions and individual community members may direct their attention by noting the appropriate Community Volunteer or staff member with a direct link to the deviation which you are suggesting and a brief description about why you think the work in question should be featured.

FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?
FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?



How To Suggest a Daily Deviation:

:pointr:-Find a deviation on deviantART that you would like to see featured.

:pointr:-Take notice of the deviations category. Example: Traditional, Digital etc

:pointr:-Find the appropriate deviantART Gallery Moderator that Moderates the category that the deviation is in.
Links are provided in this Blog that show every Moderator and their Respective Sections.

:pointr:-Send a note to the Gallery Moderator. Title: "Daily Deviation Suggestion" or something to that effect

:pointr:-Make sure you paste the link and/or thumbnail of the deviation you are suggesting in the note (preferably a thumbnail)
The "thumb" code is on the right side of each image description. Copy the thumb code, it will show a thumbnail of the image when pasted in the note.

:pointr:-Leave a short description of why you think the piece should become a DD if you wish.

:pointr:-Send note


Some things you should know

Anyone can suggest a daily deviation. Suggesting someones work for a DD could give that artist the opportunity to reach a much larger audience and gain more exposure. It only takes a few minutes, and it will really make someones day. Try to suggest one as often as possible!

Remember that as a general rule recipients must wait at least 3 months from receiving their last DD before they are eligible for a new one. So if a person has received a DD in the last 3 months, wait a while before suggesting another of their works.

Certain Gallery Moderators and Staff may have specific details on how to suggest Daily Deviations to them. I suggest that you scan their front page for any specific information before suggesting one.

Moderators do receive a lot of suggestions, so not every piece that you suggest may become a DD.
Also keep in mind that due to the sheer volume of notes that Gallery Moderators receive, you may or may not receive a reply.
So be remain both persistent and patient, and your diligence will pay off!
Remember that you are doing this as an act of kindness.

Force Awakens by skyrace











It seems the Force has truly Awoken, at least it has here on DeviantArt.


It has been one week since the teaser trailer for the first of the Disney owned Star Wars movies was released. Twitter and Facebook nearly broke under the deluge of postings of the trailer and frame by frame commentary of it. Each commentator hoping to spot something everyone else had missed.






Meanwhile on the far distant planet of DeviantArt, the community was drawing and designing up a storm of material. Where else could you possibly go and see hundreds of pieces of awesome art be rendered and posted in just one week?


The hopes and dreams of two generations are hoping for this feature to respark the wonder the original film inspired back in 1977. Based on what we have seen posted here on DeviantArt this week we can only presume those hopes and dreams are going to keep growing.


Now, we know you saw the trailer. Admit it, more than once.







Everyone of course is asking the simplest of questions, why is the Imperial Stormtrooper on the run?






We won’t really know until well into next year… and that’s way too long to wait because we are the spoiled children of modern generations accustomed to instant gratification in all things pop. So we have for you a dilemma, a conundrum, A CHALLENGE.


Do you have the creative mind of a “Star Wars” imagineer? When you see the young man, sweating, breathing heavily, running in the desert of some nameless planet, running from something… do scenarios begin taking shape in your head? Do questions demand answers? Is he actually a stormtrooper, or is he disguised to escape stormtrooper captivity? Is he a deep undercover agent of the Federation who’s just had his cover blown? Is he a once loyal soldier of the Empire who saw something he shouldn’t have seen, something that now has him trying to defect to the Federation, something that has generated his death warrant?








Open your mind to the all–powerful creative storytelling streams of The Force, and write a few paragraphs of the story you see developing… because a year is just too long to wait.

















Your Thoughts




  1. Can you name who said all the above quotes? For extra brownie points, name the movie they’re from.
  2. What is your favorite Star Wars quote?

Interstellar

Fri Oct 17, 2014, 5:23 PM
Interstellar by MachiavelliCro











Who needs enemy aliens — when the oddities of space travel itself are so mind–blowing?






A
s the following gallery of landscapes of deviantARTist–imagined other worlds well attests to — the natural desire of humans to explore and discover knows no bounds, not even the limits of the Earth’s atmospheric shell. Whatever’s out there, beyond our galaxy: we want to put eyes on it. But space travel presents quite a problem.



Even spaceships much faster than anything we’re technologically capable of engineering today would mean voyages to the closest inhabited or habitable world lasting not years — but generations. Exploring new worlds might mean signing up for excursions that would be “one way” and completed by our great–grandchildren, and that’s if we can figure out how to protect ourselves from space radiation. And for shorter outings with a return ticket to Earth? The “twin paradox” is the curious space–time phenomenon of returning to Earth just a few years later and older (by our perspective), only to find that all our friends and family have died of old age.







In the upcoming film, Interstellar, Christopher Nolan takes a break from fighting hostile space aliens to return the “thought–provoking” vein of sci–fi pioneered by 2001 and The Right Stuff. Nolan has expressed a desire to return to the sense of wonder in intergalactic “exchanges” exemplified by Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind. While Nolan was accused of crypto-neoconservative sympathies for his “Dark Trilogy” of Batman films, his Interstellar will now no doubt provoke the rage of climate change deniers by positing a climate–change devastated barely habitable Earth in the near future. A space mission via “wormholes” must first locate a habitable replacement for Earth and then race back to Earth for an organized exodus before the “twin paradox” accelerates the planet dying along with everyone the astronauts knew in life. Nolan’s focus is the human psyche’s necessary adaptations to the “future” paradoxes that we all might be facing sooner than we think.



Our future survival will depend upon how well we can evolve our perceptions of time and being.



In an
Empire interview
Christopher Nolan:







I do liken [Interstellar] to the blockbusters I grew up with as a kid, A lot of them by Spielberg. […] there’s a great spirit to films like Close Encounters and Jaws that I really wanted to try and capture, because I haven’t seen it in a very long time.”






You can’t pretend 2001 doesn’t exist when you're making Interstellar, But the other film I’d have to point to is The Right Stuff. […] It’s one of the great American movies and people don’t quite realize how great it is–probably because it’s four hours long!”














Your Thoughts







  1. Do you have any doubts about Climate Change?




  2. Do you believe there are other inhabitable worlds in our Universe?











Who needs enemy aliens — when the oddities of space travel itself are so mind–blowing?

so im gonna be starting to make some tutorials soon
before that you should look up some informations


you probably noticed that in my work it is often hard to distinguish if im using a zbrush model or just painined it all in photoshop


reason for that is simple.

my realism rendering is greatly based on 3 d rendering processes.

by this i mean as i learned 3d i became aware of the stuff we usually visually take for granted.

qualities of material, importance of reflectivity, ambient occlusion, and subsurface scattering.

to any 3d  artist these are everyday terms, while 2d artists usually paint them without often even being aware of wheat they are really doing

for instance , a 3d artist will at any given point use 2 types of shadows. cast shadows from a direct lightsource, and ambient occlusion shadows which naturally appear  more intensively  the closer planes of an object are together.

i can get into this  and make it a long discussion , but easier way is to google some ambient occlusion  images and examine them hard

its not a hard thing to figure out.

then once you did ta proper  ambient occlusion   on your painting, you proceed  to cast direct light shadows.



then there is reflectivity. at any given point you are drawing characters or objects in an environment. important reminder is that environment exists even beyond the visible frame of the picture

and it reflects all over your character, amount of reflection of course dictated by the reflective nature of the surface.

look up hdri  on google


and then there are material qualities one of the usually  overseen ones and simply drawn  from a reference without even realizing it, is subsurface scattering. it is a quality you will find in different materials, among which are basically all organics. google subsurface scattering.

after you get informed on this  you will understand my videos even better once we get to spamming them :)
