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 - Textures3 years 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?

About IsbjorgAbout Isbjorg4 years ago in Personal More Like This
FULL NAME: Isbjörg.
MEANING: Isbjörg's mother, Esmerelle, met her real father somewhere in the Icewind Dale. Probably, in memory of that bitterly cold place which meant so much to her she gave such "glacial" name to her daughter. "Is" - Ice, "Björg" - defense. Her foster father and others called her "Björg". And only Bishop calls her "Is" because it makes her angry
NICKNAME: Actually, no. But sometimes Bish calls her "Milady" .
ACTUAL AGE: 27-29 years old(means about 22 for half-elves).
SEXUAL PREFERENCE: heterosexual (but she did an exception for the girl once ).
MARITAL STATUS: She has(had) a "boyfriend". Yes, that stubbled, gloomy ranger. Can't say more about he

LandscapeRunner has such an amazing talent! I especially adore the backgrounds he does. These are very detailed and mischevious. His art is very eyecatching, despite some of them being dark ones, these are just too good to not look at. Both the darker ones and more colorful, happy ones have like a magical aura arround them. Stunning!

A.k.a. "That beautiful detailed flowery art style".
Art Nouveau is an art movement that was most popular between 1890 and 1910. It originated in England and France, where it spread over the last two decades of the 19th century. The origins in each respective country vary though. For example, the German "Jugendstil" was first used 1897 as criticism against cheap mass production of works from artists like Henry van de Velde. Art Nouveau was by far no consistent art movement; there were several geographical differences, although some basic characteristics stayed the same. Those key features are decorative curves and flowery elements.
All in all "Art Nouveau" constisted of divergent art movements in Europe.

ktoś mnie prosił żebym pokazała jak maluję
nie pamiętam kto
ale zrobiłam coś takiego:
to pierwsze to ołówkiem na kartce w kratkę
od drugiego są już akryle na płótnie
zdjęcia są ciemniejsze niż oryginał, bo nocą się najlepiej maluje ;__;
a tak by the way to mój zwyczaj wstawiania czegoś codziennie się skończył, bo od dzisiaj zaliczenie ze struktur wizualnych nade mną nie wisi. Dostałam czwórkę : D

About BJDs (the dolls) in general.
--- Do you make these dolls?
No. I buy them and customise them the way I want.
--- What is the name of these dolls?
They are called BJD (Ball Jointed Doll). This is kind of a refference name to reffer to this specific kind of doll.
--- Ok, BJD is a general name. So how do the nomenclature of specific BJD works?
No BJD company actually has a doll line called Ball Jointed Doll (although they do use this therm). Each company that makes BJDs call they're own dolls with di

Paranoia and a sense of impending doom.
The "party game" I just picked up should do the trick.
Each player gets a Nerf gun, the name of a target and the location in the house where they have to shoot them at some point over the course of the evening.
Nothing says "Christmas" like an assassination contract.
.....yes. I have been playing Hitman too long.

NEW FEATURE FOR AUGUST AND SEPTEMBERNEW FEATURE FOR AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Our membership is now over 3,000 and our galleries as I always write, contain even more amazing and inspirational art, which is well worth viewing.

This group also accepts and has folders for animation, designs and interfaces, deviantWEAR, pixel art and pixel animation, vector and vexel artworks, comic strips, pages and panels, matte painting, mature content, mixed media, mixed media - 3D, 3D art, commission information, tutorials and resources, announcements and also wallpaper submissions.
