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

The contest is traditional, using photo references.
So traditional only, no digital media is allowed. All traditional media is accepted, including crafts. The work doesn't have to be in colour.
I have made a folder in my gallery, where you can find the photos available as references 'Click here for the references' .

Hints and Tips #1Hello and welcome to the first instalments of 'Hints & Tips' andHints and Tips #110 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I hope these short and simple Tutorials will help boost and
inspire YOU to learn and create your own works in the many
forms and mediums that you may work in.
SO... The first Hint/Tip is -
FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)
1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat
=to show that it doesn't remove paint, here is the finished piece=
I hope this helps
10 Easy Ways to Up Your Color GameTraditional Art Week10 Easy Ways to Up Your Color Game1 week ago in Personal More Like This
Here are 10 ideas to try to have more fun with color in your art! All the examples used are works by the members of the Deviant Art community.
1. Make your OWN color wheel.
Use only primary red, yellow, and blue to create all the shades by color blending or using premade colors depending on your preference. Using your own medium to create your own reference will give you a realistic spectrum of the colors you have at your disposal.
2. Create contrast with complements.
Opposites attract attention! Red/Green, Orange/Blue, Purple/Gold. There's a reason that complementary colors are often seen on logos, sports jerseys and holiday decor. For an easy, and quick way to grab attention use two colors directly
How to Write a Proper CritiqueIts my personal opinion that deviantART has a pretty good critique system, but what good is a wonderful critique system if you dont know how to write a proper critique? Most of the critiques Ive seen around here have been pretty good, but heres a guide that I came up with just in case you need a little help. =]How to Write a Proper Critique4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Dont forget to take this article with a grain of salt.
The DosUseful informationWhat the artist has done rightWhat the artist has done wrongHow to improve
A critique should be useful.
A critique should provide useful feedback on the piece thats being critiqued. It should include what the artist has done right, what the artist has done wrong, and most importantly, how to improve.
Tell the artist what theyve done right.
Its important to let the artist know what theyre doing right not only because its useful knowing that, but because its encouraging. You never want to have your critique sound too
The stuff that artists go through.There are so many pro's and con as to being an artist, professional or as a hobby.The stuff that artists go through.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
It feels nice to be able to express yourself through something you make and when that something turns out to be looking good we get this sense of accomplishment.
Most of the time though there are bad feelings mixed with the good ones.
Not being understood. Those moments where your friends or family does not understand that you have to desire to be alone and work on your art. Those copious amounts of hours you spend working and they wonder why you wouldn't rather be outside relaxing in the sun or hang out with your friends.
The only people who will ever fully understand this are other artists or simply very understandable people. It's important they they will eventually understand so there wont be any hurt feelings. Try to explain ti as calmly and rational as you can, perhaps with using examples in terms they would understand.

I want to draw... but I don't know what.
There are a number of ways people go around dealing with this issue. Just doodling til something pops out. Working on a list of prompts. Asking people to help give them ideas. Doing an entry for a contest.... there are lots of ways of going about finding something to draw.
EH = Ernest Hemmingway
My own personal way of dealing with it, makes use of the opposite problem.
I have loads of ideas! But I have to go to bed/have no time/paper/drawing equipment.
When I have lots of ideas, as is common for me before I'm about to go to bed, or when I'm supposed to be doing something else, I write it down in my magical sparkly kitty book, AKA my Artist Journal. If I just shrug and go "I'll draw that later"

We could say that this is even more difficult than asking for feedback.
You know why?
Critiquing is self-less. Its helping someone else without getting anything back, apart from a thank-you or maybe, a critique in return. And this is why making a good critique is more difficult than writing a good feedback question many, many persons will simply give a half-thought comment. Critiquing requires time (also coming up wit

Surprise, surprise! I'm PizzaPotatoNBacon, and I'm using this tasty article labeled as "Small Surprise #2" to cover an equally surprising topic. A topic so surprising yet so indulging, you'll have no idea why they let an insane person like me write it. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce you to "Feedback Taboos"!
"What are these so called 'Feedback Taboos?" you are asking.

Giving Feedback on Articles And Tutorials
Why are they considered taboos? Because they may seem 1. too hard to do, 2. too far-fetched, or 3. just outright pointless. Sure, not doing these taboos does not seem like a big deal, but it is. They are all helpful in a whole, yet rarely done, if not done at all. Feedback, as long as it's constructive and helpful, is good, regardless of the submission it was made on.
PE: Scanning And Photographing A/M WorksIntroductionPE: Scanning And Photographing A/M Works5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
A traditional artist faces a great challenge after finishing an artwork. How do they get it on their computer to upload and show the world?
There are two main options: Scan or Photograph. Both of these come with a horde of challenges and this article is to offer a starting point for the artist to experiment and find the best solution for their art.
There are a number of type of scanners, the most common domestic peripheral being the flat bed scanner. This article focuses on using a flat bed scanner and not a wand or other type of scanner.
First things, the scanning bed must be as clean as possible, clear off dust and pet hairs before attempting to use and make sure the scanner is on a stable surface for scanning. Some scanners will be sensitive to direct sunlight being on the outside, if you find that your artworks get a strange bright spot, do check that section of your scanner isn't being exposed to direct light.
How to create your own SketchbookA Sketchbook is a special notebook to draw in. Many current and previous artists uch as Leonardo Da Vinci, have their own Sketchbook as a diary to write down their thoughts, ideas and experiences, whatever comes to mind. Also they might use a sketchbook to note down instructions or important facts about art. However, this 'bought' sketchbook can be very expensive and sometimes difficult to get in stores.How to create your own Sketchbook3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
There is however, an alternative to having your own sketchbook without buying it. This alternative is, of course, to create your own sketchbook to your style and your taste. This involves a little work but is great for being part of your artistic growth and development. Also you can save money because the materials are not as expensive as buying a ready made sketchbook in a store. You can spend even less if some of the materials could already be found in your home.
Are you ready to start ? Follow my instructions and you will have your own sketchbook. It's worth a try!
Traditional Artists Contest *more or less closed?EDIT:Traditional Artists Contest *more or less closed?3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello Traditional Artists
Today was the last day of my commission contest. I'm very thankful to all who have participated for their kindness and good will. I have chosen 3 works to buy as it was my primal intention and soon I'll be contacting the authors so we can agree on the terms of purchase.
I was contacted to extend the contest period, but as you can easily understand, this is not a regular contest: I think that any of you, traditional artists reading this, who have the will to produce a piece accordingly the rules below can contact me any time to show me a WIP or a finished work. If I like the piece, I'll buy it
Also below (scroll down to the end of the article) you can find my favourite works, wonderful pieces, just like I was looking for.
For now I'll remove the references I don't want any more but I'll keep the others available until the end of January 2013, so you are welcome to use them as I'm still commissioning you!
Thank you to all
