How to become a better colorist?Hey guys and girls. Today something especially for you. Some useful tips from coloring artist.How to become a better colorist?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you asked me about tutorial. I really wanted to write one but they are so time consuming.
So let's start.
1. Make good flats at the start. Use polygonal lasso tool in Photoshop and then Paint bucket tool, it's the most accurate method. Filling areas with brushes is wrong, believe me. You will swear to gods and scream out loud trying to later fill all these tiny holes you didn't notice white painting flats with brush.
Of course don't stick to this advice too much. If you have a bunch of tiny elements it's obvious that it's better to color them with hard brush than to use lasso, especially the polygonal one
My way of doing flats is to make every particular color/character on a separate layer. For example, having two girls, sky and clouds in the picture, I make 3 groups: background, girl1, girl2. Then in each group I make layers for: sky, clouds, skin, hair, shirt, jeans... etc. May look

Sheesh you guys how long has it been since my last artbook post? Seems like forever! I think before Christmas?
Well I still have lots of books that I want to share, just been too lazy. LOL.
(also - please note I'm still doing free requests as seen in the previous journal). I've only done one so far so I want to do more before postin'. C: )
Anyway - this book is made of pure awesome! And there are two more volumes besides this one! Gainax never fails to deliver some qualitayyy. I really wish I had their FLCL book with the Genga and Douga like this one. But it is SOOOO expensive and hard to find nowadays.
soooo - On to the pictures I suppose. . .
Please note that these images are LARGE. So if you aren't viewing on a huge screen, DA is probably choppin' em down.
TO YOU ASPIRING ARTISTS...FROM JOE MADUREIRAHere's some of the most amazing and invaluable advice you'll most-likely ever get from one of my good colleagues and legends in comics/gaming, creator JOE MADUREIRA. It's what i've been preaching to you aspiring artists since i arrived on DA, but i think his POV says it perfectly:TO YOU ASPIRING ARTISTS...FROM JOE MADUREIRA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
*WARNING: SOME MATURE LANGUAGE*
"DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST?
Or a successful WORKING PROFESSIONAL?
Believe it or not there is a difference. I'm not usually a soapbox type guy, I don't like instructing people, and I think I'm a terrible teacher. But hey, it's Friday and I'm in a strange mood. So here goes:
I've noticed that a good number of my fans happen to be aspiring artists themselves. This is for all you guys. I get asked constantly: "Where should I go to school?" "What classes should I take?" "What should I study for anatomy?" "What pencils and paper do you use?" "Should I be working digitally now instead of traditionally?" "How do I fix my poses? Learn composition? Perspective?" "When
Casey's coming? No problem!Hey, guys! FlashyFashionFraud here! With all the commotion going on with Casey and everyone ready for defeat, I say "fear not!" I have proof April and Donnie still have a great chance of happening and Casey should not be something to worry about.Casey's coming? No problem!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First off, to those who are unaware of who Casey is, Casey Jones is a character brought back many times through the franchise. He's famous for his hockey mask, torn up clothes and his "F the police" attitude and is famous for being April's love interest in the 2003, 2007, and some of the comics. He's now being brought back to the 2012 version of the show and fans have been freaking out due to Donnie's love for April, or "silly crush on her" as told by Casey and April fans.
I've looked around and noticed a lot of fans feel discouraged knowing Casey's coming. Don't. I decided to poke my head around, refusing to give up on the idea that Donnie is just going to get his heart broken. I have found nothing about Casey and April getting together

Dear Raiders, we’re thrilled to announce that after long weeks of preparations we are finally ready to launch

And do you know how those were created? All these masterpieces used to be very rough sketches once, like this:
Many of you definitely know how fascinating the process of an artwork’s creation is - how the idea turns into a sketch, how the sketch turns into a breathtaking artwork. Tomb Raider Empire offers you a chance to walk in the shoes of creative directors yourselves and invites to join the contest

Oh, many people asked for it, so, I'll do ~ i hope that it'll be good, because I'm not good with explanations.
Which the program that I use?
Gimp 2.8 (you can download it in the site, it's free! http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ )
But you can use Photoshop too, because GIMP looks like with Photoshop, but it's free, more simple and more "light".
I'll explain of a mode that is possible make in Photoshop or GIMP, not much detailed, I wait that you know the basic of the program.
Ah! Have many many patience >//<
The images about what I saying are in the right of the text.
Start with a document of size 100x100 px.
And create a "border" (in other layer) with the size 50x50 so you know that your pixel art is in the size correct.
Now you can make

Sick and tired of 9gag theft[Update: After 13 Days, they finally removed the image. ]Sick and tired of 9gag theft11 months ago in Personal More Like This
a new Mini Comic sadly means, more theft over on 9gag. Like clockwork, someone stole the most recent one and reposted it here within minutes.
I have had every single Mini Comic stolen so far without fail, and I feel that now I am forced to use more prominent and ugly watermarks in the future.
In general I don't mind when people share my art, as long as 1. no money is earned through the post (9gag makes about $13k a day through ad revenue with traffic generated by stolen material) 2. watermarks are not removed and people can find the source 3. people ask beforehand.
I have a Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, so on those sites I post most of my art anyway which people can simply retweet, reblog and share.
So far, 9ga

How to get more Popularity and PageviewsFame is something a lot of people want to get on dA.How to get more Popularity and Pageviews6 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Many people know this - you log in and have little to no new messages.
So you want to get known, want to get your pictures out there. Many pageviews tell you that many people have visited your site and have taken notice of you.
This is giving everyone a good feeling
So here are some suggestions to reach this goal:
In order to get you have to give. Browse through the categories you like the most, and pick the pictures you like and comment on them. Don't only comment on the most professional pictures, the artist is most likely too busy to answer them all. Your chance of getting noticed is bigger when you comment on the works of unpopular artists, as they are more likely reading and answering your comment.
Important: Don't spam. No one likes mediocre comments that could fit every picture. Most people will just ignore you then, plus you could get banned. And don't only comment on pictures, also com

Earlier today we posted a blog about two possible Tomb Raider games and they both were just officially confirmed!
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, today announced its latest title in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider series, Rise of the Tomb Raider . The game will redefine survival action in Holiday 2015.
In her first adventure, Lara Croft was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. In the next chapter of her journey, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider.
“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could

Artist WalkthroughThis walkthrough focuses on:Artist Walkthrough2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- guiding you as an artist and improving your artistic skills
So having said that... let's get started!
I have been drawing for a long time. Since I was little I would draw all the time on anything I could find. That passion for drawing and art has always stayed with me. But the problem is talent or potential will only get you so far. If you really want to become a great artist you will have to put in many hours of work. And you would preferably have someone there to guide you. Even now I am learning about basic skills I wish I had learned years ago. That is the problem of being self taught... you have to figure everything out yourself. Of course there are benefits to that too. Self taught artists are generally very motivated and passionate people. I have only come to the point where I am now just because I am passionate and slightly obsessed with drawing. But I want to know more, learn more and improve more. So that is why I am setting up this little drawi

We also spent some time this evening listening to the voice auditions for Honour Amongst Thieves that I've received so far, and may I just say that a lot of the entries have been just SO amazing!! I'm seriously having a really hard time trying to choose between some of these voices, but I'm going to leave the auditions open until early January, so if we don't all die before the 22nd you've still got some time on your hands.
