Resources for Artists: Art of Civilizations PastSo I have been thinking of doing a few articles apart from feature articles to link some useful resources for artists and this is the first one of these.Resources for Artists: Art of Civilizations Past2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Creating a concept about a civilization, a person or even a fantasy environment requires some solid background knowledge and learning about past civilizations' art helps in that regards. "'Should I create abstract patterns on the arches and pillars? Would placing a crosses around a minar look out of place?" "No way I do what I want!!" Surely, a lot of us have gone through those decisive moments.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) has several free fully illustrated books about several references. Below are some of MET's Civilization artbooks which are fully illustrated and full of information. But don't hesitate to research more through your own libraries and art galleries!

I want to go to ,,Art and Designe school" in city that is.. well.. far away from my city. That mean that I will need apartment. I think we can afford it, only problem is that my mother isn't allowing me to go. She thinks I have to go to gymnasium, but I want to study art. She doesn't belive in me.. She thinks that I won't be able to live with that high school...
After that, I am planning to go to Art accademy, animation course.
Here, on dA, I'm posting.. well.. only ponies, but I think I'm good at realistic drawing. I also love doing some cartoonish stuff..
If you want to, please fav this journal to give me support, just to show my mom that I can do it. Please, help me..

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
Cultural Appropriation 101This news article touches upon subjects that are sensitive to many people. Ordinarily, I try my best to avoid drama and online conflict, but I feel that this growing fashion trend needs to be addressed before it becomes the popular thing to do. It is my hope that through calm, rational discussion and input from users, we can start a dialogue that puts an end to ignorance and puts artists on the path towards creating beautiful works of art that do not unintentionally offend various groups of people.Cultural Appropriation 1013 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The issue I am speaking of is Cultural Appropriation.
I started noticing the beginning of this trend around last summer. Art and fashion seem to have taken a turn towards incorporating stereotypes of First Nations people, creating photoshoots, clothing and artwork featuring warbonnets, feathered headbands, eagles, dream catchers, moccasins and more. This fashion trend appropriates the culture of First Nations people, usually without consent, or thought for what is considered sacred. Often, p

Hello, everyone! Most of you probably remember last January when my little sister Katie was hospitalized for pneumonia and I hosted an event encouraging people to draw pictures for her. It was an overwhelming success, and Katie was thrilled when Dad showed her the pictures in the hospital.
During the project, FARTYTREEFROG and Freecakebadges were kind enough to donate 3,000 points for Katie (in total). I'm using these points to pull together this storybook project.
Details (please read all before commenting)
"The Magic of Love" is 14 pages long, including the cover, and I'll commission 17 illustrations for it. The characters are some of Katie's favorite (human) OCs. If you'd like to read the paragraphs that describe yo

I knew what was going on, since my Inspiration doesn't smoke, so, when it didn't come back as I expected, I decided to send my Will to Draw looking for it in order to bring it back to me.
It turned out to be a bad idea, since I never saw either of them again.
It's about a month now.
No need to mention how much I could use their help right now.
I tried to do things without them, but it didn't really work out... Of course I can still draw, it's not like one can lose the ability to do something when head traumas are not involved. Problem is, I'd rather wash dishes or spend the whole morning on the couch with my dog as a blanket than draw.
I know what people like to say in this cases...
"It's not art block, it's just you being lazy"
Yeah right, I'm so lazy I'd rather clean the whole house or stare the wall the whole day than do what I love the most. You're a genius, my problem is solved now, thanks.

At the conclusion of†The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?
They have no choice. If the demigods don't succeed, Gaea's armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

During the month of November each year, Movember asks men across the world to grow a moustache (or Mo') with the aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Together, we are truly changing the face of men’s health.

What did the wolf do wrong?What did the wolf do wrong?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The majority consider the wolf to be viscous cold blooded killer who's only goal is to kill. Ranchers, the government, and fairy tales would have you convinced of this. What many do not realize or forget that mans best friend, you dog, is a straight descendent of this savage killer. It is true, wolves can have a mean face full of teeth. So does the family dog. But ahhh, there is one major difference between a dog and a wolf. We have been successful in becoming that dogs alpha and have domesticated them. Im sure over the course of a few hundred years, even the most wild animal can be trained to do what you want at will.
We are in a time of repetition. In the days of old ranchers went out and hunted the wolf and if they couldnt, they demanded the government to do so. That is precisely what is going on today. The wolf could be found on the entire North American continent before it was decided to eradicate this pest. Where they failed is that without the wolf, the coyote,

Back to Basics Photography - Understanding RawdSLR cameras and most bridge cameras have the option to shoot in raw, but what exactly is it and what are the benefits? Let me attempt to explain.Back to Basics Photography - Understanding Raw2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A camera raw file contains all the data that is captured when the shutter button is pressed whereas a JPEG is compressed and a lot of the data is lost. They are often called digital negatives as they serve the same purpose as the negatives in film photography; they are not ready to be used as the final image, but hold all the information and data needed to produce one. This all means that you are left with a higher image quality which also allows you to have more control and manipulate more parameters than a JPEG. All of the metadata is also still in tact, meaning that the original state can always be referred back to if needed.
So, surely you want to see the difference, right? Well you're in luck.
Top - straight out of camera (SOOC) raw. Bottom - basic adjustments done in LightRoom raw.

Urban Exploration #8For those who haven't undertaken 'Urbex' before, it's hard to imagine the feeling of elation, mystery, suspense and a little fear as you venture into an unknown place. I tried to explain it for this fortnights article, but I couldn't get the words out. Urban Exploration is best captured by the photography that comes out as a result of the venturing. However I did stumble across this article which perfectly and quite succinctly sums up how it feels to venture out there to places that so very few have been before.Urban Exploration #82 years ago in Art Features More Like This

No One Cares About Your StoryGOOD NEWS: This is perfectly normal!No One Cares About Your Story2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
I can't remember the source, but a few years ago I read this famous author's account of how it felt to have his first book come out, and he mentioned buying a copy himself because he was afraid no one would take an interest. Now this is a guy who managed to get not only an agency but a publisher (which is a whole pile of people who were like yesplz), and he's still afraid readers won't care. I was like, 'whoa mind blown.'
But anyway, the fact is that we are all strangers on the Internet and, by default, there is no reason for you to read my stuff or vice-versa. If you went and stood in Times Square with copies of your latest story, how many people would give you more than a passing glance? And how many of those people would get to the end of your work, and how many of those would offer critical feedback?
And, if you were one of the passersby, whom would you stop for?
