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..

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,

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.

The Sun, The Moon, The Stars
That could mean anything, it doesn't have to be a space theme, so get creative and try to stand out. It can be a sunny day, your favourite star or a crater on the moon. The art piece you do doesn't have to have all 3, but if you want it to, go ahead, just make sure to include at least one of them. Extra points if it's original and creative.
The art piece you submit can be drawn for the competition, or a previous artwork in your gallery.
It'll be judged by zepIyn, wdnest and Madmazda and you'll receive a feature in the Winner's journal.
Your prompt piece can be any format -- digital art, poetry, crafts, etc.
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.

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?

Photography Troubleshooting: Understanding ISOHeader created by TouchedDPhotography Troubleshooting: Understanding ISO2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
TheGalleryOfEve asked recently about SLR settings and in particular, a troubleshooting article focusing on ISO. So here it is! Hopefully this article will help you to understand ISO better, whether a beginner or not.
What Is ISO?
ISO within traditional photography, was an indication of how sensitive a film was to light. Within digital photography it measures the sensitivity of the image sensor. Basically, the lower the number then the less your camera is sensitive to light. Higher ISO numbers are generally used in dark situations to get faster shutter speeds but this can often mean that your shots are noisier. ISO 100 is the most widely used and gives crisp shots with little to no grain. Shooting in automatic means that the camera will select the appropriate ISO for the situations that you are facing, and work out the rest for you to reduce noise as much possible. But it's when you start getting more technical and

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 so-called recovery plan for the Mexican Grey Wolves is not working. There are only 59 remaining Mexican Grey Wolves in Arizona and New Mexico. They are facing extinction!
Mexican Wolves or "Lobos" are the smallest, rarest and most distinct subspecies of western wolves, but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, for no good reason, lists them as just another population of grey wolves. These wolves even have a distinct DNA.
In late October, 2012, the USFWS had an opportunity to create a new paradigm for Mexican Grey Wolf recovery in the Southwest, which the Agency chose not to do. It did not change the cla
