Hi guys, sorry it's been so long since the last update
Chaotica has been tremendously improved since the last public release, thanks to amazing support from the dA fractal community and Glare Technologies. After many semi-public betas in :#Aposhack: it's long overdue to talk about the changes here!
A ton of bugfixes and improvements have been made throughout the application, and especially the world editor. Undo and Redo for edits has been implemented, the (affine) transform axes now are labelled and you can also edit the post-affines, the randomly generated parameters are much nicer, cropn is natively supported, batch mode has been greatly improved, if you're feeling really nerdy there's even a Lyapunov exponent histogram in there! ... the complete list of changes will be really long, and I still haven't finished putting that together!

New Brushes In Sight for Arrival
Hello everyone, now normally we release an exercise yesterday but today we are letting you guys know we are working to create easy to download brush packs that you guys will be able to download in a single click! So the focus for the next two weeks is going to be shifted, which would normally be on exercises to creating some fantastic brushes. This has been something I’ve wanted to update for some time. There’s no reason the brushes should be separated and hard to download all of them. Next Friday we will have a new page with a one-click, easy to download brush pack available.
So my question to you: What brushes do you want me to create by next Friday?
Let us know HERE.
I already have new metal brushes, silhouette brushes, and painterly brushes

Need faces?We've already had "Need references?" and "Need textures?", time for something else. This actually is about references again, but about these more specified ones. Emotions. How many times have you wondered why is that the faces you draw look as empty as dead? Depicting moods can be a very hard task. Try sketching yourself (yes, a mirror would be a nice thing to have in this case), pull faces at diffrent angles, change light. And take a look at these below.

Resources For Artists: Colour Scheme ToolsColour Scheme ToolsResources For Artists: Colour Scheme Tools2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So 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. While this is a mini one, it's helped me a lot on several occassions.
Sometimes it gets confusing to decide which colours to choose. "'Should I go with a turquoise and a gold for the face? What about the room? I was going for a chic cool modern palette which is minimalistic!" Surely, a lot of us have gone through those decisive moments. Below are some colour scheme tools that would help you with your colour scheme choices. Click the titles or the links in asterisk to go to the following sites.

Photomanipulation-Related Submission FAQsHello everyone,Photomanipulation-Related Submission FAQs2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Sometimes with the flood of information these days, it becomes really easy to lose track of the basics of what you can and cannot do and what is and is not required for submission. I thought I would put together some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for the Photomanipulation Community. Many of these answers are also relevant to the rest of dA.
I hope this is useful as we move forward with PE: Photomanip Month!
Does my artwork need a mature tag?
deviantART defines mature content as "Mature content is considered to be anything which contains nudity, excessive violence, blood, gore, or any other potentially upsetting or offensive material" and suggests that images that are controversial, such as religion and politics, may also be considered "mature." But, the definition of "mature" is more broad than that. See :faq220:
So what does this mean for YOUR specific artwork? The FAQs also explain that: :faq554:

Stock Rules and SuchMy rules are minimal.Stock Rules and Such3 years ago in Personal More Like This
*Absolutely NOTHING perverted or sexual. I don't want to come across an image of mine manipulated to display something brutally offensive. If you break this rule I will remove all my stock.
*Images may be used on and off DA, for contests prints pretty much wherever and however you want. Just please credit and always send me a link. The best part about stock is seeing what others create with it.
*You may use my stock in work you're trying to sell on or off line or for prints. You may also use for commercial work. However, you must manipulate it in some way to be able to do this. If you can credit me great, if not thats fine. Be fair and don't claim any of my stock as your own.
*Most all my images can be used for stock unless its a manipulation with another persons art in it.
*Sometimes I forget to change the creative commons license before I submit, doesn't matter still fair game to use as you please.

Need references?Although drawing and painting "from life" is way much more effective and efficient than drawing from photos (I'll be writting a separate journal about this soon, no worries), you simply can't have a person to model for you every time you want to create something. And there are situations when you don't exactly know how to place that bloody hand or if the foot is drawn correctly. Similiar issues can happen with architecture, perspective... with everything you draw. Then, when you look for help, you may stumble upon Stock gallery and you find awesome things. Remember about crediting the used stock directly!Need references?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Learning to draw with Loomis: art book featureIf you want to become a better artist and you find that your own "How to draw" books, or the tutorials on the internet are lacking in scope, then this article is for you. I'm going to talk to you about some of the best books on making art that have ever been written - and that's not an exaggeration.Learning to draw with Loomis: art book feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
These books were written around the WWII-era by a man called William Andrew Loomis. He was a very accomplished and widely published artist at the time, but what he's currently more well-known for is a series of art books he created during that time. These books have stood the test of time and their contents are still commonly used and recommended to art students of a wide range of skill levels, and if you're looking to improve your drawing skills, particulary faces and the human body, these books are a good place to start.
The major strength of his books is that they're not a step-by-step guide or tutorial on how to draw a specific picture, portrait or pose. Many art books fall into this ca

PE: Importance of AnatomyThe importance of anatomy.PE: Importance of Anatomy2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Understanding anatomy is crucial to many aspects of your art.
You'll notice that anatomy is essential for drawing. It becomes difficult to accurately draw a complex pose, or even a simple one, if you don't understand what's under all that skin or fur, or even bark. Knowing how everything fits together is important.
Once you notice where that certain muscle is, shading and form become much more accurate and more natural. Knowing why the nose and eyes fall where they do make it much easier to draw from memory, and nail that natural look you were going for.
Learning the anatomy of the subject you're going to draw is quite important, and will definitely help you on several levels.
It's also easier to drawing sequences of movement. One will know what connects to what, and how they move. What is possible, and what isn't. (Range of motion)
Drawing people and other animals can be intimidating. Once you have a solid foundation, it's much easier
