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
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.
A big resource community for colour palettes*, user named
The way we see it, we are selling crayons. Whatever you make with that crayon belongs to you. But the price of the crayon is that you let us see what you drew. Within the DeviantART community we also ask you to tell other deviants about the crayon stash by linking to it. Do not take a crayon you don't intend to pay for and don't claim our crayon as your own, even if you mess a bit with the wrapper.
If you have questions or need clarification about any term below don't hesitate to ask.

rules for stockusageI don't have many rules, but I require some things from people who use my stock in any form:rules for stockusage6 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can use my stock unrestricted for any non-commercial art you create as long as:
- you don't just change some colours or add some textures (be creative )
- you don't redistribut it as stock (eg. premade stock) -> edited 21. July 2012
- you don't make something hateful, racist or overly sexual
- you credit me properly with a link to my deviantart-account or to the deviation
- you send me a link to your work
Have fun with my stocks
All deviantART members are free to use my photos in dA-prints.
I'm normally fine with every other print-use (and every other commercial use) too, but I would like to see the result be
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

Prints for Sale!My buddy Dave Rapoza :icondavidrapozaart: turned me onto this great little company called Inprnt, who produce and ship beautiful, high quality prints.Prints for Sale!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I went ahead and ordered a bunch of my own pieces so I could inspect each image for myself and I was really bowled over by the quality and by how much care was taken in shipping them. They were individually wrapped and shipped flat in a reinforced cardboard parcel, while the poster-sized pieces were individually wrapped and carefully rolled and shipped in a thick, reinforced card-board tube with secured, plastic end caps.
The pieces are gallery-quality, no-gloss, giclée prints on 100% cotton rag archival paper, printed with archival inks. Each print features a minimum 1" border.
Personally I've always hated how glossy prints interact with light, you never seem to be able to view the image without some interference and reflection. I'd always find myself saying "No, stand there. Ok, now angle your shoulder this way and block out the overhe

Sans serif — Italics & weights
In the previous article of the typography series I presented some of the basic principles of type design and we started designing a geometric sans typeface such as Futura. In this article we will expand that typeface and add italics and alternate weights. Or rather, I will show you how to design italics and briefly present how you can modify your regular weight typeface to create alternate weights rather than having to re-draw the whole letter.

Tools for photographing the night sky Artists ToolsTools for photographing the night sky 1 month ago in Art Features More Like This
Photographing the night sky was one of my new years resolutions. I wanted to capture the stars where we live because very soon they'll be turning on the street lights and ruining the views that we have. Sometimes when the conditions are particularly good we get an amazing view of the milky way from just the naked eye. I wasn't as lucky the other evening but there are some definite captures of Jupiter amongst the stars... Read on for some info on how to photograph the night sky yourself...
DSLR Camera - full frame or crop sensor, it doesn't matter which!
Wide angle lens - around 16mm minimum (Landscape lenses do the trick)
Batteries (spares because invariably it's quite cold and they drain quicker!)
Remote shutter release
I recently invested in a Pixel RW Wireless shutter remote which you can find on Amazon

Beautiful Photography ++Think Photography is easy as a pie?Beautiful Photography ++2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll tell you what. Photography is the sum of a good amount of virtues. It is talent and inspiration. Creativity and imagination. Commitment and devotion. Patience and attention. Skill and technique. Team spirit and concentration. Art knowledge and innovation. Also, it requires a whole lotta time. And the list may go further and further.
So before you start judging the others' works, think. Don't go throwing sour remarks. Try to be a little sweet and understanding. And if you don't have anything nice to say, just move on. Find what you like and let others do what they like.
To every photographer who recognizes the need of all above, and never stops learning in the pursuit of those virtues, don't forget to Always protect what is yours. And don't you let anyone underestimate you. For I'm sure you put your mind, and body, AND soul in every single photograph you take.

My Landscape PhotographyHi! my name is Ferdinand I'm a digital artist working as an Art Director in game and outsourcing company. Beside doing paintings i also love photography most of my images are landscapes. I really like shooting landscapes because it's gives you the freedom and have the chance to explore your world around you and there's no limits on how you visualize your creativity. And it's a great source of inspiration and reference that i applied on my paintings. I traveled occasionally just to enjoy the pleasure and to embrace the awesomeness of our mother nature.My Landscape Photography5 months ago in Personal More Like This
