Urbex 19#Schools...have you ever wandered through a school after hours and felt just a little bit spooked? I have occasionally - and also office blocks, but that's another article!

Italian with Hetalia: the projectItalian with Hetalia: the project1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hello, Hetalia fans!
I would like to talk to you about this project I have...
As someone of you may know, I am Italian. I saw on DA that many Hetalia fans would like to learn more about my country, even the language...!
It was so strange for me to read this, I didn't know someone would be actually interested in Italy (without stopping at what hetalia says about Italy, which are not really correct things btw)...
But I was indeed flattered and happy to see it!
So this idea came up to my mind: using Hetalia characters, build up a sort of comic/course to let you learn Italian language, and maybe some history/culture/whatever.
Why? You may ask. Well, since I myself am Italian, I think I can help people from other countries to learn something about mine; y'know, I would really like if someone from Japan would do something like this for Japanese eheh ^^"" I think it can be useful... and for me it will be fun xD
Desenhe meu OC!“Desenhe meu OC!” é um evento organizado pelo Artistas Brasil que serve de incentivo aos membros de divulgarem seus desenhos, OCs e de se comunicarem. Os membros vão poder encontrar OCs de outros membros e desenharem, sendo que a pessoa que tiver seu OC desenhado também fará um desenho de um OC da outra pessoa. Funciona como uma “art trade”, mas nesse evento é para OCs brasileiros dos membros do grupo.Desenhe meu OC!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
O que são OCS? Original Caracter é um personagem original feito pela pessoa, ou seja, não é um fanart. Existem half-OCs que são aqueles personagens originais feitos dentro de um universo já existente. Por exemplo: Pegar um Pikachu e dar características próprias para ele, personalidade e aparência. É um OC, mas é de um universo que já existe, Pokémon. OCs realmente originais não fazem parte de um universo pré-existente, a menos que esse universo seja o
How to Submit a FilmPerhaps one of the most confusing tasks of finishing your film is getting it from the editing software to the screen. Which export, render, or "Save to..." option do you use? What settings are best for the web? This article will hopefully help clear up some of those questions and get you on your way to a successful gallery submission.How to Submit a Film7 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Step 1 - Pick Your Program
There are many programs you could use to edit your work, but I'm going to give examples of a few popular ones below. Some applications have multiple methods or exporting the final file so make sure you pick the right one!
"Composition > Make Movie" (Please note that you shouldn't use "File > Export" for your video as it severely limits your options!)
Final Cut Pro
"File > Export > Using Quicktime Conversion"
"File > Share > Quicktime > Expert Settings"
"File > Export > Adobe Media Encoder"

Elliott Erwitt fréquente le lycée d'Hollywood, tout en travaillant dans un laboratoire commercial où il développe des tirages "signés" pour les fans de stars de cinéma. En 1949, il retourne en Europe où il voyage et prend des photos en Italie et en France, c'est le début de sa carrière professionnelle.
Conscrit dans l'armée des Etats-Unis en 1951, il continue à photographier pour plusieurs publications totalement à l'écart de ses fonctions militaires alors qu'il est en poste au New Jersey, en Allemagne et en France.
Par pure chance, alors qu'il était parti chercher du travail à New York avant son service militaire, il rencontre Edward Steichen, Robert Capa

Tilda Swinton has always been more types of wildly creative artist than “only” an actress. As part of a live performance art installation for the Serpentine Gallery in London, she was displayed in a glass box not much bigger than herself, doing nothing but occasionally sleeping. She’s well–known in fashion circles for her work with designers specializing in androgynous styles of attire. She starred in the art–house film “Orlando,” based on the Virginia Woolf novel, in which she switches gender half way through the time–tripping story. Tilda is now known mostly as an Oscar–winning actress in main

We are proud to present his short guide on how to plan, assemble and print comics.Small Press Production Guide2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Someone had asked me a couple weeks ago how comics were made. I first thought they were asking how the physical book was printed and stapled and distributed. But it turns out they were asking how a book was made from concept, to writing, to the art.
And I realized, unless you have been a life long comic fan, the answer isn’t that obvious. And so, I’m going to show you step by step how a comic is made. I’ll be using my comic Shadows of Oblivion as the example, however most comics are not a one man show like mine, most are team efforts, so keep that in mind as we go through this. Each stage is usually executed by one person who is an ex
