I looked with question at the vial in my hand. The dark blue liquid inside reflected seamlessly off the light coming from my flashlight. I saw the label, and on it was the label for "Project Bluelight," Edengene's top secret project. I went there for one reason. That reason was to experience what the product had to offer. I suddenly started thinking of so many possibilities. One was that it would turn me into a type of Aquatic humanoid or a fish entirely. Then I thought it would be used to increase eyesight. Just as more and more thoughts hatched into my head, I looked over, and saw the project papers. I went stiffly over to the papers and opened them. Then my eyes shot open. I soon realized that the project would be used to increase ones own vitamin capacity allowing for increased health...... by turning the drinker into a blueberry. My mind lurched at th

Photography Troubleshooting: Capturing AutumnFor many Photographers, Autumn is now officially here and is one of the most exciting seasons to capture in terms of colour, change and vistas. Early morning mist, late afternoon sun, orange, red and golden hues - Autumn has a lot to offer in many countries. If you're like me, Autumn often arrives all at once and it can be tricky to know how to make the best of the season before it's over. A couple of days of high winds and rain can ruin the best Autumnal captures by ripping the leaves down before you've even got the chance to snap - so it's great to be prepared for the season.Photography Troubleshooting: Capturing Autumn3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Leading lines are particularly useful. Yet so many people quote ' Look for leading lines...' or 'You've captured the leading lines here perfectly' and really do we even know properly what they are? The purpose of a leading line is to draw a viewers eye into the photograph and then on a journey - through it. Think of it as a visual narrative. They can be intentional and ind

Five Years Plan To Become An ArtistDear Aspiring Artist:Five Years Plan To Become An Artist3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here is my advice. Think of it as a five-year plan:
Take whatever courses you find the most interesting.
Study closely the work of the Old Masters.
Stop making art that originates only from your own imagination.
Stay with one technique until you perfect it.
On any given day, always be in the middle of reading a book. When you finish one, start the next. Fiction, nonfiction, biographies, autobiographies, history, science, psychology, or how to build a kite. Anything but go easy on the comic books.
Buy and read the first 6 pages of newspaper every day and also the editorial commentaries. Skip the entertainment section. Su Doku is fine. Do the crossword puzzle.
Fill up a sketchbook every month with pen or pencil drawings of the world around you, not from your imagination.
Buy a book on figure drawing. It's the only art book you will ever need.
Until you can draw an accurate portrait of someone, you don’t know how to draw.
Stay away from the airbrush. You'll

If you find that your masking fluid has turned thick and/or lumpy, it might simply be too old, but it could also be the result of wrong handling. I'm no expert either and I can't tell you what to do about masking fluid that has turned thick and lumpy... except to throw it out and buy a new bottle, but here are a couple of pointers on how to avoid these problems in the future.
Tip # 1
Do not apply masking fluid straight from the bottle unless all you want are really just one or two quick dots here and there. Every minute that bottle is open favors the drying-

So I just received this note to my inbox here on DA:
"David you are a blessed young man with TREMENDOUS talent ppl can only hope to aspire to but a spirit that has been hurt by so many ppl over "who you are". If u trusted and believed God like u say you do then trust Him when He says youre sexuality is not okay. u get scared because you dont know howw to"get rid of it" but its a spirit, i garuntee you. A member of a local church i know of had been delivered from that homosexual spirit that plauged Him for years!!! You may think it cant be done but if you believe in Jesus Christ and have accepted Him then there is NOTHING He can't do!!I say this with all the Love in my heart. God wants to bless you and turn you into a message for lost souls all around too^^"
How lovely it is to see that people hid their true thoughts behind compliments and smiley faces...

Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?It seems there has been a recent explosion in DA users who are now using polymer clay as a medium for their deviations.Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To help out curious users who might be interested in what this medium is, how it works, or where they can get it I thought a NEWS article should be made. I shall also showcase some
deviations made with polymer clay. The data below is compiled from HanaClayWorks polymer clay FAQ and my own FAQ
What is polymer clay?
-Polymer clay is actually not clay at all. It is a form of plastic. (Specifically fine particles of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) suspended in plasticizer) The only reason it is called "clay" is because of it's clay like properties. It is a mold-able substance that can be cured in a normal oven (or toaster oven) and will retain it's shape and remain strong after baking.
Where can I buy Polymer clay?
-You can buy Polymer clay at craft stores like Michaels, AC Moore, Jo Ann Fab

Artists Toolbox: Airbrushing BasicsToday I'd like to take a moment to talk about airbrushing basics. I feel that it is an art form that is very under represented here on deviantART and perhaps with a little education on it, more people might become interested in airbrushing.Artists Toolbox: Airbrushing Basics2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Airbrushing can be used for various different things, from body art, to painting model cars and planes, to painting sculptures, to painting automotives, T-shirts, canvas, even cake decorating, etc etc, the possibilities with airbrushing are pretty limitless and as such can be a wonderful art form to get familiar with and perhaps even utilize yourself. Oh, and did I also mention that airbrushing is fun?
Try it, you'll like it!
Airbrushes come with a few different features which I've outlined below to help make an educated guess on what type would best suit you if this is something you're interested in trying.
Do I Have To Explain Why Killing Babies Is Wrong?!There is plenty of room for gray area in morality. But sometimes, some things are black and white with no ounce of gray in between. One of those things is infanticide, which is clearly black. And while one should always have a well-reasoned constructive argument against something, as blogger Matt Walsh explains, sometimes, no argument is needed:I don’t know how else to explain this. Can I really formulate an argument that will explain why we shouldn’t murder disabled children? If you don’t immediately recognize the eugenic slaughter of handicapped babies as something severely troubling, I’m not sure that I can offer any insights to help you understand.Do I Have To Explain Why Killing Babies Is Wrong?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You see, this is the problem. This is why we can’t come to any agreements. This is why our arguments are fruitless. They don’t have to be — arguing could be a rather worthwhile activity.
How to become a better colorist?Hey guys and girls. Today something especially for you. Some useful tips from coloring artist.How to become a better colorist?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you asked me about tutorial. I really wanted to write one but they are so time consuming.
So let's start.
1. Make good flats at the start. Use polygonal lasso tool in Photoshop and then Paint bucket tool, it's the most accurate method. Filling areas with brushes is wrong, believe me. You will swear to gods and scream out loud trying to later fill all these tiny holes you didn't notice white painting flats with brush.
Of course don't stick to this advice too much. If you have a bunch of tiny elements it's obvious that it's better to color them with hard brush than to use lasso, especially the polygonal one
My way of doing flats is to make every particular color/character on a separate layer. For example, having two girls, sky and clouds in the picture, I make 3 groups: background, girl1, girl2. Then in each group I make layers for: sky, clouds, skin, hair, shirt, jeans... etc. May look

Something about dedication in drawing improvementUPDATED: 2013/11/02 Added 1 personal suggestion at the bottom...Something about dedication in drawing improvement2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Couple of days ago I came across a series of notes & quotes made my various Japanese artists on how to improve drawing. This was not really an article per say but more of cut & paste collection from different source, so the artists had very different background varying from manga-ka, animators & illustrators (including general illustration). While some of them did have specific approach in development, majority of them had 1 thing in common. Which is to weight the practice in quantity, in other word "draw as much as you can".
To me this was rather obvious cause I some what went through this practice earlier in my as I became so called "Artist". (Well that's what people call me and not what I personally feel...) Although the difference is that initially I didn't do it because I wanted to improvement but I just picked up pencil because I like drawing. But in any case their was couple of
