How to be a good subject for your photographer!You should try to:How to be a good subject for your photographer!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- Instantly listens to quick prompts / direction.
- Be open to any critique mid or after shoots!
- Have a decent understanding of what the photographer is looking at (light/framing)
- Pose naturally and (if in Cosplay) act in character .
- Be confident for the duration of the shoot.
- Avoid being self concious.
- Be aware of the direction of light (to avoid unflattering shadows, etc)
- Loosen up! Literally. Shake your limbs and relax your muscles from time to time.
- Avoid squinting. If the sun is too bright you will naturally squint. Close your eyes and ask the photographer to do a count down.
- Throw ideas at your photographer. Be creative.
So there you go.. If you want to make life incredibly easy for your photographer try and nail the above points.
While I'm shooting I need 100% trust from my subject. I also can't have anyone disagreeing with my requests however odd they are (unless I ask em to do something dangerous, lol).
This completely breaks my creative flow
Cosplay Photoshoot EtiquetteMy good friend hikaraseru has written a very good guide on how a standard cosplay photoshoot should be conducted in a conducive manner. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur

How to deal with criticism?Hi everyone! I'm Megan, but I guess you can call me Bunny. I usually go by that. Anyway, I'm one of the new admins here-I'm so super excited to be here, and be able to help this wonderful group. Today I'm just going to make a little blog about how to deal with criticism. Especially as artists, we all get it. So, I'll try and help. ♥How to deal with criticism?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Listen up. Figure out whether the criticism is constructive or simply rude. If criticism could be helpful, lend all ears and try to learn from it instead of getting defensive.
2. Respond calmly. Be respectful no matter what, and thank someone if the feedback is useful. If the critique is uncalled for (that story you wrote was crap!), kill 'em with kindness. A simple smile makes you the bigger person.
3. Don’t take it personally. Try to remove yourself from the situation and focus on what’s being critiqued.
4. Keep on keepin' on. Remember that the criticism represents just one person’s point of view. Know what your strengths are a

It's going to be rare that I make a brand new journal entry for The Alley, because honestly everywhere on DA, contests are running ALL THE TIME! So please be sure to check up on this entry to see what contests are going down!
Here are some contests that you might want to go ahead and have a look. I want to encourage those of you who feel a little intimidated by entering in contest/challenges to take a chance and enter. No one's going to bite your head off for giving it your best (if someone does let me know, cuz no one messes with my Gimp-Stars ). Enter, and don't be discouraged If you don't win, it's okay. The important thing is that you're moving outside your comfort zone and improving your craft.
If there's a contest you want listed in The Alley, let me know!

10 Top Tips To Become A Better Artistby10 Top Tips To Become A Better Artist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tip 1: Learn the Importance of the Sketch
Sketching is one of those things that every artist MUST do and do often. Sketches don't have to be perfect, nor do you have to show them to anyone. They can be as rough or as scratchy as you like but the thing to keep in mind is it's readability. The purpose of a sketch is to quickly illustrate or develop an idea you have, to capture or study some form of reference so that it can be worked on at a latter date. Because of this, the sketch only needs to convey the right information to you and you alone (unless you are drawing an idea out for a client then the message needs to be crystal clear).
Tip 2: Draw, Draw and Draw Some More!
This is a similar tip to the first but what I mean by this is draw anything that comes to mind or visually interests you. Sketch on the bus, train, in bed and even on the toilet. Seriously! The

Okay - so using this is kinda like writing a list, it all comes down to wrapping each element inside the previous.
for simplicity I have made a costum div for the menu and called it (drumroll please) menu_ (menu is used by deviantArt somewhere) I have defined and inside the menu, so if you want to make something italic outside the menu - or use the tag for something else, you can.
let's start with one level 1 (level 1a)
the html would be:
which would then look like:
so - the first inside the menu_ is level 1, yes? By adding more we will get level 1b and 1c:
which now looks like:
