I hope it helps!
1. You need a draw.
Ill be using a old one of cake!
2. Save/Export it as BMP! This is important, if you dont save it as .bmp the glitching wont work!
3. Now that you have your .bmp file open it in WORDPAD, yes the normal text editing program!
4. And after you opened it in wordpad it will prolly look something like this:
5. DONT CHANGE ANYTHING!
Just click save!
4. And after that, your picture will look something like this:
And that's it!
If you want a different glitch version just open A COPY of your drawing (bmp) and drag a picture or gif file into the code!

Rooke's Character Building ExerciseThis was something I came up with when I was bored yesterday, and it turned out pretty fun. So you're welcome to try it.Rooke's Character Building Exercise1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Something very important to storytelling is creating unique, realistic characters who have thoughts, dreams, goals, and impressions all their own. Sometimes creating characters can be difficult if you don't know where to start, or if you can't seem to break out of certain stereotypes with your characters. So I made this little exercise in character building, just as a jump start to creating some random, interesting characters.
First, we have our two columns - TRAITS, and ROLES. A trait is an adjective. A role is a job or a "purpose" a character has. Most good characters have complex purposes and roles that they fill, far more than a single all encompassing word. But you can use these as starting points to creating characters.
What I did was make a list of 32 "traits" and "roles", whatever I could think of off the top of my head, that could be applied to stories of
Common Digital Painting Mistakes FAQHi everyone! I'm so happy so many of you enjoyed my tutorial!Common Digital Painting Mistakes FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you for all your +favs and comments -- it's been awesome . A lot people have been asking similar questions which weren't answered in the original tutorial. Here's some FAQ that will hopefully clear things up:
1. How do you do this in Paint Tool SAI?
Unfortunately, I don't have Paint Tool SAI so I don't have an exact answer for this. However, I've heard that it's similar so you should be able to translate most of the Photoshop tips into SAI. Also, most of the tips are conceptual and function in traditional work as well as digital, so the program you are using shouldn't hinder you too much in applying them.
2. What size should I make my canvas?
This has been a really common question and the answer is that it depends on the complexity of the work and the amount of detail you are trying to achieve. I make my canvases in the thousands of pixels at least. A rule of thumb that I use is

Uh, anyways!! I just wanted to share something wonderful i discovered. It's a bowl made of a vinyl records! Well i made some of them, well 2 i guess. Just find some old vinyls at your thrift shop ( recycle shop whatever ) and buy some of those, i have no idea how expensive or cheap if i might say that, they are but here in Denmark it was about $1,50 for an old used one. Pick a random one of maybe something in the music taste of the person you're gonna give it to! I didn't take picture of when i made it but i can just tell you people.

Article: HELP ME! I can't draw!Okay, so I've been talking to a lot of people who want to use my concepts, lineart, etc. because they don't think they can make art on their own without taking it from someone else in one form or another. I've gotten really exasperated, but I struggled not to lose my patience and hear what they have to say. And surprisingly, I learned a WHOLE BUNCH of completely unexpected things from them about why they try to do their art with the use of existing art from more experienced artists.Article: HELP ME!

Resizing Pixel Art : Smaller?I've had a few question on this (resizing pixel art to be smaller) on my most recent deviation and I've replied in kind to each person who has asked so far, but I thought I'd post my answer here as well for more to see.Resizing Pixel Art : Smaller?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is it possible to shrink pixel images?
Shrinking pixels is ...well it's not really feasible x_x. It can be done, but not done very well.
When you're making pixels bigger what you're doing is essentially multiplying every pixel in to a group of 4 pixels to make a 'larger pixel' or square
So lets say the image you're resizing is just of a pixelled line that is 2px tall and 5px long. After resizing it to 200% it will be 4 px tall and 10 pixels wide. The dimensions are larger b/c each pixel the line was composed of has been duplicated to create 'squares' that are twice as big as the original individual pixels.
So you can create the illusion of 'larger' pixels, but they're really just more regular sized pixels grouped together to look like bigger ones.
When you try to shrink

I remember those nights of nuzzling you in bed, listening to your confidences and secret dreams, and I believed that life could not be any more perfect. We went for long walks and runs in the park, car rides, stops for ice cream (I only got the cone because "ice cream is bad for dogs," you said), and I took long naps in the sun waiting for you to come home at the end of the day.

Appreciation and some advice for beginnersI have had this journal in mind for quite a long time, thinking I will find a time to write it down after I find a job (so that I can give 'advice' as a professional ). I've been less active in the past weeks since I was on a probation in a game company and I thought I would make it this time, unfortunately today I was told I have to go back to job hunting again. Anyway I'm not gonna wait any longer since some of my fellow deviants have been asking for advice for a long time.Appreciation and some advice for beginners1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I'm betting you are tired of hearing people say "practice"?
Well for me, improving is not instant. I may not even notice it, but every time I draw im improving a little.
How to Improve:
Draw all the time, draw everything you see, draw what you want to draw, draw in other peoples styles, draw realistic, draw cartoon, anything. JUST DRAW. Do it all the time. Draw in your notebooks and on your homework.
Do you hate the way you draw eyes? Maybe your paws/hands need more practice? Then find references and use them. I personally don't always find the time to use references, but I find when I do, my art is 10x better. Just practice drawing those eyes you've never gotten quite right. Look at other art and see what you really like about their style. And then try it out.
Now that you've practiced a bit more, draw somethin

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
