5 Reasons you should learn photography manually!I once met someone who was determined not to use a D-SLR until he had mastered a Manual Camera first. I thought he was a bit stuck up, maybe a little arrogant of his own abilities too...but actually, he was right. You will not truly value Photography until you go right back to basics and learn how the legendary pros did it first. So here are five top reasons why you should teach yourself photography on a manual camera!5 Reasons you should learn photography manually!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1) It's Cheap
Many people think that Film Photography is expensive. If you're going all out and developing your own photographs rather than taking the to a developer then it might well be expensive! However manual cameras are a dying breed and you can pick up most of the bits and pieces you need to get started, quite cheaply.
2) Manual Focus
It's the simplest reason, but it's so true. Manual Focus will save your life. Learning how to focus your camera the hard way will make

True Friends.There are so many people in the world being a possible friend.True Friends.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are many false friends, but there are only some good friends. Friends you can rely on.
I also found some very nice friends on deviantART I owe my biggest thanks.
But all I can do is giving our big hugs and some features.
So there you go (I chose these four, because I really love you all!)
You take such beautiful pictures and I am really excited to meet you in October!
You are one of the most inspiring photographers in the world to me. So young, but already so talented.
We already met two times and I feel like I can tell you the world. Our passion fuses us, and that's a great feeling.
Quick way to make perfect perspective grids.Hey everyone, I just put up a new video on how to create physically accurate perspective grids in 2 minutes or less. A lot of people, including myself, tend to just eyeball it or make a best guess, but with these methods you can make them accurate to camera with very little effort. Enjoy!Quick way to make perfect perspective grids.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.

(Everything is currently closed until I catch up on personal and owed work.)
Yes, I am finally putting together my new commission information. Please read through my commission rules before noting/emailing me about anything. I typically only open one type of commission at a time so I'm not overloaded. If you really want something that may be closed, feel free to note me. I might have enough time to put it in my schedule.
Chibis - $15
These are full body chibis complete with shading (or flats) and a simple/transparent background. Pose can be left up to the commissioner or myself if you wish. If you wish to have two characters in the same picture, the second is just an extra $5. PLEASE don't send me overly complicated characters for this. It's very hard to simplify them i

Endangered Africa ContestContest has ended, judging is in process.Endangered Africa Contest4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It has been just over a year since our last contest ended, therefore it's high time we started our next one!
And this is also a chance to celebrate reaching 1,000 members! I never thought this group would get this big. A big thank you to everyone who has joined and helped make this group what it is today!
This contest will be run along very similar lines as our African Predator contest, with multiple winners for multiple categories, listed below.
What We Accept
First of all you need to be a member of AfricanValley in order to participate in this contest.
We accept animals that are of vulnerable, endangered or critically endangered status as decided by the IUCN red list of threatened species. This information can be found on their website, or by looking up said species on wikipedia (which is quicker and easier), as wiki's information is taken from the IUCN's list. You may be surprised to find a lot of animals

2.) Include at least 7 run cycles. The fewer frames, the better.
3.) Make sure to have one of each of the following: A closeup of the protagonist's eyes, gritted teeth, 3 red claw marks slashing across the screen, and bloody claws. (Bonus points for a single tear rolling down cheek)
4.) At least one character design must be slightly different than how it is described in the book series, so people have something to complain about.
5.) The AMV must focus on Scourge, Tigerstar, Bluestar, Ashfur, or Hollyleaf. (If not these characters, then the character in question MUST have a tragic / angsty past.)
6.) Trace every frame of your AMV from someone else's AMV, but never admit you did it. (If you get called out, claim that THEY copied YOU.)
7.) Character designs must be anime inspired. Characters can't be angsty if they don't have bangs and gian

And I'm back for the feature... oh my, I wasn't here for almost 2 weeks Sorry cuz of that, but I have to make ton of stuff for college, so I probably won't be here that much in next upcoming weeks. So I hope you can also wait for my new stuff which I draw (a little slowly...I paused process cuz of school ).
But I also have great news for you. One of my newest drawings which I still draw, I record. So soon you'll be able to see on our YouTube account whole process how I draw my paintings. From sketch till finished piece. But I guess I'll have to post it in few parts (cuz I already draw it more than 14 hours and I just started ).
And here is the feature. I featured some amazing character and environment pieces by great artists all around dA. If you like these works, then fav them... and you can also fav this article and help these artists, so they can get more attention. Thank you and I hope you enjoy this feature
