The 5 Things that Helped my Career the MostFive main points. If you can do all five of these, you're going to have a great career. Before you can strengthen your career with these concepts to follow, though, there’s something that you need first: talent. You don’t have to be born with talent, but you do have to work hard at developing it.The 5 Things that Helped my Career the Most2 months ago in Personal More Like This
#1 - Have a Career Compass.
A lot of people when asked, will say that they have an idea of what their goal is. Maybe they want to work on a game or a movie, but they don’t have it narrowed down any further than that. Be very specific about your goals. What kind of movie do you want to work on? What kind of game? Get into the details. Once you have enough details, then you can use that goal as your ‘career compass’. Whatever moves you make, make sure that you think about your compass, and think if your next move is going to take you closer to your goal. My goal was to work on a Tim Burton movie so every job and painting I did was not based on how much it paid
Tip of the Day: Experiencing a fallThe experience of falling down is as important as getting up in order to succeed. Sometimes failing for a while is what we need to truly appreciate it when we obtain our goal. Appreciation is one of the core things we need to maintain and/or increase what success we've achieved.Tip of the Day: Experiencing a fall3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Just install this amazing new browser script written by rotane, which not only shrinks the thumbnails back to a reasonable size, but also gets rid of the awkward light-background problem for wide deviations.

Six Word Story Contest - 7 3Mo.Subs to be won!A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.Six Word Story Contest - 7 3Mo.Subs to be won!4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
So getting to the point of this article, we are kickstarting this year with a six word story contest! We have some awesome prizes and hopefully enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! Please support the contest and the article so that more can join in on the fun!

Does it happen to you too? I mean, smelling a very special smell/perfume that sends you immediatly in your childhood for example? Sometimes you've forgotten them, you think they don't exist anymore, you can't even think of them even if you wanted too.
Here's an example: It happened to me once in the metro. A man, with a bad breath, actually, it was the smell of someone who smokes the pipe. But I had this particular feeling that it was positive. I was even staarting to like this special... smell O_o. Then I remembered. This guy who came at school to play guitar and make us sing when I was 3. The very same smell. O_O I had forgotten him but with this particular (bad) smell, I've even remembered a full song he used to sing!
What a beautiful thing. Your nose I mean!

Cuba by albercriso
One of the rare places on the planet where art has not greatly benefited from the Internet, and the free expression its unfettered discussion encourages, has been Cuba.
The official U.S. economic embargo of Cuban goods has been in place since 1960, making the sale of art to wealthy American investors a hassle involving shipping through third

Top Ten Sci Fi Weapons On FilmLet the nerd debate RAGE!Top Ten Sci Fi Weapons On Film3 years ago in Personal More Like This
10: Phased plasma rifle (in a 40 watt range) - The Terminator
Thanks to some superb camera work, editing and sound effects, the weapons seen in The Terminator's future sequences packed a gut-wrenching punch that was light years away from the pew-pew lasers of yesteryear. As he demonstrated in Aliens, James Cameron had a particular way of giving his fanciful ordnance real substance and weight, and the future he depicts in 1984's The Terminator is genuinely the stuff of nightmares. If only McG had looked to these sequences for inspiration when making Terminator Salvation, maybe he could have recaptured some of the oppressive sense of foreboding and hopelessness that James Cameron brought to his classic original. Just look at the sequence where a Terminator blasts its way into a human compound near the end of the film. The intruder's every move has a menacing sense of purpose, while the destructive power of the Plasma Rifle it carries is perfectly depi

Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art SchoolsAs much as I love my school, Academy of Art University, it's not necessary to attend a special art school in order to learn about art. Because of the internet, there are plenty of resources available for those who are self-motivated and eager to learn.Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art Schools2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll start with some of the cheapest resources, ending with more expensive ones:
1. Blogs, podcasts and livestreams. Most professional artists keep blogs, and these things are free treasure troves of information. The best blogs don't only show off art, they also give tips about the business of art and introduce you to new resources. Try starting with Muddy Colors, a super informative blog run by several professional painters and sculptors: http://muddycolors.blogspot.com/ For podcasts, check out Chris Oatley's artcast: http://chrisoatley.com/category/podcasts/ Also check out the Awesome Horse Studios livestream: http://www.awesomehorsestudios.com/

Artwork copyright © Wilson Williams, Jr.
With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren’t sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how do you respond?

advice on some stuff to look up before tutorialsso im gonna be starting to make some tutorials soonadvice on some stuff to look up before tutorials3 years ago in Personal More Like This
before that you should look up some informations
you probably noticed that in my work it is often hard to distinguish if im using a zbrush model or just painined it all in photoshop
reason for that is simple.
my realism rendering is greatly based on 3 d rendering processes.
by this i mean as i learned 3d i became aware of the stuff we usually visually take for granted.
qualities of material, importance of reflectivity, ambient occlusion, and subsurface scattering.
to any 3d artist these are everyday terms, while 2d artists usually paint them without often even being aware of wheat they are really doing
for instance , a 3d artist will at any given point use 2 types of shadows. cast shadows from a direct lightsource, and ambient occlusion shadows which naturally appear more intensively the closer planes of an object are together.
i can get into this and make it a long discussion , but easier w

Drawing tips - tutorialHello watchersDrawing tips - tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some people ask me how I learned to draw and what tips I can give them! So I wrote a tutorial and hope it will help! Here are my tips for you to become a better drawer!
First of all a good drawing stands with good materials. Good paper (no copy paper) and good pencils. If you're not sure, the expensive ones are mostly pretty good! For graphite I use Staedtler Mars Lumograph and for colour Faber-Castell "Polycromos".You need to use different numbers of pencils: 4H for very light areas and 6B for the dark areas. A big contrast in a drawing makes a better drawing! You can't make a good drawing with one HB pencil. You need a 6B or 4B to create more depth in the drawing.Choose a good picture. The greatest drawer in the world can't make a good drawing from a bad picture. A high-resolution image is necessary to see all the details! Next to the high-resolution, it has to be an interesting picture. The result could be a beautiful drawing, however a boring image wouldn't attract a

For starters you can now put stairs upside down. Not a big feature, nor one that really "helps" you play the game. But it is nice for building roofs and curves and helps compliment the building aesthetics better.
There were tweaks and changes to the lighting system, mostly surrounding last week's flub of the lighting effects I suspect. I haven't personally encountered any problems with the lighting, but that's probably due to me playing an already established world and not a new one from scratch...
The biggest change, however, is a new "mob" you can create to help defend villagers. The Iron Golem. Much like the snow golem mob you create by making a snowman and plopping a pumpkin on it's head, the Iron Golem i
