How is your Chroma?As artists we all know that color is our friend, whether full spectrum, monochromatic, or simply black and white. But knowing just how to use this very special friend can be frustrating at times or just downright confusing (trust me, I've been there plenty before!) This blog is for those of us who work traditionally (not to worry my futuristic friends, I'll be writing a blog specifically for you as well!) Here are some terms you need to become acquainted with: chroma, value, tint, shade, and intensity/saturation.How is your Chroma?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Why I don't like Jack x Elsa :|People will probably hate me for this but I gotta voice my annoyance about the unbelievable amount of Jack Frost x Elsa fanart out there. It's like a plague that can't be avoided, even if you don't even look for it.Why I don't like Jack x Elsa :|1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've never understood why people do crossover-pairings. It's so...random. Pairing characters from a movie up with each other because you think there's something going on between them, well, alright. Creating an own character that fits into the world of the movie, alright. But taking two characters from completely different movies and claiming them to be a couple? Eh, wtf? Yes, I draw Jack, Dolphy and Jim together as well, but those are really just fun images and I don't ship Jack with anyone ( mostly because I see him as the perfection of a big brother and sorta Peter Pan-like ). However I know that the shippers are taking those couples pretty damn serious. There are even fangirls who comment on Dreamworks' and Disney's Facebook pages asking them to make movies with seve

SO IVE BEEN noticing my cat jumping onto the counter a lot lately when Ive gone to sleep, and today I finally caught her and how intrested she seemed to be on that counter. I sneak towards her,and behold there sit a tiny mouse.
xD AND FINALLY AFTER A LOT OF chasing this bastard up and down behind my fridge and finally made it run out of there and under this other funiture which i had a long box laying, It captured itself. Not as smart xD but atleast I managed to rip the box and hoist it up so it couldnt run back out. WOOT time to go outside and let it back into the wild. FAR from my house.
hereis the bugger, it was lucky I was the one who captured it and not my cat. Shes just laying beside the box now hunting it jealously xD
Ive never really had a mouse inside before which stayed for that many days, im pretty sure its because of my bird wh

Everyone hast their own source of insiration.
May it be merely by looking out of the window, having a walk in a vast alley or small forest, by listening to music or by seeing artwork of other artists who express themselves through art and even more. Every single of us finds their own little pathway to getting inspired.
How do you find inspiration?
What inspires you mostly?
Does inspiration for a great idea come to you by looking at a white sheet or thinking of a melody?

Stop harassing the admins, particularly realitysquared. Seriously.
Yeah, you may be mad about it but knock it off.
Going off and being a jerk to someone isn't going to solve the problem at all. So please, stop it.
Don't spam his page and call him names.
Sure, I don't really like him either but there's no reason to go apeshit at him.
He's not going to give you the time of day, trust me. And if he does chances are you won't like what he has to say anyway.
There's other admins to talk to who would most likely be willing to actually listen and talk back.
In light of that, the fact that an admin actually did come forth and display some interest in the subject [fourteenthstar] is kind of interesting, and according to her she'll be talking to the other side mods and staff about the situation with theft. You can read the conversation(s) wit

over your feral human animal!
A couple weeks ago, I went to a raucous furry party.
Oh heavens, that's an odd way to start a personal story.
A good friend of mine called me up, saying that she and her friend were going to a monthly get-together in Orange County where a bunch of furries throw a party open to everyone. Furries...not really my thing. My experience within the furry community is limited to the occasional commission I get, but when it comes to conversing and interacting with furries, I'm a bit inexperienced.
"Just a party?" I ask.
"Yeah, something they do every month."
"Ah, so just a get-together," I breathe a sigh of relief. "Not like a bunch of fursuiters or crazies."
"..." She replies.
"..." I implore.
"..." She laments.
Apparently...it was a bunch of the crazies.
"Yeah, they're actually going to do a fursuit parade."
Quilt Project Assignments!Okay, this was really hard, especially since I had to put seven people on the backup list. If you are on the backup list and are interested in doing cutie mark themed pillowcases to match the quilt, let me know! You'd most likely be doing a 12 inch square themed around the cutie mark of one of the mane six or Celestia/Luna. I have to figure out all the details on that.Quilt Project Assignments!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I sent everyone notes but I know sometimes DA is weird with the note system and I know that people are interested in what everyone got so I will post the list below too. Remember to pre-wash your fabrics and use quilting cottons! If you got one of the mane six you may want to consider including their pets as well, but I will leave that up to you! Mostly I just love Tank and Gummy and would love to see them on there You can do any technique for your square that you want. I imagine a great deal of people will be doing applique, but I'd love to see some piecing as well.

Tea with TobyHi there, and thanks if you're bothering to read this.Tea with Toby1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's not going to be usual journal. I'm going to ask you to just think about doing something really, really incredible. It doesn't take a lot of time, or a lot of effort but if you just understood the difference it would make...
You see, tonight, I've been switching my blog entries from the last two years over to deviantART. I was doing this because... Well, for anyone that doesn't know, I have terminal cancer and when I pass my blog will probably be taken down. I just wanted the posts to go somewhere. And no, don't panic! I'm not going to ask you to read 3 years worth of blog entries.
I'd just like you to read one. And if you could just consider donating blood or bone marrow(stem cells)... I mean, i don't think there's any hope left for me, but if there is, i'd be grateful if someone would be willing to give me that chance. It's not like most people think, so if you'd just give my post a read, you might find it's not as terrifying

It's our fairytale-inspired visual novel, ditching the passive protagonist and banal morals of the original story in sake of a more serious approach. You get to actually re-write the story of Cinderella and shape it in any way you want! We're really happy how it turned out and I hope you'll give it a try and like it too
On my blog there's some more info: screenshots and thoughts about it: http://vinegaria.com/cinders-is-out/
I'd also like to add I'm really grateful that two of Cinders' graphics you see above got Daily Deviations. Thanks, guys!

Types of Artist blues, what helped, what didn'tThere are several artist blues I know of, since I have experienced practically all of them during the past few months since 2011. I will write about how I got them, how I overcome them. What helped, what didn't.Types of Artist blues, what helped, what didn't2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of these blues are professional freelance blues, happens to those who are making their own series/productions and when there's money and risk involved.
Some of these blues are shared by all artists.
Before the production even starts, the fear of it failing caused me to think about failing instead of success. It makes me hesitate about actually working on the project before I even produce anything.
What helped- Refocus on what I am making the project for, what's the true message I try to convey with the project, make that shine, and try to choose a cheap launch platform that makes it cost-effective.
What didn't help- trying to level up on art skill. It helped with my overall art as work for hire, it didn't help with
Anthro vs Furry: A Semantics ProblemI have a dream. A dream that certain artists in the anthro community here will one day, stop being ignorant about what "furry" is...and they will stop using the term incorrectly and discriminating art because of it. Any art community has a right to set limitations on what they accept in specific collections. But being so vague in saying "we only accept anthro, we don't accept furry" brings up a deep rooted semantics issue with the terminology being used. Being an Art Educator and a former community volunteer for this gallery, I cannot sit here and watch the ignorance and not say a word. I see people promoting stamps, design charts and even groups with false information and it sickens me.Anthro vs Furry: A Semantics Problem3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most commonly, I see people using "furry" as a term to describe an art style.
FURRY IS NOT NOT A STYLE. IT IS A SUBJECT MATTER.
ANTHRO is NOT a style either. It is ALSO a SUBJECT MATTER.
Style refers to the unique use of the Elements and Principles of Art and Design within the content of the artwork. S

OC Feature (CLOSED)I figured it was about time to for some feature(s) so I saw this thing by AgentWhiteHawk where you can feature people's OC (original character) when they comment.OC Feature (CLOSED)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. For each person who comments on this journal, I will feature one of their characters. I'll also tell you what I like about them. (I AM ONLY TAKING 15 OF THESE FOR THIS!)
This means I will pick the character to feature. Please, don't go posting a bunch of links to characters, let me choose, aye? :3
2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (or original journalist) in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!
I will apologize in advance if someone who comments gets skipped. If comments fill up fast enough or dA glitches I will try to remedy things accordingly but please, it will be a genuine accident if that does happen so don't get upset. Thank you for understanding.
