What is a Model?
Simply put, a model is a person employed for the purpose of posing for an artist. This can be for a painter, sculptor, animator, photographer, etc. For the sake of this article, we will be looking at models for photography. We will also be further defining a model as someone who has agreed to pose or act for your photography project, versus a brief subject such as a person on the street.
Why Work With a Model?
A model brings a lot to the table for a photographer, particularly when it comes to b

Introduction to Cross StitchingCross StitchingIntroduction to Cross Stitching1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Cross stitch is one of a number of embroidery stitches, but usually the one most people are familiar with. Whether it was in a school art class or just randomly picking up a cross stitch kit as a kid, a lot of us have tried it at some point. Lets delve into this popular stitch a little bit.
What is a cross stitch?
As the name suggests, is is simply a cross, or an 'X' stitched with thread onto canvas. Typically, it's used to make a picture or a pattern. The stitch will form a complete square, and in this regard it is quite similar to pixel art. Through the placement of individual stitches adjacent to one another, an overall image will eventually appear.
It's an incredibly simple stitch, but can take some time to master. Like many crafts, it can be difficult to notice the

It's not subbed, but from what I got, it's about America's birthday and how France gave him the Statue of Liberty. And then England tries to find something to give America for his birthday.

Tokyo bluesEXTREME STREET PHOTOGRAPHY - VTokyo blues1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Are there places were street photography is impossible? Are there countries easier than others, or harder than others? How is it street shooting like in exotic places, or places you never visited, places that are completely different from what you are used to? I asked a few street photographers around the world to share with us their experiences.

Japan is a fascinating country with an unusual mix of the traditional and modern. It's a magical place filled with anime, cosplayers, samurai, sushi, and all the strangest things imaginable. Wrong! Well, not really, but this is just the cliché, outer covering. When newcomers just scratch the surface of this country, this cliché is all they find. But, in reality, Japan is a place like any other: full of human beings who have normal lives with all their little dr

Creating comics makes me wiserI am speaking for myself when I say creating comics makes me wiser.Creating comics makes me wiser2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I find that it's one thing to write well, another to draw well, and even more challenging to do both well together seamlessly and simultaneously.
I pay more attention to the details in life, both visually, emotionally, mentally and socially what makes people tick, cry, fume, laugh and downright puzzled. I record fascinating ordinary conversations and sights. I organize my memories differently. I have with me not only my own, but so many others. I collect experiences.
I desire to understand human development, how the relationships we create with one another forges such a diversity of personalities, how we physically age and keep our youthfulness. I desire to understand larger systems at work, institutions, governance, criminal, legal, environmental and ecological. I desire to be open to different ways of beings, their belief systems, their culture, their history, their language and traditions. I wonder more.

I'm just showing you what works for me, so this is a "you can try this" and not a "this is the only way you can do it".
As you might know wigs are made out of plastic fibers. Plastic is a heat bendable material, so this is the essence of the both methods I will show you. Styling your wig with heat will also work for curling it, making spikes and so on. Please be careful whenev
