Interested in Dreamworks? Lighting ResourceSo I attended a talk by Bert Poole - He's currently serving as a CG Supervisor on their new movie "The Croods" scheduled for release in March 2013. His most recent movie, you all know of is How to Train Your Dragon, where he was also a CG Supervisor. If you don't know what that means, that means he worked on lighting C: What I'm putting below is from notes I took during his lecture.Interested in Dreamworks? Lighting Resource4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
His job is to take the directors vision and make the movie look like it. He's making compositions and helping the story to better read. If you've ever talked to me on DA for three or more posts, you might have heard me blab about my major and what I'd like to do. I'd like to do into Lighting, animation second. I just don't feel my skills are as suited for animation, even though I really enjoy it.
Before they start lighting, they work on color Keys
Color Keys are painted works that are used to indicate:

Auctioning My Character With MANY Extras!So I'm selling this guy:Auctioning My Character With MANY Extras!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I won't draw it anymore, I guess I just ended up getting bored of it. And many other people seems to really like it so I thought I should just sell it to someone else. And I really need to raise some money for a new computer ;n; mine is really old and slow and could just break at any time.
With the character you will also have the right to use the stuff I commissioned from other peoples + gifts I received of this character!(I won't need it anymore anyway)

I can't really choose or decide a price...
So I will simply leave it to the best offer after a few days. if I get any decent offer.
Please, keep in mind that it's still a bit hard for me to be selling my character and I probably won't

The VoidWhen I lost my faith in god, it was no great personal cataclysm. It simply fell away. My fall was a snake sloughing its skin or a woman removing her coat on an overwarm day. Faith was simply something I no longer needed. But I can't pretend there wasn't a void. There was and there still is. There may always be. That void is what I feel when I think about dying. Do not mistake me, I am not afraid of death. Not at all. Not even a little bit. But I regret. I regret that my story will end. I regret that my loved ones' stories will end. I regret that I won't see others' stories through. Most of all, I regret that I won't see how the big story ends.The Void2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For a while I buried myself in the idea that SCIENCE WILL SAVE US! Ray Kurzweil's Singularity will allow me to achieve everlasting life through technology! It is plausible- a lot more plausible than the notion that there is some magical bearded Middle Eastern guy in the sky who created a strict conditional-admittance everlasting utopia for

Art Features (November)Since I'm already back, I feel like doing some art features as wellArt Features (November)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm terribly sorry that the commissions on hold are taking too long to be finished (school matters). There is a list of it in my memo so I haven't forgotten even a single bit of them. I'm actually working on them one by one since last week, so for the last time I'll be asking for your patience. I'll make sure it wouldn't happen again the next time I re-open my commissions.
ANYWAY, so I was browsing dA lately and found these beautiful pieces which deserves a feature. If you'll like it, try checking out their gallery and give them some love ♥ Some of the works here are from those new friends that I've made

Almost small-sized Japanese Dogs became extinct or unified to one breed of Shiba till 20C. But some breeds are still reminding quietly. One is Sanin Shiba[山陰柴], another is Kawakami Ken[川上犬].
They Kawakami Ken have one old tradition. They are descended from Ookami[狼] (Japanese Wolves).
Their fur are a bit longer than general small-sized Japanese Dogs -Shiba-. Colouring of their fur is often the "Wolf Colour", which is a mix of dun, orcher and tawny white as wolv
Belated Rome UpdateHey guys. I know I said that I'd get an update about my trip to Rome out in the next day or two after arriving back. Well, that's a harsh lesson learnt. I'm lazy beyond all reason.Belated Rome Update2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have, however, finally got round to grabbing some of the marvellous selection of media I took on my exciting adventure, so feel free to take a gander at the finest Italy has to offer.
Firstly, the place I was staying at had a little pond with four fish and two terapins. Terapins are extremely cool.
I'd like to just take this point to note again that I am really, truly an exceptionally lethargic being, and that consequently I cannot be rectum'd to resize or photoshop any of these images. Some of them might be best viewed at 50% or something, since they're probably pretty grainy up-close in most cases.
The first day we left for the airport at around 2 am, then we finally arrived at Rome at around midday. We went to see this place which was probably a Roman Catholic church. Prob

Cheederian biology...bionerd alert Taxonomy of Metafelis lamnisCheederian biology...bionerd alert6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Cheederians are mammals, belonging to the order carnivora, suborder feliformia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feliformia(meaning cat-like carnivores; felines, civets, hyena's, mongooses). The belong to the family felidae (cats) and have their own genus metafelidae. The first metafelids probably appeared after the splitting after the major splitting of machairodontinae and felinae within the felidae. The first cheederian-like metafelids maybe have evolved from the genus pseudaeulurus, 15 million years ago (but I still have think about the impact of the metaphysical flows on feline evolution).
Within the metafelidae genus exist four species; the smallest is a and mainly forest dwelling cat living on the southern hemisphere. This is the canovine ( Metafelis silvae . The other, larger metafelid of the southern hemisphere is the javine ( Metafelis arvalis ). This is a slender, long lined and mainly short

Find a place or situation that inspires you:
Yes, you've all probably heard this a lot of times, but it's true. Finding places that you like can inspire you to do more art/writing! That place doesn't have to be quiet, it can be a huge city bursting with life and sound! Places won't only inspire you, but so will situations. Taking a walk around your city or even you neighborhood can inspire you. Try going to special events that take places. See how people interact! Just like a place, these situations don't have to be happy or very community-like. Sometimes bad situations can inspire artist's/writer's to express their feelings through art or writing.
Pull up old ideas:
