FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weaponEdit: Many of you asked for a transformation vid. So, I made this video clip. Enjoy!FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weapon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my former journal I asked if you would like for me to explain how my Starseeker weapon was made. Since there were quite some people that would like me to do so, I decided to make this FAQ journal. So, I hope I'l answer some questions you might have about this curious weapon and I hope I can explain it well enough for you all to understand.
Note that I made the weapon a couple of months ago and I don't remember everything very clear of the making of it. But, I'll do my best.
So, first things first: The Starseeker
Serah's weapon is quite the interesting one. This because it's a transformable one just like her sister's, Lightning. Nonetheless, it's a transformable one from bow to blade, which original form is none other than the cute moogle companion, Mog.
Of course, Final Fantasy is all about 'Fantasy', so making an exact workin

Text Brush in deviantART muroWe just launched a new tool to Beta Testers that allows you to paint words onto your canvas in deviantART muro!Text Brush in deviantART muro2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The text brush lets you create visual art using words. You can change the text and font from the bottom bar, and you can also set whether or not the text repeats itself continuously. When you click the font button, you'll be prompted with a modal that contains an extensive list of fonts to choose from! The sample text will update based on the font you select, so you can get a sense of what you'll be painting before you paint it.
As an example of the great things you can create with this tool, you can check out mudimba's I Have A Dream, or watch a redraw of mudimba at work creating art!
Try it out!

Let me tell you straight up. I traced my works. Yes. Traced. If you hadn't noticed already, my drawings were scarily accurate to the 'real thing'. Well, you probably figured out why. Tracing. Yep.
But why did I trace my works?
Why did I trace for so long?
Why didn't I admit it sooner?
Why did I lie?
When I first made this account, I submitted a few deviations, the first one being "Chibi Waitress". I was really into drawing chibis then (mostly for the fact they were easy to draw). I remember my first week or so on deviantART, anxiously waiting for one notificati
How to Write a Story: A Guide by KitaWriting a StoryHow to Write a Story: A Guide by Kita4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello guys! Kita-Angel here again with even more stuff! Today I will be taking the time to make an article about story writing, really the key points, what they are, how you can improve on them and what a story really is, like what brings it all together.
There is going to be a LOT of key stuff here, and it is going to sound like English class in high school all over again. Hooray! But this is valuable stuff, so pay attention. It is definitely worth it!
This guide was written with the intention to help those who lack any experience at all with story writing to know what is required to make a story. After this we can maybe start looking into how to improve what you have worked on!
What Makes a Story
So, what is it that makes a story? Where do people get these amazing ideas for amazing stories? How do we take the idea and make all the components needed?
Generally, in a story you have an Int
DIY Photography Studio Tools A few people have been asking for Studio Lighting tips - whilst there are many articles online that talk about DIY lighting for smaller projects like products and food photography, there isn't much to help promote DIY studio sized lighting. Lighting set ups for portraiture can often be very costly and whilst there is no immediate do-it-yourself solution there are some low-cost ideas out there. Most of the equipment that you need for developing your Photography hobby into something more can be sourced online or in local shops. You don't have to shop at 'studio lighting' or 'backdrop shop' for the proper gear. These simple tips will hopefully help you identify things a lot closer to home and a lot cheaper.DIY Photography Studio Tools 1 month ago in Art Features More Like This

Creating your own studio lighting is possible on a budget. For example, those mini 'pixar' lights that we often use for smaller set ups also come in big! A regular angle-poise lamp with a black backdrop can create just the effec

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

Being happy with your artI've noticed lately, that there's this emotion that leaves people overwhelmed with the massive amount of good art in the community, thinking that they can never become as good or popular as those others. So sad, because skill or popularity in itself shouldn't be the major goal of an art community. I think many people who start out here get so overwhelmed that they forget what it's actually about.Being happy with your art9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Many people out here, sign up to DeviantArt (or any internet art community) in order to publish their work on the internet. They've probably looked around for a while already. They saw those amazing artists that had millions of pageviews, and secretly hoped that by putting their art on the internet, they would be able to do the same. To become madly popular -- a community icon.
Well, sorry to burst your bubble; but it's probably not gonna happen. And if it's gonna happen; it's not going to be soon.

Six Ways to Earn More CommissionsIf youre serious about earning an income with your art, then you have to be serious about marketing yourself. If youre like me, you hate selling you dont like rejection, it makes you nervous and you think youre no good at it. Thats why were artists and not salesmen. Fortunately marketing yourself is kind of an art form. Although I dont have all the answers, Id like to share a little of what Ive learned about the art of marketing ourselves.Six Ways to Earn More Commissions4 years ago in Art Features More Like This

I finally get to translate article about my “Batman Returns” Catwoman costume. And just right time for Halloween x)
I'm very sorry if there are mistakes in the text! And I'm sorry that there are no wip photos, I did not make them, unfortunatelly. But in this article I tried to upload the materials, that helped me to make my own costume.
Well, first of all few words about why I chose this version. I’m a cat person, I always had cats at home and I love them very much. So it’s not a surprise that I also love such an amazing character as Catwoman. And my first meeting with her happened, when I was a child thanks to Tim Burton’s movie “Batman Returns”. I was amazed by Michelle Pfeiffer’s acting and since then her Selina Kyle is the only one for me. She’s beautiful, dangerous and a little crazy, exactly how Catwoman should be. I always loved the stories about transformation of

When we launched the One Cat, One Fruit, One Clock Contest, we asked you to create artwork using three seemingly random things; a cat, a fruit, and a clock. We're excited that so many artists participated and we were really impressed by the creative ideas that were submitted.
The judges narrowed down those entries to 25 semi-finalists, and now the world-wide Chairman of Fotolia Inc., Oleg Tscheltzoff, has selected the final three winners.
Congratulations to the winners and thank you all for participating! And don't forget to watch #StockProject —there might be a new contest someday just saying.

Comics Are ArtComic-Con Journey to the Heart of The New Summer VacationComics Are Art3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Americans have a long summer vacation tradition of visiting the foreign capitals of the world and being sure to spend at least one day in each nation’s most iconic art museum. In Paris, we visit the Louvre. In Madrid, the Prado. In Rome, the Borghese. We feel far more comfortable in identifying the different peoples of our planet through examples of their greatest art works than we do about identifying ourselves as being represented by any one iconic “American” art museum or artist. Maybe the country is just too big for one musuem and so it has always fallen to our pop arts to carry the true visual narrative of what’s going on in the hearts and minds of the masses.
