The essentials of Macro photography.Hi, deviants! This week is Community week, and I am giving my best to introduce some essential tips concerning macro photography.The essentials of Macro photography.2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But first of all: What is macro photography?
Macro photography - what is it about?
Wikipedia tells us things like "extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size" (Source: Wikipedia.org)
But is that really all that matters? It is a common fact that many people believe that macro photography is photography which refers to life size

GBD vs HomophobiaHello, all, and welcome to my anti-homophobia/anti-anti-gay Journal, where I will attempt to come up with a factual argument for as many anti-gay arguments as I can. If you have any other arguments you would like to add to this list, or any additional info you would like me to add to this Journal, leave me a comment below.GBD vs Homophobia1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's a choice!
When did you choose to be straight? Did you wake up one morning and say 'today I'm going to like the opposite gender!' And who would choose to go through the amount of stress LGBT people go through? Bullying, hatred, etc? And even if it was a choice, so what? People choose to be assholes and yet they can get married.
Hundreds of animal species exhibit homosexuality.
And you know what else is unnatural? Cars. Vaccines. Fact

Colorists and Clean-Up Artists Wanted!Hey, all you lovely folks!Colorists and Clean-Up Artists Wanted!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
How would you feel about being a colorist or clean-up artist on my thesis film, Welcome to Hell?
Here's the blog, check it out!
Basically, my second semester is devoted to clean-up and coloring, but it's going to take me forever and I'm kind of counting on the fact that I have one or two people who have offered to help me. But if I can count on more people to help me--and definitively--that'd be even better!
This journal is just a way for me to gauge interest and feel out the possibility of having followers help me out!
Here's basically what you'd be doing:
Colorists: You would be using Photoshop or programs like Photoshop to basically fill-in all of the color on the characters! If you know how to use the fill/paint bucket tool you're pretty much qualified! You may also have to go in and touch up the parts that the fill tool wont reach. Something like a sample "style shot" with color palettes would be provided for you

Unrestricted Use DirectoryEDITUnrestricted Use Directory2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just an update. I may have doubled some up but its near midnight here so Ill sort any doubles tomorrow!
Many years ago, the amazing LawrenceDeDark created the original Unrestricted Stock Directory. A place for artists to come and find a list of stock providers who offer their resources as unrestricted. This is an update on an old list (2009, eep!) <3
Unrestricted stock can be used for both personal and commercial projects, but it cannot be redistributed as stock. You are not required to obtain permission prior to using the stock off site or in DA prints. The only requirements are that the stock provider be notified and credited.
1. You have to give credit.
2. You have to let the provider know.
3. You can not redistribute as a resource
Thats it, Thats as easy as Unrestricted Stock gets.
To be added to the list please NOTE me with either
Unrestricted stock account or unrestricted stock folder as the title please. This makes it easier for me.

Leading an Even More Creative Life in 2015!I hope you all had a fantastic holiday, and that you've got 2015 off on the right foot. This is pretty important, because in many cases we all have lots to do for school, work, or life, and for many of us this takes us away from our Creative Goals! Unless ART is your profession, chances are you have to find ways to incorporate a more creative lifestyle just like you would a workout routine!

I have. I'm taking more photos and posting them regularly using the new DeviantArt Mobile App, and I'm placing my Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid next to the TV so that I can draw while watching mindless television.

Okidoki guys! this is my second contest and i wanted to do something for Christmas! so, let's start!
Contest's themes are two:
♥ Draw a Christmas scene
♥ Draw me a character
THEME O1.: DRAW A CHRISTMAS SCENE.
how the title say, you have to draw my characters (you can found them here). You can draw just one, two or all of them! The pics have to remember Christmas. Maybe a cold day at home with your friend drinkin chocolate or reading a book, choose you!
THEME O2.: DRAW A CHARACTER.
i Always wanted a cute character who remember me Christmas. With "Christmas" i dont mean the festivity or the day. but i mean "feeling" or "things". Like cuteness, warm or snow, chocolate, softness, scarves, hats, reindeer etc etc.
So, i want a character with natural colors (browns, White, grey etc..) and a cute h
PE: Forum OverviewAfter Astralseed's awesome article on Breaking Into Chatrooms, today's article will be focused on providing a general overview of the forum!PE: Forum Overview2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Within the forum, there are many Forums that you can enter into to create threads for discussion. These threads encourage other people to make posts in response to the 'original post' created by the 'original poster' - the person who created the thread. If you scroll down the forum page, there are many Forums that focus on a specific topic so that all threads within that forum must relate to the specific topic of the Forum itself. For example, if you stumble across the 'Gaming Forum', the specific topic is 'Gaming', so all threads within the 'Gaming Forum' must relate to 'Gaming'. This is important because if your thread does not relate to Gaming, it will be moved or locked.

I think is sooo important for artists to read this, because it is literally the best and only advice I think you'll really ever need.
I realized this the hard way after suffering through an industry that really squelched my motivation. For three+ years I worked hard in the industry here in Vancouver, moved up, changed studios ... I eventually could no longer draw for myself at home. I felt so unmotivated and I didn't understand why. I slipped into depression and battled with this for the past two years, desperately trying to find a way to feel like myself again. I even went back to school for 3D, hoping to invest myself in a project I'd been dreaming of, but ended up finding school was almost as creatively crippling as my job. After a really rough 8 months I went back into almost exactly the same job I had left, but was on an even worse project than before ... those months were dark for
