Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
You all may have seen those old masterpieces – painted in impasto techniques with rich and bold use of thick coats of colours and you have wondered how on earth they could do that.
So lets take a peek in the old masters' tools and techniques.
Today we will talk about a less used traditional technique – painting with a knife. Though it's a second most famous technique but not much artists use this technique.
Painting with a knife results in excellent textures, helps in bold application of thick rich colours, and, gives a whole new different level and style to your paintings.
Painting knives are very useful in impasto technique – both in acrylics and oils. Besides interesting textures, this certain tool gives you more control over paint and opens up a lot of ways to experiment. In one sentence, painting with a knife brings up your painting styles at a new height.

Self Portrait Challenge!Ok, so this is kinda linking back with something I thought about doing aages ago. But the main idea came from talking with some of you lovely people and the comments from this journal here: http://fav.me/d61xe9iSelf Portrait Challenge!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The power of self-perception, and the confidence (or lack thereof) you gain from it, does affect how you act and the choices you make in your life. And no I'm not talking about the whole "you are beautiful" thing so much as, how you see and percieve yourself. How we see ourselves is completely different to how other people see us.
I do notice this a lot, being a stock artist and having lots of artists draw me. One was worried that I'd be offended that he drew my legs a little large or something like that. Hell, doesn't bother me. Draw me as you see me, as how you percieve me, as how you want your art to turn out. The rest is superfluous really, since I play a character in my stock sets and none of them are really set as a piece to show me as well, me.
So that's my idea. Kinda l
The Dream ProjectWhen I was in college I ran an online RPG called "Sky's End"The Dream Project2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We played twice weekly for three years.
hundreds of sessions.
A whole world of adventure.
But times change.
I ran the game with two friends, one who I was infatuated with (and she became my girlfriend), the other who was a close female friend. But things change. Towards the end of my college career, I ended the relationship with the one girl... and the fallout of that (and other things) largely ended my friendship with the other.
The game concluded successfully, regardless, and since then I haven't looked back (much).
Sometimes when I look back over the wreckage of past experiences, past decisions, I come across these little "artifacts" that take me back to the time we were working on this story together. It's a melancholy, bitter sweet feeling.
I still love this project fiercely: Sky's End. It was a wonderful mix of poignant, wild, emotional, fun, occasionally racy exploration of a world with

The Mark of the Beast - Clients from HellFrom the "Clientsfromhell" website...The Mark of the Beast - Clients from Hell2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The best way to avoid a lot of complaints that come with freelancing is to screen clients. However, not every client from hell has a pair of horns sticking out of their forehead. Here are some signs that you may be making a deal with the devil:
Ambiguous expectations: A client is employing you because they lack the skillset or resources to complete a project themselves. However, the client should have a clear idea of what they're after. Failing that, they should be eager to help you help them figure it out. Clients who fail this test have project scopes balloon overnight, or they react with anger and confusion when their idea of what they wanted doesn't match the freelancer's blind attempts to give it to them.
Unappreciative: A client's expectations may not be explicitly tied to the project itself; they may expect behaviour, time, or discounts for no other reason other than they think they deserve it. Unfortunately,
Apparel Collection: Nerdy BirdCreativity can be associated with the nature of birds -- very capricious, observant, exploratory, and able to fly free and far in every direction. Imagine that you’ve gathered your tools and your focus is sharp. From a bird’s-eye view, you are ready to jump into your project knowing you have what you will need to succeed.Apparel Collection: Nerdy Bird3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This concept has really intrigued me for a while, and I have drawn a few iterations. At first, I was inspired to make a coy bird with a nest that was formed with letters. The interlocking shapes of "Wildstyle" letters (an intricate form of graffiti) often reminds me of weaving or nest building. I began building this piece by stacking different drawings and a photo of a neighborhood power plant with a limited palette.
This bird was a bit too simple, so I pushed the complexity and the narrative of the character by adding fun words into the composition.
It’s fun to write into a drawing. It can often add feelings and meaning to the visual story th
In Defense of Mary SueThis has been brewing in me for some time, the first time I heard of this was just recently, because I didn't care to learn of it before a friend cried to me because someone called her character that because of how she looked. In doing my research I've found out more and what most call a 'Mary Sue' is what we all want our characters, even ourselves to be: Flawless, Loved by All, Smart, Brave, Kind...in short Perfect.In Defense of Mary Sue2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We do not write them this way because it is not realistic...but we picture them that way in our heads. Anyone who says they don't is a liar. I have had my OC for years and she is my base OC, I do not have many, I modify her for the stories because to me she is perfect, but flawed as to appear real. But in my fantasies, the ones I do not write down because I don't want to be judged for a silly fantasy, she is stronger than Lord Voldemort, smarter than Hermoine, braver than Harry, more loyal than Ron, more cunning than Draco and could catch the heart of every boy at Ho
Thanks for the DDSo I woke up this morning, got on Skype, and my good friend chromeantennae messages me something about 2 DDs.

Really simple, this is a must buy for people that wants to do manga. Its really cheap plugin, cost 18 dollars. Saves you tons of time, and its really easy to use, you control it.
I personally love the perspective lines with antialized option, in that way i dont need to buy other softwares for that, you can even add colors to them.

Wacom windows usersAs you know been having pressure problems on my tablets for almost 2 years, i have two computrs a laptop and a desktop with windows 8.1 and inboth had same problem. The reason its because when you install your tablet and plug it, windows install his own drivers that clash with the wacom drivers, this happens all the time you plug the wacom, they are downloaded automatically. They are really old drivers from 2006.Wacom windows users2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So if you have the same files as i do as you can see on the image, the only way to stop them its disabling them. like i did on the image.
The important one its the pen one, if you disable the digitizer depending on the version of your tablet it can make it crash, but if your tablet its new model, lyou wont have a problem disabling the two, but the one that fixes the pressure its the hid-compliant pen
Dont worry, it wont crash your tablet, it will work fine, but now i can feel the 2048 leve
