ContestEDIT 13/4/15 - There has been a new rule added that you must put in the story's description that it's for our contest.Contest1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Yes people, it's finally happening. After sorting out all the preferences and prizes, :iconwolf12832: and I have finally confirmed the contest, which starts today!
The theme for the contest is Spring, to fit into the theme of Easter and the new sunny weather that has come out to play! We didn't want to do a very specific theme since we all want your creative vibes to flow so there's not many rules for this theme. Just make sure it is to do with the weather Spring or just what happens in Spring and it'll meet the requirements for the contest.
However, there are some rules:
* The story must be within the theme. If it is submitted into the Contest folder and is not at all related to Spring, then it will be disqualified.
* You MUST upload it to the Contest folder. We might make exceptions if you make a mistake, but if you do not upload it into the correct folder then we wo

How is your Chroma?As artists we all know that color is our friend, whether full spectrum, monochromatic, or simply black and white. But knowing just how to use this very special friend can be frustrating at times or just downright confusing (trust me, I've been there plenty before!) This blog is for those of us who work traditionally (not to worry my futuristic friends, I'll be writing a blog specifically for you as well!) Here are some terms you need to become acquainted with: chroma, value, tint, shade, and intensity/saturation.How is your Chroma?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Plated DessertsPlating can be such an underrated art form at times. I've often heard it dismissed as 'boring', 'sterile' and criticised for all looking the same. Maybe we just have a tendency to lust after the rustic, messy desserts. Maybe we like to tear down what is seen as a hoity-toity way of presenting food. Or maybe we just don't see the skill and technique that goes into plating.Plated Desserts2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Skillful plating up of food requires a good eye, a steady hand and a flair for design. Careful consideration goes into everything from which way the dish is offset, to the type of garnishes on it, to the type of plate it is presented on. It, in turn, necessitates learning a whole host of other skills and techniques to create the garnishes that adorn the dish.
These deviants show off their plating skills with a host of delicious desserts.

In Defense Of Art, The Artist, And The TruthNote: This journal entry is a response to another one, "In Defense Of Making A Living Through Art" by Droemar. My argument began as a long winded comment that mirrored the sentiments expressed there, but attempted to provide a different perspective on the matter as well. It has now been added here by request. I encourage everyone to give the original journal a read, as the subject matter it tackles is important, both mercilessly heartfelt and honest. At times it requires great bravery to stand up and admit the truth; I commend the artists that do it every day of their lives, but perhaps it's time the rest of the world learn something of courage too. I suppose this was my attempt to do so, and whether or not it changes anything in your life, is up to you.In Defense Of Art, The Artist, And The Truth2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This whole issue pisses me off.
Let me start by saying that I don't know if this post, my post, changes anything. It probably doesn't, but it's a perspective that I think desperately needs to be hear
I found a great stress relieverOkay so typhoon is today so no school for me YAAY (don't worry about the typhoon damage I'm fine :3) so I was pretty much bored. Sooooooo I made a cake. Well, it's still baking atm, BUT I MADE A CAKE. And I discovered an amazing stress reliever that works wonders for me. Here's the story:I found a great stress reliever2 years ago in Personal More Like This
-puts mix, eggs, water, and oil into the bowl and mixes it, puts the eggshells into the sink-
-mixes it and stuff and then is waiting for something-
-notices the eggshells in the sink-
-picks one up in one hand-
-It shatters and kind of just explodes-
-I laugh like a retard for like a full 3 minutes-
-pick up the second egg and do the same-
-laugh like a retard even more-
-do it to the third egg-
Seriously though. Take an eggshell. Put it in one hand. Punch it with the other. It is amazing. I don't know why. Maybe it's just my murderous intent (when I was beating the mix I shouted in my head DIE BITCHES DIE to the egg yolks being broken) but it is fun. Just, punchi
9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT1. FORGIVING - Oil is, even today, still one of the easiest and most forgiving mediums you can work in. Creating an oil painting is in fact relatively easy compared to other mediums such as watercolor or pastels.9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. EASY TO CONTROL - Oil paints are easy to put onto a canvas or panel. You just put some paint on your brush and rub it on the canvas or panel. The paint will generally not run or move.
3. SMOOTH BLENDING - Oil paints are king of the ring when blending colors together and creating subtle blends. Wet-on-wet is the sure fire way to get a smooth transition in your painting.
4. COLOR STABILITY - One great property of oil paints is that they don't change color when they dry as opposed, for example, to acrylics or watercolor. Oils stay pretty-much the same for a long period of time (however, in a very long period of time, oil paintings have tendency to yellow).
5. EASY TO REMAKE - It's simple, just scrape the paint off with a paint knife and repa

Also posted here at CRLiterature.
For my 15th literature competition I want to challenge people to do something that may benefit their writing, so I present to you all the Devil's in the Detail Competition.
I'm challenging you to think of something that a person has to do at least once a month, but it could be every minute of every day, and then put it in a fantasy environment.
Brushing your teeth if you are a vampire
Walking your dog onboard a space station
Having a prostate exam when everyone else on the planet is a zombie. (eek!)
The challenge is really to focus your mind on how your characters behave and interact with their environments and how the environment being different than yours (the writers) can affect how they do those things. Hopefully this will

ATB - An alternative to watermarks: MetadataWe have all seen watermarks on images, here on dA and around the internet. And even though they have become a necessary step in the aid of preventing art theft/misuse of art, they are not always ideal. It's really hard to signature or watermark an icon that is 50x50 pixels and still show it off, for example. And even in larger pieces of art, sometimes they just look ugly or, like the watermark option offered by dA, take up too much of the image.ATB - An alternative to watermarks: Metadata2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
