Converting Sims2 and Sims3 to MMD - A rough guide.Here's short instructions on how I figured out to do this today. I knew how to get the textures but had no idea how to get the mesh, so yh.Converting Sims2 and Sims3 to MMD - A rough guide.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I just got "SimPE" the sims2 package editor.
Then I opened the ".package" file downloaded from a sims2 site.
------Getting the 3D body---------
To extract the 3d body you need to use a sim2 package with a mesh file in it.
Click on the list of files that says GMDC, and on the lower left check all the parts in that box that says "Generic Rcol Editor"
Click on preview to see a small image of what it looks like.
Then click "Export" and use DirectX Exporter. Then import the x file into PMDeditor. I think you need to scale it "x10" to see it, not sure though. But yeah. Then you just need to assign the materials.
Open the package containing the textures you want.
Scroll down on the left and select "Texture Image"

Tutorial Showcase #14DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal. So here we go!Tutorial Showcase #1411 months ago in Art Features More Like This

Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop.Hey everyone, just wanted to bring to your attention a plugin that might be useful for you. It's called Lazy Nezumi, and its main function is to help smooth your strokes out when you're drawing. So, if you want really tight, smooth lineart, or just clean lines in general it's pretty great. In a way, it lets you create a digital stroke closer to how you would on paper or a canvas, it just gives you more control. It's akin to the Lazy Mouse feature in Zbrush, or the Steady Stroke feature in Sketchbook Pro (which I'd highly recommend for anyone doing lineart, it has other great features as well).Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
There's a free demo for 30 days you can try out first and see if you like it. It has other features as well, but the one I find the most useful is the "pulled string" method under position processing, when you click details. It's something you might have to try to understand, but it can be super useful.
The main issue I see is that

So... this is the first part in featuring some extremely useful tutorials which can be found on DA (and some from off-site as well). This one isn't limited on digital art only, but the rest will be. I wanted to post everything in one journal, but theres 200 thumbnail limit, sooo yeah I decided to divide everything in following categories: sketching/referencing/anatomy etc, General, blending, steps, color, perspective/Composition/value, Walkthrough, nose, hair, skin, photoshop/wacom, brushes, eyes, lips, textures, ears, fabric/clothes, environment, misc (how to paint water, fire, rocks, rain, clouds, pearls etc. ).

In every journal I will also include some interesting videos that I think you should check out And, if you know about some tutorials that can be helpful to other artists, note me, thank you :heart
Street Painting Chalk Art | Pastel and Chalk GuideStreet Painting Chalk Art Pastel and Chalk GuideStreet Painting Chalk Art | Pastel and Chalk Guide1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When I started street painting I relied heavily by the recommendations of other artists of what products to use. I really didn't find a whole lot of information in the beginning, and I soon discovered that not all Chalk/Pastels are created equally. This is a good thing because depending on what kind of surface you are working on will call for different grade of product. And learning what's best to use is just trial and error. Not only that, but artists have different styles and methods they like to use and the products will always reflect that. I'm only 3 years into working with this medium and admittedly so I'm still very much learning, but I figured I would take a stab at writing down an "Art Pastel and Chalk Guide" to help any beginners out there.
Keep in mind I live in the USA, so I'm going to be linking to stores and products I know of in the US. But I'm sure these can be found in your area as well in

1. Download any model you want in .mdl format. Mdl is Half Life 2 game mod format.
2. Import (open) this file with any 3D programm,that can open .mdl files (3DS Max,Blender or any other programm)
P.S. I'm not sure,that Blender can open .mdl files.
3. Export (save) this file in the .x format or in the .obj format (any 3D programm can save in .obj format).
4. If you convert it into .x file,just open it in MikuMikuDance. If you convert it to the .obj format, just open it with Metasequoia and save as .x file format.
Warning! Make sure,that you have permission from the creator to convert files.

-never feel like you're bothering someone when you want to ask for help, even if they are it's not like you're demanding answers
-ask for critiques and don't get offended when someone isn't sugarcoating it, even harsh critiques can be helpful
-don't be afraid to heavily reference or even trace pictures when you're practicing anatomy, it's not a crime
-play around with filters and color settings before you upload a drawing, who knows, it might look better
-if you make a blinking animation of a drawing don't pick a pose where the horse is mid movement, it looks like a blinking statue
-to resize an entire finished picture in SAI go to canvas -> change resolution -> width (not pixel width) -> type in the width -> ok

Paint Tool Sai on Mac with tablet pressureHow to: Get Paint Tool Sai running on a Mac with tablet pen pressure supportPaint Tool Sai on Mac with tablet pressure2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Surprisingly a lot of people don't know that you can do this.
In every stream someone asks, "What program is that?"
Artist replies, "Paint Tool Sai"
Then someone else says, "I want Sai but I can't use it because I have a Mac,"
Not true! You actually can. It's not that difficult, either.
Using virtualization software, you can get Sai running on a Mac inside a window as if it were a native Mac program.
I use it to ink almost all of my pictures, in fact.
Fair warning: This does cost a bit of money. You're looking at at about $150 at minimum to buy both Sai and Windows licenses, and add another $50-80 if you choose to get priced virtualization software.
At that point you might want to consider instead getting Photoshop Elements 11 for Mac ($100), but if you want to run Windows software and games on your Mac as well as Sai, this would be the best option.

How to get the most out of your keywordsThe keywords of your prints play an important role in how your artwork is discovered using our Print Shop's search feature. This will enable you to search through the prints available on deviantART using their keywords. Here are some tips for using keywords that will help people find your work:How to get the most out of your keywords7 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Use as many words as you can
The more words you use, the more times your print will be viewed. Let's say, for instance, you are posting an image of some lovely roses. Some keywords you may use are "roses, flowers, plants, nature, Valentine's Day, romance, love, gift, bouquet, red, bloom, blossoms..." and anything else you can think of (while keeping it relevant, of course).
Keep them on topic
Sure, putting in "Harry Potter" and "hot girls" will get you more hits; however, there is a very slim chance the people searching for those words are going to buy your print if it doesn't have to do with the subject they've searched for. Try to keep your keywords rel

What I personally find the hardest to draw is feet and hands. I found that with a lot of practice and a lot of frustrating mistakes my feet and hands actually look at the very least almost the way i want them to be.
Now my favorite Style of drawing is Anime or sometimes semi-realism, and i find that by doing studies of the more traditional style realism actually helps improve my anime pictures greatly. For instance i would practice drawing my hands and feet in different positions holding different things and from different angles. I also find it extremely helpful while i'm drawing and i'm having a particularly hard time drawing a hand or a foot in a certain position i will stop for a
