How to make complex wire wrapsYES! I'm gonna tell you one of millions of possible ways to make themHow to make complex wire wraps1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If this is your first complex or multi-stone piece try not to get upset if it does not quite turn out as planned this still happens to me and i made dozens of them if not over 100
Follow these steps:
1. pick the stones/beads you want to use. you can pick 2 or 20, it doesn't matter because you can easily add or remove some of them from the plan as you go along
2. arrange them on a flat surface the way you see fit. if you have play doh (or something like it) use it to form a dome and stick the stones into that - it will help you if you are having problems with 3D planning in your head possibly draw a rough sketch of what you are trying to make
3. take the central stone or the largest stone or the one you really want to wrap in a certain way
4. wrap that stone but make sure to leave enough wires to attach the rest to it (thick wires need less length, thin wires more - for example leave 2" of 20ga and

How watercolor can become your friendPeople often ask me for some basic tips on watercolor, so I thought I write a little guide about my experience!^^How watercolor can become your friend1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Disclaimer: This is my personal opinion only. You don't have to agree with all points but you should know I wrote all of them to the best of my belief!
Finding the right tools
I think this is the hardest step. Bad quality supplies can mess up your results and you will lose your fun. That's the reason why I disliked painting with watercolor at school: We only used cheap tools like thin paper which crinkles or brushes which lose hair. Honestly, it's not fun at all picking up all lost hair on your painting or having a finished picture full of wrinkles!
Only when I was lucky to get better quality watercolors, brushes and papers, I fell in love with this traditioal medium!
You don't have to buy the most expensive tools, just make sure buying a higher quality than ordinary "school quality"!
I recommend buying art supplies in a shop for artists.

August Artisan Crafts DD RoundupWow how fast the time passes! I can't believe this is already my third roundup, I'm actually very happy with this month's DDs I think I received a lot of great suggestions for unusual crafts, and I was able to feature some of the most obscure and under-recognized crafts. Please keep the awesome suggestions coming! Remember that I'm specially interested in the original, different and non-ordinary crafts of course I love and consider all the suggestions, but I want to get all the crafts out there. This week I'm looking for etching, knitting, embroidery and clothing.August Artisan Crafts DD Roundup2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

If you are interested, send me a note and we can talk.

All payment is trough Paypal. Half of the payment upfront, and half when the painting is finished.
I will keep you updated as the painting advance, and once I finish, I will send you a high res image of your painting
Here are some examples of what I can do, and rates:
Sketch- bust: $20. Sketch full body: $30
One character, color, no background (or a simple color background) $55
Aditional character: +$10

How to Submit a FilmPerhaps one of the most confusing tasks of finishing your film is getting it from the editing software to the screen. Which export, render, or "Save to..." option do you use? What settings are best for the web? This article will hopefully help clear up some of those questions and get you on your way to a successful gallery submission.How to Submit a Film6 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Step 1 - Pick Your Program
There are many programs you could use to edit your work, but I'm going to give examples of a few popular ones below. Some applications have multiple methods or exporting the final file so make sure you pick the right one!
"Composition > Make Movie" (Please note that you shouldn't use "File > Export" for your video as it severely limits your options!)
Final Cut Pro
"File > Export > Using Quicktime Conversion"
"File > Share > Quicktime > Expert Settings"
"File > Export > Adobe Media Encoder"
Call to Artists!RoosterTeeth is holding a call to artists for RWBY fanart! Your art could appear in the next RWBY DVD, on an RT gallery page, or even on the show itself!Call to Artists!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
You'll need an RT account (which is free!) to enter. Upload the image to your Image Gallery on the RT site, then go to the contest page (linked below) to submit it:
A quick summary of the rules:
You may submit as many pieces as you want. The higher the resolution, the better. At this time, only pieces depicting canon elements of the series are requested (which means no OCs).
For more detailed information, check out Gray's journal about the contest here:
While you're there, be sure to check out Lazer Team and RWBY production diary 4 if you haven't already!
Suggested New RuleHello, everyone! We hope you're all excited for RWBY volume 2!Suggested New Rule3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now, we recently have been offered a new rule for submissions, particularly OC art. The idea is to submit only one picture of all the OCs at once. To explain better, some people will draw their team's silhouettes, then each member individually, then all of them together in one picture. It's not necessary to submit so much of the same exact characters in the same exact pose.
Also, it's been proposed to only accept complete work. No wips, sketches, lineart, etc. In another group I help admin, we will accept pencil sketches if they have significant detail.
Are you, the members, okay with this? Do you have any other suggestions? Please comment to tell us!

I don't know if there is a way to completly fix this bug but there definately is a way to avoid it!
I would like to thank FlumpyDuck for her very helpfull response:
"If you open a PSD in SAI for some reason it has a meltdown and won't save anything as .sai, so if - like I had - you've just done a couple hours' work and you don't want to lose everything, you /can/ save it as a .psd file and keep editing it from there. If you absolutely need it to be a .s
