Photograph or Pencil Drawing - you decide...First of all I do not claim to be a 'hyper-realism' artist, I am someone who just enjoys drawing, and if what I draw looks a little like the reference I am using then great - I do not draw a pixel at a time, I make long sweeping pencil strokes, layer over lighter work, erase like crazy and basically have fun. In most cases you can still see pencil strokes, un-blended areas of graphite, and lots of mistakes - but to me that what drawing is all aboutPhotograph or Pencil Drawing - you decide...1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
One of the ways I try to improve my work is to compare what I have drawn with the reference image I used to create it, it can be a fun way of seeing just how close - or how far away from the original you have got - I thought I would share a couple of examples with you.
I find placing the drawn picture next to the photograph, cropping them the same and adjusting the tone, contrast and exposure you can see just how close you can get to the original.
Most people think that all pen

First of all, I wanted to remember you that I selected the winning works for the representation of a CONTRAST between a character and his environment, not for your skills to draw or photomanipulate. So, please, don't feel offended if your beautiful work hadn't be choosen . I tried to select the more creative works in my mind.
I would also tell you that I'm really happy with all these beautiful creations you did ! Many thanks for your participations, I hope you'll try to participate to the next contest .

My name is Windy. I'm currently 20 years old (but I will be 21 by the time this interview is released). I will also have my associates degree in Liberal Arts. For as long as I can remember, I have always been into creative things. When I was little, I could spend hours drawing or filling up my coloring books with various hues. But it wasn't until middle school when I realized how much I love poetry. It was just a whole new world for me. I liked the way that I could play with words, and use them to express my thoughts or feelings. Furthermore, I enjoyed telling stories throu

So that's the premise. In our world, we have at least 5 spiritual cosmos: the superior world, the colonies, Earth, the umbraline zone and the inferior world. Mathew (beta name) is our protagonist: he's a sassy 16 old brat that will learn about ethics, values and true meaning of partnership with his fellow demon protected ones: Devon Rex (the son of Cerberus), Porsha (an incubus), Ghede (also known as Baron Samedi), Vyr (a vampire) and even Satan itself. His most reliable ally is the Anti-Christ, the son of Lucifer, and his personal assistants, who'll help him and his other demons accomplishing their missions or even struggling to survive.
Mathew and his humans friends study on a very wealthy school. What I need you guys to do is desig
A Link to the Past 3DS Sequel Announced!Edit: A lot of you are being rather rude and hurtful by an honest mistake. I've heard two sides of the story, BOTH from Nintendo. One saying it's a sequel and another saying it's a remake. I was confused, I am still confused. REGARDLESS, we're getting a really nice game. So please stop being rude/hurtful to an honest mistake.

That's right! Nintendo announced the sequel to the SNES masterpiece, A Link to the Past!
It's coming out for the 3DS around the holiday's and it looks amazing! I'm glad they're sticking to the top-down view yet giving it a bit more of an edge. I'm looking forward to this game very much~!

The Essence of "Street"PART VThe Essence of "Street"3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The series of 5 articles about Street Photography made by myraincheck and slightly edited by moi* ends with:
WHAT IS STREET PHOTOGRAPHY?
Trying to define a genre of photography like Street, it implies the consciousness that one definition will never be enough, or exhaustive, or able to cover the molteplicity of its possibilities and situations. Nevertheless let's try to comprehend the philosophy behind the passion for street photography.
Let's start stating that a street photo is not a photography of streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street. So what does 'street' mean? Street is whatever background or surrounding, not staged, not posed by the photgrapher. And street is whatever photography which captures, explores humanity, the human behaviour, the relationships between individuals and between individuals and their surroundings.
"The essence of street photography is the impulse to take candid pictures in the
