Turning Day into NightHello everyone and welcome back to another Manip Academy tutorial!Turning Day into Night10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to take an image that was shot during the day, and make it look like it was shot at night. There are a couple ways of that you can achieve this look, but I will just be showing you one way that I most commonly use. We will be using various adjustment layers and blending techniques during this process. Now remind you, every piece will turn out differently, what I am showing you is just a starting point for your image. So keep playing around with the adjustment layers to achieve the effect that your looking for. Let's start out with the stock image:
My Barn Is My Kastl by Burtn
First thing you want to do is make sure to duplicate the layer. I always duplicate whatever images I work with and create a folder called "Original Stocks

[Featured Skin] Rainsweeper[Featured Skin] Rainsweeper3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rainsweeper by Kaelri is another leap in making Rainmeter do things that no one ever thought possible. Through the use of a clever Lua script Rainsweeper is a clone of the classic Minesweeper game. The ingenious design allows for many features including a GUI options editor, saved high scores, and it has no images or other resource files making it light as it can be.
Thanks for the hard work on another amazing skin!

Stop SOPA Blackout JournalDo you care about your rights?Stop SOPA Blackout Journal3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I care about your rights. SOPA is an infringement upon our rights. Do you want the government controlling which websites it approves the use of? Our freedoms for thought and free speech need to be protected for free internet. In protest, blackout your pages, go silent, spread the word. Petition sites you care about to do the same.
Who does SOPA effect?
Everyone who uses the internet. Facebook, Twitter, social networking sites which cannot control the content posted by it's users and will be held responsible for it. This is forced censorship. This will not stop piracy. This will effect law abiding citizens. It does not protect our rights, it treads on it, spits on it, and throws our rights out the window at 100mph.
Photography Troubleshooting: How to work with MistGetting the camera out, and the scarf, hat and gloves, and heading into a misty morning or hazy evening can result in the best kind of photographs. Atmospheric, moody and ultimately a fine example of whatever current season you're in - these kinds of shots present themselves at awkward moments so it's vitally important to be prepared. In previous years I've got up at the crack of dawn and ventured out with all the excitement of a young child on their first day of school - only to come home with a grazed knee and broken felt tip pens. Or rather, washed out, blurred and altogether rubbish photographs.Photography Troubleshooting: How to work with Mist3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Fog is a popular mist - we often get confused and just term it all as fog or all as mist. It's not quite like that. It's all about the visibility, if we can see less than 1km through it then it's fog. If we can see between 1 - 2 km then it's mist. So when is the best time to catch these ground level clouds at their best? Fo
New deviantART ThumbnailsHey folks!New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may remember a while back we showed off some brand new thumbnails in #hq's Journal. Well, after many weeks of porting and tweaking based on community feedback, we finally got these brand new thumbs ready for beta testing!
The new thumbnails
UPDATE (May 19, 2012): Based on feedback received, we've updated the new thumbnails to be justified. Thumbnails are now spaced out across the rows, making them flush against the left and right sides of the page. When a browser's window is too small, justification cannot happen without leaving larger awkward spaces. In these cases, justification is turned off and thumbnails become left aligned. We think these changes present the most appealing interface for both cases.
For those of you who didn't see the new thumbs when they were previewed a month back, here's a re
Harmonia Pastelis 2 Icon set - Request Time!UPDATE: 1 Jan 2014. Yes, you still can request! :>Harmonia Pastelis 2 Icon set - Request Time!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm now working on my latest icon set, after a long months without iconwork.
It will be called Harmonia Pastelis 2 As the name implied, it will be the spiritual successor (well, nothing spritual here, actually) of my old icon set Harmonia Pastelis → http://raindropmemory.deviantart.com/art/Harmonia-Pastelis-Icon-Set-117562336 , one of my icon set that many people happened to like!
Below is the glance of some finished icons.
P.S. with my custom visual style (aka 'theme') for Windows 8 that I'm also working on - still in its baby stage though.
The old icon was created in 2009, when my style and skill is still simple. Many years have past and many things changed, my experiences, my skill and styl
Stratiform 4.0 Alpha 1SURPRIIIISE!Stratiform 4.0 Alpha 11 year ago in Personal More Like This
SoapyHamHocks and I started working on Stratiform 4.0 a fair while back but we hit many setbacks including time availability and personal stuff. That plus this is essentially a complete rewrite of Stratiform in every sense.
Check out the screenshots to get a feel for the new UI and options. This new version works quite a bit differently to what you've used in the past but it is much more flexible and just a better platform for us to develop from. It's safe to say there's nothing out there quite like this add-on right now.

All kids that want to draw in a particular style that they find appealing.
It's a thing most people grow out of, as they A) learn that it does nothing to improve your own skills and B) you can't actually do anything with the "art" because it's still someone else's work.
I say most people.
:iconbatmanopolis: seems content to play photocopier AND is oblivious to copyright law, in that he's attempting to sell images that are clearly traces of VERY well-known artists.
I doubt he's the only one on DA doing this, and I have a special hatred for such vermin, so if you're aware of anyone else that is both copying other people's work AND trying to sell prints of the results without authorisation from the original artist - reply here with a link.

So I think it's about time I made this post.
A lot of you have asked this question: Can I draw you?
And to that I say YESSSS (as long as it's not vulgar or porn)
You are allowed to:
draw, paint, sketch or use my poses as inspiration no problem,
But please let me know when you do and please credit me as the model (link to my DA page would be nice!)
You are not allowed to do (WHATSOEVER):
any photo manipulation, retouching or use my image on a product (specially if you benefit money-wise from it)
All drawings of me will go into my favorites and from time to time I will be featuring the art in my journals
To all those who have already drawn me, thank you very much
Makes me smile everytime and I'm always impressed by your work and honored to have inspired you.
Here are the art works of me that I have found so far!
If I missed any of you let me know!

Original Life UncensoredI'm keeping the main comic feed for Original Life PG-13 by adding mosaic censoring to the open nudity. It's hard to cover a clothing optional community without doing that. I thought of trying to cleverly hide everything with sprigs of foliage and wisps of hair, but felt I should just go natural with it. I want people to be able to read the stories as they please, anywhere they like, without worry, which is why I'm keeping the main comic site censored.Original Life Uncensored3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can find the uncensored comics on my Tumblr account ( http://jayrnaylor.tumblr.com/ ). I'll try to post them up the mornings they update on the main site, when I wake up. They're not really sexual or crazy or anything, really, but I thought I'd give the option to people who like to save the files.
Design ContestPushing the previous journal aside with something more interesting.Design Contest1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have a project in the making (which I can't mention yet), but I find myself in a bit of trouble designing one of the main characters, so why not hold a contest?
There will only be one winner, and the prize would be a drawing from me.
There are some do's and don'ts here, so make sure to read it.
The character must...
- be a female
- be a canine, preferably a dog
- if dog, purebreed
- look attractive (necessary for the role)
- have a realistic design, in terms of colors and markings
- have long hair
- have feminine looks
- be aged around 25-30
- be a molosser type of dog. (Mastiff, bulldogs or other dogs with hanging skin or wrinkles and otherwise masculine looks)
- be completely black furred or white furred (preference)
- be a German Shepherd, wolf or maned wolf
- be masculine or tomboy-ish
(That's all I can think of at the moment. Might add more later so keep an eye out.)
