Women ArtistsThe other day, I attempted to put together a huge list of some professional and semi-pro women artists over on my tumblr, because it seems like too often women get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there who are all amazing, who offer unique points of view and design solutions, and who need more visibility and recognition. While putting this list together, I was really excited to find tons of new artists I'd never heard of before.Women Artists1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Appreciation and some advice for beginnersI have had this journal in mind for quite a long time, thinking I will find a time to write it down after I find a job (so that I can give 'advice' as a professional ). I've been less active in the past weeks since I was on a probation in a game company and I thought I would make it this time, unfortunately today I was told I have to go back to job hunting again. Anyway I'm not gonna wait any longer since some of my fellow deviants have been asking for advice for a long time.Appreciation and some advice for beginners1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Before I start – my apologies if some points in this journal are not clear because of language, I am not a native English speaker.
I'm not giving these advice as a professional or an elite artist (I hope I was!), just sharing my learning experience and some personal understanding of conceptual design and arts. Please ignore or correct me if I got things wrong.
Ok. Some related information about myself – I studied computing at university, in my final year I found myself really lack of interests in programming or

Yes, I'm alive. I'm sneezing a lot (hay fever - bah!), but all in all I'm well. I've been working on that background tutorial (it'll take a while longer before it's finished; some stuff is so hard to put into words ) and I've also been working on a secret project that I have been planning for a while now, but that also takes quite some time, so it's not gonna be ready tomorrow either. Plus I've been working on a new journal skin for myself that I do plan to share when it's finished (probably just with different images). Everything is coming along, but as I said, nothing is close to finishing. I haven't made a manip in a while either, so I guess that will be taken care of first Got some stock to upload, too... why again does a day only have 24 hours?!

and first I'll tell because I started getting interested in this subject. three things happened that made me pay attention in this detail.
1 - a long time ago, I used the stock from pixabay in some premades. and unfortunately I did not know that this site is not reliable, so I was denounced and I had all my contents posted in stock removed.
2 - I used a premade, but the person who did this premade used a stock that was not allowed to be used, and this premade was denounced and people who used also have been denounced and had my manipulation was moved to scrap for infringed copyright.
3 - I used a PNG, and after

Top 12 Favorite Plot TypesA while ago I wrote a list of my top 11 most hated cliches. I tried to come up with an alternative. My top 11 favorite cliches, but I couldn't think of enough so I decided to do something different but similar. Have you ever had one of those plot types that you could manage to enjoy no matter how cliche and sterile they are? Those plots that have a large chance at being your guilty pleasures at worst? So, if you do know any episodes (or hell movies) that use these plots, I'd love to hear them; they don't even need to be animated. Although, each of these can and have been done badly before.Top 12 Favorite Plot Types2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Number 12: Genie Plot
One that doesn't have the third wish be "I wish I'd never met you" (with a few exceptions, like one of the Fairly OddParents TV movies, the one with Norm), which is odd because this doesn't really apply to shows like Fairly Odd Parents where reality is bended at will. The basic gist of this plot is that a normal character suddenly gets the ability to get whatever they wan
Manip Academy 6 : How to adjust a fire's colorThis trick will help you blend a fire stock to fit the colors and the atmosphere of your photomanipulation.Manip Academy 6 : How to adjust a fire's color4 months ago in Personal More Like This
To do so, we are going to use Alpha Channels and Adjustment Layers.
To understand this tip you should already know how to create layers and how to use masks.
The first step will be to remove the black background that comes with most fire stocks you will find.
Some of you may already know you can apply blending modes to your layer to make that black background disappear.
It's the easiest and fastest way to blend a fire... but with this technique, you won't be able to modify your fire's aspect (or your background will re-appear) ! So your result won't always look very realistic.
That's why I'll tell you how to cut (softly) that black background, using the Alpha Channels :
First, display your fire stock layer only (so the rest of your image won't bother you) and search for your "Channels" window (in Photoshop CS6, there is a "Channel" tab right next to your "Layers" tab).

Show some love for these beautiful creatures and adopt a black cat - thanks to stupid supertitions (=stupidity of people), they're people's last choice when adopting.
This is a selection from my Favourites folder - I didn't realise I've selected so many cats, especially my favourite ones - the black cats.

Create your own Photo Manipulation resources #1Hello all, and happy belated 2014!Create your own Photo Manipulation resources #11 year ago in Personal More Like This
It seems that I have not been very active around here at least referring to posting journals lately, but it's been for a good reason of a work and creativity overload, plus journals here seem to go a bit of invisible about dA lately as I see...
So, I had a great photo shoot last month in the forests of La Granja (Segovia / Spain), and I arranged an article explained a bit how to do an outdoors photo shoot in a lush forest with your models, and having even them to pose for you at under 0 celsius degrees. I think it might be instructive for those who are playing with photo manipulation and digital art and want to create their own resources to avoid licenses and such when using stock. I'm planning to create a series of this kind of articles, hoping that the may be useful for some of you! More to come, then!
I hope you're all doing well, I'm often around here even if I don't post that much

so this year, on san diego comic con i met a guy that just in one simple swoop destroyed my patience for excuses.

you go here, you see this video... and you ask yourselves, do you want it hard enough.
this man is a storyteller at heart. his cmic is an intense one, really cool and i recommend it it is available for preorder, a voice in the dark. it is out in november. i don't usually promote stuf, rarely even my own, but i want to promote this because this man deserves it!
so stop looking for excuses, stop trying to find reasons why it cant be done, start working on ways to get it done.

So Close Yet So farSo Close Yet So far4 months ago in Personal More Like This
An ended project called "so close yet so far" which was all about our daily routine lives and how we communicate with people in every possible way, our feelings towards each other from miles away and how we actually handle the situation when we see someone doesn't matter if she/he is a family member, wife, husband, friend or a complete stranger, through a webcam or a photo shared on Facebook. It was all about capturing the moment and sharing it. From the moment that this idea got born many have shared not only their presence they actually shared their lives with me and at the same time many misunderstood the reason of this call for their participation. Many talked about their routine lives, wishes, dreams...and some about their deepest secrets that even the closest people to them are not aware of...so far we are from each other, even when we are with someone, and so close is that distance when a heart is open.A project that was not about
