Download my brushset and learn brush groupingHey everyone, I just put up a new video showing a simple, yet super handy way to categorize and group your brushes in Photoshop. It's especially useful if you have a really big set like me, it makes it really easy to find what you need so you don't have to hunt around constantly. I've also provided a download link to my current set of brushes with the video.Download my brushset and learn brush grouping7 months ago in Personal More Like This

PE: Wire-WrappingThis article is a short introduction to wire-wrapping, including information about wire-wrapping terms and tools, methods, tutorials and a feature of beautiful jewellery.PE: Wire-Wrapping5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
What is wire-wrapping?
"wire-wrapping" is - like the name implies - a technique where wire is wrapped in whatever way. It can be used to hold gemstones in place, and create intricate jewellery. It has the big plus that soldering isn't neccessary, and therefore all the equipment needed is relatively easy to come by.
Terms and Tools
Wire comes in different different sizes and forms, and you can choose between materials as well - you can use brass, copper, silver and gold wire.
Wire diameter is measured in 'gauge' and ranges from 14 gauge (~1/16 inch) to 26+ gauge (1/64 inch), so the higher the gauge number, the thinner the wire.
Stockers you should knowHey people! So, one of the many questions I get asked about how to improve figure drawing is where to find a suitable model. In a perfect world, friends and family members would sit for us artists for hours on end, however that's highly unlikely especially if you're looking for an "actiony" pose! Also, those of you who are just beginning to draw the figure need to do so from a human model. Drawing from life is, once again, ideal, but stock photos are the next best thing. Plus I'm always harping about dA's great stock so this is the list of some of the absolute best figurative/pose based human stockers on dA:Stockers you should know1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

Community Week - Creating Great PasswordsCreating Secure but Easy to Remember Passwords!Community Week - Creating Great Passwords5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
We use passwords to access a lot of different accounts from a lot of different gadgets. Passwords are meant to keep our information safe from unauthorized eyes. This is why we try to create passwords that cannot be easily figured out by other people even when they use hacking software. However, we must also make sure that our passwords only keep away other people, not ourselves as well - not being able to access your own account could be very frustrating.
Here are some tips that we can use when we think of passwords for all of our accounts.

A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and ArtWith movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and Art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend

Congratulations!! We are now announcing the winners of this contest!
Review from the judge:
Oh my world, look at the details! This is clearly well planned through and I can see all the effort put into the lines and wonderful coloring.
I must say, the details are the first very impressive feature about this.
There are so many awesome patterns and accessories, yet it isn't too overwhelming - it is just the perfect ammount.
I also really liked the beautiful weapon that comes with the adoptable.
The placing of the colors is wonderful, they all fit nicely and make it look like a complete, well thought design.
Other than that, I really like her pose, it is well balanced and eye-catching, as well as the close-ups from the details, which I think is a very nice and helpful add to the whole package.

The Art and Architecture of Ancient PompeiiThe Art and Architecture of Ancient Pompeii6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Pompeii, located near the Apennine Mountains and modern-day Naples, Italy, was a thriving Roman city when it was buried in ash in 79 AD by the eruption of nearby volcano Mount Vesuvius. It had been settled agriculturally as early as the Iron Age in the 8th century BC, but humans didn't start making actual structures there until the Samnites built city walls in the 6th century BC. They became allies of Rome in 338 BC, and after a few wars, officially became part of the Roman Empire in 89 BC. From then until the eruption of Vesuvius, Pompeii was a thriving and relatively peaceful city (“Visiting Pompeii”).
Society in ancient Pompeii was much like that of ancient Rome. They had an amphitheater that predated Rome’s Coliseum but was very similar in that it housed sporting events that could last days and draw citizens not just from the city, but from many

Is Reference Bad?I feel like I've addressed this before at some point, in some other journal, but I find myself either discussing this with people a lot, or coming across people who on their work proudly claim to have "used no reference."Is Reference Bad?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The biggest problem, and misconception, regarding references is that people feel like it's cheating or that it somehow cheapens their work. While I can understand the sense of accomplishment coming from using no reference to finish a painting or drawing, people who consistently do it are only hurting themselves in the long run. So in short, no, reference isn't bad.
Artists have been using reference since the days of the old masters. They would reference life, whether it be landscapes, objects on a table, or models standing in a studio. They would even reference their own sketches or other people's work in order create convincing paintings.
For some reason, a lot of people today seem to think that in order to be a good artist, they have to be able to do things without
Polymer Clay Brands Polymer clay BrandsPolymer Clay Brands5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
many people who start working with polymer clay usually do so by taking the brand they have available in a store around the corner.
For me that was Fimo, which is still a regular in my polymer clay box. I have tried several brands, though not all, thats why I borrow (with permission!) from other nice people which are credited in the bottom and in the intro, to give you a full picture. All the product pictures are copyright of the respective brands which I have written permission to use. (And got free samples from Fimo & Pardo just for asking! Thanks so much once more)
Did anyone of you know that Fimos goes back a long time and is probably the first polymer clay? It was originally invented by the famous doll maker Käthe Kruse. When in 1939 the mass didn't turn out to be used the way for doll heads as she wanted, her daughter Sophie dabbled on with it. It took another 15 years until she did perfectione

Unrestricted Use DirectoryEDITUnrestricted Use Directory1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Just an update. I may have doubled some up but its near midnight here so Ill sort any doubles tomorrow!
Many years ago, the amazing LawrenceDeDark created the original Unrestricted Stock Directory. A place for artists to come and find a list of stock providers who offer their resources as unrestricted. This is an update on an old list (2009, eep!) <3
Unrestricted stock can be used for both personal and commercial projects, but it cannot be redistributed as stock. You are not required to obtain permission prior to using the stock off site or in DA prints. The only requirements are that the stock provider be notified and credited.
1. You have to give credit.
2. You have to let the provider know.
3. You can not redistribute as a resource
Thats it, Thats as easy as Unrestricted Stock gets.
To be added to the list please NOTE me with either
Unrestricted stock account or unrestricted stock folder as the title please. This makes it easier for me.
