Macro-PhotographyWhat's Macro Photography? Technically a Macro photograph shows a subject that is life size compared to the size of the negative of a SLR or sensor in a Full Frame DSLR, that's a 1:1 reproduction ratio aspect. For example, if we take a macro of an object wich is 35 mm long, it will cover the whole frame, no matter what size the reproduction, if we are shooting with a Full Frame camera. Often a ratio aspect of 1:2 is also considered Macro, although that ratio shows subjects wich life size is half of the size compared to the negative or sensor, I preffer to call those pictures Close-up photograpies.Macro-Photography1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Here is an example of what I'm saying: I shot a measuring tape with my D600, wich is a full frame camera, and my macro lens set at the maximun magnification. As you can see there's exactly 35 mm of the tape.
Example of 1:1 ratio aspect with a full frame camera

Using Natural Lighting and Outdoor Environments in Still Life
Many wonderful still life photographers use indoor setups and lighting for their photography. But, since I started out as a nature photographer, I like to utilize natural light and shoot my still life photos outdoors. However, taming the outdoor world can be a little tricky, so I wanted to write an article discussing several tips for improving outdoor still life shots and explaining how I shot several of my own still life photographs.
Here are several tips...
1.) Try different angles. Outdoor lighting environments can look widely different depending on the angle, since the angle you shoot at can change lighting, general perspective of the subject, and what is in your background. So for each shot I take, I always try several different angles. I also try re-positioning my subject a few times and even moving to a different outdoor area.

Big, marvellous, elaborate, finished paintings and drawings you can see in various stunning galleries on dA and outside dA, while they require time and can occupy artist's workspace even for months, in a lot of cases make a small percentage of created pictures lying around the creator's desk. Sketches aren't just noted concepts or a stage in preparing an artwork - a couple of sketches a day can be the most influential source of improving your skills.
You have probably been through this more than once - far from your room, you got struck with a brilliant idea. In diffrent circumstances you'd most likely rush to transfer it onto paper or canvas, but well, that might be not so easy in a classroom or on a bus. It can be difficult even if you're home - how about more than one idea at once? Using a sketchbook as a notepad for any concepts is by far
The Artist's Toolbox - Working with ReferencesThe Artist's Toolbox - Working with ReferencesThe Artist's Toolbox - Working with References2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I can draw anything... as long as I get to look at it.
There is a great myth that drawing is a memory exercise. That if you can draw entirely from memory it makes you a better artist who deserves more kudos.
Of course the study of drawing will lead to a good memory of the things you've already studied how to draw, humans, animals, whatever it is that you love to draw. But the downfall of this is that you can restrict yourself to only drawing what it is you have studied how to draw, ie what you've memorised.
Using reference is not a weakness! It is a strength and almost all top level artists use a lot of reference. Using reference means you're not trapped one person's life experiences and can draw upon a wealth of extra knowledge. How can that be a weakness?
A lot of people seem to assume that the reference should come first. They go out and they scour the dA stock etc to find th

Hello all deviants!!!
Some of you already know this guy, some no. But anyway let me introduce you to LUCIFER. He's me oficial character and most memorable and loved creature I've ever draw.
If you don't know he's not a cat, but halfblood, the son of the dark spirit and werecat.
Halfbloods like him can do interesting thing - they can turn into almost all vreatures you can ever imagine ( from small insects to enormous dragons).
But lucifer prefer his cat form most of all thats why many people saw him in this form before:
He rarely turnes into a dog form also. But he has many other forms (including human one).
So this will be your goal in this contest:
TO DRAW LUCIFER IN ANY OTHER ANIMAL, HUMAN OR CREATURE FORM.( NO CAT OR DOG FORMS)
JUST FOLLOW THIS RULES:

Both custom designs (I need some new oc's ) and drawing designs are fine! I do prefer if they are not icons or pixels thougth!
And if I get a comission from you, you can choose from any of these guys~ I don't mind you can also use any expression you want! Feel free to draw them in any way you feel like I don't mind! Blood is always welcome as well as flowers, see what I'm saying?

Hello everyone!! It's been a while since I last held a stock challenge for stock artists but in the spirit of the new year here you go.
What if a mirror isn't all it seems. What if your reflection wants to keep you on your side? What if you are able to climb through a mirror but your reflection keeps standing in front of you, blocking your way? You try to touch the mirror without your reflection touching the same place. Maybe the cold surface isn't the mirror you're touching, but the cold flesh of your doppelganger, pushing back, keeping you on your side.
The theme is 'Through the Mirror'
