Apophysis animation tutorial using apophymatorHello dellow feviants.... erm... fellow Deviants (Get out of here Jar Jar! )Apophysis animation tutorial using apophymator4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was recently asked by a fellow youtuber to make a tutorial on how to make animations in apophysis using the apophymator script. What follows is copied verbatim, typos and all, from my message to said youtuber.
< copypasta >
You first need to get the apophymator script at http://drop.io/apophymator
unzip it into your scripts directory. If you do not have one, make one.
First thing you'll need to do is to create several "key frames". These are the frames that the script will morph from one key frame to the next. When making keyframes, make sure that they all have the same number of transforms (triangles) or the script most likely will crash.
Usually when I make my videos, I start with a flame I previously made that I think will make a good animation. I work backwords for a few frames (about 4 or 5ish) to twe

The rise and fall of her chest were barely perceptible as she breathed. Her

occasional tightening on the chair was the only real sign of the emotion she was feeling.

More ways to promote your work on dA......that you might not have thought of!More ways to promote your work on dA...3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Part of the fun of creating art is sharing it with other artists and art appreciators. Whether you're seeking feedback, promoting your creations for sale (as dA prints or maybe directing people to cool stuff in your etsy shop), offering stock and resources for others to use or simply aiming to get your work 'out there' for the deviant world to enjoy, there are lots of ways to do that through deviantART.
Everyone knows about the Thumbshare Forum, Groups and Featured Deviation modules on your profile page, but there are other ways to promote your art that you may not have considered before. Here are just a few suggestions...
Thumbs in Artist's Comments
You can put thumbnails in the Artist's Comments on your deviations. This is a great way to show off connected images (like if you submit a bunch of photos from the same shoot to dA) or a collection of deviations on a theme. You might want to include mor

I had the idea for this News article when I recently went through the Tutorial list of Emotication. I normally send deviants to Emotication when they need help to create Emoticons. Now that I went through the list I noticed that many tutorials aren't helpful at all. It is "just" a list with very good but also very bad tutorials.
In the first edition of the help corner I want to share tutorials with you that I find helpful. These don't necessarily reflect my preferences in the emoticon creation process

Project Educate: Composition BasicsThe action of putting things together; formation or construction.Project Educate: Composition Basics3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The term composition simply means 'putting together' and is applied to all forms of art. In this respect, composition is all about the placement, arrangement or organisation of the individual elements within a photo. The composition of a photograph is what catches the viewer's attention and is what makes the image pleasing to the eye. By practicing and developing basic composition techniques, you can produce pieces of work which can recreate the impact of the original scene.
Some tips for developing composition skills are;
Look around using the viewfinder every time you take a picture.Look at each element and how it impacts the overall composition.Become familiar with your camera. Learn how it works, play around with settings and really get to know how each setting changes the overall image.Experiment and practice. Experiment and practice.

1. Programs of choice for emoting?
I prefer using Photoshop 7. Aside from photography, it's the only chance my PS copy gets to be used for anything. When I'm on my laptop, I use MSPaint when I'm testing emoticon ideas and faces. Sort of like sketching.

Maybe the GMs think that I actually eat puppies, so they rarely reply to my suggestions. In the beginning, I found it impossible to even get replies.
But the art was still gorgeous. And it still wasn't getting any exposure.
This is why I wrote the first Almost DD article:http://puppy-eater.deviantart.com/journal/Almost-DDs-YOU-could-get-them-there-214860058
This article spawned 3 DDs.
Since then, 2 of my DD suggestions have come through, and there's been another Almost DD to DD!
But now, I'd like to spotlight all of my DD suggestions that are either pending or have been ignored. Please show these artists some love, and if you really love a piece, suggest it as a DD!

There is a whole category filled with a lot of unique stamps. Some are animated, some are static. The original size is 99x56px, but it varies depending on the preferences of each artist. They can be round, they can be square, they can be heart-shaped or whatever else your heart desires. Except the newer modern stamps, they usually have a transparent typical stamp border, like their real life relatives which makes it easy to differentiate them from avatars or other smaller artworks.

After receiving such a positive response to my poll about a possible emoticon chat event, I decided to go ahead with the idea and with the help of BlissfullySarcastic have organised a chat event for Saturday 29th September.

"When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: 'If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right.' It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know t

It was officially announced that there will be a BRAND NEW Sailormoon Anime in Summer 2013! The original Japanese VAs for Moon and Tuxy seem to be reprising their roles (based on the conversation in the event). We don't have much more detail, a letter from Naoko said she hopes we like the new series and she's happy to be making it. She said she's overwhelmed at the support the series still has and it makes her happy. She didn't think she could do something new but now she's happy she can bring them back!
They said the audience is intended to be the original fans of the show. It will be like a "powered up" of the original story, aimed at the good girls (and boys!) who grew up with the show. TOEI is doing it.
There was something in the announcement about it being released worldwide but we don't know the details. We do not know what this means as far as a possible English dub/sub. We don't yet know when/how this will reach a US market.
