PE: How to Make Pixel CloudsHow to Make Pixel CloudsPE: How to Make Pixel Clouds1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to make pixel clouds. I have two different types of clouds I use depending on the piece; semi-realistic, and cartoon style. I will be showing you both today!
Let us start!
The semi realistic style can be done two ways, depending on if you are limiting colors or not.
First, I'm going to show you the way for if you do not care how many colors you use.
First you will pull out your pencil brush, as you would normally do when making pixel art, and set the color to white. After that, set the opacity to around 10%-20%.
Randomly brush side to side with the pencil, and then overlap some lines randomly as well.
Keep doing that until the cloud if about as big as you need it; it should look something like this.c:

There are a plethora of brushes available to you on photoshop. This guide will explain different brush settings, as well as how to install different brush packs here on deviantART. This guide is for pressure sensitive pen tablets. It is going to be much easier to do things with a tablet. Ones by Wacom are good, and you can get a bamboo for under 99$ USD.
Basic Brushes in Photoshop
It's important to stick with default ones to learn all the settings. You can do so many things with the hard round brush.
Bring up your brush palette in one of the following ways. (note I am in CS3, so the icons will look much older, but same thing. )

Syn's Dithering TutorialWhat is dithering?Syn's Dithering Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Dithering is a pixel art process used to blend blocks of colour together or help apply a texture to a pixelled surface. Within emoticons it is most commonly used when making pixelled backgrounds, however it can be used in a number of other areas, e.g. massive emote bases, pixel objects etc. In this tutorial, we will focus on how 2 colours can be blended with dithering.
To break dithering down into simple terms, it is achieved by simply taking the colours from the two blocks of colour and placing individual pixels of each on the opposite side. This creates a region where the two colours merge together to create a more blended colour transition instead of a clear line between the two.
Dithering can seem like a complex process, but it's really not. Once you get the basic idea and technique, it's just all about practice and over time you'll learn how to apply it to a number of different situations. There are many dithering styles which can be

I actually don't know how to export one brush, so it's a set (All are good, I swear) But it's at the very bottom. There are two called "175" It's the first one.
For Texture: If you go under brush presets and check "Texture" Then in the preview box choose the last preset. Set the mode to "overlay" and if your image is 300 dpi and over 10" you might want t increase the scale.
I'll add screenshots for anyone who needs them.

PE: How to Fix Animation 'Trailing' in GimpHow to Fix Animation "Trailing" in GimpPE: How to Fix Animation 'Trailing' in Gimp3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So, you just made an animation in gimp on a transparent background. You go to save it, check the animation for last minute fixes, and BAM! The animation looks like this!
You are probably wondering, "What did I do wrong?" or how do I fix this?". Well if this has ever happened to you and you're still wondering how to fix it, than please read the rest of this tutorial.
Note that this tutorial is only guaranteed to work in Gimp (You can get a free copy at gimp.org). This method may work in other programs, but Gimp is the only program I have that officially supports animation.
So after you have made your animation, just save it like you would normally. If you normally just press the save button, make sure to press "Save As" instead.
If you use gimp 2.8. or newer, press "Export" instead of "Save as".

How to fix no pressure sensitivity On SAIPlease follow the steps and all of them please. ( follow me on my other account :iconyuir0How to fix no pressure sensitivity On SAI2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have a theory on why pressure goes off on sai. It's because people leave sai without returning smoothing or stabilizer 0 . In Some cases people put their min size on brushes to 100 %.
Now because of your bad habits you have to follow these steps for sai to return to normal.
Step one- Open sai tool paint. ( if you don't have it open)
Step two- Go through all the brushes and put min size to 0 on all brushes.
step three- Click Other (o)>Option (o)
step four- On digitizer click option mouse instead of pen. (do with no question)than okay
Step five- Put smoothing/stabilizer to 0
Step six- exit out of sai and close all programs.
Step seven- Restart your computer
Step eight - Do step three again when you have sai open. ( go to options)
step nine- On Digitizer click pen option and than okay.
step ten- put smoothing/stabilizer to s-7 to see if this

I absolutely love, especially, the sweater that you designed. I think that it is so absolutely adorable, and I seriously have a thing for sweaters. I had my cousin help me judge, and she really liked yours, which was tied with 2 others.

Again, i really loved how you drew the sweater. I think that's what wooed me in the first place. Your piece was tied with 3 others but yours, out of the 4, had the most original design. The colors fitted really nicely, and I really love how you worked out your markers in general. Congrats! ^_^

It's technically the same as Dropbox, but offers much more space at an initial 15gb of cloud space FREE.
So click this https://copy.com?r=veqtNG and it'll take you through my referral to the page.
Why through my referral?
Because when you sign up you get 15GB cloud space free.
But through a referrer's link, once you verify your email and then download & install either the Copy app or program, like dropbox, we both get additional 5GB on top of that.
Now, that's fun and most important more space for free!
Then after that you can introduce it to all your friends for similar results and you can rack up tons of 5GB per referral.
In case you missed the link, click this https://copy.com?r=veqtNG
Just to push up and let more people know about this!
By the way, I have quite a number of users who registered BUT have not install the app/program on their phone or computer, that means it's not a full process, and you won't get t

I could probably talk your ear off for a mile and a half about why I should be the last person you ask for creativity-boosting advice. Aaaand I have my reasons for this, but that's not really what anyone who writes me wants to hear, I think. It's just a fair warning. I'm not an accredited teacher, I was far from the most capable person at my college, I've made a metric crapton of mistakes, and I am nowhere near where I'd like to be in my own personal artistic endeavors. If that doesn't bother you, well, keep on reading!
