Know your Basics - Composition (the manip way)The Rule of Thirds is another one of those expressions that you have probably heard before somewhere but aren't quite sure what it means. This article strives to shed some light on this rule as well as on how to use lines and shapes in your compositions to lead the viewer's eye to the important bits. There are some compositional rules and pointers that no artist should go without knowing!Know your Basics - Composition (the manip way)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Technical Part
Rule of Thirds
Thankfully this time, there are no hours upon hours of dry reading to be done because the Rule of Thirds itself can be explained rather easily:
"The Rule of Thirds states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections." (from the wikipedia article)
Or - summed up in one image:

Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)Most of us have heard about Colour Theory - be it in school or on dA or as a term thrown about by someone somewhere. But what exactly is it? And how do you use it? This is what this article is striving to explain especially in regards to photomanipulation.Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Technical Part
Thankfully, there's tons of reading material about colour theory. Starting with the wikipedia article on the subject (which seems rather dry and boring to be honest) and ranging to tutorials written by deviants for their fellow artists. Those are the ones I'd like to recommend to you to get started in colour theory:
Still too dry and technical?
Okay, let me put it this way: the use of colours in your artwork can determine its mood and atmosphere. If you do it well, it can draw in the viewer and make them see what you want them to see by putting emphasis on certain parts. Colour theory gives you a way to know in

Fantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 27I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsFantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 272 years ago in Art Features More Like This
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

ARTIST'S BLOCK - HOW TO BEAT ITHow do you deal with "Artist's Block?"ARTIST'S BLOCK - HOW TO BEAT IT2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't care who you are, or how well you draw, one of these days, the Art Block Fairy is going to pay you a little visit. When that day comes, ideas will be scarcer than possums driving pickup trucks. Despite the randomness of that metaphor, how you handle artist's block will decide when you'll get those creative juices flowing again. Some of you will decide to pause and have a snack. I can tell you from experience that this doesn't do much to kick-start the imagination. When that doesn't work, there's always the option of getting a second snack. But eventually, you'll get too frustrated and too full to keep doing that. There's got to be another solution. So you decide to follow the prevailing wisdom, which is to go for a walk to refresh yourself, in the hopes that inspiration might return. The walk is pleasant, but almost mythical in its fecklessness. If walks worked, the beach would be teaming with cartoonists and write

First english photoshop tutorialHeyFirst english photoshop tutorial3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here is my first english photoshop tutorial which I've produced it for you!
The first tutorial is about how to create a brush with photoshop and a picture from my stock archive.
May you know all my brushes which I've have created like the moon brush, the leaves, or the lightnings.
With this tutorial you'll be able to create your own brushes like I did.
In this tutorial I used the Photoshop CS6 Version and like I mentioned one of my cloud stock images.
Feel free to write a comment, thumbs up the vidoe or make a wish for the next photoshop tutorial.
Aaaaaaaaand yes, I will publish the cloud brush here on my stock account.

Here's a free brush set that contains basic rendering brushes, as well as custom brushes I've made. You may use them in any of your personal and professional work, and of course I highly encourage you to make your own as well
Made in Photoshop CS3, they should work in previous versions and of course will work in CS5 & CS6.
Thanks and enjoy!
