Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 9 Ive been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artists works that I have come across. It started off as stock I cant 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.Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 94 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Cinder is coming to Doctor Who: Legacy!So it was announced today that the War Doctor's companion Cinder (from George Mann's novel "Engines of War") is being added to the Doctor Who: Legacy game, and yes- she will be in the same style as the design I cooked up a while back with George's input:Cinder is coming to Doctor Who: Legacy!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Obviously, we have to make a few alterations since the original was based on Hayley Williams (we never dreamed that this design would get fast-tracked for officialdom). But I can promise that "Cinder 2.0" will still be mostly the same and just as badass (and most importantly, still have a gun made out of dead Dalek parts). The legacy folks have been very cool to work with, and I'm hoping we'll be working together on some more stuff soon.
Also- you gotta see this wicked Cinder fan art by Paul Cooke. Beautiful stuff:
Photography Troubleshooting: Snap to ProThis week we bring you another issue of Troubleshooting for Photographers, to hopefully give you some tips and explanations behind how to make your Photography look that little bit more professional. Aeirmid noted that while there are a lot of folks in the photomanipulation community who enjoy taking photographs, there is also a great desire for people to learn a bit more about how to make them look more professional.Photography Troubleshooting: Snap to Pro3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Firstly combining the elements of many of the articles that have already been written in this series (see the bottom of this article for links) will assist anybody in gearing their photographs up to look more professional. However IsacGoulart summed it up quite neatly with this rather epic quote...
“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph."
Getting your work up to some sort of standard is always tricky. Especially if you are setting the standar
Die Ghul Show with ALIZADEH-ART!:icondasghul:: Welcome to my humble show, :iconalizadeh-art:!Die Ghul Show with ALIZADEH-ART!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Do you enjoy being here?
:iconalizadeh-art:: i m realy happy and feel well in the ghoulish area,,i love attention,which artist dont like to feed his ego?
:icondasghul:: Oh, but actually there are some! Some artists actually seem to believe that feeding one's ego doesn't even match with art at all…
Your opinion on this?
:iconalizadeh-art:: liars,,i think every artist need an constructive opinion on his works so he/she can improve more and more,,a soft healthy massage for our ego is like a balsam for our soul,,if i just paint in my room the next 20years and doesnt show it to the world i cant improve,,hard work shoud be appreciated and i think ego is realy important as long as the artist doesnt go overrated and walking around with nose up into the sky.
:icondasghul:: So, where exactly is the thin line between being an artist and just walking around with your nose up into the sky actually situated, in your opinion?

Critiquing, do's and dont'sSo i almost always request critiques on my art, and i also get a lot of them too (thank you so much guys/galls) and i've noticed some critiquers have some misconceptions about critiques, their role, how to do it, etc.Critiquing, do's and dont's1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Now i don't want to critique someone's critiuque, i rarely do that because people take it as being defensive about the art that is critiqued. So i'll just make this journal to hopefully inform/educate some of you about critiquing.
-If an artist requests critiques, and you have something to say about it then do use the critique widget to leave a critique. Don't critique in the comment's section though. I know some of you are more shy, but if you're bold enough to write a critique then put it in its proper place, that's what the widget is fore. This does not apply to artists who do not have a premium and can't requests critiques through the widget.
-Do read the artists comments on the artwork first. They might offer hints on what
What do do as an artist in training.There are many ways to Rome they say. But I find most aspiring artists lost and asking me for guidanceWhat do do as an artist in training.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
and this is what I tell them.
Find out for yourself what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions.
Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of bookcovers, or card games.
Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must find the best work on the market in those fields.
Find out what makes the best art of your favorite field the best art. What do they paint? How do they paint it? With knowing this you can find out about the things you need to study.
The most basic study aims are the following:
What forms of light art there? And how does it influence things?
The book Color and Light by James Gurney will give you a lot of insight.
How do you paint shapes? How do you light them the right way?

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.

People and Portraits Exposed #3This week we're focusing on Spontaneous Portraits. The definition behind such portraiture is quite simple. It involves shots that are captured on the spur of the moment. They're not planned, they aren't set up, there could be things obscuring the models face, and there's often no time for makeup and lighting! But it's not simply the back of someone's head, or a funny face being pulled. Your work must also be artful in the sense that, it's clever, it stands out - and it's care free!People and Portraits Exposed #33 years ago in Art Features More Like This

The series of 5 articles about Street Photography made by myraincheck and slightly edited by moi* continues with:
STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WITHOUT PEOPLE
First things first let's remember that street photography is not so much about the subjects as it is a style of photographing, a 'forma mentis', a way to think, see, capture images. A forma mentis that can be summed up in the ability of RE-INTERPRETING, RE-CONTEXTUALIZING, giving a different interpretation, placing in a different context, the reality around us, giving it an additional significant meaning.
Even if the classic structure of street photography is a meaningful interaction between human and surroundings, we can have street photos where the human element is not physically present. Sometimes it can be symbolized by other elements, sometimes it is completely absent. Let's show some examples:

CRAZY CATLADIES CATURDAYBecause we are about loving animals here, this weeks topic is ANIMAL WELFARE:CRAZY CATLADIES CATURDAY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Animal welfare is the physical and psychological well-being of animals. It is measured by indicators including behaviour, physiology, longevity, and reproduction.
The term animal welfare can also mean human concern for animal welfare or a position in a debate on animal ethics and animal rights. This position is measured by attitudes to different types of animal uses.
Systematic concern for animal welfare can be based on awareness that non-human animals are sentient and that consideration should be given to their well-being, especially when they are used by humans. These concerns can include how animals are killed for food, how they are used for scientific research, how they are kept as pets, and how human activities affect the survival of endangered species.
An ancient object of concern in some civilizations, animal welfare began to take a larger place in Western public policy in 19th-century B
