Whats your opinion on hyperrealism?I've always stayed away from trying to create hyperrealistic digital paintings.. because I've always felt, why do what photography can? (which may have been very immature of a thought on my part) But these days I'm finding it may be very good practice, good exercises, to attempt hyperrealism. What is your opinion? I will likely try it out but in general, do you prefer semi-realistic art? Or do you enjoy hyperrealistic art too?Whats your opinion on hyperrealism?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I will made Christmas gift for you all and explain it C: Its not that hard as it seems.
When I write Kirana e-mail what she need to take for this shoot, it was something like "You need 1 pound of floor and 10 small balloons. No. 20 are better." So, how it was done? We put water in 2 balloons and Kirana stand still, Ten and Fei pop balloons with needles after mine "1,2,3!!!" and in that second I took photos. Easy and hard at the same time.
I will give few advices. We tried to use stick with needle, but it was too lame. It made only a small hole and water pop out like...well...it wasnt cool at all. So much better do it with hands using some strength. Also its really hard for mode

Food. Polymer clay food. There's a strange fascination between polymer clay crafters to make food, if you ask many of us won't even be able to explain what's so addictive about making fake food. Some of it is crafted for doll houses and doll props, some people make beautiful jewelry with food, but some just make it because it's so incredibly fun.
5 Year Plan*Because I'll be teaching in about a week at SCAD, I've been thinking a lot about what to tell the students. And I wrote it out so that I could solidify it in my head. This stuff is for younger artists mostly, so feel free to skip.5 Year Plan4 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I spend time with another comic artist, sometimes I'll ask, "What's your 5 year plan?" In other words, what steps is he taking in order to gain control over his career in order to move up the ladder? Usually I don't get much of an answer.
The reason I think many comic artists aren't forward-thinking has to do with the way our industry is set up. Whether by conscious design or through the neglect of its participants, younger freelancers get into a habit of complacency while hoping for a chance to suckle from the teet of a major publisher. Waiting around for a career doesn't promote the idea of freelancers taking active control of their OWN careers.
If I had to sum up the 5 Year Plan
Just a little reminderJust a little reminderJust a little reminder4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some may love you,
Some may hate you,
And some may make you,
And do better.
Trolls will test you,
Haters will deject you,
But friends will support you,
When you fall,
When you rise,
And when you shine.
So through it all,
Through thick and thin,
Through heartache and adversity,
Never ignore who you are,
Never lose sight of who you want to be,
And never forget those who helped you along the way,
Become a better you.
Thanks for the support everyone
Thank your watchers for their support. Thank your group members for their contributions. Thank your watchees for producing beautiful works. There's a lot of thanks to go around especially in light of the last journal's little incident.
Spread the love (it's almost Valentine's Day )

Does it hurt? It feels like it.
Is it real? It seems like it.
Can they hurt me? They've done it before.
Will they go away? They never have.
Can I trust them? They betrayed me.
It looks too real to be fake. Why can't they leave me alone? Can't they bother someone else?
It's following me everywhere.
They're always talking to me.
"Give up, Daniel..Leave.." they tell me.
But I won't give up.
"Hit him, Daniel..Kill him.." they tell me.
I can't hurt anyone.
What is it that is only in my head?
Did I hurt them?

A guide to bot ownershipA guide to bot ownershipA guide to bot ownership3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Welcome, fellow deviants, to A guide to bot ownership. I'm DivinityArcane (Formerly known as Kyogo), and I'll be your guide for today. First things first, let's take a look at a couple of the things that bots can do.
First off, take a look at things like :faq510: and decide if a bot is even the right choice for you.
A bot can do many things, but a popular misconception is that they're just there. For a bot to be in your chatroom, it has to be running on yours [or someone else's] computer. If you close it on the computer, it leaves the room. For some people, this may be inconvenient (I know, it's hard to minimize a program sometimes. It bugs me too!) but that's just how it goes. If you want a bot, but don't want it to be running on your computer all the time [and therefor have to leave your computer running so that the bot will stay online], you can either get a friend to

This illustration started with the intention of making a cute cloud into an energetic storm. I wanted the cloud to have the contour of a brain so the importance of the mind in the brainstorming process would be prevalent at first glance. The preliminary sketchbook drawings in ballpoint pen were a mix of adorable thunderheads and raining brains. Experimenting with the placement of the eyes and the shape of the cloud was fun. It was harder than I expected to get the sizes right and actually make the brai

Well, yes you can! No Premium Membership REQUIRED!

5 Art Selling TipsWhile I used to see "art sales" simply as bonus money coming in on the side, over the past few years it's become enough of an asset that it justifies an art dealer, record keeping, insurance, and taxes at the end of each year. It's currently 25% of my total income, and that has a lot of impact over my work. And just like storytelling, design and page flow--abstract principles that keep my career afloat daily--art sales also deserve to be studied, theorized, and understood.5 Art Selling Tips3 years ago in Personal More Like This
These are guidelines, not rules. And while most of them usually work for me, they might not all work for you, so keep in mind that my market might be different than yours. Because not only do we not draw the same, we probably have different sorts of buyers.
1. Don't stay on a book for too long
I find that doing mini series of 4-12 issues is optimal for selling art. If you spend a year doing one-shots or 2-3 issue minis, you'll be hard for buyers to keep track of because it's too infrequent. And it's hard to make an i

I will be busy the next week, some event in school is coming up and I have to help there... in some way I´m not even sure about what it will be exactly bleh.
If any peoples are interessted, our school´s taking part at the BeSt, most of you won´t know it anyway. There will be many schools and stuff like that who advertise themself (and I have to admit I love the BeSt, thanks to this I found my school ;v; )
As much as I know I will help putting up our stand and, when it all started, draw there live. I´m kinda excited :>
I would love to meet some peeps (werden eh nur Österreicher sein schätz ich mal wenn überhaupt xD)
Okay, anyway. I´m so happy that I will finally be able to go to the Leipzig book fair.
Maybe some remember that I wanted to go there already last year but due to some incidents I wasn´t able to v__v
