Liam Sharp 3.0 - True Talent Never RestsWatch depthRADIUS
August 16, 2013 / by $techgnotic
Liam Sharp was and is one of the most sought after comic artists in the business. After bursting on the scene by drawing the bestselling Marvel UK title of all time, Death Head II, he was back in America illustrating top line comics like Superman, Batman and Spiderman as well as special projects for people like Stan Winston. For anyone unfamiliar with his amazing work, his galleries can be found on deviantART. I recently got lost for an entire day perusing a single file of his Conan illustrations.

Odyssey. I can think of no better word to describe the journey that took place these past few months.
With the prologue, “They’re Mad, They Are,” I began work on a vessel that was not yet ready for sea. And on that holed ship, together we embarked over open waters towards an unknown destination.
What I then witnessed both touched and humbled me. You, the mighty crew of the HMS Ody

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

Many attendees treat the three-hour preview as a time to scan the showroom floor, mentally map places to hit on the later dates, and, of course, buy the must-have items that may be gone by Con’s end. There’s not a lot of cosplaying -- although there is some -- and vendors as
Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-ConNo matter how tired your feet are by what is actually Day 5 of Comic-Con, counting Preview Night, no matter how exhausted your body and empty your wallet, there's always a bit of sadness in the air when the last few hours of Comic-Con wind down.Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-Con in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
In the deviantART booth, we witnessed something a little magical when the voice came over the loudspeaker to announce that Comic-Con was closed at 5:00 pm sharp, the remaining straggling attendees and exhibitors packing up stopped what they were doing and burst into applause. It was a mixture of relief, pride, and fulfillment of a successful convention.
Someone yelled, "See you in 365 days!" and there was a true moment of community with everyone in earshot. Sure, it's a sad sentiment, but it gives us all something to look forward to, and the months ahead will be filled with the happy memories of all we accomplished over the past week. Friends met that stop by every year, new friends, new properties to become fans of, new comic books to read and

DeviantART staffers continued showering visitors with stress balls, collectible pins, and swapped stories of their favorite deviantART experiences. It's a long day, but hearing some of the inspirational stories that originate from our humble corner of the Internet are truly inspiring.
Our final Comic-Con panel was held at 12:15 pm, and the topic was "How-To: Creator vs. Audience." Ron Martino ($techgnotic) led the panel, which talked about how the digital nature of storytelling on deviantART is changing the way the world interacts with its audiences. Alongside him were Wenqing Yan (`yuumei), Brian Kesinger (*BrianKesinger), Dave Elliott (=DeevElliott), and Hal Hefne
Friday, Day 2 of Comic-ConComic-Con Veterans know there's an ebb and flow of patrons as the week progresses. While Preview Night can be frenzied with excitement for the con to come, there's also a notable saving of energy, knowing that the scant few hours of the first day will be nothing compared to the full-day smorgasbord for the remaining 4 days of the week. Thursday seems even more crazed by comparison, but of course, not all con-goers can get a weekday off. By Friday, electricity is buzzing in the air as cosplayers bust out their second outfit, comic-lovers bust out their second wallets, and area convenience stores are running dangerously low on comfy insoles and 5-Hour Energy Drinks.Friday, Day 2 of Comic-Con in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Crop Sensor V Full Frame - Which is right for YOU?Many don't realise it, but sensor size can be pretty important when picking out a Camera. And here's why... Full Frame sensors have distinct advantages and disadvantages in certain situations. If you don't choose the right type of sensor with your camera, you may start to run into inconvenient hurdles. Firstly it's important to define what Crop and Full Sensors actually are.Crop Sensor V Full Frame - Which is right for YOU? in Art Features More Like This
The best way of explaining the terms, what they mean and where they come from would be to establish that we're well and truly modernised now with most of us using D-SLR's rather than film cameras. D-SLR's don't use film, instead they have a sensor that's sensitive to the light that is allowed in via the lens - it then cleverly converts the data collected into an image - a photograph! A full frame digital SLR refers to a camera that has a sensor size roughly equivalent to a 35mm film frame (24mm x 36mm).
A crop sensor is exactly what it says on the tin - it's smaller than a full frame sensor and

5 Reasons you should learn photography manually!I once met someone who was determined not to use a D-SLR until he had mastered a Manual Camera first. I thought he was a bit stuck up, maybe a little arrogant of his own abilities too...but actually, he was right. You will not truly value Photography until you go right back to basics and learn how the legendary pros did it first. So here are five top reasons why you should teach yourself photography on a manual camera!5 Reasons you should learn photography manually! in Art Features More Like This
1) It's Cheap
Many people think that Film Photography is expensive. If you're going all out and developing your own photographs rather than taking the to a developer then it might well be expensive! However manual cameras are a dying breed and you can pick up most of the bits and pieces you need to get started, quite cheaply.
2) Manual Focus
It's the simplest reason, but it's so true. Manual Focus will save your life. Learning how to focus your camera the hard way will make

The Macro Studio
Macro Photography can be undertaken pretty much anywhere, but sometimes you just want to shoot something in a neutral environment with a plain, unobtrusive backdrop. Many photographers shy away from doing this because they think it's too complicated - actually you would be doing yourself a favour if you did try it, it can really help improve your work.
For starters, you don't even have to have expensive flash. You could use any lamp that you can easily move around, to give a bit of light into your mini studio. You also need a couple of sheets of card or paper, and a cardboard box. The sizing is completely up to you and up to the size of the o

Site Update: deviantWATCH LimitationIn our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.Site Update: deviantWATCH Limitation in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Limitation Added to deviantWATCH
Due to constraints within the +Watch system, we have added a 5,000 deviant limit to the amount of deviants you can +Watch. This change only affects a very small amount of deviants, all of whom have been contacted privately regarding the matter. In the future, you will receive a notification if you attempt to watch more than 5,000 deviants.
Please note also that this only affects how many deviants you can +Watch, not how many deviants can +Watch you.
