PE: Importance of AnatomyThe importance of anatomy.More Like This
Understanding anatomy is crucial to many aspects of your art.
You'll notice that anatomy is essential for drawing. It becomes difficult to accurately draw a complex pose, or even a simple one, if you don't understand what's under all that skin or fur, or even bark. Knowing how everything fits together is important.
Once you notice where that certain muscle is, shading and form become much more accurate and more natural. Knowing why the nose and eyes fall where they do make it much easier to draw from memory, and nail that natural look you were going for.
Learning the anatomy of the subject you're going to draw is quite important, and will definitely help you on several levels.
It's also easier to drawing sequences of movement. One will know what connects to what, and how they move. What is possible, and what isn't. (Range of motion)
Drawing people and other animals can be intimidating. Once you have a solid foundation, it's much easier

Photography Troubleshooting:How to Photograph FoodMany of us lament about a lack of subjects to Photograph - and almost just as many of us create something on a daily basis that with a bit of presentation, can look like a masterpiece. Food is one of the most accessible Photographic subjects and if you've no idea where to start, hopefully this article will give you a few pointers. Firstly, you don't need an expensive D-SLR in order to capture some of the food masterpieces you see around.More Like This
The above was taken with a Sony Cybershot which is a good quality point and shoot camera. As you can see, the focus is crisp, the quality is good and the lighting is adequate. It works well - and it's easy enough to achieve whether you have a D-SLR or something smaller.
Before you start cooking - get prepared. It's the simplest easiest thing to say and you'll likely roll your eyes at such a mundane instruction but there have been many times when I've found mysel

Thomas and John Knoll: the brothers behind the magic
Back in 1987, Thomas Knoll was working on his Ph.D. thesis as part of his studies on image processing at the University of Michigan. He had bought a new Apple Mac Plus to help with the thesis, but was frustrated by the fact the computer wouldn't display greyscale images on the monochrome monitor. This issue wouldn't stop him and so he decided to write his own code in order to be able to see the images in his new computer.
His brother John was coincidentally working for ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) on image processing at the time and discovered Thomas' code during a holiday visit. Clearly impressed by his brother's achievements, both began collaborating on a bigger applic

Photography Troubleshooting: Money MattersAs a photographer money is one of the most trickiest things to deal with. Competing in the local market not only for services but also in finding the cheapest but best quality way of providing albums and prints is a challenge. The difficult thing is knowing where to start with making a bit of money from your photography. Believing in yourself, whilst the corniest thing to say, is the trickiest for many. But you can do it. Making money, getting clients and building your photography is never going to be possible if you don't first believe in the service that you offer and the capabilities that you have.More Like This
Approach a magazine
In most countries there are popular photography magazines that nearly always have a 'submit your work' to us page. Some people think this is egotistical and vain, but honestly it's not.

A Glimpse into Futurism Art❖ IntroductionMore Like This
Futurism was an avant-garde artistic and social movement founded by the Italian writer, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, originated in Italy in the early 20th century. It emphasized and glorified themes related to the modern concepts of the future, including speed, technology, machinery, violence and objects such as cars, airplanes and industrial cities. It was largely an Italian phenomenon, though there were parallel movements in Russia and England.
Futurist ideology influenced all types of art. It began in literature but spread to every medium, including painting, sculpture, industrial design, architecture, cinema and music.
Futurism exalted the dynamism of the modern world, especially in science and technology. It employs techniques of Divisionism, Cub
Project Educate - Stencilling lessons: MultilayersThe art of producing a multilayered stencil is one which can take a very lengthy amount of time. The vast majority of which is the time spent of cutting. This journal covers the production of the print outs which are then cut out and placed to be painted. I myself do use a computer to create the various layers. There is a great debate between many artists over whether the use of the computer takes a lot out of the creative process. I would argue in favour of that if one is simply using a photoshop filter to create a stencil. The method I will be outlining below is pretty much what that filter does; But it still leaves a lot of the decision process to the artist themselves. The program I use is gimp which is a piece of freeware which is fairly easy to use and importantly... FreeMore Like This

Celebrating Diversity #1Welcome to this new series of Art Features! Even tho most of you are aware of the many many galleries and categories here on dA, I think most of us move in a sort of "comfort zone" between Galleries, Channels or Groups that provide us with a constant flow of new art. And sometimes we forget all the other great artforms, styles and media that are out of our "comfort zone". And today I want to step out of that warm and cuddly place and feature some awesome works from places on dA I don't usually visit!More Like This
Since this is the first entry, I thought I should explain it a bit more, so that is why there is more text in this article The topic of celebrating diversity is something that I really want to cherish. I am guilty of not fully

The-Egg: Darkroom and HDRDarkroom WeekMore Like This
Welcome to an interview with photographer Dave Porteus that will hopefully give you some helpful insights on the Darkroom gallery, and more specifically HDR!
1) Could you introduce yourself to us briefly, and tell us about your experience as a photographer within the darkroom gallery?
Abosulutely! My name is Dave Porteus, and I'm a photographer currently located in Binghamton, NY. I've been uploading to the darkroom category on DA for about 11 years, and I've been shooting mostly in HDR since 2006.
2) What made you choose darkroom photography, and more specifically HDR?
Before I started with photography I was using photoshop/paint shop to do rudimentary photo manipulations, so I already had some experience with post work. Once I got into photography I found myself doing quite a bit of post-processing with most of my images, so the darkroom category seemed like a good fit.
I got into HDR largely thanks to d
Art History : The LensbabyArt History WeekMore Like This
What comes to mind when you consider the history of photography?
For many of us, we think of the camera body and how it has developed from a huge, stationary box into something that we can carry around with us. As a consequence of the portability of cameras, a lot of people nowadays have them, be the cameras point-and-shoot or D-SLR.
If not the body, then perhaps we think about the traditional darkroom process of photography and how it has developed into a more digitalised process with regards to editing and post-processing.
So, bearing that all in mind, I can't help wondering how many of us think about the lens. Are lenses destined to be third in the history of photography? Certainly for this article, camera lens seemed to be a last resort, partly because the lens involves a lot of science and technicalities that not many of us fully understand and appreciate.
Therefore, I am not going to talk about the history of photography lenses in this article. If you are

Asexuality: I am louder than who I say am"I've found that people think it's okayMore Like This
to have all kinds of sexual orientation..."
"...as long as you have one.
If you don't then you're broken."
The Asexual Orientation
Asexuality is a sexual orientation where a person does not experience sexual attraction. One out of every hundred people is likely to be asexual and facts such as this are still pushing boundaries and challenging the thought that the pursuit of happiness doesn't have to include sexual attraction.
I am very passionate about creating bridges of understanding, as I have said many times before. To understand asexuality better, take into consideration that there are different ways of being attracted to a person and that these attractions are not necessarily tied together.
