Sony's PS4 Press ConferencePS4:
- will work with used PS4 games (the thing that it'd block used games was only a patent they made, which doesn't necessary mean they will ever implement it);
- is not backwards compatible with bought PS3 retail/digital games (you might be able to play them via the Gaikai streaming services, although I fear a repurchase of the respective titles is needed).
Ok, so I needed to state these 2 things first, because it's what counts the most and many persons don't know the truth.
I wanted to wait this much after the press conference to see the media reaction to it and also let the hype train leave me be so I can be more just in my statements, without being a total fanboy as I tend to be for each console separately, when they throw some amazing stuff at me. What drove me this excited was the idea of a new generation and the thought that blew me right into the image of the games I want to see in this new generation, because I just can't imagine how they'll be looking like.

This submission was gorgeous because the artist revealed to me how much she wanted to be an animator one day in the future. I can see so much potential in the drawing, the technical ability and imagination that went into creating this was astounding. The atmosphere and colours were also incredibly realistic and softly painted.
This wonderful woman showed me her progress from her post on DA to this - her favourite drawing. She has improved in leaps and bounds and this drawing was incredible, the attention she paid to the shadows was a true credit to her ability. A fine job! Keep an eye on this girl!
I was really blown away when I saw this drawing. From personal experience, I know how diffi

10 day character challengeHello watchers, fellow deviants, and passersby!More Like This
In the past I've considered making these funny challenges and stuff, but just haven't thought of a good one until now!
Recently, I was browsing my deviantWATCH and I came across ~mothofo's recently submitted picture of a new character she created, which I instantly fell in love with. I asked her, at first jokingly, how she always comes up with so many lovely ideas-- and she told me her inspiration this time around had come from ice cream flavors.
After a bit of thought, I considered trying this out-- and made a fairly successful two characters (one of which I recently uploaded).
A lot of people have asked me how I create my ocs, or continually make such lovely ocs... the answer to that isn't actually all that complicated-- I take inspiration from various objects, fashions, and cultures (or a combination of things!). This always results in something pretty successful!
At times some designs are completely random, but in a lot of cases,
Drawing tips - tutorialHello watchersMore Like This
Some people ask me how I learned to draw and what tips I can give them! So I wrote a tutorial and hope it will help! Here are my tips for you to become a better drawer!
First of all a good drawing stands with good materials. Good paper (no copy paper) and good pencils. If you're not sure, the expensive ones are mostly pretty good! For graphite I use Staedtler Mars Lumograph and for colour Faber-Castell "Polycromos".You need to use different numbers of pencils: 4H for very light areas and 6B for the dark areas. A big contrast in a drawing makes a better drawing! You can't make a good drawing with one HB pencil. You need a 6B or 4B to create more depth in the drawing.Choose a good picture. The greatest drawer in the world can't make a good drawing from a bad picture. A high-resolution image is necessary to see all the details! Next to the high-resolution, it has to be an interesting picture. The result could be a beautiful drawing, however a boring image wouldn't attract a

Great Press Conference! As much as I hate them, I must say that I was fascinated by most of what they showed! They did great on focusing only on games! And man...what games!
Unfortunately their software won't be enough for me to support them this time around. I couldn't even if I wanted to. XboxOne ain't coming to my country. It is set to release in 21 markets
Microsoft reveals XboxOne!More Like This
Will keep it shortas this press conference wasn't exciting at all. And not because I'm a Sony fanboy, but because I really hoped they'd do something great with this next console.
They showed a lot of functions I couldn't care less about. Maybe that's the shit in US. but ESPN is really not my thing. I prayed to God they'd quit showing off with how you can interact with ESPN live matches, but they mainly focused on that.
Here's the XboxOne console trailer!
I was aware that they might not show almost no games at all, but they did. And what they did wasn't all that spectacular. Will come back to this in a bit.
As an overall impression they saw this Press Conference as a chance to focus and present all the features of the console so that everybody gets it right so that when their E3 Press Conference comes they wouldn't have to waste time with presenting the console. I bet this year as well they'll waste a lot of time showing off with their Kin

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!More Like This
'Life Drawing 5' by ~algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
UNDISCOVERED III + POINTS GIVEAWAYSome time ago I started making weekly features of the works that I've found in the undiscovered browse mode....

I will also try to continue making those features and highlight all of those great and underappreciated artists. In every feature I will try to make some points giveaway too, just to encourage you to be more supportive.

Beautiful Photography ++Think Photography is easy as a pie?More Like This
I'll tell you what. Photography is the sum of a good amount of virtues. It is talent and inspiration. Creativity and imagination. Commitment and devotion. Patience and attention. Skill and technique. Team spirit and concentration. Art knowledge and innovation. Also, it requires a whole lotta time. And the list may go further and further.
So before you start judging the others' works, think. Don't go throwing sour remarks. Try to be a little sweet and understanding. And if you don't have anything nice to say, just move on. Find what you like and let others do what they like.
To every photographer who recognizes the need of all above, and never stops learning in the pursuit of those virtues, don't forget to Always protect what is yours. And don't you let anyone underestimate you. For I'm sure you put your mind, and body, AND soul in every single photograph you take.
