Photography Troubleshooting: The Watermark FAQ
"How do I protect my photography and art in general?" ~Tahog (https://www.deviantart.com/tahog) "As Tahog (https://www.deviantart.com/tahog) pointed out, at least 1 journal per month makes it to the top of the list and is about stealing art. Sometimes this is something small such as posting a piece to facebook, other times you see hoards of pieces on a  website selling wallpapers or something similar. Regardless of how it happens, or where, it can hurt just as much to see your hard work disregarded and especially someone else profiting or taking credit. Protecting work is a huge deal for some people, and not for others. It depends entirely on your outlook - how you view your work and indeed
Stocky Directory
Welcome to Tasa's Stock Directory! Where stockers have lovingly been placed into categories of what stock they provide. (Stock galleries must have 3 or more images that fit into a category before their name is listed under that category) If you can think of a stocker who is missing from this list, feel free to let me know! Or if you are a stocker and you feel you are missing from a category just give me a yell, but bear in mind I only list stockers in categories if they provide 3 or more images of that genre. I cannot promise that all the stockers listed here will be active, I cannot possibly keep track of all the active ones. And any accou
Artists Toolbox: Colored Pencils
Colored pencils are widely used as a fun and readily available art tool.  I'm sure most if not all of us have tried our hand at colored pencils, even if it was only while we were children.  While colored pencils may not be as respected as paints such as oil, acrylic or watercolors, colored pencils shouldn't be under-estimated in the impact they can and do have on the art world. Different Types of Colored Pencils Wax-Based Wax based colored pencils are probably the most common and readily available types of colored pencils on the market.  As with any type of colored pencil, these come in varying qualities and prices.

Extracted and fiddled from watchers' Pixel Portrait Project.

The aim of this project is to make a huge (depending on the amount of participants, of course!) wall of pixel faces. Each face has to be in a 16x16 square. Each square should have a 1 pixel thick border (so the square in the center is 14x14 pixels in size). Also, you may only use 10 colors total per face to make it challenging.

So you're basically working in this simple template: I'm a 16x16 square!

Finished pieces should look something like the following:

Pixel Portraits by Mrichston Pixel Faces x5 by rocksicle :thumb27242153:


Remember that you can be as creative as you want to be! Experiment with different skin colors, multiple eyes or whatever weird concoction you have in that twisted mind of yours!

Also, this face should be a close-up. You've leaving out the shoulders and the ears. Example:

Right vs Wrong


Submit as many faces as you want but remember that to be placed in the final wall of pixel portraits it must be considered of quality by watchers, the project's originator.

All files should be PNG format and, without question, pixeled from the bottom up.

Each contributor that makes it on the piece will be credited and linked to in the description.

Quick recap:

  • 16x16 pixels
  • 1 pixel border
  • 10 color max
  • close-up of face only
  • PNG format
  • Deadline is Jan. 18, 2006


Submit under the Digital Art > Pixel Art category and throw the link down here for watchers (or you can note him or by put the link in this deviation -- so many choices!). You can group multiple faces together as one submission if you wish. watchers doesn't mind spending his weekend chopping everything up!

Any questions? Feel free to ask within this article.

Have fun! Remember: overall sweetness of the final output will be determined by the amount of helpful pixels received!
