Radutron Promotion and Tablets

Radutron Promotion and Tablets

Good evening everybody! Radutron Promotion Please have a look at Radutron's new EP teaser, it made me chuckle so much when I saw it: [link] I made the cover for it - look here if you haven't seen it before: :thumb271583427: I'm really looking forward to when it'll finally be released. It's going to be free for download and I'll keep you posted about it. Tablets You know what? I've tested the Intuos 4 and the Cintiq 12wx at work but I've gone back to a Bamboo A6 I'm so used to it everything else seems like a hassle to me. I accidentally touch all the wrong buttons on the Intuos, my hand has to move too much around and starts hurting, a

a Game With Google Image Search

a Game With Google Image Search

Update Looks like I am soon going to be a full-time illustrator:D Wish me luck for the new job! Plus, scroll down to see what were the results for other artists in my Google image search game! There are still open spots to be included in my journal. So... I tested google image searches (not quite so) new function to search BY images. How reverse image search with Google works Click the camera icon in the image search bar. Then, you can paste the URL of a picture the image search will list all the websites where it finds your picture. That's nice, but not so fun when you find your artwork stolen somewhere. So don't do that unless you wan

I'm in today's DD by Wackypenguin

I'm in today's DD by Wackypenguin

How cool is that? So I checked today's DDs and there's my face! It's a painting I received as a contest prize from lovely ViTong4 (https://www.deviantart.com/vitong4). And it was the prize I was looking forward to most, I have to say, because her style is so awesome. I've never asked anyone to draw or paint me before - but I loved how she added all those abstract elements to her portraits and I was so curious what she could do to my big-nosed visage, hehe! When I received it it really blew me away! It turned out so wonderful! I could hug her to death! :heart: See for yourself: And here's more awesomeness from her gallery: :thumb266529290::thumb264901832::thumb170

See and fave my news article here: http://hel999.deviantart.com/journal/Art-Literature-A-feature-259564754 If you guys like it I'll do more:) If you have any suggestions about authors, poems or short excerpts from your favorite books I should use for the next features, send me your suggestions. P.S.: I'm also working on some art. There'll be a Dead Island line-art and an environment painting next (studying hard to improve with backgrounds OTZ).

How to remove stolen art from ebay?

How to remove stolen art from ebay?

Hola! It seems to be art thief season at the moment... I don't want to bore you with long rants. Art4love here: :thumb256367247: (thanks to hans-sachs (https://www.deviantart.com/hans-sachs)) and Ebay there http://www.ebay.ca/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140572350150#ht_711wt_905 (thanks to Tainted-Petals (https://www.deviantart.com/tainted-petals)). The only question I have is: How do I remove the stolen art from Ebay? I've clicked on "report item" on the article's page and filed two reports last week (different categories, because it was difficult to find the suiting one). But Ebay hasn't reacted until now. I got an automated email response, however, that I would have to register at their VeriSign progr

Fucking asshole...

Fucking asshole...

...what was he thinking driving over that cat in the street and not even stopping and looking if it was still alive? It lived. But it couldn't move his hind legs. It crawled to the other side of the street and screamed like a little child. This happened in front of my boyfriends flat the day before yesterday. And we went out and tried to help the cat. Put it on a towel and into a sort of laundry box to be able to carry it to the car. Another friendly neighbor helped us to find a vet. There the cat got an injection with painkillers and against inflammation. The doc said if he could move the legs a little bit again the next day he'd have a ch

Painting video and Gifs

Pssst... hey, you. Come over here... ...I've got something for you. I've been doing a lot of studies recently and I'm thinking about making some more gifs and videos about my painting process. Who'd be interested in more of that? Is there anything (techniques, subjects, styles etc.) you'd be especially interested in? If you have any questions about my way of working ask them here and I'll reply and try to provide you with visual help soon. But remember, I'm still learning too, so my process might not be that perfect or optimized... For now, here's a quick realism portrait study time-lapse I uploaded to youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch

100 Times 10 Times Better Than me

100 Times 10 Times Better Than me

Giant Watcher Feature! This is the result of a project I started last month: I made a new favorites folder and looked at all of my watchers' profiles (hell yeah, over 1300 clicks). Everytime I found something stunning I faved it to my new folder - but no more than one per watcher. This way I collected over 100 deviations from great artists - some very popular ones (OMG, I didn't even realize sometimes they were watching me!) and some who deserve much more popularity. Some are my friends on deviantART and some are people I would really like to know better. If I faved your artwork during the last weeks that deviation will be found below. I s
