Would you like to follow me? :PHey there my dear watchers and friends,
as some of you may already know, I've started a new course at college, which is Communication- and Multimediadesign (CMD for short).
I also made a tumblr about sharing my knowledge of design and several art forms and helping other people reach their goals in that field.
If you'd like you can follow me over there at: http://theonewiththefoxhat.tumblr.com/ .
I'll be happy to see you there!
Take care and stay optimistic!
Photographer of the week: tulawena
With a sense of order AND dynamics, tulawena's still life photos make for some great, and sometimes even a little abstract, artworks.
Photographer of the week: ZahirBatin
The work of ZahirBatin may not be very traditional still life photography, but especially because of its humor and originality it jumps right at you and won't ever let you go.
ZahirBatin uses little dolls and action figures (and a little bit of photo editing ) to create a very lively and intense atmosphere, just well enough that you can almost hear that conversation between R2D2 and that chick. Keep up the great work, ZahirBatin !

Photographer of the week: BeKaphotoWhen I first stumbled upon BeKaphoto's gallery, I guessed she was a professional food photographer for those crisp and perfectly executed photos she took, but when reading her devID description, finding out she is actually a hobbyist trying to get into the professional food photography business, I feel even more overwhelmed by her art.
From great compositions to vibrant colours and rich but never cluttered environments, there is much to discover in BeKaphoto's gallery.

April Giveaway: 3 month sub!------------

Two 3 month subscriptions, of course
I like doing these when I'm offline for a while. It's my way of apologizing for not keeping my promises to be more active. I'm trying! Thank you to those who continue to support me. It really is great having a backbone of support on devART-- especially when you're in a college full of super talented art MAJORS X'D I'm just a journalist major who really loves writing about her characters and occasionally drawing them.
There are two requirements, as always!
1) Be a watcher.
2) Favorite this journal.
*Otherwise, no rules. If you want to post a comment though, I'd love to talk to you! On a side note, I'm now on the MMO Final Fantasy 14! It's so pretty
And I did a thing! For the first time in forever
And then I returned...It's been a while since I've been actively online.
But even though temporary, it did changed my perspective on some matters.
It's weird how much the internet can become an influence, and how this process goes so unnoticed. At a certain point the countless voices of people around you blend into a continuous buzz. A buzz that you soon get so familiar with that you forget there was a life before it. I guess that's what social media does in general; creating a buzz. An artificial need for you to continuously be online and check your messages, because you might just miss something otherwise. Life, in general, has become so infused with the internet that it sometimes scares me. I'm part of the internet industry. Hell, I even made it my job! But even I sometimes find myself wondering where the time has gone that I could work on an artwork for hours straight, without feeling that creeping itch to check my messages.
The last few weeks before the break, I've repeatedly felt bad about

PE: How to Make Pixel CloudsHow to Make Pixel Clouds
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to make pixel clouds. I have two different types of clouds I use depending on the piece; semi-realistic, and cartoon style. I will be showing you both today!
Let us start!
The semi realistic style can be done two ways, depending on if you are limiting colors or not.
First, I'm going to show you the way for if you do not care how many colors you use.
First you will pull out your pencil brush, as you would normally do when making pixel art, and set the color to white. After that, set the opacity to around 10%-20%.
Randomly brush side to side with the pencil, and then overlap some lines randomly as well.
Keep doing that until the cloud if about as big as you need it; it should look something like this.c:
We Are Resurrecting!:iconwriters-workshop:
Following our previous journal on our zombifiction revival, I am pleased to say it is crazy enough to have a go! I don’t expect every one of our 1500 members to get involved, but even if there is a handful each time getting some good out of this, then that’s one handful getting a better attack on their writing and understanding their niches. These groups hold a great opportunity to explore and stretch even the more experienced writers, and I believe that’s what made this group so good to begin with.
The Plan Batman
So here is my plan.
In May, we will hold a new workshop. The entire workshop will be encapsulated in one month: 2 weeks to write, 2 weeks to workshop.
Week 1, Day 1: Workshop brief is launched and you have 2 weeks to submit. The standard to what you submit can be anything from a rough draft to something you have worked on, it doesn't even have to be complete yet. (Please ensure you pu
