Art theft and retracing artHey guys! How are you all? This... is not my usual life-is-perfect journal entry. It's about Art theft, and what is considered as disrespectful if you ever copy/retrace original artworks. To make things as clear as possible:-you DO NOT submit another artist's artwork in your own dA gallery. Your gallery is for YOUR stuff, your favorites is for the artworks you have specially liked while browsing dA. Submitting someone else's art and saying it's your own, is considered as theft.Clear? Should be for most, but you never know. Next:-you DO NOT retrace, copy, color, or edit another artist's artwork without giving them the proper credits. You DO NOT submit this edited artwork and say it's "your own original artwork" without ANY indications to which artwork you're editing/copying from. It WILL NOT help you in any way as an artist to receive compliments about an artwork because the viewers think it's all you. You HAVE to accept your own flaws and need of an original artwork
For anyone that need a new Art Program:I found out on Tumblr this morning that Adobe was letting people download programs like Creative Suite 2 and Adobe Illustrator for free.So if your like me and been using Programs like Photoshop elements and PSP 8 for the last couple of years and want to try something new, here's the Link:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1woD1x4CzokSxRsTaNU4K0nH7n0GAUSkXmwyfWAjLXu0/preview?sle=trueI would suggest just downloading the Adobe Illustrator first to see how you like it. Also it doesn't have the brush sets that the newer ones have so you might want to download a few brush sets. These are the one's I got:http://www.melsbrushes.co.uk/?p=177and one from DA:A few notes:When I save as a Photoshop file, you have to export it. And when you do that, the first box on is labeled color mode. It always has CMYK , and everytime I try to save that it says I don't have enough memory. I don't know if that's true because when I click that box and save it as a RGB file, it works f
Paint Tool Sai on Mac with tablet pressureHow to: Get Paint Tool Sai running on a Mac with tablet pen pressure supportSurprisingly a lot of people don't know that you can do this.In every stream someone asks, "What program is that?"Artist replies, "Paint Tool Sai"Then someone else says, "I want Sai but I can't use it because I have a Mac,"Not true! You actually can. It's not that difficult, either.Using virtualization software, you can get Sai running on a Mac inside a window as if it were a native Mac program.I use it to ink almost all of my pictures, in fact.Fair warning: This does cost a bit of money. You're looking at at about $150 at minimum to buy both Sai and Windows licenses, and add another $79 if you choose to get priced virtualization software.At that point you might want to consider instead getting Photoshop Elements 11 for Mac ($100), but if you want to run Windows software and games on your Mac as well as Sai, this would be the best option.This video demonstrates what
appreciate lifeThis is a story of what happened to me today,I wrote it on tumblr already and thought I just have to write it here too..So..Today I was coming back home together with my father.We needed some food,so father left me alone in a car waiting for him.After few minutes waiting I saw a woman with a little girl around 9 years old.A bald little girl in bandana..They were waiting for a bus or taxi I guess..Then this girl saw our car,me in it staring at her,and said "hello".She came closer to me and asked how am I.I smiled and said "I'm fine",knowing I am not.She said she's fine too.I looked at her mother,because I was..quite confused,I didn't know what to say and how to be,the look in her eyes just broke my heart..I knew what that means.Then my father came back and I realised we have to ride home.The girl realised this too..She turned around and ran to the lawn asking us to wait a bit.She found a little flower and tore it.Came back to my car,and stretched this flower to me,smiling happily."Ta
