Looking forward to seeing your submissions to the group's galleries!
Welcome to new member!Welcome our newest member to the group:
Looking forward to your gallery submissions!
400 pixel image size minimumdA had an old rule that for images submitted to the photography galleries, the minimum size was at 400 pixels on the shortest side. Images smaller than 400 pixels on any side could only be submitted as "scraps."
dA doesn't keep much in the way of standards anymore, but I always agreed with this one and will continue to hold it for the group - it's just rare to have to worry about it, because it's rare to see any files smaller than this in the group submissions.
But it has come up recently, so am making general note of it.
Image submissions for the group galleries should be at least 400 pixels on the shortest side.
Possible exception would be for extra-wide panoramic images.
Welcome to new member!Welcome a new member to Respect-Us:
Please read the detailed submission guidelines on the front page (below the current journal entry box) so you know which images meet the group's themes. And we look forward to seeing your images become part of the Respect-Us galleries!
Welcome to new members!Welcome to two new group members!
Looking forward to seeing your images within our galleries, and if you haven't already, please make sure to read the detailed submission guidelines (linked in the box below the journal entry box on the front page), so you know what images will be acceptable for submission within this group's particular themes.
Thank you and welcome once again!
Watchers who apply for membershipA note for our 4200 or so Watchers of Respect-Us who are not members of the group:
As noted in the front page membership requirements box, becoming a deviantWatcher of this group is a requirement for membership.
The admin message center only shows NEW devWatch notifications. So if you are already a Watcher from a time before you apply for membership, we will NOT see a devWatch notification for you at the time you apply. That means it will appear that you have not followed the group's membership requirements in becoming a Watcher first, and your membership request will be delayed or declined.
So if you are a Watcher of the group who later decides to apply for membership - PLEASE COMMENT ON YOUR MEMBERSHIP REQUEST that you are already a Watcher of the group.
And of course, YES, you still have to meet the other membership requirements to be approved!
Incorrect folder submissionsThere have been a number of recent gallery submissions made to the wrong group gallery folder. I know this is sometimes a case of accidental mis-click, and sometimes a case of not paying attention.
I know that PolarExtremesStudio has, in the past, often accepted these and moved them to the correct folder with a comment to "next time please submit to correct folder." That is always his prerogative; he sometimes still votes on submissions, and so this may sometimes still happen.
Personally, I don't have the time or inclination to do that on an ongoing basis, so for submissions made to the wrong folders, I simply decline them.
As always, if your submission has been declined, the most likely reasons are:
1. Does not meet group gallery criteria for subject matter;
2. Does not meet group gallery criteria for quality;
3. Submitted to incorrect folder.
If considering those three reasons doesn't help you understand why your submission was declined, you can, if you wish, leave a comment on t
Membership applications pendingHi everyone, there are several membership applications pending in the group's message center right now, and I just wanted to mention that I'm in the midst of an insanely busy weekend at my studio, and I'll be able to take a closer look at those applications/applicants' galleries in the next couple of days.
* For those who have become watchers of the group before applying, as specified in the membership requirements, you'll see this journal as a watcher of the group, and know what's going on!
* For those where I've left a comment on your application asking a question - if you won't take a moment to answer that question, you will not be approved for membership.
* For those being directed to look at the front page membership requirements, it probably means there's something lacking about your application that you could fix. Go read the membership requirements - they aren't complicated.
* For those who haven't become watchers, you probably won't see this, but I'll say it anyway, becoming a
Creating your own MangaIntroduction
You have a great story, a bunch of characters and you want to create a manga. However, where do you start? Do you have it Left->Right or Right->Left? How should you publish it (*note: some publishers may have additional requirements/restrictions)?
The process is pretty much the same for any graphic progression such as comics.
Luckily, there are a great number of tutorials to help you on your way.
A storyboard is a panel or series of panels which detail the sequence of significant events in a planned scene, i.e. a rough sketch coupled with some words to describe the actions in the scene.
At this point you'd need to have an idea of whether you are making a left->right or right->left manga.
Photoshop tutorial- PS basics 4I'm back with my journal tutorials for Photoshop. I didn't post any new journal tutorial in a while. Anyway, my previous tutorial you can check here. I'll describe some Photoshop basics for everyone who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: Tilt-Shift, Customizing brush 2, Lens Flare, Mask Tool,.
If you wish to see images in full resolution then simply click on the images below (they are big 1920 x 1080 px). I used Photoshop CC here, so some things may be different in lower PS versions. But most of things may be the same in all PS versions. I'll make even more tutorials like this, so stay tuned. And if you like it, then you can fav this article. Thank you and enjoy. I hope it's helpful. More tutorials by me you can see in feature below.
PE: How to Scan and Adjust ImagesTutorial Time: How to scan and adjust images on Photoshop!
Hello everyone, welcome to this tutorial article of PE week!
well, you know, there is this youtube channel where there's lots of videos regaring tips, tricks and general advice for artists, and it is the best I've seen of the kind. But sadly, it is only in portuguese - hence why cinyu came up with the great idea of getting me to translate one of their videos!
I decided to pick up this one regarding scanning and adjusting images on photoshop, because that is one of the most basic, yet worst parts for many traditional artists. This tutorial is mostly for scanning black and white works, so it'll be more useful if you're working on manga/comic pages or inked art, but I hope it'll give you some ideas and help out in general on how scanning works.
I'll be translating the most important parts of the video, along with screenshots. Let's get started!
Things you'll need:
When It's HardHi folks! I realized in my most recent round of blogs that I've been a little quick to tell you all to put on your grown up panties, but this one is going to be a little different. Making art can be one of the most exhilarating things you'll ever do, but (and this is from personal experience also) 80% of the time you're going to fail. You'll spill your ink all over that glorious drawing. Oil from your hands will permanently stain only the portion of paper that was meant to remain a snowy white. Your computer's hard drive will crash or all your image files (all the WIPs especially) will get corrupted. You'll try something new and it just won't work out the way you envisioned. These things are the parts that aren't really spoken about enough, and so when they happen to us we assume that we're doing something terribly wrong. I'm here to tell you that we all go through these things and there's always a solution!

Scanning And Photographing A/M WorksIntroduction
A traditional artist faces a great challenge after finishing an artwork. How do they get it on their computer to upload and show the world?
There are two main options: Scan or Photograph. Both of these come with a horde of challenges and this article is to offer a starting point for the artist to experiment and find the best solution for their art.
There are a number of type of scanners, the most common domestic peripheral being the flat bed scanner. This article focuses on using a flat bed scanner and not a wand or other type of scanner.
First things, the scanning bed must be as clean as possible, clear off dust and pet hairs before attempting to use and make sure the scanner is on a stable surface for scanning. Some scanners will be sensitive to direct sunlight being on the outside, if you find that your artworks get a strange bright spot, do check that section of your scanner isn't being exposed to direct light.
UNDER RATED, UNDER VIEWED | ilonashevchishina*Under-viewed, Under-rated, Great Deviant, Great Gallery*
Every now and then I come across someone on dA who has a spectacular gallery that is somehow so under rated and so under viewed it literally drops my jaw. This artist is absolutely spectacular, such a beautiful gallery of nudes and portraits I really cant believe that people are not flocking to her page in their thousands on a daily basis. Well heres a feature that will hopefully help people get to where they need to be and that place is the gallery of IlonaShevchishina and here are a few thumbs to give a preview of what you will find:
