Forest Interior tutorial by dpaint

Here is a way to organize the complex information of an interior forest. This will work no matter what your rendering style happens to be. Whether you are an impressionist painter like me or a realist, the basic building blocks for the picture are the same the only difference is how far you want to carry the finish. This photoshop demo is based on a traditional painting I did a while back.


The challenge is to arrange the information to give you the illusion of space where no horizon is apparent. Forest scenes work best when you use clearings to establish a foreground or middle ground to help divide space in the scene. It doesn’t matter if you are painting jungle or alpine forests the abstract qualities of design still apply.


It helps to visualize the anchor points of the composition first. These objects will have the most detail and can be flagged or spotlighted for greater effect. They will give your eye a place to go in the image allowing you to use areas of less detail as counterpoints.


I always start with large areas of color keyed to the average for that mass this helps to unify the shape. I set up the different layers and work between them to balance color value and shape. Once these are established to my liking I begin to develop and refine the painting adding interest as I go.

Help save a 16 year-old trans girl of color from being put in a mens adult prison with NO crimes charged on her by emailing Commissioner Katz.

butchimightbe:

She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/

I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email

Please reblog to raise awareness!

Security Camera

so way back in the early 2000s, I wrote a stealth fanfic about #17 and #18 from Dragonball Z, set in the future timeline,

The point of view ‘character’ is a security camera in a diner, because I wanted to work with a deliberately narrow viewpoint, focusing on the cyborgs’ interaction, with the post-apocalyptic outside world only vaguely hinted at

These are in no logical order whatsoever. I will forever love Spinister and Needlenose checking on an injured Windsweeper, though. I will also forever love a really injured Spinister being propped up while Needlenose surrenders… and Hot Rod just accepts it. Because that’s what you do with surrenders. I love them fighting in jet and helicopter modes.

Wanna make a monster? Take the parts of yourself that make you uncomfortable - your weaknesses, bad thoughts, vanities, and hungers - and pretend they’re across the room. It’s too ugly to be human. It’s too ugly to be you. Children are afraid of the dark because they have nothing real to work with. Adults are afraid of themselves.
Black Telephone (Richard Siken)

I feel like I’ve been sluggish and fuzzy headed for weeks now and it’s quite unusual for me when we’ve been having such lovely spring weather over here, which *usually* gives me a big creative boost and impetus to do stuff.

I have many stories to work on and I feel too clouded to do any of it right now, and when people (whom I would normally love to talk to) talk to me I feel like a frightened cat being pulled on a leash, unable to process it, and that scares me. So then I googled these symptoms and I think I need to have my blood values checked, because it’s quite likely my thyroid again
