A new place, a new homeHello people,
I'd like to take some time out to describe what has become my new home in the world of art. It's a place called Shadowness, some of you might have heard of it, some of you might have not.
When I first glanced at the website my first thoughts were; "Hmmm, should I join this site? The quality seems way too high, not sure if I can match up and if my presence was appreciated". Though I'm very glad I made that step in the end, just 10 minutes after joining my page was filling up with welcome messages.
How could I have been so wrong about this place? It's quite literally full of warm hearted people, trying to help you out as you figure out how the website. Receiving plenty of comments on my work as I went a long. It was the most welcoming experience I've had on the net probably anywhere.
So this was only the first day, I've been on the site since the 20th of April. I've been spending probably most of my online time there. It's really nice to see how involved everyone is. Includ

Starting slowly againHello people,
First of all, it's been a while.
It looks like I have finally found my turn again in photography. Did a shoot last week of a local artist and it went really well. Photo's of that should be on deviantart shortly.
I will reply to all of your comments and replies in the coming few days.
I hope you are all doing well!
A feature and features!Whats New?!
Hello good people!
Time for some more features!
As most of us have all encountered, it's hard to combine your life with deviantart. Making it hard to promote your work around here.
That's why I dedicated a feature to craigletourneau
Please show is gallery some love!

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
