Purchasing Your First Studio Light Kit
Lighting in Art Week
Studio lighting is absolutely a subject that can feel intimidating for a beginner. I bought my first studio light set-up about 6 years ago, and I remember the hesitation involved when I purchased it. I messaged back and forth with a friend who shot studio asking him what I actually needed to start out. There was a lot of terms I didn't understand and it was a lot of things to purchase together. As a connoisseur of natural light, I was also somehow worried a studio flash would give results like one of those pop-up on-camera flashes. That's certainly not the case though even with only one light!
First off, studio flashes are a much larger source of light that can quite literally overpower any ambient light including bright midday sun if you get one with enough power. This large amount of light can be shaped to wrap in different ways around your subject and the background with different lighting modifiers. You

Creating Dramatic Lighting
Lighting in Art Week
Hello all, for lighting week I'm going to show you a process for making dramatic lighting.
In particular, I'm going to show you a
process that allows you to create more engaging works of art.
This is mostly for digital artists, however there may be a few tips in here traditional artists might find useful.
This is a general introduction and I will not be going into detail with the tools I use--I will merely show you the process because odds are we all use different programs. This way it's very easy to follow!
First off, I highly recommend using artwork with a background--it does not have to be very detailed, but it will help you by giving you a light source and increase the intrigue of the viewer's eye.
Okay! Let's start. Here's a simple picture I drew of Dumbo. Dumbo himself will count as our background and Timothy the mouse will be our character of interest.
To shade this picture, we
simply put our light source above and slig

HERE'S SOME PAST OCBR'S
Plots of Golden Age 1
The comic takes too long to make so I decide summarize the plots in writing format. This story is divided into multiple arcs.
If you spot any grammar mistakes, please notify me.
1. Abandoned Laboratory Arc
Speed was sent to investigate and retrieve the remaining data inside a damaged laboratory which was assumed to be where the Berserkers came from. He was given a suit of armor called "Golden Thunder" to help him on his investigation. This armor was damaged during the fight against the Berserkers who roamed that area with most of them being dismembered by spinning energy beam. Once he got inside the laboratory, he ejected from the armor due to the damages it took and put on his modified gear. He took some tools which he thought would be useful with him along the way. He then came across the main computer room. The computer he found inside that room stored most of the data he needed (Details were already in comic). After he copied the data he found, he noticed that there was still a cap
Why economy and environmentalism don't mix
There are many reasons why economy and environmentalism don't mix. This is just another example I've recently learned about, from a geographer-biologist friend of mine which knows about 600 plant species.
There are two kinds of meadows known in the agriculture. The "fertile meadow", which you get when you keep fertilizering it, and the "poor meadow" which you get when you don't fertilize it.
The "poor meadow" is basically the "untouched-by-man meadow".
In German, they're each called Fettwiese (fat meadow) and Magerwiese (meager/skinny meadow). Google-imaging those words will get you better pictures if you want to see, especially the European meadows.
Imagine a fertilizer is like a protein shake for plants. There are "body builder plants" which grow big and strong with this. They are basically the "Ey, get outta our sight, this is OUR gym!" kind of douché plants because, by growing big and strong, they take away the space of the smaller, fragile plants which don't actually need suc
Only one last chance...
This is it, Only one last chance to #SaveYourInternet to oppose Axel Voss and the controversy, infamous and shameful Article 17 (Article 11 and 13)
But most important: Do not vote for CDU/CSU, any Pro-Copyright Directive Parties and the parties who supported Article 17 (Article 11 and 13) in the next election! This is only a beginning of the collapse of the EU due of the controversy Article 17 (Article 11 and 13)...
and Don't forget to boycott the companies who supported Article 17 (Article 11 and 13) too!
Remember, Do not lose hope and Never give up!

Late Night/Early Morning Feature
Cannot sleep so I am doing a feature! Yay! Before we get to the lovely artist's work I have to get something off of my chest. Yesterday I finished the second season of The OA.......... I am very sad and disappointed in the ending of the whole thing.... JUST NO! I thought there was going to more to the story than what happened. It makes me mad lol. Has anybody else seen this show? How did you feel? Please let me know! I need to know if I am the only one who feels this way or not. The first season I liked but didn't like at the same time. What I mean by that is that it definitely kept me watching. It was intriguing and thought they could really do something great with it. I wanted to see where it went from there so decided to continue when the second season came out. Boy did it go in a completely different direction from how I thought it would and not in a good way. I felt like there could be more to where it was leading and could have really gone into those thing
8 Facts About Uproar
So I was also tagged by :iconnoxv: to do an "8 Facts About..." for one of my other characters: Uproar, the two-fisted crimefighter from Chicago and member of the Coalition of Champions:
Anyway, so the way this goes is...
1. Post all rules
2. Write 8 facts about your character
3. Tag 8 people- Nope
4. Write the name of the character with its owner.- Nope x2
Ok, so, without further ado...
1. Uproar is a character originally created for a defunct shared universe attempt by me and a couple other guys called "Capes." There, he was an older, more mature character, a member of the Justice League/Avengers style major hero team, and in a relationship with a female speedster named "Blade Runner."
2. Uproar's inspiration literally came from the name. I took a bunch of random words at the time and considered what kind of character would have that word as a name for their superheroic identity. In the case of Uproar, it made me think of lions and a loud, pow

Small Gestures: The Missing Ink
Thanks for sticking with me, despite the comment silence. I've had the joy of a three day migraine which has knocked me on my ass. I'm better now though. Dependence is still looking goof for Friday/Saturday posting. I'm also hoping to get to comment responses later.
At the request of
I shared a few hundred words of text from Small Gestures that never made it to the actual story. It follows what happens with Sarah following Sam's disappearance from her office. On the advice of him and a few others I've decided to share it here. The sequence picks up following the chapter starting page 566. Be sure to let me know what you think.
"It's running!" Sarah laughed in disbelief. "It's running. No errors or complaints."
She let out a long, slow sigh of relief and looked down at her desk. "Ok mister, I owe you big time. We can do whatever you want when we get home."
Sarah waited for a moment, her eyes scanning the desk for miniature s
