INSANE UKULELE

  1. INSANE TAGS

    Masterpost for everything that I’m going to post, relate somewhat in content and allows you to save some time browsing through all pages!
    All posts will have proper tags after 07th of April 2014, please don’t sue me for not having them done now.

    These are anything I’m usually not so proud of:

    • #insanereblogs - the rarest of bunch, as I rarely reblog here due to clutter it makes. Basically anything I find worth your attention from other sources/blogs.
    • #insanerambling - I have periods of being in very ranty mood. I just spill the acid without warning when this happens. So, this tag goes to any kind of rants I want to elaborate on (Read More will be mandatory). However these are also dying off quickly.
    • #insanestatus - THESE will be frequent. Basically any info about what I’m actually doing, hiatuses, coming back from hiatuses, new items, et cetera.
    • #insaneanswers NEW! - now all Answer questions will be tagged with this. In case you’ve got a question, but you don’t know if someone else answered yours…

    And now for anything I create. Or trying to create…

    • #insanescribbles - for all my drawings/paintings/sketches/you-name-it! My passion. And suffering.
    • #insanemumbling - all the dramatic readings! I have to train my ridiculous voice talent somehow!
    • #insanehtmling NEW! - Because of making blog themes and coding for my webcomic, I also started gaining interest in making sites out of HTML/CSS/JS/jQuery scratches. Speaking of which—
    • #insanenirvana NEW! - Since I started writing games on (not so) simple game engine, Construct 2, this will be related with any kind of video game development.
    • #deviant universe - well… yep. I sometimes post DU-related things here, especially if I’m too proud of it not to share with you. This being a worldwide comic universe group I can only submit static images. Unless…
    • #insanereviews SOON! - YES. I decided to start this sooner or later - got all equipment I need and I can now record footage of games. And then review them. This tag will be for those. Either status updates, sales of reviewed games, new video announcements, re-releases, et cetera.

    You read it all? Good. Thank you very much! If you’re interested… or at least demand some kind of prize… click below!

  4. Blurring the lines: Glossing, scumbling, mixing, hatching, dithering and half-tones.

    theratutorial:

    So, now you know how to colour and shade your drawings, however, we’ve only covered cel-shading, with large sharpely defined borders. But how do we get those nice soft transitions, and how does one actually mix colour in a computer program?

    Interestingly enough, we can apply the same techniques as many traditional artist have for centuries.

    We’ll be talking about Glossing, scumbling, mixing, hatching and half-tone/dithering in this technique focussed tutorial. The tutorial contains animated gifs.

    Blissful Glossing, I tell you!
    I managed to pull it off with default Krita brush (Basic_Circle), it’s so glorious!

  12. WARNING TO ALL DEVIANTART USERS

    Sorry followers, this will be the only post I have for this incident!

    As if you needed another reason to avoid this site, despite their supposed copyright policy, DeviantArt may not protect your art from copyright infringement.

    While most blatant reposts of your work will be taken down without worry, alterations, edits, traces, and references are becoming regarded as acceptable by DA.

    I have been hearing an alarming amount of users complain about inconsiderate or lazy admins, as well as reports of infringing work not being properly dealt with. It’s starting to become the norm to see an artist’s work blatantly traced or altered without any consequence to the art thief. Apparently that copyright policy is just for show - and since the TOS says DA can’t be held responsible for damages (IE copyright infringement), you can’t force them legally to uphold their policy, even if you’re a paying customer.

    The past year or so I’ve been hearing these stories, I’ve erred on the side of caution, figuring each case must have something irregular in the details. That an art site couldn’t possibly have a nearly airtight policy and not uphold it. And then it happened to me.

    PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE USER RESPONSIBLE FOR TRACING IN THESE IMAGES. If you know who this is, do not flame or send hate; I purposely did not contact her myself because I figured it was DA’s job to do that. She ended up taking it down herself without any word from my end, upon asking if it was alright to trace or make bases from my work (to which I respectfully declined). She was extremely courteous.

    I filed a DMCA takedown request form, as per the policy. Nine times out of ten in my personal experience, asking the artist to take something down myself results in absolutely nothing but rude retorts sent my way; so I went straight to the admins. I was met however, with an extremely unprofessional string of responses - even when I offered an image like the one directly above to show this wasn’t just referenced or a source of inspiration, it was line-for-line tracing.

    If you want to see the copyright policy for yourself, you can find it here.

    Even after pointing out excerpts of the copyright policy myself, admin realitysquared refused that what he saw was against DA’s copyright policy.

    The key point here being that regardless of tracing, the characters depicted were not “the same”. That’s right kids, if someone traces your work or even alters existing work slightly to represent a “different” character, this is apparently acceptable at DA.

    I’m posting this to warn other artists about this site. Yes, art thieves can yank any art piece they want to rip off just about anywhere on the ‘net - that’s a give-in, and not using DA won’t keep that from happening. But I urge artists who value their rights to not give this website any money or traffic.

    Regardless of what truly happened with my case, whether or not their copyright policy was truly broken (I have yet to find anything in the policy that states what has transpired should be condoned) I know for a fact that no artist will want this to happen to them.

    What DeviantArt proved with this treatment is that it has next to no regard for their users, as artists or as customers. I will only be sparsely using this site to uphold a few current client lists for a while, but hopefully soon I will no longer be there. If anyone currently has an account there, I urge you to consider what has happened to me, and ask yourself if (A) you want to support a site that has such blatant disregard for artists and their work, and (B) you want this or something similar to happen to you.

    A+ Deviantart. Tumblr isnt even a site meant for artists and we get better treatment here than on your ART SITE.

    WOW, REALITYSQUARED IS A HORRIBLE SHIT-EATING FUCKFACE WHO DOESN’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT PROTECTING ARTISTS FROM HAVING THEIR WORK TRACED?

    I’VE ONLY BEEN SAYING THIS SHIT SINCE 2007 NOW YOU FUCKERS KNOW THE TRUTH.

    I’ve reported someone who reposted my artwork on on dA and I haven’t got anything back in more than a month or so.

    Not that I’m surprised, but still… and yes, RealitySquared wa always a gigantick turdmonger who doesn’t deserve to even be where is he now. Didn’t he had like journal way back where he said that tracing is ok?

    In case someone would wonder why I won’t post any of my personal projects to deviantART, here’s the answer!
    And also noting other admins about r^2 will be undone by itself. I’m serious.

    Man, in some larger, more cutesy point of view, dA isn’t that bad. I like browsing it from time to time and similar poop, however admins are doing jack shit to moderate and maintain the site. Is it that hard to hire more people for moderating? I guess they’re greedy when it comes to paying for something that might actually fix the site for at least a bit.

    I agree! I came back there because of people. To be specific - there’s a big (for my standards) collaborative group for comic artists in which all engage into either jams or storyline. Which is fun. Oh, and also watching people going ape shit is also my guilty pleasure of mine, just don’t jack me into this mess in the process. :’D

    I also wanted to give a tiny bit of money for sub, but fancy customization of profile and upload queue won’t win my money with admins like that.
    But perhaps once this disappears maybe…
