Here's another look at a few of the collages that came into the group's folders this summer:

Street plate with flairThis pink(ish) (magenta? strawberry? Pantone #15-2215 TCX?) colored street plate caught my eye. Unusual color for a construction site, no?

Visual Poetry. It may be easier to say what it is not rather than what it is. Instead of trying to define the genre, however, I thought I'd present here a few collages (from the group archives) that are, as far as I can tell, visual poetry even though the artists probably did not think to call their work that.
There is a journal entry HERE about a book and an article on visual poetry. Writing To Be Seen edited by Bob Gumman and Crag Hill, 2001, is another book about visual poetry. Other journal entries with visual poetry resources are HERE and HERE and HERE.

criteriaWay back months ago, some work was done on describing criteria for collages being considered for The Art Of Collage folders. Keep in mind that the list below reflects the thinking and words of several people and we borrowed liberally from other groups here on dA. A list like this can never be complete or exact but I think it provides a general idea about the considerations given collages coming into the group.
Some of the qualities we look for in collage art include:
strong visual impact – color, composition, content unique, imaginative visual solutions an underlying conceptual or visual framework. intentionality (even if it’s random, it has to be intentional)
Some of the things we generally avoid:
scrapbooking or journaling that does not have a strong conceptual quality as well pretty or decorative work that lacks a conceptual framework immature, naïve or superficial work work that is computer generated (for example, work made solely by a photo mo
Observations about the group. Part TwoRecently I’ve been thinking about the Featured folder. What do I want to see there? What does anyone want to see there? How can we use it to showcase collage work? Am I making too big of a deal out of this?
To explain the difference between the Traditional and Featured folders, I recently wrote that when I look at a piece in the Featured folder I want to be able to say to myself, “Whoa Momma (or Daddy, as you prefer) now there’s what you can do with collage.”
For the Featured folder, having flawless composition and color is not enough if the piece does not push at some boundaries or solve a visual problem with unexpected elegance or take me in a deliciously edgy way out of my own comfort zone. Pieces in the Featured folder should captivate me with beautiful subtlety or eye-brow raising boldness. If a piece in the Featured folder has some kind of narrative, even an unknowable narrative, so much the better.
One idea bei
Four Objects processHere's a glimpse into the process for the mixed collage piece Four Interdependent Objects in Ambiguous Environment.
Collagraph using three Sentra plates in one pass through the press. Colored pencil in the upper third added.
Collage pieces added. Colored pencil color added/darkened.
Piece trimmed way down.
Dashed line added. And, I think, by now some of the blue ink pulled out with an eraser.
Rotated. One more collage piece added. Done.

updateFinally. After waiting for two months for our stuff to arrive from Paris, we are getting settled into Seattle. It’s none too soon to suit me -- sitting on the floor to eat, read, etc. got old quickly. The container arrived with about 180 boxes, cartons and wrapped & tied packages of all shapes and sizes. We are down to about 20 or so unpacked boxes.
Using a tablet device to try to keep up with the group was a bit tricky for me but now that my PC is more-or-less up and running, hopefully I’ll be more on top of things. Not that it’s needed – the contributors have done (and continue to do) a great job of keeping things moving along. Thank you all.
Here are some items I’ve been thinking about over the last couple of months.
-- Visual poetry still fascinates me and I’m looking for ways to integrate the collage version into the group. Maybe. Somehow. A hindSIGHT issue dedicated to visual poetry might be a way to start.

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!

How to render MMD videos like a pro!
The DeviantArt MMD community is notorious for its drama and mini-conflicts. It has also been the one in which I've encountered some of the rudest people on the Internet. However, I have also been rather fortunate in being able to become acquainted with some of the nicest, talented and knowledgeable people I've ever encountered anywhere. Many of these have graced my gallery with their visits, comments, encouragement and attentions. And a few, perhaps some of the most talented, have graciously given me access to hard to get models, exclusive previews of their MMD work and even insights into their methods of doing things.
Occasionally, I am gifted with real gems and this was the case when garmus1 dropped a note in my inbox the other night. Apart from the depth of knowledge that he gives into his methods, he's also given me permission to share that knowledge with the rest of the community.
Now, I know that some of you will have, after reading only

To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--
the pain, strong and steady, in your chest.
You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
