1984 by George Orwell. Been reading this book over the last couple of weeks. A life changing book when I read it as a teenager and still just as relevant today. Would love to make a graphic novel of 1984 set in an alternate dimension.
I only briefly knew Richard on SVS. Sad to lose a member of the SVS community. Glad I got to see his Art. I made a magnetic memorial lino cut. But ran out of R's so had to improvise with the letters.
@kristin-wauson it should be. The SVS teachers are way better than my University teachers.
I thought I'd share some photos I took of illustrations that stood out to me on what's left of the Berlin Wall.
I've always been a fan of Pink Floyd - The Wall album cover. I would often stare at it for hours while listening to the record when I was a kid. The Bum Judge with his courtroom wig on is still both a funny and scary beady eyed creature. So it was good to meet him and his cronies again, when I wandered down the wall observing all the excellent stuff people had painted on there.
Has anyone else been to Berlin? There's a lot of great murals knocking around. Just outside of town, The NSA Tower is jam packed with giant street art pieces. Definitely worth a visit.
@kaitlinmakes just wanted to say that you don't need to buy an apple computer to use MacOS. I build my own custom machines and last one I built was a hackintosh so it was running both MacOS and Windows 10. More powerful than a Mac but built for much cheaper. You just have to make sure all the bits you buy are compatible with the MacOS. I use tonymacx86 for all the resources to build this kind of machine. It not only saves money, but you can also upgrade without having to buy a new machine.
Hello, I'm pretty new on here. Si Gross. I mostly draw rocks, water, people and creatures. I've come out of 10 years of editorial photography.
Burned me out, so spreading my drawing wings and going back to art, to where it all began. Loving SVS Learn, haven't stopped drawing since Inktober.
This is my process for making the Slowvember challenge.
Slow entry - Isle of Dog. Part of a series I'm slowly creating called See Creatures. About other-world creatures from myths and legends and their just as strange modern day counterparts.
I posted this too early the other day - should've been WIP. I wasn't being slow enough.
@chip-valecek Yes it stays in the binary part of the image - although you can check boxes to ignore this info if you want to remove certain data (in preferences menu).
The XMP (Extensible Metadata Platform) profile it's called in adobe. So you can embed info across multiple projects.
If you are doing quick exports make sure you have the copyright box checked in preferences
There is also a menu called IPTC extension where you can name the artwork, creator, SKU inventory numbers and any models you may have used.
Also add a copyright notice.
I use a program called photo mechanic for doing batch metadata. Where you can store templates so you can copy and paste, if you have a lot of images to label at once. It's reasonably priced too ($150).
It's similar to adobe bridge but exceptionally faster and more intuitive. Built for editorial photographers banging out photos quickly.
@kathrynadebayo Worth getting a fluid head for a tripod too. The Manfrotto MVH500AH Pro Fluid Video Tripod Head with with an acratech levelling base has saved me so much time levelling shots (built in spirit level) and shooting overhead for smaller works. I have a Manfrotto 190GO! carbon fibre tripod. I like to travel light when out shooting. But if you're not travelling with it, an aluminium one will do. I like this one because I can shoot at 90 degrees with it, as the central column has two positions.
This is what I watched to choose my kit, not too expensive either VIDEO about Fluid Head best setup by Hudson Henry
@rhirsch Adobe are releasing Photoshop on the iPad pro in 2019 (no specific date). I use their Adobe Sketch on the ipad as I can send drawings straight to photoshop desktop. I like the plethora of brushes they have. I just upgraded my ipad pro to the recent edition. It's mega fast and the new apple pencil is better because I don't have to stop and keep charging it.
@davidhohn turning adults into a baby and putting them into baby situations is a comical act that pokes fun at the original character. Recently as an example, I was covering a political protest event in London for the newspapers. They turned Donald Trump into a giant baby balloon. It was allowed to go ahead because it was classed as parody by the Mayor of London.
