Vector Art Features #8 --- Caturday!
It's Caturday!
It's Caturday and if you've not checked, the Daily Deviation page is featuring mainly feline art. On dA, we're celebrating the awesomeness of our feline friends and purrfect pets.
As a person sharing her life with two cats, I can say that having a Caturday has mean't so much to me. Love them or hate them, cats are a great inspiration and subject matter for many to tackle. The challenges of fur rendering and bringing out the characters can frustrate the best. So a cat feature article is a must right?
What is Vector Art?
In digital art there are two layer formats: raster and vector. Raster formats are based in pixels and vector is based in paths and points.
When you resize a raster image, you are expanding the pixels. Your program has to try to estimate what the colours would be for the additional pixels created. Due to this, the image loses it's clarity and creates a pixel effect.

Vector Art Features #3 --- Winter Solstice
Winter Solstice
The winter solstice occurs exactly when the Earth's axial tilt is farthest away from the sun at its maximum of 23° 26'. Though the winter solstice lasts only a moment in time, the term is also a turning point to midwinter or the first day of winter to refer to the day on which it occurs. More evident to those in high latitudes, this occurs on the shortest day, and longest night, and the sun's daily maximum position in the sky is the lowest. The seasonal significance of the winter solstice is in the reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the winter solstice occurs on December 21 or 22 each year in the Northern Hemisphere, and June 20 or 21 in the Southern Hemisphere.The 2010 winter solstice (summer solstice in the southern hemisphere) will occur on December 21, at 23:38 UTC or 11:38 pm Western European Time (WET).

Give a Bunny Blank Bonk!
Llama's are a stable of the deviantArt community, but they have one flaw. You can only give one to a friend, you can only give one to a deviant if they made you smile on the day you felt low.
So what can you do to show your thanks? What can you do to tell a deviant you enjoy watching their work?
Ever heard of the phrase "I don't give a fuck?" - meaning, "I don't care"? Well turn it around and for your friends, tell them you "Give a fuck" and you care!
Give a fuck, give them a BUNNY BLANK BONK! :iconblanksexplz:
How do you take part?
If there is something you want to do today or even over the weekend... give 10 people you know a :iconblankse

Q: What advice would you give to new artists?
Do you ever read interviews and skip to the last question... which is usually along the lines of:
"What advice would you give to new artists?"
"What tips would you give to fellow artists?"
I always do and I find the words from the people I admire inspiring and uplifting.

I ran a poll asking people if they were being interviewed, what would their words of wisdom be and the results were very positive and made me smile. I felt this is something that should be shared with the community...

Exposing of Stalkers
A while back I ran a my poll asking my watchers if they'd like more exposure on deviantArt.
So for those who are proud and want more exposure, I sent them a note asking them if they wanted to take part in a little experiement :eyes:
Below are the pieces I thought shined most in their galleries and feel are feature worthy in a news article. You may disagree and if you do, why not check their gallery to see what your favourite piece of theirs is! Tell them you prefer that piece to the one featured, favourite it!
If you like what you see, click on the thumb and tell the artist.

Sooo.....This would be my first ever entry as I rarely feel like I have anything worthwhile saying, but I have been tagged by ChewedKandi for this so thought i would give it a go.

The rules:1. Post these rules.2. You must post 10 things about yourself in your journal.3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 10 people and post their icons in the same journal.4. Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them.5. No tag-backs.

1)I feel awkward all day if i havent gelled my hair.
2) I watch far too many movies.
3) I still havent found an art medium I am comletely comfortable with.
4) I wish there was a way I could have a pet penguin.
5) I love being in the kitchen, and my favourite thing to cook is Salmon with mushroom and asparagus sauce.
6)I am rubbish at dealing with serious situations.
7)My favourite drink is red wine.
8) I once, unknowingly broke my leg when drunk and "walked it off", then found out about it about a year later when i went to the hospital and was xrayed for a different leg injury.  
9) I spend most of my time playing computer games.  
10) I like reptiles and used to have a snake named Akuma.
