PE: How to Fix Animation 'Trailing' in GimpHow to Fix Animation "Trailing" in Gimp
So, you just made an animation in gimp on a transparent background. You go to save it, check the animation for last minute fixes, and BAM! The animation looks like this!
You are probably wondering, "What did I do wrong?" or how do I fix this?". Well if this has ever happened to you and you're still wondering how to fix it, than please read the rest of this tutorial.
Note that this tutorial is only guaranteed to work in Gimp (You can get a free copy at gimp.org). This method may work in other programs, but Gimp is the only program I have that officially supports animation.
So after you have made your animation, just save it like you would normally. If you normally just press the save button, make sure to press "Save As" instead.
If you use gimp 2.8. or newer, press "Export" instead of "Save as".
dA Life #08: Hosting a Contest on dAWelcome to the eighth dA Life blog, a series created to help you enjoy your time on dA and use it's many tools for sharing your art, appreciating other people's art and taking part in the wonderful community that we have here.
Hosting a contest on dA is a really fun way to inspire other artists and do something positive for the community. If you've never run a contest before, it can seem like a daunting task so to make it a little easier, here are some things to consider before you create your contest and open it to the deviant public...
Your contest should have a theme. It can be as vague (Aliens, Summer, Cats) or as specific as you like (Alien Cats in Summer). When choosing your theme, take time to consider it's appeal to your potential entrants. A less specific theme is likely to attact more people as the scope for entries is wider. It depends on whether or not you want your contest to be huge - sometimes, bigger isn't always bet
CSS Tricks: Journal break-downThis has been done before by many others I don't want to step on anyone's toes, I just wanted to give this a go myself
If you still write CSS NOT using gruze … stop that! Start using gruze. Just do it!
There are a few "hacks" that you will need to make it work totally under your control, but there's always help with those
Well, here comes help with those hacks (I gotta give ginkgografix credit for some of it, go hug her! That's an order )
At the end of this CSS Trick I will provide you with a template, that I use myself, as a base for creating new skins. It will only contain the basic classes of the journal deviation, from which it is made up of, the basic HTML, without any content.
Now, I know you will say: but that is not the default skin! That is not how journals without CSS look like! And you are right. But. There is always a but. But the default journal skin for coders is not the same as an unsk
Activity vs. Community When combining millions of artists working with different media, style, experience level, etc. being here can become overwhelming and finding your "place" can seem almost impossible. Throughout the last few weeks I've noticed more and more people asking "how can I be more active?" and "how do I get involved in the community?"
These are both the same question and completely different questions at the same time. Though the answers to both are quite similar if not the same the difference between activity and community is huge! We're going to cover the answers and difference to both of those in this article.
There are three basic ways to being active on dA and getting involved the community. Everything after this will actually lead right back to these three things.
Commenting: is the best and most effective way to particicpate in our community becaus
The End of the Day: A Watercolour Tutorial PLANNING STAGE
This was a fairly involved project in terms of preparatory work. I had an image in mind, a feeling, a mood and knew that I would only really have real world reference to work from; the rest coming from my own imagination and from playing the PS3 game 'The Last of Us'.
As the scene is a place I walk past most days I am very familiar with it (the benefits of being on location cannot be overstated), but I also used Google street view to get an additional vantage point. In fact the bus that features in the finished piece was inspired from the Google street view image below:
I started by scrawling an outline of my thoughts, roughing out the general layout. Really this is just a way for me to start the process, to explore the scene and see what I find works, and what doesn't:
Then begins a refining process. Over the next 2 sketches I hone in on the composition and gravitate to a more exact view
