After you upload your PDF to MagCloud, if it is over 20 pages you will have the option to select perfect binding for your print version. Although MagCloud uses the same PDF for saddle stitch and perfect bound publications, if you plan to choose perfect binding there are a few things that are good to keep in mind while you are designing your PDF. Content Near The Spine Saddle stitch binding allows your printed copy to lay flat when it is opened, allowing all content up to the inside edge of your PDF to be visible in the final print copy. Perfect bound publication are glued at the spine which results in approximately a quarter inch of the inside edge of your pages to be less visible because a perfect bound print cannot lie flat without breaking the spine.
History has no natural divisions. A woman living in Florence in the 15th Century did not think of herself as a woman of the Renaissance. Historians divide history into large and small units in order to make characteristics and changes clear to themselves and to students.
I stare at the flashing cursor, tongue-tied and stupefied-- outwitted by the subject. How to write about a project which is at once worthy and fundamental, and arrestingly, profoundly beautiful? The Reconstructionists features a different trailblazing woman every Monday who has "reconstructed ... our understanding of ourselves, the world, and our place in it." It's a hefty feat, but if anyone could pull it off it's surely the talented team of illustrator Lisa Congdon and writer Maria Popova .
MAY 16th 2007 • 3 Comments I first came across this effect by John Hicks on hicksdesign . It involves a shadow that slowly shrinks down into the background behind it. The end result looks somewhat like a tab, or slab of paper that is cut out of the paper and lifted up a bit. It's really a cool effect, and it establishes a nice rounded border for an element through the use of a shadow rather than an actual border line. This tutorial will show how I go about doing this effect, it mostly involves making an adjustment to the shadow of a rounded box.
The second bit of advice a beginning artist usually gets is “ draw from life ”. And it is excellent advice! After all, if you can't draw what is right in front of you, you certainly won't be able to draw what you see in your imagination either.
These are really valuable sources of knowledge for learning how to draw and paint. I recommend you study these books daily and apply what you learn into studies and your artwork. I recommend you study in this order but it’s really up to you. 1. Fun with a Pencil 2. Successful Drawing 3. Practice and Science of Drawing 4.
Okay, here is a tutorial lesson thing I gave my highschool art club. It is on the basics of portraiture, and while it is a huge and complex topic, I mainly want to get across one point—DON’T FOCUS ON DETAILS OF THE FEATURES, RATHER TREAT THE HEAD AS A WHOLE AND USE VALUE TO REPRESENT IT. Perhaps a bit wordy and not too clear. But anyway, I’ll explain in detail what I mean. Before I get to that however, I would like to quickly gloss over the basic proportions of the head which I consider to be of the most importance. These are not meant to be followed exactly, and not everyone will fit in perfectly with these.
I know you are all looking at this image and wondering, uh you lost it or something? I see no fancy colors, no stylized brushwork ugh argh why waste my time with this? Well, I think you’ll all be surprised in where this goes.
In the traditional account, Brunelleschi either discovered or verified linear perspective by literally painting views of buildings onto a mirror or windowpane. This "draw on glass" approach was probably not the method Brunelleschi actually used, but it fits well with the idea that a perspective painting is a mirror or window view of the world , and it soon became the standard way to convince drawing students that perspective really works, even when the scope of the problem is no bigger than a table top. one more convert to perspective from Charles Hayter, Introduction to Perspective (1813) Want to try it? Punch a small hole in an index card, staple or tape the card to one end of a wood yardstick, then tape the other end of the yardstick to the back of a chair, so that the hole in the card is at your eye level as you straddle the chair. Put the chair in front of a large window, sit, and look through the hole in the card with one eye.
Cinematic Magic – Making Your Video Look Like Film There are several things you can do in post-production to make your video look like film , and I’m going to talk with you about them in this article. But it’s important to understand that video, by nature, will never be film. Just like they’ve made electronic instruments such as pianos and drums that sound so close to their ‘real’ counterparts that only the most trained ear can hear the difference and only the most astute player can feel it, there is still a difference .
