Best Scanner for Artwork: A Comparison I remember there used to be many brands of scanner but nowadays it seems the choice comes down to two main ones, Epson and Canon. Epson scanners get mentioned more often than Canon. This is probably due to the fact that Epson has a great reputation at producing photo scanners. Since I don't have all the scanners, I've asked a few friends Erwin, Don and Whee Teck to contribute their scans for comparison. Some scanners are good at one thing and not the other. This scanner review is written for artists and I hope it will be useful. Factors Some common factors to consider would be the speed, software, usability, colour depth, accuracy, size of the scanning surface and resolution Speed is important for those who needs to scan frequently, e.g. sketchers, those who work in the office with other co-workers. Software and usability would be the scanning software included and whether you can make adjustments to how visual attributes. Comparison Canon LiDE220 A4 scanner This is the Canon LiDE 220. V600.

The Gamut Mask - FREE Interactive color harmony tool for painters The Gamut Mask is a great way to created harmonic color schemes. It simplifies your color choices and saves you lots of time and paint in achieving unified color palettes quickly and easily. This Gamut Mask Tool was developed by me (Richard Robinson) and is provided to you free to use. The original concept of the Gamut Mask was developed by James Gurney (www.jamesgurney.com), artist and author of the fantastically illustrated Dinotopia books (www.dinotopia.com). Below are some samples of harmonic color schemes achieved by using the Gamut Mask. First I designed an image with a limited value study.

Google generally respects the "first-mover advantage." In fact, in its patent application for its search engine algorithm, Google states that the age of a webpage can be used as a factor in determining ranking. In other words, all else being equal, an older webpage is likely to get better ranking than a newer one. This is why it's often futile to try to create a webpage on a certain topic that addresses the exact same points in the same way as a webpage that was published earlier (but, of course, if the newer one has details that the older one lacks, then there is an opportunity for traffic). How do you capture the first-mover advantage for your Hubs? How Do You Become a First Mover? Do you know a specific topic that has only just begun to be discussed or explored on currently-available webpages? Any of these scenarios would suggest topics that are ripe for an informative, engaging Hub on them now. Write About What You Know!
Neil Cicierega Tumblr. | Here is a very simple little app I wrote in... Here is a very simple little app I wrote in AutoHotkey for Windows to help productivity. The artists I’ve attempted to give this to were horrified and sickened by the idea of it. It floats in the corner of your screen. You tell it what programs you use for work/productivity. Whenever you’re using those programs, it turns a pleasing shade of blue and times you. This way, you have a constant peripheral reminder of how little of your day has actually been spent on important things like “doing what you’re supposed to” and “not having fun.” Download it here: If you don’t trust me, you can also download the script, personally confirm that it won’t destroy anything other than your sense of self-worth, and compile it yourself with AutoHotkey. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. There are a couple other options on the Menu button, and if you really want to get fancy, you can change the colors by editing the .ini file. Thanks!

Introducción MangaStudio | Blog Concurso Manga ¡Buenaas! Hoy empieza la entrada Eduard con un tutorial básico para iniciarse con el MangaStudio 5 EX haciendo páginas de manga. Las técnicas digitales para hacer cómics cada vez se están extendiendo más por la facilidad y velocidad que nos proporciona en según qué aspectos del proceso, y por eso, aunque dibujéis a mano, no está de más aprender a usarlas aunque sea solo para algún proceso en específico. Este tutorial va dirigido a la gente que se está iniciando con el manga digital y el MangaStudio 5 EX, hablaré sobre cómo crear un proyecto y cómo me organizo a la hora de dibujar una página (que esto ya es más personal). Para empezar, recomiendo trabajar con la interfaz de “manga” ya que este programa sirve tanto para manga como para ilustraciones y tiene una interfaz para cada aspecto. Como nosotros ahora vamos a hacer páginas de cómic pues vamos a “Window” > “Workspace” > “Manga” y ya tendremos la interfaz preparada para empezar Por último añadimos los bocadillos. ¡Y listos! ¡Hola!
