Darkroom APN PhotographyAnimals, Plants, & Nature Week
Well, let me just start with a shocking revelation: Photography of nature didn't begin with digital cameras. In fact, landscapes and floral photography in particular have been around since not long after the medium began. This is the oldest landscape daguerreotype I can find on the internet, taken in North Carolina in the 1840s:
With 170-odd years to think about that scratchy low contrast daguerreotype, it should be no surprise that photographers from the early era through today have played with a wide variety of methods to capture the perfect shot. In this article I'll be focusing on the methods that darkroom photographers have developed and used to capture nature's beauty - from landscapes to animals and everything in between - plus some methods they've used to make the process more playful or esoteric. I'll also be examining how some digital techniques we all see now as "standard" in landscape p
Doujinshi: How to make a fancomic and not dieFan Art Week
Reading fanfics about your favorite series or manga is kinda common, but sometimes you can find images of the manga that look genuine but show the characters in unusual situations that you would never see in the canon. These are the so called 'doujinshi' or fancomics.
Before begin with tips and tricks about make a doujinshi, let's see some definitions:
Japanese word which literally means a group of people with the same interests, but it is often used as a shorthand for doujinshi.
Doujinshi is amateur manga publications, featuring either a cast of original characters and plot or characters from another manga or an anime (a 'fan manga'). There's all sorts of doujinshi, though it isn't as widely circulated as more popular mangas, such as CLAMP works. Doujinshi is often cheap but is just as good as regular manga (well, some of the time...), and is sold on eB
Manga Illustration: Step by stepSometimes people are afraid of traditional media in the manga illustration because it doesn't have 'ctrl+z', but when you can master this medium is actually enjoyable and practical. The title of this article was going to be 'Manga Illustration: Step by step in Traditional mixed media' but is too long, anyway I'll show you how to make an illustration using markers and watercolors. Are you ready? Then let's begin.
First, you should have the right tools, they shouldn't be the most expensive ones to work the only difference between the expensive materials and those that are not is how long they last on the canvas. The tools that I use this time are:
1. Windsor&Newton gold Ink, it could be replaced by golden marker.
2. Acrylic white paint.
3. White Gelly Roll pen.
4. Dust free eraser, or a soft eraser.
5. HB leads, you can use another leads but HB is soft and dark enough for
Playing With Instant FilmDarkroom Week
I shoot instant film. Polaroid, to be specific. It's my vice. I shoot a lot of it, and it's an expensive addiction at about three dollars a frame but I do it anyway. And I'm not alone - we have many instant photographers on DA who are still using this most unique analog medium even though we could just take some digital shots and not have to refinance our houses to do it. We like instant film because of its immediacy, but also because of its purity - what spits out of the camera is what you get, flaws and all. It's hard to fake talent when you can't fix anything in post-process.
But you can, to an extent, manipulate instant film. Before we can start breaking it, though, we have to look at what it is. So we begin with:
Instant? Film? What?
Instant film spits out of the camera and makes a print, basically
