Anyway so apparently photos count. I'd like to know what you guys think of this and if there's anything wrong with it you can notice.
User avatar #47210 to #47177 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
No focal point. Water droplets on a leaf are overdone. Needs more contrast and brightness if you have Photoshop or a similar program.
User avatar #47211 to #47210 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
I thought it was pretty good, considering I didn't know what I was doing.

Why edit it in photoshop?
User avatar #47219 to #47211 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
Yeah, it's a great start.
Editing in photoshop can make that green greener and give you an eye-catching punch that you're looking for. If you're looking for it.
#47220 to #47219 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
Thanks for the tip.
Is water on a leaf really overdone though? I wasn't really trying to achieve anything, cos it was the second time I'd ever even used an SLR camera.

Also here's another one. generic flower photo, but I think this is what you meant by focal point? I could probably edit it a little to blur the background.
#47221 to #47220 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
That's absolutely better. Look up the rule of thirds and you'll get it spot on. And yeah, water droplets are like, a really big thing.
And, though flower photos are generic, I've found that nobody seems to mind. Everybody likes nature photos.
User avatar #47222 to #47221 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
Does this one have a focal point to you? The largest drop is definitely more in focus than the rest of them.

And I think it'd be kinda hard to take photos of stuff few people have seen before, or at least good photos. Cos if you could take good photos of it, more people would be tkaing photos of it, y'know?
#47223 to #47222 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
Are you missing the photo? lol

#47224 to #47223 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
er... yeah, not sure why it didn't upload.

This one.
#47225 to #47224 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
I think that's better, but remember that it's not necessarily what's in focus, but what your eye is drawn to. Everything in the picture could be in focus and it could still have a clear focal point. The focal point is defined more clearly as the main shape or part of the image that you would first see, or the part that defines the picture.
But yeah, there is a more clear focal point in that picture and I like the movement of the edge of the leaf. A picture should lead your eye from the focal point to somewhere else in the picture and the line on that leaf does that.
However, you may want to consider a more interesting or dramatic focal point. You might be able to do this by taking pictures at sharper angles; that picture would probably be a lot more dramatic if you took it at an angle that wasn't right in front of it. But I do know that it's your second time using the camera so it's not gonna be perfect.

Note: rule of thirds doesn't always apply to portraits because the person should be interesting enough so that the viewer doesn't have to see it at a "thirds" spot
User avatar #47226 to #47225 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
Thanks for your input. I haven't really met anyone with any knowledge on this.
#47227 to #47226 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
I learned it all from my high school teachers. If you're in high school and they have a photography/Photoshop class, take it. It's a blast and I learned a lot from mine. If you have any other questions or if you'd like me to critique anything, just let me know and I'd love to!
pic unrelated
#47230 to #47227 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
I'm not in highschool anymore, so I dunno. The teachers didn't really know a whole lot about the subject. When I took some of these photos I had people who actually knew about photography asking me all this stuff like "what aperture/shutter speed/ISO" and I'm just like "uhhhh.... yes"

I know a bit about that stuff now, which is nice. I have a gallery with a few more of my best shots adunsaveme.deviantart.com/ if you want to check them out, and when I get a new lens, I can go out and get some new stuff.

You've helped a great deal. I'm slowly getting an idea of what I've done right and what I can do better, which means I might be able to go somewhere with this.

And I think this photo could be edited. I've definitely thought about it. The background is awful.
#47236 to #47230 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
Yeah, it seems like there's not enough contrast between the foreground and the background. If you were good at Photoshop you could probably make the background black and white and then increase the contrast in the foreground.
But if you're curious as to what the aperture and shutter speed is:
Aperture determines where your focus is. Is the thing close to you in focus, or the thing far away in focus? I don't know how you specifically can adjust it because I don't know anything about your camera, but that's the basic idea of what they'r asking.
Shutter speed is how fast the camera closes light in to capture a picture. The faster the shutter speed, the faster you can catch moving objects, and the clearer they will be, even though they would be blurry with an otherwise slow shutter speed. However, when the camera captures the light faster, if also means that less light gets in, which makes for a darker picture. So it's really about knowing your target and what you're shooting at.
If your camera is digital, the auto setting usually adjusts it for you, but it's really good to know how to adjust those settings, especially when you start working with heavier and more complex equipment.

#47238 to #47236 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
I've messed around with the settings a bit and I've got a basic idea of it.

Just out of interest, is 'long exposure' an ISO thing, or a shutter speed thing?

In case you were wondering, my camera is a Canon EOS 1100D, but I think most of my photos were taken with a Nikon D60, if it matters. i don't think it does. Both models are pretty much the same from what I've experienced.

Pic sorta related, it was taken with the Canon.

Thanks for the help man, really. If you have a DA, I'd love to check it out. Those are some great photos.
User avatar #47266 to #47239 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
I actually don't have a DA. Long exposure is a shutter speed thing and it can be pretty tricky. The pictures are not all my work, though (seeing as the subject is me so someone has to take the photo). My mom is really great with lighting. Nice turtle picture.
User avatar #47287 to #47266 - adunsaveme (02/12/2014) [-]
You should give DA a shot, cos it's a handy place to keep one's works and an easy way to share them.

If you want to give it a shot, be my guest.

Slim, tall, medium length black hair, eye mask similar to Robin or Nightwing.

Costume: Black tights, utility belt, blue lightning bolt design. No cape.

Weapons: Retractable staff and other gadgets (this character is very inspired by Robin if it's not obvious)

Powers: Super speed, electrokinesis

I think I got the main essentials of your request down. I hope it doesn't discourage anyone else from doing their own version.

It's basically perfect
#47148 to #47134 - redninjaa ONLINE (02/10/2014) [-]
Okay, I decided to be more serious this time, so here is a VERY rough sketch of him in my style, not really the comic book style you asked for. I'm going to change it by a lot like the exact pose. If you have any specific details you want like facial structure, the hair, or accessories, that would help a lot.

User avatar #47123 to #47122 - pixmantle (02/10/2014) [-]
So, while I go mucking about making this, tell me why you felt the need to design a super-hero. Is this an exercise, or something you'll expand on? You said OC which suggests some sort of endearment with this character.
User avatar #47124 to #47123 - gmarrox (02/10/2014) [-]
I've always had an interest with making my own comic book superhero, but never had the artistic ability. I plan to right a short story and see if I can expand it into a book, or a comic storyboard, and maybe an artist will be able to flesh it out. Or I can figure out how to not blow at it.

The design is based on my character from DC Universe Online. The name Neurovolt was taken, but that was his intended name.
User avatar #47128 to #47124 - pixmantle (02/10/2014) [-]
Okay, so I just now sort of finished it, all I need is a quote to fill some space, could you provide?
User avatar #47130 to #47128 - gmarrox (02/10/2014) [-]
A quote from him?
User avatar #47131 to #47130 - pixmantle (02/10/2014) [-]
Doesn't matter, just something he could be saying.
User avatar #47133 to #47131 - gmarrox (02/10/2014) [-]
Hmm... "The skills of the Robin, and the powers of a God. I am not to be taken lightly" or anything along those lines.
#47137 to #47133 - pixmantle (02/10/2014) [-]
I thought of a similar but more original sounding line. I used to draw a lot when I was really young, I could probably do okay if I really tried, but I only sort of tried, so here you go.

A serious line with a not-so-serious drawing is a little goofy, but oh well.
User avatar #47139 to #47137 - gmarrox (02/10/2014) [-]
You definitely got what I was going for. Also, your quote is way better.
User avatar #47141 to #47139 - pixmantle (02/10/2014) [-]
Thanks, bug me tomorrow and I may feel motivated enough to work on a better one sometime.
User avatar #47125 to #47124 - pixmantle (02/10/2014) [-]
Tell me more about this character, as on a physical description he seems rather bland.
User avatar #47129 to #47125 - gmarrox (02/10/2014) [-]
I've had a dilemna as to whether or not to have him exist in a separate universe of my own creation, or the DC universe. I'm still working on an origin story for the former, but in the DC storyline, his origin story is along these lines:

Batman (Bruce Wayne) is dead (old age) and Terry McGinnis (Batman Beyond) is retired. Dick Grayson (Nightwing, ex-Robin) reinitializes the "Batman and Robin" duo with himself and a protege named Keith Aren. Aren becomes Robin and serves under Nightwing, learning the martial arts and gadget proficiency and technical skills. On a mission, he is captured by Splicer (OC villain, Neurovolt's nemesis). Splicer intends to convert Keith into a mindless servant by implanting a device into his brain. But realizing that he has no superpowers, Splicer combines Keith's DNA with DNA collected from other retired/deceased heroes, giving him electrokinesis and super speed. Nightwing manages to save Keith, but then sends him away, fearing he is incapable of mentoring him now that he has powers. Neuroslash starts vigilante work while trying to locate Splicer (for revenge, or to be made normal again, I haven't decided yet.) he then gets recruited by the Neo-Justice league.

User avatar #47135 to #47127 - redninjaa ONLINE (02/10/2014) [-]
Not really, just got some ideas from listening to some music from earlier, but I always wanted to make a comic of some sort. This was just me throwing some characters out there, see what comes to mind.
User avatar #47136 to #47135 - pixmantle (02/10/2014) [-]
So, you saw characters and stories when you listened to the music?
User avatar #47138 to #47136 - redninjaa ONLINE (02/10/2014) [-]

User avatar #47143 to #47142 - redninjaa ONLINE (02/10/2014) [-]
Well, I see openings for a tv show (animation and everything), maybe a panning shot of an image, action scenes, atmospheric scenes (like someone sitting on a hill looking over at a city or land ect.), or just random people. I don't draw 90% of my ideas unfortunately, mostly because i'm lazy.
User avatar #47144 to #47143 - pixmantle (02/10/2014) [-]
I too am lazy, but I am currently trying to progress into writing and drawing so that I can create my stories and accomplish something. You have gone much farther than I have.
User avatar #47146 to #47144 - redninjaa ONLINE (02/10/2014) [-]
I have about 3 and half years progress of on and off drawing. So I have some experience. If you want, there is a guy on youtube who does great tutorials on all aspect of drawing named Sycra. He is really good, and where I got my starting point when I got back into drawing just last summer.

'Aight bitches, I really need yo help!
I'm looking for a particular piece of art. Fan art, to be precise. 'Twas among the greatest pieces of fan art I've ever seen, but now that I need it I can't seem to fucking find it.
It was a digitally made picture of Korra, from LoK (duuh), being in the avatar state, with her eyes all glowy n' shit. She had like the angriest expression imaginable, like full-blown rage. It was looking like she was protecting/covering her face and neck with her hands and forearms. It was a pretty close up shot of her so you didn't see more that like her head and her upper torso.
I think it was posted on DeviantArt like maximum 6 months ago and I've searched for it there and on Tumblr for like an hour without any luck.
Yeeeeeeaah, so if anyone could just find that picture for me that would be great.
