Battledress Has Reason To G.L.O.W.!
Our very own Battledress, Lisa Berczel, recently bodypainted for the newest Smashing Pumpkins video, G.L.O.W.  The video was just released, and you can watch it on YouTube now!
This video is one more in an ever-growing string of high-profile credits for Lisa, who is an amazing artist, and a wonderful person! It's very exciting, and all the moreso when we see one of our own friends and colleagues getting great gigs and achieving industry recognition for her talent and skill.
Here's the blacklight bodypaint that Lisa was commissioned to paint for the video:

Here's her own journal on the release:

Resources Round up // November
Browse > Resources
A monthly article rounding up a collective of Contests,features and Submissions to the  Resources Gallery this last month.
You might have noticed that Resources and Stock images are now joined at the hip and merged into one parent category.This will not only help with some confusion within the  submission process for Stock imagery  but as acknowledgment that stock imagery is an equal valued part of Resources.Nothing will really change, the team members UnicornReality LawrenceDeDark and myself  will still do all our usual bits within the gallery.We look upon ourselves as one big happy family and are deserving of being glUed together till hell freezes over!

Creator's Creator # 4 Autodesk 3ds Max
You have all seen the SkinMasters interviews, now welcome to the Creators Creator interviews. This is a new series of interviews with the person(s) behind the applications that have helped keep the customisation community going by supplying us with many amazing programs to help us customize our desktops.
If SkinMasters are the creators, these guys and gals are OUR creators. Without all of these people, there truly would be no customisation community. What are you going to use to customize or help you customize if these people didn't create such amazing things?
I thought it was about time that we all got to know the people behind the applications and what they are all about.
Hello Creators, meet YOUR creators ;-)
The fourth interview in this series is with one of the biggest names in software there is. They have gave us some of the best tools out there to aid all artists in all artistic platforms. Whether you have used one of their products or not,

Digital Dolls Chat Grand Opening
The final decision on the grand opening day for the Doll Chat is Wednesday 10th of December
Apologies for it being so late post getting the doll chat started, but life got in the way of the planning (thanksgiving anyone? :P)
The day will begin around 14:00 GMT (09:00 EST) and will end anytime after Midnight GMT (19:00 EST for the americans). I hope to be around most of the day handing out lots of prizes and we'll have one grand prize of a one year subscription!
All the prizes (except one year sub) will be based on ammusing competitions that will take place at random intervals throughout the day, things such as "10 minute doll" and "put a face to the base" and other minichallenges I have yet to come up with. So if you're not there you'll miss out! Prizes include 3 month Subs, Devwear and 1 Month Subs, so we're not just talking mini doll plaques like your average doll contest!
The One Year Sub Challenge!

Beauty of Inspiration

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 26, 2011, 10:10 AM
Sometimes it's so easy to dismiss this place.. to focus on all the things it ISN'T and forget what it actually is. For all of its faults and misgivings and lack of focus on art, every time i surf the web for inspiration or instruction I always end up coming back here because nowhere else on the net gives me as much exposure to inspiration as dA.

SO i just want to share some of that inspiration right back.... check out the old man on scratchboard.. holy shit! Have you any idea how difficult scratchboard is?! I'm.. so amazed... and now i'm gonna run off and see if i can create something of my own :)

Love to all you creative people :heart:
