I'm happy since there are only a few copies left of my second artbook LUX. :)

We're printing a second edition with a new cover (which I yet have to paint, that's why the book has no cover), and we're launching another FANART CONTEST for you guys. 

Just as with the first edition, I'll be picking some of your paintings to be included at the end of the artbook in this edition.

You can paint any of my images in your own style. For instance, if you choose a character, you can change their pose and paint it with any technique and style but they should be recognizable. 

Deadline is 16th February. 

You can send your entries here: martanael@gmail.com

Thanks! :)

In case you're interested, you can still buy the first edition of the book here:lux.edicionesbabylon.es/

Send them in low quality to martanael@gmail.com or send me the link if you're uploading the images on Deviantart (to fave them) or Facebook, so that I can share them. I will contact the ones included in the book the first days of September. 

I'm also thinking about giving some premium membership small prizes to some of the elected ones but I will tell you more info soon :)

Thanks!!

Hi folks!! :D

I need your help. 

Could you describe my work in one or two words? It could be in any language (including latin or ancient greek)

I always strive for a clash of light and colour, capturing the mood of reality with light and colour. This means I'd like to unify those two words somehow. 

Besides, it needs to sound catchy for a book title ;)

That said, I hope you can help me!

Thanks in advance!!
Bonjour!!! :)

COLOR CHANGING IN DEVIANTART?

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 2, 2012, 4:04 AM
Ok, so I had never had any problem with colors when uploading to Deviantart until now. I changed my Photoshop Color settings a while back since someone told me sRGB is better for printing, although in the internet some people say it's AdobeRGB, so now I'm totally confused. I had never previously changed anything about my color settings in Photoshop and it had always worked perfectly fine both when printing and in websites..

So, anyone can do me a favor and tell me which settings are the default settings for Photoshop when going to Edit / Color settings and also Edit / Assign color profile ? I want my default settings back!!!!! xD Thanks in advance!

The thing is when uploading to Deviantart I found out the colors totally changed while in Facebook everything was looking correct. I tried everything: using AdobeRGB color space and assign that color profile, then export to jpg, I also did the same but with sRGB instead, etc. And always the same result. Deviantart changed the colors but it was looking perfect when uploaded to Facebook, so it was not a browser problem. Weird thing is that if I download one of my images that is already uploaded in deviantart (with the original colors) and upload it again to Stash, it also changes the colors now!!! How's that possible? u_u The only way I could achieve the same colors as seen in the original PSD was doing a screenshot, opening that in Photoshop and cropping the image to the artwork, then exporting to png. Weird, huh?

You can see how the image looked with the colors changed (sta.sh/0bboupkb2ef) and the original (cropped from a screenshot) is here: Dinotopia Tribute by MartaNael

Thanks to the people who tried to help me in the previous journal!! :)
