:star: EDIT : It's almost redone guys, I still have to fix some little issues, I thought I could post it today but I couldn't manage to finish it so it will be ready tomorrow, I promise :star:
:star: Please be patient, the new tutorial will be much better than the previous one ;) :star:


Hey there, I recently wrote a full small mammal photography tutorial for the ones who would be interested in how I take my ratties shots.
Here it is
Small mammals photo tutorial by DianePhotos

It basically explains how to set the "mini-studio", help your model feel comfortable and edit your shots. As it might help with paintings too (the editing techniques), I thought it would be nice to post it here aswell.

I used similar techniques here :
Arkanys 8 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos  Lorich 9 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos  Lorich 3 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos  Fenrir 6 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos  Arkanys 11 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos  Belial 7 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos  Lorich 4 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos  Fenrir 4 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos  


I'd love to thank my friends here who have been very supportive when I came back and I'd like to thank you all for your kind comments and constructive feedback.

By the way, special thanks to :iconclairejones: and :iconlilyas: whom I took inspiration from for my journal layout, they both have got gorgeous journal designs in their galleries, you should really check them out !)

And now… I'm off painting something new!
Have a wonderful day everyone! :hug:



Note to tubbers/people who would like to use my work for signatures, myspace layouts, avatars, etc....

NO, YOU CANNOT USE MY WORK. This includes everything I have posted here or on my other online porfolios, blogs, etc…


It means you can use it as a desktop wallpaper, reference, etc… or post them on a blog/website with DUE CREDIT and NO MODIFICATION.
I've used a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-Non Derivative Works 3.0 License for some of my works though, just read carefully informations to find out the ones you may use.

The point is that I am VERY TIRED of ART THEFT. When people see an artwork used somewhere without given credit, they tend to think it can be used anywhere, for free. This is wrong.

If terms of use are violated, I won't hesitate to take legal actions.

Also, PLEASE READ DESCRIPTIONS UNDER ARTWORKS. You may miss some cool stuff! I often post details, WIPS and sometimes links to my brush files.

Thank you !

I hate when artists I used to look up to seem to just completely vanish from the face of the internet.

I'm always worried they've died.

She is my all-time idol, or at least the one who inspired me to paint more realistically. She is active on facebook. Search her real name. Her profile picture is of her against a foliage/floral background.

She has dived more into the realm of photography, but still posts some of her digital sketches and WIPs. I think she keeps that work offline due to so many misuses of her stuff. :)

Yeah! Her work was a big inspiration to me, also! Seeing her produce an ultra-realistic style that was still lively and original always had me wanting to give it a go. I've got a lot to learn but I'm working my way up.

It's nice to hear that she's still alive and kicking, though. I'll have to check her out on facebook, thanks!
