Tumlbr: Massive Exodus

Tumblr new policy on adult content

The decision has been made by Tumblr management to ban all adult content mid-Dec 2018 - this means most of the Tumblr as we know it, will disappear
As most users will fly away - Tumblr was acquired by Yahoo - and most of the users would think back then that this kind of "cleaning" operation was to be predicted.

Where to go?

there are other microblogging like soup.io - but this one is in a very bad shape right now
another interesting alternative is sharesome.com as it is from the start oriented for adult posting - but is relatively new therefore unstable and another one is mastodon - which is still unstable... but has many communities to chose from

Designer


I want to be a better graphic designer. Any suggestions? : Design: "Use good ingredients. Limit yourself to the following fonts for the time being: Georgia, Helvetica, Segoe UI, Avenir, Bembo, News Gothic.
Get your images from a decent source. For now, use iStockPhoto—it's a compromise between cheap and good.

Read about the grid system from a handful of recent library books. Experiment with it and see what works. Don't be afraid to use big type and white space.

Draw. Get half a dozen different kinds of pencils from an art supply store and a few flip pads. Draw simple shapes and look where their shadows fall—learn to see areas of light and dark. Draw faces from photography books (best not to draw your friends at this point; they tend to get mad). Draw things you care about. Make line-only drawings. Make shadow-only drawings. Go see an Impressionist exhibit.

Look at great design work that you someday aspire to doing, and try to make an exact duplicate. This is how great Renaissance painters learned their craft, and is it immensely useful. (Note: Don't copy work for your paid gigs... I shouldn't have to say this, but I've seen it happen.)

Design skill takes years, but it will make your head a better place to live. It will open your eyes."

Digital Painting Process: DJ Goh-Goh


Digital Painting Process: DJ Goh-Goh - YouTube: piece: commission for Shwann of his character DJ GohGoh


Various way to mimic painting with Gimp

Gimp is this open source application that is a pseudo Photoshop - and it has many features, from photo editing to image retouching, or even painting

Here are a few of the filters available that would turn a photo in a fake painting
Distort Filters : Value Propagate
Filters/Artistic/Oilify
Filters/GMIC/Artistic/Painting
Filters/GMIC/Artistic/Kuwahara
FX-Foundry/Artistic/Water Paint Effect

Here is the forum explaining a few tricks and some tutorials

A proper tutorial to emulate smudged painting

And last but not least the online website to test some filters

Artificial Intelligence: Honey Badger Edition

Let say hypothetically that you would start training an Artificial Intelligence - and the twist would be that it would revolve around a meme - The Honey Badger don't care -

Starting from scratch here below is the hilarious result:
