Vector Week

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 12, 2011, 4:47 PM
Hello,

Next week I'm going to take part of the VECTOR WEEK. On Wednesday (19th January) I'll be in the #CommunityRelations chatroom to talk about vectors and whatever you guys ask to me.

So, everybody is welcome, see ya there!

Below the full list of featured chats, from the ChewedKandi journal:



What is Vector Art?
In digital art there are two layer formats: raster and vector. Raster formats are based in pixels and vector is based in paths and points.

When you resize a raster image, you are expanding the pixels. Your program has to try to estimate what the colours would be for the additional pixels created. Due to this, the image loses it's clarity and creates a pixel effect.

When you resize a vector image, you are increasing the distance between the points. Due to this, the image doesn't lose it's clarity and doesn't pixellate.

The key element of vector is that it's infinitely scalable without any quality loss and it's why we love it!

What is Project Educate?
Project Educate is a Community Relations ran series of events which focus individually on each of the galleries of deviantART. It is exists to help give further exposure to the galleries concerned, help educate those in new mediums/genres and host events surrounding those galleries for those who are already part of the galleries.

Vector Week will be running 16th to 22nd of January 2011 with a series of events, articles and contests for those wanting to know more about vector and those who are already part of our scalable community.

Events Preview
During the week, several events will be taking place in dAmn, the deviantART Messaging Network (for the chatrooms if you will). In order to keep those informed of which events they'd like to make time for, I've decided to post a schedule of the big events happening:

Sunday 16th January: A Trivia Event hosted by vector-artists. Test your vector knowledge and win some fabulous devwear prizes! (time to be announced)

Monday 17th January: A featured chat with Ryan Putman aka RypeArts. Ryan is the owner of big tutorial blog VecTips and a regular writer over at VectorTuts+ and is a freelance web and graphic designer, who's primary medium is vector. This featured chat will be especially useful those who want to know more about writing tutorials, using vector in webdesign and graphic design as well as finding out what it's like to run such an influencial blog. This will take place at 9pm GMT/2pm MST in the #CommunityRelations chatroom.

Wednesday 19th January: A featured chat with Cristiano Siqueira aka CrisVector. Cris is an internationally respected vector artist who works as a freelance illustrator. Creating amazing vector pieces for web and print. He is also a senior member of the art collective depthCORE. This featured chat will be especially useful for those who want to know about what inspires him, what projects he gets involved in, being a freelance illustrator and much more! This will take place at 7pm GMT in the #CommunityRelations chatroom.

Thursday 20th January: A Vector Orgy hosted by vexelove. Similar to Photoshop Tennis, a vector orgy is a social and learning gathering of deviants wishing to contribute to a live collaboration. You have 30 mins to add to the vector collaboration and then you pass the file on! This is a fun event and regardless of your ability and skill set, everyone is welcome to take part. All you need is Adobe Illustrator! This will be an all day event! :eager:

Further events to be announced, including the announcement of the winners of the third annual Golden Pen Award winners, informative articles, a big vector contest and much more! Be sure to follow the journals of ChewedKandi to keep up to date on what's happening!

Monster Box game for iPhone

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 21, 2010, 8:17 AM
This morning I found this game for iPhone and I would like to share with you people.
I don't own an iPhone but I played it on my brothers's one... So, I must say: Be careful, this game can be very addicting:

Monster Box Game

Check out the trailer on Youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeCeVo…

I realised, later, that the game was developed by a brazilian team :) so I'm proud :)

It's available on App Store for IPhone and IPod touch at:

Original Edition: itunes.apple.com/app/monster-b…

I don't know what's behind these llamas, but I like getting them.=]  So, keep giving me llamas, it makes me feel special =]

Anyways, I've uploaded the works I've been doing for clients at my website , take a look: www.crisvector.com

Depthcore XXXIX - Eve

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 15, 2010, 9:29 AM
Hello.

I don't have more to say about Eve - the new chapter of Depthcore than Justin (aka ekud ) already didn't say in this news article . So, I just want to recommend all of you to take a time and look at the ultra inspiring works of EVE and refill your creativity.

Unfortunately I don't have any work on this chapter. The year started very busy to me... I sold my current apartment and now I need to move to the new one still this month. Lots of things to do.....The time is flying and it started to get very short...Also, there's the usual client works...I need to keep doing them to meet all the deadlines..... I miss doing experimental art, I think I'll get my life back in march..:)


Please, enjoy Eve and tell me here your thoughts.

Cris
www.crisvector.com


pt:

Olá.

Eu não tenho mais a dizer sobre Eve - o novo capítulo do Depthcore do que Justin (aka ekud ) já não tenha dito neste news article . Então, eu recomendo a todos vocês a tirar um tempinho e dar uma olhada nos trabalhos ultra inspiradores de  EVE e recarregar sua criatividade.

Infelizmente eu não tenho nenhum trabalho neste capítulo. O ano começou cheio pra mim..Eu vendi meu atual apartamento e tenho até o fim do mês para mudar para o novo. Um monte de coisas a fazer.....O tempo voa e começa a ficar muito curto...Além disso, tem os trabalhos habituais de clientes...Eu preciso manter os prazos e cumprir todos eles......Eu sinto saudade de fazer trabalhos experimentais, acho que terei minha vida de volta em março..:)


Por favor, apreciem o Eve e me digam o que acham.

DA Groups

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 7, 2010, 12:00 PM
Hello!.

I hope all of you had a great holiday season, now let's get back to the work :)

The reason for this journal is to discuss something about the DA Groups. I think the Groups is a great feature, it's a good way to meet people with similar interests, promote events and such, but I'm having bad issues with the ammount of deviations submited by the members. Why don't add options to list the deviations separated by group and watchers in the message centre?

I am the kind of "deviant" that just watches friends and artists that I really admire and follow the work. I'm now a member of 4 groups and, suddenly, I have almost 300 deviations every day to check in my message centre. Of course, I simply can not check each of them and even give them a fav, at least.

Is someone here having the same problem or just me? Any suggestions how to fix it?

30

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 12, 2009, 11:12 AM
So, today I turn 30... With a bit of mixed feelings about this, time is flying and I'm getting older too much fast....well I cannot escape from this fact, so I must enjoy more my life.

2009 was not a great year in the professional field, specially in the first half of the year, due the world economic crisis, but anyways , I could get some important achievements and now some new opportunities are coming around. In latest months I could finally sell my apartment and now I'm waiting to move to another place. Some changes coming around and this is good :)

I hope in 2010 to dedicate myself to the art and illustration, not just for client stuff. I hope to be back here, posting new works again and I hope to contribute more to Depthcore, the beloved art group I'm member.

Thank you all for the support, even with my lack of activity.

For those interested, I have been interviewd by the Mackenzie University here in Brazil, they did a video where I explain a bit of my techinque and something about my life as professional Illustrator. The only thing it's all in portuguese (I don't have good english enough to make this kind of interview in english). but if you are curious, you can see the video at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDDME-…

Cheers,

Cris

Então, hoje faço 30.... com um pouco de sentimentos misturados sobre isso, o tempo voa e eu estou ficando velho muito rapido!... Bem, eu não posso escapar desse fato, então eu preciso aproveitar mais minha vida.

2009 não foi um ano sensacional na parte profissional, especialmente na primeira metade do ano devido à crise econômica mundial, mas de qualquer forma, eu pude ter algumas conquistas importantes e agora algumas boas oportunidades estão aparecendo. Nos últimos meses eu pude finalmente vender meu apartamento e agora estou me preparando para mudar para um outro lugar. Algumas mudanças estão pra vir e isso é bom :)

Eu espero em 2010 dedicar-me para a arte e ilustração e não somente aos trabalhos pra clientes. Eu espero voltar aqui e postar novos trabalhos de novo e eu espero contribuir mais para o amado Depthcore, o grupo de arte que faço parte.

Obrigado a todos pelo apoio, mesmo com minha falta de atividade.

Para aqueles interessados, eu fui entrevistado pela Universidade Mackenzie aqui em SP, eles fizeram um video onde eu explico um pouco da minha técnica e alguma coisa sobre minha vida como ilustrador profissional. Tudo em português, claro. O video está no youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDDME-…


É isso aí,

Concurso Urban Arts

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 4, 2009, 9:55 PM
* Hello. I'm sorry but this journal is for brazilian readers :(


Olá,

O Urban Arts está com um cuncurso de pôsteres bem bacana, em parceria com a Zupi Dêem uma olhada:

urbanarts


Eu pretendo participar, pois o tema do concurso me atrai bastante. Além disso, o regulamento do concurso é amigável, os artistas ficam com os direitos sobre suas obras :) O problema é ter tempo livre para produzir... Estou com tantos trabalhos... Engraçado que fiquei uns 2 meses sem trabalho algum e, de repente, não tenho mais tempo pra nada... A vida de freela é assim :)

Illustration Now! 3 - Ilustra Brasil! 6

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 29, 2009, 8:35 PM
Hello there!

This week the Taschen Books released the Illustration Now!3 and, by my surprise, my work is featured there.

smile

Check out the pages, my work is in the pages 354 and 355. I noticed some mates from Depthcore in the book too: Nik Ainley, Matei Apostolescu, My Dead Pony (mydeadpony) , Pawel Norbert... And some brazilian talents such: Kako, Daniel Bueno, Glauco Diógenes, Carlo Giovani, Tiago Hoisel among others.

I can't wait to get my copy of this book :). As soon I get it, I'll take some pictures.


Another thing: My work will be in the exhibition of Ilustra Brasil! 6, the most important brazilian illustration event. It happens in Sao Paulo, from September 14th to October 13th, with lots of lectures and workshops about illustration. Check out the Ilustra Brasil! 6 website the even schedule. Below the official poster of Ilustra Brasil! 6, by Samuel Casal.

smile


I'm excited with the exhibition opening, I want to be there, but I need to finish some works first... I didn't have any single work since 2 months ago and now I'm under pressure with urgent works :) That's the freelance life!


Cris

Pt:

Olá!

Foi lançado essa semana pela Taschen Books o livro Illustration Now!3 e, pela minha surpresa, meu trabalho está lá.

smile

Dê uma olhada nas páginas, meu trabalho está nas páginas 354 e 355. Eu notei também a presença de alguns colegas do Depthcore no livro: Nik Ainley, Matei Apostolescu, My Dead Pony (mydeadpony) , Pawel Norbert... E alguns talentos brasileiros: Kako, Daniel Bueno, Glauco Diógenes, Carlo Giovani, Tiago Hoisel, entre outros.

Eu mal posso esperar pra ter minha copia deste livro :). Assim que eu conseguir, posto algumas fotos aqui.


Uma outra coisa: Meu trabalho estará na exposição do Ilustra Brasil! 6, o evento mais importante da ilustração brasileira. Ele acontece em São Paulo, de 14 de Setembro a 13 de Outubro, com um monte de palestras e workshops sobre ilustração. Veja lá no site do Ilustra Brasil! 6 a programação. Abaixo, o poster oficial do Ilustra Brasil! 6, por Samuel Casal.

smile


Eu estou entusiasmado com a abertura da exposição, quero muito estar lá, mas eu preciso finalizar alguns trabalhos primeiro... Eu não tinha um único trabalho a quase 2 meses e agora tudo urgente...  :) É a vida de freelance mesmo! Bom, quem for me avisa, quem sabe não marcamos um "encontro não oficial do DA" no Ilustra Brasil hein?

Abraço

Hi,

Today I got this in my message centre: gureiduson.deviantart.com/art/…
I strongly suggest all my watchers to take a look and take some lessons about the case.
Gleydson is, without any doubts, a gifted artist. Also, he is a repectable professional and respectable professionals work under the ethical rules. It's sad, however, to see some people claiming themselves as "incredible" for getting some works by such unethical ways.


Cris

Pt:

Olá,

Hoje eu peguei isso no meu "message centre" gureiduson.deviantart.com/art/…
Eu recomendo muito a todos os meus watchers (tem o texo em português também) a dar uma olhada e tirar umas lições sobre o caso.
Gleydson é, sem dúvida alguma, um grande artista. Ele é também um profissional respeitável e profissionais respeitáveis trabalham sob as leis da ética. É triste, entretanto, ver algumas pessoas considerando-se "incríveis" por conseguir alguns trabalhos por meios tão antiéticos.

Sem mais,

Cris
