The Luminarium #23: Kibernetik
In our 23rd exhibit, we have explored the cybernetic & cyberpunk universes and our take on the idea of a Kibernetik future.
With over 30 pieces our artists have approached the theme in a variaty of ways and each presented their own unique visions of the Cyberpunk environment by creating stunning pieces about computer systems, mechanical structures, symbiotic biological & cognitive organisms.
This exhibition presents a crossing between advanced technoligical surroundings and post-apocalyptic worlds.

8th DD and Lum #22 Coming SoonSo today I received my 8th DD which is a pretty awesome early birthday present. It was for a piece made for theluminarium's last release Elements. So I do need to say a few thank yous for it, firstly and most importantly to jk3y who collabed with me on it, and frankly did the whole making it pretty part (I provided the renders and some early postwork/scene setting, he did the focal point, jazzy lighting and jellyfishes), hats off to you mate, this is as much your DD as mine! Secondly I have to thank both :devsavagefrong: and PolyMune for suggesting and featuring it respectively! Thank you all.
Also it is getting close to the release of The Luminarium's 22nd release, there are some really sick pieces in it and a couple of fantastic debuts so get excited!
Finally myself and agiaco are putting together the final touches to IN's next website, it is has had a much more organised development than the last incarnation and ha
Lum #21: Elements Released
For our 21st release we have decided to explore those fundamental building blocks of life, the elements. Be they the ones that the ancients first believed in; Earth, Air, Fire and Water; or the modern periodic table elements.
Without these basic pieces we would be nothing and we hope to have done their majesty justice. Elements contains over 40 pieces of art and music with contributions from old hands like our founder Jorik Dozey all the way through to the debuts of Courtney Wooster and Breli.

I've got 6 pieces in here, a mini-series of 4, another solo piece and a collab. Probably my biggest haul yet as it were. Go check it all out!
IN13 IS LIVELots of work, many months and one dead art collective revived later, we're back with our monumental 13th experiment! Check it out deviants (:
Some say thirteen is an unlucky number. We like to think differently here. Ironically, Intrinsic Nature returns feeling luckier than ever, featuring Experiment 13 on our brand new website. After a long, unanticipated hiatus and hopeful return, IN13 doesn't disappoint. The online gallery is jam-packed with a wide range of digital art and photography featuring the old and the new from our core of talented artists. And Don't worry, we have plenty of music tracks to keep your ears occupied while you get lost in the artwork.
IN13 unveils 54 works of art from 73 international artists. Don't forget to check out the exclusive interviews with our featured artists Macabre, Pezcado and Dyst. So wait no longer! Enter IN13 and experience what you've been craving ever since we mysteriously vanished from the web!
We're back folks!

DD #7: Jump GateSo I received my 7th Daily Deviation yesterday which was a really awesome thing to wake up to, really unexpected as well (although I guess DDs always are)! A big thank you to alltheoriginalnames for featuring Jump Gate, and a lot of love to everyone who has faved it and watched me since I really appreciate the support everyone on here gives me!
Also for those who don't know anyway Jump Gate was made for The Luminarium's 20th release which is a big milestone for us, and our best release to date. You should all check it out (click on the image below).
The Luminarium #20: Adventure
The Luminarium is proud to present our 20th exhibit Adventure! It is quite a milestone for us and we are glad to share with you what is our biggest, and quite possibly best, release yet. Adventure explores that inner curiosity that drives so much of humanities achievements. That desire to know what is over the horizon, what is beyond the next turn. The Luminarium has been quite an adventure for many of us over the course of our 20 releases and long may it continue into the future. Adventure holds over 50 pieces of artwork and music, with pieces from old hands like Glenn Clovis, Chris Cold and Alex Fralin, some outstanding work from Kuldar Leement as well as some notable debut's from Erik Schumacher, Anna Hollinrake, Matthias Utomo, Jakob Hansson and Scott Steadman. Come and Join us on our Adventure.

Ask The LuminariumFor our 20th release, we are going to be doing something a little different in regards to our featured artist. We are going to feature the whole artists group, after all without them and their hard work we are nothing.
In respect to this we are looking for questions from you guys and girls! Ask anything you would like to know about our artists, about life in the group, inspiration sources, favourite pieces and so on. We will get various artists from across the group to answer your questions!
You can send us your question by commenting on our DA journal (http://theluminarium.deviantart.com/journal/Ask-The-Luminarium-352635240), posting on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Luminarium/314548108048) or by tweeting to us (https://twitter.com/theluminarium)
Creating your own MangaIntroduction
You have a great story, a bunch of characters and you want to create a manga. However, where do you start? Do you have it Left->Right or Right->Left? How should you publish it (*note: some publishers may have additional requirements/restrictions)?
The process is pretty much the same for any graphic progression such as comics.
Luckily, there are a great number of tutorials to help you on your way.
A storyboard is a panel or series of panels which detail the sequence of significant events in a planned scene, i.e. a rough sketch coupled with some words to describe the actions in the scene.
At this point you'd need to have an idea of whether you are making a left->right or right->left manga.
Photoshop tutorial- PS basics 4I'm back with my journal tutorials for Photoshop. I didn't post any new journal tutorial in a while. Anyway, my previous tutorial you can check here. I'll describe some Photoshop basics for everyone who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: Tilt-Shift, Customizing brush 2, Lens Flare, Mask Tool,.
If you wish to see images in full resolution then simply click on the images below (they are big 1920 x 1080 px). I used Photoshop CC here, so some things may be different in lower PS versions. But most of things may be the same in all PS versions. I'll make even more tutorials like this, so stay tuned. And if you like it, then you can fav this article. Thank you and enjoy. I hope it's helpful. More tutorials by me you can see in feature below.
PE: How to Scan and Adjust ImagesTutorial Time: How to scan and adjust images on Photoshop!
Hello everyone, welcome to this tutorial article of PE week!
well, you know, there is this youtube channel where there's lots of videos regaring tips, tricks and general advice for artists, and it is the best I've seen of the kind. But sadly, it is only in portuguese - hence why cinyu came up with the great idea of getting me to translate one of their videos!
I decided to pick up this one regarding scanning and adjusting images on photoshop, because that is one of the most basic, yet worst parts for many traditional artists. This tutorial is mostly for scanning black and white works, so it'll be more useful if you're working on manga/comic pages or inked art, but I hope it'll give you some ideas and help out in general on how scanning works.
I'll be translating the most important parts of the video, along with screenshots. Let's get started!
Things you'll need:
When It's HardHi folks! I realized in my most recent round of blogs that I've been a little quick to tell you all to put on your grown up panties, but this one is going to be a little different. Making art can be one of the most exhilarating things you'll ever do, but (and this is from personal experience also) 80% of the time you're going to fail. You'll spill your ink all over that glorious drawing. Oil from your hands will permanently stain only the portion of paper that was meant to remain a snowy white. Your computer's hard drive will crash or all your image files (all the WIPs especially) will get corrupted. You'll try something new and it just won't work out the way you envisioned. These things are the parts that aren't really spoken about enough, and so when they happen to us we assume that we're doing something terribly wrong. I'm here to tell you that we all go through these things and there's always a solution!

Scanning And Photographing A/M WorksIntroduction
A traditional artist faces a great challenge after finishing an artwork. How do they get it on their computer to upload and show the world?
There are two main options: Scan or Photograph. Both of these come with a horde of challenges and this article is to offer a starting point for the artist to experiment and find the best solution for their art.
There are a number of type of scanners, the most common domestic peripheral being the flat bed scanner. This article focuses on using a flat bed scanner and not a wand or other type of scanner.
First things, the scanning bed must be as clean as possible, clear off dust and pet hairs before attempting to use and make sure the scanner is on a stable surface for scanning. Some scanners will be sensitive to direct sunlight being on the outside, if you find that your artworks get a strange bright spot, do check that section of your scanner isn't being exposed to direct light.
The Luminarium #15: SequentialThe Luminarium presents our 15th exhibit Sequential. Life passes us by in sequence; we are surrounded daily by events that astound us, move us, and affect us. Together we capture the Sequences of our imaginations, and reel in the transformations of our ideas.

How It Began"God, your two o'clock is here."
"I have a two o'clock?"
"He's been here since 7:45. I figured it's only polite to... sir."
God sighed. "Fine, send him in."
While He waited God cleared His desk of papers and blueprints; no need for outsiders to see His plans. Soon enough the door to His office opened and God stood, smiled, held out a hand towards one of the two visitor's chairs.
"God! Great stuff you're doing in sector 2-7-0! Great stuff!"
The man's hands were clammy, his handshake limp. Rumpled suit, porkpie hat, briefcase... oh Jes-- oh dear, a salesman. God's smile slipped a little but He soldiered on gamely. With luck He could shoo the poor guy away in a few minutes.
"So, what can I do for you?"
The man sat, briefcase across his knees. "Sector 2-7-0! Everyone's talking about it! What do you call it? Man and merman?"
"Man and woman, actually. And thanks. But we're pretty busy around here, and..."
"Oh! Right! No time for the wicked, eh?" The salesman winked and popped his briefcase,
