My DeviantART StoryHello guys, It's deviantART's 14th birthday, and I decided to write my deviant art story for you.
Back in 2007, I discovered DeviantART through a friend of mine, we used to be so into the metal band "Nightwish" and we used to appreciate the emotional photo manipulation artworks in here, especially the ones of MySweetDarkness. I decided to create an account to give feedback for the artworks I liked, I created my first account with a really silly username, I'm not going to share it, though.
So anyway, after a while I realised that my username is really stupid and we didn't have the ability to change usernames back then, so I created a new account on Jun 8th, 2008 and I named it Rudz-is-me (that's not better either).
I started uploading my art to dA and I made some really great friends. Especially darkredbbb who is my best friend now.
Here are two artwor
I updated my personal website. It's now my tumblr blog. I switched from dA Portfolios to Tumblr for the lack of updates (sadly) And I wanted you guys to check it out the new design!
Thanks for checking out!
And I made the good old dA Portfolio linked to portfolio.rudychidiac.com
The Trad-DadThe other day I was chatting with STelari on Skype as usual.
Then she mentioned something she's working on, i won't talk much just see by yourself:
So the Trad-dad image in my head inspired me so much that I painted him on Procreate (Yes, Ironically the trad-dad is done digitally)
And here it is!
Ps: I'm not the trad-dad
as I mentioned on Skype
Life UpdatesHi guys!
It's been a while since i checked up with most of you, STelari is taking up all my free time so if I'm not talking to you blame her.
Here are some life updates:
I'm considering leaving my office job, looking for a new graphic design jobs available before I take this step.
I was supposed to take french classes during the summer semester at university but they closed the french classes.
I had a health problem related to stress, I'm under medication and the doctor said I must join a gym.
I joined a gym, I work out 3 times / week, it's going well, losing a few kgs (PS: I'm not fat)
I won in an art contest at university, some cash and here are the winning artworks (done digitally on iPad):

iPad art apps - A ReviewHi guys,
I purchased an iPad air in January. And since then, I've been experimenting with digital design; nothing serious but I am just curious about the digital paintings tools available for the iPad.
I downloaded a few design apps, some are free, others are not. I spend a while creating on every application, and then I decided to give reviews for those interested. Here we go!
1- Paper by fiftyThree (Free)
I started with paper not because it's my favourite, but because it's the most I use.
Paper offers quality art tools. There's the ink tool, great for detail work, and the stroke width changes according to the drawing speed - since the iPad doesn't include a touch pressure sensor. The second tool is the pencil, very realistic but cannot offer details

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.

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!
When you're not improving
