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

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
Realistic Pokemon Season 1 by arvalis
arvalis aka RJ Palmer is a long time deviant who has created his own unique niche at DeviantArt.
He was first known as the artist who drew incredibly realistic dinosaurs. Somehow his depictions of dinosaurs began morphing into Pokemon characters. He is now renowned as dA’s master of realistic Pokemon illustrations. His has been quite a success story through art. His rise has been quite a success story on how to build a following in the community. RJ has wonderful tutorial drawing sessions on his Dev

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

The Empire Bargains by dvsdesigner
Who’s the most important person now in the Star Wars franchise? JJ Abrams? Think again!
It begins in mere weeks from now: The countdown to the first of the next Star Wars sequels, Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, the first of a new trilogy for a new generation. The first 1 minute trailer, a mostly wordless montage of series’ heroes, will debut attached to Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 or on Disney-owned ABC Television. American culture stirs in its sleep.

Collection: The Leonids
The year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20. The passing comet “Tempel-Tuttle” leaves a debris field of meteoroid particles in its wake each year that the Earth will spin through on those nights. Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet. The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati

What if plants were intelligent, exploring and analyzing the world with a sophisticated system of senses?
Over at Reality Sandwich, a long essay outlines a growing body of research about the intelligence of plants.
Increasing numbers of researchers, in a multiplicity of fields, are beginning to acknowledge that intelligence is an inevitable aspect of all self-organized systems—that sophisticated neura

10 Tips to Improve your Digital ArtA while ago I posted some tips on how to improve your art. While that article was rather general, this one is an addition to it, focusing on digital drawing and painting – so make sure to read both.
It's made for beginners, so it's just really basic stuff. I hope it's helpful!
1. Get a tablet
Of course there are artists who create beautiful pictures with a mouse, but trust me, drawing with a graphics tablet is more natural and a lot easier once you're used to it.
Tablets have one big advantage over mouses: Pen pressure. Depending on how hard you press the line gets thicker and darker or thinner and lighter, similar to a real pen on real paper. I'd recommend getting a small, cheap Wacom tablet to start out.
Also make sure your tablet always has the newest drivers installed! You can download them on the Wacom website.
