About black and whiteI like black and white photography. It is beautiful thing. But there is a sin I tend to fall in: lot of times I use black and white as a last resort to save an image. And this is what I want to avoid in the future. Let me explain the sin.
When I create photos I try to make it look good when I taking them. I spend a lot of time watching through the viewer and try to set the camera to make a good image. Then comes the retouching. And this is where problem comes. I try to edit it, change values to make nice colors etc. But it just doesn't work. Then I put it in black and white and miracle! The image looks good. This happens mostly at images that has way too colors, so it harms the eye (there are exceptions, but general rule there should be 3 colors on an image at any time, so it is good to look at it). If an image only looks good in b&w it shows it isn't a good image at all. And the ones that are messy even in b&w... now that is another story...
This is what I really w
Winamp is deadAnd this is the end of on era. I use this media player since I was a children. When I joined deviantART and become active on it I even made skins for it, I uploaded only one if I remember well:
This one is almost 6 years old (on November 26 it will be):
So I am sad about the news they stop this project. It was always part of my life, whenever I wanted to listen to music, a time before mp3 players and iPods I used this, and to be honest when I sit at my computer I will not use any other device to listen music. Because of winamp I never had the need to have anything else at home, I didn't have a CD player or any other hi-fi device. I so used ti mp3 files has winamp logo on it, in my mind that is the symbol of music...
I know these days there are lot of other alternative, I am sure there are many better than winamp, but this is so nostalgic for me and I just never need to check for other players. Whenever I got a new system / reinstalled one the first step was ins
Silence comes and stuff I madeSorry guys I will be a little low profile here on dA for some time, except if I do something random and fast as usual. I have some things to think through and I don't have the brainpower to update much here. There are also no photography projects are on the way and I really do not have any inspiration for new stuff now days (but it can happen any time, anyway).
But I can show some stuff I done:
After a Halloween party I worked on some stuff to turn my brain off. For example here is notInstagram http://nikhazy-dizajn.hu/notInstagram/ that I made as a practice of new technologies like HTML canvas. It isn't something big or worth mention on its own. It started out with a single image manipulation with one preset image and one filter. Then it figured I can play a lot with colors. Then I added new images to select. I created a GUI to make testing easier... then I added a drag and drop image area so I can show this stuff to people (think about it, with the p
FlashingSometimes I just got ideas so I do them in Flash. Sometimes I only upload flash for days.
The first one is a game. A basic game. All lights. Everybody knows it. Old as computers (well not that old, but old). But I wanted to do it since I started learning Flash. These days this is not even something I had to think how to make. Years ago it was too hard. But at least I got it out from my system. Also the Halloween skin makes it fun these days.
The other one is a small application that tries to show given user's icons on deviantART servers. It is an easy task, but had some tricky stuff to make the app work well. I really learned some new stuff about flash with this. I planning to update this app, so it can show more icons, but I still don't exactly get how deviantART's cache works with these images. So it can happen, it never will be updated. But I am experimenting and searching for solutions.
Have fun with these two and pre
Last weekendMe, ~MichiGasoline and ~Hell-master had an Assassin's Creed photoshoot at Buda Castle. It was really fun and not one picture born we like! First two is already up. More to come:
It was funny that people knew they were from Assassin's Creed. Children and some adults too was happy to see these cosplay.
MondoConI just forget to write here. I don't know why.... maybe because I am tired and sick etc. But here I am now!
I had a long weekend. Two days of MondoCon.
Saturday went silently. I didn't make too many photos but there are some to work with. I had a great time with friends though, even in my tired as hell state. I met lot of my friends there and I had opportunity to spend time and talk with all of them, and that is rare. I checked out Kalink Kalózok's performance rehearsal. It was fun to watch and photograph them. Then I leave to sleep early to survive Sunday.
Sunday was a little different. The convention felt empty. It seems it is too much for people. At the morning we were just sitting around, doing nothing. Then we watched the performances! Kalin Kalózok won! It was great. From then it was all about photos. Lot of them. First I photographed the team:
About images I upload these daysFirst of all let me talk about this photo:
This is an image from 2012 February. Back then I couldn't do anything with it, nor ~Klauka1990 wanted me to post it. It had some versions I edited but non of us liked it, so we forget about it. As I started to search for older images in my folders (and delete lot of trash) I found this again and I knew I want to edit it properly. So this is the outcome. She let me to upload it this time.
Last weekend I attended to Cosplayer Expo 2. It is a small Hungarian convention. It was a little boring for me at times (as I didn't have a ticket to go in), but it worth for the photos and friends and sight of awesome cosplayers (not in particular order). I didn't made lot of photos, but I am happy with the ones I created. Also I researching new editing techniques with these. I feel I am on the right track, but I have to learn much more.
New app and free scripthttp://compareimages.nikhazy-dizajn.hu/
This little app / PHP Class capable of comparing two images. It gives a number from 0 (means they are the same) to 64 (they are perfectly different). Numbers bigger than 10 means they are most likely not the same. The fun part of it it can tell if an image and its resized or colored versions are the same image or not. I created this site for it, to make it easier to understand. You can click on the images to feed the fields under the examples, or you can feed it with any png or jpg image urls from all around the web. Also there is the code for you if you want to grab it.

Why many artists suck at marketingWell. I can at least say that the average artist's mentality towards marketing never ceases to amaze me.
Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S

3D Camera TrackingToday I learned this. Camera tracking. Basically it is a very simple thing. I select points on the first frame of the video, Blender tries to track those points. After that it sets up a 3D environment for the video. Aaaand it is really good in tracking.
This is my first attempt:
As you can see I used my Sburb logo for this little test. The reason for that it is much better than the Blender monkey head. The low poly count helps me to render it fast. I am really happy with this, one of my best "first attempts".
Keep in Touch!
