Other Resources #Wonderbook
I try not to promote resources you have to pay to access on OpGuides. I am not paid to say this. I bought my own copy on a whim. This book is pure gold. It’s about the written word, but will help any artist just as much. It’s probably the most beautiful, lovingly hand crafted book I have ever read. It’s full of character and art and beauty and words of wisdom that will make you think about what it means to be an Artist.

Events that can help you with art #
Filmulator accepts raw files from cameras and simulates the development of film as if exposed to the same light as the camera’s sensor. This brings about several benefits:
- Large bright regions become darker, compressing the output dynamic range.
- Small bright regions make their surroundings darker, enhancing local contrast.
- In bright regions, saturation is enhanced, helping retain color in bright skies, brighter skin tones, and sunsets.
- In extremely saturated regions, the brightness is attenuated, helping retain detail e.g. in flowers.
