Fantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 27I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsFantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 272 years ago in Art Features More Like This
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.As an artist, you probably will be approached by various people over time. Some may be looking for commissions, others will most likely be looking for free art.Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here are some handy resources concerning the "free art"-people. First of all, there's this handy flowchart called "Should I Work For Free?.
If they say they'll pay you with:
-Eventual cut of the profit when profits are made
-No pay, since artists "shouldn't be sell-outs, but draw for fun"
Then run for the hills and get away as fast as you can.
Because if it's for a game, a comic or another for-profit project, the most normal response should be "Fuck you. Pay me." (worded politer, though that goes without saying).
Spec-work? -- Fuck you. Pay me.
"We don't have the budget for 20 sprite-sheets, but we'll sell this game and your name will be in the credits!" -- Fuck you. Pay me.

Top 7 Most Inane Theist Arguments1)The concept that because "stuff" exists that some guy had to shit it out of nonexistence.Top 7 Most Inane Theist Arguments8 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a self-defeating existentialism that only results in an infiinite degradation, ladders on top of ladders and pits within pits. Stuff exists, okay, people. You know why it does? Because it fucking can. You want proof? Take your hand,raise it to approximately eye level, and slap yourself. I facepalm therefor I am.
For God to exist "stuff" automatically preceded him: unless you're telling me God isn't made of anything, which seems wildly unlikely, I think, to anyone with enough gray matter to spread over a cracker.
2)The concept that religion dictates morality.
It patently does not. God is morality's bitch: if not, then why did there need to a resurrection? Why did Jesus have to die? Because there were universal truths of justice and mercy that christians must reason demanded God to go through the pageantry of torturing and murdering his favorite kid. If this i

I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

Fast Food Art?Hello people of dA!Fast Food Art?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the last weeks I'm getting the impression that there are many people out there that can easily be compared to fast food customers...
Finding many nice pictures in a few seconds, FAVING IT ALL, so that one can look it up later, when one has the time... (What maybe will never happen ) YES, I would call it "fast food art". It's the same issue like in music. People having thousands of music files on their gear, listening to just what their mood fits best at that time, spending no time to think or even really LISTEN to the music. And that's the point I am trying to make here;
We should not consume art like it was fast food or any MP3-file on our iphone. It's really not about having lots of favourites. What counts must be quality, not quantity. And I mean, is there any artist out there that does NOT feel sad if his or her art is faved for about a hundred times but having just a few people who leave at least a comment like "I like it!" ?

Vegan beautyChocolate Bubble BathVegan beauty4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1/3 cup unsweetened soy milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup unscented liquid bubble bath
Heat (but do not boil) the soy milk and cocoa powder and stir until blended. Let cool.
Add the bubble bath and stir.
Pour the entire batch into the tub. Enjoy!
Anti-Zit Face Mask
1 Tbsp. cruelty-free baking soda
1-2 Tbsp. filtered water
Mix the baking soda and water together until you've got a paste.
Apply to your face and leave on for about 20 minutes.
Rinse and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.
1 aspirin tablet (contains salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores)
Crush the aspirin with the back of a spoon and add just enough water to form a paste. Apply to the blemishes and let sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing.
Another spot treatment trick is to take a dab of cruelty-free toothpaste (the white paste kind, not the gel), and apply it to blemishes. Leave on overnight. This will dry out zits quickly.
