April 2012 Urban and Rural UpdateHello everybody and welcome to the April 2012 Urban & Rural update!April 2012 Urban and Rural Update3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In the Urban & Rural Update, I will be updating you about the happenings in the Urban & Rural Photography gallery on a monthly basis. This article will generally be posted on the last day of the month, or the first day of the new month. Although they are much like the Daily Deviation roundups I have been posting every month, with the monthly update articles, I also aim to inform you about happenings within the Urban & Rural Photography gallery. The articles are also cross-posted to the Urban-and-Rural group to ensure a wider audience is reached.
If you have any feedback, please send me a note, or otherwise contact me through the ways listed on the right side of my profile page! I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Suggester Says: The atmosphere is fantastic with the warmth it exudes, but also a taste of danger and darkness with the way we can't exactly define what is behind the glass, if anything. I like how it feels somewhat surreal in that sense. Who are you? by *jguridi

Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)This is not a rumor!Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was officially announced that there will be a BRAND NEW Sailormoon Anime in Summer 2013! The original Japanese VAs for Moon and Tuxy seem to be reprising their roles (based on the conversation in the event). We don't have much more detail, a letter from Naoko said she hopes we like the new series and she's happy to be making it. She said she's overwhelmed at the support the series still has and it makes her happy. She didn't think she could do something new but now she's happy she can bring them back!
They said the audience is intended to be the original fans of the show. It will be like a "powered up" of the original story, aimed at the good girls (and boys!) who grew up with the show. TOEI is doing it.
There was something in the announcement about it being released worldwide but we don't know the details. We do not know what this means as far as a possible English dub/sub. We don't yet know when/how this will reach a US market.

Could be little things,like a flower shot in the golden hour, an old
key with a dreamy atmosphere in the background. Or something
that reminds us of fairytales. Portraits, landscapes with a magical spirit etc...

5 ways to get into the creative zoneDear, deviantart fellow artists5 ways to get into the creative zone1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sometimes we tend to feel unmotivated and uninspired to do anything... but there are also those blissful moments of creativity, when inspiration strikes and time goes by unnoticed. Not getting distracted, going with the flow, so merged in the process, that there is no need to do anything else until the work gets done. But how to get in that mood more often..? Here are some ways/tips that helped me over the time.
1. Prepare your work space
Make the place you work as comfortable and useful as possible. Clean the desk from all the clutter, gather your tools in a most accessible way, organize in order to avoid mess. Set the according light, have some inspiring quotes, goals written around.
2. Avoid distractions
Turn off the internet. Or close all the tabs, you don’t need. Especially, social media sites. Don’t check the news/e-mail/mobile phone all the time. Get in the place where

Happy holidays everyone! I'll be doing a Grandma Thunderpants goodie bag giveaway for New Years. For Christmas, I decided to give a gift that keeps on giving!

This starter pack comes with:
- 12 pack of Sculpey III colors
- 1 pack of Premo Translucent
- A basic clay sculpting tool (the purple thing!)
- Set of findings (lobster clasp, eye/headpins, jump rings, earring hooks.)
- 5 feet of silver chain
- A set of 3 circle cutters (your set will be sealed in its original packaging... it hasn't arrived in the mail yet!)
- A mystery BONUS! What is it...!? You won't know until a winner is chosen! (but trust me... it's good.)
This is about a $30 value, and it can be your

Contest - A 'Fat' Female Superhero VOTINGHey guys, we're voting now, check out my front page for the latest poll.Contest - A 'Fat' Female Superhero VOTING3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

How to get feedback on dAWe all joined this site, more or less for this reason, to get feedback on our art. The whole point of submitting art online is for people to see it and hear what they think about it.How to get feedback on dA1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Now there are a lot of deviants out there who get little to no feedback and as a result ask the people who faved their art to comment or go to random people on dA and ask for them to look at their art or comment in the hopes that the person will be kind enough to return the favor.
A message to the people who do that, you're doing it all wrong.
Sure, if you ask 20 people who faved your drawing what they thought about it, you might get 1 or 2 answers, but in return, you'll be ignored by say 10 people and you'll annoy 8 people. I get these comments and i'm telling you, begging for feedback is not the way to go, if someone didn't comment when they fave, what makes you think forcing their hand is the right way to go?
A fav is a compliment, take it a it is. Not everyone has
PE Photomanip: Let there be LIGHT!Light in PhotomanipulationPE Photomanip: Let there be LIGHT!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Getting your light right when creating a photomanipulation sounds easy . . . until you sit down to try to do it! There are seemingly endless things to keep in mind: where the light source is, the intensity of the light, how pieces of your manipulation need to be composed so that they line up with the direction of the light in the piece, whether there could be multiple light sources, what color the light will be. . . .
And the goal for light in your manipulation is for the light to be consistent throughout so that it is telling a story. No pressure! It is not an overstatement to say that light will make or break your manipulation; I have declined many DD suggestions because of bad lighting.
Light can help you tell a story and is critical to your deviation. It adds emphasis, adds depth, contributes to realism, and draws the viewer's attention to where you want it to be

Music: A DedicationPASSION. DEDICATION. PURE RAW ENERGY.Music: A Dedication6 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Love your music?
Love your gigs?
Can't live without it?
This article is simply a strong dedication towards music and everything it brings to us.
I always look through articles, noticing that there are many tributes towards scapes, nature, macros, portraits and many others, but there's never really an article simply based around music.
I've been gathering a lot of music-related deviation throughout deviantART ever since I joined, and I thought it was time to create a deidcation towards it, especially after I shot my own series of photos titled 'Ode To Music', not to mention having a shirt with the words "WITHOUT MUSIC LIFE WOULD BE A MISTAKE" printed over the front of it.
I'd like to thank anyone and everyone who helped submit their own, or other artists' work into the news article.
This took me quite a while to fix up, so if I've left out
