So You Want to CritiqueHere is a two-fold guide for deviants wishing to receive critique as well as deviants who want to give constructive critiques:So You Want to Critique6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
A Note to Non-subscribers
You're allowed to give and receive critique, too! The system for subscribers that dA has put in place is flashy, sure, but it doesn't alter the content of a quality critique. Comments have worked just fine for many years. I see no reason why you should stop using the tried and trusted system just because something new has come along. Now, onto the article!
Make Sure the Feeling's Mutual
Some people don't give critiques. Some people don't want critiques. That's okay. Being a member of dA does not precondition you to the critique-crowd.
However, if you do want to be a critique-groupie, make sure the artist you're giving critique to actually wants it. If the critique option is not enabled, or there's no request for critique in the comments, chances are critique is unwanted. If there's something you really, really want

There is a magical moment
That happens once in a lifetime
Like two stars colliding in the sky
You're singing a solo song
Then somebody comes along
And that magic moment belongs to you and I
Cause all I need is you
For everything I am and everything I do
Yes all I need is you
Your smile is all it takes
To make my dreams come true
I have heard all things are possible
The moment we met I knew
Ill have everything I need
Now that all I need is you
Marina : Yes, all I need is you
The world that's in your eyes
Is where my dreams come true?
Both: Yes all I need is you
Marina: Oh, could you be the one
My life's been leading to?
Handy : Have I found what Ive been searching for?
Both: A love that's designed for two
Marina: I'll have everything I need

It's been a while since I wrote one of these guides and, since V1.0 and V1.5 proved to be so popular, I feel it is about time I update my guide to getting noticed on deviantART.
So, you want to get noticed on deviantART but you're not sure where to start? You've come to the right place; pull out your note pad and pen, you'll need them.
Before beginning to read this article, ask yourself why you want to get noticed on deviantART. Do you want to play more of an active role in the community or do you want to raise attention to your commissions and make a living? Do you want to get noticed to meet more deviants, or do you want to be able to say you are "popular"?

How to get famous through UTAUThis is a text about the UTAU fandom.. and basically how to get famous with UTAU.How to get famous through UTAU5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
I'm writing this because I'm tired of people neglecting VERY good UTAUs just because they don't have the greatest art in the world.
I'm also writing this because I think we need to pay attention to all the UTAU users, and not just the ones who happen to draw well. When you see someone struggling with UTAU, don't just walk away because of their artwork - be nice and help them. We're a big family here!
So lately there's been a lot of new UTAUs popping up, and I can't not notice that people have been popping up as "new, famous" users as well. The problem for me is.. the UTAUs with the greatest artwork become famous, whilst the UTAUs with "regular" art or art that "does not look as good" are being neglected! I really don't think that's fair.
If we all start out with our UTAUs, some piece of artwork and then a song which we upload to YouTube, then why aren't we all famous? A lot of people like UTAUs
Dipper Pines x Bill Cipher: PervertedIf Dipper was forced to make a list of annoying people right now, his first one will be Bill. Really, he's been bugging him since last week!Dipper Pines x Bill Cipher: Perverted5 months ago in Romance More Like This
There was non stop teasing and even Bill was giving him perverted comments.
Dipper won't deny the fact that he kinda liked Bill, and it feels so worse that Bill knows his "small" crush on him.
Dipper covered his face with his hands, his face exploding a bright red as he thought about Bill. His smug and annoying grin, his daring and evil personality, his cute, wavy, soft...fabulous...blonde hair...
--Dipper shook his head, eyebrows furrowing. "N-No! I do not like him!" He kept denying, but the fact that he fancies Bill keeps coming back to him.
"Heeeey, Pine tree~" a familiar voice echoed. Speak of the devil. Literally.
Dipper huffed, looking away, the blush obvious on his face.
"Aw, were you thinking about me? That's awful sweet of you!" Bill laughed, hanging upside down while floating. "I wasn't! Leave me alone!" Dipper yelled, embarrassed.

Dipper mumbled something and shifted on his bed, evoking minuscule, defiant creaks that echoed in the emptiness of the room. His blankets were everywhere; on the floor, about to fall on the floor, strewn all over his bed. They were everywhere but on his body. He pulled one over his head and tried to ignore the dream demon downstairs that was calling him.
The beckoning had stopped and Dipper gave a small smile before burrowing deeper into his mess of blankets, happy for silence to settle over the Shack once again. Then a sound of heavy footsteps started and got louder and louder as Bill, Dipper presumed, walked up the steps to his room. Dipper was too tired to prepare himself for the demon's antics and just kept his eyes shut. He had been up late last night in order to work on the first draft of an article he was writing for the Gravity Falls local newspaper.
Then the door slammed open, as part of Bill

"What's wrong, Pine Tree?" Bill asked, the same comical edge to his voice. He suddenly turned into a sleek, one-eyed golden cat. He walked over to Dipper, rubbing his tail across the boy's face. Dipper blushed and pushed him off the bed.
"That! Stop shapeshifting into different things. It's weird."
Bill sighed and transformed back into a triangle. "You seem to hate my demon form, and almost any other form I take for that matter. You gotta give me a little to work with here, kid!"
"Why can't you just leave me alone?" Dipper whined, crawling under the sheets of his bed and hiding himself from the watchful eye of the demon.
"Since when do I ever just 'leave people alone'?" A thought must have crossed his mind, because Bill shot up and raced out the door. "Change of plans, Pine Tree. I know exactly how t

Moving on.It just feels so wrong, just talkin to other boysMoving on.7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Even if we broke up, it´s not like I had a choice
Sometimes I kind of miss you, and I really can´t let go
I´ll do my best and get over it, no matter what I know
All my friends keep telling me, I´ll feel better when you´re gone
But how can I forget how I felt, when it´s in every song
A few months have already passed, not so long ´til I´ll be fine
Just wish that it didn´t feel like this, does wounds really heal in time?
I know I only hurt myself, and I do so as seconds pass
But it didn´t feel real, like instead of being serious you´d laugh
I´m sorry for what I´ve done to you, I´m sorry for my misstakes
We haven´t talked for months, guess that´s good for both our sakes
I´m trying to get over you, but I feel so cheap sometimes
When I flirt with other boys, it feels like you´re hearing my lines
I hate the feeling you put me in, I love you but I hate you

Tips cómo ser un mejor artista
No, no he venido a decirte como ganar más experiencia en tus habilidades artísticas u obtener tu propio estilo. Vengo a hablar de cómo ser un mejor artista en tu mente, eso significa cuando se es un gran artista incluso mas allá del papel. Carácter y sabiduría
En lo que te conviertas al final es tu camino o responsabilidad, (la cosa es que depende de ti...)
Esta es mi opinión, no tienes porqué estar de acuerdo, espero que lo estés.
1.- Trata de tener un sentido de calidad y estética primero, trata de tener una ética de trabajo o disciplina
2.- La fama y popularidad no hacen a un buen artista y no es un indicador de crear "buen arte". Ignora Internet y a los besatraseros
3.- La arrogancia no es un método para mejorar tus habilidades artísticas
4.- La intolerancia a otros métodos artísticos te vuelven cerra
