Telling our stories through art featuresIf someone told you that you had to find the 5-7 pieces of art on dA that best represent you, could you do it?Telling our stories through art features2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What do your favorite works of art say about you? Have you ever thought about it?
I'm featuring 7 deviations that blow me away, that I turn to for my own inspiration. Each one tells a story to which I can relate. A piece of my own story is echoed in each image.
What's your story through art? Create a journal with 5-7 of your favorite deviations that best represent you, and link me!
I love rain. I love the way it washes away sorrow and leaves your soul open for the sunlight.
This image reminds me of me because of the feeling of pain, of being hit with a constant barrage of garbage in my life that I don't need or deserve. You can avoid a lot of it, but sometimes it comes up and strikes you on the chin, reminding you to pay your dues.
Beautiful dress, beautiful hair.

Due to the overwhelming response this initiative got, there will be a slight change in the rules:
- The journal will remain open for everyone to comment and request a critique until DEC. 9TH. as planned. Then the requests will be closed. (comments on the journal will be disabled)
- Then I'll gather and organize every comment for a more organized process and pass them to the rest of the team. Critiques then, will start to be given on Dec. 10th.
-Due the unexpected number of requests received I'LL ASK YOU TO BE PATIENT AND WAIT UP TO 1 TO 2 WEEKS MAX TO RECEIVE YOUR CRITIQUE. (starting on Dec. 10th)

Feedback Frenzy! (Comment Contest)
A group of very, very devious deviants at FeedbackFrenzy are hosting
a comment/critique contest as part of projecteducate: Feedback Week!
WHAT: "Feedback Frenzy" is a week-long game that ANYONE (yes, even YOU!) can play. The goals are (1) to step outside your comfort zone and practice giving feedback to others, even if not in your own genre, (2) to meet new deviants from across dA, and (3) to receive as much high-quality, usable feedback on your work as possible.
WHEN: July 2nd to July 8th (one full week)
WHERE: <i wytiwyg="1">
CONTEST! Help PleaseIt is time again to start setting up for the next contest. Please help to spread the word. If you know someone interested, or who might be, let them know about this upcoming event of awesomeness. Also, if you can help or if you know someone who can help to donate anything, points or otherwise, please let them know. Every 5 or 10 point donation counts. If every one who watched me donated just 1 point, I would get 1674 points! With that, added to my 881, I would have 2555 points, enough to give out a full year's worth of membership, or four three month memberships. So as you can see, even little donations help in numbers.CONTEST! Help Please3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Fantasy-NPC inaugurates a series of journals on the fantasy characters. This journal is dedicated to the druids. I know that maybe some character among those present in this collection may not be part of the class in which it was entered, but the classes are a way to divide more harmoniously all these beautiful illustrations.

CONTEST: Remember Me! (please fave this article!)Hello everyone!CONTEST: Remember Me! (please fave this article!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you probably just read, the PortraitClub :iconportraitclub: will be holding a contest! We have some fabulous prizes to win: features, points , and even some premium subscriptions ! For those of you interested please read on further for the contest's theme!
The theme for this contest will be "Remember Me". We leave it up to you, the artists, to decide what this phrase means to you! There are several different approaches you can take, but if you're stuck, here are a couple ideas you might consider:
-A portrait so outrageous or bizarre it cannot be forgotten
-A sentimental portrait of someone you'd like to be remembered
Now remeber, as we are the Portrait Club, the entries must be portraits! However, you can submit portraits of any medium (except literature)! Whether you're a photographer, a traditional artist, or a digital artist, we welcome you to submit to our contest! Please read on though for the rules!

Contest is over! Thank you everyone! :)So, the contest is over and last night I got a handful of last entries that managed to hit the "30 entries" mark - which means all three price packs are unlocked (although I'd have given them out anyway, to be honest )Contest is over! Thank you everyone! :)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm really impressed with the quality of your entries, naturally I had my favs along the way but now that all is said and done these favs have piled up and I have no clue how to pick only three out of all of them. I'll probably have a look at all of them again with a few friends and then announce the winning images tonight or tomorrow, so that I can give out the prices before I'm off to archery week in Hungary.
Thank you again everyone who has entered! In my opinion the contest was a great success and I'll probably host another one in summer - I hope you had as much fun painting and drawing and manipulating as I did receiving every single artwork
10 Things a Photomanip Newbie Should KnowHi all,10 Things a Photomanip Newbie Should Know3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I wanted to talk for a moment to our newbie photomanipulators or even older photomanipulators who are out of the fray. How are you? Welcome to the inner circle.
Here are some things that you (and all photomanipulators) need to know about dA and the photomanipulation community.
1. Stay in touch with the Photomanipulation CV (currently me, Aeirmid).
Watch me. No, that's not an ill-formed plea for pageviews, favorites, or watchers. Actually, I rarely even post art anymore. I am the Community Volunteer (CV) for photomanipulation, which means I regularly run contests, feature art, share news, post Daily Deviations (DDs), and do other things to support the community. It is in your best interest to watch my journal because I post every photomanipulation-related update there. This information is important to you so you can learn about upcoming events, changes in rules, new groups, and other news.
2. Watch :devcommunity
Watch ForeverWhat is this?Watch Forever5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I wanted to acknowledge some of the people whose work I have watched, well, forever, and share them with my own watchers. These are people I will always continue to watch just because they are amazing artists who are generous in spirit! Enjoy this little feature as I take you through my watch list.
# is for 3mmI
If you have not done so already, go visit this gallery. Like, now. 3mmI works exquisitely with textures and dark subject matter. His style is distinct and very inspiring.
A is for AlexandraVBach
Alex is a supportive friend and lover of the digital art community, and she is a brilliant artist who many aspire to emulate. With unique ideas and a glorious combination of fantasy and dark art, her style is all her own.
B is for BaxiaArt
This artist does brilliant things with light, creating a sense of emotion.
Hundreds of free art e-booksThis was originally written by David J.C. Briggs on the Conceptart.org forums. (The original post can be found here.) All credit goes to him for compiling this list, I'm just passing the word on.Hundreds of free art e-books2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
The Internet Archive is a massive digital library that stores all sorts of material in the public domain, from music and movies to images, webpages and nearly three million books. All of this is open-source and available to the general public free of charge. The books documented below cover all sorts of subjects from different eras, from anatomy to portraiture, fashion to architecture, from the works of Leonardo Da Vinci to the letters of Vincent van Gogh.
And this is only scratching the surface! If you head over to the Archive and search for whatever subjects catches your interest most you can find much, much more. Just select "Texts" in the search box at the top of the page.

The crowds have voted and the topic shall be:
But of course it’s not that easy. The twist is to find inspiration in the mythology of your native country or the country you live in now!
Even if you don’t find a personal connection I’d like you to see this as part of the challenge – find inspiration in what your country’s history has in store. And don't give me the "we have no mythology"-excuse, every country has mythology, legends, fairytales I'm sure you find lots of interesting stories if you do a little bit of research.
Now, that being said: If you know your family’s roots (I’m looking at you, US-folks) and would rather
