Horse Power In Art History
Power & Grace In Motion
Above and beyond that, a unique aesthetic beauty unmatched by any other living creature in creation. There is the reality of the horse and there is the idea of the horse. Combined in a single construct, a special art has existed to celebrate the horse since the first human artists used the stone walls of their cave dwellings as the first canvases. Watching Werner Herzog’s 2010 documentary on the Chauvet Caves in southern France, Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010), gives one a sense of the powerful bond of human and horse, of the capture of early humanit

FAQHow did you get started?FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've always sculpted as a hobby and am completely self taught. In April of 2010 I decided I wanted to finally try my hand at selling my work. I started posting things on etsy and DA and veeery slowly people started noticing. My first couple of years relied heavily on commission work.
How are you so popular? I just started making sculptures too but nobody notices or buys them?
It took well over two years before I was actually getting fulltime work with decent pay. It took a TON of hard work. I sold my work for far less than I should have, because I needed customers. I also did a few shows, to get some exposure by handing out business cards. I made things as often as I could, posted often, and made sure it was very clear I was open for commissions. I posted links on everything. You have to make it easy for people to find the info they need! I posted mainly on etsy and DA, then made a fanpage on facebook very late in the game. Probably sh

It's a character that you can beat up, abuse, draw gore of, because that's their purpose. It's for venting (or when you want to draw gore lmao, i just like sick-looking ponies)
THEY CAN HAVE RASHES, DRIPPING NOSES/MOUTHS,RABIES,FAMINE-LIKE CHARACTERISTICS,BANDAGES, MUTATIONS SUCH AS THREE LEGS OR TINY ASS PEGASUS WINGS (which are my sick-sona's thing, and while i dont copyright those, it'd be appreciated if you didn't use that trait uvu) OR ANYTHING ELSE GROSS/WEIRD.

Movie Opinion Time: FrozenI know how many of you have seen Frozen and like it. I like it from an animator and modelers point of view but aside from that I have come to very much dislike this movie. I saw this movie for the second time this weekend and I hated so much because of the music. Now scream holler whatever you guys want to do at me but these are my opinions. And sorry that this is long.Movie Opinion Time: Frozen1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I will start off with the music. Yes the music is catchy, too catchy in fact. Ever since the movie came out people around me have been unable to stop singing "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" and "Let It Go". This has driven me into insanity, and along with the annoyances I found that the music isn't really that good. A bit too broadway for me sorry too say. Also as I search youtube for other songs I've come across countless covers and I'm sorry to say the music has gotten old so very fast.
The plot although "based" on the "snow queen" was well not in my taste. I know that the animator wanted to show family and be the b

New llama levels and Badge Pages! Fellow llama herders!New llama levels and Badge Pages!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may have noticed that today is a momentous day in the field of llamas. Due to their unexpected popularity, we have decided to tweak the llama levels a bit, in order to maximize fun and fairness for every deviant around -- from llama aficionados to those who simply dabble in llamas from time to time.
What llamas? Glad you asked!
Behold, the new breakdown of llamas! (If you dislike spoilers and wish to achieve the levels by pure surprise, then keep scrolling.)
= 1 (Llama)
= 10 (Super Llama)
= 50 (Albino Llama)
= 100 (Super Albino Llama)
= 500 (Ninja Llama)
= 1,000 (Fancy Llama)
= 2,500 (King Llama)
= 5,000 (Spartan Llama)
= 7,500 (Wizard Llama)
= 10,000 (Golden Llama)
There you have it! So many awesome reasons to stay connected to the community and to search out new and undiscovered deviants. Share the wealth, my friends. Share it.

Birth of a New Category or Beginning of the End of Categories?
:icontechgnotic: by techgnotic
Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

Holiday Card Project 2013Holiday Card Project 20132 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.
