orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe
that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

Pytho Draco Design Contest - WINNERSIT FINALLY HAPPENED! I picked a winner!Pytho Draco Design Contest - WINNERS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A funny personality to go along with a fantastic color scheme. I've been enamored with Heston since he was first entered. I enjoy his colors and the way his reference sheet was laid out. Aledles is the first place winner.
I was waiting for someone to do a black/white design. And this one is fantastic with the large patch of white on the shoulder. I like how the mane is striped as well and Singe has purple eyes. Very nice! Soulphur is the winner of second place.
Look at this chubster! I definitely like a round character. Bango is adorable and I like his gradients. chirpeax is also the winner of second place.

I'm currently dog sitting a litter of six puppies and they're running me a little ragged! As soon as I get a chance to get the results typed up, I'll be posting them! C:
Yep, I'm holding another character contest! C:
This time there's a fun theme to play with;
(Or lovey dovey stuff in general really)
I'm looking for a character based on the lovely holiday, and because I've tried a few times to create one myself (with no luck) I decided to see what other artist could come up with C:
- I must have all rights to the character that wins (But odds are I'll never resell)
- No stealing/whining/ect
- I reserve the right to end this without a winner. I hope not to though xD
- You can enter as many times as you want
- Collabs are fine~
What I'm looking for;
Breed wise- I love furry things like collies, AUSSIES, oooh and malamutes or huskies are neat<3 So anything along those
Happy holidays from deviantART!Happy holidays from deviantART!2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art

ant you guys to design me a really cute eel crossed with a dog character
I want it to be a boy and I want the colors to be semi-natural, like from real types of eels
or real dog patterns. You can add un-natural color accents but I don't usually like bright neon or ugly un-natural color pallettes.

Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.
Change is not something that we take lightly, because it affects our collective identity. It was important for us to define who we are and what we’re made of at our core before we changed anything. We all have our own understanding of what that means, but the process of getting that core story down on paper took almost a year.
The result is “Bleed and Breed Art.” This is our center of gravity and our reason for getting out of bed in the morning.
It is the guide and the justification for everything, including our business partnerships, the development of the new app and the design of our new ide

Post your own species to share/advertise to me and other passer-byers of this journal. I am always looking to find new species to like. Popularity isn't anything to me as long as I love the character(s) and species. I have odd tastes in characters!

★ store your characters and their art for free
no, you don't have to pay to use TH, or the majority of its features. everything you could need is free, but there are premium features; the premium features just give you options for stuff like mass tagging etc, but you're still able to tag etc without it! not having a premium account doesn't prevent you from accessing most things as far as I know
★ prevent theft
the thing I like about TH the most is that if you put a design you made on there, you can transfer the character, with all the art, profiles, etc to another person, but you remain the designer, and it very clearly shows

I added an extra month to the deadline as a lot of people have been requesting it.
Furthermore I may be lowering the prizes to entice more competitors. Offering $300 for a prize was supposed to draw out high quality art from some bigger names, however it was pointed out that those people would probably rather draw a few commissions and definitely be paid for it, that risk spending a long time on a work that might not win.
This however is a maybe. And not set in stone just yet.
Everything else in this journal remains the same so if you've read it already, there's no need to keep going ^w
