New Sta.sh Writer Toolbar
Formatting in Sta.sh Writer just got easier! Check out the brand new Writer toolbar, which includes new functionality such as adding lists, links, and text alignment! Though these formatting styles worked in the previous version of Writer, they could only be used if you manually typed in the HTML or copy and pasted from another application.
Oh, and we have an exciting new feature coming next week!
It's always the Artist.What is talent? Many people don't have the slightest clue. They just assume it's what makes your art good.It's always the Artist.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
But what if your art is good (by that I mean above the average) until you are about 10 years old, and then you never draw again?
If you don't execute, practise and put all of your blood, sweat and passion into your Art, you will not get better at it.
"Talent" is not being good at something. Talent is the ability to keep going and to improve.
So why do so many people blame someone's artistic abilities on their art supplies, school education, programs, tablets and "talent"?
I have no clue. All of these amazing artists, even they have started drawing using a pebble on the sidewalk's asphalt. They are awesome because they love what they do, not because they own the newest and most pricy art supplies. Honestly, you should never blame the quality of one's art on the tools they use to create it. I have seen artwork created in MS Paint that was just as great as someone else's work made in

What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Holiday Card Project 2012Holiday Card Project 20123 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, CA 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
