(I decided to launch the contest eight days ahead of schedule since the positive results on my recent polls asked for them.)

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May
End Date: Monday
April 1/50 for 150 Raffle!BULLETIN:April 1/50 for 150 Raffle!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As a way to kick off April's coloring contest, we are once again hosting the 1/50 for 150 Raffle! All you have to do is +Fav this journal, which puts you in a random drawing to win an easy 150 dA points! Pretty easy, huh? So easy and effortless, you'll probably wake up in a few days having completely forgotten, and wondering just who this color-me-club fellow is that's throwing random dA points at you.
There will be a winner added for each extra 50 +Fav's this journal receives. So you have, at minimum, a one in fifty shot at winning! However, the winner cap will be at 500 +Fav's, so get yourself in quickly to be in the first 500 before the cap is reached!
Of course, this whole raffle thing is just a big ol' ruse to stir up attention to an even bigger event. Yep, already mentioned it earlier, but colorists unite(!) we're also kicking off our next coloring contest!

Don Shanks (Michael Myers #5)- he wrote, "To Emilie. Don Shanks Michael Myers" then I got a picture with him. He picked me up & choked me! And he's like, "Try to look scared!" but I couldn't stop smiling. After the pic he carried me off & said, "I'm keeping her!" he's so strong! And he's like, 62!!
Gunnar Hanson (Leatherface)- he wrote, "Emilie- you're next! Gunnar Hanson" then when I got a picture with him he said, "Don't be scared!" & I said, "I'm not!" now I have an idea of what Tommy sounds like & he has brown eyes!!!!
Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger)- he wrote, "For Emilie! Sweet Dreams! Robert Englund" & for my picture, he grabbed the hood string on my hoodie, wrapped it round my finger & made his awesome face! I waited 1 & a half hour for him!!!! When I got up there, he said, "Emilie!! I saw you in the audience! You look like 1 of my Nightmare Brats!" I just couldn't stop smiling!! he's SO funny!!

Recently, people like J-u-d-a-s have been hacked, having their accounts deactivated. Fortunately, J-u-d-a-s was able to regain control of his account.
I will be telling you how to avoid the same thing happening to you.
First of all, I'd like to say that the hackers are very smart and deceitful. They have made a login page very similar to deviantART's, but with this tutorial, you will be able to see the difference between the two and know whether you really need to log in or if it's a scam.

Architecture Photography: Introduction
Welcome to the projecteducate Architecture Photography Week!
Boy oh boy! I've been preparing this for a few weeks now so I gathered quite a few articles for you guys! To begin with, I will introduce you to the Architecture Photography Gallery on deviantART with all its sub-categories. Then we'll move on to the basics in Architecture Photography in order to help you take successful photographs. We will also see some of the trends around the Gallery with inspiring examples, just to give you a taste of what you can do and encourage you to give it a try as well!
Along with all these articles, I've also prepared interviews with remarkable architecture photographers within the community, but also outside deviantART! I hope you'll enjoy to get to know these people better.
There is an Architecture Photography Critique Event plan

For those of you wondering what SOPA/PIPA are, take a look at this video http://fightforthefuture.org/pipa/
As a protest of #SOPA and #PIPA (The Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act) two pieces of legislation that are up for debate once again on January 18, 2012, I will be blacked out from all my websites, deviantART included. What does this mean?
"On January 18, between 8am and 8pm EST (or 13:00 and 01:00 UTC), Reddit will be blacking out their website in protest of SOPA and PROTECT IP.

Vegan beautyChocolate Bubble BathVegan beauty3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1/3 cup unsweetened soy milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup unscented liquid bubble bath
Heat (but do not boil) the soy milk and cocoa powder and stir until blended. Let cool.
Add the bubble bath and stir.
Pour the entire batch into the tub. Enjoy!
Anti-Zit Face Mask
1 Tbsp. cruelty-free baking soda
1-2 Tbsp. filtered water
Mix the baking soda and water together until you've got a paste.
Apply to your face and leave on for about 20 minutes.
Rinse and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.
1 aspirin tablet (contains salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores)
Crush the aspirin with the back of a spoon and add just enough water to form a paste. Apply to the blemishes and let sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing.
Another spot treatment trick is to take a dab of cruelty-free toothpaste (the white paste kind, not the gel), and apply it to blemishes. Leave on overnight. This will dry out zits quickly.

THE ODDLY SPECIFIC FETISH ART CONTEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hello you sick denizens of the Interwebz. I am sure you've run into it; yes, the strange anatomy, the awkward MSpaint quality color and lines, the oddly specific fetish art. What started off as an erotic fantasy took a turn for the wtf in the hands of a less-then talented aspiring furfag ready to depict the exact kink that cranks their lever. My challenge for you, my pretties, is to recreate the unease, the distaste, the unintentionally hilarious qualities our resident Sonic Fans amateur fetish artists manage to create on a daily basis. Basically, I want you to find a fetish, an oddly specific one (like, oh, say, a fetish for bald girls wearing onsies and farting in cakes with strawberries.)THE ODDLY SPECIFIC FETISH ART CONTEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Well, my plan worked out.
And, my God, I have never cried so much at a movie in my WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE.
It was so sad and romantic with little bits of humor, and I couldn't help but feel for Holly... Not like anything remotely like that has ever happened to me before, but, you know what I mean. I was feeling major sympathy.
That damn movie went from being humorous and making me giggle, to tearing my heart to shreds and ripping it out of my chest.
And I enjoyed every moment of it.
But, I didn't like William. -_- He seemed like he was suppose to be replacing Gerry or something.
ANYWAY, NOW MY EYES ARE ALL SWOLLEN FROM CRYING AND I FE
