Art Contest: I Wish I Was KryptonianCalling all artists!Art Contest: I Wish I Was Kryptonian10 months ago in Personal More Like This
We'd like to announce a new and exciting project that our website, SuperWomenMania.com, is currently sponsoring. In an effort to try and provide new and original content to our site followers, we are conducting a themed art contest with CASH PRIZES to the top entries based on a vote from our users.
The art contest will be based on the theme of "I Wish I Was Kryptonian" in which the entries will portray a non-powered female character from comics or animation acquiring, demonstrating, or showing off powers akin to Superman (or Supergirl!). For example, Mary Jane Watson now exhibiting superstrength or Jasmine from Aladin stopping an army by blowing a sandstorm with her superbreath or Lois Lane shrugging off bullets with her newfound invulnerability. Basically, the sky's the limit with the creative options and characters you have available.
Pique your interest? Well, if the subject matter isn't fun enough already, we'

for those wonderingi have been very inactive here for the past two-three years, and the reason was.. well.. a lot has happened in my life since then.for those wondering9 months ago in Personal More Like This
situation in my family was very stressful back then. my two grandmas were fighting illness which got progressively worse, and ended in two deaths in the span of 6 months.
this crushed me and i felt depressed for the longest time and didn't know what to do with my life. i would sleep a lot and felt like there is no reason for me to get up. i found no pleasure in drawing, everything seemed pointless.
i would draw pictures here but clearly there was not much promise for any sort of career, and honestly i didn't even know what to do with my skills. sure i took a few jobs here and there but i felt like i was standing in place.
and as depression often likes to distort the views of your own capabilities and passions,so i too sat there thinking.. why would anybody even hire me as an artist in the first place.. clearly my husband is all the world ever needs. de

My favorite piece overall. How they done this was so unique. Shows Cint's cute and yandere in a gif format. This piece is wonderfully done in concept and visuals. I would give you a higher prize amount if I could! ;A;
When I saw this, I was amazed how by how well the artist drew Rose's Problem. A very great job in my opinion!
The gothic dress and the hint of strawberry do nice to show the character's likes.

For those of you who say:"I can't do great works of art because all I have is MS Paint"For those of you who say:1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's NOT the program, it's the artist using the program.
EDIT: I should probably mention this was 50+ hours or work for this. So don't be discouraged and think this person actually just sat down and did this in like 5 minutes, haha! And yes, it IS the newer version of MS Paint (Windows 7 and higher maybe? I don't know if Windows 8 has MS Paint or not).

So, on the off-chance deviantART will shut down tomorrow, it'd be cool of you to download my gallery now and put it in your share folder. Plus, it's much nicer to browse through pictures when they're already downloaded to your computer.
Instructions: (these are for my gallery, but obviously you can use it for anything on deviantART)
1. Download the latest version of deviantART Favorites Downloader: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dafavdownloader/files/ (you'd need to have JRE installed if you don't already have it: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads )
2. Open the program, go to Preferences > Options
3. Type in Username: UndefinedError
4. Mark "Gallery"
5. In Download location put: C:\deviantART\%artist%\%title%.%ext% (replace "C:\deviantART" with your desired folder)
6. Click the "Proxy" or "Advanced" tab so you'll get an error. Ignore it and return to General tab. Now mark "Use same locat

Gimp is a free photo editing software that you can download at gimp.org. You can use it for a lot of different things like photo manipulations, drawing, pixel art, etc. Today though, we will be covering the topic of animation!
Note that this tutorial will only show the basics of Gimp animation. How to make the frames, how to save it and the such. So let's get started!
Start by making the subject. I just used a random black ball, but the subject can be as simple or as complex as you want, depending on what you're making. Make sure you switch over to the layers tab.
Tip: If you do not already have the layers tab there by default, go to any of the tabs and press that little arrow that the green arrow is pointing at. After you click tab press: Add tab> Layers. After that, the layer tab like in the picture should show up.

Fast lane to becoming a better artist.I often get this very question: How did you get this good this fast?Fast lane to becoming a better artist.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now as I consider myself not being as good as people tell me, even struggling quite often with being an artist in general.
I do know how to get better and how to reach it fast. I'm still growing as I go and it's the main thing that keeps me going.
You need to get into the right mindset and the rest will follow. With the rest I mean:
3. Positive energy.
4. The NEED to draw.
Seeing growth in your work gives you the courage to work harder. You know that feeling when you're just about done with an image
and feel like this image is better than your last one, that great feeling. Use it!
Do studies! Lots of them!! Make film shot studies, live object studies, master-painting studies. They will teach you a lot about composition, lighting, colors, shapes storytelling etc.
You will hardly notice that you are learning thing

Tamagoland is the name of Daikon's blog ( some art NSFW ) and eBay store. This stuff is amazing, and when Daikon does venture into more muscular artwork it's usually spectacular. A batch of stuff was just released into the eBay store which I heartily recommend you bid on. I've posted about Daikon before, but I'll keep repeating it for those that don't know. The picture above comes from a batch of commissions that he mentions in the blog. Daikon's occasionally open for commissions through the eBay store.
Here are some of the items available for bid currently. You've only got 12 hours left at the time of this writing:

If you are ever wondering why your work is declined, it is only because you submitted it to the wrong folder. So I hope you will take your time to submit them in the appropriate folder in the future.
The following are the group submission rules:
