10 Simple Tips for Getting Your Art Accepted QUICKIt's troublesome for all of us when we have to ask you questions and, require you to withdraw and resubmit your deviation for one reason or another. Well, this document is designed to help prevent that so we can all have a nicer day!10 Simple Tips for Getting Your Art Accepted QUICK3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. All Members:
- When you upload your art to dA, select the proper category. ex. When a member submits a drawing to our Digital Art folder, but we see that it's in dA's Traditional Art category, we will ALWAYS question that.
2. Digital and Traditional Artists:
- List the media/tools/programs and reference image links you used to create your art in your description. This is a practice of Pros, and it helps us to ascertain that your art is submitted to the proper folder.
- If your art is a photograph, and you did any editing besides tweaking, or BW/Sepia conversion then we will probably consider it a photo-manipulation. This includes selective de-coloration. Submit it to our Digital Art folder.

'Let The Light In (LTLI) is a new tutorial series from the group Good-Intention that will focus on the hows and whys of committing good deeds around the deviantART community.
The first edition of this series will focus on how to create an art feature in order to help fellow friends and artists gain some exposure for their work, regardless of the media. This is a fantastic way to brighten someone's day, and promote some positivity.
What Is An Art Feature?
An Art Feature is a journal (blog / article) that showcases deviations from one, or multiple artists. You may peruse the Art Feature Folder for some examples. Users choose to create art features for a number of reasons, from showcasing artwork they admire, to helping under-appreciated artists gain more views, to promoting art from their friends or watchers. No matter what the motivation, art features are a great way t

Alright, alright, settle down. While this isn't crazy serious, it's still an update worth note!
Throughout history, art and artists have challenged preconceived notions, pushed boundaries and taken on subjects often considered taboo. Art is alive and constantly changing, much like the community at deviantART is. The CEA Team believes that deviantART policy must grow, adapt and change, to allow artists to push boundaries and express themselves whenever legally and morally possible. Policy must remain flexible in order for something, which was initially ruled as an absolute, to bend and change in order to allow for artists and quality to shine through.
One example of this kind of challenge to policy is with FindChaos's Lesbians 101 series-- a quirky and o

I'm sure most of you have heard the news, but for those who haven't, Generation 6 of Pokemon has been announced! There will be two new games, Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, set to be released this October!
So far, the starters and the two main legendaries have been revealed, Xerneas & Yveltal. Which starter will you choose: Chespin (Grass), Fennekin (Fire) or Froakie (Water)?
Also, in light of this announcement, we will start taking submissions for official Generation 6 Pokemon (this means for the time being, only the three starters and the two legendaries that have been revealed. NO Fakemon!). For now, they will have to be housed in the Featured folder until we can figure out if we can ever add more folders to our gallery.
I hope everyone has a good week, and is looking forward to the new games! c:

We're not harming anyone. We're not forcing people to like what we like heck we could be jerks and hate on other ships like they're doing to us but we're not. We are being the better people here.
Sure you might not like our shipping but that is no excuse for you to be little us because of what we like. Now in celebration of Elsanna I am going to post some other people's opinions not really my own but these are the opinions I agree with.

MINDSHIP RP ORGANIZATIONSo here's what's going down.MINDSHIP RP ORGANIZATION3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We, as an rp group, are pretty freaking disorganized, so we are getting our butts in gear, and making this happen, basically.
We had a very large discussion about this on pchum this evening, but of course, not everyone was on because of timezones. So I'm recapping here.
We really need to be able to search up characters quickly because of the sheer amount of them we have aboard. We may have started out with 32, but as people kept adding in their OC's we're somewhere in the hundreds. It's difficult to keep track. Also we have a large amount of shenanigans that go on, that end up getting passed around word of mouth as people hear about it and beg for logs and/or explanations. It'd be nice to have a place to keep all of that instead of asking HS for logs all the time.
Thus we have a solution.

From the Ground UpI'm making my own Monster Manual. I'm kind of getting fed up with D&D monsters more and more as I read books on myth, legends and what not. I finally decided I would just make my own Monster Manual from the floor up, only it would be more accurate to the lore of the creature being displayed…generally. And what I mean when I say generally is that a lot of these creatures are form separate lore, cultures, and times, so to cohesively put them together in the same world you have to bend a little, not as much as D&D (they got ridiculous with it) but just a bit. For instance, I put Hydra under the species of Wyrm even though it's a creature born from a titan; but in order to have that I have to have Greek creation myth in my world and if I have that than what about non-Greek monsters and on and on, the snowball effect of it is apparent, as you can see. So this is why a Hydra is no longer the child of a titan and a species of Wyrm insteFrom the Ground Up4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Nigeria, in the last decade or so has seen thousands of people die because they were Muslim OR Christian. They are killing each other by the hundreds with guns, machetes, or whatever means available. Women and children slain in their homes because they were a different religion. What possible God sees this as OK? OH perhaps it's the god that commands his followers to kill thousands and thousands of people in the Bible. Seems like the same one to me.
There are property rights and what the government refers to as "indigeneship" in Nigeria. It means whoever was first to live on a particular parcel of land, has the rights to it. Add to this law of "indigeneship" the fact that Nigeria now produces a LOT of oil and you have the makings of a war. Ironically, the "democratic" government has embezzled four t

I realize that everyone is different, and this particular fascination might have evolved out of more or less deep subconscious
areas of your mind. But I will assume in most of you its pretty deep. In my case it has to do with so called

What I wanted to say... is: Don't be afraid of who you are... Always tell the truth about your likes (when somebody

you as a stronger person, because you are not afraid of rejection amongst your friends or a family. They may joke
around a bit, but then they'll realize it won't change anything and they'll stop. Both with family and friends it's the same

Fascinatingly, none other than our friend kajm interjected, apparently stalking my comment history on a regular basis, telling her I was just a troll and to delete and block me.
Despite the fact that he himself accepts evolutionary science, his obsessive, stalking hatred of me is more important to him than education. I guess that goes without saying for someone who will make up anything they can to convince innocent kids to deny how climate works at even its most basic level.
So, I'm going to finally just copy/paste what I said to her here, in the off chance that maybe it will actually help somebody.

There have been a few news articles to stoke my irritation over the last couple of months. First there was word that Thor of the Marvel universe was to become female, then there was a rumour James Bond was going to be recast with a black actor and now there are mumbles that the Spiderman who may/may not show up in the cinematic Marvel universe will be a black kid: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-31362800
Personally, I think all this crap is side-stepping the issue of diversity rather than addressing it. If the likes of Marvel were really serious about it, they’d invest time and capital creating new heroes who are a different gender/race from the get-go. Building up a new mythology for a female or black character would be so much str

Okay, I mentioned this once. Some of my ancestors came from Russia. They were Jewish immigrants running away from the Pogroms that stuck Jews in Ghettos, separating them from the rest of the "normal Russians". It was pretty much Imperial Russia telling my ancestors: "You do not belong here. You are different, and therefore you should be ashamed for being different."
And then, later on, they came with soldiers, burned our houses down, burned our temples down, and kicked us out of the country.
There weren't any concentration camps at the time...no that came later during Stalin's little reign.
But the message and the idea was still there. "Get out of our country, you filthy Jew Rat!"
Pogrom is a Russian word. It simply means: "to wreak havoc, to demolish violently"
And that is what they did to many Jews and proba

Liam Sharp was and is one of the most sought after comic artists in the business. After bursting on the scene by drawing the bestselling Marvel UK title of all time, Death Head II, he was back in America illustrating top line comics like Superman, Batman and Spiderman as well as special projects for people like Stan Winston. For anyone unfamiliar with his amazing work, his galleries can be found on deviantART. I recently got lost for an entire day perusing a single file of his Conan illustrations.
