I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma
How I Broke into Concept ArtSorry I've been away, everyone. Things are getting progressively busier and busier, but it's all good because I'm happily employed at Riot Games as an associate concept artist! I'm living with my friend in fumy downtown Los Angeles trying to find a place to live in sunny Santa Monica, where my beloved studio is.How I Broke into Concept Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Consider this a rough step-by-step tutorial of how to break into the industry based on my experience, the mistakes I made and the things I learned along the way - while they are fresh in my mind. Anyone listening to my story should know that since it already happened, by repeating the same process you won't be able to get the same results. You will need to work harder, because I just took your spot.
Now, the big dogs out there will have much more information about the industry, how it works and what they like to see. I'm simply attempting to sum up how I would approach it if I had 5 years to do it over.
Don't go to college. I make less in a year than my tuition was for

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

Prohibitionstuck - Announcement -Prohibitionstuck is a AU Homestuck story featuring Rose Lalonde and Kanaya Maryam as the main protagonist, based on this pictureProhibitionstuck - Announcement -10 months ago in Personal More Like This
During the Prohibition era, in a world where trolls and humans live together, alcohol or any intoxicating beverages are prohibited. It applies then to humans AND troll beverages. In this dark area, a lot people and especially gangsters try to survive by starting illegal bars. One bar knows a huge succes, and welcomes humans as well as trolls. The bar is called Skaia and is managed by the human "gangsters", Strider-Lalonde family and their friends Harley-Egbert-English-Crocker family. Their group is neither a big nor a powerful one, but they are well protected by the Mayor, the Chief of police of the city and the head of a mail company.
However, one gangster, called Calliborn English, wants their downfall. A long time ago, when it was the kids' parents who were controlling the b

Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way, no rigid process you must adhere to, no shoulds or shouldn'ts except those you designate for yourself. This is one of the fun parts of being an artist, really - have a heady good time with it.
- Be patient.
A design is something gradually arrived at. It takes time and iteration and revision. You'll throw a lot of stuff away, and you'll i

Thoughts About InspirationInspiration can be the fuel for passion in designing anything. When it is fresh in our minds, it helps drive our creations forward with such zeal that the mind and hands cannot seem to stop making the inexistent and impossible real. The feeling is undoubtedly great to any creative mind. It can be found almost anywhere in any occasion when the subject in question is put into a context relative to the creative goal. One could eavesdrop on a conversation at a coffee shop to create an interesting piece of literature that could change the lives of millions. One could take a feeling from an engrossing sci-fi movie and to research, observe, and create exotic vehicles that may drive future designs of the space program. When inspiration is used, it brings the best out of human ingenuity.Thoughts About Inspiration7 months ago in Personal More Like This

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you

Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges.
