It is with great excitement that I have been able to hold a contest like this for the first time in years!
The hardest part was only being able to choose 3.
I would like to congratulate:
3rd Place - for their outstanding concept of Bones in a costume - :icondragontrap:
2nd Place - for their amazing effect and almost horror-movie-like concept of Bones being the monster - :icontriple-shot:
1st Place - for their intricate detail and ghastly take on Bones being very surreal - :iconM-Spencer:
Congratulations for the 3 placing winners!!!
BUT! It doesn't end just there.
As a token of my appreciation for ALL THE PARTICIPANTS, I would like to extend a special gift for all of your hard work and devotion!
To this, I would like to present a pair of options!

Imagination, Inspiration, and CurationAs deviants, we are serious about our craft, hobbyist or professional. We study hard to become better at what we do. There are many great tutorials here and elsewhere on these kinds of craft based skills and techniques. However, sometimes all that serious study and hard work gets in the way of our imagination. Therefore, it is important to remember to establish a wonder filled mindset, actively seek out inspiration, and curate a library of inspiring content to reference in the future. This article explores some ways to do these three things, and I encourage you to comment and share even more tips on this for other deviants!Imagination, Inspiration, and Curation2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Inviting the Mind of a Child
“The point is to develop the childlike inclination for play.”-Albert Einstein
The biggest part of imagination is playing the part of Peter Pan. You might be 99 or you might be 12, but it is often important to imagination to be in the head space of a 5-7 year old. I

(it ends on January 6th! 650points and art for first place, as well as a FREE icon raffle even if you don't enter!)
EDIT: a total of 400points has been donated to the prizes by anaracorra
THE TOPIC OF THIS CONTEST IS TOOOOOOOOOOO.. design a new OC for me to use as my own, alongside my own OCs. This means that I will ADOPT the design from the winner(s) and they will have an active place in one of my pre-existing OC's stories/lives/etc. I will not be adopting this OC just to throw them in my OC pile and be forgotten, lol.
"So, what kind of OC do we need to make?"
I have made this contest a bit more flexible, allowing it to be easier for animal-artists to join as well

Deviant DiscoveryDeviant Discovery2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
WHAT IS DEVIANT DISCOVERY?
Deviant Discovery is a weekly Journal Feature that focuses specifically on Deviants that have good art, but haven't gotten much attention for it. Every week, a new Deviant will be chosen, and a few of their artworks will be show in this Journal, along with a description of the artist themselves. This weekly feature will serve as an attempt to get under-appreciated artists more attention then they already have.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It will work in a similar way to Daily Deviations - either I could select a Deviant myself, or someone could be suggested by another Deviant. Once a Deviant is chosen, we'll find their best five Deviations to be featured in the Journal. Then, we'll give a short description of the artist's work, and a small explanation of why they were chosen. The feature will remain on the front of my page for seven days [168 hours; one week], so that the Deviant can get continuous attention. Suggestions could be s
September Contest: Revealed!I tried to do this as early as possible and boy am I tired for doing so but a lot of you have been super stoked about learning the theme. I hope it meets your standards!September Contest: Revealed!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The theme this month is Celebrating the Uncelebrated.
Every month, dozens of little known holidays go by completely unrecognized and uncelebrated. They've got to be feeling a little more than depressed at having been ignored so long. This month, however, will be different. You will be honouring these poor, unloved holidays with your plush creations. The holidays you can choose to celebrate are as follows:
International Literacy Day (September 8th): This years theme is Literacy and Peace for this all important holiday created to "disseminate... literacy awareness amongst world's illiterate community." Since 1965, this holiday has been celebrated worldwide yearly, each time with a new mission. Basically, if you're reading this, you really ought to care tons about this because that means you're literate!

London Christmas devMEET - 21st DecemberThis is a reminder update. None of the details have changed.London Christmas devMEET - 21st December2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hi everyone, Kiwi here!
I've wanted to organise a meet for a long time, and what better time to hold my first one than Christmas?
Since we all know what the English weather will be like at that time of year, I thought an indoor venue would be best, so it will be at the Natural History Museum. I know someone else has organised a meet here, but some people can't make it, and you can never visit the NHM too many times! And hey, it's free
Theme: Since it's Christmas, the 'theme' will be sharing and focusing on the community spirit. That means getting to know others and looking into some types of art you're less familiar with. If you draw, talk to a writer. If you sculpt, talk to a photographer. Simple as that!
Date: Friday 21st December
We'll meet outside the Natural History Museum entrance (Cromwell Road

Update (December 17): Alright guys, I've decided to make some changes to the deadlines for sending in gifts since a lot of people have had complications with the dates o__o I'm allowing you to send them in ALL THE WAY from the 21st to the 28th; so that gives you some time after X-mas in case you're traveling. Still, it's preferrable you get it done on Christmas or close to it >u>; Procedure is still the same. The earliest you're allowed to post it is the 21st. And then you send me a link, I post it on a journal (I might post it up later because I'm traveling on the 21st) and you also send one to your recipient If you have any questions, PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK WITH ME!

You never recieved the shit end of the deal, have you, bullies?
Try to see the world as if you were the one being bullied, harrassed, stalked.
This world is terrible now. We got the swagfags, and yolo idiots. The trolls, the 'kill yourselves" kids, creatures of death.
We can't just live in a world where people are humane to each other.
Why can't when someone is down, why can't someone just help them up?
Why must you laugh at the ones who are down?

The ones who starve

PE: 5 reasons to believe in yourselfSuccess is not a measure of how much money you earn or how popular you are, rather, it is being able to find your passion - one that makes you happy and ultimately, one that you would be happy to leave as your legacy. To make a step forward to reach your dream takes smarts and guts but why couldn't you? Here is five reasons why you can.PE: 5 reasons to believe in yourself2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Everyone was born equal
More-less, this is true, some people are born more challenged than others but we all possess skills and ability to learn. It is possible to build something out of nothing if we really want to. It all comes down to our preferences and decisions.
"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent."
2. Overcoming your fears
By constantly challenging yourself, you can get rid of fears that used to follow you. You will no longer be worried, you'll know you can count on yourself.
"If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you're right."

SOPA is bad for deviantART & YouIf you spend any sort of time on the internet you may have heard about the SOPA bill being debated around Congress. SOPA, for those not in the know, stands for Stop Online Piracy Act, and in a nutshell it exists in the interest of making it easier for the holders of intellectual property (aka copyrighted materials) to get "theft" of their materials removed.SOPA is bad for deviantART & You3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sounds fair, at first, right? Well the problem lies not necessarily in the intent (protecting one's property) and more in how broad the bill is and how much power it gives law enforcement and the holders of intellectual property.
Again, simplifying things down beyond compare, SOPA would allow a company like Nintendo (who supports the bill) to come upon a site like deviantART and decide that it doesn't care for all of the images of its famed character Mario. So it might say "hey, you guys are harboring theft of our content" and would take quick and easy steps to literally shut us down. All because you uploaded an image of Mario. But

PE: Learning to paint with deviantArtA lot of people want to learn to draw and paint better but they just don't know where to start. You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them. When you know what you want to improve, searching for a good tip gets even easier.PE: Learning to paint with deviantArt2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
