April Hero Challenge: Kevin MellonApril Hero Challenge: Kevin Mellon5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As a storyboard and comic artist, I often do a lot of fight and action scenes, having to distill a lot of motion into a single still image.
For this challenge I’d love to see what kinds of things you guys come up with and how you convey the idea of motion in a single image.

Contest Winners!It may have only been ten entries long, but our first contest was a doozy to judge. Partly due to the nature of the contest, but also due to the wide range of themes explored by the participants, from romance to mental batles. Our judges were looking for cohesion and creativity, and I do believe we found both. Without further ado, here are the winners!Contest Winners!11 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
An Anthology of Flowers by introverted-ghost
An interesting theme and well thought-out reasoning took the judges near-unanimously. Inspired by Stephen Chobsky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower, introverted-ghost uses her feature to consider what it means to be an introvert, and does so in stylish, lyrical prose.

Draw With Us #2 - Landscapes and SceneryHello everyone!Draw With Us #2 - Landscapes and Scenery3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying your holidays
Welcome to the second installment of Draw With Us! The topic I've picked this month is Scenery and Landscapes, mainly because apart from being one of my favourite topics it seems to be where Digital artists can really struggle. There have been quite a few deviations rejected from this group because even though the subject matter is done really well, the background needs a lot of work.
It seems however that I've made the mistake of underestimating just how expansive this topis really is, so to make things easier I'm going to focus on natural landscapes more rather than cityscapes and man made settings.
The first lot of tutorials that I wanted to share were a few on Perspective and Composition because they play such a large part in Landscape paintings. Some of the later tutorials have some notes about perspective, but these are exclusive to the topic;

How Much Would You Pay, for a Masters Painting?I'm sure you've all probably heard of the great Master John Constable, an English "romantic landscape" painter of the 18th/19th century and his love of the British Landscape where he was brought up in rural Suffolk.How Much Would You Pay, for a Masters Painting?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The famous auctioneers Christies have announced that one of Constables landscape paintings; The Lock is to be sold by them.
The BBC asked several members of the public in this video just how much they would pay for this beautiful painting.

deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!Spam is a constant thorn in the side of every Internet user's daily life. From the mundane to the surreal, these emails appear in our inboxes so frequently, messages from South African attorneys offering $10 million dollars get marked as spam without a second thought to savvy users.deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
We define spam as the misuse of communication systems to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately to our deviants. Typically, the content of spam messages is aimed at advertising a product that is often counterfeit or potentially malicious. With the rise of social networking, there's been an increase in more direct spamming -- companies who directly target your social network profiles.
"Over the last few years, deviantART has had a small but unfortunate stream of such abuse. Usually, it’s as easy as banning the offending members and moving on to more pressing problems, but recently something happened that caused us to re-evaluate how we handle spam issues."

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming4 years ago in Personal More Like This

1. Selling yourself as a beginner
I found a prime example of this in a forum for artists seeking work. The thread title was „Starting-out artist looking for a chance",, and the thread told that the artist is „looking for a client for whom I may draw" and has „just graduated from art college".
We all were at this point once, but usually it takes too long to realize that „beginner" is the wrong mindset, even if you are one. Such statements sound like excuses and are guaranteed to weaken your position. Don't make excuses. Do not justify your work, and do not justify your prices. This is a tricky habit to acquire since we're not very confident by nature, but remember the image you wan
