Submission reviews are in progress, winner will be announced some time this week. Thanks to all who entered!
I know you've all been wondering when the heck I was going to start my latest contest so I have good news! You don't have to wait any longer. It's llama time!
This contest is going to be pretty simple. It involves two amazing things that are rarely combined -- llamas and giant grandma underwear. The goal of this contest is to make some sort of artwork involving those two things. What you can do is up to you! It can be an exact interpretation or an abstract one.
Some examples for inspiration would be: a llama in MLP style with a underwear cutie mark, a llama wearing pin
Spreading Semi-Realism appreciation!Spreading Semi-Realism appreciation!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
'Cloud rhapsody' by anndr
Since I believe the efforts of semi-realism artists are not sufficiently appreciated, because there are so many fantastic illustrations in this style that does not have the right visibility on here, I decided to create an article to advertise these artists that are, for me, the 'new faces' of this fashionable and yet so difficult art style.
First of all, Semi-realism is a drawing style derived from mangas but more complex in terms of style. Indeed, if we want to be more precise, it is the missing link between mangas and digital art. No giant eyes but neither skin blemishes.
I would really appreciate if dA could add a category for this particular art style but I can easily admit the boundaries to define this style are very labile.
Well, after this brief introduction, I'm featuring some samples of this style from real

I wasn't going to say anything about this here, but a friend told me that it's getting bad on Tumblr and we might be dealing with another Mikey scandal-- and I think there are certain things that need to be said. As usual, this will be long.
If you don't know what happened: I checked Mikey's Twitter last night and noticed that his tweets to Sarah had disappeared, including all the #oneact stuff and a photo of them together he posted a while ago. I thought that seemed suspicious, so I checked to see if Mikey and Sarah were still following each other. Strangely, they weren't. I checked Sarah's tweets and didn't find anything intriguing, but when I checked again a half hour later, she'd deleted her Twitter entirely. Then I logged onto Tumblr
Foal color Generator How to design a foal using a random generatorFoal color Generator5 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you ask me to design the foal for you, I will design it by picking the markings randomly. But I'll try to to this as realistic as possible. For example, two horses with a lot of white (wide blazes and stockings) mostl likely won't get a foal without any markings, and the other way around. So I modify chances to get a likely result.
It's a lot of fun to design foals this way, and very exciting. If you want to try it, feel free ^^
This is an example how I do it:
Sire: Murphys Law, Seal Brown Color Genetics: At a | E e
Dam: Miss X, Chestnut, A a | ee
I need [RANDOM.ORG] and a text document, for example Word.
The Base Color
First thing is to generate the foals base color.
On random.org, I fill in: Min: 1, Max: 2
I start with the Black/Chestnut gene: E / e.
Murphy has E and e, so the E gets No.1 and e No. 2
I press "generate" and Random.org gives me a "1", that means the foal

1. Most of your fanart is simple but effective. Why do you prefer simplicity over elaborate detail?
I think I have always just been drawn to minimalist pieces. All of my favorite movie posters or comic covers or artwork is usually focused on one subject with a simple color scheme. To me that's more powerful and it gives your subject the attention it deserves. My full time job is actually in advertising, so I'm used to getting straight to the point.
I try to make the main focus of my work detailed and let that do the talking, rather than having a crazy background.
2. What is your favorite MCR-related drawing in your gallery and why?
I know it's cheating, but I have two favorites in particular: The first is Helena, because it's my favorite song and video of theirs of all time. It's what officially made me an MCR fan.
The second is the

Deviant and Art MentionsMentions: Connecting PeopleDeviant and Art Mentions2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Mentions are a new, highly requested feature that makes engaging friends and artists in conversation more dynamic than ever before.
What is a Mention?
A Mention is when a deviant’s username, icon, or artwork is included in a comment or Journal. Mentions create links to the deviants or artwork you include, allowing you to highlight artists and engage deviants with ease.
Links to pages on deviantART can quickly be distinguished by their bold, dark-blue color, while external links are darker and have an arrow indicating you are leaving deviantART.
Deviants you mention are notified in the new Mentions section of the Message Center, making engaging and involving others in conversation a simple, hassle-free experience.
How to Mention
There are four ways to mention a deviant.
Discussion: Selling outSome people have accused MCR of “selling out” recently and claimed that the Greatest Hits album is their final attempt to suck cash out of fans’ wallets. I don’t know what the guys’ intentions were (though I’m betting this was the record label’s idea, not theirs), but it got me thinking about selling out, good and bad merchandise, and the difference between greedy cash grabs and putting food on your family’s table. There’s no clear-cut definition of any of these things, but it’s something I’ve pondered for years.Discussion: Selling out2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Personally, I don’t have a problem with the Greatest Hits Album, especially knowing that the guys need that money: their biggest source of income is gone, and they all have kids/step-kids now (if that rumor about Ray is true, anyway. I’m still lost on that one.) And it doesn’t cheapen their music. If they released an album of bland garbage that they knew was bad just to sell albums, or t

Not only does she draw Killjoy fan art, she also roleplays, runs a group, develops OCs, runs Tumblr blogs, and maintains a long-running fan fiction, all while going to art school and planning for the future. In this interview, we learn about her creative process and everything she does for this fandom.Interview with hisironicprincess2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Your roleplays are often elaborate and heavily-invested. Why do you prefer this kind of roleplaying? How has it influenced the way you see the Killjoy universe?
I really like getting into the scene. I think of roleplaying as partner writing. So if you treat it like something that’s supposed to be professional, it can become the center of everything. Long term roleplays usually help me think out small details that I wouldn't include normally, like the fauna of the desert, or how different materials can affect the skin of a charac

What is real music?“MCR saved my life, and their music is so meaningful, unlike other music today like rap and country.”What is real music?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me tell you, friends, there is not a more ignorant statement to make you look foolish and naïve when it comes to music. Whenever I see a fellow MCR fan state something like the above, I can only roll my eyes and scoff at the stupidity of such an idea. As they say, there is much more than meets the eye. If you simply graze the surface of a music genre and consider everything else to be more of the same, you miss the greater picture deduced on the tip of a proverbial iceberg.
It surprises me that some MCR fans feel so fanatically about other music genres outside of the MCR music-relation world, considering they have been given this treatment by the general public as well. “My Chemical Romance leads a death cult”, “My Chemical Romance fans are all emo kids who cut themselves”, “My Chemical Romance plans mass suicide pact after death
Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.

Many of you are aware of the Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter. For those who aren't, I would like to make you aware of it! American McGee has acquired film rights to the "Alice" property and is ramping up for a series of animated short films featuring our favorite tortured, blood-soaked heroine. The Kickstarter is within its last 66 hours of funding and needs your help to become a reality!
Please visit the Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter page to check out the video, and throw money at it! If you are unable to fund then please at least pass on the message to friends and other fans.
I love ALICE and the world that American McGee and Spicy Horse have created, and I hope they reach their target goal - we need more madness in this world!

i think stopping was the most heroic thing they could have done.
and i admire them all the more for being the fucking detonator

It is with heavy hearts that we must inform you of the passing of our darling daughter, Alie. Her final days were fairly peaceful, sleeping much of the time but also able to watch some of the Winter Olympics and enjoy her favorite event, figure skating. Her final moments were peaceful with both parents by her bedside.

From the moment in December when the news came of her terminal illness, Alie has continually amazed us with her positive attitude and limitless spirit. We have all learned from her selfless approach to life, her giving nature, and her passion for the possibilities that life hold for all of us She was so thankful for all of the outreach shown to her by her frie
