PE: Fan Art vs Original ArtFan Art vs. Manga & Anime: The differencesPE: Fan Art vs Original Art1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Many people have come to me in the past with questions regarding whether their work qualified as Manga & Anime or Fan Art, same happened with many Daily Deviations that were placed in the M&A gallery when they should have been submitted to the Fan Art Gallery, oops!
Do you have doubts regarding the submission process? Wonder no more, we'll unveil all the mysteries surrounding the categories! :iconokie2plz:
Fan art includes those artworks that are based on or contain material such as characters, settings, concepts or universes in general that are copyrighted to someone else other than the artist creating said Fan artwork.
Manga and Anime art, on the other hand, is home for all the artworks that artists have created from scratch and are not related to any preexisting universe nor contain any copyrighted material.
Buy your own world's animation from JapanSpeaking about the subject which is like business which is mainly for artist who has their own world and wanna make it as animation.Buy your own world's animation from Japan1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you can make your own animation by using Japanese professional animators
do you think it would be the thing you do wanna order? and how much you can cost for making it?
It is said that "the animation full packaged ( which means "with color, voice, SE, BGM ) in 30 minutes" would cost $100,000 - $150,000.
But if it was more short, or not being colored, not with voice, or not being inked, do you think how much it would cost?

Complete Pyramid Head Helmet TutorialIntroductionComplete Pyramid Head Helmet Tutorial7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay everyone, here is the long awaited Pyramid Head Helmet Tutorial! Unfortunately, I do not have step by step pictures, nor do I have measurements of the actual frame or the foam-board panels, just the finished product. Also, I did not sketch out blueprints when I made the helmet, but I used pictures as references. I'll describe later how I did that. As a matter of fact, that might be more helpful to you than the actual measurements themselves. But anyways, lets get started. Use the following links as reference throughout the tutorial:

PE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style Basic notions for drawing heads and facesPE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome back everyone! Today I'm going to teach you the basics of drawing a face. Before I start, I want to clarify that this is the way I do it, but there are a thousand other methods that you can follow, make sure you understand the concepts and apply them the best you can, you don't have to stictly do it like I do, develop your own way and keep on learning!
Many artists suggest using circles to start sketching the head and the body but... I don't use them. I've never used them. I tried using them in the past and it only resulted in messed up lines and strange-looking faces and heads. So I dropped the circles. If you feel comfortable using them, I bow to you and I encourage you to keep using them, but I'm afraid you won't see any circles in my tutorial

Journal skins are premade, installable layouts that allow you to customize the look and feel of your journal.
Here are a few examples:
Who can use journal skins?
Only premium members on deviantART can use journal skins.
If you're unsure about whether or not you're a premium member, just go to your profile page and look at the top. If it says "Need Premium Membership", you're not a premium member.
How do I use journal skins?
Find a skin that you like. You can browse for one here, the Installable Journal Skins category.
Pick a skin that you like.

How to Stop Planning and Use What You've GotArticle cowritten by ShadowedAcolyte and neurotype.How to Stop Planning and Use What You've Got1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
We've chosen to present this in bullets. The first few are ways to tell when your planning has gone too far; the rest are how to get past that.
Featured literature was chosen for its ability to present exposition: good pacing, tantalizing hints, etc.
How do I know I've planned too much?
When you can't hold it all in your head.When you can't explain it without a long-winded summary."So you've planned X. How will you reveal X to the reader?" If you can't immediately think of a good idea, it's probably overplanned.
Volume: how much of your story is world-building/backstory?
Properly spaced, you could get up to 10% world into a story without ruining the book (e.g. for an epic fantasy or something else not set in a place readers will immediately recognize). The rest should be happening now.If the setting is much more familiar—like, Everytown, USA, it could easily be 1% backstory.

FC/OCSome confusion seems to be going around about this latly and I think it needs some clearing up.FC/OC2 years ago in Personal More Like This
FC, meaning "Fan Character" implies that the character is in someway connected to an already existing franchise of characters, that YOU yourself did not create.
OC, meaning "Original Character" implies that YOU made everything about the character's story/connection and connection to other characters all on your own, and has NO relevance to anything not owned by yourself.
Now I'm not one to get hung up on labels and all that shit, but if you don't want your character to be viewed in the wrong light then make sure you say what he/she is accordingly because when it comes to this kind of stuff, involving copyrighted material, you really need to be clear. An FC can't stand on it's own 2 feet, an OC can, and can become your own registered trademark.
I hope this clears up some confusion.

IT IS TIMESeriously.IT IS TIME3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The musical revolution of the world should, no, must be introduced into the midst of all artists here. Music being available on deviantART is something that I would have expected long ago. It is an art form that travels through the core of a person and evokes feeling of sudden realization or just sweet lulling bliss. I know it will be difficult, but it should at least be tried.
I have only come across one person of deviantART (Who is absolutely brilliant let me say) Who has been able to upload music on deviantART quite cleverly if I say so my self. You have probably heard of this awesomeness that is RainCookie
She created this:
When I saw it, I realized just how deviantART could discover great talent such as hers! It is an original composition. Accessing music on this site needs to be made easier because we are missing out on great talents! We could have someone on deviantART who could create something as great as this:

Contest deadlineYes, I'm fully aware of my lack of updates. I finally managed to get a job, and it's keeping me very busy. I promise I'll start updating the "Oblivion" comic as soon as I can.Contest deadline2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, I wanted to remind everyone there are two more weeks left until the end of the "Oblivion" contest. Not trying to put pressure on you, but I would kinda like for my first art contest to have more than one entry (though it will make the process of deciding the winner extremely easy).
Good luck everyone!
Based on the results of my most recent poll, it seems there IS enough people interested for an "Oblivion" related contest. So, I decided not to wait any longer before starting it.
As you know, I've done some small art-related contests in the past where you have to guess a certain thing about a picture I drew and you win a prize. But, this is my first "classic" contest, where the contestants submit their artwork.
