Free Key Giveaway #25 and Condolences - CLOSED EDIT: WINNER IS #662 THE KEY WILL GO TO :iconIniwid:Free Key Giveaway #25 and Condolences - CLOSED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks everyone! Check back next week for a new contest!
Giveaway #25 is now CLOSED, we'll upload a new journal next friday for #26!
First off, we just wanted to say that our hearts go out to the friends and families of those poor kids (and adults). What happened today was a terrible, terrible thing. I have no idea what went through that person's head that made him want to do that, but our deepest condolences go out to those involved in the shooting.
Please be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
And yes, we are back to giving away a free key. This week we will be giving away two free keys to one person. The catch is, you have to give away the second key to someone else! A friend, a family member, etc. Because it's the holidays and giving is a wonderful thing
Please be sure to say who you're going to give the second key to! If you post your comment and forgot to post who the second one is going to
Charity and KeysHey everyone!Charity and Keys2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We just wanted to give a huge thanks for everyone who participated in the Ebay auction, thanks to one very generous individual we were able to donate $710 to Kids Against Hunger!
The generosity was extraordinary, I'm not sure if the winner has a DA account but if you do we are more than happy to feature you
This Friday we'd like to continue to promote giving for the holidays, most likely we'll be giving away 2 free keys on DA instead of 1, but the catch is, if you win you have to give one of the keys to another person (friends, family, strangers you meet in the park who try to get you to go with them in their white van) etc.
So keep an eye out and be sure to read the instructions on this week's Free Key Giveaway on Friday You'll have to state who you'll be giving the other key to (no, they don't have to have a DA and no we won't drive to your house if you win and make sure you give it to them. We aren't creepy like that. At least most of us aren't.
Free Key Giveaway - Charity editionAs most of you know, every Friday we here at Keyper's Cove give away a free key each week. So far, we've given away over $700 worth of free stuff to say thanks for all your wonderful support!Free Key Giveaway - Charity edition2 years ago in Personal More Like This
December is a month of giving, so for this month and this month only we decided to do something a little different: we will not be giving away a free key this week. Instead, we'd like to auction off a pendant and donate the money to kids in need!
Keyper's Cove is holding a Charity auction! In light of the Holiday season, we will be donating 100% of all profit made off this pendant to Kids Against Hunger http://www.kidsagainsthunger.org/index.shtml
Starting Bid: $1
We will ship all over the world!
You can bid on this item here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=221163502000
So technically we're not giving away a free key this week Never fear! We'll still continue it

The Pitfalls of Speed PaintingI've been meaning to write about this for a while now, but recently a video popped on up Ctrl+Paint about the same topic and it encouraged me to finally talk about it. It's a practice that's been misconstrued and misunderstood for a while now, so I wanted to help people get a proper understanding on the subject.The Pitfalls of Speed Painting3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Speed painting has been something of a fad for 4 or 5 years now, even back when I was first starting digital work. Like many artists out there, I thought, "Sweet, I can do really cool work, really fast!" And like many artists out there, in the back of my head I was probably thinking, "This is easier than learning the normal way!"
Well, here's the main problem in regards to speed painting. Any of those really cool, realistic and well done speed paintings you see are done by professionals who have been painting for years and years. These a

"DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST?

Believe it or not there is a difference. I'm not usually a soapbox type guy, I don't like instructing people, and I think I'm a terrible teacher. But hey, it's Friday and I'm in a strange mood. So here goes:
I've noticed that a good number of my fans happen to be aspiring artists themselves. This is for all you guys. I get asked constantly: "Where should I go to school?" "What classes should I take?" "What should I study for anatomy?" "What pencils and paper do you use?" "Should I be working digitally now instead of traditionally?" "How do I fix my poses? Learn composition? Perspective?" "When
Daily Features - Oct + Nov 2011On my profile page, I feature a new deviation every day. The piece is usually something that caught my eye. Could be an amazing digital painting, a fun stamp, a quick photograph that made me smile, perhaps a piece for a weekly theme, whatever. However, it moved me enough to share it with my visitors. Below is a list of the artists which I featured over the past month. I am showcasing different pieces from their gallery in the hope of showing them a bit more love.

Ninja Turtles by lukekeith
The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem

Editorial | Khader Adnan: His dignity. Our shame.
This week, Khader Adnan entered his third month of a hunger strike
against his unlawful detention and mistreatment at the hands of the Israeli military.
The deafening silence by world leaders and media at his plight shames us all.

Somewhere in the Middle East, a 33-year old man is today entering the 60th day of a hunger strike.
He is currently lying as he has done for weeks with one hand, and one leg,
shackled to his hospital bed. By the time you read this, he could be dead.

COMPETITION FOR 1,500 POINTS!NOTE: You have to watch my friend Martyna-Photography to be able to win this, but please don't tell her I'm doing this, okay? Don't ask her for points, don't bring it up with her. She's my friend, and I don't want that on her page.COMPETITION FOR 1,500 POINTS!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
To win 1,500 do the following:
1. Watch Martyna-Photography, without telling her you're doing it because of this.
2. Comment. The comment must contain a dummy (: dummy: with no space). Make it a funny comment, because these do appear in my mail
3. Fave the journal.
Standard one comment a person, ends 2nd of January, if you want a reply, write on my page.
NOTE: Want people to watch you next time maybe? If you're good enough, I'll put you in a journal! Or put up a "fave this deviation"! Just note me!
Need references?Although drawing and painting "from life" is way much more effective and efficient than drawing from photos (I'll be writting a separate journal about this soon, no worries), you simply can't have a person to model for you every time you want to create something. And there are situations when you don't exactly know how to place that bloody hand or if the foot is drawn correctly. Similiar issues can happen with architecture, perspective... with everything you draw. Then, when you look for help, you may stumble upon Stock gallery and you find awesome things.

I’ve taken a lot of heat over the past couple of days for celebrating the ending as being very progressive. A lot of people seemed quite adamant that Korra and Asami were just good friends and there was nothing romantically intentional about the ending at all. Some even going so far to say that my comment about the bi-sexual flag colored mountains was “reading too much into it.”
But y’all can suck it now! Cuz it’s CONFIRMED!
