Deviants who offer Points commissionsThis journal was first posted in 2012 and although it has been updated various times since then, I'm no longer updating it or adding anyone new to it as of January 2014.Deviants who offer Points commissions2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Lots of artists on dA do Points Commissions, also known as PCs, which involve creating art or design for other people on request in return for Points. Here are just a few of them...
If you're looking for a specific type of commission, simply use Ctrl+F, type in what you want (literature, drawing, polymer clay, digital, animation, colouring, icons, logos, design, tutorials, stamps, emotes, vector, 3D, pixel dolls, photography, photomanipulation, space art, terragen, digital art, journal skins, journal scripts, wallpapers, comics, fractals, journal css, gallery css, cosmetic application, craft) and your browser will do the hard work for you!

PE Street, children, is a state of mindSTREET, CHILDREN, IS A STATE OF MINDPE Street, children, is a state of mind2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Street, children, is a state of mind: what defines street photography is not the subject, but the 'forma mentis' of the photographer.
Street photography is a way to look at the ordinary and see something special or unusual in it, to look at everyday situations and find a decisive moment in them, to look at candid happenings and see iconic interactions between people and surroundings in them.
The iN-PUBLiC | Manifesto, one of the most representative sites about street photography in the world, states that "all the photographers featured there have been invited to show their work because they have the ability to see the unusual in the everyday life and to capture the moment".
The subject of a street photo is not necessarily interesting, unusual, unseen in itself, but its strenght comes from the NARRATIVE CONSTRUCTION that the photographer is able to create around the subject. The way the photographer presents it,

A bandwagon that has been turned to a charity!
What started as innocent fun to use Topicality's avatar, quickly spread into other deviants to use her avatar :icontopicality: as their own.
Now, Topicality has made this bandwagon to a charity!
For every deviant that uses her Dancing Business Feline Topicality as their own avatar, she will donate 50 cents to the ASPCA, The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Everyone is free to join!
To use her icon:
Right click on her avatar :icontopicality: and save the image (gif file) in your computer.
Or click this thumb and hit download!
Go to your profile page and hover over your avatar. A 'change your avatar' and pencil mode appears. Click on it! (You can also change it through your settings page)

As a way to kick off April's coloring contest, we are once again hosting the 1/50 for 150 Raffle! All you have to do is +Fav this journal, which puts you in a random drawing to win an easy 150 dA points! Pretty easy, huh? So easy and effortless, you'll probably wake up in a few days having completely forgotten, and wondering just who this color-me-club fellow is that's throwing random dA points at you.
There will be a winner added for each extra 50 +Fav's this journal receives. So you have, at minimum, a one in fifty shot at winning! However, the winner cap will be at 500 +Fav's, so get yourself in quickly to be in the first 500 before the cap is reached!
Of course, this whole raffle thing is just a big ol' ruse to stir up attention to an even bigger event. Yep, already mentioned it earlier, but colorists unite(!) we're also kicking off our next coloring contest!

How to draw during 365 daysHow to draw during 365 days1 month ago in Deviant Events More Like This
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?

Why I disagree with Kony 2012Many on here and on Facebook have messaged me about the Kony 2012 movie. It's very well-made and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.Why I disagree with Kony 20123 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Kony is a terrible criminal, and I am very much for bringing him to justice. However, I do not share the enthusiasm of the overwhelming majority about the movie and the proposals put forward by the makers. Here are ten criticisms I came up with, in no particular order.
1) If something is being hyped up all around you, this is a strong signal to think for yourself. Be especially suspicious when someone wants to use FORCE to do GOOD. Paradoxically, if you REALLY care - don't fall for appeal to emotion, as is being done here. Consider the implications and outcomes, rather than the motives. Don't let the public opinion shape yours, let the facts do so. Don't let one issue overshadow other issues which could be more important. Don't be afraid to disagree with the majority. Truth i

Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.

Most artblocks come from fear. The fear of not being able to

PE Street and neighborhoodPE STREET AND NEIGHBORHOODPE Street and neighborhood2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sometimes deciding if a photo fits Street category or not can be really quibbling.
Every subject can be photographed with a street approach and fit street photography, and every subject can be photographed with a not-street approach and fit something else.
Categories mean nothing outside this place (or other art sites) and mean nothing about the value or quality of an image.
Though they are useful to make it easier to see, discover, find street images.
I hope that these few lines will be able to clear some of the most common doubts in submitting to street category, and would spare you flipping a coin before submitting.
So let's try to set some "limits" to street photography, even knowing that the edges between street photography and other neighbors genres of photography will ALWAYS be thin, vague, and often subjective.

Remember this: The Nazis started by burning books, ACTA/PIPA/SOPA started by burning websites. Megaupload was the first, it will not be the last. When the masses no logner have information, they will be easy prey for the politicians to mould and shape to their will.
Wikipedia has so much copyrighted but not authorized material that its, by my estimate, 15 million web pages will become victims of ACTA in short order if laws supporting the ACTA treaty, signed secretly on October 1, 2011, are passed. That is equal to the number of Holocaust deaths of all groups, not just Jews. It is a bastion of modern knowledge, and let's face it, knowledge is power, they take our knowledge away, they take our power away, where does our power go? To them, of course. Websites may not be equal to human lives, but to us, they are negligible compared to l

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May
End Date: Monday
