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

Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)This is not a rumor!Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was officially announced that there will be a BRAND NEW Sailormoon Anime in Summer 2013! The original Japanese VAs for Moon and Tuxy seem to be reprising their roles (based on the conversation in the event). We don't have much more detail, a letter from Naoko said she hopes we like the new series and she's happy to be making it. She said she's overwhelmed at the support the series still has and it makes her happy. She didn't think she could do something new but now she's happy she can bring them back!
They said the audience is intended to be the original fans of the show. It will be like a "powered up" of the original story, aimed at the good girls (and boys!) who grew up with the show. TOEI is doing it.
There was something in the announcement about it being released worldwide but we don't know the details. We do not know what this means as far as a possible English dub/sub. We don't yet know when/how this will reach a US market.

Homophobic #ToMyUnbornChild tweets turned into PSACharlotte Moore (Cavatica) from Raleigh, North Carolina has created a PSA against homophobia after the Twitter hashtag #ToMyUnbornChild attracted homophobes to publicly announce that they would murder their child if he or she was gay.Homophobic #ToMyUnbornChild tweets turned into PSA4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
#ToMyUnbornChild became a trending topic on Twitter a few weeks ago, and while most people used it to write loving tweets to their future children, some homophobes decided to do just the opposite.
@Homophobes, a Twitter account that retweets homophobes to expose their ignorance, published an article of 100 extremely homophobic tweets, which gained quite a bit of attention around the web.
Charlotte Moore was inspired, and decided to write and direct a PSA using the tweets. The video was produced by Brian Lee and Nick Heim.

EncouragementWhen I started out on DeviantArt, I used to be one of those artists that thought I could never do art properly.Encouragement1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'll start saying that I spend most of my childhood getting only little encouragement.
My parents were, like many other parents, convinced that art wasn't that much of a useful skill since it's nearly impossible to earn money with -- and would've liked it if I spend my time doing something more useful instead. At school I was that pathetic kid without friends. Creative, yet very introverted. The one that gets bullied in the schoolyard. Needless to say; it was rare to find people saying something nice about me, and it was even more rare to find someone actually encouraging me.
Back then, I used to believe that I was alone. I initially signed up to DeviantArt to find people with similar interests. But it happened to change my mind along the way. When I came into contact with other artists, I came to realize that there were in fact many people just like me. People th

As in, a very in-depth, super-faithful comic that we would ask JKR if we could publish for cost of printing (no profit).Harry Potter Comic Series4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The first steps to the realisation of this project have been determined:
*A DeviantART group has been created (to be found here).
*A Subreddit has been created here
*A chapter will be assigned to each artist (we need artists!)
*In order to have consistent character designs, a character trait list will be made.
Here's essentially what we'll be doing:
*Assigning a chapter at a time to each artist

*Organising it nicely

PIPA and SOPA... They LiedLink for PIPA/SOPA haters (personally, I think they're using doing the right thing as an excuse to seize power): http://guardian54.deviantart.com/#/d4my09wPIPA and SOPA... They Lied4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
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

Delicate yet deadly, simple yet sophisticated, she is the master of trickery and deception. Far from being just a pretty face, the white queen is known for her intelligence and her love of illusions, be careful or you may just find yourself in a very unfortunate situation. She is always paying careful attention to everything around her, very little happens in her kingdom without her finding out about it. You may be thinking "how is it that no one has stood up to her?" and to that there is only one answer, how many white queens can you stand up too?

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.

Christ I'm old.
Now, I don't have a problem with dA changing their prices. Inflation is a real thing, and a business has to do what it must to stay afloat. What astounds me, though, they're making such a big deal out of it. Aren't you supposed to not have some big front-page celebration of raising prices? Aren't you just supposed to sneak it in, not say a word, and hope nobody really notices? And if people do raise a fuss, make some business-ey statement about "operating costs" and "economic trends" in some big-worded pile of lip service to quell the peasant folk?
And not only are they making a big deal out of it
A Rant about 'Renders' HiyaA Rant about 'Renders'1 month ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So I was linked ( yet Again), to a piece of artwork where someone had used one of my pieces, cut the character off the background, and slapped it onto another background ( that they also didn't draw), and uploaded it as their own.
Fun fact: There are people out there, that take art off google, or Pixiv, Or DA, etc etc- cut out the characters, and call them "Renders".
No mentioned of the original artists of course ( lol hell no).
Then they always write "You may not use this work without my permission" under it...
And these things are everywhere on DA now that they no longer accept third party reports. I got into an argument with this person who does this and he claimed " This is an Art Form called GFX" ...like..somehow justifying it. I said that you can't do that without the original artists permission. I doubt ANY artist wants th
