Maybe some of you saw this, but I made this fake imdb page for a Marauders BBC show and posted it on tumblr. It was just supposed to be a joke/fantasy, but apparently a lot of people bought it

Today, I want to talk about something that's been on my mind for quite a long time: Daily Deviation suggestions.
But it wasn't until I read Lyricanna's There is no nice way to say it but and alicexz's New DD Suggestion rule that I felt the need to echo their words and add my two cents.
Quality of art: When sending a Fan Art suggestions, please bear in mind that I want to feature unique works. The best of a fanartist's gallery. What I look for in a Fan Art Daily Deviation is not cuteness. Cute just doesn't cut it, like Lyricanna said. I search for emotions, technical skill (composition, shading, colour, etc), interaction of the characters with their surroundings and other characters. I'm looking for pieces that tell me a story and/or show emotion. Of course, there ar

A Tribute to Russian Snape ArtistsOne of the things that blew my mind when I first came to DA was the number of Russian fan artists here and how incredibly good they are. In Russia the HP and Snape fandom seems to be very active, and it shows.A Tribute to Russian Snape Artists1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What I particularly like about the Russian artists is that a) for the most part they are highly skilled, b) often they have very much their own style and c) something about this style strikes me as distinctly European. I might be wrong about that last one, and I can't really pin it down to something in particular, but that's how I feel about it, anyway.
As usual, the hardest part of assembling this journal feature was not *finding* the artwork, but choosing and deciding which ones to display. So, same as with the others, this selection is a bit random, based more on my personal taste than anything else. I've included a few people from Ukraine or Belarus, as well as some whose nationality says something else but who obviously speak Russian. Most of the artists have done a lot more
Almost DDs: Volume 7I suggest DDs.Almost DDs: Volume 73 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It's a tricky business. You have to find a piece you're passionate about. You have to make a case that's convincing, but not begging or posh-sounding. I have had a few bursts of luck- 4 accepted suggestions, but the good bulk of my suggestions don't make it.
I realize that the GM have to make some tough choices. But I want to give my suggestions another chance, in case it was something on my end that was why they declined them.
And I still felt they deserved a feature.
As a note, a few pieces this time (again) are not eligible for DDs because the artist received a DD on a different piece after I suggested it.They'll have *s. Some of these pieces are also pending suggestions, but if a GM sees multiple suggestions of the same piece, I think it ups the chances!
So, without further ado, the Almost DDs, Volume 6!Please show these artists some love, and if you really love a piece, suggest it as a DD!

Write a story. It should be at least 1000 words but no more than 2000. It can be a vignette or a short story. It can be any genre. It can be any POV. Hell, it can even be in 2nd person!
It can't be that easy.
You can't use any adverbs.
Remember where you are.
Lolwut? No adverbs?
There are many types of adverbs and uses; the following information is a quick overview. Read through that and then I will explain further what I am looking for. I RECOMMEND YOU READ THE SOURCES LISTED BELOW because I don't want to just copy-paste from them and they will explain more in-depth than I want to get into here; this is a prompt, not a workshop.

Four thousand words.
All prompts are live
Here's what's gonna happen. I will list four prompts, one for each week of this month. Once a new week starts, the prompt for that week will be posted. Since I've been rather word-count heavy lately, we're taking it back to Flash Fiction. Because the prompts are going to be fairly simple compared to the past, I will be attaching a difficulty to each one, mostly to help you avoid leaping toward to most obvious initial ideas. Read on...
MAKE SURE YOU FAVE THIS JOURNAL AND WATCH FOR THE WEEKLY UPDATES!
April 3-8: A character does not want to go home.
Difficulty -- there's no abuse waiting for them when they get there.

DESCRIPTION OF HOW YOU LOOK LIKE: Long, neck hugging black hair, tanned skin, warm light brown eyes with amber flecks. Usually wears form fitting dark shirts with a white and blue patterned sweater overtop and lighter colored jeans with either hightops or bare feet. Wears a silver chain bracelet around his left wrist and has a silver stud in his left ear to match. He has sharp canine-like teeth, and his hands resemble paws, though they retain the general human shape of five fingers. His ears are also more animal shaped than human, and are lightly furred with black and orange. There is a strip of black fur down the nape of his neck that follows the curve of his spine and ends at his tailbone, where it meets with the black and orange tail. However, the colors are blended, so it looks like an aging red foxes tail.

hard cold advice from a fandom artistJust wanna share this awesome list that had been written by Euclase (http://euclase.tumblr.com, but the actual post already deleted) These are trully wonderful list of the truth^^, i kuddos u Euclase bb for your analysis n opinion coz some of them are ironically true:hard cold advice from a fandom artist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I love fanart. I think it's fun. I think it's a great way for someone to learn skills and build confidence in a relatively safe, amateur setting, but sometimes it's not sunshine and butterflies. Fanartists, because of the very visible yet niche nature of their work, are destined to encounter shitbags on the internet.
Since I've been sharing fan art online since 2002, I thought I'd type up some notes. This is just my experience/angle on things, so ymmv.
1. People will steal your art.
The difference between fanart and regular art is that it's recognizable by subject, and since you don't own the subject, everyone will assume they have the right to it. They'll put i

Hello Hello everyone,
It seems high time we had a little event to spice up life in the academy. As it is very close to easter, we have discussed and decided on a egg hunt. Every few days, a new egg will pop up somewhere around the group.
Of course, we will give you riddles to help you find them. You must fill out this form http://black-labrador.deviantart.com/art/AA-Easter-Egg-Hunt-291238781 .
Place each egg in the small boxes, in chronological order. At the very end you will need to draw a picture of yourself with all your eggs. All six of them must be present. And so you dont cheat, each egg looks different. (Maybe some bunny ears would go nicely of course, thats completely your choice)

one thing i notice is that different people like my art for different reasons. generally, the more girly, pinup-like artwork gets the most positive feedback, while many others feel that i draw too much of that and should branch out to other things. some people enjoy my sketches a lot more than my finished artwork, whereas others really enjoy the more polished stuff. of course, that's normal, everyone has different opinions and taste.

And that Dante Basco (the voice Zuko), older brother voiced the actor of Zuko in that episode also?
