Feature Friday #3: Tiny Life:iconhello1plz::iconhello2plz:Feature Friday #3: Tiny Life3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Hi everyone! Sorry for having this FF one day later again, but I am repaying you for this by making it way bigger than the previous two! In fact, it's bigger than both of the last two features combined. Yay!
Feature Friday info:
Feature Friday is a little weekly project seeking to feature beautiful art of all themes, but most importantly, bringing spotlight to unknown pieces and artists. Doesn't mean I won't include lovely popular pieces, but unknown artists are my priority. The project is open to suggestions on the next features' themes (or even pieces to feature!) Feel free to suggest any theme you'd like to see. In addition, if the theme will be one suggested by you, you'll get featured as a suggester.
Today's theme suggested by:
The Artist Behind The Lexus IS DesignThe Artist Behind The Lexus IS Design1 year ago in Official deviantART Contests More Like This
Robert Evans (PSAS), a longtime member of the deviantART community, has succeeded in making a radical artistic statement about turning artists' visions into actual realities.
Robert's pathway to actualization of his vision was facilitated by forward-thinking executives at Lexus who reached out to the creative cutting edge, to deviantART artists, for new revolutionary design ideas for the production of their 2014 Lexus IS. The Lexus IS Design Contest was born and dA's Robert Evans has come away with the prize: experiencing having his personal artistic conceptualization of how an automobile should look and roll become a real world reality. As Grand Prize Winner, the new Lexus built to Robert's design was debuted at the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas before 60,000 US and international buyers and then featured at the Los Angeles Auto Show before 12,000 industry decision-makers and 4,000 media correspondents from 50 countries.
help corner: EmoticonsWelcome to the help corner:Emoticons. If you have any questions about anything Emoticon related go ahead and send me a note. Not all questions have to be serious, I am looking forward to all kind of questions ;D The questions will be answered in the next edition of the help corner.help corner: Emoticons3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I had the idea for this News article when I recently went through the Tutorial list of Emotication. I normally send deviants to Emotication when they need help to create Emoticons. Now that I went through the list I noticed that many tutorials aren't helpful at all. It is "just" a list with very good but also very bad tutorials.
In the first edition of the help corner I want to share tutorials with you that I find helpful. These don't necessarily reflect my preferences in the emoticon creation process
Let me first tell you something about different shadings. Every Emoticonist has different preferenc

A mere eleven years ago, deviantART met its humble beginnings. Since that time, we've grown to be the world's largest online art community, but even a site as massive and established as deviantART had to start somewhere. We never forget those few small sparks that launched deviantART to be where it is today, and that's what we're celebrating during our birthday season.
For this year's community event, we're embracing the idea of starting small and creating something amazing from just a few quick sketches. We've started this work for you and challenge you to finish it with the pizzazz that only the best art community in the world co

There are a few issues with the Journal implementation, but there aren't any issues we can't easily fix. And we got so much great feedback, that we now clearly understand some things we didn't before. The best part is, we're going to get the best of both worlds for Journals. All of the benefits of the deviation system for Journals, with all of the resolutions that were vocalized as concerns.
Monday of next week, we're going to release the following changes so that everyone can SMILE!
When you go to publish a Journal, you'll be able to Submit your Journal to your Profile just as you did before the changes. The Journal will go out to your +Watch list, display on your Journal tab and on your Profile Page (if applicable.) There wouldn't be a +Favorite button unless you Submit to The deviantART Journal.

The Committed Canvas:icontechgnotic:The Committed Canvas4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tattooing has existed since the very beginnings of Neolithic human expression and has since those ancient beginnings continued to be a reliable flash indicator of personality type. There are those people who get tattoos and there those people who simply do not. Even though the social opprobrium for getting inked has greatly disappeared in recent years, and even though skin art has become almost boringly de rigueur amongst rock guitarists and other entertainers, there is still one element that separates the tattooed from the non-tattooed in terms of artistic appreciation: commitment.
Tattoos may be the first “interactive” art form. The art lover doesn’t just buy an artist’s artwork – he or she becomes one with artwork, he or she commits to becoming a living canvas for the artwork, he or she, by choosing the tattoo to be borne forever, shares authorship with the tattoo artist of the artwork.

Steve Jobs [ 1955–2011 ]Steven Paul Jobs, co-founder, chairman and former chief executive of Apple Inc., has passed away today. http://www.apple.com/stevejobs/Steve Jobs [ 1955–2011 ]3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
"When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: 'If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right.' It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know t

Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:

Random Emote Awesomeness - Volume 10Volume 10 in the series that showcases a random variety of emoticons: some old, some new, some by seasoned emoticonists, some by new artists. There's no real rhyme or reason as to which pieces are featured. Sometimes I pick a theme such as animals, other times it's just whatever strikes my fancy. Below are the current group of awesome emotes hand-picked by me (and sometimes a guest). Much like the title, this News feature will publish a bit randomly. Maybe weekly, maybe every third Thursday, maybe three days in a row--but hopefully at least once a month.Random Emote Awesomeness - Volume 104 years ago in Art Features More Like This

What is the History of Body Art?
:iconjzino: Long before recorded history, Man desired to express himself.The same pigments collected for cave painting would become the earliest body paints. Charcoal, Ochre, and Malachite were pulverized and kept in hollow seashells for the sake of art...
As we've learned in our previous articles, people view the definition of their art in different ways. Body Art varies slightly, but over all most of the definitions have been along similar lines. Here are some of my favorite responses:
How would you define Body Art?
