Covering August 2011 - Volume 6
Each month DeviantArt-related will roll out a monthly summary with features, interviews, contest details and updates concerning the deviantART related category here on dA. We run independently of any official dA representative and serve only to expand knowledge and open up the deviantART Related category. You may feel free to suggest something related to that category for feature, or an artist you feel represents something in that category well. All suggestions can be noted to bradleysays or DeviantArt-related.
The winner of the deviantART Poll BirthdAy Game (which was co-hosted by us!) was announced earlier this month.

Collection: Alternative UniverseCollection: Alternative Universe9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”
Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin

Valentine Heart ContestValentine Heart Contest7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Valentine's day is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate than participate in this brand new
contest encouraging you to literally see hearts in anything and everything. Inspired by Drew Barrymore's recently released Photograhy
Book called Find It in Everything — this contest challenges you to look beyond the obvious and find abstract heart shapes in everyday and ordinary things.
For an example of what exactly you're looking for, read on!
I found a heart at the beginning of the year whilst browsing shop aisles for a mirror. It had an imperfection, a tiny little heart on the bottom corner, but I fell in love with it anyway. I decided to take the collage approach and use two images to showcase where and how I found my “heart.” You can do exactly the same! Or you can have a singular image that shows a heart... whatev

No matter the digital end point or theatre of conversation, whether it be politics, war, privacy, pop culture, or the rise of machines – Drones or UAV's (unmanned aerial vehicles) are the current catalyst du jour in any number of flashpoint discussions.

Comic-Con: Day 2Comic-Con Day 2 was all about cosplay, fandom, and art, art, art!Comic-Con: Day 23 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you

Amongst the Elves and Fae
“Where is the breadcrumb trail of fairytales, and breath of mother nature? We have grown blind to ancestors and their lore, surrendered to fantasy what we believed before. Yet still we dream of elves and fae, of fluttering twilight sprites and lords of timeless halls; we long for lands where battles are won with bow and arrow, skies belong to eagles, and fields feel the flow of magic under the grass. How have we come so far, and how to go back?”

Is it better to possess a thing of beauty, or to experience the ultimate consummation of oneness with that beautiful thing by actually consuming it... and being left only with the memory of its beauty? Leave it up to our deviantARTists to think of a way to have it both ways – but left over as a feast for the eyes, preserved eternally on the digital planes of deviantART.

Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy4 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr

Fandoms bullshit and Doctor whoSo recently I have had a strong love for my fandoms HOWEVER!Fandoms bullshit and Doctor who3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have noticed that many people in the fandoms have become obsessive and really cruel to others. I find this to be really wrong. Why are people insulting and mocking people who love their fandoms? Many people try really hard to make art or music or stories for their fandoms and others rip them to shreds and make these people hate the very thing they really loved.
God forbid you join the Homestuck,TF2 or Hetalia Fandom. These three I have noticed are the cruelest to each other and other fandoms.
These fandoms should take some notes from the supernatural, Doctor who and Sherlock fandoms.
They are so accepting of other fandoms and each other that hell they became a combined fandom called SuperWhoLock. I mean come on! No other fandoms have really been that strong together! They take care of each other and respect each other so much.
Why can't people be more accepting and understanding and just love the others in the fandom and tr

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh
Can you feel me
When I think about you?
With every breath I take
No matter what I do
My world is an empty place
Like I've been wandering the desert
For a thousand days (oh)
Don't know if it's a mirage
But I always see your face, baby
I'm missing you so much
Can't help it, I'm in love
A day without you is like a year without rain
I need you by my side
Don't know how I'll survive
A day without you is like a year without rain (oh, whoa)
Whoa, oh, whoa
The stars are burning
I hear your voice in my mind (voice in my mind)
Can't you hear me calling?
My heart is yearning
Like the ocean that's running dry
Catch me, I'm falling
It's like the ground is crumbling underneath my feet
Won't you save me?
There's gonna be a monsoon when you get back to me, oh, baby
So let this drought come to an end
And make this desert flower again

S.Link Gearhead: Rank 1The number of TVs have increased drastically, no matter how much Vigil Tempus destroy them, they seem to pop up like weeds. And now mysteriously, large screens have been attached to the tallest buildings in each sector. It flickers to life and Gearhead's face appears on the screen.S.Link Gearhead: Rank 13 years ago in Personal More Like This
"You have all been deceived."
Flyers start falling out of the sky, fuzzy silhouettes of human figures that could easily be mistaken for Vigil Tempus.
"Verum was killed to be silenced! Kairos built us a fake world! We Seconds exist to correct it."
His speech did not last long before the VT disposed of the giant screens and collected the flyers in a flash within their respective sectors. Still one lands in your hands. What will you do with this information? Do you believe it to be true? Are you starting to doubt? Or is your loyalty to Kairos unfaltering as it was brainwashed to be?
Vigil Tempus soon set a high bounty on Gearhead without explanations other than it's a d
