The results of Draw Tom Ripley contest
It has been 4 and a half months since I started holding my first contest Draw Tom Ripley Contest which is a long journey full of new experiences. The origin is just an idea to cope with many deviants who kept asking me for points since I won 5,000 points from Plan Gone Wrong Contest last year. I told them to draw me Tom Ripley first and I'd give them some points in return. After I had got 2 pieces, I started to think "why not make it as a contest? It's gonna be fun."

An Introduction To Fine MetalworkingCommunity WeekAn Introduction To Fine Metalworking10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Co-written by melzika!
Fine metalworking is most often considered a medium for jewelry making, although it can be used for other works as well. Many artists have made wall pieces, sculptures, reliquaries, vessels, and other less traditional works with metals. Fine metal is a very versatile and exciting medium that challenges the artist to create beautiful works of art from something that, at first glance, might seem very hard, rigid and unforgiving. Fortunately crafters have been working with metals throughout history, and contemporary artists can still rely on the techniques of those pioneers to see metals in a new light - as soft, malleable and functional.
This article will introduce you to some of these basic metalworking techniques. This is in no way meant as a tutorial, and reading this article won’t qualify you to begin working immediately in metals. There are a lot of safety precautions involved in working wit

Please this article to spread the word
WHY IS THIS CONTEST BEING HELD?
This contest is being held to raise awareness of The Undershaw Preservation Trust (UPT). They are vigourously working toward saving Undershaw (the home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the writer of the Sherlock Holmes stories) from development and preserving it as Conan Doyle's home for future generations of Doyleans, Holmesians/Sherlockians, and literary fans of all kinds. Go to "A Brief History of Undershaw" on their website to find out what has happened to ACD's former home.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We are creating a montage of Sherlock Holmes fans showing their support for the UPT's cause. When the project closes (May 6th) the montage will then be sold as a print (not on DeviantART) and ALL profits will go to the future of Undershaw

Birds are fascinating creatures. Many of them possess incredible abilities. For example, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds migrate 500 miles non-stop with their tiny wings, and Chickadees are able to remember exactly where they stashed their seeds in up to a hundred hiding places for a month!
Several species are in decline and are at risk of extinction due to habitat loss, pollution and other reasons. See what you can do to help here: http://www.birds.cornell.edu/AllAboutBirds/conservation

Silver Soldering ToolsArtist's ToolboxSilver Soldering Tools1 month ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Silver soldering is one of many different types of soldering, and is a commonly used technique in jewelry-making. There are many different tools that can be used for silver soldering - I will go over the basic tools that I use in my soldering endeavors, but there are certainly a lot more than I will be able to cover in this article!
The first and most obvious "tool" in silver soldering is the solder itself. Silver solder is just that - it is silver alloys that are specifically created to melt at certain temperatures in order to be perfect for varying soldering jobs. The silver solder that I use comes in sheets & is cut into small chips in order to be used. There are different 'levels,' if you will, of solder - most commonly called Hard, Medium, Easy (and I sometimes use Extra Easy).
The difference between the 'levels' is the temperature at which they each melt. Hard solder melts at the hottest temperature, and Extra Easy at th

My 2 cents about educationON THE SUBJECT OF SCHOOLS, I FELT COMPELLED TO CHIME IN. If you can afford an expensive school then take it if you like but if you can't then obviously don't go to an expensive school. Just like you wouldn't buy a car you couldn't afford.My 2 cents about education1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The best thing about the "good" schools are the students because when you hear a school is great everybody flocks there, including many of the most talented... but notice I said "many" and not "all" the most talented.
"Superstars" can come from city, any shape, any color, ANY AGE. We've seen it many times before.
The best way to cultivate talent is to interact with other talented or potentially talented people. It just makes us all work even harder. I had the great fortune of being in the same school and year with Pixar's James Robertson, Dani Strijleva, Ben Su and John Lee. And these are just a handful of the very talented people from my year. Just by being in the same class, this has influenced me to work harder than ever when I really didn't w

a few years ago, someone from real life asked me what deviantART was; i responded with, "home." and it was. it was the warmest home i had because i met beautiful, wonderful people who made the ugly i felt becoming me, less ugly. beautiful people who have now ripped me into absolutely miserable pieces and have had no problem leaving me behind unanimously.
but the souls i met here, the souls who somehow connected with my words, saw what i didn't even see in it and found it beautiful enough to remember, i cannot tell you how much i love you all for it. i have a folder of all the comments i ever received in the past and it makes me outright happy to know that even in a little, seemingly trivial moment, i made a difference in someone's life. it sounds cliche as hell but i don't care because it means beyond much to me.

Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
