I featured first 50 people+12 people who were a little late. I wanted to feature all, but it showed me error, so I featured only 12. Enjoy in the feature and give these artists some love
Please fav this journal so these wonderful artists will get more attention, cuz they deserve it. Thank you
Ah, I'm going to write here last news too, so I don't have to submit another journal... Well...so you remember that we had a little problems with our official website (with portfolio). These days I decided to fix that...I completely changed look of our site, so now it works perfectly. It has a huuuuuuuuuge slideshow in the background (and it fits to all screens), so when you want to go in menu, you have to click a MENU button in top left corner. Our

Valentine's Contest - CLOSED A very nice turn-out with 18 entries. As there is some longer lit to read and judge, as well as some detailed commentary with the visual pieces submitted, judging may take a little while. We hope to announce the winners soon, but please be patient as there are so many lovely entries, it's gonna take a bit of time to decide the winners.Valentine's Contest - CLOSED10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In celebration of Valentine's Day (which is today) we are hosting a Relativity contest! Note, this theme is a bit different than our past contests, so be sure to read everything.
The theme is Romantic Love
Just what that means depends on you. Perhaps it's a shipping of two characters. Perhaps it's unrequited love where one side gives and the other doesn't reciprocate. Perhaps it's a tainted love that ends with screams and gunshots.
Who's in love? That's up to you, and you have TWO options:
One of your original characters paired up with one of the Relativity OCs.
An Argument for "Said"Preface:An Argument for "Said"2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before reading this argument, I want to explain that the following principle applies primarily to writings of the English language. Although it may apply to others as well, I have learned through the comments below that at least in German and Russian this principle is reversed. Therefore, this is a principle of culture and linguistics, and unless you are planning to write in English, you should look to writers of your own language before making any decisions on the matter. That being said, on to the argument.
An Argument for "Said:"
When writing dialogue, one of the necessary elements is the use of "dialogue tags," which identify who is speaking (hence their other name, "identifiers"). They're pretty easy to recognize, but just so we're clear, here are a few examples with the tags in bold:
"It's quite sunny today," she said.
"Release her, you fiend!" he roared.

Back Again?!http://casesplace.comBack Again?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently I purchased a three month premium membership to Deviant Art. After a great deal of positive feedback through using Get Watchers I've decided to put a little bit of money into my profile and do a lot more to get my work a little more attention. I've had premium memberships in the past and the features are nice so hopefully it'll get me using my account a little more often.
That being said Get Watchers has lead many people to me, and lead me to a lot of great works by other people on mediums I don't always browse. Below are a few favorites I've found the last week or so using Get Watchers to accumulate the 1,718 views I (without sponsorship) exchanged a few hours browsing art for.

e-mag WELCOMEe-mag2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hi there and welcome to the first installment of Home of the ARTist, the e-mag of %Daily-Deviations .
First of all, I, as the Founder of %Daily-Deviations want to apologize for several things.
I am sorry that this is published so extremely late. And I am also sorry that this is not as beautiful as it was supposed to be.
I hope you´ll be able to forgive us if you keep in mind that this was the baby of our former founder Jonathan. He left us, though, because he had to face some serious problems in real life and we can understand that he couldn´t finish this project anymore, and even though I am feeling sorry that I was not able to make it as good as he wanted it to be at the beginning I still hope you´ll have fun with our e-mag.
Anyway, here´s the e-mag now filled full of features from some talented artists that we know you'll enjoy.
Some of you may be wondering how we came up with the idea to cr

In Law of X: Fashion Quarterly (LoX:FQ), you can see our characters modeling various fashion styles ranging from seasonal wear, to cultural wear, and just about all other types of styles you can think of.
But in order to make this a reality, we will need your help!
We will be using a website called Kickstarter to fund this project. By pre-ordering, you can earn limited edition rewards such as a set of LoX themed postcards drawn by the lovely ~yooani, and original LoX pins by group founder =WikiME that won't be available at any other time. You will need an Amazon account in order to donate. Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing program which will only fund us if we reach our goal. Therefore, if we don't reach our goal, your money will be fully refunded to you.

Building a CharacterToday I'll discuss how to construct a believable character. I won't offer guidelines on what I personally think is awesome! But I'll offer what I've learned on how to semi-easily create a character.Building a Character3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First of all, the steps!
2. Visual References
3. Rough Sketches
5. Exercise Sketches
6. Final Drawings
Now for better evaluation!
When you build your character, build them from the inside out! Personality will define the look!
Do not make them perfect, people in real life who are perfect are hard to approach! Like I said before, try to make them imperfect! Error defines us.
For example, when you meet someone, if they are overly confident, you'll remember them! If they simply agree and nod, they'll be disregarded in your mind quite quickly.
Starting from the core. Your character's personality!
Go through a list of ideas.
Are they sociable? Or are they independant?
Are they stron
Project Educate: Fan Art vs. Official ArtDecember 7th: The Fandom MenaceProject Educate: Fan Art vs. Official Art3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Welcome to another article of the Project Educate series! Today is Dec 7th, and this day will revolve mainly around the community, aka the fandom, but we'll also have interviews, features and important info such as what we're going to learn about now: Fan Art vs Official Art!
Project Educate: Fan Art vs. Official Art
Fan Art vs Official art is one of the topics that generates most headaches within the community when they are not sure of the differences between them. Today I'll explain the differences between these two and hopefully ease your brainaches in the process .
In this case the definition of fan art would apply to both real Fan Art and Official art since both artworks contain material that is copyrighted to someone else.
Where's the difference, then?
Allow me to quote the ever so lovely $aunjuli again, for her definition of Fan Art will be key
How to become popular on DA- The troll methodHow to become popular on DA The troll methodHow to become popular on DA- The troll method3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Ive read various news pieces that people have made, regarding becoming popular on DA. Firstly lets define what popular really means.
According to the oxford dictionary, it means: liked or admired by many people or by a particular person or group:she was one of the most popular girls in the schoolthese cheeses are very popular in Europe
However, in the DA/ Real world, it means: To gain a large amount of page views and/or watchers. These watchers may be inactive, but who cares its the views that matter to you, yes?
If so, carry on reading. If you are above this, then stop right now.
