Here's the feature of my deviantARTSupporters group.
But not that ordinary feature...
I decided to show you only BEST works.
Which means: technically perfect, interesting or just original.

Life can be wonderfully crazy if you let itNow that the holidays are upon us and the new year is just around the corner, allow me to give you a little positive life advise.Life can be wonderfully crazy if you let it7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Take a chance.
I know, it's such a lame advise you hear all the time, but it's only recently I realized that's what happened to me. I used to have such a shitty lonely life because I always said no to everything because I was afraid of people. The few times I said yes and went to parties I was uncomfortable and always ended up leaving early.
Then I was offered to be a guest at a convention and I was very close to turning that down too. Just the thought of either sitting at a table and nobody caring or too many people caring and flooding me was terrifying.
I ended up saying yes, and when I got there it turned out to be the second scenario. I was sitting in a ridiculously hot room over an indoor swimming pool and a wall of faces and arms around me asking for autographs, wanting hugs, taking photos, and all talking to me at once. Any of those people can c
Tutorial Tuesday: CompositionOkay so you want to make a an amazing piece of art, and despite the fact your anatomy and perspective is great, the art just doesn't look right. Why does does your art still not look amazing? It may be the composition.Tutorial Tuesday: Composition2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who are new to art or the concept in general, composition is how you arrange or compose the subjects in your drawing. Believe it or not, regardless of how well you draw the composition can make or break the art.
There are alot of ideas and theories in composition, not all apply at all times, so I'm not going to bog you down with all the little details, and just focus on the 4 major composition concepts I use in my own art. Ready? GO!
1. NOT IN THE CENTER.
(and no horizontal or vertical lines either)
I lump these two together because its everyone's instinct. Every kid does it, and every adult who isn't told other wise does it. Everyone always wants to put the subject of the art smack dab in the middle and use all vertical

Some people only seem to care about numbers. Watchers/llamas/views/ the like. Those are important and lovely, but not just by them self.
Here are a few simple ways to get more involved with the community.

Tutorial Tuesday: Comfort ZoneSo I'm going to be trying something different here on Tutorial Tuesdays. I see a ton of tutorials out there on Deviant Art and Tumblr on how to draw. 99% of them are great, but i noticed something: They're all about the same things. You can find a dozen or more tutorials on how to draw faces, or hands, or bodies, or any of that stuff, and most of them are great. So I started thinking to myself, "why do I want to do tutorials about things other people have already done?" Unless I can add some insight to the process I haven't seen before, or contributing anything new, I might as well just refer people to the tutorials that have come before me. It would save me time typing these up, and you'll get the same benefit from it.Tutorial Tuesday: Comfort Zone2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So from now on Tutorial Tuesday is going to be about things I have never, or very rarely ever seen a tutorial on. Thats not to say I'll never do a tutorial again on how to draw faces or hands, but I'm not going to do it un

On Sundays by *begemott
A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will produce a movie based on a drawing (“sweet Halloween dreams”) by deviantART digital artist begemott. The drawing depicts a tiny teddy bear with a tiny wooden sword and shiel

200 of them actually. *epic eyebrow movements*
Anyway the point of this contest (no pun intended) is to Draw my OC Universe!
I decided that she WILL in fact be my main OC and I would enjoy some more art of her *A*
She must wear some sort of long sweater. (She doesn't exactly wear pants XD Just the over-sized sweater and a pair of flats)
You can draw her using her powers if you wish (Light and dark/ Moon and sun manipulation. Basically she could hold the moon and the sun in her hands if she wanted too)
Keep her smiling and happy! Universe is one of those sweet and sensitive people, and she only gets sad when something dies or she feels like she has no purpose.
Don't forget her nails are painted blue!!!
Her hair is DARK
College LifeI don't really talk too much about my daily life on dA since I didn't want to spam everyone with constant horror stories of my time in the kitchen (which is why I do that on fb https://www.facebook.com/FisheyePlacebo/photos_stream instead) but today, I would like to share some of the extra "special" moments during my college life (even though I graduated already).College Life1 year ago in Personal More Like This

When life gives you pears, cut them into ducks and bake them into pizza~
When the Occupy movement swept through campus, make sure the fridge participates.
When assigned to go to a museum for Art History, take detailed notes of the kinky nipple biting eagles.
When roommate cooks something that cannot be described with words...
When the new apartment sink rage quits...

The Love that Binds SDCC's Artists' Alley.If you participated in Artists' Alley this year on the floor of San Diego Comic-Con, in the far left corner of the Con by Hall G, then this is a journal especially for you. It's also a journey for readers, or members of deviantART who want to get a glimpse into something incredible deviantART's community does each year.The Love that Binds SDCC's Artists' Alley.1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
The event this year was brilliant. We are so incredibly proud of every exhibiting artist in the alley. And today, we're just as war-torn and beaten up from all the action as you are. This is my first productive cycle on our first day off in a few weeks. I probably should be doing what I imagine our other teammates are doing, relaxing! Instead, my heart is pounding, my mind is racing, my jaw clenching at times. Some things just need to be said and I can't rest until they are.
We're also proud of the patrons who visited Artists' Alley and either spoke with artists about their projects, commissioned or purchased illustrations, comic-books, etc. and supported the ~200 artis
Describing your CharactersDescribing your CharactersDescribing your Characters2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
As writers, one of our primary goals is to bring characters to life in the readers’ imaginations. To do this, a character needs two things:
1) A personality.
2) A physical appearance the reader can imagine.
The first is created through characterization, and the second is said to be done through physical description. While both statements are true, what I’d like to discuss is how physical description needs to do more than just craft appearance, and more than anything, it's characterization that contributes to vividly imagined characters.
Take a look at the following example.
1) When I entered Mr. Smith's office, he stood and smiled at me. He had a big nose, brown eyes, and short, brown hair. He wore a dark suit. I shook his hand.
What do you know about Mr. Smith from this brief scene? The physical details I’ve given say that he has a big nose, brown eyes, and short, brown hair.

About Artists on Writers
Writers will always find inspiration in the visions of artists, always feeling compelled to tell the stories behind the moments captured in artists’ unforgettable images,
Artists will always find inspiration in the words of writers, always feeling compelled to lend visual reality and habitat to the characters described in the scribe’s haunting words.
I was inspired to create this series by naikki while looking through her gallery of diverse artwork and reading through her journals which are focused on her favorite inspiring writers and thinkers. I felt certain there must be beautiful artwork in the form of portraits and tributes to these writers and their stories. I found most of naikki's choices of quotes to be
