If you like this article, please add it to your favorites to help spread the love for the art and artists within.
A month ago, I posted a poll asking my watchers/visitors to show me 3 artists they felt could use more love. They *were* allowed to pick themselves, too. Anyhow, the response was so large that I have to break the feature into two parts. To see the original poll, click here.

Biweekly feature vol.1Hello everyone, I'm very happy to present the very first of the manyBiweekly feature vol.12 years ago in Art Features More Like This
feature journal. I'll be doing this every 2 weeks so this will allow the
feature art work to get a decent amount of views.
The feature journal is where I'll be posting some art works from artist
on DA that you guys suggested that don't have many views or favorites
and that deserve more. For the feature journal I have picked suggestions
for different category to make it more diverse.
Again, thank you allfor posting suggestions in my previous journal, sadly space is limited
so I will not be able to feature all the suggestions.
For the next feature,
If you have a piece from an artist that you really like and feel like
that they need some exposure, wither its photography, Crafting,
Painting, Drawings,etc please post below. Please make sure that they are
legit (not stolen art) and has below 1,000 faves.
without any more delay Lets get started : )
Toothless Pattern and Tutorial = FREE!.:NEWS:.Toothless Pattern and Tutorial = FREE!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, so after thinking about it for a while I've decided to just upload my Toothless pattern up here for free! Why? Because I'm technically doing something illegal if I sell the pattern cause I'd be making money off a copyrighted character. And while the chances are slim that Dreamworks would come after me, I don't want to take that chance. So! I'll just be posting the pattern here and uploading a tutorial with it. The pattern is for the full 3 foot plushie, so it'll make the same size as the original. The pattern is able to be printed on normal 8 1/2 x 11 paper, but a few pieces will need to be pieced together because they're too big for a single sheet.
The pattern is all done being scanned and formatted, but the tutorial's taking a bit longer than expected. But the tutorial will cover all the steps needed to make the Toothless plushie. But be warned! This pattern is for someone so has sewn before and knows how to do it. If you have never sewn anything, I don't rec
FAN ART CONTEST - more prizes and first entries!The contestFAN ART CONTEST - more prizes and first entries!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Winter has always been a season which people either love or hate. No matter where we live we always have some strong emotions connected with it and a lot of them revolve around... snow!
Some love it, some hate it; some play with it creating snowmen, others do everything to get rid of it; some see it all year long and some can only dream about it.
Because of how many different emotions we connect with snow and how many uses it has it's a perfect theme for the promised fan art contest!
Your task is to create a fan art or fan fiction that will present your favourite character(s) interacting with snow.
Every entry should revolve around the "snow" theme. The more original you are, the better!
The work must be a Fan Art / Fan Fiction and it should be submitted into the Fan Art

Post your Gifts!
First of all, apologies for not being online as much as I should have been for this time period, you guys ;; I went on on occasion to see if there were any pressing notes, but for the most part this month has been super dead for me. Art wise, I haven't drawn anything in forever. This was also my exam period-- and I was working on a lot of essays and such. When there weren't essays, then it was worrying and packing for my 20 + hour flight home. Now I'm finally home, and a day late to announce the postings! I'm sorry I didn't send out reminders-- but I do believe you all should have had this date marked down regardless! It IS a rather important date :0 So remember-- from the 21st to the 28th, you will do these three things:
1) POST YOUR GIFT to DEVIANTART.
2) Send the person you were drawing for a note-- It's their christmas surpri

Within the thoughts of my mind
Lost in my thoughts
It's like a maze
Paralyzed in thought
There's no way out
Of this prison I call my head
I want to scream
But my mouth is glued shut
Scared to speak out
For fear of consequences
So I confine myself
In a brain of vast immense's
There's no way out

Before the discussions grew into debates, I was already blocked from the group by the founder.
Though I do not agree with her views and am disheartened with how people look at us, as WMV photo-manipulators, she does reserve the right to how she wants to run the group, as highly unfair as it may seem. I see this is starting to grow more and more personal toward her while looking at the comments in the group, and I'm not very fond of it. ):
I find the reason why I am upset is NOT because we are so easily cast aside (though still upsetting), but because we are hardly considered 'art' now. We are talent-less with no skill and have put no effort into our work in the eyes of some. Why? I don't know. There is potential in all of us, no matter what genre. There is digital art that I would hardly consider 'skilled', but that does not mean I would ever decide, based on a piece that I did not enjoy, that all digital art is unac
How I made my way out of the Loser TrapHey guys, I feel the topic of productivity, balance of work and life and other such things vibrates these days, as quite a few people whom I follow wrote something about it, so I thought I'd bring to your attention the quotes I found most resonant for me (and some personal thoughts, too, that I'll share below):How I made my way out of the Loser Trap9 months ago in Personal More Like This
From Hannes' tumblr post about the recent changes in his attitude towards art (very much worth a read by itself):
I know how this sounds from the guy who used to be all about drawing all day, every day, but I’ve started doing other things. First of all at some point your health will politely ask you to start working out, taking away about 8 hours of your week. You’ll start eating better, cooking more fresh stuff, costing you maybe another 5 hours. I also play both handball and volleyball, both adding up
