@likeLucyArtists know that it's not always easy to portray emotions well through your artwork, but likeLucy seems to just get it. Based in the Philippines, likeLucy switches between surreal pen work with muted colors and beautiful vibrant paintings, and she is equally skilled in both mediums. Each piece of artwork featured is available as a Print, and would bring a new type of beauty to any room.@likeLucy1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

Know your Basics - PerspectivePerspective comes in different forms, the most obvious & basic of which is the use of the word in relation to the appearance of relative orientation in a three dimensional space. At first, it may seem irrelevant to photomanipulators, (because, hey, the photographs already are perspectively sound,) but putting more than one photograph in context requires that you learn to see what makes sense and what doesn't.Know your Basics - Perspective3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Technical Stuff
Perspective (from Latin perspicere, to see through) in the graphic arts, such as drawing, is an approximate representation, on a flat surface (such as paper), of an image as it is seen by the eye. The two most characteristic features of perspective are that objects are drawn:
Smaller as their distance from the observer increasesForeshortened: the size of an object's dimensions along the line of
sight are relatively shorter than dimensions acro
Starting with dA CSSBack when CSS was allowed for journals for the first time there had been only a few deviants like ClaireJones, Lilyas or kuschelirmel-stock who provided free skins for everyone. Through the time more and more people enjoyed working on CSS skins and we also got the chance to skin our galleries.Starting with dA CSS2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
These days, and thanks to the great resources about journal and gallery CSS that have been created, it is possible for nearly everyone to code their own skins and/or to share them with others. Still there are many people who struggle with some basic things, which is why we want to focus on some of them here.
Where can you use CSS/HTML
On deviantART you can only use HTML and CSS on your journals, group blogs, your custom gallery folders, as well as your groups' galleries.
When you customize your profile widgets you can't add CSS or HTML like you can for journals/galleries. All you can do is using existing dA code that can be re-us
Beware of Some Tutorials... This is just my opinion. I have to lead with that. Everyone is free to agree or disagree and disregard.Beware of Some Tutorials...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've had loads of people over the past few months ask me to create tutorials.
I never have. I'm not sure when I will, and I'll tell you why. Deviantart is filled to the brim with the most *awful* tutorials. And now that "Tutorials" have a priority category ( meaning they get to the front page every single time regardless of how many hits they get), some users have been creating tutorial after tutorial just to abuse that loop hole.
Thing is, I find a lot of these people who create the tutorials, have no business creating them in the first place o_o;. Some of them ( not all) aren't doing it to be helpful to the masses. Some of them are doing it to try to make one (to see if they can set it up, to see if they can make it interactive), or to see if they can use the exploit. Those people are not helping you.

I am switching gears as there are some great prizes - and I have to update the prize list!!
The contest is "Legends, Myths, and Fairy Tales". Each person can enter two pieces. Tell me a legend, fairy tale or myth- one of your own, or retell an old one. Change the ending of a classic and give it a new twist. Combine several tales at once - be creative. The two categories are literature (Poetry and Prose) and Digital Art.
Please send your entry by message here and put "Contest" in the subject line. Include the thumbnail. The description needs to have the name of the contest (Legends, Myths and Tales) and link to my page! All pieces must be new works. The new contest starts April 27 and ends June 30.

We have a bigger and better website now that breaks the list down alphabetically and shows images so you can better see what has already been identified. I will no longer be updating the list on the blog. Please visit the new site to view the list http://art4loveisafraud.com/index.html and we have a dedicated email for you to send updates to email@example.com. The site is still under construction, so not all of the images are up yet but everything should be up in the next day or two. Please give us time, this is a big undertaking.
I have a new journal entry you may want to read that gives helpful tips for searching for screenshots http://dlr4553.deviantart.com/journal/Tips-for-gathering-evidence-254817965#comments

Writers Welcome Wagon RevivalAre you a new writer to DeviantART and perhaps trying to discover what the Literature community has to offer to you? In getting started here, all of us realize how vast this community is and how easily one can feel mesmerized (and confused) by everything that this diverse website has to offer. In the past few years, the community has grown in size and if you are looking for a wonderful chance to get involved but not quite sure where to begin, this is the place for you! So on that note, my first question is: where are the writers?Writers Welcome Wagon Revival4 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
A Few Years Ago
The lovely GeneratingHype asked us to go in search of new writers and to bring them to his attention. Using his original guide as my inspiration, it is my sincere hope to revive this extremely helpful initiative. I want to bring some new writers into the mix and also give other deviants trying to find their unique niche within our growing community
It worked, you guys. Thanks! ;)So, I haz a cosy little rental flat in downtown Lyon, 5 mins walk away from half a dozen school-day friends, tucked away on the keys in a renovated 17th-century nunnery that's been converted to wee little appartments. Yay.It worked, you guys. Thanks! ;)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you for the postive vibes.
The results of the latest Poll are highly amusing. There's like a hair's breadth distance between the two options asking for the reveal of Jareth and Sarah's respective [assumed Dirty] Secrets. And the sexy vote beats the fluffy. Ahahaha.
And predictably enough with S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson showing up, the requests for a cameo by fangirl-favourite Loki are snowballing. (Aha. Snowballing. It's funny cos he's an Ice Giant. And adopted.)
Loki. God of Mischief. Multiverse-level troll.
Be careful what you wish for.
Stolen ArtworkGood morning all my fabulous ghouls!Stolen Artwork3 years ago in Personal More Like This
China Glaze has formally apologized, and have personally apologized to me - for which I am extremely grateful. They're now going after the so called "artist" who ripped me off, and have offered me compensation, and a job! So rock on China Glaze! And thanks to all of you guys for your support, and the flaming messages sent to the company. I really think that all of the outrage opened their eyes as to what happened, and that caused them to reach out to me. Way to go creeps! I <3 you!
Here is the earlier post:
I have some unfortunate news this morning - I was alerted that the beauty supply company China Glaze has mutilated a few pieces of mine - and some from other artists as well - to advertise their Halloween nail polish collection "Wicked."
This is upsetting, not just because it's a horrendously bad Photoshop job, but because they didn't ask for my permission, or offer any compensation at all. It's disgusting, and I'm pretty hot a

If with the rest I feel compelled
to try and write a villanelle,
spill my ink and break my pen
and do not let me try again.
And if like Keats I crave an ode
on Grecian urns or autumn roads,
break my fingers, steal my pen
and never let me write again.
With meter and with rhyming verse
I try to dress my humble words,
arranging them into sestinas,
change epigrams to terza-rimas.
And if I think I have the skill
to pen another kyrielle
come and smash this laptop screen
and never let my words be seen.

Mutiple Thefts of deviantART Stock Models: UpdatedCurrent Update, Feb 9: It seems that the artworks created with the DA stock models have been taken down from all sites. This is good news! I hope the artist will be in touch with the models they have used. It seems possible through what I've heard from these models in their research that this artist may have found these images on a 'free stock' site. Please be aware of any site that is set up with a huge variety of fabulous, high quality images for commercial use, for free. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.Mutiple Thefts of deviantART Stock Models: Updated2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Top 10 deviantArt faux pasOkay, so I made a poll on what annoys you guys the most and we haaave the winners! : D So there it is, a list of ten most annoying things on deviantArt according to you! C:Top 10 deviantArt faux pas3 years ago in Personal More Like This
10. Thanking for a favourite/llama.
This wasn't even in the poll, but many of you pointed this out. We all know what this means. Some people want others visiting your profile to know they will visit their profile if you give them a fav. There is sadly often no real "thank you" behind this, other than just fishing for pageviews. There's even an automatic "thank you" popping up now if you fav something, so there's no need to do that!
9. Drawing themselves all the time.
Okay, I must say it really depends. Some people do great series involving themselves (like Silent-Reaper's ATM series, I like it a lot), but others go seriously overboard. Drawing a new ID every week, drawing an entire series of comics with themselves as the "smart ones" within their crazy circle of friends... It just shows how much i
