Challenge: Journal Skin January (Sign Up)Journal Skin JanuaryChallenge: Journal Skin January (Sign Up)2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Journal Skin January is a challenge brought to you by bradleysays which involves the creation of journal skins.
The idea is to create a journal skin or gallery skin for every week in January. You will be given a generous amount of prompts to work with - these will include both words and deviations.
This means that participants are required to submit four skins in the month of January to successfully complete this challenge.
What prompted this challenge? Probably the lack of activity seen in the journal and gallery skinning community lately. It is a sad fact that most of 2013 was quiet compared to previous years. I want to start 2014 off with a bang.
December 9th: Prompts released. Participants will be able to start making their journal skins from this moment.
January 1st - 7th: Participants release their first journal skin.
January 8th - 14th: Participants release their se
Modern Elite CSS Contest - Premium Prizes to winHi fellas,Modern Elite CSS Contest - Premium Prizes to win3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A new contest is in the house! Yes, you have heard me right! A new CSS contest with premium prizes to grab for yourself is here for you!
You and I can see a lot of journal skins present in our DA's Journal & Gallery Skins category till date but we see only a few of them are modern style designs. As, many of you probably know that I mostly like modern design for my journal skins. So, I want you to go crazy with your own creativity and do the same for this contest.
Many of you might wonder, what is modern style web designs anyway? Please mind that I'm using the word "web design" here because journal skins in DA are nothing but web designs that we code in CSS. So coming back, a modern design generally..
1) has few colors
2) contains simple yet elegant images to make the design look smart
3) has all it's elements well arranged
4) has minimalistic touch (not always though)
5) includes high usage of typography

Let me tell you, picking a winner for this contest has been REALLY HARD. I love all the finalists so much, and for different reasons! I'm kind of excited that we ended up with such a great representation of talent across three media (manipulation, traditional, and digital!). All all three finalists had really interesting and pointed write-ups, too! I've been pulling my hair out the last few days trying to pick, but I have finally chosen!

So I'M IN THE HOSPITAL AGAIN LOLYeah... I know right.So I'M IN THE HOSPITAL AGAIN LOL3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was dispatched from the hospital January 25th, and I was doing absolutely fine. What pisses me off the most is I JUST went for my follow up appointment with the surgeon Friday - everything was perfect - and the very next day I got an infection. What the fuck.
When I started feeling the pain Saturday I pretty much freaked out. I was so angry. In all honestly I've probably suffered from more psychological trauma then any physical pain. After I went home in January, I was starting to feel bouts of paranoia; like I'm very convinced I'll have health problems constantly for the rest of my life. Because that's how it has been so far.
Just when I was starting to feel better and shake off the feeling of paranoia; right when I was starting to feel a bit better, this happened, and I needed to go back to the hospital. I was fucking furious, and scared; I'm actually at the point where I'm worried about my actual lifespan, just because I'm so paranoid. Not to mention all the

CommissionsI think i'll have to make this clear since I've been getting a lot of commission requests even though i said i'm not doing commissions OrzCommissions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I usually don't (almost never) do simple commissions .Since these days i'm always busy with my job and some other freelance i hardly have any time to work on my own personal works.
Anyway , i'm probably never going to do any character commissions.Unless you can give me an offer that i cant refuse >_<
Thanks a lot for being interested in my work.I'll still be reading any character commission request but i'm not sure if i'll accept them Orz
I'm very sorry if i'm being rude or disrespectful to anyone m ( _ _ ) m
EDIT--- There seems to be some misunderstanding in my post Orz
When i say i won't accept any commission request.I dont mean it in general. I was referring to simple request like drawing your favourite anime char, personal OC , etc. If its a business request like a game design, blog mascot, or somewhere along the lines then i might consider it >

Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this.
You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing,

The Good and The BadIntroThe Good and The Bad3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it's been a while since I wrote anything here. That's due to a number of reasons that I don't care to get into right now. But I had this idea last night while falling asleep, and thought it would be fun. I'll list the best 5 features dA has done over the years, and the worst 5 features. I'm sure I could spend months on this and refine it to exactly what I really want to say, but I'm gonna try to spit this out fairly quickly and just list things that first come to mind.
At least I think that's the term for this. Or is it Easy Reply? Way back in the day, version 4 or so, when you clicked the Reply button on comments, it would load the comment you were replying to as a new page, and you put your reply into the textbox there and hit send. But with quick reply, it opened right under the comment, quick and easy. I doubt many people remember those days, but that update was beaut
PE - The Beef with BasesWelcome to the Beef with Bases article. This may get a little controversial, so put on your heavy duty hats!PE - The Beef with Bases3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
By now, we should all know what a base is. But just for a refresher - A base is a bald, naked figure for people to 'doll' clothes onto. Lately, more people have been making animal bases as well. Some argue that since they can't be dressed up, they aren't proper bases. But a base is a vague term to begin with.
Why do so many people make bases? What's the allure? Many people just start doodling and end up with a body they don't plan on finishing. So why let it go to waste? They fix it up a bit and let other people use it, so maybe others will find inspiration where theirs left off. Other times people are inspired by a pose, and want to practice their anatomy and draw the body. Sometimes people even have an idea in mind - say... a big set of mermaid poses! And more frequently, people see a piece of art t

PE: The Basics of Giving CritiqueA lot of people seem to think that giving a critique requires you to have an art degree and a lifetime of experience. This is merely an excuse barrier to stop you from trusting yourself in the art of delivering a fine critique. Today's Project Educate guide is an aid to help you consider the basics of critique, and in particular critique on dA.PE: The Basics of Giving Critique4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This article has been written as a guideline overview only and one persons advice. There are hundreds of existing "how to" guides for critique already existing on dA, so if this one doesn't suit you, take a browse and see what else you can find!
The key rules to critique
1. Keep in mind you are writing a CRITIQUE not a CRITICISM. Be wary of your word choices and make sure you keep in mind you are helping the artist for improvement. Be Constructive, not Destructive.
2. Consider you audience- who is the artist reading this critique? How may they react to your words? Be wary of patronising the person you are c

Welcome to the deviantART related monthly challenges!
Each month you will be given a theme and two categories from the deviantART related gallery. You then have one month to create something for it. In which way you interpret the theme is up to you, but it has to be for one of the categories chosen.
For each category there will be one winner and one runner up.
Theme & Category
When working on your entries, try to be creative and don't just do the first thing you have in mind. Some categories will be more challenging than others - that's for sure - but maybe it's a good way to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Maybe you will like it!
Your theme for December is:

PE: 5 reasons to believe in yourselfSuccess is not a measure of how much money you earn or how popular you are, rather, it is being able to find your passion - one that makes you happy and ultimately, one that you would be happy to leave as your legacy. To make a step forward to reach your dream takes smarts and guts but why couldn't you? Here is five reasons why you can.PE: 5 reasons to believe in yourself3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Everyone was born equal
More-less, this is true, some people are born more challenged than others but we all possess skills and ability to learn. It is possible to build something out of nothing if we really want to. It all comes down to our preferences and decisions.
"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent."
2. Overcoming your fears
By constantly challenging yourself, you can get rid of fears that used to follow you. You will no longer be worried, you'll know you can count on yourself.
"If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you're right."
Project Educate - Stencilling lessons: MultilayersThe art of producing a multilayered stencil is one which can take a very lengthy amount of time. The vast majority of which is the time spent of cutting. This journal covers the production of the print outs which are then cut out and placed to be painted. I myself do use a computer to create the various layers. There is a great debate between many artists over whether the use of the computer takes a lot out of the creative process. I would argue in favour of that if one is simply using a photoshop filter to create a stencil. The method I will be outlining below is pretty much what that filter does; But it still leaves a lot of the decision process to the artist themselves. The program I use is gimp which is a piece of freeware which is fairly easy to use and importantly... FreeProject Educate - Stencilling lessons: Multilayers3 years ago in Personal More Like This

1. Person A posts a link to a deviation they want critiqued in a comment on this blog.
2. Person B posts a link to a deviation they want critiqued in a new comment on this blog. In addition, they critique the deviation of person A, and add a link to that feedback in their comment.
3. Person C critiques the work of person B, and so on.
So you always critique the person who posted a comment before you. If you don't critique this person or if you forget to link to that critique your own comment will be hidden!
Person A's comment would look like this: [link to deviation]
Person B's comment would look like this: [link to deviation] I commented on [deviation of person A][link to comment]
