The midnight hour is close at hand . . .
Creatures crawl in search of blood . . .

You decide what happens when darkness falls!
Is it macabre? Is it fantasy? Is it emotional?

It doesn't have to be dark or horror/macabre,
but it must be very clear that

Full blog and details found here: http://dreamorchid78.deviantart.com/journal/Back-with-a-bang-and-CONTEST-303007033
Remember deadline is July 18th so almost one month away.
The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game.
Cliodhna CompetitionTwitter!Cliodhna Competition3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Celtic-Art as their own Twitter Account, to satisfy the social birds amongst you. Please be sure to follow us! CelticArt_dA and our hashtag shall be #CelticArt
Celtic-Art group is more than a year old, and with 200 members, I think it is time we held our first ever competition. Even though it is called a ‘competition’, I would like to encourage everyone to participate and view it more as a creative and artistic challenge.
I have selected the theme of the competition to be the goddess Clíodhna. Probably a lesser well known figure, which means many of our members will get to learn something new (myself included) I have had no objections or other suggestions around this theme, so I believe we shall remain with it.
Promote Yourself! :)Do you have something you would like to promote? Do you have a project that you would like to share? A contest that you or a friend is hosting? Do you want to advertise that you're available for commission work? Would you like to share all this with all our Members and Watchers?Promote Yourself! :)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well here is the place to do it
Promote anything you wish to promote, as long as it is appropriate
Share it in a comment on this Blog. We are going to try and do this every week. We realize that our Members and Watchers have projects going on that they may like to share with others, and we need a place for that. Our Affiliates can share their events, so why not all our Members and Watchers?
Anyone can promote their projects here, whether Member or Watcher. Just remember, make sure it is appropriate for general audiences. It does not have to be Fantasy or Sci-fi related. We are just helping to try to get the word out, hopefully this helps get some exposure.
This is your Blog, so use it wisely

I am holding my seventh annual coloring contest from the start of June until September first. This year is special because not only are there great prizes and several ways to win something, but I have six sets of lines available for people to color. Special notes about the contest include the following:
The grand prize winner will get art supplies, enough points for a three month subscription, a dA T-shirt, art requests, features, llamas and more.
There is also a prize given out to a young artist winner, which is someone who is fifteen or younger.
Other prizes will go to a popular vote winner, and a first place winner for each line art.

First off, I want to thank our brilliant members who voted to use Gray, Turquoise, and Pink as this contest's sub-theme. I was very worried we'd end up with easy colors to work with.
You all took on this challenge WONDERFULLY.
And the winners are...
In The Judge's Section:
:iconlauviahn: with Each Uisge
This is just an astounding piece no matter how you look at it! The use of our color restriction was brilliant and wonderfully incorporated. Congrats on first place!
:iconpirawth: with the Gorgon Medusa
Another brilliant piece -- this time with tons of detail. We never thought we'd get to see Medusa look so fierce with pink accents. Great stuff!

New Pony Prints coming every week~Hello! o/ My reign has started!!(?) I'm pretty much completely back on my feet now, the only thing I cannot do well is run/jump/hold myself up. But I have been doing a lot of sitting on my ass making art. ^u^ dNew Pony Prints coming every week~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last year I made a lot of very bright shiny pony prints. I'm working on new ones this year, and they are actually turning out vastly different.
They're not quite as bright before.... which is what I actually liked about my art. It's weird. I was getting a lot of critiques on my style that I need to learn to "shade properly" and "tone down the brightness", and I've tried it, and I don't like it. Can I go back to the old way now?
I might really go back in on these and play with the colours. But feel free to let me know what you think!
All that being SAAAAID~~~ here's a closer look at some other things and when I plan to post them!
Every Saturday, I'm going to post a new Pony print, and at the same time take the 2012 one out of storage (since I know lots have been asking abo

Right now I just uploaded number 5 and I already learned so much about colors, composition and lighting.
Facebook is the first place where I upload these studies, without a title, there people can guess what movie it is from.
The first person with the right answer gets to choose the new movie.
So this contest wont be easy on you guys. But let me lure you in with a great price!

Japan Expo Paris and LFCCFirst off can I say wow, what a warm response the Aussies game me! Supanova was so much fun, as was exploring in and around Sydney, my apologies for bringing the weather with me thoughJapan Expo Paris and LFCC2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last weekend at Q-con was a much quieter affair, it was appreciated after all the traveling, Northern Ireland was chilled and my panels went down a treat I'm glad to say. At the airport I found the most hideous fridge magnet to add to my collection of hideous fridge magnets from cities I've done conventions in. When she checkout girl told me it was "Only £2.59" as it had no price on it, I said in my head, and accidentally out loud an amused "what a bargain" to which she looked at this hideous thing and then gave me the most bizarre expression. I laughed, then tried really hard to stop laughing as she handed me my change. It was brilliant and I will think of it each time I look at my magnets wonky beauty.
So onto the important stuff: This weekend!

Art theft is not a crime - say NO to copyrightToday, a DD was awarded to a nice acrylic painting (below left) which was painted from my photo (below right) -Art theft is not a crime - say NO to copyright2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just about the only thing I don't like about is the strong cyan tint, which seems to be more associated with the photo of the painting rather than then painting itself. Overall it's definitely one of the best derivative works I've yet to see based on my photos. I really enjoyed exploring how all the little details differed between the two.
Rpriet1 did not ask for my permission, or inform me of using my photo. A DA gallery moderator just messaged to ask whether I would like the deviation removed, and the DD revoked. I think most artists who've had their work "stolen" would be outraged, but for me the answer was a very unambiguous no. This is a complicated issue, and I think that the vast majority of the readers will disagree with me at this point, so let me explain my position carefully.
The concept of intellectual property, the way it ex

To be creative is a way of thinking. When you observe what’s around you, what are the things you pick up and store in your memory?

This was an image of the 2013 World photography awards.
I’ve just shown it to you for about 10 seconds. What do you still remember from it?
The pigeons that fly around? The fact that these pigeons were white? The notion of all the Blue in the image , so well in the building as in the clothing of the women. Or did you remember the two kids that seem to be the cause of the birds fleeing the scene.
Someone with an interest towards architecture probably lingered his eyes at the building and recognized it’s style culture and perhaps knows of it’s build method. While someone with an interes

Attention NeededDD-Catalogue needs a higher folder limit!Attention Needed3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Currently deviantART imposes a limit on the number of folders/subfolders allowed in all group galleries.
Unfortunately, this means DD-Catalogue can't keep up with the number of new folders created in the main dA gallery.
We feel, as a paying supergroup, this limit should be raised.

This past year was a big year of change as many things I had been hoping to have come to fruition actual did. I had set many goals that i wanted to achieve and I nailed them all without exception. Thank God.
Some of my major accomplishments were:
Renovation: I renovated my condo all by myself. I did two washrooms and the kitchen floor as well. I installed toilets, sinks, a dishwasher, tile floor, lighting, baseboards, sanded, painted, and polished. The biggest hassle was once I finished the shower floor I had realized there was a problem with it, necessitating pulling the whole floor out! All my hard work destroyed, but I didn't lose heart! I redid it much better than it was and learned a bunch on top of it. I was always scared of tile work, but I conquered my fear!
5th Capsule: Years and years in the making. This was quite possibly the biggest risk I had ever taken in my life. I had saved a bunch of money from my work on Wonder Momo
