I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

Extra love to you if you want a Mias and Elle drawing too. I was so touched by how many of you wanted a Mias and Elle drawing last time ^__^ Thank you in advance.
I'll also be selling some very limited edition Bayou Arcanas too, pre signed and sketched for £15. I only have 30 copies to sell so get em' while you can! I'm not sure when I'll get the opportunity to buy more and make sketches in them again so these are going to be a rare sale
I'm sorry I've not had much time to answer notes and messages. I've only just come back from Kapow and my travels (OMG Blenheim you so perdyful!) and have a lot to plan for this coming weekend.
Swapping Moff and Flame for snow...Oh dear, things didn't go according to plan today. I was supposed to get one more page done before my holiday, but I had some emergency stuff to do in work as I'm away next week, so sacrificed my day off and a page of Moff and Flickerlee. Hope it pays off. Pitching an exciting new project at the moment and it's certainly cheered me up after a very unhappy week. But now it is time for holidays and snowball fights and hiking and Skiing!Swapping Moff and Flame for snow...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've had quite a busy evening of packing and sorting out insurance and double checking my bag is the right dimensions for carry on luggage. Why is travel so stressful sometimes? Both excited and scared about the Skiing, never done it before. I think I'm gonna become a human snowball at some point. Hehe! I think I'm most excited about the walking and the scenery of the Pyrenees! I always always wanted to see it and now it's finally happening!! Hooray!
Anyway. I'll be gone for a while but there should be a new page by next weekend. Hope you all have a

So yeah, I'm gutted. Really gutted as I'm relying on my comp for so much at the moment and that includes making my living.
Now I'm relying on my phone, which is how I'm writing this now. Bless ya phone.
My housemate :iconlookhappy: and other friends are being amazing trying to fix it for me, bless them too. So until that happens it's going to be quiet here and I was having so much fun with my markers. Ah, you'll be spared Mias's codpiece tied up with a bow so that's a blessing XD
art theft spread aroundhttp://vk.com/art.ideasart theft spread around3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I guess some of you might have already seen this in loish 's journal, but I think we should spread this around.
Basically, this community is using a BUNCH of artists' works (my has already been taken down, since I've asked and linked to it), but from those I've recognized the community still uses loish, andrahilde , Apofiss, andaglas and a whole lot of other DA artists' drawings for their purposes, without A SINGLE CREDIT.
They even make (made) magnets for selling using the works.
More of that, as I've been trying to contact the admins of this group, and I've been told that "Oh, don't worry, nobody was making millions using your work" and "Don't worry, there were only a few magnet sells and the community doesn't do it anymore blah blah". As I tried to make them understand they have NO RIGHTS for using other deviants' works whatever the hell they want without giving the original artist credit I got told that " I do never erase the artist
On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

Dressphere Contest!!Ok everybody! We had a big ol' discussion, and the majority wants dresspheres! BUT, some of you aren't familiar with Final Fantasy- SO, hopefully I can make this appealing to everybody and give you some ideas if you're stuck at all :3Dressphere Contest!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the rules!
You can draw ANY character from ANYTHING, anyyyything....any show, cartoon, comic, movie....you name it. Those of you who were interested in drawing Celestine for this contest, you can even draw her in a dressphere! That would be amazing!
So, it's not just Disney, or females! Guys and girls from anything you desire!
Also, you don't have to pick Final Fantasy X-2 spheres, you can pick anything Final Fantasy! Classes from Tactics, FF11, you name it- for example Red Mages, Green Mages, Monks, Dancers, Summoners, Onion Knight, Scholars- here is a huge list of classes to help you out!
So, in short, fit a character to a specific Final Fantasy class, and design a brand new outfit for them! You know, like I did for my Disney Girl
10 Top Tips To Become A Better Artistby10 Top Tips To Become A Better Artist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tip 1: Learn the Importance of the Sketch
Sketching is one of those things that every artist MUST do and do often. Sketches don't have to be perfect, nor do you have to show them to anyone. They can be as rough or as scratchy as you like but the thing to keep in mind is it's readability. The purpose of a sketch is to quickly illustrate or develop an idea you have, to capture or study some form of reference so that it can be worked on at a latter date. Because of this, the sketch only needs to convey the right information to you and you alone (unless you are drawing an idea out for a client then the message needs to be crystal clear).
Tip 2: Draw, Draw and Draw Some More!
This is a similar tip to the first but what I mean by this is draw anything that comes to mind or visually interests you. Sketch on the bus, train, in bed and even on the toilet. Seriously! The
ManlyCosplay Feature -BeardsThere is nothing quite as manly as fine facial hair. Many of the manliest characters sport impressive beards, and it requires a special kind of cosplayer to pull off such a character well.ManlyCosplay Feature -Beards4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are some of ManyCosplay's favourite bearded cosplays from our galleries!
Leonidas. Beard. Enough said.
Even Kratos' beard looks angry and aggressive.
Barret is known for his massive size, artificial gun arm …and his epic beard!
Hawke pimpin’s a well-trimmed beard.
What would Ezio be without his beard?
I don’t think I have to add any explanation for this one. Epic beard is epic!
Curly beards FTW! Also, an excellent cosplay of a classic series!
On sheer volume, you cannot beat this beard;
Ganondorfs beard is a classic:
Asuma knows scraggly beards.

2. Glee graduation/reunion (I'll do a graduation vs. 10 years later piece)

As of now, my brain is too fried to write up a proper journal entry about our volcano GARventure, and one of my usual event reports (as you can see on the right side of my journal) about Cosplay Mania, but I'd like to take this chance to share a part of our lecture of sorts at the Cosmania cosplay workshop last Sunday.

My friends might post the other parts, but for now here is our silly guide about posing for cosplay photos, and convention etiquette. The actual presentation was actually longer, and with lots more examples, but here is a condensed rundown of what we talked about, fo

Going to plan some community events for the summer so stay tuned
Now for the advice part
One thing I noticed with students, grads and even people just aspiring to make Art their "forever job" is that they are far too sensitive. Getting snippy when someone asks questions, points out technical flaws (no not your "style" excuse is going to cut it, if the anatomy is wrong and distracting to your work, that is a technical flaw).

One of the main Game Development tools out there for concept art, texture art, storyboard art, etc. Photoshop is a must have must know tool in the GDA world and is often one of the main programs installed at various studios. Photoshop has evolved from what it was originally (quite literally a photo editing tool with basic art skills) to a program a large
10 Reasons You Shouldn't Quit ArtYou know i keep my journals short, so i'll jump right to it.10 Reasons You Shouldn't Quit Art4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1. When you get an idea for a character, or an illustration or a comic, you can just draw it. You don't have to browse and see if anyone else drew it already, or commission other artists to do it.
2. If you get really good at art, your favorite artist might watch you back.
3. You might eventually get paid for it.
4. Because even if there's tons of art out there, and many great artists, no one, and i mean NO ONE can ever draw what you draw. There can be similar ideas, but only you can bring your particular flavor of art to life.
5. The awesome comments. The better you get at art, the more awesome and elaborate comments you get. Who doesn't want to get praised?
6. Art trades with really good artists!
7. Because quitting is lame.
8. Because when IRL people ask you what you do and you say you're an artist, you get the most interesting reactions. It never gets old.
9. Because you get to browse the internet a
