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
Need for ToleranceFrom Reddit:Need for Tolerance3 years ago in Personal More Like This
(This is pretty obvious so I didn't think I need to point it out but it seems that some people need to hear it: No, I don't think all religious people are like this. Yes, I do know these are extreme cases. But the point is that these are all recent events and we shouldn't live in a world where this kind of intolerance still exists. I've lost count the number of times that I've been harassed by Christians so the next time you see someone picking on gay people, saying atheists should be killed, don't be a bystander and just let it happen. Speak up. Stop a crime before it happens.)

I was going to be a Surgeon.
As a child, it was Veterinarian, but as I grew up I realized with my brain, I should use it to help people. How better to help people than to save lives?
It didn't work out. Second semester of ninth grade I started getting stomach aches. Sounds like no big deal but it was, as a kid who had never been sick suddenly getting out of bed in the morning was a challenge. I missed school. A lot of school. Fell far enough behind that for the first time in my entire life I was going to have to struggle to pass my classes.
Me—the child who got A's in her sleep—all because of some stomach aches. "They can't be that bad, you just don't want to come to school." But I did want to go to school. Problem was, insecure kid that I was, I started to believe everyone who told me I was making it up. I was a skipper, a delinquent.
Then it got worse. Grade ten rolled around and suddenly I have headaches, too. Migraines. Every day. To my frien

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 -Beards3 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.

What it means: A feeling of longing associated with displacement, but not necessarily displacement from one’s original home. An intense yearning to be somewhere you are not. Hiraeth also expresses a sort of ache or longing for something of the past, somewhat similar to the notion of "golden" or "good old days," but with more ancient connotations.
Why it needs to be a thing in English: I speak as someone from a country

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
Legend of Korra - rambling about Book 1SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T WATCHED KORRA'S FIRST SEASON.Legend of Korra - rambling about Book 12 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There's been tons of blog posts out there analyzing what Legend of Korra's first season did both positive and negative thoughts. There's a lot of praise (there was a pretty steady flow as the season went on) but also some scathing critique (largely due to the finale). I'm not even going to try to be comprehensive because I've already tossed out so many ideas as the season went on, and other people have already laid out essays on the thing. I just wanted to touch on some points of interest to me things I loved and hated about Korra's first season.
To be clear, I could make a similar list of things for any season of the original series. Furthermore, it is important to point out that the team only had 12 episodes to work with, spent TWO YEARS making the season, had to endure all kinds of fast-paced conditions we can't even understand, I'm sure and in general, none of my critique here is meant in any person
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 cosplay2 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
Devious Journal EntryDevious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: Thanks for the info on reindeer gender-antler technicalities. I did learn this in my teens, but I just kind of enjoy drawing the deer as white-tails like I did as a kid. I know it's incorrect, but the nostalgia factor is more fun for me. Merry Christmas fellow biology nerds!
When I was would little, my obsessive love for Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer would inspire me to draw Santa's eight reindeer to string together for Christmas decorations around the house. Even as a kid, I wanted some of the reindeer to be girls (it only seemed fair) and Dancer, Vixen and Cupid where always featured without antlers to show Santa didn't discriminate against the does!
So here's sweet-natured Cupid to wish you Happy Holidays! Have a wonderful day, everyone!

But it's more than that, isn't it?
You want to build them.
You want others to experience them.
We tell stories everyday in conversation, but how do we transform those into sequential art?
"Where on Earth Do I Start?"
Words, Words, and More Words!
In many ways, comics, that is, sequential art, resembles the art of film making. Every comic has it's own art design and "directing" style, right down to how the characters think and act. The art of comics has been closely linked to realms such as storyboarding and graphic design. Though the common lingo includes the term "novel" (as in graphic novel), the typical novelistic fashion of writing must be adapted for comics much in the same way it is reshaped for a screenplay. Comics don't only involve the thoughts and feelings of your character(s), but they also include specific actions to showcase these emotio

Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex MachinaOK, I think I've calmed down enough to write a review now. Spoilers ahead!Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex Machina2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, let's start off with what worked in the season finale. The animation was just...incredible, the action was exciting and sweeping in its scale, and Zuko's voice was reincarnated as General Iroh the goddamn determinator! which was actually kinda distracting, cause I kept expecting him to be like "I AM SO GOOD AT BEING GOOD!!. Hiroshi Sato showed his true colors as a hate-filled douchenozzle, and Asami showcased her usual class and determination when faced with truly shitty circumstances (on a side note, I've always had a hard time believing that Mr. Sato invented all those airplanes and mechas and stuff, because honestly, when we met him he kinda gave off a Henry Ford vibe, not an "engineering genius" vibe like that crazy eyebrow dude from A:TLA. But whatever, that's a minor point). And of course Naga was a badass...and according to tumblr, there are now people who ship Bolin x Naga. Just...why.

Please don't compare yourself to anyone but your own.
As long as we are improving from what we were, it means we are closer to the goal.
