MINI-CONTEST!Hey guys! Welcome to my Mini-Contest! I always wanted to make one, so here it is ~ \o/MINI-CONTEST!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You have to draw my character Scarlette, one of my OCs! I will choose the most original and creative drawings! And since I made her when I was like 5, I never imagined a personality for her, so you can draw her perky, shy, wicked or whatever you want, it's all about headcanon! XD
Here's a sloppy reference I very quickly made! If you want more drawings of her, send me a note! (Yes, her skin is LITTERALLY white like the snow xD)
(EDIT) Another less sloppy reference here! :
The winners will get:
1st place - I'll draw for you a full picture with 2 of your OCs!
2nd place - I'll draw for you a full picture with 1 of your OCs!
3rd place - I'll draw for you a full picture of your favorite character!
When you have finished your entry, please send it to my

A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
It has been a long time since we have had a contest, but we have some
Interview with *B-AGTInterview with *B-AGT3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Meet Fan-Artist of February 2013!
Tell us about yourself and you only been here for a whole year now, what is your biggest (and proudest) accomplishment? Like a time when you felt like you were right on top of the world
I’ve been drawing since I was little. I kept it as a hobby and draw stuff I like from time to time. Since I love Dragonball, basketball, I started drawing a lot sketches related to these subjects with traditional medium and kept it up for years. At first I just look at other artist's work to get inspired, now I really like the deviantART community and appreciate what I can learn from the community.
Well, I never felt like on top of the world^^, but I guess the biggest accomplishment for me is when others told me that I inspire and motivate them to become better.
What does "Art" mean to YOU? What about "Fan Art"?

Valentine Heart ContestValentine Heart Contest7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Valentine's day is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate than participate in this brand new
contest encouraging you to literally see hearts in anything and everything. Inspired by Drew Barrymore's recently released Photograhy
Book called Find It in Everything — this contest challenges you to look beyond the obvious and find abstract heart shapes in everyday and ordinary things.
For an example of what exactly you're looking for, read on!
I found a heart at the beginning of the year whilst browsing shop aisles for a mirror. It had an imperfection, a tiny little heart on the bottom corner, but I fell in love with it anyway. I decided to take the collage approach and use two images to showcase where and how I found my “heart.” You can do exactly the same! Or you can have a singular image that shows a heart... whatev

This one is way worse... Also the ACTA will restrict internet. NZ already has the system in place. I talked about it a while ago. The three strike system basically means your internet provider is monitoring what you do and will cut off your internet if they think you are downloading illegal materials.
By the way SOPA and PIPA aren't dead yet, PIPA is being voted on the 24th and SOPA has been delayed as far as I know.

Overcome your unfair obstacles.We all have certain obstacles that gives us the feeling of: 'This is so unfair!.'Overcome your unfair obstacles.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
To me it's one of the most annoying feelings in the world because in general we don't really know how to deal with it. One little part of us says: 'Don't whine about it, you are just being jealous.' the other part of you tells you: 'If I didn't have this obstacle or disability I would rule the world!!'
So you bounce around anger, sadness, hopelessness and envy.
If you were just sad about something or simply angry it would be a lot easier to deal with, you cry or you just vent a bit towards a friend.
But how to deal with he feeling of unfairness?
There are many things that can form this unfair obstacle for you.
Physical obstacles such as: MS, Lyme disease, Arthritis, Color blindness, missing fingers?
Mental obstacles such as: Depression, being a procrastinator (yes I'm naming it because it's a mental blockade that keeps you fro

I'm usually not posting personal stuff on dA anymore (see my Twitter for daily life babble), but there's something major I want to share with all of you.
Those following me for a bit longer might still remember that I was working towards my doctorate during the recent 2-3 years. Well, I'm done! I achieved my Ph.D. with A-grades and was awarded with MAGNA CUM LAUDE (latin for 'with great praise').
That means I'm now officially a doctor (not in medicine, if you might wonder)! How amazing is that?

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

No,no, I'm kidding. I will write it seriously, not like fairy tale!
To start, I wish a happy birthday to DA, 14th birthday! This is awesome! And yet, I will talk about my DeviantART story (like everyone else did )
The story begins there 3-4 years (I will say rather 4, because this year, in October or November,(I do not know ), it's my 4th years on DA).
I was initially on a website (unfortunately closed that day) called DragonAdopters.It is there that I've known a lot of wonderful people, and I do a lot of friends on this site. Most of these people had a DeviantART account, which is awakened my curiosity.
Myself, I already drew since childhood. (seriously, I started drawing at the age of 4-5 years, and since this passion has never left me.) And the period when I was on DragonAdopters I drew fanart of this site, including the following examples:

There is a special dA offer that expires on 26th December. If you give one premium membership as a gift, dA gifts a premium membership of the same value to you.
So I decided to make one of my watchers happy, and they can make their friend happy too.
I decided to give one lucky deviant a 3 month premium membership in the points equivalent.
I won't give you a premium membership directly, 'cos that would mean I would get one from dA myself.
I will give you 636 points (which is a 3 month premium membership value) and when you get it, you can buy your special friend a 3 month premium membership and you will get the same gift from deviantart.
So, that means two premium memberships, for you and your friend (:

Do you do trades? Not anymore really!
CAN YOU DRAW ME SOMETHING?? No sorry! Time is money
commissions? check my journals or the link on my profile.
How long have I been pixeling?
-Since late 2011.
How do you achive such soft looking shading on your pixels? Do you stick only to the pencil/fill tools, or do you utilize brushes?
Or do you just use enough colors to make it blend nicely?
-OPACITY there I spilled the beans countless times now.. opacity with the pencil tool. It just helps me finish pixels faster and keeps me in touch with my painterly-side lol.
I DONT USE THE DAMN BRUSH TOOL. JUST LEARN TO USE THE PENCIL TOOL'S OPACITY SETTINGS. ITS AMAZING...
smooths everything out. but leaves it pixelated. If you use the brush tool. im pretty sure its gonna look blurry
What program do you use?
-photoshop cs3, I suggest you learn photoshop cuz I love it/plus its free lol
What inspires you to make pixel art/ how did you get into pixel art?
