coming outokay soooo, it's time to stop hiding! i'm transgender and over the past year i've been transitioning and i'm sick of keeping it all a secret. i'm on hormones now so i figured now is the time to come out. i'm going by Sophia but Sophie for short is fine.coming out3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
i don't really feel proud or confident or anything, it's a nightmare, but maybe i'll get there one day. hopefully things will get better, i finally feel like i have some kind of a future instead of a void of misery or whatever for the rest of my life. this has been a long time coming.

Did You Know - Manage DeviationsManage DeviationsDid You Know - Manage Deviations8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Especially when you have quite a lot of artworks in your gallery, it can become tricky to manage your deviations and to sort through them.
That's why we have the manage deviations page. You can either access it via the direct link or by choosing "Manage Deviations" from the Submit Menu.
On that page you have listed your deviations & journals. The overview will give you the name, the category it was submitted to, the publishing date and it also lists your sharing options and if critiques and comments are enabled or disabled.
When hovering over your deviation title, you will also get a little preview of that deviation. This helps to know what deviation you are going to edit, when you can't remember what title goes with what deviation.
I am an art thief...Hey peeps!I am an art thief...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Any of you who follow my journals know how passionate I am about pursuing the seemingly endless procession of art-thieves that pop up with increasing regularity. I was recently directed to this website, I Am An Art Thief/Plagiarism Exposed: http://www.iamanartthief.com/
I'm putting this out there so those not in "the know" can educate themselves and, even more importantly, so that any of us can easily report these people when we stumble upon them. No, these aren't the art-police but, in my 20+ years of experience in dealing with these types, I've found that public exposure is the best tactic. Cockroaches HATE the light. Just be sure that if you're planning on outing someone have your evidence ready to go. This isn't a witch-hunt against people copying someone else art in an attempt to learn or for mere enjoyment. It's for people copying someone's art, claiming it as their own, and/or

Online Figure Drawing AidsIf you're like me, you might have gotten lazy when it comes to practicing figure drawing. Sometimes it's difficult to find decent photos to reference, to do gestures or otherwise, so it's easy to do a couple drawings for practice then throw in the towel.Online Figure Drawing Aids3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, there are a number of sites out there that I've come across over the years that help with that sort of thing. They pull stock images and such from different sources and give you a randomizer and timer and other features, or show anatomical structures that you can manipulate. Below I'll list some of the ones I've come across that might help you. Some of them have the same images, so you can probably just pick a couple favorites.
An oldie but goodie. I've used this site for ages and it's only gotten better. On it you'll find 3D models of poses that you can rotate around, and they all show the musculature. You can browse the poses, or use the random viewer, or the timed v

"I've mentioned this before, however, that was a long time ago when I had less of a following and perhaps less of an impact.
When you tell a fellow artist "Oh I wish I was as good as you!" or say things like "You're so talented I'm just going to stop making art/killmyself/cry", you don't flatter them. At best, you're merely raising them up by putting yourself down and they don't want that. At worst, you are making them very uncomfortable or actively distressing them. Even if you think you're joking, remember that this person probably hears this very frequently. It's a sore point. They may have some kind of emotional response to it beyond irritation.
So, let's go over the basics:
Wow, you've got a lot of skill!
You inspire me to work harder to become as good as you are.
Oh, you're so talented, I wish I was as talented as you!
You're so talented, I give up.
Remember that your words have an effect.
Yes, thank you! W
[GUIA] Commission, Trade, Gift, Collab e Request!Ciao galera! :iconaboishappyplz:[GUIA] Commission, Trade, Gift, Collab e Request!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Estou aqui para fazer um guia rápido de comission, trade, gift, collab e request. Provavelmente você já deve ter visto alguma dessas palavras pelo Deviant e se você ainda não sabe o que são, vai saber agora.
Vamos preste atenção:
COMMISSION -> Significa comissão. É quando você realiza um trabalho sobre encomenda para alguém e este paga a você. Ou seja: Alguém te pede para fazer uma arte em troca de dinheiro ou points, o dinheiro virtual usado no DeviantArt. Existem muitas pessoas que praticam commissions no DA. Caso você esteja interessado em se disponibilizar para fazer commissions, lembre-se de deixar claro o preço do seu trabalho. O mais recomendado é que você faça uma tabela com um exemplo de uma obra já pronta e o preço ao lado de uma obra que você faria com aquelas características. Caso você esteja disposto a fazer rascunhos ou só lineart ou cores chapadas ou sem fundo apenas ou todo completo com fundo, deixe isso bem claro e os pre

So many artists underpricing...It makes me really sad.So many artists underpricing...8 months ago in Personal More Like This
When an artist you want to commission finally open their commissions back and all of their slots are taken in less than a minute.
And I'm sure all the slots would still be taken if the price was increased of x2-x10.
So many artists are still underpricing themselves. People make it a standard for art to sell for so cheap and whenever someone charge more than this standard, which is probably still underpriced, people complain.
By underpricing yourself, you are also contributing to keep the price standard of art low on this site. Charging low can be insulting to other artists, but also to yourself.
Please, don't ever feel like you need to underprice yourself, because of the fear of what other might think or say. You art is worth more than that. There will always be someone complaining, you cannot please everyone. Your time, the efforts, the skills you gained over years of hard work, is worth far way more than a few cents/points.
If you ever open your commissions an

Grimoires and the Unholy Invitationals of the Damned
Halloween entertainment… or invitation to evil?
Grimoire 2 by AndrewDobell
We all know from the movies that a vampire can’t cross over the threshold into one’s home without being invited. And yet simply knowing that Dracula can be held at bay so easily makes issuing that invitation all the more irresistible. Could such things as supernatural beings actually be real? And could there be ways for we mere mortals to have the power to evoke them into existence or dismiss them as we might pleas
