Happy late Halloween - Sweet and Sour FeaturesHello fellow deaviantsHappy late Halloween - Sweet and Sour Features3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Unfortunately almost noone answered to my journal where I was asking for
pic suggestions. Well - I've made my own choices anyways but yeah. Bad
luck for you I guess
So why is this article so late? Well yesterday was Halloween right? I
have been to a Halloween Party with two Friends, even though the
Halloween over here isn't what Halloween is over there in the US - no
children running around playing Trick or Treat and the Parties are kinda
lame as well, but we still had fun. I dressed up as some kind of Witch
and my friend went as Black Widow. Only our male compagnion wasn't
dressed up - but he came in for free since he knew the staff
Anyways - Here I goe with my late Halloween Feature. Please FAV the
article and show the artists some love or I will send someone to haunt
Atropa Belladonna Contest! Submissions Closed!Hey there The-Average-Alex here.Atropa Belladonna Contest! Submissions Closed!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So after the recent closure of the logo contest we, after looking at the poll we posted, decided that we needed to host a new contest.
So here is the Atropa Belladonna contest!
Atropa Belladona is the binomial name for deadly nightshade.
The theme for this contest is Flora (plants). Flowers, trees, fungi, grass... They all make up so much of this planet we live on, each type of plant has its own ways of growing, its own unique defence mechanisms and its own symbiotic relationship. Some are giant, some are small, some are edible whilst others are completely poisonous, we rely on them every day of our lives.
We want you to create a�piece�of artwork which incorporates plants in any way shape of form. They should be the main focus or feature, or play a large part in the piece.

Soon enough ( April 19th 2014 ) our Group's Subscription will run out. For our "Hall Of Fame" Feature's sake and for all the Blogs that bear a significance, it's time to raise some points.
As the Founders of this Group, we want to contribute as well, so we will donate half of it, as usual. We just need a little bit of your help too. Give what you can, even 1 point counts.
Don't forget! Each person that donates any amount of points gets a full-year feature on the front page of our Group.
Goal: 2398 ( without the 2398 points that we'll give ).
P.S. You can find the donation pool on my Profile page:
On Graduating-Hey guys, I know for a lot of you graduation is coming up super fast, and it seems completely absurd that it's been almost a year ago since I was in that boat. I well remember the two options presented to me:On Graduating-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Get a studio job. Preferably close to home.
2) Move back in with my parents. Possibly get a day job or something.
I just wanted to remind ...whoever is reading this... that there are about a gazillion alternatives. In fact, any possible train of actions you can conceive of is an option. It's hard to think of options not presented to you as options, but you really can go anywhere and do anything. This is the only time in our lives when we don't have any greater obligations- we don't have a wife and kids to provide for, no company that would collapse without us, our bodies can handle sleeping on a springy old couch for a while. This is EXACTLY when you should take a gigantic risk because the only thing y

Hello everyone! It's that time of year when the air becomes colder and snowflakes begin to fall from the heavens, the landscape becomes covered by a blanket of white.. (depending on where you are in the world that is. :'D ) So, do you know what that calls for?! That's right an OC Winter/Yule/Christmas Contest! (I decided to launch the contest eight days ahead of schedule since the positive results on my recent polls asked for them.)

The Artist's Toolbox: An Artist JournalAnother Month another Artist's Toolbox.The Artist's Toolbox: An Artist Journal10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This time I'm pulling something rather more personal out of my arsenal of tools which is my own individual way of dealing with the infuriating issue of
I want to draw... but I don't know what.
There are a number of ways people go around dealing with this issue. Just doodling til something pops out. Working on a list of prompts. Asking people to help give them ideas. Doing an entry for a contest.... there are lots of ways of going about finding something to draw.
EH = Ernest Hemmingway
My own personal way of dealing with it, makes use of the opposite problem.
I have loads of ideas! But I have to go to bed/have no time/paper/drawing equipment.
When I have lots of ideas, as is common for me before I'm about to go to bed, or when I'm supposed to be doing something else, I write it down in my magical sparkly kitty book, AKA my Artist Journal. If I just shrug and go "I'll draw that later"

Also, I want to take the chance and apologize for leaving so many comments unanswered. Life has been... chaotic, and for several weeks I've barely been online more than 15 minutes a day. But things are settling down, so I'll be much more active now again. Thanks for your patience!

When Being Human Just Isn't Enough:icontechgnotic:When Being Human Just Isn't Enough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The allure of Anthro Art is obvious to anyone who ever “owned” and loved a pet. (Only those who have never loved and shared lives with a pet speak of pet “ownership”!) Once a bond has been formed between a human and an animal the rigid distinctions between what is human and what is animal begin to fracture.
The definition of “being” becomes suddenly far more expansive. And soon the bonded human begins feeling spiritual affinities with the “animal” that are undeniably powerful and as “real” as any felt with other humans. The desire to leave all the lies and hypocrisies of human society behind and join in with a simpler and somehow more “honest” society of different beings in nature can become palpable and intense. “The grass is always greener…” and, oh!, to scamper across it on four liberating paws!
Featured Art collectionHey everyone!Featured Art collection8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
You know, yesterday, after my daily shower, while blowing my hair, I took a pair of scissors and I started cutting my hair without thinking. Yes, it's not like I always think but I had this urgency of changing. And the fact is that I spent the past two years complaining that I wanted/want long hair like Rapunzel... whatever.
I think this is the richest collection of artworks I have ever featured here on dA. It's full of my personal favorite works of 2013 that you may enjoy. Show some love to these amazing artworks and get inspired

Hipster Armchair ActivistsDerpy Hooves is simply derpy. Why was it fine before she talked?Hipster Armchair Activists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I work personally with over 200 consumers with a wide variety of physical and intellectual disability, ranging from moderate to severe. When I watched the episode that gave Derpy lines, I did not see any strong correlation to actual disability. It didn't even enter my mind.
Who are these people who would assume to be offended on somebody else's behalf. About a cartoon show. On the internet. Why don't you go volunteer? Maybe then you'll actually learn the difference between silliness in a cartoon, and actual disability.
There are multiple people with disabilities who have taken a similar stance to myself-- who are actually offended that all these internet activists are declaring for them what they should be offended by.
Many of these same people are also poo -pooing the Invisible Children video just because it became successful. Nobody was mad at them when n
