Jump Start Your StoryWelcome to our brand spanking Quarterly Resource Feature! That's right, four times a year we're going to invade your inbox with some pointers, guides and tutorials to assist you in your writing adventures and there's nothing you can do about it!Jump Start Your Story3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
For our first feature, we're going to keep things simple and work with the basics of starting your story. It should be obvious that a story starts with an idea. But how do we get from a basic idea to a full blown novel? Well, there are lots of answers to that. Here are just some:

DA Lit : Who We AreI am proud to be exclusively a literature artist. I really don't know how to do anything else. Here on DA, Literature is not necessarily under appreciated by most of the people in the community, it is just widely ignored. I think, really, many of us are completely okay with that. For the most part, we aren't here for popularity.DA Lit : Who We Are3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We are here for each other. We don't have thousands of followers. We don't have millions of faves. But for the most part, we have been able to find other artists that help us to refine our art. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I truly cannot express the appreciation and love that I have for my friends who consistently critique my work. One monstroooo, ChibiDomo, or any other of my adamant critique-rs is worth a thousand faceless, nameless followers.
We are a community of our own. There are many groups here on DA that inspire writ

-A note for current members: You do not have to wait for a public opening to create second, third, ect... characters. Once you've been accepted after creating your first character (or invited to the group) you may make characters whenever you have the points or the mood strikes you.
Please remember before requesting to join the group that you have your application finished! I've been a little relaxed about this, but with so many people joining I'll probably have to start being more strict, which I don't want to do ;^; So just read the rules, kay, guys?
A couple of things to remember
- You must have your applications in by the 31st of January 31st for this opening.

“Things that I love about…”- painting a dollI love to put different hair locks to a doll face so much during the process of painting it it allows me to look at the conceived doll from a different angle and to "polish" the details of her image, and it captivates me so much that I can spend much time at this activity!“Things that I love about…”- painting a doll3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Fantasize a bit, what this new Dea Vivente is going to look like? Probably, she will stay like this, but maybe you will not recognize her when she is a heroine of new photographs.
Right now I'll show you the results of high firing the doll's parts put together. The new porcelain that the girls are cast from is beautiful flesh toned, shining a bit and even shimmering. I'm glad that Dea Vivente are going to become even better.
I like the look of fired porcelain this is yet the "blank canvas" meant for picturing a painting.
And now some words about painting.
In doll sphere, toning the parts of body is called "blushing", and this is

Seriously, people? And wolves - PHOTOS!Hi!Seriously, people? And wolves - PHOTOS!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been always curious about the number of people, who look at my journals. And new style of "favable" journals could finally show it to me. I was interested - when I post a journal, I usually have some + 400 views on my profile page. So I expected to have some 400 views on my last journals, which would confirm, that 400 persons read it. But it got some 6 000 views! it is MUCH more than my photos usually have! I can not believe this number is correct... I was told that the journal appeared in some dA news section, but I am not sure if that is a reason, because I had no special pageviews, just regular + 400, which is typical for a day, when I post a journal. I think that new visitors, who would be attracted by a journal, would probably (at least small part of them) visit my page, so I would have bigger number of pageviews
So this is a mystery, really...
As I said, I like my photo journals and I consider them my "trade mark", something which differs me from anot

I am truly sorry for taking while and letting you all wait for the result. My truly apologize and here is the result of top 7:
Actually there are more than top 7 cause we have lot of great entries this time. But I only have enough points for 7 so we will have top 7 here. Some works are very good but didn't follow the rules therefore I can't choose them for top 7 too,
I am sorry for that ^^'
Also, not wanna to keep repeating again and again but for me, all are winners cause it's your beautiful drawings which you put all your soul and hearts in it. Top 7 is just like a pushing but winners are all ^^ .
And for peoples who are not in top 7 this time, please don't be upset. As the point of this challenge is not for winning but for improving and it's like a motivation for us to draw/work more on art .
Please never stop working and impro
On Art TheftIf you’ve ever followed my Deviantart journals in the past you will know that I have a pretty open policy regarding the usage of my art. My policy allows for repostings/recoloring/edits/tracings/what-have-you, as long as it is all for personal use and not-for-profit (meaning it isn’t being sold, auctioned, or any use wherein money changes hands.) I also allow roleplaying of my characters, and fan art (of course)!On Art Theft9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Still though, I get a lot of people coming to me with examples of where people have traced/recolored/edited/reposted my pieces. The person contacting me will often also comment on the “offenders” work, or contact them privately to scold them on my behalf.
While I appreciate that people would care enough to watch out for me, as it were, my preference is that these people are left alone. There are a good number of pretty young BBA fans. I am written “fan mail” all the time by young people who weren’t artists before, but started dra

How To Not Be a Jerk...on the internet. Gonna keep this simple and to the point.How To Not Be a Jerk3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Do not call someone names or speak ill of them to others. If they did something wrong and you want to do something about it, talk to them privately.
If that doesn't work, just ignore them.
Guess what? Blocking works. Block someone if they're upsetting you and you aren't able to handle it.
If you find someone who has 'bad art' in your standards, don't comment on their art/page/journal about how bad their art is. Instead, click off their page.
If the 'bad' artist is asking for feedback, make sure it's constructive. If you mention that their anatomy is bad, explain how they can fix it. Try to mention something that they're doing good at as well. Be positive.
Do not talk shit about someone behind their back, no matter how bad your day was, or whatever other bullshit excuse you have. There's always a chance they could find your shit comment if you'

My "Art of Rise of the Guardians" book!!!! IT CAME A DAY EARLY. AWESOME SURPRISE. It has a foreword by Alec Baldwin, a preface by NONE OTHER THAN WILLIAM JOYCE HIMSELF, and is written by Ramin Zahen.
OHMYGOODNESS. IT'S AWESOME.
It had chapters on each of the characters and their lairs!! AND THERE'S AN ENTIRE. FRIGGIN. SECTION. ON. JACK.
Anyway, I'm writing Chapter 28 right now and should have it up! After that, I'm going to continue fangirling hard as I read through this entire 155-page book.
And then probably write some more. Because I'm going to be inspired.
I'll be sure to end up including some findings that this art book will provide in my writing so it stays accurate!
