Full blog and details found here: http://dreamorchid78.deviantart.com/journal/Back-with-a-bang-and-CONTEST-303007033
The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game. I really would like to see originality in this and I

I hope everyone's doing well. My father just got cleared to have soft foods and liquids today, so yay milkshakes, etc.
Also, uh. Does anyone else ever have a lot of inspiration only on certain days of the month? Or am I weird? :/
Also, if you are a watcher and I didn't feature you in the last watcher feature, would you let me know so I can add you next time? /I fail
Collection: CreaturesCollection: Creatures9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
In ancient tradition, Halloween was thought to be the night of the year when the realms of the living of the living and the dead came the closest together, enabling evil spirits and demons to hop over to our side to make mischief. For centuries the Church made very serious studies of what these hellacious creatures were actually thought to look like. Today, “creature imagining” is just a creative exercise and a way of having fun. Thank goodness none of our deviantART artists are drawing any of the subjects of this collection from live models. (Then again, just maybe…)

Why People Hate ArtI found this talk very interesting and absolutely agreeable as it makes some sound arguments against some of the bullshit that's going on in the art world and how to go about remedying it.Why People Hate Art4 years ago in Personal More Like This
From the video's description:
"Art is often nothing more than a footnote to a (poorly written) essay making an unsound argument that uses technical and scientific terms inappropriately and without justification in an attempt to apply a veneer of rigour over their steaming pile of banal observations and utter nonsense.
This talk is a criticism of that tendency in the art world.

When inspiration is far to be found...We all get these anoying times when we really want to make something cool, get inspired and work that magic. We see everyone around us (online) do it, but how come we are not?When inspiration is far to be found...10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So we look for ways to get inspired, we ask around, find these usual answers: go watch a film, listen to music.. take a walk...
But even when we do that, we still end up stuck most of the time.
Part of the solution is knowing WHY we get stuck and this is my theory.
ADT - Attention Deficit Trait.
'Experiencing an inner frenzy of distractability, impatience, difficulty in setting priorities, staying focused and managing time. Those are our biggest enemies as they all end up cluttering your head and keeping you from spending quality focused time on a singular topic.
Everything we do now a days is based around multitasking and it is giving us a constant overdose of information. Let me elaborate.

Of Angels and Demons Vol. 1
“Hush, my friends. Let me tell you of those gods whose lore has left our lands, of the long–dead songs of angels and demons; let your hearts brave the ill–luck of broken vows and breathe the influx of borrowed spells. Walk with me on the winds of a victory of kings, and tell me now: whose flock will be crushed under the blow of defeat? Will you bathe in the white solace of the banners of salvation, or burn in the fiery fire of the warriors of damnation?”

Moon kite by Ebineyland
May 3rd, 2015
In around 9 hours from the moment I hit the submit button on this blog, the fifth full moon of 2015 happens (May 4th 03:42 UTC)
I need to ask everyone to forgive me.. This group did not post either an end of March or an end of April feature.. Sorry.. Life happens.
I hope you will agree that the year's fifth full moon is an acceptable occasion to say "Thank You" to the artists who have supported this group over the last couple of months, by allowing us to showcase their awesome images of the Y-chromosomes.
So.. Let's place a spotlight on 10 artists who gave this group excellent deviations during the last few weeks. But please know, even if we showcase 100 artists in this feature, this would be but a tiny percent of the artists active in this group. To see a much better selection, please browse the Gallery section of this

Smiling depressionIt's not good when you so often are so cheerful, happy and not caring that people never see when you feel really bad.. Even if it happens rarely, because it happens rarely.. Because you just continue to smile or laugh if you're not alone, and you do it sincerely, but when they leave you again and again stay face to face with your darkness, lonesome and feeling empty.. watching the days flying by with the light speed..Smiling depression3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Step One; Formatting
Formatting doesn't really need to be anything fancy. It doesn't have to have a pretty alignment or whatever - but if you want to do that it's chill chill. Unless you're trying to be professional, then it's not chill chill. Don't use ALL CAPITAL LETTERS FOR EMPHASIS, very few people are able to get away with this - like J.K Rowling - but even then she doesn't do it too it often. Try using italics or an exclamation point (only one!) for emphasising. If you really want to get the message across that they were shouting, then describe it!
E.g. "I didn't want salmon, I said it four times!" shouted Will, his vocal chords straining at the volume of his voice.
Also, make sure you paragraph your writing. The way you can tell when to paragraph is when t
