How to get feedback on dAWe all joined this site, more or less for this reason, to get feedback on our art. The whole point of submitting art online is for people to see it and hear what they think about it.How to get feedback on dA1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Now there are a lot of deviants out there who get little to no feedback and as a result ask the people who faved their art to comment or go to random people on dA and ask for them to look at their art or comment in the hopes that the person will be kind enough to return the favor.
A message to the people who do that, you're doing it all wrong.
Sure, if you ask 20 people who faved your drawing what they thought about it, you might get 1 or 2 answers, but in return, you'll be ignored by say 10 people and you'll annoy 8 people. I get these comments and i'm telling you, begging for feedback is not the way to go, if someone didn't comment when they fave, what makes you think forcing their hand is the right way to go?
A fav is a compliment, take it a it is. Not everyone has

The Unexpected Love ContestHas someone special that you love surprised, delighted, or changed your life in an unexpected, but joyful way? I want to hear your stories.The Unexpected Love Contest2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

I want for you to express to me in a poem or short story this unexpected feeling, and what it ultimately means to you. Be as vividly original as you can to make your deviation stand out, but do keep our key elements of what you feel the aspects of “unexpected love” entails as your primary motivation while writing.

[BIG UPDATE]: I've updated the title and added the sign "closed" so you know the giveaway is C-L-O-S-E-D! I thought it was enough saying there was already a winner, showing you the screenshot of the random number generator... but not. You're driving me nuts. This journal entry keeps being faved and there's people noting me to know when the giveaway will be closed so I can say who the winner is. If you can't read even a single title, don't expect me to reply to those notes telling you what's already been here for almost a month.
Sorry if you think I'm being rude, but everything's got a limit.
[UPDATE]: Good morning everyone, it's 7:11 on the morning here on Spain and already Monday in half of the world. As I said, I'll be using random.org to pick a winner. Please, don't post a comment or send me a note telling me you're not in

Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?It seems there has been a recent explosion in DA users who are now using polymer clay as a medium for their deviations.Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To help out curious users who might be interested in what this medium is, how it works, or where they can get it I thought a NEWS article should be made. I shall also showcase some
deviations made with polymer clay. The data below is compiled from HanaClayWorks polymer clay FAQ and my own FAQ
What is polymer clay?
-Polymer clay is actually not clay at all. It is a form of plastic. (Specifically fine particles of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) suspended in plasticizer) The only reason it is called "clay" is because of it's clay like properties. It is a mold-able substance that can be cured in a normal oven (or toaster oven) and will retain it's shape and remain strong after baking.
Where can I buy Polymer clay?
-You can buy Polymer clay at craft stores like Michaels, AC Moore, Jo Ann Fab

STOCK CONTEST - INSPIRATIONG'day folks,STOCK CONTEST - INSPIRATION3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am two days over due, but here it is. A contest ONLY for stock!
The theme is 'Inspiration'
And I can hear some of you already going... "What the??? That is a bit BROAD!"
Well there is a twist.
You need to find inspiration from another stock artist.
The idea of this is to push you outside of your comfort zone and create an stock image (or series) that you never thought you would create.
Which other stock artist do you watch and go "Wow!", I wish I could be more like them?
To be clear, this is not having you re-create their image/ series. It is about you taking inspiration from that series and putting your own spin on it
I've done it personally quite a number of times...
