If you will indulge me I'd like to start this by posing a hypothetical:
Lets say that for the better part of your life you have been "different" in some form or fashion…you as a person tend to stray from what is conventional and this often causes you to be at odds with most of society and the culture around you. Over the course of your time on this earth your general well being is predicated on your own ability to survive and flourish when the world outside is so often dark and empty and so as you grow you learn to build your own defenses. This basic idea is in no way uncommon or really even reserved for the "different" people…its innate in all forms of life. Protect yourself so that you can continue to live, learn and grow as a

There was once a time when art depicting the lands west of the Appalachian Mountains as pristine wilderness awaiting exploration was censured by church and state as distracting from more important matters of the common pieties of home life. But there have always been those who need visions of grander realms for the journeys they can only dream of experiencing, but that may one day be rest stops on their great–great–grandchildren’s celestial road maps.

Lel edit: I skipped a day *facepalms* Amazing entries so far guys, I don't know who will be the winner really!
THE DEADLINE WAS MASSIVELY SHORTENED.
SCROLL DOWN FOR INFO.
If you wish to know the reason why, here's why:
This year my schedule will be quite busy and stressful once school is starting for me, and as such I wish to have no owed art haunting me in the middle of the year which only adds extra stress. I hope you understand
ALSO, you don't have to draw anything fancy as an entry, as I judge based on DESIGN and not presentation/art level. Even if you do, it won't raise your chances of winning. Even a quick sketch with some colors is fine!
edit 2: Even more prizes!

Sans serif — Italics & weights
In the previous article of the typography series I presented some of the basic principles of type design and we started designing a geometric sans typeface such as Futura. In this article we will expand that typeface and add italics and alternate weights. Or rather, I will show you how to design italics and briefly present how you can modify your regular weight typeface to create alternate weights rather than having to re-draw the whole letter.

Soichiro is a varied artist from Japan. He has a fine collection of exquisite pencil drawings of people, places and animals. He uses tonal shading to create his works and only uses one color at a given time. This wonderful artist is definitely worth checking out!

This attitude is not ok, for many reasons beside it being completely illogical.
1) You don't get to decide who is a geek or not a geek. Period. Geekdom is about acceptance, not rejection. If you're all about Not Liking Other People That Like The Stuff That You Like, you're not a geek, you're a hipster. Who found a pair of glasses.
2) You don't get to decide who is hot and who is not hot. That girl at the con with thick thighs and a little bit of muffin top? She is a perfect 10 in my book, bro. Except that women's bodies aren't up for the judging. Her attractiveness or lack therof does not define her geekiness. The same way that it does not define her social experience. Pretty

Advice how to become a good artist--Update--Advice how to become a good artist7 years ago in Personal More Like This
(sorry for mistakes, i wrote this on a mac... ... with headache)
No.... I don't explain here how you can get more experience in drawing skills or getting an own style. I talk how you become a good artist in your mind. That means, when is an artist a great artist outside of the paper. Charakter- and thoughtwise. What you become at the end is your way.
And this is my opinion. You must not agree and I hope you do not.
1. Try to get a sense for quality and asthetics first. Get a work ethic/discipline.
2. Fame or popularity creates no good artist and is no indicator for good art.
Ignore the internet or ass kissers.
3. Arrogance is no tool to make your art better.
4. Intolerance against other mediums makes you stiff and hollow. Love all sorts of art and try to find the quality and the garbage in them.
5. Don't copy a famous style to get the fame for yourself. Copy a style just to leanr for further development. Getting attention with this work is rubbish.
6. Don't try to develop

Message in a Bottle: The Eternal Act of Faith
Whether it’s the sole survivor of a plane crash, stranded on a fly–speck Pacific island or the forlorn deserted lover standing alone in the early morning fog at mid–span of Waterloo Bridge, there is nothing sadder, and nothing more defining of the human spirit, than the tossing into the sea of the “message in a bottle.” The idea, more than the actual execution, of this desperate measure, has come to symbolize an eternal act of human faith — that somehow Divine Providence will guide this message through the shifting seven seas to be found on a beach by the one who needs

The Heartbeat of Modern Music
From the days of Beethoven and Franz Liszt, to the Vaudeville stages of America in the1880s to the 1930s, to the electronic keyboards anchoring the rhythms of today’s rock groups and pop singers, the piano has been the heart of the music animating our popular entertainments. Not as sexy as the guitar, nor as brash as the drums, the pianos have been the steadying source of rhythm and timing holding together songs and other compositions for the past several centuries. And, oh yes, while not being so overtly sexy, pianos can be very romantic. Enjoy this gallery of the musician’s most basic dream machi

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them.
