Operation WFP: StartEvery artist enjoys getting feedback and what better time of the year to give than now. It doesn't matter if it's a few simple sentences of praise or a full blown critique, we all love checking our message center and finding that we have a comment waiting. So, we've plotted a deviously simple contest. And of course, for participating, you'll be put into a drawing for some awesome prizes!Operation WFP: Start2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We want you guys to setup your wishlist! If you've already done that, we want you to double check it. Then we want you to add items to it. Easy, yes? But wait! There's a twist! You can't just buy art and not leave feedback for the artist. If you think a piece is wonderful enough to buy, you should let the artist know. So, in addition to creating your wishlist, we want you to comment on a piece you've added to your list.
That can't be just any old 'This is awesome!' comment either. We want at least three meaningful sentences about why you think the piece is awesome and worth buying. To make

Crazy Crafts III: tweebearsI can't live with all this cuteness! I see miniatures all the time (seriously, stop me, it's an obsession) but these tiny bears are among the best miniatures I've ever seen! They're needle felted, the face details are sewn and somehow this amazing deviant makes them posable! I can't believe how tiny they are... I hope that you'll like them as much as I do. They are all the work of the amazing tweebears!Crazy Crafts III: tweebears2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Valentine's Contest - CLOSED A very nice turn-out with 18 entries. As there is some longer lit to read and judge, as well as some detailed commentary with the visual pieces submitted, judging may take a little while. We hope to announce the winners soon, but please be patient as there are so many lovely entries, it's gonna take a bit of time to decide the winners.Valentine's Contest - CLOSED2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In celebration of Valentine's Day (which is today) we are hosting a Relativity contest! Note, this theme is a bit different than our past contests, so be sure to read everything.
The theme is Romantic Love
Just what that means depends on you. Perhaps it's a shipping of two characters. Perhaps it's unrequited love where one side gives and the other doesn't reciprocate. Perhaps it's a tainted love that ends with screams and gunshots.
Who's in love? That's up to you, and you have TWO options:
One of your original characters paired up with one of the Relativity OCs.

Apparel Collection: Deviant CursiveToday, I'm thrilled to tell you about Cursive. This design was a definitely trying, but it worked out well in the end. Plus, I had fun in the process and want to share with you this little art tip. Move your whole body as you draw for fluid strokes and dynamic lines. It really works and I had fun practicing that technique during this piece.Apparel Collection: Deviant Cursive2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes the simplest pieces take the most time to perfect. It's one thing to draw a word all crazy and let the color scheme carry it visually, but to write words in an elegant form can be difficult to perfect. You'll see throughout the story of this piece many iterations the piece went through. I think I wrote this out over 100 times before I felt that it had the right essence.
The concept started in pencil, using many variations of letter forms and fonts to see if one of them would catch my attention. Script styles quickly caught my eye, but I was not sold on which medium to use. So I explored many.
I went through page after page of co

Then, for the last four weeks, you will create your own manipulation. Your manipulation is NOT a collaboration, but you ARE allowed to ask for help, feedback, and advice from your teammates.

Dia de los Muertos Artisan Crafts FeatureAs with the Halloween feature I made, I'm a bit late... but I still think that any time is time for good art!Dia de los Muertos Artisan Crafts Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Some of you already know that I'm mexican and proud, and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a very important tradition for me. While it is also celebrated in other parts of Latin America I am only familiar with the traditions we have here, so I'm really sorry for not being able to represent everyone But feel free to leave me a comment with your own traditions, I would love to read about them
In case anyone is interested some years ago I published a more or less detailed explanation on ofrendas (offerings) complete with photos. Also, I shall warn you that I consider myself a purist, and while I appreciate everyone's efforts to make art inspired by Dia de los Muertos there's some things that simply don't go with the spirit of this date, and I won't include them in this feature... for exa

Photomanip Critiqueables #2Hi everyone!Photomanip Critiqueables #22 years ago in Art Features More Like This
With the kind permission of Moonbeam13, we will periodically be featuring art here that the artists would like to have critiqued. Being that deviantART has so many wonderful communities and galleries, sometimes it is easy to sort-of put blinders on so that we only see our own. These blogs will be an opportunity for everyone to critique art they may not have seen before.
How do I play?
You can either critique the deviations on the deviation pages, or you can critique them here on this blog. A "critique" does not need to be a formal dA critique. It can merely be a comment.
Please remember that critique is not the same as criticize. While these artists understand that not all critique is positive and welcome constructive comments, they do not deserve to be torn apart. Please consider what the artists are doing well and also what they can improve. Thanks!!
Deviation #1: DemonikaDemise
