Hey all you Rangers, time for another Contest. ^^
Some of you members who've been around for a while might remember the first contest we ever had. It was a contest to create a Logo here for the DeviantART Rangers.
You can still see the winner if you press my admin user and return to the original page, our Admin Kristy was the first ever to win a contest here at the DA Rangers.
We thought it'd be fun to re-visit that contest after the years. (Wow, now I feel old. lol) I hope you all have fun. It'd be wonderful if a lot of you Rangers contributed to this, c
Rat Anatomy Compilation.Rats are very fascinating little creatures. They have small hands like humans, minus the thumbs. They are intelligent and social, and each rat has a unique personality. They can also easily stand on their hind legs, making them an easy transition to an anthropomorphic form for stories and art.Rat Anatomy Compilation.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, though, they are damn difficult to draw, and there are precious few resources for those wishing to delve into their anatomical structure (certainly me included). So I will be collecting references, both photos and drawings, that I think might be helpful to someone looking to draw my charming friend Rattus norvegicus (and perhaps some of his closest family members). I will probably add to this from time to time as I find new resources, so please feel free to suggest things that you think might be useful!

Tutorial Showcase #13DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal. So here we go!Tutorial Showcase #132 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Technicalities of Pixel Art - File FormatsI've seen too many pixel works being saved in bad file formats, so I may as well write this to help others and to save me time when I have to explain something.Technicalities of Pixel Art - File Formats3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In a nutshell:
PNG (Stands for Portable Network Graphic)- The best file format for pixel art.
You generally cannot go wrong with this. This file format works best with images with areas of solid color, which includes pixel art as well as vectors.
However, if you use MS paint, you may have difficulty replacing colors using the eraser tool if you try to edit a PNG file.
GIF (Stands for Graphics Interchange Format)- Next best thing for pixel art.
To be safe, only use GIF's if you know your computers.
BMP (Short for Bitmap)- Acceptable
You can't go wrong with this unless you upload BMP's to deviantART (dA will turn your BMP into a jpeg), but this file format is not efficient with size. They tend to be bigger than other files.
JPG/JPEG (Stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group)- If you are doing pixel-work please avoid thi

A (modern) history of dA emoticonsIntroA (modern) history of dA emoticons2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
As you wander around deviantART pages, there is noticeably one art medium that invades almost every element of the site. Whether it is the deviantART galleries, journals, news section, comments, forums, chatrooms, avatars or even dA profiles, it is hard to find a spot that hasn't been infiltrated by a familiar set of small, coloured, pixel circles. The art form I am talking about is of course the emoticon and throughout the past 10 or so years they have been happily adopted by deviantART and its community.
Although emoticons can often be spotted on a wide range of other instant messengers (IMs) and social media sites, deviantART has come to house a unique branch of these miniature art pieces. Whilst the majority of these alternative sites opt for simple, predominately yellow emotes with a range of basic expressions, the art community here at dA have stretched the art form far beyond its natural boundaries and developed entirely new styles of emoticons

An artwork of your animal friend
By an animal friend, I mean your own pet, but it can also be your family pet, family dog for example, as well as some animal you're closely connected to and love very much, like that one special horse of your granddad's you made friends with and love to ride.
Does my animal friend have to be..uhm...alive?
No. I even encourage making an artwork of an animal you loved very much, but unfortunately is no longer with you, for whichever reason. Always wanted to draw your dog you spent so many wonderful years together? Now's a good time.

So you want to do commissions?A basic guide to setting up commissionsSo you want to do commissions?4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When it comes to commissioning, there is so much that needs to be decided, arranged and thought of that it can all appear a bit daunting at first.
However: when following a couple of basic guidelines, setting up commissions really is not as hard as you think!
If you find the article informative, please it.
First things first
So you have decided you want to start doing commissions. That's great!
The first thing to do is to determine what you want to offer.
Do you want to offer drawings, or designs?
Will you be coding journal-skins for people, or will you be pixeling?
Take a look through your gallery and try to determine what you do best and what you like to do the most.
Because that will most likely be what you'll be offering.
Stick to what you're good at.
Don't promise what you can't deliver when someone is paying you for it.
Now that you've mo
Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.
Basic HTML Formatting GuideIntroductionBasic HTML Formatting Guide2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
HTML is a markup language used to create web pages. It primarily consists of content placed between named tags that define the layout or style of that content.
Is it just me or does trying to explain HTML and what it does always seem to make it sound more complicated than it actually is? Very simply, HTML is the building blocks of the web. With it you can create a web page right from the foundations of the layout to the finishing touches of style. Don't get me wrong, it is a fairly involved topic but it really is quite simple to pick up the basics.
What I'll be helping you with here is the formatting aspect of HTML. These are the things that add colour to your page and make your font fancy.
Below you will find a number of examples of HTML formatting that you can use to style your own web pages, dA profiles and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also writ

FNAF - Why I don't ship anything there.Yeah, people really like to ship things and whatever and whatnotFNAF - Why I don't ship anything there.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
but as for Five Nights at Freddy's
it is one particular thing that I will never shit
I will NEVER ship animatronics,
well, because of my line of thought and my view of it.
In my view
story wise, the main animatronics are possessed by spirits of children that were killed by the psycho that was wearing a Freddy suit.
and that reason above is the main reason I do not shit them
THEY ARE KIDS
For me, it doesn't matter that they are huge animatronics, the spirits inside ARE KIDS.
Spirits don't get old via aging, nor gain more life experience, because, as you can see, they are not alive. They don't go to puperty either, becuase, well, they are DEAD.
Then you could go to me and ask
"Oh but if they are such kids, then why they want to kill you???"
Then I have my own theories
1. They are repeating the way they were killed, witch means that is the only and last thing their spirits can remember,

So as it turned out someone wrote the following message to me:
nah, i gave up on it ages ago... its not only hard but also frustrating and depressing... approx. 1 month for 1 min motion duration = got burned-out before i'd even finish it... so i raise up my hands in the air and just retire... don't have any spare time to make it. still have life and work to do after all... ahahaha...
Now this is not the first time I've seen something like this written and so I felt it would be a nice idea to write down the method that I use to do my animation work.
First off, to save you alot of time, this is not a tutorial on computer animation. There are plenty of excellent tutorials around on this topic all over the Internet. Rather this article gives you a method; specifically mine; on how to approach the process of producing animation. So if you're looking for a "How to" guide, this is not it.

Mewthree Design Contest (with prizes) (Closed!)The-Mew3-Townside is hosting a design contest for the ultimate Fakemon, the Mewthree. The premise is simple. From August 1st to the end of August 31st we're inviting both members and non-members alike to participate in designing their very own Mewthree. There are a few rules to follow in this contest:Mewthree Design Contest (with prizes) (Closed!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1.) Unless it is literally a black and white character, the Mewthree must be in color.
2.) It can be any medium you like!
3.) Drawing/art skills do not count here. It's all about your creative design, not your skill.
4.) The design must be new. No copies, and no old designs that you made from the past and already posted.
5.) The last image you enter will be the only one that counts, but you can enter multiples.
Here is a couple tips to help you win (you can see pre-existing designs by doing a search for 'Mewthree' so you know what not to do):
1.) Avoid certain colors. Black and red mostly. It's very common.
2.) Don't be too simple, like just change the colors of a Mewtwo.
3.) Also do
