Improving your Manga-styleManga and Anime are a new generation of art, spreading all over the world right now. It is an important aspect of Japanese culture, a solid part of the youth-generation in the US and slowly starts spreading in Europe as well. Even though many people still dont know what Mangas or Animes actually are, most kids already know and they even try to draw this new kind of art themselves. This way the tolerance among adults starts growing as well, a good way to expand the Manga-culture.Improving your Manga-style7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But as for any kind of art, many people have problems in improving their own style or even finding it. This news-article is directed to any kind of artist that is interested in improving himself/herself.</i>
Ive been asked multiple times how some artists manage to improve very fast and others seem to never improve at all and even though I first thought it has to do with practice I had to admit myself that it does not only depend on mere practice but much more on how you practice and especi
PE: Fan Art vs Original ArtFan Art vs. Manga & Anime: The differencesPE: Fan Art vs Original Art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Many people have come to me in the past with questions regarding whether their work qualified as Manga & Anime or Fan Art, same happened with many Daily Deviations that were placed in the M&A gallery when they should have been submitted to the Fan Art Gallery, oops!
Do you have doubts regarding the submission process? Wonder no more, we'll unveil all the mysteries surrounding the categories! :iconokie2plz:
Fan art includes those artworks that are based on or contain material such as characters, settings, concepts or universes in general that are copyrighted to someone else other than the artist creating said Fan artwork.
Manga and Anime art, on the other hand, is home for all the artworks that artists have created from scratch and are not related to any preexisting universe nor contain any copyrighted material.

Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Anime and manga: a booming industry in many parts of the the world. The beautiful and unique style of art and its exquisite stories enticed many readers and captured many young artist's hearts. This is how I started drawing; my love for manga and anime led me to a love of drawing. But like any abilities, good skills do not come overnight; and they don't come no matter how long you sit and wait for them.
I've hit a roadblock in my advancement so I decided to ask my favorite manga artists their own personal experience. It turned out, many of them had difficulties that I'm currently countering. Their advices are most helpful, and I hope you find them helpful too.
To those who never picked up a pencil to draw outside of manatory art classes in school: Read and see the process and other aspects of becoming a good artist. Maybe they can spark a drawing interest in you.
To those who are casual doodlers: These tips may turn you from casual to hard-c

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Our First Contest! *Updated*Greetings Everyone!Our First Contest! *Updated*3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have some very exciting news to share with you all, we are going to hold our first contest for the month of October! We have partnered with dAhub for this contest.
The theme will be "Halloween" I know, a few other groups are doing Halloween themed contests, and since we would like as much support and participation as we can get for our first contest, we are going to allow (for this contest only!) deviations already created, and ones you're working on for other groups. While this is not ideal for us, we don't want to lose any participation due to other on going contests.
We have come up with, what I believe are some simple but important rules for this contest, and encourage you to follow them, or disqualification from the contest will occur, and we do not want to have to disqualify anyone.
Our Rules are:
+ One entry per member!
+ All art media accepted.
+ No mature content, please.
+ Your entry, must have a link in the descr

So I've noticed that so many people are having such a rough time. Just being upset or going through some upsetting things, or just being down in general. And it really honestly upsets me alot: especially since I'm referring to alot of my close or not so close, friends.
I wish that there was a way for me to console or help every single one of you, because I care so much; and you and honestly nobody deserves to have negative feels.
Why am I writing all this?
Because I love you. All of you.
To be honest, I see most people as friends unless they give me reason to not.
B-but, if anyone needs an ear to listen; or in this case, eyes to read. Feel free to rant all you like here, or you could jsut comment or note me. I'm a pretty good listener. ;7;

IF YOU FEED YOUR PETS PURINA FOOD READ THISI'm going to just quotr Fates-Exile's exact journal because it's well worded. I actually feed my dog this brand and will be switching it ASAPIF YOU FEED YOUR PETS PURINA FOOD READ THIS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We had bought purina dog food for our dogs a month ago because we couldn't afford the natural expensive stuff and a week into it all three of our dogs and our cat ( he's weird and eats the dog food) started to decline in health rapidly, scratching constantly, uncontrollable bowl movements, both gas and fecal matter, and a rapid decline in their immune systems. We were baffled and decided to look into the purina food and found out that purina is responsible for it all. Purina food is POISONING and KILLING your pets! STOP FEEDING THEM IT NOW. If you don't believe me here's some reviews from their LONG complaint list:
1. My brother (whom I live with) has been feeding his dog Purina Dog Chow in the green bag for years. Then we got a bag about 3 weeks ago, and ever since then, he seems to lose a lot of his energy, while snubbing the food.
Yearbook Commission UPDATE! J and S Year closed!Okay gang so recently I've received a couple of notes asking for commissions, unfortunately I won't be able to open my regular commissions anytime soon : ( as I am currently catching up on my still long current list, and that I also decided not to accept anymore real life works so i can work full time on da commissions. I really hope I will clear them soon ugh. I've already sketched half of my list tho so I can see some progress somehow XD. I do need money however so I have thought of an idea that some of you might be interested in. I'll be opening a chest-up commissions with a different twist xD. I will call it " ichan's school of OCs" (eww). It will be like a yearbook or something. All your OCs will be drawn wearing a uniform that i designed myself lol. I got that idea because i thought it doesn't take a lot of time finishing it and will be easier to draw unlike doing pictures with BG and stuff that sometimes takes me 1-3 days OTL.Yearbook Commission UPDATE!

Anyway here's the sample:
MASCOT contest OPEN!Alright, so, the groups icon contest so far has gotten no entries, and since I'm happy with our new icon, I'm thinking change the theme. Make it a plain old art contest. I want to keep it really general, so the new theme is a mascot for the group. It can be an animal, a person, a new OC, a cartoon, or pretty much anything else. Even a scene, or an inanimate object. lol. Just be creative.MASCOT contest OPEN!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Because The other contest was running for a while, I'm gonna keep the folder open for a while just in case anyone has something they were working on (which I doubt x3)
The new dead line is March 20th! Other than that, everything is pretty much the same!
So the new rules are:
NO FANART! Only OCs are allowed!! Remember, this contest is of a GROUP MASCOT!
All work must be original!
Digital and traditional art are allowed
Submit it to the contest folder
You MUST state in the description that it is for this contest AND link back to this journal!!
