Where do you buy your clay? Help us make a list!I'm sure that at some point, this happened to most of us: "wow polymer clay/air dry clay is great! but do they sell it in my country? where can I buy it?". It's also the most asked question for clay groups and clay artists! So if anyone asks you again where to buy clay, you can just send them a link to this page.Where do you buy your clay? Help us make a list!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, how cool would it be if we made a list? Think about how many new artists we would be helping... if you had problems finding clay at the beginning, I'm sure that you were really grateful to that nice person that helped you find it. Also, in countries where clay is really hard to find, having a bigger demand would convince more stores to start stocking clay!
It's a WIN/WIN for all of us: you are giving something back to the community, and you are increasing your possibilities of making clay more readily available to you. Also, you get a cookie for being so awesome! Maybe you will even learn of a new store that is closer or cheaper!
We will be listing both physi

Flight of Dragons - Live Action MovieAs some of you noticed, I uploaded some work I did for the Flight of Dragons live action movie. This will be an independent film remake of the 1982 animated classic movie!Flight of Dragons - Live Action Movie2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I grew up watching the original animated movie, every day of my childhood, perhaps more than once per day. I'm sure that my parents were quite sick of it, but they let me watch it anyhow. So, you can imagine my excitement that I was asked to create some quick paintings to illustrate a storyboard for the trailer. You can see those in my gallery!
They are using crowd-sourcing to fund this project, as they are doing things like hiring a professional orchestra to record the score, etc... neat stuff! If you want to learn more or want to chip in, the website will answer nearly all the questions you might have: http://www.flightofdragonsmovie.com/
If it doesn't, I'm sure that they wouldn't mind emails! They also have a facebook and are very responsive there: https://www.facebook.com/theflightofdragons
One Year on dAA year ago I made the decision to join dA.One Year on dA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'd long been an admirer of deviantART. I was always stumbling upon drawings and paintings I loved. I wanted to be able to participate in the community. I wanted to be able to comment and fave art I loved. At the time, there was also a Skyward Sword meme going around that I wanted to join in on, despite my extremely non-existent drawing skills. My good friend, DarkHunter666 had been trying to convince me for years to join, so I finally made the jump.
I didn't really feel I had anything to upload, but I didn't want to leave my profile empty either. I didn't even know you were 'allowed' to upload anything that wasn't digital or traditional art. I uploaded a couple of things, filled in my profile, chucked up a ridiculous profile picture (which I still haven't gotten around to changing) and called it a day. I was surprised when some of my things got a few views and when a couple of groups requested to add my stuff to their group. :devth

Culinary ArtsCulinary ArtsCulinary Arts2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Culinary is the art of preparing and/or cooking foods to be as pleasing for the palate as it is for the eye.
Not many types of art can claim to be as nourishing for your soul as they are for your body. Culinary arts is appreciated by everyone in the world because it is highly linked with our survival. Also, if you think about it, it is one of the most accessible forms of art around. You probably even subconsciously practised Culinary Arts several times without knowing it.
Example: someone told you to assemble a plate of cheeses, meats and breads? I'm sure you didn't just throw everything on a plate, somewhere in the back of your mind you styled it to your liking.
Style and photograph your piece
To be able to share your culinary art creations with the rest of the world, you need to be able to photograph it. The way you present your piece is important.
Available ClassesIndividuals may take classes that are at their level or below.Available Classes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
PR stands for "Prerequisite," meaning the student must have completed and passed the listed class(es).
How are classes chosen?
At the beginning of the quarter, you update your application with the classes you wish your student to take. Your student can take a maximum of three (3) classes in an Otherworlde year. A year is three months of real life time. But be careful, make sure you have the time for those classes!
What is an assignment and how do I get it?
Assignments are posted by the teachers in the assignments journal every month, on the first of the month. The students taking that class are listed under the class, and you turn in your assignment by submitting it to the group, then posting it onto the journal with the name of the student and the class. The teacher will update the assignment list to show you finished your assignm

How awesome is that? Thanks so much for all the congrats guys!
Planning a newbie sale!I posted about this on my facebook last week just to see what people thought. I want to have a new buyer only sale. So many people have been trying every single sale to snag something without success. I have a LOT of regular buyers and collectors, and many are consistently able to grab one or more critters each sale, SO I'd like to give all the new buyers a better shot! There is of course no way for me to really regulate it and I can't block people from purchasing, but etsy does tell me who has purchased from me before. I would hope anyone who already has one or more of my sculptures would simply honor the request to sit this one out and give some other hopefuls a chance. I always feel so bad when people have tried every single week and come away empty handed. It's frustrating and discouraging. So I'm hoping doing newbie sales now and then will help a bit.Planning a newbie sale!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Why do art schools hate anime/manga?((I'm writing an article on the topic. Do YOU think drawing in manga style requires less effort than drawing in other styles?))Why do art schools hate anime/manga?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hi guys! I need your help!
I recently enrolled into uni to study digital art and design and I was faced with this big fat stigma against manga-style arts. I've decided to write an article about it for my course's blog and I WANT YOUR OPINIONS.
Because me, I just don't get why is it that Western cartoon style is acceptable and anime/manga style isn't. And why art tutors say things like "Oh, we'll have to beat it [anime] out of you, then" to students who admit they like anime/manga.
Why black splatters on white paper have a profound meaning while a complex illustration is dismissed as a piece of crap, non-art, just because it is drawn in manga style?
What the heck happened to the freedom of expression, anyway?
I knew most art schools are not in love with anime/manga style, but I just honestly wasn't expecting such open, well, hostility, for the lack of a

Alongside Kaz-D, I am open to suggestions for Daily Deviations from the Photography Gallery in the following sub-galleries only:

...basically any Photography sub-gallery without a Community Volunteer attached!
