FINAL - March Poll Period * CLOSED:icontransparentplz:FINAL - March Poll Period * CLOSED3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello dear members, watchers and visitors
This is the new way to find our winner of our POLL SYSTEM: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED of this period!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins a 3 months sub, our usual prize.
Follow the RULES to VOTE...AND EVERYONE VOTING and ING THIS BLOG will enter a draw to win 100 . The participants may and should click the Favourite Button too - you have

Hello!I graduated from animation school recently (well yesterday).Hello!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I felt like a weight has been lifted of my shoulders. Like sorta an art blocky one? I feel like I can draw what I want now.
Before I sorta felt very frustrated. I would do a sketch but once I coloured it it would be not goo enough. Just alot of artistic frustration?
But then again I have to become an adult and pick up some responsibility and such, which is a bit daunting. But I hope I can rest during this holiday period and be ready for next year.
I really hope to draw more and post more art that I am satisfied with, especially art that I am giving to my lovely friends, who stick by me. Even through my frustrations, slowness, procrastination and perfectionism. ; w ;
Here's an animation I did. If you guys are remotely interested on whats been taking up my time ; w ;

Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.Respect Yourself3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

START MAKING PONIESI put together a little pattern that should give you good results and be easy to make. So why am I just giving this pattern away? Well, for one obvious reason - I'm not Hasbro, and I'm too pretty to survive long in prison*. But seriously, we all know plushies can go for helluva money and not everyone can afford to drop that sort of cash. Making your own pony is harder, but if you're willing to learn a few basic crafting techniques you can do it. And if it weren't for other people sharing their patterns and techniques, I wouldn't have learned anything myself. So, have fun and start sewing!START MAKING PONIES4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm working on the tutorial, took a bunch of pictures already but I kind of suck at explaining things so it will probably be a few days. It's easy enough to figure out if you've done some sewing before, though.
If you're interested in plushies . . .

I was trying to get a different look in Photoshop using a 3D render as a base and I thought the result was pretty interesting. Here is a walk through!
Starts in ZBrush for the sculpt, then keyshot for render, then Photoshop for composition.
Speedpaint in Verve!Here is an hour long painting I did in Verve to see if it could produce something decent in it... not bad! I really love the more traditional look. Always wished Photoshop had something like this. Still pretty tricky to work in Verve and it feels very limited still but for an alpha version its fucking awesome.Speedpaint in Verve!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Warrior and the Mage
“Preys of the thirst of blades and hunger of spells, what are we but witnesses of a war of two? Steel cloaks the hills as mist rises from the seas, and the night grows bright from shining swords and enchanted words. Whose blood will it be on the meadows, whose cry will echo the victory? When the drums are put to sleep, who will rule between the warrior and the mage?”

To all of those who think they have no talent,Just a quick reminder that art is art, no matter if it's a stick figure or paintings from Picasso.To all of those who think they have no talent,4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Me and my friend were talking about art teachers and how I dropped out of art a few years ago because I didn't like being that something I did out of my own creativity was wrong.
It certainly wasn't wrong, and I know plenty of others who would agree.
Sure we can let teachers guide us; that's what they're there for.
To help us learn about the ways of art and how to get better.
But they shouldn't tell you that your art isn't good because it "looks bad" or isn't what THEY want.
Personally, I appreciate anyone who is willing to draw/paint/write literature/etc and post it on the internet or anywhere else.
Because truthfully, all art is beautiful.
It's a perfect way to express who we are.
Even if it's a stick figure.
I MEAN. Who DOESN'T enjoy cute stick figure comics? I love them!
So if you think you're not an artist or your art isn't good enough, rethink that and know that art is art no matter

The title is weird, I know. It could probably be easily read as some sort of disdain for conventions themselves, but after this weekend I just need to talk this over and frankly just fucking whine about it.. I think it's called "Venting". But let it be known, this is a subject that means a lot to me, and I'm not in that great of a mood with this journal, so please, if you wish to communicate, be considerate..
So how do I even begin... Well.. I guess just start with what needs to be said and then I'll move on to the reason why I'm writing this.. Now I've talked a lot about this issue of mine on an image I uploaded:

I will be leaving dA for two years..Hey my awesome watchers and friends!I will be leaving dA for two years..3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, yes, like the title says, I will be leaving dA for two years as of the 18th of April, so in about a week. This is a tough decision, as dA has become an important part of my life, because I am actually trying to build up a living with my art. But you should know, that I am a Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.. ) and I am 18, close to 19, so I am going on a mission. That means I will be going to the Alpine region (Switzerland, Austria, South-Germany) and talk to the people about what I believe in. You have to know, that this is something I carefully considered and I have a strong belief in God and so I want to share the joy my religion has brought me. The mission will be for two years and I wont have the time to upload any art to dA. My sister PixieCold will keep you up to date through journals on my page here, so you know what I am doing and how my life is going!
Please, if you disagree with
