We would love to hear feedback from people if they are using this! Have you entered something listed here? Have you won something? Are you actively using this? We want to ensure we are giving the community something worthwhile here- and please don't forget to add opportunities you find to the list too- the more people adding things, the better!
As writers, we always talk about “getting that piece published sometime” or “maybe submitting to a few places”, but how many of us actually eat our words and get on with it?
It was suggested that perhaps we could help nudge you guys by sharing with you the opportunities we know of. Personally, I'm not well explored, but what I do know is that the community is! Therefore this journal is a chance to share the opportunities you find.
How this is going to work?

Need textures?We had a feature of drawing references yesterday, so let's take a look at textures now. I must admit that I'm a total freak when it comes to this topic. I love textures, I love making them and I love seeing them everywhere. In this feature I'll also include some tutorials, traditional and digital, so you could learn how to make some on your own.Need textures?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Zutara Week 2012Hi guys,Zutara Week 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
I deeply apologize that it has taken so long for us to make announcements regarding Zutara Week 2012. I recently graduated, and as it was my last quarter, things were...hectic, to say the least.
As you know, neither trishna87 nor myself will be running it this year.
But we have found replacements!
Pugletz and Lyndez have both agreed to run the week this year, and hopefully even years to come.
I'm handing it all over to them, so I'm sure they will be making announcements on here shortly in terms of dates, prompts, and the like.
Please sit tight, and don't worry because it IS happening!

You guys sent in some great ideas! It took us hours to decide which ones to choose. But in the end, we went with the most creative, abstract, and conceptual themes. Simpler themes would have lead to a hundred of the same drawing, but the words you all sent in are GIANT umbrellas to much smaller prompts.
For instance, many of you sent in ideas like nostalgia, time, memory, future, generations, etc. and momentous can cover all of that. Everyone wins with this theme.
Then we have Seasons, which was chosen based on popular demand.
Just for clarification,

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem

Overcome your unfair obstacles.We all have certain obstacles that gives us the feeling of: 'This is so unfair!.'Overcome your unfair obstacles.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
To me it's one of the most annoying feelings in the world because in general we don't really know how to deal with it. One little part of us says: 'Don't whine about it, you are just being jealous.' the other part of you tells you: 'If I didn't have this obstacle or disability I would rule the world!!'
So you bounce around anger, sadness, hopelessness and envy.
If you were just sad about something or simply angry it would be a lot easier to deal with, you cry or you just vent a bit towards a friend.
But how to deal with he feeling of unfairness?
There are many things that can form this unfair obstacle for you.
Physical obstacles such as: MS, Lyme disease, Arthritis, Color blindness, missing fingers?
Mental obstacles such as: Depression, being a procrastinator (yes I'm naming it because it's a mental blockade that keeps y

Better yet, hateom has a HD video tutorial for you, along with some RAW files so you can follow along - as long as you have the right software. It's very much worth 20 minutes of your time!
