Crochet Artists, You Want HOW Much?
Ladies and gentlemen -- artists -- gather 'round, as we are going to discuss that hot-button topic nobody loves: How to price your crocheted goods. Aside from the obvious topics, such as materials cost, we will also be covering the subject of how you refer to your work, yourself, and your customers. It is my endeavor here to touch on all aspects of crochet creation, to enable you to accurately price your items and convey that the price is fair.
How do you, as a crocheter, define yourself? How do you refer to yourself to yourself and to others? Does it matter? Let me ass

A Shout-Out for my fellow DeviantsI want to give a shout out to these guys here. They've been really good to me and taught me to never give up. They're also really nice. Check out their works and give them a Watch!A Shout-Out for my fellow Deviants2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Lately, I've been feeling down due to home situations and whatnot. But then I realized: There's nothing to worry about. I'm improving on my art and everything's going to be all right in life. Even if I'm going through so much.
Remember guys, never give up. Keep doing your best. We all have different art styles and we all go through a lot in life. But know that we can get through obstacles and negativity. Also, popularity doesn't matter. As long as you love your art and keep drawing, that's all that matters.
If I missed anyone here, please let me know. I appreciate EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU on DeviantArt. Stay awesome, guys. :icongrouphugplz:

A Crash Course in Slam PoetryThere are ten days left to submit to the Louder Than dA Bomb submission folder. With that being said, I'm putting out an article that offers some tips and quick solutions to problems a poet may be facing when writing their slam poem. But very quickly, I would like to address a stigma surrounding submitting "great" work to contests.A Crash Course in Slam Poetry2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I'll keep this brief. The world is not set to your pace. Or anyone else's really. Everybody's just trying to keep up. This line of thinking can't be taken to the publishing industry (for those that would like to publish) or anywhere else for that matter. Applying the thought to your art or literature that unless it was created under certain circumstances is to not take your work seriously.
If you don't believe you can write and read a slam poem in ten days, I'm here to tell you different and to tell you the ins and outs of slam.

I, IcarusLoveMedley, have finally used my video editing degree to make something helpful for doll people. Me? Productive? Yeaaah… sometimes.
When I first got into the hobby I had NO bloody clue how to do anything, The only reason I learned was I had wonderful friends like Tolin and Cats10 to show me step by step how to maintain my doll. I filmed and made this tutorial for others out there who are like me and learn by seeing.
Hope this is some help to you wonderful people out there! I’ll see if I can talk ErrorAuthor into doing a tutorial on creating patterns for sueding as she’s a BOSS at it.

This week's featured deviant is Hfeather53!
I took a poem about the lovely Hfeather53, written by intricately-ordinary, from her devID to use here:
Heather sings the earth to sleep
with a voice of feathers and
a stomach of rocks, lost
deep in her thoughts of past
is present and kin is sin –
(I am all that I have ever been,
set me free, let me be me)
Heather, the beautiful glass
museum harboring histories
of a million other lives, born

Please keep an eye out for the winners announcement on March 30th.
Most of us [if not all] grew up believing that fairytales always ended in a "happily ever after"… But what if they didn’t? What if it all went horribly, terribly…even catastrophically wrong? What then?

Once Upon a Time in a Town Called Apocalypse
We want you to tell us a tale. A fairytale to be precise. About a town called "Apocalypse". A town at the end of the world. Where only the strongest of survivors reside.

Are they kind-hearted? Or ruthless, cold-blooded killers?

What it means: A feeling of longing associated with displacement, but not necessarily displacement from one’s original home. An intense yearning to be somewhere you are not. Hiraeth also expresses a sort of ache or longing for something of the past, somewhat similar to the notion of "golden" or "good old days," but with more ancient connotations.
Why it needs to be a thing in English: I speak as someone from a country
