Icon ContestHi guys,Icon Contest1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I don't think I've ever held a personal contest before, so this is all really new to me.
I need a new icon/avatar, so I thought I'd make a little contest out of it! If you could spread the word by posting this article in a poll or journal, that would be wonderful.
The icon must be 50x50px and under 15kb in file size.
I am only accepting pixel icons for this contest.
Entries must be new and only made for this contest.
The icon must contain me or something that you feel represents me. (Check my current ID or instagram for my appearance)
Things I like: Lady Gaga, Daenerys Targaryen (from Game of Thrones); colours: blue and teal.
If you need to know anything else about me, feel free to send me a note or comment below.

Emoti-Art Feature #1 What is Emoticon Art?Emoti-Art Feature #11 year ago in Art Features More Like This
What is Emoticon Art? As founder of Emoti-Art, that's a question I get asked a lot. What criteria is used that sets one piece apart from another?
First, it should be noted that I am of the belief that all emoticons are art. I feel a level of skill is needed to make them, and even a simple static emote is creative. Sure, it may not be high-art, such as a child's sketch is not a Mona Lisa. But there is still effort behind it and that's important. For more thoughts on this issue from the emoticon community, check out this article.
When we use the term "Emoticon Art," it's a classification, much like Chat-Friendly. Traditionally, Emoticon Art pieces are larger and more detailed. Because of their size and theme, they are often not useful for chats or comments. They are pieces that are simply lovely to sit and look at

If you aren't familiar with the 'Add media'-sidebar yet, I suggest you read this tutorial before you move on:
There are different ways how to get more specific and maybe also better results in the Emoticons tab.
Keep in mind: only the Emotes are shown that are in the Chat friendly Emotes category and smaller than a certain size.
The Emoticons in your Favourites:
I heard that deviants have create a Folder in their Favourites for Chat friendly Emotes to have a quicker access to them, but there are a few problems with that:
Only Premium Members have access to this tab.
You are limited to 5 thumbs in your comment.
But there is another way to find the Chat friendly Emotes that you have in your Favourites!

Seniority Announcements - December 2013Seniority Announcements - December 20136 months ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after Senior Member accolade -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out

Syn's Dithering TutorialWhat is dithering?Syn's Dithering Tutorial1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Dithering is a pixel art process used to blend blocks of colour together or help apply a texture to a pixelled surface. Within emoticons it is most commonly used when making pixelled backgrounds, however it can be used in a number of other areas, e.g. massive emote bases, pixel objects etc. In this tutorial, we will focus on how 2 colours can be blended with dithering.
To break dithering down into simple terms, it is achieved by simply taking the colours from the two blocks of colour and placing individual pixels of each on the opposite side. This creates a region where the two colours merge together to create a more blended colour transition instead of a clear line between the two.
Dithering can seem like a complex process, but it's really not. Once you get the basic idea and technique, it's just all about practice and over time you'll learn how to apply it to a number of different situations. There are many dithering styles which can be

The Pixel Art CommunityWelcome to Pixel Art’s PE week! Firstly, I’d like to begin by discussing where we are in the Pixel Art community, where we came from and where we might head in the future.The Pixel Art Community2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why discuss the definition of Pixel Art?
Why is it so important to discuss the definition of Pixel Art? It becomes important not only when it comes time to update the category’s description for the sake of organisation and clarity, but also when confusion and misconceptions become increasingly common among those in the community itself. As Pixel Art grew from being primarily used for old computer and gaming systems, that could not handle much data and therefore not too many colours per palette, into something used with more contemporary technologies like Photoshop and MSPaint, Pixel Art itself was bound to reflect those changes. This change has become apparent in new styles, new techniques and questions around the need for the “old rules” of past
