Giving and Receiving Feedback
One of the most useful things on deviantart is the option to give and receive feedback. There are different kinds of feedback. This article aims to inform you on how to give quality feedback and hopefully receive it.
Types of Feedback
One of the quickest ways to interact with others. From journals, to forums, to art, to profiles, comments are used everywhere. However, the quality can range from spam, to constructive.
Any deviant can write them,(~,*,=,`,^ etc.) but only premium members can request them. Constructive comments can substitute for these. Critiques take some time to write, and really provide insight. If used correctly, can be a wonderful way to give/receive constructive criticism.
This is important to receiving feedback. If you give, you are l

Traditional Art Week continues! This article will give you a brief overview of most commonly used physical media techniques and their characteristics, featuring beautiful examples found all over DeviantArt and tutorials. I sincerely hope this will get you inspired to try something new and experiment, why not pick a tutorial and see what you learn! Don't forget, whilst techniques has their own regulations and principles, they still can be combined, you have to be no wizard (just a little creative) to find a new way to express yourself through them. Let's take a look
1. Drawing media
Drawing is one of the major forms of expression within the visual arts, and is generally concerned with the marking of lines and areas of tone onto paper. Traditional drawings were monochrome, or at least had little color, while modern colored-pencil drawings may a

~Design Contest! CLOSED!Hey all!~Design Contest! CLOSED!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it's been a while since I held a contest, and I think it's about time for a new one! However, this time I won't get you to draw any of my characters; instead I'll be getting you to design a new one!
I did this with the design of Serphy, yes, believe it or not (his design has changed dramatically from the original entry however) and I realized how fun the contest was, so I want to hold another one almost the same!
Now I've been thinking a lot about this. And I really, really want a new fursona. As in, entirely new; Taz and Marie won't be sonas anymore; instead I will keep them as characters, because I still do love them. However, I just don't feel like they capture me enough. Sure, all of the elements symbolizing the things I like are there, like favourite colours, accessories and what not. But really, they're just cool designs to me now. They don't mean as much as they used to. And as much as I love Tazzies design a hell of a lot, she just isn't realistic enough. I will mos

"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and
An Uncomfortable ContestNew Contest!An Uncomfortable Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey everyone, :iconhexagonalhyena: here! :iconsabbelbina: and I have been discussing a new contest for this group, but also for other deviants outside of it as well!
The theme is:
Out of Your Comfort Zone
Many times, us artists find a body type, character type, species, race, ect. that we really love to draw, and we draw it all the time! But in order to be truly successful, we need to be able to draw all kinds of things. So for this contest, we want to challenge you to create a character that is way out of your comfort zone! If you love to draw thin and beautiful female humans, how about try and draw a bulbous, not-so-pretty male monster? Or if you love drawing scaly dragons, try maybe a fleshy mammal creature. The possibilities are endless! We just want to see you create something you normally wouldn't! Just remember that it has to be Fantasy and/or Sci-fi themed.
- The deadline is December 1st, though this can be

an empty womb

moon, the beds

Final Thoughts from Clive Barker
Odyssey. I can think of no better word to describe the journey that took place these past few months.
With the prologue, “They’re Mad, They Are,” I began work on a vessel that was not yet ready for sea. And on that holed ship, together we embarked over open waters towards an unknown destination.
What I then witnessed both touched and humbled me. You, the mighty crew of the HMS Ody
