2. You like Blue and also all the colors, I do not know what is more confusing.
3. Graphite and/or charcoal yes, I feel you on that, but I dont know If I would just shade quick and blend it, but that is just me.

5. With the amount of cat pictures on dA I was not surprised to see that you think it is cutest animal, I hope you wasn´t the one that suggested dragon to be the cutest animal.
6. You spend 3-10 hours a week on your artworks, that is quite nice I must say, and you really like portrait and figures. ( some "artistic" nudes in the mix there ? )

More Updates to the New Thumbnails Preview
Several weeks ago, we released a sneak peek of deviantART's new thumbnails. We've been making changes based on community responses, and today we've implemented a few more. In this updated version, the font, spacing, and colors of the text under the thumbs have been adjusted. Also, several members had concerns about the "frames" that were put around thumbs that were either extra tall, extra wide, or small images (such as emoticons and avatars). We've adjusted the visual display of these frames to make them less distracti
PE: Scanning And Photographing A/M WorksIntroductionPE: Scanning And Photographing A/M Works8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
A traditional artist faces a great challenge after finishing an artwork. How do they get it on their computer to upload and show the world?
There are two main options: Scan or Photograph. Both of these come with a horde of challenges and this article is to offer a starting point for the artist to experiment and find the best solution for their art.
There are a number of type of scanners, the most common domestic peripheral being the flat bed scanner. This article focuses on using a flat bed scanner and not a wand or other type of scanner.
First things, the scanning bed must be as clean as possible, clear off dust and pet hairs before attempting to use and make sure the scanner is on a stable surface for scanning. Some scanners will be sensitive to direct sunlight being on the outside, if you find that your artworks get a strange bright spot, do check that section of your scanner isn't being exposed to direct light.

Once again sine-out has provided a fantastic answer, so hopefully that will help somewhat in clearing this issue up. Have a question?

PE DD Week: A DD is not an award, but a feature.PE DD Week: A DD is not an award, but a feature.3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A DD is not an award but an art feature.
There. I said it. A DD is not a prestigious award that will change your life drastically, it's just a 24h feature.
But why is it so important to make this distinction?
It's just a way of naming something and therefore should not be of great importance, yet it makes all the difference in how people perceive a DD.
On the importance of terminology
As mentioned in the intro, the biggest problem when it comes to Daily Deviations arises with the choice of words used to describe what a Daily Deviaton is. When you call it an award, people will automatically assume that the Daily Deviation is the cream of the crop of every deviation posted ever on this site and that no art featured after it should be able to be perceived as "worse". However, when you call it a feature, most people are fine with the picked deviations and don't even hold them to the high standards of living up and
Community Voices: What is a Daily Deviation?DDs: The deviantART definitionCommunity Voices: What is a Daily Deviation?3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So, as the title says, What in the world IS a Daily Deviation (DD), anyway?
You know what deviantART says about it, right? Under :faq61: it says:
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
That says nothing about a DD being a perfect specimen of art-- in fact, it doesn't even use the word "art" at all. Basically, as CVs, when we are giving a DD, we are doing so because we think the image is interesting and well-done and deserves your attention. It may be technically exquisite. It may be technically quite good but exceptionally thought-provoking. It may be exceedingly creative. It may be all of these things! Above all else, it should stand out in some way from others in that medium or gallery.

How To Photograph Your Paintings
In this article I want to discuss a common problem that some traditional artists have. That's photographing your paintings. Whether it be for selling prints or just getting your art noticed online the importance of having paintings look great is key. If your fortunate enough to have a scanner for smaller pieces then that's great! But if your working on large canvases or paper then you can run into issues. The most common problem artists have are Glare, Blur and Color. All of which will be discussed in this article.
Anyone who has worked with acrylics and oils knows what a problem this can be when your trying to take a picture of a painting. This is not as much a issues for a artist working with watercolors
Digital Art vs Traditional ArtFollowing the article I wrote for ArtHistoryProject Digital Art - Why it's such a popular medium I wanted to bring to you another topic for discussion. It has been a prevailing topic for a while now around the internet and amongst community members in respects to Digital Art and Traditional Art.Digital Art vs Traditional Art3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Digital Art: is a general term for a range of artistic works and practices that use digital technology as an essential part of the creative and/or presentation process.
Traditional Art: refers to fine arts that use the old methods for creating artwork, such as pens, brushes, clay and other tools. Although traditional arts has different techniques than digital arts, but in fact, the different forms of art are all related to each other by the same concept, which also involves digital arts.
Art Theft And Hot Linking With WDWParksGalMy dear friend WDWParksGal, formerly a Community Volunteer, recently discovered that one of her deviations was being "high jacked", or the proper used termed, "hot linked". This is a very serious issue that not only affects the deviant, but also deviantArt. We have been overwhelmed with this issue the last few weeks causing many stock providers and too many manipulators to change the way they handle their deviations and sites. A few have emptied their gallery and left dA completely.Art Theft And Hot Linking With WDWParksGal3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Since I had the opportunity, I asked her if she would like to write an article concerning this matter, and she jumped at the chance! So following is WDWParksGal thoughts on this situation.
I have been creating Photomanipulations for about six-years now. I have learned a lot, not just by experimenting with my PhotoShop Elements Programs that I have purchased over the years, but by watching YouTube tutorial videos, talking to other Manipulators, reading

You wake up, go get some breakfast, open your laptop to check your mail, facebook, and DeviantArt, and you notice that your inbox is suddenly flooded with messages. What on earth just happened? Well, you got a DD. It's time to celebrate! Your artwork is being recognized as worthy of being featured to the entire DeviantArt community, how incredible is that?! It is quite incredible indeed, however, some of the things you might have to deal with because of this Daily Deviation might not be so awesome. This article attempts to cover some of the many ways to deal with both the positive and negative attention a Daily Deviation might bring your way.
Dealing with the positive:
