As all of you should know, August 13th is a very special day for lefties everywhere! It is Left Handers’ Day – a day where we can all get together freely and talk about our scissor preferences, smudged writing and how many times we’ve heard: “Hey! Are you left-handed?”.
Of course, we can do that any day. But on the 13th of August we have an awesome excuse. And once again, we’re providing you with the perfect excuse to put on that thinking cap and grab your art supplies to create something awesome f

Hello everyone~ After the success of our Icon Contest;
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!March 17th is traditionally known as St. Patrick's Day, a time to celebrate the Irish, feast, and enjoy all things green. It commemorates Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Among numerous achievements, St. Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland, at least according to legend. Today, there are parades around the world to celebrate the day. And for many, St. Patrick's Day is a reminder that spring is on its way!Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
But, of course, there's more to Irish culture than green, clovers, and good luck. One of the many interesting traditions of the Irish culture involves the Blarney Stone, found at Blarney Castle outside of Cork. Visitors come from all over the world to participate in the castle's famous

Odyssey Propulsion 3Maya has finally taken the knife to Paul. Will her incisions be surgical and freeing or murderous and final, an act of love or an act of vengeance?Odyssey Propulsion 32 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Whose story will Paul trust – Maya’s or Lysanna’s?
Is Paul really just a random victim or has there always been a special fate or predetermined bit of prophecy awaiting him which is now about to be revealed?
There are only three more chapters left, three delicious spaces to be filled in our attempt to achieve literary immortality… Well, at least, in our attempt to achieve creating a story to be told around summer campfires to scare the hell out of the new kids. What we need is a mind-melting fate or test to now be revealed to Paul, one which he must decide to accept or take flight from, one with worldwide consequences for the human race as well as Paul’s own singular soul, one with a real possibility of leaving only eternal madness as its legacy.

Is Paul’s final scream the sound of his soul being released?
Can he have an existence outside of his corporeal being, outside “nothingness?”
Or is this spectral plane the only reality to the trusted – the only viewing platform offering a truly objective view?
ONLY TWO(!!!) chapters left, and still we don’t know the possible parameters of the alien invasion. Obviously, in chapter 7, being the penultimate piece of storytelling, all consequences and secret alignments of forces must be revealed. And the set-up for the gut-grating, mind-mulching clim
I Will Not Sell OutI will not draw pokemon just because I want to milk favorites.I Will Not Sell Out2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will not upload every fucking thing I do just because I want to milk pageviews.
I will not change my DeviantART name just to prove my worth to myself.
I will not leave DeviantART just to get watchers on another blog or site, and then come back claiming DA is forgiven.
If I ever leave, I will not do it because I'm ashamed of the DeviantART community, not including those who actually love art. I will do it because I want or need to leave.
I will not categorize my art into a separate category just to get on the front page.
I won't take trades just to make other people happy.
I will not open up commissions just so people can pay me way less than what my art is worth.
I will draw what I want, upload what I want, comment on what I want, and stay on DeviantART as long as I want. Because it is what I want to do, NOT what the community wants me to do.
Please be careful WHAT you SELL for POINTS!Dear members,Please be careful WHAT you SELL for POINTS!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
as we all know this delicious new function has been enabled by DeviantART recently which allows you to sell content for points and keep the amazing amount of 80% of your share.
Overall this is a nice new function and we can't wait to see what you will do with it. We just want to warn you to be careful about one certain thing:
You should not sell high res files of your work for a small amount of points.
The few dimes people will spare by not having to pay shipping costs can do you badly.
There are a lot of companies, that take your dear work and print it on T- Shirts, books, posters and what not.
And in the past those companies at least had to put the efford into taking your art and retouching it. But shall you think about selling high res files for a small amount of points, greedy companies as that will have it even easier to take your art, distribute it big, and give you nothing of your share!

Best Foot Forward ContestYeah, this is like...a day late but I had to get everything ready.Best Foot Forward Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As many know I had to cancel my last contest due to the judges' lack of well...judging. So, I've decided to hold a smaller contest in light of it. Given the portfolio thing was a bust, I've decided to try something smaller but still there will be no need to create a deviation to enter the contest.
What you must do: (EVERYONE READ THESE CAREFULLY!)
1. Choose a single deviation among your gallery (It can be anything: painting, sculpture, literature, poetry, prose, photography, etc. I do mean ANYTHING.)
2. Enter your deviation via a link in a comment below
3. Answer the following questions in the 'DESCRIPTION' of your deviation (please copy and paste these questions so I know which one you're answering)
1) What is the subject in this piece? (It can be anything or a number of things)
2) What was your drive for creating this piece?
3) Tell me all about how you created this deviation (no word limit)
4) What do you

Artips#3 - Scanning and post-editing trad. artworkHello everyone!Artips#3 - Scanning and post-editing trad. artwork4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been ages since I wrote one of these Artips journals...! Life's been busy... but now we're back on tracks and ready to cover a new topic.
I know that I said that the next issue would be on Planning and composing a picture, and it's already half-written, but I need to do some more research on good tutorials, so I figured we could switch to this issue first. Planning and composing will be the topic for the next Artips journal.
The previous issues of Artips:
[Artips #1] Why you *do* have talent
[Artips #2] Originality and personal style
Artips #3 - Scanning and post-editing traditional artwork
How I transfer my artwork into digital format is, surprisingly, one of the questions I get asked most often. Many beginners don't know how to do this properly, while it's obviously a very important part of displaying your artwork

Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.
PixieColdBorn in Berlin, Germany, Svenja Jödicke (AKA PixieCold), has established herself as an incredible artist. Painting with watercolors, inks, and markers on watercolor paper, she's able to create a surreal world filled with nature goddesses and vibrant colors and patterns.PixieCold8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
All deviations featured are available as Prints.
Eyes have always been focus of her artwork, as "they are able to tell unspoken stories."
Besides her work with watercolor, PixieCold started experimenting with makeup and photography as well, using real insects (live and dead) in her work.

How tentaculas are madePeople keep asking about Love and Tentacles, but I'm sorry to say that comic is as good as dead. I might draw a picture once in a while because Frida can be fun to draw, but I don't even think about LaT most of the time, unlike my other comics which enter my head daily.How tentaculas are made2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But people are apparently dying to know if Tom and Frida ever had kids, and if it could even be done. So I'll give you and explanation on that.
Tentaculas have reproductive tentacles around their waist (the thin pink ones that gets thick when they get aroused). Males and females rub them against each other and release semen and eggs into water (in these modern times its usually a bathtub unless they're hippies). They are left to float around until the fertilized eggs hatch and the tiny young eats the un-fertilized eggs. Then they move on to swallowing each other, until only one is left. Sounds unpleasant, but that is why tentaculas in general are very healthy and handicaps are almost unheard of unless they get inj
