'Let The Light In (LTLI) is a new tutorial series from the group Good-Intention that will focus on the hows and whys of committing good deeds around the deviantART community.
The first edition of this series will focus on how to create an art feature in order to help fellow friends and artists gain some exposure for their work, regardless of the media. This is a fantastic way to brighten someone's day, and promote some positivity.
What Is An Art Feature?
An Art Feature is a journal (blog / article) that showcases deviations from one, or multiple artists. You may peruse the Art Feature Folder for some examples. Users choose to create art features for a number of reasons, from showcasing artwork they admire, to helping under-appreciated artists gain more views, to promoting art from their friends or watchers. No matter what the motivation, art features are a great way t

I Will Never Lose - A To Aru Majutsu No Index yaoiSo...my first ever fanfiction! A yaoi of Accelerator/Kamijyou Touma from To Aru Majutsu No IndexI Will Never Lose - A To Aru Majutsu No Index yaoi2 years ago in Personal More Like This
~No flames~ <3
A/N: I didn't want the sex into the story itself, I purely wanted kink, apologies!
I Will Never Lose.
"Ugh...Where am I?" Accelerator sat up and remembered it all.
The way Kamijyou Touma had stepped in during the Sisters experiment.
Accelerator had never liked to lose, especially not to a level 0.
He was going to get revenge.
He was going to find him.
Kamijyou Touma - the level 0 esper with the nullifying right hand.
Accelerator - the strongest level 5 in Academy City.
It was 00:37 am in Academy City when Accelerator had finally awoken after his battle with Touma, and now he was out for revenge.
Accelerator stalked through the shadows until almost 5am, that was when he heard Touma and Index arguing in the apartment just next to him. He came up with a plan, childish, maybe, but it was still a plan.
He found an Animal Doctor's office,

The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneySaw The Hobbit last night. It was very good... if a bit long. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for seeing all the little details interconnecting The Hobbit to Lord of the Rings and all that, but for the average watcher... eh... it kinda dragged. I overheard several people saying they fell asleep during the film, and I noticed more than once a number of people fidgeting and looking at their watches. Still, it's a damn fine movie and It's a shame we have to wait so long for the next two films.The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Having The Hobbit being written during the beginning of Lord of the Rings is pretty smart. You could effectively watch the 3 Hobbit movies and then immediately move right into the 3 Lord of the Rings movies. Kudos to Jackson for that, it'll be great to marathon run the two trilogies back to back.
This movie was, like the book, much lighter and funnier than The Lord of the Rings and I was surprised at how much from the books they actually kept. They

In creating her costume you have nothing to limit;
2) Draw in a sexual pose or in a very interesting perspective;
3) The background is not needed!;
4) The image size should be large!
As for, prizes:

for third place - free line-art.
I wish you all good luck!
The competition is held until April 1!
Mastering TypographyMastering TypographyMastering Typography3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typography is a rather obscure field, which is quite odd because typography is in everything you read. As such, it’s very important for a graphic designer to know everything there is to know about typography and preferably also the history and anatomy of typefaces. Bad typography is usually only consciously noticeable by type geeks (like me), however even someone who knows absolutely nothing about typography will find text with bad typography harder to read. In this article you will learn some basic principles and features to advance your typography.
Before we have a look at the features to improve your typography we have to select the right software. A few features which will be discussed in this article can be used pretty much regardless of the software but for most things you have to use genuine design software, so a program like Microsoft Word won’t suffice. You can achiev

Today I also submit a new photo (finally I tried to upload it with help of Sta.sh) so you should check it. I have many photos of nature especially macro of flowers, animals and drops from my holidays in one beautiful village near town Náchod. So if you'll like this one I'll surely submit more works like this.

•Stumbled upon the above picture on tumblr. I first imagined a highschool bully for Abbey for TΛB. The idea for Hana to be Abbey's older sister came some time afterwards when brainstorming Hana's backstory.
•Stumbled upon this picture as well. Primarly saved the image as clothing refs for Michiko Toyoda. I always commented on how Cara (who's name I didn't even know at the time) looked like an ideal daughter for Michiko.

It was at the post-office yesterday already, but I was delivering an oilpainting to a customer so I wasn't able to pick it up... T^T
Well, today I went to see a dentist and their office is right next to the post-office, so I got two birds with one stone! (and a 321€ bill for my teeth being fixed, omfg. x_x)

This image does not represent the truth that is my desk, though; usually it's cluttered with coffee-cups, trash and things that could be better suited elsewhere but I've left them on my table for whatever reason and they take up a lot space!

Suddenly, the silence was broken by the drunken voices of two soldiers. We stopped, waiting quietly as two SS soldiers staggered down the street towards us, taking swigs out of their flasks. One of them stopped in front of me, his lips turned into a drunken smirk. "Well whaddo we haf here ?" He slurred, looking down at me. I felt Benjamin's hand tighten on my shoulder. "A pretty 'ittle thing for a Jew, ain't she, Viktor?"

Stolen Art and How to Find ItPicture if you will that it's an ordinary day, you're goofing off on deviantArt with nothing to do, and suddenly, right there among "Newest Art", you see IT. One of the most beautiful images you've ever seen on dA. An image that just begs you to click it and fullview it. Of course, you simply must fave it - you can't bear the thought of another minute without that gorgeous photo of Delicate Arch or that beautiful watercolor mermaid or that super-hot fanart of Jessica Rabbit somewhere on your profile.Stolen Art and How to Find It7 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Did you ever stop to think that maybe you're dealing with stolen art?
Probably not, but your jaw might have dropped at the suggestion - what if that awesome photo or digital painting or vector you just faved WAS stolen? Unfortunately, the Internet being what it is, there are very few ways to be completely sure any given image wasn't stolen. But here are a few tips to determining whether or not it was.
1. It's in a stupid gallery.

Permission Issues and Art theft: It's sadly a common thing now.
It is a huge problem on deviantART/ internetz.
But wait! IDK what art theft is..Then Read this!
Art theft is unacceptable. Think about how long people spend on their works. And how much of themselves go into it. Now someone else has spent 0 seconds and claimed it as theirs. NO.
You must credit resources. That includes OCs, stocks, brushes, textures, snippets of code(no, changing the colors of a journal skin does not mean you made it) , tutorials(sometimes).
Written credits. Google images is not good enough.

Useful Tips on DrawingI am an Art student myself so I cannot promise any genius suggestions, the following factors are some things I came up over the year of drawing. Here I wanna make them into a list so I can always come back to this and use it while I draw. Here i go~Useful Tips on Drawing4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first step of drawing. Start planning by setting the genre of the piece, do you want it to be animal? people? realistic? fantastic? mostly scenery? no background? color tone? black and white? landscape? portrait? You can even start with a name for the piece if it helps. Gather references for form and color. Do NOT copy any people's work. If you are using people's textures or brushes, make sure to credit them as they asked.
Never rush this part, take your time and assemble the elements into the drawing. Move, turn, stretch things around until they are just the way you like it. Avoid composition problems such as everything's-lined-up or all-squished-together. Try things like overlaying and perspe
