It was fascinating to see all of the deviantART community's different depictions of their personal apocalypses. The imagination and quality of work that we received for the Darksiders: Your Last Days Contest was extremely impressive. So thank you, our dear deviantART community!
We'd also like to give a big "Thank you!" to Joe Madureira from Vigil Games for picking the three winners from the terrific Semi-Finalists. It was a tough job, and we sure are glad he stepped up to the challenge. Thanks, Joe Mad!
So whose visions of their last days really stood out among the rest? Let's check out the winners!

FIRST CONTEST "THREE TO TANGO!"Hello My Fellow DeviantsFIRST CONTEST "THREE TO TANGO!"2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Our first contest theme is:
THREE TO TANGO!
The theme is challenging. You have to draw an artwork using ONLY THREE COLOURS. Sounds fun right?. You can use different shades of the three colours but not distinct shades. For example, you cannot use sky blue and navy blue colours and claim them to be in one colour category.Black and white colours are not including in this category. You can use them along with the other three colours. I'm giving this leniency since it's our first contest .
The contest rules are as follows:
1. The colours can be of your own choice.
2. The number of colours should exactly be three.
3. No black and white artworks. For traditional artists, use colour pens or pencils etc.
4. The contest is for MEMBERS ONLY!
5. One deviation per member.
6. Backgrounds are not required but favourable.
7. Artwork can be digital or traditional.
8. No lineart or WIPs.
9. The work should be at least 75% yours. Do giv

I figured it out from black and white.
Seconds and hours.
Maybe they had to take some time.
I know how it goes from wrong and right.
Silence and sound.
Did they ever hold each other tight
Did they ever fight
We can make it 'til the end.
Nothing can come between
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us.
I figured it out.
Saw the mistakes of up and down.
Meet in the middle.
There's always room for common ground.

Fake art by Natmorley!Hi my friends!Fake art by Natmorley!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yep, another Journal about :iconnatmorley:
This is not meant to start a witchhunt, immature harrassment on her profile won't help anything!
Regarding her latest Journal, I asked some questions.
I wonder if she'll answer any of them...Of course, she didn't answer them
So, what's the fuss about her?
Her drawings are fake, simply as that.
How could you tell?
She makes a scribbly drawing and overlays the original photo in PS to make the shading, hair etc. look better. (OR she prints out the photo and scribbles over it, whatsoever...)
You can always make out some "ghosty shadows" in her works, these are the remainings of the original photo that she just couldn't hide properly.
Is there any proof?
Here's a older drawing of her (which she already deleted ) where you can clearly
How to get more Popularity and PageviewsFame is something a lot of people want to get on dA.How to get more Popularity and Pageviews6 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Many people know this - you log in and have little to no new messages.
So you want to get known, want to get your pictures out there. Many pageviews tell you that many people have visited your site and have taken notice of you.
This is giving everyone a good feeling
So here are some suggestions to reach this goal:
In order to get you have to give. Browse through the categories you like the most, and pick the pictures you like and comment on them. Don't only comment on the most professional pictures, the artist is most likely too busy to answer them all. Your chance of getting noticed is bigger when you comment on the works of unpopular artists, as they are more likely reading and answering your comment.
Important: Don't spam. No one likes mediocre comments that could fit every picture. Most people will just ignore you then, plus you could get banned. And don't only comment on pictures, also com

10 tips about drawing #3 - ShadingThird round of 10 simple and effective tips about drawing, this time a bit more spesific, time to delve into shading, the one area I feel I have progressed the most.10 tips about drawing #3 - Shading2 years ago in Personal More Like This
**This is my own personal take and oppinion about shading, take it with a grain of salt **
1. Shade and blend An extremely common way to shade, but not only overused but more often than not used incorrectly.
You lay down a value pref. with an HB or softer pencil and blend it into the paper from the dark to the light, but the thing here to remember is to not go too hard in blending at first, if you do it is very tricky to manipulate the values after.
Think of the tooth of the paper like grass, don´t just stomp them down on the first go, gently grace the paper with a blending stump/tissue/q-tip etc and once you start to approach the desired value you can go a little harder.
2. Directional blending Much as 1. but directional blending means you always blend following the curve of what you are drawi
Don't ART for free ...Note written under the influence of several recent situations ...Don't ART for free ...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I understand that not everyone can/like/love to draw - but that does not mean that some people have to treat 'drawing people' as children. A few days ago my friend asked me if I draw him a portrait of him and his girlfriend. I agreed without hesitation ... But when I told how much the portrait will be cost - he was angry with me, that I will not do it for free! I understand that it is my friend - but I spend my free time, energy, etc. on it. So it's no longer just fun for me. It becomes a way of life ...
I wish that those of us - involved in the drawing - were taken more seriously. Because it is a job like any other. Not sitting behind a desk in an office does not mean that I do not work as hard ...
The situation is very well illustrated here:

R.I.P. PockyIt's really hard for me to tell you this but Pocky passed away about 12 hours ago, at 1 pm Friday Oct 25th. I lost my balance in the colony cage and accidentally step on him who was behind me. He didn't die instantly. I thought he wouldn't. He could still fly and when I put him on my hand he had started panting. When I brought him inside my house, he had a fit then died.R.I.P. Pocky1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I can't stop crying now. I feel so horrible and hate myself. I miss him so much I can't stop crying and calling his name. It's so hard to accept his death. I can still feel him everywhere. Everything in my house reminds me of him. I can't sleep on my bed because I usually snuggled with him there before we went to sleep. I can't believe he had to go away like this. I feel so guilty no matter what I try to think of, no matter what my husband said. I can't even cry as harder as I want because he will be mad.
I don't know if Pocky knew his time would be up soon. But this month he wanted to cuddle more with me. He usually a
Friendly Fire“I'm only waiting for death to come.” That’s what my grandmother said to me after she turned 90 last summer. It broke my heart and I said to myself: “I'm never going to start another fight with her again.” Then I began to look back on my life and I wondered why our relationship never was any closer. Ever since I've been a teenager I’m taking friendly fire from her. That's how I feel. She didn't like my friends, she didn't like my haircut, she didn't like what I was wearing, she didn’t like my music, she didn’t like my skateboard. For all my life I have been holding a shield on my left arm so she cannot hurt me with her words. The bullets hitting the metal have been a constant noise of my life. But I couldn't conform to her values. She hated homosexuals and she was against anyone who didn't believe in her god. I sacrificed our relationship in order to become a decent human being. At least that’s what I thought. But of course that isFriendly Fire10 months ago in Personal More Like This

I get more attention that I was waiting for from some deviantArt admins.
(I will try to explain the situation here in my bad english, so sorry for my language)
-That started many time ago, when I saw how the admins use the rules not the same for everybody. Then I made some works against that behavior from the admins and the result it was many of my works deleted from here. In many of them no reason to justify to delete that.
-After that I was talking with the help desk about this situation. I ask him the reason to delete every single work from my gallery, he didn't get me an answer. He told me they use to delete reported works many months later because they don't have time to see everything. Then I ask him : so, why you have time to delete my works the same day I upload it here? He didn't get me an answer. So I sent a protest about this guy to deviantArt. I

Hey everyone. i figured a couple of people, specifically the people commissioning me, would like to know what is going on with me so here is a bit of an update. It's a long one so bear with me.
The guy i was supposed to be staying with decided at the very last minute (the morning i intended to move my stuff) that his sister would be staying with her kids and therefore i had to wait a couple of weeks. (which if you read the other journal stuff you'd know i couldn't do :S )
I called another guy back who was a bit worrying because he was so obscure but he ended up settling for $140 a week, dog was okay
