PE: How to Make a Large EmoticonHow to Make a Large EmoticonPE: How to Make a Large Emoticon2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have been asked many times how I make my big emoticons. How I shade it, dither it, etc, so I am going to make a step by step tutorial on how I make large emoticons. Even if you already know how to, you might find something useful in this. Be aware that I am using photoshop elements 3.0, so this technique can be preformed in almost any program that has layers and custom pencil brush sizes and or a hollow and filled circle tool. If your program doesn't have layers or adjustable circles of any kind (whether it be the pencil tool or the circle tool), you should be able to get around it somehow, but if you can't figure it out, I would recommend gimp. It works on Macs, Windows, or Linux computers. You can get a free download at gimp.org.
Start by making a hollow circle. The color of it should be a really dark shade of the color you want the emote to be. I'm making a blue emote, so

On my profile page, I feature a new deviation every day (or two or three). The piece is usually something that caught my eye. Could be an amazing digital painting, a fun stamp, a quick photograph that made me smile, perhaps a piece for a weekly theme, whatever. However, it moved me enough to share it with my visitors. Below is a list of the artists which I featured during October 2012. I am showcasing different pieces from their gallery in the hope of showing them a bit more love.

Emoticon Awards Voting - Extended:iconupdatedsignplz: At the request of several people, and to allow as many people the opportunity as possible, we have decided to extend the voting period for one week. The new voting deadline is March 14, 2013.Emoticon Awards Voting - Extended1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Kindly note there was also some questions as to some of the deviants listed in the newcomer category and the fact that their first emote was created in late 2012. Due to the fact that the Emote Awards had an erratic timeframe before now (an uncertain date from December to December), we allowed those additional 2 nominations as they would have been in a window where they would have been excluded. Now that we have moved to a Jan 1 - Dec 31 timeframe, that should not be a problem in the future.
We'd like to welcome everyone to the 2012 Emote Awards.
First of all, we would like to thank everyone who took the time to make nominations. We were staggered at the number of people who participated! Now, before w

The Pied Piper
In the tale of the Pied Piper, we have a village overrun with rats. A man arrives dressed in clothes of pied (a patchwork of colors) and offers to rid the town of the vermin. The villagers agree to pay a vast sum of money if the piper can do it – and he does. He plays music on his pipe which draws all the rats out of the town. When he returns for payment – the villagers won't cough up so the Pied Piper decides to rid the town of children too! In most modern variants, the piper draws the children to a cave out of the town and when the townsfolk finally agree to pay up, he sends them back. In the darker original, the piper leads the children to a river

YOUNG JUSTICE: CANCELLATIONWith this online art community, we have a unique opportunity to connect with our kindred. We must avail ourselves of this experience, for it may never come again.YOUNG JUSTICE: CANCELLATION1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, YOUNG JUSTICE fans, the sad news is now official. This very popular show will -- Reach-- its abrupt and premature end with the conclusion of Season Two. It is with a heavy heart that I confirm the reports. Of course, none of us was able to say anything about it since last year. It was a very fun ride. As for the reasons behind the cancellation, I can only say that it was beyond the control of WB Animation, and that the decision was made by the powers at Cartoon Network (bless 'em). On behalf of the producers, and the rest of our dedicated crew at YOUNG JUSTICE, I would like to express our deepest gratitude to all the loyal fans who supported us, who shared the dream with us, and who will continue to love the YOUNG JUSTICE universe

Reduced to AshesA Phoenix to Arise
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is whether this brutal brush with her own mortality will result in the pop goddess pulling back from the edge – or only drive her to new heigh

Michael's (Evanescencesithlord6) Portfolio of 2011Hello everyone in the Soul Poets group!Michael's (Evanescencesithlord6) Portfolio of 20113 years ago in Personal More Like This
My name is Michael, and I'm a musician, and writer! I mostly write for the purpose of song creation.
A lot of times I write lyrics, for songs... But any poems I write turn in to lyrics,
So basically I'm always writing something I can sing. I've always been a musician, and music is my form of art.
But I've also spent a long time writing too... Can't sing too many songs without words, so that's where that comes in.
Writing has really been, as cliche as it sounds, a huge therapeutic process for me.
I've been through some really dark things, and instead of going completely insane, or checking in with a shrink,
I've written and dreamed, and played music (Those are strictly my results, if you have issues, and you need help,
please get it!) I'm pretty strong willed, so that's why that works for me...
My life long dream is to be a singer! Rock Star status!
It's coming close! I'm so excited that hopefully life can start shining bright, and I have my writi

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.
