PokeCollab: Hoenn is complete!Thanks to DILAGO for putting it all together! Here it is guys! Looks awesome!PokeCollab: Hoenn is complete!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Thanks again for participating! Looking forward to more activities with you awesome guys!
Hello fellow deviants! So me and DILAGO have this cool idea of a collaboration and we want you guys, the community, to be involved! It'll be fun! We got the idea from ItsJustin, where he and many artists collabed to draw all Generation 1 Pokémon. They will be doing it again this time for Generation 2, starting this month. So we thought it would be fun to do Generation 3, as a way to revive Hoenn because I know we all miss Hoenn and the Pokémon, and it deserves a remake.
Got nothing to do? Join us fellow deviants in this collaboration. Spare some time before Pokémon X and Y are released.
So here's how it goes, just go to this

I didn't loathe at myself wishing that I could "draw feet" when working on a piece at the spot where I have to draw feet on the picture.
I didn't go to further schooling to let someone hand me a piece of paper on their own terms and timeframe telling me if I'm "capable of art" or not.
I took things into my own hands.
A couple of common phrases to make to artists who are (of the person who believes that they're) "inexplicably too good" that annoy me are:
"Ugh, I really wish I had your talent. Why are you so good!?"
"You're so lucky. I wish I could do what you do".
"I could never pull this off the way you pull it off."
Now, I understand that there are certain levels of aptitudes and paces that different people learn by, so don't get the idea of this entry wrong. But, really, let me make an illustration here:

Ry's Favourite Artists Featuring: Willow-SanHi there its me Hainanese Chicken with Ryce. I feel like doing something I have never done before, I want to feature some of my favourite artists that I have been following for years, lets begin by someone I found randomly on Deviantart years ago and caught my eyes. Her name is Willow-San :iconwillow-san:Ry's Favourite Artists Featuring: Willow-San2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Willow-San is a french artist who's art style caught my attention... umm ok I gota be honest, I saw a pikachu and I clicked on her profile :iconmingplz: (I CANNOT RESIST A PIKACHU OK) BUT what I discovered was a whole new universe of art perfection, in the world of the great and mighty Willow-San with pretty vibrant colors and amazing line work and comedy gold humour!

A Note on Daily Deviation FeaturesAt ten features into my tenure as Community Volunteer for Abstract & Surreal Photography I am noticing a certain trend in response to abstract and surreal Daily Deviations. I shall address some of the recurring themes here, and hopefully answer some questions along the way. At this point I would like to mention that I am talking about a small and vocal minority, and I sincerely thank the overwhelming majority for supporting the featured artists and their work. You're what makes this site such a great community.A Note on Daily Deviation Features2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
With that said, let's get to the troublesome themes I am coming across.
The "This is crap!" Argument
As an observer and a critic, you're entitled to think that something isn't very good. However, exclaiming as such on the comments of a piece of work that an artist has spent time and energy creating is not only counter-productive, but rude and insulting, especially if it's not followed up with some advice about how you think they could make their

Sketchbook Pro 6So most of you know that I'm a Sketchbook Pro user.Sketchbook Pro 62 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.
We still have the cleverly-designed user interface, that makes it easy on the eyes and mind when we're brainstorming and sketching. With the handful of new tools introduced, we still have a clutter-free drawing environment, and man, there's some awesome tools this time around. I'll go down the list:
The Brush Library
The main brush toolbar itself has a click-and-drag function, allowing you to store all your often-used brushes in each of the "lanes". You then can click the button on the upper-right and then a fu

You will be judged on how creative you are and not on your drawing capabilities. You will also be judged on just how much I like it.
All styles are welcome, every medium type is welcome as long as I can clearly see your artwork, then its all welcome.
Many of you have commented on that fact that it will be a crowded picture, if you are struggling for time then please include the kids: Kaja, Draco and Yaddiya in your artwork.
You can draw my characters at what ever age you feel like, so if you want to draw them as toddlers, draw them as toddlers.
So now its time for me to do a contest. Back in 2013 not entirely sure when I said I wanted to do a contest with you guys drawing the Saffeen Family when Tigress was a teenager.

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This

3 Cracks in the ShipAnother reflection on the attitude of shippers these days. This one might be a bit more critical than the last one, which was simply an observation;3 Cracks in the Ship2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Has anyone else noticed this trend for shippers to argue that nothing is CANON, or confirmed, as an excuse or attempt to equate all non canon pairings to be on the same level? They create this false dichotomy of "Canon vs Everything else. Therefore everything else is equally likely". The problem with this type of mentality is that it is flawed because even among the non-canon pairings, some pairings are simply more likely and logical than the others. In other words, an appeal to ignorance. Or as I like to call it, the "anything is possible" non argument.
2) Another thing I've noticed is that most proponents of crack pairings will claim that there are tonnes of hints for their pairing. When I confront them about this claim, I usually get one of three reactions:
A) They use an argument that has already been refuted countless times (ei. Th

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject

I groaned as I woke up, facedown in the pillow. Pushing myself up, I remembered what I had done. The room I was in was small, the bed next to the wall, a little nightstand and an empty closet. A small window told me that it was a little past twilight.
My lower abdomen was bandaged again, and I huffed in annoyance: I'm sick of getting hurt! Slowly, as to not cause any more pain, I got out of the bed, stiffly walking to the door.
It was indeed a small boat, because only thirteen steps later I reached another door. Not to my surprise, I saw Japan'

The least important, but worth a mention. Honestly, I think the graphics were a testament to how rushed out this game really was. They were a downgrade from RE5. Most objects and side characters were angular, while any close-ups just looked terribly grainy.
