Draw/Colour my OC Competition **CLOSED****The competitions are closed, and now it's time for judging**Draw/Colour my OC Competition **CLOSED**2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been quite a while since I put together a journal, but it needed to happen since I'm holding my first ever competition.
The competition will be split into two categories, drawing a full artwork, and colouring one of my own line artworks. Of course the people who draw will have a longer period of time to work on their artworks ...And the more entries the better. *hint hint, nudge nudge* XDD <3
Competition 1 - Drawing
So all you have to do is simply create an artwork of any medium (Digital, traditional, etc) of one or more of my original characters. Please stay away from anything too risque (Keep it PG~), but feel free to add other characters including your own OC's and existing characters from anime, etc.
You can pick any characters out of this list- (Sorry about some of the pictures being so old. I've been concentrating mostly on my big project which i have going on)
Feel free to ask any
Tip of the Day: Playing the Game of LifeI used to spend all my free time on games. Arcade games, card games, home entertainment systems... etc. Until I found the best game of all - LIFE. Not the board game but the real thing.Tip of the Day: Playing the Game of Life3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You only get one life and there are many levels that you can pass. Try to think of life as a game. Always trying to get to that "next level." Identify what you could achieve to get to the "next level" in your life and put your energy into it!

Many of you are probably aware that we did a giveaway on Tumblr and Facebook a while back - don't worry we haven't forgotten about it.
We apologize for the delay; we were busy with preorders.
Tumblr winners have been notified, but there is a problem with Facebook due to privacy settings.
We could only see the list of people who shared the post AND had a "public" profile. And as you all know, many people have their Facebook on private because of security reasons. We didn't know this before the giveaway because we aren't that familiar with Facebook.
To make up for this, we are giving away

A: Commissions are paid requests, meaning you pay me and I would draw for you whether using Money or deviantART points .
Q: How can I commission you?
A: Please send me a note if you're interested with the form below.

'Ello there! If you've been on any social media site, you most likely in one form or another have used an emoticon. An emoticon is an icon that expresses emotion. Such as
Emotes are an easy way to express yourself and I'm going to teach you how to shade some.
Almost all emotes are sized to be 15x15 (unless you are making a larger one; tutorial by IceXDragon described here). You can use lots of programs to make them. I use MS Paint to make my emotes because I believe it's the easiest to control but you can use whatever you like.
An emote's outline will look like this (You can use it if you want. ) :
Here's what it looks like at a bigger scale.
Emotes should look circular like the one above. I would recommend this size for all emotes at a standard size level. At this stage, I like to mess with the emote to see what k

Poetry Basics: EmotionsEmotions in poetryPoetry Basics: Emotions2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Writing, at its very base, is communication. We write to communicate — with someone else, with ourselves — when we write, we arrange words in a manner that is intended to be read. This is very important because, no matter what or how you write, this one basic fact never changes. If you get stuck at any point, you can come back to this sturdy foundation. I am writing to communicate; what do I want to communicate?
Often, the answer is emotions: how you feel, or how you want your reader to feel. As Gregory Corso wrote, "You must feel! It's beautiful to feel!"
We all feel, but how we express our feels is a matter of perspective. If we are too flippant with our choice of words, our readers will think we are shallow. If we are too brooding and deliberate, our readers may find us incomprehensible. Finding a balance takes work and dedication.
But that work and dedication is what distinguishes
Happy new year!It's a little late post here, but here's a sketch I did for new years (: Thank you guys for your support through 2014!Happy new year!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've had a rough year, especially in the first half. Life is not the same this year, and for someone who has been used to being able to dedicate 100% of her time to work and nothing else, challenging family relationship strains and adapting to life with a girlfriend was difficult--even if it was a good change and great learning experience. I'm not nearly as prolific as before, and sometimes I even find it difficult to be as creative as before, because I can no longer afford to think about my work as much. In contrast, I learned a lot more about taking care of others and myself, even if what I learned was how little I know about taking care of others and myself. Instead of contemplating my story and characters, I thought more about how hard it is to be kind and understanding. I tried really hard to make myself be more compassionate; my aloof nature made it so that very

"Advertise your art"
Just because you have the ability to create a group; it doesn't mean you NEED to!
What is the point in creating a group that has no specific purpose when you're already on DevArt?!
"Oh, I'll create a group that will show any kind of photo"
Why create such a group when you can just hit "photography" on the DevArt front page?
"I'll create a group that'll display the work of anyone that wants to draw attention to their art"
Why create a group for that when it's already DevArt's PRIMARY PURPOSE?!

my deviantart story :DMy first time on deviantart was 7 long years ago, on my first account, silentsasukemy deviantart story :D10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
here is my first dA upload!
I joined because I was playing on a site called gaiaonline and I saw people had included links to their deviantart accounts in their signatures in the forums, and it piqued my interest.
Since I was beginning to draw art for people on there, I wanted to start a gallery too (aside from my photobucket account - I maxed out some albums with all my uploads lolololol)
I was a mouse user during the whole time on that old account. I used programs like open canvas 3 and MSPaint, as well as my scanner for pen and pencil drawings. I think deviantart was a great way for me to share the work that I was proud of.
What I appreciated a lot from the dA community was the positive feedback I got from other users! They usually point out what kinds of things I was doing well on, which only spurred me to do it better next time and try to improve the things not mentioned s

These exclusive interviews only from deviantART at Epic Games HQ with Gears producers Cliff Bleszinski and Rod Fergusson and Gears artists Chris Perna, Wyeth Johnson, Shane Caudle and the rest of the Gears artists gang reveal what it takes to make a team of sorcerers to conjure, capture and render pure mayhem for our videogame rapture.
