$19- Start Drawing: Techniques for Pencil Portraits
Seven years ago when I was struggling to learn portraiture, I remember saying to my mom, "When I "get" this, I'm going to teach everyone how to do it!" So here we are, seven years later and I'm ready to share the knowledge I've discovered!
After years of studying with professional portrait artists, by reading tons of books on how to draw the face, and by studying the works of master artists such as Sargent, Bouguereau, and Vanderpoel, I'm ready to share the most helpful information I've learned with you all!

Reasons to Love dA's Lit Community: Part 1
I love the literature community because it helps my writing and I also love to read what other people write and the ideas they come up with.
I love the literature community here on dA for various reasons, and one is that they are always supportive when you need some support or help. They always seem to be willing to give advice when it is asked for, or to just talk literature in often. Literature is one of the most powerful forms of art with the capability to shape the world and our cultures as we know it. Even t
how to revise poetryThere a decent number of very talented poets on dA and, if you’re willing to dig hard enough, you can find some truly excellent work.how to revise poetry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you’re not willing to dig hard, but you still browse around casually in some of the better administered groups, you’ll likely stumble upon a few excellent works and a good number of good works that impress you but that don’t quite make the top grade.
And if you just browse around the poetry on dA, giving no effort to separate the good from the bad, a too-large percentage of what you’ll come across is what I call Conceptually Reductive Adolescent Pettiness, or CRAP for short.
The secret to writing better poetry, whether you’re a beginner or a frequently published poet, is in how well you revise. Like most creative things, a great poem is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration. The problem with really bad poetry is that it’s neither inspired or well ed

Odyssey Propulsion 6
We want to especially thank an elite core of Odyssey II writers:
Those deviants truly embodying the spirit of the project by continuing to create and submit next chapters – no matter the story’s refusal to go along with their proposed direction. The zeitgeist is a powerful force, but the artist must know when to sail against the been-there-done-that. And our writers, artists and poets have been doing that week after week. So many artists and writers continue to send in wonderful material week after week.
We have decided to extend the writing deadline for the last chapter to December 31 and we're
Self-Injury Awareness 2013 Fears vs DreamsThe FactsSelf-Injury Awareness 2013 Fears vs Dreams2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
March 1st is a day that calls attention to a sensitive subject that takes on many meanings and forms for people. Self-injury, or self-harm, is the act of deliberately harming oneself physically, usually as a mechanism for expressing distress or coping in difficult situations. Self-injury is commonly associated with cutting, but can also refer to burning, scratching, bruising, bleaching, overdosing, some forms of hair pulling and picking, and breaking bones. Binging and purging may also be considered self-injuring behavior.
The reasons behind self-injury and the people who self-injure vary greatly, but one thing to keep in mind is that it does not matter what culture, ethnicity, gender, or age you are: there are people who have injured themselves from all walks of life. Triggering events like bullying, trauma, abuse, school, work pressures, bereavement and difficult relationships can all contribute to the distress one feels that leads them to self-injure, but

This ones I called new emomos;
i have a problemwith people reading my words. the internet probably receives only one-fourth of all the shit i write, and i put a lot on the internet. i hate people touching my journals or going on my stash on da or even my tumblr and reading my private posts. i hate too when i am writing and someone leans over my shoulder to see what i write. i become self-conscious and insecure that whatever i am writing is not impressive enough, because it usually is not, and i lose that thread of inspiration i was turning into words, and stop whatever i am doing, completely, and when i stop i NEVER resume. a piece is not as good as it could be as when it is written in the heat versus when it is written after the heat. when i was a little kid i made my own substitute for the alphabet so no one could read my diary; it worked, and eventually i could read it without the code. i think i am going to start doing that. i cannot write with the conscious of knowing people are going to read my stuff or that it is being read.i have a problem2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What new.So, since 26 October I'm back in hospital, third time in last two months. I know it's getting boring for you, I have honestly enough of this as well. I have no idea how long they will keep me here this time, but I think it will be much longer than previous time. My organism seems to be stupid pussy and it doesn't want to cooperate with me, asshole. I don't have anything new to say about my activity. I won't be able to work on commissions and other pictures till I'll leave. Not saying about recovering to strenth. Currently making 200 meters on hospital's hallway makes me tired like after 10 minutes of running. And I walk in turtle pace.What new.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's dissapointing, I know. I wish to get back home, fully healthy not worrying about anything at all. And I know that for pretty long time it won't be possible. For now I was lucky enough to avoid any surgeries, even if they planned to cut me several times. For now antibiotics works, I started to eat two days ago, after three weeks of being feed by spec
Holiday Card Project 2013 Wrap-UpHoliday Card Project 2013 Wrap-Up1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The Holiday Card Project returned in 2013, and it was a total hit! We received over 5,000 cards from 2,000 deviants in more than 60 different countries! A ton of deviants reached out to us, interested in helping to distribute cards to their local hospitals! With these volunteers' help, we distributed cards to 22 hospitals in the US and abroad!
The majority of the hospitals we worked with distributed the cards themselves, either through their own volunteers or by placing cards on the food trays of patients. We received letters of thanks from some hospitals, and a few even shared our cards on their Facebook pages! One thing all of the hospitals and patients had in common: they loved your cards!
One of our biggest surprises this year came from Bank of America! A deviant who works there got word of our project and told some people around the cor

In this toolbox you will find helpful tips for digital typography. For those of you new to the topic, let's start with a short explanation
Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible.
Pretty simple, eh? Basically as you are reading this you are "reading typography". What I will refer to in this article is digital artistic typography, though. This is not the everday typography you see on street signs, books or on websites.
It can be anything! Which is amazing and scary at the same time

The properties are:
Lets see what can we do with these new fancy stuffs!
What does these attributes do?
1) content--> it is used to insert generated content in your HTML (Journal body for DA). Don't worry, don't worry! I'll tell you what is this "generated" content!
2) counter-increment --> it is used to insert numbers (or counters) to sections or sub-sections. I'll explain what "sections" and "sub-sections" are don't worry again!
3) counter-reset --> it is used to reset the counters
All these 3 properties are generally interlinked and are used together. But the "content" property can be used alone and has some cool usage.
