Colors Poetry ContestColors Poetry Contest!!Colors Poetry Contest3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
When I started the Wordsmiths group here at DA, I had three goals - produce a new sitehttp://word-smyths.com/ , an ezine http://artsmyths.wordpress.com/ and a paid poetry contest. I have accomplished the first two. I am pleased to be able to say that our wordpress site is receiving daily submissions from authors outside of DA, as that gives all of you featured there more exposure.
I am pleased to announce my third project - a poetry contest with a cash prize awarded to the first three place winners.
The contest will be poetry only and will run from August 1 - October 31, 2012. The theme is "Color". You can choose to write about one color, or many. You can describe a situation, person, object, scene - anything, but describe it in color(s). How it looks...makes you feel.
The prizes will be as listed below: (It would be helpful to have a Paypal account in order to be paid.)

New accountI've been planing for months to create a new account where I will ONLY post tutorials, free linearts, adoptables, stock photos( male anatomy mainly because there isn't many good male stock) and poser figures that can be used as drawing reference and in photomanipulations.New account1 year ago in Personal More Like This
*Linearts- I'll post traditional and digital linearts of my art and other pieces that I will never finish.
*Tutorials- coloring in my style, how to draw hair, hair styles, types of eyes, types of lips
*Stock photos-MALE ANATOMY- I'll take photos of my boyfriend who is the muscular type( similar to Thor ). These can be helpful for those who want to study muscles and draw comic super heroes.
*Poser Figures- I just got Poser Pro and I am eager to use it. I'll provide poser figures for drawing reference and for use in photomanipulations. The special thing about these is that they will be ACTION POSES seen from different perspectives.
*adoptables: I'll sell from time to time.

Custom info [ON HOLD]Because people have been asking. XDCustom info [ON HOLD]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I use two base "styles".
Th e price of the bigger adopt, is naturally more expensive, But it is also *better* IMO. I have a larger canvas to work with, and I think it looks nicer over all
The big!adopts start at 300
The smaller adopt is cheaper, but without sacrificing quality. The smaller adopts start from 160 , ~
for both styles, I may raise the price depending on difficulty. Don't worry, I'll tell you if the price increases.
If you think your adopt might cost more than 500 points, I suggest you just commission me instead.
NO RESELLING. you can gift it, but you absolutely can NOT sell
please be patient. I am known to be a slow worker. I do have the real world to attend to after all.
PLEASE BE REASONABLE. I will NOT draw clusterfucked characters. especially not on a little chibi adopt!
Miss Frizzle is a Time LordI'm not sure if I ever posted about this before, but an invitation to the Carmen Sandiego/Waldo shipping fan club reminded me: I'm pretty sure Miss Frizzle from The Magic School Bus is a Time Lord. (Actually, a Time Lady. But now you know what I am talking about.)Miss Frizzle is a Time Lord5 years ago in Personal More Like This
She has a thorough comprehension of science and history. She speaks in a long winded, whimsical manner and her style of dress is eccentric. Taking up a job as a teacher on Earth--as The Doctor has done at least twice--suggests a fascination with the human culture of curiosity, exploration, and resilience, as does her catch phrase "Take chances; make mistakes; get messy!" This occupation would also satisfy the need for companionship which comes with being among the last of her kind.
The bus is a TARDIS--a shapeshifting, time traveling space vessel disguised as a commonplace Earth object, which is suggested to be partially sentient or "alive". The bus is filled with all manner of whimsical mechanical parts ("mesmerglobber") unh

When you guys come up to us at conventions and start shaking or crying and explaining, "how much we've done for you" with our weird videos and weird selves, don't you everrr feel like you are wasting our time and you should never ever feel the need to apologize to us for telling us your very personal stories or for crying, or anything! You are never wasting our time, and when you take a moment to talk to us about such personal things that happened in your life, we are honored & it reminds us that we do these silly things not for our own amusement, but for you as well. I say it all the time but you guys keep us going, and I mean it. When you tell us these things, I can't help but want to just take you over to a less crowded area and hug you and cry with you. I'm telling you all of this because I want you all to know that expressing yourself

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

Guardians of the GalaxyGuardians of the Galaxy1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Guardians of the Galaxy is the new sci-fi adventure we've all been waiting for, jam-packed with the perfect amount of comedy, action, and Chris Pratt. The newest Marvel movie featuring six anti-heroes and their journey to become actual heroes has stolen our hearts. But how much do you know about the movie and the comic that inspired it?
Deviant AlexGarner was one of the official cover artists for the Guardians of the Galaxy covers! (He's since switched over to working on covers for DC Comics).
PaulRenaud is another amazing artist and deviant who has worked on Guardian of the Galaxy covers for Marvel.

34 ways to get inspirationThere are many people who are suffering from an artblock, or just don't have enough inspiration. As being always inspired myself (but not always motivated ), I can help you!34 ways to get inspiration4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here is a big list of things you could try. I suggest you try everything on the list if the block is really huge. Big chance something helps!
Also, sorry for my english. I'm Dutch. The dutch version can be found here: http://oekaki.nl/117062.html
More ideas are of course very welcome!
This is probably the best thing to do. If you wait, it will be harder to start drawing again and you're making the block bigger and bigger. Maybe you can try scribbling random shapes so you get/keep the feeling.
Look at other people's work
Speaks for itself. You're probably already doing that by being on this site. But maybe you can take more time for this. Try to look at a nice piece of artwork for 10 minutes.

A lot people seem to get inspired by music.
