Contest Theme: Gingitsune Kaen
That's this guy right here:
All entries in this competition must be pictures of this specific character, who has been voted the most attractive male member of my Bleach Universe by no small amount during a somewhat recent poll. I've been looking to buff up the art on him for some time. But I've been busy spreading the love around, which leaves me the perfect opening to exploit him for use as contest fodder! And exploit him I will!
Contest Dates/Timetable: March 1st to April 1st - Midnight to Midnight (EST)
The contest has officially started and will end on the stroke of midnight (EST) on April 1st. Placements will be announced and prizes will be delivered before April 10th, during which time myself and the other four judges will sort out the scores and votes and selec

Welcome to the third of many Community Volunteer interviews! Community Volunteers are responsible for many things here on DA, one of them being Daily Deviations. Since Daily Deviations are the focus of this group, we thought you might enjoy interviews of the folks in control of the features! The third edition is with Thiefoworld, our Digital Art CV, we hope you'll enjoy the read!
1. Why did you choose to become a CV? Is the job what you expected it would be?
Well this is actually my second time as a CV, the first time was back in 2009 for Comics & Cartoons, I went back in 2012 for Digital Art. In both cases it was because I love the community and wanted to contribute in some way, to give back a little of what it has given me. I love featuring people, making activities, posting articles, etc.
It was better than I expected, the team is incredibly friendly and embracing and we support each other and talk a

dA Life #08: Hosting a Contest on dAWelcome to the eighth dA Life blog, a series created to help you enjoy your time on dA and use it's many tools for sharing your art, appreciating other people's art and taking part in the wonderful community that we have here.dA Life #08: Hosting a Contest on dA3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hosting a contest on dA is a really fun way to inspire other artists and do something positive for the community. If you've never run a contest before, it can seem like a daunting task so to make it a little easier, here are some things to consider before you create your contest and open it to the deviant public...
Your contest should have a theme. It can be as vague (Aliens, Summer, Cats) or as specific as you like (Alien Cats in Summer). When choosing your theme, take time to consider it's appeal to your potential entrants. A less specific theme is likely to attact more people as the scope for entries is wider. It depends on whether or not you want your contest to be huge - sometimes, bigger isn't always bet

We are planing phase two of the campaign! We will not stop just because we didn't reach our goal out of a first try! We will fight until we finally get there!
To everyone who donated and shared the campaign: Thank you! Your support is what helped us get even this far, we really couldn't have done without you! ;u; As I said above, we will continue to fight until our goal is reached so we aren't stopping just yet!
I will update everyone once phase two starts and I will most likely reopen Special Order (and add new ideas for it). If I still owe you those, don't worry! I quite busy with the School Festival (which was a total success! The
My art was stolen, now what?!You're casually browsing the internet when all of a sudden you see your art ripped on someone's myspace page, or elsewhere on the net, so what do you do?My art was stolen, now what?!9 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Well if you're an American citizen, you're protected under that infamous law known as the DMCA, or the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If you right click your ripped image and select properties, youll be able to see the address where the image is hosted. If its photobucket or some other easily accessible site then you have it easy and you know where to go to find a support email address. If your image is hosted on a dot com, youll need to do a WhoIs search and the name server that is listed will usually give away the company that is physically hosting the site. You can then get in contact with most sites through a webmaster or support email if you take a quick look around their site.
So now you know where your image is, what company is hosting it, and how to get a hold of them, then you scratch your head and ask
What's the Deal with Commissions? Something I've seen around Deviantart for awhile now, and I was curious as to what other people thought about it.What's the Deal with Commissions?1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It seems so often I see many artists complaining that they cannot get anyone to commission artwork from them. They go to great lengths to try and sell their skills, and some even adjust their prices to next to nothing or DA points.
When people don't bite, they ask me, or on the forums, "What am I doing wrong? I only want 100 points and no one buys them"
There are many artists such as myself who sell art/prints etc etc because we rely on it as a part of our income, but many of these people still live at home, or are in school. So, 100 DA points ( for example), which is $1.25 , is not really going to help anyone with bills or rent, or much of anything else.
And yet, there they are over and over, very upset and depressed that no one buys commissions from them.
When artists ask me how they can better market their work so people will buy it,

Important News on the MLP ComicIt looks to be pretty official, according to our editor, that the MLP comic has been pushed back two weeks to Nov 28 for street release date.Important News on the MLP Comic3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before anybody gets upset (like one jerk on Twitter did), keep in mind the scope of this production: This is not a fanmade comic as some seem to think it is: This is a fully licensed comic book from a major Comic publisher done in cooperation with Hasbro. It is also one of the most highly anticipated comics for the entire fall/winter schedule. As such, we'd rather do it well than do it fast.
The orders for this book have far exceeded what was first anticipated, so a little more padding in the schedule is going to help to ensure the product can meet the demand
I also want to remind everyone: I am NOT The distributor/publisher... I just draw it. You cannot purchase the book directly from me. Here's some ground I've covered a number of times, but I keep getting asked... so here we go:

Hungarian Comics - Between the two WarsBetween the two warsHungarian Comics - Between the two Wars3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First issue of Hári János, with a page of Lyman Young's Tim Tyler's Luck translated as Puskás Pista
The comic strip boom of the USA had a growing effect on Hungarian newspaper publishing until the late thirties. American comics flooded all kinds of newspapers, magazines. Hári János (1936-1937), a magazine for children is considered to be the first Hungarian comic book magazine, with comic strips on every page. Walt Disney strips, Secret Agent X-9, Little Nemo in Slumberland (Kis Némó Álomországban), George McManus strips and many others marked this period.
Not as many Hungarian comics were made in this period, while – for example – Yugoslavia, the southern neighbor, claims this period to be their Golden Age.
During this period the truncated Hungary was an ally of Germany. In 1937 the Minister of Justice began restricting the great amount of pulp literature and yellow press. I

As this is the first day of the year, I decided, that I will start a big, one year personal project: 2012- The year of Originality
I always love original characters, original stories, admire other artist's creativity and originality, and I always wanted to create some fanart about their stories. As I don't have too much time, near the university, and my other things, and the 2012 is here, I had an idea, that I will do a project. Project, that I can show, how many artists and original stories, characters are here, in DeviantArt. As my english is bad, sorry, but I will try to show and write why am I love them and their works, and maybe you will discover them too
I will upload sketch fanart about artists' original characters day by day in 2012 (If my personal life, or my computer/intertnet not encumber this x"D)
So... as my knowledge are well, it will be 366 sketch about 366 artist's work. xD And the last d

WingsGotta share with you guys... A new feathered wing movement .gif!Wings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm never satisfied with the feather wings I make, I am CONSTANTLY tweaking and trying to improve them, honestly it's become a bit of an obsession over the past year. I spend TOO much time doing it. But the fantastic suchacat has commissioned a winged doll and gave me the go-ahead to spend a bit of extra time working on another new mechanism. I've been experimenting over the past month and finally got to the stage of actually producing a pair of wings over the past couple of days and I am SO pleased with how they're turning out!
They are manually operated, my finger is hidden at the base. They are design to be moved by the first primary or by the last secondary to minimise feather distortion. They move easily and smoothly, the feathers put themselves in place and sit nicely... They can be folded and unfolded as well as moved up and down, forwards and backwards.
The extra excellent part is that they have the pot
