HEY GUISE, I HERD YOU LIEK POINTS? CONTEST!!AND PRETTY POSTCARDS, PAINTED PICTURES AND PANDAS!!HEY GUISE, I HERD YOU LIEK POINTS? CONTEST!!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
(Actually, no real pandas, but it fit with my fabulous alliteration..)
So, what you need to do: Draw any of my original characters! Pretty easy, right? There's no theme (unless you want one ), so you're pretty free- as long as you keep the character recognisable, haha. When you're done, you can post a link here or Note me, whatever. ^_^
You can draw as few or many of my OCs as you like, and you're welcome to draw them with your own
You can re-design their clothes and hair if you feel the need.
It must be new, original work. No bases. (That's kind of my only definite rule.)
Just visual stuff, puriisu, no lit this time! D:
You may enter as many pictures as you like, but quality over quantity! I'd prefer one awesome, colourful pic than two quick sketches
Its cool to see them interacting, bein
Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, surpassed only by Morrowind, and I've been planning for a long time to put together a feature with original artwork. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since almost all Oblivion-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
Oblivion is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2006. The central plot revolves around the efforts to thwart the fanatical cult Mythic Dawn that plans to open the gates to the demonic realm of Oblivion. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are quest lines for several guilds, and many side missions. Despite being less diversified and immersive than Morrowind, the incredible amount of quality third-party add-ons add a lot of scope and replay value to the game.

Welcome to the second 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 second edition is with Anoya, our Animals, Plants, and Nature Photography CV, we hope you'll enjoy the read!
1. Why did you choose to become a CV? Has the experience been a positive one?
This is actually my second term, I was a CV 18 months before in 2010/2011 as well, so it's definitely been a positive one. Or two actually, haha. Why I chose to become a CV? I absolutely love APN photography and I also absolutely love dA and the APN community. In 2010 I read that they were looking for an APN CV (Or GM, Gallery Moderator, what it was called back then) and I read through the rules and what you had to do exactly and I felt like I was up f
DDs: To select or not to selectHey wazaaaaaap!DDs: To select or not to select2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In my last journal I talked about my stance on Daily Deviations. In this occasion I'll tell you some of the reasons that make me choose some artworks, and the reasons that make me not choose others. Hopefully it will be interesting for some, useful for others or simply a good reading if you're really boring.
What makes me choose a deviation to be featured?
Such a simple question with such an indefinite answer, and I apologize in advance for giving such a vague response but I'll put it simple: Sometimes not even I know!
There's not a secret formula I have to determine if a piece is going to be featured or not, sometimes I really have a hard time making a decision and it really is a case-by-case situation. The deviation needs to STAND OUT, be different, have that "wow" factor. Unfortunately this is very difficult to explain. However ther

A Tribute to Hans Ruedi GigerA Tribute to Hans Ruedi Giger10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.
In 1979, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon craft

JUUHANNA'S ART-RAFFLE! [WINNERS]Hello everybody, and welcome to my art-raffle journal!JUUHANNA'S ART-RAFFLE! [WINNERS]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been thinking of different kinds of community-activities I could create or participate in, and this seems like it could be fun n easy.
In order to participate in the raffle, you have to do two things:
1. Add this journal to your favorites (so that you will have a number).
2. Leave a comment with a link to the character (or few alternative charas for me to choose from) you'd like me to draw if you're a lucky winner!
So fav+comment, and you're in!
The way it works is as follows:
Once the contest ends, I will use random number generator to get a number, and the person who has that number in the faves list will be the winner!
I will be making a colored portrait (shoulders up) for the winner!
As a bonus I will also generate a runner-up number, and the runner-up will get a port

1. Why did you choose to become a CV? Do you have any advice for members who'd like to become one?
It was like 'hey I'm pretty plugged into the community, I should do the thing.' (Okay, that makes me sound responsible. The truth is that I'd had a few beers, and namenotrequired tricked me with his fancy words.)
But, anyway, I don't think being a CV should be anyone's end goal on this site. It should be more like you're already almost at that point. The only stuff gallery CVs really

A half-elf warrior (Azzedar) and a drow rogue (Lunareth) become inseparable mate by a "curse" of talisman. Will they be able to bring the curse end or do they need to grow up to get their normal life back? It's a story with full of adventure, action and eroticism. &
Perfect commission processI commissioned a lot of artists (more than 50) and some of them didn't follow a commission process and only sent the final image after asking for an upfront payment.Perfect commission process1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I won't commission this kind of artists in the future, because I have no guaranty that the artist will deliver a drawing corresponding to client wishes and I had bad experiences in some cases.
Below, I'll use client for the commissioner and artist for the commissioned artist.
For me, the perfect commission process steps should be :
client sends a note or an email to an artist with all details and references about commission
artist should reply quickly (1 or 2 days after received the message, if he's available), accept or refuse commission, and give a price for the commission
client should reply if the price is fine for him (but he shouldn't bargain)
artist should give an estimated delay before starting to work, if he has a waiting list, put the commission in it
once artist is ready

Take your art to higher lever in 4 simple steps!
For people who are serious about drawing and want to make career in art! And for me to stop getting questions on how to practice, or how do you get better
Are you stuck and don't know how to carry on making great art?
You just want to draw better?
If an answer to any of these questions is 'yes' then you might find this interesting...
Since the only thing I ever acknowledged myself good at is getting better I decided to share a couple of tricks.
I truly believe it works in every single case.
It's true. You can get out now or shut up and listen and get better.
(oh and do I need to mention that you need to draw a lot to get better?
I didn't draw a lot and still got better because I followed the steps listed below. But yeah, may not work without drawing a lot...)
Step 1. Honesty.
Be aware of your own limitations. They're usually bigger than you really think, despite what people say. I won't be talking about fals

Your goal for this contest is to create a piece of art, with a specific story in mind. It can be your story, the story of someone you know, it can be fictional, it can be short, it can be sad, it can be ha
