What we can do? Black March"Another protest is building steam. This time, its a boycott aimed directly at big media, called Black March. For the entire month of March, consumers are encouraged to not buy any media. Personally, I like the idea of this even better than the web blackout, as effective as it was. Sony, Disney, Fox, Paramount and the WB seem to think they are invulnerable because we, as consumers, have grown so dependent on them for our entertainment. Hopefully, a good participation level will show them exactly how wrong they are.What we can do? Black March1 year ago in Happenings More Like This

Identify, avoid, and deal with various specimens of troll!
written by `miontre for #projecteducate's Community Week
Trolls are everywhere on deviantART. In the forums, telling you that your site suggestion sucks. In your gallery, saying that you're doing it wrong. In your journal, asking you if ur mad. And of course there are numerous lone trolls roaming around, looking for n00bs (such as yourself) to prey on. Naww, I'm just kidding! You're not a noob.
Trolls live to make you upset. They want to insult your ideas, artworks, interests, and so forth; because they love provoking people and getting a reaction out of them. It's important that you know how to identify, avoid, and deal with the many types of troll which roam and predate deviantART.
There are a few different types of trolls, and it's important that you can identify and distinguish between them so that you know what you'r

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
Have a wonderful time with your loved ones and I hope Santa left something special for you under the Christmas tree
There is a special dA offer that expires on 26th December. If you give one premium membership as a gift, dA gifts a premium membership of the same value to you.
So I decided to make one of my watchers happy, and they can make their friend happy too.
I decided to give one lucky deviant a 3 month premium membership in the points equivalent.
I won't give you a premium membership directly, 'cos that would mean I would get one from dA myself.
I will give you 636 points (which is a 3 month premium membership value) and when you get it, you can buy your special friend a 3 month premium membership and you will get the same gift from deviantart.
So, that means two premium memberships, for you and your friend (:
But be careful, the offer expires on the 26th o

Arvalis-2012 by `arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

I get it's like three days later than the ending date but um they took away the computer and I had to throw a kid off a computer just to get here. The judging may or may not take a while, since there are a few other judges (a lot of my friends entered and I want to make really sure the judging is fair), which I have to contact and get opinions from despite not being able to directly contact them right now (plus I have to judge them myself as well and I don''t have a computer for the next two days at least).

So I have been thinking of doing a few articles apart from feature articles to link some useful resources for artists and this is the first one of these. While this is a mini one, it's helped me a lot on several occassions.
Sometimes it gets confusing to decide which colours to choose. "'Should I go with a turquoise and a gold for the face? What about the room? I was going for a chic cool modern palette which is minimalistic!" Surely, a lot of us have gone through those decisive moments. Below are some colour scheme tools that would help you with your colour scheme choices. Click the titles or the links in asterisk to go to the following sites.
