I'm ^alicexz now! + DD GuidelinesHi everyone! As of today I've been made one of the new Community Volunteers by Moonbeam13 and I'll be looking after the Digital Art gallery, along with Negatic! Woo! Very exciting and I am definitely going to have a great time this year. My job will be to do some general moderating around the community; organizing deviations and miscategorizations, posting news and features and offering general support! Hopefully I can even get some contests going in the future! I'll be painting and posting art and carrying on in all my usual deviant things, so that won't change - I'll just be busier!I'm ^alicexz now! + DD Guidelines4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Oh, and of course I can also now feature Daily Deviations, so suggest away! I've typed up some rules which I'll be putting in my profile shortly, but here's a copy for this journal, please read it though!

Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de
SKIPPING WITH HAPPINESStoday has been the best day.SKIPPING WITH HAPPINESS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
i went to my Independent Research: Drawing class, which i signed up for late. so i didn't know quite what to expect, having not been to class yet. the only thing my professor told me to bring to class was a drawing i'd worked on or completed lately...
do you realize how vague that is? my mind went into overdrive. should i bring a large one that was more conceptual? should i grab a still-life? a comic? i was losing it. but then my dad, who is good friend with my professor, having been a grad student under his teaching, tells me to show my professor what i LIKE to do.
thus, i take the Hunger Games drawing i've been coloring, and a completed Blaire design.
i was so embarrassed when i showed him my cartoons, that i started rambling about how i'd like to go into animation, and he stops me. he asks me what materials i need to do that. i kinda freeze, cause i wasn't anticipating that at all. but then i spit out that i hadn't thought about anything spec

Just a little while ago, we posted the latest Sta.sh updates and asked you for more feedback. Now, in this update, you'll find all the feedback from those 500+ comments gathered into the Known Issues section below, just after the Change Log, which will tell you about some brand new features launching today, as well as all the bugs fixed since the last update.
The last update was all about Sta.sh, and there are some pretty big Sta.sh announcements this time too, but this update features any changes that have been made to deviantART, Profiles, Messages, Sta.sh, everything!
Many have asked for the ability to share a whole stack of Sta.sh files, as well as just one at a time. Well now you can! In any stack on your Sta

50,000 PAGEVIEWS!!! thank you allWell, I am not an illustrator. I am a writer and that doesn't always make it easy to promote my creative work online or on deviantart. Still, thanks to many talented illustrators and painters that understood my concepts and visions, we have collaborated to create an awesome gallery. I really should have left all the work up while i was on hiatus but oh well. it is back up now and thanks to the community, I just hit a milestone! 50,000 page views!50,000 PAGEVIEWS!!! thank you all6 months ago in Personal More Like This
feels great and although i didn't hit 1000 watchers yet, i hope to this year... somehow.
I can't put up an illustrative work to mark the occasion but I can pay it forward a bit... by showcasing my favourite work of some of my watchers. so here is the showcase gallery
this is just a selection from my watchers. hopefully i can do a round 2 some time. thanks again everyone for the pageviews, watches and favs!

Art Trade?Hey guys, I was thinking about art trades, well in fact I've been thinking about them for quite a long time cxArt Trade?7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm always really shy to ask about them, but I'd really love to do some
I want to draw and get some pretty art too hehe, as I don't have money for commission people, so this is a good chance.
I have in mind a gift for The-Flight-Factor, first because she has amazing characters ;u; and second because I admire her and she's a very nice artist. Abbey if you'd like to do an art trade I'll be very happy, but if not I still want to draw something for you as I told you sometimes while watching you streaming c;
Though I'd love to do art trades with a lot of equine artists, I wouldn't mind doing canine or feline characters, so I'll push myself into getting better at them.
So guys, please comment below and don't hesitate to ask
I might be a bit slow with drawing because with move, new house and stuff I'm busy, but I do always keep my promises :3

It is exciting and an honor to host such magnificent galleries! Magnificent because of the endless talent on DA. You people are brilliantly talented and it's an inspiration to see so much passion. It's even more amazing that so many of you are along for the ride! From the beginning there were amazing pieces of work being submitted and it has never let up. If you are as enthralled with art as we are then you're in the right place! We have a bit of everything, showcasing the beauty of the female spirit, mind, and body. From digital fantasy to artistic nude photography we collect and show off everything we love. We hope you love it too
Enjoy and thank you all for the amazing love and support.

I found :iconKiraMizuno:'s journal idea pretty cool to give some presents ideas. I wrote you the steps and my list. Send me yours!
Make a post in your dA journal (the manual INCLUDED - I wont grant any wishes, if I see no manual). The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
If you wish for real-life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals)

PE: Textured brushesThis article is an introduction to textured brushes in digital art painting. I'll cover making your own brushes as well as the use of textured brushes. You'll also find some great art and brush sets at the end of this article. This is my first time writing for projecteducate, so I hope you'll find this helpful!PE: Textured brushes2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Textured brush vs. texture
First of all, what is a textured brush? And why should you bother with it when you can just slap a nice texture over your painting to make it look more interesting?
Alright, let's start at the beginning. "Textured brush" is a brush created out of a texture, so basically a texture in brush-form. Whether it's made with help of a pre-existing image (see texture above) or some wild scribbling on your tablet (like the example brush above) doesn't matter. Texture + select + define brush = texture
