edit the third; also, guys;; it becomes blatantly obvious some of you aren't telling the truth because people are also signing from other sites, and there aren't enough signatures with the number of comments on this journal;; it would really suck to give the points to a dishonest person, and it really doesn't take that long to sign!!

MPG Project 2013! Last recipient chosenHi there, i'm The-Average-Alex and i am writing this journal to inform all of you guys of a project which i will be starting in 2013.MPG Project 2013! Last recipient chosen3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is the MPG Project?
The MPG project stands for "Monthly premium give-away project".
On the 15th of every month in 2013 i will be giving away a 3 month premium membership to one lucky deviant here on deviantArt.
I will only be choosing people who have registered to be part of the MPG project
Premium memberships that i give away as part of the MPG project do not count towards my 2013 prize budget so do not worry i will still be hosting competitions & other give-aways throughout the year.
How can i participate/register?
It's extremely easy, all you have to do is leave a comment and this journal.
Please remember to this journal as this it will add you to a list which i will be picking from.
What's the catch?
There is none -.-"
Y U NO ACCEPT MY KINDNESS!!!???

An Introduction To Fine MetalworkingCommunity WeekAn Introduction To Fine Metalworking1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Co-written by melzika!
Fine metalworking is most often considered a medium for jewelry making, although it can be used for other works as well. Many artists have made wall pieces, sculptures, reliquaries, vessels, and other less traditional works with metals. Fine metal is a very versatile and exciting medium that challenges the artist to create beautiful works of art from something that, at first glance, might seem very hard, rigid and unforgiving. Fortunately crafters have been working with metals throughout history, and contemporary artists can still rely on the techniques of those pioneers to see metals in a new light - as soft, malleable and functional.
This article will introduce you to some of these basic metalworking techniques. This is in no way meant as a tutorial, and reading this article won’t qualify you to begin working immediately in metals. There are a lot of safety precautions involved in working wit

What is a "plz" account?
A "plz" account is a deviantART account where the avatar is an emote that you can use in your journals, comments, etc.
How do you use them?
To use them, write :icon(thenameoftheaccount):
An example is :iconsupertighthugplz: which is written as :icon supertighthug plz: (minus the spaces)
Some popular accounts are:
To get the account name, roll your mouse over the image and copy the text you see beginning with an :icon and ending in a :.

Free Stock and Resources outside dAPlease fave if you find this journal usefulFree Stock and Resources outside dA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I updated and added new stuff on: March 9th 2014
before I started doing my own art, I was an avid incredimail email- stationary creator.
(All legal always with freeware, according to terms, with written permission etc)
For that reason I have collected a massive bunch of pages with stockphotos (free for profit reasons)
free & shareware fonts, plugin pages and so on.
I thought that it might be as useful for creating art for some of you.
The quality and resolution of the images varies so check yourself
I met several people who don't know much free stock outside dA..
although dA holds fantastic stock photographers and artists too! one can never have enough choice

Don't deny that you traced and say that you "referenced" it instead.
Don't advocate the above actions by making a tutorial out of it.
Especially if you are a high-profile artist who is looked up to by a large number of aspiring artists.

Where my materials come from...I have gotten many questions about this....so I thought I would clear it up a bitWhere my materials come from...8 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in a very small village in Northern Alaska. I also grew up in even a smaller village. The thing is, we have no roads. So all of the food for the stores come through airplane. As a consequence, food is very very expensive, because we are also paying for it to be shipped by air.
Jobs are scarce here. And more than 75% of them are taken by people who are not from here and/or don't even live here. So money is rare.
We are also part of a movement to keep our culture alive. In this day and and age filled with computers, airplanes, drugs, and other impending situations including the decimation of our numbers....it is a struggle to hold onto what little there is left. And even harder because the younger generations do not hold it dear.
All of my natural materials come from the animals we harvest for food, or from ani

Hello and welcome back! Today I will continue on the journey during a near death experience (NDE)!
Warning - do not try to emulate this experience at home!!
In the first instalment, I was in that state of being dropped at high speed, down and down, and even feeling a force behind me that seemed to accelerate the process. Far, far beneath me I thought I could see something that seemed very dark and foreboding; it didn't give me a good feeling - in fact, I wished with all of my "being" that I would miss it entirely. I was getting closer and closer...
Then, just as I thought I was about to enter The Deep, the scene again changed, and instead of continuing downwards, I found myself being propelled forwards on a Conveyor...
