Cherry Biscuit CakeThis cake is rather easy to make and doesn't need much experience.Cherry Biscuit Cake3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But keep in mind when I am talking of cup I mean a real cup and not an unit for measurement!
Better start with a smaller cup if you are not sure how much dough you will get at the end.
It needs to fit into the baking sheet, otherwise it could end with a mess ;)
Mix the eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder and oil until you get a smooth dough. Blend the soda or sparkling water completely afterwards.
Add the dough to a fatted baking sheet and let it bake for about 25min at 170°C (air circulation enabled) until it gets a light tanning.
Bring the sour cherries with the juice of two jars to the boil. Keep the juice of the third jar for later.
Mix the custard powder with a bit of the cherry juice(until it is all liquid and there are no lumps left). Optionally you can add a bit of sugar as well. I never do though.
Once the cherries boil add the custard powder and let it all thicken.

Fella\'s Big CSS GuideWelcome to fella's epic CSS reference blog! I rounded up some of dA's favourite, and most helpful, CSS-ers and picked their brains to bring you a comprehensive reference which includes great tips, tutorials, groups and resources to help you make the most of your dA experience using Cascading Style Sheets to prettify your journals, galleries, groups and userpages.Fella\'s Big CSS Guide4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Big thanks to VSConcepts, SaTaNiA, ginkgografix and TwiggyTeeluck for their help in making this blog!
Starting from the absolute basics, how would you describe what CSS is and what it can be used for on deviantART?
VSConcepts says, Well, CSS Stands for Cascading Style Sheet. CSS essentially takes existing HTML and dresses it up. CSS controls how the basic HTML can be displayed to the viewer, and thus enhances the experience on the web. On deviantART, we apply CSS to our personal journals, our group blogs, and news articles, and even use it in some custom widgets.
Good Guys (Males Only) CollabThe collab is now COMPLETE!:Good Guys (Males Only) Collab2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For this collab, we will be drawing all the Disney good guys (males) we can!
If this collab goes well, we'll do a Disney girls one, too.
Any good guy can only be in the collab once. In other words, if someone has already taken him, then you can't sign up for him.
When we're done, Zimeta will put together all the individual guys onto one big mural, much like our previous villains collaboration:
Traditional or digital mediums are fine.
Any pose is fine as long as it's not vulgar. Anything from jumping to sitting is just perfect.
Do not do your own version of a character. You MUST use the Disney design. You're allowed to draw them in your own style, though. In fact, we encourage you to use your own style over doing a carbon copy of a character.
We are not doing different versions of the same character. Fo

Making Art on Commission: Tips for ArtistsPretty much all artists are presented with offers to produce works of art on commission at points in their careers. Unfortunately, many have had what looked to be a golden opportunities turn into unmitigated nightmares. The following tips and pointers on expect when commissioned to do an artwork and how to approach commissions in general will not only help you avoid problems, but will help you identify situations when the best approach is to just say no.Making Art on Commission: Tips for Artists4 years ago in Personal More Like This
To begin with, working on commission, creating a work of art on spec from scratch for someone other than yourself, is totally different than selling a finished piece at a show, at a gallery, or out of your studio. Selling a completed work of art is an event; producing a work of art on commission for another party is a relationship. Never confuse the two.
From your end, the key to successfully working on commission is your ability to be flexible and communicate with whomever hires you. A commission relationship only succeeds when you re

Poetry Basics: EmotionsEmotions in poetryPoetry Basics: Emotions2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Writing, at its very base, is communication. We write to communicate — with someone else, with ourselves — when we write, we arrange words in a manner that is intended to be read. This is very important because, no matter what or how you write, this one basic fact never changes. If you get stuck at any point, you can come back to this sturdy foundation. I am writing to communicate; what do I want to communicate?
Often, the answer is emotions: how you feel, or how you want your reader to feel. As Gregory Corso wrote, "You must feel! It's beautiful to feel!"
We all feel, but how we express our feels is a matter of perspective. If we are too flippant with our choice of words, our readers will think we are shallow. If we are too brooding and deliberate, our readers may find us incomprehensible. Finding a balance takes work and dedication.
But that work and dedication is what distinguishes
PE: Poetry Basics Wrap UpAs projecteducate 's Poetry Basics weeks comes to a close, hopefully we're all a little more knowledgeable about the simple and complicated art of creating wonderful poetry. It's been an awesome journey with just as awesome advice along the way. Everything from terminology to proper ways to pull ideas of your brain and put them on paper were covered. Simple is better but often time quite hard to accomplish with the message you're trying to get across. Well, at least for those of us not well versed in the poetry lingo, styles or forms.PE: Poetry Basics Wrap Up2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This

Submitting traditional artworksWhat to keep in mind when submitting traditional artworksSubmitting traditional artworks1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Traditional Art Week continues! Today, we'll discuss some things to consider when submitting your traditional artworks into DeviantArt.
Most of them are genuine recommendations, but taking them seriously might increase your over-all DA experience for good
1. Image size
One of the most common presentation mistakes is submitting a very small image of your work. Why is this an issue, I'm not entirely sure, perhaps it's the fear of art theft that makes your gallery consist of 300 x 300 pix large pictures, but you're not going to get new watchers nor people to favorite your work this way - viewers want to enjoy the detail and atmosphere of the piece, they will move on one second after they open the page. For optimal results, the larger side of your deviation should be about 800-900 pix. Some artists submit very large files of their work
PE: Inner ArtistTo find your inner artist you have to find your way first. Get inspired by other Artists and have fun!PE: Inner Artist2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Before I tell you how to find your inner artist, I want to speak a little bit about inspiration. We all need inspiration to let out our inner artist. An Art block won´t help us at all.
So, what is inspiration? Who gives us inspiration? Inspiration is hard to describe. We all have different views about it. Others see inspiration in music and others look up to amazing artists like Leonardo da Vinci (Italian pronunciation: [leoˈnardo da ˈvintʃi] * April 15, 1452 - † May 2, 1519).
Tips how to get inspired: Turn your music on, go out to see the nature, have fun with friends, look up to other artists (But do not copy their ideas) or stories.
But that's only my view, I asked 2 artists about their view, 'What is inspiration for them'.
Poetic Terms and TechniquesPoetic terms and techniquesPoetic Terms and Techniques2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
This article aims to give you a brief introduction to some poetic terms with which you can bemuse your friends and nonplus your enemies. Try and sling some of these terms into a casual conversation and watch the ensuing confusion.
If you don't want to confuse people, you could use these terms to discuss poetry like a badass
while smoking unfiltered cigarettes in a French cafe, when critiquing, or to give your own poetry a bit of a vajazzle.
These terms are arranged vaguely into alphabetical order for your convenience. Some of them will be covered in more detail in other articles throughout the week.
Alliteration (see also Sibilance)
Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds, often used for a specific effect in poetry.

Little thing called TalentLittle thing called TalentLittle thing called Talent1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
"My name is Marc, my emotional life is sensitive and my purse is empty, but they say I have talent."
In general, talent means the skill that someone has quite naturally to do something that is hard, a high degree of ability that a person was born with. It's hard to argue that some people indeed have more of an inherited talent for arts than others. They are able to get to a certain level rather quickly and get a lot of praise along the way. However, relying on talent will only last for so long, there's a point to be reached when nothing but hard work gets you through.
"Talent is so loaded a word, so full to the brim with meanings, that an artist might be wise
