If you have already finished your entry, post it now! You have time up to midnight tonight, because tomorrow the jury (me, my sister and my father) will consult to choose the best ones and probably the results of the contest will be published.
Are you good at portraying people? Are you a fan of vampires? Do you like wolves or werewolves? Do you have a penchant for dragons and you like to draw? If you answered yes to at least one of these questions, you're in the contest for you!
Welcome to my first REAL contest on deviantart. (There was another, smaller, but that does not count ...).
This is a kind of statistical contest ... to the character that will be many times designed and therefore appreciated among my OC, surely will be granted to survive the final battle of the Way of Legends (or any battle).

Daily-Deviations Group Is Expanding ServicesWHAT DO WE DO?Daily-Deviations Group Is Expanding Services4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The short answer, we are a group that suggest art for the ever so wanted Daily Deviation Award and feature art of all kinds. How does it work? Well we're glad you asked! Well there's a few ways this process works out.
You can either submit a piece of your own work that you feel deserves a DD
You can suggest the work of another artist/writer which you deem DD worthy
The administration can suggest work they find DD worthy
Once a piece is submitted, our incredible staff will evaluate the work. Part of the evaluation includes, but is not limited to the following criteria:
Is it a finished piece?
How is the composition of the piece?
Is it original?
How does it compare to past DD awarded pieces in its genre (We base this on the DD-Catalogue found here DD-Catalogue or DD-Catalogue)
If the piece is accepted by an admin, at the least one admin will suggest the piece to a GM (well they will soon be changing th
Legends of the Solari needs art!So I have been working on this RPG (old school game like Dungeons and Dragon, not computer RPG) for about 7 1/2 years now. I need art for it before I can put the beta up online. I have decided to post the list of art needed here and descriptions of what I need and let the DA community draw them. I will, of course, pay any of the artists whose work I use. I have money set aside just for that purpose. You will only be paid for the art if your art is chosen for the beta, so please ask me any questions you have before you begin working on a picture. Any art also used for the final print will receive additional payment to be negotiated when the art is chosen for the beta. Being chosen for the beta does not guarantee that your art will be chosen for the final print.Legends of the Solari needs art!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Mega Man X Fanimation and Monty (to clarify)To anyone confused about Monty's involvement in this let me clarify.Mega Man X Fanimation and Monty (to clarify)5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Aside from being one of my best friends, huge inspiration and mentor for years...
-He encouraged me to go for it. To do a fan animation of my fav game series rather than use my original lame looking robot character who had no background story or fan base. I already wanted to do an X fan film, so it was clear. (X8 not being my fav of the series, but it was my only resource for models at the time)
-I was hesitant to go through with it out of fear that Capcom would sue me...but this is the guy who made Dead Fantasy...so went on anyway. It was a risk I had to take and thankfully Capcom played it cool.
-He tweaked my animation in the 1 clip from 1:34-36 to make the spin kick look more badass.
-Zero's black visor was his idea.
-He provided the KOS-MOS gatling guns and helped me make th

First & foremost, I want to thank all of you for the support that you have recently & even from the beginning have given me.
Lots of you can be credited to my inspiration, be it fans who drive me to create, critics who slow me down to assess & haters who act as the fuel to keep me going. I want to show you all I can strive to do my thing, supplement what I have with your feedback & prove I'll be successful in whatever it is I put my mind to. Big, BIG, thanks to all of you.
Which moves me to where I am right now. If you've watched me from the start, you know I dumped everything I had into my DA account from the jump. Any drawing, sketch, whatever it was, I was posting 30+ deviations a month. It was an exciting time for me, being the first time I ever exhibited my work on the virtual world's stage. I had always been told by relatives & peers that I had t

She looked down at her plate, an empty glare fixated on her slowly cooling potatoes. The dinner could have been going better.
August, 2010, the last weekend before overtime started on our major AAA project. I was transferred from the previous rhythm/music video game onto the major blockbuster shooter just a month prior to their major crunch period. We were literally jumping from our last crunch into a new one with hardly any break. Though the timing made things a bit hectic, I soon learned it certainly was convenient.
The news had already traveled the pipeline. I didn't just depart from that last company; I was chased by an exploding fireball out the front door, diving for safety.

:iconbulletproofturtleman: sent me the following note:
"Hey GBK, er-hem Mr. Hoffmann, I would like to request a special tribute. In light of the passing of the recent animator Monty Oum, who has created amazing mash-ups like Dead Fantasy, Red vs Blue, and Haloid, perhaps Game-Art-HQ could put together a special tribute in memory of all the works he's done?
It seems pretty forward of me to ask, and I understand if you do not have the time considering the many other tributes you are already putting together, but I ask that you consider it, as it would be a great way for the creative and gaming community to celebrate the remembrance of one of the great creative minds and his legacy.
I thank you for taking the time to read this, and please do notify me if you do conside
Tutorial Tuesday: Commissioning Do and Don'tSo I'm back at it! The incredible amount of re-blogs and likes I've received the last few weeks on my tutorials have been overwhelming so I've returned with new tutorials!Tutorial Tuesday: Commissioning Do and Don't2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have a list here of at least a dozen different things I want to teach all of you, (and I'm sure that list is going to grow.) But I thought today we'll ease into it with some of the dos and don'ts when getting a private commission from your favorite artist.
Now I should start off by saying that these are based off my own experiences. Every artist is different and they have policies, preferences, and procedures they prefer. So be sure to ask them how they do things so that everything goes smoothly. In my experience though, following these guidelines will significantly increase the chances that the artwork you commission will come out amazing. So here we go!
DO: Tell the artist what you want.
This is simple but the most important.
Don't ever tell me this! (or to any other artist.)I saw something like this pass me by on Facebook, with just the first 10 points.Don't ever tell me this! (or to any other artist.)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Together with some others we could name a lot more.
How about you? anything like this ever happened to you?
Things you shouldn't say to an artist.
1 Can you do the artwork for this job for free? It will be a good promotional piece for you. Get you some word to mouth advertising.
2 Mom Look! That painting is just like that picture you downloaded from the internet and got framed for the living room.
3 Wow. You charge THAT much? You make it look so easy.
4 If you don't make it so detailed... Just scribble something down... Can I get it cheaper?
5 If you use that piece you already got and change it a little, can I get it cheaper? You already have done most of it.
6 I can use a Photoshop filter to do that exact same thing.
7 You are lucky... you don't have to work, you just have to sit and paint all day.
Had the Urge...…to write this because I'm getting repeated questions that are pretty much along the same lines and rather than direct each one to my FAQ, I have a different way to answer the question, which is basically:Had the Urge...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Why am I not getting anywhere in my art? What can I do to get better? No one is liking my work, how can I get more people to like my work so they can pay me?"
The real question you should be asking yourselves is:
"Why am I drawing?"
I mean, I take a look all the time at people who may not be skilled or whatever, and I'm sure they don't feel the best about their work (or they may), but they always have something to say that made them feel good while drawing it. Saw a sunset beach picture earlier that someone drew/painted and of course, it's not professional-looking at all. What ringed to me was the fact that in their comments, they said they "enjoyed it and was a relaxing piece". Not complaining about how the sand looks too crappy or the colors in the s

Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

Hello my wonderful art friends off of deviantART.
I really need your support! Please read this if you have a moment, it would mean so much to me.
I need artists/writers on deviantART that are interested in promoting this:
Basically what I want for later is a journal post advertising when I open up a list of children's names/orphanages that need an artist to sign up for the program. It works similar to a pen pal program. Basically, if you like to draw (sketching is fine), write, or simply create you can be paired up with a child from an orphanage or another program that lacks the chance to visit art museums or doesn't have access to online art galleries. What do you have to do? Send them a little something to motivate them in their lives or to make them smile. It's like getting a letter in the mail versus another bill. It's showing them they have support out there even if they may not have a mother or father or even both. It's about en

Everyone has Drawbacks or disadvantages due to different circumstances in our lives, but it´s on us to change our view about them, or better said: turning them into assets.
The image shows an explanatory example of this topic, it is told that Lady Gaga was a roadie for Iron Maiden, once upon a time. Things that would make everyone else look like a complete dork somehow complimenting her appearance.
This post should be a motivator to carry on with whatever you do. If you have two healthy hands, a rough vision, some kind of talent, this post should help you push the envelope by unleashing potential that might hold you back now.

enjoy the reading.
One name you might not know, which should be on that list, is Takashi Nishiyama, who designed the original Street Fighter at Capcom before leaving to run SNK's development division, putting games like Fatal Fury, King of Fighters and Samurai Shodown under his belt. In 2000, he founded the company that would become Dimps
1UP: Yeah, it's pretty well-known in the U.S. But you're probably best known -- at least based on your time at Capcom -- for the original Street Fighter. How did that come about?
TN: When I was still at Irem, I made a game called Spartan X; I think it was called Kung-Fu Master overseas. Basically, I was the producer on that game and Capcom headhunted me. Then after I moved over, I was able to improve on what I

FOR ANYONE WHO'S READING THIS A BIT LATE
This all happened about five to six months ago. Obsessing about this would be just silly, on either side. If you managed to find your way here by now and would still like to know what happened, I'll give you a quick summary.
There USED to be a BHB journal explaining everything that happened , but DA recently banned a bunch of groups for whatever fucking reason. Anyways, it turned out that Rai (Nincianda) was Kas all along and wasn't actually 13 and had been banned from DA I believe at least 10 times already? Anyways, she was caught and flipped the fuck out. Aisha was caught tracing and left DA forever, but she still uses tumblr.
Nincianda ended up being someone who drew badly but found out people thought it was cute for a 12/13 year old. She also ran around telling people crazy stories about how she was abused and other shit, but when
