Contest Info UPDATEDThe theme for this contest is "Demons and Angels"Contest Info UPDATED3 years ago in Personal More Like This
How you Interpret the theme is up to you, but It must be painfully obvious that the entry is of or about the topic.

Limit of one Entry per Deviant, If I catch anyone using multiple accounts you will be disqualified.

On the Subject of BasesFellow People of Deviantart,On the Subject of Bases4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I am here today to talk to you about Bases and Dolling.
I am not asking you to do it, or even to like it, but just to put out a standpoint that is sorely missing from this ongoing row over what a Base really is.
You may think a base is a large traced piece from anime with no skill and that the people who draw on top of them are lazy artists who just don't want to learn how to draw. Some bases are traced, but not every base.
Dolling is a hobby, something that is done for fun, and not every doller out there wants to be able to draw like a whiz kid. A lot of people hold down jobs, or full time education and just want a little fun. And so they are able to use a base that they like and draw some clothes and hair onto it, often very skillfully.

Improved DMCA Reporting SystemImproved DMCA Reporting System3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Hello, deviants! In an effort to keep the community informed and to provide the best possible experience for our members, we wanted to inform you of changes to our reporting system.
DeviantART is dedicated to protecting our artists, and in an effort to be able to more quickly handle complaints by deviants who have had their rights infringed on, we have changed the way we receive complaints from the artist or the copyright holder.
In the past, we took reports by the copyright holder in two different ways: An informal report via the Report Violation tool and a formal complaint via contacting the Help Desk. While both of these methods were effective, they presented many setbacks.
The informal report did not gather all the necessary information for a formal copyright complaint and was prone to misuse by well-meaning deviants who would attempt to report images they did not own the copyright to

Art.Lately I've been seeing a great many attitudes in the art community that, as an artist, concern me greatly. On one end, you have people who blatantly steal art and trace over it, with no concern for the original artist, to people who think using any form of reference to draw from is stealing on the other. In the middle you have people who get angry at me they ask me how to draw something, the answer is "practice". Below are exaggerated examples of attitudes I encounter frequently, as well as my thoughts on them.Art.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Criteria. That word is used a lot here at digital-artists, so let's talk about it.
The ever mysterious Criteria in our group. The bane to those of who have tried to submit, yet only left with a decline message signed "Criteria". As mysterious as the Whitechapel note signed "From Hell"
Ever present yet unobtainable, like some secret code written of the Illuminati.
Not quite... but a few have blown this criteria up to mythical urban legend proportions, and we need to deflate it a bit.
We have had a lot of questions about this ever elusive and undefinable "Criteria" and for good reason, we never told anyone what it was. We never gave anyone a proper explanation of it in regards to the group submissions. It

Please, read ALL the rules, and the text
I'm holding a pretty basic contest, based around my OC, Tomino.
You may choose to do either design, which ever you like better ^_^
Tomino is an average teenage girl, with slight self esteem issues. However, one day, she finds her skin becoming slightly itchy. Days go by, and soon, the skin goes from itchy, to red patches, to blisters, to actually rotting and falling off! She dwells into a paranoid state, concerned that no one would like her due to the lack of skin in various places. At night, she began roaming streets, finding the occasionally intoxicated person and taking advantage of their incapability, actually skins them, and sews their skin into place where hers is missing. This becomes a daily routine, and eventually, she "falls" into a place that isn't there, where someone pulls her head, forcing her neck to stretch. She manages to ge
