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.
I will be accepting drawn pieces, either Digital or Traditional ONLY. This means, no literature, or Photography. I will NOT ACCEPT Bases, fan art or stolen art. This must be TOTALLY ORIGINAL. Im sorry if that is inconvenient.
Limit of one Entry per Deviant, If I catch anyone using multiple accounts you will be disqualified.
Your entry must contain either an Angel/Demon or both. It can either be in full color or line art, but no sketches please. This makes it so it is your best work, not just something you doodled in class or whatever. This is really important and I cannot stress enough that I want to see YOUR BEST! Take time on this if you are entering. No matter what skill level you are you still have a chance to win.
This entry MUST be made for this contest, and for this co
On the Subject of BasesFellow People of Deviantart,On the Subject of Bases3 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

Draw my OC contest ^_^Hi guys~! I've decided to hold a simple little contest ^_^Draw my OC contest ^_^2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

Really irritated by part of the community here :/Okay, it's been few years since I was ranting on DA but the time has come. Everyone has a pet peeve and mine is being told that "this looks like". I very often state that I use no refs for the faces and if I did, and certainly if it was somebody famous (as it would be very obvious, right?), I would write it in the comment. But no. Still many people assume it just has to be a portrait of someone, often someone I'm not even familiar with, just because this is their first impression. And yes, I get it they (mostly) don't mean anything bad. But to me, and you can call it overreacting, it feels like I'm being accused of art theft every single time it happens. Even if I know this is ridiculous (like when people accuse me of stealing my own art from myself, not checking their sources beforehand and, believe me, it happens quite often).Really irritated by part of the community here :/4 years ago in Personal More Like This

It needs an icon, please would everyone contribute something, put it in the group, then send a note to :icon6-sauskeatan-9:
Homophobic behaviour is racism. If you walked up to a coloured man or woman and called them a nigger, you would most probably be arrested, therefore, why is it ok for someone to walk up to a gay man or woman and say things like 'fag' 'lesbo' 'scum' or, the one that has sparked this problem, 'retard'!

Thank you! ... and: Patreon!It's been two months off dA, but I've been very, very happy to see so many of you connect with me on Facebook, Tumblr, or my blog. Thank you so, so much for your ongoing support and digital companionship over the years.Thank you! ... and: Patreon!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Several of you asked whether I had a Patreon that you could use to support me, and connect with me there as well. I've spent the last few weeks (well, on and off) putting together a Patreon account - and am now happy to share it here!
Patreon is a site where you can support artists you like creating stuff that you love. It works a little like an ongoing Kickstarter - the pledges start much lower, and the rewards (prints, tutorials, original art, commissions...) are ongoing, too.
It's a dream of mine to be able to work as an artist full-time. Patreon gives me the chance to try if it can work. If you can imagine supporting me - starting as low as 1$ per month - head over and see what's in store for you in return!
This is still v
