*** Note: you need a premium membership for this stuff to work! ***
These are widgets on your profile that you can put anything you want in. When you click on [Edit Page] you can choose the "Custom" option. If you have general widgets like "ID", "Fave Deviation", "Journal" etc. they do limit where you can put custom boxes, so I just got rid of them all and use primarily Custom widgets for my profile OvO)/
1. Custom background picture!!!
This is where you get to show off your personality a bit- it can be really fun trying out different background colours and pictures. There are many cute ones available on deviantArt, just search "custom box background" and you'll find them. I prefer to use more specific ones though- so you can also use photos and drawings and stuff (mine is
I will be leaving dA for two years..Hey my awesome watchers and friends!I will be leaving dA for two years..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, yes, like the title says, I will be leaving dA for two years as of the 18th of April, so in about a week. This is a tough decision, as dA has become an important part of my life, because I am actually trying to build up a living with my art. But you should know, that I am a Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.. ) and I am 18, close to 19, so I am going on a mission. That means I will be going to the Alpine region (Switzerland, Austria, South-Germany) and talk to the people about what I believe in. You have to know, that this is something I carefully considered and I have a strong belief in God and so I want to share the joy my religion has brought me. The mission will be for two years and I wont have the time to upload any art to dA. My sister PixieCold will keep you up to date through journals on my page here, so you know what I am doing and how my life is going!
Please, if you disagree with

It's that time of year! Time for Secret Santa Sign-Ups!!!
We have 63 Santas so far! Sign up now! :iconsantalaplz:
I will leave sign-ups open until the 24th. Get your questionnaire in asap to get the most to pick from!
What is a Secret Santa?
The modern tradition of Secret Santas is a gift exchange, where the person receiving the gift doesn't know who the giver is going to be. In a work environment, you often give and receive multiple small presents before the big reveal. For our exchange, however, only one piece of art is necessary (though not required - if you want to go all out for someone, that is your own prerogative ). For the group, this is a secular proje

On December, a friend of mine, musher known as a legend, the great mentor to me has passed away, I traveled up to the mountains and went on mushing alone (skijoring: cross-country skiing + sled dog, it looks like that: http://i.pinger.pl/pgr221/0fa2234e000267884b460f96/justyna_kowalczyk_10.jpg but with a dog pulling you) with my leader Arnaq. Instead spending Christmas at cozy places, I've been very hardly training cross-country skiing (skate style) alone and with my dog as well. On that month I've been doing negatively physically as well mentally, especially that feeling of emptiness after losing someone where you will never see this person again- sport was absolutely to best thing to help myself to overthink many things and make me to stand on feet properly.
But other than sport by itself I did but that trip was kind of my personal memorial for that musher who passed away. In his name I went on mushing. For

Character Creation and RulesA comprehensive guide to roleplaying in RP groups can be found here for further reference: http://fav.me/d4ya3ypCharacter Creation and Rules3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Please be sure to adhere to the following rules when creating characters to enroll in Otherworlde:
Characters must be paranormal, supernatural, or magical in some way. No basic humans without any magical ability are allowed (though witches and warlocks certainly are).
Furries are not allowed. Characters can be nekomimis (ears and tail) but no more. Shapeshifters who turn into animals are perfectly fine as long as their humanoid form isn't furry.
Characters should fit the atmosphere of the location. This is a very dark place, so please don't have overly colorful characters or dress them in basic street clothes. They should represent the horror theme.
Characters must be sixteen or older. Exceptions might be made if your character is younger

Hello, welcome to Dolling 101! We'll be going over all the basics that every beginner doller should know. There's a lot, so let's get to it!
Lesson 1: Terminology/Vocabulary
What is a Doll?
It might help to begin this article by telling you what you're reading about! A doll, or as we call them on DeviantArt, Digital Dolls, are small graphics, usually pixel-art, of people and characters. People create these by taking a base body another person has made, and creating art on it - designing clothes and hair, and turning the blank template into whatever kind of character they can imagine.
I will go over dolls more in detail, but that's the very basic description. Please, read on!
What is a Base?
Bases! You're probably familiar with this term. That's right, those pixel line-arts of bald/naked people that

If you already had the pleasure to see pieces of this genre, I´m sure you´ve been amazed with what a surreal piece can offer, but if you haven´t . . . what better time than this one to learn and see the incredible options this style have for you?
But first, the most important thing is to know what we are saying when we refer to a "surreal photomanipulation." To have a better understanding, let´s ask the most basic question . . .
What is a Surreal photomanip?
Surreal photomanipulations displays the mind and imagination of an artist and its unique way to represent that into the final work. These pieces can be really appealing to the eyes or disturbing. Subconscio
