Just messing around with Deviant ArtI have been really bad at keeping up with things here. So this year( I know it's a bit late for Resolutions) but this year I plan to make it a go. I'm going to try cross posting and all kinds of other stuff that people say i should do. So I'll be adding more stuff and hopefully talking with more people and being more active. I really love coming to look at work on Deviant art, and I think it's time I gave back more art to the world.

Q. Why do you hold these giveaways?
A. I do it for fun of course! People usually donate points to support me and I hold these giveaways to give back to the rest of these users on DeviantART. No it's not a lot of points, but it's something!
Q. Why do you ask people to fave a deviation? Why not allow them to just comment on the journal or deviation?
A. Because when they fave the deviation, I can click on the "view who has faved this" button and it gives me an already made list that I can easily put into random.org, and that saves me A LOT of time. If I had to go through the comments and write down every single

Your (Brother/Lusus) was very nice and kind to you, but he can act violent when something would happen to his friends or family. You snuggled into his hair more, you could feel your eyes drooping. You were about to fall asleep when Kitkat abruptly stood up, you were now full awake again. He closed the book, setting it down on the glider. He reached up, you released your grip from his hair as he lifted you off of his head.

Do not work for freeI received an email soliciting artwork for the second volume of"The Fantasy Illustration Library: Gods and Goddesses”.Do not work for free1 month ago in Personal More Like This
The jist of it was: Pick your god or goddess! Make art for us! After we get all the art, we’ll try to do a Kickstarter to produce the book and if we make enough money, we might pay the artists! Don’t pay attention to the un-affordable nature of the book’s price point ($100) because we’ll totally pay you royalties!!
This brand of “proposal” is predatory, dishonest, and frankly incompetent. (And art budget for an art book?? Who’d ever even think of that!) People who organize business models like this are assholes, no words minced. Do not take the bait. Do not get involved. Do not lessen yourself, your work, your skill and time, by participating in this kind of pig swill.
No amount of experience or exposure is worth it. You know what else gets you experience and exposure? Payin
Murder at the Castle! Let the investigation begin!Last night, Cinderella was to host the greatest ball in all the land in honour of her Husband, Prince Charming. It had been months of hard work; every servant and helper furiously putting together the finest of touches to ensure everything was perfect. Invitations had been sent out to exclusive friends and acquaintances alike, reaching the farthest parts of fairyland. It was to be the event of the century.Murder at the Castle! Let the investigation begin!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There was no denying, Cinderella had become highly stressed of late. Organising such a fabulous ball had taken its toll, especially when perfection was her objective. Her inner control freak had taken over and she no longer cared who she upset or angered as long as the ball was exact. Friends were no longer happy with her, she wouldn't keep promises- let alone attend unnecessary events such as Alice's weekly tea party. In fact, even her own husband, who all this was for, had not been in her mind.
The Ball was lavish; champagne fountains, golden swans, shimmery streamers, a stylish d&

ESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMICESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMICESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMIC2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hi I’m Andrea Dotta: a Pro comic artist and animator and one year ago I had the insane idea of making a powerful webcomic to show my works to more people as possible. Now I’m in a positive development towards my goal. If you want to do a webcomic, always do your best as their are millions of webcomics on the internet.
In this article, I would like to share the things that I’ve learned this year so I hope you will get something from me.
IDEA: There are no bad ideas, there are only ideas that are not developed. To develop your idea, you need to be authentic - think of your real life experiences to give credibility to your story. If you need a sad story, think of a sad story in your life. If you want a happy story, think and say what i
New DeviantART Thumbnail Grid is HilariousStuff I SayNew DeviantART Thumbnail Grid is Hilarious2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
In another of deviantART's recent baffling decisions, likely to try and stop the user hemorrhage, they decided its time for an update to the thumbnail grid. If you're not a beta tester you wont have seen it yet but boy oh boy its not great. Basically if you post a wide aspect ratio image it gets way more space on the front page. So what I propose is that whenever we post images we add a ton of width to the image, be it transparent or not, so that we can game the system. If you want more attention on deviantART, just post wide images.

Now since this is our first contest ever, we'd like to start things off by dedicating this contest to making something special for the group.
And by something special, we mean a group mascot! You know, a sort of spokes person that pops up to announce when something big is going down for the group.
THAT'S WHERE YOU COME IN!!!!
We'd like it for you, the people of DA, to be the ones who come up with the design we use for the mascot we use. You can make it however you think it will fit into the group! [I love deviantART!]

It has now been two weeks since the beautiful fairy tale that was my life has come crashing down into utter devastation and nightmare.
My darling beloved, my Princess, my Cinderella is no more.
She has been taken away from me and from all of you, her legions and generations of fans of her grand and glorious story, by dastardly murderers most heinous, heartless and foul... and as of this hour still unknown.
The personal story of my Cinderella has always been a reassurance (to youth but to all ages as well) that true love will always conquer all adversity, sabotage, and lies. My dear Cinderella
