Congratulations to Aya-no-Shrink-Ray
I will contact $Moonbeam13 for the distribution of your prize, it may take a little bit.
Monthly Food Challenge
It's a new year, so we're changing things up a little bit.
Starting in January, a three month premium membership* will be randomly drawn from the members that participate in the challenge.
This also means that we will be extra picky with those that do not follow the rules.
Theme of the month
The theme in this Valentine's month would be the ever dynamic and attractive treat: cupcakes
Your cupcakes can be in any flavors, any frosting and any toppings.
Make your work special with different decorations --- they can be a bitten cake or even a cup-cake pop!
Feel free to make whatever you want as long as the items are primarily made of clay and that they fit the food context.
Hope you have a loving and creative mo

Food. Polymer clay food. There's a strange fascination between polymer clay crafters to make food, if you ask many of us won't even be able to explain what's so addictive about making fake food. Some of it is crafted for doll houses and doll props, some people make beautiful jewelry with food, but some just make it because it's so incredibly fun.

Food As Art“So all you have to do is take a photo of your lunch and you get a DD?”Food As Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
“Food isn’t even art”
While I’ve been fortunate enough to have never encountered such comments, I’ve heard from older hats around dA than I that this is the sort of criticism they have received when their deviation has gained enough popularity to draw wider attention around the site.
Now, it would be easy enough to dismiss such notions by pointing out that art cannot be defined. It is a fluid entity, forever being shaped, changed, challenged and expanded. Art is usually considered to be anything produced by skill and/or imagination: to exclude an entire medium from it can only do a disservice to this wonderful entity.
But that’s too easy.
Instead, I’m going to take some time to explore all the creative aspects of culinary arts that make it a medium as worthy of the title ‘art’ as any. Not only is food art, it's everything in between.

Hi there ,
I finally launched a contest about my OC you can find on "The Endless Forest" game http://tale-of-tales.com/TheEndlessForest. Her name is Cedrel˙a, and I entirely imaginated how she looks.
My OC has lost her parents just after her birth. I want you to draw her dream where she protects her mother from an any attack led by her uncle and her grandfather, to illustrate her revenge desire. You can read the story about her parents here: http://endlessforest.org/community/genesis-2

Basic guide to promote your art in groupstranslated by my friend Planeptune :iconPlaneptune:Basic guide to promote your art in groups7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Promoting your art on Deviant Art is easier than you can imagine and there exists a quite effective method for whichever artist that has at least an average level of quality in their works.
The key to this method is in the DA group system. It is the most effective way to promote your art since a lot of subscribed members in these groups will come to see your works. However, this system varies according to the qualty of your work and the number of followers in each group.
The first step is to choose which are the best groups for your works. Many of them have their own regulations regarding which material is accepted. For example, let's talk about nude drawings. These works are not accepted in many groups and they can only be shared in certain groups that accept or focus on this subject.
Putting that issue aside though, the most important task is to find only the largest groups. That is because the greater the number of subscr
How to Advertise you WorkOriginally posted in JewelersGuild, a group I co-founded. I felt others may benefit from this as wellHow to Advertise you Work2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Recently someone posted a comment asking people to advertise for them. This has in turn led us to the conclusion that it is high time we wrote something about advertising your work. Not everyone knows this subject very well, or how to go about doing it.
First thing you need to know is that you must be the one to do the work. Don't ask someone else and offer a portion of the profits. That is considered rude, and quite lazy. You don't want that. You want to make a good impression. First impressions go a long way. Now if someone offers to advertise your work that's something else entirely.
Secondly, know who your customers are. This is something a lot of people don't consider, and thus do not know how to advertise their work properly. For example let's say you make steampunk jewelry. Your primary customers would be those who are into steampunk. Is your wo

Breakthrough Manips - New Feature Series!Breakthrough Manips shows off works by talented artists whose work receives less than 100 favorites. It's designed to help breakthrough the tough crowd called "popularity." We all want to be popular right? But is that really what's important? no. Sure it's nice to attract attention, to get your work out there and be known to create fabulous artworks. But being popular tends to block the way for other wonderful artists to be seen, and there are TONS of incredible artists whose work goes unnoticed. Just take a look at the first series of outstanding manips with less then 100 favorites. Go give them some lovin'!Breakthrough Manips - New Feature Series!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Reunite a FamilyI don't need to tell you how important families are. Whether you are the parent or the child, the worst thing that can happen is to be separated from each other. Now imagine yourself alone in the country, living with the constant fear that you may never see your loved ones again. Ana Cordoba doesn't need to imagine this nightmare because she is living it:Reunite a Family3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"At 19, being a U.S citizen--born and raised--I currently work an hourly job and share a home with three other people. At this time I'm on medical leave due to mental issues garnered from my parents' deportation. I have been recently diagnosed with PTSD and OCD--I have nightmares that one day I will wake up to the news that my parents are dead in war-torn Mexico. My mind is filled with the thoughts of what could have been, and it hurts so much. While that may not sound so severe to you, to my parents: it does."

SAY NO TO FREE ARTEvery day, there are more and more posts on here seeking "artists" for everything from auto graphics to comic books to corporate logo designs. More people are finding themselves in need of some form of illustrative service.SAY NO TO FREE ART8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But what they're NOT doing, unfortunately, is realizing how rare someone with these particular talents can be.
To those who are "seeking artists", let me ask you; How many people do you know, personally, with the talent and skill to perform the services you need? A dozen? Five? One? none?
More than likely, you don't know any. Otherwise, you wouldn't be posting on here to find them.
And this is not really a surprise.
In this country, there are almost twice as many neurosurgeons as there are professional illustrators. There are eleven times as many certified mechanics. There are SEVENTY times as many people in the IT field.
So, given that they are less rare, and therefore less in demand, would it make sense to ask your mechanic to work on your car for free? Woul

Sexy VS SexistIt seems that the gaming world is finally waking up to the fact that women DO actually play video games. They (the gaming industry) are not being mature about it, but the fact that a female perspective and voice is being heard more and more is a very good thing in my books.Sexy VS Sexist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The latest controversy to break out in the video game world has been over niche gaming studio Vanillaware's recent title "Dragon's Crown," and the absurdly sexualized female character of "The Sorceress" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQKCgal1vdw
Some people are, naturally, offended that such a ludicrous character design with no sense of reality or function even exists, while the other side keeps saying "why are we even talking about this?" Both sides are being vocal, but they also seem to be talking past one another. One side seems to want to rid gaming entirely of sexy character designs, while the other seems to think this is some sort of "feminist agenda" and are being sexist in response because they fear having a
