A (modern) history of dA emoticonsIntroA (modern) history of dA emoticons2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
As you wander around deviantART pages, there is noticeably one art medium that invades almost every element of the site. Whether it is the deviantART galleries, journals, news section, comments, forums, chatrooms, avatars or even dA profiles, it is hard to find a spot that hasn't been infiltrated by a familiar set of small, coloured, pixel circles. The art form I am talking about is of course the emoticon and throughout the past 10 or so years they have been happily adopted by deviantART and its community.
Although emoticons can often be spotted on a wide range of other instant messengers (IMs) and social media sites, deviantART has come to house a unique branch of these miniature art pieces. Whilst the majority of these alternative sites opt for simple, predominately yellow emotes with a range of basic expressions, the art community here at dA have stretched the art form far beyond its natural boundaries and developed entirely new styles of emoticons

Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.
Beat your fear
Most artblocks come from fear. The fear of not being able to

Come one, come all! In light of Baron's sudden disappearance his most well guarded secrets are no longer under his protection! Aside from his castle, a multitude of isolated underground bunkers have been discovered all over Ooo, each containing various alchemic and bio-organic ingredients used by Baron himself.
This is your chance! Your chance to be the mad scientist you've always knew you could be. It doesn't matter what you do! According to Baron's notes, all the provided elements are sure to create something living at least. The only catch is that you must follow the directions as provided, or the experiment will backfire!
From these lists you must choose the proper ingredients that correspond to you! Interpret your selection in which ever way you like. In the end, your selection will determine the result of your experiment.
Some PeopleLol my friend just showed me this string of tumblr posts about this artist ranting over one of her commissioners and I just kinda lost it. Seriously, an artist complaining about her commissioners shouldn't get commissions. That person commissioning you is your fan, not just your fan, a REALLY BIG fan willing to pay you to draw. There are a thousand million other artists but they chose you.Some People1 year ago in Personal More Like This
To me a commission is the biggest compliment ever. Some one likes my art well enough they are willing to pay me to do what I love. I don't care if I have the pickest, most complaining, whiniest commissioner ever. The fact they wanted my artwork is good enough for me to tolerate any level of shit. Sure more difficult commissioners who want a thousand changes I might charge extra for the extra work but I sure as hell am going to be polite and kind to them! I would never complain about them openly.

A Killjoy Christmas PoemA Killjoy Christmas Poem1 year ago in Personal More Like This
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and in the first Zone,
A little red Killjoy was headed for home.
His sled was a Trans Am with sand-crusted tires,
And a sleek gleaming hood with a spindly spider.
The windows were down, and the radio blared,
And a chill winter wind whipped the frost through his hair.
The Trans slightly swerved on the ice-covered road,
Leaving slushy brown tracks in the powdery snow.
In the trunk of the car sat a small leather bag,
Covered in stitches, old patches, and tags.
Heavy lumps shifted beneath the worn leather,
Clanking and chilling in the icy cold weather.
Inside the dark kitchen, with a rusty steel grill,
Kobra curled up on a mattress to ward off the chill.
With a glowing orange heater that hummed on the floor,
And a heavy blue blanket that warmed him to the core.
Ghoul was sprawled out in the cramped storage room,
Squeezed in with the buckets, the towels, and brooms.
His mouth hung wide open, and he let out a snore,
[Mini-Tutorial]Posing Long Bone ChainsSince the smartprop tutorial got me an astonishing number of faves, watches, and page views, I gather the forum is not filling everyone's tutorial needs. Please feel free to request additional text tutorials for DS4.5 and Genesis here. I'm fully of the opinion that information should be free and competition should be based on merit, not on knowledge control. With that said, it has to be something you're willing to see in text-only format, and some requests will be declined ("Build A Working Giant Mech From Start to Finish" is something I technically know but one, I've never done it, and two, it would take too long to do a tutorial).[Mini-Tutorial]Posing Long Bone Chains2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Though I have done a journal about mental/invisible illnesses before, with my recent venting journal and the death of Robin Williams. It made me want to speak about it once more.
Not only that, but people's comments on my vent journal, including my previous poll (not the contest one, the one before that) made me think as well, so...
Do we need to expect people just KNOW you're not well?
Not really. Unless you've mentioned you're illness to them, they don't know what's wrong with you. However there are people who can 'read' you and just know something isn't right or if you're not feeling yourself. Not all people can read people easy and considering we put the mask on when around others, to some nothing is wrong with us.
When you've told someone about your illness, should they mind their own business when they start making out as if you're lying/faking your illness?

Adds footprints for when you run in snow or ash. Makes animals and dragons leave prints as well. Good for hunter immersion.

I am curious [opinions please?]What do you guys (all of you) consider to be 'Furry' art?I am curious [opinions please?]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is is just animal art in general? Anthropomorphic animals? Or is it the more humanized animals?
Do you actually differentiate between the two?
To me the gap between Furry and Anthro art is relative I guess and it's mostly based on the build and make of a character's physique really. Characters that are still more animal than human to me are anthros and those that appear more hominid or humanized would be Furry.
My personal definitions::
Anthro would be like this -- There's not all that many hominid aspects to it other than the stance (upright). There's still a lot of animal in the build and anatomy more or less.
To me I'll still consider a character to be anthro even if the character is wearing clothes. If the anatomy for the most part is still animal (digi-grade feet, clawed hands, the leg build, etc) and it's still rather... idk, 'wild' or maybe even feral
