Hello lovely deviants!
It's contest time!
I'm going to be holding a little contest here. It's going to last until 1. July 2014
As some of you may have realised by now; I love eyes! So, I want to spread this love, by helping you see
(pun totally intended)the light.
So what is this contest about?!
DRAWING EYES! ..or painting
Basically anything that is traditional, no photomanipulation or digital art.
I'm going to be a little more specific here. I have some eye images in my stock folder: http://acjub.deviantart.com/gallery/40451955 . I want you to use any one
Fantastic Feature Tuesday #6this is a small sample of a vast collection of wonderful pieces of literature by fantastic writers. each deviation was carefully selected from a writer's gallery based on structure, impact and word usage. i try (try!) to feature deviants who get less spotlight than others and i will never feature the same person twice.Fantastic Feature Tuesday #63 years ago in Literature Features More Like This

Who Cares About the Literature Community?A few days ago we had a chat to discuss community issues and solutions (see the original journal for details). Huge thanks to everyone who came and raised awesome points!Who Cares About the Literature Community?2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
It took 45 minutes for the volume of talk to max out Sta.sh Writer's character limit and this chat went for two more hours, so I'm just going to summarize the key discussion points, starting with big actionables for CRLiterature and for the community.
I've put the chat stuff lower down as it's denser: the outside bullet is the issue, and the inside bullet is possible solutions (not necessarily in order, each point is really a response to the original issue). There is a lot to think about in there, but feel free to pick and choose the issues you care most about.
Sorry for leaving a lot of stuff out, but I hope you guys are too busy figuring out how best to act on what we discussed to pay too much attention

Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day Aug.1stSupporting Biblical ValuesChick-fil-A Appreciation Day Aug.1st3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This Wednesday (August 1st) is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day! For those of you who haven't heard the news lately, Chick-fil-A is a Christian fastfood company in the United States that is based on Biblical values. They have been very successful and make a yummy chicken sandwich. Recently the CEO made a statement about the Biblical definition of marriage and as a result has become involved in a "Culture War". For more details here is a link to a news article I read this morning: http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Latest-News-Wires/2012/0727/Chick-fil-A-Culture-war-in-a-chicken-sandwich-video
As Christians it is important for us to support companies that have enough back bone to stand up for their Christian beliefs. As the CEO said himself, having the freedom to believe what we want is what makes America so great.
For those who support Chick-fil-A's stance on Biblical standards, this Wednesday is the day to show yo
Oh noes it's NaNoWriMoooooHi guys! And gals. Hi peeps C:Oh noes it's NaNoWriMooooo9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am doing NaNoWriMo for the first time this year. I have wanted to do it for a few years now but I either didn't have a plotted novel to write or I was very busy with boring work stuffs (which is the case this year too but NO MORE EXCUSES!).
For those of you who don't know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and, you guessed it, it revolves around writing a novel in a month, well 50.000 words of it, to be exact. You can check it out here http://nanowrimo.org/ Basically you start writing you novel at the beginning of the month, though it is reccommended that you write the plot before that time, and if you can manage 50.000 words of it before the 30th then you submit your manuscript to validate your word count and you become the proud owner of a NaNoWriMo 2014 winner badge!!! Oh and a lot of other goodies http://nanowrimo.org/sponsor-offers So 50.000 words for the win!
This year I was ready. I had a novel I actually wanted to write, with or
How to cope with Art BlocksAlmost every single artist has at one point or the other in their life lost motivation, inspiration or even both and without the knowledge of how to deal with what we then call an Art Block, it can take a long time to overcome this lack of artistic drive. A time that might otherwise be used for further improvement and personal artistic growth.How to cope with Art Blocks3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So today I would like to give you a few tips on how to defeat an art block. There is no definite guarantee to either of them, as everybody experiences their blocking differently but maybe you can at least find small suggestions that will eventually help.
Inspiration is literally everywhere, you just need to open your eyes to see it.
We can find inspiration through:

Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de
Jo x Brick Truth or Dare"You sure I'll look.. good?" Jo asked for the 7th time with still a bit of doubt in her voice.Jo x Brick Truth or Dare3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Of course!" Anne Maria reassured her, pulling just a lock of Jo's golden hair and pulling it though a straightener.
Jo was nervous, yet exited at the same time. She had simply tried to walk to her cabin when she was met by the Cadet she had secretly had her eyes on for a while now. He had slowly asked her to have a dinner with him up in his room at Playa' De Losers. She was ecstatic to say the least inside, but was able to calmly say OK.
And now, the Jersey Shore reject, was getting her ready. (Not that Anne really wanted to do it, just a lack of things to do.)
Jo fidgeted in her seat. "How long is this gonna take!"
"Take a chill pill, I'm almost done!"
Jo rolled her eyes as she crossed her arms.
"There." Anne Maria said with confidence, as she turned Jo around to the mirror.
Jo was speechless. Her hair was straight, bangs to the side, with a light bump in the back.

Our First Contest! *Updated*Greetings Everyone!Our First Contest! *Updated*3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have some very exciting news to share with you all, we are going to hold our first contest for the month of October! We have partnered with dAhub for this contest.
The theme will be "Halloween" I know, a few other groups are doing Halloween themed contests, and since we would like as much support and participation as we can get for our first contest, we are going to allow (for this contest only!) deviations already created, and ones you're working on for other groups. While this is not ideal for us, we don't want to lose any participation due to other on going contests.
We have come up with, what I believe are some simple but important rules for this contest, and encourage you to follow them, or disqualification from the contest will occur, and we do not want to have to disqualify anyone.
Our Rules are:
+ One entry per member!
+ All art media accepted.
+ No mature content, please.

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
