AND THE WINNERS ARE...
What the judges were saying: This one we felt made the best use of the three colors! It's a psychedelic, very unique Metroid fanart! All three colors are used almost equally and utilized in a way that moves the eye's focus to Samus herself. Great stuff! Congratulations on your first place win, ticktock2time!
What the judges were saying: Vidimus78 used the three colors in another alluring method; the pink really brings in the focus in a void of green, with little orange detailing that makes the image all the more interesting to look at. Absolutely lovely!
What the judges were saying: Who could say "no" no an animated entry? (click the preview to go to the video)

right off your skin, i wish i could
sharpen my tongue to match yours
but it's blunt no matter how much i grind it
on the whetstone, time keeps hearts
unmalleable, insists that i must close the doors
before i open the windows, i think
i broke into a dream that wasn't mine, i climbed
the fence, i hopped the gate, i came upon
something good and i stole it - a natural disaster
grew out of my chest, a watery trail of
green, i still remember that corpse
in the oven and i know she would have loved
you all the same, don't blame yourself, i think you would
have hated the taste of spring,
just like your mum
something has happened
i can't think your name, much less speak
it out loud, you know the air won't give it
time of day, and now i'm keeping count
of all the plots i've lost, and i think that
this might be one of them, keeping a count of
the times that death has said don't fuck
me over, and i can make small talk with god but
it's so much easier w

New Voices Wagon Project is a non-profit project based in Leicester, United Kingdom, whose aim is to promote reading and writing among migrant communities. As a platform for self expression and an opportunity to explore the use of writing as a therapeutic tool, New Voices aims to empower and break barriers through stories. These stories are collected and published in various media covering issues to do with immigrants, particularly refugee welfare from voices of refugees themselves.

By creating an opportunity to establish a wide network of writers from the refugee community and beyond, New Voices aims to build bridges, promoting better relations between immigrants and the wider community.

Witches of East End ShareWitches of East End 1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Based on Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling novel, Witches of East End centers on the Beauchamp family, where in season one sisters Freya and Ingrid discovered they are witches with ancient magical powers. With the help of their mother Joanna and Aunt Wendy, they learned how to cultivate their craft and work together to defeat unearthly enemies seeking revenge on their family, while keeping their abilities a secret from the town.
This season, with the portal to Asgard open, what comes through will forever change the lives of the Beauchamps. Darkness surrounds East End as a new stranger arrives. Joanna is still weak with poison in her blood as the Beauchamps search desperately for a cure. With the death of Penelope, Killian and Dash's warlock powers return. #DarknessIsRising

Pokemon Paperchildren Challenge!THE CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED!!!Pokemon Paperchildren Challenge!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR INTEREST AND TO THOSE TAKING PART!!
This is a challenge open to anyone of whatever age, skill or style. The goal is to make a pokedex entirely of Pokemon paperchildren! Or Papermon for short.
We'll be doing the first 151 Pokemon to start with! With everyone's ideas combined, it would really make a fun and original pokedex created by several Deviant artists and a huge achievement for those who participate. There are a lot of Pokemon so the more artists working together; the better! If you'd like to join PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BELOW!
WHAT IS A PAPERCHILD?
A paperchild is a cut out of a character or monster etc that you have drawn and coloured, usually by hand, and is no bigger than your hand (normally!). Many Deviant artists have made them to look as though they're interacting with how you hold them or the environment around them, making it fun to come up with poses to draw them in!
Here are some examples:

Lucifer - The Fallen by *RainerKalwitz
Marble, Granite, Bronze, Silver, Gold!
Early statuary depicted one’s god’s, and since the medium is
as much the message as the visual message itself – the medium had
to proclaim: This god is as forever lasting as this stone that His
rendering is hewn out of! But all that is solid eventually melts
away into the air, even the most powerful ancient gods and kings –
As the poet Shelley so poignantly noted in Ozymandias.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp’d on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock’d them and the

Chaos and Evolution - 1h30 of open tutorialsOn my recent 'move cleaning' , I decided to release my full Chaos&Evolutions DVD to the public for free on Youtube. So, to not post every chapter separated, I remixed all the main lessons into a 1h30 epic-to-render HD video ( in Kdenlive ). I also did cut, merge, etc... The tool used ( Gimp-painter 2.6 ) on the video is outdated , but the core course is still ok and the DVD wasn't about the tool anyway. Any digital painting software ( Krita, Mypaint, SAI, Photoshop , etc... ) should work for it. Those basic and simple lessons will feet beginners in research of more self discipline and a structured workflow about the act of painting using layers and digital tools as a global concept. For more advanced user ; the content might be too simplistic and I'm ready to receive rants about it too.

And here is next part of my journal Photoshop tutorials. Previous tutorial you can see here. I added even document settings, cuz I forgot to add this in previous tutorial I'll describe some Photoshop basics for all newbies who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: Document settings, Changing view, Changing thumb size on layers, Using Smart Object and Blur, Using Pen Tool, Outer Glow and Transform.

maybe 'author' is too officialYou publish one book - one tiny and extremely personal poetry book *for* personal review - and suddenly everyone is coming out of the woodwork to grasp their peanut butter and cheeto-layered fingers onto the corners and crumpled pages of my soul. Parents who never before cared I was a writer - the ones who don't remember how their words of "artists die cold and hungry. Get a real job" impacted the rest of my future planning and changed my brainwaves to a channel I cannot recover them from; because artists die empty and alone.maybe 'author' is too official5 months ago in Personal More Like This

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta
