After a 3 year absence, the Holiday Card Project returned in 2012 and was more successful than ever! Over 2500 deviants from 60 countries participated this year, with more than 3500 cards received. With such an excellent response, we wanted to ensure we were spreading the love as much as possible. We asked for volunteers to help distribute cards to their local hospitals, and with the extra assistance of a few super deviants, we were able to distribute cards to 23 hospitals around the world!
Most hospitals were comfortable taking the cards and distributing them to patients on food trays or through hospital volunteers. While we aren't always able to interact

Difference between selling Art and selling MeatGreetings Ryceballs. Today I am gonna be talking about the differences between selling art and selling meat.Difference between selling Art and selling Meat2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is absolutely fascinating how different the two can be! :iconyoudontsayplz: ... Well first of all, an artist likes their work to be appreciated and let the audience see for themselves whether they want to buy their artwork or not. While a butcher (ESPECIALLY ASIAN ONES LIKE THE ONE IN THE ARTWORK) only cares about selling the meat and making the profit, they have no sentimental feelings towards what they are selling, because if they do then there won't be any meat to sell right? One of the main rule of a butcher is to have no emotional attachment towards the animals, because they know sooner or later the animal needs to be chopped up. Well what about artists? Well they put their blood, sweat and tears into their artwork to make it as pretty as possible, all in hopes that the audiences would enjoy their art as much as the artist enjoy making them. NOW here's the thing thoug

THE NEXT THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE
I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I
Negative remarks on your art:As you move through the art world you will come upon many people who have opinions on your work and unfortunately some may be negative or extremely mean spirited. But if there is anything I could advise on this matter is that not letting a few nay sayers get to you is just part of becoming a successful artist. Don’t let it stop you, or deter your improvement. Your art is an extension of you, no matter how “good” or “bad” you may be. Hold it dear to you like you do your beliefs, gender, family. It’s all there for your own pleasure and feeling of self worth and pride and no one should be able to snuff that out or stop you from continuing what makes you a wonderfully artistic person on their own journey through life.Negative remarks on your art:10 months ago in Personal More Like This

How to Write an Artist's (or Author's) CommentsNearly all of us, if not every single one of us, have come across a deviation that just has a disappointing '...'. Conversely, some of us have even come across a massive wall of text.How to Write an Artist's (or Author's) Comments5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Whether we are the people who ask ourselves, "Is that it?", or whether we are the people who ask ourselves, "What can I say?", this guide will hopefully provide you with some insight in how to go about writing a good description for your deviations, a.k.a. your Artist's (or Author's) Comments.
IIIXII has already written a beautiful guide here. He mentions a great point and that is that your artists comments are the only thing that might motivate a reader or viewer to comment your work
How many of us want constructive comments, critiques and, most importantly, feedback on our pieces?
Thus, is it only fair that if we want something back, we have to give something as well?

In case anyone would wonder - FEEL FREE TO SPREAD THE WORD
Do you have the moxie to attend?
Now in its fourth official year, DAJN is even bigger and better (and more experienced.)
What is DAJN?
DAJN is just what it sounds like. A series of equine art community-wide events involving naked jockeys, and naked grooms, and naked vets, and naked owners, etc (in the begining only throughout the month of October). Participants draw their fictional characters in the buff (keep in mind though, that your entries must abide by dA rules, characters may not be minors, may not be engaged in sexual activity, and our male members may not be...ahem....at attention.)
Most participants choose to have their "jockeys" (or riders, handlers, owners, grooms etc) tastefully covered and most choose to go with a fictional character of their own or one they invent on a whim. While you can't be barred from artistically stripping

In The Shadow of Dragons
"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"

5 days left...It's been 10 years since I've packed a single bag without hesitation and left home, full of dreams of love and big world, enthusiastic about finally being an adult - at least officially. At that time, I haven't considered feelings of my mother and father much, seeing me going away with such thrill, I didn't think they would miss me anyway, the apartment was so small with all five of us in it and everyone too full of their own worlds to care for mine. I wouldn't need anything, some clothes, books, my earring collection and a clay cup my boyfriend gave me for birthday. I was 18, of course I was the smartest of all and in no need for other opinions. My boyfriend was six years older and I adored every piece of him for the whole time of our relationship.5 days left...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
