I guess I'll better start judging soon, though it's going to be pretty tough. I have so many favorites worthy of 1st place.
I will announce the winners sometime over the weekend ^^
If someone would like to donate some points for runner ups there's still a bit of time left.
And please go give those awesome artists some attention : )
So today would be the last day to submit your pieces for the contest. However since I got only one entry so far and few people asked for extension, I will be moving the deadline until January 31st!
Hope you have fun on New Year's!
So here we go:
In the late celebration of getting my copyright certificate on these guys, I want to hold an art contest involving my original race - easkulls.

Preventing Injuries for Artists (and people who work with computers)
Hello there my fellow deviants, time for a new update. It’s a long entry, so go grab a snack and sit tight with a good posture, because there's a lot to learn here - even some anatomy.
I just read about Loish’s injury on her blog, and it’s truly saddening to see a fellow artist struggling with a physical limitation that affects their workflow.
Loish is absolutely right, the body has its limits and we ought to be careful before it’s too late.
Tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, aren’t stranger terms to me, many artists and people who work with computers for many hours, tend to deal with the same conditions, some let it advance to the stage where the only treatment is surgery, which can potentially reduce mobility and destroy an illustrator’s career.

I believe that Minecraft is the future of massive multiplayer games, and I'm surprised that none of the big developers/publishers have cottoned onto it yet.
They look at Minecraft and think its success is down to its business model, or to its blocky, retro charm.
It's down to the fact that you get out of it what you put into it.
With a MMORPG, there are pre-scripted quests. With Minecraft, you set the quests yourself or others.
User created content is the key. All you have to do is provide the players with the tools to build.
There are two types of gamer: wall builders and wall breakers.
Wall builders are the ones that spend an age in an RTS game getting their base just right. They play SimCity and act as Dungeon Master during an RPG.
Wall breakers are the type to follow the mission brief. They get set a quest and they follow it. They're the Call of Duty crowd and they're never more happy than when

How to Improve Your WritingHow to improve your writingHow to Improve Your Writing3 weeks ago in Literature Features More Like This
In 2013 I wrote an article called How to get more views on your Literature. I wanted to give actual practical advice from people who know, writers established in the DA lit community.The article was (and still is) very popular and seems to have helped a lot of folks so I decided to tackle a different (but way more important question)... how can we make our writing the best it can be?
Because it's great to show work to your friends but self improvement, or working towards a goal (for a lot of us that's a writing career, a novel, publication, competitions etc) is a whole different thing. So I asked some of DA's finest to spill the beans and answer those commonly asked questions 'How did you get so good?' 'Will I ever be able to write like this?' and 'Hi, is this Dominos?' (wrong number).
In How to get more views... I promi
Being Unscientific with SRSmithWho doesn't love science fiction?Being Unscientific with SRSmith1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
If you just said "me," keep reading—you'll change your mind by the end of this article. (If you don't, I reserve the right to send a drone to your house. Isn't living in The Future great?!) As you'll see, science fiction goes beyond funny aliens and laser beams that conveniently miss. Some have even argued that, without science fiction, the Internet wouldn't have happened, and then we'd all be...outside right now. Quel horreur!
SRSmith has been a mainstay of the dA literature community for a long time, and he showcases other awesome dA writers on his flash fiction project,365tomorrows.
What is "science fiction"?
In my opinion, Science Fiction is any story that uses present or future science or technology as a key component, or where it provides the required underlying fabric on which the story is built. Future science or technology is speculative by nature, a

Alicorn TwilightAt the moment, the episode has not come out yet. Though, alicorn Twilight has been something hinted at since season one, and as a writer I am excited to see change and appreciate the possibility of having some clarity on the mythology of Equestria. I highly doubt the show creators would break the friendship of the characters, nor would they make Twilight "Outlive" her friends. Remember who the target audience is: Young, impressionable little girls with dreams of being their own princess in some way. To see a character they are familiar with becoming a princess, not from being related to royalty but instead from her own hard work and diligence is inspiring for a young child.Alicorn Twilight3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We've seen many princesses who are given this role from the start. Our poor, Disney girls always pining for something more, sitting in their sheltered life longing for a prince or an adventure. Instead, we are seeing a young woman who has EARNED her place as a princess from her kindness, knowledge, and her experienc

My deviantART StoryMy deviantART Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This was my very first DA submission I had seen a wallpaper very similar so I used it as my inspiration to do a digital painting in PS.
I was new to the digital Art scene and had basic PS experience, due to a disability I could no longer use my Pencils to hand sketch which was always my favorite medium.
So I thought I would give digital Art a go and chose to make use of PS, that was a little over 1 year ago.
So I began browsing DA and getting familiar with things and checking out the different styles of Art.
That is when I came across this beautiful piece by my Friend Xzendor7, I was blown away!
I was really curious as to how this was done, and Rolando always gives a very detailed description of his process.
This is how I came to know about Fractals and Fractal Art and also what makes a "Fractal Composition" , it was love at first sight so to speak
This is "Sakura" my very first attempt at maki
I met Phil CoulsonOnce apon a time I went to see Captain America, when I left the theater this random guy pops out of a corner right in front of me and this was our conversation:I met Phil Coulson3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Guy: So did you like the movie!?
Me: ...Yeah, it was really good... (.__.;
Guy: I KNOW! What was your favorite part!?
Me: Hard say... it was all really good...
Me: Well I have to go *Shuffles away* (>_>)
Guy: Ok... *goes back and waits for the next group of people to leave the theater*
Later that day me and my friends were cracking up making jokes about how that guy was a weirdo fanboy nerd and that talking we had was probably the highlight of his week (Of couse we didn't really mean it, that would just be messed up).
But just know I realized... that guy was Phil Coulson... in disguise.... and I feel really bad...

-The drawing will be on Sunday, 5/13/12. I'm going to draw the winner at 8:00 PM CST (My time)

About the plush:
It will be made with my basic pony pattern. I don't know the exact height because fleece stretches a little differently than minky, but it should stand at least 15 inches tall.

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEW!!!!!!!I was at the local Cheesecake Factory last night, preparing to stuff my previously blessed face. We sat down to eat, when all of a sudden, A Wild Menu Appeared! I used a quick attack on it, hoping to find something yummy to eat. Boom! ¨what the Magic!?!¨ I said, stopping on page 11 of the menu. Chicken and Biscuits!!! the description read: chicken breaded to a flaky crust, in a bite-sized shape, with a warm, toasted biscuit, on top of mashed potatoes. I had worn my Tobuscus t-shirt that day, so I REALLY wanted to get that!!!! the best part was when the waitress came. 'can i take your order?' 'yes, I'd like the chicken and biscuits, dipped in mashed potatoes plez!!!!' I said in my Toby-quoting voice. I cried when she leaned down and whispered: 'would you like some barbecue sauce with dat?'WHEEEEEEEEEEEEW!!!!!!!4 years ago in Personal More Like This

And Smash 4. OH MY GOD. Megaman!!! The closest you can get to Astro in Smash. MORE HYPE. I'll def be getting those games. No reveal whether or not Mewtwo is in it yet (well.. Newtwo I should say) but I'm sure he'll be an unlockable character like in Melee. He was SUPPOSED to be in Brawl, but last minute constraints cut him out. His files have been found in the game. So, that's another reason for me to believe he'll be in Smash WiiU. And it would make sense as well, because he's back representing Gen 6 in his newest film. Which I'm ALSO hyped about.
