works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

Need textures?We had a feature of drawing references yesterday, so let's take a look at textures now. I must admit that I'm a total freak when it comes to this topic. I love textures, I love making them and I love seeing them everywhere. In this feature I'll also include some tutorials, traditional and digital, so you could learn how to make some on your own.Need textures?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Knowledge is Out There, Grasp It!EDIT 2/13/14:Knowledge is Out There, Grasp It!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Due to a few concerns that I'm overgeneralizing through my use of the word ignorant, I wanted to amend some things:
1. This journal was not written out of a pretentious attitude, in fact it's quite the opposite. I feel the need to share knowledge, and I do whenever I can. I could never be upset with those who truly do not know where to start when it comes to enriching their minds.
2. This journal is not about lording knowledge above those who do not yet possess it.
3. This journal is not about bashing someone for the barriers that can impede or prevent their desire or ability to absorb new information.
4. I do not encourage people to "just Google it," that is why resources are listed at the bottom.
5. If you would like to contribute a resource, please link it in your comments.
I’ve been hearing the phrase “I don’t know what ____ is” a lot as of late and it’s been a little irksome, and here’s why: we are currently living in

Facebook is NOT a GAME. Things you didn't know**HEY GUYS- THIS HAS BEEN UPDATED - **Facebook is NOT a GAME. Things you didn't know3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wrote this journal originally a couple of months ago, but now realizing that I kind of wrote this out of pure bitterness and judging..I admit it. So instead of saying all the wrong stuff people are doing with Facebook (self promoting or superficial beauty contests or who's the prettiest contest or who has the most likes and etc trying to get 3000+ friends.) I won't go on, you probably have a whole list of things that annoy or aggravate you on Facebook. Well I am here to inform you.
EVERY SINGLE THING YOU DO ON FACEBOOK IS not private or for you and your friends eyes only, UNLESS YOU CHANGE YOUR SETTINGS. There are a lot of creeps out there and you don't know who may be watching your stuff. If you are fine with it or do not think it is serious and no one is bothering, feel free to do what you please.
Hey! Mary Sue flashmob! + Meme!Hi everybody! I know this idea has probably been somewhere (I don't know, to be honest!) ... But let's create something like a flashmob!Hey! Mary Sue flashmob! + Meme!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Imagine that some cataclysm has happened ... For example, the sun released a special type of energy, which heavily influenced on our genotype and revealed new abilities. Now, almost every city has its superhero!
So you wake up and realize that you have some special powers. Or they occur suddenly and dramatically! What would they be? Imagine yourself dark past and epic future! You also need a companion. For example, as is usually happens in anime, a girl that is a superweapon! And, of course, lots of suffering!
The main condition: you should draw yourself. Your appearance, your favorite clothes. You can have ears, tail, horns ... Whatever you want!!! Choose a weapon and describe your abilities!
send the links on your references to the journal!

Commissions Contracts: A Must Have. Yes, there is a lot to read and Yes you should read it. Copy it, paste it and edit it to suit your needs as a commissioner or commissioned artist. Protect yourself by drafting a contract and understanding it.</a>Commissions Contracts: A Must Have.7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It has come to my attention that many deviants commission their work and hold proceedings entirely over deviantArt. In the case that your client/commissioned artist begins to use and distribute your work illegally you will need to have a greater standing than simply a bunch of e-mail print outs if you are to go to court over the matter of misuse. Often the matter is over misunderstanding, which a contract will also help clarify for both parties.
I cannot stress how important it is when doing commissions to have physical signed copies of an Artist/Client Commission Agreement or at the very least a signed confirmation of engagement. It takes longer to organise, especially with overseas clients, but it protects the rights of both parties to the work and is worth the day or so

100TC gets interactiveHey guys, new feature for you!100TC gets interactive4 years ago in Personal More Like This
A while ago dragonee contacted the group about an application he had made, offering it up for our use. The simple app opens in your browser and lets you pick a theme from whichever variation you're doing.
In Michals words, right now no login is required, the application remembers your current theme even if you close your browser window, so it's really easy to use.
Using this app is such an easy way to keep a simple record of your progress of 100TC, here's how it works:
This is the main page you'll see when you first use it, hit the "get my first theme" button.
Once you've completed the theme just hit the "OK, completed" button to get your next theme.
You'll notice in the top left corner there's a handy counter to tell you how many out of 100 you've done and how many you have left. Which variation you're working on is also displayed below and to the right of the theme.

I want to tell you how you can communicate with other deviants, with and without Internet.
As you know, everyone can send Notes to everyone (except !banned deviants). If you want to talk with somebody, why not to send a note?
Click at random deviant, it can be im-not-sana
First, look at im-not-sana's info: maybe you like her art, or you'd love to talk about her Conceptography Feature series, or you just want to know more about her, why not?
Click "send a note" and...write!
You don't know me, i'm a *name*, __years old. I'm living in *country*,
i see you're living *at the same country*.
I'd love to know something about you,
if you want we can chat here or use dAmn.
You can also use emoticons

ESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMICESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMICESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMIC3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
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

What does the title mean? Why did I even made this journal?
I made it mostly for the people who want to make a new start this year and make their life a bit better. Of course, not everything goes always as planned, but it is always nice to be positive and do nice things to be happy. So here are some advices to make the new year of your life better than the other ones.
No, I am not going to say tons of tips and stuff, because I am not good at it either, BUT I got inspired by a really good friend of mine and her idea, and I'd like to share my thoughts with you. Of course, I am looking forward for your repl

A brief history of FellaWe all know Fella. If you have been a member of deviantArt for at least 1 day it's quite probable you've encountered him at least once, he's everywhere! And this shouldn't come as a surprise, he's dA's mascot after all! But how much do you know about him? Let's take a look at a Brief History of deviantART's mascot.A brief history of Fella3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Fella was brought to life thanks to switched, who designed him back in April 2001 for a mascot contest.
Back then he didn't look exactly as we know him today, his figure was a lot more basic and circular and his expression wasn't as human as we're used to today. However his main features remain, his mischievous look and his colors, most probably based on the site layout's at the time
PE: Badges of DeviantARTCommunity WeekPE: Badges of DeviantART3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Badges of deviantART, why are they given? What is their purpose in deviantART?
Most of us know these badges since we signed up in deviantart.
How did deviantART come up with the idea to create badges? Any background stories?
"Badges started out as merit badges for deviantART staff. They were only available to staff for special accomplishments like merit badges for the boy scouts. We started making them available to members by way of special events like our 10th birthday bash and hidden pageviews. They gained a lot of popularity about 3 years ago with the introduction of the llama badge system for our annual April fools prank. The rest is history, you guys can't seem to get enough of them. "
"The first badge was an april fools joke, the llama badge, free to give and they would evolve the more you received.
They were so well received, we followed it up with real
