[OVER] CONTEST TIME! Let's Draw Rory!I've decided to throw together a little contest for you guys! Here's how it's gonna go down:[OVER] CONTEST TIME! Let's Draw Rory!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
First off, let me explain what the contest actually is. Since I'm heading to Anthrocon this year, I'm going to take Rory down with me because I mean, come on, who can handle that much cute? The thing is I don't have any badges of him at all... so that's where the contest comes in!
Anyone who wants to enter this contest just has to do these things:
Draw a badge of Rory! I don't care what style or theme, go crazy! Full body, bust, square, circle, pentagon... what ever you want Here's a ref for you guys:
I'll take care of the printing and laminating of the badge after the contest, so don't worry about that. Just upload the digital file (which leads me to the next step...)
COMMENT ON THIS JOURNAL with a link to your badge entry! I'll make a folder in my favorites specifically for

TIPS AND ADVICEOver the last few weeks I’ve been getting lots of requests for tips and advice. So I thought instead of answering each one I will give an overall guide to what I’ve learnt over the last year using graphite. And some of the things I’m going to say may sound very obvious but I’m trying to cater for artists of all levels so just ignore the bits you already know (I apologise for how long this is).TIPS AND ADVICE1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But before I go on I must point out though, that I am no expert and this is just what I’ve found works for me so may not work for everyone. And I have only really started getting used to using graphite pencils recently, as I had not drawn for 11 years until September 2012. And so I am still learning myself and have only found out what works for me from allot of practising and trial and error. Also I am not going to go into doing skin textures as I’m still learning what works and it’s far too complicated to describe on here.
Firstly you are onl

Stardust -- Woe
When a Stardust dies, from their remains a Woe is born
Stardust embodiment of a fallen star
When a star falls to earth the remains of the star turns in the creature Stardust. Their body are made up or stars and dust. Sand tends to drop from the end of their long tails and pieces of stars likes to come of their body and orbit them. Stardust creates stars for the night sky. Once they create so many stars and their body depleted of the original fallen star their body turns to a pile of sand.
Woe feeds on nightmares and fear
From the remains of a Stardust a Woe is born. They are still the same, just have a different body. This time made of shadows and wisps. Even though they look scary with their blank eyes and sharp teeth, the

Edit: I've never expected such a massive response to this journal. But because it's gone all over the internet... I would like to settle a few things first... because I keep getting the same replies over and over again.
1. I made this journal as being my personal opinion. I'm not stating facts here. I'm just saying how I personally feel about drawing fanart. Please don't take this journal as a fact, because it isn't. It was never intended that way.
2. I don't expect you to agree with me. I don't mind either. I'd like you to reply why you think differently. Provide me with your insight and experiences. I'd love that.
3. I'm well aware that I can't change anything about most of these facts. I brought them up for discussion because I want to hear what other pe

This contest allows media such as:

The styles may be manga/anime, semi realistic, realistic, whatever, but only digital paintings please.
I'd like to see your OC on canvas this time maybe we'll see 3D on next contest.
I personally love OCs, they are made from our imagination and during years I saw really epic OCs, sometimes they're better

Art Thieves & What To Do About ThemHey, guys, AikouDesu here. To my surprise, we've had an increase of art thieves lately-- something that unfortunately cannot be prevented nor foreseen. It will become more frequent the bigger ALL-ART-4-EVER gets, so I wanted to post some tips and info about how to deal with art thieves.Art Thieves & What To Do About Them8 months ago in Personal More Like This
What you can and should/shouldn't do about them
1. Do not talk to them.
Art thieves are essentially just your run-of-the-mill internet trolls, and thus they feed on the negative feedback they get from doing this. Sometimes they just want the attention, other times they just want to deliberately upset others for the fun of it. Commenting on their profile or stolen artwork will just add fuel to the fire.
Sometimes art thieves try their hardest to seem like the original artist with the intention of selling the art.
2. DeviantART ignores third-party reports.
In order for DeviantART to do anything about an art th

There's a group now - feel free to head over to TheTitlePage! We're still in set-up mode, so excuse the plainness for now.
Found Poetry Project - Titles as Art
One of my favorite things about the creative process is coming up with a good title. The title can make or break a piece; it can give context not provided in the piece itself, set a tone or mood, or just give that little extra something you can't put a name on.
You know I'm right. How many times have you stumbled into an ordinary piece with a beautifully creative title? And it's not something

Iiiiit's contest time! All original literature welcome.
This is a speculative fiction contest—the technology requirement could cover steampunk, 'John Carter,' 'The Windup Girl,' 'Watchmen,' '2001: A Space Odyssey' or about anything else you can think of. The one thing that isn't permissible is magic.
That was a joke.
Your story must center around the development of a relationship between two entities.
Some things to consider:What kind of relationship is it? (No, "relationship" doesn't have to mean "romance.")Who/what is it between?Is the development positive/negative?
The relationship must be noticeably changed at the end.Distance/death don't count if they're still besties or whatever.I don't mean changed personalities. I mean a changed relationship.
Plausible but (currently) nonexistent technology must be integral to the development of this relationship.Time travel goes forward.Nothing goes faster than light, a
reposted art removalI think a lot of people might already know this but having only recently found it myself. I think it's a good opportunity to share it with everyone! If someone has posted your art on deviantart without your permission, there's a really simple way of having taken down instead of filing a report (which, from experience is completely ineffective). All you have to do is fill out this form, it's a DMCA form which means as the copyright owner of the art you can elect to have it taken down, by law.reposted art removal1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I didn't find out about filing DMCAs on deviantart until I googled it (silly I know) but they have long existed on tumblr and I've also seen one on weheartit.com. Filing DMCAs seem to be a lot more effective, the art is taken down in a couple of days. And in the case with tumblr all reblogs of the post in question are also deleted, along
