Manips for Charity ProjectHiya Darlings,Manips for Charity Project2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'm about to ask for your support on a project. I am reaching out to the photomanipulators and digital artists on this one. It is strictly for charity and non-profit. For some of you, it may be asking too much. I understand, but for those of you who are willing to participate, I will give you unlimited free access to my exclusive stock gallery. I don't have much in the way of points to donate to this venture. Though for every person that participates* I will give them anything they want with no amount limit out of my exclusives folder. I have already donated one artwork to the cause and intend to make a few more. Those who donate will also be featured at The-Stock-Directory and Fantasy-Paradise. Keep in mind that this is not a traditional contest with winners, but a collective group effort to help out the sanctuary.

Are you ready?
...are you sure?
Well, It's finally here....
Hi everybody, SepticSkeptik here with my newest, super-sized contest. Now, I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm going on vacation, so this contest will be 2 weeks long, rather than my usual weekly contests. There's still going to be a loose theme, but it's just going to last twice as long. So, without further fucking around ...
This contest's loose-theme is music.
So this will be a bit different than usual. You can use a drumset, a xylophone, note symbols, real cymbals, lyrics, spoons, make a picture of an artist, etc., whatever associates with music. I'm just trying to stretch the boundries of the loose-theme a bit; make it a bit broader. So you could still make a kick ass picture of a blood-thirsty pinecone, devouring a squirrel, and have a tiny guitar by your name, i

It's that time again.
For this contest, you are being offered a "stock bank" to select your stocks from. There is no particular theme; just wing it!
The majority (but not 100%!) of your manipulation must contain stocks from the given choices. You may find some textures or other little odds and ends to use. Also, you do not need to use a piece from each category listed below (but you can use more than one from the same category if you'd like). All stock/textures you are using outside of the bank must be legit.
Make sure you read each stock artists' rules! This is a must. Also, always give proper credit and notify of usage. Please remember to do this, or the entry will not be accepted.
There will be 3 different categories: beginner, intermediate, and advanced (when submitting your entry or entries via note,

But now it has finally went public: DeviantArt mentions!
So what does this mean for us, as users?
While you can change settings in your user panel, per default we all get mentioned when someone lists our name in a journal. So there will be no more talking about us behind our back. But on the positive side; you will be mentioned of all the people naming you in journals, or admiring your artwork
Spread the positivity!
Now we know this, let's all take a few minutes to let some people know we admire them or their artwork.
Comment in the comment section, with the people you admire most. Either for their art or their personality.

UPDATE: ONE WEEK EXTENSION FOR THIS CONTEST. Entries will now be due on November 7th 2013 11:59PM PST

What inspires you to create? I often ponder this question while I browse deviantart. Many deviants I have spoken to have mentioned that music was a big influence with their artwork. This lead me to the idea for a contest
Please note this contest is not just for the members at ArtisticAnimals It's just being cross posted to get more exposure. I hope you all don't mind.
The theme of the contest is to create an artwork inspired by a song of your choosing, and also to let us know how/why you got inspired from that song in the description box.

Tuesday Tip: A guide to Pricing ArtHi~! Its Goth-Kath here. Inspired by a question send to us at Rising-Artists for our advice column I wrote this , hopefully, helpful guide to Pricing Your Art.Tuesday Tip: A guide to Pricing Art2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I want to apologize up front for any and all spelling/ grammatical mistakes. English is not my first language and I normally get it checked but there wasn't any time now. Sorry.
(Don't worry Kath, ya Warchief's got ya back~)
So with that said. Lets jump into it~! Whether you have been doing commissions for years, work as a professional artist or are just starting out, it might be good to give this journal a read.
We all know that pricing art is tricky and often difficult because we do not only price work rationally, but also emotionally. Many artists cope with self-esteem issues when it comes to their art, and start selling it for way less than its worth. This is actually a bad thing, when many artists undersell their work, it will hurt the general art economy. Artists who dare ask for more will be confronted w
Eleven.. Cover Contest!Eleven.. Cover Contest!5 days ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So, for as long as I can remember I've had access to the most incredible range of books, from novels, tall tales and everything in between; all of those I've read (and I'm sure you all agree) it's most frequently their covers you immediately think of when you hear their titles. It goes without saying that a picture tells a thousands words, and cover art, for that specific reason has to grab the reader by the eyeballs and hold their attention right through to the very last page in a yummy, captivating smorgasbord of plot teasers, incredible characters and dreamy (or dystopian) landscapes. Essentially, book cover p0rn
Visiting bookshops used to be as much about the cover art as it was about the text on the pages, which is why these days seeing the dozens of dreary, completely plain covers which do absolutely NOTHING to sell the book leaves me a little cold. Further I just can't understand why publishers are going in this direction.
