Printable GiftsGreetings, everyone.Printable Gifts2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I would like to do something in the coming months, and I could use some help if you're interested. It involves Project Wishlist. Prints make a wonderful gift - it's awesome opening your mail and finding one there. So this would be a great way to brighten the holidays.
So, if you are interested, your help would be greatly appreciated. Help could come in the form of point donations or by simply spreading the word. I'd love to get this project off the ground a bit (it's been dormant for some time).
So far there is no set number of prints that I'd like to purchase since the price range varies. I'm leaning toward 20, but it may be less, it may be more. There are different factors to depend on.
The deviants will most likely be selected randomly, but suggestions may also be taken.
Tentative deadline will be around mid-December.
Thank you for r
LeechesHere's an average summary of a private message that I receive on a weekly basis:Leeches2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I just came by your profile and saw your art, and was very impressed. I think you have a very nice art style. Now I'm working on this project. It's called <project>. It's an awesome story about <subject>. I'm currently writing the script for it, but I'm planning to make a visual novel. I can't tell too much about the story, since I don't want it to be copied, but it's going to be really cool. The point is; I need illustrators. I'm an excellent writer, but I can't do illustration at all. And therefore, I wanted to ask for your help. I need about 60 pages illustrated and colored. Would you work together with me on this one? I don't have any money to spend, as I'm not an established writer yet. But when the visual novel gets published, you can get a percentage of my profit.
With kind regards,
Well... let me translate this for you.

Protect Your WorkFor many artists, art theft is a frustrating reality. No matter how we watermark, logo, or constrain the resolution of our work, there are instances where artwork will be reposted, ripped, or used for commercial gain without credit or compensation. For some, this can be almost flattering, to know that there are those that like your work enough to steal it. But, the fact still remains, that your work has been used without permission, and for no gain of your own.Protect Your Work1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I have been a photographer for four years now, and throughout that time I am always learning. Part of that education is around copyright, and how to protect my work. The collage above is a brief representation of some of the ways my photography has been stolen. Some were edited without permission, event advertisements, included in a calendar, manipulated to advertise jewelry, sold on canvas, for promoting a cosmetic brand, or even for music videos.

Happy holidays everyone! I'll be doing a Grandma Thunderpants goodie bag giveaway for New Years. For Christmas, I decided to give a gift that keeps on giving!

- 1 pack of Premo Translucent
- A basic clay sculpting tool (the purple thing!)
- Set of findings (lobster clasp, eye/headpins, jump rings, earring hooks.)
- 5 feet of silver chain

CONTEST THEME: Twisted Fairytales
100 given to InkyRose for suggesting this theme.
We hate 'em but we must use 'em!
You must be a member of OC-Challenge to participate in this challenge! Joining the group is free, of course.
Create a deviation with your original character (OC) depicting a somewhat twisted fairy tale (no fan art or fan characters).
As the title itself implies, the artwork must be based on a fairy tale but you must be able to "twist" it in such a way that the artwork shows a different side of the fairy tale, though the original fairy tale story itself should remain visible in some way.
For this challenge, ONLY the following fairy tales can be used:

Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)This is not a rumor!Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was officially announced that there will be a BRAND NEW Sailormoon Anime in Summer 2013! The original Japanese VAs for Moon and Tuxy seem to be reprising their roles (based on the conversation in the event). We don't have much more detail, a letter from Naoko said she hopes we like the new series and she's happy to be making it. She said she's overwhelmed at the support the series still has and it makes her happy. She didn't think she could do something new but now she's happy she can bring them back!
They said the audience is intended to be the original fans of the show. It will be like a "powered up" of the original story, aimed at the good girls (and boys!) who grew up with the show. TOEI is doing it.
There was something in the announcement about it being released worldwide but we don't know the details. We do not know what this means as far as a possible English dub/sub. We don't yet know when/how this will reach a US market.

Draw YOUR Original Character contest
Contest deadline: 30th April,2014
A little explanation of the subject:
The subject of this contest is about YOUR Original Character.
Choose your beloved one of your Original Characters (in case you have more than one) and draw it in a FULL BODY view, the front view is enough. (Pose may be dynamic, not necessarily static as the example)
This contest allows media such as:
Digital paintings ONLY
No traditional (I don't know how to say it =_= ) or photomanips or 3D, etc.
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
10 Reasons You Shouldn't Quit ArtYou know i keep my journals short, so i'll jump right to it.10 Reasons You Shouldn't Quit Art2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1. When you get an idea for a character, or an illustration or a comic, you can just draw it. You don't have to browse and see if anyone else drew it already, or commission other artists to do it.
2. If you get really good at art, your favorite artist might watch you back.
3. You might eventually get paid for it.
4. Because even if there's tons of art out there, and many great artists, no one, and i mean NO ONE can ever draw what you draw. There can be similar ideas, but only you can bring your particular flavor of art to life.
5. The awesome comments. The better you get at art, the more awesome and elaborate comments you get. Who doesn't want to get praised?
6. Art trades with really good artists!
7. Because quitting is lame.
8. Because when IRL people ask you what you do and you say you're an artist, you get the most interesting reactions. It never gets old.
9. Because you get to browse the internet a

Don't worry about your age. Do not get discouraged by those that are younger than you and better. Some people start art when they are 6 years old and are prodigy's at age 16, others make a rather late or slow start. It doesn't matter if you're 10 or 80 years old. You're never too old to learn something new, and you're never too old to do something you enjoy.
Everybody has potential. Even the greatest masters in art started out as beginners. It just takes a lot of time and persistence.
Don't be afraid to fail. Most masters have failed more times than any beginner even tried.
We only see the best from other people, and compare it with our own average. For every amazing painting a good artist puts online, he probably made 100 failed sketches. Sketches you'll never see and you'll never know o
Please Think Before you Write Ok, so just throwing this out there, perhaps this will be an unpopular view, but I don't think I'm being unreasonable.Please Think Before you Write2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'd just like to mention publicly, that I, as well as artists in general, are not art vending machines.
You don't type suggestions in, and then have a slot where artwork comes out for free .
Important to Note: I am not addressing any individual in particular. If you think this is about *you* specifically ( whoever you are)- don't. This about the private notes I get, with alarming volume, where people feel they can simply request artwork from me for free. I get a *lot* of these. Which prompted me to post something about it. I usually just ignore them, or, if I feel particularly polite that day, I send them a note back saying I don't do requests.
But they never stop o_O. And it's not that I mind suggestions in comments under artwork, such as: "Oh, I hope one day you will paint _________." or, "

EncouragementWhen I started out on DeviantArt, I used to be one of those artists that thought I could never do art properly.Encouragement1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'll start saying that I spend most of my childhood getting only little encouragement.
My parents were, like many other parents, convinced that art wasn't that much of a useful skill since it's nearly impossible to earn money with -- and would've liked it if I spend my time doing something more useful instead. At school I was that pathetic kid without friends. Creative, yet very introverted. The one that gets bullied in the schoolyard. Needless to say; it was rare to find people saying something nice about me, and it was even more rare to find someone actually encouraging me.
Back then, I used to believe that I was alone. I initially signed up to DeviantArt to find people with similar interests. But it happened to change my mind along the way. When I came into contact with other artists, I came to realize that there were in fact many people just like me. People th
