What is a Daily Deviation?
The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
The staff/volunteer members responsible for selecting submissions for the daily feature often are open to suggestions and individual community members may direct their attention by noting the appropriate Community Volunteer or staff member with a direct link to the deviation which you are suggesting and a brief description about why you think the work in question should be featured.
How To Suggest a Daily Deviation:

Square Enix - I applied a couple of years ago.Here's a little personal story for my art friends.Square Enix - I applied a couple of years ago.1 month ago in Personal More Like This
About 3 years ago now I applied on a whim for a position to join the Square Enix Visual Works team in Japan. I expected not to hear anything back. I applied with a nice letter, a link to my folio and a 'top secret' link to copious amounts of NDA work.
I was blown away to get a personal response about 2 or 3 days later from one of the Art Directors on the team.
It was very blunt and very straight forward. He told me that I had a very unique style and that my artwork was great, He loved the heavy, solid feel and saturated colors but he had reservations about how far I could push it towards realtime cinematic work. The exact words he used to describe it was " Imagine an offline rendered character that we see today, we need to see that, modelled and textured in a stylised, fantastical final fantasy way but for use in realtime applications." He went further on to say "The stylisation is in design choices, not materials, which are to be very

Costume ContestHello, hello, hello! Now a while back I thought of having a costume contest for Halloween, but as I am busy and forgetful I never got around to putting it up. But it works out now! Mainly because I couldn't think of a Thanksgiving themed contest anyways. So! Here's the deal. Draw, Flash, Photoshop, or in some matter of artwork put your OC into a costume.

The day has finally come…
Oh yeah; LMS HAS arrived in our warehouse (along with the promised prints) and shipping will begin this coming Monday. You have all been so incredibly patient (well; 99% of you and we can’t thank you enough for that. That said, a number of you have during the waiting period sent us individual emails with change-of-address-notifications.
Given the more-than-expected time that has passed and to really make sure that nothing has slipped through the cracks here, please respond to this final email and confirm shipping address.
We promise, it’s the last time we make you jump through this hoop and, in return for staying with us on this long and arduous journey, we have decided to add yet another print (in addition to the promised one). Dan will also sign each one of them, by the way.

3D Printing with Bees3D Printing with Bees4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
How awesome is this? Dewar's (the whiskey brand) created an ad campaign that used bees as a "3D printer" ...or as they called it "3-B printing." They created shells of the sculpture they wanted to create and let 80,000 bees loose inside of it. Over time, the bees created beautiful honeycomb sculptures.
Nice work Dewar's and the agencies behind the campaign, Sid Lee New York and The Ebeling Group!

16,000 Points or 200.00 dollars (FANTASY CONTEST)Realm-of-Fantasy is helping promote this contest, though we are not hosting it.16,000 Points or 200.00 dollars (FANTASY CONTEST)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This contest is being held by:
Full blog and details found here: http://dreamorchid78.deviantart.com/journal/Back-with-a-bang-and-CONTEST-303007033
Remember deadline is July 18th so almost one month away.
The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game.

I haven't done a formal update like this since the middle of April. The reason I was delaying for so long is because I was waiting for word on a certain announcement that was supposed to happen in May. It hasn't happened yet due to some delays out of my control, but I've been working my ass off in the meantime. I have a new site, for instance! Engineered by Marc Swint.
Been doing some freelance gigs here and there, as per the usual. I finished two more episodes of Game Boys for Brad Jones, "The Camping Trip" and "Carter's Alley" as well as a

The semi-finalists in both of the Digital and Traditional categories presented a wide variety of approaches and techniques all inspired by the new Dodge Dart. The three winners for Digital and Traditional were selected after much deliberation and consideration. They will soon be on display in the lobby of the Dodge-Chrysler headquarters.Dodge Dart Contest Winners2 years ago in Official deviantART Contests More Like This

WIPS/Sherlock Idk??Lol I keep getting birthday messages, so I think if I get that birthday thing off my front page, then maybe they'll die down. (￣ω￣; )WIPS/Sherlock Idk??1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Here, have some WIPs.
Also, I finally watched Sherlock yesterday/today. I'm on the last ep now. ;_;
The fandom is a little scary… and I'm used to Sherlock as more of a scruffy man, less pretty boy (because I've seen the films with RDJ), and I also think that look suits his character more. So I'm not a huge huge fan of Cumberbatch. I feel like I'm looking at a Hipster Holmes. Still good though.
Not bad. Just… different.
I think I enjoy this Watson more than the films too, he's less tsundere, hahahahahahaha /shot
I also went into it expecting it to not be… modernized. So that caught me by surprise.
Other than that, good. ^0^ Well written, interest, deep, solid 8/10~
Maybe I'll do some fanart. But I don't think my art really fits it well. I'll give it a go, though!
Ok, have a good day!!! >v
TOME Episode 10 and Soundtrack RELEASED!!Phew, made it...TOME Episode 10 and Soundtrack RELEASED!!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Finally released TOME Episode 10, the season finale, to the official website this week. It was a super nerve-wracking experience I've never felt before with putting out cartoons I've worked on. This Episode, more than any other in the series, was extremely personal for me. I likened the feeling of uploading it to the type of vulnerability you'd feel if you were naked in front of a giant crowd of people, filled with all your peers and colleagues...yeah, it was THAT kind of nerve-wracking. Nevertheless, I made it and it was worth it.
So with that said, the next thing I wanna do is thank everybody; everyone who worked on the show these past 10 Episodes and made it happen, to everyone who watched the show and stuck with me. You're all a LOT more than I deserve and I hope at the very least I delivered something that was enjoyable and of quality. It was a rough ride the last two years doing

As the title says, it's a design contest
Here all the info
-Entries: how many you want.
-You can use a lineart.
-I'd prefer if you don't use any wolf/fox maker.
I really like light and dark brown, grey, black and white. I'd love to see a white wolf (not completely white, but with something grey, or brown...the important thing is that its colors remind snow and ice), and a black one.
Of course, not just those two, but also brown (I love them!), grey and colorful wolves and foxes. Yeah, also foxes!
I love natural design, so please no green or blue!
As you can see in my gallery, my characters have semi-simple designs: I don't really like strips and spots, 'cause they don't look realistic on a wolf. For foxes, spots are ok.
I'm searching something new, an unique design. Try to

Long before I ever thought that making it out here was at all possible, I looked up to these artists who're the core and spirit of Blizzard's art and essence - and to be ranked among them now is a huge honor - especially on this, as their 10th anniversary!
Thanks to René 'Twincruiser' Koiter for setting the whole gallery up, and of course to Samwise, the original 1st Son, and still the burning heart of Blizzard's art and soul.
