Is your piece a vector, vexel or mixed media?First of all; don't create art to make it go in a certain category - if you feel the need to reach outside the rules, do so - but please don't try to sneak it in. This is a group for vector and vexels, if your piece isn't one, we won't upload it to the gallery - it isn't because your piece isn't "worthy" or "good enough" or because we want to punish youIs your piece a vector, vexel or mixed media?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you might have gotten a message on your submissions where one of us asks you to explain a certain part of your piece or what program(s) you used. We hope to stop doing that - we would rather be able to accept all the submissions and count on you guys to know what your piece is.
So here it is - the steps to figuring out where your piece goes (in our gallery, but also when you upload it to dA and need to choose a category)
What program did you use?
If you are using a program capable of making vector-layers and resizing these infinit, your work is a vector so far. If you merge the vector-layers (or s

Robert Evans (PSAS), a longtime member of the deviantART community, has succeeded in making a radical artistic statement about turning artists' visions into actual realities.
Robert's pathway to actualization of his vision was facilitated by forward-thinking executives at Lexus who reached out to the creative cutting edge, to deviantART artists, for new revolutionary design ideas for the production of their 2014 Lexus IS. The Lexus IS Design Contest was born and dA's Robert Evans has come away with the prize: experiencing having his personal artistic conceptualization of how an automobile should look and roll become a real world reality. As Grand Prize Winner, the new Lexus built to Robert's design was debuted at the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas before 60,000 US and international buyers and then featured at the Los Angeles Auto Show before 12,000 industry decision-makers and 4,000 media correspondents from 50 countries.

Be Careful of Search Engines and CopyrightsEDIT: Hey everyone, I've noticed that people are reacting a little strongly to this, as in it's not a "hate" article, it's about educating people who don't know how the searches work and thus inadvertently take things without realising that it might be breaking copyright. I'm not saying these people are "evil" are anything derogatory, I'm just saying that some people are genuinely unaware of how they work and can make mistakes and assumptions if things aren't explained. Please try to understand that some people are just not familiar with all aspects of the internet and don't mean to take work without considering copyright.Be Careful of Search Engines and Copyrights1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Here is some additional advice from a commenter:
"Once on the Image search page enter your search...once it has come up ...
On the top right side of the pages there is an "option gear" symbol - Hit that and pick Advanced Search. On the Advanced Search page you can limit your search in a variety of ways.... At the very bottom of the page is the "usage rights" op

Liam Sharp was and is one of the most sought after comic artists in the business. After bursting on the scene by drawing the bestselling Marvel UK title of all time, Death Head II, he was back in America illustrating top line comics like Superman, Batman and Spiderman as well as special projects for people like Stan Winston. For anyone unfamiliar with his amazing work, his galleries can be found on deviantART. I recently got lost for an entire day perusing a single file of his Conan illustrations.

Ladies and Gentlemen
After almost 18 months, we're finally proud to announce
The Grand release of Omnimo 6.0.
And likely, the last major update
In the lifecycle of this project.
Life's circumstances have a tendency to change rapidly, and indeed, both of us (me and Xyrfo) had experienced rather significant changes which kept us from activelly working on this project. We started it as we were teenagers, but we've grown up and our new lives have begun. Perhaps Omnimo is a tribute to this transition; a hobbyist project that had become more serious with every release. We put our faith in the hope that our efforts were not in vain, and that the long wait had been worth it.
In our previous releases, we hesitated making the changelog out of fear that we won't cover everything that we've worked on. Incidentally, it's also the case for Omnimo 6.0 - we've improved it so much, I

So Sunday morning, after arriving the previous night from 4 consecutive gigs in other states, I made it to at the tiny airport in my home city of Shreveport LA to find that (of course) it was overbooked! This was a wonderful start to my already convoluted journey to my final destination – Chengdu, Sichuan, China – that involved 4 flights, 4 bus rides, and countless taxis and subway exchanges.
Well I rescheduled first leg of the trip within enough time to make my second flight out of Atlanta, GA without messing up any of my other flights...miraculous!
After a quick (and I mean very quick) layover, I boarded my first ever double-decker flight!
The routing of these flights, by the way, made absolutely NO sense whatsoever lol I went from Shreveport,

I did not mention games like Knuckles Chaotix, etc. because I didn't play them, or I don't know much about them.

Since reading about Yuji Naka's departure from Sega, I felt sad that I would not be able to see Sonic continue to pervade in the mainstream market. At the same time, though, it's better this way. Sonic's name has been besmirched throughout his entire mascot history with so many bad sequels during his transition from the classic era to the more modern era. However, even after all he's been through up until Naka's
Page Views - What Do They Really Mean?Page ViewsPage Views - What Do They Really Mean?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Page views are a huge talk on deviantART. For many they represent who they follow, who they talk with, and even who they are willing to be friends with.
As of January 5, 2011, I removed viewing page views from my page and on others.
I replaced it with a message that said:
"Page Views - You may notice that I don't view page views. Not only was my page view count once destroyed by a bot, but I have come to realize page views should not represent the face of a deviant. Who they are as a person and an artist should.
As of January 5, 2011, I will no longer be paying attention to my own page views, and in addition I have vowed not to follow deviants based on page views, but instead based on ability and personality.
At that point I had 315,730 Page Views.
But I thought I would take this as a chance to write a little something about page views as well.
Earlier in the day, I spoke to PurpelBlur, and he told me:

Many people would like to make use of the Premium Membership features of dA, but of course not everyone is able to reserve some bucks for this, or to use them online. Thankfully, deviantART has a wonderful community where many people are willing to help each other out. One way to get a Premium Membership eventhough you cannot pay, is to participate in contests where you can win premium memberships, or points to pay for them - this list will hopefully help you find some to enter.

Manga and Anime vs. Fan Art
Fan art includes those artworks that are based on or contain material such as characters, settings, concepts or universes in general that are copyrighted to someone else other than the artist creating said Fan artwork. According to aunjuli "Fan Art is a way to show appreciation for someone else's creation.The root of it all is love, gratitude, and the desire to create more than what was originally handed to you."
Fan Art comes in many styles, including but not limitted to Manga & Anime.Manga, on the other side, is a defined style of art with very characteristic traits to it. It's also referred to sequentia
