REMINDER AND PRIZE UPDATE
Enter if you dare . . .
Ombre-De-Nuit is a high-level "dark" digital group here on dA. The administrators of the group are darkly pleased to present you, our members, with our latest challenge: The Brothers Grimm meet Burton.
Your task, should you dare to undertake it, is to twist a Grimm Fairytale into a Burton-style Nightmare.
You can find examples of Grimm fairytales here. Some popular ones include Rapunzel, Hansel & Gretel, and Cinderella. You can choose one Grimm fairytale to twist; it's fine just to depict a scene of your choosing or make one up on your own. But, the fairytale should be at least somewhat recognizable, and it must have elements that are Burtonesque.
Think about what Burtonesque means. What is the undercurrent between Sweeney Todd, Beetl

Many times a friend or a deviant has said to me, "oh I could never fold origami, I'm not gifted that way", but it's just not true! As part of projecteducate's Artisan Crafts week, I'm going to show you how simple it is to find and fold something gorgeous and to present it well to your internet audience.
With just a little inspiration and a bit of patience, ANY one of us could fold something absolutely lovely. So what are you waiting for?? Let's get folding!
1) BE INSPIRED
First of all, you need to figure out what you want to fold. You need inspiration from looking at gorgeous origami, from admiring nature and the world around, or maybe it'll just hit you like a random lightning bolt. We are super privileged to have many experienced and skilful origamists on dA, many who create their own models from scratch. From persona

Cherry Biscuit CakeThis cake is rather easy to make and doesn't need much experience.Cherry Biscuit Cake3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But keep in mind when I am talking of cup I mean a real cup and not an unit for measurement!
Better start with a smaller cup if you are not sure how much dough you will get at the end.
It needs to fit into the baking sheet, otherwise it could end with a mess ;)
Mix the eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder and oil until you get a smooth dough. Blend the soda or sparkling water completely afterwards.
Add the dough to a fatted baking sheet and let it bake for about 25min at 170°C (air circulation enabled) until it gets a light tanning.
Bring the sour cherries with the juice of two jars to the boil. Keep the juice of the third jar for later.
Mix the custard powder with a bit of the cherry juice(until it is all liquid and there are no lumps left). Optionally you can add a bit of sugar as well. I never do though.
Once the cherries boil add the custard powder and let it all thicken.

Somehow, this silly page has hit 9 million views!
Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with. This site has opened up so many opportunities for me, and has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I've met in my life.
It's been a journey, and my interactions with the people here have taught me more than I can express.
Apart from that, one thing I absolutely did not ex

All entries should be submitted by May 29th 11:59pm Est/Std time. (US)
Hello my friends
Yeah i know it's been a long time you heard something from me or the other admins regarding the group. Originally this group was created to aid those who have trouble using photoshop. We asked a lot of advanced artists to share their knowledge or give useful tips, so we all could become better. But i think most of you do not need personal help with your work or need feedback.
For those who are interested in learning a quite simple way to achieve a painted look, i can recommend my tutorial i made recently. It's completely free of charge, i only want you to note me if you want to download the files. This technique is also useful to enhance the total look of your work.
Also for those you want to learn some new things, i can recommend to search youtube for tutorials about using gradient

Since there is a number of you that commented to say they liked the lenses but:

First time we wore our our Disney cosplays was for Toycon 2011:
The weekend after, a few of us got together to do a studio shoot because we were just excited, and I wanted to finally try out a pseudo movie poster photo treatment for cosplay photos. It was definitely a challenge. But it made me really happy to show my friends how the final images turned out.

I'm still a bit overwhelmed by the responses to my previous journal entry, but I will do my best to make proper replies to some of you soon. But to everyone Thank you all for constantly giving me reasons to be grateful.
I've got a bit of free time today before another Christmas party so I thought I'd post a holiday journal with miscellaneous moments from the past month or so. Thank you so much to Miss-It-Girl for extending my subscription so I can keep sharing these photos with you guys!
The holiday decor at home was a joy to look at and photograph.
I enjoyed the added details of these swirly twigs that make me think of Tim Burton landscapes.
After all these years, the sight of sparkling lights and shiny Christmas ornaments and even the smell of tinsel and synthetic trees gets me in the mood fo
