Contest! Win 2000 points or $20 and art (UPDATE)January 1 was the date of the contest to end, but have to change the date because I have no time for finishing prices in the nearest time D8 SO much came suddenly in the way like too much school work :C And because of that, I have some commissions and other owed art I must get done with after that. So the deadline is changed to 29 May! Do that sound good or if it should be some bit into June? For me it doesn't matter. After this, I will only be able to extend it once more if needed and then no more. Extended twice already but because of personal problems tough. o3o So if you still wanna join, you still have time!

SixWordStories Contest - Five 3-Month PMs to win!UPDATE: The contest ends in a couple of days so get your entries in if you want to participate! Please also make sure your entry is in our folder here!SixWordStories Contest - Five 3-Month PMs to win!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
It has been a long time since we have had a contest, but we have some
CEA Blog: Mature ContentHey guys, today I want to talk about Mature Content on deviantART and hopefully clear up some misconceptions that exist around it.

How the mature content filter works
All members over the age of 18 can choose to enable or disable the mature content filter to suit their needs. All members with a registered date of birth under the age of 18 have the mature content filter locked on and can not disable it. All logged out visitors have the mature content filter enabled and can not disable it.
The mature content filter is split in to two types, strict and warning. The strict filter is completely voluntary and prevents any deviant with the mature content filter on from accessing the work. The general or warning filter is the standard mature content tag and will remove the image from immediate view when browsing and place an warning page on the devi

It's 2013! The apocalypse? It didn't even put a dent in our world. That's not going to stop me from calling this planet "post-apocalyptic" now. It just makes it more fun. It's also the Year of the Snake. May these words bring you and your art good fortune in the days that follow.
Three years ago today, deviantART opened up groups to the public. #The-Art-of-Smoking was founded on that very day, and today's our anniversary. It's time to celebrate! And, since the world just keeps on ticking, it's time to take the world of art to the next level. Your art! Let's talk promotions...

I often see people saying the commission widget won't work
or saying they didn't receive and lost the points when taking commissions using it.
This is most likely NOT a bug!
When using the commission widget, the points you earn will be showing

Hint: This is also where you are able to convert
your points to money if you have Paypal ;>

10 Long Rock SongsI tend to like longer songs, especially of epic proportion as they let me get into groove that I just can’t get from a three minute production of some music nowadays. Maintaining a song for a length over ten minutes is a challenge that requires dedication, creativity, and a rediscovery within the song itself so that it is unique every time it is listened to.The few exceptional songs that exist in rock music are harder to come across and have an atmosphere all their own. In no particular order, here are ten of some of the best examples of rock songs exceeding ten minutes (excluding live versions for fairness).10 Long Rock Songs2 years ago in Personal More Like This

PE: Painting With A Limited Colour PaletteDigital ArtPE: Painting With A Limited Colour Palette2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Nowadays, digital art programmes give us an overwhelming amount of colours to choose from, which makes it tempting to go overboard.
Painting with a limited colour palette challenges you to think outside the box and find new, creative uses for colours. This article aims to help you with that, including tips on how to create a limited colour palette, how to approach painting with it, and an art feature.
About creating a colour palette:
In order to paint with a limited colour palette, you will first have to create said palette.
Here a few pointers for creating your own palette:
You can choose as little as two colours, but since we're talking about limited palettes, you should choose no more than five to start out with.There's a few simple tricks to ensure you get an unified colour palette, but that doesn't mean you absolutely have to use them. Your colours can be as crazy as you want. Knock yourself out.Having a mood in mind for your work will help you with pi

A little F.A.Q before we get started :iconjumpingla-plz:
How does this work?
Every month I'll give you a theme and you'll have to create a Manga/Anime styled entry according to it

I'm afraid not Only Original Characters and universes are allowed. Your Naruto based OC, for example, isn't elligible to enter or win.
Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
Nope. All entries must be made specifically for this contest, old artworks won't be accepted.
Alright! Now that we have the basics down, let's get into serious bussiness!

It feels like walking has become another chore
I don't think I can go on walking anymore
So please forgive me for these words, I know they're cliched to you
But life is tiring, my feet are getting sore
I wish that I could have a bit of time
To heal the ache that's growing stronger all the time
But I know time stops for nobody, let alone me
And so I go, inevitably
Whenever things are going rather happily
It turns out life is just playing a trick on me
It's slightly shameful to admit the truth, I end up in tears
And so begins the same old melancholy
I miss when life was just simplicity
And misery wasn't always chasing after me
It's pretty obvious now, I should've left my regret
But I held onto it so foolishly
Maybe I overreacted a bit, hasn't destroyed me yet, has it
But everything I desire is always just too far to get
Honestly, it's just me, brainlessly, so silly

Many of our accessories have been unilaterally deemed... unfit. So it seems they’ve been thrown out. Without my consent. So for the most part, the accessories available up to now have been discontinued.
I-It’s not all bad, though, really! We’re working on new accessories as we speak, with some help from a new addition to the tailor team.
In the mean time, I hope you’ll enjoy these items Chloe helped me whip up overnight! Not too shabby for such short notice, wouldn’t you say? Nothing celebrates the coming of spring like our family’s traditional techniques.
Oh, don’t worry about them being too flimsy. Our leaves are made to last. But you’d better get to them before Gnasher does! I have a feeling these will only be around for a limited time!

ESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMICESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMICESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMIC2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hi I’m Andrea Dotta: a Pro comic artist and animator and one year ago I had the insane idea of making a powerful webcomic to show my works to more people as possible. Now I’m in a positive development towards my goal. If you want to do a webcomic, always do your best as their are millions of webcomics on the internet.
In this article, I would like to share the things that I’ve learned this year so I hope you will get something from me.
IDEA: There are no bad ideas, there are only ideas that are not developed. To develop your idea, you need to be authentic - think of your real life experiences to give credibility to your story. If you need a sad story, think of a sad story in your life. If you want a happy story, think and say what i

Alright, my non-competitive underlings! Since you're not competing in the tournament, I'm gonna hafta ask little favours of you from time to time. Don't you worry much, they're nothing life-threatening. Not right NOW, anyway. Who knows what kinda missions I might send the more capable Corusites on in the future? Anyways, here's the few things I need you guys to do.
Number one! Did you guys know we got a daycare and nursery? For the baby Pokémon. And occasionally baby humans. Not many students get knocked up, I should say, but whatever. We got it if we need it. Well, it's kinda fallen into disarray. It looks more like a prison than a nursery! So we've set aside a budget for you guys to go spruce it up, make it actually look inviting to the little ones! Check out Severstal market for furniture, paint and any other kind of crap you deem fit to go in there. Have fun!

Good afternoon soon-to-be students. I am Lady Lyra Nightingale, the headmistress of this boarding school. I am also the leader of the region Lochesh. You may address me as Lady Nightingale.
Here at Nightingale Manor, we offer many classes that allow you to sharpen your skills as a Pokemon trainer, from "How to Use Your Surroundings to Your Advantage" or "Offensives Becoming Defenses". Oh, but don't think this will be easy. It's not. At all. We do not tolerate failure or weakness. And that's just what the classes offered beat out of you. It may be an extremely strict environment, but it will do wonders for your battle intelligence.
There are a couple of rules that are in place at the school. One: curfew is at eleven. Two: do not wander into the Forest of Fae unattended. And three: prove to the other factions that this faction is superior in every form - especiall

Idea for the contest - Create a fakemon from one of the egg designs below
Egg 1 -

Egg 3 -
You only need to do one egg, but you can do the other ones if you would like.
Only do one fakemon per egg please.
If you do more two or three eggs, keep your entries separate. You have to enter them in each egg entry separately. This will increase your chances of winning; however, you can only win once. (Ex. If you win for egg 1 and have an entry in egg 2, that entry will no longer be able to win.)
You can name them if you want to, but it is not required that you do. C: You can also choose what type you want them to be.

Announcement from Epicent City: The Tournament!Hello, and welcome to the Saros region! My name is Professor Ivory, but most people respectfully refer to me as the Pokemon Professor. Now I’m sure you won’t need me to explain the world of Pokemon, as you’ve likely known it for most of your life! So instead, allow me to introduce you to the land I and my friends call home.Announcement from Epicent City: The Tournament!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The region of Saros divides into six distinct provinces noted by their strongly varying climates. The pokemon vary between all 6 regions, seeming to culminate by their various types. And as the pokemon vary, so do the people who live alongside them! Within the regions, there are 6 guilds which are the center of power and influence among the people of each region! The 6 trainers who lead them have known each other since youth, and the guilds still carry such bonds.
In the center of the land is a bustling urban center known as Epicent City! It is here where I conduct my studies, on the 17 types of pokemon and how they adapt and interact with each
