A Special Request... "Hollowgaze...?"A Special Request...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fallemdreams approached his brother slowly and shyly in the medicine den. It has been moons since Fallendreams has spoke to Hollowgaze. All he saw Hollowgaze do was work, work and work. Fallendreams looked in the medicine den, turning his head from left to right he then caught his gaze of his older brother. Hollowgaze was staring at him with his emerald eyes which shone in the Moonlight peeking through the den. Hollowgaze was shivering, seeing the sight of hus monstrous brother. What would he want with him? After all these moons, did he want to abuse him or something worse.
"W-what is i-it Fallen..." Hollowgaze lowered his pose until his body slumped on the cold floor. He curled his tail around his leg and gulped. Fallendreams sighed lightly, seeing his petrified brother. The warrior sat down where he was as he looked at Hollowgaze.
"I....I have a request..." He spoke lightly and harmlessly to his brother, turning his head away embarr

But now it has finally went public: DeviantArt mentions!
So what does this mean for us, as users?
While you can change settings in your user panel, per default we all get mentioned when someone lists our name in a journal. So there will be no more talking about us behind our back. But on the positive side; you will be mentioned of all the people naming you in journals, or admiring your artwork
Spread the positivity!
Now we know this, let's all take a few minutes to let some people know we admire them or their artwork.
Comment in the comment section, with the people you admire most. Either for their art or their personality.

Just something I stumbled upon today"Admit it. You aren't like them. You're not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the "normal people" as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like "Have a nice day" and "Weather's awful today, eh?", you yearn inside to say forbidden things like "Tell me something that makes you cry" or "What do you think deja vu is for?". Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts.

Iiiiit's contest time! All original literature welcome.
This is a speculative fiction contest—the technology requirement could cover steampunk, 'John Carter,' 'The Windup Girl,' 'Watchmen,' '2001: A Space Odyssey' or about anything else you can think of. The one thing that isn't permissible is magic.
That was a joke.
Your story must center around the development of a relationship between two entities.

The relationship must be noticeably changed at the end.Distance/death don't count if they're still besties or whatever.I don't mean changed personalities. I mean a changed relationship.

suggesting DD's (daily deviations)Edit on Sept 3, 2013: I changed this article a bit after I had a friendly chat with some of the (former) volunteers and senior members of the website. I hope the details help you in making even better submissionssuggesting DD's (daily deviations)2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Everybody on DeviantArt seems to know about the Daily Deviations, or DD's. The handful of artworks that makes it to the frontpage every day. The artworks that are shown at the bottom of the site all day long, and get loads of exposure. I guess they're the wet dream for many people on DA.
DD's are usually a reason for discussion. I can't even begin to count the topics on the forums that are about why some deviations are chosen over others, and how the quality of those deviations keep declining year after year. Not many people know, however, that's it's not entirely up to the staff which works are picked. And that we can have our own vote on this.
So I can have an influence

THREE TIPS FOR DRAWING CARSYou know that green ellipse tool that you bought in art school? Do you know how to use it for something other than oval shapes? Do you know what those "cross-hair" marks are for? And do you know how to use it for technically correct perspective drawings?THREE TIPS FOR DRAWING CARS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
TOO many comics artists don't, and it's driving me crazy. So instead of starting a blog that starts showing examples and naming names, I figured it was better to make a quick tutorial. And this isn't just for cars but also for guns, fire hydrants, and millions of other machined objects found in comics.
If you go through this and you're still stuck, please don't write to me. I'm happy to show you at a convention to make it clearer, but within a blog this is the best I can do. Check out "Perspective for Comic Artists by David Chelsea" for more.
Cars are a whole lot easier to draw if you know how to properly use perspective and ellipses. The more familiar you are with the math, the more fun it is to draw cars. Once I figured out th

[GUIA] Commission, Trade, Gift, Collab e Request!Ciao galera! :iconaboishappyplz:[GUIA] Commission, Trade, Gift, Collab e Request!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Estou aqui para fazer um guia rápido de comission, trade, gift, collab e request. Provavelmente você já deve ter visto alguma dessas palavras pelo Deviant e se você ainda não sabe o que são, vai saber agora.
Vamos preste atenção:
COMMISSION -> Significa comissão. É quando você realiza um trabalho sobre encomenda para alguém e este paga a você. Ou seja: Alguém te pede para fazer uma arte em troca de dinheiro ou points, o dinheiro virtual usado no DeviantArt. Existem muitas pessoas que praticam commissions no DA. Caso você esteja interessado em se disponibilizar para fazer commissions, lembre-se de deixar claro o preço do seu trabalho. O mais recomendado é que você faça uma tabela com um exemplo de uma obra já pronta e o preço ao lado de uma obra que você faria com aquelas características. Caso você esteja disposto a fazer rascunhos ou só lineart ou cores chapadas ou sem fundo apenas ou todo completo com fundo, deixe isso bem claro e os pre
Switzerland x Pregnant! Reader: It Is Perfect!You stood wide-eyed in front of the bathroom mirror, frozen. A pregnancy test in your hand, that showed a positive sign of pregnancy. You've been feeling sick for days and you were thinking if you are just sick or something but the thing in your hand showed something different, YOU ARE PREGNANT WITH VASH ZWINGLI'S CHILD. You let out a little scream of shock, though Lili still heard it and came rushing to your aid. She came to your side, worry and concern obvious in her cute emerald eyes.Switzerland x Pregnant! Reader: It Is Perfect!3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
"What's wrong, _____?" She asked you, words laced with worry.
You handed her the pregnancy test. She took it and stared at it. You stood there, wondering what reaction she would have. Silence was in the air that you could even hear a pin drop. Suddenly, a wide smile was on her cute face and eyes filled with happiness. You looked at her, confused about her reaction. She then looked at you, her smile still on her face.
"Lili-" You spoke but got cut off by her.
"Yay! I'm gonna be an aunt soon!

Do's and don'ts for flawless interactionNot much to say about this.Do's and don'ts for flawless interaction2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Just some basic tips and tricks for flawless interaction on DeviantArt
Watch people when you honestly find them interesting.
Watch your friends, even if they don't have amazing art. It helps you stay updated with their progress.
Watch groups. They'll offer you a fine selection of art you're interested in, and will help you discover new (interesting) artists.
Check the faves of people you watch. As you like their work, you might have similar tastes in art. Checking their faves might help you find cool art.
Recommend art from people that you watch for a Daily Deviation (if good art, of course).
Uncheck all boxes when watching. There's nothing more disappointing than an empty watch.
DGM Notes: Exorcist Training + Innocence StrengthThis is a compilation of my notes on the canon exorcists' syncro rates, stages, and training experience and how those relate to each other. I decided to share them since they're really useful for those developing their DGM fan characters' Innocence details and training experience background. After all, the easiest way to figure out if your fan character is overpowered or underpowered is by comparing them with canon c:DGM Notes: Exorcist Training + Innocence Strength9 months ago in Personal More Like This

My Daily Deviation HighlightsMy Daily Deviation Highlights5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I was tagged by the lovely Andorada to take part at this breath-taking Community Volunteer Project "My Daily Deviation Highlights".
The community encourages us to walk through the "Daily Deviation" page to search for our personal highlights. So, here are my highlights, especially limited to year 2015.
I tried to cataloge the works into different groups like photography, crafts. Surely some topics are overlapping, so there could be fan art also in traditional art, photography and craft and not only specifically in fan art.
I had a lot of fun with my search

Origional drawing give awayHello everyone~!Origional drawing give away3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I did this give away with points and all but only one person came to claim their prize. I had the intention of just letting each one know that they had won something but I think they should have thought about it themselfs. However I do think that I still have to do something because I had promised points.
Therefor I shall give away ONE Origional drawing with whatever you like on it and I will also SHIP it to you no matter where you live.
Now the dearest NijineMarinda cannot participate because she was the one who claimed her prize (Sorry that it takes so long but I promise that it wil be finished soon )
So if you want to participate simply fav this journal.
I will announce the result at the 17th of August so one week from now. you can enter until 16th of August 23:59 Dutch time standards.
That will be it ^^

Why now? Well... I’ve just come back from Lucca Comics & Games - the best and biggest comics, games and cosplay fair we have in Italy. It reminds me when I was there last year and I had a bad car accident on my way back home. I don’t know how to describe it correctly in english.. my car got hit by a very big jeep from behind, the thrust was so intense it made my car tip over and land on the car in front of me, then rebounded several times on the road crashing sides of the car and the roof of my (at this point destroyed) vehicle. Fortunately I didn’t get any serious injuries, but I had to rest in bed for one month and for four months I have been away from fairs and events …
