Have you ever wandered through the Literature Gallery here on dA and wondered what the Characters & Settings sub category was for? Then ask no more. It should almost be obvious what goes in here, but let's play dumb for a minute.
The Characters & Settings gallery is NOT for your prose, poetry or scripts. Finished stories or poems don't belong here. They belong in their own categories. Here, we should find character information. Well what is character information:
Characters Sheets. Any character sheet that you've completed for your character(s) and would like to share. Blank sheets should be submitted to the Resources & Stocks > Tutorials > Writing gallery.Character Profiles or Biographies. You wrote a short description or history for your character but it won't be included in the final cut of your story.

Today I'm introducing the Elements And Principles of Design. Some of you are on top of the game and aleady know how to use the Elements with the Principles, but bare with me. I may show you some thing that you do not know.
I wrote a version of this In 2011, and I've changed it up some hoping this version will help you understand how to create more dynamic deviations..
This tutorial is meant for Novice and Beginning Photomanipulators, but, of course, it's here to give information that even the Intermediate and Advance deviant to learn something that they did not know.
Elements and Principles of Design
Question: What is meant by the Elements and Principles of Design?
Answer: Elements are the parts of a design, and the Principles are ways to use the parts..
All art is comprised of the Elements being arranged following the rules set by the Principles.
Ready, Set, NaNo!So it's that time of the year again and we're all racing around trying to get our bits together for NaNoWriMo. OR, we're laughing at the people running around trying to get all their bits together for NaNo. In the past, I've written articles on what NaNo is and how to prepare for it. This isn't one of those articles. Well, not entirely. Let's start with the glaringly obvious.Ready, Set, NaNo!2 weeks ago in Literature Features More Like This
What's the point of NaNo?
If you answered "To write a 50k Word Count Novel in a month's time," you're wrong. NaNo is about conditioning writers to write regularly, keep those creative juices flowing and to work under pressure. November is a busy month. Students are back in school. Parents are dealing with said students. In the United States, we have Thanksgiving and of course everyone is getting ready for Christmas. Add in clearing 1,667 words a day and we're talking about some major pressure. But that's the poi

A probable solution to commission chargebacks.Artists who create commissions know one caveat with accepting PayPal: their Seller Protection doesn't cover services, so they can and will be SOL if the buyer decides to dispute the transaction. While Buyer Protection doesn't cover services either, PayPal is notorious for ruling in the favor of the buyer, so the seller needs to look into other ways of protecting themselves.A probable solution to commission chargebacks.7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Which leads to our discussion here, of how we can leverage Seller Protection to ensure scamming buyers can't run off with the money after the service is completed -- by converting your commission service into a tangible product.
Seller Protection covers tangible products that can be shipped to the buyer, and by making a commission, you can take advantage of this by printing out your commission and mailing it to them. Right there, you have a tangible, physical item that is mailed to the buyer, and thus is covered by Seller Protection.
Adjust your commission information and terms of service to indicate the buyer is pu

1. One of the best ways to write about a character is to have a handy reference sheet on them out. Fill this out so if you ever forget about something or are in a jam, you can refer to this:
2. Write about your character's ideal perfect lover. Is he or she their exact opposite? Are they just your character's best friend on a more romantic point of view? Or are they even of the same gender? Get thinking!
3. Think about how your character may react differently if they lives in a place like New York City as oppose to a place like London. Use places that you have been to because the best reference in fictional

Ancient Egyptian Art and MythologyAuthor's NoteAncient Egyptian Art and Mythology10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Ancient Egypt was a HUGE society with a rich culture and a highly developed religion. Egypt is one of the most famous ancient cultures because of its unique funerary practices and its incredible architectural feats. Now some of you are reading this because you're interested in Ancient Egyptian art and others of you are (like me) take an art history course and reading this to help study. I will be tailoring this journal for those taking an art history course but no one wants to be bogged down with bland information so I'll try to keep this interesting (not that it's hard because it's ANCIENT EGYPT!)
Note that dates aren't terribly important just make sure you are in the right century
What you really need to know
The entire period of Ancient Egypt lasted from 3500 BCE to 1070 BCE and was broken into four periods: the Predynastic and early dynastic periods (which we are

I see many people posting how they make no money on their prints through DeviantArt.
To me, it just seems like all you need is a lesson in business.
First, before you do anything, realize what our "Target Audience" is.
Do you draw anime? Or do you take pictures of cute animals? Or are you into realism? Let's face it, you aren't going to find very many older people who enjoy fine art on the internet. Try and figure out what age group your work appeals to.
Second, use DeviantArt as your "Warehouse"
DeviantArt is great. You can showcase your products and then ship them to people without you doing anything. However it is an Art Community. In DeviantArt, you work is only shown to other artists, to get more money you have to use DeviantArt as your Warehouse. It will supply the customer, but you need to bring the customer to the site.
Deviantart is fairly appealing, but lets face it, man

You know the type: the writer who submits something new everyday, who floods your inbox with new poems and prose pieces that they somehow had time to write since the last time you logged in to dA. How do they do it? Are there more than 24 hours in their day? Do they have chunks of spare time that you don't? Super discipline? Magic powers?
It may seem like a strange and mystical phenomenon, but believe it or not, that person is probably just as busy as you are. Even more unbelievable: you can become that person, too. It doesn't take magic powers or a high tolerance to lack of sleep or loads of spare time, but it does take discipline. Ready? Okay.
Actually, not quite ready yet. You know when you're really on a roll, when you're writing and writing and suddenly... you stop to check Facebook? Yeah. Whether it be Facebook or email or the refrigerator or deviantART, we want to get rid of distractions. Move to a distraction-free ar
