Despite some too suggestive images on the front page and a chance you will meet a hater/troll, aren't we all here to breathe in some art, and create our own reflections?

Epilepsy Awareness Day March 26th 2013The Purple TruthEpilepsy Awareness Day March 26th 20132 years ago in Art Features More Like This
March 26, known to the epileptic community as Purple Day, is a day to promote understanding and teach others the signs of epilepsy and seizures. As one of the most common neurological conditions in the world, directly affecting 65 million people globally, and with 1 out of 10 people having suffered a seizure in their lifetime, this condition has a real presence in our lives. What is epilepsy though?
Epilepsy is defined as a medical condition that produces seizures affecting a variety of mental and physical functions. Normal brain function is made possible by millions of tiny electrical charges passing between nerve cells in the brain and to all parts of the body. When someone has epilepsy, this normal pattern may be interrupted by intermittent bursts of electrical energy that are much more intense than usual.
A seizure, a symptom of epilepsy, occurs when a brief, strong sur

100 POINT/$1 GIVEAWAY BULLSHIT!! LOOK INSIDE!!Okay, guys... I don't know if it's just me that has noticed this god-awful trend here on dA, but what's up with the 100-point giveaways on the front page of popular journals lately?100 POINT/$1 GIVEAWAY BULLSHIT!!

They all go something like this:
- Add me to your watch list to be aware of future giveaways;
- Add this journal to your list
- Write a journal about this giveaway (Optional).
And the best part? They all average for 200 comments at the end of their life span.
So, what's wrong with this, you may ask? Well. We are talking about TWO HUNDRED PEOPLE BEGGING FOR ONE FUCKING DIGITAL DOLLAR NOT REDEEMABLE OUTSIDE OF DEVIANTART. ONE. FUCKING. DOLLAR.
Did I say that loud enough? One dollar. That's what 100 points are roughly worth.
And what do those people who hold these giveaways get for one dollar?
Let me show you by quoting rule nr. 1:
- Add me to your watch list to be aware of future giveaways

I'd just like to mention publicly, that I, as well as artists in general, are not art vending machines.
You don't type suggestions in, and then have a slot where artwork comes out for free .
Important to Note: I am not addressing any individual in particular. If you think this is about *you* specifically ( whoever you are)- don't. This about the private notes I get, with alarming volume, where people feel they can simply request artwork from me for free. I get a *lot* of these. Which prompted me to post something about it. I usually just ignore them, or, if I feel particularly polite that day, I send them a note back saying I don't do requests.
But they never stop o_O. And it's not that I mind suggestions in comments under artwork, such as: "Oh, I hope one day you will paint _________." or, "

This journal is gonna talk about how I actually made my Ahri Costume. I am not pro so my method is gonna waste a lot of fabric like I did.
I used Miyuko's Version as a references because the official paper is a bit small. I believe you can easily get references now because lots of people cosplayer Ahri before.
Materialswill only stated out major materials that you will need to buy, instead of finding them lying around at home.
-Red Matt Satin or printed satin(this work best because of the floral effect, I am out of option SO I used a thick satin instead.
-White Fabric of your choice, feel confortable with it.
-Yellow Satin or printed satin (same reason)
-Bias tape ( if you're using satin then get a satin bias tape)
-Patterned Ribbon/Tape (silver)
-Knitted China Accessories/Red Tassels.
-Big Golden Bell
I start out with the easiest thing - skirt . I draft this free hand.

reposted art removalI think a lot of people might already know this but having only recently found it myself. I think it's a good opportunity to share it with everyone! If someone has posted your art on deviantart without your permission, there's a really simple way of having taken down instead of filing a report (which, from experience is completely ineffective). All you have to do is fill out this form, it's a DMCA form which means as the copyright owner of the art you can elect to have it taken down, by law.reposted art removal1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I didn't find out about filing DMCAs on deviantart until I googled it (silly I know) but they have long existed on tumblr and I've also seen one on weheartit.com. Filing DMCAs seem to be a lot more effective, the art is taken down in a couple of days. And in the case with tumblr all reblogs of the post in question are also deleted, along

This week, we're continuing the love trend. We're doing an art creation contest. However, there's a twist -- you must use three pre-determined items in your piece!
We want you to create a deviation including three specific items that revolves around our theme of love:
Your deviation must contain these images:
How you incorporate these items around the theme of love is up to you!
Of course, you may use more than the objects above, but all three of those objects must appear. Feel free to create whatever inspires you! Maybe someone is creating a model tree with olive-colored leaves in a bottle to give to his love. Or, maybe two olives are sitting in a tree, sipping wine from a bottle. Whatever your mind creates, we want to see it!
You can draw, take a photograph, write a story, use

A Gifted Talent XXXII...ChristianeDear friends of the arts please allow me to introduce to you Christiane and her wonderfully creative visionary work.A Gifted Talent XXXII...Christiane1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I know many of you may already know of her work but for those of you who don't...I think you will find it as stimulating as I have.
Christiane is an artist living and working in Germany. She communicates the visual world as an abstractionist prophetess. There is always a story told or an idealism unveiled within her work.
She brings her creations to life through various mediums such as painting, photography, collage and the occasional digital process.
This is not "knock your socks off" Hollywood blockbuster technically perfect pulp fiction that she has visually written. It is more the stuff of intellectual poetic expressionism. A much more interesting and finer read in my book.
Although Christiane works in the abstract I find her to be deeply rooted in the stark reality of the hoped for utopia DA was founded on...the sharing of art and conceptional ideas that will

I know many of you may already know of her work but for those of you who don't...my hope is that you will find her work as inspirational as I have.
Madeleine is an artist from Canada and for me her work is always visually inscriptive...showing an in-depth talent for the art of Photomanipulation.
DA defines Photomanipulations as the combining of two or more separate images to make one. So simple in theory and yet so hard in execution as I well know, being one who couldn't manip his way out of a paper bag. To create any art in this process alone is commendable but to create the fine art that she does, time and again, is frankly speaking...exemplary.
As Madeleine commented on one of her pieces, "A gentle child cherishes a globe and contemplates a world filled with peace and love"...I think you will find this a recurring theme throughout her fine body of
