Bring Out the Monsters!
About this time every year, ghastly fiends slink out from their hidden lairs. Horrendous beasts come forth to feast. Our nightmares spring to life. It's time to imprison these horrors safely into story form in our Fiendish Fan Fiction Contest! The theme for this contest is "Monsters and Creatures."
Halloween is fast approaching, so let's celebrate by breaking out the pens and pencils (or keyboards)!

It's September, which means another school year has begun. The break of the summer has finally settled and all the kids, equipped with their little rucksacks, are ready for education!
For young children, school is about learning and exploring those basic skills we now take for granted as we get older. We learn them through a variety of lessons, and reading is essentially one of those. Do you remember those stories you read when you were in Primary or Elementary school?
Did you ever read Magic School Bus? The series, by Joanna Cole, featured a class of children and their eccentric teacher Ms Frizzle travelling on a bus to the most exotic of locations to understand how things worked- from inside the human body, to a water system and even outer space. The

I believe that many current and former volunteers will agree with that sentiment and I feel it's important to explain a bit about why I believe this to be true.
Maybe you're not aware of the variety of ways people join the volunteer team. As per FAQ #85: Can I be a volunteer on deviantART? many people send in an application to express their interest in joining the team and I go through those applications and s

Contest: Crossovers! As kids, we often mashed our toys together, regardless of Copyright. Superman would take command of G.I. Joe to defeat the combined forces of Doctor Doom and the Decepticons, while Barbie took a break from her idealistic lifestyle to become a Pokemon master. And the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got recruited into Starfleet and taught Spock the wonders of pizza. (And from the furor arose Mister Rogers in a blood-stained sweater.)Contest: Crossovers!2 years ago in Official deviantART Contests More Like This
And thus, the Crossover was born. It's something we never really outgrew, either. To this day, seeing our favorite characters from different stories meet and compete is a guilty pleasure that we all like to indulge in. So now's your chance to indulge yourselves for prizes!
Conceptual CreationsConceptual Photography is about taking an idea and constructing something from it. It's not ordinary photography - it nearly always has a plan, and is very rarely spontaneous. Conceptual Photography expresses dreams, ideas, fairy-tales, wishes and much more.

Kaz-D and 3wyl are your current Conceptual Photography CVs, so if you see anything within the Conceptual Photography gallery here on deviantART that you would like to see featured as a daily deviation, please send it to one of us via note.

5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Traditional and Digital art are both completely different mediums, able to create the same product. It is possible to paint a beautiful, watercolor-like painting digitally, as well as achieve the cleanliness and color options of a digital piece traditionally. Therefore, using one or the other to express ourselves creatively is, just like many things in life, just an option. People may have personal, sometimes even illogical reasons for using one or the other and that's fine. Today, however, I'm a cheerleader for the "traditional side", and I offer you 5 reasons to do it traditionally!
1. Oh the wonderful smell of art supplies > I'm not talking about the toxic smell that come painting techniques require, of course. Rather about the feeling you get when entering a huge art supply store, touching all those brand new pencils and tubes
Communities rely on Pillars made of HeartCommunities of all kinds are held up by pillars made of heart. Typically embodied by people who let the weight of their community rest on their shoulders, willing to let life be life. Sometimes it hurts, and sometimes it's comfortable. Regardless, the result is a halo that surrounds all participants in a community. The healing light of being mothered, fathered or cared for.Communities rely on Pillars made of Heart8 months ago in Personal More Like This
These are very special people who take this role in your community. Maybe this person is you. In which case, please be you today, and every day. Because you are very important.
For the rest of us, we all know who the pillars are that hold up the communities that we care about. We all know the value of what they do, especially when we stop to think about it.
There is nothing in life that I have ever found a deeper admiration for than people who take on this role. Pillars of Community. When a human being digs their heels in, claims territory and begins to show Love towards a group of people, they begin to embody

Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!Texture Your World Contest2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.
There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.
These are textures created digitally by
