Invader Zim Secret Santa!

Sun Nov 3, 2013, 11:19 AM

Hey everyone! Halloween's over and it's on to Thanksgiving and Christmas!


I am going to host a Secret Santa for all of you in the IZ fandom out there! : D

What is a Secret Santa?

A secret santa is a "tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift" however in this case the "gift" will be a drawing.

All of you who sign up for the Secret Santa will be randomly assigned someone to draw a gift for, and you also will be receiving a gift from someone. 

How does it work and how do I sign up?

1. In order to be in this Secret Santa you need to feature this journal, spread the news so we can get as many people as possible. :) (Smile)

2. When you join you must tell me WHAT you want your Secret Santa to draw for example you can say "I'd like a drawing of my character ____ doing ____" or "I'd like a scene of ____ and ____ doing _____" etc etc etc. 

3. In order to sign up complete the following form and post it in a comment on this journal...
deviantART name: 
Dear Secret Santa, I would like...(write what you'd like to be drawn for you here)
Character Reference(s): 
Any Additional character information: 

4. On December 1st sign up will be closed and you will receive a note with who you are drawing for and what they want as a gift.

5. You have until December 25th on which you will be expected to upload your gift for the person you were assigned AND you MUST note them/comment on their page and let them know their gift is posted (If you cannot post on the 25th for whatever reason you will be expected to post it either the 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, or 24th, please do not post it AFTER Christmas, it kinda defeats the purpose :I if you have an emergency/computer crash/etc, contact me and let me know and I will see what I can do) 

Rules and Exceptions

1. IF you have a family vacation and will be leaving BEFORE the 20th and wont be back in time for the 25th, just make sure you post it before you leave

2. You WILL BE EXPECTED to do a quality image for the person you've been assigned. If you simply draw them a wimpy sketch/line art, that isn't very nice :( (Sad) HOWEVER if sketching/line art is all you can do 
(like you don't have photoshop or a scanner or w/e the cause) that is okay.

3. TRY NOT to not request anything too complex for your Secret Santa, how would you feel if someone requested you to draw something with 5+ characters and a complex background? <:/ 
(I'm not saying you can't ask for more than one character, but I would say leave the max at 3, and provide an alternate idea in case you think your request might be too complex so you don't overwhelm your Secret Santa)

4. DROPPING OUT, if you need to drop out PLEASE LET ME KNOW IMMEDIATELY it would be quite troublesome if you were assigned a person and had to drop out, that leaves them without a Santa, and I wouldn't have anyone to put in place of their Santa. 

5. It is ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE for you not to produce a gift for your assigned person by Christmas. It will not be tolerated. If you KNOW you aren't going to be able to produce a gift PLEASE LET ME KNOW I need a minimum notice of 10 DAYS prior to Christmas, the 25th of December.

In all honesty I do not know what I will be able to do if you have been assigned and need to drop please, let me know before your assigned if you cannot produce a gift. If you realize you can't after you've been assigned you need to notify me ASAP no questions asked.

Now, with all that said, let it begin!


(Slots are unlimited)

9. :icontheevilteadrinker:
Dear Secret Santa, I would like a picture of my OC Enya, and my friends OC Skulli together. Doesn't have to have anything to do with Christmas.

-They aren't the type to display affection too openly, if anything their intimate moments that actually show that they care for one another are more private.
-In public it is more like little things, Enya putting up with Skulli's wild behavior for example, or just the way they interact with one another.
-Enya manages to always keep Skulli guessing when it comes to how she behaves, in a way they are completely Yin and Yang but help to fix the broken pieces of one another.

Character Reference(s):
Additional Character Information:
-Her PAK is just light grey with purple spots.
-Her eyes don't match other irken eyes, instead of just purple she has a hint of red in her eyes as well (mostly on the top and bottom), so make sure her eyes are dark purple and a little red. -Nekka is happy-go-lucky so she will most likely be doing something fun and exciting, or something to help others. I'm pretty sure that's all

13.  :iconzoologykam:

Just wanted to UPDATE this journal with another quick clip of some of our interviews from Tuesday night's premiere in NYC. This one was a bit strange because I didn't want to look right in the cell phone camera... it was so close to my face, lol! Enjoy the awkwardness.

YO! I just returned safely from our JL: War Premiere in beautiful and blizzardous NYC, and I just wanted to thank all the fans and comics and animation press that braved the insane weather to come see us! You guys and gals helped make it a really special night for us, and on behalf of the cast and crew I want you to know that it is deeply appreciated. We have another JL War screening coming up NEXT THURSDAY the 30th of January at the Paley center in LA. Not sure if tickets are still being sold, but I do believe it's still possible to get in for the resourceful and dedicated who either love what we do, or can't wait to tell us how much we suck to our faces! 
Here is clip featuring a couple interviews from last night…

ALSO ...the first Son of Batman trailer hit the internet... 
I am personally really proud of this one, I think it is some of our best work yet. 

  • Listening to: Pandora the explora
  • Reading: The Last Wish
  • Watching: Sherlock
  • Playing: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
  • Eating: Home cookin'
  • Drinking: Single Malt, of course

Your Feedback

Thanks for your feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say.
  • Feedback regarding the update to the Earnings page was positive.
  • Responses to the Discuss topic varied. Several deviants mention that they add Prints to their Wishlist when browsing, and then purchase them at a later date, while other deviants mentioned searching in the Prints Shop or browsing their Favourites for artwork that has Prints enabled.



In June, Multi-Submit was launched, giving Premium Members the ability to easily upload and submit several deviations from the Submit page all at once. Have you used Multi-Submit? If so, how often do you use it, and what do you submit with it? Do you find it easy or useful to be able to submit multiple deviations at once?

PE: Forum Overview

Tue Apr 9, 2013, 2:53 AM by 3wyl:icon3wyl:

After Astralseed's awesome article on Breaking Into Chatrooms, today's article will be focused on providing a general overview of the forum!

Within the forum, there are many Forums that you can enter into to create threads for discussion. These threads encourage other people to make posts in response to the 'original post' created by the 'original poster' - the person who created the thread. If you scroll down the forum page, there are many Forums that focus on a specific topic so that all threads within that forum must relate to the specific topic of the Forum itself. For example, if you stumble across the 'Gaming Forum', the specific topic is 'Gaming', so all threads within the 'Gaming Forum' must relate to 'Gaming'. This is important because if your thread does not relate to Gaming, it will be moved or locked.

After clicking the forum, for example, the Deviants Forum, you will be presented with 'Sticky Threads' which are significant threads that ideally should be read before you start posting or creating threads. Then, below that section, you will be presented with all the threads that other members have created for you to take part in. If you scroll to the bottom, you have the option to create your own thread too.

It's pretty straight-forward, so let's get cracking into what these forums are! :dummy:

  • :bulletblue: Welcome Centre ~ Introduce yourself and make new friends!
  • :bulletblue: Complaints ~ Vent your frustration here. We strongly recommend lurking before posting!

Art Related Forums
If you want to go more specific than the General Art Forum, we have...

Community Focused Forums
  • :bulletyellow: Politics ~ Discussion related to politics
  • :bulletyellow: Philosophy & Religion ~ Discussion related to philosophy and religion
  • :bulletyellow: Help with Life ~ Seek serious advice for real life concerns. We do not encourage self-diagnosis and will not help diagnose issues
  • :bulletyellow: Praise ~ Discussion related to all things wonderful

Entertainment Focused Forums ~ Discussions related to entertainment

Technology Focused Forums

Forums that offer opportunities
  • :bulletpink: Deviation Thumbshare ~ Sharing and exchanging onsite art and feedback
  • :bulletpink: Groups, Chatrooms & Events ~ Promote your Groups, Chatrooms, and offsite events here
  • :bulletpink: Projects ~ Promote point commissions, requests, art trades, onsite contests, giveaways, contributions to deviantART, offsite projects and other deviantART related happenings
  • :bulletpink: Job Offers ~ Promote your job offers if you are offering to pay someone to do a job for you
  • :bulletpink: Job Services ~ Promote your job services if you are offering to provide a service for a fee

Specialised Forums

Before you get carried away with this all and start posting, we strongly suggest you read the Forum Rules before posting or creating a thread. These rules will be at the top of every forum you go into, and it will start with 'READ BEFORE POSTING'. All of them will link to FAQ #801: Are there any rules for the Forums? which we recommend you take in. These are the ground rules that are established for you to understand and take on board so that your experience with the forum is as good as it can be.

So after bearing that in mind, we hope you all have fun in the forum, because it's a place on deviantART like no place other! :la:

All info on the Venasions ever made (Plz read)

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 5, 2013, 9:59 AM
this is a Journal about my Venasions. Venasion (HUGE REVAMP, READ PLZ v ) by Dipndotz97

If you own a Venasion oc, Please read. I would also like it if everyone would read through this all and maybe you'll seem interested in an oc.

ok heres the thing. I can't have the Drogon's anymore For many reasons. I don't feel like explaining on, so hold onto your questions till lator.

Here we go:
1. Appearance: a VenaSion is a a leaf Lizard that eats meat. the blue cover on it's back is a large Reptile scale that holds Several tendral-like vines that are able to quickly catch prey with a very sticky substance all over the vine.  the Vines on the Venasions head are Basically vine antennae. as for the vines on the gold colar, the venasions use these vines to pick up things because they have trouble using their feet.
they can have three eye styles. an Irken esque a regular round pupil, or a cat like slit. Venasion Stuff to know by Dipndotz97
the only colors they can be are Blue, Green, Red, Dark Purple, Brown, Dark Orange, Turquoice, And Indigo
their Eyes can be ANY color thought of, It doesn't matter
what ever color you make the eyes, the large scale, and the tongue, HAS to be the same color. you can add some markings like spots freckles, or stripes to anywhere on their bodies, except their vines scales and Poison barb (I'll get more into barbs lator)
when making a Venasion you can choose wheather or not you wanna give it one or two horns. Males don't have to have horns so horns are optional. However, but when it comes to making females, try to Make sure you give them a horn, rather then none, because of certain reasons, that I'll get to later.
their horns can be either black, grey, or Golden.
Every Venasion HAS a Golden Colar on their neck. This colar is the source of their used abilities.

2. Difference between male and female:

Female:        Varzi Venasion Oc~ by Dipndotz97          Male:     Venasion oc for Dan~ by Dipndotz97

Females have fluff ball like furr on their tails        Males have poison barbs.

when creating a Venasion, it's always fun to try and pick the gender because there are few things different about both genders!

the Males have a sharp Poison barb at the end of it's tail. note, that the barb is the same color as the horn. if you don't have a horn on your male, the colors you can choose from are of course the same as horns. inside the barb, a dark purple substance is always visable. this is the poison it injects into enemies or prey.

the Females have very puffed up tails that can be any shape or size at the ends. this is just for looks, and doesn't get any use out of it. females do have their own ability that differs from all males. the reason females always have horns is because they can shoot them at The Enemy, or prey, stabbing them well.

3. Abilities:
paralysis: The venasion's use this once they catch their Prey with their Tendrels.
Sizeshifting: Every Venasion has the ability to change size, Which is how they eat huge insect prey, and Grow a larger size then them.
The Last ability depends on the gender:
Males: Have Poisen Barbs Hidden in their tail.
Females: Can shoot Their spikes from their Head, harming foes easily.

4. Diet:
Being a leaf Lizard, the Venasion loves to eat anything that resembles insects. the two smal prey found on Their planet are the most common
Venasion prey: Venasion Prey by Dipndotz97

the one thing that most venasions really want, are to find the Irkens and   Feed on them. normally, They try to go for the helpless prey. so if they found your smeet, watch out, cause it'd be Reptile food XD

5. young: a young Venasion, is aslo known as a Lart. it eats the greens it can find in it's living area. it also is very loyal to it's care taker. a care taker is a female Venasion that takes care of all the Larts ever made. (I'll draw the care taker soon) once the Lart is old enough, the care taker lets it go and the lart Tries to find it's Parent, reuniting with them and continues growing older into a full grown Venasion.
Lart: Venasion-Lart- (IMPORTANT INFO TOO v) by Dipndotz97

6. Planet, and clans: the  Venasion lives on a beautiful Planet called Flora. There is all kinds of Plant life living there so that the larts can eat as much as needed.
on Flora, The Venasions work together as one big Clan. the leader of the Clan, Veen, is the one that does the ordering on them all. Veen loves her clan and only gives them orders when really needed.
in order to feed her clan though, she is sending out a group of Venasions to hunt for Irkens.
in this Venasion group, they will travel out of Flora, and find a planet to hunt on. (My oc Varzi is on earth in disguise as a young girl with green hair XD )
 this Is what gives you Venasion fans an awesome chance make an oc to BE in that group~

I hope you all like this 'wonderful' species, and I hope to see some Venasion art if possible~

If you wanna make one, and maybe have your oc in the Venasion group, ask me, and I'll be sure to let you know~ ^^

For weeks, we've been teasing you with our "It's coming..." campaign. Claiming that something  was innovative, expressive, inspiring, and coming... soon! With August 7th, 2010, upon us — aka deviantART's 10th birthday — the time has come to unveil the product we've spent months developing: deviantART Muro!

From start to finish, deviantART Muro allows users to create complete works of art in ways never before realized by digital drawing programs. deviantART Muro already boosts standard and interactive brushes, full-blown layer capabilities, and the ability to upload directly to your deviantART account, but we've also left room for expansion. You can expect to see many features and functions added in the coming weeks and months.

  • deviantART's free HTML5 powered drawing app
  • 21 brushes, each uniquely programmed
  • Basic and Pro modes, both free
  • Intuitive layout and functionality
  • Supports all HTML5-enabled browsers including the iPad
  • Submit drawings directly to your deviantART Gallery
  • Convenient design allows more focus on your art
  • Join fellow deviants in a public forum to share drawings
  • Start private threads in your group's Admin Area and enjoy picture comments

A handful of deviantART's top digital artists have been helping test deviantART Muro, ensuring that it's exactly what they, and the community, would expect from our top-tier drawing tool. The nine deviations to the right were created exclusively with deviantART Muro and accurately depict the tool's wide range of drawing capabilities.

The time has come for you to start using deviantART Muro! The standalone tool is available in both Basic and Pro modes — Basic for beginning artists and Pro for more experienced users.

If you're interested in sharing drawings with friends, two options are available via Basic mode.

Participate in the deviantART Muro forum to share drawing enabled forum comments.

Groups can choose to allow drawing enabled comments in the Private Discussion Forum of their Admin Area.


We've been developing deviantART Muro for many months now and to finally release it to the world is an important and special moment for us. Many conversations have brought us to this point and we've come to realize that making deviantART Muro as widely adoptable as possible, while still giving enthusiasts options for expansion, is one of the tool's most integral features.

Deviants can sit down with deviantART Muro and have fun from the first stroke, or can spend hours crafting the perfect masterpiece. An intuitive drawing tool that's easy to understand and master, with the benefit of being contained within a single browser window, we truly believe that deviantART Muro will revolutionize how art is created and shared on the Internet. The work our developers and engineers have put into this product is inspiring and is a testament to deviantART's commitment for enhancing and revitalizing the arts.

Please join me in leaving your mark with deviantART Muro.

The essentials of Macro photography.

Sun Dec 23, 2012, 2:36 AM

Hi, deviants! This week is Community week, and I am giving my best to introduce some essential tips concerning macro photography.

But first of all: What is macro photography?

Macro photography - what is it about? 
Wikipedia tells us things like "extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size" (Source:
But is that really all that matters? It is a common fact that many people believe that macro photography is photography which refers to life size, which means 1:1. The object is the same size on your sensor/film it is in real life.

"Great thing, but I cannot start macro photography, since I do not have a macro lens."

That's what many people think. It is not the lens or the camera taking the pictures. Of course everything is made easier for us when we use a macro lens, but if you do not have any knowledge about your camera settings, then you will just take snapshots, even with the most expensive camera ever. If you do not know what I mean, then check out this journal, it will help you! 
How to improve your skills in close-up-photographySince many people asked me how I take my pictures and why they are so "special", I would like to tell you how I manage things when I take pictures.
I. Finding the location
When I go outside to take pictures of nature, I do barely have any concepts in my mind. I just go and let nature inspire me. The first important step is finding a location.It is not that difficult to find an interesting background. I personally do prefer backgrounds which are not monochrome. Many shades of light (light and dark contrasts or different colors) make your picture interesting, no matter if the final result will be monochrome or colorful in the end.I look out for locations where not many people are. Like a big meadow in front of a house or a field or forests. (Forests do have the special plus that it does almost always have different light shadings I mentioned in 2).
II. Know your possibilities!

You have found your favourite location? Great! Many people do the mistake to

Right. As I already said, it is not that difficult to take macro shots, or to come close the 1:1-ratio, even with a Kit lens!
You do not know how? Then listen to me, I will try to explain it to you.

Which equipment is absolutely necessary?

That's a fact many people ask me, actually. 
As I said, it is not the camera taking the pictures, and it is also not the lens. It is the photographer taking pictures, and that's why it is up to you how to take pictures! You may choose the angle, composition, etc.
So I would not say you need the newest Canon-Mark III or the Nikon D800 to take great pictures, the megapixel size of the sensor does also not count that much (almost always it is better to stick around 10MP, since there are not that many pixels on one millimeter, and the grain is reduced then). But what I would really recommend is a DSLR, because while a "normal" Digicam may have the best macro mode ever, it will never have the ability to create shallow depth of field, which is important for a "good" macro photo. (Which does not mean you cannot take great pictures with a point and shoot-camera, but I will continue with DSLRs now.)
You do not even need a macro lens for macro photography.
"Oh really??" will some people ask now. Yes, it is possible, and you can also take even higher scales (like 2:1 [the object is twice the size on your sensor as it is in real life) with you Kit lens, which is normally a 18-55mm lens. I do also own one, and I began my passion for macro photography with this Kit lens.

Which equipment is optional?

I personally own a closeup-filter, which really helps me to get much closer to the object. But I will talk about that later.
Helpful are also extension tubes, which increase the focal distance of your lens. I never tried it, but many people told me it is a great alternative to a macro lens, too.
Optional is also an adapter for sticking your lens upside down towards the camera, which means: The electrical devices are pointing towards you then, not to the camera!

What are the techniques?

Yes, I used the plural, since there is more than one technique!
I will try to explain them to you in a short, but understandable way.

1. Reverse macro technique
This technique does not require any purchase of additional equipment, since you only need your kit lens, or any other lens, which can also have a wide angle (10-50mm). 
Step 1: Remove your lens from your camera.
Step 2: Turn it around 180°, so that the electrical devices turn towards you.
Step 3: you only need step 3 if you have a retro-adapter, which allows you to stick the lens reversed to your camera. If you do not have an adapter, skip to step 3a. Put on the reverse adapter to your lens (like a filter) and put it on your camera again. Tada, you have a selfmade macro lens!
Step 3a: If you do not have an adapter, do it like I do: Take your lens and hold it to your camera, which can be quite complicated. 
Since you cannot choose the settings to use, just do experiments. There is no general formula for doing this, but I am sure you will make it when you spend a little time on it.

2. Getting closer to the object with the help of Extension tubes (… )
These tubes allow you to get closer to the object, since their closest focussing distance is avoided here. The focal length of the lens is increased through the millimeters you win with them. You can go closer to the object and focus normally, like you did before.
How to use it: You put it behind your lens, between lens and camera.
Advantage: You get no loss of quality.
Disadvantage: Since the lens is "longer", the light needs more time to travel through it, which leads to a loss of light. Also, when you buy cheap ones, there are no electrical connections in it and you cannot choose aperture or shutter speed anymore.
I personally did never use any tubes, but maybe you prefer trying that method out.

3. Getting closer to the object with the help of close-up-filters (… )
This method allows you to lower your closest focussing distance by the use of a filter. You put it on in front of your lens. The Closeup-filter operates like a magnifying glass, depending on which dioptre you use. Be careful: You need to go much further to the object, which means that the depth of field gets really shallow.
Advantages: More light comes in, the pictures are brighter
Disadvantages: The image quality gets lost a bit if you do not buy expensive filters.

Finally, some tips for macro photography, and then I will come to an end.

Use composition rules like
DSC 9032 DxO raw1111mit111da by dragonfly-oli 
the rule of thirds


DSC 8088 DxOda by dragonfly-oli 
the golden ratio.

2. Avoid distracting objects in your picture, try to focus on only one object.
DSC 8964 DxO rawda by dragonfly-oli

3. The most important one: Take care of the focus. Some millimeters handshake may lead to unsharp pictures. I recommend a tripod or a really calm hand. :giggle:
Some DON'Ts:

DSC 9038 DxO rawda by dragonfly-oli 
the focus is behind the flake

DSC 9036 DxO rawda by dragonfly-oli 
focus behind the flake

4. Get close to your object. The closer you get, the more shallow will be your depth of field.

What IS Anthropomorphic Art?

What is Anthropomorphic Art?

Anthropomorphism or personification is any attribution of human characteristics (or characteristics assumed to belong only to humans) to other animals, non-living things, phenomena, material states, objects or abstract concepts, such as organizations, governments, spirits or deities. The term was coined in the mid-1700s. Examples include animals and plants and forces of nature such as winds, rain or the sun depicted as creatures with human motivations, and/or the abilities to reason and converse. The term derives from the combination of the Greek ἄνθρωπος (ánthrōpos), "human" and μορφή (morphē), "shape" or "form".

As a literary device, anthropomorphism is strongly associated with art and storytelling where it has ancient roots. Most cultures possess a long-standing fable tradition with anthropomorphized animals as characters that can stand as commonly recognized types of human behavior. In contrast to this, conventional Western science, as well as such religious doctrines as the Christian Great Chain of Being propound the opposite, anthropocentric belief that animals, plants and non-living things, unlike humans, lack spiritual and mental attributes, immortal souls, and anything other than relatively limited awareness.

I'm going to give you some of the points that I'll analyze your art upon:

How do you convey the quotes given in a limited space of canvas? What does the gesture of your character tells me? What does this object actually 'say' within the scene?

What is the mood of your drawing? What are the relevance of your drawing with the quote? How's the composition, the color scheme and the atmosphere?

Yes, I will definitely visit each of your galleries and see how do you actually put your effort into this entry you submitted.

All will be scored with points, the one with highest points will become the winner.


The judges will be ME, alas, :iconclassicnightmare: and my family~!
(Just so you know, my family are all critical about what's 'between the lines' so you have to give me your best, alright? ^^ )
