dArp: Daily DeviationsThe DD is a known abbreviation within deviantART.dArp: Daily Deviations10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
But those two letters can be a challenge for all on deviantART sometimes. For this dArp article i will not focus on art but collected the articles and explanations of other people.
Also known as Daily Deviation. It is a daily feature given since the beginning of deviantART to showcase a few selected pieces. For 24 hours it will be seen at the footer or at the DD page. Afterwards it will vanish among the older DD pages. It will be forgotten instantly after those 24h and only gets a bit attention when CVs do their monthly DD feature again or when someone stumbles across them by accident.
Artworks featured as a DD can be easily recognized by that little red heart framed by a golden background below the actual deviation. It often comes together with comments like "Congratulations for the DD".
DDs can not be a journal, a WIP or any artwork located at the 'Scraps' category.

A weekly selection amongst the images I liked,
while browsing the Street Gallery

Liam Sharp was and is one of the most sought after comic artists in the business. After bursting on the scene by drawing the bestselling Marvel UK title of all time, Death Head II, he was back in America illustrating top line comics like Superman, Batman and Spiderman as well as special projects for people like Stan Winston. For anyone unfamiliar with his amazing work, his galleries can be found on deviantART. I recently got lost for an entire day perusing a single file of his Conan illustrations.

Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
You all may have seen those old masterpieces – painted in impasto techniques with rich and bold use of thick coats of colours and you have wondered how on earth they could do that.
So lets take a peek in the old masters' tools and techniques.
Today we will talk about a less used traditional technique – painting with a knife. Though it's a second most famous technique but not much artists use this technique.
Painting with a knife results in excellent textures, helps in bold application of thick rich colours, and, gives a whole new different level and style to your paintings.
Painting knives are very useful in impasto technique – both in acrylics and oils. Besides interesting textures, this certain tool gives you more control over paint and opens up a lot of ways to experiment. In one sentence, painting with a knife brings up your painting styles at a new height.
Some people says this technique can't be used to put

Once again, deviantART has answered the call to be a major sponsor in transforming Artists' Alley at Comic-Con International San Diego a chalice for the arts—bigger, but better, smarter, more informative, more connective and more dedicated than ever to the needs and desires of the artists who daily re-imagine and reshape our reality and dreams for the better.
If you are among the privileged ticket holders who braved the storms and seas to reach the core of the labyrinth, come to Artists' Alley, the artists’ oasis that is the liberated territory occupied and administered by deviantART and experience the rush from being washed in today’s most creative art flowing from the heart of our world.

Who is responsible for the Murder of Cinderella?
Solve the Murder Mystery Contest →
It has now been two weeks since the beautiful fairy tale that was my life has come crashing down into utter devastation and nightmare.
My darling beloved, my Princess, my Cinderella is no more.
She has been taken away from me and from all of you, her legions and generations of fans of her grand and glorious story, by dastardly murderers most heinous, heartless and foul... and as of this hour still unknown.
The personal story of my Cinderella has always been a reassurance (to youth but to all ages as well) that true love will always conquer all adversity, sabotage, and lies. My dear Cinderella

Picasso seeing a seven as an upside down nose?
Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead
