The essentials of Macro photography.Hi, deviants! This week is Community week, and I am giving my best to introduce some essential tips concerning macro photography.The essentials of Macro photography.3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
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: Wikipedia.org)
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
Invader Zim Secret Santa!Hey everyone! Halloween's over and it's on to Thanksgiving and Christmas!Invader Zim Secret Santa!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I am LAUNCHING AN INVADER ZIM SECRET SANTA! >8D IZSS!!
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.
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 lik
$210-Prize Art Contest - All Art Styles Welcome!CONTEST CLOSED!$210-Prize Art Contest - All Art Styles Welcome!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you everyone who participated in the contest! It's certainly been a lot of fun for me, and I hope all you wonderful artists had fun with your entries, too! Now comes the hardest part of all... the judging. As each entry was submitted, I have been admiring them as separate pieces of art and not comparing them to pieces already entered. So I will be organising the entries into their themes, and will choose from there! Expect a new journal announcing the winners either tonight or no later than tomorrow night. Winners will then be contacted via note to choose their prize(s), so don't worry if you don't catch the journal! I have been so impressed with the entries, that I'm thinking of improving second place prizes and then adding a third place prize, too. Everything will be made clear in the winner announcement!
Raffle Winner announced! - Raffle is now closed.

In the event of this group's two week anniversary I thought that it was time for a competition in order to get this group started properly!
:iconpervycielCiel is excited!)
The theme of the competition is going to beee, wait for it, music (I were planning to come up with some awesome and catchy name, but my creative abilities just died, so music it is)!
You are supposed to chose a song (it could be any type of song from any genre), and the title of this song has to be the title of your entry- and your submission has to be inspired by that song! If any of that was unclear, just send me a note or leave a comment!

Sorry, I will be checking tomorrow the entries because today is my Birthday and I will be going out for dinner to celebrate with my family.
Also I would like to compensate because I know most of you don't have the same time as me and some work or sleep.
So considering that I will just extend it a few hours to compensate and that you can have a bit more time to relax, have breakfast, eat, you know (?)
I leave here the new countdown so ignore the one below!
Thank you all for the birthday wishes!
I'm quite happy with the results of this contest so I would be maybe making another one soon!

Contest! (Cash/point prizes)*New prizes added*3 days left!Contest! (Cash/point prizes)*New prizes added*6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Deadline is September 3rd 2015
Draw my Panda and Dzrtbtrfly15's Cat together.
They can be doing anything, as long as they're together! They are a couple, so yes they can kiss, hug, etc.
Things to note
Cat is tan! (not black, but tan! She is Native American/Korean)
Panda loves all things cute and frilly, but she doesn't really like wearing pink.
Cat is into punk style clothing, but she can dress cute too!
The color in their hair is optional. If it clashes with your art, you don't have to include it.
They both enjoy playing video games, reading, drawing; Cat loves coffee and tea, while Panda really enjoys sweets!

I've recently noticed that while I'm still receiving many wonderful messages from watchers; some of those newer comments contain phrases that I find quite disconcerting.
While I enjoy receiving helpful critique, I must say; commentaries featuring dialogue such as 'the feels', doesn't really help my cause to improve, as a writer/and or stamp maker!
In addition, I find that I have a growing dislike for flattering comments, which don't include the commenter having added the work/s they've commented on, to th
