2nd round votingHello dear friends!2nd round voting4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I've spent 3 days to finish counting the votes in my Draw Tom Ripley Contest Some votes are invalid because they didn't follow the rules. [haven't become deviant before 1 Feb 2012, put wrong link, put more than one link, posted in other comment box after voting, etc.] However, we still have 390 valid votes. Let's see how many votes each entry got in the first round.
By the way. I organize popular prize because I want to know which entry will be the best work from public's perspective. I've asked all contestants not to solicit votes from anyone personally/specifically. But I didn't write it as a rule because I thought contestants still can solicit votes in private notes and I'll never know. Now I have realized I was so wrong because I found some abnormality has happened during the v

A face variety challenge! (click the image to see the full challenge)
It's simple; fill the meme with 30 faces before the end of august and you're automatically in for the challenge.
Read the description under the blank meme. It contains tips, tricks and tutorials to get you started. Your style doesn't matter. Realism, cartoons, anime... it's all fine. It doesn't matter if you use digital or traditional art. It doesn't matter if you use lines, shading or color. Everything is fine as long as you have 30 different faces when you complete the meme, and you've learned a thing or two from it.
Don't forget to tag me (or the blank meme) when you're done, so it appears in my inbox and I know you're in.
Among the participants 3x 300 will be given away.

Nia is Iso's twin sister, and despite being born just minutes earlier, she is very much the "older sister" type. While generally being rather caring, there is a tiny bit of sadism in her (directed primarily towards Iso and Anzu). Teasing Iso about a love interest, or flipping up Anzu's dress to s

The following is an extensive guide to the different Labels a Lesbian may have. In my experience I have come across many Lesbians who just thought they were a Lesbian. This guide was at first for TheLesbianClub's Chatroom Classes, but I have decided that this could benefit not only the club but many people out there. If you are a Lesbian and questioning what type of Lesbian you are, then this guide is for you!

Protect yourself against fraudAlthough, as an active member of the community, it's nearly impossible to have missed this huge issue, I think it's very important to warn people for this.Protect yourself against fraud1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What happened is a large case fraud in which apparently one user (under multiple names) scammed several members of DeviantArt community. Leaving some people as much as $3000 in debt!!! Money they, most likely, never see back.
Even though the user is banned by DeviantArt now, there's no reason why it won't happen again.
After all, the problem is caused by a loophole in PayPal's rules. So basically everybody that's using PayPal for its business (and that's a lot of us) is at risk.
People doing commissions
People selling adoptables
To understand where all of this comes from, it's first of all important to know what a PayPal chargeback actually is.
This video offers a proper explanation of what chargeback is, and what it should
That's how you get pageviewsAnd here you have the number one question that people ask me:That's how you get pageviews2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
"How the hell did you get so many people to view your art? You're not even that good!"
I can't do anything other than honestly admitting that I'm not that good at art. I'm not some awesomely skilled concept artist, at least. I've seen many people do a better job while receiving a lot less of attention.
Why a medium like DeviantArt works for me? Probably because I've been around on the internet for so long, and I've spend so much time working for internet-marketing company's, that things like advertising and web usability have become a second nature to me. A lot of the things that I've come to regard as common sense in internet communication, are things that are nowadays proven successful by research.
It's important to know that websites like DeviantArt are listed in the category social media. That probably didn't occur to most people, since DeviantArt seems to be so heavily focused towards art (and tradi

And my friend did a petition that covers my points:
Are you here about SOPA 2014? I'm still working on my write-up of the latest SOPA Scare. Most of the research is done, and I am in editing/petition hunting now. If you'd like to see what I have, and maybe even help, the link is here:
Please do not use the article you're looking at now, "The Real Story on SOPA 2013/Section 201," to figure out the current situation. It has NOTHING to do with the two things that have people crying that SOPA is back this time.
EDIT 3/12/2014: This article is OUTDATED and does not apply to the latest "SOPA scare." I'm hoping to write up a more detailed article on the new SOPA, but last I checked research was light, and these things take time.

Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.Tips For Commission Artists1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple
Don't add too many unnecessary rules or in

Previously featured artist was bwaworga and I was glad to feature a deviant as talented as her.
Today I'm featuring someone very well known on deviantART, one of the most inspirational artists that I've seen on this site. It's not only his flawless images, art of dancing, everyday beauty, love stories; it's also little tales in the description boxes that I find beautiful and intriguing:
a little about him:
Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.
Beat your fear
Most artblocks come from fear. The fear of not being able to

What's a 7 Days Drawing Challenge?
The challenge is drawing 7 different things based on 7 themes I will give you guys. A drawing a day. I know it may sound a bit tiring but the objective is to keep yourself inspired during 7 days in a row. The more you draw, the more you'll feel like drawing!
What about the Rules?
The only rule is that you have to draw (and submit) something each day! It doesn't matter the media nor the art style. That means it can be traditional or digital. The style may be realistic, manga/anime, cartoon, etc. It may be a Black&White artwork but it has to be a final piece. Oh! Don't forget to mention me with "Picolo-kun" so it will pop up into my messages and I'll be able to see the artwork!
I'm not one of these wealthy guys on dA so I'll tr
