How to Make the Most out of Lit GroupsCommunity WeekHow to Make the Most out of Lit Groups8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
..and stay active! Which we all know isn't always easy.
with a side of "submission rules, those tricksies"
Now, first of all: this article assumes a lot of stuff!
you're interested in writing and/or reading.you're not joining thousands of groups just to submit your stuff all over the place to get exposure but give nothing back.
you're not simply following groups to stay up-to-date on their events and news, without really wanting to participate in their life.
And with that off of our systems, let's start the tour!
First of all, remember this: Lit groups take a lot more effort than any other. This is because, obviously, reading through deviations takes more time than viewing pictures and photographs.
So let's create a fictional situation.
I know there are people who are on deviantART multiple times a day, but let's suppose that you're an average user who logs in once a day, and has thirty minutes to an hour of free time to devote to dA. And when
Last chance to buy my art book! Only 10 hours leftSo i prolonged the deadline because it's weekend But tomorrow when i wake up, i need an accurate count of how many people buy my art book so i know how many to printLast chance to buy my art book!

So this is a super last minute update and i'm sorry for not mentioning this earlyer. But there will be a second chance to get an art book with soft covers out of the ones that got left over from Aniventure. They are printed with another printing company but i'll explain everything later. The point is, the soft cover is $10 cheaper than the hard cover. I will make the announcement when i get some time
So just a quick update, my pre-orders end on September 20, so it's the last chance to get your hands on a copy of my art book!
Thank you to everyone who bought a copy already, i will prin them soon and ship them
For those who don't know what i'm talking

So wrapping up the awesome week we've had...is a Did you know? section, a Q/A with :iconsstrikerr: (a 3d character artists for Riot Games) and a wrap up linking the other articles and contest going on for the week! Starting on Monday is 3-Dimensional project educate week which I am also hosting
Did you know ?
Did you know that the Game Development category is for original work only? It's not for fan-art of pre-existing games, nor is it for screenshots of your favourite games that you are playing. The only time there's an exception is if you worked for that game studio on that game and some content in the piece you are posting is partly your work. Partly the reason why Game Development Art got put into a sub category was because many people were miss understanding the purpose of the category entirely thinking it was for Video game artwork o

Animal Photo Contest/Raffle [CLOSED]CONTEST IS NOW CLOSEDAnimal Photo Contest/Raffle [CLOSED]11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It's time for my 2nd annual Animal Photo Contest!

Getting started with digital artAs an artist that does digital art, I always get a lot of questions about what tablets people should use and how to make their choices. While I think equipment isn't all that matters, I think some things are good to take in consideration when buying a tablet. So here's something to get you started!Getting started with digital art2 weeks ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Why do I need a tablet? Can't I use a mouse instead?
The biggest reason; ergonomics. When you do a lot of computer work in general, it's better to use a tablet over a mouse. This is because a mouse isn't designed for precision work. It's putting too much pressure on muscles that are not intended for precision work, hence it raises your chances to get all kinds of nasty injury's. Even if you can draw just fine with a computer mouse, you might actually consider to start using a tablet, for the reason that

How to beat procrastination (part 1)As I said on a previous submission, I'm planning to make some tutorials on the upcoming December. Before that, however, I feel like I can help on another subject, which comes before even starting your drawing: Procrastination. I mean, procrastination towards your own drawings.How to beat procrastination (part 1)7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
If you're not familiar with this word:
pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|
"the action of delaying or postponing something."
Why am I talking about this?
Well, a year ago I used to be a professional procrastinator. I've imposed the 365 Days of Doodles challenge to myself for this particular reason.
While procrastination is to some degree a natural phenomenon and can’t be completely eradicated, you can use the following strategies to get in the habit of getting drawings done.
Mind that these are not golden rules or such, just strategies that work fo
