An interesting idea I had as I was looking through my comments.
500 points being given.
If you don't really care about entering, just favorite this journal to be entered in to win 100 points.
The main idea is to make me laugh by using the simple doge meme on one of my photographs. It can be any of them; the choice is yours but it must follow certain guidelines.
Please post it to your sta.sh and post it on this journal.
Be original. (You can look to comments from inspiration but don't completely take the ideas there.)
If you have no idea what the shibe/doge meme is. Take this photo for example.
These photos utilize the the comic sans font, usually rainbow colors and text of varying sizes. Th

I clicked on it and it showed me dA login page, but a fake one. Here it is:
Have a look at looooooong weird address in the address bar:
I didn't type username nor password, 'cos it's a fraud. If you do it by mistake, someone will be able to hack your dA account.
If you by accident get this message from honey-sempai173 or any other suspicious new deviant/or the one with no artworks in their gallery, please report them and never ever type your password in the fake login page window they re-direct you to.

To lineart or not to lineart? That is the questionSo i've been seeing this opinion go around dA and that is that works without lineart are better than works with lineart?To lineart or not to lineart? That is the question5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Well i've been on both sides of this subject and i have found that both are equally hard or easy to do. It kind of depends on style here rather than skill.
If you want to draw with lineart then you require a set of skills, without lineart you need another.
I think the reason why people see works with lineart as being inferior to the ones without is because when someone starts to draw something for the first time, they always, with no exception, use lineart. And as artists grow and become better, some stop using lineart, so people assume that works without lineart are more evolved.
Well it's not quite like that. In my personal experience, works without lineart are much easier to do than ones with lineart.
The easy part
when you draw without lineart is you skip the lineart stage (which is tedious and ta

Although going into an art store can be fun but it can also be overwhelming with so many brands, types, and prices to consider. Sometimes, a totally cheapo art supply can work better than an expensive brand. I am going to be sharing my personal favorites and experiences with you and hopefully, the next time you go into an art store, you can have an idea on what to buy and selecting the material which suits your needs.
I am dividing this article into sections so you can skip ahead to the area which you are interested in.

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
