I wanted to share with you a note I found on my desk at hq when I returned. Yanira works here at the office once or twice a week and she had her nephews in with her during the break.
We have a ton of these deviantART coasters laying around HQ so they must have found them. We originally made them for originaldrinkanddraw and I'm so glad they found them! I'm going to have to get more just in case the elves come again!
Look what they left for me!
How cool are these?! Um, please ignore the devious slogan on there... Hopefully the artistic elves knew we were talking about delicious, healthy milk!

I gotta call the firemen! It is a wildfire!!
You get where the fire is... it is not a normal fire... it is dark... reddish, and seem to be filled with strange eyes of flame and the long flames look like snakes and dancing witches... it seems to be coming from a hole in the ground... suddenly the smoke starts to cover you!!
It is fine, it is simply smoke
I step back, away from the smoke, I keep looking at the strange flames
The smoke takes the shape of a strange lady with horns and wings, she is completely dark, made of smoke

Good NewsI'm excited to let you know that Autodesk, Inc. has made an investment in deviantART and that one of Autodesk's top executives, Samir Hanna, Vice President of the Autodesk Consumer Group, will become an observer on the deviantART Board of Directors.Good News1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Autodesk has over 30 years of history in helping designers create amazing things. You may know Autodesk for apps like SketchBook and Pixlr for drawing, illustration, and image editing, or for software like 3ds Max and Maya, which are used by the top film and game studios around the world to create fantastically realistic 3D characters, environments, and effects.

Autodesk is also known for engineering software like AutoCAD, Inventor, and Revit, which has been used to design some of the world’s tallest buildings, longest bridges, and most incredible machines.

The Art of Capturing Souls:icontechgnotic:The Art of Capturing Souls4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The human face, usually that of one’s mother, is the first visual connection a new human being has with the world. That face is the world. Psychologists tell us that the greater percentage of what we communicate with each other in any conversation is transmitted and received through our reading of each other’s facial expressions during our chat – and more often than not, we trust the truth to be what we read in another’s face, this truth being as often as not contrary to the words being spoken.
Crazy Horse had no fear of leading his warriors against Custer’s guns at the Little Big Horn, but he wouldn’t let his picture be taken on his deathbed, lest his soul be captured in the photograph. For Crazy Horse it may indeed have been more than the mere chronicling of the death of a particular moment in time that was captured. Maybe it’s because of our unique evolutionary trajectory (w

So... the community's response to DeviantArt's revamped website,
especially the new logo was, as expected, fairly polarizing.
While some members, myself included, liked/loved the new look, others weren't
particularly impressed by it and found the redesign... "unnecessary".
But who am I to judge?
All I know is that I'm a proud member of the largest online art community in the world!!
In honor of DeviantArt's controversial rebranding,
I'd like to share with you a list of 40 logos of popular brands with hidden messages behind them.

So it's taken me pretty much forever to open my commissions, but I finally did it! Keep in mind this will be my first time openly allowing commissions that involve real, actual money so I'll probably iron this journal out later down the line.
Things I will draw
Pixel art is a thing that a lot of people seem to want from me, so it would only be logical if I made these open for commission.
I also do full-blown illustrations, too!
I'll do comics as well, as long as they're kept to a relatively short length. (No full-blown novels, please)
I'll do simple flash animations, too
Check out my gallery for a general idea of things I will do.

To Tell a Story:
The theme of this contest is to tell a story, which is vague, but also very to-the-point. All artwork tells a story whether it intends to or not, as we all interpret what we wish to, when we see it. Your goal for this contest is to create a piece of art, with a specific story in mind. It can be your story, the story of someone you know, it can be fictional, it can be short, it can be sad, it can be ha

The contest involves drawing one of my OCs mentioned below according to the theme. This theme involves drawing an OC according to one of the facts written about them below. For example, if the fact you chose was "they loves scones" then you could draw them eating a scone.

First thing's first, you really want to start your story with a hook. I probably sound like a teacher saying that, but it honestly works. Whether it be super dramatic, really sad, really happy, super lovey-dovey, dialouge, or even just one word will be enough to make the Reader wonder what could possibly happen next.
DC puss out.While at my local comic-book emporium, I had a quick leaf through Harley Quinn #0 to check out the winning page from DC’s recent talent search.DC puss out.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It didn’t do much to dampen the disdain I harbour for the big-name comic companies.
For a start, I’m not sure how that page was selected as the cream of the crop. Bravo to the artist for being selected, sure, but there were far more dynamic, lively examples I saw posted here on DA, and I'm genuinely surprised that none of them were chosen. The page selected feels just as stiff, stagnant, sterile and devoid of life as much of the other stuff DC discharges onto the shelves (which might have been why they ran with it).
The main gripe I have, though, is that they changed the final panel.
For those that (somehow) missed the whoo-haa that the whole talent search kicked off: the script DC provided to their would-be artists called for illustrations depicting the titular Harley trying to off herself in a series of absurd ways: holding

Emotions Abstract by zampedroni
The earliest known artworks of humans, found on cave walls dating back about 40,000 years, tell stories.
Usually the stories are of amazing hunts for enormous wooly mammoths and other food sources. Others suppose they were plans for hunts, no different from a coach’s football plays.
Today we are learning of abstract artworks on the cave walls, seemingly deliberately hidden, and much farther back, painted by medicine men huffing hallucinogenic herbs. The purpose for these totemic abstracts is unclear. While native art worldwide retained its
5 Ways to Avoid Being DiminishedThere's a discussion brewing in comics about artists being more diminished as of late--that readers, reviewers, and publishers are focusing too much on writers rather than the artists who draw the book. I agree it's happening, but I'm not sure it's worth sounding an alarm over. I never felt diminished, but maybe I'm part of the exception. Maybe it's because I'm an artist and a writer.5 Ways to Avoid Being Diminished1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Either way, I do have a few thoughts on what artists can do to pull themselves out from under the rug.
1. DON'T DRAW LIKE A COG.
If you conform to a "house style", then you're at higher risk of being treated like an interchangeable cog in the comics machine. Yes, you're more likely to get consistent work, but you won't stand out as much. Therefor you'll be sought after less by big name writers, you're less likely to make a lasting impression on reviewers and readers, and you'll have a harder time getting raises (12 others draw like you and for less money).
I also suggests inking yourself if it helps. Penc

Cherubun Species Info and Q+AThis is for official information regarding this species. Whether or not you'd like to keep this information true to your adopt is up to you.Cherubun Species Info and Q+A10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Cherubuns are a closed species. I am not claiming I own angelic themes, animal ears and tails, or crystals but this is my version of an angel inspired species. Meaning I don't want to see an exact replica around.
Cherubuns are a fantastical species with fur that resembles angelic wings. They possess arcane crystals on their bodies that are blessings that develop during early childhood. Most have arcane crystals on their ears and tail, giving them talent in sensitive hearing and speed. Some develop rather specific talents-- a crystal on the chest may result in having a beautiful voice for example. However, they must protect their gift: if their crystals were to be completely shattered, their talents will be rescinded.
Simply put they are creatures that are blessed with crystals that enhance a specif
