PixieColdBorn in Berlin, Germany, Svenja Jödicke (AKA PixieCold), has established herself as an incredible artist. Painting with watercolors, inks, and markers on watercolor paper, she's able to create a surreal world filled with nature goddesses and vibrant colors and patterns.PixieCold1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
All deviations featured are available as Prints.
Eyes have always been focus of her artwork, as "they are able to tell unspoken stories."
Besides her work with watercolor, PixieCold started experimenting with makeup and photography as well, using real insects (live and dead) in her work.

PE: Anime/Manga - Digital ArtGallery MonthPE: Anime/Manga - Digital Art5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello everyone! Welcome to the Anime & Manga half of this week!
Today Gwendolyn12 and me are going to explain the different categories of the Anime & Manga Gallery.
Since this Gallery has 2 different main categories the Gallery Overview is split in 2 articles.
In my article I will explain you our Digital Media category including the sub-categories. The Traditional Media category will be explained later by Gwendolyn12!
What is Anime & Manga?
Anime is based of the word Animation. These are Japanese animated productions usually featuring hand-drawn or computer animations. When you talk about an Animation in Manga style. That's Anime.
But what is Manga? With Manga you mainly mean a comic book created in Japan. But this word is used for regula
How to make friends on deviantARTThis is a remake of an old journal I made, but it seems like it's happening a lot around here again, so I'll be reiterating and adding more things to it here! Feel free to link anyone to this journal if they're attempting to force friendship on you or are just going about things in the wrong way, and need a little nudge in the right direction.How to make friends on deviantART2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There /is/ a RIGHT WAY and a WRONG WAY to try to make friends!
Have you ever been asked by someone randomly, "Can we be friends?" ? Or perhaps someone simply acts as if you are their best friend, even when you don't know them. They may comment to others talking about you a lot, or call you by a nickname that only your friends use, write journals about you, send tons of notes or comments to you, "mention" you all the time, jump into your conversations with someone else, or perhaps make a lot of buddy-buddy fan-art that makes you uncomfortable?
This is a message for those kinds of people.
Friendship is not

Comments and Commenting We all know that getting the exposure you want for your work is a tough endeavour here on dA. Despite the wonders of the site, the simple fact of the matter is that comments are hard to come by these days.Comments and Commenting1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
There may be many reasons for this - lack of time on the part of many browsers, lack of interest, or simply: not knowing what to say. We've all been there at one point (some of us more than others), and it presented the question - "what is it that writers want out of a comment?"
The only way to find the answer to this question was to set up a poll - which received an amazing response from the lit community, and with your help, this editorial will highlight some points that will aid in leaving some insightful and appreciated comments.
First and foremost - Read.
Many of the writers on dA want f
Breaking in to Lit!IntroductionBreaking in to Lit!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Literature has long been considered one of the closest knit communities on deviantART. As a result, some people find it difficult to "break in" to the Lit crowd. There are rumors of elitism, difficulty in getting exposure, and lack-luster appreciation for the incredible work that goes into writing a good piece of prose or a well structured poem.
If you look at a painting you can see amazing detail, great use of color, and the importance of the subject immediately. You know it came from the artist's imagination and that he or she had to spend hours translating that to a canvas. The tangibility of the work is right in front of you. With writing, it is not quite the same. The effort the author puts into the work can only be appreciated if readers put in their own effort to read the work. The gratification is not instant, which is one reason the lit community is so close knit.
Those who do have large followings often also comment and read quite a lot of work h
