Artisan Crafts Feature: KnivesWhen I was looking at the artisan crafts gallery I noticed a beautiful knife and that lead me into the world of knives here on dA - there are so many, made in so many different ways that it was really difficult to choose which categories to use and which knives to use in them - hopefully you will enjoy these as much as I did.Artisan Crafts Feature: Knives2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

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 Commenting9 months 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.

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

Salaam, Bombay!EXTREME STREET PHOTOGRAPHY - IXSalaam, Bombay!9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Are there places were street photography is impossible? Are there countries easier than others, or harder than others? How is it street shooting like in exotic places, or places you never visited, places that are completely different from what you are used to? I asked a few street photographers around the world to share with us their experiences.
This interview is with Adam Thomas, aka :iconjadedphotographer: , from Mumbai.
How is street photography like, in Mumbai?
Personally, I find it really difficult to shoot street. I don't blend in too well and I'm paranoid in general.
Mumbai is a huge city with a lot of heritage sites and landmarks. Lots of subjects to shoot as there are homeless and hawkers on every street signal. The main disadvantage is the very high crime rate and corrupt cops. I try to be as discreet as possible. I prefer the fly on a wall method of st

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.

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.
