As quite a few of you have probably noticed from reply spam, I've been busy trying to catch up with all those outstanding comments from people who have used my stock, I'm happy (and relieved) to say the end is in sight, as I currently have only about 400 comments dating from 2013 to get through, your patience with me has been very much appreciated
As ever, this is just a small selection from the many many hundreds of pieces of artwork that has been made with my stock each year. Some of these are from 2012, and some from 2013 that caught my eye as I was browsing my faves gallery this afternoon.
You can browse through the entire collection here - 2013 Stock Use Collection 2012 Stock Use Collection honestly its worth a look for the sheer variety and imagination on display, an

I received quite a lot of deviations! Pretty amazing ones I must say!
What I like is when there is a story behind the artwork! For example: the photo turned out exactly how we planned or you tried out water colours for the first time and oyu loved it!
Here are some of my Favourites form the thread, I will keep it open so you can show me more amazing stuff!

PE: Defining Community ProjectsDefining Community ProjectsPE: Defining Community Projects2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Today we are going to take a look at what exactly a Community Project is and hopefully dispell some misconceptions about them. Our group CRCommunityProjects has a great blurb explaining what Community Projects are that I'd like to quote here:
A community project is a project or contest that is designed by community members to promote a positive, supportive environment here on deviantART. Community projects build community spirit and help all of us to grow as artists and as individuals. They have specific goals and serve to bring people together. These projects are supportive of artists and of artistic growth and provide a stepping-stone to help people achieve their goals.
Community projects can be large or small. They may span multiple galleries and media, or they may be focused on just one. They could even be focused on forums or chats!
I think the blurb above gives a great general overview of what a community project

UserStyles: Lesson IBecause there is so much interest in UserStyles but not enough people who actually work on such or know how to create them, this little tutorial series will try to change that. It will start with the basics, will explain all the things you need to know and will also give you little tasks, you can do, to become more involved.UserStyles: Lesson I1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
What is a 'UserStyle'?
When we go to the User Style category it is not quite clear what a User Style really is. Buried under the massive amount of miscats there are only a few right deviations.
Opposite to what the name might suggests it is not about the style of a certain user. It does not mean that the category can be used to show the world how much you improved, the way you dress, the way you draw or anything else like that.
A UserStyle is pure CSS code and only that. Nothing more, nothing less.
It is called like that because it is a style that changes the appearance of a website for the person using it - the user. So bas

Eyyyup... Still no internet and now I'm sick x__x
Too much stress I guess...
That means I can't upload from home and - because I'm sick - I can't upload from work either.
Nontheless... I've visited my parents today to give you this information (and submit my latest stuff to my stash).
I'll use the "schedule" option from dA to submit my stuff automatically to my page during the week.
So please don't wonder that I don't comment on anything...
There will be no connections between the pages either - You know... "FIRST", "PREVIOUS" and "NEXT".
(Please do me a favour and inform the ponies who asking for the connections below my pages. Thanks x__x)
I'll do this as soon as I'm back to health and with this back to work or...
If I get internet back...
Tomorrow the 3rd technician will visit me and check what the 2nd technician did...

Alright, It's time to announce the rules and regulations for our Halloween contest!
Obviously, the theme is Halloween.
But, there will be certain things that we will be looking for:
1. Great Color Palette- We want it bright and colorful!
2. If you go horror, go all the way- guts, brains, we will love to see it
3. We would love to see your dark side- want to be a bit twisted? Go for it, within reason of course
(I mean, I don't want to see decapitated babies, omg, I'd cry)
4. We want to see something original. Yeah, cannon characters and stories are great, but we want to see YOU!
5. We want to see that you had fun with it!
Now, I know that there are those of you out there that are better with a pen than a brush (or whatever it is you do art with XD), so, we have a little something for you as well

PE: How to use Stamps (Even without a Premium)How to use StampsPE: How to use Stamps (Even without a Premium)2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In this tutorial I will teach you how to use stamps! Stamps are a very fun way to decorate your page and show your personality, your likes, your dislikes, etc! And you don't even have to be a premium member to do so!
Okay, so let's first figure out how to even get stamps on your page in the first place, shall we?
First thing you should do is find the thumb code on the deviation page, which can be found here (scroll down some to get there):
And then copy and paste the thumb code to where you want to have it on your profile!
This works pretty much anywhere on your page where you can put text, even if you do not have a premium membership.
For non-premium users, you can place stamps in the following places:

Points for Critiques!Hey guys! for those who don't know, I've been learning to paint for 4 months now. I want to learn as fast as I can from all you pros on here, so I thought I'd start something like an ongoing contest to give away points and help me improve.Points for Critiques!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm giving away points to people who critique my work. Each new deviation of mine will be open for critiques in its comments section, and there will be 3 prizes totalling 140 points per painting:
First Critique - 20
Best Critique - 100 Random Critique or Comment - 20
The 'First Critique' prize goes to the first critique, unless it's really short (i.e. less than 100 words, say). All 3 prizes will be sent and announced in the comments section of the deviation roughly 1 week after the deviation's submission date - and then the contest will close for that deviation. The 'Random Critique' prize can be won by anyone (even if you gave a very short critique or just a helpful comm
