Link to class--> Start Drawing: Techniques for Pencil Portraits
Seven years ago when I was struggling to learn portraiture, I remember saying to my mom, "When I "get" this, I'm going to teach everyone how to do it!" So here we are, seven years later and I'm ready to share the knowledge I've discovered.
After years of studying with professional portrait artists, lots of reading about how to draw the face, and by studying the works of master artists like Sargent, Bouguereau, Vanderpoel, and Loomis I'm ready to share the most helpful information I

What is a "plz" account?
A "plz" account is a deviantART account where the avatar is an emote that you can use in your journals, comments, etc.
How do you use them?
To use them, write :icon(thenameoftheaccount):
An example is :iconsupertighthugplz: which is written as :icon supertighthug plz: (minus the spaces)
Some popular accounts are:
To get the account name, roll your mouse over the image and copy the text you see beginning with an :icon and ending in a :.

dA adds new CSS attributes Skinners! Must read!Okay, as per the latest dA site update found here. CSS coders are now allowed to use 3 more properties to rock their journal skins.dA adds new CSS attributes Skinners! Must read!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The properties are:
Lets see what can we do with these new fancy stuffs!
What does these attributes do?
1) content--> it is used to insert generated content in your HTML (Journal body for DA). Don't worry, don't worry! I'll tell you what is this "generated" content!
2) counter-increment --> it is used to insert numbers (or counters) to sections or sub-sections. I'll explain what "sections" and "sub-sections" are don't worry again!
3) counter-reset --> it is used to reset the counters
All these 3 properties are generally interlinked and are used together. But the "content" property can be used alone and has some cool usage.

JACKSON POLLOCK: Champion of the New Art
My Jackson Pollock Nine by DarkLinkFire
Just as Dada and surrealism had been the art world’s mocking response to the world’s failed progressive pretensions in response to the anti-human horror of World War I, the art movement that blew up in the wake of World War II’s repeat performance was “abstract expressionism.”

Search for draw this again and you see a meme where deviants are showing their progress through the years. Examples:
Then there's a trend on YouTube where deviants are posting video blogs about their deviantART experiences. I recently caught this one by DomieNeek that I was charmed by. She makes great points, too!
In November we published a Journal on dt's Blog, very discreetly announcing that we've launched a set of API's (Application Programming Interfaces) so that developers out there could make Apps for deviantART.

Not all questions have to be serious, I am looking forward to all kind of questions ;D The questions will be answered in the next edition of the help corner.help corner: Emoticons3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I had the idea for this News article when I recently went through the Tutorial list of Emotication. I normally send deviants to Emotication when they need help to create Emoticons. Now that I went through the list I noticed that many tutorials aren't helpful at all. It is "just" a list with very good but also very bad tutorials.
In the first edition of the help corner I want to share tutorials with you that I find helpful. These don't necessarily reflect my preferences in the emoticon creation process

I mean, really? Most popular Youtuber? What the shit is this madness?
In my opinion, there are really only three Let's Play channels worth watching on Youtube --
666theheartless666, Two Best Friends Play, and MoogleFTW.
Not only does he have to shit all over fantastic horror games like Amnesia and Silent Hill, but he also has to go on and ruin amazing games of other genres, too?! Heavy Rain, Bully, Shadow of the Colossus... Shadow of the Colossus is nothing short of art, and that moron has the balls to refer to Agro as "Abro?" GET IT U GUISE, IT'S A CROSS BETWEEN HER REAL NAME AND "BRO" -- ANOTHER NAME FOR HIS FANS. CLEVER, HUH???
And, oh god, I love Bully to death. But now whenever I search for fanart of it, the results are teeming with shitty drawings of PDP in a school uniform calling Gary a "bitch," among other such ~masterpieces~. Hey, I'm not saying I'm a good artist (far from it!) but

Make sure to take advantage of that Premium Member only feature from time to time.Thursday: A Day in Paradise3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This week, we're having an art creation contest! While we enjoy having different types of contests, it's always fun to have a good, old-fashioned art contest.
The theme for our art contest will be A Day in Paradise!
What does paradise mean to you? Is it a sandy beach, relaxing with a good book? Or is it cliff diving from a tropical oasis into crystal clear water? Or perhaps paradise is on your couch, playing your favorite video games. Whatever paradise is for you, we want to see it!
And the best part? Any medium is accepted! Feel free to take a photo of your paradise, depict it in a traditional piece, write a story about a trip to your own oasis -- it's up to you!

Theme: General Christmas Baking
From holding a recent poll, it seems the majority of you are most interested in baking traditional food for your country/family or food you usually bake over Christmas rather than a set recipe. Therefore I have decided that as long as it is relevant to Christmas in some way, shape or form in recipe, flavour or presentation it will be considered as an entry.
Rules and requirements:
You must include Christmas into your baking, decorating or surroundings in some shape or form.
If what you you usually make isn't very Christmasy looking or tasting

Follow me, the way they've told you to be seen
Follow me, and we'll meddle with the stars
Can you believe your jumped-up heroes to be thieves?
Still you long to kiss their apathetic hearts
Everything I need is everything that's killing me
And everything I hear is everything that fed to me
Everything I feel is everything I'm told to be
Everything I see is everything I'm led to believe
Follow me as we soar across this wayward sea
Or there you'll stand, divided from the stars
From what I see there's barely a true soul to reap
Deliberate or sleepwalk through reality
Everything I need everything that's killing me
And everything I hear is everything that's fed to me

Each published deviant (or category, as needed) is highlighted with a star. Their accomplishments are listed in black bullet point for easy location. New deviants should appear toward the top of the page, and new listings for deviants already here will appear at the top of their individual lists. All new entries will be tagged with a shiny label for easy location. Having trouble finding one of your favorites? Try Ctrl+F, then type the name of your deviant. Still can't find them?

Take your time, look these over, and if you enjoyed any of this, be kind enough to leave a review on their page. Reviews are one of the things that bring in more readers. Remember, writers need all the support (and traffic) they can get. If you know a deviant who published their work, drop me a link, and I'l
