ANNOUNCEMENT - Winter Contest: Jack FrostANNOUNCEMENT - Winter Contest: Jack Frost1 year ago in Personal More Like This
CHECK OUT THE FULL POST AND DETAILS ON OUR CONCEPT COOKIE POST HERE!
SUBJECT: Jack Frost
The Winter Contest has arrived. Welcome to the first contest to bring in the new year with on Concept Cookie starring Jack Frost! He is said to be the personification of crisp, cold weather. He originated long ago throughout tales to personify winter. There are different takes on the folklore surrounding him around the world. In Russia he is known as Father Frost or in Germany, he is rather Old Mother Frost. In American folklore, Jack Frost is depicted as younger and kind yet mischievous. He has the ability to control and create winter conditions, most notably, he creates the icy flake patterns on windows. Now is your chance to capture this winter spirit in a concept.
So with the story and idea of who Jack Frost is, you as a concept artist are gi

So I've been thinking about writing this for awhile, and recently I noticed a lot of people are commenting in ways that can make the artist feel uncomfortable.
This journal is about commenting etiquette.
If you comment like this I'm not mad. Please don't feel like im targeting anyone or anything- it's just something I've noticed a ton of people do.
to start out, I'd like to show you some of the types of comments I see A LOT
the self-pity comment
"This is really pretty. I'll never be able to draw like this I'm awful at drawing"
this is the most awkward way to get attention- the artist feels pressured to give you attention and compliment you. This can be super hard on the artist.
INSTEAD, make it positive!
"This is really pretty.

everyone look at this and appreciate my janitorSo for the past few weeks my school janitor has been drawing on our cafeteria's whiteboard to remind kids to clean up after themselves. Apparently his drawings got really popular online, which makes me really happy for him! Perhaps you've already seen these pictures, or maybe not, but regardless, I will post them here and make you look at them again. >u>everyone look at this and appreciate my janitor2 years ago in Personal More Like This
One Two Three
There have been many misinterpretations regarding the drawings that I've read...most being along the lines of, "Those kids probably don't know those characters", "Those are at a high school? Why aren't they vandalized?", and, "This janitor probably doesn't even get appreciated".
Contest: The Lost BBA PageEdit: Thank you to everyone who has entered so far. The entries look great! its very fun to read them. Im going to be judging and posting entries and results Sunday (9th) evening. So, if youre putting finishing touches on your entry - please try to get it to me before then!Contest: The Lost BBA Page1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Making comics is fun, and everybody can do it, but sometimes a long epic story can be daunting, so maybe you keep putting off starting a comic. How about some practice on a 1 page scene?
Was there ever a scene you thought would be cool and really wanted to be in the BBA comic?
Illustrate a 1 page scene that takes place in the BBA world and has at least 1 BBA character in it. The plot, medium and style are entirely up to you. You may incorporate your own OCs into it too. Absolutely no experience necessary, it's even better if you've never attempted a comic page before!
To enter, please send me a note with subject "contest entry" linking me to your comic.
Deadline will February 7th.

Rita cerro los ojos con fuerza tratando de mentalizarse, respiro hondo, pero antes de que pudiera dar un salto, la pequeña y frágil piedra de la que se encontraba sostenida se soltó haciéndola caer, soltó un grito de miedo, y cerro los ojos con fuerza, pero para su sorpresa cuando los abrió y miro hacia arri

Duped.Fake CommissionDuped.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Recently I found out that one of the commissions I undertook a while back was, in fact, a setup. It was hired by forum members of Encyclopedia Dramatica, one of whom I actually use to talk to and have good discussions with. They pooled their resources to pay for it, sent me the info and money, and then proceeded to sit back and document everything I did or didn’t do per their highly specific criterias. The user in question then posting a lengthy take-down (though through a disclaimer on the top of the journal it’s clearly not a takedown! lulz!) here on DA.
Here is the commission:
The journal in question talks at great length about my seemingly lack of transparency. IE: that I don’t communicate every little facet of what I’m doing to them, such as the number of commissions I have, what my “job” is, what my home schedule is like, etc. And honestly? This is WHY I’m not transpar

Invitation to Curate
Gallery by Mumtazzaidi
Someone once said that the decision of where to direct one’s eyes is the most important decision in photography.
That could apply to all art. Throughout the course of a day, we are exposed to thousands of pieces of content. How do we discern what is important, what is pleasing and relevant? How do we present what matters to us, and focus attention on those aspects that matter?
Curation is more than packaging
My favorites and stocks that I recommend ( part 1)These are galleries that I have in my favorites because I do not usually look at stocks that are on the popular Deviantart because I always see pictures stolen and porn (see tips here ) then for me not to see these things, I use only the stocks that I have in my watchersMy favorites and stocks that I recommend ( part 1)10 months ago in Art Features More Like This

Best Stock Uses 2013At the end of each year I like to do a review to remind myself of all the awesome images which my stock has helped to create, picking out a few of the best to share and show-off. If your artwork is below, then I think it is absolutely stunning. You have my respect and admiration!Best Stock Uses 20131 year ago in Art Features More Like This

2012 in game reviewsHappy New Year everyone! I hope you've had a good year, and that the next one will be better!2012 in game reviews2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't really have a new year's resolution, but one thing I did mean to do last year was write up a few game reviews for some of the more interesting games I tried out this year.
So I'll get onto that now! Here's my list of favourite and fail-vorite (that should totally be a word. Possibly for something that fails so hard you love it) games of the year!
...and also favourite games of years gone by, as I'm including a number of games from past years that I only just got around to playing. It's well within your rights to complain loudly at my failure as a human being to be only just playing these games this year, but it's also within my rights to ignore the hell out of you if you do.
So without further ado!

Collection: Swimming PoolsCollection: Swimming Pools3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
A series of private pools suggests the 1968 Burt Lancastar film, “The Swimmer,” (based on a John Cheever story) in which a man decides to swim a “river” of backyard swimming pools in an affluent neighborhood to make his way home. Along the way, encounters with his neighbors produce a soul–crushing epiphany that he is not nearly the beloved, respected, successful man he had deluded himself into believing.

It was banned in America in 1915, but distillation and sale resumed in USA and Europe in the 1990s. It’s a spirit produced from the flowers and leaves of the wormwood plant. Anise, fennel and other “medicinal herbs” are blended in according to secret formulas of different distillers. Who drank absinthe? Hemingway, Baudelaire, Verlaine, Rimbaud, Toulouse–Lautrec, Van Gogh, Modigliani, Picasso, Oscar Wilde and occultist Aleister Crowley. Why were writers, poets and painters so ardent for this drink? Its secret is trace amounts of terpene thujone, reputed to induce clarity of

The year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20. The passing comet “Tempel-Tuttle” leaves a debris field of meteoroid particles in its wake each year that the Earth will spin through on those nights. Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet. The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati

_MINA!_ gritaron los cinco al ya no sentir el peso de su amiga, se asomaron a la grieta, empezaron a gritar su nombre repetidas veces sin éxito, temieron lo peor hasta que…
_ESTOY BIEN!_ escucharon desde el fondo de la grieta. Al soltarse, pensó que estaba en una caída de aproximadamente diez metros, grande fue su sorpresa al sentir el frio y nada suave suelo de la nada, se levantó con dificultad, su brazo derecho dolía, justo sobre el cual había caído, levanto la mirada, aun alcanzaba a ver las siluetas de sus amigos, la caída había sido de solo 2 metros y medio, comenzó el recorrer la cueva, el piso estaba perfectamente parejo y pulido, pudo ver el libro a medio metro de donde se encontraba, lo sostuvo con su brazo sano…
