Feature: Stories with no wordsAn image is worth a thousand storiesFeature: Stories with no words3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
OmeN2501, creator of the following deviation, Rain, says in the artist comments:
"Story behind it is pretty simple, they want something form her, she cannot let them have it... no matter the cost"
Who is she?
Now the viewer is left with a series of questions... Who is she? Who is pursuing her? What do they want from her? Why is this thing so important she's willing to take her own life if that means they won't have it? What would happen if they get it? And most importantly; what circumstances lead the pieces of this story up to this point?
The answers to these questions are left open to the viewer. It's up to you to decide who she is.
Themed Feature #21 - HalloweenSorry late feature Wednesday night my daughter (8 month old) had a fever, couldn't move her neckThemed Feature #21 - Halloween2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
well and was fussy, looking miserable we decided to take her to the ER around midnight Wednesday night/Thursday morning turned
out she had a double ear infection which caused her lymph nodes to swell in her neck and her fever to stay between 99-102 degrees.
Got antibiotic shot and prescription for two weeks and went and got her some baby acetaminophen... So that was her first Halloween
lol but all this is lasting days and today sunday she is starting to act herself again..not completely but she's doing much better..I was
so worried first serious moment for our little family. I even took off work saturday missing 12 hours of pay but I needed to stay
home with her instead of my dad watching her a) she doesn't feel well and probably just wants mommy or daddy b) my dad has cancer
and probably wouldn't be up for taking care of her and the medicine

More Critical Thoughts on Art School + Career PathHey everyone, thanks for the info on San Francisco for those who live in / near there. It's a big thing for me to still be thinking about, so I'll definitely be coming in for a visit before I make any final decisions.More Critical Thoughts on Art School + Career Path3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Elsewhere, I've been meaning to do a short rant dealing with how I feel retrospectively having gone to art school. I've talked about having gone before, and I've given some advice about choosing a school that's right for you should you choose to go. But you know, having been out for a couple years now, there are a few glaring problems I see not just from the school I attended, but apparently from many schools nationwide. And this deals with offering students a clear path of study for the often specialized career they are looking to get into. Areas of art such as (concept) design, animation, comics/storyboarding/sequential, full-time freelance, and all-over jobs related to working in industry-level professional positions, or in a teamwork-oriented studio setting.

Q.: When did you start drawing?
A.: I started drawing when I was a little child, I think when I was about 2 or 3 years old. Art has been my passion ever since I can remember. I started drawing digitally in the summer of 2009, when I got my tablet and Photoshop for my 15th birthday.
Q.: Who/What inspired you to start drawing or to not stop drawing?
A.: My mother was the one, who placed some sheets of paper and some colored pencils next to me, so she was the one, who got me into drawing. I also had several good friends, who liked art as much as I do and my older sister :iconPixieCold: is a passionate artist herself. Art kinda is a tradition in our family, because
How art tutoring should be nowadaysYes. Another one of my rants that starts with a personal experience.How art tutoring should be nowadays2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was a day like any other, and I was just surfing DeviantArt, browsing the many deviations in my inbox. While I did so, my eye wandered to something that was called an 'tutorial on manga anatomy'. As usual, I was curious about the content. And as the preview image was pretty small, I wanted to check this out. It seems like this girl, let's name her Abbey (it's not her real name, but I think calling her 'that girl' is so damn confusing) had made a tutorial on male manga anatomy. Nothing wrong with that, you'd say. But I've been following Abbey for a while already. I originally met her in the forums, asking for feedback on one of her fanart drawings. Mostly anatomy related stuff. I gave her some tips. We talked a bit. And I followed her soon after, as I thought her art looked pretty promising altogether.
Now, I didn't know Abbey in real life. But she was a beginning artist, nowhere towards a level

Friday, Day 2 of Comic-ConComic-Con Veterans know there's an ebb and flow of patrons as the week progresses. While Preview Night can be frenzied with excitement for the con to come, there's also a notable saving of energy, knowing that the scant few hours of the first day will be nothing compared to the full-day smorgasbord for the remaining 4 days of the week. Thursday seems even more crazed by comparison, but of course, not all con-goers can get a weekday off. By Friday, electricity is buzzing in the air as cosplayers bust out their second outfit, comic-lovers bust out their second wallets, and area convenience stores are running dangerously low on comfy insoles and 5-Hour Energy Drinks.Friday, Day 2 of Comic-Con2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

PE: How to Advertise CommissionsHow to: Advertise CommissionsPE: How to Advertise Commissions2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Many deviants offer commissions, but how do you effectively advertise them? This article will go over some methods for maximizing the exposure on your commissions so that they can be as successful as possible.
This is the one method I cannot stress enough. Commission Widgets are one of the most effective ways to advertise your commissions because they not only feature your commissions on your profile page, but also add them to the searchable database of dA's Commission Page. Numerous deviants use the Commission Page to find artists to hire, so it is a smart idea to add yourself to the database.
However, simply slapping a commission widget onto your page is not enough. You need to make your commissions as appealing as possible through the following steps:
