I'm especially honoured to announce that May's Artist of the month award goes to the incredible artist Gasara!May's Manga and Anime Artist of the Month: Gasara!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Ever since I met Laura I fell in love with her art! Her style is simply fascinating, filled with magic and charming characters! Stalking her art gave me the chance to get to know her a little bit and she's a very sweet and helpful person, offering resources to pretty up your profiles, giving words of help and support, creating tutorials for growing artists...
All in all, Laura is a wonderful artist and deviant, totally deserving of being May's Manga and Anime Artist of the Month!!
Getting to know Gasara a bit!

1. Happy Holidays and Merry New Year
As the old year begins to fade into the sunset, it is customary to reflect on the passing year and make plans for the upcoming one. Some do this in the form of resolutions, some people make action plans, some people just swing into the new year the same way they swung out of the old one Whatever way you intend to welcome in 2013, I hope you're surrounded by love and that you do it safely!
I've been reflecting on the year and like many, with some focus on the unimaginable events of the last few weeks. Specifically, the shooting in Newtown. I know that it's "human nature" to want to find
Studio GhibliA Tokyo based animation studio that needs no introduction! Studio Ghibli is best known for their traditionally animated anime films. It was originally founded by the legendary pair, Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, back in 1985. Ghibli is named after an Italian war plane that was used for scouting, this reflected Miyazaki's love for not only airplanes but also Italy. The name itself means "hot wind blowing through the Sahara Desert".Studio Ghibli2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Takahata and Miyazaki
It was formed after the great success of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, which both Takahata and Miyazaki worked on. Their first feature film hit was Laputa, or some of you may know it as Castle in the Sky. Most of the films that Studio Ghibli produces is by Miyazaki, followed by Takahata, although they have worked with other film producers and directors as well.

Advanced Typography by LabLayers
Hey Devious CSSkinners!
A great part of making an appealing web design, whether its a Website or a Journal article skin, is the Typography. Fonts play a big role in this. Many websites and journal skins had to resort to using common typefaces that were installed on all machines. With CSS3, several websites use the @font-face property to implement the font file in their web pages. As this feature is not available for Journal skins, there is another way to use fancy fonts that dA has allowed to integrate into Journal Skins (it's not yet available for use
PE: Self Suggesting Daily DeviationsSelf SuggestingPE: Self Suggesting Daily Deviations2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Members are more than welcome to self suggest their own art work for a Daily Deviation, in fact many CVs highly encourage self suggestions. While self suggesting may have been something people frowned upon in the past, this is thankfully no longer the case as we all recognize the need for self promotion in the competitive world of art.
But suggesting my own work is embarassing
There is no shame in trying to get yourself and your work seen. By self suggesting you are merely looking to gain more exposure from a broader audience. Look at it this way, if you're not willing to advertise your own work and get more clients and exposure, who will?
When we CVs receive self suggestions we treat them the same as we would any other suggestion so you can easily treat a self suggestion the same as you would a submission of your art to a group so more users can see the piece. While we do not guarantee that we
PE: Breaking Into ChatroomsI realize the title of this article may sound a bit strange so let me clarify that I will not be teaching you how to hack chatrooms or the like. No, no, we won't be burglarizing them either (is that even possible? ). Today I'd like to talk about how to have a positive first experience when joining the chats here on deviantART. While we have many users who chat on dAmn daily with great experiences, sometimes it can be difficult to find your own place in the chats and make your experiences there positive. I will go over what I feel are main topics/points which every new chatter can benefit from knowing about as well as include a few tips on how to make your chat experience positive.PE: Breaking Into Chatrooms2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Eadweard MuybridgeSo Eadweard Muybridge, why should all animators know his name? He is an English photographer who moved over to America. So what is a photographer doing in our Film, Animation and Flash month?Eadweard Muybridge2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Well his photography is really quite unique for the time, he set up multiple cameras for his shots in order to capture motion in the form of stop-action photography. He was also known for creating the zoopraxiscope, which plays a series of images in order to create the illusion of motion, in other words very early animation work! These series of images were on disc that were spun and projected, so the images loop in sequence. Kind of like your first generation animated gifs!
His photography work and his zoopraxiscope helped people to study in detail how things move. From the way people walk, jumping, running through to horses galloping. And as a tutor once said to me, if you can animate a horse, you can animate anything. These images surprised many people, such as when a horse runs, there is a pha
How to stop procrastinating!Do you always seem to postpone your tasks? Or you know that you have to do a task but you're just too lazy/don't have time for it? Do you have the tendency to do things in the last minute? Or do you have problems with managing your time? Then, this journal might be for you. This journal is written and exclusively meant for the topic of "procrastination". Although it is an intended self-help journal, it will not work if you're not putting work or applying these tips in real life.

1. Miscellaneous vs Other
Over the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories. While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other". The reason for this change is simple. The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree. We're also working on u

5%If you're reading this now, it means you're roughly in the 5%. Most people who go online to read about comics will end up reading previews and "top 10" lists--subjects we all, or course, enjoy. But the articles/blogs that critically analyze our industry are usually only read by two types: people in the biz whom are affected by this stuff, and the few readers who are interested in reading more than word balloons when it comes to comics.5%3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I'm not knocking people who don't care to read these articles. All readers are contributing to the industry with their buying power, and I'm thankful for them, even if they're not in the 5%. I admit, if I had a normal 9-5 job and a boss that was kicking my ass 5 days a week, I might not have the tolerance for these sorts of articles either.
That being said, I think we need more of these articles/blogs written from different points of view--more from creators especially. The 2010s will likely be r

You really want to, you've worked hard to develop the skills you have and you enjoy every minute of doing what you love. And besides, people say that your artworks are...nice. Cute. Doesn't that count for something? Sure it does, there is no reason to panic and pointlessly push yourself forward. Enjoy your coffee break!
Besides, even if you didn't like the current level as much, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it at the moment. So many unfortunate happenings stand right between you and your dream. Recognizing any of the following?
1 - You don't have the time
You're right! After all, you are a human being, not a machine, waking up early every morning, heading to school/work, afterwards taking care of the household/kids/your homework, studying, you barely even finish all the tasks during the 24 hours that's been given to everyone.

On my profile page, I feature a new deviation every day (or two or three). The piece is usually something that caught my eye. Could be an amazing digital painting, a fun stamp, a quick photograph that made me smile, perhaps a piece for a weekly theme, whatever. However, it moved me enough to share it with my visitors.

So I was looking through my god awful gallery the other day and had a nostalgic moment when I saw some of my old artworks, I am happy to say that I have improved over the 5 years stay here on Deviantart (Thank god...). So I just want to show you a few of my earlier artworks and talk a little about the story behind each one of them. I must admit that the early artworks you see on this list is not REALLY the first few artworks I uploaded on Deviantart, but I have since got rid of my even older ones because I really really dislike them, I don't want you guys to vomit blood ok.
