What is a Daily Deviation?
The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
The staff/volunteer members responsible for selecting submissions for the daily feature often are open to suggestions and individual community members may direct their attention by noting the appropriate Community Volunteer or staff member with a direct link to the deviation which you are suggesting and a brief description about why you think the work in question should be featured.
How To Suggest a Daily Deviation:
-Find a deviation on deviantART that you would like to see feat
Creative Commons on DeviantArt - ExplainedI'd like to give everyone a little bit of information about the Creative Commons options on DeviantArt. Seeing as we are a Creative Commons group, it's very important for everyone here to understand how these licenses work.Creative Commons on DeviantArt - Explained5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most people just click the little radio button that says "use a creative commons license" and have done with it, but DeviantArt allows as little sharing as possible and is the very opposite of the intent of Creative Commons. If you leave the default settings on then your work will be very limited and not available in the free culture community. Since here, picking the right license is important, we encourage you to think about what you want to allow and change some of the default options.
The general gist of how the deviantArt creative commons buttons work in relation to your art is this:
- "Use a creative commons license" allows people to copy your work and share it, perhaps online or with their friends offline. With only this option submitted, your work may

The Green Fairy Takes Flight Again
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

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.”

I manage to contact zephleit through his personal email and this is what he said (I copy and paste as it is)
Hello. I'm so glad you managed to contact me. I was so shocked, even until now...
dA banned my account because of a single picture that I made 2 years ago was considered "explicit" despite the fact that tagged it mature and has censorship to conform with dA's policies. This sucks even more because it all happened on my birthday. Thanks, dA, for such a wonderful gift. To those curious, I'm sorry, I don't have the picture in question...
The good news is... I plan on creating a new account soon. I have already filed an appeal to dA to lift my ban because I believe that my ban was unfair and that I was judged wholly and banned indefinitely based on that single pic alone. It would take a while so I don't want to create a new account yet. I want to wait for the results. So let's all

FacebookHi guys,Facebook2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I can't upload any proper painting for a while so I opened a page on Facebook to upload some of my doodle. ( which is too rough to be uploaded to DA lol )
Here's the link if you're interested
All of my painting will still be uploaded to DA and my Pixiv, and I will share it on the page once there is a new update.
By the way some people are asking the difference between my DA and Pixiv
I uploaded all of my artworks to both sites, but some of them are not in pixiv since I'm too lazy to upload my old painting there lol
Usually my pixiv site will have the uncensored version of the pic, you will need an account to view my artwork there.

Yeap, I received these notes a lot reporting me about my Free! being sold by amazon's irresponsible seller in here.
I honestly cant do anything. It's a fanart, and I don't own the series. but it's my drawing, so it's really complicated.
but for those who saw this work and being blind for thinking its official or something. then, please do not buy. >_>"a its our work.
Upset? yeah. but I'm too busy to deal with this. I prefer to keep productive and create more works (which is hardly happened. lol)
But Hey, If I'm promoting it here, means I'm opening big chance for them to sold it quickly, haha. So i really don't have any clue what to do about it.
Thanks so much for fans and friends who noted and reminds me about this, i really appreciate it.
But for me, I don't care anymore, feel free to get the hijack version. or you can get original

So you wanna be an artist?Hello fellow deviants. So, looking to be a better artist? Wanna improve? Well I got some tips for you. Drawing is fairly easy, really. It just takes greater skill to draw something good. It takes time and patience. Lots of practice will help you greatly! I've been drawing since 4 years old. 17 years later, here I am continuing to draw because I have a passion for art. I've always loved art. If you wanna be an artist, you gotta have that passion, that need to draw. Remember now that it takes lots of time and patience. Lots of studying will help. It's all skill. If you are not proud of what you drew, don't bring yourself down. Just look at the mistakes and tell to yourself, how can I improve? Practice, practice, practice. It makes better. Look around for inspiration, it's everywhere. I remember coming upon my favorite artists' works and thinking, I'll never be that good. But don't let that sadden you. Just work hard, put a lot of effort into your drawings. If you don't have patience, whySo you wanna be an artist?1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Advice for Aspiring Artists Pt. 1So this has been on my mind a bit lately and I was just struck with the sudden urge to write about it. It's a bit long so I've broken it in to three parts, but if you're a beginning artist I would recommend reading through it, it might just get you aimed in the right direction.Advice for Aspiring Artists Pt. 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
This started a couple days ago when I was trolling facebook and someone had posted some artwork, and one of the comments was something along the lines of "Nice! What tutorial did you use for this?" which prompted an immediate and violent facedesk on my part. I hear things like this all the time and would like to help dispel some myths about learning art; so after 9 years of drawing and 3 years of hardcore education and study, here's what I've learned about how to get better at art:
WISDOM NUMBER ONE! Getting better demands consistent, hard work. That's it. That's the magical secret that great artists never seem to get to in their tutorials; it's that one pivotal thing that makes the difference between

Just Tell the Fucking StoryOkay, so I saw this journal that contained a number of tips, including a detailed section on 'show don't tell,' and I had an epiphany. There was an 'Oh' and everything so you know it's legit.Just Tell the Fucking Story2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
For a while now I have wondered why amateur writers write the most mind-numbingly long descriptions that I could not care about even a little (yes, my attention span is short, why'd you think I put in so many GIFs? but anyway, I'm a bit atypical there). I mean, I don't want the 'flames of burning searing pain of the aching broken heart' all up in my grill. I'd genuinely prefer a 'he hated her after the break up.' That's all I need to know about that? Good. Move on.
And that's the 'oh' moment: when people tell you to show not tell, they always fail to mention 'pacing.'
Look, there are times when it's best to convey a mood. His trembling fingers reach for the full glass, her voice an angry buzz in the back of his mind--I'd consider that a reasonable establishing shot. But if you're halfway t
