Along with our week of crafty education, we'll be having a crafty contest! We wanted to have something that involved collaboration, which can be difficult in a physical medium like Artisan Crafts. So we put our crafty heads together and came up with a way for us to create something together. We're going to craft a cupcake bakery!
Here's one we prepared earlier:
With the power of photoshop we're going to combine your crafted bakeries and crafted cupcakes into an AC collab of tasty proportions. Here's how it's going to work:
Part 1: Craft A Bakery
For the first part of the challenge, we're looking for people to craft the bakery background. You need to create

Getting popular in deviantARTSo, the other day, someone (I am not going to say who) sent me a message which read something like this:Getting popular in deviantART1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"Hey Mr. Popular,
Before replying to the person's message, I asked why did he call me "Mr. Popular". He replied back saying because almost everyone knows me in dA.
I was kinda set aback. Am I really known to everyone? I replied back to him saying that I do not think at all that I am popular and I do not think everyone knows me apart from a handful of them.
Then I asked myself after I had replied to that person, "When would I be calling myself popular then? and How would I measure that I am popular?"
May be when
1) Atleast 10% of 27 million deviants in dA would know me
2) I have say about 100,000+ watchers
3) I have thousands of favs and comments on my deviations
I leave this discussion open. And would like to get your views in this.
Question to you: When do you think you would be eligible to call yourself popular?

Lit. Daily Pick Volume 12: December 2013At the start of the new year, I promised myself that I would be giving back to the literature community here on deviantArt again like I used to. Before I began university, I was able to help admin groups that featured deviants on a daily or weekly basis, and I missed having the time and opportunity to help lesser known deviants have their chance to shine. Now that I've finally graduated, I decided upon a small project that I hope to be able to keep up with: My Lit. Daily Pick Project.Lit. Daily Pick Volume 12: December 20131 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
What is my Lit. Daily Pick Project?
Every day, I choose one literature deviation that I have recently come across that I found to exceptionally stand out to me. That deviation remains featured on my page for 24 hours in my daily pick folder for any watcher or visitor to see and hopefully view, comment, or fave. At the end of the month, all of the deviations that I chose to feature are then featured in an art news journal together. The purpose of this daily feature is to help lesser k

I mostly like pixels art and icons but other kind of picture would be fine too.
I can pay in points or do trades.
Let me know your commission prices or let me know if you would be interested in a trade ^^
(but I'm much less likely to accept trades)
I am not going to ask you to draw a specific character, you can choose which one you would prefer to draw:
PE: Traditional ShadingTraditional ShadingPE: Traditional Shading10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello. This is iDJPanda on the topic of shading!
When I usually start into the shading process of something, I always struggle to see which kind of technique I can use to give the piece of art the type of wow that I want. But just like anything, there are MANY ways to do it! This can help you use different shading techniques for different textures. I'm gonna give you a few different ways you can shade (Try to shake it up! ). If you have any other ways you shade, please feel free to tell me!
One of my favorite, in this technique of shading, you go against what all elementary teachers told you. You scribble! When you shade like this, you'll come out with something that looks like this.
Using circular motions, you generate different shades. Spending more time, swirling makes the certain areas you want darker, and the less you swirl makes the other areas lighter.
omgI was trying out Krita (a free drawing software) brushes, and had the biggest surprise to see this:omg10 months ago in Personal More Like This
At first I was like "woah, this looks so much like my brush texture (that I really like and often use), this brush will be very useful!....w w-wait a minute."
These are the brushes I made available in a free psd brush pack a long time ago:
The "sponge-brush" in Krita is the EXACT same texture I made, but mirrored xD
It's a texture from a pattern I also made and mixed with other brushes from this pack. Here is the pattern for anyone who would be interested:
I do not blame them for this, I just found this funny and a bit flattering. My textures were made free to use, and Krita is also a free software, so I honestly do not mind at all :b
I was not expecting my brush pack to have been so much popular and used, I looked it up and my pack is now available on many sit

How it Works
projecteducate started with purely CV run weeks. Those were weeks focusing on a specific art form brought to you by your lovely Community Volunteers. As well as these epic seven days of awesome, we've now introduced two more themes which run on a bi-monthly basis. Those are Community Weeks, which include articles from members of the dA community - and Artist Toolbox Weeks which include a mixture of articles focusing purely on the 'tools' of the trade. If you're interested in either please note projecteducate!

200 Watchers! :D Requests, questions and contest I have 200 watchers~!200 Watchers! :D Requests, questions and contest10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks so much guys! I never thought my art would be good enough to accumulate 200 watchers.
I'm opening up requests again. Just comment leaving a reference picture in the comments. Only one per person, and remember, I'm pretty much only good at drawing Pokemon. It would also be pretty helpful if you described what kind of scene you wanted (I'm bad at thinking them up on the spot.)
Questions are also open again, feel free to ask any question to any of my characters.
I'm also going to hold another contest, but this time I'm going to increase the point rewards.
The requirements are:
Draw your rendition of a scene that was in the comic or you think will be in the comic. For you literature Deviants out there, you can describe the scene in a literature deviation instead. Do not trace!!!
Edit: Maybe I should've been mo

How to become popular on deviantART(The following "guide" is based on my own experience, but it's not meant to be taken seriously)How to become popular on deviantART3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Alright everyone! You wanna know how to become popular on deviantART? Then follow these easy steps and you'll reach popularity in no time!
Change your usernameMake a new account
Whoops, sorry. I thought deviantART had a username-change system, but it doesn't. Looks like you'll have to start over and make a new account! Transfer your faves and the people you watch, because you need a good username if you want to be taken seriously here, and making a new account is the only option for now.
Make sure not to choose the name of an anime character and a bunch of random numbers as your username (naruto12345), choose one that's easy to remember and defines your person. Because seriously, who chooses a random word and random numbers as their username?
Step 2: Start making art
The site is called deviantART

Organizing your Sta.sh has been made easier than ever! You can now create stacks within stacks in your Sta.sh, giving you even more creative control over your projects!
Stacks are folders in Sta.sh that can be created by dragging one file onto another. When in a stack in your Sta.sh, you can now merge several files to create a sub-stack inside of that stack!

To My Watchers.To My Watchers.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hey you guys! (I don't really know what to call you--if you should have some special name or just 'watchers'.) I want to let you all in on some things that have been happening recently.
First, I've been taking/creating requests! But as of recently, I overwhelmed myself in the process. I need to take a break. I'll still be uploading stuff, however, because the first step to recovery--I think--is drawing what you desire. I'm not sure how long this break will last, but I will be sure to keep you all updated.
Secondly, I'd just like to say THANK YOU! Thank you for all the recent watches, I don't even know what I did to attract so much attention recently! Maybe I should make some gifts? Iunno, I'll think about it! *Adds all of your pretty faces below.*
