As most of the world is aware, for some countries, Halloween is literally right around the corner. For a few years, I've been thinking that I wanted to start a monthly news article that features deviants who haven't really gotten a lot of attention, and I thought, "Why not now?"
I know that I've probably missed some AMAZING pieces out there, but I'm hoping that you can find some really....delicious and depraved deviations in this article! Please note: I know that some of these deviants have quite a few pageviews, but take a look at how long they've been around deviantART. I based on how "unseen" they are by how long they've been here and how many pageviews they have.
I feel like I didn't give enough love to enough deviants who need it, so as it's even

A Spotlight for the CosplayersGame-Art-HQ stands mainly for drawn art, but cosplay is a part of the video game fans community, a part of deviantART and a part of GAHQ as well.A Spotlight for the Cosplayers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today i want to feature some of the cosplayers here which put not only a lot of work into the costumes they made, they also had the right photographer and in some cases completely fitting environments for their cosplays as well. Most cosplay articles are mostly about the sexy looking female cosplayers, i hope to arrange a nice mix here instead with a different focus.
I think the term Cosplay-Art is only fair for the upcoming photos:
Edward Conway, the protagonist of the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV, cosplayed by Rick Boer from the Netherlands. His earlier MGS cosplays are damn epic.
The right moment..caught here by fiathriel from the USA a photographer who often works with cosplayers, her works are often on the frontpage here on dA.
Instructions For A Bad Day by Shane KoyczanIt was a long time ago since a text shocked be so deep in my bones, flesh and being that I hardly remember it.Instructions For A Bad Day by Shane Koyczan2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But this guy? Shane Koyczan? He's... Like, GOD, you know? His WORDS, they mean everything to me; espacially his poem 'Instructions For A Bad Day'; he says things I already used for my life even before I knew he's there.
"Know that now is only a moment, and that if today is as bad as it gets, understand that by tomorrow, today will have ended.
But then, he also tells things I know I should do but I can't. Maybe, with help, I can try again.
Here you have his side and the video:
And the lyrics for 'Instructions For A Bad Day':
"There will be bad days. Be calm. Loosen your grip, opening each palm slowly now. Let go. Be confident. Know that now is only a moment, and that if today is as bad as it gets, understand that by tomorrow, today will have ended. Be gra

A lot of artists starting out feel overwhelmed by the legal, business, and tax issues involved in starting a small business and becoming a freelance artists. Fortunately, there are organizations around the country to help those who exist under a certain income bracket.
Here is a list of organizations by state.
Each offers different services and consultations, but if you're stuck for information, these people are here to help. Even if they don't know the answer to your question, they might be able to direct you to someone who does.
Though some of the organizations are disbanded, I imagine you could ask for an updated list.

It's that time of the week again! We sort of want to apoligize because...well Raven wants to apoligize. She went a little crazy with putting photo's in the feautred folder this week after going through all the folders to check if everything was still in the right folder. So we have quite a few photo's that made it into the featured folder this week. Atleast that gives everyone a chance to see some awesome work. Be sure to check these cosplayers out and perhaps fave some of their work and leave a comment!

LOOK AT THIS AND LAUGH.
But seriously. I was dealing with this person a few months ago in regards to some art theft issues. They had stolen some art, traced some art, and I and several others called them out.
So now she's "getting back" at me by accusing me of tracing.
The only time I ever traced was when I was 7 years old.

I even wrote half of a Sonic and Tails story that has succeeded in making my fiancee laugh and feel creeped out at the same time because of how damn surreal it was. So on my Dad's birthday, I decided I wanted to draw him a picture of Sonic. Thing i

Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.For a lot of you it might be nothing new, but since a lot of you are either new on dA or not experienced with something like "strategies" to get views, comments and faves for their works i (your most favourite dA group guy :icongbk666: ) thought i write up a few hopefully useful hints for you.Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Upload as many drawings / photos etc. as you can. Some of you would argue now that it can be counterproductive if the deviations are not good, but i come to that point in #2
2. Join Groups. A Ton of them.. at least 15-25 . And submit your stuff to them on a regular base. BUT only the things you consider by yourself as "good" . The rest is for your gallery only, and interesting for those deviants who want to see sketches, WIP's etc.
Always care about the theme of the dA groups of course and about their rules. If you are not Alvin Lee, Artgerm or Genzoman or have over 100k views on your profile already and over 400-500 watchers at least you really need dA groups to g

What kind of photos magazine need
1. Please, first send small photos as preview (around 600x800 px), magazine editors will look through photos and I will contact you back, if your photos will be chosen. After that I will ask you for the big resolution photos (best is not smaller than 2574x3875 , small photos is bad for printing as you know.)

It's time for our second contest and this time we're going for winter themed entries!
Show what your favorite xenowoman or xenowomen does during the winter. Are they out in the snow playing, or do they seek refuge inside by the fireplace? Or maybe they are getting ready for Christmas or a similar holiday?

Personally, I hate snow, but I can't think of anything better to brighten the days to come than a load of new xenowomen pictures
