Project Bacon - #4This project was inspired by ProjectPorkchop a group that has bi-weekly journals showcasing deviants who produce wonderful art but for some reason have less than 200 watchers. We often come across art or get suggestions for artists with between 200 and 500 watchers that deserve more exposure, so I decided to start a series of features for those artists.Project Bacon - #42 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Artists beware! Thieves trying to steal passwordsEvery once in a while i get someone trying to hack into my facebook or deviantart. Lately someone sent me a link to a fake tumblr log in screen trying to steal my tumblr password. that person is obsidianwingsofmidnight.tumblr.comArtists beware! Thieves trying to steal passwords2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Yes, i am making this public so that people know what kind of person obsidianwingsofmidnight is and be aware of messages from him/her.
this person claims they were hacked as well. That might or might not be true, either way i don't want to go hunting them down, just be careful of ANYONE sending you links, especially people you never talked to before.
A note for every deviant out there.
HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM PASSWORD THIEVES:
1. Start out by having a very strong password. Having passwords that have numbers and symbols (*!@#$%) is a great way to start, but a sure way of having a strong password is just having a very long one. I saw an article where it said that nothing beats a long password, So it's better to have a long passw

Good artI've seen a lot of people claim they know what "good art" is or isn't, so I I'll just add my two cents.Good art7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I spent a very long time trying to make my own art more realistic (never got close to realism, but there was an attempt) but then I realized I didn't even like realistic art and the only reason I was trying to achieve it was because others had told me that's what I should strive for.
It's not that I think realistic art is bad or that other people are wrong for liking it. I can most certainly see the appeal of it. It's simply that I'm personally not that interested in it. When I see realistic art I tend to not notice the work put into it. It's more like a photo to me, even if it includes a lot of fantastical elements. Again, that's what a lot of people like about it, and that's great. I just happen to like when a drawing is unapologetic about being a drawing, like the styles of Bjørn Wiinblad and Tove Jansson.
There are only two things I personally think are important to learn wh

The Chat Network :: Lesson 1This is an introductory tutorial on topics concerning the Chat Network.The Chat Network :: Lesson 19 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So, you've created your first chatroom and you're a bit confused on how it all works? These two lessons will attempt to take some of the mystery out of using and managing your chatroom.
Note that most of the commands mentioned in this article can be done by accessing your Chatroom Settings (a link to this is located in the bottom right of your chat screen). Most people prefer to use the commands though since not everything can be done by using the Chatroom Settings, and for the most part you can do things faster and easier by using the command.
When you first create your chatroom you'll notice that you are put into the "Guests" privclass. The first thing you should do is to type this command in the text box where you normally type:
/promote username Founders
Where "username" is your deviant username.
The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )

A Tribute to Hans Ruedi GigerA Tribute to Hans Ruedi Giger2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.
In 1979, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon craft
