My deviantART StoryMy deviant story is not one of the longest, I'm here since January 24th. As you may already know, I have started 2014 with the objective of drawing 1 doodle a day. For the whole year. (:My deviantART Story10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
My first deviation, doodle #1
Everything started as a very personal project on my Instagram account. I admit I was a bit afraid of joining dA and submitting my project in here.
In part, that was because I don't think I can express myself in English as well as I can with my main language - which is Portuguese. Another reason was that I came across deviantART through very famous deviations so I used to see dA as a fancy art gallery, not as a digital community.
guess which artwork first got me into dA? Yep, Yuumei's Countdown.
I was on high school when I discovered this site. It took me some time to figure out how deviantART really worked.
The Project365 Days of Doodles is a project in which I should make 1 drawing for each day of 2014. When I started this deviantART account I was already in the 24th doodle (I've been submitting my work since the first day of January on my Instagram account).The Project1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I decided to upload all the 24 doodles in a row, after that I'll submit 1 drawing per day as I finish each one of them. Hope you like my work so far!

Article Written for projecteducate
Although going into an art store can be fun but it can also be overwhelming with so many brands, types, and prices to consider. Sometimes, a totally cheapo art supply can work better than an expensive brand. I am going to be sharing my personal favorites and experiences with you and hopefully, the next time you go into an art store, you can have an idea on what to buy and selecting the material which suits your needs.
I am dividing this article into sections so you can skip ahead to the area which you are interested in.
Disclaimer: This article is extremely long due to the fact that I am covering almost every medium I have access to. Once again, please skip to the area you are interested in ^_^

How to beat procrastination (part 1)As I said on a previous submission, I'm planning to make some tutorials on the upcoming December. Before that, however, I feel like I can help on another subject, which comes before even starting your drawing: Procrastination. I mean, procrastination towards your own drawings.How to beat procrastination (part 1)6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
If you're not familiar with this word:
pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|
"the action of delaying or postponing something."
Why am I talking about this?
Well, a year ago I used to be a professional procrastinator. I've imposed the 365 Days of Doodles challenge to myself for this particular reason.
While procrastination is to some degree a natural phenomenon and can’t be completely eradicated, you can use the following strategies to get in the habit of getting drawings done.
Mind that these are not golden rules or such, just strategies that work fo

It would seem counter-intuitive that a person wearing glasses—i.e., a person in need of a device to properly identify and understand incoming visual perceptual information—would be assumed to be more rather than less intellectually gifted. And yet that’s the transformative power of donning a pair of glasses, the thicker-lensed and clunkier the better.

From the clothesline strung across the backyard, to the college dorm laundry rooms, to the inner city all-night Laundromats, we all have our memories that begin with helping Mom with Laundry Day, that task that soon became ours alone upon taking flight from the family nest. Laundry day can evoke warm memories of family unity, or cold memories of aching separation and loneliness, the softness of a stack of fresh towels or the hardness of city sidewalks, depending on the time in you life you are remembering. Here is a collection of deviations evoking the full range of Laundry Day duality.

What if plants were intelligent, exploring and analyzing the world with a sophisticated system of senses?

Increasing numbers of researchers, in a multiplicity of fields, are beginning to acknowledge that intelligence is an inevitable aspect of all self-organized systems—that sophisticated neura

Formed Function Exploring The Eiffel Tower’s Aesthetic
In a sense, the Eiffel Tower was created purely for the sake of making a tall tower.
The impetus for designing the tower in the first place was an upcoming world’s fair, to be held in Paris in 1889 — the centennial of the French Revolution. The tower was to be a centerpiece for the upcoming fair, and it was meant to be a temporary structure, with an intended lifespan of twenty years

How to draw during 365 daysHow to draw during 365 days5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?

Emotions Abstract by zampedroni
The earliest known artworks of humans, found on cave walls dating back about 40,000 years, tell stories.
Usually the stories are of amazing hunts for enormous wooly mammoths and other food sources. Others suppose they were plans for hunts, no different from a coach’s football plays.
Today we are learning of abstract artworks on the cave walls, seemingly deliberately hidden, and much farther back, painted by medicine men huffing hallucinogenic herbs. The purpose for these totemic abstracts is unclear. While native art worldwide retained its

Being an inspiration within the communityCommunity WeekBeing an inspiration within the community5 months ago in Personal More Like This
DeviantArt is an incredibly large community, and to many of us it's easy to feel that we cannot have an impact within it, without being incredibly popular, or having a special 'status' such as Senior, or by being a Community Volunteer. As natural as this thought might be, however, it is quite wrong. There are so many ways to be an inspiration within the community, and in this article I will describe a few key ones.
Compiling art features and posting them through your journals is one of the easiest ways to start trying to inspire and influence the community. There is so much art on DeviantArt, and so many artists deserving more recognition. Art Features are an incredibly fun way of exposing art you've fallen in love with, or art you believe the community should see more of. If you want your features to stand out more, try to be creative with them. Perhaps do themes, specific genres, perhaps include thumbnails in a specific order, perha

Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet.
