Contest Announcement~I am officially announcing my first contest, i have planned this for a month and finally i can officially announce itContest Announcement~2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how.
here are images of them for inspiration

Q. Why do you hold these giveaways?
A. I do it for fun of course! People usually donate points to support me and I hold these giveaways to give back to the rest of these users on DeviantART. No it's not a lot of points, but it's something!
Q. Why do you ask people to fave a deviation? Why not allow them to just comment on the journal or deviation?
A. Because when they fave the deviation, I can click on the "view who has faved this" button and it gives me an already made list that I can easily put into random.org, and that saves me A LOT of time. If I had to go through the comments and write down every single user who wanted to enter I wouldn't be able to hold the giveaways as often. Plus it's easier for others to hit a fave button instead of commenting. I'm trying to make these giv

Character Design: Important Updates!Since the response for this was a lot better than I expected, there will be more than 3 artists working on this video (recording software isn't necessary, but if you've got it, go ahead and record your speed painting or speed drawing, and send it to me via email: firstname.lastname@example.orgCharacter Design: Important Updates!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the artists that will be involved (so far):
If you'd like to be an artist involved please comment on this journal with a link to your best work!
I also wanted to ask: Are you artists okay with doing possibly 10 characters? The response for descriptions was quite over the expectation, and I was wondering if I should increase the slots from 5 - 10. Which means 1 artist + 10 descriptions = 10 characters.
Time frame for this will be 1 month/four weeks/28 days . That's the maximum amount of time you will get.
So far the descriptions are:

Only 10 hours left1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So this is a super last minute update and i'm sorry for not mentioning this earlyer. But there will be a second chance to get an art book with soft covers out of the ones that got left over from Aniventure. They are printed with another printing company but i'll explain everything later. The point is, the soft cover is $10 cheaper than the hard cover. I will make the announcement when i get some time
So just a quick update, my pre-orders end on September 20, so it's the last chance to get your hands on a copy of my art book!
Thank you to everyone who bought a copy already, i will prin them soon and ship them

Meet Marloeshi - and Mieps the Guinea Pig!Marloeshi is the first Interviewee for our series focusing on Photographers here on DeviantArt. She's twenty one years old and is a photographer based in The Netherlands in a small town near Eindhoven. She has been experimenting with Photography since she was around sixteen years old and got her first DSLR for her Birthday. Like many of us, she messed around (her words!) for the first few years and experimented to find her 'style' but in the last two or three years she nailed it and now has a gallery full of absolutely beautiful works. Marloeshi's work spans a wide range of sub-galleries here on DeviantArt including Still Life, Animals, Nature, Travel and Conceptual to name just a few. This interview will hopefully give you a little glimpse into her work, her processes and a few of her secrets for creating some of the awesome images that she has made.Meet Marloeshi - and Mieps the Guinea Pig!8 months ago in Art Features More Like This

hack your name with a cleaver and wipe off
the ink on my apron, spend the rest of my days
stained black in the creases of all my fingers
and thumbs, i know there is a lesson waiting,
maybe in the summerlands i'll see a blinding
my funeral pyre,
lost in the woods it will come to me, wings clipped
and say, it's time you picked a side
and stuck with it, wear yourself down to your bones
and make it quick, he's coming, well what if i want
to sicken and die? lay my head in the hydrangeas and fade
from purple to blue, just wither away, okay? well
yeah but not in a day, i guess i'll have to stay
on the doorstep drunk, a waste of skin
and time, i hear
the bark of next door's dog and wonder
if he knows

There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised
Art as TherapyArt in the ProfessionsArt as Therapy6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
An interesting point of convergence between art and health is the discipline of art therapy. It is a form of psychotherapy that encompasses multiple fields and form the bridge that allows health care professionals to reach patients who are considered very difficult to treat. Since its humble beginnings in the mid-1940’s, art therapy has continued to thrive between the boundaries of art, art theory, psychology and psychiatry.
What is it?
Art therapy has multiple definitions, since it came together from multiple origins. The most common definition combines its psychoanalytic roots and its behaviour-modification roots. Art therapy is defined by The British Association of Art Therapists as:
… A form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of communication. Clients who can use art therapy may have a wide range of difficulties, disabilities or diagnoses. These include, for example, emotional, behavioral or mental

How to get feedback on dAWe all joined this site, more or less for this reason, to get feedback on our art. The whole point of submitting art online is for people to see it and hear what they think about it.How to get feedback on dA1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Now there are a lot of deviants out there who get little to no feedback and as a result ask the people who faved their art to comment or go to random people on dA and ask for them to look at their art or comment in the hopes that the person will be kind enough to return the favor.
A message to the people who do that, you're doing it all wrong.
Sure, if you ask 20 people who faved your drawing what they thought about it, you might get 1 or 2 answers, but in return, you'll be ignored by say 10 people and you'll annoy 8 people. I get these comments and i'm telling you, begging for feedback is not the way to go, if someone didn't comment when they fave, what makes you think forcing their hand is the right way to go?
A fav is a compliment, take it a it is. Not everyone has
