This article aims to give you a brief introduction to some poetic terms with which you can bemuse your friends and nonplus your enemies. Try and sling some of these terms into a casual conversation and watch the ensuing confusion.
If you don't want to confuse people, you could use these terms to discuss poetry like a badass
while smoking unfiltered cigarettes in a French cafe, when critiquing, or to give your own poetry a bit of a vajazzle.
These terms are arranged vaguely into alphabetical order for your convenience. Some of them will be covered in more detail in other articles throughout the week.

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.

Tips: How to make thy comment meaningfulTips: How to make thy comment meaningful1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Making one's comment meaningful and making it count has many benefits, especially in the art world.
Single words praise really does hold little weight, and just not making any comment also don't earn anyone anything, so bringing it up another level is good for both the artist, and the appreciator.
1. It starts conversations, and make friends: When you comment on people's work around, not limited to the artists you admire but also artists you can buddy with on different levels, you will find yourself rich with many art friends to discuss your own work and joy with. You will also find this skill useful when you make it into the professional world where you would be making comments to make connections.
2. Gets comments for your own work: when you give people meaningful comments that rewards them, you can ask for feedback for your own work easier, because you have invested in their work first. If you cold-call it's harder t

Poetry Basics: BrevityBrevity: n. the quality of expressing much in few words.Poetry Basics: Brevity2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
When I was in tenth grade, I took my first literature course. It was a six week exploration of poetry. The first poem my teacher showed us was Ezra Pound's In a Station of the Metro:
The apparition of faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.
I, in all of my 16-year-old knowledge of the intricacies of what poetry is, informed my teacher that those two lines were not a poem.
"You don't think so?"
"No. They don't rhyme, they are just one metaphor, and did I mention they're only two lines?"
She sure showed me.
Importance in Poetry
Pound's poem is considered such a great work because he inserts several layers into a single image. Using only 13 words he evokes an entire painting within the reader's mind. You can hear the sounds of the trains, see the fatigue of a mother wrestling with her cranky toddler,
