A very sad nightMy dog, Liberty, passed away last night. She has been sick for the past couple of days, and last night we could tell that it was her time to go. She was very uncomfortable, so we took her to the vet to put her down in a more peaceful way. (Please do not judge for this decision. She was a very old dog and we did not want to see her suffer). The whole experience was extremely heart-wrenching. It was not an easy decision, but the vet agreed that she would've gone in the next couple hours and it would've been a long and painful process. She was having difficulty breathing and was anemic. It was reassuring that the vet could spare her a few hours of pain.A very sad night8 months ago in Personal More Like This
My mom, dad, brother and I were together with her as a family while she passed.
She is now buried next to her sister. A very bittersweet ending.

Art Bags I use my own WeLoveFine bag as my art bag on trips. With it, I take my pens, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, and paper. It's not that big and I can use it around places like the plane.The Paper I'm bringing with me a couple types of paper. I use Strathmore drawing paper and toned paper. They are decent paper I like to draw on for nice simple drawings.

You can be minimal with just a few graphite pencils, 1 pen, one eraser, and one small sketchb

"That 90's Contest" begins now!No, Red Foreman will not be putting any feet into any asses, but "That 90's Contest" begins now!"That 90's Contest" begins now!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is an open media contest, any and all forms of art and photography are accepted. Only ONE submission is allowed into the contest folder per member. If you submit something incorrectly to it, that's it, you will not get another shot. No exceptions!
This contest is about all things from the 1990's. If you're going to do something from a movie, it HAS to have been in theaters in the 90s. If you're going to do something on a TV show, it MUST have aired at any point between 1990 and 1999. Let your imagination go wild... clothing, times, events... it's all up to you!
I will ask, if you are submitting something that isn't as obvious for the 90's as it should be, PLEASE let us know. We will try to be thorough on this, but I think it will go really smoothly. Submissions for the contest will end on May 10th, 2014 at 10pm EST. Good luck!

You can also do shape-shifters with different forms, or anything that you want!

Species: Dragons (western and eastern), gryphons, angels, demons, ordinary humans, shape-shifters.

observation and imaginationTL;DR: Learn by drawing from real life, so you can more convincingly, creatively and beautifully draw from your imagination (and/or from life).observation and imagination2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Beginner artists often obsess about being unable to draw well from imagination. If you try to improve your art skills only by drawing from imagination, it may take you in some very interesting (or possibly frustrating) directions. If you want to draw realistically from your imagination, you should probably start your journey with many many hours of drawing from real life (and to a lesser degree photos and other resources.)
Artists who are searching for advice, sometimes regard the suggestions "practice" and "draw from life" as too simple, too boring, too vague, or somehow insulting or dismissive. However, for more experienced artists who are giving this advice, it may simply be the clearest and most obvious path to improvement. More specific guidance may not be be possible when what you need to improve is "everything". If y

Dragon Magic Contest (Closed for judging)This is a busy season so I thought I would give you guys a little more time to get your entries in.Dragon Magic Contest (Closed for judging)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Dragons are inherently creatures of magic, from the tip of their horns to their smallest scales, they are infused with it. They possess the power of flight to light our imaginations with their fiery breath or a mystical spell. Dragons range from cunning creatures with fantastical magic abilities, like breathing fire or mesmerizing us with their gaze to the intelligent and powerful magic users , High mages and Wizards in their own right, drawing upon centuries of wisdom and practice. Whether a wielder of spells or a creature using its magical abilities to fly into our dreams, dragons tap into the deepest magic of our minds. What magic do they show to you? What spells do they weave around your head and what tales do they tell?
~Whatever you imagine, whatever you dream. Here there be Dragons!~

Initial Release of the Motion Book ToolIn April of last year, we announced a partnership between deviantART and Madefire, bringing Madefire's signature Motion Books to deviantART and introducing a new form of storytelling to the world's largest art community.Initial Release of the Motion Book Tool1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
We also announced that Madefire's professional-grade Motion Book Tool would be brought to deviantART—giving deviants the opportunity to turn imagination into a visual, auditory, and literary masterpiece, and showcase their art alongside some of the industry’s greatest creators.
After months of development and testing, we are excited to announce that the gradual release of the Motion Book Tool has begun, and you're (very likely) among the first to gain access. Having access to the Tool means you can create dynamic Motion Books just like the pros, and publish them directly from your deviantART account!
