Once per month we'll select one active user in the forums and we'll feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.
As we're kind (and awesome), we also decided to give an opportunity to everybody to get featured! Every month, we'll create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a different theme. This thread will be made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs from your gallery matching the theme and, at the end of the month, we'll select our favorite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article
The best thing is that the only requirement is that you're an active member of the forums!
Featured Forumer of the Month: MasterPlanner.

Starving ArtistThe Starving ArtistStarving Artist9 months ago in Personal More Like This
This topic is about rates and wages that an artist should start to consider when taking on a new job. This is my advice, so take this as advice.
So let’s begin. As an artist you should know right away that you are valuable. You can recreate people’s imagination and ideas into reality. You are the one who brings people together to be able to all see the vision for the final product. This is valuable. Keep this in mind when you take new jobs. Think about how many hours you plan on slaving over iteration after iteration. Because even though you may have a voice, if you agree to whatever the arrangement are, you must live up to their standards. So make sure you are paid well.
Imagine a client asks you to do 50 hours of work for only $500 dollars. That’s $10 an hour. That is not enough. You can go get a job that could pay you as much if not more, without being an artist. I’ve seen people’s salaries as low as 30k a year. This is not acc

Congratulations. Your prize: free art picture.
The whole "fave the journal"-rule was a scientific experiment. Getting this extra-attention is nice, of course, but I think I'll keep these lotteries small and personal in the future. I don't, understandably, want someone to come in just for the lottery and free art potentiality. But we'll see...
The next sirtiefling-event should be one of them "use your creativity"-contests. So be ready.

Why equipment doesn't matter all that muchOh god, I wanted that Wacom Intuos tablet so badly.Why equipment doesn't matter all that much1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I was 16 years old at that time. I had already seen so much amazing art on the internet for the last few years. Digital art, to be precise. And I wanted to be able to do that as well. I had a computer, I had installed Photoshop. The only thing that I didn't have was money. I was completely broke. Note: it's 2004 we're talking about, here. 10 years ago (yeah, I'm old) when computers still costed a fortune and one almost had to take an extra mortgage in order to be able to pay a tablet. Back then, the average Intuos tablet costed as much as the average computer; a whole damn lot of money.
I had already been drawing for years, back then.
I occasionally scanned my drawings. But as my scanner was utter crap (all scanners where, back then), my preferred medium was pencil (that never does well with scanners) and I wasn't that good with adjusting colors in Photoshop... most of my drawings ended in utter digital disappointment.

PURA VIDA Costa Rica!
Talking about sculpting... as you know I've been learning a lot of this, just because! and I think it works for me somehow because I'm starting to create some things and liking the results a lot! (I dont feel this way very often)
This is my 2nd project, Mr Andrew Ryan from the videogame Bioshock
Commissioned for Ken Levine himself, very excited because he is my first costumer on this field and guess what? He loved it ^^ (Thanks God!)
I worked on it 21 days and as you can see, I wanted to give an affect as if it were under the sea for a long time with living things on it and such, so there!

Ten paradoxical traits of the creative personality
By Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Of all human activities, creativity comes closest to providing the fulfillment we all hope to get in our lives. Call it full-blast living.
Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives. Most of the things that are interesting, important, and human are the result of creativity.
What makes us different from apes--our language, values, artistic expression, scientific understanding, and technology--is the result of individual ingenuity that was recognized, rewarded, and transmitted through learning.
When we're creative, we feel we are living more fully than during the rest of life. The excitement of the artist at the easel or the scientist in the lab comes dose to the ideal fulfillment we all hope to get from life, and so rarely do.
Perhaps only sex, sports, music, and religious ecstasy--even when these experiences remain fle

The world of crafting is fascinating and never ending. We have been crafting since the first human molded some mud into a pot, and a seemingly endless list of crafts has been created since. Some crafts are very well known, and you have probably dabbled a bit into them yourself... but some of them are a lot less known. I put some examples together, please enjoy them and leave a comment below letting us know how many of them you already knew if you know any unknown crafts, feel free to share them with us!
Extra credits if you already tried some of these!
Note: These are NOT totally obscure crafts that are only practiced in remote places of the world or that require specialized equipment, I chose crafts that should be easy enough to pick up but not a lot of people are doing.

Wonder Woman Reborn
Supers V Wonder by JoshJ81
The collective fan community sigh of relief that a female director has been chosen to bring the Amazonian Goddess to life on the big screen has been echoing across the web ever since Monday’s announcement that Michelle McClaren had won that coveted crown. Here at DA HQ, we can’t help but imagine what Joss Whedon might have done with the character.
Pray no one involved in the Catwoman movie gets close to it.
The Secret Drawing IngredientIf you're an artist of any kind it's extremely important to hone your craft and technical abilities. After all, the better you draw and the better you are at mastering the drawing tools you use - the easier it is to convey your unique message for public consumption.The Secret Drawing Ingredient1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But how important is technical ability, really? Obviously, it's very important. Understanding anatomy, light and shadow and perspective are key to solid drawing. It's important to always be improving in those departments. It's also very important to master the tools you use to draw with. Learning to render or color professionally can only increase your appeal to both fans and other professionals.
But what about developing artistic appeal on a much deeper level?
It's not just about finding a pleasing style. Anyone can do that with enough practice. You can always choose a popular artist and emulate his or her style. The blueprint is right there. But why d
Marketing Materials For ArtistsEDIT: Well butter my biscuits, some of my gifs disappeared into the interwebs. I'll remedy this soon!Marketing Materials For Artists1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
It’s no secret that us artists aren’t great at selling ourselves. The creative process is so much work it’s easy to assume that your work will be able to sell itself. Sometimes it can, but that’s not usually the case. Even if you aren’t interested in going commercial with your career (and there is absolutely nothing wrong with going that route), it is important have professional materials to present to clients, employers and galleries. If you aren’t interested in being “full time” with selling your artwork, I think it would still be good to consider putting together marketing materials as a means of creating good client relations.
This journal will include a number of things you may need in marketing yourself, but also if you are applying to art schools or for various jobs in art. I would also like to note that you d

Folks, I don’t think I have to tell you all that it’s a bad idea to drink bleach, let along pump it up your ass:iconfluttershysqueeplz:. So I really don’t think I have to say that you can’t “cure” autism with bleach enemas.
Or at least I wouldn’t have to say that if it weren’t for the fact that too many gullible parents were trying to cure their children’s autism by doing just that:Whether you have AIDS, malaria, cancer, or autism, there is a product sold on the internet that claims it can cure you. That product, called Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), sounds a lot like other pseudoscientific remedies—but unlike many suspect forms of new age

For a long while, I wanted to do something really nice for all of you lovelies here on dA. Though, I never did have the money to do that.
Yesterday, I got $50 from my grandmother in the mail, and that's when it hit me. I knew just what I was going to do.
So, I'm going to be having a $50 in presents giveaway. Though, I'm sure that if you do just want the money, I can have the money transferred to you if you have a PayPal. uwu
So, let's set down some ground rules.
-You do not need to be a watcher to enter.
-You need to tell me 1-6 items that you want, but the grand total cannot exceed $100.00! This includes shipping and handling as well, keep in mind.
-This can include books, video games, movies, etc. Pretty much whatever you want, as long as it's appropriate.
-If you want to commission an artist, buy a custom, etc.
