PE: Fan Art vs Original ArtFan Art vs. Manga & Anime: The differencesPE: Fan Art vs Original Art1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Many people have come to me in the past with questions regarding whether their work qualified as Manga & Anime or Fan Art, same happened with many Daily Deviations that were placed in the M&A gallery when they should have been submitted to the Fan Art Gallery, oops!
Do you have doubts regarding the submission process? Wonder no more, we'll unveil all the mysteries surrounding the categories! :iconokie2plz:
Fan art includes those artworks that are based on or contain material such as characters, settings, concepts or universes in general that are copyrighted to someone else other than the artist creating said Fan artwork.
Manga and Anime art, on the other hand, is home for all the artworks that artists have created from scratch and are not related to any preexisting universe nor contain any copyrighted material.

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.

this person claims they were hacked as well. That might or might not be true, either way i don't want to go hunting them down, just be careful of ANYONE sending you links, especially people you never talked to before.
A note for every deviant out there.
HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM PASSWORD THIEVES:
1. Start out by having a very strong password. Having passwords that have numbers and symbols (*!@#$%) is a great way to start, but a sure way of having a strong password is just having a very long one. I saw an article where it said that nothing beats a long password, So it's better to have a long passw

FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)
1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat

Laying a wash
A wash is a large area in a watercolor painting where the paint flow and diffusion have been manipulated to efface individual brushstrokes. Within wash areas, color transitions are usually gradual and span analogous hues. Laying a wash is one of the most satisfying tasks in watercolor painting. Essentials of this s

For starters, I have to tell you what points are! You can't earn them if you don't know what they are.
To me, points are the currency of dA but they are worthless unless they were earned using the commissions widget, which I will talk about later in this article. But having a lot of it can be good and bad in a way.

PE: Wire-WrappingThis article is a short introduction to wire-wrapping, including information about wire-wrapping terms and tools, methods, tutorials and a feature of beautiful jewellery.PE: Wire-Wrapping11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
What is wire-wrapping?
"wire-wrapping" is - like the name implies - a technique where wire is wrapped in whatever way. It can be used to hold gemstones in place, and create intricate jewellery. It has the big plus that soldering isn't neccessary, and therefore all the equipment needed is relatively easy to come by.
Terms and Tools
Wire comes in different different sizes and forms, and you can choose between materials as well - you can use brass, copper, silver and gold wire.
Wire diameter is measured in 'gauge' and ranges from 14 gauge (~1/16 inch) to 26+ gauge (1/64 inch), so the higher the gauge number, the thinner the wire.
Did You Know - BlockingBlockingDid You Know - Blocking6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
While many people tend to report other deviants they don't get along with or they feel harassed by to the HelpDesk right away, your first action should always be blocking.
Whatever reason you have to report someone, by blocking you avoid any further communication with certain deviants.
This action is immediate, as you don't have to wait for any staff member to take action and you can just enjoy your dA experience without that blocked deviant.
Personal reasons like disagreeing on a topic, not liking someone or similar won't end with a ban of that other deviant.
Contacting the HelpDesk just adds to the queue of tickets unnecessarily and makes it more time consuming to focus on important reports.
Only in case of serious harassment you should contact the HelpDesk.
If you are blocking someone it's an action in both directions. That means that not only the other person gets blocked from you, but you are automatically blocked for them as well.

Artists Toolbox: Colored PencilsColored pencils are widely used as a fun and readily available art tool. I'm sure most if not all of us have tried our hand at colored pencils, even if it was only while we were children. While colored pencils may not be as respected as paints such as oil, acrylic or watercolors, colored pencils shouldn't be under-estimated in the impact they can and do have on the art world.Artists Toolbox: Colored Pencils1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Different Types of Colored Pencils
Wax based colored pencils are probably the most common and readily available types of colored pencils on the market. As with any type of colored pencil, these come in varying qualities and prices.
Oil based colored pencils in my experience are not as easy to find unless you are shopping online or in an art store. These colored pencils are excellent if you are planing on coloring on wood or another similar surface. Blending oil based colored pencils ca

I have so much to say. I can write endlessly here but this video says most of it.
It is very shocking to see how females are being deprived in India. I am truly ashamed. But the most shocking thing that I have come across to know very recently from a friend of mine is that in a porn site, the 16th Dec Delhi rape case girl's pic was being used as an Ad with a message saying..
"Want to know how college girls are making XXXXX amount of money every month?"
The image that was used for the Ad was this one (the right one):
Yes, it is true! I have seen it myself. I am not naming the site here because I am not here to promote porn but to tell you that this is true.
This was so very shocking to see how humanity has crossed every lines they could possibly make. HOW CAN YOU USE IMAGES OF THOSE VICTI
Macro Human: Shooting Right in the Eye!This blog will particularly help those hoping to take a Macro Eye photograph for this weeks mini contest! Hopefully the title caught your attention...anyway...Macro photography can be challenging at the best times. So it's even more difficult to photograph an eye (watery e.t.c) least of all your own. As photographers, most of us are obsessed with eyes. We endlessly try to capture eyes at their sharpest in portraiture photographs, so starting with the basics (just capturing the eye) can help us get to grips with the fundamentals of Eye photography. There are many photoshop actions and brushes out there designed to make the 'eyes' pop - but for now this tutorial will just focus on the basic tools - the camera.Macro Human: Shooting Right in the Eye!9 months ago in Art Features More Like This

I may put a visual aid up later for the steps but for now, I am just going to write them down. Hopefully it will still be follow-able to try it yourself! Here Goes ::
» Open your lines in paint.
» Go to the top and select the option "Save As" (you'll get a pop-up now to select where to put it, name it and what file type)
» On this pop-up, there is a line that reads "save as type", click on that and select the line that reads "Monochrome Bitmap"
» Now save it a new file somewhere easy to find. (a new save so you don't overwrite your original saved lines)
» Now close that file and now open it using the menu.
» Save it once more but this time, change the "save as type" to "png" or "bmp" if you don't have the png option.
» Now open the one you just saved and you can test it out by using the paint bucket to fill in an area. Th
