Gaining Exposure To ArtGaining Exposure For Your Own Art:Gaining Exposure To Art3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Being active on the site is probably the best and most effective way to get yourself and your art seen. Leaving thoughtful comments on others art will often result in them coming to your page to find out more about you and see your art. Being involved and making friends will promt people to focus on you and your art giving you a bit more exposure. Leaving critiques, helping to moderate groups, posting in the forums, or simply chatting it up in the chatrooms. These can all be beneficial in getting you more exposure. Below I'd like to outline some of the wonderful ways, I believe, you can gain extra exposure to your art.
Joining groups which are relevant to your interests and the art which you make can be very helpful in getting your art out there and seen by like minded individuals. The introduction of groups by dA has made it very e

Penis(EDIT: Thank you so much for all this wonderful feedback and support! It proves me that I have the best watchers one can have.Penis3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also - check out this journal every now and then since more pictures of this kind are being created at the moment and I am gonna feature them all within this entry.)
You know what makes me sick and tired?
Why is it ok to depict nude women, sometimes quite blatantly (those make it on the front page…), but if you show MALE nudity… some people get their panties in a twist.
I get a lot of positive feedback, don't get me wrong. My watchers are cool and overall very nice and they watch me for a reason... I mean, look at my gallery... men, men and even more men, dressed and (half) naked men.
BUT then there is those people that have never even talked to me before... they send me notes, try to tell me how to do MY art, telling me I create porn and that naked men are ugly... I instantly delete shit like that, otherwise I would have a few quotes

CONTEST REFRESHOkay so my bestieee is having a contestCONTEST REFRESH3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And it inspired me to make one ;u;
Its a short story contest
Buttttttttttt.....its a YAOI short story contest
Lol I'm so yaoi obsessed
Okai guiz, hea ah da rulez :3
No plaigerizing. It must be yours.
It cannot be super short, and it MUST have detail, it can't just be:
The guy walked to the bar. He ordered a drink. He saw a hot guy. He walked over to the hot guy.
The tall man walked to the bar, adjusting his blue jacket. He ordered a daiquiri without looking up at the tender. He picked his head up and looked around the club, spotting a young looking man sitting all alone, looking rather down. Taking his daiquiri he casually strolled over to introduce himself.
See? Detail. It makes a difference.
I will reject it if its too short.
Entries can be as long as you want tho ;u;
They MUST have a decent plot
Good characters and an introduction of the characters.
You can make it dirty if you'd like I wouldn't mind.
As long as its censored.

Tis the Season...to challenge yourself!Hi everyone! ScatteredAshe here with a special challenge for you! We at TheArtOfManipulation would like to challenge everyone in the photomanipulation community to create a manip-a-day for the month of December! Yep, you heard that right...a manip-a-day! We'll say 30 manips, Christmas Day can be optionalTis the Season...to challenge yourself!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This challenge was inspired by inner-outsider and her quest to complete a manip-a-day for the month of October. You can read more about that here http://fav.me/d5k6n7p .
So this month at TAOM, instead of our usual learning challenge we'd like to ask you all to take what you've learned over the past few months and work on refining your skills. I know 30 manips can be intimidating but don't sweat it! You don't have to complete a full manip each day (of course you can if you'd like) but maybe work on certain areas each day or do a small manip every day (say, 4"x 5"). Figure out what your goal for the month is and then go from there! For example, I'm givi

Hopefully you all had fun designing, those of you have done so. I can't wait to start judging, it's going to be a massive task because I literally love all of them. <3
Anyway, get those entries in!
Hey guys! I haven't updated in awhile. I hope you are all getting your entries done and dusted. There is only a little over 2 weeks left in the competition.
Just to clarify, the competitions results will not be released on the 31st. This is when I stop accepting entries. I may make exceptions if it's only a couple of deviants but if not, then that's the cut off. I will give myself between 1-2 weeks to judge depending on whether or not I have enough cash to spare. It doesn't really amount to a lot, but I would like to attempt to have it t

Pro-Bending in Real LifeI've come up with a system of faking a game or two of real-life pro-bending.Pro-Bending in Real Life3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Earthbenders have a limited number of green Frisbees they can throw at the other team. Maybe somewhere around 25. But they can throw the Frisbees back that were thrown at them as well. Waterbenders are given ultra powerful water guns that they must refill without getting hit from time to time. Firebenders was the real challenge here, but I've come up with a solution. A butt load of red and orange koosh balls! (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_kVBIKsx0ZqQ/SvHLfk-QS0I/AAAAAAAABIc/Eeijvn9tjCc/s400/Orange_Koosh_Ball.JPG)
Now, because none of these things are powerful enough to actually knock someone out of the ring, there's instead a time limit. By the end of that time limit, two refs will tally up just who got hit and how many time. Whichever team suffered the most hits loses.

PE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS10 useful and not very known Photoshop tricksPE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Saving your .psd with all layers hidden makes a smaller file compared to saving it with all layers visible.
2. You can use the Crop Tool to quickly increase the canvas size of an image by holding down Ctrl + Alt whilst dragging the Crop Tool outside the current canvas.
3. If you want to see only one of your layers at a time, hold down Alt whilst clicking the eye icon of the layer. (do it again to show all layers again)
4. Holding down Alt while in a dialog box turns the Cancel button into a Reset button, so you can reset the values back to default.
5. If you want to just quickly check a very heavy .psd file, you can hold down Shift + Alt while clicking the Open button. This way Photoshop will open a flattened version of the file.
6. You can change the gray background that surrounds your image with the Paint Bucket Tool, just hold down Shift and make click on the background.
7. Not a very unknown tip, but if y
