Gore Challenge #1! (CLOSED- WINNER CHOSEN)We're starting the challenges! For the first one we'll start simple, and with something appropriate for the upcoming holiday.Gore Challenge #1! (CLOSED- WINNER CHOSEN)4 months ago in Personal More Like This
This first challenge's theme is: Heartless
This can be interpreted literally or otherwise, as long as a heart theme is clearly communicated. (ie organs arranged in the shape of a heart, or concepts along those lines)
Note- Avoid going for the obvious 'you broke/stole my heart' piece. It's a trope that's been beaten to death a hundred times and back.
You can submit them into whatever category is appropriate, but also please link your submission to this journal, so we can keep track of entries!
These will be held to the same standards of submissions as any other art.
Prizes: wendigoflesh and ToothlessEgo will choose a winning entry, and that person will receive a full colored sketch by ToothlessEgo and a feature on the frontpage of this group until the next challenge is held.
DUE: Valentines Day, February 14
Devious Journal EntryHello to all my friends and fans here on DeviantArt!Devious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just wanted to take a minute to tell you guys about something cool I'm doing right now at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles.
It's called "Lost Angeles: 35 Days with Kevin Eastman"
It's an Art Exhibition that showcases the last 35 years or so of my career. From the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to Heavy Metal Magazine...It's all there for you guys to come check out and immerse yourselves in. I try to be there as often as I can so if you come by, there is a pretty good chance that you can catch me there. You never know who else might show up too! Just today, my friend Greg Cipes who is the voice of Mikey in the new Nickelodeon show came by to chat.
Now here is something special that I am doing just because I love you DeviantArt fans so much! Over the next few days, I am going to be scouring DA for great Turtles pieces. I'm going to load them all into a favorites folder, and then we are going to Project your art on the wall of the
Artist Feature: *AzyoMecha*So recently a good friend of mine did simply an amazing job on a commission. The goal was to design me a fursona, a Harpia harpyja or more commonly known as Harpy Eagle. She did an AMAZING job on it, I still can't believe how good it looks and I'm so in love with this piece of most beautiful art I've ever placed my eyes upon.Artist Feature: *AzyoMecha*2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It is simply amazing, you would all agree with me, right?

Project Educate: Cosplay for a CauseWith Halloween come and gone, many people have had their annual costuming fun and put those costumes away, or returned them to the rental shop, or even donated them to the local thrift store. But for some people, costuming is a year-round celebration of their favorite characters. Long associated with geeks and conventions, costuming has become a hobby unto itself. And for some, it's become a way of life.Project Educate: Cosplay for a Cause3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Heroes are meant to inspire. Cosplayers are geeks who display who and what they love in the most theatrical ways possible. And sometimes, they do this to pay their inspiration forward. Sometimes, they do this not just to homage, but to inspire and bring their heroes to life. Defeating negative stereotypes and helping the community... that's what being a super hero is all about!
Cosplay-for-charity groups are nonprofit organizations who use their passion to bring attention to various noble causes and have a little fun while doing it. They'll attend comic cons or organize events of their

Drawing stuff is my job...Hey everybody,Drawing stuff is my job...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This journal post is just by way of clarification, and isn't meant to cause offence to anyone.
I'm a professional artist. I earn the money I need to pay my mortgage and feed myself by drawing comics, designing toys, taking commissions, sketching for people at conventions and selling my self-published comic books. Basically, using the skills I've trained hard for to make a living.
I don't design, illustrate or enhance anything for FREE. I don't do art trades or requests. I can't afford to. I'm EXTREMELY busy, and when I do pack up work for the day, I use that time to chill out to avoid burning out.
I wouldn't dream of going into McDonalds and asking for a free burger, nor do I get my feet out to show a Podiatrist friend of mine. I don't expect a free ride on a bus.
Please extend myself and other professional artists the same courtesy; we may be highly visible, we put our work out there for a variety of reasons; to create an accessible portfolio, to enhance exposure or to

How are you? ^^ I hope your 2013 will be full of wonderful Deviations XD *____* and, yeah yeah, also health, money, love etc!
My first year on DA has been wonderful! I love so many categories and here I really appreciate the way Deviants interact each other!
Thank you very much for your words, comments, favs...
I'm trying to give more exposure to those Deviants who, in my opinion, are underappreciated. Is for this reason I began to share every month some deviations! ^^ (Look at my last journals!)
This month I would like to share with you the Deviation I suggested during my first year!
This is a very strange case -->
--> First suggestions: 31st of December (2011) and 1st of January (2012) Last two: 31st of December (2012) and 1st of January (2013), yesterday and today! XD
It means nothing, I know, but it's fuuuun!! *--*

Because it was requested! Good luck and I hope you all get your entries in by then!
Whoops guess I forgot to add some rules??
❀You are allowed to enter as many entries as you'd like, though you can't win more than one place (ex, if your pictures got judged and one won 1st and another won 3rd, you'd only win the prize for first and I would give 3rd to the next runner up sorta thing)
❀Choose whatever method of drawing you would like! You can choose to draw one character, or two in a couple, or all of them together, it is all your choice.
❀ Larger images would be cooler than smaller ones if you wanted it to show up in the PV! (like 100x100px would probably too small for that, but if you don't want your image in the PV, then that size is no problem!)
❀ ART MUST BE 100% YOURS. No bases, no traces. (If you are making an icon set and using your own icon base that you made, that is fine, but the work must

Nintendo announces Pokemon RainbowNintendo just announced the third Pokemon Black and White game, its gonna be called... POKEMON RAINBOW! YEAH BOI!! I thought they ran out of colors for the Pokemon games but the smart people at Nintendo got some creative guys together and did an awesome looking cover for the game. Rumours has it that Rainbow will be the most open minded game up to date, you know how Pokemon Black and White was all about right and wrong, good and evil, yin and yang, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones that kind thing? Well Pokemin Rainbow totally gets rid of that, everyone is treated equally and happiness is the only thing that matters. Recreational drugs and casual sex is also highly encouraged, you can dress up your Pokemon however way you want without anyone judging you (As you can clearly see in the cover). Unfortunately this can be quite controversial to the general public... but hey I appreciate Pokemon thinking ahead and having a modern mindset.

Crossing the LineAlmost 99.9999% of the comments I get on DA are very nice and complimentary. For this I am grateful and appreciative. I also appreciate the occasional criticism that suggests I try a different crop, color, or lens choice. Even after 35 years I feel it is vital to listen to all the input I get because there are occasional jewels of ideas that come from learned professionals and beginning amateurs alike. Sometimes I even like it more when someone who is new to photography makes suggestions because they aren't stifled by the "rules" we all learn when we start out.Crossing the Line3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently, I've had a few people say some interesting and absurd things. These comments are related to my having taken down my gallery of nudes. First of all, let me say, my motive for this action was simply time management. I run a business so I don't have time to respond to all the comments or even read them all.
The suggestion has been made that by me removing the nudes, by responding to horrid comments then hiding and blockin
DA's Insular Taste PhenomenonIt's been quite a while since I wrote a preachy "THINK ABOUT YO' ART"-type journal, and some of my newer watchers may not know that this is a particular(ly annoying) habit of mine. This is a subject I've had on my mind for quite some time for a number of reasons, and it's recently coalesced into a semi-soluble form so here we go. (As an aside- this journal does have some recycled ideas from a previous post of mine, but obviously I hadn't really said everything I wanted to on the subject.)DA's Insular Taste Phenomenon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's no mystery that I love this website. I came in at the tail end of the pre-critique wonder years, when the internet discovered and exploited that, yes, we don't always produce the highest quality art here. There's a lot of unpleasantness directed towards DeviantArt. At RISD, I made a point to never mention that I had an account here, because of the looks of disgust I would get haha and people would think about me differently. It was

How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was. I won't ever deny it; I use photoshop to take out distracting blemishes, but for the most part, my skin is how you see it. I wanted to go into a bit more depth on how I got to this place.

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you
