PE: Shading EmotesShading EmotesPE: Shading Emotes6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
'Ello there! If you've been on any social media site, you most likely in one form or another have used an emoticon. An emoticon is an icon that expresses emotion. Such as
Emotes are an easy way to express yourself and I'm going to teach you how to shade some.
Almost all emotes are sized to be 15x15 (unless you are making a larger one; tutorial by IceXDragon described here). You can use lots of programs to make them. I use MS Paint to make my emotes because I believe it's the easiest to control but you can use whatever you like.
An emote's outline will look like this (You can use it if you want. ) :
Here's what it looks like at a bigger scale.
Emotes should look circular like the one above. I would recommend this size for all emotes at a standard size level. At this stage, I like to mess with the emote to see what k

Note the group with keywords before it's too late!
Hello and welcome to Emote Secret Santa 4.0!
Our last three attempts worked out wonderfully--special thanks to last year's co-host Synfull--so Kyramy and I have decided to continue the project this year!
The aim of EmoteSecretSanta is to promote the creation of art in the community and ensure that every emoticonist can give and receive a present for the holidays this year.
For those unfamiliar with the concept, the group gathers a list of participants and then assigns each person one emoticonist to make a gift for, and one person they will receive a gift from. The presents and who they are being made for are kept secret and revealed on Christmas day. Although the gift giving takes place at Christmas, the group is open to all religions, with options available for those that may celebrate other (or no) festivals in that per

Did You Know - Premium MembershipPremium MembershipDid You Know - Premium Membership3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
A Premium Membership (short PM) allows you access to a few extra features that regular members can't make use of.
A few of those features are:
• change your username

Abstract & Surreal DDs for NovemberI think we're much smarter than we were.Abstract & Surreal DDs for November3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Everybody knows that abstract art can be art,
and most people know that they may not like it,
even if they understand there's another purpose to it.
Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only
what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.

2nd Round Voice AuditionsFinal Deadline is December 13, 20132nd Round Voice Auditions11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We'd like to thank everyone who participated in our first round of voice auditions. We're excited that many of the roles were filled. However, with such a big cast, we are still in need of more voices!
To recap from Round 1, these voices will be used in some fun promotional trailers for our fiction series. Note that our series is free-for-download (and available for a nominal cost on Amazon.com). We're not looking to make a ton of money with this. With that in mind, please understand there is no payment, other than our deepest gratitude. Of course, all actors will receive credit and a right to list voice-acting on your resume.
We are currently in great need of more male voices than female. However, we will be accepting auditions for both as we always have need for supporting and villain casting, as well as having stand-bys should an actor not able to participate later on.
Below are the listing of the male roles we are focusing on.
CodePLZ - What is the plan? The plan, in part, is to have a discussion.CodePLZ - What is the plan?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As we began to examine the Emoticons category we quickly learned that we had a bit of a mess to clean up, but fortunately it's a very cute mess and very fun to think about.
As a category, Chat Friendly Emotes isn't going to cut it anymore. There are Emotes in it that come from various inspirations, meanwhile, a very clear culture that has formed around Emotes that deviantART specifically has always supported. The ones that are 15 x 15 pixels in size doing all wonders of things. Providing a category for this specific, and very popular style is a must and this would split those Emotes from intermingling with other sized, shaped and styled Emotes.
The thought was to make this style reside within the new category, "Chat Friendly PLZ" but let's discuss that! Changing a category name takes us a matter of seconds to do, so we would love your input on the final name for the category - home to the adorable
SlutI recently said to a dA friend that being here had made me into a total slut, and naturally he wanted to know more. As I started to pen a reply it occurred to me that this was the sort of information I could share on my journal. What makes a woman a slut? How can I be more of a slut? Am I a slut and don’t know it?Slut5 months ago in Personal More Like This
With me you must understand I am English, middle class, repressed, reserved. When I first joined dA and started posting my artwork, I immediately discovered my sexual voice, and my fantasies to some extent became externalized. Although I have always stated that I was ordinary looking and unremarkable, on dA I suddenly became both desirable and beautiful. My protest about the size of my breasts were dismissed by men who prefer less well-endowed girls; my plainness by compliments on my erotic imagination; and my inexperience by every suggestion under the sun. Within a week I was no longer a dA virgin, within a month it had

Japan Trip...the Fukushima ShimmyA final word on Minamisanriku, then on to Fukushima.Japan Trip...the Fukushima Shimmy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There was one building I really wanted to shoot when we went to Minamisanriku. It was the place where Miki Endo worked. She was a lovely vibrant 24 year old newly wed who worked at the Minamisanriku Disaster Response headquarters. It was her responsibility to announce the warning of an approaching tsunami.
"Tsunami warning, get to higher ground", she repeated over and over again. In many of the videos from that fateful day, you can hear her voice echoing through the town as water rushed in and swallowed everything in it's path. She was on the second floor of the building. Thirty people worked there and when the tsunami came they all rushed higher and higher but Miki stayed at her post issuing warnings until the very last second in an effort to save as many lives as possible. Along with others, she hurried to the roof, but the raging tsunami ripped the skin off the building and gutted it, taking everything and everyone inside, and the

I stayed and did 4 hours so I could at least get my petrol money back. The irony is I didn't feel like going in and wanted to stay and photograph some of the flowers from my Mothers Day. I've done all the housework today and now I'm too tired to do it.

And now the history lesson
There is an old Hotel/Pub in Marble Arch, London , which used to have a gallows adjacent to it. Prisoners were taken to the gallows (after a fair trial of course) to be hung.
The horse-drawn dray, carting the prisoner, was accompanied by an armed guard, who would stop the dray outside the pub and ask the prisoner if he would like ''ONE LAST DRINK''.
If he said YES, it was referred to as ONE FOR THE ROAD.
If he declined, that prisoner was ON THE WAGON.
And in the 1500's
Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination w

The J. Paul Getty Museum has initiated an Open Content Program to share, freely and without restriction, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible.
A first sharing of 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection, including many masterworks, has just been made available and all are free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose.
In a brilliant stroke, the Getty Museum has liberated one of the top collections of art in the world not just for access but for use. The museum is literally “beaming up” the great works in its collection as living resources within the arts themselves, for study, for sheer per
Know your Basics - Composition (the manip way)The Rule of Thirds is another one of those expressions that you have probably heard before somewhere but aren't quite sure what it means. This article strives to shed some light on this rule as well as on how to use lines and shapes in your compositions to lead the viewer's eye to the important bits. There are some compositional rules and pointers that no artist should go without knowing!Know your Basics - Composition (the manip way)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Technical Part
Rule of Thirds
Thankfully this time, there are no hours upon hours of dry reading to be done because the Rule of Thirds itself can be explained rather easily:
"The Rule of Thirds states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections." (from the wikipedia article)
Or - summed up in one image:
Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject
