Announcing The First Lit-Visual Alliance CONTEST!Announcing the first contest for theAnnouncing The First Lit-Visual Alliance CONTEST!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists.
So. In the spirit of thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I would try to do something about that. And so :iconlit-visual-alliance: was born.
As often as I hear literary artists complaining about lack of exposure, I hear visual artists complaining of a lack of inspiration and motivation to create art. And that, I must say, is simply nonsense. There is a massive amount of inspiration to be found on dA - and it's called th
Almost DDs: Volume 7I suggest DDs.Almost DDs: Volume 73 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It's a tricky business. You have to find a piece you're passionate about. You have to make a case that's convincing, but not begging or posh-sounding. I have had a few bursts of luck- 4 accepted suggestions, but the good bulk of my suggestions don't make it.
I realize that the GM have to make some tough choices. But I want to give my suggestions another chance, in case it was something on my end that was why they declined them.
And I still felt they deserved a feature.
As a note, a few pieces this time (again) are not eligible for DDs because the artist received a DD on a different piece after I suggested it.They'll have *s. Some of these pieces are also pending suggestions, but if a GM sees multiple suggestions of the same piece, I think it ups the chances!
So, without further ado, the Almost DDs, Volume 6!Please show these artists some love, and if you really love a piece, suggest it as a DD!

Collection: MasksCollection: Masks5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Halloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi
How to suggest a Daily DeviationHello!How to suggest a Daily Deviation2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
According to one of our polls at Traditionalists, there are many people who don't know how to suggest a Daily Deviation - too many, really. In this article you'll learn all about suggesting DDs: it'll be focused on Traditional Art category, but the general rules are the same for all the categories on dA.
So you've just encountered an outstanding work - or had one for ages in your favourites - and you'd like it so much to be seen by everyone on dA. Before you suggest anything, you need to check if its author had a DD within past 6 months, as one deviant can have only 1 DD per 180 days. How? Add "dds" to their profile address, so:
username.deviantart.com would turn into username.deviantart.com/dds
You may also reach that page by clicking "browse" in deviant's gallery (top left, between "feat

Added your questions! Ask me more and i will update this more.
Hey guys! Here's my FAQ! Of course, most of you already know all there is to know about my artworks, but this is gonna be an easy way to link people to all questions related to my art, and what's better, you ask the questions! XD Thats right, I have filled some generic stuff here so that's a place to start, but I would love it if you do the asking and I update the FAQ accordingly xDD
Rules for asking questions:
Please refrain from asking me questions about personal life that are too personal. For example, What is your favorite color? is a valid question, whereas Where exactly do you live? is not xD I just like to keep my personal stuff personal.
Dont ask me for tutorials. ah, well, the simple answer is, I will if I can. And surely, in the future, I will. ^_^

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.
