The deadline for the contest has been pushed back the 16th of July 12pm GMT. This is the last extension. Please plan accordingly.
Hello! After some deliberation I've decided it is time to hold my first contest. It's going to be based on my story and original characters. The theme is spring. You are free to interpret this time in any way you choose.
My story is set in a contemporary Dublin, but in an alternative timeline where magic is possible. Visually, this means the world has been influenced by different historical periods as the supernatural world seems somewhat more archaic than its technolog
Humm.... You're thoughts?I'm thinking about doing a story seires called Love? It's about these two friends who have completly different views on love decided to go on a date to end the debate of what is love. Saywer is a total romantic, Soul mates, love at first sight kind of guy whereas his best friend, Rose dislikes any of that stuff and cheesy romance and believes anything can be made romantic and doesn't have to be under that certain catagory. What do you think? Yes? No? I'll start the first part and submit it tonight. All views and ideas would be kindly welcomed.Humm.... You're thoughts?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

deviantART is applying to manage .artdeviantART is applying to manage .art3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
deviantaRT is applying to manage a new Top Level Domain called .art
Top Level Domain (TLD) is the technical name for ".com," ".net," ".org," or ".fr". These TLDs are controlled and issued by a worldwide organization called ICANN, short for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. When ICANN announced that it would accept applications for new TLDs, deviantART quickly realized that someone would try to nab ".art."
DeviantART is committed to have the .art TLD in the hands of representatives of the arts; people who know something about the Internet and the way art is presented and enabled by the Internet. Nobody has more experience with this than the deviantART community that we are all building, participating in, and sharing with each other every day.

MercenaryI do freelance as well as my full time job, and I am always setting up the next job. it's a safe bet, that if i'm breathing, I'm painting or hustling to get paid for more painting. That's what I do for a living. It's how I put food on the table, and porn in the bathroom.Mercenary4 years ago in Personal More Like This
That said, I thought it bore mentioning especially here on DA though, that I work for HIRE. If your sweet RPG project, or video game pitch has no budget at all for art, it will save both of our time if you don't try to tap me for artwork. I Do realize I'm passing up an amazing opportunity for me to make my portfolio way more awesome, and that I won't be getting that free publicity. It's a risk I'll have to take.
I'm not opposed to people making things out of their garage, in fact, I wholesale endorse it and want you to succeed with it. I sincerely hope your team is a massive success.
I can't work for free though.

I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."
Please stop and say hello and welcome seewaynewhite in his first week at deviantART.

A Mysterious Machine Appears: The Hunt for Gems!A Mysterious Machine Appears: The Hunt for Gems!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Welcome everyone, to the first contest in a long while! BlackWing and I are to host this event, and maybe to put a little artistic effort in it ourselves (but of course it wouldn't allow us to win, that wouldn't be very fair, would it?)
Here are the details for the event!
You are to draw one of your characters, whether it be a creature from Life Crystals or an original character, and they are sent by the human creators of the Skitters to help search for precious gems. These gems can be rubies, sapphires, emeralds, topaz, jade and even diamond! Find the prettiest gem you lay your eyes on! For the record, this gem will lead to the Skitter you want. If you want a blue or red gem for your Skitter, then have your character look for a Sapphire, Ruby, or any gem that has those colors. You can even search for rarer gems that I haven't stated yet.
You can even have your character search for a particular type of stone or raw steel for the body.
Next, you can put a little (or l

I know of two places you can buy eyes.
US: Van Dyke's Taxidermy
Personally I use a 10-14mm eye for my dolls. That is a standard size for birds, amphibians, some mammals and dolls so it's quite a common size to find.
You can also make your own if you have the time or inclination. You need to make a mould of a marble or something similar using platinum silicone, then when the silicone has cured you pour in crystal clear resin. You must use platinum silicone as tin silicone (RTV - room temperature vulcanization) silicone will inhibit the cure of the resin and it will stay tacky forever. You can paint the back of the resin cabochon with acrylics, inks, watercolours or

Curry ChipsI need to run something by you...because I am starting to think I have a medical problem which causes people who work in food shops to detest me.Curry Chips2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was in Matlock, Derbyshire the other day to watch a fancy light show. Was with the family, it was a nice evening, we went to a chipy shop for tea.
I walked into the chipy shop and knew almost immediately that there was only one thing I wanted...no fishy, no pies, no chickens...all I wanted was curry chips. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I see nothing wrong with wanting curry chips for tea. Many people eat curry chips. Curry chips are tasty.
I approached the chippy girl behind the counter, she asked what I wanted. I said curry chips. She nodded, got a plate and put lots of chips on it. It was all going very smoothly. She put the plate in front of me and said "I will just get the curry for your curry chips" and walked away.
She returned with a empty plastic pot and started to fill the pot with curry. I looked at her and said "don't worry, i'
