New Art jam / Challenge ReminderNew Art Jam July 16th - July 31stMore Like This
Clothing can be difficult for the artist, from the design aspects and making sure the design fits the character, to drawing correct shapes and folds. So this jam, we focus on clothing.
Pick a character, any character and design two outfits for them. One should be something the character would wear and one should be something that they would never wear.
Submit them on the same deviation and submit them to the current art jam folder.
Have fun with this one.
July Monthly Challenge is still going!
Focus on a more obscure mythological creature/being. (No vampires, unicorns, mermaids, angels or werewolves) Every culture has a subset of mythological creatures and beings that haven’t been mainstreamed.
Your goal this month is to portray one that hasn’t been mainstreamed. You can redesign them as you want, as long as you include their origin in your description.

What is the moment when Middle-earth was born in Tolkien's mind? It could very well be the moment when he saw this verse from a Middle-English poem, describing the rising of the Evening Star. The spark of inspiration that became a Star of Hope... Let it be a spark of inspiration for some great stories and pictures for the July topic - Stars. Thanks to SilivrenTinu for the suggestion!
So in June, our topic was Languages, which were Tolkien's motivation for creating his fantastic world. In July, we would like to honour his inspiration: that moment when Earendel - the Evening Star from Crist, became Earendil with a Silmaril upon his brow, the Evening Star rising above Middle-earth and bringing hope.

Official W.I.T.C.H. Hypno Art Contest!This will be my first ever contest and I thought about how I could make it big so I decided to offer big prizes and as many contest winners and runner ups will be given prizes as well as a grand prize winner I want this to be as successful as possible for this contest and I wanted to add an angle to it as well so I thought of my favorite show of all time I must say W.I.T.C.H. and than I thought it would be ok to just post normal W.I.T.C.H. art like you can find all over DA AND LET ME TELL YOU THEIR ARE SOME GREAT ONES OUT THERE, but I also have seen some unique types out their two some that add my personal favorite angel hypnosis. It to me adds new feeling to the world of W.I.T.C.H. and I wanted to use some type of effect in the art submitted so I thought it would be great if some of the art entries had some characters of W.I.T.C.H. under the spell of the horn of hypnos (i.e. hypnotized forever etc, etc).

Contest: Crossovers! As kids, we often mashed our toys together, regardless of Copyright. Superman would take command of G.I. Joe to defeat the combined forces of Doctor Doom and the Decepticons, while Barbie took a break from her idealistic lifestyle to become a Pokemon master. And the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got recruited into Starfleet and taught Spock the wonders of pizza. (And from the furor arose Mister Rogers in a blood-stained sweater.)More Like This
And thus, the Crossover was born. It's something we never really outgrew, either. To this day, seeing our favorite characters from different stories meet and compete is a guilty pleasure that we all like to indulge in. So now's your chance to indulge yourselves for prizes!

The history of the birthday cakeOrigin of the birthday cakeMore Like This
In most parts of the world a birthday is just not a birthday without a cake. I thought it would be interesting to learn how this tradition started and how it transformed from one culture to the other.
Cake, the word
The word Cake goes back to the 13th century. The word is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse "kaka". It is described as a baked flour confection sweetened with sugar or honey; it is mixed with eggs and often includes milk and fat.
The cake evolution
Cakes were very different from what we know today, in ancient Greece they started off as bread-like, sweetened with honey.
In the middle-ages, Germany used a sweetened bread-dough in the shape of baby Jesus to commemorate his birthday. It was later that the Birthday Cake truly emerged as a celebration item

Hello beautiful deviants,
As I quickly mentioned before, projecteducate will be holding an Artisan Crafts week from August 19th to September 1st.
cakecrumbs and I know that Artisan Crafts is quite broad and we want to reflect its wide spectrum so we are planning to include 14 different crafts articles (one in the AM and one in the PM for 7 days). Neither cakecrumbs nor I are proficient in every single craft so we're looking for your help to educate the community on what you do best! The articles can be in the form of a spotlight on your craft, how to's, tips and tricks, interviews etc. Anything educational, really.
Also, don't be scared, the articles don't need to be super long essays either. The articles can be as short or as long as you want.
So, what do you say? It's a great opportunity to show the world something you are passionate about.

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.

How To Suggest a DD
First, make sure the deviant hasn't received a daily deviation in the last 6 months. Go to [username].deviantart.com/dds to see a deviant's DDs.Next, send me a note with the subject "'DD Suggestion". In the note, give me a thumbnail [:thumb######:] for the art you w

Faux FoodIf you browse the culinary art circles, you'll often see comments on skilled artisans' deviations reading, "It's a shame you have to eat that."More Like This
Outside of culinary arts, food deviations attract the opposite: "It looks delicious. It's a shame you can't eat it."
It's an endlessly amusing juxtaposition. We want to preserve the art, but sometimes the inedible version is just so tempting you feel the desire to consume it anyway.
Many deviants use a variety of mediums to portray fun, quirky, and sometimes deliciously realistic food. Here are a few examples from five different mediums used to create more permanent versions of favourite food items.

Holiday Card Project 2012More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

I want the main character to be very pinup. I'd like any of these ideas on some papuh.
+++ A rendition of my female pyramid head
+++ Evil Cheryl from SH3/ Revelation
+++ The nurses from homecoming/movies.
I'd like them to be in a cute, sexy pose, and in the background, I'd love to have the Halo of the Sun incorporated, with some barbed wire, metal grate, rust, blood, etc in the background. You could even have the pinup itself sitting on top of the halo of the sun; that would be awesome too.
If any of you can help me out with this, I'd pay you happily. I just need some clean lineart, and preferably on paper so that I can take it with me to get this tattooed soon. If you can do this, or know anyone who can, please leave a comment or a note for me. I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER. I NEED THIS ON MY SKIN.

Need people who take custom pc'sBecause since my human contest became crap, I want to commission some people for custom humanoids. Who ever can create me a character with the same guidelines as in my contest, (see guidelines here: http://thewatchingsunrise.deviantart.com/journal/Contest-update-OFFICIALLY-CLOSED-319589452) I'd love to commission you. I'm only going to commission two people for now, but I'll still be looking, so if you comment on this saying you do customs and can draw human(oid)s [aka: humans, anthros, vampires, werewolves, etc. anything that is, can become, or looks like a human] then I'll probably commission you later on if I don't choose you right now. It also depends on the prices, because I'm still trying to save up for a premium. I'm only willing to spend from 60-100 points per commission. If more people have lower prices, I may commission more than two. Anyway, just throwing that out there if you're looking to snatch some points or need them for some other odds and ends.More Like This

Team Rocket are the primary antagonists of the Pokemon Anime. While they set out to steal Ash Ketchum's Pikachu and various other Pokémon in almost every episode, they always fail in the end. In more recent episodes, however, they still follow Ash, yet their focus has drifted towards other objectives such as Jessie's Pokémon Contest streak. They use various disguises, traps, and schemes to trick Ash's group into a false sense of security, and after being revealed, they give a poetic speech, known as their motto, that often changes slightly throughout each season.

Just because you shot it in the street...PE: JUST BECAUSE YOU SHOT IT IN THE STREET IT DOESN'T MAKE IT "STREET PHOTOGRAPHY"More Like This
Street Photography is a largely misunderstood and misinterpreted photography genre.
Browsing dA's Street Gallery I'd say that people are under the impression that street photography is photography of:
1 street signs
2 side-walk close-ups
3 love padlocks
4 shoes (All Stars preferably)/photographer's feet
5 graffiti/tags/street art/cool vandalism
6 empty roads
9 abandoned buildings/urband decay/trash
10 cool cars
11 cosplayers posing in fairs
12 family in family-trips, friends in cool poses
13 sexy models in subways/women wrestling in swimming suit (don't ask, I don't know)
14 lights bokeh
15 light paintings
So, let's try to kill the most common misunderstandings:
Street photography is not photography of (empty) streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street.
Street photography most definitely is not photography of your All Stars shoes in the st

What mood is that?
You are well-aware of the importance of this project, in fact you can't wait to get to it! Too bad you promised your friends to go for a drink, and then there's that movie. Also, your productivity is at its strongest at Midnight, first Tuesday after the Full Moon, starting earlier would be a waste of time. Make sure you are well-rested! After all, is there a better way to prepare yourself for a productive tomorrow than an enjoyable today?
Your diagnosis: Procrastination positive.

You really want to, you've worked hard to develop the skills you have and you enjoy every minute of doing what you love. And besides, people say that your artworks are...nice. Cute. Doesn't that count for something? Sure it does, there is no reason to panic and pointlessly push yourself forward. Enjoy your coffee break!
Besides, even if you didn't like the current level as much, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it at the moment. So many unfortunate happenings stand right between you and your dream. Recognizing any of the following?

You're right! After all, you are a human being, not a machine, waking up early every morning, heading to school/work, afterwards taking care of the household/kids/your homework, studying, you barely even finish all the tasks during the 24 hours that's been given to everyone.

The CR Stamp ProjectMore Like This
Stamps are a great way to show your support for a project, a person or a group of people, spread awareness for a cause or promote a contest. It is also valid to do them just for fun, with just a funny image and/or message.
Since their introduction to the deviantArt galleries, millions of stamps have been created with a great variety of messages, both silly and serious, and you can see them all over the place, from journals to profile widgets.
The Community Relations department exists to encourage, facilitate and develop the relationship with our deviantART community. Our goal is to nurture our community by encouraging, stimulating artists to create, collaborate, and participate in a friendly, safe, and supportive artistic environment.

PE: Guidelines to Starting your Own Craft BusinessGuidelines to Starting your Own Crafting BusinessMore Like This
So you make cute crafts, and probably someone offered you money for them. Maybe you need the money, and if you're like me, you need it to buy more crafting supplies. Whatever the reason, starting your own crafty business is a decisions that you should take seriously... it's not as easy as opening an Etsy account and setting some random prices for your work. There is a lot of things to consider to keep the business going, your money safe, your name clean, and your costumers happy.
By no means this is an absolute guide, merely a few guidelines of things I've found important or questions I get asked often by people interested in opening their own business. Most of this tips are intended for online selling, but they should apply for other ways of selling too. I will probably do more detailed guides in the future, as I learn more myself.
To begin with, don't forget to research as much as you can! If you're rea

Culinary is the art of preparing and/or cooking foods to be as pleasing for the palate as it is for the eye.
Not many types of art can claim to be as nourishing for your soul as they are for your body. Culinary arts is appreciated by everyone in the world because it is highly linked with our survival. Also, if you think about it, it is one of the most accessible forms of art around. You probably even subconsciously practised Culinary Arts several times without knowing it.
Example: someone told you to assemble a plate of cheeses, meats and breads? I'm sure you didn't just throw everything on a plate, somewhere in the back of your mind you styled it to your liking.
Style and photograph your piece
To be able to share your culinary art creations with the rest of the world, you need to be able to photograph it. The way you present your piece is important.
