Getting Started in ComicsI got a great ask in my Tumblr about getting started in comics, and thought there were some watchers that might be looking for similar guidelines. So ... I figured I'd repost hereMore Like This
A little background, I had been putting off making Infinite Spiral since high school (that’s over 10 years). I would start then stop, because I had it in my head it wasn’t good enough-like it had to be this epic, perfect narrative. That’s not how learning to tell stories works … and the longer I waited, the closer it got to “you’ll never tell this story.” I was introduced to comics through a class in grad school, where I was studying serious game design. And it hit me there, if I don’t start telling this story, I will never, ever get it out there. I have to stop worrying about being “good enough.” And I’
Pretty Pages for Non-Premium MembersPretty Pages for Non-Premium MembersMore Like This
One afternoon, you are randomly browsing a deviantART and then you see a piece of art you really like. Hoping to see more amazing art similar to the piece you have just seen, you go to the page of the deviant who made the afore mentioned artwork and notice that the deviant is a Premium Member. He/she has a beautiful page that has plenty of gallery skins, custom widgets, polls, journal skins, etc. then you remember the horrible truth: You are a non-Premium member and as such you cannot use these amazing features. You feel dejected and angry at yourself for not having enough points/cash for a Premium Membership. Because you don't have a Premium Membership and you think you'll never have enough points or cash to get one, you deactivate your dA account and go cry in a corner.
OK, maybe you don't do all that, but you do sometimes get jealous of the things Premium Members can do on their page, right? Please say yes; I'd feel so embarrassed if I was

PE: Profile Designing with CSS[deviantART related]More Like This
Want to learn how to make your page not just nice or pretty, but spectacular, unique, and all-around awesome? This article covers the newest stage in the evolution of profile design: Profile CSS.
Please keep in mind that this article is only for Premium Members who are not beginners to profile design. If this is your first time trying your hand at customizing your profile page, you'll probably find the following articles more helpful than this one.
Why use CSS?
Although setting up and learning to code CSS for your profile can be a hassle, there are a great deal of benefits to using CSS instead of only HTML:
Fonts: CSS allows for almost complete control over font styles, colors, and sizes (only limitation is that fonts must be Web Safe fonts or Google Fonts). HTML on DA is limited to only a certain n
5 ways to get things doneDear, deviantart fellow artistsMore Like This
Continuation of my journal post "5 reasons why we fail to get things done"
Often we try to be as productive as possible - so many things to do, so many artworks to make. But then comes the procrastination, indecisiveness, lazyness and other excuses that come in our way. How to deal with them, how to accomplish all we ever wanted..? Here are my 5 tips for you that I have been doing for a while and I hope that It'll help you too.
1. 3 tasks for a day.
In the morning or in the previous evening write down 3 main things you want/need to do in a day. Be realistic, but strive for the things that will help you develop the skill, move you closer to bigger goals. Check them, change them depending on each day and cross them over when you have made them happen. You will k
Testing LightfastnessAh, watercolors - a skilled artist can make them look so fresh and easy! Without confidence in your paints and the affect that water has on them they can run amok.More Like This
Light can cause pigments to change drastically, which was something I wanted to see for myself. This project gave me a big jolt of confidence in my materials! Plus, a lot of hands on practice with graded washes.
Even when the paints faded or changed color, it was a big help to see exactly what those changes looked like - it is one thing to read about it, but so much nicer to learn by doing and seeing.
There are lightfastness testing kits available for sale, and several different methods of testing paints and pencils. I like this method because I didn't have to buy anything new, such as picture frames.
All that is required is to paint out some swatches, cut them in half, and then expose half to sunlight and hide the other half in darkness.
What do do as an artist in training.There are many ways to Rome they say. But I find most aspiring artists lost and asking me for guidanceMore Like This
and this is what I tell them.
Find out for yourself what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions.
Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of bookcovers, or card games.
Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must find the best work on the market in those fields.
Find out what makes the best art of your favorite field the best art. What do they paint? How do they paint it? With knowing this you can find out about the things you need to study.
The most basic study aims are the following:
What forms of light art there? And how does it influence things?
The book Color and Light by James Gurney will give you a lot of insight.
How do you paint shapes? How do you light them the right way?
You will learn a l
The Myth of TalentThe Myth of TalentMore Like This
If there's one comment that is made more often than any other on any decent piece of artwork it's "you're so talented."
It's also the one [positively intended] comment I've seen the most artists bristle at, sometimes even retort. For some of us, it's a pet hate. Why?
We know it's meant as a compliment, so we smile and say thank you and try to resist the urge to insist that 'talent' is the biggest myth there is. Not only is it a myth, at its worst the use of the word is potentially destructive to the artistic community.
What's so wrong with the word 'talent'?
You might not realise it, but calling someone talented can often feel like a backhanded compliment. No skilled artist woke up one day just being able to do what they can do. We were all born completely unable to do just about anything useful. But through daily practise we learned how to use our limbs for motility, our voices for words, an
So much to assumeThis is nothing new. I've been observing it for quite a long time in various places, including my personal surroundings. I work with traditional media and take care of traditional art category on dA. People, basing on these two facts, very often assume that I dislike digital art, fan art or manga, or treat them as inferior, or name it whatever else that way. I receive comments that place traditional art (as in, not only the dA category, but generally) above any other types of art, with the commenter usually expecting me to agree - but not because they treat their opinion as the "right" one, which is what you'd mostly expect, but because they think they are speaking about my opinion, somewhat more than theirs.More Like This
And that is, my fellow deviants, something I extremely despise of. It's only yet to be decided if it's the "anything other than traditional is inferior" part or the "this surely must be my opinion" assumption that puts me off more.
Let's go back to that countdow

Fella was brought to life thanks to switched, who designed him back in April 2001 for a mascot contest.
Back then he didn't look exactly as we know him today, his figure was a lot more basic and circular and his expression wasn't as human as we're used to today. However his main features remain, his mischievous look and his colors, most probably based on the site layout's at the time

A (modern) history of dA emoticonsIntroMore Like This
As you wander around deviantART pages, there is noticeably one art medium that invades almost every element of the site. Whether it is the deviantART galleries, journals, news section, comments, forums, chatrooms, avatars or even dA profiles, it is hard to find a spot that hasn't been infiltrated by a familiar set of small, coloured, pixel circles. The art form I am talking about is of course the emoticon and throughout the past 10 or so years they have been happily adopted by deviantART and its community.
Although emoticons can often be spotted on a wide range of other instant messengers (IMs) and social media sites, deviantART has come to house a unique branch of these miniature art pieces. Whilst the majority of these alternative sites opt for simple, predominately yellow emotes with a range of basic expressions, the art community here at dA have stretched the art form far beyond its natural boundaries and developed entirely new styles of emoticons

He was an artist you might not know.

It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead
R.I.P. H.R.Giger (1940-2014)I was shocked to learn today that Giger passed away just a day ago as a result of a fall. Most of you probably know that H.R.

I discovered Giger when I was 12 when I found his book Biomechanics in the Ventura, CA Barnes and Noble and was blown away by his universe of weird detail. I spent years after that collecting his books and aspiring to become him.

This is a beautifully written work of art. The diction is amazing. The author has a talent for choosing the right words that convey profound emotions. Every line is so well written and the imagery, paints such a beautiful story in the mind. This piece is truly a work of great literature, very atmospheric, detailed, emotional, and these are some of the reasons why it is the feature of the week.
In case you’re interested the poem can be found here.
On to the feature!

Education and inspirations
He was born on the 16th of August 1876 (it was Wednesday) in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Before he became a student of the great Ilya Repin, he studied at the Art School of Anton Ažbe in Munich in 1898, so you can see that he gathered quite a good art education.
From 1902 to 1904 he travelled around Russian North. He became fairly inspired by the folklore of these a
Ancient Egyptian Art and MythologyAuthor's NoteMore Like This
Ancient Egypt was a HUGE society with a rich culture and a highly developed religion. Egypt is one of the most famous ancient cultures because of its unique funerary practices and its incredible architectural feats. Now some of you are reading this because you're interested in Ancient Egyptian art and others of you are (like me) take an art history course and reading this to help study. I will be tailoring this journal for those taking an art history course but no one wants to be bogged down with bland information so I'll try to keep this interesting (not that it's hard because it's ANCIENT EGYPT!)
Note that dates aren't terribly important just make sure you are in the right century
What you really need to know
The entire period of Ancient Egypt lasted from 3500 BCE to 1070 BCE and was broken into four periods: the Predynastic and early dynastic periods (which we are
Art History:Greek and Hellenistic Art"Hellenistic art is the art of the Hellenistic Period dating from the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC to the emergence of ancient Rome as signified by the Battle of Actium in 31 BC" (Wikipedia, sorry. )More Like This
In the Hellenistic era,most of the art had a Greek hue to it. Much of the culture and way of life were Greek at this time. (Because they were Greek! )
"Idealism gave way to naturalism, the culmination of the works of fourth-century b.c.e. sculptors Lysippos, Skopas, and Praxiteles, all of whom emphasized realistic expression of the human figure."
Byzantine ArtSome history…More Like This
Byzantium was the name given to the Eastern part of the Roman Empire. Known by many other names, such as Romania, it was born under the ruling of Diocletian when he divided the Roman Empire in two parts: Western and Eastern, in 286. It stretched roughly through the East of Italy, Greece and the Anatolian Peninsula – in some periods covering as far as the Northern coast of Africa and South Andalusia. It endured attacks from Barbarians, Sassanids, Persians, Arabs and Slavics until the famous falling of Constantinople in 1453.
Lasting some 1000 years more than its twin Western Roman Empire, Byzantium retained and developed the Greco Latin heritage with some aspects of its own , and always dreamt of restoring the original universality of the (whole) Roman Empire.

Art History: Greek TragedyWhat is "Tragedy"?More Like This
Tragedy is a genre most people are familiar with. Hamlet is a tragedy. Movies labelled as ‘tear jerkers’ are often tragedies. If you pare it down enough, it can be as simple as 'a story where a lot of bad things happen to the protagonist'. This would fit almost every tragedy ever written, but it's not very helpful for understanding the complexities of the genre, or what it contributes to storytelling. There are almost countless sub-genres of tragedy, and every one has specific rules and tendencies that further define it from 'tragedy' as a whole. This is a construct of ages of evolution in the genre, which started, alongside comedy, with the Greeks.

Art History - Greek and Hellenistic ArtIntroductionMore Like This
The period of Greek Art began from the Cyclidian and Minoan civilization. Ancient Greek Art and Hellenistic Art have and had been influenced by several other cultures and their art. We are going to look at the latter part of the Ancient Greek Art period on to the Hellenistic period from Geometric Period, Oriental Period, Archaic Period, Classical Period and Hellenistic Period respectively. This will also include some context, social, religious, or political, to go along with it. This article will mainly focus on the art form in potteries, sculptures friezes in temples if possible. Architecture has not been included for the sake of already lengthy size. Click the images to see an enlarged view in sta.sh.

Islamic ArtIslamic art was born in the 7th century within the Omeya dynasty; some a hundred years after the Prophet Muhammad ibn Abdallah began to preach the Islamic message. So “Islamic art” refers to the art produced since then in all Islamic countries, thus covering an extensive – and varying – land in the Middle East, Northern Africa and even Europe (Al Andalus).More Like This
During the Omeya dynasty the first distinctive elements were born and spread: mosque, horseshoe arch, minaret, mosaic and vine and shell as ornamental motifs. From then on, influences from many different neighbouring and invading cultures were incorporated (but not limited to these):

Art History Project- Omar KhayyamMore Like This
Omar Khayyam, (Lit: "Omar The Tentmaker), was born, (circa 1051), at Nishapur in Khorassan, (A region in N.W. Persia). Omar was a very inquisitive boy, in possession of a good mind, and soaked up the education afforded by his father's prosperity, ...judging by his later achievements. Omar probably learnt his father's trade and became a tent-maker for a while. Omar travelled around his country and nearby areas visiting places like Samarkand and Isfahan, (Isfahan has some of the most beautiful Temples I have ever seen!, the entrance to the Main one has tiles of the most exquisite and colourful designs unrivalled anywhere in my humble opinion...), no doubt exchanging ideas and researching with some of those he met. He died in 1131 and is buried in the Khayyam Garden at the mausoleum of Imam Zadeh Mahruq in Nishapur.

Hieronymous BoschMore Like This
Hieronymus Bosch was a Flemish painter who was born in 1450 and buried on August 9, 1516. His birth name was Jeroen Anthoniszoon van Aken, but he changed his last name to Bosch after the last syllable of this birthplace, ‘s Hertogenbosch. He came from a family of artists; his father, uncle, and grandfather were all painters. However, Hieronymus Bosch was much more than a mere Renaissance artist with an interesting background – he was a master of using a brush to spread paint across a canvas.
Over his lifetime, Bosch, who had many imitators, created only 25 to 30 paintings definitively, and signed merely seven of these. His patrons are unknown. However, King Philip II of Spain collected some of his best work, such as “The Garden of Earthly Delights.” This painting (above; second image is the inside) has many facet
Something Borrowed :icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz:More Like This
The pieces that I've selected for this feature all have something in common: they've taken other people's material and made something new from it.
In this first poem, the poet has taken a snippet of conversation overheard at an art opening and shaped and framed it - turning it into a poignant work of art itself. It's quite brief but gives you a lot to think about.
This piece deliberately attempts to imitate the style of some of Edgar Allen Poe's poems: it takes the form of a love poem to the late writer himself, weaving in references to his life and works. I find AzizrianDaoXrak's use of colours here rather delicious; they transform a mildly disturbing theme into something beautiful.

My deviantART StoryUnlike most deviants who seemed born to the endeavor, I was first inspired to start writing creatively the early Winter of my sophomore year in college when I stopped to admire the bare branches of a tree on my walk home one afternoon.More Like This
I probably stood outside next to the sidewalk staring into a grey sky for an hour just watching the wind try to catch the arms of that oak and no longer finding the leaves that used to be there to hold on to. And me, bright-eyed with all the time in the world, wearing some black band shirt to contrast with my red nose, flushed cheeks and frozen tipped ears.
When I got back to my apartment, I wrote a draft which - while I didn't know it at the time - would end up indicative of all of my future writings as it would go through about five major edits over the course of more than a month which would lead to most of what I had written being stripped from it until it became this:

I've been an on again off again deviant since 2007, my time spanning a whopping FOUR accounts, because I'm a little bit crazy. This one is sticking forever, though. I promise. I can't remember how I first discovered this wonderful site, but I remember why I first joined: I was a 14 year old dork who was way too obsessed with anime/manga and fan art. I wanted to be a manga artist SO BADLY. And if that's your dream, hey, there's nothing wrong with that, but I wanted it for stupid reasons. My parents bought me a laptop for my 15th birthday, and I found deviantART.
I was really into manga style art and realism. Odd combination, I know. Here are some pieces by my favorite artists from when I first joined:
