The Picture of Perfect Insanity Contest.Contest time, everyone! And it's called the "Picture of Perfect Insanity" contest.More Like This
Rules: Using either literary, digital, or traditional means of making art, show us how you think an insane person would see the world. What crazed thoughts lie behind their normal seeming face? What warped dreams can sustain their madness? Those are the questions you should ask.
Any mental illness can be used for the topic; but just remember you'll need to show us how it warps their views.
Phobias are also acceptable, but should best be taken to an extreme when entering this contest if you wanna go far.
No possessions of any kind; the devils haunting their subject must be their own.
No religious fanatics, mostly because most people who shove their views down other's throats are usually more ignorant than insane. If you're gong to use the whole "God willed me to do it!" angle, you'd better show us a mental problem behind it.
And finally no drug addictions or abuse; While we know people can experience some

Endless, monotonous minutes creep through the hallways of the mind and the labyrinth of the soul where men are left to face himself and his irresistible compulsions. These unspoken forces drive our deepest desires and fuel our most profound fears. We are powerless in front of them, just as we are powerless in the face of the march of time.
Do you hear it?
They call for you in the midnight hour, whispering in your mind’s ears the most secret of secrets.
Do you see it?
They appear to you from the corner of your eye, beckoning you to follow them down the rabbit hole.
The clock chimes. It’s time to listen up and follow suit. Will you come seek us in the darkened rooms filled with echoes of the past? Will you dance with us under the garish mercury moon? Will take our hands and join us through the Longest Night?

Summary: In the year 2021, the planet Earth and most of it’s inhabitants fell victim to a fatal nuclear war. Emerging from their bunker, Jessica Rose and Efraim Beasly are astounded by what they see. With strict instructions, they start their journey to Alaska, looking for the place called “Area 1-9-1-6”. Along they way they run into Rirans, humans and animals with overcharged immune systems due to the abundant amount of radiation in the air, that threaten the group’s survival. As the expedition starts to seem improbable, the group starts to question the Government’s real motives for the war.

We all know it, and we all know how annoying it is. "I know what it is but I don't remember the word".
that's the PG-13 version of what goes through our minds as we struggle to remember the word we KNOW we know.
I find that phenomenon to have a similar aspect when writing scripts and stories in general, I'm gonna go and call it writers presque vu.
So you have your idea, characters setting, all ready for the final screenplay / script/ whatever it is. You know the events like your own fridge but just as your fridge there's something missing, something tasty, that's in this case the lines of dialogue or some details specific to the scene.

"Just be yourself. Draw what you want, write and photograph what you feel like! No one shall force you. c: Just because a piece of artwork isn´t perfect, doesn´t mean it´s bad. Don´t be sad because you know someone viewed your art but didn´t favorite it. Not everyone likes to favorite everything they see on dA. Trust me. There´s lots of art I enjoy viewing but which I don´t favorite!

Your character in Missing Halloween!INTRODUCTIONMore Like This
Missing Halloween, an animation about two kids trick or treating, was previewed last year on Youtube:
However, the deadline was missed and was decided to remain its production on hold.
But not anymore, of course! Halloween is coming soon after all!
WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?
Are you looking forward to watching Missing Halloween?
Do you design your own characters?
Would you like to help with Missing Halloween's production?
Then this is your chance!!!
You can get your design featured in the animation Missing Halloween!
In the animation, there's a part of the story where it features locals in costume giving candies to the two main kids.
This is where you come in!
I decided that instead of randomly designing these people, I can give my fans the opportunity to have their designs featured in the animation!
And if there are too many designs contributed, I can use the others as kids who Trick or Treat in the background!

January Art Contest-Doodle on Maths paperOur first art contest in DA is up! And this time we have a doodle contest!More Like This
Very recently we have been observing many pieces of art on examination question papers and when some of us sat and discussed about it we were amazed. This was a real art form that had been missed out, all those endless hours mugging up stuff only to be written on sheets of paper and never be bothered with again. BUT the artist has his head wavering in creativity and doesn't miss out on his chance to create where others would see nothing.
This time we bring to you a maths paper and ask you to create on it.
Please print out a copy of the attached "CANVAS" and work on the same. Everything here depends on your quality, effort and class that you exhibit through doodling!

The Artist Behind The Lexus IS DesignMore Like This
Robert Evans (PSAS), a longtime member of the deviantART community, has succeeded in making a radical artistic statement about turning artists' visions into actual realities.
Robert's pathway to actualization of his vision was facilitated by forward-thinking executives at Lexus who reached out to the creative cutting edge, to deviantART artists, for new revolutionary design ideas for the production of their 2014 Lexus IS. The Lexus IS Design Contest was born and dA's Robert Evans has come away with the prize: experiencing having his personal artistic conceptualization of how an automobile should look and roll become a real world reality. As Grand Prize Winner, the new Lexus built to Robert's design was debuted at the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas before 60,000 US and international buyers and then featured at the Los Angeles Auto Show before 12,000 industry decision-makers and 4,000 media correspondents from 50 countries.

You can enter six-twelve characters. This is only if you want to enter a team (three girls; three boys).
You could always just draw one character (I'd prefer two; a boy and a girl), though.
Make sure their bio is in the description! I want to hear how they gained their powers, their personality, and who they live with or where they live!

You've just completed a painting so fine that Rubens himself has given up art forever. What artistic Rubicon is left for you to cross?
Poetry, of course.
Before we go any further it's very important to understand the grammar. You have two choices, either to never use punctuation or capitalization again, or to always use every form of punctuation all the time. No matter what you choose, you must always capitalize Poetry, as it will soon become the only person you talk to.
This is the skin of a poet. The pallor can only be achieved once you succumb to your inner angst.
Now that you've spent the past hour shaking and crying, you're ready to put words to

Traditional Publishing or Indie Publishing?Publishing WeekMore Like This
So you want to publish your book? In this day and age, usually the next question is: should you go Traditional or Indie?
It's a hard question to answer but I think it's something that only each individual can decide for themselves.
I decided to go Indie after several tries over ten years of submitting my manuscript to publishers, getting feedback, re-writing the book and then submitting again. Over and over the feedback was that because my work wasn't mainstream science fiction that the publishers weren't prepared to take the risk. I came to a point where I realised that I needed to decide if I wanted to keep trying to get Traditionally published, and likely end up rewriting my book into something I never wanted it to be, or if I wanted to go Indie.

Terry Pratchett, The Last Continent
On March 12th, 2015, the world lost a literary great. Sir Terry Pratchett, a conqueror of the fantasy/Sci-fi industry who not only wrote captivating stories, but threw in wonderfully weird dilemmas full or wit and humour. A truly talented, funny writer, who sported a black fedora hat, silver beard and an imagination most writers would envy.
Pratchett’s health decline has been well publicised; raising awareness for Alzheimer’s as well as funding and campaigning for more research into the debilitating disease. In fact he donated substantial amounts into organisations for this research; organisations that fans have sin
