New Roulette with...Cassy-Blue!More Like This
A couple of years ago, before becoming the proprietor of the most interesting nightclub in the multiverse, I was able to chat from time to time with some of my favorite artists and post those chats under the heading of a little podcast called Roulette. I’ve missed those chats.
I'm very fortunate in that I know some extremely cool (and extremely charming) people and I love hearing what they’ve been up to and learning more about what makes them tic. So I said, “Jade, just let Kij run the bar every now and again. Fritz and Keket will keep the chairs from being flung. You go out there and have a drink with some more of your favorite artists and chat about whatever the heck comes up.” I thought my inner monologue had made a pretty good point, so that’s what I did.

We Give a F*** How the Site LoadsDevelopers can be angry people sometimes. This is actually quite the understatement and dt is no exception to that assessment. With web development in particular, there are several moments during the day where we are astounded, perplexed, and irritated by why something works the way it does--often over things beyond our control like lack of uniform web standards.

The Truth About Selling FanartUpdate notice as of January 17, 2013: I have given this guide a MAJOR overhaul. It was originally written over a year and a half ago, and since then my own views and understanding of copyrights has changed. I felt that this guide should reflect those changes, so if you read this guide in the past, please take a moment to look through it again as I have added MANY new topics, information, and sources.

All Roads Lead to DeviationIn a week it will be April 15th, 2015. Which in my memory is the day fifteen (15) years ago that we embarked on a new project we'd come to call DeviantArt. jark and I agreed for him to wind down projects on the DMusic Network and instead focus his energy on a similar platform for an emerging group of digital artists we were watching closely as fans. Soon after, he found matteo who was working on an education resource for digital artists known as WastedYouth.org and asked him for some perspective on the project. As a high functioning digital artist and photoshop master (I believe he had co-authored a book on photoshop by this time at age 18!) matteo (Matthew Stephens) made many contributions to what became DeviantArt at this critical moment, not the least of which was the NAME 'DeviantArt'! But perhaps more importantly the idea to include all artists on the platform, not just wallpapers and art made for customizing your computer. jark created the ability for us to easily create newMore Like This

How to have a Rewarding Commission ExperienceCommunity WeekMore Like This
So, you want to buy some lovely artwork or literature but you have a lot of questions rolling around in your head. Who do I trust? How do I find artists/writers? What do I want or need? How much can I pay? Those can be tough questions to answer but I will endeavor to answer them.
Now, I don't want to go all over the place and have a random article that just goes in fifty different directions so I will use the commission-buying process as my guide. Here we go!
Step 1: What do You want?
First of all, you need to establish what you want or need. This would include deciding which medium(s) and style(s) of art you want and how much you can afford. You should already know what you want when you start the commission buying process. If you do not have a clear idea of what you want, don't buy anything.". There's no need to spend your points or cash if you don't want anything, OK?
Step 2: Search

And said OC is in the form of a wolf. ôO° My original comment was just a reply to a user who noted how well made the pic was, but also said they hoped the canon was not paired with the OC (most people, including myself, don't like bestiality).

In The Shadow of Dragons
"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"

There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised

Fantastic Four Trailer
There’s a new Fantastic Four trailer and oh em gee does it look good. It’s so well-cast, and looks to have the balance of witty humor and emotional gravity we’ve come to expect from Marvel films. This could just be the low-key best blockbuster of the summer. What do you think? What summer hit are you most looking forward to?

In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
Hello! I’m Nancy, but most people know me as Anoya. I live with my two Norwegian Forest Cats Dio & Dex in a little country called the Netherlands. I like to do photography, but I secretly also love to crochet amigurumi. I have a huge passion for Animals, Plants & Nature (APN) which might be quite obvious since I’ve been the APN Photography Community Volunteer twice for over two and a half years in total. I still feature Daily Deviation suggestions in my journal since all of them are worthy of being featured and deserve extra exposure. I also think the artists should know their work has been suggested and that it’s being loved and appreciated!

Please like I said before if you watch me solely for Senior Selections, don't. I suggest that you watch SeniorSelections instead because I might not be continuing to post every single week from now on. The original idea for the articles was that the admins would take in turns in posting the articles and I think we may start doing this depending on what my co-admins cinyu, Nichrysalis, MiloticScale agree to. I will be discussing this with them this week.
THIS WEEKS SENIOR SELECTIONS:
Senior Selections #50 Before we welcome you back to this week's selections, we, the admins of SeniorSelections, would like to note that Endorell-Taelos is currently on hiatus and that any SeniorSelections articles will be posted by cinyu, MiloticScale, or Nichrysalis in the meantime.More Like This

Hai! I had this wonderful idea for a platform for DA community to express their opinion on various topics and it's finally happening
I'm well aware that these articles will probably get quite lengthy (especially this one!) but I'm hoping this will result in some interesting discussions. (which is encouraged)
The Community voices will be posted fortnightly with one topic at a time! I tried to "collect" people with various experiences on DA so I'm inviting you to meet them:

seniormentors is a great group bringing together senior and non-senior deviants, giving the opportunity for beginners to benefit from more experienced artists or just for someone else's point of view.
"The Seniors Mentoring Project dates back to 2003, it's a project that helps members of DeviantArt to better themselves in the artwork that they produce. Senior Members of DA (the members) provide the community with informative blogs, criticism and one-on-one mentoring to answer any questions inquisitive deviants may have, and help them improve their artwork all together."
The help can come from simple Critique Nights at #seniors to a full mentorship by a senior member. Critique Nights are fun. You can find me there from time to time, giving critiques. Everybody can participate by requiring a critique and giving critiques as well. And since the community of deviants who hang there is diverse, you have a b

Mentoring field: Anime & Manga
As a mentor I will be mentoring the Digital Art area of the Anime and Manga Gallery.
My goal is to show you my way of coloring, linearting, creating backgrounds and anatomy, so that you can use this knowledge to create your own style as an artist.
Tools I prefer for mentoring
Livestream - Picarto or Join.me
I learn from watching others, which is also my way of mentoring. Showing it through Livestreams and you gulp it!
I don't see art as explainable. This is why I cannot explain you my way of doing - I SHOW you my way of doing. You have to watch and try it yourself!
However, please bring patience and motivation with you. Getting better from today to tomorrow - this shouldn't b
