Collection: Urban CatsMore Like This
They are always there. The street sentinels. Witnesses in the night. The urban cats. Some insist a cat always prefers human company, a warm bed and provision of food and affection. So why are these felines out here? In the cat there is an independence like no other animal one shares a life with. A cat cannot be “owned.” A cat chooses you to be allowed to groom and feed and love him. If the unspoken pact somehow fails, then the cat, uncompromising, moves on to survive the cold, cruel streets on his own. But he is free. Forever free.
“I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.”
– Edgar Allan Poe

This artist has a very special and unique style, the simplicity of this artwork is what really catched my eye though, everything flows in a way that makes you focus entirely on the character without any distractions, the unusual pose and perspective brings it alive, it's intense and simply beautiful.

Adoptables, Basics for AdoptersSince I've been asked these questions a lot, I thought to write some journals about it. This is from an Adopter's point of view.More Like This
What are adoptables?
Adoptables are "characters" that you can purchase for your personal use. They can be animals, humans, objects... Anything and everything can be turned into an adoptable.
What exactly *is* it that I'm adopting?
You're adopting the *character* itself, not the design, not the art, just the character.
Take this adoptable:
Art = The drawing itself = Right remains to the artist
Original Species = The lines = Right remains to the artist, unless the species is for adoption too (Not valid in case of existing species such as wolves, cats, etc....)
Design = Black coat/Golden wings/Pattern on Tail = Right remains to the artist
Character = (Original Species + Design) = This is yours
You are basically adopting the right to use the character as a whole, species + design/pattern. Us

Literary Compass - Vol. 15WelcomeMore Like This
If one is looking for Literature, you don't need to go far on deviantART. There is a large community of writers and a plethora of work to peruse. Featuring genres such as fantasy, mystery, horror, and romance, one would be hard-pressed to find an area not covered. However, due to the nature of the site, shorter works tend to get more focus. It's easier to quickly read a poem or a short story, and thus many of the feature articles on dA showcase those works. However, there are many novelists and serial writers among the mix, oftentimes fighting an uphill battle to have their works seen and appreciated.
With that in mind, I have started an article to spotlight some of those artists and their literary-worlds. The works covered in this feature will exclusively be long-form fiction such as novels, trilogies, etc., or fiction serials.

Some time ago, I wrote a journal in which I mentioned how there are always a lot of people wanting to become a CV one day and that's great! The problem is that many people think that you need to get the ^ symbol to start doing what a CV does, but if you have this mentality, sorry to tell you my friend, but you're already a step behind.

In the time honoured tradition of digital dolling, for Halloween I'm running a Digital Doll Costume Party Collab.
The theme is fairly simple, do a digital doll of yourself in your dream costume/cosplay. Whether that's an original fantasy piece, a giant pumpkin, or dressed up as a character from TV/Comic/Book/Film etc.
The doll should be based on you, so don't be afraid of doing Arwen from LOTR with blonde hair because you're blonde. But if you wanted to you could wear a pixel wig too
The doll must be standing alone with no background (though small props like broomsticks and the like are allowed) because the intention is to

Thanks again for participating! Looking forward to more activities with you awesome guys!
Hello fellow deviants! So me and DILAGO have this cool idea of a collaboration and we want you guys, the community, to be involved! It'll be fun! We got the idea from ItsJustin, where he and many artists collabed to draw all Generation 1 Pokémon. They will be doing it again this time for Generation 2, starting this month. So we thought it would be fun to do Generation 3, as a way to revive Hoenn because I know we all miss Hoenn and the Pokémon, and it deserves a remake.

Well anthro or anthropomorphic isn't strictly correct when considering the origins of the words. Anthropomorphism means that a non-human entity has human-like qualities. When dealing with photomorphs, usually the base is a human and you give them animal qualities, hence the difference between anthropomorphic and zoomorphic! I suppose furry could apply to either as it has no implication that start point was either animal or human. To the layman, everything just falls under the anthro umbrella anyway!
1) Must depict a zoomorphic/anthro/furry character that contains a hybridized mix of human and animal features
2) Medium must be photomanipulation, using at least 2 stock p

As we all know, what is art is different for everyone and as human beings, we're bound to disagree constantly about what we consider art. And that's ok. The same art is not for everyone. Some might appreciate certain pieces while others will hate them and others simply won't understand them. And that's ok. I see them as a reminder that we are different and we all see things differently.
I also believe art should cause a reaction on the viewer, be positive or negative, otherwise is something boring that is just there. So if a piece of art

Stacks are folders in Sta.sh that can be created by dragging one file onto another. When in a stack in your Sta.sh, you can now merge several files to create a sub-stack inside of that stack! You can group subtasks of larger art projects together, arrange your files by type, or organize your files in whatever way that makes sense to you.
You can also put files of a larger project in a sub-stack, so that you can share certain files from the project with other deviants without having to share the whole project. This makes sharing works-in-progress a smooth and simple process that won't compromise your work flow.

The various journals and other tributes to Robin Williams over the past few days have sparked discussion about mental illness throughout the deviantART community, and this is wonderful because talking to one another is how we begin to strategize how we can address these problems together. Moreover, talking keeps us connected and grounded. No one has to be an island here.
Let's keep talking. Here is some more information about mental illness.
Mental illness is pervasive.
Did you know that, according to the US National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), approximately 1 in 4 people will experience some sort of mental health concern at some point during their lifetimes? Moreover, did you know that 8-10% of Americans are suffering from diagnosable depression right now?? That means everyone-- you, your parents, your children, your friends, your teachers and colleagues-- is at risk for these incapacitating diseases.
New Contest: 'A Candle in the Darkness'image from depositphotos.comMore Like This
Introducing a new written and visual art competition . . .
The members and administrators of mental-health are pleased to announce our first contest:
A Candle in the Darkness
This contest is open to everyone on DeviantArt. The focus of the contest is on things that help us overcome difficulties or dark times, and anyone can participate. What is your candle in the darkness? What helps you pull through?
Our group is about promoting wellness at the mental, physical, and spiritual level for all people. While we do have articles and features about mental health specifically, other articles focus on coping with stress, being true to yourself, overcoming obstacles, dealing with others' negativity, and other empowering topics. Our tagline is, "Awareness and Empowerment," and we aim to help diffuse stigma through education. You do not have to have a mental illness to p
Robin Williams - Light out of DarkI originally wrote and posted this elsewhere, but I just need to post it here too and expand on it a bit. This is the only place where I'd publicly go this deep.More Like This
Robin Williams made light for the whole world out of his own personal darkness. He is irreplaceable. People like him are a true gift to life and often paying dearly for it, sometimes the ultimate price. That fact about him was not a secret.
It's deeply profound and sad when someone who caused so much joy for so many people for so long is suddenly just gone, let alone the ultimate circumstances thereof.
It is often wondered 'How can someone this funny be so sad?', or the other way around. You know how people like to refer to sad clowns without thinking any further than just this attempt at making an ironic statement.
Often enough the sad truth is that someone is as great at making people laugh as he or she is because he or she are deeply sad or depressed or otherwise very troubled on the inside. Maybe bringing joy to others is

Check out this brilliant tribute to Robin Williams, painted by Yuuza!!
On the lethality of mental illness
We were saddened deeply today to hear that Robin Williams appears to have taken his own life. He was a brilliant, creative mind and a voice for humanity.
I've seen a lot of tributes to him over the past hour or so. Many people have posted clips of his work, quotes, and favorite memories. That's great; it's how we honor someone. But, somehow I feel like we're missing the point.
The point is . . . it's not fucking funny.
EDIT: I am not saying that people are making fun of Robin Williams' death. I am saying that some (not all) people are ignoring the cause of it.
Reports have it that Mr. Williams suffered from depression and possible drug/alcohol abuse. I've also read that he had bipolar disorder. Regardless, what plagued him was lethal, and it plagues so many other human beings acro
My deviantART StoryIn lieu of the usual weekly feature thing, I figured I'd do one of these journals, especially since DA has had such a profound effect on my life in general. This is going to be pretty wordy, a bit dark in places and get pretty personal, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't somewhat hesitant to be this open about myself and some of the issues I've faced/am facing. I've been considering posting a journal talking about it for a while anyway for reasons I'll delve into later, and this seems like the perfect opportunity. If you're not interested in the story, then by all means just check out the thumbs or skip this one altogether, i promise i won't be offended.More Like This
Before we get to DA, a little bit of background. I'm from a small city in upstate New York called Binghamton. Once a manufacturing hub with almost 100,000 people, after WWII factories started to shut down as manufacturing relocated overseas, jobs dried up, and the city began to shrink. Currently th
Happy Birthday DeviantART! Welcome to WonderlandMore Like This
I find myself delighted to lay my rather large eyes on you. A purrfectly delicious mystery awaits you. Won't you come this way?
I've been a bad kitty-- a very naughty, naughty feline, indeed. You see, today is Alice's Unbirthday, and all the inhabitants of Wonderland had planned to join her and the Mad Hatter for tea and cake. But, the Mad Hatter, being quite a bit off his rocker, is requiring that everyone wear a hat to the party. Anyone without a hat cannot attend.
Whoops! Mysteriously, *smile* all the hats in Wonderland have gone missing. What a shame, what a shame. Whatever shall we do?
I know what we shall do. You and I, stranger, we shall go to the party together. I hear the cake is delicious this year, and there will be plenty for us.
Except, wait! HA! You cannot!!! You have no hat, either! I suppose you'll have to stay here, too, then. Very well. Goodbye.

Judging will not be an instant thing, just to warn everyone, as I have a busy few weeks coming up. Time and consideration will be taken for each entry and I will leave plenty of time for deliberation, as I have done in the past, so that in case I have wavering decisions, I will have the time to make certain that I have confidence in the winners I choose. Though, you've not made it easy for me with so many wonderful entries!

During my time as an artist, I get comments from people telling me that I have Inspired them to draw. I love that, I really love it when someone tells me that they started drawing because of my own work. It feels good knowing my work has that ability to provoke action in others. However, lately I had some close friends and associates get discouraged...to the point where they stop their strive altogether, because of my work. This isn't speculation, it's direct information from the source. It's disheartening to see that happen, so if you are feeling the same way, please take note of the rest of this journal.
Don't strive for popularity.
This seems to be the root for the majority of problems I've seen. I've seen many beginners start drawing expecting a large amount of watchers and comments to happ

But even though temporary, it did changed my perspective on some matters.
It's weird how much the internet can become an influence, and how this process goes so unnoticed. At a certain point the countless voices of people around you blend into a continuous buzz. A buzz that you soon get so familiar with that you forget there was a life before it. I guess that's what social media does in general; creating a buzz. An artificial need for you to continuously be online and check your messages, because you might just miss something otherwise. Life, in general, has become so infused with the internet that it sometimes scares me. I'm part of the internet industry. Hell, I even made it my job! But even I sometimes find myself wondering where the time has gone that I could work on an artwork for hours straight, without feeling that creeping itch to check my messages.
The last few weeks before the break, I've repeatedly felt bad about

Since the new year is approaching rapidly, and my mind was on new years resolutions, i thought up a challenge for myself to improve my anatomy. And it would be boring to do it alone so i invite you all to join me.
Here's how the challenge goes:
1. The goal is to reach 1000 anatomy related drawings as fast as possible. There is no deadline.
2. You don't have to start in 2015, you can start now.
3. Comment on this journal with a link to the drawings you made for this challenge. I will keep an eye on this journal and if you comment anywhere else i might not find your comment. Don't link me in a reply though, my reply stack is chaos, you wouldn't want your comment to get mixed up there. I will check new comments every now and then and award points but i won't look through conversations. So if you finished a sketch or a bunch of sketches then come to this journal and write a new comment every time

The deviantART #HolidayCardProject is back for its 8th year! With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In 2013 alone, the Project received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for deviantART volunteers and 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 sends in a card will

10. Sticker Gum
I've seen a lot of artists make stickers, but sticker paper can be very expensive and sometimes it doesn't last too long. Use these instructions to create your own, depending on how much you'd like them to stick!
My version: I learnt this one during KG summer camp.
First, you draw your design on either a piece of paper

PE: Creating your own MangaIntroductionMore Like This
You have a great story, a bunch of characters and you want to create a manga. However, where do you start? Do you have it Left->Right or Right->Left? How should you publish it (*note: some publishers may have additional requirements/restrictions)?
The process is pretty much the same for any graphic progression such as comics.
Luckily, there are a great number of tutorials to help you on your way.
A storyboard is a panel or series of panels which detail the sequence of significant events in a planned scene, i.e. a rough sketch coupled with some words to describe the actions in the scene.
At this point you'd need to have an idea of whether you are making a left->right or right->left manga and your story has been separated into scenes and plot points you wish to use to drive your story.

10 ways to become more productiveDear, deviantart fellow artistsMore Like This
It's difficult to feel motivated and stay focused on our goals all the time. But how to achieve what we want, how to not let procrastination stand in our way?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Set goals
Think about your ultimate goal - what is that matters to you the most, what would make you incredibly happy and excited. Write that down and work your way through to it. It will be the reason, the reminder for you to look forward in those times, when you'll feel less motivated.
Try to write also weekly, monthly and yearly goals - be reasonable and realistic regarding that, but don't be afraid of challenges. They have to be S.M.A.R.T. - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.
2. Plan tasks in previous day

Blending modes and photomanipulations
Few words about most used blending modes (bm), how they affect the image (positive and negative moments).
First of all I want to remind about the option of creating layer filled with neutral colour for chosen blending mode. Holding Alt press icon "create a new layer", Photoshop will show you window like this:
Just select desired bm and check "fill with ... neutral color". Sometimes it's very helpful.
Second, when you use blending modes for toning for example, use option "new adjustment layer - solid colour" instead of filling new layer with bucket. Solid color doesn't increase size of your psd file as much as pixel layer does.
And third - brush, clone stamp, history brush, bucket/gradient, all these tools have option to select bm i

This Needs to StopAlright, so months ago, I've had the displeasure of meeting the most childish, selfish, and greedy person on this site and that person is :iconMatthewJabezPNazario: He constantly asks people for Paw Patrol(some kid show) requests and when doing so, he likes to add in unnecessary details as shown in these comments:More Like This
And when someone finishes one of his requests, instead of being grateful, he says "is it fixable?" and nitpicks every missing detail:

He even asks for requests with other people's OCs and doesn't even ask for their permission:
