Fan Fiction On deviantARTGalleries MonthMore Like This
What Is Fan Fiction?
Everyday, we are inspired by movies, television, novels, and other forms of media. They engage our minds with a variety of stories and characters, their plights and triumphs, their everyday minutiae. Fan fiction authors are so enamored with these other worlds and their inhabitants that they must partake in the stories which have brought them so much enjoyment. They expand on the current universe, explain gaps in the narrative and delve into characters' motivations.
A good fan fiction (or fanfic) is more than simple borrowing another writer's characters and universe. The fan fiction author must immerse his or her readers in the story, make them believe it is a natural extension of the source material. Characters have their own mannerisms and quirks; each universe has its own history and rules that need to be followed. The fan fiction author must master the nuances of those characters and the world they inhabit (unless purposely writi

When I first came to DA, I was afraid that my art skill is so low. I have know about DA for a long time before actually creating an account, when I thought my art skill is at least above medium.
I first started with cheap stuffs and water color.
I also colored with my sole mouse. It was hard. Now I couldn't even remember how I went over such struggles xD
Then I got a tablet xD. After saving money, finally I bought a small Wacom tablet pen. This is my third pic with tablet (deleted the first and the second one, looks horribl
My deviantArt StoryI originally discovered dA by accident and in the early days I was just a lurker here! Then I noticed the wide range of art that was on offer here and I thought about joining and contributing pics of my beautiful country and the nature within. I wasn't into photography in a big way but I got a snapshot camera for Christmas one year and decided to have a bit of fun. I started taking and posting shots and was amazed that other deviants here actually liked them. This grew into a full blown passion and the rest is history so to speak! I've met some incredible artists here - not only amazing with their works but amazing people as well! They influence me and encourage me to be a better photographer and person and I thank you all for being such an important part of my life!More Like This

A Special Christmas Present CONTEST!
I have a son who is now 28. He lives alone and has both Autism and Schizophrenia. He is both sad, lonely, and is forced to live a very isolated life. No one really understands the pain of being mentally ill and not able to fit in with society and even other people in general, unless you, yourself are, have a direct connection or relationship with someone that carries this themselves.

I Spy 5: Community Feature ProjectThe RulesMore Like This
You must feature 5 deviations by 5 different Deviants that you do not know very well or do not have a ton of exposure in a journal. Link your feature journal back to this journal for a collective feature later on. You may choose a theme if you wish as a way to find your 5. Once you have been featured in a journal, you are tagged, and must continue by featuring your own journal of 5. If you have not yet been tagged and want to participate, please do! By viewing this journal, consider yourself tagged. Copy these rules in your own journal feature.
It begins when you see this. All journals must be linked to this journal no later than 11:59pm CST Nov. 6, 2015.
The purpose of choosing 5 deviants that you are not familiar, speak to as often, or are friends with is because this is an exercise to expand our community horizons. We all settle in to our comfort zones and hang out with our little cliques of friends. This is so that

"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

I know that I still need to complete a few comitments I owe a bunch of people from the last batch, but this can't wait anymore. We need to keep this going if we want to reach the goal by the end of the month. Eclipse and her friends are doing everything they can, and it's about time I show all my cards. BUT, I'll keep working on pending work, just that I'll try to complete as many things as I can until the end of the month, so we can gather enough money.

Let me first explain the refund policy.
IF I FAIL TO COMPLETE YOUR COMMISSION IN THE GIVEN TIME OF 30 DAYS, YOU WILL RECEIVE A FULL REFUND, AND YOUR PIC WILL STILL BE COMPLETED; BUT WHEN I DECIDE TO DO SO.
