Get creative with Inktober!
October is a month of adventure and the unknown lurking around every corner, but one adventure in particular has drawn in thousands of artists from around the world to open up a sketchbook and start creating: Inktober. Originally a challenge made by artist Jake Parker to create one ink drawing a day during the month of October, Inktober has developed into a large global project where artists strive to create! Though the task can seem daunting, the goal of Inktober is to inspire and fuel creativity, as well as foster positive drawing habits. It might be midway through the month, but it’s never too late to get inspired to create something new! Even if you only do a single drawing for Inktober, you’ll have delighted and inspired all who watch you, and who knows what they might go on to create? So get those ideas flowing and get to creating! If you post your Inktober art to DeviantArt, be sure to add the tag #inktober2019 to your deviation, so others can discover your work!

A Guide to Colored Pencils
Trad Art Week: Tools of Your Trade I love colored pencils! I love the smell, the texture, the wonderful colors that no sCaNnER cAn eVER GET RIGHT--- Hello everyone! I'm Kiki-Tayler,  a collector of colored pencils. In this article I'll be talking about the technique I use when working with colored pencils. I'll cover the topics of colored pencil brands/types, paper quality, auxiliary tools, and the super secret technique. (It's not all that secret, tbh) Let's dive in and talk about the pencils themselves. I use a mixture of Prismacolor pencils and Faber Castell pencils.

October Howl 2019
Happy Halloween month! It's time to get spooky and/or festive. I've been getting spooky and/or festive by working on my entry for Memnalar (https://www.deviantart.com/memnalar)'s All Hallow's Tales contest (which you should definitely also do), but as you'll see in the conveniently labelled contest section farther down, there's no shortage of Halloween contests to choose from. :pumpkin: In less festive news, I'm, uh, working on getting this year's FFM collection done (promise). A lot of things have been getting in the way - and still are - but I'm hoping to have it done before November. Partly just to have it done with, partly to be finished with it before all the year-end

saturday morning coffee.
Seattle held many secrets in its dreary rainfall: college kids having sex in the 7-11 bathroom, a drug dealer staking out Rainier Valley for new clientele, and, worst of all, a secret agent working at the Starbucks on 5th Avenue.  I had watched him for months now and every day something suspicious seemed to happen. Today, the strange behavior revolved around the chocolate syrup pump sitting surreptitiously behind neatly placed metallic coffee mugs for sale.  The perfect hiding spot for seedy behavior!  A woman I earmarked as pleasant-enough looking leaned over the counter cautiously, eye over her shoulder to detect any prying eyes.

Deviousness Award

When asked, what is the most ironic user name you have seen on this site, one name jumps to mind for a lot of people. And that would be `lazybutt Seemingly everywhere and anywhere all at once giving critiques, offering advice and helping newcomers is all in a days work for him.
And then besides that he is always full of great suggestions for the site itself, approaching the admins here with well thought out ideas, and many a recommendation for Daily Deviations or just great artists for us to shine some light on.
And if allllllll of that were not enough then there is the =DailyDeviants project that he has been behind since 2005 as well. So yes, `lazybutt is quite the opposite of his namesake and we couldn't be happier about that.
