Thank you for the Birthday Wishes!!Back from a family holiday to the south of Sicily (only 9 months in the planning!! D; ) and I log in to a whole host of wonderful birthday wishes and dedications - thank you so so much!
Hopefully in the next few weeks, now my exams are over I will be able to start going through the photos we took whilst we were away to get some new stock posted Ancient architecture, nature, volcano's..(ok just Mt. Etna) variety is the spice of life!!
I know I've not posted any model stock for ages (sorry!!) but I do have a couple of costumes recently created which I will do stock with soon(tm)
Love to you all, thank you again for the amazing support and use of my stock! (Sometimes wonder if you aren't bored of me yet... 14 years sharing stock on DA!! o.0 )

Slots Upkeep / Breeding TermsOH LOOK ITS A LIST OF THINGS THAT MIGHT INTEREST HORSE LOVING PEOPLES :3
.... for everyone else... nothing to see here, move right along ^^
All Tincture Abbey Stables Horses belonging to Elandria Tincture Abbey Stables
Dam/Sire slot on foal - dependant on which horse is being bred, sometimes I won't need this and will let you know in advance
Buyback option / first refusal - if you decide to part ways with your foal for whatever reason I'd like the first refusal as I like to keep track of where my horse's babies are
Basic art payment starts at 3 full-body with background images - this does NOT have to be a breeding image - a lot of people prefer not to have their horses shown non-canon. Art can be of ANY of my horses - not just the horse you are requesting the slot on.
2017 Creative TalesSo as we head dauntlessly into 2017 I'd love to know how you are all doing!
Any creative goals for this year?
Bucket list items to tick off?
New skills to learn?
Personally I'm trying to rewire my brain for using my beautiful new 27inch Cintiq pen and touch (Thank you ReapingFields - best pressie ever other than my cameras!!)
I'm aiming to do more equine art this year - sorry if thats not what you initially watched me for but a gal has to have some hobbies that are not stock you know
New stock. Yer. Its coming I have have several things to put in place first. I have no ETA on this I'm going with the flow.
I'm also doing a heath and safety course next week for work which is different and not at all what I am used to doing so we'll see how that goes
I'm hoping to get fit again and maybe partake in a wolf run in memory of my dad but right now thats pie in the sky since I doubt I could stagger more than a few meters without feeling like I'm having a heart attack. (Lofty
It's MY Art!---Art Theives and How To Fight ThemArt Theives.
Yes, you know what they are. Ignorant people who steal another person's art and re-post it, sometimes posting "Copyright ME DO NOT STEAL", or "This is my character, ____. Hope you like them!", when they themselves actually saved the picture, colored over it ( or just left it as it originally was ), and gave the animal/person/character a new name.
I myself have seen tons or stolen art, some with the original artist's signature still on the stolen art.
But now, it's just getting worse. Now they are doing it for attention, and people are giving it to them, because of the stolen art.
It's hard to stop an art theif, and I admit it. But you have to let the admins do their thing.
What to do if:
You discover your art has been stolen:
Report the stolen picture! If you don't report it, they may get away with stealing your prized art.
When you report the picture, be sure to put the URL to the original deviation ( AKA Your picture ). That way the people who see that you reporte
Epic Logo, Epic ChallengeAllow me to introduce myself. My name is Ryan Ford, and I am the Creative Director here at deviantART. In my position, I manage a global team of extremely talented designers, and collectively we are responsible for designing most everything that represents deviantART in any way, shape, or form. This includes the site layout, deviantWEAR, and of course our brand.
Over the past few months, we've been working on a rebranding of deviantART, and you may have seen the fruits of our labor slowly taking shape throughout the site in a variety of forms. I'd like to take this opportunity to get you, the community, involved in the understanding of what

A guide to DeviantArt popularityAlright. I've actually planned on this article for weeks now. A little too long maybe. But now I feel I can't let it sit in a folder on my computer unfinished and take up space. It has to come out, especially after having read an article about something similar, but written in such an arrogant manner.
So many people come to this community. Some just to browse, and most come here to have a place to display their artwork and get feedback. Many want to be "popular". But honestly, what does that mean? Lots of attention, favorites, watchers, and what everyone seems to want and think their art deserves, a Daily Deviation feature? Some go as far as to attack and belittle other artists for having more pageviews than them, or getting more comments. Is that what the word "popularity" means? I think that word is misunderstood and misused.
Here are a few simple suggestions/steps that will help you become a better fellow deviant, get more attention and increase your popularity:
Writing a Short Film scriptThe first thing you need to do is to catch the audience's imagination early. Write a script that will play around with the audience's imagination. Once you have their attention, it will be much easier to continue with the script. Always make your audience wonder what's going to happen next.
A good short film needs a story in which something happens that has a discernible effect on the main character. All successful short films focus on one moment/event. That moment is likely to be:
one of universal significance
a moment that is of significance to the protagonist
one that produces a situation in which the stakes are high for the protagonist
Finding the Story
Any kind of dramatic story requires 3 basic elements:
Because of the need to establish an instantly recognizable world in order to get on with exploring a characters problem, it can be useful to set your film ar
deviantWORLD ContestFor the longest time I have dreamed on and on of what it would be like if deviantART.com were "real". What if deviantART was more than coding, images, and text. It would be a place that I could physically go to and perhaps live in and become a citizen of this place.
The images of what could be continually stir in my mind at all times. Then I saw a piece by MacDoninri that showed me a wonderful version of what I had been dreaming and I was in bliss. Then my mind recalled another piece by Chromattix which was of the same concept.
by MacDoninri by Chromattix
Then I realized how odd and sad it was that I had never seen any other piece like these and knew what I had to do...
You must create an image depicting what you think deviantART would look like "in real life". It could be a hidden location in your neighborhood, an undiscovered island, or it could be a world unto its o
Recent Dangerous Virus/Worms on DeviantartRecently, over the past couple of weeks or so a number of people have been getting attacked by a virus while on Deviantart. This has resulted in said people having to do 'system restores' and even having to go as far as reformatting.
Some have been known to pop up as a deceiving "windows update" popup of some sort while browsing DA or upon full viewing deviations.
I have received numerous pop-up warnings while on the Deviant art website regarding these.
I created this news article in hopes that the community would become more aware of it and take precautions in making sure you have virus protection. Malawarebytes has been a known solution, but people have had trouble installing after being attacked by the virus.
I hope people will spread this information if they find they have had attacks as well, not to spread fear but to inform others of what is going on and could happen.
Those who have been attacked are now too afraid to go on Deviantart after being attacked once, and I would hate t
