Character Design: An introduction
Arvalis-2012 by arvalis ( What does 'Character Design' mean? The character design is the process  which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character  through his/her physical appearance. We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well. While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be

The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei ( and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART.

This is why you (and your art) get ignored.
People often get the sense of being ignored in the art-scene, especially here online. We all try so hard to get our foot in the door, it's like trying to stuff yourself in an overfull bus like a sardine in a can. Sometimes you just want to socialize with other artists you admire and you seem to be talking into a brick wall or perhaps you've send your portfolio to a company over a dozen times and still don't even seem to get the smallest response or feedback. I will try and tell you WHY you get ignored and HOW you can get noticed instead. I will go through the following cases of being ignored: :bulletgreen: Your comment. :bulletgreen: Your

Skribble Contest: Let's Get Creative!

Dear deviantART...
I am refusing to use the rebranded name because, I'm annoyed about the rebrand. I'm annoyed about your direction, your lack of focus in key areas and your lack of communication. I said I'd never be a bitter former staff member, but it seems that I am. Last year you spent a lot of money on a rebrand, this year you've cut 50% of your work force, entire departments have been decimated and peoples lives have been thrown upside down without notice. But you never really communicated to anyone why. You still don't, you're not telling the community what's happening and that's only going to hurt you. People will see that helpdesk tickets take longer
