Origins of Eddsworld [WORDSWORDSWORDS]
You asked for it, you got it. No, it's not f**king waffles.
Even before i animated, i always had a habit of drawing friends into comics. In secondary school i would draw them all the time, if just to get a quick laugh or to insult another. Originally my group of friends in school were he cast of what i called 'Edd's World', most likely inspired by Wayne's World. Eventually i started using the internet more often and started using Neopets with Matt and others, which lead to me making a Guild and then a Guild website.. and that Guild was called 'Edd's Kill-a-thon'... yeah. A few weeks later after some angry threats, the admins removed my guild for having too violent of a title. So i made a new one and called it 'Edd's World' with a lame little Geocities webpage linking to cool stuff and funny pictures. Soon i started using an animated gif maker to make very bad anmated gif stories, mainly about stickmen dying and farts and what not. When i finally found a place to submit them (www.sfdt.c

A Guide to Undertale AUs (old)
Management has changed!
Comycatdarkangel will be taking over maintaining this list. Find their post here: A guide to Undertale AU's 2
Go give them support! c:
Every single character in Undertale is changed. AUs that only affect some of the characters are not found here, nor are AUs that change only during the time Frisk is within the underground.
Basic Change (<-THIS IS A LINK)
The basic theme of Undertale is changed, flipped, or modified while still remaining in the same basic story in some which way or form. Most of these AUs have their own versions of the characters. It usually follows a specific theme,

How do you start drawing comics?
After this question was recently posed to me, I thought I’d type up a more in-depth answer.
Ultimately, it really is just a case of: start. There’s nothing stopping you. You don’t need anyone’s permission. Just put pen to paper and let fly.
I think the major stumbling block for people at that early stage of things is the concern that what they put on the page does not do justice to what is in their head. You, of course, want it to look as good as the comics that inspired you to take up the pen. You’ll draw a few pages and decide it’s not worth continuing because your work isn’t on par with the big name artists and zillions of people aren’t showering you with positive comments.
1 - Don’t draw for anyone but yourself. Feedback is awesome, but the only prize you should be chasing is the giddy delight of finishing a project. That’s how you get things done.
2 - Practice is what improves your work and practice is easiest done when D

Boldly Facing The Future

DeviantArt Timeline

Artist Credit DanielaUhlig
Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.
Change is not something that we take lightly, because it affects our collective identity. It was important for us to define who we are and what we’re made of at our core before we changed anything. We all have our own understanding of what that means, but the process of getting that core story down on paper took almost a year.
The result is “Bleed and Breed Art.” This is our center of gravity and our reason for getting out of be

Robert Rodriguez Presents Project Green Screen
Robert Rodriguez

Robert shot an action-packed short film called Two Scoops, starring twins Lola and Lucia who operate an ice cream truck by day and happen to also be monster-slayers. Fans contributed to the project by submitting films, Tweeting their ideas for super-weapons, creating the fiercest monsters, and sending in their photos to appear on Missing Person posters.
We're excited to announce that the collaboration is now complete! You can see the finished film right here, along with the best contributions from fans, and documentary footage to tell the story of the project.

2017 improvement challenge [closed]
Update 28-02-18
Small update on the judging, since so many people ask.
Unfortunately real life and health issues have been getting a bit in the way of my online activity lately. That combined with the sheer number of entries and all of the stories that come with them (many people wrote large texts in the descriptions) make judging both hard and time consuming. There will be judging, but I really want to do watch and read every entry properly, as that would be fair to all of the contestants. Long story short; it's gonna take another while.
Update 02-02-18

The contest now is officially closed.
To those that submitted, please make sure your work is in the contest folder. If not (and you submitted your entry according to the rules) please send me a message.
There's a lot of entries, and I want to actually read all of descriptions people wrote underneath the

Please read this if you are interested to learn more about the dolls I photograph. I dont have time to keep answering the same questions over and over again >_< I will be updating this journal entry as time goes on. Feel free to add a question in the comments section and I will try to answer it.
What are these dolls?
They are BJD - ball jointed dolls. If you search Google with those keywords you will get plenty of results with companies and other info about them. This is the Wikipedia article Also this LJ answers some questions too . If you want to learn more, I would suggest Den of Angels forum (
Do you make them?
No I don't make the actual doll, I don't sculpt it. I am a customizer, I paint their faceups. I am basically a makeup artist for resin dolls. You can find the link to my commission shop

Artist's Killers: Fears and phobias - Part 1 [EN]
Artist's Killers - Part 1 [EN]

Fears and phobias
What stops you from being a successful artist? It seems easy to sit down, draw, improve your skills, and then everything will come with experience. But, according to my personal observations, not all people are able to pass this way, even if they are enrolled in courses or special institutions. The high cost of the tools and teachers also don't guarantee that you will become the new Hollywood illustrator.
And you know what? Nobody and nothing will ever guarantee your own success. It is trite, insulting, but all depends on us: our way of thinking, inner peace, upbringing, temperament, and a bunch of other factors. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, EVERYTHING affects how successful we can become. It is enough for some people to get into the popular studio, while others become gurus spending their lives under lock and key.
Fears of beginners

Using HTML on deviantART


Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking. :)
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place? :dummy:
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

Gracias a Dios dA ha venido con varias actualizaciones que facilitan el uso de los códigos por medio de opciones como el Sta.shWriter para los journals, sin embargo si lo que quieren es perzonalizar el texto de sus comentarios, deviations, cajas de ID, etc. espero les sea de ayuda.

How to Commission an Artist
I've been commissioning artists for a little over two years now, starting with site money on GaiaOnline and moving to dA from there.  One thing that's hard for me to ignore is the number of artists who are concerned about being scammed, either because they've gone through that experience before or because the stories and warnings of it happening all the time proliferate.  Commissioners have their own concerns about being scammed by artists.  The simple fact of the matter is that it happens.
However, I think a good portion of the problem is that many people who want to commission an artist have no experience doing so, and it's not as easy to find instructions on it as, say, how to draw anime eyes.  That's why I'm making this guide.
It should be noted that while I mention commissioning through other websites now and then, this is meant as to general guide, and all of the examples are from  Also, this does not
