August: Fan Artist of the Month
YukiMizuno
August's Fan Artist of the Month

Fan Artist of the Month for August is someone incredibly important to the Fan Art Community. Jennifer Gay, YukiMizuno, has been a cheerleader for not only the fan art community, but for the deviant community at large.
From the first time I met her, her enthusiasm and excitement for everything to do with community was surprising and welcome, and I realized how lucky I was to have someone entirely dedicated to the promotion of community spirit.
Yes, she does things like features for artists, encourages other people, but there are a lot of things she does behind the scenes that makes her such an asset to the community. She always sends in Daily Deviation suggestions (very persistently), tries to participate in all events in anyway she can, and is singularly the person who pushes nonstop to support the Fan Fiction community--especially when it comes to nu

C and C Almost DDs - Vol IV
As gallery moderator, I have the priviledge to select Daily Deviations (:faq61:, :faq18:), however its impossible for me  to feature every single suggestion I receive, but that doesn't mean all these pieces don't deserve to be seen!
Why then, aren't they selected? There can be many reasons, NOT being one of them, "because they're not good enough".
Because of this dilemma  I now present you this series of articles, featuring some of the sugggestion that almost made it to Daily Deviations, pieces that deserve to be seen nonetheless
Special thanks to pietzsche and Leorica for their help in this edition!

Archangel Michael by CarlosGomezArtist
Always nice to see someone's process, especially with such a good end result, instantly readable with a minimum of tone, quality pencilling.

Fan Art Gallery Additions: 3-D and Vexel
For those who have long coveted...
The Fan Art Gallery added two new categories to its submission section!
3-Dimensional Artwork
&
Vexel
Both categories are listed under the Fan Art > Digital Art categories and are now available for use!
:heart: The 3D Fan Art category supports fan art deviations created with 3D software such as Maya and Poser (only to name a very few!)
:heart: The Vexel Fan Art category supports fan art deviations based on the following definition: What a Vexel is: The Official dA definition!
Please remember that Fan Art is a place to put your art based on copyrighted work such as Books, TV shows, Movies, Anime, Manga, Comics, Cartoons, etc. Work that isn't considered Fan Art: Portraits of actors/actresses, musicians, politicians--any portrait where the person is depicted as themselves and not a character.
If you have any questions about the media in general, feel free to shoot

My name is Elisa Féliz. I'm 21 years old.  I was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, but i currently live in New Jersey, where i attend the Joe Kubert School of cartoon and graphic art.

I Am Anthro: Content Contest 1: Writing
:iconffredxiii: FFRedXIII here with an update about the content contests for the I Am Anthro Magazine!
The first contest to be launched will be one for submissions of short stories, poems, etc.
Details:
Short Story:
Entries may be no longer then five pages (preferably less), Times New Roman or Arial font, size 12. Entries should be properly checked for spelling, grammar and punctuation to save us trouble on our end, and should be submitted on Deviantart as well as emailed to iaa-m@hotmail.com.
All entries should deal with some aspect of the anthropomorphic universe, have a simple and followable plot with a beginning middle and end. I understand how hard that can be with only five pages, but please do your best.
How many short stories will be accepted into the first issue of I Am Anthro will depend on available space and story length.
Although only some entries will make it into the magazine, if you wish to keep your entry on file for a future issue, should it be of good quality, p

Ultimate Fandom Contest 4: Inspiration
:dance: Ultimate Fandom Contest 4: Inspiration :dance:
After a successful last run with Ultimate Fandom Contest 2: Book Characters, Ultimate Fandom Contest: Avatar: TLA, and Ultimate Fandom Contest 3: Video Games, I'm pleased to present Ultimate Fandom Contest 4: Inspiration! Read on for the details:
The Breakdown
All of the previous UFC contests have been sculpted to fit a certain theme, and I think it's time to let the freedom of choice reign over Ultimate Fandom Contest! You can pick any book, tv, movie, anime, manga, cartoon, comic, tv show--anything you want--to use as the topic for your contest entry.
The Purpose
Inspiration is all around us, and many of us draw it from such things as favorite books, whimsical video games or thrilling movies. Whether we use fan art to help us learn further, pay homage to that which we love, or as a stress reliever when we can't quite think of something original, it is always there for whatever purpose

7 Reasons Why You Should Go to Art School
One of the most frequently asked questions on this site is the infamous: "Is there a point in going to Art School?" It makes my blood pressure rise every time, not so much the question itself as the fact it is asked to, and answered by, people who have no business giving advice on the matter. This article seeks to answer it once and for all, and be warned that it may come across as cutting in certain places. There's a link to my CV in my journal for those who might wonder about my own qualifications.
The short answer is: Yes, there is a point. In fact, if you want to make a carreer out of art, or design, you must go to art school. You can dispense from it if one of the following applies to you:
:pointr: You're a genius in your chosen field. You have an innate grasp of art/design principles and the ability to impose your ideas in the field so that you don't even need to learn the nitty-gritty. Unlikely, or you'd be famous by now.

I spend about 80% of my time making comics.
Interests
  • Listening to: Somersault by Zero 7 on When it Falls
  • Drinking: Very potent Earl Grey Tea
Has it really been four years since I joined dA? Yes, yes it has. Goodness time flies doesn't it?
Yeah.

For me, I'm spending summer between a couple of relatives' places. Trying to get as much work on Stymie done as possible. I intended to write a journal recapping and reviewing everything I learned from last semester at school, but it's been awhile since that happened. Can't recall enough of it that I could write anything intelligent about it. So perhaps I'll just say a few things here anyways.

I still intend on doing Dingo at some point. I'm hoping to get my hands on a book the talks about MI6 and read that so I can have a better grasp at historical context. I'm also changing a lot of things, hopefully to make it more concrete. Still have to figure out how to style it, and I might do it with line-work or line-less. I think they somehow take almost the same amount of time. Ink stage versus flatting stage or something like that.

I think what Stymie might have over what Dingo had is it's more inspired. Admittedly, when I first did Dingo, not only did it only lack direction ALOT, but the characters were heavily referential. Not necessarily I bad thing, but the characters in Stymie are more of their own nature. I have a little bit of reference for Wes' character, but the rest just are. It makes them seem a little more authentic to me.

Remind me to make a review of the things I learn from Stymie. Admittedly, its been quite alot.

Cheerio dA folks.
