Watch Convention Panels at Home!

Watch Convention Panels at Home!

Even though the pandemic means we can’t be together at comic and art conventions, like San Diego Comic-Con and LightBox, we didn’t want to miss an opportunity to help artists grow and connect with one another! We jumped at the chance to participate in the “at home” versions of those conventions to showcase insight and expertise from some excellent artists. With the below panels, you can take part in a warmup for artists, learn the history of DeviantArt, discover how personal projects can lead to paid gigs, and find out tricks to using social media as an artist. Social Media for Artists @loish, @Picolo-kun, and @kianamai connect for a panel navigating the challenges of social media for contemporary artists. From asserting your artistic voice, how to gain followers and engagement, and balancing your life with responsibilities to the art community, they cover it all. Hosted by DeviantArt’s Head of Social Media, @ggMattB. Personal Work to Paid Work You never know when the fun project you

Weekly Artist Feature: Ladowska

Weekly Artist Feature: Ladowska

Each week, we interview a different artist and share their art and featured answers on our official Facebook page. This week's featured artist is @Ladowska! If you had to describe your style to someone who had never seen your art, how would you describe it? If I was describing my style to someone who has never seen it, I would describe it as strongly inspired by manga with a hint of realism. When did you realize art might be a career for you? The fact that art may be a career for me did not come as a realization but it was hard work. I was working a full time job and also drawing full time too. I wasn't getting any sleep so at some point I had to make a decision to do one or the other. Your grasp of colors is absolutely beautiful. What do you keep in mind when choosing colors for a piece/how do you approach colors when creating art? Aww thank you. Actually I struggle a lot choosing colors and keep all layers editable. At the end of an illustration I endlessly play with hue

Weekly Artist Feature: APetruk

Each week, we interview a different artist and share their art and featured answers on our official Facebook page. This week's featured artist is @APetruk! If you had to describe your style to someone who had never seen your art, how would you describe it? I would describe my art style as an adaptive drawing because I always follow other artists’ creative ideas and learn from them trying to apply some tricks to my own creative process. I always change and try new art styles. What are your art goals? What do you hope to accomplish with your art? My art goals are not very ambitious. I draw, sculpt, craft some simple wooden furniture, cook with the same therapeutic creative purpose - to relax and find some meaning in what I do, or rather create some meaning with my actions, and if other people find meaning in what I do - then it's a win win situation for me. Much of your art takes place in the fantasy genre. What do you enjoy about creating fantasy art? I am definitely a fantasy

Weekly Artist Feature: kianamai

Each week, we interview a different artist and share their art and featured answers on our official Facebook page. This week's featured artist is @kianamai! What is the first piece of art you remember making? The absolute earliest thing I can remember is actually a little collab with my grandpa! My grandpa would always build things and he made a little, wooden table with folding legs. And I got to paint a picture on it! It was a lineup of me, my brother, my mom and my dad. It also had a rainbow and that classic “corner sun”. I believe it also had a little dog and cat on it despite my family not having a dog nor a cat at the time. How would you describe your style to someone who hasn't seen it? I don’t really know what my style is since each piece I do tends to look pretty different. It can range from really cartoony (like Big City Greens, the show I work on) or really anime, since that was my main influence growing up. I will say that my default style falls somewhere in between.

Celebrating Deviousness - September 2020

Celebrating Deviousness - September 2020

In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community INTRODUCING ALEXANDERPAUPOFF Hi, hello! I'm a thirty-something tutor in literature in English and I doodle in my free time. DeviantArt was my first experience of community. I accidentally discovered the site during high school, and wish I hadn't waited until six years after to make this account because I learnt so much here. Not just about art, but about people, about life and about myself too. I learnt that, much like being an artist, being a person too is a work in progress. It makes me happy to be here because DeviantArt has become my home online. I love it when I find art that I can't wait to feature and share with everyone I can reach. I love how alive and inclusive the community is and how there are so many ways to get involved. I think I even love it when I find people complaining about stuff here because it just shows their passion for the site.

A Tribute to Chadwick Boseman

A Tribute to Chadwick Boseman

Chadwick Boseman, an actor well-known and well-loved around the world, passed away last week. There have been many posts around the Internet about his passing, and we want to pay tribute to him as well by sharing works in honor of him from artists within the community. Chadwick Boseman’s first leading role in a feature film was Jackie Robinson in 42, portraying the first African-American to play in Major League Baseball. This was one of several instances where he portrayed a historical figure on screen, and he never shied away from that, having been quoted as saying, “People have said, 'You don't need to do any more biopics. You don't need to play any more real people.' I don't agree with that.” He took the importance of depicting African-American historical figures in film and theatre seriously, and he gave each and every role he played the knowledge and understanding that person deserved. Whether he was on the field as Jackie Robinson, dancing on stage as James Brown, or standing

Secret Santa 2020 sign-ups are OPEN!

Secret Santa 2020 sign-ups are OPEN!

Good work everyone on taking the opportunity to sign up for the Secret Santa 2020 event so far! :D 34 participants have signed up for this event over the last 24 hours since sign-ups started. :) That's not too bad of a start, but a lot of hard work needs to be done. This sign-up journal will remain pinned to the top on the Home tab of my profile page until sign-ups close. The two-week long break is now over! Time to get back to work! :) There are now 116 days remaining until Christmas 2020. The Summer Secret Santa 2020 event was a huge success! That event finished with a record number of participants signing up and most of the participants turning in their gifts. :clap: It's now time to move away from the Summer Secret Santa 2020 event. As daylight is slowly getting shorter and the temperatures are slowly starting to drop, NOW IS THE TIME to start thinking about being a Secret Santa for 2020! :dance: Existing participants from past events are eligible to
I will have to go offline from tonight at 9 PM to at least Wednesday night at least 7 PM due to a planned outage. I will see you all later on! :hug: :heart:
