It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out

Frequently Asked Questions
Now listen up, I learned all of this from reading tutorials on the internet, so there's no reason why you shouldn't do the same! That's what you do when you want to learn a new skill, you read about it! So instead of being asked, here is some reading to do. Now READ IT!! Also, tutorials for BJD face ups apply to plastic/vinyl dolls most of the time, so you can read about both of them.

Okay... We played a little last year about doing a collaboration between Heavy Metal and DeviantART. We got some guys on the back covers, we got a few articles in the mag, but we need to step up the game a little.
It is so hard to get your work published these days and thank god Kevin
Eastman understands that. So having put together some special issues of
Heavy Metal recently I pitched Kevin on forgetting the idea of a few
DeviantART pin-ups or a gallery...
Instead we'll do an entire issue of Heavy Metal from the DeviantART community. Yup, 100 pages of dA goodness wrapped in slick glossy paper. We're going to aim for an issue as soon

WHY ARE SALES SO LOW WHEN THEY'RE MAKING SO MANY COMIC BOOK MOVIES?
By Dave Elliott
Another in a series of mind boggling trips into the inner workings of the industry OR I bet you thought it was going to be more fun than this.
There is often talk of cycles in comics, how readers turn over every 3/4/5/25 years, booms and busts, everyone is leaving for Hollywood, kids don't read comics because of video games…
Do you know how many are true?
Probably all of them. Twenty-odd years ago, it was the established fact that the majority of comic book readers came and went in three years. Most of the market wasn't around long enough
DISCLAIMER #1!: This is not an official DeviantART project and DeviantART will not be involved in making selections or in processing any royalty payments.
I have always loved anthologies. Growing up in Britain 95 percent of the comics were weekly anthologies so it has been firmly ingrained in my psyche.
I've always felt that anthologies are a good platform for experimentation, trying new ideas and styles, introducing new talent and especially good to read in the bathroom. I'll never forget the impression Heavy Metal had on me when I first saw it.
They're perfect for those moments when you've read through the 100 comics you've bought that
A quick note that I've started up a new weekly blog series called Freelance Friday, the focus of which is pretty self-explanatory :) I'm starting with a series roughly following the process of a freelance gig and the things that come up along the way.

Appropriately given it's halloween, the Dead Roots anthology - which I did art for a story in - is available on iTunes today! Pick it up here !
It's a gorgeous anthology, w/ some wonderfully human stories and a lot of great creators involved. If you like it, we'd so love it if you'd post around or leave a review to support all the creators involved <3
