Roman Eagle Tattoo Contest
:new: Roman Eagle Contest :new:
Eagles.  Beautiful, graceful, majestic birds. Used as symbols of power in many ancient cultures, from Egypt to Rome and by many countries as their national symbol today.

I'm holding a contest to design a special Roman eagle tattoo for my fiancé.  The tattoo will go on his upper back and shoulders.  And I may as well state that he has a preference for black tattoos.
Open to ALL design ideas and concepts.  Realistic, formalised, abstract or stylised.  Whatever you like as long as it looks COOL and can work as a tattoo!  All mediums accepted if it works!
The winning design will receive special prizes!

The Best of January Visual Art!
Now it's time for January 2009 Visual Art Features, many new art to discover! The first of year!
I'm making it sooner as i'm gonna be wihtout internet connexion for a few weeks ;p
:pointr: Run by karemelancholia since 1 year & 11 monthes.
Don't forget that many artists need to be viewed, they deserve it!
Fave Fave Fave!
My main purpose in doing a monthly feature about (to my point of view) 'the best visual art' is to put in the same level as well wellknown artists and popular creations as unknown artists and under-exposed creations.
Artists need to be supported.
So don't be shy!

Visit their pages, support them by faving, commenting, and when you see a deviation that you like also view their gallery entirely, like that you can decide if you will devwatch them or not.
Viewing only a deviation (what is great) is not enough ;-)

And if you want to see your favorite visual artists or art selected to be in this feature for the next month,

Wicked Wormsy presents... DD Suggestions I
:D I always thought that being on dA means not only sharing your own Art with others but sharing the Art of others with others too. :laughing:
;) Sounds complicated, doesn't it? :lmao:
:D To make it simpler: I love doing features in my Journal to show my friends my finds.
:aww: But as I also love showing those finds to bigger audience, I love sending DD suggestions to our amazing Gallery Moderators. :heart:
:aww: It makes me very happy when my suggestions are accepted. It would make me even happier if all of them were.
:laughing: Unfortunately the number of spots for DDs is limited and with tens of suggestions every GM is getting daily it's impossible to showcase them all.
:excited: So here goes the feature I was thinking of for quite some time...
:heart: First: a few gems that received the DD.
:heart: Next: quite a bunch of amazing images that were suggested by me but for many reasons weren't granted the feature.
:D One small disclaimer though. I am NOT goi

Anybody whos anybody knows that Tachy-on's LOL Corner is the place to go for giggles and mishaps. But for Baz135 and I, you can never have too much of a good thing. So here are some of our favourite quotes from various dAmn rooms that didn't get into the LOL Corner.
the only "young" bar in our area
(the only dance club in 40 miles)
has "free wifi" advertised on their Marquee
i was like.. wow
cuz.. when I think about going out and drinking and dancing.. I bring my laptop along
Just in case the bar has wifi
Cause, you know, I want to go on Wikipedia while someone's gettin' jiggy with it.
I'm absolutely sure that's what it is
you wanna be able to google chlamydia when someone whispers it in your ear.
At the moment it happens.
Go on a dA chatroom: Hey guys, guess what I'm getting right now!

Forums for Dummies
Short Intro to the deviantART Forums.
:bulletblue: Where to find the Forums.
The first step you should take before using the forum is to access them and give a general look around to get an idea on how they are, but how can you see them if you don't know how to find them? Luckily finding the forums is really easy, all you have to do is clicking the link Forum that you'll find on the top of deviantART pages (if you customized your "More" menu, you'll have to click on "More" and you'll find a link to the Forum in the Spotlight category). So now that you know how to get to the Forum page go and give a look at them.
:bulletblue: General Information.
With a first glance you will notice a really basic forum structure, with a list of forum name on the right, the number of topics and post in the middle and on the left a link to the latest thread posted for each of them. If you try clicking on one of the forum names

Shiba Inu in the Arts
Hello all! :) :heart:
I wanted to do a small feature on my favourite dog breed, the Shiba Inu.
The Shiba Inu is a small Spitz breed that originates from Japan.
Shiba are known for their crazy attitude, and high independence. Though, don't be fooled, otherwise your Shiba Inu will fool you! These dogs are not for the faint of heart. They are tough little dogs that teach you many lessons in life. One of them being patience. You will never find another dog as unique as the Shiba Inu.

Have any questions about the Shiba Inu? Feel free to ask me! I own one. :lol:
Here are a few lovely pieces showing the Shiba Inu;

I will never forget how Keith's jaw dropped when I opened the package to reveal the gorgeous original... and how I teared up just a little. Thank you so much.


Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
With a record level of nominations and suggestions on an almost daily basis, it would be hard to ignore the community call to recognise such a fine example of a deviant as `snowmask. Her constant presence since the formative years of deviantART has never wavered, demonstrating a natural ability to seek out and motivate those in need.

Katie's beautifully delicate artworks are elegant and instantly recognisable due to her finely tuned creative style, a clear reflection of her personality. With a multitude of journals which are thought provoking, funny and resourceful, it's impossible not to be touched by such a bright light in our community. Congratulations Katie!

Hello, my name is Katherine...

Friends call me Katie. I am a painter, and my husband zerocomplex manages my work. I also serve as a curator and Public Relations Officer for resurgere.

Deepthroat Leakage

Wed Apr 27, 2011, 1:24 PM


Hello! A lot has happened since the last time I updated my journal, and I wish to share the news one step at a time. deviantART is still, after so many years, one of the primary places where I share finished work. Since the launch of my website at the start of the new year, I have over the past few months established a system of where to post updates of my paintings, detailed walkthroughs and works-in-progress.

This section on my website is for what goes on "behind the scenes". Archived here are walkthroughs of my paintings, which I update on a regular basis, and it is also where I'll be sharing photos of how I get my paintings ready for exhibits.

High resolution images of my works-in-progress accompanied by detailed annotations are posted exclusively on my website.

There are two very convenient ways to receive updates of "In Studio" postings via the website's resources. By selecting "art update feeds" from the top right menu located at the header, there are options for subscribing directly to RSS, or to receive RSS alerts via email.

Here is another way to follow updates of all things related to my work, as updates from my website are fed directly here and are automatically posted to the Wall. Some finished works are posted here, although not of high resolution. Simply "like" the page to stay in touch.

Finally, there's my Facebook profile, where I like to post work-in-progress images in a "teaser" fashion, in that they are the most up-to-date, but with longer intervals and much less continuity between one step and the next in the painting process. By comparison, "In Studio" is where the most complete documentation of my works-in-progress can be enjoyed, however each detailed walkthrough on my website are posted only after a painting is finished.

In other words, for those who thirst for as-soon-as-possible updates, this is the place to go. There is also plenty of sideshow entertainment, as this is pretty much the only place where I post photos of my husband Keith's delicious cooking, as well as photos of my cats Chiko and Perry getting into feline shenanigans.

Question Tiem

Have you ever tried to relive a happy experience? Was it just as good, better, or disappointing?

My husband and I experimented with this once and we have concluded that at least for us, moments should never be "chased after". So many little things come together to form a full experience, an exceedingly happy one, and it all just falls into a chain of events that almost seems orchestrated - such perfection cannot be replicated by conscious human planning, no matter how scrupulous the eye... and I'd like to think I haven't lost that particular touch.

What happened the second time was by no means bad, but it definitely "wasn't the same". Many months ago Keith brought this up with me and I learned that happy occurrences should always be cherished, and that my ambitions should turn to the future and the new, instead of awkwardly embracing a loved one from behind with both arms backwards.
