You’ll love this handpicked collection of adoptables, so consider buying some of their work! @MagicalEGirl “Hello, I’m MagicalEGirl, and I design adoptable outfits. My love for design started at a young age, and discovering DeviantArt later on gave me a platform to showcase my art. I started posting my original characters and designs, and as many people gave support and showed interest in them, I decided to become MagicalEGirl and dedicate this account to adoptables! “My purpose is to design outfits that inspire people and make their imagination flow—outfits that tell a story just by looking at them!” See more in @MagicalEGirl's Shop @Amepan “The DA community has helped me over the years to grow as a self-taught artist and to be free and confident with the variety of my art style.

Feature: Shading, Color Theory, and More
This curated feature is brought to you by @BeckyKidus, who posts monthly features like this one to their Profile. It’s September, and people who watch me know I’m in the middle of a series showcasing tutorials and undiscovered artwork. The first part of this feature includes tutorials related to shading and color theory, and the second part is a selection of artwork I’ve discovered recently with fewer than 50 favourites. If you’d like to see more features like this, previous features I’ve put together are linked at the bottom of this journal.

Tutorials: Shading and Color Theory Shading and color theory are important in all kinds of artwork and are considered fundamentals for a reason—and, like most fundamentals, they can be quite tricky.

Drawtober 2023: Draw every day in October!
Create and submit artwork each day throughout October to earn up to three badges for your Profile! Drawtober is an art community tradition that encourages artists to create a new piece of art each day for the entire month of October. The goal isn’t to make your best artwork possible each day, but instead to inspire creativity, to help practice and hone skills, and to build good creative habits. For Drawtober 2023, DeviantArt has compiled a list of prompts for you to use as a starting point for each day. Having said that, you should let your imagination and creativity guide you. If you’re feeling particularly inspired to make an idea that doesn’t match with that day’s theme, create what you’re feeling inspired to create! Drawtober Prompts 1. Spooky 2. Pumpkin 3. Cityscapes 4. Corn 5. Pumpkin Pie 6. Origami 7. Treats 8. Orange 9. Tangle 10. Possessed 11. Nightmare 12. Scream 13. Thirteen 14. Moon 15. Graveyard 16. Scarecrow 17. Spiderman 18. Zombie 19.
