Almead Contest Winners!Hey! I'm back online, time to announce winners *u*
I love the color scheme for Eskella here, and also her very fitting figure!
I love the thick hair of Eri and her all jewelry! She has just gorgeous and perfect body, very suiting to character!
Awesome idea and perfect representation for clothing design theme. It's very matching to the character, I totally see Aaia wearing such stuff. Also, character itself is really well drawn!
Very sexy and beautiful piece! Also has perfect cold colour scheme for Eskella. I love her pose and perfect face!
What a cutie she is! I'm surprised it was drawn by dA Muro, cause I know it's hard to work with. I'm happy artist remembered about her hair sticks!
Awesome picture that had my instant love. This represents all girls just as they exist in my head. Also, the outfit that Erinel has is plain gorgeous.

How to make the list is easy:
Make a post in your dA journal (the manual INCLUDED - I wont grant any wishes, if I see no manual). The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
If you wish for real-life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random jou
How to be popular on dA? +Question to good people.I've been asked few times "what did you do that you became popular?". And I don't know what to answer due to simple problem. The thing is.. I'm not popular at all! When saying "popular" I think about people who have few million pageviews, get 5-10k favs on every piece etc. This is popularity! What can I say about popularity at that level I'm familiar with? I'll try to explain it in few points.
First? Remember that deviantART is COMMUNITY! Come on, spend some time to go around this page, comment on other people's stuff, make some friends! Of course do not try to befriend people just to get benefits from it, it doesn't work that way! The best explanation? Have fun! Spend more time on dA than 2 minutes just to check your inbox. The more you're involved with dA community the bigger chance that you will get noticed! "Forunth watches 3,082 people, while 918 people watch Forunth." <-- see?
Other thing, originality. Let's imagine, you have drawn portrait of a random woman with pencils
Special commissions first lots will get discounts~As some of you know, I'm currently trying to earn enough money to pay my overdue bills, and get food and medicines I need. So I'm going to open only few types of commissions for now.

Special deal: get 3 for the price of 2!
Type 2: Simple, fast portrait
This will be drawn on small watercolor paper with copic markers. I can add simple background to that for free.
Special: If you order more than 4, 5th one is free~
HospitalHello. I'm Forunth's boyfriend and I was asked to post this info, so her friends wouldn't worry about her. She is in hospital for couple of days. I can't say why she is there, please don't ask about it. I'm sure she will be back soon. I will upload some scans she asked me to upload today and tomorrow, but I'm deviantart noob, so it will take me some time to understand how to do it properly.
I'm sure Foru will be happy to read some good wishes for her, she deeply needs it.
Dawid, Forunth's boyfriend.

What I hate about dA community.Lately I've been talking with some of my friends, and almost all of them agreed that dA society has serious illness. And this illness is being overconfident and not realizing your mistakes.
I've dug through some galleries last time and I was amazed how many people didn't make big improvement during the years. If any. And all off them had something in common, they all had written about their work "This looks really good!", "I love how it looks" etc. It's okay to be proud of your drawings, to achieve every small step. But what if you will become arogant piece of shit? Do you really have right to praise your own work? Of course, when you're professional artist (and by this I don't mean if you sold some commissions... But if you do it for living) it's okay to say "I offer high quality stuff for my clients". I've always said, the day when I will be 100% satisfied with my work, will be my last step on progression ladder. It will be day when I will beco
PracticeBy now everybody already knows that becoming a good artist doesn't come from talent alone. On contrary; talent is a myth. Like the famous quote goes: "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration". Meaning so much that even with a good idea and a bright mind, you still have to work your ass off in order to achieve something. While this makes mad skills available for basically everybody, I still hear many people complain about practice being a rather boring thing, or about them practicing a lot but still getting nowhere.
So I thought; Oh well... Why no article about practice?
Conscious vs unconscious practice
First of all lets divide practice in roughly two types. You have the conscious type of practice. This is the kind of practice in which you're sitting down and thinking to yourself "Hell yeah! I'm gonna draw some <subject> today to get better at this!". And then there's the unconscious type of practice. The type of practice that is often more playful an

Art and value of timeDear, deviantart fellow artists
Our lives go by so fast and the time for what we really want to do is limited. So, how to wisely value our time, how to make the best of every single day and keep on creating?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
Sort what are the most important things you need to do as soon as possible and start with that. Make a list with what needs to be done and sort them by how necessary it is to do them, how much time it will aproximately take and how the result could impact your life. We have to make constant sacrifices in order to achieve our goals - instead of watching that useless youtube video, instead of checking e-mail and social media sites all the time, instead of whining that there is no time, but actually using what we have - everyone of us have 24h in a day, the difference between

AKUXBLOSSOM OFFICIALLY CANONLadies and gentlemen, friends and foes, etc:
We are gathered here today in honor of our precious babies, to celebrate a triumph previously unknown to our kind. Yes, the small but devout followers of the cult of Akublossism can now savor the sweet taste of satisfaction knowing their wildest dreams are at hand. I speak of absolution, my friends. I speak of the glory of the massive and indestructible ship we sail, and our conquest of the turbulent waters of the internet to spread our gospel to every fandom-shore.
I speak of endless possibilities, or more specifically, ONE possibility that has been acknowledged by Cartoon Network.
Some of you may be aware of IDW Publishing's new endeavors with Cartoon Network properties. Some of you may even be aware of one such project, Super Secret Crisis War, a work that includes both Aku and Blossom in its plot.
Long have we awaited this day, and at last it has come. Today may it be known that when the disbelieving world looks down upon us as fo
