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.

Elf Christmas Wishlist 2013Motherpost was submitted by saniika
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
Really sick! I'm sorry for delays.Hey guys, I'm in bad shape last days, My spine sickness is killing me. I really CAN'T draw these days, I'm in huge pain, my hands are shaky and I feel really bad. Even had to go to ER so they would give me painkiller shot in the butt :I
So I'm sorry to BonBon2013 TsunadeShirahime Hecateslight But I will be late with your christmas gifts girls. I really couldn't do it earlier. I'm really sorry!
Also I haven't progressed on any commisshes yet, I'm sorry for that. I will be getting stronger painkillers soon, it might help me get back on track.
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
ALMEAD WINTER CONTEST WINNERSSo contest has been judged by my friends, I'm sure people who entered really want to know winnerssss
So here's tiny commentary about entries
I really like flowy hair of Daemla here. Artist represented character really good, with nice bold colors.
Another Daemla, represented in nice way. Intense orange hair contrast well with background and I love her beautiful delicate face Her freckles and intense green eyes are also very nice touch!
And ANOTHER Daemla! I guess she has most fans. Such a cute entry! Just look at that little Ei! How cute it look, and I really like big gown of her, even if it doesn't really match her times, it's still very nice.
Forunth this time, I like idea for her outfit, really nice! And I like how artist respected small details, like her haircolor or her tattoos. Also I really like the pose

-Please draw Amelia with her bunny ears & tail
And then I returned...It's been a while since I've been actively online.
But even though temporary, it did changed my perspective on some matters.
It's weird how much the internet can become an influence, and how this process goes so unnoticed. At a certain point the countless voices of people around you blend into a continuous buzz. A buzz that you soon get so familiar with that you forget there was a life before it. I guess that's what social media does in general; creating a buzz. An artificial need for you to continuously be online and check your messages, because you might just miss something otherwise. Life, in general, has become so infused with the internet that it sometimes scares me. I'm part of the internet industry. Hell, I even made it my job! But even I sometimes find myself wondering where the time has gone that I could work on an artwork for hours straight, without feeling that creeping itch to check my messages.
The last few weeks before the break, I've repeatedly felt bad about

PE: How to Make Pixel CloudsHow to Make Pixel Clouds
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to make pixel clouds. I have two different types of clouds I use depending on the piece; semi-realistic, and cartoon style. I will be showing you both today!
Let us start!
The semi realistic style can be done two ways, depending on if you are limiting colors or not.
First, I'm going to show you the way for if you do not care how many colors you use.
First you will pull out your pencil brush, as you would normally do when making pixel art, and set the color to white. After that, set the opacity to around 10%-20%.
Randomly brush side to side with the pencil, and then overlap some lines randomly as well.
Keep doing that until the cloud if about as big as you need it; it should look something like this.c:

We Are Resurrecting!:iconwriters-workshop:
Following our previous journal on our zombifiction revival, I am pleased to say it is crazy enough to have a go! I don’t expect every one of our 1500 members to get involved, but even if there is a handful each time getting some good out of this, then that’s one handful getting a better attack on their writing and understanding their niches. These groups hold a great opportunity to explore and stretch even the more experienced writers, and I believe that’s what made this group so good to begin with.
The Plan Batman
So here is my plan.
In May, we will hold a new workshop. The entire workshop will be encapsulated in one month: 2 weeks to write, 2 weeks to workshop.
Week 1, Day 1: Workshop brief is launched and you have 2 weeks to submit. The standard to what you submit can be anything from a rough draft to something you have worked on, it doesn't even have to be complete yet. (Please ensure you pu
