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
EMERGENCY! Really, help my friend!Please.Lately some of you might notice that one of my best friend here, on dA :iconhellatina: suddenly went offline. I don't want to tell anything, that she wouldn't want to say, but she's in HORRIBLE situation. She lost her job, and doesn't even have PC, since she had to sell it.
So this is it, I'm opening special commishes. For her, not for me, I won't take single $ from that money. I want to send her package full of food, and maybe something to cheer her up, like bunch of paper, or pencils, or anything.
Who is :iconhellatina She's lovely young woman from Colombia, she's been like a sister to me, even if we're at the other ends of the world. She's veterinarian, and she just lost her job in vet clinic. She's also talented manga artist and very good singer, singing in metal group called Slavedust. She's currently looking for a job, but I want to help her survive. If you don't want to commission me, you can help me by spreading word, or sending her package with some food too!

PE: Sketches and sketchbooksSketches and sketchbooks
Big, marvellous, elaborate, finished paintings and drawings you can see in various stunning galleries on dA and outside dA, while they require time and can occupy artist's workspace even for months, in a lot of cases make a small percentage of created pictures lying around the creator's desk. Sketches aren't just noted concepts or a stage in preparing an artwork - a couple of sketches a day can be the most influential source of improving your skills.
You have probably been through this more than once - far from your room, you got struck with a brilliant idea. In diffrent circumstances you'd most likely rush to transfer it onto paper or canvas, but well, that might be not so easy in a classroom or on a bus. It can be difficult even if you're home - how about more than one idea at once? Using a sketchbook as a notepad for any concepts is by far

Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is.
