AAAccckKK!WWWWWHHHHHAAAA? IVE BEEN HERE A YEAR?????
Accomplishment. Now I gotta do something for this.
Hoorah! I've Made My 100 Theme's Variation!Now, I know that this'll probably be one of those never-get-to-do-because-i-forget-about-them-or-is-too-lazy-to-do-them projects, but I gotta keep myself occupied. I was just gonna do the original or regular variations, but there were some things that I didn't wanna do, like rainbow. There is no way I'm drawing a prissy rainbow. So even though its a little suckish that I've prepared my own list and could've possibly planned out all 100 drawings, but I SWEARRIEEE that I don't know what to do for some. SO Derfore, CHARGE!
13. No Color
17. No Way Out

31. Hold My Hand
33. Trouble Lurking
35. Are You Challenging Me?
40. Breaking the Rules

How To Photograph Your Paintings
How To Photograph Your Paintings
In this article I want to discuss a common problem that some traditional artists have. That's photographing your paintings. Whether it be for selling prints or just getting your art noticed online the importance of having paintings look great is key. If your fortunate enough to have a scanner for smaller pieces then that's great! But if your working on large canvases or paper then you can run into issues. The most common problem artists have are Glare, Blur and Color. All of which will be discussed in this article.
Anyone who has worked with acrylics and oils knows what a problem this can be when your trying to take a picture of a painting. This is not as much a issues for a artist working with watercolors

Giveaways NEED to STOP!Giveaways on deviantART need to stop! They're having a number of detrimental effects on the community at large. Within this article, I aim to discuss this problem, as well as provide alternatives for giveaways. I'll begin by outlining what a giveaway is, both in the real world and on deviantART; explain why giveaways are simply not for deviantART; illustrate my points with real-world examples; and then go into detail on what exactly the aforementioned detrimental effects are. Additionally, I will counteract a number of excuses people use for holding and entering giveaways; as well as offer alternatives to giveaways for both parties.
I know the article is quite long, but this is an issue which myself and a growing number of other community members feel to be important. But I promise, it doesn't actually take too long to read once you get going!
If you agree with my points in this article, or even simply find the debate interesting, I would appreciate
My Pixel Winter ContestTime has finally come to have our very own official pixel art contest to give away some prizes and share the love with pixel community!
Christmas and winter overall is, at least for me, a very merry time of the year - families come together to celebrate Christmas, children play outside and have fun building snowmen. We all celebrate this time of the year differently with our own traditions. And this is what we want to see from you. It doesn't matter if you are a pixel art wizard or someone who tries it for the very first time, create something awesome in pixel art and share your idea of a perfect winter with us.
You have almost one whole month to create your entry for this contest. Contest runs from 12th of December until 9th of January.
But before you start we have some rules for you to follow.
1. Entry has to be created for this contest and can't be taken from your old work.
2. You can't use any pre-made templates, bases, etc
