Who/What Inspires You? - ProjectI'm going to try getting this rolling again. I'd like to know who or what inspires you, and why. The plan is to collect responses (you can be anonymous if you'd like) and post journals containing said responses. I think it'll be a good way to lift spirits and promote positivity within the community.Your inspiration can relate to art or life in general. It could come from a multitude of sources or people (both online and real life). If the person is on dA, please include their username. If you want your username listed in the journal, please include that as well.If you're interested in taking part, please follow the link below to leave your response:https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/56DD2J8The more details, the better. Thank you!Stay devious.
Upcoming Photomanip ContestIt's been a while since I've held a photomanip contest, so I think the time is right for another. However, I'm coming up dry for themes. I figured I'd turn to the community for unique ideas. Feel free to leave your thoughts or suggestions in a comment. In about a week or two, the suggestions will be voted for in a poll. The tentative run-time for the contest is the beginning of January to the beginning of March. I am also open to prize donations. Any and all help is of course appreciated.Thank you!
If I could DD (again)This is a feature for the "If I could DD" Community Project.

(Update) Photomanipulation Secret Santa 2014UPDATE: To give more people an opportunity to join, the new and final deadline to sign up will be December 1st.If you can spread the word, it will be highly appreciated. - - - - - - - - - -It seemed like many were interested, so here it is! What is a "Secret Santa"? "...a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift." (Wikipedia definition, so I didn't botch it ) However, in this particular event, you will be personally sending your gift to your assigned person, so you're only anonymous up until then. The only media being used is photomanipulation. All skill levels are welcome. As always, all stock must be legitimate (nothing from Google images, etc.) To enter, please send a note (no comments on this journal will be accepted). Make sure to include themes, colors, genres, etc. that you enjoy. P
Bringing back birthday featuresWaaay back in 2008, I started compiling a list of deviants' birthdays to keep track of who to feature at the end of each month.I'd like to start doing it again. To keep better tabs on things, I will just start a whole new list. The idea is to feature deviants at the end of their birth month, as a gift so to speak. So... if you're interested in being involved, simply comment with the month you were born in (no date needed). The features will begin on October 31st.

How to get noticed on deviantARTHi there! People asked me several times when I've became 'popular' on this site and in which way. I must admit I smelled a bit of envy in their tones, but the thing that troubled me more was that they didn't think that my work was worth all the pageviews I got over the years. Well, I wanted to explain this little thing right now... dA costed me a lot of work! It wasn't a 'BOOM! POPULAR!' thing at all for me.I had to study other people's methods too and to work hard on improving my art, and it wasn't easy. At all!So tonight I'm sharing with you some methods to get attention by dA community.Don't take them as unquestionable laws, just take them for what they are... Hints. They worked for me but they may not work for you.And now that you have a dA account... What should you do?► POST FINISHED ARTWORKS ONLYYour first post should be a fi
Collection: The Heartbeat of Modern MusicShare|ArchiveThe Heartbeat of Modern MusicFrom the days of Beethoven and Franz Liszt, to the Vaudeville stages of America in the1880s to the 1930s, to the electronic keyboards anchoring the rhythms of today’s rock groups and pop singers, the piano has been the heart of the music animating our popular entertainments. Not as sexy as the guitar, nor as brash as the drums, the pianos have been the steadying source of rhythm and timing holding together songs and other compositions for the past several centuries.

PE: Know your lineworkTraditional Art WeekWhen you like drawing, but seek for something stronger than pencil, ink might be a good choice. While it takes time to get used to it (like everything), it's not that hard when you learn the basics, and this article will focus on one of the common uses of ink - lineart.InkThe first thing that you need is ink. But what kind? Depending whether you plan to draw a lone ink drawing, or mix it with something else, there are different options for different ways of handling your picture. Here are the most common choices:Waterproof ink - is the most useful when you want to add a layer or layers of paint or water-diluted ink (with a brush) over your your lineart.Not waterproof ink, like Indian or China ink. It's suitable when your picture is 100% drawing and you don't plan painting over it (of course, you can go ahead and experiment with smudging it with water, but this article focuses just on the lineart).Coloured ink - whatever yo
