Interested for more Artist Interviews?Hey everyone!
As some of you may know, I did a series of Artist interviews during our Project Educate Week along with my C&C partner alexandrasalas. I interviewed Dreamwork's animation Arthur Fong, Sony Pictures Animation Sam Kallis, a famous Thai CG artist and illustrator Victorior and a Brazilian author who is working as a leader for various successful comic projects FelipeCagno.
All of the interviews gathered a great number of readers and I am happy that they were all well accepted by the DeviantART community. And it's definitely worth trying to do more so as we get to know more insights and various experiences from the people who are continuously making various creative fields alive.
So before anything else, I would like to ask a few questions:
Are you interested for more Artist/Writer interviews such as the 4 articles above?If yes, then
Your happiest moment recently?So I really wanted to test out the new Comments feature here on dA and I thought of, "Why not make it unique as well?"
So yeah, I want to know what are your happy moments recently? Did you meet a new friend or did you meet a friend from ages ago? Did your crush smile at you? Or did you go to the mountains and felt peace and calmness within you?
There are a lot of things that can make us happy. They can be grand moments but happiness is also found even in the simplest of times. What matters most is that you felt it and made you feel whole :')
go go go, let us know

With So Much Love IIHello everyone! I hope you are all doing well I would like to take this opportunity to share my favorite deviations from last year. I really intend to share this before December ended, but due to my vacation and stuffs, I was not able to make it but told myself that I must, in any way, find a way to share these amazing deviations that caught my attention throughout 2013.
This is my second year end feature and you can check the first one here and help me revisit all those golden feelings that I felt after seeing those feature pieces.
And to quote:
This collection is not just an ordinary collection for me. Do you know the feeling whenever you see something and you'll immediately have an indescribable feeling just by looking at that thing? It happens rarely on my part and that's why, I need a collection so I can collect and check them from time to time so I will remember the great feelings whenever I s

External Hard Drive problems: help neededHello!
Calling all geeks and all the techy guys out there :____:
I'll make this really short and quick. So the thing is, my hard drive is not responding. Though I can still see in the "Safely Remove" section on windows, my hard drive is not showing up on my Windows explorer. But when I checked the Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management, I saw this:
So the status of my HDD is now UNALLOCATED and I really don't want to repartition this as I will definitely lose all my files. I was able to still use this yesterday but after plugging it in in a Macbook Pro, i cannot access it anymore. We were able to do this without any problems before so I didn't have any "fear" of plugging it in a MAC laptop again. IDK if that was the reason, but it just happened that it was the case, so I am telling this as it might help us see the possibilities.
So my question i

mirz-alt posted this on twitter and I thought that this is fun
So I still have some spare points here so I thought of having this as a contest as well. XD This is just for fun!

Just give me the numbers in the comments section.Deviants who will enumerate 5 lies in the comments below will be automatically included in the raffle. Answers with less than or more than 5 items will be disqualifiedOnly 1 comment per person. However, you can talk to other players by replying to their comments Once your guess is posted, I'll give you a number for the raffle.Have fun!
In the event that a person can guess all the lies correctly, he/she will win 200 points (only one person can win this)!
Using HTML on deviantART
Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.
Some basic html
Bold text: <b>insert text here</b>

Label Me Lesbian: A Guide to Types of Lesbians [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink]
The following is an extensive guide to the different Labels a Lesbian may have. In my experience I have come across many Lesbians who just thought they were a Lesbian. This guide was at first for TheLesbianClub's Chatroom Classes, but I have decided that this could benefit not only the club but many people out there. If you are a Lesbian and questioning what type of Lesbian you are, then this guide is for you!
[Bullet; Pink] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Purple] [Pride] [Bullet; Purple] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink]
Lesbian is a term most widely used in the English language to describe sexual and romantic desire between females. The word may be used as a noun, to refer to women who identify th
Get Puzzle'd Community Contest! 10TH BIRTHDAY BASH GET PUZZLE'D COMMUNITY CONTEST
You remember what it was like. Opening a dusty cardboard box,
yellowed with age, found in Grandma's attic. Dumping the 500
puzzle pieces on the kitchen table. Striving for several tedious
hours to complete a picture of assorted flowers in a vase, or a
kitten playing with string. Filling time until your parents picked
you up from dear ol' Granny's place. Boring.
Well, this puzzle is nothing like that! We're taking a fun and
innovative take on a classic puzzle game, to celebrate
Writing Effective DialogueWe've all struggled through figuring out how to write dialogue that not only gets the information out there, but also helps build characters or advance the plot. There are tons of books and blogs out there on the topic, too. But just reading about it doesn't do much good if we're not ready to try it out. Give it a go and see what other people think. But let's start with the basics.
What is Effective Dialogue?
Dialogue that's written well will reveal character traits, add to the tension and suspense, helps cut down on text walls of description and of course, advances your plot. One of the most important things to keep in mind when you're writing dialogue is that in fiction, your reader doesn't want to read all the mundane things we say on a regular basis. So if it's not moving the plot or adding to your character's personality, you should think about cutting it completely.
What do I mean by reveals character traits?
How to get noticed on deviantART!:faq56:
I've had many people ask me this question so I'm going to elaborate the best I can.
As the FAQ above states, to get far on deviantART you HAVE to give feedback to get it. It's almost virtually impossible for you to get noticed without doing any of that. I learned that after a year of being here.
This is something that you will have to do in your dA lifetime in order to find your inspirations and be able to learn new techniques. When on the front page of deviantART it's probably the most diverse amount of artwork you'll see! Ranging from pixels to sculptures, tattoos to anime to poems, there has to be at least one that can catch your eye! There are millions of deviants here and even more submissions! Try searching for artworks that please you. You can even have a randomized search by using stuff like the random d
How to draw during 365 days
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?
7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better ArtistPractice, practice, practice. Gah.
Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons. Artistically
How to beat procrastination (part 1)As I said on a previous submission, I'm planning to make some tutorials on the upcoming December. Before that, however, I feel like I can help on another subject, which comes before even starting your drawing: Procrastination. I mean, procrastination towards your own drawings.
If you're not familiar with this word:
pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|
"the action of delaying or postponing something."
Why am I talking about this?
Well, a year ago I used to be a professional procrastinator. I've imposed the 365 Days of Doodles challenge to myself for this particular reason.
While procrastination is to some degree a natural phenomenon and can’t be completely eradicated, you can use the following strategies to get in the habit of getting drawings done.
Mind that these are not golden rules or such, just strategies that work fo
