LOOKING FOR A NEW FOUNDER!I’m sorry I’ve been such a bad founder and neglecting our group I’ve decided to hand over the reins, if anyone is interested in running this group themselves, give a reason why you want to be founder, I won’t play favorites, but whoever I think can improve the group the most, gets the job, so don't hate me for my choice.
Is anyone interested in becoming a contributor?Well out group hasn’t been very lively but if anyone is interested in becoming a contributor and helping me make our group better. Anyone is welcome, just message here and I shall promote you immediately
So we are having a contest!This is the group’s first contest; I hope we get plenty of submissions. I’ve had many ideas and given some suggestions on rules for this contest, like word play, a theme, and a word limit. Those all sound like good ideas and I will keep those in mind for later contest, for the first one I will just say: go nuts. Make what you want to make for this first contest; the theme can be anything you want, have as many words in it as you want, there are only a few rules.
It must be a short story
It must be in a text format
It can have mature content but nothing over 18
The contest will close one mouth from now on June 8th, if anyone feels they need more time it can and will be extended.
I want you to be as creative as you can for this contest but if your fanfic is all about and OC character then at least one real character form the Simpson’s has to be in there for at least half of the time. (or else it’s not really a Simpson
Contest?Is it just me or is this group dying before it even gets off the ground?
I think maybe we can spark things up with a contest. I’m thinking we have a suggested theme and the winner gets to have their work put in the Featured folder (there’s not much I can do in the way of prizes for now).
But before we get too excited if I hold a contest would anybody actually participate?
No point in having a contest if nobody enters.
Anyway I please give me your feedback on what you guys think.
I'm still trying to work everything outI’m still working a few bugs in running a group if anybody who is used to running a group can offer me any advice about anything it would be very appreciated. P.S. this is a literature group. I know I am letting in basic fan art but I don’t want that to overshadow the writing part of this group so please feel free to submit your fan art but don’t submit your whole gallery a fan art. I want to keep the main focus on writing.
Updates! Please Read!So I’ve noticed there’s been some confusion with submitting to the right so I’m going to make some updates to try and make it easier on all of you. I’ve always liked groups were deviants are immediately accepted so of course it will stay that way. But here’s some folder updates.
Note: illustrations that are not comics but have a story attached to them will still go under short stories or multi chaptered stories depending on how long the story is.
THIS FOLDER STAYS EMPTY!
I’ve made it so you can’t submit to this folder. I have my own reasons for wanting to keep this folder empty. I’ve never run a Group before but in other groups that I’m a part of everyone submits to the featured folder, and all folders go unused, accepted for contributed. There are a few things I’m pretty much obsessive compulsive about, and this is one of them. So this stays empty and anything suggested to featured will be rejected, I
Want more commissions?This journal is for artists who want to get more commissions, or want to open commissions and never had so they don't know how best to present their art, or even for those artists who took commissions before but would appreciate some more tips
There are a few pretty important things to consider before publicly announcing you're opening commissions:
1. payment method. The deviantart commission widget takes 20% of your profit, but then again more deviants have points so you're likely to get 20% more customers like that. But don't forget there are people who have paypal and don't feel like dealing with points so if you decide to open commissions through deviantart, don't let that be the ONLY payment method.
Paypal is the most common payment method used online and i strongly recommend it. Make a paypal account, connect it to a card and you're ready. But don't forget paypal has a limit of $3000 per year withdrawal. So if you're serious about drawing art for a living and you
Why I still draw mangaYou know what's the funny thing about getting older and (apparently) more serious with art? People ask you why you don't 'move on' with it.
Over the last few years, as my interest in art in general grew and I attended more traditional art workshops, the question that was most asked to me was:
"Why don't you move on from that manga style of yours?"
Implying that manga was a childish thing to draw, and that when I wanted to go anywhere more serious with my art, I would better move on to a more mature and realistic style.
Now, as some as you know I have close to no intention to go professional. It would take the fun out of drawing, in my opinion. But it honestly bothers me people see manga in such a negative light nowadays, especially considering we live in an era in which manga artists like yuumei, sakimichan or GENZOMAN (and many others) have build solid careers on their manga drawing skills,

Inspiration: youtube artists (part 1)Dear, deviantart fellow artists
Hi - so I'm starting new series of journals with useful resources - mainly because I'm running out of topics to write about and I just like some diversity. (I'll continue to post general art/motivational journals too every now and then)
Here are some of my favorite youtube artists, that inspire me and I hope that these resources might be helpful for you too.
'Level up!' is an idea of two Polish artists - Wojtek Fus ( WojciechFus ) and Darek Zabrocki ( daRoz ), who want to teach and learn from each other. Level Up has expanded a host team by amazing Jonas De Ro (JonasDeRo ) There are weekly, 2 to 3-hours long livestreams with critiques, overpaintings and Q&A's. It's so wonderful to watch them paint and talks about important tips on art and life as an artists. Also check out their
The Illuminated World ContestStock & Resources
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig
World Suicide Prevention Day
World Suicide Prevention Day 2014
Hey guys, Kate here. I’m this year’s Disability and Mental Health Rep at my University so I wrote this article for our Students' Union blog and I just wanted to take a little time to share it here too and to tell you that today is World Suicide Prevention Day. The World Health Organisation considers suicide a global issue and suggests that part of its international plans to combat it include more awareness and understanding of the problem.1 A little bit of this article is specific to my University but most of it is sound advice that everyone should read and consider.
All very interesting, I hear you say, possibly sarcastically. So let’s get serious for a second. When you come to University, a lot of us get told to stay away from drink, drugs, promiscuous sex, darkly lit parts of the city, strangers… the list of perceived dangers is seemingly endless and people love to warn you about them… but s
Characters I Might Trade [OTA]These characters were very loved, but with my many new adopted characters, now don't use them as much as I used to, and I don't want to keep characters that I don't use, when they could benefit of new owners that would give them the care and love they deserve? <3
Characters I might trades, if I get offers I find interesting enough:
Choco Mint --- Maneki (Can be turned into a Nekoi) --- Wasabi
They all come with many extra art and icons.
Feel free to offer any of the following:
-Art (quality over quantity)-
-Closed species character(s)-
-[AB](maybe?) offer a Mantibab (lol I can dream)-
Inspector Wolf The old lady was dead. I could smell it before I even got into the house. The whole place reeked of adrenaline, sweat, fear, copper and steel. He’d dropped her right in her living room. Chopped and chopped until she stopped moving. But I could tell I was getting close. This had been done in a hurry, and the killer didn’t have the time to clean up after himself like he usually did.
Across the room, the phone rang. The shrill sound set my teeth to grinding, but I ignored it. Instead I followed the killer’s bloody footprints into the back bedroom. He’d climbed out the window. If I hurried, I could catch up to him and end this disgusting spree he was on.
Then the answering machine kicked in. “Hi, Gramma! It’s Red. Sorry I’m running late. I kind of lost track of time. But don’t worry. I packed the picnic and I’m heading out the door right now. Love you.”
She’d been expec
