DD and Upcoming Contestdaily deviation and upcoming contest
A bit late thank you goes to The-Average-Alex for suggesting and Moonbeam13 for featuring my "Black Swan" piece. Its my 4th DD and I am really honored. Thank you goes to deviantArt`s FB page as well for featuring the work over there as well. Feedback was amazing.
I am planning on hosting a new contest. Inspired by the great feedback on my interpretation of Black Swan movie piece I decided it would be a good idea to host a contest where you would have to create an artwork based on a movie, song, video game etc. As long as its not a typical fan art but it incorporates your own vision.
I have a nice amount of prizes to donate myself, but I do need a help from a community. So if you would like to donate anyting please drop me a note, it would be appreciated.

Need help with some php files for websiteOkay, like the title says, I need some urgent help with some php files for my new website design.
The design is purchased from themeforest, for some reason, its missing few php files required for contact form to work properly. Few other things as well. And since my skills are quite poor when it comes to any kind of coding I need help. Willing to pay.
Anyone that is able to help, please note me!

Issues with viewing deviationsWebsite | Facebook | Prints | Google + | Twitter | MySpace | Delicious | f.a.q.
DevArt has been acting weird for me, while the page itself loads fine I cannot view any thumbs or user avatars, deviation takes forever to load, notes as well. I have a lot of unread notes but when trying to open one I usually get error message, two "XX" or nothing at all. Comments I can acess, but replying to them and waiting to "send" the reply is also taking forever. I checked the forums as well as posted my own topic but no help so far, tho I would like to thank all

The dragon is a staple of so many fantasy stories that it can be difficult to keep up with them all.
Dragons in different universes abide by different rules; some are friendly, some are clever, some are pure evil, and some are trainable. What all dragons have in common is that in the realm of TV and movies, they need to look good to properly play their part in the story. There are hundreds of dragons that have shown up on

Over the last year I've participated in many challenges that required me to do a drawing a day for a period of time. Most notably the color challenge and refinement challenge, but also a lot of speedpainting and daily sketching.

PE: Decorating Your ProfileCommunity Week
Your profile page is the first thing people will see when they click on your name, so it's very important to leave a good impression! This article will provide some useful tips and tricks for both premium and non-premium members who want to convert their profile into their own, unique page. First off, some Do's and Don'ts of profile decoration:
Use dA's profile widgets-- there are lots of great options to chose from

Express your personality through colors, stamps, gifs, etc.
Add so many images that your profile takes forever to load
Use garish or headache-inducing colors
Make text difficult to read with dark backgrounds
While many widgets are restricted or locked for non-premium members, there are still a variety of great widgets that you can add to your profile, even without a membership.
Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi

And if you do a remarkably fabulous job at designing your profile, people will not only be impressed, but they will also keep coming back to take another look. In this article, I will go over some useful tips and tricks for making your profile look professional but also personalized!
This article is mostly directed towards Premium Members, but non-Premium members can still use some of these concepts to personalize their page.
In addition, for those who are new to profile decoration, I highly suggest reading my Decorating Your Profile tutorial first, as it goes over important basics of profile decoration.

Tips for smooth clean line artHi,
Is your line art shaky, wobbly, sloppy, fat, uneven or pixelated? The subject of clean line art comes up a lot so I've gathered together a number of tips from various DA members that may help you improve your line art. Some of the techniques described below may contradict other techniques described below so you may want to experiment and decide what works best for you. Most of these assume that you have a digital tablet. (Make sure your tablet drivers have been installed correctly. If your cursor is behaving erratically it may indicate a problem with your tablet or drivers.) Some posts have been edited for brevity or spelling:
"I developed my own technique. And it works quite well for me. It raised my Lineart cleanliness from 24% to 98%, yeah, really. Here is how I do it digitally when I'm not using a traditional sketch:
First a rough sketch, and I isolate it in its own layer then set its opacity to 50 or something near that value.
Then on the second layer
So you want to do commissions?A basic guide to setting up commissions
When it comes to commissioning, there is so much that needs to be decided, arranged and thought of that it can all appear a bit daunting at first.
However: when following a couple of basic guidelines, setting up commissions really is not as hard as you think!
If you find the article informative, please it.
First things first
So you have decided you want to start doing commissions. That's great!
The first thing to do is to determine what you want to offer.
Do you want to offer drawings, or designs?
Will you be coding journal-skins for people, or will you be pixeling?
Take a look through your gallery and try to determine what you do best and what you like to do the most.
Because that will most likely be what you'll be offering.
Stick to what you're good at.
Don't promise what you can't deliver when someone is paying you for it.
Now that you've mo
