Holiday Card Project 2013It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

A brief history of FellaWe all know Fella. If you have been a member of deviantArt for at least 1 day it's quite probable you've encountered him at least once, he's everywhere! And this shouldn't come as a surprise, he's dA's mascot after all! But how much do you know about him? Let's take a look at a Brief History of deviantART's mascot.Fella was brought to life thanks to switched, who designed him back in April 2001 for a mascot contest. Back then he didn't look exactly as we know him today, his figure was a lot more basic and circular and his expression wasn't as human as we're used to today. However his main features remain, his mischievous look and his colors, most probably based on the site layout's at the time

21 Draw: character design reference bookhttps://www.indiegogo.com/projects/21-drawI'm one of the artists who'll provide some art for the book. There are many great great artists participating in the book and I'm sure it'll be a perfect reference book for any artists, and I imagine it'll also be a nice art book for browsing for non-artists. (I was excited to see Kim Jung Gi in the list, he's so crazy talented.) I can't wait to get the book myself!The book has reached its goal 2 and a half days after the campaign started, but there are stretch goals which will make the book even more better. I hope you'll be interested!
Bad Teachers and Egotistical Jerkwads Good lord, another journal. Well, sometimes I go for a month without writing one, so suffer! :iconinuevillaughplz:I've been asked about this recently, so thought I'd write about it just in case someone else might relate or find it encouraging.A lot of people are surprised to hear that I have only been painting since 2011. Well, it's true . I had coloured a few line arts here and there before that, but I never really tried at painting. I was dabbling and just slapping on colour, not bothering to figure out the programs or anything. Because I truly didn't believe I could do it. Backing up a bit, I'm someone who was a traditional artist. I have been drawing with pencils and paper since I was just a little tyke. Naturally, I wanted everything to do with art in school. :iconhandsomeonionplz:And that's where this little tale turns dark and mildly depressing :icon0inuscreamplz:I had this teacher, in my very first

Correcting a name and identityIt was a Winter's afternoon back in 2007 when I gazed at deviantArt for the very first time. I decided to create an account, because hey - why not? I enjoyed creating art, but never did I think it would take me this far. So at the spur of the moment without giving it too much thought, I named myself uniqueLegend.…And a mistake that haunted me for years was made.The name "unique" was something that made me slightly cringe whenever I looked at it. In some ways it made me feel like I was someone who enjoyed standing on a pedestal above everyone else. It does not represent me. Just after I created my deviantArt account, I abandoned it for almost two years.For years on end I had problems accepting the name. And for years on end I had constant thoughts of deleting my account and starting anew. But I was given several Daily Deviations and it felt like it was too late to start again. My artworks were starting to spread on other sites, and my name was being indented. I wanted to accep

Telling our stories through art featuresIf someone told you that you had to find the 5-7 pieces of art on dA that best represent you, could you do it? What do your favorite works of art say about you? Have you ever thought about it?I'm featuring 7 deviations that blow me away, that I turn to for my own inspiration. Each one tells a story to which I can relate. A piece of my own story is echoed in each image.What's your story through art? Create a journal with 5-7 of your favorite deviations that best represent you, and link me!I love rain. I love the way it washes away sorrow and leaves your soul open for the sunlight.This image reminds me of me because of the feeling of pain, of being hit with a constant barrage of garbage in my life that I don't need or deserve. You can avoid a lot of it, but sometimes it comes up and strikes you on the chin, reminding you to pay your dues.Beautiful dress, beautiful hair.
