To artists who want to offer commissions.I would like to address something I have been seeing as of late here and on other sites. Artists who are asking if someone would commission them if they were to offer commissions and if so, how much should they charge or how much are they willing to pay?
I say this with a real heart to all artists, but that is a foolish line of questions.
Really. I have been there. I even did those myself. But look at it from the side of a potential buyer.
1: Would you even commission me?
Can you imagine if a doctor were to say that? If I were to open an office would you even come to me? That makes the doctor feel like a failure. Like he has so little faith in his ability to do his job he is afraid to do it. So he has to ask a thousand people IF he were to open an office would ANYONE come? Would you? Or would you want a doctor who just opens it and does his job and believes in his ability to treat you?
Same with an artist. You sound like you have no f
Group Update #H1N1: Updated FAQ and Clarification.:icondeirdre-diuran: said: :iconsaysplz:"Could we get the Rules and FAQ updated with the recent submission details and changes, and a clearer rule on frequency of submissions (how many per folder per day/week/month per person)?
Much appreciated "
:iconslambox: :saysplz: Well, I think that's a good idea. While my previous post gave a general overview of what to expect; http://allartworld.deviantart.com/journal/Group-Update-69-Your-Feedback-374672102 , it wasn't really CLEAR about what limits exactly are in place.
This post is.
Most folders marked "Best of" have limits of 2 submissions a day- 2 deviations a week, which are quality checked. So CHOOSE WISELY, even if BOTH are declined, your limit is still up until next week.
The June 2013 folder allows you to choose 3 deviations a day and submit them.
The Beginner art folder has 2 a day to cut down on spam, and the art dump has 5 a day.
This group has standards. While we welcome all artists, certain things ju

New poll hereCLOSED! As soon as I will open another poll.. I apologize to all the participants, but I received a lot of complaints, because some participants are asking for votes to their watchers and to other deviants via note, via journal and via poll, and many deviants think it's not fair, and they are right, so I am obliged to close the poll and open another soon. SORRY!

Street Photographers Caught in the Act
No success by PatrickMonnier

Ten Macro Photography TipsMacro photography is photography magnified. It is generally recognized as “macro” when you are increasing the size of an object in your picture from about half life-size, as represented on the image sensor, to five times life-size. Here are some top tips for capturing great Macro Photography. If you have any to add please leave them in the comments below the article!
1) Lens choice...
Many lens choices have that very tempting 'Macro setting' on them which supposedly allows your camera to magically transform itself into the ability to be a complete perfect macro lens. It works sometimes! Depending on your camera. However if you want to capture true Macro photography then you need a true Macro Lens. What Digital Camera? gives readers some advice on which lens to choose and
CSS Tricks: Journal break-downThis has been done before by many others I don't want to step on anyone's toes, I just wanted to give this a go myself
If you still write CSS NOT using gruze … stop that! Start using gruze. Just do it!
There are a few "hacks" that you will need to make it work totally under your control, but there's always help with those
Well, here comes help with those hacks (I gotta give ginkgografix credit for some of it, go hug her! That's an order )
At the end of this CSS Trick I will provide you with a template, that I use myself, as a base for creating new skins. It will only contain the basic classes of the journal deviation, from which it is made up of, the basic HTML, without any content.
Now, I know you will say: but that is not the default skin! That is not how journals without CSS look like! And you are right. But. There is always a but. But the default journal skin for coders is not the same as an unsk
Character CreationWhen it comes to designing your character, please be serious about it. Put your best efforts into creating your character and bring them to life. When submitting your application, you will be judged by your art skills and how well the application has been filled out.
This character creation journal is rather lengthy as are some of the other journals that are important to the World Train’s development. If you are unable to sit through this, then the World Train may not be for you.
Choosing a Race:
Characters can be from any dimension or world. We encourage people to create characters that are not from earth and have a wide variety of styles and cultures. If they are not human, they will not be from ‘Earth’. Or at least, the earth we are living on.
The train works as a translator to make communication possible between characters. So, characters will be able to understand each other whether or not they want to.
Human: Humans are required to have s

Sleeper CarsEveryone needs a place to sleep for the night, and luckily for you the World Train can accommodate those needs. Each room can hold up to two people and are completely sound proof to ensure absolute privacy. There are three separate sleeper cars that are all connected to the train, each uniquely built to suit residents of varying visages! Be forewarned though. Some rooms may have a few kinks in them.
Click any name to see the relevant WT application!
If your character loves electronics and anything futuristic, then this is the car for them. The Electric car has the sleekest design and is the most technologically advanced car out of the three. This car typically houses those from highly advanced civilizations, but sometimes those from more medieval realms find the electric car to be an interesting experience they would like to try out. Just don't stick a fork into the electric sockets!

Project-Name-Origins Contest((Please note this is not an official AA4E contest, ours is coming soon!))
Hey, guys! Aikou here~ I've found a contest here on dA that I think needs some more recognition! I'm most likely going to be entering myself, so please check it out!
Hello and welcome to our first "Project-name-origins" (PNO) contest!
Some time ago we hit our
1 Year anniversary
and so we've decided to celebrate it with an art contest with cash prizes!
Don’t worry, you don’t need to be an artist to participate because we chose a simple PNO related theme for the contest.
Our judges will be looking for the feeling and meaning behind your submissions, rather than the artistic quality of the image.
What do I have to do to participate in the contest?
If you have an DeviantART account become a watcher so you won't miss out any updates on the contest.
You must join the Project-name-origins and add your stor

As part of projecteducate's Artisan Crafts week, I'm going to show you how simple it is to find and fold something gorgeous and to present it well to your internet audience.
With just a little inspiration and a bit of patience, ANY one of us could fold something absolutely lovely. So what are you waiting for?? Let's get folding!
1) BE INSPIRED
First of all, you need to figure out what you want to fold. You need inspiration from looking at gorgeous origami, from admiring nature and the world around, or maybe it'll just hit you like a random lightning bolt. We are super privileged to have many experienced and skilful origamists on dA, many who create their own models from scratch. From persona

GA-HQ Contest - ENDED!
The contest ends on Friday (8th November) night 12 PM
Screenshot like self drawn illustrations like the ones above are the topic of this new Game-Art-HQ art contest
Due to other projects like Link's Blacklist being ongoing now and artists being working on it or the Final Fantasy tribute, this contest starts right now and endures till wednesday the 6th November
Recreating a screenshot with the own artstyle as seen in the megaman fanarts by Pertheseus and the Street Fighter III one above is something complicated and needs time and creativity, i guess that not only the results can be some great looking and unusual illustrations of video games, but also be a true challenge for participating artists.
rules: 1 entry per artist, no strong violence, no nudity, no fetish stuff, its up to you what kind of a screenshot you use as reference and also which game is totally your choice. If
