Thanks + EADHey guys, first of all thank you to sugarislife28, SparklyDest and Minato-Kushina for sending me valentine cards Then I wanted to announce that I won't be hosting the Emoticon Appreciation day this year. If anybody is interested please write it in the comments, if more than one deviant is interested then we will have to figure out who hosts it or if they could host it together.

My deviantART StoryIt all started when I was searching for wallpapers in 2005, I joined the Site to be able to Fav the deviations since I usually searched for them in school. I wasn't an Artist and also not really interested in Art, I was more interested in Cars. After a while I discovered more and more of deviantArt and my interest in Art started to grow, I started to draw portraits and then I discovered the Emoticon Community and I learned how to create Emoticons. This was the time when I started to be active on dA and participated in the Community. I met many incredible deviants in that time, sadly many of them aren't really active anymore. :c But the most important part of my deviantArt story is meeting the love of my life. We had the first interaction in 2008 after I received my first DD for one of my Emotes. Our friendship grew over time and we already wanted to meet each other some years ago, but it somehow didn't happen. It was different t

Were the gods unhappy with us? Were these heavenly messages indicating the End of Days had arrived? Emperors and kings often felt a familial connection with the Sun, and so feared its temporary withdrawal from the sky to be a warning of its unhappiness with royal actions. Desp

Deviousness - May 2015In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.Introducing theCHAMBA:iconthechamba:My name is Jeffrey Cruz and I'm a Melbourne-based Comic book Artist that goes under the pen-name of 'Chamba'. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, back when I would copy images of Transformers from the back of the toy packaging. That year, my Love for creating art was born.During my first year of University back in 2003, I was introduced to DeviantArt as part of class task to join an 'online community', something that was very foreign to me. Being part of DeviantArt had allowed me to open up my eyes to the variety of styles that existed beyond my own backyard and of the people who created such works. Throughout the years I've not only made life-long fr

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblinDo 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. STEP 1First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
