help corner: EmoticonsWelcome to the help corner:Emoticons. If you have any questions about anything Emoticon related go ahead and send me a note. Not all questions have to be serious, I am looking forward to all kind of questions ;D The questions will be answered in the next edition of the help corner. I had the idea for this News article when I recently went through the Tutorial list of Emotication. I normally send deviants to Emotication when they need help to create Emoticons. Now that I went through the list I noticed that many tutorials aren't helpful at all. It is "just" a list with very good but also very bad tutorials.In the first edition of the help corner I want to share tutorials with you that I find helpful. These don't necessarily reflect my preferences in the emoticon creation process Let me first tell you something about different shadings. Every Emoticonist has different preferenc

Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. futureI am proud to present you my first "official" Emoticon Contest. At first I want to tell you something about the theme: As you have read the theme is past vs. present vs. future, this means your entry has to include something from the past, present and future. The time isn't set, this means that the past could be just 1 day ago or 100 years ago it's the same with the future. For example: you could display how the emotes have lived in the past how they are living now and how they could live in the future.Be creative and surprise me with your imagination The Contest is divided into 2 Categories: The first Category will be for deviants who would like to work alone. And the second category is for deviants who want to work with somebody (a collaboration category ;D) 2 deviants can work together.But you could also enter in both categories! Below you can find the rules of each category and what you have to keep in mind.Deadline:start d

January 2012 EMTC! + 22 Entries! + 1 DAYS LEFT!! Two legs attached, only four more to go! There will be pictures before this day is over. And we are only 3 away from my 25 mark. New prize added! A few points...and a small plushie! And...if we can manage 25 ENTRIES this month....I might be tempted to offer yarn creations for future contests as well. TIMEI admit, the EMTC hasn't been getting a lot of love from me lately. Real life interceding, and all the stress and craziness of the holidays. But, with the start of the new year, things will slow down and there will be "time" to do more things. Hopefully. [:shifty:] This is suppose to be the last year and all. [Cough] Anyways, I decided this would be a good theme for the new year. Perhaps your emote finally has time to focus on some of its hobbies....or it is obsessed with clocks. M

February EMTC! + 19 Entries! + CLOSED! JUDGING WI LL BEGIN SOONLY! CIRCUSHere we are, second month of the new year...and things should be calming down now, right? Wrong! My life is a circus. Crazy stuff is happening daily, with one kid climbing cat towers, the other balancing on the top of baby gates! Daily life leaves me feeling like a ringmaster most of the time. So, your challenge, should you choose to accept it, will be to create an emote and some aspect of the Big Top! Perhaps your emote helps set up the tent, or flies on the trapeze, or just enjoys feeding peanuts to an elephant. The sky is the limit!...or at least the roof of the tent. Theme suggested by pumacatrun2. Judge(s):SparklyDestMerelyCubedotohime0394RicsmondRules Only new submissions for this. The emote must be submitted after the theme has been announced.
Celebrating Diversity #1Welcome to this new series of Art Features! Even tho most of you are aware of the many many galleries and categories here on dA, I think most of us move in a sort of "comfort zone" between Galleries, Channels or Groups that provide us with a constant flow of new art. And sometimes we forget all the other great artforms, styles and media that are out of our "comfort zone". And today I want to step out of that warm and cuddly place and feature some awesome works from places on dA I don't usually visit! Since this is the first entry, I thought I should explain it a bit more, so that is why there is more text in this article The topic of celebrating diversity is something that I really want to cherish. I am guilty of not fully
