Contest!! - The Beast WithinHello everybody !! I've been mulling over making a contest or a while now. The theme of the contest in particular was an extremely hard choice. But today I present you the result of my months long brainstormingContest!! - The Beast Within by zummerfish
Theme: The Beast Within
Have you ever wondered about hidden parts of your inner self? Have you ever wondered what kind of primitive traits each of us harbours or suppresses? What kind of animal instinct makes us act this or that way? What animal would we embody? These pieces of the unconscious are part of everyone, from saints to jerks. Moreover, the animal metaphor has found its way through ages up to present day. Its persistence only proves its viability.
What I propose here is to create an artwork featuring an anthropomorphous character - a character that would reflect your (or of a person you are familiar with) inner beast essence. What kind of setting? It's up to you. You can show a moment of tr
Some things we should talk aboutThis journal is here to highlight, debug and bust some myths for you all of stuff that goes on ALL the time, and is in part spurred by some recent events that leave me somewhat baffled and perplexed over some of the behavior we've been recently seeing across the DA communities, particularly Stock & Resources, and Photomanip since we work so closely together (and its apparently time I wrote a new wall of text to you all.)Some things we should talk about by Elandria
Every community has them. Those constant "issues" that make people angry and frustrated. Sometimes they can be easily solved with a little effort, and other times something just snaps and causes reactions that are far and away over the top. Here are some of our top faves.
Its time for everyone to take a nice soothing deep breath, its a long one!
There will be a test at the end.
OMG WHY DID YOU SEND YOUR REPLY TO PirateLotus-Stock and CelticStrm-Stock AS WELL??
Hello, welcome to TEAM Stock and Resources!

How to stay MotivatedHow to stay Motivated.How to stay Motivated by Robotpencil
I’m writing this article for the type of people who say that just can’t find motivation to:
Make a portfolio
Finish a painting
Work on their personal project
I got three tips I’m about to write, and it’s just advice and things that I found useful for myself. If you are capable to do any of these things you should definitely try them.
Fear. Get rid of it. If you are fearful of the outcome it will unmotivate you immediately. Just finish whatever it is and think about how you can improve after. If you can’t see what you need to improve ask someone else to tell you. There is always room to improve, and if you go into a critique with an open mind you will grow exponentially.
Think of it like this. If you were running one lap, and half way through you stopped because you were afraid you were going to throw up or pass out, you will never really know how fast you can run that lap. You didn’t push yours
If you are interested in a video critique, please note me with three deviations of yours to choose from (so I can choose the one I have the most to say about).
I cannot guarantee you will actually receive a critique and there will be no set schedule because my daily life tends to wreck any plans of doing stuff like this on a regular basis. Also please note that I will not be putting you on an ordered list (but on an unordered one) meaning I will critique what feels like a good idea instead of going by who was first. I hope you will understand that.
Of Copyright & Premades
is an article that strives to explain what copyright means, who it protects and that simply putting work into something will not make using something without permission okay.
Know your Basics - article series:
A series of articles that try to explain some basics in art that you may or may not have heard of before but didn't know what to do with them. All of them are written especially for photo- manipulators, but the principles should hold true in any genre.

--> Know your basics - Composition <--
