Another Fashion PhotoshootToday I went on my second fashion photoshoot!
The model was an old friend, and I think she looks a bit like a crossover of Lana Del Rey and Jennifer Lawrence, which is awesome. I was really surprised at how good she was at modelling, and how natural she was in front of the camera - she's done some cosplay before and I think she's had a little fashion experience, but not much.
The day was really hot and we shot in the city. We spent ages, possibly almost half our time together, looking for a location which both looked good and didn't have many people around Once we found a location though, we took a few photos, and moved to a different location, which wasn't too hard to find. I think we shot in a total of about three or four locations. The sun provided a little bit of a problem in terms of both photography and comfort, and by the time we finished we were really hot (I had to wear long sleeves to protect myself from sunburn additional to that I'd received a few days ago ).

Giveaways NEED to STOP!Giveaways on deviantART need to stop! They're having a number of detrimental effects on the community at large. Within this article, I aim to discuss this problem, as well as provide alternatives for giveaways. I'll begin by outlining what a giveaway is, both in the real world and on deviantART; explain why giveaways are simply not for deviantART; illustrate my points with real-world examples; and then go into detail on what exactly the aforementioned detrimental effects are. Additionally, I will counteract a number of excuses people use for holding and entering giveaways; as well as offer alternatives to giveaways for both parties.
I know the article is quite long, but this is an issue which myself and a growing number of other community members feel to be important. But I promise, it doesn't actually take too long to read once you get going!
If you agree with my points in this article, or even simply find the debate interesting, I would appreciate
How to Make a Good Profile PageHow to Make a Good Profile Page
Learn some helpful tips to ensure your profile page is appealing to the masses!
written by `miontre for Community Week in %projecteducate.
Quite simply, the way you present yourself is important. People make decisions about other people based on the way they present themselves. You know this is true because you do it yourself. There is no shame in this, because it's natural human behavior: we simply do not have the time to make decisions about each and every person we encounter from scratch, so we have to make some decisions based on how they present themselves. One such judgments made in this way is how worthwhile a person is - through this, we don't learn about a personality, but rather how long we are going to hold interest in this person.
If there's one thing which makes me uninterested in a person's profile, resulting in my immediate departure, it's when there's too much junk and mess on there - a result of careless presentation. :l

projecteducate needs writers! Yes, that's you!%projecteducate needs writers!
Yes, we're looking at you!
Our goal at %projecteducate is to provide the deviantART community, and even the internet at large, with a wealthy collection of valuable educational material. We want to create a group which people know they can come to to find tutorials and other informational articles on a broad range of subjects for free.
Of course, in order to provide these tutorials, we need people to write them! This is where you come in. If you have any sort of skill which you'd like to share, we want to hear from you. This can be anything art-related or deviantART-related. You don't have to be a professional or an expert - as long as you have something to share, your knowledge is valuable!
We're looking for people to get involved by contributing to our Community Weeks in order to share their knowledge. These happen every few months, and are a chance for members of the deviantART community to write
Slenderman caught on camera? ... :/YEsterday my grandmother found her old film camera in her basement!! She had about 11 shots of black + white film left in it too. She knows that I've been keen to take some film photos for a long time, so she called me up and invited me over. We both went out with the camera and I was really excited. She lives near a forest walk and we both thought it would be a good place to take some photos. It was the first time I've ever used a film camera, and an old one at that!!! She instructed me on how to use the camera, get the right exposures etc etc since it's fully manual. She let me take 7 photos and she took the remaning few.. we got home and my grandad developed the photos in their darkroom.
I went this morning to see how the photos had turned out. I first got them and was prety pleased with the results - they weren't amazing quality as i'm new to manual film photography - but that's what i liked about them. I kept looking at the photos, because i loved them so much, and i was so excite
Successful Stamps - How ToSuccessful Stamps
Learn how to command the masses through well thought-out stamps.
written by `miontre for Community Week in %projecteducate
Stamps are small (usually 99 x 56 px) images used on deviantART to express an opinion, share an interest, give personal facts, show support for something, or anything similar. Stamps are usually funny, but many can be controversial or serious too. By using the thumbcode, deviants can paste stamps onto their profiles or into their journals where it serves the same purpose as the creator of the stamp initially made it to.
Stamps can become quite popular quite quickly, and even after their peak continue to see comments and favourites coming in due to their viral nature (people share them which leads other people to see them). Many deviants find their stamps taking the top spots in their gallery's popularity ranking!
However, if they aren't made well, stamps won't be s

PE: Contrast in Digital ArtThis article aims to introduce different kinds of ‘contrast’ in digital art, although most of the following points can also be applied to other media as well.
(noun) - Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
1. Colours and Brightness
One of the first things to come to mind when we think of ‘contrast’ are colours contrasting with each other.
(The colours labelled as 'primary' are the primary colours in the RGB colour model. Primary colours of the CMYK colour model are cyan, magenta and yellow.)

Stuck The car sputtered and shook as it came to an almost silent stop. The engine had gone silent as the horn beeped loudly through the dark night. The orange gas light blinked mockingly at the woman behind the wheel. It was making fun of her; she knew it was making fun of her. Grabbing the black cellular phone on the passenger seat, she looked at it with full intention of calling somebody to come help her.
“Oh, what the hell?!”
The “no service” sign was mocking her at the same exact time. The horn beeped loudly as she slammed her head against it once again. The day was out to get her in general. She had arrived at all her classes late, and her son was sick with the flu. The babysitter was able to watch him as she went to her late night classes. Giving a heavy sigh, she lifted her head off the wheel to look out the window. Drops of water pooled on the windshield as rain started to fall in a pitter-patter pattern. She didn’t quite understand the message th
