Icons for a Good Cause - CLOSEDUpdate 04-01-2013: Project will be on hold and not accepting any more requests. I will clear the waiting list and then close the project for good.
Update of the Update: Well dang, people, the interest is so high that I'll open a few more slots, it's for a good cause after all. xD That means that there's a chance you'll have to wait a bit longer though since I'll have more to work through.
Update 02-27-2013: The project is open again and I will be taking orders for five more slots before closing for good. That means this is not only your last chance to participate in the project but also your last chance to get one of the chibis in my old style. As always, comment on the journal if you would like to commission an icon in order to help out; in depth guidelines below.

Gallery Makeover: Icons and Handhelds We're slowly nearing the end of this first phase of the Gallery Restructure Project which means if you would still like to give us any kind of feedback related to the Icons & Handhelds gallery structure, now's the time to do so!
Please also scroll down and see which points have been brought up by the community and feel free to tell us what you think about them.
As recently announced by Moonbeam13 in this article deviantART will soon be undergoing a rather extensive makeover of the gallery system in order to streamline categories and simplify submissions. That will amongst others include the removal of dead categories, merging where it makes sense or simply a complete restructuring of a whole root category if necessary.
Community input is highly important for this so with this journal you have the opportunity to specifically give feedback concerning the Icons

dAr CR Update November 2013dAr News

There is still the news article about the dA code copyright thing i have to do, but i also want to publish a few more "how to:.." articles during the next time. If you have something you want me to cover (just needs to be dA related) let me know!

8 Hour Finds FeatureThe way I find a lot of the people I follow is by looking through the most popular 8 hours in the digital art drawing section. Here is some of the stuff I've seen today that I think is quite fantastic and deserves to have a look at before it disappears into the depths of DA.

More Help For More ArtistsI'm always trying to help fellow artists out, because I understand how nerve-wracking being an artist can be.
We all suffer from art block: lack of inspiration, and ideas.
We all know what it's like to draw something, and discard it and get frustrated with it because it looks "terrible" and hasn't turned out like you had wished for.
Sometimes you have an idea in your head, but to put it down just right will never happen.
You may just need a good kick of this so called "inspiration" to get you going again!
Today, I came across some great tutorials, some that I will definitely use, and you should too.
If you're afraid of trying something new, like me, please look here:
And for people who struggle with backgrounds like I do as well:
Last but not least, photo references ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS. Take a look at this tutorial to see what I mean!
These are just some of the ones

Tell us what defines you as a person.
I think that art is the most important part of me. But not just graphics, also photography, literature or music. The last two I just admire and love. But all of them are in some way a part of me.
