Every century in our world holds different degree of beauty, even human's interpretation of beauty changes along the course of time. Artists, photographers and writers here in deviantArt have displayed marvelous works depicting their interpretation of beautiful wonders - The elegance of a woman, the solitude of an emerald forest and even the beauty of falling in love. Yes, beauty is a big subset for all things. That is why we

Interview with *B-AGT
Meet Fan-Artist of February 2013!
Tell us about yourself and you only been here for a whole year now, what is your biggest (and proudest) accomplishment? Like a time when you felt like you were right on top of the world
I’ve been drawing since I was little. I kept it as a hobby and draw stuff I like from time to time. Since I love Dragonball, basketball, I started drawing a lot sketches related to these subjects with traditional medium and kept it up for years. At first I just look at other artist's work to get inspired, now I really like the deviantART community and appreciate what I can learn from the community.
Well, I never felt like on top of the world^^, but I guess the biggest accomplishment for me is when others told me that I inspire and motivate them to become better.
What does "Art" mean to YOU? What about "Fan Art"?

How to find ART THEFT and GOSSIPS about yourselfHi cuties !!<333 :iconrightneplz:
I noticed that some people are copying my "cuties" line, but it's not like I can patent words or something ;A; so, wherever you see this word, just remember I started using it first! :iconpandarunplz:
First of all, don't forget to add me on LINE PLAY!! I've been adding some wips and random artwork there ;w; My username is Sayuurin. Ah, and please come to my room and provide me some gems when you're not busy :iconfangasmingplz: there are still some things I want to buy, but I don't have much time to play ;;;;
Now for the main purpose of this journal! I'm gonna teach you how to find things that others say about you on the internet ;v;
dA has been a little hard to be in these days because of mean gossips, art theft, which is rarely punished, and many other reasons ;^; so I'm sharing this with you because I think it's your right to know when people are saying things about you or simply stealing your art. I know better than anyone how the truth can surpr

Challenge 6 - Angel/Evil - Top 5Congrats:
Sorry for making you wait for too long. This challenge doesn't have much entries like last challenge but more quality entries. That makes me so happy it means somehow we are improving. Isn't it cool?
Now I would love to announce 5 top entries here:
:iconsirocco-rc: - :iconmollus: - :iconlu--24: - :iconYun-Afezeria: - :iconAeylan:
Trust me, I want to have top 10, not only 5 at this time so bad cause there are some very nice other entries too. That's why it takes me more than a week to choose top 5 ;^;
And for peoples who couldn't make it this time, please don't be upset. As the point of this challenge is not for winning but for improving and it's like a motivation for us to draw/work more on art .
Please never stop working and improving your skills. Well, I have to back to practicing more now too, ^^
Please don't forget to drop all loves for out wonderful entries: http://hellobaby.devianta
Wanna become a professional artist?You better WORKHello everyone~
I decided to start this discussion because it seems to be unknown yet a very wanted discussion among many artists. A long long time ago I made a poll asking my watchers if they wanted to become a professional artists someday (and this poll is on my profile again, please go there to give it your vote ^^) and 45% of my watchers said they wanted to become professionals someday and they would do their best to achieve that. I will tell you guys who are these professional guys, about notions of market and how to be noticed as well.
First off, I'll start telling you guys about something you've probably thought of in your artist life.
Our world has now 7 billion people. That's a lot, right? Now let's suppose that 1% of that population decides to dedicate their hobbies for painting and drawing (I cannot say "art" because art is pretty general, it involves music, cinema, etc) and 1% out of 7 billion is still a lot right? Now let's suppose that 10% (that is a very optimistic previ
