PE: Fan Art vs Original ArtFan Art vs. Manga & Anime: The differencesMany people have come to me in the past with questions regarding whether their work qualified as Manga & Anime or Fan Art, same happened with many Daily Deviations that were placed in the M&A gallery when they should have been submitted to the Fan Art Gallery, oops!Do you have doubts regarding the submission process? Wonder no more, we'll unveil all the mysteries surrounding the categories! :iconokie2plz: The basicsFan art includes those artworks that are based on or contain material such as characters, settings, concepts or universes in general that are copyrighted to someone else other than the artist creating said Fan artwork.Manga and Anime art, on the other hand, is home for all the artworks that artists have created from scratch and are not related to any preexisting universe nor contain any copyrighted material.
Literary Terminology GuideLit Basics WeekThis will be a straightforward article that lists some basic literary terms (in alphabetical order) that can be found in, well, literary works. You could use some of these terms to write a spectacular poem or prose piece about cake.Before we get started, head on over to this other PE article that lists a BUNCH of Poetry Terms and Techniques.Cake:An item of soft, sweet food made from a mixture of flour, shortening, eggs, sugar, and other ingredients, baked and often decorated.

Artists beware! Thieves trying to steal passwordsEvery once in a while i get someone trying to hack into my facebook or deviantart. Lately someone sent me a link to a fake tumblr log in screen trying to steal my tumblr password. that person is obsidianwingsofmidnight.tumblr.comYes, i am making this public so that people know what kind of person obsidianwingsofmidnight is and be aware of messages from him/her.this person claims they were hacked as well. That might or might not be true, either way i don't want to go hunting them down, just be careful of ANYONE sending you links, especially people you never talked to before.A note for every deviant out there.HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM PASSWORD THIEVES:1. Start out by having a very strong password. Having passwords that have numbers and symbols (*!@#$%) is a great way to start, but a sure way of having a strong password is just having a very long one. I saw an article where it said that nothing beats a long password, So it's better to have a long passw

Did You Know - BlockingBlockingWhile many people tend to report other deviants they don't get along with or they feel harassed by to the HelpDesk right away, your first action should always be blocking.Whatever reason you have to report someone, by blocking you avoid any further communication with certain deviants.This action is immediate, as you don't have to wait for any staff member to take action and you can just enjoy your dA experience without that blocked deviant.Personal reasons like disagreeing on a topic, not liking someone or similar won't end with a ban of that other deviant.Contacting the HelpDesk just adds to the queue of tickets unnecessarily and makes it more time consuming to focus on important reports. Only in case of serious harassment you should contact the HelpDesk.If you are blocking someone it's an action in both directions. That means that not only the other person gets blocked from you, but you are automatically blocked for them as well.The fol

Artists Toolbox: Colored PencilsColored pencils are widely used as a fun and readily available art tool. I'm sure most if not all of us have tried our hand at colored pencils, even if it was only while we were children. While colored pencils may not be as respected as paints such as oil, acrylic or watercolors, colored pencils shouldn't be under-estimated in the impact they can and do have on the art world. Different Types of Colored PencilsWax-BasedWax based colored pencils are probably the most common and readily available types of colored pencils on the market. As with any type of colored pencil, these come in varying qualities and prices. Oil-BasedOil based colored pencils in my experience are not as easy to find unless you are shopping online or in an art store. These colored pencils are excellent if you are planing on coloring on wood or another similar surface. Blending oil based colored pencils ca
