Give me five!I feel like doing another feature. I'm ill, I missed the phone call from the doctors with test results so I need distracting until they open on Monday!
SO: This requires some searching I would like:
5 links to deviations that are related to the seasons or a particular season. One of these can be one of your own deviations.
I will feature the ones I like the most and everyone who contributes will be credited in the journal
Oh my wooly wordSo I've started crocheting. `joannastar made Astrid an amazing blanket but it's too small to wrap her in now (sob) so I am attempting to make a big one that we can all snuggle under So far I've made 4 of these squares:
So... a fair way to go. I use crochet as a mechanical, completely non creative task to give my brain a break after drawing etc. That's not to say crochet isn't creative - anyone who's ever stumbled across `UnicornReality's gallery could tell you it is - but for me, following a pattern to do a load of squares, not so much. And I love it.
Here is some amazing creative crochet to show you how fantastic it is <3

Who likes drawing Dr Who porn?There's a rule. If it exists, there's porn of it.
There is no porn of The Face of Boe - at least not that I can find. Why!? He's a giant face with a giant tongue and tentacles - HOW HAS THAT NOT BEEN RUINED FOREVER!?
So I demand badly drawn FoB porny fanart. Obviously don't upload it to DA, that would be silly, but link me to it because it needs to exist damnit!
Oh, look, a new year...... and I saw it in with a snoring baby snotting in my armpit. I am so rock and roll.
Here is my life in four photos:
Also I went to see `UnicornReality at the weekend. We had carvery, I made inappropriate cancer jokes... in front of a rather shocked waiter. I laughed until I cried, everyone else despaired of me. Total Miranda moment.
Oh look, some features. Recent faves and suchlike.

And :iconathos-of-light: wins at life for this suggestion:
Andrew, you have EXCELLENT taste in socks.
Give me 5I want to find some new art, do some journal features, generally be the art pimp I used to be.
So, link me to 5 pieces of art. They must all be from different artists, one of which may be yourself. Any gallery. The only stipulation is that you must love them, really love them.
Devious SillinessOh look, there's lots of me in Fiona's deviousness interview http://thiefoworld.deviantart.com/journal/Deviousness-Award-Interview-with-UnicornReality-343502400 :'D
I am so old.
Show me your n00bs!So. I've pretty much been afk for the last year. A LOT of new artists have joined DA in that year. That's a huge amount of awesome art I haven't seen!
Is there anyone you think I've missed out on? Link me babeh!
It's a bit dusty in here...Lawks it's been a while. I haven't logged in for ages and I seriously miss DA. I miss being in a community that isn't parenting-centric. Most of all, I miss YOU.
So what's been going on? Life. I've been supply teaching, which for those not in the know, means I get to cover classes in all different schools when teachers are off sick. Some days I get a really good school and have an awesome day. Some days I get a really difficult school, shout until my voice disappears and crawl home with a tension headache. Astrid's been ill for about 6 weeks, so when I'm not at work I have a frustrated, grumpy toddler stuck to me.
Yes, toddler. She's almost 13 months D: She can show you her tummy, do Incy Wincy Spider and tell you to "gizza kiss" :') She's not walking yet - why walk when you can crawl like lightening and have a mother to cart you around?
Astrid's extreme rage face. I laughed until I cried. And then vomited.

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

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.
✐ 1. Communication and flexibility
This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio
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.)

Photography is wandering in the Universe"Photography is wandering in the Universe by yourself", Sergio Larraine
Following is a beautiful letter written by Sergio Larrain in 1982 to his nephew, who had previously asked Larrain where to begin to become a photographer.
First and foremost, you have to have a camera that fits you well, one that you like, because it’s about feeling comfortable with what you have in your hands: the equipment is key to any profession, and it should have nothing more than the strictly necessary features. Secondly, get yourself an enlarger, the easiest and most useful you can find (the smallest manufactured by LEITZ is the best for the 35mm format, it will last your whole lifetime).
The game is going on an adventure, like a sailor boat: drop the sails. Go to Valparaiso or Chiloè, be in the street all day long, wander and wander in unknown places, sit under a tree when you’re tired, buy a banana
