Big news!Hi guys!I have some "Off-white" related news for you.Me and :icontanathe: have been working on Off-White for almost 6 years now. During this time our lives gradually changed, and we've acquired new responsibilities. I'm busy with creating a museum design for my major degree in architecture, and Kate works full time on the newest Witcher game. With all that keeping up with a regular update schedule became more and more challenging. Because we are still very committed to this project, we felt that we've been letting our readers down lately. We've decided it's time to make some changes. To keep the updates regular we've invited a new member to our team! Today we welcome :iconjessi-mei: as our new artist and writer!Here's a few words from her:Hey Off-White readers!You’ve probably seen me around, especially in the comment section for the past couple of years. And for some of you more experienced, long-time readers, you’ve seen me in both of the Off-White forums as both
WARNING - Please readIf you take commissions or make adopts please do not let the users Pixlett or ToxicMutagen buy from you. They will pay after a few days, BUT they will issue a credit card chargeback on the purchase. (They "share" a Paypal name/email, so I am suspicious that it is just the same person who moved accounts)I'm now in the negatives in Paypal due to the chargebacks, and sadly Paypal does NOT cover digital goods (including art) so I won't be getting this money back.They are doing this to other users/my dA friends as well.Here's just 3 of the chargebacks they sent me to show as proof. (They have spent thousands on my art, their paypal email is email@example.com)As you can see, I tried to provide evidence for one of them (still have many to go through)Anyways, as this is a clear breach of my Terms of Service, I'm reclaiming ALL of their Sushi Dogs + an adopt that they purchased made by myself and ka
My ApologiesHello all,Let me begin by first apologizing to those of you who have left me notes, comments, or questions over the past few weeks. I have been absent for DA for an extended period of time due to real life priorities, and the stress doesn't look as though it is about to relent. While I will try to get back on top of my deviations and replies here, it will be slow-going and I can't promise to be around regularly.As well as rushing to meet deadlines for my animation, I have also been organizing and setting up the LASALLE Show with my classmates, and as class representative for 2D animation I have been required to make a daily appearance at my college. The LASALLE Show doubles as a showcase to display the best works amongst the different faculties of the college, as well as being a graduation show for those of us in the 3rd year, which I am. Honour Amongst Thieves has received a special display right at the entrance to the animation gallery, and I was occupied for the bett
AnyaHey everybody. I figured I'd make a post about what happened week before last.Some of you may be aware that I kept a Russian Domesticated Fox as a pet. Her name was Anya and I posted a few photos on here of her, but mainly on her Facebook Page that i made for her and made videos with her that we put on her Youttube channel.I have waited a little while to post publically about this, because it's a very hard thing to come to terms with. For those of me who read my previous private post about this, I again want to thank you for your condolences and support that you provided me during this time.To everyone who has enjoyed Anyas story and videos, I must tell you now that our beloved and special Anya has passed away. She was mortally wounded by a coyote.As some of you know, Anya had an ourdoor living space constructed just for her. It was her favorite place to be in the whole world. She was never cheerier, happier or more comfortable than she was when she was in her home. She knew it was
Sucking the Fun out of Creation My Two CentsDISCLAIMER: What is written here is my opinion on an apparently touchy subject. You are free to have your own opinions on this matter but please keep negative comments to a minimum. If you should feel incited to anger from this point on, please look at this picture to calm yourself down. "Closed Species" or "Apples and Oranges" Yep those two dreaded words seem to incite all sorts of drama that makes a Shakespearean tragedy look tame by comparison. Hateful and belligerent comments spread across DA like a plaque of malicious trolls, pouncing upon unsuspecting artists. Ripping to shreds hard work, setting ablaze fun and destroying moral.My thoughts on this... CHILL I'm not sure why this is such an issue for people. Maybe some artists get over protective of their "species", maybe that's why its turned into a cluster-f*ck or madness. But I don't see why in other cases a pers
|| Read ||Far too many of today’s youth believe they are a mistake. They need to be reminded that they are not mistakes but that they are a different and new path than the one taken previously. Don’t let those who are lost lead your path for you. They will only you lead you wrongly and you will lose yourself along the way. This is your life, live it based on every little success you earn and learn from every mistake you make. Not them. Their mistakes are their own, and you are not a mistake. You are a successful example of what it means to be alive. There is no greater success than that.This life is yours. Be something — be someone you’re proud of. That's all I have to say.
Unbelieveable!Look:© art by Stanislaw ZoladzAnd this IS watercolor painting. 100% watercolor. Kthnxbye.I've been a lot in traditional art society, and just... I spotted this artwork. No, at the first it was a photograph for me. For really long time I wasn't interested to take a look deeper at that common photograph until I got bothered by loads of people to take a peek on it. That really knocked me out from chair, is not the fact it's 100% painting but it's watercolor. I've seen 100% photo looking a like acrylics, oils and really mixed medium ways of paintings but... watercolor alone? And that's from simple watercolor "squares" palette. I'm not really fan of photo-realistic paintings, I do love real life paintings with very artistic touch and with it's own original style... but for this one I have lots of "wow" for this artist to master watercolor on insane level of skill by using simple techni
Cats Commissions (Closed for now!) Now closed.The turn around wait has been changed to 30 days.Please read the entire journal.Cats are small colored doodles of your character of choice or your actual pet as a cat. Note, cats do NOT come with a background. I generally send them as a cat with a transparent background, like so: http://www.other-worldly.com/random/morsualbig.pngSometimes I post them in bundled deviations with odd color shapes in place of a background to make the overall image more interesting. The shape is not actually included in the commission. They come in a big size and a little size. The example above is about as big as they get and your 'big size' will be in that ballpark. Actual dimensions differ depending on the cat's pose.The small size is usually between 100 and 300 px wide. (Same image, resized)- $6.50 each (paypal only for now)- Payment must be in advance. I don't start working until payment is received.- I try to finish ALL
Skribble Contest: Let's Get Creative! TweetA mere eleven years ago, deviantART met its humble beginnings. Since that time, we've grown to be the world's largest online art community, but even a site as massive and established as deviantART had to start somewhere. We never forget those few small sparks that launched deviantART to be where it is today, and that's what we're celebrating during our birthday season.For this year's community event, we're embracing the idea of starting small and creating something amazing from just a few quick sketches. We've started this work for you and challenge you to finish it with the pizzazz that only the best art community in the world co

Your Point Commissions are Worth More Than That.I see this a lot. Talented digital artists will post point commission info on their profile or as a forum post, and I hardly ever see a price worth more than $2. No matter how complex the artwork they're offering.I'm not even talking about the few super-crazy-talented digital artists with the ability to sit down with a tablet and Photoshop for 12 hours and create something that looks like it belongs in a museum.I'm talking about deviants who posses the undervalued talent of drawing "pretty darn well". I'm talking about virtually every drawing-artist on dA that I've ever seen. Your people look like people. Your animals look like animals. You actually used decent shading. Your colors look nice together. You joined dA for a good reason!Super popular? Very few people are. Way better than I could do? For sure! I focus on jewelry making. I can sketch and shade simple inanimate objects, and I have a pretty good eye for color theory. That's about it. If it moves or breathes, I'm hopeless at

A New LevelAbout 14 years ago I started my comic career with Dreamwave. After that I moved onto Nelvana for a while and worked on two shows. During that I started with UDON where I still am. In 2011 I started to teach at Seneca College in Toronto.Over the years you've heard me belly ache about my mixed feelings about what I work on and what type of rhetorical acrobatics I do to justifiy it to myself. For the most part it's to pay the bills and that it's just what I do until something else comes along. I never claim that anything I work on is representory of my moral beliefs or religion for that matter nor do I try to excuse myself under the guise of some self serving excuse, it just simply is my situation.I'm happy for all the work I have and am doing and I do it as well as I possibly can. I am the sole provider for my family and I thank God for all the work that i do have and my thanks and appreciation manifests itself in my effort to try and do the best I can.A sigh of relief came with teac
About the Username Change and the Imeji CheinjiI never believed that name change would exist due to many valid reasons, but yet, they made it. Honestly, I've been wanting to change my name since long time. I'm in no ties or any desire with "Pearl" in any way which I named it when I was quite young. Also that name makes me sick sometimes- so a new name change is going to be a great, refreshing start.So, yes I do plan to change name yet my icon will remain not changed to keep people to recognize me. And here I want to write a journal about being really careful, be smart and think twice if we decide to change name: to not cause that kind of trend where "Oh I got bored with that name, lemme change onto another" and making a'la Japan's trend of changes known as imeji cheinji.Firstly, try to imagine, if there is artist (or active watcher, popular artist, active friend or even troller which you dislike etc.) which you admire is known under Crystallox2* (and you probably will notice how many people also call that person as "Crys"
