Featured Product Shots!
Have you ever wondered what the products in our Shop actually look like? Dumb question, of course you did.

We finally have a range of quality photos of our various print and merchandise products to give you an idea of them with our deviant artists' work printed on them.

Photo credits go to our very own %achfoo and %fangedfem.

Photo Prints

Images are printed on Fujicolor® Crystal Archive II paper which uses a silver halide process and RA4 chemistry, mimicking the traditional analog printing process. Instead of negatives, our digital mini-labs use lasers to expose the paper and produce prints that rival and even surpass those originatin

Manip Tips and Tricks #4: MelGama
Name: MelGama
Tools of the Trade: Photoshop CS2, Stock, brushes, VUE, PaintShop, AutoFX, Wacon tablet.
Likes to use: I love nude art and I love to make angels and fairies. We have a lot of special stock here in DA but some of them are more than special for me (and some are not stock) like gerhardt flaviacabral Elandria lockstock Teeslpscreations etc.
I like to make my own backgrounds. My husband is an amateur photographer and works with me. Therefore I love and brushes (some of them made by myself, others from DA like spiritsighs or from Renderosity).
Examples of her work:

MelGama’s tips and tricks:
1.- The model:
Most times I start with the model that inspires me. I look at the image and imagine something that can occur in that moment. It depends on my mood (if I’m happy or not) but I try to expre

The Slightly Different Art Contest
DeviantART is a place for any kind of artists. If you are browsing the galleries you'll find a great number of fascinating art in each category. And whenever you visit a talented artist's page you mostly will find that he or she is an expert in one or two art categories. I am looking for talented many-sided artists familiar with different styles, medias, techniques and tools. I myself am a "Deviant of many Talents", I do quite different art works and designs.
If you think you are a skilled many-talented artist please send me the links to some of your best works (up to five) showing a great variety in a note with the subject "Many-sided Artist". You can post art and design of any kind.
The artists I deem best will take part in a poll open to the public. The winner gets a 6 month subscription, a CSS journal design made by me and a feature in my journal with nine of their best works.
There is no deadline yet. I am looking forw

'You have only ONE CHANCE'
"You have only ONE CHANCE" - photomanipulatition challenge!!
The rules are simple.
1.) A person can only enter one deviation (hence the name of the contest).
2.) The must use one piece of my stock, and three other stock resources, whether it be images, brushes or textures.
3.) You must abide by the rules of each stock holder- failure to do so will result in immediate disqualification.
4.) All forms are allowed (dark, fantasy, people) - just no pornographic images, or any images that break the rules of other stock holders- this will result in automatic disqualification!!
5.) Have FUN!  :D
I will continue to update my stock account...
The contest ends on the Dec. 23...   Because of the holidays, and the fact that I will be checking every entry, results will not be posted until the New Year.  I have three judges that will remain nameless until the end of the contest.  I have chosen to do this because I have seen too many contest corrupted by br

I haven't created any art for more than 2 years. I really want to get back into it but I don't know where to start.
Hello! I've been doing mostly traditional art lately, and nothing I would really post on here. I took a couple of online drawing courses and they are much more stylized and not realistic faces. I want to get more into collage making and I have really been enjoying the entries from CollageChallengers , Gluefingers , The-Art-Of-Collage and AlteredMixedCollages

so to show my appreciation, here are some wonderful collage features!
