It’s no secret that DeviantArt is a complicated site.  Have you ever invited a friend to DeviantArt, only to have them ask a bunch of questions about how to get started?  Or have you ever spoken with a fellow deviant about a feature you use daily, only to learn they didn't know that feature existed?  It’s our aim to make a new deviant's first experience as inspiring and welcoming as those who have made this community their home.  We’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how to make DeviantAr

Celebrate DeviantArt's 15th Birthday!
As DeviantArt enters its 15th year on the Internet, we want to take a moment before blowing out our candles to thank the community for allowing us the honor of hosting the site that you call your home for art.

While many online communities have come and gone during the last decade and a half, DeviantArt remains because of our passionate and committed community. In that time, we've celebrated many milestones, and it became apparent we were in need of a place to share our victories and our challenges. And since we want to move toward more complete transparency with the community, what better time to also showcas

Is Reference Bad?
I feel like I've addressed this before at some point, in some other journal, but I find myself either discussing this with people a lot, or coming across people who on their work proudly claim to have "used no reference."
The biggest problem, and misconception, regarding references is that people feel like it's cheating or that it somehow cheapens their work. While I can understand the sense of accomplishment coming from using no reference to finish a painting or drawing, people who consistently do it are only hurting themselves in the long run. So in short, no, reference isn't bad.

Hi! I'm Emmy. I am just learning basics on drawing, and I am not anything to brag about yet. I am getting quite good at it though, so that's a plus. Requests are open if you are my friend. Commissions are open. Art trades are always open and welcome. If you need anyone at all to talk to just message me I can talk to you. I'm gay and I have a beautiful girlfiend named Lilly and I love her so much. My favourite bands are My Chemical Romance, Bullet For My Valentine, Asking Alexandria, Get Scared, and Dirty Heads. Yeah, my best friend is Logan or DJund3ad so go fav him and give him a llama badge!
