Sunset Shimmer Returns Singing in Rainbow RocksPeople have been wondering if Sunset Shimmer would ever make an appearance in Rainbow Rocks. Sunset Shimmer's Latin voice actress had posted the following tweet, validating the possibility that Sunset may not only appear in the movie, but also have a singing role as well. What we don't know, however, is whether she'll turn to good. We'll just have to wait until Fall.

Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple
Don't add too many unnecessary rules or in

Do's and don'ts for flawless interactionNot much to say about this.
Just some basic tips and tricks for flawless interaction on DeviantArt
Watch people when you honestly find them interesting.
Watch your friends, even if they don't have amazing art. It helps you stay updated with their progress.
Watch groups. They'll offer you a fine selection of art you're interested in, and will help you discover new (interesting) artists.
Check the faves of people you watch. As you like their work, you might have similar tastes in art. Checking their faves might help you find cool art.
Recommend art from people that you watch for a Daily Deviation (if good art, of course).
Uncheck all boxes when watching. There's nothing more disappointing than an empty watch.
White Knights and Why They're HarmfulThis is quite a huge/concerning topic, and I know that not all deviants share the same point of view, and I respect that. I'm sure that there are many other journals touching upon this subject, but because I personally have had very bad experiences with it, I want to inform my watchers about it myself! Hope it helps some.
So, for the past year or so I've noticed that some people saying that they specifically dislike a lot of "popular" dA artists due to the overprotective behavior of their watchers.
I personally find it very sad that people are turned off by my artwork simply because they associate my username with "[my] white knights".
There's no way I can possibly control what my fanbase does or says, and this can lead to some very awkward situations and conflicts on my end.
Don't get me wrong...I love each and every one of my watchers, in fact without you guys my artistic life would be incredibly more lackluster. I'm sure ma

5 ways to get into the creative zoneDear, deviantart fellow artists
Sometimes we tend to feel unmotivated and uninspired to do anything... but there are also those blissful moments of creativity, when inspiration strikes and time goes by unnoticed. Not getting distracted, going with the flow, so merged in the process, that there is no need to do anything else until the work gets done. But how to get in that mood more often..? Here are some ways/tips that helped me over the time.
1. Prepare your work space
Make the place you work as comfortable and useful as possible. Clean the desk from all the clutter, gather your tools in a most accessible way, organize in order to avoid mess. Set the according light, have some inspiring quotes, goals written around.
2. Avoid distractions
Turn off the internet. Or close all the tabs, you don’t need. Especially, social media sites. Don’t check the news/e-mail/mobile phone all the time. Get in the place where

[UPDATE]1,000 watchers giveaway-win points and artIMPORTANT UPDATE 26th July
So, there are two more things I want to say! First of all a little reminder that, if you share this journal, please link back to it here so I can assign a number to you for option 2. I saw some of them in my mention and reminded a few people there, but in case you don't use a thumb, my :icon: or the :dev:, I can't see if you shared it and can't remind you to do so. It would be a pity if you did it and don't have a chance because you forgot to link back - thus, a little reminder to do it if you haven't done it yet! ^^
On another note, please, everyone give a huge huge hug and thanks to BAMART19! He is terribly kind and donated a lot of points for this giveaway, so you should definitely check him out! He has a 60k kiriban as well, if you're interested So go and take a look at this stuff! If you look at the prizes again you will also see that I raised the point prizes and added more of them, and that is
Triggers, Triggers Everywhere"Trigger warning."
If you browse art on dA or Tumblr, you've probably seen these words before.
What exactly is a trigger?
Triggers come in multiple flavors.
Trauma triggersA person who has experienced a severe traumatic event—which isn't just limited to war veterans—may find that a particular sensory experience sends them back to that trauma. Although as camelopardalisinblue rightfully points out, it may not always be a full-scale flashback. Plenty of grey areas.
I knew someone who had been abused in a room with fish-themed wallpaper. (Details changed to protect privacy.) So while something like the Jesus fish was tolerable because it was so abstract, they found real fish uncomfortable, and sudden exposure to a similar type of fish drawing would send them into a severe anxiety attack and then flashbac
Equestria Girls Rainbow Dash Dress-up gameI'm not sure how many of you folk are into virtual dress-up games, but from my limited experience with the genre, I would say this is one of the better ones. Starsue has taken Rainbow Dash from the NYT article image and set her up for vitual dress-up play. So now you can mess with her hair, change her clothes, and all that she-bang.
You can play the game here on starsue.net
Maybe if the game gets popular enough, we'll have the rest of the Mane 6 in dress-up games as well?
Keep in Touch!
