Help me improve deviantART!I'm working on a project for deviantART to streamline the submission process. I'm trying to think of all the different points of interaction between an idea or concept for a piece of art and submitting it onto the site. What programs do you use? Basically, what are the steps you take to go from idea to design to submit. Are there any plugins or applications that we could use to automate the process? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The main character as an orphan2. The main character is mistreated by relatives, stepparents, and/or society in general3. The main character being destined to become the hero due to some birthmark or prophecy4.
