What is TRiK?

Powerful and Stylish

Sony's TRiK™ docking system is a unique, brand new audio enhancement machine capable of transforming your musical world into something you've previously only dreamed of. In the past, musical superiority was relegated only to bland black boxes. Today, with the advent of the TRiK™ , your musical experience can now be far more colorful and far more customized. The cool and interchangeable skins you can download or create yourself make the TRiK™  more than just an iPod-friendly powerhouse. Nay, the TRiK™  is the perfect representation of you and your tastes.

Check out the TRiK™  community group site

  

Artwork Created by $reiiz

Exemplify your skinning superiority. Create a unique, one-of-a-kind skin for the TRiK™ that represents a musical genre of your choice. To participate, download the skin template below and start getting creative.

Making an awesome skin means a potential win (that rhymes), and a win means incredible prizes including your very own TRiK™ and a Sony® Playstation® 3 computer entertainment system (meaning you can listen to awesome music and play awesome video games AT THE SAME TIME).

A winning entry will be visually stunning, so make sure you really bring out your A-game on this one.

See $reiiz's skin example above for inspiration.

INTERNATIONAL, 13+
Bosses are the biggest, baddest, and strongest enemies in any video game. They control hordes of monsters, rule the land, and they usually take a lot of skill to defeat. We're challenging you to create a new colossus
(a boss) for the new massively multiplayer online role-playing game, RIFT.

You're traveling through Telara as a bright light appears. A massive rift opens up and monsters start invading. Your team fights to protect their land. As they continuously battle the invading monsters, a massive, 10-story colossus appears.

deviantART is challenging artists to answer the question: What does this colossus look like in RIFT?

Choose one of the six planar themes: earth, air, fire, water, life, or death. Create concept art of a colossus using one of the themes. You can use your favorite image editing tool, a 3D program, or traditional media.

You must build a new colossus for the game RIFT.

Your colossus:
  • Must be based on only one of the six planar themes
  • Must be very large within the scale of the game environment
  • Must be original to you and all elements must originate from you. You cannot copy graphic material from the game.
  • Can be made in any medium as long as you submit it as a JPG or a PNG
  • Can be made using licensed brushes and textures, but you may not use third-party stock in your entry
Terrible to behold and teeming with elemental might, a colossus represents the ultimate destructive power of its plane, leading its fellow riftspawn to battle against scores of Ascended.

Choose one of the six planar themes. (Click examples below.)

Create concept art for a massive boss using your favorite image editing program, 3D graphics software, or traditional media.

Once you're done, submit it as a .JPG or .PNG file!

Unmasking the Darkness

The Game

Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell.

Dishonored and facing his own death, War is given the opportunity to return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible.

Hunted by a vengeful group of Angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance and vindication.

Go to www.darksiders.com to learn more about the game!

The Contest

We are challenging you to create a piece of artwork in any visual medium depicting a creative and personal interpretation of the last days of Earth during an 'apocalypse'. What would the end of the world mean to you? Is it your favorite TV show getting canceled? Your best friend moving across the country? A world with no ketchup (OMG!)? Whether your version is "fire and brimstone" in the biblical sense or a world overrun by cannibalistic bunnies – we want to see what your 'last days' would look like!

As an extra special treat, the winners for this contest will be selected by Joe Madureira of Vigil Games, AKA Joe Mad!

We're highlighting the careers of four professional artists and their journeys through art school. We asked them questions on how their paths formed, challenges along the way, and how education in the arts helped them to be where they are today.




























Charity Bundle Young Arts
Young Arts


To show our support for education through the arts, for 2 weeks we will be donating 10% of all sales of the brand-new Back-to-School Bundle to Young Arts, a charity that assists young emerging artists in their educational and professional development.


















The Cause

DeviantART has partnered with FAIR (Freedom, Action, Inclusion, Rights) to help promote equality through The Love Unites Shepard Fairey Equality Project. We're asking our members to align themselves with this cause through their passion and creativity, and have their work judged by renowned artist, Shepard Fairey, in the process.

FAIR, with its finger on the pulse of our generation's passion and potential, is revolutionizing what it means to be young and active. Stepping up after the passage of Proposition 8 (the California state proposition banning same-sex marriage) to galvanize tomorrow's leaders, FAIR emerged as a grassroots force. The group brings together the skills, passion, and determination of a collection of young professionals from diverse backgrounds committed to the struggle for equality. FAIR has given the movement a visible face, image, and message. On November 15th, 2008, FAIR's first event brought, in less than a week, 15,000 people to City Hall, and asked Shepard Fairey to create the "Love Unites" image – now a unifying symbol at equality events across the globe. Working to create a tangible shift in California's marriage equality movement, FAIR embodies and empowers a new generation to claim equality and freedom as their own; and, with pop culture street cred backing it up, wages war on homophobia.

The Contest

To spotlight the equality cause, FAIR has teamed up with over 80 celebrities (everyone from Robert De Niro to Julia Roberts, Scarlett Johansson to Jared Leto) and had them sign and, in some cases, customize the original Shepard Fairey "Love Unites" print, which you can find available for download below. The customized pieces are being auctioned off online here.

Deviants — it's YOUR turn to customize the "Love Unites" print and have Shepard Fairey judge your creation! For this contest, we're asking you to remix and re-imagine the original "Love Unites" print. The contest is open to ALL deviantART members, EVERYWHERE in the world. Not only is this a great opportunity to help promote a fantastic cause, but the final winners will be chosen by Shepard Fairey himself! This is a huge deal; so have fun and get creative with the "Love Unites" design, get your work checked out by Shepard Fairey, and win some awesome prizes.

Three Steps to Success

1. Download the template & create your own bottle artwork.

The template will provide you with a rectangular         "skin" outline representing the dimensions         of the actual label that wraps around the bottle.         Place your artwork into the rectangular template.         There is also a side-view of the bottle, which you         may optionally use (in addition to the required         rectangular skin) to show off your artwork on an         actual bottle shape.

Create anything you want using the template so         long as it represents your vision. Your entry         should show the Art Water name in whatever design         or placement you choose.

Helpful tip: The Art Water bottle is clear, meaning         you can play with the transparency for some crazy         layering effects. Now download the template and         start creating!

It's a philosophy, an attitude, and a commitment to being the best you can be. It's about not letting drugs and alcohol compromise who you are. It's about staying strong in the face of anything that'll make you less than you, because ultimately, it's your life and it's so worth it.


DeviantART is the perfect place to show off all the passions that fill up your life.

Show us what you love and what inspires you. Those passions that fill your life—the things that leave no room for drugs and alcohol. Draw, paint, sculpt, photograph, digitally manipulate—exercise your craft in any way you choose to form the shape of the Above the Influence symbol.

Your artwork will be featured in a sharable slideshow widget on the deviantART homepage and on abovetheinfluence.com. And not only that, Above the Influence might offer to use your artwork in their national advertising campaigns!
