Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us.
  • In response to the Discuss topic, most deviants said that they don't spend much time managing their Favourites, outside of occasionally creating or deleting Collections. 
  • Some deviants mentioned that being able to search in Favourites or create a subfolder in Collections would be helpful in terms of organizing one's Favourites. Both are included in our list of common suggestions!

Discuss!


Scraps

Do you post your creations to your Scrapbook? What reason(s) do you have for posting them there, as opposed to your main Gallery? Do you move deviations from your Gallery to your Scrapbook, and if so, why? Do you ever move things from your Scraps into your Gallery?

It’s time for the caravans to organize the clans in their multitudes and for the outlier lone wolves to pack provisions. It’s time for the cosplayers to retrieve their Wookie suits and Pegasister Wings from the cleaners and for true fans to organize their maps and plans for ultimate zeitgeist intake. And it’s time for the heart and soul of Comic-Con, the artists and writers themselves to gather their wares and wonders and set their sights on pieces of prime real estate in Artists’ Alley, the Mecca of Comic-Con’s holy and unholy sojourners.


It’s time for you to make a decision.


The Universe requests your spiritual presence in a communal elevation of the global pop arts movement.  You can do your part in making the human connections that make the world a better place.

See You In San Diego!








A versatile powerhouse of a creation device, Madefire’s Motion Book Tool can be used to make an variety of digital creations, ranging from simple print-style books to complex, dynamic Motion Books that leap off the screen.



Simple: The Page-by-Page Experience


Creating comics, graphic novels, or other works in a classic page-by-page format is a simple, three-step process with the Motion Book Tool.

  • Step 1: Open the Motion Book Tool

  • Step 2: Click "Upload Assets" and upload your created pages

  • Step 3: Create a new project, and put your pages in the project in order

  • Step 4: Upload to deviantART!




Professional: Storytelling in Motion


At its full capacity, the Motion Book Tool is designed with the professional in mind: powerful enough to handle whatever your imagination can create. Because it’s professional-grade software, the Tool can be advanced at first glance; however, artists who bring the Tool into their creative process find it extremely dynamic—allowing for nearly limitless artistic freedom.


Our friends at Madefire have provided some helpful tools to ease you into using the Tool, which we strongly recommend having on hand: 




Selling Your Motion Books


With the simplicity of selling Motion Books, profiting from your creations has never been easier!

  1. On the Submit page, select “Premium Content” from the options in the right column 
  2. On Step 2 of submission, set the price you want to sell your Motion Book for, then agree to the Premium Content Terms of Service and click Submit!


The first three pages of your Motion Book will be readable by anyone, presented as a teaser of sorts. From there, readers can purchase the rest of your Motion Book, showing interest in your stories and helping fuel your future endeavors!

DeviantART is proud to announce More Like This - a new way to explore deviantART. When you find a piece of artwork that you love, More Like This surfaces related artwork, artists, and Collections. With More Like This and our other new browse upgrades, deep-diving through the deviantART community's diverse collection of over 200 million deviations just got better.
We developed More Like This to make it easier to find the content you love. With over 100,000 new deviations being submitted daily, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of browsable artwork. More Like This allows you to discover corners of deviantART catered just to you, based on deviations you already love.
The viewing experience no longer stops after one image. With More Like This, you can choose to browse endlessly through a stream of artwork, changing your path each time you click "More Like This" on a deviation. If you love exploring artwork, you'll love More Like This.
More Like This is not image-recognition software. Instead, it looks at where an image exists on the deviantART social graph and finds deviations that are nearby. This means that members of the deviantART community help define the More Like This results. Explore the connections and insights of the deviantART community with every click.
When you organize results by artist, More Like This surfaces people that create artwork similar to what you’ve selected, allowing you to find and explore new talent!
With millions of Collections of artwork curated by the deviantART community, More Like This lets you organize results by Collections of Favourites from the community that are relevant to the artwork you select.
When using Browse or Search, hover over a deviation and select "More Like This" to see more content like that deviation. This means that you can select "More Like This" from More Like This results, allowing you to browse endlessly through a stream of related artwork!
More Like This buttons can also be found on deviation pages.
We've improved the left-hand navigation bar to include Popular and Newest options. For deviants who like their art to be larger than life, the new Full View mode allows deviations to be browsed through at a larger scale. Full View mode also provides the ability to favourite, collect, view comments, and participate in the discussion right from the browse page.
Our new Show More button allows you to scroll endlessly while browsing More Like This results. For those that prefer the original pagination interface, we've added an option to toggle between both modes. Your setting will be preserved as you browse.


Seniorityheader 2 by fourteenthstar
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after Senior Member accolade -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.


So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community. 

Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd.

Today, we present to you the following deviants who have all been awarded Seniority in our current round of community recognitions. They have all been nominated for their efforts in the community by deviants, Staff and Volunteers.

What's Hot (Beta): Trending Artwork on deviantART

Our new “What’s Hot” browse mode surfaces artwork that’s receiving a recent increase in exposure, regardless of when it was submitted.

Create and search for art using your mind

Introducing thoughtART Technology

A few years ago, deviantART teamed up with several university laboratories across the United States, and we are proud to finally announce the fruits of our efforts. Thanks to recent advancements in neurological science, we're unveiling a revolutionary new platform in artistic creation. Our device uses touch-sensitive pads built into your existing keyboard and mouse to monitor your brainwaves and transmit them directly to our site. Excited? Welcome to the new age of thoughtART Technology!

What is thoughtART?

It may sound like something from science fiction, but the technology behind thoughtART is actually quite simple. Each person has unique patterns mapped into their brains correlating with the cadence of the firing of their synapses. Our new platform taps into how the brain processes these synapses and translates them digitally. In the same way that you can "see" an image in your mind when starting on an artistic endeavor, this feature strives to create that right on the digital page without the artist lifting a finger!

The Browser-Brain Interface

When you connect to thoughtART, the technology syncs with your nervous system to discover your artistic style, preferred palette, and ideas that have been floating in your head that you just haven't had time to put to paper. Once connected, the system measures the pulses generated by your temporal lobe and your levels of acetylcholine to read the exact thoughts you're experiencing. The process is 100% harmless, and you will experience no discomfort while your brainmap is being generated.

thoughtART

Create

Create with thoughtART
Happy April Fools' Day 2014!

Put aside your brushes, pencils, and tablets, because thanks to the round-the-clock efforts of deviantART's partnering science labs, you only need one tool to create the masterpiece you've always dreamed of: your mind. You'll never have to lift a brush again.

thoughtART

Search

Search with thoughtART
Happy April Fools' Day 2014!

Take a break from creation and spend a few minutes getting inspired. Using the same state-of-the-art technology, deviantART has also calibrated the system to help discover the art of your dreams. Sit back with thoughtART Search, and let your brain tell you what it wants to see. (Although the process is completely safe, we recommend resting the creative brain at 30-minute intervals.)

Your Observations

Since this is a brand-new product, we'd love to hear your feedback! What type of art are you generating with thoughtART Create? What does your brain like to browse in thoughtART Search? Let us know!

Publishing Your Findings

Share your creations and findings in the comments on this article, and let the world see what the power of your mind can do.

Username Changes Now Available

Wed May 16, 2012, 3:18 PM


DeviantART has been around for almost twelve years, and in that time, we've seen artists grow from hobbyists to students to professionals. As a member of any community, your identity can change and grow over time.

For years, we've been getting requests from the community asking for the ability to change usernames. We realize that as an artist, it's important to give you the ability to change your personal brand, just as you change your interests, skills, and art types.

How It Works


Deviants can now change their username in their Settings. To change your username, you must have an active Premium Membership.  (The reason there is a "fee" associated with the change is because switching usernames is a complex technical process that can create confusions for fellow deviants.)  Once changed, your previous username will redirect to your new profile. You can only change your username once per six months and you are not able to change back to the original username.

What Happens When You Change Usernames


Once you change your username, you will be logged out and asked to login again using your new username and existing password.

Everything will be transferred
Your deviations (artwork), favourites, watchers, messages, stats, settings, etc., will all be transferred to the new username. The only thing that doesn’t transfer are the places where people mentioned your old username in comments, journals, artwork descriptions, etc.  However, those links will redirect to your new username.

Your watchers will be notified
Your watchers will get a notification in their Message Center informing them that you have changed your username. Also, "(formerly [username])" will display on your new username’s Profile Page and next to your username for one month. This notice will always display (even after the one month) if someone visits your old profile and is redirected to the new one.

Further Details

  • Username changes are available to anyone with an active Premium Membership -- whether you bought it yourself or it was gifted to you.
  • You cannot change your username to one that is taken even if you are the owner of both. You cannot claim a deactivated account.
  • You can simply change the capitalization of your username.
  • No one will be able to claim your old username.
  • Group username changes are not supported at this time.

Username changes have been one of our most requested features, and we're excited to offer this option. We understand the desire to adapt as you progress as an artist and it is our hope that username changes will facilitate this growth. As always, we're eager to hear your feedback!
