The Challenge




Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?

The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lights of the Future?




The Mediums




- Stock & Resources: Create a stock image according to the theme of the contest. Your entry must be relevant to a bio-luminescent world or elements.

- Digital Media: Photomanipulations/Mixed Media: You must use at least two stock photos from dA Stock Providers in the artwork (All other digital galleries: as a reference and inspiration.) Please be sure to properly credit and notify your stock providers to be eligible for this contest.

- Traditional Media: Create a setting relevant to your medium where the trees and plants are bio-luminescent.

- Considering that this contest is open to our youngest members, submissions containing nudity, sexual themes, or extreme violence/gore will not be accepted.


The Deadline



Contest Begins: September 15th, 2014  12:00 A.M. PST

Contest Ends: October 15th, 2014   11:59 P.M. PST


When your entry is finished:

dA Connection/Slowdown issues for users



For several days, many dA users are not able to access the site. Connection/slowdown isses, pages not loading means many who are trying to access the site or contact people are not able to do so. This is leading many people to confusion. deviantART is already aware of the situation and they are continuously working to get it fixed soon!

They have announced it in their deviantART Status section of help:


You can keep up to date with any announcements by email they make through deviantART Status by subscribing to it (click the link below):

-> How to Subscribe to the deviantART Status Forum and to Individual Posts



However, many are not able to even access the deviantART Status page, as the same issue persists there, as you have to log in there to click subscribe. Many who have commissioners waiting, status updates and other communications waiting means the people on the other end of the communication are not aware why the people they need to contact may not be able to respond for this period of time, so this announcement is to let them know about this. If you are able to share it across the net, know others who are not aware of this situation, please let them know that it may be for this particular reason. If you are able to subscribe to the deviantART Status, do so so you may be personally updated for any updates regarding dA through email.


You can also reblog this same information on Tumblr from here: Click Here

You can always contact dA to get the info, such as these:

This post is only to let everyone know that dA team is already aware of the situation and they are working on it. Stay positive and creative!



Monday Muses

Mon Sep 15, 2014, 10:45 AM



Welcome to our activity on Mondays - Monday Muses!


It's all about the artists and artworks that inspire you! :painter:

There are many ways someone can be an inspiration. By displaying inspiring community spirit, or providing helpful resources for example. Or maybe you just stumbled over an amazing artwork that simply knocked you off your feet and inspired you to make something of your own right away. No matter what it is, we want you to share it!

Simply pick an artist or deviation you find inspiring in some way, and post them in a comment on this journal. Please also include why you chose that artist or artwork. Your suggestions will be featured next week! :heart:

If you want the feature to be a surprise for the deviant(s) you suggested, please leave away the '@' or :dev: when typing the username (and post links to artworks instead of thumbs), that way your Muses won't be notified of your comment here through the mentions system.

Also feel free to post this wonderful stamp the awesome a-neverending made on the profile pages of your Muses once the feature is published:

Give a stamp! - You are my MondayMuse by a-neverending




This week's Muses are:

"Surglo is a good friend of mine on dA, for a very long time! She is patient, kind, and generous with me.
She is a very special person, and it is good for me to know her.  What I like about her art so much, is that she is not afraid to "step outside of the box".  She is creative and colourful, and her work is awesome!
Here is an example to share:

Succumbing to FantasyOh my deepest desires
How I wish that I can have you
And never let go
You slip away when I return to the real world
And I feel as though I'm slipping away
From the things that keep me normal
All that matters is that I don't want to lose
The only thing that keeps me sane
The only thing that keeps me alive inside
My livid imagination
My dreams
My fantasies
Oh how I wish you were real
And take me away from this cruel world.
Wander Over Yonder Fanfic (Preview)Somewhere, in a galaxy far far away, a metallic skull-like ship was slowly, but steadily, approaching a blue planet that was ways away from their current location. 
Inside the ship and near the control panels, was a hooded figure with lightning bolts sticking out of it, its gloved hand reaching up to its head.  “How much longer until we reach the planet…?”  It asked another figure sleepily as it looked up at the radar which was blipping every now and then, indicating a nearby planet.   
The other figure was smaller in size, but its cap that contained an elongated lightning bolt embedded in it made up for its short stature. “I’d estimate roughly one day, sir…” It answered, rubbing his red eye.
“Ugh…this is taking way too long, is there some way we can get there faster?  Initiate hyper-speed; the sooner we get there, the sooner the planet’s mine.”  The taller figu

Arr mateys',

This Friday (September 19th) is Talk Like a Pirate Day, and what kind of day would that be without a chance for you all to win some booty!  .:Piratela:. 
I reckon some Community Volunteers have been hogging some booty to themselves, the slimy eels!
It's your job to find where they are hiding their booty, and steal it all for ye-self! Pirate w00t 



Here's how it works:
  • Read over the Chat list of activities here
  • Attend as many Chat events as you can: Clues to find their booty will be announced during the events!
  • Collect the clues to each Community Volunteer's booty, and try to find them all!!
  • Once you have found them all, send me Mrs-Durden, a note with the links to all their booty!

:note: Booty = Treasure. The treasure will be a photo, linked somewhere on the Community Volunteer's page. (Beware! The clues might be tricky!)

:note:  If you must miss some of the chat events, you will need to send me a note, telling me which events you missed, and asking for a clue!
I will then give you a riddle/clue to find out which Community Volunteer's booty you are missing and where to find it! (I reckon you'd be better off going to the Chat Events ;))

:note: The treasure hunt begins on Friday the 19th of September!

THE WINNER SHALL RECEIVE A 3 MONTH PM, AND 1,000 :points:! Pirates are hot...? 


But to win you must find the links to all the treasures, and that'll be quite the task me matey :ahoy:


You have until 1AM PST on Saturday 20th to send me the links to everyone's booty!


Talk Like a Pirate Day - Forum events!Arr mateys,
Ye ready for some creative and fun ways to win awesome prizes? :ahoy:
Here's the list of all the forum events that will go up this Friday, Sept 19th! All event winners will receive 3 month PMs or :points:!


Best Pirate Pick-Up Line
Self-explanatory, you'll need to give us your best Pirate pick up line! (nothing that violates DA rules/policy)


Muro Draw
You'll be asked to draw something pirate themed in Muro and then post it as a comment into the forum!


Pirate Creative Stories
You'll be asked to write a short creative story about pirate adventures!


3 line Pirate Poem
You'll be asked to write a poem about being a pirate and fighting for your treasure or plunder!
Best Pirate Joke!
You'll be asked to give us your best pirate joke!

Stock & Resources


Welcome to Stock & Resources Project Educate week!




What is Project Educate?


projecteducate, originally launched in 2008 by the Community Relations team, is a project to promote and support artistic growth and knowledge throughout the community. The project includes contests, interviews, and various other events for artistic and community involvement.  Stock & Resources week will go from today (Sept 15) til Sunday the 21st.


What are Stock & Resources?


Stock & Resources is one of the largest galleries on deviantArt.  It is full of deviations submitted by deviants for others to use in their own works and/or learn from.  These include things like photographic stock images, lineart, patterns, tutorials, and lots lots more.


What can I expect from Stock & Resources week?


All kinds of things!  We will have a contest starting in a few hours, and many articles and interviews.  The week is packed full and we are ready to go!  Here's what we did last time.


Sounds great! I want to get involved.


We'd love to have you!  Do a feature, an interview, an informative article about stock, a tutorial, whatever you like, and shoot us a link!  We'll add it to the roundup at the end.  



Your Stock & Resources CVs are Elandria, PirateLotus-Stock, and CelticStrm-Stock
