Vector Art Contest: Self
The Vector Community is full of portraits and pieces of men and women... of people we know, people we know of and people we admire. If there is one person we should know most of is ourselves.
If you're a vector artist, this is the contest for you. We're asking you to create a self portrait. You can take this theme in many ways... you could simple vector a photograph of yourself, you could create a piece which is representative of who you are or even create a vector character of how you see yourself, it is open for your own imagination to play with! Remember often a portrait is more than just a representation of a photograph!
As part of the vector contest, it is my pleasure to confirm CrisVector will be helping me with judging all the contest pieces! Both of us have experience in vector portraits as well as creating our own vector self portraits.

Gallery Folders and Group Submission RulesPlease heed these rules, wrong submissions can be denied.Gallery Folders and Group Submission Rules4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Due in part to the increasing number of members, and the growing amount of submissions that Admin has to deal with on a daily basis, there will be some changes and enforcement to the group submissions policies.
There have been several group members who continue to repeatedly submit to the wrong category, even after being warned each time that the category is wrong, yet they continue to do so. In part I blame myself for adding to this in continually warning - then moving the submission to the correct category. This will no longer be the case. This can tend to be a huge burden to sort through at times, so from henceforth on any submissions to the incorrect category will be denied, and all of Admin has my permission to deny those - with an explanation as to why.
IF you feel that your submission was to the wrong category, you can always withdraw the submission an

New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

Avoid getting ripped off by a client.As a freelancer most of your business takes place online, which makes it really easyAvoid getting ripped off by a client.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
for people to rip you off. How many times have we seen the following scenario's:
1- Someone offers a descent payment for your artwork but wants you to do an art-test first.
after the art-test you're being told you're not good enough. Later you find out that other people
got to do different art-test topics and also weren't good enough. The client clearly ripped people off to get free artwork.
2- Someone offers good money for your artwork. The sketch gets approved so you continue working. Right when it's done the total image suddenly becomes a great disappointment and the client ends up not paying you.
These were just 2 examples of situations that happen a lot to freelancers. There are many more like it.

Summer is here!I've found that as the summer gets closer and closer, difficult life situations start to untangle, and things get hell of a lot better. This year, my initial decision was in contrast to what I would normally do. I decided I would not go to the seaside until September, when I would combine a one week trip to Slovakia, followed with one week at the seaside. So that was the plan.Summer is here!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But sometimes even the simplest of plans go haywire in a way you would never imagine. (note to self, less planing, more working)
So, I was having a late conversation with my dear friend a few nights ago, and I joked that we should run from all the stress in the city and go to the seaside. And because she is so awesome, she basically said "Let's go!".
Needless to say, I am pretty euphoric about that. She does have some things to do before we can go, but I hope she gets it done, so that we can leave here.
Whatever happens, I am sure the summer of 2012 will be legen-wait for it-dary!
So, here's to the Sun!

Daily Deviations DescriptionsGreetings!Daily Deviations Descriptions4 years ago in Personal More Like This
My name is Danielle or Moonbeam13, and I'm the Director of Community Relations here at deviantART. During the course of my day part of what I do involves shaking things up and testing new ideas to keep things fresh in the community. Most of these ideas stem from community feedback - things the community has related back to my team of volunteers or to me directly.
Such is the case with Daily Deviation descriptions. First, let's clarify what was tested and what the end result is because there is some confusion.
Originally, I had requested that the volunteers not reuse descriptions sent to them by suggesters. I know it seems nutty but there was a period of time where I was receiving an unrelenting amount of complaints about us just 'pasting what the suggester said' and so I decided that for a short period I'd let the community see what it looks like when we don't do that. As suspected the amount of complaints about 'no descriptions' was alm

deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.comIt recently came to our attention that a website called Art4Love.com was offering prints for sale, some based off of deviations also found on deviantART.com (and perhaps other works by artists not on deviantART). Art4Love.com is currently offline, but was up long enough to make some artists very understandably upset, as neither the artists (we are told) nor deviantART ever gave permission for Art4Love.com to sell these prints.deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.com4 years ago in Personal More Like This
We've been tracking the exchanges of comments and journals about all possible infringing activity and are ready to provide information from our side that would help legal action that any of the affected artists decide to bring. We will also fully cooperate with any government agency that may become involved because of consumer complaints against this apparently infringing website and the people running it. We would also happily cooperate with any possible fraud investigations.

Presenting: Community VolunteersA BRIEF OVERVIEWPresenting: Community Volunteers4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, we've been proud to offer the opportunity to volunteer with deviantART. We believe that our volunteers play a crucial role in helping our community develop and grow in positive ways.
The Gallery Moderator (previously known as Gallery Director) and Message Network Admin (MN@) teams have become a much loved and appreciated role, with many volunteers proudly detailing their experience in applications to enter into successful careers with companies who all recognise the value of volunteering in such a vibrant and eclectic community. Did you know that some of our now full time Staff were once volunteers? fourteenthstar, Moonbeam13, Pachunka, aunjuli, y2jenn, damphyr, Tachy-on, dxd and Ikue all volunteered in various roles -- and we are all very proud of that fact!
Over the past few months, we've been taking a close look at the volunteer experience -- what's worked, what hasn't worked a

One of the most common requests from the community has been to update deviantART's mobile site. By popular demand, we just launched a brand new version of the mobile site to Beta Testers! The site is officially supported in mobile browsers on the iPhone and Android phones and tablets.
For a very long time, we've been running two versions of the deviantART website: the desktop version, and the mobile version—and the latter has fallen behind.
As we all know, the previous mobile site was missing a lot of major features. Instead of developing two separate versions of the site—a desktop version and a mobile version—we've formatted the desktop site to fit into a mobile browser. This allows the mobile sit

Starting at the bottomWell hi. It's been forever since I've updated my journal here on deviantART. Let me go back a little bit, and work my way forward. I stepped down from the CR Team because life has caused my focus to be required in other places. I hope the gallery is well looked after, as I DO love the Wallpapers gallery... But my life was and is a train-wreck, and I wasn't capable of leading or guiding anymore.Starting at the bottom2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Having moved from CT to NY, then NY to GA, then GA back to NY, and then NY to FL, and from one town in FL to another one here in FL... I've been on the move a lot, trying to get stable, trying to find love, trying to find work, trying to find inspiration, trying to find purpose. Trying to rediscover myself, reinvent myself. New places, new things.
So far I've learned that no matter where I go - there I am. It's not that I have ever wanted to run from a problem, but being a tumbleweed has allowed me to experience so many new and awesome things, and
