Hello everyone! It's that time of year when the air becomes colder and snowflakes begin to fall from the heavens, the landscape becomes covered by a blanket of white.. (depending on where you are in the world that is. :'D ) So, do you know what that calls for?! That's right an OC Winter/Yule/Christmas Contest! (I decided to launch the contest eight days ahead of schedule since the positive results on my recent polls asked for them.)

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May
End Date: Monday

Don Shanks (Michael Myers #5)- he wrote, "To Emilie. Don Shanks Michael Myers" then I got a picture with him. He picked me up & choked me! And he's like, "Try to look scared!" but I couldn't stop smiling. After the pic he carried me off & said, "I'm keeping her!" he's so strong! And he's like, 62!!
Gunnar Hanson (Leatherface)- he wrote, "Emilie- you're next! Gunnar Hanson" then when I got a picture with him he said, "Don't be scared!" & I said, "I'm not!" now I have an idea of what Tommy sounds like & he has brown eyes!!!!
Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger)- he wrote, "For Emilie! Sweet Dreams! Robert Englund" & for my picture, he grabbed the hood string on my hoodie, wrapped it round my finger & made his awesome face! I waited 1 & a half hour for him!!!! When I got up there, he said, "Emilie!! I saw you in the audience! You look like 1 of my Nightmare Brats!" I just couldn't stop smiling!! he's SO funny!!
Using HTML on deviantARTUsing HTML on deviantART4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

Support the Sara Baker Trust Fund!Support the Sara Baker Trust Fund!6 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Back in November of 2008, I bought you the story of Sara Baker, AKA :iconGloryAngel:, a friend and fellow deviant who had suffered a stroke after a car accident. The stroke resulted in her being "locked-in," a condition in which she can feel her whole body, think and reason clearly, but is unable to speak or move.
Since the accident, Sara has done amazingly well in making strides towards improvement. In late 2008, Sara was able to move home under the supervision of home nurses and her mother's care. Though they have been slow and long in progress, she has taken little steps forward like learning to move her head a bit, purse her lips, and for a while she was even free of her tracheotomy and breathing on her own.

Vegan beautyChocolate Bubble BathVegan beauty4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1/3 cup unsweetened soy milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup unscented liquid bubble bath
Heat (but do not boil) the soy milk and cocoa powder and stir until blended. Let cool.
Add the bubble bath and stir.
Pour the entire batch into the tub. Enjoy!
Anti-Zit Face Mask
1 Tbsp. cruelty-free baking soda
1-2 Tbsp. filtered water
Mix the baking soda and water together until you've got a paste.
Apply to your face and leave on for about 20 minutes.
Rinse and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.
1 aspirin tablet (contains salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores)
Crush the aspirin with the back of a spoon and add just enough water to form a paste. Apply to the blemishes and let sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing.
Another spot treatment trick is to take a dab of cruelty-free toothpaste (the white paste kind, not the gel), and apply it to blemishes. Leave on overnight. This will dry out zits quickly.

A frightening display of spooktacular work, one and all! We challenged deviants across the world to channel their inner demons and create a scary mask suitable for facing their monsters. We saw incredible work, from hand-painted masks, to bone-chilling photomanipulations, to hair-raising digital work and more. Congratulations to everyone who was involved!

Remember this: The Nazis started by burning books, ACTA/PIPA/SOPA started by burning websites. Megaupload was the first, it will not be the last. When the masses no logner have information, they will be easy prey for the politicians to mould and shape to their will.
Wikipedia has so much copyrighted but not authorized material that its, by my estimate, 15 million web pages will become victims of ACTA in short order if laws supporting the ACTA treaty, signed secretly on October 1, 2011, are passed. That is equal to the number of Holocaust deaths of all groups, not just Jews. It is a bastion of modern knowledge, and let's face it, knowledge is power, they take our knowledge away, they take our power away, where does our power go? To them, of course. Websites may not be equal to human lives, but to us, they are negligible compared to l

Architecture Photography: Introduction
Welcome to the projecteducate Architecture Photography Week!
Boy oh boy! I've been preparing this for a few weeks now so I gathered quite a few articles for you guys! To begin with, I will introduce you to the Architecture Photography Gallery on deviantART with all its sub-categories. Then we'll move on to the basics in Architecture Photography in order to help you take successful photographs. We will also see some of the trends around the Gallery with inspiring examples, just to give you a taste of what you can do and encourage you to give it a try as well!
Along with all these articles, I've also prepared interviews with remarkable architecture photographers within the community, but also outside deviantART! I hope you'll enjoy to get to know these people better.
There is an Architecture Photography Critique Event plan

THE ODDLY SPECIFIC FETISH ART CONTEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hello you sick denizens of the Interwebz. I am sure you've run into it; yes, the strange anatomy, the awkward MSpaint quality color and lines, the oddly specific fetish art. What started off as an erotic fantasy took a turn for the wtf in the hands of a less-then talented aspiring furfag ready to depict the exact kink that cranks their lever. My challenge for you, my pretties, is to recreate the unease, the distaste, the unintentionally hilarious qualities our resident Sonic Fans amateur fetish artists manage to create on a daily basis. Basically, I want you to find a fetish, an oddly specific one (like, oh, say, a fetish for bald girls wearing onsies and farting in cakes with strawberries.)THE ODDLY SPECIFIC FETISH ART CONTEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
