Icon ContestHi guys,Icon Contest2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I don't think I've ever held a personal contest before, so this is all really new to me.
I need a new icon/avatar, so I thought I'd make a little contest out of it! If you could spread the word by posting this article in a poll or journal, that would be wonderful.
The icon must be 50x50px and under 15kb in file size.
I am only accepting pixel icons for this contest.
Entries must be new and only made for this contest.
The icon must contain me or something that you feel represents me. (Check my current ID or instagram for my appearance)
Things I like: Lady Gaga, Daenerys Targaryen (from Game of Thrones); colours: blue and teal.
If you need to know anything else about me, feel free to send me a note or comment below.
If you use any resources, you MUST add credits
Thumb Snippet Contest Hey everyone! I just wanted to share the results of GillianIvy's Thumbs Snippet Contest, which was all about getting people to create installable code for thumbs. All of the entries were amazing, and I really thought I wouldn't stand a chance, but turns out that I won first place!Thumb Snippet Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, the point of the contest was definitely achieved because now there are a whole bunch of codes for thumbs that you can easily install paste into your journals. All of the contest entries really quite different, so I'm sure that you'll find at least one you'll like!
To use these thumb codes:
1. Click on the "Install to Journal" button at the bottom of the deviation.
2. Open up the CSS code by clicking the "Edit Skin" link in Sta.sh Writer, and then press the "Accept" button.
3. Copy everything in the main box called Skin CSS, and then copy this into the same box on a different journal skin, at the bottom of

PE DD Week: A DD is not an award, but a feature.PE DD Week: A DD is not an award, but a feature.3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A DD is not an award but an art feature.
There. I said it. A DD is not a prestigious award that will change your life drastically, it's just a 24h feature.
But why is it so important to make this distinction?
It's just a way of naming something and therefore should not be of great importance, yet it makes all the difference in how people perceive a DD.
On the importance of terminology
As mentioned in the intro, the biggest problem when it comes to Daily Deviations arises with the choice of words used to describe what a Daily Deviaton is. When you call it an award, people will automatically assume that the Daily Deviation is the cream of the crop of every deviation posted ever on this site and that no art featured after it should be able to be perceived as "worse". However, when you call it a feature, most people are fine with the picked deviations and don't even hold them to the high standards of living up and

Original Quotes deviantWEAR Design Challenge!Original Quotes deviantWEAR Design Challenge!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's time for our next deviantWEAR Design Challenge, and this one is a little different. Writers, you play a crucial role! We're calling on deviants to create an original phrase, statement, or saying and transform these writings into an artistic and unique t-shirt design. Entries should display an imaginative phrase, expression, or statement as well as a beautiful presentation of the words in a "Design Typography" style.
We are not looking for famous quotes by historical figures, fictional characters, famous poets, and the like. Instead, we are excited to see designs and phrases in your very own words. So let your creative juices flow and share your inspiring words with the world! A picture tells a thousand words, but your typographical design for the "Original Quotes" entry will tell us even more!
Participation is easy!

Hosting a contest on dA is a really fun way to inspire other artists and do something positive for the community. If you've never run a contest before, it can seem like a daunting task so to make it a little easier, here are some things to consider before you create your contest and open it to the deviant public...
Your contest should have a theme. It can be as vague (Aliens, Summer, Cats) or as specific as you like (Alien Cats in Summer). When choosing your theme, take time to consider it's appeal to your potential entrants. A less specific theme is likely to attact more people as the scope for entries is wider. It depends on whether or not you want your contest to be huge - sometimes, bigger isn't always bet

DeviantART is getting a tremendous, positive response to our call for support for the application by DAdotART for the .ART domain.

We also have a special request to members of the deviantART community who belong to organizations involved in the arts to submit an indication of support from the organization.

Comics and Donut MakingI liken the comic book making business to the life of a donut.Comics and Donut Making2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Allow me to explain.
Unless you're a baker, I doubt you're going to make a good donut your first time out. I mean it sounds simple enough. A donut. But it's not. When was the last time your mother made you a donut? "I know, I'll bake some donuts and bring them to the party...!" Not a lot of people can make donuts, or good ones at least. So I assume it takes some practice. Some care. Just like making a decent comic book.
So you practice and train yourself and you get to a point in your donut making expertise that you decide to make one for public consumption. You gather the ingredients. You prep your kitchen. You set the oven temperature. You get your donut ducks in order. Once it's all nice and heated you want people to enjoy it -so you proudly display that tasty tire on a pretty shelf. Probably next to a bunch of other carefully crafted donuts. Finally someone buys that little fella and chews it up. Maybe they were just hu

It happens to us all at some point... We find a problem. This problem could be another user, some art or a technical glitch. The types of problems are you could encounter here on deviantART could span 100 news articles, so we will just focus on the most common issues and how to get help with them.
You will, at some point, have an issue with another deviant. Just like in real life, personalities collide, heads will butt, and tempers will flare. But when does it become a problem? And how do you solve the problem?
Harassment is a serious issue. Comments made to you, even if by note, that are "extremely aggressive, insulting or otherwise extremely abusive" are not allowed. The Etiquette Policy and dA FAQ 238 makes this 100% clear. If someone is contacting you and behaving this way, the first th
