I'm really glad the DA has finally find time to open up a debate about it, considering we're the biggest art community online it's a very efficient way to get the word across! I was told that Sopa was brought up in october 2011 and obviously gradually went into a downward spiral from there...I actually recalled something that was kind of strange, back in 2009 or 2010, I remember watching a youtube video talking about 2012 disaster. The people in it stated that they found prove that lead them to believe that 2012 would not be a natural disaster apocalypse but would be an online crises that would end the "-internet-world" as we know it. The video stated that apparently major internet providers are planning to "sell" internet like cable

Hi, below are the images you can work with. Make sure if you use other stock as well from someone else, that commercial use is allowed. That's a must.
To enter, post your artwork here in the comments. Try and keep them as close to portrait format as opposed to square or landscape; around 20cm width x 30cm height. Don't worry about doing the text, I'll sort that out later with the finalist images unless you really like doing it. Limited to five entries
Better/More gear does NOT equal better work!Lately in a few different journals, forum threads and facebook groups I've been noticing a lot of photographers talk about all of their expensive gear, and how it makes their photos so awesome, when in actuality what I see is a handful of mediocre photographers hiding behind a big expensive gear-bag instead of trying to make some actual improvement in their technical skill before buying the expensive gear. For example, I just read a photographer's journal listing at least 20 different expensive lights and modifiers that he uses, and not only does his work lack technical or artistic skill [which you can teach yourself WITHOUT slowing yourself down from buying a ton of gear that you aren't ready for], but he insults other photographers who he feels are lesser in skill than him. This is ABSURD, and inspired me to make a journal encouraging photographers who may not be able to afford all the fancy stuff to work on improving their skill before upgrading their gear.

The DD TeamBefore we talk about how to identify and suggest a Daily Deviation, let's take a look at the people who select the Daily Deviations every day!The DD Team2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Who runs the Daily Deviations?
Daily Deviations (DDs) are selected by Community Volunteers (CVs) and Staff members. CVs are people who help manage, educate and support the community of artists who visit this site. That can mean anything from reporting news, to holding contests and features, to reporting common concerns to staff members.
As part of their duties, these dedicated members of the community choose deviations to be featured - and they can only feature one each per day. In the literature community, this task is managed by our very own literature CVs:neurotype, DorianHarper, and GrimFace242.

Many thanks to SharonLeggDigitalArt for all her hard work - we have both been busily archiving older works to make them more accessible in folders, rather than being buried deep in one folder - please do check out these older works, there are some brilliant images there.
We would welcome hearing from any accomplished artists who might be interested in joining the admin team to aid us in the voting process on submissions. We would expect you to be very knowledgable in your area of expertise, whether that is in fractal art, photomanipulation, traditional art, photography, etc. - do drop us a line if you are interested. Thanks

This story is true.
While I exaggerate some of the events in this story, and will not name certain specifics out of the interest of continued employment, everything in this story is true.
It is also a very long story. The story of 2011. The story of the year I spent going through unemployment, internships, freelancing, temp work, and reconstructing my own life from the ground up. It's about coming to the realization of my pride being my downfall, how much I thought I deceived myself into thinking I was any good at anything, how little I truly knew about myself, and of course, the ways in which I rectified it all...a little bit.
It's a story that continues as I still live on into the next day, and the day afterward, as the transition isn't anywhere near a heroic conclusion. But such is a matter of life; I am on this hero's journey of mine until the day I kick it. Perpetual change.
This is also a story I've been meaning to tell since last March. That was w

"Never Be Ashamed"
I couldn't help myself. The moment I saw a name placard for "Steven Blum" my nostalgia and long-standing love of all things LucasArts Adventure Games flung my body into auto-pilot and directed me to that booth. In front of him were posters and lithographs of various characters from recent anime recently localized into English, but I inadvertently dumped his mind back into the 90's when I lost all decorum and totally fangasm'd over his role voicing Ludger Brink in The Dig.
"Wow," Steven reeled at my impulsive outburst. "That was...so long ago."
It was spring 2010, just one week before my transfer to the biggest AAA project in our publisher's history. I was at the Wizard World comic convention in Anaheim California. I knew there was going to be celebrity, but not the rockstars that defined my youth. Being a c

The trenches ignite in a ghastly chorus of napalm, the sibling fingers of blazing death extend skyward as if reaching vengefully towards an ambivalent god. All around me, my ears are stung by the tormented and panicked screams of soldiers, their studious diction long-since degraded into a primal ensemble of war cries and gritted exclamations for blood. It is absolute bedlam, the rhythmic breaks between bursts of machine gun fire descend with deafening trepidation like melancholy angels, only to be summoned away forcibly by another crack of the gun's bellowing wrath. Swarms of lead bees zip past my head, so much that they are ignored, if one hits me it hits me, I can't stop it. The bunker is just yards away as myself and my platoon make a furious dash for that protective maw.

What Do You See?
Challenge: Take a look at one of these four photographs.
Then simply show us what you see! But here's the catch - it MUST be dA related!
Here is an example I did:
Rules and Guidelines
The deviation should be dA themed, as this is a birthday contest! For example, you may wish to include Fella, popular emotes, llamas, ninjas etc
You may NOT use the image directly.
Whichever shapes you see in the stock images should be translated as closely as possible in your finished piece. For example, the mountain in my example is the same shape as the wallpaper rip.
Please link to the stock image used and say what part of your image it's used in. For example I used the shape of the wallpa

I thought it would be pretty fun if I made a contest like this and I'm just a lover of anything that's extremely cute.
You can make as many entries as you like! :'D
Anybody can join! :')
With that said, let me get to the point of this contest. The whole idea is simple; you're making a sticker! It's not requiring you to be an art master. Just be creative and cute and you might win!
Here is an example of what an entry might look like.
Like the deviation above, please include the white outline surrounding it. (This can be done easily with photoshop, GIMP, Painttool SAI; if you aren't able to do it, note me and I'll sort it out.)
The sticker can be anything you like! Just remember to stay cute!
Must be digital art.
Your deviation shouldn't exceed a c
