Thursday: Random Phrase Art Contest!Happy Thursday!Thursday: Random Phrase Art Contest!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving last week, and are rested up and ready for an art contest this week! Using a random phrase generator, your task is to make a piece of art depicting your random phrase!
Here's how to participate:
Use this random phrase generator to get a random two-word phrase. It's best to use the first one that comes up, but you may choose another.
Draw this phrase, depict it in a photograph, or write about it! Any medium is accepted. However this phrase inspires you, we want to see it!
Be sure to include your random phrase in the description of your piece! Without this, we won't be able to properly judge your piece. It's also helpful to indicate that your entry is for :dev

Within the mighty village of dAmn, a war is brewing -- a war to appease the Great Fella God!
Many in the past have sought ways to please this angry beast, and many have failed. These tales of great battle and loss are still whispered around the campfires of #devart: DaPineapple's valiant attempts to offer kingmancheng as a virgin sacrifice, or fourteenthstar's struggles to serenade Fella with her dulcet Scottish tones .. but nothing could be found to please the Great Fella God, not even a scantily clad itsfrits.
But now the tides are turning and the war is changing!
The mighty warrior Tachy-on along with the valiant troops of Community Volunteers have found a way to please Fella, and now the tribes of dAmn are competing for Fella's blessing -- and so can you!
You can help gain favor to you and your tribe by luring and trapping deviants into the great village of dAmn -- but that is not enough to please the Great Fe
How They Did It: The Story Behind the ShotHTDI:TSBTS aims to guide emerging photographers by showcasing tips, techniques, and stories generously shared by some of dA's most accomplished Photography > Animals, Plants & Nature artists. At the same time, we hope to shed light on the often overlooked amount of effort that is required to create striking images like these. Making a great photograph takes time, planning, a creative eye, and solid photography skills. What happens behind the lens is just as important as the final product!How They Did It: The Story Behind the Shot4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am sure many of you have been told "Great photo! You must have an awesome camera!" or "Wow, you sure were lucky to get that shot!" While a "good camera" and "luck" are small ingredients when creating a visual feast, we photographers would like to remind everyone that technical competency, determination, patience, and creative vision are the real meat and potatoes of any tasty photo.

I know that many deviants have had a rough past year. I know I have. For some, it was the economy, for some changes in their families and loved ones, and I know for some it has even been on deviantART. We have all had struggles, but this time of year, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, is as good a time as any to thank people for what we DO have.
In this world of little, we all have something we hold dear to our hearts. Now is the time to say thanks.
So, what I would like to invite everyone to do is in the next 48 hours (Today + Thanksgiving), fave this journal to show your support, then comment with 4 things you are thankful for:
1 thing on deviantART you are thankful for
1 thing with your family, loved ones, friends, etc. you are thankful for
1 thing in your life you are thankful for

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

November ThankstivityIt is easy to point out the flaws....November Thankstivity3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Cliques, lack of communication, bad art that gets too many views, good art that doesn't get enough views, crappy DDs, and on and on and on. The complaints people have about deviantART could fill a book the length of the Bible, but November is a month for remembering what we have to be thankful for and so I challenge you, Solutions Seekers, to take a look around and find at least three things about deviantART that make you thankful for the community.
Create a deviation or journal that explores at least three reasons you're thankful for deviantART. It can be anything from tutorials and other resources to friends you've made to great art you've stumbled across to a favorite group. Whatever it is that keeps you coming back, I want to know about it.
One entry per deviant.
