New deviantART ThumbnailsHey folks!New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may remember a while back we showed off some brand new thumbnails in #hq's Journal. Well, after many weeks of porting and tweaking based on community feedback, we finally got these brand new thumbs ready for beta testing!
The new thumbnails
UPDATE (May 19, 2012): Based on feedback received, we've updated the new thumbnails to be justified. Thumbnails are now spaced out across the rows, making them flush against the left and right sides of the page. When a browser's window is too small, justification cannot happen without leaving larger awkward spaces. In these cases, justification is turned off and thumbnails become left aligned. We think these changes present the most appealing interface for both cases.
For those of you who didn't see the new thumbs when they were previewed a month back, here's a re
Official deviantMEET Paris #2 : REPORT !! English version below (with pictures)Official deviantMEET Paris #2 : REPORT !!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Samedi dernier, Paris a accueilli le second deviantMEET Paris officiel comme vous avez pu le voir dans votre message center !
Que pourrions-nous dire à part… C'était fabuleux !
Nous avons rencontré tant de deviants et de membres du staff, ils étaient tous géniaux !
ZeldaDreams et moi sommes arrivés au Mécano Bar autour de midi.
AnaNaszynska namenotrequired itsfrits et Anoya étaient déjà là!
Après une courte discussion, la 1ère vague des membres du staff est arrivée vers 12h30 avec mattdanna Ayame-Kenoshi danlev haldron wreckling et quelques autres. Certains deviants étaient déjà arrivés (oui oui plus d’une heure à l'avance).
Le temps de mettre en place le bar, de sortir tous les goodies, les deviants avaient déjà commencé à dessiner et discuter.

Anyways, I just wanted to thank everyone for the kind birthday wishes!
I got some really cool gifts this year and I'm excited to share one in particular because it will open up a new venue of art for me. I want to start making short trailers for my characters similar to the live action Skyrim trailer, or the Mortal Kombat one. My whole life I wanted a video camera that could record in movie quality... and now I finally have it! For every photoshoot from now on I will be doing a trailer, photoshoot video, and a series of pictures like I have done in the past. Here is the Canon 600D!
As some of you already know, I have been using the same flip phone since I was 15. Well, that has finally changed! My boyfriend got me a Sidekick (which is still outdated for you kids, I know) but to me a flippy screen is cooler than a touch screen. Plus it has all these colored lights and a rolly ball that light up when I get a text. I'm starting to sound

Hello! Sorry for the lack of contact guys, but I've been very busy with rl stuff and haven't had a chance to go on DA for a monthish. Because of this I'm extending the deadline for another month so I can get back on my feet and because I see that several people have been asking me to do so. I apologize if I am slow and haven't replied to you, but I will try to ASAP whenever I get the chance to go on a computer again. <3 Any questions just note me and I will try to answer when I get through my thousand ones right now. I'm sorry I keep pushing this back but there were a lot of requests so the final deadline is the end of this month 9/30. I will be noting people whenever I have time about it reminding them

Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you

How are you today ?
In this Fractal in nature article, last time we spoke about snowflakes and Earth Views, this time we will see something kinda different as it's not really made by the nature but made by manipulating some aerial landscape photography!
to quote the article :
David Thomas Smith invites us to discover its “Anthropocene” project about the complexity of the structures and modern architecture. Composing works from aerial photographs taken by satellite handled, duplicated and reworked.

RapeI would like to address a disturbing trend Ive seen in stories posted online.Rape5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
That is, the proclivity of rape (or sexual molestation) in stories.
Rape is not edgy. Rape is not dark or cool. Rape is not a clever way to allow your character to have sex without making them seem slutty. Rape does not make your character more interesting, or stronger, or weaker, or whatever the disturbing line of reasoning behind a poor concept for a story.
It is a horrible, heinous violation of both the mind and body. People do not suffer through it and then go on to live out the rest of their lives happily ever after. It can take months, if not years, for a person to recover from such a trauma if they ever do at all.
To portray rape in such a cavalier way is not only dangerous, but offensive to real victims. To even try is playing with fire. Victims dont want to read about it, they dont want to see characters
Sucker Punch Behind The ScenesSucker Punch Behind The Scenes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Although I would love it if you watched the video, it shows no where near as much work as was put into this shoot. Some of this is embarrassing but I love reading about people's mistakes and how they overcame them. So here are mine.
I bought the costume last November, thinking I would be able to shoot the next week, edit easy peasy and be done in a month. Right.
I booked the first model several times over the course of 3 months but she flaked every time. I'm actually quite happy, as Laura turned out to be PERFECT, easy going, and an overall better model. Laura was kind enough to shoot with me twice, as I was hesitant about the poses I picked out. We kept some, threw out others and added new ones for the second time around.
For the WWI shot, I first tried to make the Notre Dame ruins by hand or find realistic models used for game tables. Turns out no one buys them anymore and thus I had no luck finding one. I att

Fear of the supposed "Mayan apocalypse" is spreading panic among people all over the world. A man in China has used his life savings to build an ark, there has been an explosion in sales of survival shelters in America, and in France, believers are preparing to converge on a mountain where aliens are apparently going to be rescuing them.
Don't be scared, though. NASA scientists have debunked the various doomsday theories out there. Give their explanations a good read through, okay?

January's Solution Sanctuary: Results (Part II)AboutJanuary's Solution Sanctuary: Results (Part II)3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
On January 1st, I challenged everyone in the deviantART community to suggest a lot of Daily Deviations. I did this for two main reasons: A) `thorns told people to put up or shut up and I decided to listen; B) I was tired of hearing people complain about supposed favoritism surrounding whose DD suggestions are accepted by the CVs.
Well, you all rose to the challenge beautifully. Over 200 suggestions were sent into the CVs by the people that participated in my little challenge. I'm dividing the feature articles up into three sections over three days so we can all take some time to peruse and read the fine work you've all found this month. The results of the points drawing will be announced in the last article.
What Do You See? Birthday Contest!We all look at clouds, net curtains and woodchip wallpaper and try and make faces right? I know I do! With that in mind we bring you:What Do You See? Birthday Contest!4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
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

The Creative Juggernaut that is BenHeine
Undoubtedly one of the most prolific, innovative, and exciting artists
exhibiting their work on deviantART has to be the amazing BenHeine.
In terms of sheer creativity and the true spirit of art as human expression that knows no bounds,
he is currently with few peers. His unique visual creations have been featured in newspapers, magazines
and other publications worldwide and over the last few years his works have begun to populate art galleries
and museums from Brussels and London to Turkey, Romania and South Korea.

The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

We survived the apocolypse!!!!Of course we knew we would... after all the Mayans never predicted the end of the world. They predicted a new age of enlightenment... so my question to you, did anyone wake up feeling more enlightened then when they went to sleep?We survived the apocolypse!!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was going to say no, but considering the moment I woke up I started applying to new jobs, I realize... I kind of did. Yesterday's terribly boring and foot-painy half work day enlightened me to the fact that I hate this job. I cannot be in this job. I have 2 more days to sort of see if I might have a change of mind, but I most definitely do NOT want to stay in this job. It is boring, and so much walking around, and my brain feels like it's completely inactive during the hours of non-stop walking.... I don't want this job.
okay so it's not exactly spiritual enlightenment I reached, but the day is young, who knows maybe later today I'll find inner peace
certainly possible with the absolute nothing my brain is doing at work.
In any case, what a
