I thought it would be nice to create welcoming gifts for the next Emoticon CV.
The goal of this project is to show that we fully support the next emoticon community volunteer, no matter who it will be.
All you have to do is to create an Emoticon that shows what the next cv could need, a bucket full of love or something completely different ;D
if you want to you could display the emote version of the next emote cv as a black emote with a questionmark and as soon as we know who the next emote cv will be, we change it to his/her oc.
Six Word Story Contest - 7 3 Month Subs to be won!...and the winners are announced here!Six Word Story Contest - 7 3 Month Subs to be won!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
So getting to the point of this article, we are kickstarting this year with a six word story contest! We have some awesome prizes and hopefully enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! Please support the contest and
Poe's Death List:icontechgnotic:Poe's Death List3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Foreword by techgnotic
Fri Oct 21, 2011, 8:23 PM
As Halloween approaches, what better way to celebrate the season when the spectral
boundaries of the Kingdom of the Spirits of the Dead touch briefly with the mystical
edges of the Domain of We the Living than to invoke the battered and hellishly bedeviled
soul of Edgar Allan Poe to guide us in communication between (his) ghostly and (our)
ghastly planes of existence.
Poe invented the “detective” story and was an early father of “sci-fi”, and he was also an
extraordinary poet, but he is best known for his Gothic tales of mystery and abject horror –
nearly all of them anchored in the apprehension of an impending cruel and unnatural death.
Edgar Allan Poe by Dr-Horrible
Poe had an inventive genius like no other in his

Hello everyone, and welcome to our second annual deviantART Staff Appreciation Week! We hope that you're as excited as we are to kick off a 7-day-long celebration of deviantART and the people who make it run smoothly for us!
For this week of contests, projects, love, points, prizes, more love, and devious shenanigans, our team of volunteers has worked very hard to organize many ways of telling the staff of deviantART, rather simply, "THANK YOU!"
So, without further ado, let's take a look at our schedule of events! If you are interested in seeing what's happening during the dASAW, you can refer to this journal! We will link to all of our pertinent news articles and post the dates of our contests and projects here!

dA Staff Appreciation Week - Emote dA HQ Project:iconstaffappreciation:dA Staff Appreciation Week - Emote dA HQ Project3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
As part deviantART Staff Appreciation Week, SanguineEpitaph and StaffAppreciation team have come up with a fun project for deviants.
Ever wonder what it's like at deviantART Headquarters? So do we! And since most of us will never know, we've decided to let our imaginations run wild and create what we think HQ would be like...if it were run by emoticons!
This project is open for anyone who can create an emote or some sort of pixel art. The project challenges you to make piece representing a part of dA HQ. You can create something specific to a real-life member, such as an emoticon of Moonbeam13, or something abstract like a general emote member of the Help Desk. We're also looking for pixel furniture (think desks, chairs, sofas), art for the walls, and other fun stuff you might imagine in the HQ offices. The StaffAppreciation team has started things out, adding some rooms and props. It's up to you to help us complete the pic
Gallery Description ProjectMost of you probably are aware that deviantART has a lot of categories. As you've seen over the past few months, we volunteers, in coordination with Moonbeam13, often help to orchestrate various changes in category structure in order to make the submission and browsing experiences simpler and more advantageous for the community.Gallery Description Project3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
That said, there's another aspect of categories which, sadly, often have been overlooked. I'm referring to the Gallery Descriptions. Over time, gallery descriptions have fallen into disarray, leaving many categories with old and outdated descriptions, others with incorrect descriptions, and yet others without a description at all.
At the moment, gallery descriptions are most prominent when submitting new deviations. However, as part of this project, we hope that they will become more evident as you browse the site. One of our goals is to make a simple, navigable category structure focusing on descriptions that are clear, concise, and consistent.

The Founders of Impressionism - Claude MonetAs part of deviantART's Art History Project, Topicality and yours truly have prepared news articles regarding Impressionism, an art movement from the 19th Century whose main characteristic is the presence of tin yet visible brush strokes to create shapes that compose an image.The Founders of Impressionism - Claude Monet3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In this article we will review Claude Monet, one of the founders of Impressionism, a brief summary of his life and some of his paintings.
Claude Monet (1840-1926)
Born in Paris on the 5th of November 1940, Oscar-Claude Monet is considered the main representative of Impressionism as he stayed true to its philosophy during his whole life as an artist. It's one of his paintings, Impression, Sunrise; which gives the movement its name after critic Luis Leroy wrote a sarcastic review of it in a Parisian newspaper called Le Charivari.
From an early age Monet showed interest in art, and he was known in the community of Le Havre for his caricatures. He then met Eugene Boudin, a la

:iconthesmallwonder:A reflection by thesmallwonder
While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall. It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.
But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.
I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.
Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph

The ABCs of Deviants: GillianIvyPresenting..The ABCs of Deviants: GillianIvy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, could you give us a brief introduction of yourself?
Okay. brief (hahaha, anyone on here who knows me, that is not a word I know). I'll start with the obvious. I'm an artist. That's a word that has defined my life, and it sounds silly saying it to other artists (since everyone on this site is an artist). But it has served to explain any silly behavior I might have and someone looks at me odd "I'm an artist" suffices.
I like to try all styles and mediums. I even write poetry (which I rarely ever share, because they're songs and I sing them). So, my gallery is full of a bit of everything. And most of the people on DA likely know me for my journal skins. Because I am CSS obsessed and want to make a skin out of everything I see.
I'm 31, I have a five year old son, Chase. I've lived a hard and soap opera style life growing up, which has shaped me into who I am today
Emoticonists on dA (8):iconkrissi001:Emoticonists on dA (8)3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I asked in a previous Journal that every Emoticonist should write a comment there.
You can still do it on this Journal if you haven't commented yet.
I sent notes to all of those who commented there and asked them a couple of questions.
And now I am going to feature all of this deviants and their answers
If you saw that I have featured you and i didn't include all of your answers/or any answers, you could write a Journal and include all of your answers there. ;D
What is your first reaction when you find a new Emoticonist?
If they are really good and just started, i will watch them and give them positive comments! if they are just a beginner, i will watch them and give them constructive feedback.
Pick 5 of your most favourite Emoticonists and describe why they are special to you, wha

Judging for the prizes will commence shortly. So many great entries, we are probably going to have to bring some extra judges in for this...
After a nice show of support, I've decide to run a mini-contest. The theme: Your OC with my OC...in love.
The contest is just as it says. Inspired by the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday, the contest is to draw a picture of one of your OCs in love with one of my OCs. The pairing is up to you. However, points will be given for keeping in mind the character's personalities. Yes, sometimes hook-ups happen arbitrarily, but I love thinking who would be compatible with who in cross-universes.
Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. futureI am proud to present you my first "official" Emoticon Contest.Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. future3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
At first I want to tell you something about the theme:
As you have read the theme is past vs. present vs. future, this means your entry has to include something from the past, present and future. The time isn't set, this means that the past could be just 1 day ago or 100 years ago it's the same with the future. For example: you could display how the emotes have lived in the past how they are living now and how they could live in the future.
Be creative and surprise me with your imagination
The Contest is divided into 2 Categories:
The first Category will be for deviants who would like to work alone. And the second category is for deviants who want to work with somebody (a collaboration category ;D) 2 deviants can work together.
But you could also enter in both categories!
Below you can find the rules of each category and what you have to keep in mind.
