Dodge Dart Contest WinnersThe designers at Chrysler had some tough decisions to make. The semi-finalists in both of the Digital and Traditional categories presented a wide variety of approaches and techniques all inspired by the new Dodge Dart. The three winners for Digital and Traditional were selected after much deliberation and consideration. They will soon be on display in the lobby of the Dodge-Chrysler headquarters.Dodge Dart Contest Winners3 years ago in Official deviantART Contests More Like This

One of the most versatile words in the Zandali language. Vekk actually means crooked, dishonourable, but it is used as an expletive for all occasions.
Example - In Uldaman, the over-confident orc warrior in your party charges forward into a room and is attacked by seven dwarves at the same time. In the battle that follows everyone in the party comes close to being killed.
"Vekk! What the vekk are you doin', mon? You almos' got us killed, you vekking piece of vask."
A noun that means excrement. Vask is used to describe something that is unpleasant or worthless.
Example - A troublesome guild-mate tells you that he has been given special voodoo powers by the High Priest of a long-lost tribe of trolls.
"Hah! Dat is da biggest cart-load of vask I ever heard."

Police line the streets during the march to Washington Square Park. The line of policemen (pictured below) was directly behind them. I was yelled at seconds after taking this photo and instructed to get back on the sidewalk.
This post is intended to be neutral. I will display arguments from both sides.
#OccupyWallstreet has been going on for over three weeks now. It has been both supported by thousands if not millions, and put out to die by many others. The movement is made up of largely students who believe at this time that there needs to be change to Corporations, Banks, and others who are underpaying taxes, and in the back pockets of politicians, cops, etc.

deviantART has given me the opportunity to perform two Community Volunteer positions here:
I am the Science Fiction and Space Art Community Volunteer.
I am also now the new 3 Dimensional Art Community Volunteer.
One of the duties of these positions is that I can feature artwork from these categories as Daily Deviations.
I browse through these categories daily in search of deviations to feature as Daily Deviations.
This feature is to help the artist and their work gain more exposure, and it's genre and/or medium gains more community awareness as well.
But I need your help.
Have you seen a work of art here on deviantART which you have found so impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large?
Do you know an artist of whom deserves much more exposure?
Would you like to put a smile on someones face and make their

The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)Howdy friends,The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There has been an exciting development!
A couple of months ago, the folks at Chaosium Inc. [ http://www.chaosium.com/ ], the publishers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, confirmed their desire to publish The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers). When I received word I immediately began revising the now almost two-year-old text and illustrations to ensure that the print version is of the highest possible quality. I am currently about a third of the way through this process, and thought it would be good time to let you all know that the oft-requested dead tree edition of this story looks like it is actually becoming a reality.
I continue to be grateful for the encouragement of the folks around here, and I look forward to updating you all with any further news as it arrives.
In the meantime, I'm posting up the pages of The Statement of Randolph Carter (for beginning readers) I was working on when the word came through from Ch

Final Thoughts from Clive Barker
Odyssey. I can think of no better word to describe the journey that took place these past few months.
With the prologue, “They’re Mad, They Are,” I began work on a vessel that was not yet ready for sea. And on that holed ship, together we embarked over open waters towards an unknown destination.
What I then witnessed both touched and humbled me. You, the mighty crew of the HMS Ody

Please remember to follow all the rules. Giving proper credit and link back. YamPuff's watermark has to be on the piece somewhere.

So, the questions/scenarios asked are always the same and the responses/justifications are always the same, but give them a minute to sink in before replying and insulting.
(Q1) Why do you care if someone is cheating what does it have to do with you?
(A1) Well, this is a public ART site and if people are submitting art that is not actually what they claim it to be, then they are dishonest. This will annoy some people and not others. If your passionate about your work then the chances are you'll find it insulting to the artistic community as a whole.
